Sprite Delight with Aurora Wings

Hello! I am excited to be sharing my second official project on the Aurora Wings Challenge DT. Challenge #65 is "Sprite Delight." The Sprites are the reason why I fell in love with Aurora Wings in the first place. They are all so adorable, detailed, and expressive. Well, I recently got a Silhouette Cameo, and as I went through my Sprite collection for this challenge and saw the Pineapple Sprite, I knew I just had to use my Cameo to cut out a pineapple card.

I colored this sweet Sprite with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then found cardstock in my stash to coordinate with the colors I used. Then I did a search online and found this PERFECT free Pineapple Mini Book SVG file by Kim Watson to cut the card out. It was exactly what I was looking for! The "Greetings" I created myself with a font I had. I'd like to note, that I cut a second piece of the solid background, so that I could create my card back with it. I just scored it about 1/4" from the …

Wishing You Luck

Greetings! Today I have a new shaker card featuring the Shooting Star Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. I made this card to give my husband a bit of encouragement on a difficult day. I had just recently gotten the beautiful Luna the Halloween Cat stamp set from Hero Arts (I've wanted this set since October), and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to use it.

I used the stretching version of Luna as my jumping off point. I stamped her with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink from Imagine, and fussy cut her out. The die I used for my shaker window is from the Stampendous fresh Peony Cutting Die Set.

I knew this was the perfect Sparkle Blend for this card, because of all the black, gold, and hints of opalescent sequins. It has a very cool vibe to it, and works really well for masculine cards. My sentiment is also from the Luna set, and I embossed it with Champagne embossing powder. My top layer is gray, and I splattered Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz, Tuxedo Black Fireworks! S…


Spring is almost here! I can feel it. And I cannot wait! Today, I wanted to share a card I made that feels very much like Spring to me. Although in my area, Cyclamen are houseplants, the stamp and stencil I used makes me think of all the wonderful plants that will soon be sprouting in my garden.

Shaker Cat

Greetings! Today I have a new card for Doodles Paper Playground. I decided to make a shaker card, and I did it in a way I haven't attempted before. It took me a little time to get everything just how I wanted, but when it was finished, I was really happy with it. I used the Rosey Gold Sparkle Blends for this card, which I think worked out great with the colors of my background. This particular Sparkle Blend has lots of pink and rose gold sequins, plus teeny little sequins, crystals, and micro beads. I especially love the big pink stars!

I really wanted to use the Laurel Burch Tribal Cats stamp set, because the dies would cut out a nice big window for my shaker area. I started off by die cutting my black cardstock with the 3 pieces of the cat. Then I cut a piece of acetate (from the packaging of a stamp) and temporarily adhered it to the back of the black cardstock. I set my cat head up on an acrylic block, inked it with StazOn ink and flipped the cardstock and acetate combo over o…
