Pink & Black Pocket Letter

Hi friends! Sorry I have been away for so long. My family lost someone so dear to us and it has been a rough few weeks. I needed a distraction so I am popping in to share this pocket letter I made for a new friend that I met at the Pocket Letter Pals Valley Girl Meet Up last month. She likes pink, black, bling, butterflies, coffee, and her spotted pit bull mix pup. So I used all that info to put this together.

For the tag I used the Indie Art cartridge for the butterfly and made the wings pop up. The top row I used a card with the roses cut from the Artfully Sent cartridge. I stamped it with a sentiment from the CDD Blooming For You stamps. I got the purses from Paisley and the Formal Occasions cartridges. I added some bling and used the CDD Pocket Pieces Hi Dies for most of the stitched rectangles in my PL. The hello with the butterfly is from the Lyrical Letters cartridge. I used glitter cardstock for the pink and the white and added mini pearls to the butterfly. 

The center row I used the Artfully Sent cartridge for the beautiful cutout. The butterfly and sequins are from Craftin Desert Divas. The center pocket is sooooo sparkly I wish it showed up better in the photos. I used all glitter cardstock from DCWV and the Monogram is from the Art Philosophy cartridge. The sparkle cutout is from the Disney Tinkerbell & Friends cartridge.

The bottom row is my favorite. I used this cute pup from the Animal Kingdom cartridge and colored him with my Spectrum Noir markers to look like her pup. I added brown pearls for his eyes and stamped the sentiment & paw using the CDD Animal Antics stamps. I made the center shaker with the cut from the Wild Card cartridge. The letter inside the shaker is from the Sweethearts cartridge.  And finally the pup with the thought cloud and bone I also colored with my Spectrum Noirs, I made using a die set from My Creative Time.

For the back I made a bunny card to tuck my letter into with the Sugar and Spice cartridge.  I filled the pockets with paperclips I made with the Love You A Latte cartridge, some prima flowers, die cuts from Craftin Desert Divas, twine and some stickers.

Here is a close up of the sparkly clips I made.

Happy Fall Y'all

Hello friends! Today I am posting on the Craftin Desert Divas blog and sharing this Fall themed card with you. I just love the fall colors and had so much fun coloring up this sweet image from the Beary Thankful stamps using my Spectrum Noir markers.

I wanted to keep the image as the focal point and started out thinking I was going to make a clean and simple card. (I don't think I have successfully accomplished this ever, LOL!) Then I leaned towards a masculine look going for simple patterned paper with the orange and brown gingham and the kraft card stock. Then.... feeling it was too plain I added a sparkly bow and a sprinkle of sequins and ended up with this. CAS and masculine.... very challenging for me haha!

I used some chalk to rosy up his cheeks and added some cute freckles with my white gel pen. I colored the handle and wheels with metallic silver and added sparkles to the red in his hat. Finally I added this perfect sentiment from the Hey Pumpkin stamps. The stitched layers are from the Fancy Frame dies and I inked the edges with Distress Ink.

Well that is my simple card and I hope you like it!!
