New colorburst and Ranger enamel dots!


How does some new colorbursts colors and Ranger enamel dots sound together? I think they make your cardmaking very easy and fun!! Sometimes you just need a card ASAP.....I took a piece of watercolor paper and sprinkled some of those new powders on, cerulean blue, olive green, gamboge and cadminium scarlet.....Hope I spelled that all okay, I have linked them all up so they are easy for you to find!
I added the congratulations die from Avery Elle in black and then added some Ranger enamel dots, they are so easy to work with and dry like really shiny! Black classic cherry, electric  lime, lemonburstand caribean coast....a mouthful! 
                                   Hope you like this card and will get some crafty time!!
                                                  Till next time, Anja

Working with Plaid

Good morning, everyone. Today, I wanted to show you a layout that I did for the store using four different Plaids. Photo Play has a collection called "Mad for Plaid" and I had two of these papers with different plaids on the back of each paper. So, I first created a "frame" on the layout by using Plaid 1 and 2 on the far left side of page 1 and Plaid 3 and 4 on the far right side of Page 2.

Next, I cut the remaining papers in to 3 inch squares and included two different coloured Cardstocks which were the predominant colours in three of the plaids. I used the MFT die for Tags and Banners to add some interest and also some of the Carpe Diem "Posh" Bits and Pieces and Stickers. To finish it off, I used the Ranger Enamel Accents called: Electric Lime, Cheese Puff, and Lemon Puff.

Here are the materials that I used:


And here is the layout:


So remember not to be afraid of using different plaids on a layout. Just select a predominant and secondary colour to focus on and your layout will look great.

Snowman Postage


Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you my card for this coming Wonderful Wednesday. I have had this die for sometime and I thought  I need to get it out and make something with it. I am using the die from Cottage Cutz called Snowman Postage. The pink card stock is embossed with a embossing folder called Snowfall.  I cut the snowman from craft foam and Bazzill Pearl Foil (just new in store).  Behind the Snowman I used a vellum I got from Crate Paper's Cute Girl line. It gives the look of confetti behind the snowman with out doing a shaker card.




Hope to see you this Wednesday.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Kim

I love these!!!!! Oh yeah baby into my basket they go!

These are a must have in my stash! I love them! 



Some find it difficult to use pop up elements in a layout. 
I love adding dimension and layers to my pages. 
You can paint, spray and glitter them up! 





Here is an example of a layout I created last year with wood snowflakes 
(Please note this is a layout is from 2015 not all items used in this layout are still in stock) 




Hope this gave you a little inspiration
