Fun Friday with Emily!!

Hello and welcome back to another Fun Friday!!
Today I am sharing a super simple and adorable card using an older Sami Stamps image, but one that I absolutely love because in it's simplicity, there is so much that can be done with it!
This is the bowtie from the Striped Tie Set and I just love it!  It's the perfect bowtie!

I decided to print it off several times and colored it up in some fun masculine colors before adding it to am embossed background.  I also wanted to add a bit more embossing since that is our current theme for April, which you still have a few days left to enter!  So I heat embossed my sentiment and flagged the ends.  Then arranged everything straight down the center of my card and added a few little black dots for extra detail. 

And that's it!  Really simple and still adorable!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a fabulous weekend!! <3

Fun Friday with Rae Ann

Hello!  It is my turn to provide you with a little inspiration today.  I have used Flying Girl from the new release.  She was colored with Copic markers and I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut her out.

In case you missed the post about the new release, all of the new stamps are below.  They are so much fun!

Our current challenge ends very soon, but you can still play along by using blue and a Sami Stamps image.  You have a chance to win some images, so why not create something?!

Fun Friday with Kathy!

Hi Friends! 

I've got a "fun fold" card to share today using one our latest releases, called Flying Boy. I've made an easel card, using an easel die. The cool thing is that it will lie flat and fit in a regular envelope. The first picture shows it standing like a normally folded card. 

 In the second picture, you can see it standing in the easel style. 

Here is a peek at the whole latest release! They are all so much fun.

And, don't forget there is still time to enter into our current challenge #47 "Use Blue".

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope  you have a fantastic weekend!

Fun Friday with Emily!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
I couldn't let today pass by without sharing a fun shamrock card with you!!
I really really really wanted to make that shamrock wobble...I tried so hard to get some wire attached to the just wasn't having it this time.  I'll have to try again later.

But I kept this card overall very simple.  I did some fun stripey stamping for the background with a few extra fun bits embossed in white and gold.  There is also some gorgeous gold splatters to check out on that background too.  It's so fun to splatter that stuff, though I forget about it sometimes.  But it really does make a huge impact on a fun card like this!

Nothing fancy with my Little Shamrock Dancer.  I colored her in with pencils and cut her out with a stitched frame so I could mount the whole panel up on some fun foam for great dimension.  A simple embossed sentiment finished off the card!!

Have a fabulous St. Patrick's Day!  Be safe!!
<3 Emily

Fun Friday with Rae Ann

Hello and happy Friday everyone!  I am here today to share a little inspiration with you.  I don't know about you, but I am ready for spring and for the temperatures to stay warmer!  I decided to use Ladybug Carnation for my project today.

I intended this card to be monochromatic, but it didn't stay that way!  Funny how that happens!  I love to combine red, black, and white, so I guess I should have known.

Don't forget about our challenge.  The theme this month is to add circles, so I have polka dots all over my card!

Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to come back next week for new inspiration from one of my teamies!
