Top Dog Dies- Spring!!

Good Morning and Happy Friday!! This is my weekly Top Dog Dies post and we are thinking Spring!! So what do you think of when you hear the word Spring.... flowers, warmth, sunshine

One of the things that I think of are soft spring colors and the birds chirping!!


So I created a fairly clean card highlighting those things. The card base was created using Top Dog Dies Signature Antique die. I cut two, scored a line on the base towards the top, and adhered with sticky tape. The papers are Heidi Swapp's Dreamy and they were die cut using the same Signature Authentique die. The bird is from Top Dog Dies Little Birds die set. On the close up you will the tiny dots that outline the image... LOVE!! To finish off the Waltzingmouse sentiment was heat embossed with white and I added a couple gold glitter enamel dots and one with color.

Here's a close up of that sweet bird!!


Don't forget Top Dog Dies just released 6 new dies.... go check them out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

Color Throwdown #327- Love you to pieces!!

Good Morning... it's time for another Color Throwdown challenge. Wanda is bringing us the colors this week.... and there's purple :) Honestly, if you've ever stopped by my blog, you would know that "purple" just throws me for a loop! I think these girls have forced helped me get over that!!


I loved the whole mosaic thing going on and tried to recreate that with my card.



My colors are a little bit darker. Used Lil Inkers Stitched Hearts and the sentiment is from Piece of Me. Stamped the background with SU's Gorgeous Grunge to add a little sumthin'- I so struggle with totally white backgrounds... it's an affliction I tell ya'!!

We’re also joined by January’s guest designer: Bonnie Sharp.  Bonnie- Loved having you this month!!

Top Dog Dies- LOVE!!


Happy, Happy Friday!! Time to show some Top Dog Dies. I'm still playing with the Heart Album Mini Finisher dies and Vintage Alphabet dies. This week I made a couple of 4 x 4 note cards. This size is perfect as a gift card or tucked into a lunch box for someone special.

I fell in love with this sweet envelope die and tiny heart. There are so many different dies in the Heart Album Finishers die set... perfect to use on their own. On this one I finished the inside as you can see above.

 

Aren't those letters fabulous... love the font.


Another CAS card using the same colors and the Vintage Alphabet die.

BTW.... Top Dog Dies just released 6 new dies.... you can see them HERE. Elephants, feathers, birds, borders, tags, and a background die for the already released corset die. I'll be posting some cards over the next few days using the new dies... so, stop back by!!

Color Throwdown # 326- Hip Hip Hooray!!

Happy, Happy Wednesday... it's hump day and I'm hoping it goes by fast, really, really fast!! The first two days have been exceptionally interesting :)

This week's colors are brought to you by yours truly!! I was dreaming of spring in January :)


I need a wall for these...

My original idea was beautiful flowers and vases... but, this is what I created.


Thought the colors would work well for a bright Birthday card and wanted to play with this PTI Phrase Play set. Added a little washi tape, cheesecloth, and enamel dots.

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started.
