ICS Blog Hop – Happy Mother’s Day

Hail to all mothers, everywhere! Mothers are the heart of our homes and close to our hearts. Mothers Day is not for a couple of months but we are honoring mothers this month for our Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop! Welcome to the hop from either Facebook or Nichole’s Blog. I love Nichole’s work and she is one of my very best friends ever!! {{mmmwwwaahhhhh friend!}


My card is using a color combination that I just love. The Cherry and Blues are so complimentary! The layout is clean and simple but small elements such as the texture folder and the rhinestones really take this up just a notch.


I love the large Butterfly diecut and am so excited that these will soon be available again. I think they are just perfect for spring and summer and are a stunning piece to any projects!


Now, you are hopping off to Tina’s Blog and see what she has in store! Thank you for stopping by. Please leave me love in the form of a comment and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss a post!

Inspire Create Share Blog Hop August 2014

I cannot believe how fast the time flies! Here it is, another monthly Inspire, Create, Share blog hop. Welcome to those who have arrived here from Tina’s Blog! For everyone else you can start here and travel in the full circut around to all the other bloggers in our hop.

This month’s theme is black and white, with a pop of color if you choose! This card was inspired by a card that I created for our ICS Blog Hop Swap at the Inspire, Create, Share 2014 Convention. Here is our group photo, taken the last day of Convention. It was an amazing experience to be there in Salt lake with 4,000 other demonstrators and I am already planning next years trip. I would love to have you join my team and we can enjoy it together!

So, now for my card! I wanted to give the original design a little tweaking and add a small pop of color so here is what I came up with~

The card base is white, which is hard to see in this photo because of the backdrop. I used the Large Polka Dot embossing folder (#133739) on 2/3rd of the top white layer and stamped the sentiment  which comes from the set Trust God (#132094/126702) right above on the non embossed portion. The flowers were stamped in Basic Black from the Petite Petals set (#133152/133155) and the 3 lower flowers were popped up with  Dimensionals (#104430). The final pop of color is the Lost Lagoon Stitched Stain Ribbon (#133672) and is a favorite of mine in ANY color!
