Kittys and rainbows

I finished up this card yesterday and was going to post it but it was so dark by the time I came upstairs to take the photo.I know the orange color looks real bright, but it really isn't. I tried to make the colors as close to what the card looks like but sometimes it doesn't come out that way when you're fixing the photo. I'm not sure if you can see it but the word "hello" has a blue hello under the orange hello.

Here's a closer look at Hello Kitty and the rainbow. This butterfly die is so cute that I used it again for this card.

Supplies:

Sizzix Hello Kitty butterfly sizzlt die, rainbow sizzlit die, Sizzix embossing folder, Hello Kitty word, phrase deco strip die.

Have a great Friday and weekend!!!

Hello Kity butterfly

Another quick project that I made today. This would make cute favors for birthday parties. It's real easy and fast to put together. I think it's because the die is much smaller and makes the piecing quicker. I used some older dies to make this. *Edit* This is not a card, it is a Sizzix envelope die - Kit #4 using the movers & shapers window pane die. Sorry for not being clear on this.The wings are actually popped up from the base. Here's a closer picture of the wings so you can see it.

Supplies:

Sizzix Hello Kitty butterfly die, Kit #4 die, Movers & Shapers window pane die, Frills deco strip die, acetate for the window, and M&M's candies. You can use other candies to fill the packet.

We have more Kitty dies coming in to the store next week. Have a great evening!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Hi everyone! Happy Valentine's Day!!! Well, yesterday we received a shipment from Tsukineko. We now have the full line of Memento markers in the store. Also in, Memento black ink pads for you Copic lovers. This ink works very well with Copics.

This is a card that I made using one of the new 3-D pop-up dies from Sizzix. The dies should be shipping sometime in April. This one is using 3 hearts. The Hello Kitty die is also a new Sizzlit die and should be arriving in the store Monday or Tuesday along with that Hello Kitty phrase die. I left this sample at the store so don't forget to check it out while you're there. Sorry the image of the card is kind of small but I couldn't figure out how to make it bigger.

Have a great Saturday!!!
