Dance Like Nobody's Watching

I've always love that saying " Dance like nobody's watching "  So I knew it would be the perfect sentiment for my project.  I paired it up with some beautiful handmade roses, borders and of course the stunning frame.  It turned out so elegant.  I love how detailed and fine the designs can be with Cheery Lynn Dies and I think this card really showcases that aspect.

Years ago I had a small rose bush called " Hot Tamale".  The small roses were hot pink and orange and it remains one of my favorite roses of all times.  I really tried to capture the " Hot Tamale" vibe with my roses by shading my card stock.  There are so many different ways you can add depth to your coloring of flowers, chalk, inks, watercolor pencils and even markers.  Have some fun and experiment with your coloring/shading.

Class Act Mini Book

Who doesn't love mini books?  They are so much fun to make and I just love all the little details that mini books offer.  This was a mini book I made for my son Cole using the Class Act Collection from KaiserCraft.  

With all of KaiserCraft's collections they have a product called Collectables.  They are die cuts that coordinate with the collections and they make clustering so easy.  Use a little dimensional tape for various depths , some of the collectables and you have interest in your project in no time. 

ll see you on Friday with a another great project using Cheery Lynn Dies.

Dreams Can Come True

This is a card I created for KaiserCraft's Design Team using the collection Marigold.  Orange is my favorite color so, this collection was one I was really drawn to.  I had seen a card created using the accordion background and adapted that idea to this card. 

Hope your week is wonderful and hope you get some great creative time!
