2 Clean and Simple Cards with Sunburst Die

I absolutely LOVE the new Sunburst Die from LDRS Creative!
It nicely cover a card front with a small margin around each side.
It makes it easy to cut a pretty sunburst and circle in the center (along with a frame around the circle).
Whether used with patterned paper or cardstock, just die cutting the sunburst creates a big impact on a card!
Other than these two clean and simple cards, there are many uses for this die! You could fill the small circles with gems, you could fill them with glitter glue, or you could emboss the die rather than cut it.
The whole LDRS summer release is fantastic, so you must check it out! The supplies I used for these cards are below. Thanks for stopping by!

How To Make Foil Splatters on a Layout

Foil splatters are the perfect embellishment for pool, beach, sprinkler and other water activity themed layouts.
The Good Day Sunshine collection from Echo Park is perfect to combine with the splatters too!
The splatters themselves are very easy to make using Therm O Web's iCraft Deco Foil Adhesive Pen and Foil Transfer Sheets.
Combine both with lots of small photos (like I use in my Big Picture Classes class, Small Photos Make a Big Impact) and a fun die cut title.
Check out this video on the Therm O Web YouTube channel to see how I created the foil splatters and pulled the rest of the layout together:

Foiled Window on Layouts

This month, the Therm O Web Design team was invited to take part in the CSI scrappbook challenge! The "case file" has so much inspiration from colors to use to patterns and even recommended a grid design.

I love a good challenge and created this layout to go along with it!
One of the elements of the challenge was to include stripes. I decided to use the Therm O Web Distressed Lines Clear Toner Sheets and cover them with Jade and Denim foils (everything will be linked down below if you are curious!).
I also used the adorable Simple Stories line Hello Summer.
If you want to see how I created the foiled window panels on this layout, check out my video on the Therm O Web YouTube Channel here:

Everything I used is listed below! Thanks for stopping by!

Seeing Stars with Queen and Co.

I am loving the Queen and Co. Star Shaped Shaker Kit! Stars are one of my favorite shapes.
They are perfect for congratulatory cards, birthday cards and more1

They are great for 4th of July cards too. 
 They would be great for Labor Day coming up as well or Memorial Day.

Bright and Cheerful with Hero Arts

This week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Bright and Cheerful using Hero Arts supplies. It just so happens that I recently got a new floral stamp set from Hero Arts and hadn't yet used it, so it was about time!
 I stamped the Nasturtiums in diagonal corners and colored them with Copic markers. I also used a different Hero Arts stamp and die set to create the sentiment. The sequins are a mix from Buttons and Galore's new 28 Lilac Lane collection!
I was surprised at how much I liked the peach combined with the bright, yellow greens of the vines. Since it is my birthday today, I needed a few thank you cards so this was the perfect opportunity to both use a new stamp set, practice my coloring AND make a card to send!
If you are interested in the supplies I used, they will be linked down below. Thanks for stopping by!

Queen and Co NEW Metallic Dots and Cord

There are so many fabulous NEW products available at Queen and Co right now! Check them all out in this video unboxing:

One of my favorite new products is the Metallic Dots! They have so much shine and dimension in one tiny package!
Another favorite? The cord! It is kind of a stretchy string that is so different than most of the trims available in the papercrafting industry and the bright colors are awesome!
I paired them with some Waffle Flower rainbow stamps for a clean and simple design.
I have lots more cards coming with these and all the other Queen and Co NEW products so be sure to keep an eye on the blog and my YouTube channel. For a peek at these products, check out the list down below!

Rainbow Stamping Techniques and Rainbow Patterned Paper

This week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is Anything Goes using Doodlebug Design products!
 My favorite Doodlebug Design products are their rainbow patterned papers. I thought it would be fun to combine them with a few rainbow stamping techniques to make a few cards.
 I used mini ink cubes to craete a rainbow stamped image.
 I used the MISTI to stamp a sentiment mutiple times in a rainbow of inks.
And, I used small image stamps to embellish a simple black ink sentiment. Check out all the techniques and how to put together these three cards in this video:
