I've got a "fun fold" card to share today using one our latest releases, called Flying Boy. I've made an easel card, using an easel die. The cool thing is that it will lie flat and fit in a regular envelope. The first picture shows it standing like a normally folded card.
In the second picture, you can see it standing in the easel style.
Here is a peek at the whole latest release! They are all so much fun.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
I couldn't let today pass by without sharing a fun shamrock card with you!!
I really really really wanted to make that shamrock wobble...I tried so hard to get some wire attached to the back...guys...it just wasn't having it this time. I'll have to try again later.
But I kept this card overall very simple. I did some fun stripey stamping for the background with a few extra fun bits embossed in white and gold. There is also some gorgeous gold splatters to check out on that background too. It's so fun to splatter that stuff, though I forget about it sometimes. But it really does make a huge impact on a fun card like this!
Nothing fancy with my Little Shamrock Dancer. I colored her in with pencils and cut her out with a stitched frame so I could mount the whole panel up on some fun foam for great dimension. A simple embossed sentiment finished off the card!!
Have a fabulous St. Patrick's Day! Be safe!! <3 Emily

And please enjoy some fun flying inspiration from the team!
Hello and happy Friday everyone! I am here today to share a little inspiration with you. I don't know about you, but I am ready for spring and for the temperatures to stay warmer! I decided to use Ladybug Carnation for my project today.
I intended this card to be monochromatic, but it didn't stay that way! Funny how that happens! I love to combine red, black, and white, so I guess I should have known.
Don't forget about our challenge. The theme this month is to add circles, so I have polka dots all over my card!
Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to come back next week for new inspiration from one of my teamies!
Happy Friday everyone!!
Welcome back to another Fun Friday!
Today I decided to share with you some no-line coloring on one of Sami's gorgeous images!
For this card, I used the Beauty Roses image and printed it off several times at varying sizes.
Now, I'm no expert at the no-line coloring technique, but Sami's images are fabulous to give it a shot! Be sure to print off your image with a really light outline so that it fades away with the coloring. But don't print them too light or you won't actually be able to see what you're doing...(ask me how I know...)
With your images printed, you're ready to start coloring. I like to start with the darkest color in the shadow areas and work out to the lightest color, which would be your highlights or where the light would hit the image. In this case for the roses, the highlights are on the tip of each petal.
I decided to use my Inktense pencils for a little watercoloring. I absolutely love how they turned out! There's a bit of purple in some of the blue roses which helps give them just a little bit of character.
To finish off the card, I die cut out a stitched frame and mounted that above my panel, which has my sentiment white heat embossed in the center. Then just arranged my fussy cut flowers around the outside. I added foam tape to some and adhered others flat to the panel so that they had different depths.
Since our challenge this month is to add some sparkle, I added a bunch of glitter dots and Perlen pen around the outsides of the flowers, and also traced along the darkest shadows in the centers of the roses with a shimmer pen. This card is really sparkly when it catches the light!! We'd love to have you join in our challenge, or share your projects on our Facebook page!! Thanks for stopping by!! <3 Emily
