CAS Card with Dies

Happy Valentine's Day, friends!
I am sharing a CAS card and I will keep it short and sweet. 
 All My Hearts from Penny Black
What do you think? When you have dies like that, it is easy to create.
When I created this card, I thought of the color combo....
What do the images remind me of? Chocolate!
 A little weird, I know. Godiva Chocolate actually. 
So I based the colors on the packaging that I envisioned and used warm tone...
Hope your day is full of love and sweetness.
Thank you for stopping by!

Create a Card and Tags with One PS Die

Hello friends!
You may have seen my latest take with One Layer for SSS Wednesday Challenge (see here). Well, I am not done ! LOL. I am popping in to share how I create one card and two tags with one single die.
Single Rose Wise Die (Paper Smooches )

 I came up with two colored tags. The orange tag was made with Heidi Swapp Creamsicle Mix Media Color Shine on Watercolor paper. The pink tag was made with pattern paper. The leaves are from Bazzille paper.
I added black spatter for the dramatic effect and twines seem to tie it all up nicely. 
With all the left over pieces, I ended up creating a card.
you+ me

The intricate rose die cut is perfect for this CAS card. A little Rose die like this is definitely a good one to have in your stash! I had a blast playing with it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

TREATS-Inspired Card

Hello friends!
Once in a while, I think of certain food when I make cards!
 When I stared at the Doily Circle Die (Waffle Flower), I thought of the delicate Pizzelle cookies (see my food post here). I decided to have another play with it. This die is simply too "delicious". 
I decided to use it as a stencil AND use the die as well. This was the result.
After I colored the doily die with Distress Inks. I purposely left the doily die a bit off set and let the white show through. I love the color combo of Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberries and Carved Pumpkin ( love the food names!). While I was at it, I added the scalloped border from Winnie & Walter's

I think if I don't already have this card blog, I would likely start a food blog... (just saying).
Well, something's gotta give, right? This card is IT.
