Keep Calm and Shine On Card

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a great day!  I just came in from a round of golf with my sister-in-law.  I'm thoroughly enjoying my days off this week.  Finding a lot of time to catch up on some stuff and relax.

I had a lot of fun creating today's card.  I used a lot of products that are new to my stash.  This card really makes me happy....as is the case with most things that include glitter.  The glitter letters from Amy Tangerine and the superfine glitter paper {I picked this up at Michael's} are lots of fun.   I love putting a shiny twist on a popular color combination {yellow, gray and white}.  I used silver as one of my grays.

I have a video below walking you through the entire creation of this card.   You'll also find links to the products used to create this card below.

Don't forget, when ordering at Lifestyle Crafts you can use the coupon code GLITTER to get 20% off your order!

Longing for more inspiration?  Check out the Lifestyle Crafts Blog today to see a great project grouping created by yours truly.  Loved this grouping from the minute I started it.  It includes some of my favorite products from Lifestyle Crafts along with a favorite color combination {Navy, Gray, Coral and Cream}.

What are you up to today?  I'd love to hear from you.

Hello Sunshine Cloud Window Card

Hello everyone!  If the weather near you has been anything like the weather here in Sunny California, then you'll find this card appropriate!  And if not, maybe it will get you longing for warmer, sunnier days!  And tell me...who could resist some white glittery clouds?

A couple months ago you may have seen me wish (via Twitter) for Lifestyle Crafts to make some nesting clouds... and wouldn't you know...just like a fairy godmother was listening to me...my wish came true!  I love these nesting clouds from Lifestyle Crafts {you may remember Lifestyle Crafts as QuicKutz}.

I used several die cuts from Lifestyle Crafts to create this card.  And this week, August 20-26th, 2012 you can get free shipping when you shop at Lifestyle Crafts!  Don't forget to enter coupon code GLITTER to save 20% too!  That makes for a fabulous deal on some dies you're sure to use over and over again!  {Just for fun, I've added a whole collection of links to some of my favorite Lifestyle Crafts items below.}

I have a video below walking you through the entire creation of this card.  It's really quite simple...but the vellum window is a special touch.  Super easy to accomplish!

Have a wonderful day!
