Clean and Simple 4 Challenge Day 1

I love these faux ceramic tiles you can make using Inchies! I've seen this technique done previously, so was happy one of my favorite designers featured this technique in Online Card Class. The dies used for this technique are from Memory Box, inks from Colorbox.

Papertrey Ink: Make It Monday #199: Confetti Garlands

Papertrey's MIM video is from Betsy Veldman this week, encourage us to use a confetti garland in our creation. I threaded each felt die-cut onto clear mono-filament thread, which you can see if you enlarge the second photo. I took Betsy's advice and glued mine down in a few strategic locations, so it feels more secure on the from of the card.  I'm can't decide - do these Little Bitty Bird felt die-cuts qualify as confetti?

PTI January 2015 Blog Hop Challenge/ Clean and Simple #4

The Papertrey January Blog Hop theme this month is all about hearts. Timely, considering Valentine's Day is just three weeks away. And our 25th wedding anniversary follows shortly after that. This card is one I made as a possibility to give to my DH. As it is our silver anniversary this year, I am toying with making a different card that uses more silver in it's design. Will see if I get all my other V-Day cards made first. 
Can't believe it is the 25th of January already! What happened to all those resolutions we made just three weeks ago? Did you keep any of yours? I wish I had kept at least a couple of mine. For starters, I would certainly have made a 2015 blog post before today.  I've been stamping a ton, but photographing and blogging are not nearly as enjoyable for me. I strive to improve!
