You Make Life Sweet

Hi there!  Last week I was the Featured Facebook Fan on Card Positioning Systems.  YAY!  You can find sketch 175 right HERE, which is the sketch I was assigned to work with.

I REALLY struggled with the grid pattern on the background, but thought of a fun and different way to incorporate that into my card: a glitter grid!  To do that, I used sticky sheets, and cut the mat into 9 symmetrical sections (with a type A stamper, it's all about symmetry you know? LOL).  Then, I removed one section of the layer at a time and glittered all outer sections with a different color of glitter (which is no problem when you have TONS of glitter like I do LMBO).

I used the Pure Innocence stamp set, Make Mine a Double for this card.  I wanted to use sweet little girl colors, so I grabbed my Basic Grey Kioshi.  Little know fact: I hardly EVER use purple.  I just don't...  I added glitter to her hair barrette and the heart on her dress.  I added 2 mm Swarovski crystals to the buckles of her shoes. 

Here, you can see the distinctive colors of glitters on my mat.  It was a fun (and messy) addition to my card. :)

I made a flat, folded, paper bow thingy and added a 3 mm Swarovski crystal to the center of the center. 

My daughter, Madeline, ADORES ice cream.  Her fave (and preferred brand) is Blue Bell ice cream.  She loves Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and eats it by the gallon.  LOL 

Question of the Day: What is your favorite brand/flavor of ice cream?


  1. Love all the special little details of this card; and I really like your paper bow!
    Fav ice cream? Mint chocolate chip.

  2. Cute card; LOVE the gems on her shoes - too, too cute.

    Baskin Robbins Chocolate - THE BEST!!! (inho)

  3. I adore that little paper bow you made with the crystal in the center-so sweet!
    I love Ben & Jerry's Phish Food and am so happy it only comes in pints around here or I'd be in big trouble! :)

  4. Caaa-UTE!!
    Ice cream:
    Starbucks Java Chip Frap

  8. LOVE that glitter border -- just wish I could see MORE of it! Glittery squares are right up my alley! Ummm, ice cream? I love Coffee flavored ice cream. No particular favorite brand. Haagen Daz is good. Locally, I really like Braum's ice cream, too -- last few times I've been there, I've been on a Mint Chocolate Chip kick. I also love Buttered Pecan, Neopolitan, and good ol' orange sherbet!

    Mmmmm... now I want some -- of ALL of those! Have you ever tried Blue Bell's sundae ice cream or the birthday cake flavor? YUM!

    Okay. Now I have to get back to studying with ice cream on the brain!!!
