Love You Card Tutorial

Hello my friends! Today I have a card tutorial for you using the All For You bundle from RG. 

The Bundle includes: Amazing Blooms (MASD-001); All You (SCD-026); Sweet Dreams (SCE-001); Pierced Squares (SCD-008) with an ORIGINAL PRICE of $54.96. But as part of the RG Weekly Deal, the bundle costs only $24.95 this week only. What a steal!

The supplies I used on this card are (affiliate links):
Journey Glaze
Gold Silk

Now let me walk you through the steps. 

1. Stamp the flowers with Pretty Plum and the leaves with Berry Black True Color Fusion Inks on Whip Cream cardstock.
2. Diecut the leaves and flowers with corresponding dies.
3. Diecut the pierced square (medium) out of blue cardstock.
4. Diecut the sentiment ' Love You' from Oatmeal Cookie cardstock

5. Attach the diecut flowers and leaves behind the pierced square diecut.
6. Trim Whip Cream cardstock to 8.5" x 5.5". Fold in half to make 4.25" x 5.5" card. Attach the embellished pierced square on the card.
7. Attach the sentiment diecuts and sequins with Journey Glaze as shown.
8. Splatter some Gold Silk on the card.

Here are some close-up shots of the card.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and don't let this fun deal pass you by!

Book Review: Besties

There is so much we don't know. 
But it helps that we know each other.

This quote from Leah Reena Goren's book, Besties speaks volumes in a few words. Besties is a whimsically illustrated little book with a humorously presented heartfelt message about female friendships.

We're together when it doesn't matter at all.
And when it really, really does.
These are the friendships that survive many tests and help us make decisions, big or small, and carry us through hard times. These are the people we can share and relive our fondest memories with.

She's there when no one else is. 
She's your bestie.  
She is special y'all and she'll love this book!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.

All Women's Problems Start With Men...

"All Women's Problems Start With Men..." - When I first saw this, I laughed my head off!!! 

And if you are a card maker, you can probably add making manly cards to that list of woes... 

Well, I hope this helps

at least just with the card making bit!

My new website

Guys, I am so glad to announce that I have a new website: mousaha.com. It's work in progress... but happy to have started this journey. 

The goal is to separate my personal art as in my illustrations, paintings, prints, kits, classes, etc. from my design team work that I do.  

I'll continue to blog my design team posts here. 

And if you want to follow my personal art endeavors and life and family, you are invited to visit my online home and follow me at mousaha.com. I will have a comfy chair and a hot cup of tea waiting for you there. 

So, stop by and let me know what you think :)
