Shh Quiet

We are back with another challenge over at  Inspired By card challenges.   
This week was a fun challenge and took me a bit to decide how to approach it.  Originally, I planned a baby-themed card but decided to go with a get well card for our uncle.  

Shh Quiet get well card
inside sentiment: Marine resting (with one eye open of course)
 I love this CUTE DIGITAL STAMP and have colored him several times more for other cards, so fun!
Check out all the cards and a layout from the team this week, they're awesome!

IB Gallery Inspiration Week One and Two

Good afternoon! 
Last week I decided to start a fun feature (that will be shared here on my blog and on my Instagram: danni.reid) and share how people in the gallery and around the industry inspire me.



The first card I chose was shared in the Inspired By Bring in the New Year gallery.
I was inspired by Vicky Hayes from Crafting Clare
Her cute card was so beautifully designed and perfect for the theme.  I was inspired by her design and created a card inspired by it.

Here is her CUTE card
Happy New Year card

This is definitely a fabulous start to the new year right?  Love it!
And here is my card inspired by her card.

Friendship is the Sweetest Flower card


And this week, I was Inspired By DJ from Sendable Sentiments

Her cute card caught my eye because I love the theme and the design.  I was inspired to stay with the overall theme and design to create a coffee-themed card for my stash.

Here is her CUTE card
Coffee & Friends card

Isn't it fabulous?  
The Inspired By gallery is always so amazing and jumpstarts so many ideas for all the participants and dt too :)

And here is my card inspired by her card.
You Got This --coffee  card


I used the awesome digital stamps from Graciellie Designs: Cheery Cocoa

 And the gallery is looking inspiring again this week for our current challenge: Inspired By Hot Chocolate, it's going to be so hard because there's just not enough time to create a card for every card that inspires me weekly.  
Thank you for visiting!

Wishing You a Beautiful Holiday

Good afternoon.  I created a Christmas card for the current challenge over @ ABC Christmas Challenge.  

The challenge this month?
Anything Goes Christmas
or 
B is for Bingo 
I chose to create an "Anything Goes" Christmas card using some Christmas sentiment stamps and a candy cane stamp.  I pulled out the acrylic paint to create some red berries on the holly and contrast between the repeated sentiment.
Wishing You a Beautiful Holiday card
 To create the patterned papers, I stamped the holly and merry sentiment using white chalk ink and then added the red berries and polka dots using red acrylic paint.  I die-cut a scalloped circle out of vellum and stamped the sentiment and candy cane.  After machine-stitching the sentiment tag, I adhered the sentiment to the vellum tag and the candy cane to the sentiment, and then Silhouette-cut a bow and added some sequins.
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Beautiful and Bright tag card

Good morning.
I am back with a card inspired by the challenge over at CAS Christmas card challenges.
Beautiful and Bright card


Here is the challenge this month:
 Make a card with a Tag on it
I chose to stamp a tag using a fun Christmas holly stamp and then used a toothpick to paint the berries using acrylic paint.  I stamped the sentiment using a glittered silver ink and then scored some lines into the white cardstock for interest.  I finished the tag with some glittered ribbon I had in my stash and adhered to the white cardstock mat and then to my card base.
