The sunshine blend is a bright, cheerful blend of lemony yellows, chartreuse, white and transparent, iridescent butter shades—you’ll want to use this blend on all of your happiest projects.

Frostyville...

Apr 9, 2019 No comments
Good morning DRU fans, today I am excited to show you my  project that is all about layers and simplicity. I wanted to make a sort of frame that mimics frost and the last days of winter.
This card is what I call a frame card. Winter inspired, I wanted to egg on Spring a little bit! I roughed up the edges to give the idea of ice and winter in feel. I am SO ready for Spring.


Here is how I created this fun card.



1. Choose your die, stamp and colors and paper. I used the stamp Scooter Tilda and the die Frostyville Border.












 2. Cut out several borders in the chosen colors with the cutting device of choice. 



3. Take your paper and cut out 2 wavy backgrounds to look like hills and paste them onto card base layer.




 4. This is what that should roughly look like. Be creative!











 5. Color in your stamp with your choice of markers ect.

6. Take your die cuts and make a border around the image. It's fine if you have to trim and tweak a bit to make it work.

7. For added texture and to give an "ice" feel to the care, I roughed up the edges so the blue would show up better.







Here are the supplies I used

Flower Card...

Apr 2, 2019 No comments
Good morning DRU fans, today is my first day as a design member and I am excited to show you my first project that is all about layers.

Here is my make,




Here is how I created this fun card.


1. Choose your dies, colors and paper. I used the die Honeyblossom Sprig.

 2. Cut out several sprigs in the chosen colors with the cutting device of choice. I used green and wanted the flowers yellow.
 3. Take your flower color, cut out the heads and paste them onto the green back layer. Use any glue.
 4. When you are done your assembled flowers should look like this...
 5. For added visual interest, I added some pale colors to the flowers then used white and black ink to draw a line and dot pattern on said flowers.
6. To personalize, use a sentiment stamp and adhere.






















Here are the supplies I used


Memory Box: Honeyblossom Sprig

Uni-Ball Pen Signo Gel - White UM-153

Girl Power....

Mar 27, 2019 No comments
Hi crafty peeps! It's my turn to share a little girl power card featuring a fun Sparkle Blend from the awesome Sparkle Blend company Doodles Paper Playground!
So I am a girl that likes sparkle, flowers and a strong sense of self so I couldn't help but make this card all about the sense of "Girl Power". Ladies can be the Queen of a castle, a knight that saves the day or a maiden who is assertive. 

The Sparkle Blend I used is called Flower Power and it's full of fun items!  If you are a floral fanatic, this blend is perfect! We skipped the usual cupped sequins in favor of nothing but flowers in this bright, happy blend! Use them mixed as filler for shaker cards, or pick out just a few to embellish your spring and summer projects. Flower styles range from simple daisies to Fimo slices and holographic blooms.
