Guesting again with Inlovearts!

Hello all!  We had a busy weekend moving my daughter from one dorm to another, and various other projects around the house.  The move went well, and it was a long day.  She's happy, and the building and her room are gorgeous, with incredible city views.  See the end of this post for a couple of pics. 😀

The kind folks at Inlovearts craft supply company asked me to be their guest again, and I'm so grateful for the opportunity!  I hope you like the creations I made to share.  At the end of this post is a link list for the supplies I used, as well as a discount code for you to use.  Check their site; they have neat and affordable things to add to your crafty stash. 😉

First up is probably my favorite of this bunch.  I LOVE these stickers.  The pack I chose has this sweet blue bird and pretty roses.  I picked a patterned paper from my stash and at first, I did not plan to put the bird directly over top of it, but I really like how it turned out!  The sheerness of the stickers is so lovely.  I had a little file folder die cut in my stash too, since forever, and found it to be the perfect backdrop for the rose stickers, and a sentiment I stamped on.  When the card was nearly complete, I felt it needed one more tiny element in the top left corner, so I used a bit of the Heart Clover Wave border die (you'll get to see more of it in a bit), and just snipped one blossom off and topped it with a pearl.

I also used tiny snippets of the Stackable Hearts Nesting dies as doilies peeking out from beneath the file folder.  I gently inked the edges, and added pearls (of course).

Up next is a dainty, feminine encouragement card using the Roses Pattern embossing folder.  Sigh!  I love the pattern on it.  Since I wanted to showcase this, I kept other details to a minimum and tried not to cover up too much of it.

Had to add a pearl to the top of the crochet flower.  You know me.  LOL

So this is the Heart Clover Wave die I was mentioning earlier!  Isn't it fancy and lively?  Each clover is made up of little hearts, so it could be used for Valentine cards as well.  Me being of Irish descent, I needed to make a St. Patrick's Day card.  😉  I paired with it another product I chose from the Inlovearts shop, which is the pale green crochet trim.  I do love crochet trim.

And in my world, where pearls reign supreme, I just had to top each clover with them.  But with this being a St. Patrick's Day card, where folks think of the 'pot o' gold', I decided to add little gold sequins too.

The Wave Border die set helps make the cutest scenes.  I used sparkly aqua glitter paper to create the prettiest waves for a bright day on the ocean.  The clouds are actually hearts made with Stackable Hearts Nesting dies, cut to resemble puffy white clouds.  Is it too much of a stretch?  I hope they read as clouds.

The fun thing about using this die set is you can use it on both sides.  For the card below, I die-cut the waves on the back of the glitter paper, and just turned the pieces over to reveal waves going in the opposite direction.  

You can tell from the pic below that I used Glossy Accents to cover the boat; I just love using that stuff. 😁

Beautiful cards all! I especially like the bluebird one. You are a fantastic guest designer, they are lucky to have you.

And your daughter's dorm room is awesome! What a view!

Beautiful cards, Colleen! I love the bird with the DP showing through. My other favorite is the card with the sailboat being tossed about in the waves. Your daughter's dorm room looks amazing. I had to show Rich. Never saw such a nice, new, pretty dorm room. Can you share which college? Just curious. Hugs!
