Built On Dreams w/ Marcia

Hello everyone!  I'm sharing a few cards that I made using "Built on Dreams" stencils and die set from PinkFresh Studio.  Marcia and I spent the weekend a couple weeks ago, participating in their Create & Connect event and boy was it ever fun!  Not only was it educational but we added quite a few beautiful new supplies to our craft room "stash".  Our favorite set was the "Built on Dreams" sets, so we decided to create more projects and share them with you, together on our blogs today.  

One of the first things I wanted to try, was to use Christmassy colors to create a Christmas card. Using the stencils, border stamp and die cut, I made this cute house shaped card.  The banner is preprinted and came from a collection of die cut ephemera.  

This next card came out more beautiful than it looks in the photo.  I used a stencil and Glitz Glitter Gel to create the leafy background.  While that was drying, I used soft pastels to do the floral stenciling.  I skipped stamping the house border and simply cut it out using the coordinating house die.  I added a vellum heart underneath the preprinted sentiment that came in our weekend kit from PinkFresh Studio.  The heart and sentiment are popped up using foam so there's added dimension there that you can't see.  Plus the background adds a beautiful shimmer to this card.  This is my favorite.  

This next tag could be used for someone who just bought a new home.  There's not much to explain here but I love the fresh colors.  This stencil set with all its coordinating goodies is absolutely delightful!

So, there you have it!  Three projects using the Built On Dreams sets from PinkFresh Studios. I know Marcia is going to knock our socks off with her creations so click HERE to hop over to her blog and see them for yourself.  

Thanks for stopping by!

These are so adorable, Birgit! I had so much fun playing along those two days and making a lot of cards, which I guess I haven't even posted yet! I had Linda come over for a play date and she watched a couple of videos and made some cards. We haven't had a chance to be together a lot. she moved to a new home mid October, so that has kept her very busy. Still unpacking, but now I think they are setting up Christmas! Hope you had a lovely thanksgiving!
