We Are 3 and Look Up Digital Papers

For my layout today, I resized paper from We Are 3's Look Up collection - nice large hot-air balloons. 
The title from Elegant Word Art was a must for this photo of my mother-in-law.  I added some ribbon and felt buttons, and a tag with the date.  Fast and easy!  To view the rest of the papers that come in this collection, click HERE.  Also be sure to visit We Are 3's Facebook Page to see fabulous new papers and designs.

Power Poppy Thank You Challenge? or Mass Produce Challenge?

This week at Power Poppy, Julie chose mass producing for the Creative Confetti Challenge. I'll admit - I missed the note they should be Thank You cards. I needed to make a gift pack of cards today - so mass producing fit in so well with my plans. Thank You cards wouldn't have worked anyways - oh well. I colored a butterfly I've been wanting to try. I did this as part of the Butterfly class from Kit and Clowder - so that did take a little away from mass producing. With my butterflies colored and fussy cut - I moved on the papers.
I chose my papers (Outer Space from We Are 3), cut the layers I needed, printed sentiments and an embellishment...then moved on to assembling.

We Are 3's Written Word/Paper Ala Mode Challenge

This week at Paper Ala Mode, we're distressed! As I made this card, we were experiencing the Southwest Blizzard of '19 - so I am distressed! By the time this is posted, however, I expect to be enjoying sunny days in the 80s. My background paper for my "distressed" card is from this month's We Are 3 Written Word - adorned with a sentiment from the new Fabulous sentiment collection.
The image is from our sponsor Oddball Art - I used Big Eye Bookwork Astrid the Fairy.  I did some popping with dimensionals to frame Astrid.  Be sure to stop by The Outlawz to see all the fabulous distressed designs - and come and play along.

The Written Word is Fabulous

This month at The Outlawz Crash Your Stash Challenge, We Are 3 is sponsoring the Mulberry Paper challenge. We Are 3 is introducing the Written Word digital papers, which will be given as a prize for the winner of the Crash Your Stash Challenge. So dig into your stash and find that mulberry paper! I did finally use up all mine - so no mulberry paper on my card. Instead I made a western-themed card for our local SALSA swap.
I colored the Western horseshoe from Love SVG (that file includes other western images).  I added my own little touch by using some vintage silver embossing on the horseshoe and glitter on the feathers, as well as twine for the rope.  I really think it turned out cute, but I should have made two copies and added more dimension with pop-ups.  For more inspiration, stop by the We Are 3 Facebook page and check out amazing cards made by other members of the Design Team - and we'd love to see your mulberry paper projects at the Outlawz.

Wish You Luck and some Fabulous Creative Confetti

This week at Power Poppy, they have another amazing Creative Confetti Challenge. This is one of those cards that just does NOT look like the vision I had in my head....Took me a long time today to settle for this. It is what it is. LOL! The gingham paper is from We Are 3's Just For You collection, and I used Power Poppy's Wish You Luck collection. The glittered flourish is from Love SVG's Decorative Elements.
I printed an extra image and individually cut some flowers and clover to add on top to give it some dimensions.  Then I popped the sentiment and image for dimension, added some ribbon and little pearls.  Be sure to stop by Power Poppy to see awesome creations by others, AND they have a great prize which you can't win unless you play along.

Think Spring Card

Wow, was this easy! I rummage through my stash and found yet another piece of Vintage Bird. The water fountain was already colored and in my stash. I digitally paper-pieced the new Think Spring sentiment with some Rainbow Gingham. I added some pearls. Ta Da!

Back to School

I don't know about you, but I LOVE Back-to-School pics and, for me, there's never too many school pics to scrap. That's why it seems I added every school image available on this layout. Ooooh! So much fun!
First I printed out the title on the background paper.  I cut the banners from Independence Banners (Miss Kate Cuttables).  The various embellishments come from Miss Kate Cuttables, Scrappy Dew, Love SVG, Little Scraps of Heaven

We Are 3 Little Star Layout

Splitcoast Stampers Featured Stamper

It's Sunday - All my friends are springing forward. I can't believe it's spring - we are in serious need of some warmth here! Sunday means it's time for another Featured Stamper! This week the Featured Stamper is Sunny Qi - Sunny Loves Paper! This card of Sunny's caught my eye. This is one of my favorite techniques to emulate using digital paper. It takes little time to combine two patterned papers to get a collage effect. I'm so happy with how it came out. Thank you, Dear Sunny, for the inspiration.
I did consider cheating on the "FRIEND" and using digital gold foil for that, too; But I decided to pull out my favorite embossing powder and give it a real metallic effect.  All the patterned papers came from the brand new Periwinkle Minty collection (We Are 3) - just released yesterday!

Sending You Gift Pack Dreams

Today I managed to make a set of note cards for a gift pack when we travel. I used a little embossing, some papers from my stash, and sentiments from We Are 3.



These cards were really simple - which is about all I can handle these days with my hubby still recuperating from a bone infection.  But I think they turned out nicely just the same.

We Are 3 Holiday Birthdays

This month at We Are 3, Bonnie added Holiday Birthday sentiments to the shop.

I thought these fall leaves would make a lovely birthday card for someone having to share their birthday with Halloween.  The patterned papers for the bottom matting and top panel are from We Are 3 - Houndstooth Jewel Tones and At the Beach.  Of course, there are multiple layers and pop-up for dimension.

We are 3 - Good Luck

This month brings us one of my favorite holidays - St. Patrick's Day. I finally actually designed something that is a little more than quick and simple. I challenged myself to create a cutting file for a step card. Here's my finished card.
I really love the idea of being able to make a quick step card. The cute horseshoe is a We Are 3 pre-colored image - Good Luck. I used the Love SVG Happy St. Patrick's Day for my sentiment, and framed it with Arrows - Circles from Design Bundles. I added some shamrocks from my stash and jewels and sticker borders for a little bling. The green patterned paper is from We Are 3's Vintage Bird Collection. LOVE IT! Please stop by We Are 3's Facebook Page to view all the fabulous cards from the Design Team.
