Reneabouquets Beauty of Autumn

Fall has certainly arrived and I love it. It is my favorite season- the colors and the cooler temps!  Creating Fall cards is also a favorite theme to work with.  Today I am sharing a Beauty of Autumn card that I created using Beautiful Board and other items from shop.
For this card, I layered my most favorite digital papers "Fall Foliage" from Raspberry Road Designs onto cardstock. The sentiment, from Create with TLC, was printed on top of the digital paper.
Next I embellished the gorgeous Beautiful Board Heart Frame with distress inks in Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge.  I embossed Quilling Leaves Flourishes Beautiful Board with Blue Fern Studios Embossing powders and attached them on top.
After assembling and attaching all the leaf and flower clusters on top of the Beautiful Board Quilling Leaves and Flourishes, I added Rose Gold Beautiful Beads, Gold Christmas Glass Glitter, and Microbeads.  All items used are linked below.   As always, thanks for visiting! Have a great day. links to items used on card:

My Salty Mermaid was distressed, painted and embellished with the same paints and glitter.

If I Had a Star...

     Good Morning 
     Stopping by to share my latest design team make for  

For my card, I framed a stamped sentiment (Quietfire Designs) onto design paper and used Printed Beautiful Board Large Patina-Lilac Heart Frame to showcase it. There are several sizes and colors from which to choose and they are so exquisitely designed printed wood die cuts.

 Inside the heart frame I added iridescent pearls Beautiful Beads in Iridescent Citrus Breeze.  Each jar of beads contains several different sizes and the colors are varied in turquoise and peach. 

To add an additional embellishment to the card, I added one of many stunning Tiny Treasure Dragonflies. These come to use with crystal and glitter beautifully detailed on the wings and body. There are so many butterflies and dragonflies from which to choose in her shop- these dragonflies are not clip art images, they are originally designed, drawn and colored from scratch by Renea Harrison and each is unique in design.  Last, but not least, I sprinkled Reneabouquet Gold Glitter Glass around the beads in several place. Why not stop by online store and take a peek at all the one of a kind products there.

Thank you, as always, for stopping by and for your kind comments. Have a great day!

Mermaid Kisses & Starfish Wishes

Happy Monday and July 1st!  Stopping by to share my latest make for  I created a second version Mermaid Card using products (list and links below) for my card. 

 Isn't she beautiful?  Renea's Printed Beautiful Board is custom made by her and her husband and it is truly THE best chipboard I have ever worked with- it is thick and sturdy and as you can see, you can use gesso, distress inks, glitter and paint and it will not warp or break. The PRINTED Beautiful Board like the mermaid above, comes with an image printed on top and is as thick and sturdy as the unfinished chipboard. Here is a close up of the exquisitely detailed chipboard and printed chipboard pieces exclusive to
I embellished the large Heart Deco Circle Chipboard with distress inks, glitter and gesso.  I added Beautiful Bead Iridescent Pearls in the bead holes around the circle. On top, I foam-taped (to add dimension) the Printed Beautiful Board Mermaid. I cut apart the Elegant Accent leaf flourish and distress with sponge (Mermaid Lagoon, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks) and then adhered to card on the right side of the deco circle and above left top part of the card. I also sponged distress inks on cheesecloth and applied under the chipboard to which I added sequins, more pearls and glitter. The beautiful design papers are digital papers I print on a color printer from Raspberry Road Designs, "Ocean Breeze".  Here are some of the items I used from Renea's online store- detailed list with links below collage.

Be Yourself - Mermaid Fantasy for Reneabouquets

     Summer is here and there is an ocean breeze in the air! At least that is what I hope viewing this card inspires in you.  Stopping by to share my latest make for  Renea is filling the shop with all things ocean-filled!  Beautiful Board, Printed Beautiful Board, Pearls, Mermaids, lace, glitter...if it is in the ocean, she has it and it is oh-so-much-fun to create with all of it!
     For my card, I began with a 6" square base and digital design papers (Raspberry Road) that I knew would so compliment Renea's products. I covered the smallest of the Shell Chipboard Tags set with design papers and distressed all in Salty Ocean, Vintage Photo distress inks.  Next I added cheesecloth and glued the most exquisite Beautiful Beads in "Mermaid Tail". I also added some Glass Glitter in Patina. I stamped a sentiment from Stampelglede using a mix of black and Salty Ocean Distress ink. 

     On top of the tag, I distressed and attached the Beautiful Board Shell Border  and added another Beautiful Bead.  Last I propped my Printed Beautiful Board Mermaid using Renea's Beautiful Board Laser Cut Circles which are great for adding dimension! As always, the best part for me is adding the gorgeous mulberry paper flowers. All of these beauties are available in Renea's shop. Here is a peek of the products used to make this card.

Reneabouquets Wedding Shadow Box

Stopping by to share my latest make for As you know Renea has both an online shop and an Reneabouquet ETSY shop from which to purchase some of the most unique items.
For my creation, I made a beautiful wedding shadowbox featuring a beautiful gown and lots of Reneabouquet items
I made the gown out of satin and lace and added pearls and sequins. The base is an airdry clay mold of a Barbie torso. I only use the front of the torso so the piece lies flat.  I used Lemon Craft design papers and embellished with Reneabouquets Victorian Mirror that I embossing with Lindy's Pale Pink EP and glitter. I inked the mirror backing with Vintage Photo distress ink to give it a vintage feel.
On a scrap piece of matching dp, I inked up a stamp from Quietfire Designs and inked with distress inks. On top of the mirror, I used one of Reneabouquets gorgeous beautiful board cherubs. Above, I added her Beautiful board doves. I placed both the mirror and gown on Renea's ivory lace embellished with pearl string.  Last, I added some pink roses on top of Renea's qulling flourishes that were covered with glitter. 
It is so hard to photograph a creation behind glass because of the glare but here is the finished shadowbox. It is quite deep allowing for a full gown and any other embellishments/keepsakes the couple want to add.
Please visit and take a peek at all the lovely items. You will be so inspired. Have a great day and thank you for your kind comments. This shadowbox is available for immediate purchase in my ETSY shop.
