Love Nest Happiness with Christine Penaflor

Good morning! I hope this day has begun with beautiful weather and an abundance of blessings your way!
I am so excited to be able to share the projects that I created with the new Glitz Design Love Nest collection. When I first saw the papers, stickers, and embellishments from this collection, I nearly fainted! I simply adore this collection, and I hope you'll agree with me after I show you what I created…
For this first card, I used the following products:
  • Glitz Design “Love Nest” Paper:  Sky
  • Glitz Design “Love Nest”  Titles Cardstock Stickers
  • Other: Bazzill cardstock, Prima flower, rhinestones, laces, ribbon
I rarely make tall or long cards so I decided to make a couple that would fit into a regular business sized envelope. I started with a brown cardstock base then I cut a piece of Glitz Design Love Nest Paper in the Sky pattern. I adhered an aqua colored ribbon down the middle of the patterned paper and then stitched along the edges to create a border. I adhered a piece of white lace on top of the aqua ribbon and attached this to the card front.
Next, I adhered a piece of cream lace along the bottom of the patterned paper and adhered the bottom part of the aqua ribbon over the lace. The sentiment sticker from the Love Nest Titles set was adhered on top of the lace and the card was embellished with a flower and rhinestones as shown to complete it.
The card above was created using the following products:
  • Glitz Design “Love Nest” Papers:  Sky, Polka
  • Glitz Design “Love Nest”  Titles Cardstock Stickers, Whatnot card
  • Other: Bazzill cardstock, Nestabilities die, rhinestones, lace, Prima die cut felt, Martha Stewart border punch, Shimmerz paint
This time I chose to make a long horizontal card by starting with a dark red cardstock base. A piece of Glitz Design Love Nest paper in the Polka pattern was stitched along the border. Next, I punched a border from brown cardstock and adhered it to the bottom edge of the patterned paper. I adhered a length of lace on the paper a shown and then adhered this to the card front.
A small  piece of Glitz Design Love Nest Sky paper was stitched along the border, the edges were distressed, and then adhered to the card front. On top of that paper, I adhered a small calendar card from the Love Nest Whatnot card set using foam adhesive for dimension. Next, I layered a piece of die cut felt on top of the calendar card. I die cut a piece of Sky patterned paper, painted it with Shimmerz Tickle Me Turquoise paint, and then adhered the sentiment sticker from the Love Nest Titles set on top of the die cut. Finally the rhinestones were added to the card as the finishing touch.
I hope you enjoyed seeing a bit of the Love Nest collection in these projects! May you be inspired to created with this lovely collection some time soon!
