Hey There, Beautiful

 Hello Crafters!

Two posts in one day . . .bizarre I know. 

However, today at my crafty get together I made two cards, TWO!! I'm moving up from the one I accomplished last time :) I truly enjoy these little get togethers so much! Such fabulous girls <3 

The wonderful Kirsty brought her copics. She has EVERY SINGLE COPIC!! I was drooling over them. Since I'm getting ready to place a copic order I wanted to try out all the colors I don't have. Needless to say I'm going to be broke. 

I wanted to use the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch. I was so blessed to win last week with this card.  I'm such a lucky girl!! I love this week's sketch just as much!!

I tried to play along with Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge last night and nothing was coming together. It was quite ugly. One of those I'll add this . . and this . . and that and nothing makes it better lol.  

Today though. Today was different. I was armed with copics and crafty friends . . an all their supplies :)

Kelly Latevola You and Your Big Dreams

I've seen these die cut sentiments that are popped up everywhere. I so completely love them!!

I masked the stripes an colored with several colors of copics. Nothing special just some feathering. I was going to use my Kudos stamps from Paper Smooches when amazing Lindsay said she had the matching dies. What? I could pop my sentiment?! Whoo Hoo! I cut about 5 of the beautiful and layered them with the rainbow one on top. I have to frame everything so I did a double line with my black pen and a ruler before I replaced the die cut. 

The rest of the seniment is from Paper Smooches sentiment sampler. I cut it part so I could stack it. I added some enamel dots to balance it thanks to Katie. She is my sentiment guru.  I really wanted to add glitter to the beautiful but Lindsay insisted I use Wink of Stella. I know this is going to shock you since they are everywhere but I had never used it before. It outs the most subtle shimmer down. So pretty! 

That's it! Rainbow, mostly one layer and done :)

Thanks for visiting!!



  1. What a cool, rainbow-y card! You made two cards while crafting with friends? Wow! I usually make about half a card if anyone else is near me, because I can't stop talking long enough to craft, lol! (I'm drooling over Kirsty's Copic collection... one day... )

  2. I love this card, but I love it even more in person!! So fab, Kelly!

  3. Awww, queen of rainbows is back again! Love the way you added the sentiment!


  5. Awesome card, Kelly! I really love how you created the rainbow with all those pretty colors, and your die cut sentiment is fabulous! Such a fun card!
    So glad you had such a great time with your crafty friends, and that you got to play with so many Copic! If you're looking for a good price on Copics, go to and create an account (it's free). Once you sign in, Copic markers are $ price I've seen anywhere, hands down!
