Coffee First!

Hello.  Today, I made a fun super cute card using this adorable stamp set by Jamie at Not2Shabby shop.  This is her first stamp and I love it so much!  It’s called Let’s Do Coffee and you can find it in her shop.  I stamped all the images in MFT Extreme Black ink.  All the images stamped beautifully the first time, I am so impressed.  I colored the images in with my copic markers and fussy cut them all out.  I used a fun embossing folder by Taylored expressions and fun pattern paper by Simple Stories.  After creating my scene, I popped up some images with foam squares and added glittered stickles.  I glued my panel with my ATG gun onto a pink A2 top folding card base.  I also stamped a sentiment from the stamp set.  I hope you like my card as much as I do!  Thank you for stopping by!

Magical Dreams Come True!

Hi there.  Today, I made this fun cute card using Pegasus  Kisses and Rectangle Dies 2 from Jaded Blossom.  I am entering this card in the Jaded Blossom April Monthly Color Sketch Challenge.  I started out stamping the Pegasus and colored it in with my copic markers.  I used some fun new paper that was perfect for the color sketch.  I used the largest stitched rectangle to make my panel accordingly.  I fussy cut the pegasus and popped it up with foam squares.  I used my Misti to help me stamp the sentiment with a nice crisp dark impression.  I used other pattern papers and cut them to fit my panel.  I glued my panel onto a A2 top folding white card base.  Lastly, I added Stardust stickles on the wings of the Pegasus, glitter with my Spectrum Noir Pen, and Pretty Pink Posh sequins.  I really like how this card turned out, I hope you do too! I also hope you join the monthly challenges, they are so much fun.

Thank you!

Your Friendship Brightens My Day!

Hello there.  Today I made a card today, and it was fun and easy using this fun kit from My Creative Time called Happy Rainy Day Kit.  Although it’s not raining today, I still think it will brighten someone’s day.  Don’t you think so?  I first die cut a stitched rectangle from the Scalloped Stitched Rectangle Dies also from My Creative Time and used the stencil from the kit.  I used various favorite distress oxide yummy colors to color my rain drops.  I added some sprinkles of water and dried the excess with a paper towel.  I then die cut the girl with the umbrella in yellow glittered cardstock and yellow foam to pop her up.  I then used a sentiment from the kit using my mini misti for a crisp impression.  I die cut a scalloped rectangle in a pattern paper from Lawn Fawn’s rainbow paper pad and glued my panel onto a A2 top folding card base.  I then added some clear sequins.  That finishes my card for today, I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by!

A Foxy Thank You Card

Hello, today I’m sharing a cute thank you card using a adorable stamp set my friend gifted me.  It’s called Feelin’ Foxy by Honey Bee Stamps.  I love it and could not wait to play with it.  I first stamped it on Neenah Desert Storm kraft paper and colored with my Prismacolor pencils.  I even doodled some flowers and grass.  I used a stitched circle die from LDRS and a sentiment from the collaboration of Honey Bee and Simon Says Stamp called Remarkable You.  I added some tiny butterfly die cuts in gold glitter and popped up my sentiment with foam tape.  I glued my panel onto a A2 side folding card base.  I hope you like my card, thank you for stopping by!

You blow My Mind!

Hello there.  Today, I created this fun card for the Create A Smile Challenge-Emboss Resist.  How fun is this challenge and this fun stamp set I used called You blow my mind.  I first started off die cutting a stitched square from Bristol smooth cardstock and embossing the images with white embossing powder.  I used my Tambi Kuretake watercolors and had fun painting.  When I was done painting I stamped the sentiment with black versafine ink and clear embossing powder using my heat tool for a embossed sentiment.  I die cut a scalloped square from some pattern paper and popped up my pattern paper with foam tape onto another scalloped card base.  I glued my painted embossed resistant panel onto the pattern scalloped card base.  I added some treats enamel stickers and added white dots onto my ground for interest.  I hope you like my card for today.  Thank you for taking a peek.

Happy Thoughts

Hi there.  Today I made this Spring themed card.  I used some Stamping Bella Stamps and LDRS Fancy Rectangles & Layers Creative dies.  I first stamped the Garden Backdrop with MFT Extreme Black ink using my Mini Misti for some good coverage.  I then die cut it using the Fancy Rectangles for a fun shape.  I then copic colored and stamped a sentiment from a Waffle Flower set called Across The Miles.  I then stamped a cute image from the Mini frenchie set and colored with my copics before fussy cutting it out.  I used foam tape for my fancy rectangles and my frenchie image.  I layered it onto a Lawn Fawn Stirched rectangle in lavender cardstock.  I glued my panel onto a side folding A2 card base.  Lastly,  I added some drops that look like little diamonds and some glitter with my Spectrum Noit pen.  I hope you like my Spring card, thank you for stopping by!

Hey, Birthday Girl!

Hello there.  Today, I made this cute card based on the last sketch challenge for MFT.  I used this super cute Pure Innocense stamp set called Birthday Girl.  I stamped her with MFT Extreme Black ink and colored her with copic markers.  I also paper pieced her dress and one of the shopping bags with pattern paper from my stash.  I fussy cut her out and glittered her up with my Spectrum Noir Clear glitter pen.  I die cut a stitched square with pattern paper  from the same paper pad.  I die cut a banner die from MFT using a sentiment from the same stamp set.  I even used the other sentiment for the inside of the card.  I used a stitched rectangle from Lil Inker Designs and glued my panel onto a A2 top folding card base.  Lastly, I added some enamel dots to match.  I hope you like my card, Thanks for stopping by!
