Stinkin Cute Skunk Cards

Hi there.  Today, I colored these cute skunks from Neat and Tangled called Little Stinker.  Oh this skunk is so stinkin cute right? I don’t know why it took me so long to color it.  I first stamped the skunk with Extreme Black ink by MFT.  I colored them in with my copic markers and then I fussy cut them out.  I chose to use the Postage Stitched Dies by Jaded Blossom along with Rectangle Dies 2 and of course the freebie stamp Postcard. I loved using those products together today.  I stamped the sentiment from the Little Stinker stamp set using my Mini Misti.  I also added the skunk scent lines image.  I stamped the “LOVE Postage” stamp using red memento ink onto the small postage stitched die cut.  I used some clear thread and wound it up in my hands to get a messy look to place underneathe my images.  I added the skunks with foam squares along with the red and gray panel.  I added a ribbon bow, Nuvo drops, and gel accents to my panel and skunks.  I also added a heart image from My Favorite Nut by Neat and Tangled for the feet of the skunks for extra cuteness.  I hope you like my cards, thank you for stopping by!

Valentine Matchbook Holders

Hi there.  Today, I’m sharing these adorable Matchbook holders.  I watched a matchbook tutorial on YouTube yesterday to make these Matchbook holders.  I follow a fellow crafter and I believe she is AliZai Crafts on YouTube.  You should follow her and subscribe, she does some beautiful projects. I made some in different sizes and the square stitched panel die cuts came from a die set by Papertrey Ink. I dressed up my matchbooks by using some rosettes that I had made yesterday and diecutting some air balloons, clouds, hearts, and word dies using various cardstock.  I also used a stamped girl image my friend sent me, that one is my favorites.  She is from MFT Stamps. I colored the girl image with my copic markers and fussy cut her out.  I also used my stapler, ribbon, gelly roll pens, and glitter pen for decoration.  I used liquid glue and glue dots to attach my embellishments.  Aren’t these treats cute?  I love them.  I put sequins and chocolates in mine.  I hope you like these matchbooks, I will be making  a ton more.  They are so fun.  Thank you for stopping by!

Showers of Love!

Hi there.  Today, I wanted to share what I have been working on.  I had these dies in my stash, how perfect is that?  I used Lawn Fawn Simple Puffy Cloud Frames, Simple Puffy Clouds, and Make Me Smile Dies.  I die cut a bunch using glittered and colored heavy weight cardstock.  I used SSS Large Tags Dies also SSS Wonky Rectangles dies for my tags and card panel.  I used a sentiment from My Creative Time called Make A Splash and stamped it in the new MFT extreme black ink. I think I really like the new ink pad.  I added some cute cheeks on my clouds using Mini Hearts and glittered cardstock.  I used my paper trimmer to add some layers to my card and tags. I added some ribbon and twine to my tags.  I added my card panel onto a black A2 side folding card base.  I also added a pink wonky rectangle die cut to the inside of the card.  I used some crepe paper and my hot glue gun to make my rosette embellishments.  My cute paper clips, to make them I added lots of layers of heavy weight cardstock and my hot glue gun.  Aren’t those perfect for the planner?  I hope you like my cloud projects.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Puny Cards!

Hi there.  Today, I made some sweet Puny cards that are great for anyday or even Valentine’s Day.  I used this cute stamp set called Cheat Day from Plannerstreet.  Aren’t these images cute? I love them.  I stamped the images in my Misti to get dark inked images and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I fussy cut them out which was pretty easy to do since I enjoy that process.  I die cut some scalloped rectangles with pattern paper and white cardstock using  the MFT Blueprints 27.  The sentiments came from My Creative Time’s Hey There Cute-Tea! and We’re Better Together.  My circle die cut is also from My Creative Time.  I popped the images up with foam squares and glued my panels on a pink heavyweight A2 cardstock.   I added some matching sequins and grounded my images with a gray Copic markers.  Lastly, I added glitter with my glitter pen and added gel accents with a Gelly roll pen.  I hope you like my cards, thanks for stopping by.

You’re The Sweetest!

Hi there.  I made a cute Valentine card today using the cutest Lawn Fawn products.  I recently received the Party Panda Birthday Freebie and I had to make a Valentine shaker card with it.  I first die cut a stitched rectangle out of some pink heavy weight cardstock.  I used a heart die from the Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables and placed it on my rectangle die cut with acetate for my shaker.  I used foam tape and a Valentine sequin mix from Whimsy stamps for my shaker elements.  I stamped the Panda in my Misti to get a good stamped impression.  I colored the images with my Copic markers, I did very little coloring.  I also stamped a heart and bow from Octopi My Heart to make my panda a cute girl.  I placed the heart in the panda’s hands and glued the cute bow on her head.  I used a sentiment and hearts from Sweet Friends and used my Misti to help me stamp them for a good stamped impression.  My Misti helped alot since I added foam tape to the panel.  I added my panel to a pink A2 top folding card base.  Lastly, I added some matching sequins, gel accents, and glitter from my glitter pen.  I hope you like my cute panda card.  Thank you for stopping by!

Dragon Valentine Card!

Hi there.  Today started a new challenge over on the Jaded Blossom Blog, so I wanted to partiscipate.  The Challenge is Hearts.  This may be my first Valentines card for the year.  I just love Valentine’s Day, don’t you?.  Okay onto my card,  I thought it would be cute to use this super cute dragon from Dragon Kisses and some Jaded Blossom Dies.  I stamped and heat embossed the dragon and colored it in with my Copic markers.  I used the Card Mat Dies and the School Dies for my panel.  I really like the note edge from the School Dies.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto a rectangle die cut from the Card Mat Dies.  I know my card doesn’t have many hearts, but I did use the hearts from the Banner Dies in a red glittered cardstock.  I added some clear thread and wrapped it around under the dragon for interest.  I added the dragon with heart onto thread with foam tape.  My sentiment rectangle has foam tape along with the heart.  I added my panel onto a black A2 top folding card base.  I hope you like my card and join in on the challenge.  Thanks for stopping by!

Winter Cheer!

Hi there.  I made some tags today, and I wanted to share them with you.  I used the Winter Critters from La-La Land Crafts.  I think these critters are so cute with their winter outfits on.  I started off stamping my critters on kraft cardstock and I colored them in with my Prismacolor pencils.  I fussy cut them out and I added gel accents with my Gelly roll pens.  I die cut some tags using the Tags Alot dies from Mama Elephant with white cardstock.  I added some snow and trees with my Copic markers.  I drew in a pine tree and some birch trees adding some snow falling.  I also used Salted Ocean Distress Oxide ink for my sky background.  I deceided to stamp the sentiment that came with the same stamp set.  Lastly, I added some twine to tie on the top of my tags.  I hope you like how they came out.  It was nice using a few mediums to color with.

Thanks for stopping by!
