You Are So Spectacular

Hi there crafty friends!
How is your Wednesday going so far? I hope wonderfully!

Today I would like to share a card that I made using some of those awesome
Pink & Main stamps and dies.

My daughter loves anything, especially critters, with glasses on so I thought it would be fun to make her a card with this sweet little owl from the Owl Nerds stamp set. I stamped the owl onto some white cardstock and colored her in with my Copic markers. I used the coordinating Owl Nerds dies, cut her out and added glossy accents to her lenses. I sat her to the side to let her dry and then worked on the rest of the card. I used the largest die in the Stitched Rounded Rectangles set to cut out my polka dot paper and the Stitched Circle Dies for my blue and white circles. I popped up the white circle with some foam tape. For my greeting, I masked off part of the stamp from the Wild About You stamp set to get the "you are so". The "spectacular" came from the Owl Nerds stamp set. I also popped up my greeting with foam tape. Once my Owl was dry, I glued her to the white circle and added a little green bow to finish off my card.

Shopping Our Stash #286

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week challenge #286 is....
Fantastic Beasts!
(Unicorns, Dragons, Monsters, Etc.)

Here is what I created:



My crafty bestie's hubby is having a birthday soon so I decided to make a card to send to him. He likes dragons so this challenge was the perfect time to get one made. 😀 I stamped the dragon and fire and colored them in with my Copics. I fussy cut them out and put them off to the side for a bit while I worked on the rest of the card. I took some distress inks and did a little bit of ink blending for my sky. I used a cloud border die to create the clouds at the bottom. I adhered the sky and clouds to my card base. I popped up the fire with some foam tape and attached the dragon to my card with an action wobble so that he "flies" a little.

Neglected items from my stash that I used are:

  • Distress Inks. I hardly ever use them.
  • Puffy Cloud Border Dies
  • Action Wobbles

I've Taken A Viking To You

Hi crafty friends!
I hope your Monday is marvelous so far!
Today I would like to share a card that I created for the January card sketch over at

Here is a look at their sketch:


Here is the card that I created based on their sketch:


I've had this little Viking stamp for awhile now and was so happy to finally ink it up for this card! I colored him in with my Copics and tried to match him up to the patterned papers that I picked out the best I could. After my card was assembled, I decided it needed a fun little bow so I wrapped some crochet thread around the top and tied a bow, leaving the tails extra long. I think it turned out to be a really cute Valentine :) 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and take a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
❤ I hope you have a great crafty day! ❤

Christmas Card Challenges Week 4

Hello crafty friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday :) 

Today marks the beginning of another challenge at 

The challenge is:


When I saw this photo I was inspired by the gifts wrapped so neat and pretty.
Here is the card that I created with that in mind:


I love this little Elf! I stamped him up and then did a little masking so that the gifts could be situated slightly behind him. I colored in everything with my copics and paper pieced the silver presents with the glitter paper. I sat it aside and then started building my card. One of my goals this year is to actually use/do some of the items that I pin on pinterest so I went to my card sketches folder and picked a sketch to use. The sketch I picked is an older one from My Favorite Things
I built all my layers according to the sketch and then added my colored image panel to the front of the card. For the three silver dots, I simply used a standard hole punch (for school notebook paper) and punched them out of the same glitter paper. I thought that was a neat way to add a little more shimmer. Can't have too much shimmer when it comes to Christmas cards right? lol!

Be sure to head over to the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see the amazing cards my design team sisters created. I hope you are inspired and decide to join us and play along with the challenge. I would love to see what you create :)

If You Give A Crafter A Cookie #60

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Thursday!!
Today starts the beginning of a new challenge over at
Woot Woot!!


There are two sponsors for this challenge and they are:
and

Here is the photo inspiration for challenge #60:


Adorable cookies right??

Here is the card I created based on the above photo:



I started with a gray cardbase and added some pink graph patterned paper. I printed out my Little Penguin Winter image from Bugaboo Stamps onto some Copic friendly cardstock and colored her up with the cookie colors as my inspiration for her beanie hat. For the snow, I added some liquid applique to the flakes and the ground and then used my heat tool to fluff it up. I love doing that for winter cards lol! I matted my image onto some gray cardstock and popped it up with some foam tape onto the card front. I added some fun little snowflake confetti to the card and added a little bling to the center of each one. I finished it off by adding some glossy accents to the penguin's nose and eyes.
