A Simple Butterfly Hello

Happy Wednesday!


Today I am back with another project that showcases some awesome stamps and dies from 


For my card, I trimmed some floral paper to cover the front of my card base. I used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles to cut out my light pink and white cardstock. I stamped some of the butterflies from the Inspire stamp set along the side of my white cardstock piece, trimmed it and attached a yellow scallop that I cut out using one of the borders from the Scallop Borders die set. I added the Hello from the Hello Dies, added some wink of stella and a few sequins to finish off the card.

Shopping Our Stash #261: You Are Matchless

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

This week, challenge #261 is....
You Are Matchless
(Create your own matchbook/matchbox)

Here is the project that I created for this challenge:


I decided to make a little matchbook that holds a piece of chocolate. I used some patterned paper that has been in my stash for over a year. The best part is, I was able to use up some of the scraps in the paper pad. I used staples to close the bottom flap of my matchbook, they are just covered up with the crochet thread. I used a word die from Pink & Main and finished off the front with some enamel dots as well as some bling. I have had the bling for a really long time, at least 2 years! 

Here is a pic of the matchbook from the top:



and a picture of it opened up:

Camp Create Day 5

Hi everyone! 
I'm back with a quick post to share the card that I created for 
Day 5 of the MFT Camp Create
I had such a great time! I can't believe Camp is done :( 


Day 5 was Background Bonanza! We used smaller stamps to create our own background/patterned paper. 


I adore these piggies in the Hog Heaven stamp set and I thought the little flowers in the set would make a perfect background. I stamped all the flowers onto my card base and then colored them in with my Copics. For the small black dots, I simply inked up the end of one of my stylus tools. I colored my images and then used the Hog Heaven dies to cut them out so that I could layer them onto one of the Zig Zag Stitched Circle Stax. I finished off my card with a little bit of faux stitching and some glossy accents to the bow and the flower centers. 


I really did have so much fun participating in Camp Create and am looking forward to another camp session next month :) 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!

Camp Create Day 4

Hi everyone! 
I'm back with a quick post to share the card that I created for 
Day 4 of the MFT Camp Create.


Day 4 was all about Masking. I decided to do some simple masking with some washi to create some stripes. 


I placed some washi along a piece of Tim Holtz cardstock and used some Candied Apple Distress ink to create my red stripes. After the washi was pulled away, I used a ruler to draw some thin lines. I stamped my little Sailor girl, colored her in with my Copics, matted her onto some Nightshift Blue cardstock from MFT and popped her up onto my card front with some foam tape. Super simple but I really like the simplicity of the end result. 


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!

You Color My World

Hi everyone! 
I'm back tonight with a quick post to share the card that I created for 
Day 3 of the MFT Camp Create.


Day 3 was all about Inlaid Die Cuts! Such a great technique and I love that it doesn't add extra bulk which makes it so easy to mail! Here is the card I created:


I used the Rainbows of Happiness stamp set as well as the Rainbow and Puffy Clouds dies from MFT to create my card. I love how this turned out with all the glitter and sparkle. I added a few sequins for a little dimension. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a peek at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!
