Sympathy Card

Happy Friday!

Tonight I have a card to share with you that I made for the challenge over at


Sympathy cards are so hard to make. I have none in my stash so even though this was a tough challenge, at least I now have one just in case. As pretty as this card is, I really hope it just kinda collects dust and never has to be used. To create my card, I cut out my flower from the Spring Cottage Cricut cartridge and placed it inside a frame that I cut out from the Elegant Edges cartridge. My flower was cut out in all white and then I just inked the leaves and stem with green ink, making it lighter and darker in certain areas to give a bit more dimension. I also added a bit of sparkle to my flower by added some shine from my Wink Of Stella Clear glitter brush pen. On my pink layer, I heat embossed the sentiment as well as the edges with silver embossing powder. 

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

I hope you have a great crafty day!

Valentine Goody Bags

Happy Wednesday!

I hope you all had a fabulous day!
Tonight I have a couple of little goody bags to show you that uses those adorable little monsters from the Valentine Monsters set from KaDoodle bug Designs.


For my bags toppers, I used the top note die from Stampin' Up and cut out my patterned paper and then simply folded them in half. I attached some ribbon and tied a simple knot. Then I cut out those cute little monsters and popped them up using some foam adhesive. Simple simple to put together and would be great for mass producing :) 

I am entering my goody bags into the challenge that is going on over at

Scrappy Moms January Release: Project 3

Happy Tuesday!

Today I have another card to show you that features one of the new sets from 


For my card, I used my Cricut and cut out the card base as well as the banner with the bird out of the Birthday Bash cartridge. I added a cute little face from Peachy Keen to my little birdie :) My background layer is actually a white piece of cardstock that I embossed with a cloud embossing folder and then inked over the entire thing with some Bermuda Bay ink. I stamped my greeting from the For The Birds set from Scrappy Moms onto a stitched oval and popped it up with some foam adhesive. 

Here is a look at the For The Birds stamp set:

Happy Sunday!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far.

Today I have another card to show you that features one of the new sets from 


For my card, I used those cute little birds from the Sweethearts cricut cartridge and layered them on top of some layers that I cut out from the Elegant Edges cricut cartridge. I picked a greeting from the new stamp set titled, For The Birds from Scrappy Moms Stamps. I thought it paired perfectly with that sweet little image.

Scrappy Moms January Release!!!

Happy Friday!!

Today is a pretty exciting day!
 Today I get to show you 2 new super cute stamp sets from Scrappy Moms Stamps!! 
Woot Woot!!

Here is the first card that I created for this release using the stamp set called


I cut out my Strawberry Margarita from a file that I found in the Silhouette online store. I added some vellum to the front of my glass to soften it up a little and then added some chunky glitter to represent the salt on the rim and glossy accents to my strawberry. I added that super fun sentiment from the You Are My Everything 2 using some Jet Black Archival ink. 

Here is a look at both of the sets that are releasing today:



Aren't they fun?
