Terrific Tuesday Challenge---Spring

Happy Tuesday!

Are you all ready for a new Terrific Tuesday Challenge over at the Scrappy Moms blog?

Photobucket

The theme for this Terrific Tuesday Challenge is:
Spring Is In The Air

Here is the card that I created:


I thought this sentiment from the new set by Scrappy Moms titled Walking On Sunshine was perfect paired up with this sweet little chicken from My Scrap Chick. I also thought bright and fun floral papers would be awesome for a springy card. I didn't add alot of bulk, I am all about easy mailing these days haha!

Here is a look at the entire Walking On Sunshine set:

BBTB2 -- Outlook:Partly Cloudy

It's Monday which means it is time for another great challenge over at the

This theme for this week is:
Partly Cloudy, use a sun and a cloud on your project.

I had a lot of fun with this one and ended up using three different cartridges!
Here is a look at my card:


I decided to make a tall and skinny card, (this one measures 3.5" x 8" folded) to take advantage of getting the most out of that super cute title from the The First Few Years Cricut cartridge. My clouds came from the Bits & Pieces cartridge and that cool little sun is from the Simply Charmed cartridge. I added a bit of faux stitching with my white gel pen around the perimeter of the card and embossed one of the clouds with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I finished off my card by adding some Totally White Trendy Twine around the top off the card and tying it off into a bow. This will fit into a business size envelope and it isn't too bulky so it will make mailing pretty easy :) 

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

Oh Snap!

Happy Sunday!
Today I am here to show you a super simple card that I created that features 
some of that awesome washi from Love My Tapes.


For my card, I decided to go pretty simple so that it would be easy to mail.  I used the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies from MCT to add those cute stitched layers. I also used the Camera Bottom Layer and the Stitched Camera Die also from MCT. I added a few pieces of bling to accent my camera and popped it up with some Foam Adhesive for just a tiny bit of dimension. After I added my camera and greeting, I stamped that super cute greeting from the Amusing Animals set from Scrappy Moms. I added a bit of Washi to the top of my white card layer for a little bit of added interest. 

I couldn't stop with just decorating the front of the card, I decided to decorate the inside as well. Washi tape is the perfect embellishment, it adds color, fun patterns and no bulk to your projects.
Here is a look at the inside of the card:


I thought this would be perfect for a belated birthday or even a I'm Sorry type of card. 
I will stamp a greeting on the inside when I know what I will be using it for. 

Here is a close look at the tapes that I used:

Scrappy Moms Stamps April Release!!

Happy Friday!!

Today Scrappy Moms Stamps is releasing two new fabulous stamp sets!!
I love them both!!


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


Yup! I am so ready for summer!! Spring has been hit or miss around my area. One day it feels like Spring, the next Fall/Winter haha! I have had this little girl for awhile now and jumped at the chance to finally use her for this card. After I cut her out and assembled her, I created a little beach scene by using some distress ink to stencil my clouds and a couple of dies for the waves and sand. I then added the little girl to the front. I heat embossed my greeting from the Walking On Sunshine set with some white embossing powder. I finished it off with a few sequins and of course, a bow! I then popped up that front panel to my card base using some foam adhesive for a little more dimension. 

Here is a complete look at both of the sets that are being released today:

I love both of these and have a feeling I will be using them quite often haha!

BBTB2 -- April Showers!

Happy Monday!

So sorry that I have been away, I had a sick family member and it was a little crazy around here for awhile. I am happy to report that everyone is on the mend and I am back to crafting!

Are you guys ready for another fun challenge that starts today over at

This week we are challenging you to bring on the rain, or anything that deals with rain. :) 

Here is the card that I created for the challenge:


I found that cute little bird on the 3 Birds On Parade Cricut cartridge. Isn't she darling? I use the hide contour feature on her face so that I could use a Peachy Keen face on her. I added a cute little twine bow to her and also added some glossy accents to her rain boots as well as the rain drops. 

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