Under Your Spell

Happy Wednesday!


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


Yup! I used those fabulous Scallop Hexagons to make another shaped card! lol! I can't seem to get enough of these cute hexagons!! After I had my card base created, I used the Nested Hexagons to cut out my purple sky from some patterned paper and again from some green cardstock. Then I took one of the Scallop Wave Dies to create a hill from the green cardstock. I layered them together and adhered them to my card base. I used the Witch Brew stamp set for my greeting and images.  I love the Witch Brew Stamp set. It's one of my favorite Halloween sets of all time and I didn't think it could get any better but it did!! Now there are coordinating Witch Brew dies to cut out all of those great images in the set!!! Love love love!!! I popped up my bats with some foam tape and added a bit og glossy accents to the band on the hat to finish off my card.

Tis the season....

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

This week challenge #267 is....
(try out a technique that is new to you)

Here is the project that I created for this challenge:


I saw a video from May Made Made It on YouTube where she was making a wreath card using the Spirelli technique and I thought it looked so cool that I couldn't wait to give it a try. You can see the video by clicking HERE. I thought her card was so pretty but I really wanted to make my wreath green so I used some green cardstock and some green DMC Floss to make my Spirelli Wreath. I thought it would be cute to hang my wreath on a door so I cut out some cardstock rectangles/squares to try and recreate a door and door panels. Not perfect but I think the door turned out pretty cute lol! I attached my wreath and then cut out a bow using some red fun foam. I love using foam on bows cause they don't "smoosh" as easily in the mail. They seem to have a little give and bounce back a little. I colored some bling with a yellow marker to act as the ornaments/lights, adhered a brad for the knob and attached my greeting along the bottom of the door. The inside reads....."to be jolly! Merry Christmas!". I think it came out really cute and the wreath was so easy to make! I will definitely be making more of these :) 


Items from my stash that I used that have not been used in a while are:

--Spellbinders Scallop Circle Dies (at least 6 months, probably longer)--
--Brad (over 6 years)--
--Bitty Banner Framelits (over 2 years)--
--Peachy Keen Greeting Stamp (over a year)--

Birthday card with an Adorable Elephant

Happy Friday everyone!!!

Today I am back with a really quick post to share a card that I made for the current challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Here is their sketch #366:


and here is the card that I created based on the above sketch:


The banner in the sketch screamed celebration/birthday to me so I decided to go with a birthday card. I can never have enough of those! I colored that sweet little elephant with my Copics and then used a oval die to cut him out. My greeting actually came from the paper pack. There was a sheet that had a variety of celebration phrases, so I just simply fussy cut one out and adhered it to my oval. I popped it up onto my card base with some foam tape and then added my banner with foam tape as well. I added a bit of wink of stella to the solid colored pieces of the banner for a bit of sparkle. Easy peasy and will be simple to mail!
 Gotta love that!!

I will also be linking up my card over at

If You See Me Running...

Happy Wednesday!


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


haha!! I think this greeting is absolutely hysterical and oh so true when it comes to me! If I am running, something is definitely chasing me lol! Anywho, I used the brand new stamp set titled, Zombies and colored her in with my Copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut her out. I stamped that funny greeting, also in the Zombies set, onto a piece of white cardstock that I had cut out using one of the Stitched Rounded Rectangles dies and placed that onto my card front. I popped up my little zombie with some foam tape and finished off my card with a purple bow.

Hello

Hey everyone! 

Tonight I am back with a really quick post to share a card that I created for the current color challenge that is going on over at Just Us Girls Challenges.


Here is the card that I was able to create for the challenge:


When I came across this patterned paper in my stash, I knew it would be perfect for this challenge! It was like it was screaming for me to play along lol! I kept my card pretty simple and cut out three pieces of the patterned paper. Two pieces were used as strips and the last piece was used for the scallop along the edge. I wrapped some white twine around, tied a bow and then popped that up onto my card base with some foam tape. I used a die from Pink & Main for my "Hello" and then used a white gel pen to draw some doodle lines along the sides and bottom. Pretty simple but I adore how it turned out! Best part is, there aren't a lot of embellishments so mailing this will be a piece of cake :) 

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!

Shopping Our Stash #266: Be Counted

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

This week, challenge #266 is....
Stand Up & Be Counted
(use numbers)

Here is the project that I created for this challenge:


Most of you know that I love creating things for Halloween so when I saw this challenge was to use numbers, my mind automatically went to the number "31". I pulled out my candy caddy die from Jaded Blossom and got to work. The candy caddy die has not been used for awhile, maybe a year or more, so I was pretty excited to be using that again. I cut it out and then used a spiderweb border punch to cut out a web to place along the bottom. I pulled out some old glitter thickers and placed the "31" onto a white circle and added the sentiment onto a banner. I wrapped the candies with some cardstock and closed the caddy shut with some ribbon and a pumpkin button.

I love these little mermaids and ordered them as soon as they came out, however this is the first time I pulled them out to actually use them. When I saw the picture over at Give A Crafter A Cookie and the Pun Challenge over at Lawnscaping, I knew this set would be perfect. I colored in my images with my Copics and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I also decided to use one of the slider dies to turn my card into a slider.

May Your Halloween Be Sweet!

Happy Wednesday!


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


I love making Halloween goodie bags and little treat holders to have on hand to give out. I think it is probably my most favorite holiday to actually craft for. This new set from Pink & Main titled, Sweet Halloween, was perfect for a little goodie bag! I created my bag with a punch board and then used one of the big scallops in the Scallop Borders die set across the top for a fun edge. I assembled my bag and got to work coloring those cute little candies! After I had the candy colored in, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and place them onto my bag. How cute is that greeting? It is also in the Sweet Halloween stamp set!! I finished off my bag with some ribbon and enamel dots.

Shopping Our Stash #265: What's the Good Word?

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

This week, challenge #265 is....
What's the Good Word
(use word dies)

Here is the project that I created for this challenge:


I decided to get a jump start on some Christmas gifts and make a little gift card holder. I used the Embossed Gift Card Holder die from My Creative Time to create it. I haven't used this die in a very long time, but it is still one of my favorite dies. I covered the front with some patterned papers, ribbon and some doodles with my white gel pen. I cut out the Believe from some black cardstock, added some wink of stella, a santa hat and a rhinestone to dot the "i".  I also added a bit of Liquid Applique to the Santa Hat, then used my heat tool so that it would fluff up. 

Here is a look at the gift card holder opened:

Camp Create: Remarkable Resist

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


Day 3 was Remarkable Resist!


I decided to make a birthday card to add to my stash. Can never have too many birthday cards right?? lol! The inspiration for my card design came from Stephanie Klauck's card that she made for the example. I love how she added the fun little strip of stripes along the side. I used the stars from the Super Boy & Magical Memories stamp sets. After I had them embossed with clear embossing powder, I blended some distress inks over the top and wiped away the excess to keep the starts white. I added my sentiment onto a pice of vellum and attached that to my card base and finished it off with some sequins. 

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