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


I used some older patterned papers that I had in my stash and built up my card base according to the sketch. I took that sweet little mermaid and rock from the Mermazing stamp set by MFT and colored them in with my Copics. After I had them colored, I fussy cut them out and added them to my little square window frame. I finished off my card with some crochet thread and a few sequins. 

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Seas & Greetings!

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Saturday!
Today I am back to share a card that I created using some fabulous stamps and dies that can be found in the
 Dies R Us Store

I love interactive cards and was so super excited to give the 

I started out by cutting out all my panels in some fun patterned papers and a coordinating solid:

I then figured out which patterned papers I wanted to use and placed then onto my solid cardstock and adhered my panels together.


Now came the fun part! I cut out some fun nautical pieces from the Nautical die set from Cutter Bee and some scallops from the Accordion Circle Card set  and started decorating my panels.


Here is what my finished card looks like:


I stamped my greeting onto a banner from the Banners die set from Cutter Bee and finished off my card with a couple of sequins and some paper buttons. I think it came out so cute and it was really simple to put together. I love all things nautical!

A Spring Hello

Hi crafty friends!
Happy Friday!

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the


When I saw this inspiration board, I was inspired by a few things. I have recently been planting flowers and getting hanging baskets to add color to my front/back yards. A couple of years ago, my wonderful son built me a wooden flower box underneath the window on our shed. I love getting flowers and planting in that every year since then. The flowers and the basket in the above photo made me think of that. I was also drawn to the pink and purples and of course that adorable kitty!
With all of that in mind, I set out to make my card. I knew I was going to try and create a scene so I used a few different stamp/die sets. Here is a look at what I was inspired to create:


For my card, I used the Wonderful Window die from Lawn Fawn and cut out all the pieces in white. I colored my window box to appear as wood and colored each tulip alternating between pink and purple. Before I adhered my window to my card front, I added a little valance curtain and my light blue "wall". I used the grass from the Chirpy Chirp Chirp stamp set and well as the butterfly. My little kitty actually came from the Spooktacular stamp set and the Hello was one of the little freebies from placing a order. I think this came out so super cute!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate it!!

I hope you have a great crafty day!!

Hi crafty friends!
I hope your Thursday is off to a terrific start!

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the sketch challenge over at
I played along with sketch #98 which is:


and here is a look at the card I made based on the above sketch:


I recently purchased the stamp set with the telephone a few days ago and was happy to pull it out and use it so fast! Normally I just hoard new stamps and never use them haha! The stamp/die set is actually meant to be used as a shaker element but I decided to just pop up all the center pieces with foam tape and give it another look. I also had this fun patterned paper in my stash that coordinated perfectly with the telephone stamp so everything came together rather quickly. I love when that happens lol!

 2015: November
2016: June
2017: March

Well, I did not work on any of my albums so I have no progress to update. I am hoping there will be a change next month. Fingers crossed!! lol!

Hi crafty friends!
 I hope your day is off to a marvelous start!
 Today I am here to share a card sketch with you from the Stick It Down Challenge Blog

The sketches are normally posted on the first of the month with reveals of the design team's interpretations throughout the month. Today the card team designers are showing what they created for this month's card sketch.

Here is another peek at the card sketch for May 2017:



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


When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of a long/tall card. I created my card base out of a piece of 7.5" x 9" cardstock. Once folded my card measures, 3.75" x 9". I stamped that cute little Penny Black image onto some white cardstock and colored her with my copic markers.  I stamped my greeting with some chalk ink and drew some lines around the border with a purple micron pen. I popped up my white panel with some foam tape.

You Are Out Of This World!

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Saturday!
Today I am back to share a card that I created using some fabulous stamps and dies that can be found in the
 Dies R Us Store

I have been seeing a lot of Galaxy type backgrounds lately and I thought it would be fun to give it a try and create a card with this technique. 

I started out by gathering all my distress inks that I wanted to use.

The colors of distress inks that I used were: Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, Mermaid lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot. 

Next I stamped my images from the Lawn Fawn Out Of This World stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. Please forgive the dark pictures, it was night when I was creating this card.


Next up, I used the coordinating Lawn Fawn Out Of This World dies to cut out my stamped images.


They line up perfectly!

Here is a look at my finished card:


To create my moon, I free hand cut a domed shape and used a hole punch to cut out some "craters". I placed some cardstock behind the moon a little bit darker so that the holes had some dimension. I popped up my astronaut and planets with some foam tape and added a bit of shimmer to my vellum for just a bit of sparkle. 

Here is a look at the Dies R US products that I used on my card today:

Today starts a new challenge over at the 

Our sponsor for challenge #69 is:


Here is a peek at the cookie inspiration photo for this challenge:


I used a digi stamp that was provided by My Besties for my card.


After I had my image printed out, I colored her in with my Copic markers. Once she was all colored, I used a Spellbinder frame die to cut her out. I added some ribbon and my greeting to my card front and then popped up my image with some foam tape. I added some wink of stella for a little shimmer in a few places and added some pearls and a fun little bow to finish off my card.

Flying by with a Hello

*This post contains affliate links, which means I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase using any of the links in this post (at NO additional cost to you). Thank you for your support!*

Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


I love sending out happy mail but have been slacking lately on actually getting cards in the mail. So I thought I would make a few Hello cards to have on hand and hopefully be better about sending out some mail! Anyone else have this problem? Or is it just me?? lol!


I made an A2 card base out of some Kraft card stock and layered some Stitched Rounded Rectangles on top. Isn't that plaid paper from the Be Brave paper pad awesome! I then added a strip of kraft cardstock and a little white scallop that I cut out using one of the borders from the Scallop Borders set. I cut out two circles using the Stitched Circle Dies. One from some blue cardstock and another from some adorable cloud paper from the Take Flight paper pad. I colored that sweet little doggy from the Plane Sweet stamp set and used the coordinating Plane Sweet dies to cut him and the banner out. I popped them both up with some foam tape and drew a little black line to connect them. I think it came out so super adorable!!
