Hello

Hey crafty friends!
How is your Wednesday going so far? 
I hope good :) Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 
Pink & Main stamps and dies.

BlogButton

I like sending cards to my crafty friends so I needed to add to my Hello cards stockpile. I pulled out the Scentsational stamp set and created this:


I created a square card base that measures 4.25" and added some polka dot paper to the top and black cardstock to the bottom. I colored that cute little skunk from the Scentsational set and cut it out with the coordinating dies. I added some grossgrain ribbon, tied a bow and popped my skunk up with foam tape and added some glossy accents to the bow in her hair and to the ladybugs. For the finishing touch, I added some doodles with my white gel pen to the bottom and used the Hello Die for my greeting.

I love you in the morning....

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a terrific Tuesday so far!
Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the current sketch challenge over at

Here is a look at their sketch:

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


I found this sweet little sentiment stamp in the dollar bin at Michael's quite a few months ago. I thought it was the perfect size for this sketch. After I had it stamped out, I used a die from MFT to cut it out. I layered my card with some papers from the Everyday 6x6  paper pad and then popped up my greeting panel with some foam tape. I added a few hearts and applied some wink of stella to them and glossy accents. To finish off the card, I rounded the bottom two corners. 

I will also be entering my card into the following challenge:

Stick It Down Card Sketch Challenge

Hi crafty friends!
I hope your Monday is off to a marvelous start! 

Today I am here to share a card sketch with you from the 
Stick It Down is a monthly sketch challenge blog.  They provide sketches not only for a card once a month, but also for double and single page layouts! Cool right??
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 look at the card sketch for February 2017:

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


I cut out a piece of Kraft cardstock using a stitched rectangular die and placed it on top of my coral card base. I die cut a coffee mug from some doodlebug patterned paper, added a white heart and popped it up on my card with some foam tape. I stamped my greeting using some brown ink onto a strip of white cardstock, notched the ends and also placed that onto the card with some foam tape. I finished off my card with some faux stitching with my white gel pen. Super duper simple but I love that it gets straight to the point hehehe!

I hope you will stop by the Stick It Down Challenge blog and take a peek at what my design team sisters created with the sketch. I hope you are inspired to join us! I would love for you to link up so I could take a peek at what you created :)

Ombre Hello

Hi crafty friends!
Happy Friday!! Any fun plans for the weekend? It's supposed to be almost 70 in my area so hopefully I can find something to do outdoors and enjoy a little warm weather :) 

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for a couple of challenges.

and 

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


When I saw the sketch, the first thing that came to my mind were some words going down in a straight line. Originally I was thinking rainbow but I still had some of these pink hearts on my desk left over from Valentine's so the idea of ombre was born lol! I got out some pink cardstock in different shades and die cut the word "hello" using the Hello There Die-namics. I tried my best to adhere them as straight as I could going down the card front lol. I added a stitched line from a another die and finished off my card with a few of the puffy heart stickers. Easy peasy!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation! I really appreciate it!!
I hope you have a great crafty day and a lovely weekend!

DCWV Feb. Stack-a-Holic Challenge

Happy Thursday crafty friends!
Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the 

Here is a look at the card sketch for February:


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


I adore the Meet Me In Paris stack from DCWV. I used it for all the patterned papers on my card. The gold foil accents in this paper are so very pretty! I inked all my edges with some Vintage Photo Distress ink and then layered everything together. The greeting came from the DIY Project Stack Favor Boxes, also from DCWV. I popped up the greeting and banner it is sitting on with some foam tape for a little dimension. I die cut some flowers and added a little bling to the centers. The black "enamel dots" are actually circles cut from the back side of the pink polka dot paper with some wink of stella and glossy accents added to them. I love this card and am so happy with how it turned out!

You're Scent-sational

Hey there crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday so far!
Today I have a fun little project to share with you that I made using some of those new stamps and dies from Pink & Main!

BlogButton

I found a tutorial online that showed this sweet little treat box card and I knew I just had to try and make one!


After I made my box, I stamped out my little skunk and colored her in with my Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut her out and placed her on top of a stitched circle from the Stitched Circle Dies with a little bit of foam tape. I love these little skunks in the brand new Scentsational set! I added a little "lace" trim by die cutting a border from the new Lacy Border Dies from some white cardstock and adding that to the outside of the pocket.


To create my tag, I used the Stitched Rounded Rectangle dies and added a bit of the patterned paper at the bottom, used a hole punch at the top and threaded some ribbon through. The polka dot cardstock is from the Spring Color Pop paper pad. I filled the treat box with some chocolate kisses. The box is being held shut with more ribbon. I added a few sequins to finish off my project.

Shopping Our Stash #290

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

This week challenge #290 is....
Heartless
(Romantic project without using any hearts)

Here is what I created:


I have had this stamp in my stash for about 5 years now and it's been about that long since I used it last. As soon as I saw what the challenge was my mind immediately went to this stamp. I stamped it out onto white and onto a bunch of different patterned papers so that I could paper piece it so that their clothes and umbrella could have some fun patterns :) I used some stitched ovals to cut it out and popped it up onto another oval. I finished off my card with a fun scalloped edge and some pretty sheer ribbon. 

Neglected items from my stash:
--Patterned Paper; I used all scraps
--Stamp: Haven't used it in five years

Be sure to stop by the Shopping Our Stash challenge blog to see the amazing creations my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to play along with us, I would love to see what you create.

Christmas Card Challenges #6

Hello crafty friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday :) 

Today marks the beginning of another challenge at 

The challenge is:

Isn't that a pretty scene? The horses look so festive!
I was struggling with what to make for this challenge. I kept trying to get an idea and it just seemed like I had lost my mojo. Well, the other day I was looking through some Cricut Cartridges and found this pretty horse frame and BAM! Idea born lol!


I cut out my frame shadow in red cardstock and then the horse layer with some gold glitter cardstock. I added some striped paper to the front of my square card base, adhered some ribbon and then placed my horse to the front of my card. I added my greeting, some pearls and a little holly for the horse's neck. The finishing touch was a pretty bow. So super simple to make but I have to say, I adore how it turned out! It is so sparkly and pretty! Gotta love that!!

Be sure to head over to the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see the amazing cards my design team sisters created. I hope you are inspired and decide to join us and play along with the challenge. I would love to see what you create :)

Hi There!

Hey guys! 
I normally try to not post twice in one day but I was able to get a card done just in time for the sketch challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches #389 so I figured I better link it up before I forgot lol!

Here is a look at their sketch:

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


I bought this stamp a few months ago and this sketch was the perfect time to get it ink-y! I colored her in with my Copic markers and used a cross-stitch die to cut her out. I matted it onto some Kraft cardstock, stamped my greeting in the top corner and wrapped some Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine around the bottom. I popped it up with some foam tape onto some pretty floral cardstock and attached it all to a Kraft card base. I finished it off with a few enamel dots. I think it came out super cute and it looks so much better in person. I was losing sunlight at the time I took the picture :(

Rocket Ship Valentine

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a splendid Saturday :) 

Today I have a fun little valentine to show you. Every year, I make my hubby and kids 14 valentine's. They wake up each morning with a different surprise starting on Feb. 1 and ending on Feb. 14. They look forward to it each year, I mean who wouldn't right? Here is a look at what they woke up to today:


I paired up the sentiment from the Candy Gram stamp set from Jaded Blossom with the Rocket Shuttle Bag from SVGCutting files and Voila! So incredibly easy and it came together rather quickly. Quick is important since I'm making three of each lol! I was able to fit 5 of these fun size Milky Way candy bars into the bag (I sized it down a little). My greeting is wrapped around a bamboo skewer that I cut and colored with a Copic Marker and then placed in between the candy bars. The flames are vellum that I colored with an orange Copic marker and then used some clear Wink of Stella to give it some shimmer. The little hearts are puffy stickers that I found in the Target Dollar Spot. 

I'm entering this into the Jaded Blossom Valentine Challenge

Pink & Main February Release Blog Hop



We are celebrating Pink & Main's February Release with a fun and inspirational blog hop!
Be sure to go to www.pinkandmain.com and check out all the new stamps and dies!
And be sure not to miss the brand new paper line that we are very excited to debut...we have 3 new 6x6 paper pads that are perfect for Spring and coordinate with each other.
Please hop along through all of the design team members' blogs, and a couple of guest designers' too!
There will even be some great prizes along the way! Woot woot!!

For my project, I created a fun little file folder notebook:


I found this fun tutorial for a File Folder Notebook on Splitcoast Stampers and knew I wanted to give it a go for my hop project. I had this fun pastel color file folder in my stash and thought it looked spring-y, so that's what I went with. I followed the tutorial as far as folding and making the actual notebook. To decorate it, I cut out a scallop circle from the Scallop Circle Dies in white and a yellow circle using the Stitched Circle Dies. I layered them on top of each other and then colored up that cute watering can from the Seeds Of Kindness stamp set with my Copics. I used the coordinating Seeds Of Kindness dies to cut it out and then I popped it up with some foam tape. I added a strip of ribbon to the side of my folder, tied a bow and tucked my sentiment from the Seeds of Kindness set under the bow. I gave it a little curl for some added dimension. 

The folder is held shut with some velcro. This is what you see when you open it:


There is a mini legal pad on the right hand side. I added some coordinating cardstock to the top of the pad and then added that fun yellow border to the top by using one of the borders from the Lacy Border Dies. I also stamped some hearts in different spots for the first few pages of the memo pad. I stamped another sentiment from the Seeds of Kindness stamp set and popped that up with some foam tape on the left hand side of the folder. 

I could not resist making a cute little clip with one of those sweet bunnies in the Seeds of Kindness set! Look how cute she is:


Adorable!

Each blog has a prize to give away and I am very excited to give away the stamp set I used on my project which is:

If You Give A Crafter A Cookie #62

Happy Thursday!!
Today starts a new challenge over at
If You Give A Crafter A Cookie

We have two sponsors for this challenge. They are:

Elisabeth Bell
and
The Cutting Cafe

Here is a look at the Cookie Inspiration Photo for this challenge:

So pretty! I love those polka dots!!

Here is the card I created based on the above cookie photo:


I used a file from one of our sponsors, The Cutting Cafe, called "I Heart U Word Shaped Card".
 I love the polka dots on the cookies in the photo so I went with some polka dot paper for my heart on my card. I added some fun shaker bits of small hearts, micro beads, confetti and small sequins to the center.


I stamped my greeting and curled it a little with my bone folder to give it a little dimension. I added a heart button with a crochet thread bow to the middle. The file even came with an envelope. I cut that out and then adhered the polka dot heart that was cut from the center of my card to the bottom front corner. I finished off my card and envelope with some fun white doodle with my gel pen. This card is going to my hubby for Valentine's day. I hope he likes it :)

Shopping Our Stash #289

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

This week challenge #289 is....
Winter Blues
(Use blue but DO NOT make a Winter card.)

Here is what I created:


I found this cute patterned paper in my stash and so a birthday card was a must for me for this challenge lol! I used a die to create that fun scallop rectangle that I placed onto my card base and then I layered an embossed piece of white cardstock on top. I die cut the balloon and popped it up with some foam tape. I added a little black thread bow to match the string. I was going to call it good but my card still looked like it needed something to me.  I randomly started placing sequins and star confetti in a diagonal line and loved the end result! It reminds me of confetti being thrown and a single balloon getting lose and flying away lol!

Neglected Items From My Stash That I Used Are:

  • Patterned Paper: I got it from the Dollar Spot about a year ago and used it for the first time on this card
  • Polka Dot Embossing Folder: I always reach for the mini (swiss) dot folder instead of this one.

Be sure to stop by the Shopping Our Stash challenge blog to see the amazing creations my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to play along with us, I would love to see what you create.

This little box was so super easy to make! I cut my box out from the Spring Holiday Cards Cartridge, assembled it and then cut a 1" strip from patterned paper and wrapped it around my box. I cut the Scallop Doily from the Elegant Edges cartridge, added a circle to the center and popped it up with foam tape to the front of the box. That cute little Valentine Cupid Teddy Bear came from the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge. After I had him all assembled, I also used some foam tape to pop him up onto the front of the doily. I finished off my box with some pearls in the bottom corner and a white satin bow at the top. The inside is filled with 3 fun size packs of candy.

The first challenge being the sketch challenge over at
Here is a look at their sketch:

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #197

Here is a look at the card I created based on their sketch:


I recently got this stamp from Jaded Blossom. It was the freebie stamp for Jan. if you spent a certain amount. I thought it was perfect to play along with the sketch. The stamp pretty much did all the work for me lol! I stamped the image and did some simple coloring with my Copics. I used a stitched die to cut out my image panel and I adhered to to some polka dot vellum. I popped it up with foam tape onto a shimmery pink scalloped panel and then adhered everything to my card base. Super easy! To finish off the card, I added some wink of stella & some polka dots to a few of the hearts.

The other challenges I will be entering my card into are:
