Hello Friends! Hope you are having a fun weekend! I am going to make this quick because I have a fun weekend planned, too! As of today, all of my girls are home from college for the whole summer! I am so excited! So for today's project, I used a couple of stamps from Pink Ink Stamps LLC. I really love the classic images Pink Ink has and these are my favorite! I don't know if you can tell in the picture but I used an embossing folder on the base of this card. I stamped the Bitty Butterfly 3 times and colored it with copic markers. I colored the butterfly to match the Bo Bunny papers I used. I die cut the butterflies using the Classic Square Layering dies from Tonic Studios. I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment and die cut it using the Oval Layering dies from Tonic. You can purchase Pink Ink Stamps at Ellen Hutson, LLC. Ellen has a great selection of Pink Ink in her store! This was a fun but quick card to create plus I used colors that I really love! I made a stack of these for my mom to send to her friends!

Hello Friends! A few weeks ago my friend, Jeanne Streif, contacted me and asked me to join the Paper and More.com design team! Of course, I said yes because who doesn't love cardstock? So today I have a fun project to share with you using Paper and More's cardstock. This project was the result of a personal challenge of mine. I challenged myself to get back to basics and create a project using only cardstock, ink, stamps and dies! No patterned paper for me on this project! It's been a long time since I have done a project like this. Here is what I came up with! Using Natural White Cotton Paper 80#, I created the flowers. I really love the weight and composition of this cardstock. I stamped the flower images and die cut them. Once they were die cut, I spritzed them with water and shaped them. Once they were dry, the flower petals held there shape and look fabulous! (even if I did make them myself!). At the end of this post, there is a list of supplies I used with affiliate links to the supplies. Here is a video showing you how I created this project! Enjoy! Supplies Used: Cardstock - Natural White Cotton Paper 80#, Brown Kraft Cardstock 65# Stamps - Botanical Rose stamp set & Classic Leaf stamp set (Heartfelt Creations); Music Notes background (Prima) Ink - Old Paper Distress Ink (Ranger); Olive Grove Memento Luxe ink (Tsukineko); Crumb Cake ink pad (Stampin' Up!) Dies - French Pastry Doily Die, Botanical Wings Die & Classic Leaf die - Heartfelt Creations Embellishments - pearls (eyelet outlet); lace, twine, metal embellishments, seam binding ribbon Continue reading

Hello friends! Today I have two quick and easy cards to share with you using some new releases from Pink Ink Stamps. I really love these cute stamps and they really do bring back some sweet memories from when my girls were younger! For this card, I stamped the Super Sundae image onto white cardstock and colored it with copic markers. I die cut it using Classic Ovals from Spellbinders. I stamped the sentiment and cut it into a little banner. I dug out some patterned paper I had been hoarding - Melissa Frances 6x6 and used that for the background. The base of the card is kraft cardstock. For this card, I stamped the Single Scoop image and punched it out with my hand-held punches. I added the Sweet Memories sentiment along with some other fun embellishments! Sweet and simple cards bring a smile to every face just like these images bring back some really great memories! Thanks for stopping by today! PS - I have included an affiliate link to Ellen Hutson LLC for the Pink Ink Stamps I used on these cards. Ellen carries the full line of Pink Ink Stamps!

Hello Friends! Today I would like to share with you a fun project using the March Creative Cafe' Kit - Spring Is Here. I created a shaped card by cutting the base with a Grand Scalloped Circle die. I really love to make shaped cards. They are very unique and eye-catching! To create the base of this card, I folded a full sheet of the yellow cardstock ( included in the kit) in half. I positioned the scalloped circle die so that there was a small place at the fold that didn't get cut. Then I used the smaller scalloped circle dies to cut the patterned paper and the strip of yellow cardstock. I stamped the basket, bunny and sentiment onto white cardstock using Espresso Truffle Memento ink and colored them with copic markers. I used a hand-held punch for the sentiment. After adhering the patterned paper and the yellow cardstock strip, I added the yellow seam binding. Then using some 3d foam squares, I added the sentiment and cute little bunny and basket. To finish the card I tied a bit of the green eyelash ribbon around the bow. Here is how I finished the inside of this card! Thanks for stopping by today!! Tomorrow is a Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!!
