Hello friends! Today I have 2 fun cards to share with you that I created using new stamps from Pink Ink Stamps! Don't you just love to wear flip flops? I know I do and I get kinda sad when it's too cold outside to wear them. I am happy to report that while it's now toasty warm here in Missouri, it is warm enough for flip flops! Here are my cards! For this first card, I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers, waterbrush and watercolor paper. I stamped the Flowery Flip Flop image all over the watercolor paper using Versamark ink. Then I dusted the images with white embossing powder and heat set it. Then using the Sparkle Markers, I waterbrushed a rainbow effect all over. I cut the panel to 4 x 5 1/4" and layered it onto a white cardstock base. I embossed the Sandy Toes sentiment onto some sky blue cardstock and cut it out. I adhered the sentiment to the card using 3d foam squares. Here is a closer look..... For this next card, I stamped the Flowery Flip Flips onto watercolor paper using Timber Brown Staz-on ink. Then I watercolored the flip flops with my Sparkle Markers. I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock and cut it out, too. I just love these images! The cards turned out super cute! Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello friends! I know this is a bit late to share but I just realized that I didn't share the Mother's Day card I created for my mom. I had alot of fun creating this card. I used alot of stuff that has been in my stash for awhile. The patterned paper is from the Garden Journal Collection from Bo Bunny. The die behind the flowers is Heirloom Oval (Spellbinders). I used the Botanical Rose die set from Heartfelt Creations for the base of my flowers and for the leaves. The middle of the largest flower is the Bitty Blossoms set. I added some of the smaller roses in the Bitty Blossoms set too. I used Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and sponged it on some of my roses and around the edges of my paper and die cut. I added the "I heart you" sticker to complete this card. Here is a close up....... To help you, I am including links to the products I used in this blog post. These are affiliate links, which means that I receive a small amount of commission at no extra cost to you. These direct links make it easier for you to make your online purchases. Oh by the way, my Mom loved the card. Of course, she has to say that because she is my mom. But I think it's a pretty card, too! LOL Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! Hope you are having a great Monday so far. I have a bit of a family update but I promise there is a new project in this blog post! This past weekend was so much fun for our whole family. My oldest daughter graduated from college with her Bachelors degree in Music Education. Right now she is looking for a job but we are keeping a positive attitude and know that whoever hires her will be blessed with a great teacher! If you have been following my blog, then you will remember this is my daughter who was so sick back in September. She is so healthy now! She is ready to go out and change the world! LOL We are very thankful! This is my hubby and I with our daughter! This week we will also be celebrating my mom's birthday. Here is a card I created for her using the Sara Davies Signature Collection - Floral Delight plus some other Crafter's Companion stuff from other collections! The base of this card measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 square. I used Kraft cardstock for the base. I don't know why but Kraft is just my go-to cardstock! The papers are from the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Floral Delight 6x6 paper pad. I even cut out the roses from another sheet of the same patterned paper. The sentiment is from the Vintage Floral Collection EZMount Stamp Set - Verses. The die is the Downton Abbey Metal Die - Ornate Mirror. I added some Diamond Stickles on the roses that I cut out plus I added some pearls in all 4 corners. I think my mom will love this card! I really love the Floral Delight collection.

Hello friends! Today I have an elegant card to share with you using the April Creative Cafe' Kit - Petticoat Fashion plus the add-on stamp set, The Greatest Gift Of Life from The Rubber Cafe'. I really love the color combo of pink with silver/gray so I went with the very pretty patterned paper included in this kit to make my card. This card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" or A2 size. I cut the gray textured cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11" and folded it at 5 1/2" to create the base of the card. I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4" and the pink/silver doily paper to 3 3/4 x 5" and adhered that to the white layer. I die cut a small doily from the gray cardstock to layer the sentiment on. Here is how I did the sentiment. Stamp the sentiment onto white cardstock using gray ink. Stamp one of the swirls in the stamp set around the sentiment using black ink. I started at the top and stamped around my sentiment. Then using scissors trim around the swirls and layer this onto the card! I added the gray seam binding to finish this card. Love theses colors!! Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello Friends! It's the second Wednesday of the month and that means a new release from Heartfelt Creations. You are going to love this new collection! Take a walk along the edge of the deep blue sea, feel the warm sand between your toes and breathe in the salty air. Balmy breezes tousle your hair and toy with the exotic hibiscus flower behind your ear as you stoop to snatch a lustrous seashell that has been swept onto the beach with the incoming tide. Cares and worries melt away because life really is better at the seaside. The cool, crystal clear water lapping at the shoreline beckons you and you cannot resist the sudden urge to dive right in. Before you know it you have been submerged into a magical underwater world where you find yourself settling on a jagged reef surrounded with burnished coral, glassy seashells and mystical sea creatures more beautiful than your imagination could ever conjure. A peek behind the coral and waltzing seaweed finds you nose to nose with a school of fish gliding every so gently with their long, graceful flowing tails and glistening scales decorated with an abundance of shimmering and alluring colors. Delicate sea horses and magnificent jelly fish dart and flit among the dancing aquatic plant life as to entertain you with a glorious underwater show being performed just for you. Welcome to “Under the Sea”, the newest collection by Heartfelt Creations. This water themed assembling of magnificent papers, stamps and dies will have you creating ravishing underwater scenes perfect for documenting your seaside vacations, ocean themed altered art pieces or salt water card creations. The tranquil color palette of calming blues, greens and teals, paired with golden yellows, subtle shades of pinks, purples, corals and reds are sure to soothe your soul. Creating projects with a tropical flair that will “make a splash” has been made simple with decorative papers boasting mesmerizing patterns of sea shells, florals, delicate swirls and alluring hibiscus blossoms. The intricate, detailed stamp illustrations of underwater sea creatures, glistening seashells, and exotic hibiscus flowers are sublime for shaping and creating dimensional elements adding a realistic touch to any underwater themed paper craft design.

Hello friends! How are you doing on this fine Monday? I have gotten off to a slow start but I am finally getting things done. Don't forget to comment on my Pocket Pen Pal post for a chance to win the Pocket Page I created. You can find that blog post HERE. Now on to today's project. I created a Center Step card for my daughter's birthday last week and wanted to share it with you after her birthday! Here is my card...... To create this card, I used the tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers. The beautiful flowers are from the Sheena Douglass Perfect Partners - Wild Rose-Briar stamp set. This stamp set has a matching die, too. This stamp set is in the Perfect Partners line from Crafter's Companion. I stamped the images onto some watercolor paper using Jet Black Staz-on. Then using the Spectrum Noir Vintage Sparkle Markers - Vintage Tea - Biscuit; Vintage Home - Hearthside; Vintage Bloom - Sage; Falling Leaves - Smoked Quartz; Clear Overlay - I colored the flowers and stem then blended the colors using the Clear Overlay. When you use watercolor paper with the Sparkle Markers, you can move the color around just like you were watercoloring but you get the most beautiful shimmer! It is so awesome! For the bottom of the card, I used the Edge'ables Only Words - Just For You die. I thought that went perfect with this type of card. It can be hard to add a sentiment to this card, so the edge dies work perfectly. My daughter loved the card so Yeah for me! LOL Thanks for stopping by today! Check back tomorrow for a new card using supplies from The Rubber Cafe'. Continue reading

Hello friends! Hope you had a wonderful weekend like I did! My hubby and I will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary on Wednesday so we took the chance and went away for the weekend. We didn't go too far away but it was really nice being alone together! Sometime with our regular life stuff like work and kids, etc. you take each other for granted. It's nice to just be together without anything you have to do, ya know? Well now I am back to the regular routine today and while it was tough getting up at 5am, here I am ready to share a project with you. This is a gift bag set I created using stamps, dies and Aquablend pencils from Crafter's Companion. I really love to color with these new watercolor pencils. So easy to use and you get great results! I just used a regular little brown paper lunch sack to create this quick gift bag. I also used the Bebunni Floral Metal Dies - Cottage Lace die for the top detail of my bag. The stamp set is A Little Bit Sketchy - Poppies and Daisies set. After I stamped the image using stazon ink, I colored the watercolor pencils directly on the image and blended them with a waterbrush. I did this technique on the card. For the image on the bag, I used a paintbrush/water and picked up the color directly from the pencil. You can see that there are 2 different looks but both are really pretty. Here is a close up of the card. I really love poppies, don't you? The Spectrum Noir Aquablend Pencils aren't available yet but when they are I will let you know. The are really wonderful to work with! Thanks for stopping by today. Here is a list of supplies that I used to create this gift set! These include links to the products but they aren't affiliate links. They are just links for your information!

Hello friends! Today I have a fun tent topper card to share with you using the supplies from the Creative Cafe' Kit - Special Celebration. I really love making this type of card. I think it looks so cute but it still fits into a regular envelope so you can mail it to that special person. To create this card, cut a piece of the kraft cardstock to 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 and fold it at 4 1/4". Cut a piece of the patterned paper to 4 x 4" square and adhere to the front of the card. Die cut a scallop circle from the pink patterned paper and die cut a classic circle from the white cardstock. All of these papers and cardstock are included in your kit! Stamp the cupcake image onto the white cardstock and color using Spectrum Noir markers. After you color the cupcake, fussy cut it and adhere it onto the die cut scalloped circle. Using a ruler, adhere the die cut scalloped circle so that the top of the circle is at the 5 1/2" mark. That will make your card an A2 sized card - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". Here is a close-up. I added the sentiment along the bottom and the seam binding around the middle to finish the card. This card will fit into an A2 size envelope and shouldn't need extra postage. You know that is always a plus with me! LOL It's also time for the April Creative Cafe' kit to be introduced. I will have projects to share with you starting next week. It's super cute.

Laurie, If you position the die right on your paper, you can get more die cuts....know what I mean? So far, I haven't found an easier way than using this type of adhesive as I always get glue everywhere! LOL

Hello friends! It's the second Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for a new release from Heartfelt Creations! Warm breezes blow, busy bees buzz from blossom to blossom, and perfectly shaped, ripe berries beckon you as you catch a glimpse of them through the vines winding their way up the rickety old picket fence in the picture perfect garden patch. Bring back fond memories of strawberry picking while the early morning dew still lingered on the vines with the new release by Heartfelt Creations. The Berry Cafe Collection will have you reminiscing of filling pails until overflowing while playing the game of "two for me" and "one for the pail", which always led to the task taking a tad longer. Travel back in time to the days of your childhood where you shared your first strawberry milkshake, or float at the local ice cream parlor with that special someone you so adored. Filled with sweet illustrations of vining strawberries, adorable children, elegant blossoms, old fashioned strawberry stands as well as delicately patterned papers featuring eyelet prints, soft checks, ornate borders and delicious clusters of strawberries nestled among flowers, you are certain to find yourself warming in the berry patch and hankering for a cold strawberry treat.

Hello friends! Hope your weekend is going well. The weather here in Missouri is getting better everyday! Spring is finally coming but it sure has taken its time. This week, Crafter's Companion releases the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Butterfly Lullaby. If you love butterflies, then you will love everything about this collection. One of the dies included in this collection is a delicate sentiment die. Sometimes it can be frustrating and down right messy to adhere these types of delicate die cuts to the project. So while I am showing off this beautiful collection, I thought I would also show you how I adhere the die cut! As you can see, I die cut the sentiment die - Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Butterfly Lullaby Decorative Metal Die - With Love, from some sparkling purple glitter paper. This paper came from a stack by Core'dinations. I ran this small piece thru my Xyron machine and that laid a thin layer of adhesive over the whole back of this paper. That will allow me to easily die cut with the metal die, remove the liner to reveal the adhesive and then adhere this delicate die cut to my project. No messy glue all of my fingers and my pretty papers! LOL Here is a closer look....... Here is another card I created using the same supplies and the same glitter paper. I wasn't sure I really liked this card but I think it has grown on me. Either that or you just can't make a bad card with such a beautiful collection! LOL Here are the supplies I used: Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Butterfly Lullaby 6x6 paper pad Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Butterfly Lullaby Decorative Metal Die - With Love Crafter's Companion Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock Other supplies: Xyron Creative Station 18' x 5.5"; Core'dinations Glitter Cardstock; ribbon, 3d foam squares Continue reading

Hello friends! Today is April 5! Can you believe that? I know it kinda took me by surprise. One the fifth of the month, the Craft Hoarders have a blog hop to encourage you to use some supplies you have in your crafty hoard. If you are following along on the hop, you should have come from Marisa's blog. If you are just starting here on my blog, hop on over to Gloria Stengel's blog to start the hop from the beginning. This month we didn't have a theme but I did dig out some papers I have had for awhile to create my project. Here is my projects...... I created this card with matching little basket using supplies from Crafter's Companion. This patterned paper is not double-sided but it is a very big size - 11 x 17". So if I had wanted to create a larger basket, this would have been the perfect paper. The paper collection is called Springtime. It comes in package of 20 sheets so there are 10 designs with 2 sheets of each design. Like I said, the paper measures 11 x 17" so you get alot of paper! I used a sentiment from the Sentimentals EZ Mount Stamp Set - Verses. Plus I used my favorite die set, Chantilly Lace Stamping Frame from the Die'sire line. The little basket was made using the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers called Slatted Basket. I used the smallest measurements listed in the tutorial. The basket only meaures like 2" square....so it is really small! I used a new-to-me embossing folder called Decadent Rose Embossalicious 8x8 folder. It is really pretty! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have enjoyed this month's blog hop. There are all kinds of different projects along the hop that were made to inspire you to get out your hoarded supplies and make a project! Now it's time to hop on over to Wendy's blog. Continue reading
