Hello friends. Hope your week is going well so far. Never fear it's Wednesday, so happy hump day! Today I have a fairly simple project to share with you using the Blushing Rose Collection from Heartfelt Creations. I saw Jennifer McGuire use this technique a few weeks ago and I loved it.

Hello friends. Happy Spring! I was so glad to see the date on the calendar meant that it was the first day of Spring. Even though the weather here in Missouri can be so chaotic, I am confident that the worst is behind us....or I just jinxed it all! LOL Here is a card I created using the February Simon Says Stamp Monthly Kit. I love the images and the colors of this kit. So much fun to create and that is really the bottom line, isn't it? I think we all create to have fun and relieve the stress of daily life. So I found a card sketch on Pinterest and made a couple of cards using the cute supplies from the kit. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Designs. The matching stickers were included in the kit along with the pink cardstock. I love the color combo, don't you ? Here is another card using the same supplies, I just used a different stamp from the set that was included in the kit. I also used a new favorite set of dies from Simon Says Stamp. It's called Scallop Stitches and it includes three different edge dies. Love it! The stamp set is called Coffee and Tea set. It pairs perfectly with the Doodlebug Designs 6x6 paper pad called Cream & Sugar. So far there hasn't been a Doodlebug Designs paper pad that I don't love.....it's an issue that's for sure! LOL I am actually mailing these cards out to some friends. I know, it's a miracle. I have envelopes and stamps at the same time! I hope they love the cards and they bring a smile the their faces. Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow I have a Heartfelt Creations project to share. Continue reading

Hello friends! If you have been reading my blog for the last couple of months, you could probably tell I have been in a bit of a creative rut. So I decided to do somethings to get myself out of it. I signed up for the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month. I started surfing youtube watching videos of my favorite stampers to see what products they were using. So I found a couple of new-to-me stamp companies that I am really loving lately! The first one is Wplus9.....I love the many different flower images they have. Here is a card I created using a new stamp set from Wplus9 called Kind Soul ..... I stamped the image along the bottom of a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock using Timber Brown Staz-on. Using my Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers, I colored the images. I added a bit of super light blue behind the flowers and then I cut along the bottom of the stamped piece. I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock using embossing ink and gold embossing powder. After I heat set the image, I cut it out. This was actually a pretty simple card to make except for the coloring time. Of course, I have been enjoying the time it takes to color images as it really relaxes me! You should try it! Here are a list of the supplies - * notes affiliate links: *Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush Pens *Timber Brown Staz-on ink pad Kind Soul Stamp set - WPlus9 - I purchased this set from Simon Says Stamp *Nuvo Classic Gold Embossing Powder *embossing heat tool *Tim Holtz 5" Snips Kraft, Pink Cardstock Bristol Smooth Paper seam binding, twine - Really Reasonable Ribbon button Continue reading

Hello friends! Have you gotten bit by the foiling bug? If you are like me, probably not. It's kinda an expensive bug! Special machines and other supplies can really add up to some serious money if you want to really foil your projects. Well, I got a package from Crafter's Companion the other day. Included in the package was the new Foil Transfers that Sara Davies demonstrated on HSN a few weeks ago. They are super simple to use, require no special tools and are really affordable! Here is a project I created using these new foil transfers! These foil transfer are used just like rub-ons. You choose the transfer you want, cut it out and remove the plastic backing. Place the transfer onto the paper and rub with a Popsicle stick. After rubbing the transfer onto the cardstock, place a piece of the foil over it and lightly rub again. You will slowly see the foil start to stick to the transfer. Ta Da! There are two foil transfer sets and they include a couple of sheets of sentiments plus all kinds of different swirls and flourishes. Here is a closer look at the project. The foil transfers are the sentiment and the butterfly!! You can purchase the foil transfers from Crafter's Companion on HSN right now (link down below) but I am sure they will be on the Crafter's Companion website in a few short weeks. Supplies Used: Die'sire Create-a-Card Nicole Die Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Rustic Cottage 6x6 paper pad Foil Transfer Set 1 and 2 - only available on HSN for now.

See what I mean? The 6x6 paper pad is full of beautiful papers that are all different vintage, shabby colors. Plus the dies and stamps are all wonderful! I die cut the window from some vanilla cardstock and then using some spray adhesive, I adhered the window on a piece of the patterned paper that had a bit of music on it. I cut this out with my scissors and added the hearts that I die cut from felt. I used a mixed media die set and my Gemini to cut the felt and it was so easy! The sentiment and banners are from the same set. The stamps and 2 banner dies come in one set! Plus the ribbon is from the Rustic Cottage collection, too! Along the bottom of the ribbon I used a border embossing folder and then used a sponge and distress ink to highlight the embossing. This is a super fun collection!

Hello friends! You know sometimes you get stuck in a rut......for me it's a creative rut lately. I have been uninspired lately and decided to change that by getting some different stamp images that require a different style. Plus I checked out the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers and found a fantastic sketch! I have been purchasing the Simon Says Stamp Monthly kit for a few months. Last months hasn't been touched yet and I got this month's just a few days ago. So I made myself sit down at my crafty table to create something fun with kit I just got and the sketch challenge. Be sure to leave a comment answering my question below! You could receive this fun card! Here is what came in the kit..... There are 3 small pots of Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Aquamarine, Pure Platinum and Peony Pink. Plus a small egg-shaped stencil, palette knife, mini mister, sponge, cardstock and some Doodlebug 6x6 patterned paper. Plus the cutest stamp set! You can check out the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge for this week HERE. Here is what I created..... Don't you just love that little chickie? Plus the sentiment is awesome! I stamped and masked the eggs then colored them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens. I stamped the chickie on the card and then stamp him again on a scrap piece of cardstock. I fussy cut out the top of the chickie after I colored him and popped him up on some 3d foam squares. I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops (not included in the kit) at the top and bottom corners plus I used a banner punch on the sentiment panels. I also punched out the smaller sentiment using a circle punch. I love how this turned out and can't wait to find someone to send this cute card! What do you do when you get in a creative rut? If I get 20 comments, I will pick a comment and send that person this cute card! So please tell me what you do when you are in a creative rut. I would love to find out! Thanks for stopping by today!!

Hello friends. Today Heartfelt Creations has a new release called Flowering Dogwood. But before I show you my first project using this beautiful collection, I would like to ask for your help. Heartfelt Creations just announced their 2017 Design Team Call. Not only do they want new designers but they keep some of the current design team members on the new team. I would really appreciate it if you would go and vote for me and your other favorite designers to stay on the new team. Here is a link to vote - http://hcgo.co/DesignTeamVote2017. I absolutely love working with Heartfelt Creations and hope you love my projects too! Now it's time to introduce you to the Flowering Dogwood Collection. It's time to usher in the spring season with the new Flowering Dogwood Collection! Immerse yourself in this newest springtime assembling of designer papers, divinely detailed cling stamps and coordinating dies steeped with beautiful meanings and symbolism perfect for the Easter Season! The dogwood tree is surrounded by a mesmerizing legend within the Christian faith…once the size of a mighty oak tree it was chosen to be used to construct the cross on which Jesus was to be crucified. The tree became unhappy with its purpose and would never again grow large enough to ever build another cross. Its branches would become narrow and crooked and no longer suitable for construction. The delicate dogwood flower itself is a wonderful symbol of the Easter season…four petals that resemble the shape of a cross, the center laid as a crown of thorns, at the tip of each petal an indent resembling nail punctures, and a reddish hue around those indents resembling the blood of Jesus. Soft and pastel in coloring, this newest paper collection reveals beautiful springtime shades of pinks, peaches, and greens which set stunning backdrops for scripted lettering and graceful swirls, while darker hints of blues and blacks bring out the gorgeous detail and coloring of the showy dogwood florals. Bountiful blossom filled branches, peaceful white doves and hillside chapels are just a few of the beautiful illustrations found within the cling stamp sets! Assemble the perfect dimensional dogwood flower using the varying sized petals within the Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamps Set and die cut using the coordinating dies. The ideal collection to send out springtime and Easter wishes to friends and family! Here is my project...... Products Used Designer Dries... Continue reading

Hello friends! Hope you had a good weekend! It time to think of love and chocolate. Well what I mean is it's almost time for Valentine's Day. So with that in mind, I created this fun card using the 7103N Button Heart stamp from Pink Ink Stamps. I just love this image! This card measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". To begin, I stamped the image onto white cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink pad. Using my patterned paper as a guide, I picked out the markers and cardstock for this card. This 6x6 patterned paper is from Pebbles and it's called My Funny Valentine. For the red cardstock panel, I used the Scallop Stitches wafer dies from Simon Says Stamp to add that stitched scalloped detail. I colored the image using my new Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens. These are the colors I used. Here is a close-up of the image. I fussy cut around the heart and then once I adhered it into place, I added some Crystal Stickles. The sentiment die is from the Queen & Co Heart Throb Kit. I think it turned out super cute! You can find this Button Heart stamp and all of the Pink Ink Stamps at Ellen Hutson.com. I have included links to the products I used for this card just for your information. These are not affiliate links. Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends. One card I can never have enough of is a birthday card. It seems like once a week or so sometimes! So the other day, I sat down at my crafty table and started making some birthday cards. Some of them are girly and some of the are more manly. This card I am showing you today is definitely girly and it was alot of fun to create! So I started this card by stamping and watercoloring some really cute flower images from the Sheena line at Crafter's Companion. I got these stamps before Christmas and didn't know how I was going to use them. I think they worked perfect for this card! I stamped them onto watercolor paper using brown Staz-on ink pad. Then I watercolored them using my Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers. I scribbled the marker onto my craft mat and used a watercolor brush to color these flowers. Once they were dry, I fussy cut them out. There was not a leaf image in this set, so I just colored one of the flowers green and used it as a leaf. The birthday sentiment is from Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Just For Men -Rock Star stamp set. I stamped it onto the strip of cardstock using embossing ink and sprinkled on some white embossing powder. After I heat set it, I cut the edge into a banner. I used some 3d foam squares to pop up the sentiment. The white panel was embossed using the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Floral Delight - Floral Swirls 6x6 embossing folder. I love how simple the card turned out. I am hoping that it won't require too much extra postage! Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello friends! Today I have a project to share with you that uses some Crafter's Companion Die'sire Edge'ables dies. These dies are intricate and allow you to use them on the edge of a fold or edge of the paper for a "pop-up" style. Or you can cut out the die cut for a different look. Here is a card I created using two Die'sire Edge'ables that will be on HSN February 6. If you watch the Crafter's Companion spots you might even see my creation! As you can see, I used two of the Die'sire Edge'ables in two different ways. I used the Die'sire Edge'ables Classic Chandelier die on the top edge of the white panel of cardstock. Like I said these dies are really beautiful and intricate! I added some small pearls to the chandelier to give it alittle something! I also used the Die'sire Edge'ables Bride and Groom die. Instead of cutting it at the edge of the cardstock/fold, I die cut it from some Matt Mirror Cardstock and hand cut along the bottom of the die cut. I adhered the die cut onto some printed vellum. I also used the little accents dies from the Die'sire Edge'ables Classic Chandelier die on the edges of the white panel, too! Here is a closer look......... This card measures 5 x 7". I love how it turned out!

Hello friends! Well, I am such a slacker. I have been working on creative projects but I haven't been able to post any of them. Sorry for that and I hope that I will be back to sharing regularly again starting this week! Here is my Heartfelt Creations project from last week. I can't believe I forgot to post it! Here is another look with the card open........ Products Used Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 159723 Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottles, 352854 Memento Dye Ink Pad - Pistachio, TSMP706 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, HCST1-401 Fleur Border Basics Die, HCD1-7120 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Foldout Cards-White, HCCF1-443-2 Wildwood Florals Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3769 Wildwood Florals Die, HCD1-7125 Wildwood Cottage Paper Collection, HCDP1-274 Instructions Other Products: White cardstock; Victorian Velvet Distress Ink Pad; Nuvo Pink Champagne Glitter Drops; Scor-tape; 3d foam squares Watch this video https://youtu.be/wxX94X84kUo for tips on using foldout cards, shadowbox and the border basics dies. Watch this video https://youtu.be/rdsIOVMXjIQ to learn how to create flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Instructions: This foldout card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". To begin, cover all panels with patterned paper from the collection. Use the Simple Fleur die to cut the patterned paper to fit this card. Cut some edges for the card using the Eyelet Fleur Die out of white cardstock. Adhere the Eyelet Fleur Die strips onto the top of each panel and then adhere the patterned paper panels into place. Fussy cut the Fairies, birdhouse and sentiments from the paper collection. Adhere them into place using 3d foam squares. Adhere the second and third panel together using scor-tape. That way your card will open up like a book. Stamp the flower images onto white cardstock using Victorian Velvet ink and die cut with matching dies. Stamp the leaves onto green patterned paper using pistachio ink and die cut with matching dies. Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit to shape the flowers and leaves. Adhere them into place as shown. Adhere the sentiments into place. Once everything is adhered into place and the card is finished, apply the Nuvo Glitter drops and allow to dry. I had to do this in stages since some of the flowers are inside the card. I added the drops to the flowers I could see when the card was completely closed and allowed them to dry. Then I opened the card and... Continue reading

Hello friends! This month, I want to start something new. Recently, I was introduced to the Simon Says Stamp Monthly kit by my good friend, Heidi Blankenship. Well, I am going to confess that Simon Says Stamp is fast becoming one of my go-to stores to purchase my favorite goodies. Being on design teams is so much fun but it can be alot of work. Like right now I have been busy creating things for the CHA - Creativation show in Phoenix next week. So to help my creativity, I took a few minutes to make something that is just for me or just for fun! So my goal is to post one or two projects a week that I make just for fun. I was hoping to do it on Friday......you know, Just For Fun Friday? But life got in the way as I was busy getting the house ready for a big ice storm that was coming in. We really did get quite a bit of ice so far.....so that trip to the store for toilet paper was a good idea! LOL Here are a couple of cards that I created Just For Fun! I used the Hey Love Stamp set with matching die and the Stacked Hearts die from Simon Says Stamp to create these cards! For this card, I used some Blushing Bride cardstock from Stampin' Up! to die cut the Stacked Hearts die and the background for the "love". I die cut the detail "love" using a scrap of glitter paper I had in my stash. For this card, I used the Scalloped Stitches edge dies for around the edge of the white layer. I added another Stacked Hearts die cut from some of the Blushing Bride paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Hey Love stamp set and using the "LOVE" dies again. I also tried out some spray adhesive........it worked well for the delicate Stacked Hearts die cut but I am not too sure about the smell! So what have you been working on just for fun? I will be trying to share something fun each week. I have to keep this fun or it's just a job......ya know? Thanks for stopping by! Continue reading
