Taylored Expressions: Merry Blooms Cardmaking Kit....

 July is the time to start those Christmas cards.

Taylored Expressions just released the Merry Blooms Cardmaking Kit

Perfect timing... right?


I love cardmaking kits that make cardmaking so easy. I started out with the Merry Blooms stamp, stencil, clear combo. I used TE premium inks Granny Smith and Lime Zest for the leaves. I kind of just stamped the ink here and there and mixed it up for a little contrast. Now time to stencil these gorgeous flowers. I used TE premium inks Watermelon and Cupcake. With the clear set I stamped the details of the flower with Watermelon and Dijon for the center. 

Finishing up with this beautiful scripted sentiment from the Joyful clear stamp set and die cut using the coordinating dies. 

Dont forget about those pretty envelopes and seals included in the kit.

I went a little non-traditional on this one. I first created this background by cutting strips of TE Premium Sweet Basil and Salt Water Taffy card-stock and adhering them to my card base. For fun I sprinkled a little Copic Opaque. 

Next I die cut these Perfect Poinsettia dies on some of TE Pink Champagne card-stock and stamped the details from the Merry Blooms clear set. I added them to my card base using foam adhesives for a little dimension. I trimmed the Poinsettia's  around the edges. 

Finishing up with cutting a wider strip of Salt Water Taffy and stamping this lovely sentiment. I also added it to the card using foam adhesives. 

Thanks for stopping by... Have a wonderful day!

Thinking of You...


Happy Monday everyone. Today I am enjoying the company of my mom. She came to visit from CO. It is always a good day when moms around... right!

Today I am sharing a card that I created using Brutus Monroe: Homegrown Happiness Inspiration Box

I started with stamping out the Homegrown Happiness stamps on my card base. In the negative space I colored in the space using Copic Sketch markers. I kept it simple. Finishing up with stamping this sentiment on some of the card-stock included in the box. I adhered it flat using liquid glue. 

I hope you all have a great week. I had the best weekend with my mom we went to the Fair, which I am so happy to see that is back for us all to enjoy. I love me a good Fair. Reminds me of when I was small. 

That is all for today.

Thanks for stopping by.

Tickled Pink...


 YAY! for Saturday. Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I am getting crafty with Pink & Main Stand Tall stamp and coordinating die set and Circle Spotlights 1 stencil. We all love a cute Flamingo set.... right?


I first used the Circle Spotlights 1 stencil with various inks to create this colorful background. I stamped this adorable flamingo from the Stand Tall stamp set and die cut using the coordinating dies. I added the colored flamingo to my card base using foam adhesives for a little dimension. Finishing up with this sentiment also from the Stand Tall stamp set.

A very simple card with a cute message.... a must have set for sure!

That is all for today. I am off to enjoy my weekend with my mom. She is here from CO. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Sweetest Thing...


I am counting the days down until Friday because my mom is coming to town. I have not seen her in two years so you can image my excitement. Thanks to covid I am sure a lot of you have not seen your loved ones. I am so grateful that we are starting to get back to normal. I pray that it stays on track. No one should not go two years to see their parents. 

Today I am sharing a card that I created using Taylored Expressions: Tutti Frutti stamp and coordinating dies, Bokeh Stencil, TE glitter card-stock, Simple Strips Thanks, Simple Strips Asymmetrical die, Bitty Blender Brushes and TE Premium inks Oreo, Pineapple, Guava, Pink Champagne, Cupcake and Candy Corn

I started with using the Bokeh Stencil with the Bitty Blender Brushes and TE Premium inks Pineapple, Guava, Pink Champagne, Cupcake and Candy Corn. I also sprinkled a little Copic Opaque. I set the background aside while I stamp and color the Tutti Frutti images. I colored with Copic Sketch markers and then die cut with the coordinating dies. 

Before adding the images to my card base I cut some of TE silver card-stock and added it to the sides for a little shine. Then I die cut one of the Mini Slim Trifold Circle dies on some of TE Vellum and added it to my card. 

I adhered the watermelon and strawberry to my card using liquid glue and then added the pineapple using foam adhesives. Finishing up with this cool sentiment from Simple Strips Thanks. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Have an awesome Wednesday!

Taylored Expressions: Designer Dangles Release...

 YAY! it is time for another Taylored Expressions Designer Dangles Release.
If you like to create your own earrings you are going to love this new additions to the TE Designer Dangles collection. 


I love the new Blue Blossoms leather that you see here with the new Knock On Wood On Point Frames. These earrings are so easy to create. You can buy the Designer Dangles On Point dies to die cut the leather design that you want for your earrings. With the Slim Chain Bent Nose Pliers I added the jump rings and the earring wires. It is that easy and totally fun.

With this set I just used the Custom Craft Leather: Farmhouse Flowers and Trendy Twigs with the new In The Round and On Point Designer Dangles dies. The dies also cut the hole for the jump rings so there is no cutting involved. Repeat the process with the Slim Chain Bent Nose Pliers to added the jump rings and the earring wires. 

I used the custom design Trendy Twigs leather with the In The Round and On Point Designer Dangles dies. I added the half circle on the front of the Knock on Wood In The Round using Bearly Art Precision glue. Make sure not to over glue so the glue does not come out the sides. When adding the jump rings I added the On Point leather to the back of the In The Round. I just used the jump ring to add it, no glue. Finishing up with the earring wires. 

So easy and so fun to create..... time for you to give it a try. 

Make sure to check out the entire release and the design team projects for more inspiration.


Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great Tuesday!

You're Wonderful...


Happy Saturday everyone. today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE.  I am sharing some summer fun with the June released Sunkissed stamp and coordinating die set and Holographic Set 1 card-stock.


I created a simple background with Oxide inks on a piece of white card-stock. I stamped outed these fun Sunkissed images and colored with Copic Sketch markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I wanted a little shine so I added some Glossy Accents to the lenses and set a side to dry completely.

I added these cool glasses to my card using foam adhesives for a little dimension. Finishing up with stamping this fun sentiment from the Sunkissed stamp set on a strips of white card-stock and trimming down. I wanted shine behind my sentiment so I cut a strip of the cool Holographic card-stock and adhered to my card base.

That is all that I have for you today. I hope that you all have the most awesome weekend. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Remember to smile...

You Are Mermazing...


Happy July blog friends... Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I am sharing a card that I created using Pink & Main: Be A Mermaid stamp and coordinating die set, Unicorn Pearls, Fancy Tag Dies, Catch A Wave Embossing Folder and Spring Glitter Paper. Lots of Pink & Main on one card. This was fun to create.


I blended Distress Oxide inks on a plain piece of card-stock and used the Catch A Wave Embossing Folder on it then die cut one of the Tags from the Fancy Tag die set. Then I die cut the larger of the tags on some of Pink & Main Spring Glitter Paper collection. I adhered the two together and set aside.

For my background I used the Catch A Wave Embossing Folder again on a plain piece of white card-stock and sprinkled a bit of the oxide inks right on top and set aside to let dry. Now time to stamp out the images from the Be A Mermaid stamp set. I colored the images with Copic Sketch markers and die cut with the coordinating die set. Now time to put that card together.

I used some foam adhesives for a little dimension here and there. Oh yeah, let's not forget that sentiment. I stamped it on white card-stock and die cut using the banner from the Fancy Tag die set.


Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend.
Stay safe and live life to its fullest.

You Are The Best...


Well I could not resist some of the newly released Lawn Fawn. I just got it in the mail and well could not wait to ink up this freebie stamp set. You had to spend $60 to get it and well that was not hard. LOL 

I used the new Magic Iris Tropical Leaves, Watercolor Wishes paper pack and Grrr-ific Friend stamp set. 


The background was created using Ranger Oxide inks Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and Tea Dye with water. Really simple to create colorful backgrounds with Oxide inks. I die cut the Tropical Leaves three times, twice on the Watercolor Wishes and once on white card-stock. 

The images are stamped out with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers. I had to do a little fussy cutting because there is no matching dies for this set yet. With the sentiment I used white and kraft card-stock. I just overlapped them for something different. I used foam tape on the images and the sentiment for a little dimension.

There you go a little Lawn Fawn creativity and it was fun to create. I have a few other sets so I hope to get crafty with those soon. 

That is all for today.
I appreciate you stopping by.

Have a fantastic fun and safe weekend.
