HBD...


Happy Friday blog friends.. Today is a star fill day... well at least my card is. I am getting crafty with a few oldies but goodies. I believe these are retired from The Stamp Market. But hopefully you're inspired by all this fun color. 


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Cut a white cardstock A2 panel and ink blend The Stamp Market: Sunshine, Melon Orange, Coastal, Wisteria and Peony inks. These inks blend so well and just look at all that color...

Die cut The Stamp Market oh My Stars die on the ink blended panel. Adhere the panel to your card base using liquid glue.

Ink blend another A2 white cardstock panel using the same inks. Die cut The Stamp Market HBD die on the ink blended panel. Use your finger and rub some liquid glue on the lower half of the HBD letters and add some Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter. Make sure to let dry completely. 

Add some of those stars we die cut for the background and adhere them to the lower half of the HBD letters using liquid glue. 

Die cut the HBD die again two more times on white cardstock and adhere them to the back of the ink blended letters. Now add some foam tape to the back of the letters and adhere to your background.


Two dies and a little ink blending.... so simple. I always need a good birthday card and I am so happy with how this card came out. I might make it again with different colors. 

That is all for today.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Bella Blvd: Let's Scrapbook Father's Day Themed Cards...


Happy hello blog friends... Today I am sharing a little Father's Day inspiration using the new Bella Blvd Let's Scrapbook collection. Father's day is this Sunday, so you still have a couple of days to get out our crafty supplies and create something special. 


Create a card on white cardstock A2 size. 

Cut a piece of the Let's Scrapbook Photo Taker A2 size and adhere to your card panel using liquid glue.

Die cut a decorative frame on the Let's Scrapbook Paper Party backer and set aside. 

Cut a panel on white cardstock measuring 4 x 5 1/4 and die cut or machine cut Love You Dad in the center, but make sure your frame will fit around the sentiment without hiding it. 


Adhere your frame around the sentiment. 

Flip over your panel and add foam tape to the back and adhere to your card. 


Add one of those awesome Let's Scrapbook Puffy Stickers camera to the center of the O on the You. 

I also added a couple of the Trinkets Puffy Stickers (Blueberry) hearts to the sentiment to finish. 


Don't you just love how the designer paper shows through the sentiment? 


The theme today is Father's day but we are also enjoying all those cool cameras from the Let's Scrapbook collection. Father's day is a camera kind of day. Memories are always good. 


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Cut 4 strips measuring 3/4 inch of of the Let's Scrapbook Paper Party backer and Photo Taker backer (2 of each). Adhere these strips to the card base using liquid glue.  

Cut 3 strips measuring 1 inch of the Photo Taker paper. Make sure you get a full line of the camera when cutting. Add some foam tape to the back of the strips and adhere them to your card. As you can see I have lined them up between each of the seams. 


Machine or die cut a 3 inch circle on the Let's Scrapbook Clear Cuts Be Happy. 

Peel and stick the DAD Pennants (Family 2) frag to the acetate on the left side of the circle at an angle. 

Pick out the Heart from the Let's Scrapbook Ephemera Words and add some foam tape to the back and adhere to the circle on the upper right hand side of the circle. 

Finishing with one of those fun cameras from the Let's Scrapbook Puffy Stickers. 

Flip over your circle and add foam tape to the back, but only on the parts that it will not be seen on the front and adhere to the card. 


Thank you all for stopping by today and letting me inspire you to create with the Let's Scrapbook collection.

Just a Note...


Hello blog friends.. I have not created a card in almost a week. I had to find my crafty mojo and sometimes it just takes time to be inspired. I was cleaning out my desk and found this background that I created a long time ago. Not sure why I did not create with it back then but it was fun to find. So I finished it... 


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

On a white A2 panel stamp the Best Bud stamp set on the panel using black ink. Next line up the coordinating Best Bud stencils and ink blend all the flowers and leaves using colors that you love. I went with light/dark pink, light blue, green and yellow. 

Cut a strip of light blue designer paper or pain cardstock 1 1/2 inches and adhere to the center of the card. 

Cut a strip of striped designer paper 1 1/4 inch and adhere to the top and center of the blue cardstock. I am trying to pick colors that are close to the colors that I used on the flowers and leaves. 

Cut another strip of black and white designer paper 1/2 inch and adhere on the lower part of the second piece of the designer paper. See photo if this is confusing.. LOL 

Stamp the sentiment from the TE Mod Sentiments stamp set on white cardstock using black ink and trim down to 1/2 inch and adhere using foam tape to the center of all that designer paper we added. 

To finish I added more of that fun designer paper to the bottom. Cut a strip 1/2 inch and adhere to the bottom. (I know I went a little wild with the designer paper) 


That is it.... what do you think? Is it weird or do you like it? I know it is wild, but I really love it. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful and colorful day.

Using Up Your Scrap Designer Paper...


Happy Friday blog friends.. I hope you all have something fun planned this weekend. I have a few things planned but will share later next week. I have been a busy girl again... nothing related to crafty, but will share soon. 

Do you have one of these.....


This is my drawer of scrap paper. Isn't pretty?  I told you before I do not throw away good paper. I a can think of lots of ways to use this paper and today is one of the ways. 


Create card from light blue cardstock A2 size. I used Taylored Expressions Salt Water Taffy. 

Cut a piece of white cardstock A2 size and sprinkle a few colors that you love mixed with water onto the paper. Set aside and let dry completely. 

This next step is little long but bear with me. Pick out at least 20 scraps of designer paper and cut a strip to 1/4 inch of each of these designs. Adhere these strips to a piece of white cardstock measuring 4 1/2 x 11. Adhere them the short way and not the long way. So left to right, one on top of the other using liquid glue. I should have taken a photo of this... sorry. You do not need to fill the paper to the top just fill enough so we can die cut the Taylored Expressions Easy Strips 1/4 Stitched die.. We will die cut from top to bottom so it picks up some of every design that we adhered down. You should be able to die cut twice on this sheet. 

Now let's adhere 4 of the strips on the white cardstock with all the sprinkles of color. Let's adhere them using foam tape. Trim off access. Trim down your white cardstock following the lines of the strips, leaving a bit of white still showing. The top and bottom have about a 1/2 inch of the white left. 

Adhere this fun panel to your card base. Of course it will be at an angle as that is the way we cut the paper. 

Adhere the rest of your designer strips to a piece of white cardstock. make sure it is big enough to cut a circle out of. I die cut the medium circle from the Pinkfresh Studio Fold Edge Circle. When die cutting make sure to die cut the circle on half of the designer paper and the other half on the white. This will give you a cool circle. BUT we are not done yet. Cut the circle in half along the line where the designer paper is at. Adhere the designer paper circle to the top of the white part of the circle leaving a hint of the white showing (see picture). I know sounds complicated but it really is not. 

Adhere your circle to the card using liquid glue. See placement in photo. 

Add a small sentiment to the card that is stamped on white cardstock ink black ink. I cut a little angle on the sentiment to is matches the angles on the card. 


That is it for today... what do you think? Is it weird or do you think it is cool like I do? This should give you a good idea how my brain works... LOL 

Have a blessed weekend.

Prefect Moment...


Hello blog friends.. Can you believe it is already Wednesday? Today I am trying something new. I don't drift from card making but I have been inspired by my Bella Blvd team mates. They all are so amazing and the scrapbook pages they create are amazing. I thought on a smaller level. 

There are pictures of my favorite people.


I used the Bella Blvd Just Because collection. With all these amazing papers and Ephemera it is really easy to coordinating your projects. I used a few dies but you can also your cutting machine ie.. Circuit, Silhouette... etc. As a card maker you know I have a lot of fun dies to choose from. 


Each photo shows my small circle of family that I love dearly. The lower left is my grandparents, who are now in heaven. I grew up going to my grandparents house almost every single day. My grandma was a petite women who only wore skirts and had the sweetest smile. My grandfather loved her so much. I do miss them so much. 

The upper left is me and my mom. She is an amazing mom who raised two kids on her own and worked so hard. She taught me to be the best that I can be no matter what life brings you. 

The lower left is my amazing husband. He is a true gift from God. I am so blessed to have lived the most amazing life and still living it with him. We have the best fun and he is just pretty darn amazing.....


 Well what do you think? I loved creating them and it is always fun to create with love.

Love You Bees...


Happy Monday everyone. I hope you all had another fabulous weekend. I am starting out my week with a little Honey Bee Stamps, oldies but goodies. There are just some stamps you do not get rid of even if they are older sets. 


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Cut a panel on white cardstock A2 size and ink blend Lawn Fawn Merman, Lobster and Catherine Pooler Be Mine. When ink blending a full sheet I really love using the Ranger ink blending tool. You get full coverage and makes it easier to blend the inks together. Adhere your panel to your card using liquid glue. 

Sprinkle a little Copic Opaque mixed with water on your panel and let dry completely. 

Sprinkle a little black ink mixed with water on your panel and let dry completely. 

Stamp out these adorable images from the Honey Bee Stamps Mother's Day and BaBees stamp sets on white cardstock using black ink and color the images using your favorite medium. I had the coordinating dies for the BaBees but not the Mother's Day. So a little die cutting and a little fussy cutting and it is time to create the scene. I used foam tape on all the images. 

I added a little Lawn Fawn Prism Glitter with a glue pen here and there for a little sparkle.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Mother's Day stamp set directly onto the card. 

How about some more sparkle with Pinkfresh Studio Clear Drops Ice.

Finishing with a strips of designer black and white polka dots at the bottom of card. 


That is all for today. Bee's always bring me a smile.... I hope you also got a smile today. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Have a wonderful day full of smiles.
