Santa Fun...


Happy Saturday blog friends. Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE.  I am sharing a card that I created using P&M Mugs and Kisses stamp and coordinating dies, Super Fine Glitter Northern Lights, Emerald and Silver Bells, Sparkle Gems, 8.5x5.5 Adhesive Sheets and Diagonal Cover Dies.

I started with adding the Adhesives Sheet to my card base and carefully peeling a strip at a time so I can add the Super Fine Glitter, rotating colors. I set that aside while I stamped out my Santa mug from the Mugs and Kisses stamp set and colored with Copic Sketch markers, then die cutting using the coordinating dies. I added the colored image to my card using foam adhesives, for a little dimension.

I then die cut the Diagonal Cover die and only added the frame to my card base using EZ Squeeze Craft Glue. I then thought I need a little more bling so I added a few of the Sparkle Gems also using EZ Squeeze Craft Glue.

I did not stop there with the sparkle I also added a little Ranger Stickles to the candy cane and the straw. Now my card is all sparkled out.

That is all for today.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thankful.... Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Blog Friends.... I hope you all have a wonderful celebration with your families and get to eat lots of yummy turkey. I have a small family so it is just three of us but we are planning a meal for like 15 people. LOL I am sure we will be sick of turkey after the weekend.

Today I was in the spirit of the holiday so I created this card using Lawn Fawn: Gnome Sweet Gnome, Happy Feast, Magic Iris Fall Leaves, Into the Woods, Sweater Weather and Pink Lemonade paper pads and MFT Sweater Weather on Safari. I am mixing it all up today.

I adhered the designer paper to my card base and then starting die cutting the Magic Iris Leaves dies to create this cute leave wreath. I then stamped these cute images and colored with Copic Sketch markers and fussy cut around and adhered to my card. Finishing up with stamping the sentiment direction on the card. 

So simple just a little bit of die cutting and adhering onto the card. Oh yeah, I used some foam tape here and there for a little dimension. 

I also wanted to say that I am so thankful for my crafty blog friends. I appreciate you all so much. I know that I don't have much readers anymore but for those who have stuck with me over the years.... you are THE BEST!

Have a blessed day!

Let it Snow...

Happy Tuesday.... Today I am getting crafty with a set that a sweet dear friend sent me. It is special to have blog friends that you have known for years. I know she will read this so Thank you L. You are a gem. 

This card was created using Lawn Fawn: Snow Globe Scenes stamp/die set. I also used lawn Fawn: Snow Day Remix, Let It Shine petite paper packs, Taylored Expressions Mini Slim card base and Pink & Main: Sparkle Gems. 

I first die cut the globe and the snowy background then stamped these two little scenes and colored with Copic Sketch markers. I die cut these little scenes out... yes die cut.. yippee. I love the coordinating dies. I pieced them all together and added them to my card. 

I then stamped the sentiment and die cut this little shape out, then adhered to the globe. For a little sparkle I added some P&M Sparkle Gems and also used some Liquid Appliqué to give the snow a little 3d affect. 

That is it... another fun winter card. I still have lots of Christmas card ideas so stay tuned for more holiday fun. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Have an awesome Tuesday!

Happy Monday blog friends. I created this card last week but forgot to share it on my blog. Dont know what I was thinking. LOL

This card was created using Reverse Confetti NEW: Polar Party stamp set, Retro Holiday stamp set and Open Drop Cover Panel die. 

The background is one of my handy dandy Alcohol inks background that I die cut the Open Drop Cover Panel die on. I then stamped out these adorable images and colored using Copic Sketch markers. I had to do a little fussy cutting because I did not buy the coordinating dies. But they are available for purchase I just did not buy them. LOL I added some of the images using foam adhesives for a little dimension and finished up with stamping this sentiment, trimming around it and adhering it to my card. 

Another fun Holiday card and when I seen the Reverse Confetti release I just had to have it. 

I am also entering this card in the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash challenge. Theme is Holiday/Winter.

That is all for today.

Thank you for stopping by.

Have an awesome Monday full of smiles.

This set is full of cute snowman and fun sentiments, perfect for those fun holiday cards you are planning on making.

Very Merry Christmas...

Happy Monday blog friends. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and getting ready for this new week. I am back on the Christmas card kick and with this new Joanns Hero Arts exclusive make Yourself at Home card kit, sure does make for easy card making.  This kit is only available at JoAnn's. 

I stamped the background onto my card base as I rotated the colors. This kit comes with 4 ink mini pads and you are seeing all the colors on this one card. 

I then stamped out the trees and die cut using the coordinating die which is also included in this kit. This kit comes with a rubber background stamp and a clear stamp set. Both is what you see on my card today.

Before adding the sentiment I sprinkled a little Copic Opaque, this is not in the kit.

I do not normally buy kits but when I seen this one I knew I just had to have it. It also comes with embossing powder, glitter and colored card-stock (red and green). So many more card to create using this kit. 

That is all for today.

I might ink up another using this kit and share tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a wonderful Monday! 

Snowman Christmas...

YAY! I had my first design team post for I am so blessed to be one of the newest design team members. 
Today I am getting crafty with...

I first die cut all the shapes needed to create my card. I used miscellaneous pieces of colored card-stock. These dies are small so if you have scrap pieces of colored card-stock, they work perfectly.

Time to put these cuties together. I used Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue to adhere these snowmen together. Lots of little parts to glue so the fine tip helps in these small areas.

When I got to the scarf I used 3L Scrapbook Adhesives 3D foam strips. This gives my scarfs a little dimension.

Now to create this background. I cut my card to be A2 in size and stenciled directly onto the card base. I used the new Honey Bee Stamps Stencil Crystal Kaleidoscope with Ranger Ink Tim Holtz: Distress Oxide Ink Pads Kitsch Flamingo and Salvaged Patina with Ranger Ink: Mini Ink Blending Tool.

Time to put the card together. I added the snowmen using 3L Scrapbook Adhesives 3D foam strips so that my card would have a little more dimension.

Finishing up with stamping this Lawn Fawn: Toboggan Together stamp set, Merry Christmas sentiment with Tsukineko Memento Full Size Die Inkpad Tuxedo Black.

YAY! for cute snowmen.

Thank you for stopping by.
Have an awesome day full of smiles.

Sending Cheer...

 Happy Saturday. Today is my Pink & Main posting day and I am on the P&M Blog HERE. I am sharing a card created using P&M: Sending Cheer stamp set, Pastel Pearls, Rainbow Fun stencil and Ergonomic Blending Brush.

Using my very handy P&M Ergonomic Blending Brush and Ranger Oxide inks with the new Rainbow Fun stencil, I created this fun and colorful background. You could use so many fun blends of color with this cool stencil. Go wild with color.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Sending Cheer stamp set directly onto my stenciled background. I love how you can see the rainbow through the sentiment.

Finishing up with a few of the Pastel Pearls. These little pearls finish the card and give it some shine. They glue perfectly with the P&M EZ Squeeze Craft Glue.

You can see more P&M inspiration on the P&M blog HERE.

Have a wonderful weekend.
