Hello blog friends... I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Are you doing any after Thanksgiving shopping? I don't know if we will make it out. CA has a lot of people so there is usually people everywhere and it is a little overwhelming. 

Today I am sharing a card for Ink Blog Shop that I created using..

I started with the Zebra Print stencil, I know you cant see the design but if you look the yellow is part of the zebra print. I imagined it differently but still loved the way it came out. I then add the Pixel Grid right on top, that pattern you can defiantly see. 

Next I stamped the Sprinkled Hearts Background, using black ink. 

Now time for that cute cow... I stamped the cow and talking bubble on white cardstock and colored using Copic Sketch markers. I then did a little fussy cutting and added the images using foam adhesives. 

Nothing like a talking cow.... fun fact. Did you know that I grew up a farming town and I happen to love cows. I think they are a beautiful animal. 

That is all for today.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Have a wonderful day!

Best Year Yet...

Happy weekend blog friends... I have good news... The Pink & Main release is NOW AVAILABLE and we have inks people... YAY! and they are fabulous. Pink & Main released 7 beautiful colors and they ink up beautifully. 

Today's card was created using...

I started with using one of the 8.5 x 5.5 Adhesive Sheets and trimmed down to A2 size. I cut strips of the Night Sky Cardstock and The Park Cardstock, all different sizes. Using the adhesive sheets makes it easy to adhere to your card base.

I then took the new Basket 6x6 Embossing Folder and embossed the top of my card base. Such a cool design... don't you think?

For the sentiment I die cut one of the Scalloped Ovals on Middle School cardstock and one of the Layered Ovals on white cardstock. I stamped the Happy New Year sentiment on the white oval using the new Night Sky and The Park Premium Dye inks. I then added the white oval to the scalloped oval using foam adhesives and then added it to my card base. 

Finishing up with some of those pretty On The Town Gems.. I can't get enough of those gems. Pink & Main has such a great assortment of them.

The inks coordinating with the cardstock... so you might just need both. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Have an awesome day!

YAY! it is Friday! Are you all ready for your Thanksgiving dinner? We are doing a non-traditional Thanksgiving and eating homemade Chicken Pot Pie.. I know you might be saying, that's interesting BUT this recipe I have is amazing. I hope I don't mess it up. LOL

Well how about today's card? Today I am getting crafty with Taylored Expressions...

Card measures A2 size.

I started with this beautiful Modern Holly stencil and TE inks Oreo, Key Lime and Watermelon. This stencil comes with three stencils. They layer over each other perfectly. So easy to create with.

I then stamped out this lovely sentiment from the TE Words of Faith Christmas stamp set and them die cut it using one of the Pierced Tags Stacklets 2 dies. I added the tag to the card using foam adhesives. 

Finishing up with this May Arts Burlap sting that I tied into a bow and adhered to the tag using Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue. 

OH yeah... I also added a little white gel pen on the berries. 

Now we are done... I think I may reproduce this card a few more times and use them for Christmas. We need a some Words of Faith. 

That is all for today.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Let Your Light Shine...

Hello blog friends... today I am sharing a Ink Blot Shop card that I created using...
Nothing like a card telling you to shine on... we all need that encouragement every now and then.

Start with creating your card A2 size. I used a white base.

Next I adhered using Bearly Art Precision Glue a stripe of light pink to the top and on the bottom a darker pink cardstock. 

I then used the Giant Hey You stencil and added the ink using two different darker pinks. I was in a pink mood, just in case you did not already notice. To highlight the letters I used a gel pen and added a few of those famous white lines everyone is using these days.

I stamped out this fun image from the Shine On stamp set and colored the stars... yes, you got it in PINK. I trimmed around the image and added it to my card using foam adhesives. I also added some Ranger Stickles for a little shine.

To finish I added a few acrylic stars and I stamped out the sentiment and die cut using the Pink & Main Large Sentiment Strips dies.

That is all for today.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Be Merry...

Mixing it up today... Happy Monday blog friends. Today I have pulled out all my favorite Christmas dies and today I am mixing it up. When I say mixing it up, I mean dies from different companies. I know some crafters like to craft with the same company when creating... Not me, I love mixing it up.

Today I am all about the dies.. today's card was created using.
  • Memory Box: Whittle Rudolph (I have used this for a few years now)
  • Hello Bluebird: Be Merry
  • Sizzix: Boughs of Holly Thinlits
  • Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue

I started with adhering a piece of red and white designer paper to my card base.

Next I die cut all my pieces out. I started with this pretty Holly die and used Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue to adhere together and then on the card. 

For the sentiment I die cut the Be Merry 4 times and adhered them all together. This will give my sentiment dimension. Although I did that I still added some foam squares. 

Finishing up with this adorable Rudolph. 

SO SIMPLE... and I only used dies. I say never get rid of dies. They are always handy.

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day!
