Silent Night...

Happy Monday everyone... today I am on the Evelin T Designs blog HERE and I am getting crafty with the newly released Be Merry and Pup-tastic stamp sets. It is time to get all those Christmas cards made so you can mail them out and Evelin T Designs has the cutest Holiday stamps to create with.

So I did a little masking with these stamps. I wanted to add the hedgehogs to this sign group of cuties. I did all the stamping and masking first on my card base then decided to create a fun stenciled background with Ranger oxide inks. The images are colored with Copic sketch markers. I also added some Copic opaque for the snow affect and finishing up with stamping the sentiments and notes. I thought I was missing something so I added this fun striped strip below. 

Make sure to follow Evelin T Designs for all the upcoming release and inspiration. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Have an awesome day!

Card Set...

YAY, today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE. I am sharing a little sneak peek of the next release. I created this card using the coming soon... Sunburst die, Spotlight Sayings stamp set and Thankful paper pad. Are you getting exciting? The entire release is awesome.... just sayin!

I just had to mix up all these fun patterns in the new Thankful paper pad to create these backgrounds. No waste of paper today I used about 90% of it mixing and matching. How cool are those designs? I cut out 4 strips of white car-stock and just die cut the circle so I can stamp out these fun new sentiments from the Spotlight Sayings stamp set (coming soon). I know I am teasing you... I used foam tape to adhere the sentiments so I had a little dimension on my card. 

That was it.. lots of glue and a bit of stamping. Totally simple and totally fun to mix all these patterns together. Make sure to follow Pink & Main for all the up coming release.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have an awesome Friday!

So Sweet...

Well a happy hello to you all. Can you believe it is already the 17th of November? Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I am sure most of you have lots of fun plans but my husband and I are loners so we don't do the turkey thing anymore. It is just way too much food so we usually just cook a steak or go and grab something. Funny how when you get older and don't have children how things change. No complaints here though.. life is good!

Today I am sharing a card that I created for Taylored Expressions. This could be a birthday or a thank you card. The supply list is below...

This is a mini slim card and I die cut the Petite Scallop Mini Slim on some Cookie Monster TE card-stock. I used the Mini Slim Masking Stencil to create those fun little shadow boxes in the middle and sprinkled a little Copic opaque. The images are colored with Copic sketch markers and die cut with the coordinating die set. I used foam tape to give the images some dimension. The sentiment is stamped directly onto the card.

Then I stamped out this gorgeous images and colored with Copic sketch markers and die cut with the coordinating die set. I added a little white gel pen action here and there.

Grateful For You...

Happy Thursday everyone. I hope you all are enjoying your week. Today I am sharing a card that I created using Taylored Expressions. (supply list below) ▼

I was in the mood for a soft but sweet looking card so this is what I created. 

I am in love with the Seasonal Sprig stamp and die set I think you use this anytime of year just change up your colors to match your season/theme of your card. I used the TE Blender Brushes with TE Cupcake, Pineapple and Peaches & Cream inks to create this background with the Pretty Petals Stencil. Got to love stencils. 

I stamped out the Seasonal Sprig and with the coordinating stencils I added my ink using the TE Blender Brushes again. They are easy to use in large and small spaces. Then I die cut using the coordinating Seasonal Sprig die set. Finishing up with stamping out this beautiful sentiment from the Handlettered Thanksgiving stamp set and die cutting with the coordinating die set. 

Another simple but fun card.

That is all for today.

Coffee Love...

Happy Wednesday everyone. Today I am linking up to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall/Winter blog hop. I missed the last one and I did not want to miss this one. Plus I get to make a fun coffee themed card. I really should make more. LOL

This card was created using lots of Lawn Fawn... Thanks a Latte stamp and die set, Snow Bunnies stamp set, A Birdie Told Me stamp set, Quilted Backdrop die and Let it Shine paper pad. I am mixing it all up today. That is easy to do with LF stamps and dies. 

Do you see the marshmallows and whip cream have a fun texture to them? I used some Liquid Appliqué. The images are colored with Copic sketch markers and I used some foam tape to give a little dimension here and there. I also used some vellum for the background and added strip of silver glitter card-stock. 

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

Most items not available to purchase separately. Limited quantity available.

Today I am sharing with you the months of July thru December. It was so fun creating my very own calendar to my liking. This kits comes with 12 months, 12 stencils, Group Text Months and Group Text Die. The possibilities are endless when designing each month. 

First up with July and the stencil designed for this month is stars. BUT you can use any of the stencils with each month or mix it all up. I used two TE inks with the star stencil and added the On the block Happy die. I also used the stencil on the Happy sentiment. I heat embossed the months on some of TE colored card-stock and die cut with the coordinating die set. (supply list below)

I used two of the stencils on the month of August and added this cutie from the Floaties stamp set that I colored with Copic sketch markers and die cut with the coordinating die set. 

I used two of TE inks with this stencil for the month of September. You could go wild with color. I also added this sweet image from the  Max & Millie stamp set, colored with Copic sketch makers and die cut with the coordinating die set. You can add special markers for the days that you know are special with the stamp set that is included in the set. Oh yeah I also added a strip of the gorgeous TE silver glitter card-stock. We need a little shine here and there.... right?

Spooky time... how about these fun bats? This stencil is so fun and goes perfect with the TE Pick of the Patch Background. I stamped out this fun background and die cut a few of the pumpkins with the coordinating die set. I heat embossed the month on some TE Oreo card-stock and die cut with the coordinating die set. 

The leaves are falling... this stencil is so pretty with all the leaves that fill this month. I used a few of TE inks to fall this month out. I thought that Big Grumpy was perfect for this month. I used the stencil in the sign that he is holding and added the month in the middle. I marked up the special days of the month using the stamp set included in the set but also added the turkey using the Tag Team Thanksgiving set. 

My favorite time of the year. I used two of the stencils included in this kit and added this cutie from the Fluffy Friends stamp set and die cut with the coordinating die set. I also heat embossed the month on more of TE pretty card-stock. 

I bet you cant wait to get your hands on this fun kit..

To Be Jolly...

YAY, it is Friday and the weather here is changing. I had to wear sweats this morning to stay warm. They say we might get some rain this weekend. I love the changing weather BUT I do not like all the leaves FROM MY NEIGHBORS tree falling in my yard. It is like a full time job keeping them picked up. I am kind of a neat freak and that includes the front of my yard. LOL Something new about me you might have known. 

Ok, enough of that how about this card? I just finished it. This card was created using Taylored Expressions: Merry Millie stamp and coordinating die set and Stencil Strip Holiday (it was the freebie last month)

I used 4 of the stencils to create this background with Ranger Oxide inks. I splattered a little Copic opaque (of course). You know how much I love that stuff. LOL I colored the images using Copic sketch markers and die cut with the coordinating die set. Finishing up with stamping this cute sentiment and that is it. Oh yeah I used foam tape to give some dimension. But you already knew that.... right?

Have a fantastic weekend.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Remember that God is bigger than all that is going on in the world.
God bless you all.
