Kindness Means...

Hello blog friends. I hope you all have started your week out right with a little crafting fun. I made this card this weekend and just now sharing. I had a busy weekend. But it is already Tuesday and we are hoping along this week. 

Today I created a card using Taylored Expressions: Oh My Word: Thank You stamp and die set and Sealed With Love Cling & Clear Combo set. I used Tsukineko Neon inks to fill my card with neon fun. 

I first stamped the Sealed With Love background and then stamped all the color with the clear set that is part of this set. This set was one of the monthly freebies when you spend a certain dollar amount. I don't think they have it for sale for individual purchase yet. 

I added a little sparkle with Ranger Stickles Black Diamond to the hearts. 

Next I stamped the Oh My Word Thank You stamp and die cutting with the coordinating die. Finishing up with heat embossing the sentiment on black card-stock and white embossing powder. 

Now as you can see this card is so easy to create. The background is easy just time consuming if you fill in the envelope color. But really that's the fun part. LOL 

That is all for today.

I am off to create another.

Thanks for stopping by.

Pink & Main October Sneak Peeks...

YAY! for sneak peek time.. Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE.  This release is full of fluffy fun. Today I am sneak peeking the new... Flock (Royal Robe, Fuzzy Monster, Cotton Candy, In the Clouds and Chickadee), On the Town Gems, Rainbow Friend Dies, Unicorn Wishes stamp set, and Diagonal Cover Dies. I also used the already released Pastel Dreams paper pad, 6x6 Adhesive Sheets and Sentiment Strips dies.

I know you are getting excited now... right?

I started with the 6x6 Adhesive sheets and the Diagonal Cover dies. I adhered on of the sides of the adhesives sheets to a piece of card-stock then die cut the center of the Diagonal Cover. I then pilled a section at a time so I can add the Flocking powder. The Flocking powder sticks perfectly. I repeated the process for each color. I die cut the frame of the Diagonal Cover onto a piece of the Pastel Dreams paper. I adhered the die cut pieces to my card base.

Next I die cut the FRIEND die from the Rainbow Friend die set onto a piece of silver glitter and plain white card-stock. I adhered the two together and then added it to my card base using foam adhesives for a little dimension. I stamped out the next sentiment from the Unicorn Wishes stamp set and die cut using the Sentiment Strip Dies and adhered to the top of my Friend sentiment.

Finishing up with a few of these pretty On the Town Gems.

Dont you just love that Flocked background? I am having lots of crafty fun with it. Make sure you check out the entire release because you are going to love it. The release is on the 20th of October, which is right around the corner.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Thank You for Everything...

Hello blog friends.. I am on a roll and have created another card. It is what we do.... right? I was in a Fall mood so I created this Hello BlueBird card using Hello Bluebird: Fall Friends and Pumpkin Patch stamp set, Waffle Flower Crafts: Lacy Panel and Elle's Studio: Sweater Weather paper pad. 

I started with using this scrap piece of designer paper for the background. I think it is from MFT. It was in my scraps so sorry I do not know who makes it. I next die cut this Waffle Flower Crafts Lacy Panel die on Elle's Studio Sweater Weather designer paper. This is one of my favorite dies. 

I then stamped out my images and colored with Copic sketch markers. I did not have the coordinating dies so I did a little fussy cutting and adhered the images to my card using a little bit of foam adhesives for some dimension. 

Finishing up with stamping this sentiment on some kraft card-stock and adding it to my card. 

So easy to create. 

That is all for today.
I don't know what is coming tomorrow... stay tuned. LOL

Thanks for stopping by.

Color Fun...

Hello blog friends. I am posting late today. Actually I have not posted since Saturday... what is wrong with me. LOL I do post on my Instagram page sometimes and not on my blog. So I hope that you follow me on Instagram too. 

Today I created this Lawn Fawn card. I used Stinkin Cute stamp set, Bee Mine stamp set and Magic Iris Fall Leaves lawn cuts. 

The background was created with ink pads. I just pressed them onto my card-stock to create this colorful background. I used Waffle Flower Crafts ink pads. I don't know if they still sell ink pads but when they did I was very impressed with the colors. I then cut the background into panels and adhered them to my card base. 

Next I die cut all my pieces out on white and kraft card-stock. I added the flowers from the same die set to the circled Leaf. I used some foam adhesives and some liquid glue. A little dimension is always good. 

I then stamped out my images and colored with Copic sketch markers. I had to do a little fussy cutting as I do not own the coordinating dies. But that is the story of my life.... really... LOL

I finished up with added all my die cuts and colored images to the background card-base and decided not to add a sentiment. I played with that option for a while and decided against it. 

I felt that I need a bit more so I added the white NUVO Crystal Drops to the center of the flowers and Sweet Lilac NUVO Crystal Drops to the branches. Now it is done.....

I hope you like this card. I was really proud of it when I finished. Dont you just love when you really like how your cards come out. That does not always happen for me. I think we are our worst critics. 

Thanks for stopping by.

I hope you had an amazing day and if you are ready this on Thursday I hope you have an awesome Thursday.

Holiday Season...

Happy Saturday. Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE.  I am sharing a card that I created using Pink & Main September release. I created this card using Homespun Christmas paper pad, Starlight Gems, Polly & Pete Wreath stamp and coordinating die and Winter Glitter paper pack.

I started with adding one of these fun Homespun Christmas designer papers to my card base. Next I stamped out the Polly & Pete Wreath and colored using Copic Sketch markers. I added a little bit of Liquid Appliqué to the hats just for fun. I added the image to my card using foam adhesives for a little dimension.

I stamped out the sentiment from the Polly & Pete Wreath stamp set and added it to my card base then finished up with a strip of Winter Glitter card-stock above and below the sentiment. This kind of highlights the sentiment. But of course I am not done I wanted a bit more shine so I added some Straight Gems.

Yay for Holiday cards and I have much more to create. Do you send out homemade Christmas cards? I try to send out mostly homemade but some might get store-bought, just depends on how crafty I get. 

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

Have an awesome weekend.

Filled with Smiles...

Wednesday is here and it is time for another fun card. Today I am creating with Lawn Fawn. I created this card using: Trick or Treat stamp set, Fortune Teller Tabby stamp set, Bayou Backdrop die and MFT Star Celebration stencil. 

I started with ink blending some Oxide inks... Black Soot, Wilted Violet and Mowed Lawn, then I die cut the Bayou Background die. I sprinkled a little Copic Opaque just because I can. I used the MFT Star Celebration stencil on my card base before adding the die cut Bayou Background. 

Next I stamped out all these cute images and colored them with Copic Sketch markers. I did not have the coordinating dies so I had to do a little fussy cutting. My favorite thing. LOL

I added the images to my card using foam adhesives for dimension and finished up with stamping the rest of the sentiment, trimming down and added to the center. 

Oh yeah, I almost forgot I added a little Stickles here and there for a little shine. 

That is it... Simple and fun to create.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Remember to SMILE.

You're Fabulous....

Welcome blog friends. I hope you all had an awesome Monday. My Monday was great, got lots done and it just happened to pour like cats and dogs last night. The lighting and thunder was so loud, I totally love it. I love when it rains and mostly when it pours. I don't know why I just find it to be peaceful. So needless to say I slept well and I am starting my day with a little stamping.

Today's card was created using The Stamp Market: Bows For You. I have used this set before and I think it is a retired set. Not sure if anyone still sells it. 

I stamped the background using Pink Fresh inks. Thank goodness for the Misti, it sure does help me stamp straight. When I freehand it, lets just say it is almost never straight. LOL 

Finished up with stamping the larger bow with black ink and fussy cutting. After I fussy cut it I remembered that I had the die. LOL Go figure. 

Really not much to this card. Just lots of stamping.

Thanks for stopping by.

I hope you all have a great Tuesday!

North Pole....

Happy Monday blog friends. I am doing all my typical Monday chores... washing clothes, cleaning the house.. all the fun stuff. NOT but someone has to do it.. right? I did manage to find one fun thing today and it was creating this card. 

I just got the new Lawn Fawn: Stitched Snowflake Frame dies, Let it Shine Snowflakes paper pad and Penguin Party. 

So I have to be honest right now. I stamped out these images and had no idea what kind of scene I was going to create. But as you can see it all came together. I first adhered this pretty designer paper to my card base. I die cut the bottom half using the Palm Tree Border dies. For the top I added these pretty snowflakes that I die cut on silver card-stock. I added a few Pink & Main Crystal Gems to the center of some of the snowflakes. 

The images are colored with Copic Sketch markers and I sprinkled a little of that stuff I love... Copic Opaque to give that snow effect. 

I fussy cut the images and added to my card using some foam adhesives for dimension. 

YAY! for Christmas cards. I went with non-traditional colors, but if you have followed me for a while you know that is usually what I do. Dont get me wrong, I totally love red and green. Which I will at some point use those traditional colors. 

That is all for today.

I am off to finish that FUN laundry. LOL

Thank you for stopping by.

Have an awesome Monday!
