i-crafter October release...


Yay today is the release for i-crafter. We are sharing a few sneak peeks of the release today. I am showcasing the new i-crafter: Santa Box die set. This die was calling my name, you all know how much I love making Christmas cards and gifts. 

The die is so easy to use you just need fu paper and maybe some twine. I used scraps for mine. I had some fun striped paper that worked perfectly with these cuties. 


Just die cut all the pieces with the colors you like and then piece together. All you need is a bit of glue. Totally simple to create. I finished up with a little bit of twine. This box opens up so you can put some money, candy or even a small gift inside. Totally fun for Christmas. A mist have if you ask me.

Make sure to check out the entire release HERE on the i-crafter website

Leaves are Falling...


Today is the 30th of September. Where does the time go? I am finishing up with month with this fun i-crafter: Leaves are Falling stamp set card. I am also on the i-crafter blog HERE. We are officially in Fall and I have Fall and Halloween on my crafty mind.


The images are colored with Copic sketch markers and fussy cut my yours truly. I did a simple Ranger oxide ink background and splattered a little opaque and ink for the background. I used some foam adhesives to give dimension to my card. Finishing up with this pretty sentiment. 

Another simple card to create. Just color, blend and adhere.

Have an awesome Wednesday!

Taylored Expressions: Hey There Kit


Happy Tuesday everyone. 
Today is the Taylored Expressions Hey There kit release.
Available while supplies last..


Are you in love yet? This kit is amazing and I know you want to get your hands on it. I fell in love right after my first card was inked up. 

For this first card I used the awesome stencil that is included in the kit with two of TE inks and the pretty blending brushes to create this fun background. The cool thing is it has a spot for this sentiment to fit in perfectly. The stamp set comes with three different Hey There designs to stamp. I used two of them on this card with the coordinating die set. I added foam tape to give the sentiment some dimension. 


AND yet another fun stencil you can create with. I actually used the stencil twice here for the background. I just turned it so I had polka dots coming from every direction. The Hey There sentiment was stamped using the Hey There stamp set and the shadows are created using the Hey There matching stencil. It is a three way stencil that you line up and add whatever colors you choose. Then I die cut the sentiment using the coordinating die set that is included in the kit. Totally fun right?


I went a little wild with color for this one. Did you know that the kits come with envelops and envelop seals? I used those colors to inspire this card. This time I stamped directly onto the card base and then added this fun sentiment from the other stamp set that is included named Good Vibes.

This is the supply list for all three cards. Just click on the image and it will take you directly to the product. The kits are limited so make sure to get you hands on it before it is sold out.

 
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Taylored Expressions Shopping!

Witching you the Best...


Yay it is Friday and we are getting closer to October which means... Halloween is right around the corner so I am sharing today a card created using Pink & Main: Your Spell stamp, Best Friends paper pad and coordinating die set and Spider Web Cover die. I have a special thing on this card that I am not showing here so you will have to head on over to the Pink & Main blog HERE to see it. Trust me you will want to see it. 


For the background I sued some of those fun neon watercolors. I did a little blending with the colors and I am so happy with how it came out. I layered this cool Spider Web Cover die that I die cut on some designer paper from the Best Friends paper pad. The images are colored with Copic sketch NEON colors and die cut with the coordinating die set. 

Make sure to head on over to the Pink & Main blog HERE for that special effect I added...

Psalm 121:5


We made it too Wednesday yay. The week is going by a little slower and today is a little hotter but cooler weather coming in tonight yay. You know how happy this makes me. LOL

Today I am inking up more of the new Taylored Expressions Fall/Thanksgiving release. Today I am inking up the new Modern Tree Stamp and Stencil combo with the Linen Background stamp. I love the stamp and stencil combos. Anything to use the TE Blender Brushes


I used the TE Pea Pod, Granny Smith, Pineapple, Lemon Marmalade, Pumpkin and Candy Corn inks. For the sentiment I used white embossing powder on the Lime Zest card-stock. I wrapped some Burlap string at the top of my sentiment and added some foam tape for a little dimension. Tada we have another fun fall card, YAY!

That is it for today. Now it is time to think of something fun for dinner. I think I might make some Teriyaki Chicken. I make an awesome and super yummy Teriyaki sauce... thanks to the internet. LOL

Taylored Expressions: September Fall release


Yay, it is the Fall release from Taylored Expressions and I am so happy to be sharing a few of what's being released. You can see the entire release HERE

This first card was created using the new Fall Foliage Stamp & Stencil set and the Handlettered Thanksgiving stamp and die combo. The links to all the products are right below, just click on the image and it will take you directly to the item. 


I first heat embossed the stems using black embossing powder. The stencil is a set of three so you can change the colors of the leaves. Using the awesome Taylored Expressions blender brushes you can add all those fun fall colors you love. I went with the traditional colors but you can really go wild with colors. I finished up with stamped this gorgeous Happy Fall Y'all sentiment on some of the TE Toffee card-stock and die cut with the coordinating dies. I actually die cut a couple more times so that I could layer it to give the sentiment some dimension. Finishing up with tie a simple bow out of some burlap string.
   
Next up is the adorable Felt Pumpkin Pouch.


I can see these on the Thanksgiving table filled with a special treat for all your guest. You get the precut felt and burlap string. With the new Tag Team Thanksgiving stamp set you can decorate a cute tag with a special message. 

I stamped a couple of the sentiments on my tag and finished up with this adorable little Turkey that I fussy cut out and added using foam tape so it is easy to open.

MerFriends...


YAY, Today I am on the Evelin T Designs blog HERE and I am getting crafty with Evelin T Designs: Under The Sea: Merfriends stamp set. I love creating beach, ocean themed cards and today I did a little pop up card using one of LF dies. 

I went a little wild adding more and more sea critters but I just cant help myself they are too cute. Evelin creates the cutest little images and totally fun to color. 


I colored the images using Copic sketch markers and did a little fussy cutting but I kind of like to cut out my own images sometimes. I wanted my card to pop with color so I just pulled out some colors that I love and went with it. 

I decided to leave the sentiment off so it can also be displayed as a frame of art which I have right now sitting on one of my selfs in my craft room. It is just too fun to give it away. Do you do that too, make a card and like it that much you just cant part with it. I will not tell you how many I have but it is a bit. LOL

Make sure to follow Evelin T Designs.... there might just be a new release coming soon.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful Monday!

Creating is Caring...


Happy weekend blog friends. I don't usually post on the weekend but I have been going through my stamps and getting rid of some that I just don't use anymore. Let's just say even though they are old they still sell on Ebay. I have been selling them like crazy on there. 

So I found these two older sets that I still love. I used Mama Elephant: Water Blooms stamp set for the background and the sentiment is from Altenew: Crafty Life, and I am sad to say that I had never inked this Craft Life stamp set up before. Dang... what does that tell you? But I am cleaning up and getting ready for some new. 


I stamped out the background directly onto my card base using the ME stamp set and WFC ink pads. Finished up with stamping the sentiment directly in the middle and tada that was it. I think it took like 10 minutes to create. So simple but the colors really make the card pop... don't you think?

I hope you all are enjoying your weekend. I appreciate you stopping by my blog.

Have an awesome day!
