Thanks Cherry Much...

YAY it is Friday.... who's ready for the weekend? I don't have any plans but I am ready for it. The week seems to run long but always grateful for each day.

Today I am sharing a card that I created using Taylored Expressions: Very Cherry Cardmaking Kit. They are still available and I have to say totally fun to create with. 

I started with stamping the Very Cherry cling stamp using TE Oreo ink and then I took the Very Cherry Clear set and filled in the color to the cherries and the leaves. I used TE Peaches n Cream, Watermelon and Key Lime

I was going to leave the background white but decided to color it in with Copic Sketch markers B01 and B02. I did not stop there I also added some Copic Opaque. 

For the sentiment I die cut the Open Scallop Circle die that comes in the kit and die cut it on some white card-stock that I also colored with Copic Sketch markers. I then stamped this fun sentiment and added one of the Cherries from the Cherry On Top clear set also included in the kit. 

Finishing up with some of Taylored Expressions: Clear Drip Drops. These are not included in the kit but you can buy them separately. YAY!

Lots of goodies in these Taylored Expressions Cardmaking Kits that help make cardmaking choices easy. Just take the kit out and get your craft on. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a crafty fun weekend!

Sending LOVE...

Well hello blog friends. How is your week going? Mine is great, just enjoying each day to it's fullest. Today I got out my new Lawn Fawn dies. It was time to get them on a card. I used Ranger Oxide inks for color and die cut these pretty Happy Hibiscus dies. 

The background was created using Ranger Alcohol inks and water. You know that I love these fun colorful backgrounds. They make for a card full of color and happy. 

The flowers are adhered to the card using foam tape for dimension and some just liquid glue. After my card is all together minus the sentiment I sprinkled a bit of Copic opaque. I just love that look and I never get tired of it. I hope you don't either. LOL

Finishing up with this cute sentiment from Lawn Fawn Stud Puffin stamp set. 

Really if you think about it this card was so simple. Just a little ink blending, die cutting and one stamped sentiment. The background was already created. I kind of create a bunch of these because they are messy and take a while to dry. They are good to have when you need a quick background.

That will be it for today....

Thank you for stopping by.

Have an awesome day!

Just A Note...

Happy Saturday everyone, today and I am sharing a card that I created using the newly released Pink & Main: Dotted Cover Dies, Just A Note Dies and I paired them up with some of the older released Pink & Main: Layered Rectangles A2 Dies and Vitamin Sea paper pad. Mixing it all up with the new release.

I die cut the Dotted Cover Dies on some of Vitamin Sea paper pad designer paper. I overlaid the Dotted Cover Dies on a die cut piece using Layered Rectangles A2 dies. I adhered them together and then adhered to my card base. Next I die cut the Just A Note die on some misc. white and black card-stock. I adhered them and added them to my card.

Just a simple card with a fun scripted note. I love this type of card because you can use it anytime.

Make sure to check out the entire release. It is full of fun sentiments. A little something for everyone and for sure a fill your card kind of release.

Thank you for stopping by.

Taylored Expressions: Merry Blooms Cardmaking Kit....

 July is the time to start those Christmas cards.

Taylored Expressions just released the Merry Blooms Cardmaking Kit

Perfect timing... right?

I love cardmaking kits that make cardmaking so easy. I started out with the Merry Blooms stamp, stencil, clear combo. I used TE premium inks Granny Smith and Lime Zest for the leaves. I kind of just stamped the ink here and there and mixed it up for a little contrast. Now time to stencil these gorgeous flowers. I used TE premium inks Watermelon and Cupcake. With the clear set I stamped the details of the flower with Watermelon and Dijon for the center. 

Finishing up with this beautiful scripted sentiment from the Joyful clear stamp set and die cut using the coordinating dies. 

Dont forget about those pretty envelopes and seals included in the kit.

I went a little non-traditional on this one. I first created this background by cutting strips of TE Premium Sweet Basil and Salt Water Taffy card-stock and adhering them to my card base. For fun I sprinkled a little Copic Opaque. 

Next I die cut these Perfect Poinsettia dies on some of TE Pink Champagne card-stock and stamped the details from the Merry Blooms clear set. I added them to my card base using foam adhesives for a little dimension. I trimmed the Poinsettia's  around the edges. 

Finishing up with cutting a wider strip of Salt Water Taffy and stamping this lovely sentiment. I also added it to the card using foam adhesives. 

Thanks for stopping by... Have a wonderful day!

Thinking of You...

Happy Monday everyone. Today I am enjoying the company of my mom. She came to visit from CO. It is always a good day when moms around... right!

Today I am sharing a card that I created using Brutus Monroe: Homegrown Happiness Inspiration Box

I started with stamping out the Homegrown Happiness stamps on my card base. In the negative space I colored in the space using Copic Sketch markers. I kept it simple. Finishing up with stamping this sentiment on some of the card-stock included in the box. I adhered it flat using liquid glue. 

I hope you all have a great week. I had the best weekend with my mom we went to the Fair, which I am so happy to see that is back for us all to enjoy. I love me a good Fair. Reminds me of when I was small. 

That is all for today.

Tickled Pink...

 YAY! for Saturday. Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I am getting crafty with Pink & Main Stand Tall stamp and coordinating die set and Circle Spotlights 1 stencil. We all love a cute Flamingo set.... right?

I first used the Circle Spotlights 1 stencil with various inks to create this colorful background. I stamped this adorable flamingo from the Stand Tall stamp set and die cut using the coordinating dies. I added the colored flamingo to my card base using foam adhesives for a little dimension. Finishing up with this sentiment also from the Stand Tall stamp set.

A very simple card with a cute message.... a must have set for sure!

That is all for today. I am off to enjoy my weekend with my mom. She is here from CO. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Sweetest Thing...

I am counting the days down until Friday because my mom is coming to town. I have not seen her in two years so you can image my excitement. Thanks to covid I am sure a lot of you have not seen your loved ones. I am so grateful that we are starting to get back to normal. I pray that it stays on track. No one should not go two years to see their parents. 

Today I am sharing a card that I created using Taylored Expressions: Tutti Frutti stamp and coordinating dies, Bokeh Stencil, TE glitter card-stock, Simple Strips Thanks, Simple Strips Asymmetrical die, Bitty Blender Brushes and TE Premium inks Oreo, Pineapple, Guava, Pink Champagne, Cupcake and Candy Corn

I started with using the Bokeh Stencil with the Bitty Blender Brushes and TE Premium inks Pineapple, Guava, Pink Champagne, Cupcake and Candy Corn. I also sprinkled a little Copic Opaque. I set the background aside while I stamp and color the Tutti Frutti images. I colored with Copic Sketch markers and then die cut with the coordinating dies. 

Before adding the images to my card base I cut some of TE silver card-stock and added it to the sides for a little shine. Then I die cut one of the Mini Slim Trifold Circle dies on some of TE Vellum and added it to my card. 

I adhered the watermelon and strawberry to my card using liquid glue and then added the pineapple using foam adhesives. Finishing up with this cool sentiment from Simple Strips Thanks. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Have an awesome Wednesday!

Taylored Expressions: Designer Dangles Release...

 YAY! it is time for another Taylored Expressions Designer Dangles Release.
If you like to create your own earrings you are going to love this new additions to the TE Designer Dangles collection. 

I love the new Blue Blossoms leather that you see here with the new Knock On Wood On Point Frames. These earrings are so easy to create. You can buy the Designer Dangles On Point dies to die cut the leather design that you want for your earrings. With the Slim Chain Bent Nose Pliers I added the jump rings and the earring wires. It is that easy and totally fun.

With this set I just used the Custom Craft Leather: Farmhouse Flowers and Trendy Twigs with the new In The Round and On Point Designer Dangles dies. The dies also cut the hole for the jump rings so there is no cutting involved. Repeat the process with the Slim Chain Bent Nose Pliers to added the jump rings and the earring wires. 

I used the custom design Trendy Twigs leather with the In The Round and On Point Designer Dangles dies. I added the half circle on the front of the Knock on Wood In The Round using Bearly Art Precision glue. Make sure not to over glue so the glue does not come out the sides. When adding the jump rings I added the On Point leather to the back of the In The Round. I just used the jump ring to add it, no glue. Finishing up with the earring wires. 

So easy and so fun to create..... time for you to give it a try. 

Make sure to check out the entire release and the design team projects for more inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great Tuesday!
