One of Many Christmas Cards...

Hello friends,

Every year, I run out of Christmas cards.  It's just I didn't make enough :).  This year, I'm going to give it a head start.

Today's card was made with a TAWS set called Mistletoe Kisses.  This set has many super cute Christmas images.  They can be used as group, or background builder as well.  I stamped and colored mine with Copic markers.  Then I adhered them on a snowy background using foam tape.  The background was created with distress ink and a stencil.  The sentiment in red finished up the look.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

A Clean and Simple Chrismas Card


Today I'm sharing a Christmas card made with a TAWS stamp set called Mistletoe Kisses.  I used the snowflake stamp to create the backdrop for my "Xmas" word.  "Merry" stamp is by PTI and "Xmas" is by Mama Elephant.  

Thanks for visiting, have a wonderful weekend!

Pinterest Inspired October Challenge

Hello friend,

This is my 2nd post for today.  In this post, I'm sharing a card made for October's Pinterest Inspired Challenge.

I am inspired by the beautiful periwinkle blue and silver gray as well as the sketchy branches.  So here's my take:

The flower, hello stamps are from Altenew.  I also used the 'hello' matching die to cut my sentiment.

A Coffee Card and Paper Sweetie October Challenge

 Hello friends,

Today, I'm sharing a card made for Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and inspired by Paper Sweeties October Inspiration.

This card is inspired by the rustic feel and the color scheme of Paper Sweeties image.  I made this as a coffee gift card holder for my sons' teachers.  I used kraft card stock, and the outlined leaves from the set Bee Happy.  The coffee cup die is by SSS... I cut out the window and adhered a gold sequin shaker (made with a fuse tool) on the back.  Next, I adhered the kraft panel over a card base.  

On the inside, I made a gift card pocket using the fuse tool and adhered it.  There's enough room to write a message below the gift card.

I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!

Sequin Birthday Card


Today, I'm sharing a sequin birthday card made with TAWS sets: Flap Happy, and It's My Party!  

Flap Happy is my most favorite TAWS stamp set yet.  These little birds can't get any cuter... I can't stop making cards with these guys... seriously.  

I first created a sequin pocket using a fuse tool.  Shaker card is so much fun to make with the fuse tool.  I adhered it behind my wavy panels (PTI's sentiment split curve die).  The two birds were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  Finally, I stamped the sentimen and adhered my birds.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!


MFT Superstar Card Contest - Entry #2

Hello again,

This is my second post for the second entry of MFT Card Contest.  This time, I'm going with a gender neutral love card for the little ones.  The MFT products used to make this card are: I Love You More, I Knead You, and Die-namics Fishtails Flags STAX.  

On a piece of watercolor paper, I created the background using the kitten and yarn ball stamps.  I stamped, embossed and watercolored the images.  On a small piece of vellum, I die cut the banner, then stamped the sentiment and embossed it.  I trimmed the banner, and adhered it on my background using a smaill glue dot.  With a crop-a-dile, I punched 2 holes at the top to pull the ribbon through then tie the ribbon.  Finally, I adhered my my card on a card base.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a great evening!
