Wishing you Rainbows!

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

I have a magical unicorn card to share today!
I LOVE this new Unicorns and Rainbows stamp set from Mama Elephant! I find it so magical and all the cards I've seen with it make me smile!:)
So I've been wanting to create a card with a bright pink background for a while and this set seemed perfect for it. So here it is!

I blended a few shades of pink on my background with the darker color towards the top. I stamped the clouds and sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I cut some white cardstock and silver glittery paper with the puffy cloud border dies from Lawn Fawn.
I stamped my images on heavy weight white card stock, colored in with Copic markers and fussy cut out to adhere over my clouds. 
I added some wink of stella onto my castle cloud and cake cloud and added some stickles onto the unicorn wing. Sadly it doesn't photograph but it looks pretty in person.
Hope you enjoyed.
Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Floral Thank you

Hello again!

I have a floral card today. It sort of reminds me of spring, which I would love right about now with all the snow we have been getting here lately.
Anyway, a little bit about how I created the card: I created my card base out of Neenah desert storm card stock. I used the Storybook 1 die from Pretty Pink Posh with Sea Glass card stock and adhered in my card base. I stamped my sentiment and heat embossed with white embossing powder in one of my windows.

For my flowers and leaves, I used In bloom Addies Garden stamp set from Winnie and Walter, I stamped them on watercolor paper with versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I then water colored them with Zig real brush markers, fussy cut them out and adhered them in the windows on my card. To finish off my card I scattered some sequins around from PPP.

This stamp set set is newer to me and I kinda love it so you will likely be seeing me using it a lot!
Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Have an awesome day!!

Happy Birthday Celebration featuring Lawn Fawn

Hello crafty friends!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
Here to share a card I created for the Celebration challenge over at the Lawnscaping Challenge blog.

For my card I went for clean look, not quite simple because there are several images but I love the look of colored pieces on a white background.

I started with a white card piece and cut another piece of white card stock out of a stitched rectangle die to adhere on my card as my main panel. I used the Grassy Border die to cut out some grass and adhered on the bottom of panel along with a stamped happy birthday sentiment from the Scripty Sayings stamp set.
I stamped and colored my doggies and their accessories from the Critters at the dog Park stamp set with Copic markers and cut out using its coordinating dies. I stamped my little cupcake from the Bake Me A Cake stamp set and fussy cut out to put in my little dog dish. The balloons and little party bird are from Party Animal set.
I colored with a little bit of a light blue Copic marker around my images so my background wasn't completely white and wrapped some bakers twine around the bottom of my main panel to finish it off.
That's it for my Birthday card today!
I love how fun it turned out and that it would work perfectly for a boy or girl.
Thank you SO much very much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day.

Programmed To Party

I feel like it's been forever since I posted just for me. What I mean by that is, I've been posting for the challenge design teams I'm part off but nothing more really.  If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I've had some ups and downs lately and therfore have been a tad absent. So sorry for that! But I've been spending some time in my craft room  again lately and and should be back on a roll, hopefully:)

I have a fun shaker card to share with you today!
I will be playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday: shake it challenge.

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Using the adorable new robot set from Clearly Besotted. Thought this set would be perfect for more masculine cards. I don't have enough sets that aren't too cutesy for masculine cards.
I created my shaker element using patterned paper I had in my stash and a scallop circle die. Once I had my acetate and dimensional foam attached I filled with sequins from PPP, adhered a white piece of cardstock as my backing and adhered my shaker panel onto my card base.
I created my card base using a scallop rectangle die from Avery Elle and stamped some of the smaller stamps I  the set with the same colored ink as my cardstock to create a tone on tone background.
I colored my little robots and balloons with Copic markers and fussy cut out leaving a small white border. 
To finish off my card, I stamped and adhered my sentiment across the card. 

That's it for my card today! I love how fun it turned out.
Thank you so very much for stopping by!

Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #4

Hi crafty friends!

A new challenge starts today over at Stamping Smile Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge blog.
Another fun tic-tac-toe board this week.
For card I used the second row down, sequins, distress inks and stencil.

I started my card by blending Dusty Concord, Milled Lavender and Broken China Distress inks lightly in the background. I then covered with my stencil and blended these colors again a little heavier to create my chevron stenciled background.
I stamped my flower from Winnie and Walter (I'm in love with this set, it's been on my want list for a while so you may be seeing a lot from it :p) on some water color paper and colored with some purple Zig clean colors markers. I stamped my stem directly on the card and adhered my flower.
My sentiment is from the scripty sayings stamp set from Lawn Fawn and I finshed the card off with a sprinkling of sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

That's it for my card today!! Hope you'll play along with over over at the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you have a lovely day!!

The Card Concept #48


Hope your all having a lovely week so far.
A new challenge starts today over at The Card Concept, inspired by the pretty picture below.

I love the ombre look of the hearts in the photo so I wanted to try and carry that into my card.

I started with a panel of watercolor paper and stamped some little hearts from the Written in Watercolor stamp set from MFT with versamark and heat embossed white embossing powder.
I then used different colors of red and pink ink to water color with to create my ombre look. 
Once dry I adhered my panel on a white card base. The love sentiment I cut from Cricut using the Home Accents cartridge, and covered in wink of stella, ( I can never capture this in photos well) and popped up on some foam tape.
The little sentiment underneath is from the Love You Tons stamp set from Clearly Besotted
I added some twine and some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish my card off.

Hope you enjoyed and hope you'll play along with us over at The Card Concept!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!

Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #3

Hi crafty friends & happy Monday!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
I spent almost all day in my craft room creating cards and binge watching Netflix lol, it was actually nice and realxing:)

A new challenge starts today over at the Stamping Smile designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.
I'm here to share the card I created for it.
I used the first row across. Love, add shimmer and hearts.

I used the Mini Bots set from Clearly Besotted. I did some masking of my little bots to blend in my background, and then colored them with Copic markers. I covered both my robots in clear wink of stella, however you can't tell well in the first photo.
For my main panel I used Smoke cardstock from Simon Says Stamp along with the same colored ink to create a tone on tone background using some mini stamps in the set.
For my sentiment piece I used the stitched borders 3 die from Pretty Pink Posh.


That's it for my card today. Hope you enjoyed! I think I'll end up using this card for my hubby for Valentines Day since its not too girly.
Hope you'll play along with us at the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge!!
Thanks for stopping by!!:)
