When Friends Gather...


Yay for Tuesday... today I am on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog and I am sharing a card I created using My Favorite Things: Sweater Weather in The Woods stamp set and Its Bitsy Polka Dots Pastels 6x6 paper pad and Waffle Flower Crafts: Mico Grid Panel 1 die set. Nothing like cute paper and fun stamps to create with. Hi, my name is Annette and I am addicted to cute stamps. LOL


The background was created by cutting strips of the Its Bitsy Polka Dots Pastels paper and adhering to a piece of card-stock. After that I used this fun Waffle Flower Crafts: Mico Grid Panel 1 die set to cut this square polka background. The images are colored with Copic Sketch markers and I fussy cut around them. I used foam adhesives to give them some dimension. Finishing up with the sentiment being stamped on a piece of card-stock, trimmed and adhered to the card base.

Have an awesome day.

Happy Everything....


Hello blog friends. Today I am inking up this new stamp set I just got from Waffle Flower Crafts: Happy Fall. When I seen this set I just had to have it. These stamps are just so totally cute and fun to color. 

I colored the images with Copic Sketch markers. One day I will list the colors I used. It just seems like so much work keep tracked of them. Do you know what I mean? OR is it just me? 


I did not buy the coordinating dies so I had to do a little fussy cutting but this set does have coordinating dies if your interested. Does make card making a little easier. I started out fussy cutting so it kind of just comes easy to me. 

I added some of the images using Scotch foam adhesives to give them some dimension. I have two big rolls of Scotch tape so I am not even worried about running out soon. Found them on sale so I said why not. I should keep track to see how long they last me.

Well that is about it today.
Thank you so much for stopping by on this fine Wednesday.

Have a blessed day!

Love Never Melts...


Happy Hello everyone... today I am linking up to the Paper Smooches Challenge anything goes and the Open Call for design team members. Have you seen and have you linked up yet? I have been a LONG time fan of Paper Smooches, so why not try my luck... right?

Today I am getting crafty with Paper Smooches: Cool Dudes stamp and coordinating die set and Cloud dies. Cute Snowmen ah yes please... 


I colored these cuties with Copic Sketch markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. The background was created using a Ranger: Tim Holtz stencil and how about that fun cloud. I added some pretty gold washi tape on the sides and stamped the sentiment directly on the card base. The images where all added using Scotch foam adhesives to give them some dimension. Totally simple to create.

If you love Paper Smooches nows your chance to try out too.

25 Days of Christmas Tags & Pink and Main...


Happy Day everyone.. today I am taking part of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags which Pink & Main is one of the Happy sponsors. Yippee....

Todays tags are created using Pink and Main: Winter Portraits, Reverse Scallop Rectangle dies and Be Merry paper pad.


I first stamped all these fun images and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.


Die cut and coordinating die set, if you don't have that you can fussy cut. You will want them cut out so you can give them some dimension on the tags. 


Next die cut the small Reverse Scallop Rectangle on some Be Merry paper pad and white card-stock. 


Now it is time to put them all together. Use your foam adhesives on the colored images to give them some dimension. Finishing up with adding some pretty May Arts burlap string.

Cream In My Coffee...


Happy November everyone.. today I am on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog and I am getting crafty with Paper Smooches: In Stitches stamp set and Neat & Tangled: Perfect Blend stamp set

I designed a very simple card today. I love this Paper Smooches: In Stitches stamp set and thought it was perfect for stamping a colorful and fun background. I used Ranger Oxide Inks: Wilted Violet, Mustard Seed, Mermaid Lagoon and Festive Berries


With the Ranger Oxide inks I had to let it dry a little longer so it did not smear so I set aside and then finished up with stamping this fun sentiment from the Neat & Tangled: Perfect Blend stamp set

That was it.... see totally simple. I have to say I really do love it. All the bright colors just make me happy. Color is always good if you ask me.
