Fairy Good...

Yes it is Friday and we are on track for the weekend. YIPPEE 

Today I was in a crafty mood so I created this Hello Bluebird card using: Fairy Garden stamp set, Gallery Frame #2. The images are colored with Copic Sketch markers and I actually fussy cut all the images. I guess I was in the mood for cutting some cute images. But I have to say my age is starting to show because I have a hard time seeing all the small detail, but I made it through and here ya go.

I gave some of the images a little dimension by using Scotch foam adhesive. I used a small heart stencil for the background with some Ranger oxide inks. Those little hearts are too fun... don't you think?

That is all for today and the weekend. I will not be crafty this weekend as we have a few things going on. I will catch you up next week. So until then, have a fantastic weekend and remember to smile at a stranger... share some sunshine.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hello blog friends. I hope you all are enjoying your week. We are almost weekend bound. But let's focus on today. It is cloudy outside today and suppose to rain. I don't mind the rain, I think that it is peaceful. How about you?

Yesterday I started making this card. It was lots of stamping but totally fun to create. I used Studio Katia: Sweet Heart Candy stamp and die set. All stamped with Ranger Oxide inks. I kept it to the traditional Valentines colors.

This stamp set is so fun because it comes with all these fun sentiments and the cute smiles too. Plus who doesn't love a good stamped background... right? After stamping the background I die cut the hearts twice and stamped these two sentiments which I might add go so perfectly together. The die set come with two hearts so you can layer them. I did layer them to give them some dimension on my card. Sorry I know it is a little hard to see in pictures... you will  just have to take my word for it. LOL

It is Creativation time and I have been seeing online everyone getting excited for it. As you know I usually go but I am sitting this one out. I know hard to believe. I will miss seeing all those fun blog friends. I am sure they will all have a great time.

That is all for today.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Have an awesome day full of smiles!

Hugs & Kisses...

We are almost at the end of Tuesday and I am just posting. I had a late start to crafting this week. Funny how the week starts sometimes and crafting is last on your mind. But I made some Oatmeal cookies and that put me in a good mood because they where so yummy and I made a card. LOL Go figure.....

Now this stencil is suppose to be a Feathered stencil but don't you think it looks like hearts? OR it looks like both. I can see both in this stencil. Today I used it as hearts. Why not right? I used Tim Holtz oxide inks and die cut the rest and put together using foam adhesives. Finishing up with stamping the & Kisses sentiment... trim and adhere. Totally simple... right? Oh yeah I can't forget that pretty polka dot paper it is from My Favorite Things. 

That is all for today.

Forever My Love...

YES it is Friday and we are so ready for the weekend. What a week we have had. I have to report that I did get a fun Disneyland trip in this week. That is always fun. I have not posted much this week but I have managed to create a card today.

Lately I have been into patterns so why not go wild with designs... right? I love this Paper Bliss paper pad. I love the colors and patterns and as you can see they go so well together. Lots of die cutting and just a bit of stamping. Totally easy card to create just use LOTS of foam adhesives to give it lots of dimension. The hearts are just popping off the card. 

Have a fantastic weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.

Lots of Hearts...

Happy hello everyone. Today I am sharing a card I created using Neat & Tangled: Love You die set and My Favorite Things: Heart Cover die. No stamping for me today. I have been trying to use all my die sets to create cards. Sometimes it is hard to do because you know how much I love to color. 

I used Echo Park Paper Co: Mom paper pad for these fun patterns. Did you know that black and white stripes is one of my most favorite patterns?  

I die cut the sentiment three times to give it some dimension. Just use glue that dries clear, mostly when you are using black card-stock. This is another simple card to create. It just took a while to glue all the hearts but not hard to create at all. You can really use any patterns of paper with this die and I think it will always look great.

That is all for today.
Have an awesome day.
Thanks for stopping by!

Today and I am sharing two Winter Fun cards that I created using Evelin T. Designs: Fun in the Snow, Good Tidings to You and Warm Winter Wishes stamp sets

These stamps all coordinate so you can mix and match them. I used three of the sets from the last release. Evelin T. Designs: Fun in the Snow, Good Tidings to You and Warm Winter Wishes stamp sets.

I also used some dies from Waffle Flower Crafts: Sun Shine Panel and Papertrey Ink: Ornament backgrounds.

These cute cute ice skaters are colored with Copic Sketch markers. Don't they just look like they are having so much fun? Totally love these sweet images.

As you can see all the Evelin T. Designs stamps mixing very well together. So go crazy and have creating. If you would like more info on my cards head on over to the Evelin T. Design blog. Make sure to check out all the other design team projects for more inspiration.

Avery Elle: Valentines Day...

NOW it is Friday. Boy o boy yesterday was a long day, just because I was already in the Friday mood. But now that we are straight, this Friday is even better. So I was also in a card making mood I created this Avery Elle: Lots of Hedgehogs, Peek-a-Boo Car, And Then stamp sets along with Avery Elle: Quilted Frame die set

I was not going to make another card this week but really could not resist. So as promised I created a more traditional Valentines Day card. Pinks and Purples!

I colored all the images with Copic sketch markers and pieced them all together. I die cut the background and added some silver glitter paper to the opening. Gives it a little shimmer.. don't you think? I used a white gel pen on the designer paper and some of the image here and there. For dimension I used some foam adhesives. Really is a simple card to create.

I hope you all have a great weekend. My husband and I will be out and about as usual. We like to eat out on the weekends so maybe we will find a new restaurant to eat at. We did recently find a bakery/restaurant that is delicious. Best sandwiches ever.

That is all for today.
Thanks for stopping by.

Valentine's Day Hearts....

Happy Thursday everyone.. I was just told that it was not Friday. LOL Apparently I am a day ahead of myself. Darn that kind of messed up my day. I was ready for the weekend. GO Figure...

Today I created this Lawn Fawn filled Valentines day card. I have been seeing all the hearts on Instagram and well thought I would join the Valentines day party. I have created a card like this one before. It is not exactly like the last one but very similar. 

You might be thinking those are not Valentines Day colors, well you know me I am a non-traditional type of gal. I love patterns and mixing things up a little. But if this does not catch your eye don't worry I do have a traditional Valentines Day card planned. So please make sure to come back and check it out. It will not post until next week sometime. 

I am so sorry I almost forgot to say......
Here's to a wonderful new year full of many blessings and happy crafting. 
Thank you for following me.
