Stud Puffin...

Friday is here and I am up early writing this post. I created this card yesterday for the Lawn Fawn Challenge: For the Birds. I just got this Stud Puffin stamp set and well it was the perfect time to ink it up. 

I inked up these cuties with Copic sketch markers and fussy cut around them. I used one of my Ranger/Alcohol ink backgrounds again with the Lawn Fawn: Polka Heart Background die. Got to love an all heart background... right?

Totally simple card to create if you already have the fun background created. You could even use pretty patterned paper. I don't think about the colors I just go with what I love. The more color the better in my option. 

That is all for today and maybe the weekend.
We will see what the weekend brings.

Have an awesome Friday and a fabulous weekend!
Thanks for stopping by.

Note to Say...

Well hello blog friends. I am back again so soon with another card. I was not sure if my crafty mojo would be active but to my surprise it was fully loaded and ready to ink up some fun stamps. I was in a mood to ink up The Stamp Market.

One of my new favorite things is stenciled backgrounds. You can use any color combo and pretty much have a fabulous background... well at least that is what I have discovered. I almost went with a white card-stock background and changed my mind at the last moment. But I knew when I was creating it that I would have to add a little white to brighten it up. 

At the last minute before photographing I added this red and white strip at the bottom. I kind of have a thing for stripes. They are just fun. I have thought of having a striped wall painted in my craft room but have not been that adventurous. 

Well that is all for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a day full of sunshine and smiles.

Happy Wednesday everyone. Boy o' boy I can't believe this is the first time I am posting this week. I am not going to lie it has been one of those weeks. You know the one where you just do not feel like doing anything. Well that's me... Nothing was keeping me busy. LOL

So why not perk up right and make a fun card. Today I have for you an Avery Elle card, created using Three Stars die set and Wheelie Great stamp set

I used one of my most favorite backgrounds. It was created using water and Ranger alcohol inks. Just fill a pan with water (use a pan you do not want anymore) and well don't fill all the way just enough to dip your paper laying down. Drop a few different colors of alcohol inks in and put your white card-stock in flat and pull out immediately. Let dry overnight or use a heat gun and tada you have a fun colorful background. 

I die cut the stars out and fill the space with some polka dot vellum. Please don't ask where I got my polka dot vellum because I have had it for a few years and have no idea where it came from. This is not good because I want some more and well I guess I will just have to hunt for it. UNLESS YOU KNOW WHERE TO BUY IT.. LEAVE A COMMENT.. THANKS

All images are colored with Copic sketch markers (of course) and I hand cut the images. I used some Scotch foam adhesives here and there and that is it. A card is made.. yippee

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a most pleasant day!

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.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

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.

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.
