Hi Everyone!
I am back with my last card for the My Favorite Things Summer Camp 2018.
The last day was to use Symmetry on your card or project.
Boy, let me tell you I struggled on this one, 
so I just used the supplies that I had out already 
and went with something simple.

 I also used two more Complementary Colors: Purple/Yellow.
I used the Make A Wish stamp set and dies, 
the candles are the symmetrical part of the card.

Woo-Hoo!! So thankful to play along 
and have some fun crafty time, FINALLY!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have an amazing day!!

Hi Again!!
I am back with my Day 4 cards for the 
My Favorite Things Summer Camp 2018.
Day Four was to use Complementary Colors, 
these are colors that are opposite on the color wheel.

I can always use Birthday cards, especially for my students at school. So I made 3 cards with complementary colors: Pink/Green, Teal/Orange and Blue/Orange (for all the Broncos Fans!).




For these cards, I used the My Favorite Things Make a Wish stamp set and dies. I used the patterned papers from Sugar Peas designs again to coordinate the colors and a Hero Arts Ombre ink pad for the flames. I kept them simple because you know, boys don't care for sparkle or sequins usually! :) 
Thanks for stopping by! 
Have an amazing day!



Hi Everyone!
Here I am again, sharing my card for day 3 of the My Favorite Things Summer Camp.
Day 3 was about using repetition on your card or project.
I decided to use word repetition on my card.


For this card, I used the Simply Fabulous Sayings stamp set and wanted to go with Purple, my favorite color. For the inks, I used different Altenew ink pads in purple. They create a wonderful Ombre effect. I stamped the "Awesome" sentiment six times then stamped and heat embossed the coordinating sentiment in silver on vellum. I added the panel to a purple card base then finished with some wink of Stella glitter pen and some iridescent sequins.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!

Hi Everyone! 
I am back with my card for Day 2 
of the My Favorite Things Summer Camp 2018.
The challenge or inspiration for Day 2 is Primary Colors.

Here is my card using the Beary Special Birthday stamp set 
and coordinating dies again.


I started with a white top folding A2 card base, I stamped the sentiment from the set on the bottom, making sure to leave room for the patterned paper strips I was planning to add to the left side of the card. I stamped and colored the bear and hat with copic markers, then I stamped the balloons and paper pieced them with dotted red, yellow and blue papers from Sugar Peas Designs. Then I added them to the card front and popped up the party hat. Finally, I added the paper strips to the left and finished with some Totally Lemon Trendy Twine.
Thanks for stopping by! 
Have a wonderful day!

Hi Everyone!! 
It's been awhile! 
Work and life have just kept me so busy, I haven't had much crafting time or blogging time but today I am back to share a card as a Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs. I used the newly released Wheek, Wheek, Wheek stamp set with some fun guinea pigs and sentiments.


I started the card by stamping and copic coloring the fun images from the Wheek, Wheek, Wheek stamp set (Aren't they adorable??). Next, I fussy cut them out. I die cut the pierced frame from some Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper by Lawn Fawn, then I arranged the cute guinea pigs in and outside the frame. I added the frame and images to a desert storm (Neenah) card base. Then I stamped the two sentiments from the set in versamark ink and heat embossed it in white. I added some gel pen details and glossy accents to a few places.

Hi Everyone!
Today, I am helping to wish the owner of Annie's Paper Boutique, Home of Trendy Twine,
**LESLEY**
a Happy, Happy Birthday!!!


I knew I wanted to include two things on Lesley's card, a coffee treat of some sort, even though she prefers the cold kind and PINK!
So I colored this sweet girl, Latte Lucy (C.C. Designs) with copic markers and paper pieced her dress in pink polka dots. Then I fussy cut her out and layered her on a die cut rectangle. Next, I used a paper stack that highlights all pinks, grays and mint green colors and followed a card sketch. I added some Watermelon Taffy Trendy Twine to the left side of the rectangle and added two heart buttons finished with a bow and knot. Then I die cut the 'happy birthday' 4 times to layer it and added some Spun Sugar distress ink to the top portion of the sentiment. I finished the card off with some Simply White crystal Nuvo drops and some Wink of Stella clear glitter to her hearts and headband.  
I hope Lesley just loves her card and has an amazing birthday!!

Hi Everyone! 
Today I am a Guest Designer for Die Cuttin Divas.

This week's Challenge is Random Act of Kindness
(Do Something Nice Day).

For my projects, I made some cards and matching tags to give to some fellow teachers, with some coffee cups filled with treats.



 The first set I used purple as my inspiration. I layered some purple die cut nesting hearts from some dies I purchased off Amazon. The smallest heart, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from a Hero Arts Kindness stamp set, popped it up and added some clear sequins and a little bit of Trendy Twine to match. Next, I die cut a heart tag from the Tiny Tags die set from Lawn Fawn and heat embossed a coordinating sentiment, then added it to the coffee cup I filled with some yummy treats.


The next card, I used the Peony Bouquet stamp set from Altenew and watercolored the flowers after I stamped and heat embossed them in clear. The sentiment is from the same Hero Arts Kindness set. I also die cut the panels from a Mama Elephant set for both cards. I finished the card with some wink of stella glitter brush pen on the flowers and some clear sequins. The tag is also from the Tiny Tags dies and stamped/heat embossed with the coordinating stamp set.

Hi Everyone!
Today I am sharing a project for Pink and Main stamps and dies.

I'm sad to say that this will be my last post as a Pink and Main Design Team member. I started a new full time job in August as a Middle School classroom monitor and I just don't have the extra time right now but I have really enjoyed the privilege of being part of the team.




Now onto my card, I used the new Autumn Blessings stamp set along with the coordinating Autumn Blessings die and Pumpkin Spice 6x6 paper pad.
I started with a dark brown card base, I die cut a cream colored panel with the Stitched Rounded Squares die and stamped the cute boy and girl mice and sentiment "When I count my Blessings I count you twice" all in brown ink. Next, I copic colored the mice and paper pieced the apron and cuffs of the girl mouse. I also stamped, colored and die cut the pie from the set for them to hold. To the card base, I added a panel of patterned paper from the 6x6 pad and also some orange patterned paper that is die cut from the Scalloped Border die and added to the bottom of the first panel. Next, I stamped the "Happy Thanksgiving" sentiment in brown ink to another strip of orange patterned paper and added it to the bottom after I put some coordinating twine on it. I also added a hand cut flag banner to the top left of the card also decorated with some twine.

Hi Everyone!
I hope you are having a wonderful week so far.
Happy First Day of Fall!! 
I am so ready for it this year.
Today, I am sharing a card inspired by the current My Favorite Things card sketch challenge #351.

For my card, I wanted to use two new products that I received recently. The cute Happy Hippos (MFT) and the Fairy Tales 6x6 paper (Doodlebug Designs).


I stamped and colored the two hippos with black ink, then colored them with copic markers. Next, I fussy cut them out. Then I used the Fairy Tales paper for the card layers. I used the Scallop Waves Die (Pink and Main stamps) and rounded the corners with a 1/2 in corner chomper (WRMK). Next, I stamped the sentiment in black ink and hand cut it out then layered it on some Orange cardstock (Bazzill) and foam mounted it. I die cut some balloons with the Birthday Balloons die (MFT) from some coordinating dotted patterned paper (The Paper Studio) and the strings from white card stock. Then, I added some white gel pen accents and finished the card off with some Lily White glitter sprinkles (Doodlebug Designs).


I was so excited to have a few moments to create a card and play along with the challenge.

For the card today, I used the new Llamas stamp set and coordinating Llamas die paired with the  Pumpkin Spice 6x6 paper pad. I started with a standard A2 card base made from kraft card stock. Then I die cut a Stitched Circle die from some brown patterned paper from the 6x6 pad, along with two coordinating strips. Next, I stamped the resting Llama in rich cocoa ink then in versamark ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder and colored the Llama with distress inks. Finally, I die cut the Llama with the coordinating die. I added all the layers to the card front and then stamped the sentiments from the same set, they are just so punny!! I finished the card with some gold sequins.

I am using the Fall In Love 4x6 stamp set,
so fun and perfect for all those fall cards and projects.

 
For the card, I started out with a cream colored top folding A2 card base made from 110# cream card stock from Recollections. I stamped the two separate leaves from the stamp set in three ink colors: Desert Storm (Memento), Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke (SU!) inks. Then I sponged the edges with the Crumb Cake Ink. Next, I stamped the cute squirrel couple on Crumb Cake card stock (SU) in Rich Cocoa ink (Memento) then colored them in with copic markers with some white color pencil accents, then fussy cut them out. Then I die cut a rectangle using the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles dies (MFT) out of crumb cake card stock and stamped the sentiment "Fall In Love" in rich cocoa ink as well as, the leaves then I popped up the rectangle on the card base with foam adhesive and the cute squirrel couple to finish off the card.

For the card today, I used the newly released Fall Bouquets stamp set and coordinating Fall Bouquets dies and Pumpkin Spice 6x6 paper pad. I started the card with a top folding A2 cream colored card base, then I picked two patterned papers from the 6x6 paper pad and the cream cardstock, layered them and die cut them out of the largest Stitched Rounded Rectangle die. Then I stamped the pretty flowers and bird from the Fall Bouquets stamp set in rich cocoa ink, then in versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, so that I could do some Distress ink watercoloring. When the image was dry, I die cut it with the coordinating die. Next, I stamped the "Thankful for you" sentiment with the rich cocoa ink on the layered panel. Then, I added some coordinating Trendy Twine to the panel and added fun foam to the back of the panel and adhered it to the card base. I finished the card with a few enamel dots.

Today I am sharing a card featuring a *NEW* Gerda Steiner Designs stamp set: Fall In Love.


For this card, I started with a crumb cake (SU!) side folding card base. I took another piece of crumb cake card stock and stamped the tree, leaves and sentiment all in Rich Cocoa ink (Memento) then copic colored the images. I also stamped the cute Owl couple from the set and copic colored them and fussy cut them out to pop up on the tree branch. I added a strip of chocolate chip card stock to the edge of the panel once I cut it down for the card front. I round the two corners then layered everything. I finished the card with some white prismacolor pencil accents and some glossy accents to the beak and feet.
