Birdie Card

Hiya Stampers!

Today’s card is a super simple stampin’ card. Stampin’ Up! is doing a #simplestamping challenge and this month’s theme is Valenetine’s Day.

I am also including this in another challenge. Over at Global Design Project they gave us this image to CASE:


I used the same stamp set as she did:


I used two stamp sets for my card with one layer. Here’s another view:


As you can see, this card is really simple….just stamping! I stamped off on the branches a couple of times here and there, but that’s it, easy peasy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, thank you so much for stopping by, have a very blessed week ahead โค

Playing with Butterflies

Hi Stampers!

I hope you all have been well. We’ve been sick in our house lately. As soon as one starts feeling a bit better, then another one gets sick…..the joys of a big family, gotta share everything, lol ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hopefully it’s moving on now.

Anyways, I was just playing with the new Beauty Abound Bundle….love it! Here’s what I came up with:


I cut out twice in vellum and twice in cardstock and then alternated them to place one on top of each other. This die set it huge!


I decided to use the negatives from the cardstock piece. Using ink, just made a quick watercolor look on the main butterfly to give it some interest. For the cluster on top of each butterfly, I used some retired elements and embellishments from my stash!


Here’s some close up shots:



The rose centers were cut from some rose ribbon that SU! used to sell. I watercolored them with ink, I really miss these and have one pack left so I tend to hoard them, lol!

Well, thank you so much for stopping by and have a blessed day โค

A Challenging Card

Hiya Stampers!

I hope you had a blessed Christmas!!!! We did ๐Ÿ˜‰

The title to this card is exactly how I feel about it, lol! It was a challenge from start to finish and took three days to complete, don’t let the simpleness of it’s looks fool you, lol! It’s for two challenges. The first challenge is a fun color combo challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers. Here’s the colors they gave us to work with:


I originally stamped onto WW and embossed the image thinking I would use Blends…..but I decided to use watercoloring instead. That’s one reason it was a challenging card, but it’s my fault for not restamping onto watercolor paper to make the job of coloring a bit easier….here’s what I came up with:


The next challenge was over at Global Design Project. Here’s the fun sketch they gave us for inspiration:


This stamp set has a matching framelit set that goes with it. After stamping and coloring I went to diecut it…..that’s where the other challenge came into play. I didn’t use washi tape to help make sure it didn’t shift during cutting which I usually do and you guessed it, it shifted! So, I had to fussy cut some areas and chop off some of the leaves cause they had holes in them, lol! Again, my fault…’s not like I don’t know these things, ugh!!!!!

Here’s a close up:


I almost threw this away and started over, I was just so frustrated…..we all have those crafting fails. But in the end, nobody would ever know… never give up, you never know how the end result will be ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s another view:


I used white on white, so you might not be able to see the sketch as is that way, so I dry embossed the white panel and added the lattice die cut to help differentiate it from the white base. I also wasn’t for sure if the ribbon would be Okay to replace the strip in the original sketch but after looking at some of the other samples, I decided to give it a go.

Well, thank you so much for stopping by and have a safe and happy new year!!!! โค


Global Design Project #169

Hiya Stampers!

Long time no post ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sorry…life gets in the way, you know how the holidays can be…..

Here’s my take on it:


I used some new goodies from 2019 Occasions Catalog.

Here’s a close up:


I used some retired Pool Party Baker’s Twine from my stash. Here’s another view:

White Christmas with pop of Red

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

I hope you all have been doing good. Sorry it’s been awhile, you know how it goes… and with Thanksgiving it’s been a bit busier. I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving with friends & family!

Today’s card is not for any challenges. Just something that I wanted to try out. It’s a conglomeration of lots of white cardstocks with a pop of color…..hence the title, lol ๐Ÿ˜‰


I dry embossed the white naturals cardstockย  and made it a shaker card. I filled it with snowballs and white fine glitter from my stash.


I inked up the deer with the shimmer paint, let it dry overnight then sponged the red over top after die cutting it out.


I used some glitter tape from my stash to die cut out one of the snowbanks. Then I added some shimmery embossing paste over the top. After drying over night I glued it on top on the other snowbank.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend is a blessed one โค


Blueberry Christmas Tree

Hiya Stampers!

Long time no post, lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sorry, life gets in the way sometimes of my crafting fun. Cest-la-vie :0

Today’s card is for the color challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers! Here’s the fun color combo they gave us:


Here’s my take on it:


I did use some retired Cherry Cobbler ribbon, love it! I added the dessert option which was to add sparkle to your project. I added Wink of Stella splatters and Shimmery White embossing paste.

Here’s a close up:


I also added two pearl decorative pins in the ribbon from my stash to finish it off. I added dimensions under each pop out tree branch……on this angle that I took this particular pic you can see it peeking out, but you don’t see them otherwise ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s another view:


I just noticed that you can see the splatter on the ribbon too, lol! I actually had to do two coats of the shimmery white paste for good coverage, it made it super thickย  and dimensional. I used the Thinlits from the now retired Blended Seasons bundle. I thought it really made a difference in the way the card turned out.

Anyways, thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend โค
