I haven’t played with the Gina K monthly challenge in a long time. Well I needed a card for my sweet daughter who just hit her one year mark on her mission! So I pulled out this beautiful seashell set by Gina K and got crafty
The challenge this month is to do the technique where you splatter water on ink and it reacts. It makes a really cool splashed-on look!
I stamped and embossed the seashells (and seaweed) all in white. Then I colored on the back sides of them with copics.
I carefully put precision glue along the embossed lines of the seashells to adhere them to the blended and splattered background
With a few embellishments, my card was complete. My daughter is going to love it! I’m excited to mail it off to her. It’s headed down to Uruguay!
Thanks for stopping by to check it out. See you again soon!
Have you got some of the goodies from the new Reverse Confetti release? They are so darling and perfect for not just your Valentine cards – but so much more! Today’s card is one I made for their current Stock Your Stash challenge
I used the new Hello Daisy bouquet to make a sweet Springtime card
I colored the bouquet with Copics
I then mounted it on to the Postal frame Confetti Cut
The “love you always” is from the Valentine’s Sentiments stamp set. With this all put on to a soft green card, my sweet Spring card is all done
Pull out your Reverse Confetti supplies and play along with the challenge this month for your chance to win $20 to the Reverse Confetti store!
Today starts a new challenge over at Double Trouble! Check out the fun twists this time around
THREE patterned papers? That’s what Thing 1 wants and it sounded like a way different idea. But it’s sure turning up some cute cards! And as I pulled mine together, I realized it was a pretty fun and different look!
That sketch makes it very easy to figure out how to use the 3 pattern papers!
Thing 3 wants to see a penguin! There are so many darling penguin images out there in the stamping world. I’m excited to see them all in the gallery, so I hope you’ll pull out one of yours and use it on your card. My cute little penguins are from a SugarPea Designs stamp set
I think the red and white and black went perfect for this little image. The mini slim size was fun to incorporate into the sketch as well. It’s always fun to see how I can adapt challenges to create a design! Head over to Double Trouble to see more details. Then play along and enter your card there and at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful week!
Hello! Today I have a soft and simple card featuring a new-to-me product – layering stencils!
This wreath is made using the English Garden layering stencils and die by PinkFresh Studio. If I had stamped the stamps first, and then layered the stencil on over it, it would color them perfectly. But today I just wanted to see how it would look stenciled without the images stamped. I love it! It’s such a subtle look
I am playing along with their monthly challenge to pick a challenge from last year to create with. I just the November “Wreaths” prompt because, as you’ve probably noticed, I’m really in to wreaths right now! In my home decor as well as my card designs
The Prayers sentiment is a Hero Arts die. And while I had it out, I cut a whole bunch because I always want to share a prayer 🙂
With a few sequins placed in the wreath, my card was finished, and I’m in love with yet another wreath! (PinkFresh has some REALLY good ones! I’m falling in love with their fabulous products all over again lately!)
Thanks for stopping by today and I’ll see you again soon!
Happy Reverse Confetti Release Day! Time to pull out your wish list and get them added to your cart over there so that they can get into your creative hands!
I have 2 cards for you today using these fun products. The first is with Love Bugs! You saw this adorable set on the first day of sneak peaks. I just had to keep playing with it and I also used another fun product that is in this release – Lovely Tag
You can see that cute Valentine’s Sentiments set again there with the Happy Valentines Day
My second card is a die-cuts-only card! No stamps on this one!
This release has got some great Confetti Cuts
I used the Postal Cover, Large Circle of Hearts, and, Layered Lots of Love
I love it when sentiment dies have the frame die with them! It makes for some extra fun things you can do. I like how bold it turned out on my card on top of the Large Circle of Hearts
What’s on your wish list and what will you be adding to your cart very first? I’d love to know! Head over to Reverse Confetti to get it going!
Look at this fabulous list to go hop along and see wonderful projects! Thanks for visiting me throughout this release and I hope to see you more! I’ve got lots of fun cards coming up 🙂

Today we are featuring “Hello Daisy”
I did a watercolor resist technique for my card and this stamp looks beautiful with it!
I love the hello confetti cut that comes with the flower outline die. It makes it so nice to put the simple sentiment over the top of the bouquet of flowers
This is definitely one of those cards that are so much prettier in person! But this floral bouquet full of happy daisies is just so lovely! I’ve got another card coming up with it that I can’t wait to share. This is going to be a fabulous set for Spring!

This set is called Poppies and has such a funky retro feel and I love it!

It’s called Stitched Daisies and I love how it doesn’t cut through – just gives a subtle stitched floral background to my card for interest!

Hi stamping friends! Today I decided to stretch myself with a color that I rarely use – purple. I just don’t seem to grab for it and when I do, I often feel like it’s too bright. But Color Hues posted a challenge that prompted my thought to give it a try again and to put it with purple!
I chose a rosy colored shade of red and a lighter more orchid color of purple to focus on
I used the amazing set by Pink Fresh Studio called Blossoms and Berries. It’s so incredible! It’s one huge long clear stamp with lots of images on it. And then the coordinating die is one big thing that cuts them all out at once! I absolutely love it. And because you get so many images out of one pass through the die cut machine, there’s plenty to make 2 cards, which is what I did today here.
I actually loved the way this rosy red and lighter purple look together! I may possibly even feel like maybe I could try the deeper shades of both after having done these cards! I love the wreath card but I think the first one is my favorite with the florals in the corners
And now I have 2 birthday cards ready to grab! I always need those in a pinch
And now I have a new color combo I like! Thanks for stopping by to visit. I’ll be back tomorrow with a peak at something fun!!
Hey all! It’s an exciting time over at Double Trouble Challenge blog! It’s challenge #100 and you’ll want to jump in and participate in a couple different ways
First, Thing 1 has us getting snuggly! Layers layers layers! And we need those in real life here – it’s freezing where I am at! I got very layery with my card by using different paper, die cuts and and textures
I used this cute Lawn Fawn set full of hugging and snuggling critters called “Happy Hugs”. My color scheme was based on the colored hearts on the background paper that came from my stash. It got me out of my norm and I love when something can do that! It’s one of the reasons I love Double Trouble so much – it really stretches everyone to think of new ideas beyond what they usually do
Thing 3 wants to see “warm and cozy” – pick something that’s fun to snuggle up with!! When I started thinking of my favorite, my husband is at the top of the list! I like to snuggle him most. So these darling little critters that show they are cuddling = perfect
For this challenge, we are partnering with “Bitten by the Bug“. They love to see pieces that are cut with cricut! But while partnering with us, they make a deal that it can be any cut other than fussy cut. So pull out those cricuts, dies, and punches and use those elements on your card! Be sure that you enter your card with them as well
One more fun thing you will want to know about this special 100th challenge – we are each giving away some blog candy! To be eligible, you must comment on our 100th challenge blog posts. Each of us will pick one winner from our commenters to send something fun to! More details about all of this fun can be found over at Double Trouble so head there to read more
I absolutely love being part of the Double Trouble design team. Their challenges are so much fun and stretch each of us past our normal ways of making cards and gives such fun little ideas to add to the challenge! If you haven’t tried these challenges out yet, this one is a great one to start with!
Thanks for stopping by to see my card and we hope to see YOUR card in our gallery!
