Happy Monday and happy February! I’m always excited to hit February. It means Spring is coming soon, I get to celebrate my wedding anniversary, have a fun valentine tradition with my family and move more out of the cold!
Thing 1 says that Love is in the Air! You can make this a Valentine project or not, but let’s see the love
I used the stamp set by Altenew “Way too sweet” with its coordinating dies. Over the last few years I’ve made several Valentine cards and I just don’t seem to use them much! I still have a stack. So i decided to go with a card centered around love and sweetness – but not Valentines themed
I’m so excited to share a card today using gorgeous new dies by Tim Holtz!!
The moment I saw these “Brushstroke flowers mini” dies, I knew I had to have them right away!
The Flower Challenge is back after taking a break and it’s one of my favorite because floral stamping is my favorite! Their theme this time around is to use your latest stamps and dies! Perfect timing for these gorgeous dies to get to me
I cut out a bunch of the flowers on white card stock, inked them up with Distress Oxides, distressed the edges and arranged them all on the two tags and panel
I added some little pieces of frayed burlap for dimension and texture. I love all the interest on this one!
I could make many cards using this prompt by The Flower Challenge because I’ve gotten lots of new things over the last few months. But these floral dies are my absolute favorite!
Thanks for stopping by to check my card out! I’ll see you back here soon.
I used products by Spellbinders for this card. The flower dies are called “Beeblossom”. That pretty rectangle die is from the “Candlewick Rectangles” set. The hopeful stamp is from an old set called “Be/So Hex”
Lots of people who could definitely use a message to stay hopeful in life right now! Thanks for stopping by to see my card today. Excited to head in to the weekend!
The new challenge at Double Trouble starts today and it’s recipe time!
Thing 1 wants to see you use this 3-2-1 recipe
3 colors 2 layers 1 cuddly image
These sweet foxes hugging looked so cuddly to me! The 3 colors I used are from Thing 3’s dare- too create with the 3 colors from the challenge over at Color Dare. Desert Rose, peach, and sage (as close as you can get to those).
The stamps and dies I used are from MFT and the pretty embossing folder is by Spellbinders
Today I have a card to celebrate a new baby girl and what a sweet thing to celebrate!!
I used the Lawn Fawn Little Bundle stamps and dies for this one. I’m really going to strive to dig into my huge stash this year and use it! This sweet set hasn’t been loved on in a long time and it was so fun to use again
I loved the color and medium combo that I used on my last card so much that I just couldn’t put it away! So I decided to make one more card with it
I just can’t get enough of how pretty the Seaspray Nuvo mousse looks with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide!
I used the set Holly Jolly as well as the mini wreath builder by Gina K to stamp some different snowflakes. I did a mixed media style for this one and I love how it turned out!
I’m entering this one in a challenge that is new to me! I found The Four Seasons challenge through another crafter’s blog and knew I wanted to play along. Their current theme is Winter and Anything Goes.
Thanks for stopping by to check it out! I have a Reel over on Instagram on it coming together so head there next to see a quick glimpse of the fun process this card was
This is a fan favorite – Something Anything Everything! So Thing 1 wants to see whatever you create. But Thing 3 wants to give the optional twist to use at least one stencil.
I used a dot stencil with some Seaspray Nuvo mousse. It goes perfectly with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink, which is the background color
As always, Thing 3 would like to challenge you to partner up with a previous partner. But today, we are highlighting one challenge blog in particular – Heart2Heart. They have decided to end their challenges, so this is the last one. They are going with “A few of my favorite things” as a theme. For me, snowflakes are definitely a favorite!! Both in real life as well as with stamping
The beautiful Snowflake on my card is from the Close to my Heart stamp set, “Christmas Snowflake Mandalas”. I embossed it on vellum, fussy cut it, and attached it to my blended and stenciled background
I made my card a simple “Just a Note” theme because I like to have a card to send for any occasion. This is perfect to give during winter!
We hope you will join us and show us your creations! And if you want to join Heart2Heart one last time, their challenge ends in only a couple of days, so head there to link your project quickly.
Hello again! Today’s project is a set of tags that I made to add to neighbor gifts. I’m playing along with the challenge over at Crafting Happiness which is to make a Christmas project!
These tags were so fun!! I used the new KatScrappiness Christmas paper, her mini slimline dies, Build a bow dies, and the Christmas foliage die set to bring these all together
Each one is a little different but they all coordinate so cute!! I’m especially loving the bow dies!!! I was having so much fun making lots of them
I have to point out how awesome the pattern paper by KatScrappiness is – its thick, shiny, and such high quality!! I love the traditional Christmas colors of this pack too.
Making these was a reminder that it is really fun and efficient to have a few specific products and colors out and then make multiple projects using just those! Similar look, but all just a bit different
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
