Thank you bouquet

Did someone say bouquet?! I love floral arrangements! I’ve done a few weddings and the latest was my own daughter’s in December. I love it!

So when I saw that the latest Inspired By challenge said bouquets, I was in!

I used Spellbinders Bouquets of Flowers dies to make my bouquet

The circle tag behind it is from Pinkfresh Studio and the embossing folder is an older one by Stampin Up! that I haven’t used in forever

Whether it’s with paper or with floral, I love making bouquets and flower arrangements!

Thanks for stopping by to see this one today

Good Luck!

Happy Monday! Here’s the new challenge for Double Trouble

Thing 1 wants to see mostly green this time around. Perfect for St Patrick’s day cards!

I used stamps and dies by SugarPea Designs. I’m curious what happened to that company! I never saw word that they closed or anything but I haven’t seen them in forever. They sure had cute stuff!

Thing 3 wants to see something with plaid on your card. I used stencils to lightly shade and water color a soft plaid onto my panel.

And Thing 2 has us partnering with Inspiration Station using their Inspiration photo!

I see green and nature and based my card off of that with the sweet little critters

We hope to see you play along with this challenge to start our March off green! Be sure to head to Double Trouble for all the details

Thanks for stopping by!

Set of floral Sympathy cards

Happy Saturday! I did something I haven’t done in a while – I made a card set. Usually, I just make one card and clean up. This time, I kept going and just did a few more while I was at it.

I used stamps and dies by Catherine Pooler for these. They were “Typed Up Sentiments” and “Beautiful Beginnings”

The Typed Up Sentiments has so many good images for when you want to send thoughts, prayers, hugs, etc!

I’m playing along with the Stamp Nation challenge to make a card using Floral

I was inspired to make sympathy cards because of the challenge over at Tic Tac Toe

Asc you can see, each card is just a little different – either with the arrangement of floral and/or the colors used on each one

I added Wink of Stella to the flowers on this one. If you look close, you can see it in this pic

I think of all of them, this one is my favorite though

Thank you for stopping by to check these out! See you again soon

Sending Smiles

Hello and happy Monday! We have a fun new challenge over at Double Trouble and Thing 3 is highlighting my favorite kind of cards with her twist- use floral

But first, let’s say what Thing 1 wants to see – fun folds! I did a little variation on the buckle style card

I used 2 different die cuts – both from Stampin, Up! to create this fun buckle fold

After using a small rectangle die (usually used for cutting out a sentiment) to cut a slit in the left die, the little corner of the right die tucks right in perfectly

The cute floral dies are by Spellbinders and the 3 coordinating pattern papers are from an old Stampin’ Up! stash

I added matching ribbons and some white dot accents to finish it off

What fun fold can you come up with? We’d love to see your creations! And if you make a card with a fun fold, Thing 2 has us teaming up with the Creative Creations blog. Be sure to share there too!

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card today. I’ll see you again soon!

Missing You

Hello friends! Today, I’m sharing a card using some of my favorite products by Simon Says Stamp

I was totally inspired by the beautiful color palette in the challenge over at Color Throwdown

I just love these colors together!

As I started planning my card, I couldn’t quite figure out how I wanted to lay it out. Then i see the sketch at Atlantic Hearts and was inspired again!

I used these sets by Simon Says Stamp – “Delicate Flowers”, and “Cozy Wishes”. In the ripped border to the left, I also used the “Filigree Border” by Simon

I’m such a sucker for bird houses! And these are such cute ones in this set!

I filmed this one as it came together. Be sure to go check out the Reel on my Instagram!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Way too sweet

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!

And today starts a new fun challenge at Double Trouble

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

When trying to come up with an idea, I saw another challenge that got my creativity rolling – the “Inspired By” challenge.

I loved the bright colors and the candy theme! And that’s where my card idea started

The layout comes from the challenge by Thing 3, which is to use this Sketch from Try Stampin On Tuesday

The cute cross stitch die, as well as the circles, are from KatScrappiness

With all these fun ideas and products coming together on my card, I loved the way it turned out!

If you play among with us at Double Trouble and use the sketch by Try Stampin On Tuesday, take the Double Dare by Thing 2 and go enter it there too!

I am also going to enter my card into a new challenge I just learned about – Park Hopping! Disney is known for their good sweets, so the collection of sweets on my card matches that too. I’m excited to follow this new challenge!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card for today!

Thanks so much

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.

It seems everyone is in the cold right now! Which creates just the mood to play along with The Four Seasons challenge which is “Anything Goes-Winter”

They have this mood board as a starter for inspiration and I was definitely inspired by it!

I loved the ice skates, all the white, and just the wintery feel! This is how my card turned out

I loved the pop of red in the inspiration photo but didn’t end up adding any to my card

I used a few different sets of dies – all by Spellbinders. They were “Sketched floral and frame”, “Winter Welcome sled”, and “Petite Floral Potpourri”. I love how they all go together so well!

I left it without a sentiment because I love having cards to grab for anything!

This will be a fun one to write a little winter note in

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Today I have a mixed media card to share. I’m playing along with the Simon Says Stamp challenge, which is “Beautiful Blooms”

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!

Today is your birthday

Hello! Double Trouble has a new challenge starting today!

Let’s start with the idea by Thing 1 – stitches! Let us see stitching on your project. I used a stitched arch die and a stitched edge panel die for mine. Both by MFT

And now the twist by Thing 3 – use a mythical character! I chose garden gnomes. These little guys have sure become popular in crafts, decor, etc! I love these images by Catherine Pooler

Speaking of Catherine Pooler – over on Stamp Nation, they challenged us to use a non birthday stamp set to make a birthday card. This one will be perfect for my best friend who loves to garden!

If you used a mythical or magical creature on your card, Thing 2 would like you to link up with our challenge partner, too! This time around, we played with The Fairies and the Unicorns Challenge

I had so much fun making this card. It took more coloring time than I’ve done in a long time! I used Zig Clean Color markers for all of it, and I love the way it turned out❤️

Thank you for stopping by and have a happy weekend!
