You’re always in my heart

Hi again today everyone! So many fun things going on in the stamping world, I can scarcely keep up!

Have you seen the new challenge up over at Double Trouble?

Thing 1 is calling this a sweet color challenge and wants to see you pic 3 of the colors in graphic number 1. All those gumdrops are happy colors so it was very easy to decide! I picked the pink, orange and minty colors

I did the watercolor resist over this fun heart made of flowers by Catherine Pooler

Which brings us to the next thing. Thing 3 wants to see a heart or hearts! I used this cute big heart but also used a sentiment that says heart in it too

Thing 2 has us partnering with Inspiration Station who has the challenge “I heart you” going on right now. So if you take Thing 3’s challenge of including a heart, go add it to the Inspiration Station as well! We love our challenge partners

Thank you for stopping by and we hope you will play along with these fun twists by Double Trouble!

Head over there for more details to play along


Bugs and Kisses

Have you had the chance to get your hands on the fabulous goodies from the January release over at Reverse Confetti? Isn’t it full of such cuteness?!! Today we are having an inspiration hop with some more projects using these great products.

My card today features the Stitched Daisy Confetti Cut cover panel and the darling Love Bugs stamp set with coordinating dies

I used colors that would make this a fun Valentine or else it could even be just a card to send with love to anyone

I also used the Large Detailed Circle frame as the piece to put my cute butterfly focal point on. I love that Confetti Cut!

A clean and simple card with sweet details to give it great interest because of the cute Reverse Confetti products

Follow along this inspiration hop to see some more awesome projects from these fabulous designers! Thanks for stopping by to see mine today.

Inky Hugs!

We go together

Today’s card goes along with 2 different challenges that caught my eye this week. We’ve got Color Hues asking for cards made with red and black

I created a little salt and pepper shaker that are a cute little couple

I’ve had this Lawn Fawn set for a long time and haven’t pulled it out in forever! But I was inspired to because of the 2nd challenge cue that I saw by Retro Rubber Challenge Blog

It’s been awhile since I played along with Retro Rubber but they are one of my favorites! So it was time to jump in again and pull out an old set.

The dry embossing on the vertical banner is also an oldie but a goodie in my embossing folder stash. So happy to pull these things back out and give them use!

And a fun little Valentine is finished! Thanks for stopping by to see it!


You are so special to me

It’s time for an “Anything Goes” challenge over at Double Trouble! This is always a favorite!

Thing 2 and 3 have some fun twists to put out there to try on your card. Thing 3 wants to see anything but an A2 regular card. There are so many fun options with this! Shaped card, slimline, A7 large card, note care, etc.

I chose to do a slimline cuz I’m just crazy about them

Thing 2 always has a double dare! This time around it is to partner up with another challenge blog that we’ve partnered with before. I chose Try Stampin on Tuesday which is one I like to jump in on every now and then!

I LOVE challenges so when I see these kind that say to use one or the other or both – I choose both!!

I used shades of pink for my monochromatic color and the flowers are positioned in the spots that the ovals show on the sketch

I used stamps and dies by Simon Says Stamp as well as PinkFresh Studio.

I wish you could see the beautiful Wink of Stella pen that I added to the flowers and the hearts die. It glimmers so pretty! The lighting just didn’t catch it though. The recipient will love it though!

Head over to the Double Trouble Challenge blog to see more details about joining along for this challenge, as well as the linky to add your creation! We just love to see what you create with the twists given

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope your week has started out fabulous!


For my beautiful daughter

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!

Love is in the air!

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!

Happy Valentines Penguins

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!

Thing 1 would also like to see you try out her optional twist of using the Try Stampin on Tuesday sketch

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!


PinkFresh Prayers

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!


Reverse Confetti Release Day! Two Cards!

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 🙂

Reverse Confetti Sneak Peek Day 3 + hop!

Happy Day 3 of the Reverse Confetti sneak peeks! These goodies will be available tomorrow!

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!

So happy you stopped by! Be sure to leave a comment for your chance at a $15 Gift Certificate to the Reverse Confetti store! You can also head to their Facebook page for a chance at another one!
