NEW release…Simon Says Stamp Crafty Hugs Card

Hi everyone!  A card to bring a smile to your face from the Simon Says Stamp NEW Crafty Hugs release debuting today! Aren’t they adorable!

I stamped them with the MISTI and colored with Copics. Brown bunny I used E41, 42, 43,  Gray bunny I used W0, 01, 02, 03, Pink furniture I used RV13, 14, Cart I used BG45, 49, Ears and tongue I used R30, R32.  A little Broken China and Vintage Photo Oxide ink for the floor and wall to create a cute little craft room scene.

I don’t usually do pink furniture but it just seemed fitting for these cuties! Rainbow order color pencils and the cute little rolling cart!

The card ended up 5 ½ inches square.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I’ll link up below to what I used and to the new release!  Enjoy!

Memory Box Peony Garden Wreath Card…

Hi everyone!  I have a new Memory Box stamp and die set card to share today… just because.  Isn’t that a pretty script?  It’s hard to believe it’s Memorial Day weekend.  It looks like it’ll warm up here but still cloudy.  We’re getting anxious for some sunshine!  I guess the sunshine today is this bright Picked Raspberry Distress Ink color that I painted with!

I stamped the new wreath on watercolor paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Gold Embossing powder. I die cut with the coordinating die, then I watercolored with regular Distress Ink pad refills.  I just put a drop of the refill on my craft mat and pick it up with a wet paintbrush.  I did put water on the paper first so it was wet on wet.

I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled paint, Peacock Feathers and a little bit of Mowed Lawn ink refills for coloring the wreath.

I die cut white cardstock twice and used that to layer the wreath for a little depth instead of foam mounting tape.

I used Taylored Expressions Confetti Cake cardstock for the background square adhered to a white top fold cardbase. My card is 5 ½ inches square.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have some peonies in your life.  I’m glad I had these to color!

Simon Says Stamp Luck and Hugs Cards…

Hi everyone!  Simon Says Stamp sent me this stamp set to play with for their newest release ‘Sunny Days Ahead’!  I’m behind but working on catching up! I made two cards to share so be sure to scroll down for the second… 🙂

This set has a ton of images and sentiments! I stamped several in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, die cut them out and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.

I used a landscape A2 size white cardbase and stamped one of the border images directly on the base using the MISTI.

After coloring, using Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue, I adhered the flowers directly to the cardbase.  HUGS is adhered with foam mounting tape overlapping a little bit of the flowers.

A card to cheer I hope!

Next card will be a congrats graduation card…

I went clean and simple here…you know I love this style! hehe  I stamped and gold heat embossed good luck from the set, then die cut, popped it up with black mounting squares on a Taylored Expressions Oreo cardstock A2 size cardbase.  I stamped the little sentiment on white cardstock, trimmed it and layered it over the top with mounting foam on the left end and liquid glue on the right end.

This could work for so many occasions!  Such a fun set…some of the other sentiments… “Can’t wait to see you soar”, “You’re going to be Amazing”, “You’re going to rock this” and so many more!

I used Ranger Detail Gold embossing powder or maybe it’s called super fine.

Thank you so much for clicking over to see my post today!  A new release is coming soon so be watching!

Memory Box Happy Puzzle Letters and poppystamps Whittle Monkey Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  Long card today…3 ⅞ x 9…will fit in a #10 business size envelope.  These monkeys make me think… you too?  Monkeys jumping on the bed! haha

Happy Monkeys!  I used the Happy Puzzle Letters from the next to the last release from MB.  So cute with this poppystamps Whittle Monkey…the stitched detail makes it so easy to create a CAS card with.

I die cut the Happy die in five colors of Taylored Expressions cardstock and used all the letters by mixing them up and adding white gel pen dots.  I die cut five monkeys from TE Toffee cardstock, added a white gel pen dot on their cheeks, then mounted them with foam mounting tape to the card after I glued the Happys on the card front.

I wasn’t picky about what colors I used…a great way to use scraps! A cheerful, fun card!  On the inside I stamped ‘birthday’.  I forgot to take a picture of it but I’ll link the stamp set the birthday stamp came from below.

This will go to one of our grandkids I’m sure… thank you for stopping by today!

Spring Birthday Card with Distress Ink Coloring…

It’s been some time since I colored with Distress Ink Pad Refills.  I got the notion last week or was it the week before?!  ugh… time gets away from me.  Anyway, I finally finished her over the weekend and finally got some pictures taken to post.

The image is from hÄnglar Wings in Sweden. The stamps I own are unmounted rubber but they do have clear stamps now also!  So cute! I stamped her with Ranger Archival ink on Arches Hot Press Watercolor paper.

I color skin with Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo.  Her coat and hat are PIcked Raspberry and Dusty Concord.  Her jeans are Faded Jeans.  Her hair is Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.

I used a Hello Bluebird die for the tree background.  The grass die is from Lawn Fawn.  The little leaves are from an old CC Designs die that I cut up and glued on.

The sentiments are from Taylored Expressions Sentiment Strip stamps and die system.  Pretty cool and fun messages!

I hope she makes you smile!  Thanks for stopping by!

My Favorite Things All Star High Top Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  Still catching up with birthday cards!  This one was for our granddaughter Lilli!  I couldn’t make it exactly like her shoes but I caught one of the patterns anyway!  So cute!

Then the sweet daisies from Memory Box. Die cut in white and colored with Copics.

The paper I used for the shoes is an old pattern… really dates me… I think it was the first pattern paper company, Paper Patch…1995 ish!  lol

Happy Birthday is from a Taylored Expressions Bold Brushstrokes stamp set that I use a lot for the teen ages.  On the inside it says ‘you are totally awesome’ from the same set.

The detail in the High Top die is wonderful!  The eyelets look real!  So glad they brought this die back.  I was able to snag an old set but now everyone can get it!

Thanks for clicking over today!  Hope you enjoyed this cute card!

Waffleflower Tumble On Spinner Card…

Today I’m sharing one of the birthday cards I made for our oldest granddaughter Atalyssa, aka Attie.  She is an amazing gymnast so I had to use this new at the time Tumble on set from Waffleflower.  Sooo fun!

This party was for five of our grandkids and Lizzie, who’s birthday is the day before Attie’s planned a Masquerade party.  It was so much crazy fun!  😀

Here’s Attie making her card spin…

Fortunately she was able to get a few competitions in this year and we’re so proud of her!  All around 2nd place at this one.  YAY Attie! (she’s the girl that looks like she’s behind the number one block)

Here’s the card sliding by itself.  There was a gal on Instagram that shared her card for Waffleflower and I basically copied her.

I stamped, die cut, colored and paper pieced her leo with black glitter cardstock.

I gave her a wood floor and brick wall because of the gym she goes to.

Thanks for stopping by to see this cutie in action!
