Paper Smooches Guest Designer Search July


Just wanted to share a card today I made for the PS Guest Designer Search July.

I stamped several vegetables from Vegtastic and die cut them. I then colored a tomato with Copics.

These veggies are so cute to me, especially in the summer. I also really like the sentiments.

When I saw Let's Ketchup - that was the one for this card!

I kept this card simple by adding a little green twine from The Stamps of Life. I really wanted the tomato to be the focal point.

Thanks for stopping by!

My Favorite Things Camp Create Glitzy Glitter Day 5


My final cards with My Favorite Things Camp Create Glitzy Glitter Day 5!

I loved the inspiration video that was shown on Day 5 but I don't have lots of glitter. I decided to die cut some butterflies from Pixie card stock ( a light purple from The Stamps of Life) but before cutting I added Stick It adhesive to the front and back to make it a sticker.

I applied Dazzling diamonds glitter (stampin' Up) all over the front and burnished it onto the cut.

I cut two pieces of white card stock to 4 x 5.25 and quickly stenciled with Distress inks using Papertrey Ink stencils. I used Worn lipstick and Salty Ocean.

I stamped the sentiment with Lawn Fawn inks using Written in Watercolor. Love this big, bold stamp set. It really helps quickly fill a card front.

I added the butterflies and added one to a white card base; the other to a pixie card base.

This was such a fun challenge!!

My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 4: Sensational Sliders


Here is another card I created for Camp Create Day 4: Sensational Sliders.

I used the some the contents of my newest Paper Pumpkin to create this card. If you aren't familiar with this product, this is a monthly kit from Stampin' Up that includes stamps, ink and the items to create cards or treat bags, etc.

I stamped a watermelon and hand cut it since there is no die. 

I cut the slider hole with Lawn Fawn's Slide on over in the card base. The watermelon was added to a penny to slide. 

A banner was cut and stamped with It's Your day. I added the green sequins from Trick or Treat Pretty Pink Posh to finish it off! 

Thanks for stopping by!

I am entering this card in the SSS Monday Challenge Touchy Feely.

My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 3: Spectacular Shakers


Another card with My Favorite Things and Camp Create Day 3: Spectacular Shakers!

I used a kit to create the shaker card. It is from Queen and Company. They are so much fun. I added "diamonds" to the center of each butterfly. The paper was die cut with the coordinating Butterfly die that works with this kit.

It was adhered and the die cut - Many Thanks was added in light purple. I added clear wink of stella on the words. Finally, I glued down few sequins.

Sending Sunshine with My Favorite Things Camp Create


There is a bonus today:  Camp Create Bonus: Divine Dry Embossing!

I die cut a heart from a Stampin' Up heart framelit in Kraft. I dry embossed the word Sunshine from Papertrey Ink's Summer Still Life Mini kit. I stamped the word Sending in Melon Mambo ink.

The background paper was cut using the base from MFT Stamps Blueprints 26.

A light pink ribbon was tied on before adhering the paper to the Kraft card base and the heart was popped up in the center. I added some die cut hearts from MFT Stamps Blueprints 29.

There is still time to participate in Camp Create!

Have a great day!

Happy Father's Day


This Sunday is Father's Day and I am so grateful for my wonderful father, Frank, who has taught me so much about life.

I am also so grateful for my husband, Rob, the father of my two girls. We love him so much!!

I used my Misti and stamped the ties using different colors of markers. The sentiment was stamped with brown ink.

I die cut white card stock with Avery Elle Wonky Stitches to add some interest.

I am entering this card in the CASology # 253 Clothes Challenge.

My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 2: Remarkable Resist


Time for MFT Camp Create Day 2: Remarkable Resist!

Embossing is the first technique I ever learned in stamping and I have always loved it. It is easy and can really pack a punch on a card. I am excited to use that today for Camp Create.

I began with a piece of watercolor paper. I embossed stars from Primitive Pumpkins with Hero Arts White Puffy powder. It leaves a raised image and adds some nice texture.

I sponged Distress Blueprint Sketch and Candied apple on the top and bottom and left the middle white to resemble the colors of the American Flag.

Then I stamped the sentiment using Papertrey Ink Wet Paint Alphabet and Numbers on white card stock using Real Red and Night of Navy ink (Stampin' Up).

This was cut in a rectangle and I stamped a few more stars from the same stamp set.

Red and white twine were added last.

Thanks for stopping by!
