Stamp Ink Paper 100th challengeĀ 

Good morning! I am sharing my card today for our 100th challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  I can’t believe how quickly this milestone came up!! To celebrate we are going to be giving away some blog candy. All you need to do is enter a card into the challenge and for more entries to win you can comment on each of the design team members blog posts. This challenge is a Card Makers Choice and here is the inspiration 


This is what I created 


I love to make masculine cards so that’s what I choose to do. I used a technique called the Double Z Joy Fold card. My card base is Stampin Up Night of Navy and the first panels are Baked Brown Sugar.  The top panels are Whisper White  and I used the Hardwood background stamp and the set called Walk In The Wild.  The main panel is done with watercoloring. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! 

Until next time 

Happy Crafting šŸ™‚

Monster Birthday

Good morning! I don’t know about you but I am so enjoying this cooler weather we are having here in Northern Virginia. Those days won’t be around much longer! 

Today I wanted to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week our challenge is Kids Birthdays. How fun is that?? 


This is what I created 


I started my card with a Baked Brown Sugar card base. On the right hand side I stamped the splatters using the Gorgeous Grunge set with chocolate chip ink. I then added a piece of green raffia about 1 1/2 inches from the left side. Next I took a piece of whisper white cardstock and cut it to a 2 1/2 x 5 1/2 panel and then stamped the 3 monsters using the Make A Monster stamp set. I colored them using my SU markers and then distressed the panel using TH Vintage Photo Ink. I added this panel just to the left of the green raffia and then added a piece of rainbow colored ribbon to the left side of the stamped panel. For the sentiment I punched out 1 cut using the Modern Label punch in Whisper White and then cut it in half and stamped happy on one piece and Birthday on the other. I inked the edges of both and then added them to my card sliding them just under the raffia and making sure the Birthday one was out further to give it that staggering look. I added enamel dots to each of them, one brown and one pink. To finish I took a piece of green grosgrain ribbon and placed below the birthday sentiment and using a hot glue gun created a ripple effect by making a loop and glueing in between each loop and then finished with a button embellishment. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Mothers Day Card

Good morning! I’m sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  Mothers Day will be here before you know it. I can’t believe it’s May already! So this challenge will help you get those Mother Day cards done a little early

Here is your inspiration  


Here is the card I made 


I started my card with a Strawberry Slush base. For the next layer and the banners I used an MME pad called Market. I distressed all the edges with an old pair of scissors and then inked with Vintage Photo.  I adhered the 3 banners together and tied a piece of ribbon with a bow around them and then added this to the large layer of Market paper and then adhered it all to my card base. Next I stamped the the girl using an image from a retired Unity KOTM onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth premium cardstock and colored her using my Copics.  I then die cut her out using a stitched oval die from Gina Marie.  I distressed the edges with Vintage Photo and then added her on top of the banners. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time 

Happy Crafting:)
