My Hearts Pleasure



Good morning! Today I wanted to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper . We have a Food & Drink theme for this challenge. Here is the inspiration

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge 146 Food & Drink

The timing for this theme couldn’t have been better as I had just received my new TIm Holtz blueprint stamps!

Here is what I created


I started with a kraft card base that I distressed the edges with walnut stain ink. The next layer is a piece of SU Cucumber Crush, also distressed with walnut stain. The top layer is a piece of kraft that I die cut using the Tim Holtz Cabinet Card die and then embossed using the Tim Holtz wood grain folder and then distressed with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain inks. Now for the fun part! I stamped the beer bottle and beer mug stamps on Bristol Smooth Vellum cardstock with Stazon black ink. I then watercolored using distress inks in Lucky Clover and Scattered Straw. Once they were dry I accented them with glossy accents and added white snow paste to the foam area on the mug. After they had set up I fussy cut them and added to my card using dimensionals. To finish I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock with Versamark and then hear embossed with white and added above the drinks using dimensionals.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂


Welcome Baby

Good morning!  Today is half way through my Growing In Unity week. Thank you so much to everyone who has stopped by and commented on my projects! For today I decided to make a card for a friend who will be having her first baby soon. 

I started with a Lost Lagoon card base and added a layer of polka dot dsp that I added a piece of yellow ribbon to. Next I took a piece of white cardstock and die cut the the inside mat and sponged with Lost Lagoon ink. I stamped the giraffes on Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth cardstock and colored with my copics and then fussy cut and added to the mat layer and used Glossy Accents on all the giraffe spots. While the glossy accents was drying I die cut the outside frame in orange cardstock and adhered to the mat layer using dimensionals. To finish I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock, fussy cut and sponged the edges with Lost Lagoon.

Botanical Blooms

Hello! I wanted to share a card I made with the new Botanical Blooms bundle from Stampin Up. This has to be my most favorite bundle from the Occasions catalog!

While exploring Pinterest for cards made with this bundle I came across a card made by Karen Barber that I wanted to case and this is my version.

I started with a Whisper White card base and stamped the flourish background in Blushing Bride with a Hero Arts stamp and then added a piece of Botanical Gardens dsp at the bottom. Next using the framelits I die cut the flowers in Blushing Bride, Old Olive and Punpkin Pie and the leaves in Old Olive. I coated the leaves with Glossy Accents and accented the flower stamens with a white gel pen and then added a bling to the center of each of the flowers. Next I arranged the leaves and flowers, glueing them down in the process. Next I stamped the sentiment from the set Rose Wonder in Stazon black ink in the center. To finish I added a strip of black satin ribbon at the top and then added a bow embellished with a Botanical gardens jewel.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my card.

Until next time

Happy Crafting
