The Light You Shine

Good morning! I wanted to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. This week our challenge is all about summer. Here is the inspiration 

Here is what I created 

I decided to break open my SU set High Tide and create with it. I found some inspiration from a card on Pinterest. My card base is Whisper White and the next layer is started with Whisper White and then sponged the sky using Pacific Point and the sand using Sahara Sand and stamped the sand with Baked Brown Sugar. For the next layer I die cut the sun rays using the SU Thinlet and sponged with YoYo Yellow and added on top of the sky and sand layer and stamped the birds in the upper right hand side. Next I die cut a smaller stitched rectangle and sponged with Pacific Point and then stamped the sentiment on the right and the birds on the left and added this on top of the sun rays. To finish I stamped the lighthouse using my Misti and inks, Real Red and Stazon black. After stamping I fussy cut the lighthouse and added to the layer with the sentiment using pop dots. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Create A Life 

Good morning! What a beautiful day here in Northern Virginia. The temperature was mid 60’s when I woke up. I love mornings like this. I hope all the dads out there had a wonderful Father’s Day!

Today I am here to share my creation for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  We have a fun color challenge for you to play along with. Here is the inspiration 


I decided to make a tag for the challenge 


I started with a Manila file folder and used my TH tag dies to make a tag. After die cutting the tag I used SU Island Indigo and Colorbox Berry inks and sponged the background on front and back. I then stamped the lady using a set from Unity Stamp Co called She Never Says Never in momento luxe black and then clear embossed her. Next I took a piece of kraft cardstock and layered some lace and SU green ribbon and then attached it to the bottom of my tag. I stamped the sentiment from the Unity set on another piece of kraft and then fussy cut it and added using pop dots. To finish I used some silver metallic twine and tucked it in right behind the sentiment and added some more of the lace in the tag hole at the top. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Your A Classic

Good morning! Today I am sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. The Inspiration for this week is Masculine 


Here is my card

I used one of my older Stampin Up sets called Classic Pickups. My card base is basic black with the next layer in real red embossed with a diamond plate folder.  For the top layers I used basic black and cork distressed around the edges. I used a we r memory keepers corner chomper on all the corners. I stamped the truck and colored with my SU markers and then fussy cut and adhered to my card using pop dots. To finish I wrapped some twine around the top layers and then added my sentiment stamped and punched out with the designer label punch and then distressed the edges.

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.

Bunny Love

Good morning! I’m here to share our new challenge this week over at Stamp Ink Paper.  We have a fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for you to play along with!


I choose the middle horizontal row and this is what I came up with

One of my co-workers is battling cancer and currently doing Chemotherapy and Radiation. He is having a really rough time and a bunch of us ladies at work are putting together an Easter basket for him to help lift his spirits. I was ask to make a card for his basket. 

I started with a YoYo Yellow card base and then added a layer of Kraft and then a layer of patterned paper. I Die cut the basket with Kraft paper using a Gina Marie die. I created a strip of grass using green cardstock and my Stampin Up fringe scissors and layered it behind the basket. And then Die cut 3 egg shapes and colored with my SU markers and added them in the grass.  To finish the basket I tied a piece of yellow ribbon on the handle and then attached the basket to the card. Next I stamped the bunny from the Unity set Lil Wee Bunny and colored with my copic markers then fussy cut and attached to the card using a wobble.  To finish I typed the sentiment and printed on white cardstock and backed it on Kraft and added to my card above the bunny and basket. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hope you can play along with us this week!

Until next time

Be Inspired

Good morning! Today I am over at Stamp Ink Paper with our new challenge. This week we have a color inspiration challenge for you. 

This is what I was inspired to make

I used a concord crush card base with a layer of basic grey. The main layer is Whisper white. I masked off the center with an oval and sponged inside the oval with Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Concord Crush. Next I stamped the branches and flower with a set from I Brake For Stamps. I outlined the flowers in the branches with a while gel pen and colored the flower petals with a concord crush marker. To finish I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Until next time

Hats Off To You

Good morning! I’m here to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week.  This challenge is for shaker cards. How fun is that!!


And here is my shaker card


I used a black card base and matted with red and then another layer of black. For the top layer I used a white layer with a rectangle cut out for the shaker part. I stamped the sentiments and hat before using foam tape to border the inside of the rectangle to hold the sequins.  Super fun and quick card. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time
