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 

Happy Crafting 🙂

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

SIP Color Challenge #86

Good morning and Happy Valentine’s Day! I wanted to share our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper for this week.  It’s a color challenge with some beautiful spring colors 


I love these colors! It makes me wish spring was here now. I decided to make a tag for this challenge. 


I started with a Manila tag and covered the front with some paper from the MME Handsome Boy paper pad.  This pad was perfect because it had all the colors in the challenge. Next I cut a piece of yellow canvas material and added it at angle and then layered the cloud background paper from the same paper pad.  Now for the fun part! I stamped the Julie Netting girl from the set For You onto white cardstock. I colored in her hair, face, arms and legs using my Copics. I stamped her again on another piece of paper from the MME paper pad and fussy cut the dress and paper pieced to the first image. I colored her head band, belt and shoes with a black copic marker and then added glossy accents. Once that dried I add her to my tag on the cloud background. I took 3 white flowers I had in my stash and sprayed them with yellow, orange and teal and added to my tag using hot glue.  For the charms I used a Tim Holtz pin and added a bronze metal feather and cameo. To finish I added a piece of lace through the tag hole. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Love You Much

Good morning! Hope your enjoying the beginning of this beautiful day. I wanted to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  With Valentine’s Day nearing we have a Love challenge for you this week 


Here is the card I created 


I pushed myself out of my comfort zone for this card. I’m not a real mushy kind of person but I wanted to make a more traditional Valentine’s card. 

I started with a pretty in pink card base.  I used a heart border punch and created the border on the right side of the card front. Next I cut two mats, one in real red and one in white and rounded all the corners. I layered the white on top of the red and added to my card and then stamped the sentiment from the set Love You Much in real red ink. I added one of the pink hearts and outlined it with Stickles. 

Here is the inside 


I added a piece of real red cardstock to the right side so it would show through the open hearts from the front. To finish I matted the inside white white and stamped the sentiment and added hearts. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. 

Until next time

Happy Crafting:)

SIP Challenge #84 Tic-Tac-Toe

Good morning!  Today I’m sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week we have a fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for you. Here is the inspiration 


I choose the diagonal row with Die Cut, Circular Element and Sequins. 

Here is the card I made 


I know Christmas is gone and past but I couldn’t resist coloring up this cutie from The Greeting Farm.

For this card I choose to make a 5×5 card. I started with a Pacific Point card base and then a layer of Real Red.  For the next layer I used a piece of Whisper White and stamped several snowflakes and then distressed with Marina Mist ink.  Next I die cut one of the large circle scallops in Basic Black and looped a piece of Poppy Parade stitched ribbon through two of the scalloped holes and then wrapped around the white and red layers.  For the main piece I die cut a Stitched circle out of Whisper White and stamped the girl, Holiday Anya 2 from The Greeting Farm, and colored her in with Copics. To finish I stamped a couple snowflakes and added some sequins. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Until next time 

Stay warm and Happy Stamping 🙂

Love That Face

Good morning! I hope you are warm and comfy on this blistery cold day. The reality of Winter has set in and I am ready for spring.

I wanted to share with you today our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  We have a color challenge for you to play along with and here is the inspiration

For my card I choose to add the color red


I started with a Whisper White card base and added a layer of black. The next layer is a piece of red canvas that I frayed on the edges. Next I took the image from the Unity set Love That Face and stamped her on Whisper White using StaZon black ink and then die cut it with a circle scalloped stitched die from Gina Marie.  I outlined the stitch marks with a red pen and then layered this on top the canvas. I stamped the sentiment from the same Unity set and edged with red ink and added it to my card using dimensionals. To finish I added a few dots of distress Stickles.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Until next time
