Hug Me

Hi again! I’ve got another card to share today! I’ve been so happy to be getting more stamp time in. I wanted to play along with the Paper Craft Crew “Romance” challenge

And got inspiration from the sketch at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge blog

So here’s my card!

I used products from Lil Inker Designs. I miss their cute products! I wish they were still around. But I love my little stash and will always keep it

Aren’t these little critters just adorable?! I colored them with alcohol markers and put them on a that cute Lil Inker tag

I love that cute heart die as the background. It’s also Lil Inker and it is actually two pieces! The open dots are a separate piece so if it’s not used, it’s just the cute stitched crooked heart. So fun! I’m a firm believer in keeping the supplies I love and pulling them out to be used!

Tomorrow I will post a video of this card coming together over on my Instagram. Go check it out to watch the fun process with these dies!

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you all have a wonderful week 🙂

Just a Note

Happy Monday everyone! Here’s the new Double Trouble Challenge!

I wanted to go extra simple on this card because the Double Dare from Thing 2 is to partner with Try Stampin on Tuesday for their sketch challenge and it’s a pretty clean sketch!

I filled the card up with a larger inner panel for my take on the sketch

Thing 1 would like to see some music! I thought this “Just a Note” theme was perfect

I went with a monochromatic style using only “Peacock” by Concord and 9th along with black and white

That cute little panda and the frame he’s in, is from Mama Elephant and goes right along with what Thing 3 wants to see – a zoo animal!

I wish there was a panda at the Zoo here in Utah. My daughter absolutely loves them! We’d have to travel pretty far to get to a Zoo that has one though

Of course a few sequins had to be added to finish my simple little card and it was done!

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a happy week and be sure to head to Double Trouble to try out this challenge yourself.


Snowflakes and more snowflakes!

Today I have a card I made to play along with the current challenge over at Honey Bee stamp‘s Facebook page!

I absolutely love the Honey Bee layering snowflakes dies and started by cutting a bunch of them out of navy and gray-blue cardstock

I coated the blue-gray snowflakes in glitter and layered those with the navy ones all over a card panel

I added rhinestone gems all over the card to add even more sparkle! And finished it with a simple sentiment “because you’re amazing” from the “Because” stamp set by Honey Bee

Of course while I had the snowflake dies out, I had to cut a few more out and do something with pink! So I blended them to be a little ombre and made a little notecard

A quick little “thanks” is always handy to have in the stash!

The possibilities with these snowflake dies are endless! I will probably cut more before putting them away. What could be more perfect for a January card?!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your weekend is going wonderful!


Sparkly Winter

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a tall, sparkly, slimline card. I’m playing with the Happy Little Stampers current challenge by using lots of die cuts

I used the “Lets Go Skating” stamps by Catherine Pooler. I love these winter branches with berries as well as the wintry pinecones. And of course everything is glittery glittery!

The white glitter paper is stitched around the edges with the “Post This” slimline die, also by Catherine Pooler. The wonky stitched oval is by My Favorite Things

With Nuvo drops to accent the white and some glitter dots to give interest around the foliage, this card was complete

Happy Winter to everyone! I wish everything was white and blue and sparkly like this card. But unfortunately it’s just all dirty leftover snow and dead trees, grass, and bushes. It’s ok though! All part of winters where I live 🙂



So happy for you!

This card is inspired by my daughter’s bedroom! She’s at a really neat time in life and I’m so excited for her

She’s been called on a church mission to Montevideo Uruguay! She will go there and serve the people in whatever ways she can for a year and a half. She’ll be learning Spanish and is so excited!

So I just had to write her a little note of excitement

These cute stamps with coordinating dies are from Concord and 9th. The adorable mini background die is by Catherine Pooler

With a touch of sequins and a matching envelope – this card was done. She loved it and gave me a big hug. We never know what smiles we might be creating with our handmade cards and happy notes!

Let’s do our best to send and give them lots in 2021!

Stamp Nation birthday party!

I can’t believe it’s 2021. I’m always excited for fresh starts and a new year is a great one!

This fun slimline card was inspired by a challenge over at Stamp Nation for their 10th birthday party! Here’s the inspiration photo

I love all the bright colors! The ones that stood out to me the most were the teals, peaches, and pinks.

I used the Doodle Windows slimline die by Catherine Pooler

And the stamps are from the CP I Scream You Scream set

It’s a party on the card but still has a clean feel to it, which I like

The finishing touch is almost always sequins! I used several different sets of Catherine Pooler sequins to just the right colors

Thank you for visiting! I have another fun card that will be up tomorrow and a video early next week.

Yay for lots of stamp time!

From our home to yours

Happy New Year!! I’m looking forward to a fresh start. A fun way to begin is with a new Double Trouble challenge! We are starting a little early this round so that we can have max play time with our partner ColorMyHeart Inspirational board color challenge

We are getting cozy with this one! Thing 1 wants to see us use our Cuttlebug and cuddle up!!

I used mine to create this dry embossed background for behind this cozy warm fireplace

Thing 3 wants to see you use a warm and cuddly critter. I didn’t have one to go with this scene so I left it a clean and simple fireplace and mantle scene

For the ColorMyHeart side of the challenge that Thing 2 wants us to partner with, I just loved all the warm and cozy colors of the inspiration picture

The hues of oranges, browns, and rusty colors is what really stood out to me with this scene. And the fireplace of course!

This warm and cozy card is ready to give a family a card that is from our home with love

Thank you for visiting! Please visit Double Trouble as well as ColorMyHeart to find all the details and play along. We’d love to see what you come up with.

Again, Happy New Year!


Snow time!

Hi everyone! I have a fun shaker card today using the fun color inspiration from the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge!

I loved playing around and seeing what I could come up with. I also wanted to incorporate the challenge at Simon Says Stamp “Let it Snow” – using Lawn Fawn products.

Here’s what I came up with!

I used the “Ready Set Snow” stamp set by Lawn Fawn and I just love those cute little snowmen!

I filled the bottom of this cute little snowy scene with snowflake sequins

And I put this cute little setup on an ink blended and splattered piece of card stock that I die cut using the Simon stitched rectangles. I added a matching envelope and this card is ready to get in the mail!

If you head to my Instagram, I have a quick video there of this card coming together! Thank you for stopping to see it today!

Merry Christmas shaker

Hello! Happy Monday! We already get a fun new challenge from Double Trouble

I was in the mood to make a shaker and I love my new birch trees die by Catherine Pooler. And Thing 1 is wanting to see a die cute! So I cut it and glittered it up and made it the front of the shaker

I used a LOT of sequins. Honestly, it was almost my whole little jar of Christmas Cove sequins! Thing 3 says “tie it up” so I tied some sheer ribbon from behind the panel up by the sentiment.

And that sentiment is cut using my Cricut! Thing 2 has challenged us to play along with Bitten By the Bug 2 – and they are asking us to use a cut that is from a machine. I used the Jasmine Cricut cartridge and then shaded the letters with some distress ink.

And that’s my card for today! I’m looking forward to making several different cards this week and hope you will swing by and visit.



Deck the Halls

Hi friends! It’s always a happy Monday when there’s a new Double Trouble challenge!

Thing 1 says anything goes! So we sure hope to see lots of you playing along and sharing the cards you are making.

Thing 3 wants to see snow!

I created a mixed media feel for this card, using the “Deck the Halls” stamp set by Gina K

Lots of bling and glitz to fancy up this monochromatic design! I chose to only use the colors red and white as that is the current monthly mix challenge at Gina K designs

Thing 2 always likes to see us partner with another challenge.

Heart2Heart has a theme of “Eat Drink and be Merry” to get the spirit of Winter holidays going. (Can you believe we are a day away from December?!) So they were a fun one to join up with for my inspiration

And with all that fanciness, my card was finished!

Thank you for stopping by to visit! I hope you will head to Double Trouble and share the card you are working on right now. We’d love to see it!
