On My List Today...


I made it through my final projects for the semester!  Yay!  Now to catch up on everything else around the house :)  First on my list...

Laundry!  Hee Hee!  Coloring laundry and adding cute sequins would be way more fun :)  This stamp set from Lawn Fawn is seriously cute!  I colored this with watercolors and then created a fun shaker element to the washing machine.  I added bits of pattern paper to ground it and stamped the sentiment below.  Can you see the tiny bubbles in the background?

I do have laundry to do today but I am spending a fair share of the day crafting too!  Yay for crafty time!!  I am so glad to have a break from school :)

Inlaid Diecutting With Vellum Card


Hope your Wednesday is off to a good start!  I thought I'd pop on before my day starts to share a card I made for Waffle Flower Crafts Watch It Wednesday Series.  I used the new Flower Circles Inverted Die to create an inlaid diecut card with vellum:

Because the background was so detailed, I tried to keep everything else simple and bold.  I used a pretty coral color for the sentiment.  I used the Amazing Word Die to cut out the first part and a stamp from the In Every Way Stamp Set for the second part.  I added a couple of sequins for some sparkle as well!

If you'd like to see the video on how I made this, pop over to the Waffle Flower Blog today!  Hope you're doing well!

Thinking of You Card

Hi!  Today I have a fun card inspired by this month's Waffle Flower Challenge!  I loved the colors in the inspirational photo and the fact that the flowers were coming out of the umbrella- so cute!  I planted my flowers in a teacup to mimic the look:

The background was stamped with the beautiful Lacy Flower Stamp Set.  I used the largest image with white ink.  Next, I added a bit of white spatter over the top of it.  I let it dry and then embossed it with a wide stripe embossing folder.

The focal panel was cut using the Lacy Layers Die.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lacy Flower Stamp Set along the bottom.  I added a bit of washi to act as my foundation for my focal image.  The focal image was created using the Warm Wishes Stamp Set and the A Bunch Stamp Set.  I colored them with Copic markers and fussy cut around the image.  I added it to the card with a foam dot for dimension.

The challenge will be going on for a few more days!  Pop over to the Waffle Flower Blog to check out the inspiration for this month!  It's a cute one and if you play along, you'll have a chance to win some free goodies! :)
Thanks for stopping by today!

Need A Hug Card


Hope you are doing well!  I have been bad about posting lately- sorry!  The last week of semester is coming up and everything is coming due!  I am looking forward to a little break before summer semester starts- hopefully I can share all the cute cards I've been making!

I thought I'd pop on and share one I made this week just for fun! :)  We are kitty people and I have been wanting to make a kitty-on-a-monkey's-head card since Nina came up with these adorable designs!

This monkey is from the Willy & Friends Stamp Set.  I paired him with the kitty from the Welcome Spring Stamp Set.  For this look, I stamped the kitty first and masked it before stamping the monkey.  I did a quick Copic coloring job and fussy cut around the image.  The sentiment is also from the Willy & Friends Stamp Set.  Isn't it perfect for this?  Hee Hee!

I've been using my favorite old patterned papers, twines, and sequins lately!  They might be oldies but they sure are goodies!

I'm glad I got to pop and share today!  I took a bunch of pictures of cards I've been making so be ready for post overload when I finish up with my school work this week!

Enjoy your weekend!!
