Theme Day Thursday - Make It Punny #4

Welcome to Theme Day Thursday!  This is the last week of the Make It Punny series.  I have really enjoyed creating some punny-ilicous cards.  With that said, it's only appropriate to close the series with using the That's Punny-ilicous stamp set from My Pink Stamper.

Everyone knows what Man's Best Friend is, but what about a Woman's Best Friend?  I love how this card came out.  I decided to bring out my Cricut Explore to cut my image.  I used the Princess Party cartridge to cut out the shoe.  I kept the card pretty simple, but I did add a rhinestone for a little bling.

 
Thank you for stopping by today!

Make a Card Monday #6: So cute

Welcome to Make A Card Monday!  I finally got a chance to play around with some of the stamps in the CTMH Seasonal Expression Catalog! Today, I am using the Love Ya Silly stamp set.  This is a really cute set for creating cards for the kiddos.  I used papers from the My Mind's Eye Filled with Love pattern paper and the doily is from Recollections. 
 
Hope you enjoy today's card! Thanks for stopping by!

TDT - Make It Punny #3


Hello friends! Welcome to Theme Day Thursday!  This month, I am creating cards using punny sentiments. 

I am showcasing 2 sets from the Stamps of Life: cats2stamp and sayings4cats.  I don't have any animals, but I love how adorable cats look.  I use to be very scared of cats because my grandmother's cat scratched me on the face when I was 5-years-old.  The cat was 18 at the time and didn't like children.  Lesson learned. 
 
For my first card, I used the Friendship Forever Step-up card die.  I just love these dies because it makes creating cards so much easier.  I used papers from the Stamps of Life October card kit.  I colored my kitty using copic markers (Y15 and Y17).
 
 
For my next card, I used the Exclusive Fancy Edge Flip-it Die for the card base.  Using the sayings4cat, I stamped some paw prints on my Fancy #6 label die.
 

 
For my last card, I used the Basic Step Up die, which I think is so adorable.  It's very versatile, check out the video for other ideas for using this die. 


I had so much fun creating with these stamp sets.  You can purchase all of the products shown from the Stamps of Life!

TDT - Pugs and Kisses

Welcome to another Theme Day Thursday!  This month I am showcasing projects using puns.  This week, I am using the Pugs and Kisses stamp set from Jaded Blossom!

I just love the "Pugs and Kisses" set! It's filled with so many great sayings.  For my cards, I used the Silhouette print and cut feature.  It makes creating so much easier, especially when there is no time to paper piece images together.


 
Thank you for joining me.  Next week's TDT will be using the Stamps of Life's cats2stamp and sayings4cats stamp sets. See you next week!

Watercolor Background w/ Stamps of Life

Hello friends!  I was playing around with the Stamps of Life Inks and decided to how well I could create watercolor backgrounds with them.  Well, I have to say that they hold up really good.  I used the following inks: strawberry, guava grape, and blueberry.  I only used the blueberry ink to create the spatters.  It came out out so beautifully.  I hope you give this watercolor background a try with your inks!

CTMH Pigment Ink - Cranberry
Colorbox Pigment Ink - Dragonfly black
Watercolor Paper - Stratmore
Recollections - 100lb Vanilla Cardstock

Make a Card Monday - Bee You

Hello friends! Welcome to another Make a Card Monday!  Today I have another card using product from the Stamps of Life.
 
I have been enjoying working with the hive4bees stamps and dies.  This is a great encouragement card for anyone in your life, especially for the kiddos.  My daughter is at that age where she is trying to find herself and often is one way at home and another around her friends.  I always tell her to be yourself and if anyone can't accept you for who you are then they are missing out on a great friend. 
 
The card is simple but I love it.  I just wish that I added some black ribbon now that I look at it.
 
Thank you for stopping by! If you are interested, the process video is below!

Sweeter than Honey

Hello Friends! For those of you that watch the Superbowl, I hope you are enjoying some good snack and the game.  For me, I will be spending time in the craftroom and only coming out to watch the halftime show.

I really love working with the hive4bees and minihexagons4backgrounds stamp sets.  The sets are simply adorable.  While I do not like real bees anywhere near me, I would love to receive this one!  To see how I put this card together, the process video is below.
