Hello!  I am very hopeful SPRING is on its way but right now we have had TWO days of ice this week!  YUCK!  So, I have a pastel spring card that I created using some of the Spring goodies from Lil' Inker Designs.  I also wanted to share about a great special that's going on right now too.

                   Hello Awesome Stamps                         Awesome Word Die                     
My white note card was created with my most FAVORITE Cover Up Die from Lil' Inker Designs.......Quilted Stitched Pattern Die.  I've used the Sweet Celebration stamps and coordinating Sweet Celebration Dies for all those pretty blooms.  For the main sentiment, I die cut the Celebrate Word Die in white and Copic coloring an ombre look to it.

 My card was inspired by the current challenge over at Inspired by All the Little Things with this beautiful inspiration photo with all the pastels and florals!

I wanted to pop on here and share a card using the Large Die of the Month from Spellbinders.  While this particular set is out of stock.......I still had to share about the VALUE you get with these clubs and my cute card!

One of my favorite parts to these kits are all the details included with these dies!  For example, just look at the details and embossing of the Happy Birthday word dies.  


It's hard to tell from my photo but I coated the swirled layer on the cupcake as well as the cherry on top with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen.

Reverse Confetti / CAS(E) this Sketch! #259

CAS(E) this Sketch 

Hello!  I created this card earlier this week and hadn't posted it yet for the current CAS(E) this Sketch!  I'm now getting it in just under the wire for the deadline!

I LOVE this sketch!  So easy to pull a CAS card together.  I used the Lotsa Dots Stencil along with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink.  For my main image, I colored the kite from Take Flight with Copics and die cut using the matching Take Flight Confetti Cuts.

Avery Elle / Toucan Party

Are you ready for a little "toucan party"?  This new stamp set from Avery Elle has you covered when it comes to sentiments.....birthday, thanks, and just "tropi-cool"!

Toucan Party

To a panel of white cardstock, I ink blended some Broken China Distress Oxide ink to one corner (this does not have to be perfect).  To this panel, I used the Polka Dot Plate to die cut the polka dots.  

Toucan Party2

I stamped my images using New Moon Dye Ink, Copic colored, and die cut using the Toucan Party Elle-ments.  My sentiment was white heat embossed using Pure White Fine Embossing Powder.  I simply layered my images, some with foam adhesive, to my white notecard that was layered with the polka dot panel.

My second card uses the Shaker Challenge by Lea.  I created my own plaid using the V is for CheVron stamps.  The small set called Happy Birthday to You was used as the main image for my shaker.

Technique Tuesday / Fun News

DT announcement 

Hello!  I'm so excited to share that I have joined up with the wonderful DT over at Technique Tuesday!  We will get things started with the new release next week!

I had to make a project to share today using the Enjoy Layered Flower and coordinating dies.  I stamped and die cut the flower and leaves (I used Altenew ink) and layered them on a piece of light green gingham paper that I used the Threaded Crafting Dies on the edges for the zig zag look!

Winnie & Walter / 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop Celebrating Love and Friendship


Hello!  I am honored to be in the lineup of fabulous designers to help Winnie & Walter celebrate their 4th Birthday!  I have had the best time getting to know Shay over the years and am so happy for her and this milestone!  

The full blog hop list is below so make sure to visit all the blogs and leave comments for the giveaways!

What better to celebrate......Love & Friendship!  
I had fun mixing and matching some stamps and dies from Winnie & Walter.  

I started with a panel of Bristol Smooth Watercolor paper to which I white heat embossed the outline hearts from From the Bottom of My Heart.  Using some watercolor, I loosely watercolored over the hearts for an emboss resist look to create my background and added some splatters.  Using a another piece of watercolor paper, I die cut the In a Word: Hugs Cutaway several times to create my chipboard element.  Sending You, from Sentimental: Love, was white heat embossed on a thin strip of black cardstock.  

My sentiments were adhered over a die cut heart from the From the Bottom of My Heart CutawaysThis panel was adhered over a strip of black/white striped paper on the left.   A few die cut hearts from watercolor paper and clear sequins were added as embellishments.



There can't be a blog hop without prizes so make sure to leave comments along the way by February 28, 11:59 CST for your chance at FOUR $40 credits to the W&W shop!
