Hey there...

Hey y'all! I know, I know, it's been a minute since my last post!...Sorry 'bout that! Time just keeps flying on by!!...Does it ever just stop, for one minute?!! lol  :)

Okay, today's card is for the current Case this Sketch challenge! It's even been a minute, since I've played with them. It's about time, I join back in with all the fun! :)

So, sticking to the sketch, I went with settle background colors/patterns. Then added a nice 'pop' of color with my flower. I chose to put foam dots on the back of the two pieces of paper and decided I would just adhere the last piece. Now, I stamped on my sentiment over my last piece of paper. Either it works or it doesn't?...I thought, I liked it and now, I'm second guessing myself, if I should of done that?....At this point, it is what it is. ;)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Hi there!

Hey y'all! What a quick week, this is!! Whew! :) Okay, so today I'm sharing a card I made for the current Simon Says Stamp challenge! This week is, Use an Arrow.

Here is my card!

I was just having some fun. :) I made my own little chipboard arrow, using some plain chipboard and pattern paper. Added some actual washi tape (to be exact, the only roll I have). Then I splashed a little ink on my card. Which I didn't use a mister of any sort. Somehow I just managed to flick my ink refill and out it came, the way I liked. :) a fun card....

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day! :)

Rock-a-bye, Baby

Hey y'all! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend?! I just wanted to stop in and share another card with you!  Lately, I seem to be on some kind of a roll?!.... :)

So, this card is for the current The Play Date Cafe challenge! I thought about this color combo, for awhile. I wasn't sure if something would come to me or not?....Then, this did!

Wait?...No, white cardstock!! lol Oh, I opted for this pink instead! :) I had to work with the colors somehow, and I thought this would add the perfect touch. And you know me...I kept it CAS. :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Happy Friday!!

Hey y'all! Happy Fiday! I can't tell you, how happy I am that it's Friday!! It's just been a busy week and comes Monday, it's birthday time! :) My kids still have no idea, of what mom and dad have planned for them. The look on their faces, will be priceless! ;)

Okay, so why not start this Friday off, with a new challenge! The Twinery has a brand new challenge, you have to check it out!! :) I have had some twine for a little while now. I don't always know how or what to use it with. So this is certainly a fun way for me to get creative with it and use more of it!! :)

Look at those colors! Yum! Now, from what I read you can use any colors you want (I sure hope I got that right! lol), I got polka dots! :) Here's what I did!

This is the best photo, I could get! I took about 15 or so and settled on this one. :)

I used Charcoal, Pink Sorbet, and Stone twine. For a little something extra, I added a clear rhinestone in two of the circles.

I swear to you, that IS Pink Sorbet! lol No matter what I did, I just kept getting more of a 'red' than pink. :)

Thank you stopping by and enjoy your weekend!! :)

Could it be?...

Hey y'all! Could it be, my second post of the day?!! lol I don't know if your falling over, but I certainly am! It's been a minute, since I've posted two cards in one day! It feels good. :)

Okay, so this card is for the current Casology challenge! I didn't play in last weeks challenge. So, I really wanted to play this week's challenge. And just so you know, Red is one of my favorite colors!

For this card, I tried something a little new. The only stamp I used, was my sentiment. I used a piece of acetate, for my background and heart. I first took my piece of acetate and smeared on some light pink ink (in somewhat of a zig-zag). Working quickly, I then carefully placed it over the middle of my card. Keeping it in place and pressing the down on what I inked. I then, carefully took the acetate off.

I tried doing a close up, so you could see more of the background. It is very light in pink. I think in person it looks better, but this will have to work. :)

For my heart, I basically did the same thing. Though instead of doing a zig-zag, I did a heart. In which I used the corner of my ink pad, to make the heart. I then, placed it slightly over my background pattern.

Thank you for stopping by, again and enjoy your day!

Happy, Wednesday!

Hey y'all! Hope you're enjoying the week, so far?! Not too shabby, for myself. :) Though, I can't wait until Monday because my youngest is turning 4!!! Oh, how much older that makes me feel! lol I have know idea where the time goes?! And this year we decided to go big....LEGOLAND BIG! This shall be fun and exhausting, all in one! lol :)

Okay! Now onto my card! :) So, the card I'm sharing today, is for the current Simon Says Stamp challenge! This is my first time, playing with them! Hopefully, I've done everything right...and I already look forward to play with them, again! :)

The challenge is: White on White. I do LOVE white. Especially, on my cards! lol So, this is right up my alley!

I used my embossing folder, at a angle. That I must say, was a little tricky but I got it to work! :) Then added my sentiment in silver ink (that's the next closet ink, that's white to me). And for an added little 'pop', a clear/white button with white twine.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day! :)

Cuttlebug embossing folder (Baby's Breath)
Silver ink (Colorbox)
Sentiment (Simon Says Stamp-Sunnier Days #SSS0412)
Button (Just a random one, I found in my stash.)
Twine (I ended up, not having solid white twine. So I took a colored piece of twine and took out the white only.)

Sweet Shop Stamp Release!

Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday!! I recently got the chance to play with some new release stamps, from Sweet Stamp Shop! I just wanna say, a BIG "thank you", to Nicole for letting me play with some super sweet stamps! So here I am, beyond excited today, to share some of the new releases with you!! :)

So, here's my first card!

I used the new Distressed Chevron background stamp, for this card. Now I still have yet, to have any washi tape(correction: I have ONE roll of washi tape. I just recieved it yesterday, in a prize package I won. Though, I have yet to use it.)! So, that left me with trying to create my own. And that's just what I did! :)

Here's what you need to make the tape.

1. A clear piece of vellum
2. Distressed Chevron background stamp
3. Inks (as many colors as you want)
4. Paper cutter
5. Clear adhesive

To put it all together, you just need to ink up your stamp. Then carefully stamp the vellum and let dry. After it's dry, use the paper cutter and cut into strips (you can choose how wide or narrow, you want them to be). Then hand tear, each of the ends. And then apply your adhesive and adhere them to your card. Easy, right?! :)

Now, here's my second card!

Again, I used the Distressed Chevron background stamp, along with the Chemistry stamp set. This time I ended up using a 'mask' to fill in my image. Maybe I should refer to it as a 'reversed mask'....because I masked off the outside of my image, so it left my hole in the middle, to where I can fill in my image?....Ha! Now, I could just be confusing you all! lol One way or another I masked off my image, so I could fill in the 'poof'. :) I then added my extra little 'poof' by the sentiment, in which I 'kissed' the stamps together.

Okay, and here is my last card!

For this card I used the Nesting stamp set, along with the Hello Beautiful stamp set. I thought that it would be perfect if I could use the 'face' of one of the nesting dolls, inside the mirror. I did some thinking and managed to figure it out! :) I stamped on my mirror and then used a 'LePlumeII' pen and outlined just my 'face' from the Nesting set. After outlining my face, I stamped it in the middle of my mirror. I then added a couple tiny rhinestones to the hair, for a 'clip' and also to give it an extra little 'pop'. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by! Also, don't forget to stop by the Sweet Stamp Shop blog and check out all the releases!! :) Have a great day!!

I (heart) U

Hey y'all! I'm stopping in today (actually, tonight) to share a card I made, for the 1st challenge at Cas on Sunday!

So, the first challenge is "Be my Valentine". It's certainly the month of love....

You know, I messed around with my 'lighting' and at this point, I decided to go with this photo. I don't know if it looks all that great but I'll have to play around with it tomorrow. *I'm getting tired* ;)
For my card, I went super CAS! I had this 'lipstick/smooch' stamp, for quite some time now. For some reason, I just love this stamp! I don't always use it much but I don't think I'll ever part with it! ;) After stamping on my smooch, I added my I (heart) U. I was really debating, whether to add a little rhinestone or some other embellishment....But I thought this was perfect!?....

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day (evening)! :)

Oh, happy day!

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! Well, last week was a extremely hard and crazy week, for me! I knew it was going to be hectic but I wasn't in store, for having our only car break down. Not only did it break down, but it left my husband, two of our kids, and me stranded for a bit. Thankfully, we were able to get picked up by the car rental place (at no extra charge). At this point, I'm in a crunch to find something. Though, so far nothing. I'm just gonna have to roll with it, and whatever happens...happens. (Okay!....Thank you for listening to me ramble)

On another note! My card! :)

Yes! I purposely, wanted my 'Oh happy day' to look worn down/cut off some. :)

So, this is one of my Feb. cards I did for PSA Stamp Camp! I kept it CAS and had some fun with an over sized big brad. I know 'flair' is in, though I don't actually have any (as of yet). So, I decided to try and make a piece of  'somewhat' flair. :) For my stamps and ink, I used all PSA Essentials.

Inside of card.

Hopefully, by now you've 'liked' PSA Esentials on Facebook!?! They always have some frequent giveaways and of course, stamps! ;) And remember you can always find more inspiration at PSA Stamp Camp! :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!
