Hey everyone. Can you believe it is almost the end of March, the snow is melting fast here! Spring is in the air, my son pulled out his bike and is impatiently waiting for me to make a trip to the city to get him a new skateboard. That is probably happening next weekend. I am pulling out bright vivid colours into my cardmaking, impatiently waiting for summer.
I am playing along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, this weeks theme is CUTE! I don’t spend a lot of time watching youtube videos lately, and yes I know I need to film some more. That is coming I have my ducks almost in a row again, I know I say that all the time. But I did watch Jennifer McGuire’s recent video about shadow box cards, I altered it a bit to create a dome card and still have a folding card in the back. But that was the basis of the card.
I pulled out the Gill Friends set from My Favorite Things. All links to products used in this card will be at the end of the blog post. I stamped and coloured all the fish in a no lines style, then fussy cut them out.
Creating the dome aquarium panel to lay on top of the wave stenciled background. I used a little fishing line to pop some of the fish up near the front. I am thrilled with how cute this card turned out. I may have to make a few more in this style!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed my little project. Now to head to the basement and do some filming!
Hey everyone! Back again with another card to share today. It is the 18th day of the coloring challenge, and I have completed a card everyday so far this month! It has been super fun and challenging to make time to do this everyday! But I am loving it, and I can not wait to share a video at the end of this month showing all my creations this month!
Today I pulled out the Mermazing set from My Favorite Things. Links to all products and colours used will be linked at the bottom this blog post!
I coloured up the images with my copic markers, then did a little bit of ink blending in the background, stamping some of the solid fish from the Mermazing set with the same ink I blended into the background. A few splashes of water and some tiny white circles made with a pastel pencil finished off this card! I love it so much!!

There are lots of things that I don’t post here, that are posted over on My Instagram. If you aren’t following me there, you should!
But today, I am sharing a just because card here, on my blog. Which, I should do more often. I am going to try and get better at that. Enough with the rambling, on with card!!!
I pulled out the Chin Up Buttercup stamp from Honey Bee (all links are at the bottom of this blog post). That I have had in my stash for along time now and have not use.
I stamped and masked out to create a cluster of buttercups. Then Distress Oxides blended together to create the background. My favorite part is always pulling the masks off and seeing the white images that I am going to bring to life.
I coloured them bright yellow and love how this card came out in the end! I always have fun when I get to make floral cards!

Our first set, PANDA PLANS features the most adorable, chubby pandas ever. They are perfect for scene cards or for your planner pages. Next, we have I HEART YOU ANYA. She has gorgeous, flowing hair and would make the most beautiful Birthday or Mother’s Day card. Our last set called IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY showcases some adorable birthday girls along with the most delicious macarons.
I started by copic colouring up the images from the It’s Your Birthday set and cut them out with their coordinating dies. After that, it was as simple as blending some Distress Oxide inks and embossing the large sentiment from the set!
To celebrate our release, we are having a short BLOG
