Birthday Girl

KKS Bday Girl

Hey everyone! Back today with a wonderful card using Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Birthday Girl. I made this card for the Wonderful Wednesday Challenge, which is always anything goes. I even used the sketch for this month, you can find that sketch through the link for this weeks challenge.

I coloured this image up with my copics and used a fun technique where I selectively die cut the image into a circle allowing the balloon to continue outside of the circle. Layered patterned paper, trim and flowers finish the card off.

Batter Bestie

Baseball Bestie 1


Hey everyone! Today’s card is a Sherri Baldy My Bestie Digital stamp (IMG309). I have been loving lots of layers again lately, I got away from it for a while and was doing very clean and simple cards and its lovely to be back into more layered loo. Don’t worry for all you clean and simple cardmakers that may read my blog I have a plan to do some of them again soon as well.

You’re my Everything

Your my everything 1


Hey everyone! It’s been a very long time sense I have done anything with a “shabby” feel to it. This card was a fun challenge for me.

Your my everything 2


I started with Kaiser Craft the lake shore collection and cut my back panel. Traced a standard shipping tag and cut it out. I then ran the two smallest dies out of the Spellbinders standard circles LG set to cut the semi circle out of the side of the tag.

The heart is from a coffee cup die from Simon Says Stamp. I took a piece of corrugate and distressed then added some Golden Titanium white paint to it. A little bit of twine and a few little pearls from Recollections finish off the card.

The inside of the card has a simple Happy Anniversary stamped in it.

You’re a hoot

Your a hoot 1


Hey everyone! This card was tons of fun, I have been eyeing this stamp set from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps for a long time (link is in the products used), I was absolutely thrilled to get my hands on it!

Your a hoot 2


I used the Serendipity 6×6 pad that came in the Hip Kit January color add on, to create the layers in the backround. The bottom layer was cut with a stitched die from Simon Says Stamp. The twine is out of my stash I would assume from the twinery but it is the last of it so I can’t be sure.

I stamped the image with versafine onyx black in then coloured it with my Gansai Tambi watercolours (I have the 24 colour set). THe white highlights are done with a small brush and Golden Titanium White heavybody Acrylic.

Make a wish…

Make a wish PS

Hey everyone! Back today with another sweet little card. I have always loved this stamp set from Lawn Fawn, I have used it over and over again, and still continue to love it.

Make a wish PS 2


There is no patterned paper on this card, which has been one of my favorite things it seems lately. Ink and white paper seems to keep very happy, probably considering the abundance of colouring mediums I have in my possession.

A Holiday Hello



Welcome everyone to day 3 of this Christmas Marathon on my blog. Did you see Susan’s card yesterday!!! Wow she did amazing. This card is ever so simple, I started by using my Silhouette Cameo to cut a snowflake from an Echo Park Snowflake set (Design ID# 51859), I then cut off some of the bottom whisps just to make it slightly more simple, finished these little snowflakes off by putting 2 coats of Hero Arts silver embossing powder.


The white cardbase and layers are from Neenah 80lb Solar White cardstock, the red layers of cardstock I am not 100% sure where it is from but I would guess it is a Bazzil Cardshoppe Cardstock. The silver and cream patterned paper as well as the stripes behind the sentiment is from the SSS Christmas card kit from last year and I can not remember who it was from as it was in my scrap bin. The shape behind the sentiment is a Spellbinders Die from my stash, unfortunately I have misplaced the packaging to it and can not remember what set it is from. The stamp is from a SSS Set called Holiday Hellos (SS101365), the sequins and small pearls are from my stash.

This follows the same reason why I love the one above. These dies from spellbinders simply stunn me (there is a blog post for tomorrow using this die)


Distress Glitter

This is the best, chunky, vintage glass looking glitter ever. Without it being glass! I truly love this stuff the colours are phenomenal, and they are ink-able which makes them even better!! Just try them, trust me.


Happy Crafting,



Just a little white..

white card 1


So here is the card I made to enter the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge W is for White. My card base is Neenah Desert Storm 80lbs cardstock, then I cut a layer of Neenah Solar White cardstock and  used the Prima Butterfly stencil (I can’t find a link for) and inked it with Distress ink in Seedless Preserves, and Peacock Feathers.

A piece of Simon Says Stamp Woodgrain Cardstock,edged it in seedless preserves, and tor a piece of Bazzill 40lbs vellum and tore it slightly larger.


white card 2


A banner cut out of DCWV Burlap paper and covered it in many layers of Picket Fence Distress Paint, and layered a vintage Doily under it. Die cut 2 of the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Peacock Feathers and watercoloured them with Distress ink. Die cut and stamped the sentiment from the All Occasion Banners set.

For the love of glitter

Distress glitter 1


Glitter is such a wonderful thing. Which is still odd for me to stay I was always so opposed to it for so long until I discovered microfine glitter… Then Distress Glitter entered my world and now I love all things that sparkle and shine and make me look like a walking disco.

I started with my favourite Tim Holtz Rays Stencil, using Golden Light Molding Paste through it. I then added the Mustard Seed Distress Glitter to the bottom part of the rays tapping it lightly with my finger to push it into the molding paste, then dumping the excess off. I repeated the same on the top half with Picked Raspberry Distress Glitter.

Distress glitter 2

I then cut a tag using Spellbinders Fancy Frame Tags 3 and coloured it as well as the back panel with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the SSS Birthday Messages stamp set in Versamark ink and embossed it with Hero arts White embossing powder.


Distress Glitter 3


I then took Studio Calico Star Burst wood veneer (I can not find a link to these) and painted them with Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry, and Mustard Seed.
