This is a super easy card to make because I didn’t do any coloring – I just stamped the scene in blue ink on blue patterned paper and added some dots of Stickles to the snow. I used some MFT Blueprints dies and a sentiment from the same set to finish it off. Hope you like it!

Hi all! I have a card today made for the Little Tangles Shaped Card challenge:
Even though I used the set Santa's Tags, this is not a Christmas card. It just expresses how I feel about my morning coffee! I went with the Starbucks colors of white, green and kraft – all cut with my Zing using Make-The-Cut and the Lettering Delights cut set Love You A Latte. I stamped the sentiment and added some doodle lines with a matching pen. Finally, I added some rustic twine from May Arts. I hope you like it and TFL!

Hi all! I have a Fun Friday with Your Next Stamp post for you today! I went with the card sketch and came up with this:
Winter Fun Reindeer was stamped in black on white cardstock and colored with Prismacolor pencils. I added red Stickles to his nose and a sentiment from Holly over his head. The papers are from Echo Park, the twine is May Arts and the button is amuse studio.
We hope you’ll play along! All the information you need can be found at the YNS Challenge Blog. TFL!

Hi all! I recently got an order from Papertrey Ink (sorry I didn’t do a haul video!) and 1 of things I’ve been playing with a lot is the Hexagon Cover Plate. I’ve made a bunch of hexagon backgrounds, but didn’t know how to make them into cards until I got this idea from Kristina Werner:
The hello diecut is also from PTI, the flower is an old Prima that I sprayed black, and the flair button is one that I made myself.
Shortly after I finished this card, I came across the PTI Inlaid Die Cuts challenge and knew I had to join in since it is currently one of my fave techniques! Here’s the inlaid version of the above card:
This was done with some really old Basic Grey papers, an amuse studio flower die and another flair that I made. I hope you like these and TFL!

Hi all! I have a really fun card for you today that answers the question, “What does the fox say?” [If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out the video.]
I made up this card fold and am calling it the center platform card. If somebody already made it and called it something else, please let me know – I couldn’t find anything like it after a LOT of searching! It’s very similar to one I made a long time ago for a WMS Blog Party.
Basically it’s a center step card, but instead of having the steps in the center, it has a platform. The platform has a space in the center where the cardstock comes together so that you can stick stuff right in there and don’t even need any adhesive!
The fox, word bubble and clouds are from the Into the Woods set, cut with the matching dies, and the woodgrain, heart and sentiment are from the Woodgrain Backdrops set. I used the MFT grass die and some of the Into the Woods paper for the grass. Finally, there is a tiny piece of plastic holding the word bubble above the fox’s head.
This is for Lawnscaping challenge – Pinterest Inspired. I don’t really do Pinterest, so the challenge said I could use something that inspires me and that is the above linked What does the fox say? song. As soon as I saw the fox and heart word bubble in this set, I knew I wanted to do this little scene! I hope you like it and TFL!

Hi all! Today I have a card for Avery Elle’s sketch challenge:
I pretty much stuck to the sketch except I moved the bow to the top of the circle.
This is another example of my simple no-lines technique. The wreath was stamped with a light green ink, then I went over it with colored pencils to get the hand drawn look. Next, I stamped the bow in pink on a separate sheet of cardstock and colored with pencils. I fussy cut it out and mounted it onto the wreath. Finally I stamped the sentiment, went over it with glitter pen, and scattered a few sequins around the wreath. I hope you like it and TFL!
