Warm and cozy

Hi everyone! I decided to play along in the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers challenge and I also paired it with this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.

Well, I used a bunch of different products on this one.

Sentiment stamp is from My Favorite Things. Snowflakes are from Hero Arts.

Mitten and cup dies are also from Hero Arts.  I cut the cup out using white cardstock and then colored it with Copic's. I heat embossed the snowflake using white detailed embossing powder, also from Hero Arts.

The snowflake designer paper is from my stash that I've had forever and I believe it's from K&Company.

I used my heat gun to create the whipped cream on a bit of Tulip puffy paint.



That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by.

Red mittens

Hello. Here's a card for this weeks snowflake challenge over at The Paper Players.


Mittens and matching dies are from My Favorite Things. I stamped the mitten using pure poppy dye ink from PTI multiple times using my Stampaholic Nano. Then I heat embossed the snowflake using white detail embossing powder from Hero Arts.

Sentiment is from another set from My Favorite Things. Pure Poppy cardstock is from PTI.

I did pop up the mittens using foam squares so that I could add the red bakers twin to tie them together.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi from three bears

Hi everyone. Just sharing a masked card today to say hello.

Bears are from My Favorite Things. I masked them, which is a technique I don't do often enough.

Colored with Copic's. I decided not to put a sentiment on the front of the card as I wanted the bears to take center stage. Now I'm wondering if that is a good choice. Thoughts?

Off to finish up another Christmas card and do a little shopping today. Thanks for stopping by.

Believe - Anything goes challenge

Hey everyone! It's time for another "Anything goes" challenge over at The House That Stamps Built.


I decided to use the really cool believe postoid stamp #5519-G. I did color the outline border with a red Copic marker.

Pine and leaf dies are from Carta Bella and the berry die is from Memory Box.

I've had the red border burlap in my stash for years, so I have no idea where it came from. Most likely I picked it up at Michael's.

CAS Congratulations


Hi everyone. Here is a quick CAS Congratulations card for the challenge over at Addicted to CAS. It's their 4th Birthday, so congrats, which also happens to be the code word.

The congratulations sentiment is from the Oh Happy Day from Avery Elle. I love the font on this and it's one of my go to sentiments.

Flowers are from Stamplorataions. Again, one of my go to sets for mini flowers and leaves.

I added some white enamel dots using Fabrika Decoru. I love this stuff!!! It comes in a wide range of colors and works wonderful!

White cardstock is Neenah solar white and I used black cardstock for the base so this would stand out. I also added a sheet of fun foam behind the white panel so that it pops up off of the base.

That's it for now, thanks for stopping by!

Butterfly moments

Hi everyone! It's sketch time over at The House That Stamps Built! Here's this month's sketch.

I kept this one pretty clean and simple.

Stamp is #8503-U Quartet moments.

I used Fresh Ink in Chamomile to stamp the squares and the butterfly. I did fussy cut out the little one and attached some wire for antenna that I cut out.

The satin ribbon is colored with a Copic marker that matched the ink color.

Snowflake shaker card

Hi everyone. Here is a simple shaker card I made for the following challenges.

CAS Colours & Sketches - monochromatic shades of blue (Happy #200 Birthday challenge)
Sunday Stamps - Sketch - which I changed up a bit..

I used a circle instead of a square. Snowflake stamps are from Carta Bella and stamped in cornflower, dusty blue and stone wash inks from Hero Arts.

Snowflake die and the stitched circle die are from My Favorite Things. Sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink and the snow embossing folder is from Taylored Expressions.

I did stamp a few snowflakes on the inside of the card, as you can see. I also glue a few of the sequins onto the snowflake panel before adding in the other shaker elements so that they wouldn't all fall to the bottom.

That's it for today. I hope all of you in the US have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.
