A springtime window to start the week. This is truly a simple card to make. Two spellbinders dies were used: Four Seasons Silhouettes, Shapeabilities Die D Lites Window Two S2-016. White Nina Solar white cardstock #110 was used for both dies. A Lawn Fawn stiched retangular die was used to cut out two 5.5×4.25 rectangles. Then the Window die was centered on the papers and cut simultaneously. One of the cut papers was then placed in an embossing folder. The window was simply taped to the embossed paper and the second paper was used to help layer the window. The summer silhouette was cut out of the same paper and SIMPLE copic coloring supplied the coloring. I little bit of distressed ink was blended on the card base. Then the layers were simply stacked.

Happy Spring Monday, y’all!

I Love Purple

There is lots of purple to be seen over at this fortnight’s Time Out Challenge. I was immensely excited when I saw this challenge as purple is my favorite color. 💜 However, I was trying to resist another unicorn card, just trying to be a bit more original. So off to my stash I went. This flamingo from Rabbit Hole Designs just had to be used. The flamingo and sentiment were both stamped with Memento black ink; the coloring is Copics, of course, with a little help from SketchBox alcohol marker in grape. The background was done using an embossing folder. I used wilted violet Distressed Ink and rubbed it over the embossing folder and then used the folder as a stamp to create the background.

This card is yet another cute animal and will be entered into the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies monthly challenge as well.

I hope you enjoy it! Have a safe and crafty weekend y’all!

Parisian Pink

Rosie and Bernie by Stamping Bella

There’s a new color challenge over at Color Throwndown Challenge. Pink and purple lead me straight to unicorns! There is no better unicorn than Bernie! Rosie and Bernie are stamped in Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers on X-press it blending paper. The image was then cut out and placed on the background with some foam tape. Oh, the backgroud, how fun you were to make. 🦄 A rectangle was cut out with Lawn Fawn dies and the bottom masked with some masking tape. Basic ink blending with Distressed oxide in wilted violet, worn lipstick and picked raspberry. After blending, the background was put in a mini misty and The Ton’s stamp Parisian Cafe was inked with the same distressed oxide ink and stamped on top of the blending. The sentiment is from a Kindred Stamp’s set.

Happy crafting and stay safe y’all!

Woodlands Fairy

A small fairy to brighten your day! The inspiration for this card if from the current Card Concept challenge. The title of this challenge is woodland nursery. I found this fairy with a little baby bunny and figured, sounds like a nursery to me? The basic colors come from the challenge as well. I was going for a clean and simple card; I think this fits. A BIG shout out to Lisa Mitrokhin on YouTube for your inspiration for colors for the fairy’s wings. The card is just a single stamp from a retired Designing Desert Divas set; it is stamped in Memento brown ink on brown paper for a more no-line coloring appearance. The remainder of the card is Prismacolor pencils. I will eventually stamp a black sentiment on the front once I know who and for what occasion for which the card will be used. Not too bad for a first attempt at coloring on a dark background?

Have a great Wednesday, y’all!

Best Wishes

Happy hump day for those able to work! I am taking some time to craft a bit more with my “vacation” time. Here is my take on the current fusion challenge. A rather simple approach for this card. The circles are heat embossed on a textured paper. The cake is the same stamp from the previous entry only stamped and colored a bit different.The cake stand is simply clear embossing on white card stock. The sentiment is a foiled embossing sentiment from Spellbinders.

Best Wishes Y’all!


I am in love with these Alice in Wonderland stamps from Stamping Bella. Images were stamped on Copic BLENDING CARD X-Press It Paper. No copics were used. AMAZING! Still playing with ArtMarkers from Amazon; they are remarkable for the price. There is no skin tone in this set, so Prismacolor pencils to the rescue. The background is a stamp from Neat and Tangled paired Emerald Creek’s burnt copper embossing powder.

Have a great week y’all!

Birthday Purrincess

It’s been a while since I’ve made a CAS card. Here is a great little birthday card. The cat and sentiment are from the Ton’s Purrincess set. The packages are from a set by MayMay Helms. Simple copic coloring and a few gelly roll white pen accents finish the card.

Have a purrfect day y’all!

Sweetest Wishes

This card was inspired by the current Fusion Card challenge. DD14 made this card. The background was distressed oxide with a hexagon stencil (although they look more like polkadots). The stamps are from Art Impessions Wisk It set. The sentiment is a simple gold ink. Great job, girlie!!

Party Animal

Happy Birthday Lawn Fawn!

This is my first ever #10 size card. It was a tremendous amount of fun!!. A shout out to Carrie Rhodes whose youTube video gave me the encouragement to try one of these cards. Lawn Fawn stamps were obviously used, Party Animal and Oh Gnome!. The background is simple stenciling with Lucky Clover and Salty Ocean. The animals, balloons and presents are truly simple copic coloring.

I hope you like it y’all!

Hello Color Challenge

I finally was able to finish a Color Throwdown challenge before the link closed! YEAH! 👐 I saw these colors and thought of a beach scene at sunset. Who better to use for a beach than Hero Arts stamps?! Distressed Oxide inks (antique linen, abandoned coral and peeled paint) provided the sand, sky and chairs and Gina K inks the water. Hero Arts Unicorn White created the clouds. Ranger’s embossing powders in antique white and tan supplied the foams on the waves and the sentiment. A simple and fun scene to create!

Enjoy Y’all!
