All The Best


This card will be entered into the Simon Says Monday Challenge, Trio-Tastic.

I love this stamp set from Gina K Designs, Fill It With Flowers.  I stamped the vase and then the flowers 3 times, fussy cutting out 2 of them and then adding the leaves.  Images colored with Copic Markers.  Sentiment stamped in Black Licorice ink and the little tag was also fussy cut out.     

Designer Papers by Craft Smith, Tea Party.  Pretty Pink Gingham Ribbon and Pink Sequins for accents.  Stickles for sparkle.

Has a bit of dimension.
Thanks for coming by.

Great Story

Good Morning! 

This card will be entered into the Simon Says Monday Challenge, Trio-Tastic.

This card uses the Papertrey Ink stamp and die sets, Uncorked.  Sentiment stamped in Black Licorice ink on to a Spellbinders Perfectly Pierced Frames die.  I added Gold Foil to the wine glass die cuts with my Mini Minc.

Designer papers by DCWV, Modern Metallic.  Black Sheer Ribbon and Pearl Drop Adhesive Rhinestones for accents.  How FUN is that sentiment?!?!

I also added some Gold Foil to the Cheers, Uncorked Words, die cut on the inside.  I am loving the elegant flavor and feel of this simple Birthday card.
Thanks for popping in!

Good Morning! 

I am once again participating in the monthly Papertrey Ink November 2016 Blog Hop.

I am also entering this card into the Challenge at Simon Says Wednesday, Christmas To Die For.

I had some fabulous Designer Paper in my stash that matched the gift boxes perfectly, Craft Smith, Tea Party.  Using the Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Parade # 9 tree dies I cut out 2 from chipboard and double sided sticky tape, which made adding my chunky White Snowy Glitter to the die cuts so easy!  I also did the same with the MFT Snow Drifts die.  I decorated my trees with Pink Beads and topped them with Pink Glittered stars.
I added some more pretty Pink Glitter to a Joy One Liner die cut also by Papertrey Ink.
Off to check out the rest of the HOP!

Wild Hibiscus


This card will be entered into the Challenges at Altenew, November Inspiration Photo and Simon Says Monday, Trio-Tastic.

I stamped the background leaves and flowers in Black Licorice ink.  Stamps and dies from Altenew, Magnolias For Her (leaves) and Wild Hibiscus.  Images colored with Copic Markers.

Teal Sheer Ribbon and flower centers are accented with a Sakura Glaze Pen in black.  It's been a lot of FUN not making Christmas cards.....I am sure I will regret that statement in another week or two.
Thanks so much for popping in, appreciate it when you do!

Wishing You Joy

Hello!  Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

This card will be entered into the Challenges at Simon Says Monday, Trio-Tastic and Stamp TV, Clean And Simple.

This card is about as CAS as I can may or may not qualify in the real world.

I used the Gina K Designs stamp set, Fill It With Flowers.  Now this set is NOT a Christmas one but I thought I could switch it up a bit and make it totally Christmas, of course the sentiment from Wishing You Joy helps immensely!  Images colored with Copic Markers and sentiment stamped in Black Licorice ink.  I stamped these precious bottles 3 times and then masked them off stamping the greenery and leaves.  I also stamped extra leaves, colored and fussy cut out.  Vellum Strip and Adhesive Pearls for accents. 

Merry Merry!
Thanks so much for stopping by!  May you find yourselves surrounded by all the ones you love!

Pretty Poinsettias

Good Monday Morning!

Back again on the Dies R Us Blog to share a Holiday card with you!
This card uses the gorgeous Plush Poinsettia Corner die by Memory Box.  It's quite a fabulous large die measuring approx. 3.5 x 3.5 inches.  I love the inlaid look and the embossed detail on the leaves.
I stamped and colored the holly image from Power Poppy, Holly Golightly to offset the Plush Poinsettia Corner.  Images colored with Copic Markers.  I also added accents to the holly berries using a white marker.  Sentiment stamped in Black Licorice ink.  A few Adhesive Pearls added to the Poinsettia centers.  This card will make for easy mailing.
Here's what I used:

Happy Tags!


I have made a few little Happy Tags for the Papertrey Ink, Create Along With Us Challenge.  There were so many wonderful designs and creations, it took me 2 days to figure out which to pick!

I chose these fabulous tags that Lizzie Jones created, aren't they FUN!?!?

Here's what I came up with!
All use the Papertrey Ink Phrase Play #5 and Spellbinders Classic Circles dies and a Corner Rounder Punch.  And each one is layered with a corresponding Designer Paper, which was measured and hand cut.

Papertrey Ink Big Birthday Basics die.  Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  Eyelet, Ribbon, Heart Button and Twine accents.

Papertrey Ink Happy For You stamp set stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink.  Eyelet, lone Sequin and Baker's Twine for accents.


 Papertrey Ink Counting My Blessings stamp set stamped in Tempting Turquoise ink.  Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Ribbon and Flower Brad for accents.  This one I also layered Yellow card stock over the happy just to make it POP a bit more!
Super FUN to make!  If I do not use them as gift tags I may add them to card bases, you know how I Love a tag.....ON a card!  :)
Thanks for popping in!
