Somebunny Birthday

Hi all!  Today I have a card for a couple of challenges:


I used the Somebunny set and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  The bunny was stamped in kraft ink and colored with Spectrum Noir pencils.  The stitched banner is from a Blueprints set and the sentiment was stamped with Hot Fudge ink.

This is also for the MFT Color Challenge – Daffodil, Brown Paper Bag, Tangy Orange, and Berrylicious and SSS Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes.  I hope you like it and TFL!

hello friend

Hi all!  I just had to make another card with the Three Amigos stamp set.  This time I did use the matching dies.


Using my MISTI, I stamped the raccoon in Memento, colored it with Spectrum Noir pencils, and then overstamped with Versafine.  In addition, I put black Enamel Accents on the eyes and nose for a little extra detail.  The patterned papers are from Lawn Fawn.

This is for the following challenges:

I hope you like it and TFL!

You’re Awesome

Hi all!  Today I have a card made for the current Less is More challenge, which is to CASE one of the DT members.  I chose this adorable card:


And here’s my version of it:


Once again, I stacked some animals from the Three Amigos stamp set using masking and my MISTI. I colored with Spectrum Noir pencils, hand drew the frame with a Zig pen, and finished it off with a bit of white twill.  And I made a video:

This is also for the SSS Monday Challenge – One Stamp, Many Ways (I used the same cat once whole, colored brown and then only partial, colored gray).  I hope you like it and TFL!

YNS Feature Day


Hi all!  It’s the 22nd of the month which means it’s time for our Your Next Stamp feature day.  This month we were asked to Think Spring!  Here’s what I came up with:


I used the heart in the Scrapworks - Mini Sunburst die set to cut the window out of the patterned paper.  I stamped the bunny from Sprinkles Happy Easter with Memento ink and my MISTI and colored with colored pencils.  I cut out Sprinkles with the matching die set and then put the negative and positive back in the MISTI to overstamp with Versafine for a really nice black line (I should have overstamped and then cut, but I wasn’t thinking.  Luckily MISTI saved the day!).

I cut the smaller banner in the 3D Banner die set and stamped it with a sentiment from the same Sprinkles set using my MISTI and then folded it up.  Finally I put all the pieces together on a white card base.  Here’s a video of the process in case you’d like to see it:

This is also for the following challenges:

Pawsitively Awesome

Hi all!  Today I have a card made for the current MFT Color Challenge:

Color 17

And here’s what I came up with:


I finally got the You Have My Heart set from MFT and had to ink it up right away!  I also had to play with the striped inlay technique that I’ve been seeing everywhere, so I cut up strips of Steel Blue, Coral Crush, and Tropical Teal cardstock and did the inlay technique with the Friend Die-Namics.

I used my MISTI to line up the sentiment from the set over the diecutting and also the image in the corner and stamped them with Steel Blue ink.  I colored the image with Spectrum Noir pencils and the card base is Rustic White from PTI.

This is also for Less is More – One Layer Card (and add an animal).  I hope you like it and TFL!

March DT Dare

Hi all!  This month the DT was dared to make a project using stripes and/or dots.  I used both in my creation:


I used my Scrapworks - Mini Sunburst die set and a sentiment from Love Bug Sentiments.  I made the mini sunburst and adhered it to a piece of patterned paper.  Then I die cut the star shape out of the center of it.  I added the PP panel to a card base, then added the star back in on foam tape.  Finally, I topped the star with a Caribbean Punch Glittered Gum Drop.

Please go over to the YNS Blog to see how the DT fared with this Dare and comment for your chance to win a YNS stamp set of your choice!  TFL!

Kup Holder Project

Hi all!  Today I’m playing in the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with this fun project:



It’s a little box that perfectly fits 2 K-Cups, which are also decorated!  I used stamps and dies that I designed a while back for Your Next Stamp: Kup Holder Die, Kup Toppers stamp set, and the Kup Topper die set.  The toppers read Just Because You’re the Best.

I also made a video:

And here’s THE LINK in case you can’t see the video player.

Three Amigos

Hi all!  I recently got the Three Amigos set from Mama Elephant and just had to use it right away!!  Here’s what I came up with:


Aren’t they just the cutest?!  Love all three of them and love the sentiments you can make for their signs! 

I did the masking and stamping with the help of the MISTI and it was so easy!  I stamped in Memento (because it dries really fast), then colored with Spectrum Noir pencils.  I overstamped them all with Versafine and added in their sentiments.  The little movement marks are from the  Arctic Penguins set.

This is also for SSS Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes and Less is More – This makes me happy (the three cuties make me smile from ear to ear!).  I hope you like it and TFL!
