For my card I used the Fancy Hello Die for my sentiment. I sponged them with different shades of pink to create an ombre effect. The background was created using the Slim Stripe Panel Die. I added the heart using the Rainbow Heart Die Set. This cute bunny is from a retired YNS set called Love and Smiles but any darling YNS image would work with this layout. I finished the card by adding some  Pink Pizzaz Sparkly Gumdrops.

For my card I chose this adorable image from the set Unicorns Rock. I chose this image because music makes me feel young at heart:) I may be pushing closing in on 50 but I still listen to today's hits. You can pretty much find me dancing daily at some point around the house or in the car to anything with a good beat! I've also been known to make a few TikToks LOL!

I stamped this cutie with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copics. I then cut it out with the coordinating Unicorns Rock Die Set. To create my scene I used the Floating Hearts Panel Die to sponge the background, the Stitched Grass Die for the ground, the Circles Die Set for the layer behind the unicorn, and finally, the Stitched Rectangle Frames Die Set to frame the scene.

I can't wait to see what you come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

What is more than a new beginning than the birth of a baby? I needed to make a baby card for a co-worker and this challenge was perfect! I used the adorable Baby Blessings Stamp Set along with the Baby Blessings Die Set for my images. I decided to make a shaker card and used the Stitched Rectangle Frames Die Set to cut my frame. I then used an embossing folder that I have in my stash to emboss the background and I added a few sequins to create the shaker.



The sentiment was cut out with a Stitched Fishtail Banner Die. That's it for me! Happy New Year everyone and happy crafting!

Your Next Stamp Sweet Holiday Cookies!

12:00 AM 1 Comments


Hello! I wanted to pop in and share this cute little project I made using the adorable YNS Sweet Holiday Cookies Stamp Set! I also used a fun Silhouette file called 3D Gingerbread Milk Carton Box.

I stamped these cuties with Black Olive Ink, colored with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating Sweet Holiday Cookies Die Set. Then I cut out all the gingerbread house pieces with my Silhouette machine and started putting everything together! To complete it, I added the cute clothespin to close the top of the box, and some red and white baker's twine to the wreath.


I think it turned out so stinkin' CUTE! Love it and I just adore these sweet cookies!!!


Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a very merry Christmas!

Hello! Welcome to day 4 of the YNS Christmas Series! We are showcasing 5 holiday stamp sets and Karen is offering them for 50% off during the series at the YNS Store!

For my card today, I used the adorable Merry Mouse Eve Stamp Set


I stamped this sweet image with Black Olive Ink directly onto my card front and colored with Copics.

I also added some dots using a white gel pen.


The sentiment comes from the Good Glidings stamp set, as do the snowflake images. Finally, I framed this cutie using a die from the Stitched Rectangle Frames Die Set.

Hello! Welcome to day 3 of the YNS Christmas Series! We are showcasing 5 holiday stamp sets and Karen is offering them for 50% off during the series at the YNS Store!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the fun set, Happy Egg Nog Season. I'm not much of a fan of egg nog, but my hubby loves the stuff lol! 


I stamped 3 of the images from the set with Black Olive Ink, colored with Copics, and cut them out with the coordinating Happy Egg Nog Season Die Set. I sponged the background and layered some dp from the Mint Cocoa Kisses 6x6 Paper Pad on the bottom. I stamped the sentiment directly on the card front and then added my images. So cute and festive!

Your Next Stamp Holiday Hugs!

12:00 AM 0 Comments

Hello! I was so exited to finally ink up this adorable little mouse from the Holiday Hugs Stamp Set. I just love him!!! As soon as I saw this sentiment in the set, I knew I wanted to use it with the new Hugs Word Die Set. So super sweet!

I started by stamping this cutie with Black Olive Ink, coloring with Copics, and cutting him out with the coordinating Holiday Hugs Die Set. I sponged the background with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. Then I spritzed with some water and splattered with some white and black watercolor paint.

I cut out the HUGS and sponged the letters with some Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink. I stamped the sentiment directly onto my background, masking the "hugs" with tape. I then inked up the sentiment and removed the tape so that the hugs wasn't stamped. I added my die cut hugs sentiment underneath and my adorable image and it was complete!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have some crafting time today!
