How do I like my cake...

I created a fun card today...
I used the Happiness is Homemade collection by Echo Park and paired it up with this fun stamp One to Brag by Art Impressions - fun to paper piece :)

I mounted the image on foam squares.
I thought the Riley stamp fit this image perfectly so I stamped it on the inside of the card :)

May today be sweet

Playing again :)  This time I used some older Jen Hadfield paper by Pebbles along with some stamps and die from Papertrey Ink.  Once again, used the Bowl of Sunshine stamp set, The umbrella and jar stamp are from the Friendship Jar Summer Fillers.


I like how easy it is to create a table cloth/napkin... with just a couple of triangles.  The bowl and jar are mounted on foam squares

And when I saw this inspiration, it made me think of refreshing summer drinks... so I went with that theme.

A little Shabby Chic today

Real time crafting and posting here and I have to be quick as my grand daughter will be here shortly as we babysit every Saturday.

I used the Bloom Collection by Crate Paper.  I think I need to order another pack :)

First up, I paired it with the Bowl of Sunshine stamp set by Papertrey Ink.  

To stamp the word lemonade, I taped off the words on the stamp I didn't want, inked the stamp, took off the tape and then stamped.  The bowl is mounted on foam squares for dimension.


Playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches: 

And once again in the Fusion challenge with the colors: 


Next up, some fussy cutting and some dies.  You know me and my tea... I'm all over this tea cup :)

I fussy cut the tea cup from some of the pattern paper then mounted on foam squares.  I then die cut some sugar cubes and a spoon using a Simon Says Die.  Then of course some stitching... I love my stitching!

Prettiest Apron

When I saw the Happiness is Homemade collection by Echo Park paper, I had to have it.  So bright and cheery!  I love this tag, how cute.  I then used the Bowl of Sunshine stamp set by Papertrey Ink.


I am playing along with the Simon Says Challenge - Anything Goes and the Fusion challenge, I went with the photo inspiration.

Girl Boss

Can you tell I had some time to myself on Sunday ;)  I used it to my full advantage.  Here is another card that I created.  I used an old Heidi Swapp collection.  I love the blue rose paper, it is just like one of my favorite Jamberry wraps!  I cut out the tags using the Tall Tag Trio by Reverse Confetti, and then added sentiments from the #hastag bossy stamp set by Butterfly Reflections and the little coffee cup is from the Morning Cup set by Studio L2E.



I played along with a couple of challenges:

Forever Love card

I am playing along with sketch Saturday:

Me-ology trio of cards

I dug out some old, but gorgeous papers to play with today.  I used the Me-ology collection from Fancy Pants - one of my favorite collections!



First up, love the bicycle... I love bicycles in general so they always catch my eye and this one makes me eager for spring as I purchased a vintage bicycle last fall that does have a basket on it.  I want to paint it and add it to my garden.  I bit if fussy cutting but otherwise all die cuts and scraps... easy peesy.



I played along with the sketch from:

Next up another simple card (for me anyways).  I fussy cut the flower and the sentiment strips from some pattern paper.  The 'beautiful' is a die from Concord & 9th.


I am playing along with the Paper Players: 


Finally, I love this card... lots of layers and paper piecing.  I used the Wakely Girl and Brystyl Girl from Unity.

Using Christmas themed paper for Valentines Day

I had a bit of time to play tonight.  Not true... I made a bit of time to play.  I have to force myself to make the time!  Anyways I used some Christmas themed paper (can you tell?)

I used the Comfort & Joy collection by My Mind's Eye along with some dies from MFT and Simon Says.  The U was cut with my Silhouette. 


I stitched the U and then mounted it with foam squares.
