Pretty Wreath Card

It has been a very cold and snowy January here and we're only half way through it. I hate this extreme cold but I do love seeing everything sparkle and shine. I just love how the trees look all layered in sparkly snow...so pretty! 
After my walk this morning seeing all this beauty I felt inspired to create but was to tired today to paint (which is what I had been planning to do). 
I did get myself down to my craft room and I had a very enjoyable afternoon creating some birthday cards. I am getting low on my birthday card stash and I thought I should get some made and ready to go!

I got a new stamp set right before Christmas and I have not had a chance to use it until today. It was also my first time really using my Disress Oxied Inks and I love how my card turned out. 

To create this 4x4 card I started off using a MFT burlap background stamp. I stamped it in a Hero Arts soft yellow ink. I distressed the edges of the card with some Vintage Photo and Antique Linen Distress Ink.
The Stamp set is from Concord and 9th, Love You, Meant it. I have wanted this set for a while and was so happy to add it to my collection.
I used SSS Khaki ink for the wreath and Black ink for the sentiment.
The flowers and the leaves were stamped with Distress Oxide inks... Wild Violet, Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint.

I made three more cards while I had the stamp set and inks out and I'll share them here over the next couple of days.

It's a cheerful springy card for this cold, snowy day and I had a lot of fun using this stamp set and using my new inks today!

One Snowflake 3 Cards

Well it's been a couple of weeks now since Christmas and I thought that it would be nice to send out some thank you notes to our family for their wonderful gifts that our boys received this Christmas.

I have always liked the 'thank you Snow much' sentiment and I love snowflakes too so I thought that I would make some pretty cards this year. 

I recently got a new Cricut machine and I thought it would be nice to use the Cricut markers for the sentiments and an image from the Winter Lace Cricut cartridge. I used one snowflake image for all three cards.

I also decided to use my Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder on one of the cards for snowflakes overload...lol

The snow globe was cut from a PaperTrey Ink die. The label tied to it with the sentiment is from the Cricut Forever Young cartridge and the background stamp on the small square card is the wood grain background stamp from MFT.  It was inked up with the SSS Dark Chocolate ink. 

The backgrounds were created with some distress inks, Broken China, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch and a mini distress blending tool.  

Now for the hard part, to get my boys to fill them out and get them into the mail!!

Crazy For Unicorns!

Last month was my birthday and I received many crafty presents, one of them was a super cute unicorn stamp set from Simon Says Stamp! 
I was excited to get this stamp set and today was the day I got some time in my craft room to use it. I coloured  several unicorns and wound up creating two cute cards with them.
Here is what I came up with:

 Here are the supplies I used to create this card:

and the colours I used to colour everything in:

The second card I made was a lot of fun to make but caused me a lot of trouble!! I decided to make a shaker card and everything that could go wrong with this card did...lol  
I forgot to stamp the front of the card before I assembled it and then once I did everything started to leak out!! I was able to fix it but I had to alter my sentiment and put it onto a banner across the front. All in all I love how it turned out:

and here is all the supplies I used to make this card: 

I explained my process of how I created these cards over on my YouTube channel, so I thought I would share that video here too...


It's been a hot and rainy day here, I'm hoping that tomorrow is a little nicer outside although I did have a wonderful day hiding out in my craft room! Well until next time...

Pretty Roses

Well today's card was really fun to make. I pulled out one of my all time favourite stamp sets from Papertrey Ink and some pretty pink and green inks and got started. 
This card was for my mom, last week was her birthday so I had a whole rose theme going on with her gift and a coordinating card. I got her some rose scented hand cream and soap and then some matching pink roses for her home. Making the card was just the icing on the cake as far is matching everything all together!!

The roses on the card was stamped using the Papertrey Ink "The Sweet Life" Stamp set and with some Simon says and Hero Arts inks. 
The Happy was cut out with my Silhouette and the Elegance font. I cut it out three times and then layered them on top of each other for some depth. I then covered the "Happy" with some clear Wink of Stella.  The birthday was stamped 
with a stamp from a My Pink Stamper set Birthday Crazy.  To balance out the card I used some Antique Linen Distress Ink on the top left and bottom right corners  :)
