Smile and say Photo Bomb!

Every now and then a stamp set comes along that just makes me squeal with happiness…yes, I said squeal!

I love this stamp set because it reminds me of the Oscars selfie that was so popular a few years ago! I used versa mark to create the air mail background and just love how it turned out. This stamp set is great to use because you get to practice all the fun copic coloring!

The smile sentiment is just to die for because the script goes with every sentiment! Hope you get a smile in the mail really soon from someone you love!

Merry Hedgehog Kisses!

I finally got my hands on this adorable stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  It has been sold out for months! But at last…

I have made a series of Christmas cards using adorable critters and this is the first of that series! For the background, I used distress inks in a sorta non-traditional Christmas color combination.

For Mrs. Hedgehog, I used wink of stella to give a glittery coat for the holiday season.

Also, I used embossing paste to create a snowy background and I added small gold snowflakes to tie in the gold Merry Christmas sentiment! Love this time of year!

Never say Never! Bok!

I made Thanksgiving cards this year which is a first for me! Bok bok bok.

So for the inside of my turkey, I used this adorable set from Lawn Fawn! I love the little corn on the cob! Remember as a kid when you would draw those silly hand turkeys!? This card reminds me of that fun activity!

I added little googley eyes for some fun details!

Hope you and your family have a wonderful turkey day!

Monster Hugs Being Sent Your Way!

Sometimes you need a hug…even if it is from (cute) monsters!

I am so glad I bought this stamp set before it was sold out on lawn fawn. It is way too cute to pass up for Halloween!  I colored the little monsters to match the cool starry background. I luckily found some star bling in my stash.

I like that this card screams happy! Umm….scary and happy – perfect for Halloween!

Air Mail From the Heart!

I did not realize but I hoard and love all things related to Airmail!

airmail2

I absolutely love the cellophane airmail envelope! It has the perfect combination of sheerness where you can see the little note inside! I would love to receive that envelope in the mail! For this card, I used some patterned airmail paper from Martha Stewart and layered these adorable postcards for the background.  I stamped the airmail banner and border using Lawn Fawn Stamps.

The adorable little girl and sentiment are from Mama Elephant. If you cannot tell from all my latest posts – I am such a huge fan of Mama Elephant stamps! They are adorable!

Hello Lovely!

I almost died when I saw this cute post over at Lea’s Cupcakes’ blog that I had to make my own:

lovely1

I created the saying “Hello Lovely” because I overheard someone say it the other day and it was so sweet!

I added foam dots to the grassy polkadot hill to give the card some fun layers.

Ack! So cute! Also, I made my own “Hello” flair using some epoxy stickers and a Martha Stewart punch:

I found that this combination was a bit more cost effective instead of buying the entire epoxy sticker kit.  I also found a seller on etsy that sold epoxy stickers in sets of 50 or 100:

The only difference is the etsy epoxy stickers are more flexible or softer vs. the epiphany epoxy stickers are harder and do not bend.  I think both are great options and glad I have a variety of them!

Gingerbread Man Likes to Shake It!

Run gingerbread man, run! Well, maybe just shake it…

These delightful Christmas Shaker Flip It cards so fun to open and close!

I have fallen in love again with the silver liquid pearls that you see all over the card. I was thinking to try some gold, white and maybe black liquid pearls to see if they are just as cute. I’ve decided if I start making a few Christmas cards on the weekends that come time for Christmas I will have enough to send family and friends!  Here’s to cute Christmas cards!

There is just something so delightful when you shake the cards then beads, bling, and little goodies bounce around!

Riding along in Noah’s Ark!

Sometimes being ship wrecked with great company isn’t so bad…

noahthinkingofyou

I’ve decide before I purchase any new stamps, I have to make a card with the stamp sets I have now….We will have to see how long this pledge lasts. lol!  I’ve made a few cards before using this stamp set but for some reason it never really looked cute enough to make it to my blog.

noahthinkingofyou2

This one I think turned out pretty adorable! I also made it so the ark moves back and forth along the bottom of the card!  Cracks me up when the ship turns upside down!

Christmas Just Around the Corner!

It’s never too early to start on Christmas cards right?

I have officially retired all of my ribbon and am wondering if anyone wants a nice neat box of it!
