Here's a fun card! LOVE it. I got the inspiration from Avery Elle. I'm entering it into their challenge. I hope it'll be accepted. I used Avery Elle paper but I didn't use their stamps. If I have time, i'll make another card using their stamps. Oops lol :) I'll also enter it into Simon Says Stamps Challenge. That can be found here.

The stamps and dies I used were from PTI. I absolutely love this set! The cheveron stamp is from PTI as well. All of the ink is from SU! I had a few extra flowers left over so I put them in the inside of the card. Well I hope you like the way the card turned out :) Thanks for stopping by!

I will also be entering this card into Oozak's Challenge found here. I LOVE their site. Such great prices!

i love cruising through life with you

Here's a simple card! I blended the background with three different shadow inks. I used Simon Says Stamps Falling Hearts die to make all of the little cuts in the background. The bike (haven't gotten the dies yet which I really need to) was cut from a Lawn Fawn stamp. I colored the image with Copic markers. Lastly, the sentiment was stamped, cut and placed on the card with dimensionals. I'll be entering this into two challenge: Lawn Fawn's Stamp a Scene and Simon Says: Anything Goes Challenge. Thanks for stopping by :)

Here's the final result. The background stamp is Paper Smooches. The coloring was done with Copic Markers.  I used mostly PTI and Stampin' Up paper. "Excited for You" is from Simon Says! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Too cute I might add. The other stamp is from Kelly Purkey's Rad Stamp Set. All of the paper and ink is from Stampin' Up. Hope you like the way the card turned out! :)

thinking of you

I heard you're amazing...

This was was fun/difficult to design. It was probably just me. I wanted to keep it simple but I don't know if I accomplished that. lol Anyways, I used a lot of different products here. Simon Says stamps (which I double stamped in 2 colors if you can tell). I put them on a piece of cardstock that I had went over with Hero Arts' Shadow Ink. I kind of wanted to make it look like an old timey polaroid. The design follows the sketch over at the PTI challenge. The twine I used is from here. It's not divine twine but it's way less expensive and works wonderfully! Hope you liked the card today!

Love you

Here's a sweet card. May send it to my husband when he goes on deployment! Entering this card into this challenge here. The big stamp is from PTI along with the little sentiment at the bottom. The others are from Love the background stamp. It's from Hero Arts. :) I'm probably going to enter this into Hero Arts February challenge as well! The last challenge I'm entering this into Simon Says Challenge here.

I think you're pretty amazing

I think I'm obsessed with washi tape for whatever reason. Probably because it's awesome! I took a piece of cardboard and covered it with tapes then cut a circle out using the Big Shot and Sizzix die. Stamped a sentiment on the center of the cardstock and slapped the "washi-stock" on with some foam adhesives. Voila! :)


Here's a nice and simple card. Papertrey Ink paper. Simon Says Stamps. Hero Arts Shadow Inks and Papertrey Ink's black embossing powder. I love the simplicity of this card. :) entering it into here!!

you light up my life

This card was inspired by Ashley Newell's card and will be entered over at Papertrey Ink's Challenge. It's also being entered into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week! It's featuring hearts! I popped up the lamp shades to add some demention. I really like how this on turned out. Very modern if I do say so myself :) Thanks for stopping by!

watt's up?

Watt's up!? Love that saying. Papertrey Ink paper, some twine and a cute little light bulb made for the perfect simple card. Inspired by Ashley Newell and will be entering it over at Papertrey Ink's Challenge. Also into the online card class! 

thinking of you

Happy Birthday

This card was super easy but fun. It's good if you need a card in a hurry! It was inspired by Maile Belles' card. I used copic markers to fill in the blues! 


This card was inspired by Cristina Kowalczyk's design. I love the geometric shapes. They are so in style right now! :)


This is a fun little card. I basically made over the card in the online card class that's going on right now. I just got a ton of new hero arts inks and I have to say that I am in LOVE with them. They blend phenominally. This was my first attempt at masking. This card was actually really a pain. I kept messing up here and there so I had to continually tweek it. I eventually threw my hands up and said it's going to be as simple as it can get! ha.
Entering this card into Simon Says Challenge here!!


This one was fun! I used Papertrey Ink paper. The background stamp was from Lawn Fawn. The other stamps were randoms from Simon Says Stamp. The inspiration for the card came from Jessica Witty's design. I can't tell you exactly how but it did :) lol I'm also entering this into CAS-ual Fridays challenge. :)
One last challenge is Simon Says Stamp here.

i love you.

So here's a fun card. Got this inspiration from Ashley Cannon Newell over at Papertrey Ink. Her card inspired mine. I used a fun boarder stamp from Papertrey Ink and random washi tapes. Loved how this turned out! I'm also using this over at CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week! :)

Hello, Foxy

This last one might be my favorite. I just love it so much. The stamp itself is from Stampin' Up as well as the textured woodgrain impression. The tape and ink are from Simon Says. I colored the fox with Copic Markers. My husband got them for me for Christmas. LOVE them! They're pretty amazing. I definitely need to work on my Copic skills though. ;)

Also entering this into CAS-ual Fridays challenge. :)


Second, why not make a Valentine's Day card!? All of the products are from Simon Says. I love the clean look to this card. It turned out really good, I think at least! :)

New Cards

Here are just some new cards using random things I've gotten over the past couple of months. Most is from Simon Says Stamp. :) Love that store. I'll be entering these into the Anything Goes Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog. I'm also participating in the online card class I found over at Kristina Werner's blog. Hope you enjoy. :)

Also, sorry about the poor photo quality. That iPhone has a mind of its own and takes pictures however it wants to :P I'll post separate pages for these cards.

First up, I love the window idea. This is a sketch layout in the card class. Super simple but very effective for making a lovely card! Oh, Hello stamp is from Stampin' Up. Paper and "today is a new day" are from Simon Says.
