You're so Tweet!

Happy Tuesday crafty friends! This is my last week of a wonderful four-week vacation, boo. Although I am ready to put the flip flops to the weekends and get back to reality!

I finally got my hands on this older Clearly Besotted stamp set - Some Birdie Loves You! It was backordered for so long!


I am just in-love with these birds! The illustration of the stamps is, in my opinion, the sweetest! I used my Copic Sketch and looked up love birds on google to get the right coloration. I then fussy cut my images. For the background I used my favourite MFT could stencil, this is a must-have in my craft room! The foliage is an older Memory Box die as is the rainbow.  

Once my card was put together with these elements, I stamped the music notes from the Some Birdie Loves You set and white embossed the sentiment (same set) on a Lawn Fawn banner.

I finished my project off with Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets!

Thanks so much for taking the time!

CFC180 - Friendship

Happy Friday crafty peeps! Time for another CAS-ual Friday's Challenge! The theme this time around is Friendship :)

I was so excited to have received my new CAS-ual Friday's stamps in-time for this challenge!




I decided on the new Tutu set for this project in rainbow order nonetheless :) I broke out my Distress Oxides for this one and do they stamp like a dream! I used my Misti to properly line up my ballerina's. Once my stamping was complete I decided to use some black enamel accents to make the flowers pop.

I then decided to use this fantastic sentiment from the Special Delivery stamp set and also added the hearts from the new Puffy Heart Love set. 

I then added some black cardstock to accent the panel, put my card together and the of course, finished with some Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins!

Summer Birthday!

I have so been off the grid over my vacation, my husband went back to work yesterday therefore I now have more time for my craft room over the last of my vacation!

I had such fun making this project, it's a tri-fold birthday "ocean" card.


I started by cutting my Bristol card stock to 5.5 x 12 I then used a mix of Distress Inks on the entire background. On top I used a Hero Arts waves stencil with the same Distress Inks mix I then sprayed the entire piece with my Distress sprayer for texture.  I die cut my ocean floor to 12 inches and used a Lawn Fawn Stitched border die for the top. I also used Distress Inks for the impression of sand. I then scored everything at 4inches and then glued my ocean bottom on the base.

For the sharks and fishes I used a mix of Avery Elle's Hello Chum and Lawn Fawn's Duh-Nuh. The colored fish are from Lawn Fawn and the black are by AE in the Hello Chum set.  


I colored all my images with various Copic Sketch markers. The sentiments are from Hello Chum and are embossed in some of my new WOW Glitter embossing powders, this one is Teal. I finished off the project with glossy accents and a sprinkling of sequins! 

The space in the middle panel will be for my message.

Thanks so much for taking the time, I will have more projects up this week!

CFC179 - Dies Only, No Stamps!

Happy Friday crafty friends! Time for another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge over at the Challenge Blog!  I am currently away on summer vacation so my blog has been quiet over the last little while! Feels good to take a few minutes and give the blog some care!


Rainbows always make me happy, so I picked a few of my favourite coloured card stock and used the Thanks die from the CAS-ual Friday's Smiling Fri-Dies set. I die cut my paper with fun foam and StickIt on the back for dimension and to make placement easier on the background.  I used coordinating Distress Inks to give my card stock some depth and then placed my die cuts. 

I felt it needed a little something more so I die cut a few of the 4-petal Fri-dies to add in a few places with coordinating sequins.  I then added some Nuvo Drops also in rainbow order.  As simple as that!

Baby gift tag with Lawn Fawn

Happy Thursday crafty friends! I begin my month of summer vacation at noon today and I am over the moon excited!  I will be away for 10-days which means limited posts from me here :( but I will be at the beach! :)

This is a special baby boy gift tag for my aesthetician who is actually being induced today!



I used all Lawn Fawn products for this tag with the exception of the cloud stencil for the background by MFT and the Fuse tool in-case she wanted to keep the tag as a keepsake.  I Copic colored my images and used some Distress inks on my blades of grass and for my clouds. 

I can't wait to hear from her when the baby comes! 

Thanks for taking the time!

Christmas in July

Happy Friday crafty friends! Friday = a new CAS-ual Fridays Challenge! This week it is Christmas in July! Almost feels like winter here, has not been the best summer weather so far...




I love Prismacolor pencils on Kraft! So I chose this fantastic mistletoe stamp from the CAS-ual Friday Mistletoe and Holly stamp set. I started by embossing my sentiment from the same stamp set with Ranger red glitter embossing powder. I then stamped my mistletoe with Versafine Onyx black ink repeatadly to create my background. To blend my colored pencils I used Gamsol, I love the effect it gives to the image.  I then used white liquid perfect pearls to make the berries pop, put my card together and topped it off with some red Pretty Pink Posh shiny sequins.

Wplus9 Special Birthday Card

I have not posted in so long, I have been away on a business trip for the last week. I missed my little blog!

This is a special card, I made it for my favourite aunt who turned 70 on July 5 and hasn't been well.  She is a very special lady in my life and she lives in my hometown therefore, I see her maybe once a year.


I used the gorgeous Wplus9 Kind Soul stamp set, the name of that stamp was entirely appropriate and the floral is simply beautiful.  I gold embossed the stamp on Bristol paper and used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  This floral card is very much my aunt.  I topped it off with a Lime Citron sentiment. My family is all french and these nice french sentiments are very hard to find.  If anyone is looking, Lime Citron is a great choice and has a nice selection.

I finished everything off with Pretty Pink Posh sequins!
Thanks for taking the time!
