Warm Wishes

Hi and welcome to my blog! I love a cup of hot tea in the evenings when it is frosty outside. So I have been enjoying tea quite a bit lately! I made a card using this neat stamp from Just For Fun called Stamptangle Tea.



The cups were colored using Zig watercolor pens. The pens have a very pointed tip and are great for coloring the stamptangle stamps. I fussy cut the stamp, added stickles glitter to the "steam" and pop dotted it to the card. I cut a window using the Grand Madison Window die by Memory Box. I made "snow" by using a Versa Mark pen and adding white glitter embossing powder. The blue piece was adhered behind the window and also pop dotted to the card. For the background I ran white card stock through a Sizzix embossing folder. The saying is from the Sentiments 2 unmounted sheet.

Thanks so much for stopping by. We hope to see your wonderful creations in our challenge this month which is Music and use green, purple and gold on your card. You might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Warm Wishes!

Patterned Paper Series #3

Happy Valentine's Day! Welcome back to my patterned paper series. On my card today I used some punches and dies to cut hearts from patterned paper scraps.



I arranged the hearts across the card. The cute cat stamp is from Penny Black and it was colored using Tombow markers. The saying was computer generated. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a Happy Valentine's Day!

Just For Fun February Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog. It is time for another challenge at Just For Fun Stamps! The theme for this challenge is Music and add purple, green and gold. Here is the birthday card I made below.



First I stamped and embossed the Streamer stamp using gold glitter embossing powder. The powder was also used on the candle flame and cupcake holder. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the Birthday Cupcake stamp and pop dotted it to the card. I used a music note die ( no brand ) and adhered it over the card. The saying from the Sentiments 1 unmounted sheet was stamped under the music notes. Star sequins and green enamel dots were added for embellishment.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope that you will join in the challenge. We would love to see what you make! You might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Have a wonderful day!

Patterned Paper Series #2

Welcome back to my patterned paper series! Valentine's Day will be here soon. Have you started on your cards yet? I hope this card will inspire you to use those patterned paper scraps that we all seem to have lying around. Today I have used strips of different patterned papers to fill in a heart die.



I glued strips of patterned paper behind the Nellie Snellen heart die. I stamped the Inkadinkado cat, fussy cut him and added him over the heart. The cat paws are stickers. The saying is from Just For Fun Stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Love Is In The Air!

Hello and welcome to my blog! I want to show you a Valentine card I made. I can't believe that Valentine's Day will be here soon!  At Just For Fun they have so many wonderful stamps to use for this special day. You can see them here.


I used one of the Postal Hearts on this card. I embossed it using black embossing powder, colored it using alcohol markers and fussy cut it to fit over the heart embossed Spellbinder die. I added a punched border, ribbon, cord and silver enamel dots for embellishment. 

You still have time to join in the challenge this month. The theme is to use blue and silver. We hope to see you there!

Have a great day!

Party Time
