Butterfly Kisses

Hi! I hope you are having a good day. I was playing with string art recently and on this card the string art came out looking like a Gladiolus flower, so I used the Colorblock Butterfly from Just For Fun and added it to the card. I stamped it using watercolor markers and then fussy cut it. The saying is from the Sentiments 3 unmounted sheet. I stamped it on a Spellbinders Fancy Tag die.


We have a fun challenge going on and this month and the theme is to use red, white and blue colors on your project. I hope you will join in and you might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

Shabby Chic #13

Hello! I hope you are enjoying your day. I am back with another shabby chic card. For some reason I had a hard time getting this one together. I found the Spellbinders background die (Bow Elegance) in one of my bags that had already been cut out. I adhered it to white glitter card stock. I stamped the flower (by Recollections) onto another Spellbinders die, colored the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, and pop dotted it to the center of the card. I added the Memory Box Fresh Foliage and Cheery Lynn Exotic Butterfly dies for embellishments. Ribbon and pearls were also added.



Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. I hope you have a blessed day!

Just For Fun July Challenge

Hi and welcome to my blog. Are you looking forward to the Fourth? We always love watching the fireworks in our town. How about you? The challenge at Just For Fun this month is to use the colors red, white and blue. Your card does not have to be a July 4th card but I made a July 4th card to show you that you do not have to necessarily use patriotic symbols. On my card I used the Just For Fun Birthday Cupcake stamp and some fun dies.


I started with a striped embossed blue background. I used the cascading stars from Spellbinders, by cutting a few from that die and adding them to the top of the card. I inlaid red stars into two of the white stars. The letters USA are dies from Momenta. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the cupcake and pop dotted it to the card. Star sequins were also added. I made the banner by hand and used the saying from the Sentiments 1 unmounted sheet.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you will join our challenge. We would love to see what you create with these colors!

Happy July 4th!

Shabby Chic #12

Hi and welcome to my blog. I am sharing another shabby chic card today. Quite a few years ago I bought some shaped card stock to make some different shaped cards with. It has been a long time since I have brought those card stocks out to play with, so I decided to use one for this card. I cut the card stock in half and folded it in half, now I have two pretty scalloped edges.


I stamped the butterfly ( by Anita ), colored it with watercolor crayons, fussy cut it and adhered it to the card. I added ribbon, handmade flowers ( from the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die ) and a leaf die ( Memory Box ) to the side of the saying ( Sparkle N Sprinkle ). I used the Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2 die for my saying.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

I'm a Little Teapot

Hi Everyone! I suppose you remember the children's song - "I'm a Little Teapot." I was reminded of it when making this card. The challenge at Just For Fun this month is to make a shaped card, so I chose to make a teapot shaped card. Who doesn't like a warm cup of tea, even in the summer sometimes!


I used patterned paper from my stash and sponged Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges of the teapot. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the Brushed Floral stamp and added it to the teapot. I also pop dotted another flower to the top of the original one for dimension. The saying is from the Sentiments 3 unmounted sheet.

You still have a few more days left to enter the challenge. I hope to see you there!

Have a wonderful day!

Shabby Chic #11

Hi and welcome to my blog! I have always loved this sweet stamp from Stampa Rosa. I found this imge in my stash that had been smooshed with silver and gold metallics, but they brushed off! I wiped off all the silver and gold and used some metallic rub ons instead to make subtle colors on the image. This time the colors stayed on.


I cut out the image using the Spellbinders small oval die, the leaves are from a Memory Box die - Fresh Foliage, and the frame is from the Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 die. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day!
