Papertrey Ink & Simon Says Stamp - Onesie and Oh Baby Dies

Hey Crafty Friends,

I hope you are having a good day.  My daughter is a photographer and she has several friends/clients who are having babies.  She asked me to make a few baby cards for her to give to them soooooo.... I went to town!  I used a onesie die that I have from PTI forever!  I made two cards. One using the die cut and one using the negative die cut paper.

This first card uses the onesie die cut from PTI.  I also put the Oh Baby die cut from SSS as the sentiment.  I really like the patterned paper  that I chose for these two cards.

I liked it so much I couldn't toss out the die use portion!  I had to use it to make a shaker card!  I mixed sentiment stamps to add the sentiments to these cards.

Thank you for stopping in!

My Favorite Things - Let's Stick Together

Happy Monday Peeps!

Today I am sharing 4 super cute cards that I made using the stamp and dies set from MFT called Let's Stick Together.  I'm still going strong with my quest to make birthday cards and while this set is more like a "couples" type of set, I improvised!

On this first card I used the "stitched dome" - I have to check the actual name of the die cut and  then sponged some clouds on it with Tumbled Glass Oxide ink.  I then attached the little stamped images that I colored with copic markers on the dies cut.  The sentiment is from another MFT stamp set.

Here is the second card that I made using the stamp set.  Again its colored with copics and I attached these directly onto the card front.

This one is so fun to me. I love the little cactus with the sombrero!  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from another MFT stamp set.

This is the last card I made using this stamp set.  I made this adorable shaker card!

I used some Distress oxide inks to make up the background in the  shaker look like a desert sunset.  I then used the same colors to add clouds to the base of the card.  I think it looks amazing! 


There is a close up showing some movement.

I used the same copic colors on all of the images.

Thank you for stopping by!

My Favorite Things - Let's Toast Die Set

Happy Friday!

Today I am sharing a few cards that I made using the Let's Toast  Dies from MFT.  First of all I just want to say that I love how these cards came together!  It was quick and I love the quantity of glasses on each card.

First I die cut a ton of the various glass shapes.  I then used Distress Oxide Inks to quickly color them up.  One this first card I used a brick wall stencil to add a background wall then I added the glasses right on top.

I love the shimmer on the drinks!  

On the next card I again colored them up with Oxide inks.  It was quick and colorful!  I added some sequins for the bling on this card.

This is a one layer card so it is perfect for sending in the mail.

For the final card I made using this set I went all out! LOL!!! I tried to add as many glasses as I could on the card.

I used a background piece of patterned paper from my stash.  I again added lots of sequins.

I hope you like them!  It was a lot of fun making this set.  I used a few different MFT dies and stamp sets for the sentiments.

Thank you for poppin in!

Stamping Bella - Opal the Optimist

Hey there!

I hope your having a good week.  I wanted to share a card that I made for my sister's birthday using a stamp I've had for quite some time!  I felt it was very appropriate for my wine loving sister lol.

I colored it up with copic markers and there is a bit of shimmer with the Tonic Shimmer Pen that I added to the flowers and the wine glass and bottle.

Thank you for stopping by!

My Favorite Things - Birth-Yay

Hey Friends!

Today I have a card to share that I made for my cousins wife her her upcoming birthday.  I used the super adorable Birth-Yay stamp set from MFT.

I colored the image with copic markers and placed it on some torn vellum to kinda "tone down" the busy/colorful background.  I love how vibrant it looks!

Here are all the markers it took to make this happen!

Yep!  All of those.  :)

Thank you for stopping by!

My Favorite Things - Sweet Celebrations

Happy Monday!

Is there such a thing??  LOL, I was seriously considering staying home today!  Its raining here in San Diego today and you know people do not know how to drive in the rain!

Anyways, I made a card this weekend to send to one of my cousins for their birthday.  I want to send all of my cousins a handmade card this year for their birthday.  Here is card number one:

I love how this little turtle came out.  Since the majority of my cousins are male and in their 30's and 40's IDK what they are going to think about these sweet cards :).  BUT, they will be getting them so we will see.  This card uses the MFT Sweet Celebrations stamp set and a die cut that I had in my stash.  I colored it up with copic markers and added some soft clouds with theMFT Clouds stencil and some Tumbled Glass Distresss Oxide Ink.  I added some Shimmer Pen to the banner and his little hat.  

Thank you for stopping by!
