Everything Stops for Walkies!


I would have posted this sooner, but having some computer issues at the moment and attempting to blog from my phone...

This weekend kicked off the CHA2017 trade show, here in my hometown of Phoenix, AZ- I so wish I was there! Anyway, I'm popping in today to share one of the cards I made with one of the new releases from LDRS Creative... Everything Stops for Walkies!

It is absolutely the cutest and I had so much fun making this card.


Sorry to cut out the details, hope to update as soon my computer is back up and running!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Sweet Day

Happy New Year!

I'm finally jumping back onto the card making train, and kicking off the new year (2 weeks later...)  with a new card over on the LDRS Creative blog today!

Sweet Strawberry Fields

Now that Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought this adorable Strawberry Fields stamp would be a sweet start!

After coloring with copics, I fussy cut the image. Layered it on top of Fancy Squares & Little Things and Basic Stitched Flag dies, added a red heart doily, and adhered it all on a kraft cardstock piece trimmed slightly smaller than my cardbase and embossed with the Picnic Quilt embossing folder. Finished it off by stamping part of one sentiment from the Friendly Greetings set.

mice: C1, C3, C5, R20
strawberries: R32, R35, R46, R89, Y02, Y06, YG03, YG17, YG67, YR04

Kick Up Your Heels!

Happy *almost* New Year!!

Can you believe how quickly 2016 has flown by?

BUT before we ring in 2017... I'm sharing a card I made for the LDRS Creative blog today!

I decided this All Dressed Up: Love that Dress stamp, and sentiment from Uptown Sayings was a perfect match for a New Years card!

Kick Up Your Heels...

I colored with copics and die cut using the Fancy Rectangles & Layers die, adhered it to the red glitter paper and fussy cut out along the die cut since I had used the largest rectangle. Added sparkle to the dress and shoes with a glitter and white gel pen, finished off my card by adhering it to my card base with a coordinating blue foil card stock, and red bow!

skin: E000, E00, E21, R20, BV00
hair: C3, 100
dress/shoes: B24, B26, B29, R17, R37, R46

Wishing you all a FABULOUS 2017... until next year!

Penguin cuties

Hello Friends!

I'm over on the Passionate Paper Creations blog today sharing two cards I made with PPCF Facebook sponsor images by Conie Fong Art!

I'm a sucker for cute critters and in the winter that means sweet adorable penguins... I totally fell in LOVE with these two!

On this card, I used Joy to the World...

Joy Penguin

I colored the penguin with Copic markers and trimmed out the image (I accidentally printed him too close to some other images to use a diecut- oops!). I die cut layers of patterned papers using Creative Basics dies- Fancy Rectangles & Layers and Basic Stitched Flags. I also used the Picnic Quilt embossing folder for some texture on the blue cardstock layer.  Finally tied everything together with a red ribbon before attaching it to my card base.

penguin: N3, N5, N7, N9, R01, Y32, Y35
hat/scarf: R17, R37, R46, C0, C1
joy: R14, R17, G02, G05, G07, B24, B26, Y17
snow: B0000, B41

For my second card I used another sweet penguin, Snowy Delivering Presents...

Snowy Delivery

I also colored him in copics, but decided to use a different gray color family than on my first penguin. I kept this card pretty simple since there was so much going on with the stack of presents. The sentiment is pieced together from a couple of Lawn Fawn sets, Baaah Humbug and Toboggan Together. I used the Basic Stitched Flags again and finished it off with the doily behind the flags.

penguin: C3, C5, C7, C9, R01, Y32, Y35
hat: B24, B26, B29, C1, C3
mail/bag: E40, E41, G02, G05, G07
presents: B24, B26, BG11, BG13, BG15, G02, G05, G07,
R17, R37, R46, Y17, Y26, Y28

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with one last card before 2017!

Happy 50th Rhea!

Yesterday was Rhea's (of Passionate Paper Creations, & the owner of the PPCF Facebook group) *50th* birthday!  There's a ton of games and giveaways happening in the facebook group too...

I created this card for her using a digital image created just for her by Power Poppy, Orchid Dreams.

Birthday Orchids

I colored using Copics in her fave colors- purple & teal.  I die cut the image using the Fancy Squares and Little Things die set and trimmed out the corner flower to hang out. Embossed the purple layer using the Picnic Quilt embossing folder, and added a Basic Stitched Flag as a base for the teal foam thicker number stickers.

orchids: BV01, BV11, BV13, BV17, V01, 
leaves: YG03, YG17, YG67, 
pot: BG13, BG15, BG18, E31, E34
