Easter's On It's Way!

Hi everyone! Easter is almost here and I want to share some cards I created to give to my loved ones on Easter Day!

I was browsing through a local scrapbook store a couple of weeks ago and came across some stamps and embellishments I had never heard of! I was instantly smitten with the adorable images and especially with the 'pin' embellishments! This is a 'before' picture of them. The stamps and pins are from Darcie's Heart and Home collection and this set is 'Ears To You'- so cute!

And here are the Easter goodies I created with them! The images are stamped and then colored and then the pin goes on top to enhance the already cute image giving it a popped out look! Ingenious!

This small scalloped card features the bright and happy papers from the Lawn Fawn 'Hello Sunshine' 6x6 paper pack. I layered a die cut flourish with some colorful flowers and one of the charming sentiments in the set.

This card has softer pastel colors courtesy of the Teresa Collins 'Sweet Afternoon' 6x6 paper pad and the image is stamped on a gorgeous scalloped oval die-cut! Lots of felt flowers accent this cutie!

Back to color again with this card. I used Lawn Fawn's 'Let's Polka' 6x6 paper pack and colored the flower images from the set to match the bright paper.

Lastly, a card with a vintage feel. I inked all of the edges of the card stock along with the designer papers from My Mind's Eye 'Howdy Doody 6x6 paper pad. Charming banner flags and sweet buttons are the finishing touches!

Bee Amazing!

Hi everyone! I have another fun card to share that I created with the Bee Unique stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps!

For this card, I combined the little bee with the beautiful flowers and leaves from Flower Doodles in pretty Spring colors! I stamped the bee on a scalloped circle and then popped that off the background with some sheer ribbon behind it. A few pearls give it a nice, soft touch! Plus I added a curved sentiment from the Bee Sweet set!

A CAS inside with another gorgeous flower and a simple sentiment also from the Bee Sweet set. Such a pretty way to say Thank You!

Be Inspired Again #51

Hi everyone! The Be Inspired Challenge for The Alley Way Stamps has changed and now you have a whole month to play along and get your projects linked up for a fab prize! Not only will you win two stamp sets but you can also win a guest designer spot for a future BIC challenge! 

I love the inspiration photo for this month's challenge. It's bright and happy and red and white which is one of my favorite color combos! So here is a little more crafty inspiration for you to pull out your TAWS stamps and create something great!

The Flower Doodles stamp set was used to create this eye catching border strip which is embossed in bright red! I added some dry embossing at the top and a sweet sentiment at the bottom. All very cheery on red card stock!

For the inside, I kept the cheer going with more bright embossed images and a simple get well sentiment. This will definitely brighten someone's day!

Just Beecause!

Hi everyone! I am having so much fun playing with the new Bee Unique stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps! Who can resist an adorable bee and sweet sentiments?!

I combined the cute bee with word stamps from another new set, Bee Sweet and created this happy tag!  Yellow and black is always such a striking color combo and it works so well with this set. I added in a die cut flourish and a few die cut flowers that have all been stamped with Bitty Border images for an even more interesting effect! The smaller tag was stamped with an image from Petal Pushers and layered with a vellum tag. This will be perfect for a Spring gift!

Mini Clothespin Fun!

Hi everyone! We are having a little mix-up fun over at the Timeless Twine blog and my task was to create something 'mini'. Well, I just recently completed a mini album and wasn't quite ready to tackle another so I came up with a fun project on mini clothespins!

These little cuties are 2 inches in length and are adorable on their own but I gathered a few supplies and gave each a different look! There are so many ways to dress up mini clothespins and they are great little embellishments for so many craft projects!

Of course, as this is a Twine-ista project, I had to cover a clothespin with twine! I actually cut some heavy card stock a bit narrower than the pin and covered that with the twine. Otherwise, it would have been way too bulky! A few sequins add a bit of glimmer!

The next clothespin is dressed up with stamped images! Brightly colored arrows were stamped on card stock and topped with more brightly colored mini hearts! All of these images are from the new Oh Snap stamp set from Bella Creationz.  Super simple but super cute!

Lastly, this one is covered in a fun chevron pattern washi tape! Because this washi tape has a white background, I layered two strips together for a brighter look. With all of the gorgeous washi tape out there, the transformations are endless!

Hope you enjoyed this fun project and are inspired to dress up your own clothespins!
