Beaver Birthday!

Hi everyone! My niece recently celebrated her 14th birthday and I wanted to make her a card that  was still cute-sy but didn't make her feel like a kid. This 'Dam Good' stamp set by Darcies Heart and Home fits the bill perfectly!

The cute little beaver was stamped in Memento Tuxedo black and colored with Copic markers to match the coordinating tin pin embellishment that fits right on the face. I also added in two fish-y balloons and after coloring them, gave them a nice glittery sheen with a Wink of Stella pen.

I chose patterned papers in a great combo of coral and aqua to match the balloons and layered them for an interesting background! The sentiment was stamped in a pretty coral too and die cut into a small plaque shape. a few colored enamel dots were the finishing touch!

Flower Garden!

Hi everyone! Spring has sprung and in my neck of the woods we are just starting to see the beginning shoots of tulips and daffodils emerge. These burgeoning blooms inspired this lovely garden card made with the Simon Says Stamp March card kit.

I started by deciding on which of the patterned 6x6 papers I wanted to use. The patterns work so well together that I could really mix and match them in different shapes, edges and sizes. I also tucked in some tiny leaf sprigs in two different shades of green.

The Carta Bella Spring Market sticker sheet included in this kit is full of sweet and colorful flowers that look beautiful with the patterned papers. I layered these with one of the charming sentiment stickers and gave the card a bit of dimension by popping some of the areas up with foam tape. A few assorted rain dots are the final touch!

Scatter Kindness!

Hi everyone! I am just loving the color combo for the new Color Throwdown Challenge #487. Red and mint have always been one of my favorites and with the addition of pink it is even prettier!

I started by stamping the leafy flourishes onto the background in the soft mint color and was originally going to layer a few succulents over the top. But I needed more color and opted to stamp some pretty blooms instead! I chose to do a trio to mimic the mirrors in the inspiration picture and kept them all in the challenge colors.

Once the flowers were die cut, I layered them over the leaves and added a couple of shiny and colorful gems. To really make the sentiment stand out, I stamped it in red and added a few more shiny gems around it!

Basket Of Spring!

Hi everyone! Hopefully in your neck of the woods, Spring has sprung! Here in Colorado we have lots of sun but we are still getting snow and Spring always brings us some huge storms. In anticipation of a few gray days, I decided to make some pretty Spring decor.

The 'Welcome Spring' simple set from Simple Stories is full of bright and happy patterns and beautiful blooms in the most gorgeous colors! These patterns look so awesome together that I decided to pile them all together in one lovely basket full of Spring! 

I created geometric shapes in varying sizes of all the paper patterns and then gave each  even more decoration with the charming stickers and sentiments in the collection! I stacked them all in a bright berry basket that is also happily embellished with more of the pretty paper and stickers! 

This sweet little basket is sitting on a shelf in my studio and adds so much cheer and color! You must check out this paper collection with its bright rainbow of colors and perfect Spring sentiments!

Easter Treats!

Hi everyone! I have one more Easter project to squeeze in before the holiday and it's a cute one! After  I made my pretty egg container, I still had lots of the beautiful Simple Stories 'Happy Easter' collection left and couldn't resist making these sweet little treat baskets!

I knew I wanted the baskets to hold the treats upright so I  die cut small circles into a piece of the patterned paper just big enough for the egg or treat to sit in. This patterned paper was adhered to some heavy duty card stock that had been scored into a top and two dies. All of the other pretty papers are adhered to this and the basket is nice and sturdy!

Each of the baskets uses a variety of the pattern papers and they mix so beautifully together! I gave the egg basket a charming scalloped edge along with a sweet egg banner sticker and a cute bunny tag. I added in one tiny flower gem for a bit of shine!

The basket for the chocolate carrots is lovely in the toile printed paper and is accented with sweet stripes and polka dots. I added lots of the flower stickers  to the front along with a cheery yellow bunny and bright sequins. More cuteness was added with the tag made from one of the stickers!

Wishing you all a very happy Easter!

Happy Easter Egg!

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying these first few days of Spring! Easter will soon be here and I'm here to give you a bit of inspiration for an adorable Easter gift or decoration!

Easter is all about the eggs right?! And you might as well make it big or go home! This lovely box is an SVGcuts file and it is super cute and super easy to make. This box is in two pieces- a bottom half and a lid that lifts off. I cut the base of each piece in heavy card stock because I knew it would be holding candy. Then I used the beautiful 'Happy Easter' paper collection from Simple Stories to really jazz it up!

The colors and patterns in this collection are soft and beautiful and such an interesting mix of gorgeous patterns- perfect for this wonderful holiday! I opted to use three of the patterns-a lovely toile, a soft leaf print and a happy stripe! They all go together gorgeously!

Once I had the egg put together and covered with the pretty patterns, I made a tag layering a couple of the stickers included in the collection with more of the patterned paper.   This was added to the top of the egg along with a pretty flower sticker and cascading paper curls. Cabbage ribbon was put around the edge of the top piece, tied in a lovely bow and topped off with a couple more of the charming stickers!

This egg stands about 7 inches tall and can hold a lot of Easter sweets or even a small gift. This would look wonderful as an Easter centerpiece or it would definitely make someone smile  on Easter morning!

Lift My Spirits!

Hi everyone! Spring is here and so are lighter and brighter color combinations! This one for the new Color Throwdown #485 is one of my favorites too! I took it as more of a pink instead of peach because I think pink and black look so awesome together!

These lovely hot air balloons are colored with pink toned Copic markers with a few black highlights. I also added in glitter to some areas for pretty shine!The clouds are die cut and have just a blush of pink around the edges.

All of the pieces are stacked at different heights using a combination of card stock and foam adhesive. This gives me a bit of room to tuck in some shiny sequins and gives the card great dimension! The sweet sentiment is stamped in black.
