Fun and Festive Thank You - Winnie and Walter

Some cards look like a party and this is one of them! Attended a LOFT RETREAT with Jenn Shurkus and we created this design using Winnie and Walter's, The Big, The Bold, The Party stamp set. I purchased Winnie and Walter's, "Big, Bold, You," set and created this fun and festive card keeping Jenn's design in mind.  


I used a stencil to create the multicolored dot background and the simply wonderful "thanks" die cut from Simon Says Stamp for my accent sentiment piece.  I actually die cut my thanks word 4 times, gluing and stacking it on top of each other to create the thickness I wanted to pop it above my sentiment. Cut off the "S" on the "thanks" die cut and placed it above my sentiment which was stamped in Versafine, Onyx Black.  Used a sparkly glitter over dots to give it the party glitz! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Big Bold You - WinnieandWalter

Love the BIG and BOLD sentiments in this set by Winnie and Walter! A fun technique from Jenn Shurkus  that we used at the LoftART Retreat this past weekend. Hard to believe that in just eleven hours and 3 planes you can be from one coast to the other and 48 hours later, fly back again! Whew! It was an amazing time with many incredible women in one place!  Tonight my husband needed a thank you card and I put our distress watercolor background to work.


Every Saturday morning from September to the end of April my husband joins a group of men for BSF (Bible Study Fellowship). It's dedication and commitment and has been a blessing to our entire family. So a little "thanks" to those who lead.

It's that time of year where we are thanking teachers, friends, and others that bring a special joy to our lives and make life easier.  This is a great set with so many words that it makes it easy to custom many greetings of thanks, and congratulations.   It's available here: from Simon Says Stamp.

Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean and Broken China make up the combination for my background. Spritzed water and smushed my Tim Holtz watercolor paper around to get the effect I was happy with. Added some sequins and a little Stickles for the finish. Attached it to a 110 lb white card stock.

Super easy and fun technique that has a new look every time!

Unforgettable - WPLUS9 DESIGN STUDIO, LLC

Front and center with this adorable elephant from WPLUS9 DESIGN STUDIO.  Animals are just the thing this week at the Simon Says Stamp blog for the MONDAY Challenge, here:

The sentiment must have been "made" for me as I am always late for birthday's. Thankfully, everyone in our family is pretty forgiving about not receiving a gift or card on their exact birthday! Whew!

I used one of three elephants in this WPLUS9 set, available here through SimonSaysStamp.


Using Copic markers #W0, W1, W3, R11, R20 I colored my elephant. Distress inks for my background. The bright colors of Lawn Fawn's Beachside for the balloon and clear embossing powder for my sentiment made this a fairly clean and simple design, but what I really, really LOVE is the Little B tape in a black and white stripe on the bottom that is a super tiny width of 3mm size.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Thank you too, for your sweet comments that make me smile!  

Go grab an animal stamp and make a fun card the the SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge!

Furry Friends by AveryElle GIVEAWAY!

Besides loving to create cards and play the flute, I love Silky Terriers! They are just the perfect combination of feisty and fun, silly and lovable and think they are a big dog even though they are in a small body. And, they have hair, like people hair, so they don't shed seasonally. We love showing them in dog shows and breeding them very occasionally.  So when I saw this set by AveryElle that had a more shaggy look to the pup image, I was smitten.

Here's my card:




and then I couldn't resist making this card for the AveryElle "AEIheartU" March Challenge (stripes)



This kitty looks like she is one to be obeyed!

Have an OTTERLY great birthday, Lawn Fawn!

Celebrating with LAWN FAWN and wishing them many more fun years of creating great products for crafters!  Their designs are just adorable, playful and very fun to work in to crafty designs.

Jenn Shurkus invited me to play along with the BLOG HOP celebrating Lawn Fawn's 5th Anniversary.

Each year Lawn Fawn celebrates their anniversary by releasing an Anniversary set.  My card features the Year Five set (LF807).


A bit late for the PARTY! My otter forgot his present! Thankfully, he got his act together!






Alaska has lots of cute little otters swimming in our ocean waters so I was excited to add him to my growing Lawn Fawn collection!

Gorgeous papers in the new "Beachside" pint sized pattern 6x6 pad from Lawn Fawn.  Die cut hearts are from Lawn Fawn's Heart Dies #492.

Wishing Lawn Fawn an OTTERLY AWESOME 5th birthday (Anniversary!)

Thanks for your comments, they always make me smile!

You ROCK!

More fun with Essentials by Ellen dies making this simple die cut and dry embossed card with the new Folk Hearts dies and the You Rock dies designed by Julie Ebersole. There is so much fun to be had with that big beautiful "rock" cut gem in the You Rock set.

Cosmo Glitter paper, a bit of Wink of Stella & Glossy Accent adds the sparkle to this simple card that took just minutes!



The dry embossed background is very subtle in the background but used the magnetic mask material from Ellen Hutson to create the pieces for the dry embossing that I ran through my Big Shot.  Jennifer McGuire used that technique with the Bold Blossoms set from this great release of stamps and dies. Love the graphic look of black and red!  




You Bring out the BEST in Me!

Slipping in at the end for a little Spring time blog hop for Coffee Lovers here:


If there is one thing I look forward to in the morning it is a hot cup of JAVA.  You can talk to me before I have my cup but, don't expect great things until I've had at least a couple of sips!  It has a way of breathing life into me! Speaking of breathing "new life," I've had this Stampendous "Beaucoup de Cafe'" stamp, forever.  Love those coffee cups on this border image and teamed up with one of the sweet MFT images from the "You Have My Heart" set, it's a new look!



I stamped my image out on Strathmore Watercolor paper with Archival Jet Black ink and colored my images with Derwent  INKtencil pencils.  They are fast, fun and easy to use without much mess. I used a Winsor & Newton University Series 233 brush. Wink of Stella blinged up the beans and sugar cubes.   Focusing on Spring colors was just what I needed on this rather cloudy day, that and a warm cup of coffee!  

Now it's YOUR turn! Quick as the hop ends tonight! All you have to do is link up your new project featuring coffee, tea or cocoa, for a chance to win one of the Super Sponsor Prizes!
