Sometimes Life Stinks……


Today’s Crazy challenge is to use paper piecing on our card or project!  I decided to use the DARLING brand new Sent-sational stamp set by Bugaboo and sold HERE at Totally Stampalicious!  If you missed the 4 new sets that were released last week, you really need to check them out and to make it easy for you, HERE is the direct link to the new sets!!!

The base of my card is Dark Chocolate with a mat of some old light brown CS I had and then the darling image that was stamped on Select White CS using Black Memento ink.  I paper pieced the little pig body and colored the rest using my Copics.  I added some ribbon and rounded the corners using my Creative Memories corner rounder and that was it!  Super simple card!

Here are the links to the Crazy girls blogs where you will find their amazing paper pieced creations!

Have a great weekend!

Hey there Chickadee…….


Today’s Crazy challenge is to use buttons on our cards or projects.  Here is my card!

I love this set from PTI and haven’t used it for a long time so I thought with today’s button challenge, it would be perfect!  The card base is Vintage Cream with a mat of DP from Cosmo Cricket’s Odd’s and End’s Collection.  I stamped the darling bird on Kraft CS using Early Espresso ink, embossed the bottom using my Swiss Dots embossing folder, added the SU! lace and some twine.  I glued a googlie eye on the green button and added some twine to that as well.  I stamped the sentiment and matted with Early Espresso CS and was done!

Here are the links to Crazy girls blogs!!  Stop by and leave them some love!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Flowers for a Friend……


Today’s Crazy challenge is to make a card or project using the colors Blue and White and one other color.  My other color is yellow!  I had such high hopes for this card and then when I was trying to figure out which buttons to put in the centers of the flowers, I hadn’t realized I had cut my finger and I got blood all over my card!  The good part is that I was able to remove the blood in Photoshop but the bad news is, I don’t have a thank you card to add to my stash!! LOL!!

Anyway, here is my card!

First I bled all over it then I couldn’t get a good picture…..I give up!!!  The base is Night of Navy with a mat of Select White.  The ribbon is SU! Night of Navy.  I stamped the two flowers from Verve’s Sunny Days set using Night of Navy ink on a yellow pattern of paper from Basic Grey’s Picadilly’s Collection.  I cut them out, stamped the stems from Verve‘s Thankful Blossoms set using Wild Wasabi ink and then added some Wild Wasabi leaves.  The sentiment is from Verve’s Amazing Wishes set and was stamped using Night of Navy ink.  I cut this out using my SU! die, cut the edge off and then cut another label using the die and the same yellow patterned paper from the Picadilly collection.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Verve Diva’s Inspirations Team Blog Hop!!!

Good Morning!

It’s the 5th of the month and that means another Verve Inspirations Team Blog Hop!  In case you didn’t know, Mark and Julee {Mr. and Mrs. Verve} had their twin boys last month!  Stop by Julee’s blog to see what she has been up to!!!

Here is my card for today’s hop ~

The base of my card is Black CS and my DP is MME from their old Meadowlark Collection.  The stamp set I used is Verve’s Wings of Love.  I LOVE this set!  It came out around Valentine’s Day but to me, it is a set that can be used for many other occasions!  My card is a graduation card!  I stamped the heart with wings as well as the 3 separate sentiments directly on the Meadowlark paper using Black Memento ink.  I stamped the heart & wing stamp one more time on another MME pattern from the same collection.  I then added some ribbon and a couple stick pins and was done!

Next on our hop today is sweet Sony!!!!

Have a wonderful day!

Thank Ewe……


In case you didn’t know, last Thursday night, Totally Stampalicous released 4 new stamp sets.  Today I am sharing a card I made using the NEW Moo-velous!  You will notice that my little image is a lamb, not a cow!!  The darling lamb is included in the set too along with the sentiment, Thank Ewe, which I stamped on the inside.

Before I go on to my card, I am posting tons of stuff for sale.  See the tab at the top of my banner or you can go HERE.  I have SU! Craft ink pads, Creative Memories, Waltzing Mouse, PTI, SU! and more!  I am still loading stuff so if you don’t see it, it will be there shortly!

I just realized that I missed a piece by her foot when cutting….oh well, too late now!!!  Just so you know, that is NOT part of the image!!! LOL!  The base of my card is Kraft with a mat of Select White and then on top, a scrap from Basic Grey and on the bottom, a scrap from MME.  The clouds were cut using my PTI cloud dies and some white glitter felt and the tree is from my MFT die.  The tree trunk was cut from some MME paper and the leaves are from Old Olive.  The fence is from my PTI die in which I used Kraft paper and accented the “nails” using my silver painty pen.  The bottom MME DP was punched using my Martha Stewart grass punch.  The final addition to make the card complete was darling lamb that I stamped on Select White using Black Memento ink, cut “most” of her out and then colored her feet and cheeks using my Copics.  I popped her up on dimensionals and was done!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Thank HOOOOO!!!!

Today’s Crazy challenge comes to us from non other than our dear Frances….AKA:  Stamp Owl!!!  Frances has challenged us to use owl{s} on our card or project!!  What a fun challenge!

The sad part about this is that I knew I had SU!’s owl stamp and THOUGHT that I had the matching punch but couldn’t remember…..well, I have the punch and it has never been used.  How sad is that?????  The stamp hadn’t been used either!  I am truly a slacker!

The base is Dark Chocolate with a mat of Blushing Bride and then of course Kraft.  I punched the clouds using my PTI dies and added some scraps of pink flower paper from one of my MME paper packs.  I stamped the owl on Select White CS using Early Espresso ink and punched it out!!  Thank goodness I had the punch because I don’t think I could have cut it!!! LOL!!!  I colored using my Prismacolor Pencils and added some googlie eyes.  The branches are from SU!’s bird punch.  The sentiment is from Verve‘s Amazing Wishes set.

Don’t forget to check out the Crazies owl creations and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

For my card today, I used the darling Margaret Umbrella!

The base of this card is Select White with some old MME DP.  I stamped Margaret on Select White CS, again on the cloud paper and one more time, just the umbrella on acetate.  I wanted her umbrella to look like the old clear ones like I used to have!!! LOL!!!  Maybe those are back in style now, I don’t know because unless I see it on Pinterest, I don’t know what is in style!!! hahahaha  I cut the umbrella out, added some stickles to the polka dots and adhered it on top of the first stamped image.  I colored Margaret using my Copics, cut her out and mounted her on top of the Going Gray sidewalk!!
