Right at Home’s Anemone set

I’m over on the Right at Home blog today, sharing a few more cards I created with the latest Right at Home release! You can also check out the whole release HERE!
All of these cards are made with the super easy to use Anemone set! It’s a lovely set that can be used in quite a variety of ways. I’ll share the cards here, but please head over to the RAH Blog to read more! πŸ™‚
This first card, is one of my favorites!
I used a scalloped circle to mask off the stamping area. Which is why the edge is “blurred”. You can easily make it a crisper edge with a solid circle. πŸ™‚
 And here is a PURPLE card! πŸ˜‰ Rare!
So easy to layer exactly OR slightly offset! πŸ™‚
And here is a whole set, one of which I shared a couple weeks back!
You can make this simpler and crank them out much faster in a pinch.
I’m digging the blue one! I didn’t think I’d like it, but it looks good!
I used a white Prismacolor pencil to color in the sentiments. I go back and forth on if I like it or not? I wish I had thought ahead and left the sentiment stamp to be stamped precisely on top again. But, I make decisions as I go vs. planning ahead on cards. Ha! πŸ™‚

Also, I used sentiments from RAH’s previously released set, Make Something Beautiful for a few of these cards! ❀ that set!

I hope you have a chance to check out all of the new Right at Home release! Thank you again to Nicole! I’ve loved inking up all these Right at Home stamps and I’m looking forward to more! πŸ™‚

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

12th Birthday!

Hola! I’m sharing this card I made for my niece, who is turning 12!!!??? How!!?? I swear she was just turning 3 yesterday. Yup, I’m that adult that cannot digest that children just keep on growing! Haaa! πŸ™‚  ❀

I thought this bear would be fantastic to hold some fun balloons! AND a cupcake, while sporting a party hat! Busy little dude! πŸ™‚

I colored the cutie bear and his accessories with Copic markers, added some Stickles and Wink of Stella sparkle. I tied silver thread to each balloon (which, while time consuming, is a fun detail) and finished it off with a little washi tape and stitching. In the end, it’s a little bit busier of a card than I generally make, but it is a PARTY! πŸ™‚

For this, I used Essentials by Ellen All Inside ( and dies), EH’s Silver Linings, and Avery Elle’s Numbered Balloons and Party Animal  stamp/die.

I’m adding this for the Mix-It Up Challenge with Avery Elle over at Ellen Hutson! Perfect! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! Biggest birthday wishes to E on Monday! Shhhhhh! πŸ™‚ ❀

You’re Rad-ish!

Hooray for the weekend! I was trying to do nothing last night, but apparently I cannot do that because I ended up making this card. πŸ™‚Β 

Let me just say: I used more purple on this card than I’ve used all year? Haaaaaa!

For this, I used Essentials by Ellen stamps set,Β  Wonky Backdrops and Avery Elle’s Punny Pantry stamps. I completely enjoy this Avery Elle set because PUNS! πŸ™‚Β  I was fortunate (and super excited!) to be gifted this at a crafty retreat. Thank you, Avery Elle! ❀

I colored this radish with Copic markers and fussy cut it out. I stamped the Wonky Backdrop with a Hero Arts ombre ink pad. Love how that turned out! πŸ™‚ I stitched on some patterned paper and cardstock strips before I added the lot with foam adhesive. Such a fun card!

I’m adding this for the Mix-It Up Challenge with Avery Elle over at Ellen Hutson right now. Plenty of time to join in, so hoping to make another one day. Wishful thinking anyway ;)! Check it out and join in! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!

We’re Rooting for You

Hooray for summer! (But it’s going TOO fast!)

Today I am sharing a card I made for my son. I’m trying to *slowly but surely* build up my lunchbox/backpack stash for the school year. I am also a fan of the post-it and a sharpie, so don’t think I send these daily or anything. Haaaaa! πŸ™‚

My red layering detail kept getting absorbed into the Lawn Fawn Lobster ( ❀ ), so you can barely make out those little lines there. Googley eyes to polish them off, of course! πŸ™‚

For this card, I used Lawn Fawn’s Rooting for You stamp set. πŸ˜‰ Always such fun to use these cutie veggies and their puntastic sentiments! This patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn, as well as the Lobster and Carrot color inks.

Here are a couple other cards I made with these little guys…. HERE and HERE. ❀ These crack me up!

I am playing along with the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge color combo inspiration board! It’s pretty summertastic, if you ask me! πŸ™‚ There is still time to enter too!! Join in!

Hooray for summer!

Have a great rest of the week!! πŸ˜‰

Right at Home’s New Release!

Happy Tuesday, all! I’m super excited to be over at the Right at Home blog today, celebrating their NEW release available now! Everything new can be found HERE! πŸ˜‰ It’s full ofΒ  flowery goodness! πŸ™‚

(Be sure to head over to the RAH Blog to read more about both these cards! <3)
I used the lovely new Anemone set for both these cards.
Lovely flowers, right? Eeeep! πŸ™‚Β  (I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi Pearl paints)
Next up, is a card I made using the layering parts of the Anemone set. I made several more of these cards, and I will be sure to share them in a couple of weeks! Yay!
These look fantastic with the dye and pigment ink mix on kraft!

For both of these cards, I used sentiments from RAH’s previously released set, Make Something Beautiful. You can check out another card I made a little while back HERE.

I hope you have a chance to check out all of the new Right at Home release! Thank you so very much to Nicole, for having me along to celebrate the fun! I really enjoyed working with this new set!

Have a great Tuesday!

You are Crafty and Kind

Popping in today with this card I made for the Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge fun! When I saw this color combo inspiration, I was sold! I do love color!

The pinned inspiration photo for this month makes me so happy! ❀ ! I die cut the rays from all the different colored cardstocks, trimmed apart,Β  and inlaid them on this panel. I clear embossed the sentiment and stitched it on. My sewing machine had some issues recently, and I ended up using the wrong stitch (wanted a straight stitch). But once that needle went through, I was committed! Not tragic, but a bit busier than I’d have liked. πŸ˜‰

For this card, I used the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Silver Linings by Julie Ebersole. I also used the recently released, Crafty Ladies Say by Brandi Kincaid. Awesome!! πŸ™‚

So glad I am squeaking this card in for the challenge! Whoooooohooo! Love these challenges at EH!


ETA 8-01-17: Last night, I sat down at my desk and all these bits were still there. Hence, I made four more cards! Love when you get a 5 for 1! πŸ™‚

For these sentiments I used the same Crafty Ladies Say…and also: Warm Fuzzies, Mermaid’s Tail, and All Inside. Goodness, I ❀ the way these colorful rays look! πŸ™‚ And I also was sure to check my stitch setting before starting this time. Double yay! πŸ™‚


Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great week!

I’m squeaking in my entry to this month’s Little Tangles challenge….phew! πŸ™‚ I’m so glad I made it!

Eeeeee they are CUTE!Little Tangles Challenge: Masking! Masking is such fun when you take off the mask and it’s like magic! πŸ™‚

I stamped and masked off the embroidery hoop from Neat and Tangled’s Hand Stitched set (that I won! Hooray!) and stamped these cuties from My Favorite Nut. I then colored them with Copic Markers and added a heart from the My Favorite Nut dies. I thought it was a sweet little card to pop in the mail! πŸ™‚

Have a great rest of the week!! πŸ™‚
