Happy Birthday Beary Hugs

I wanted to share a card today using stamps from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and Jaded Blossom. I am always in need of birthday cards and this one was cute and quick to put together.

I got myself a little Christmas present and put it to work on this card. Super amazing!!! I got the Misti Stamp Tool. I may be a little behind the times as I've never heard of this before but boy do I love it!! I purchased mine from Amazon.




Copics Used
Bear - E35, E34, E31
Jacket - BG02, BG05
Scarf - YG09
I didn't focus too much on the shading of the bear as I just wanted to randomly color and not think too much about it.

The original idea for this card came from Jennifer McGuire. I have been addicted to her videos lately. I didn't make the card exactly like hers but the concept is still there :0) 

For the image I used Beary Big Hugs from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and for the Happy Birthday Sentiment I used So Many Birthdays 2 from Jaded Blossom. I stamped the black sentiment first and worked my way around the black stamped sentiment. The image I stamped on Xpress It cardstock, colored it up with copic markers and cut it out with the Brother Scan N' Cut. I added some pop dots to the back of my bear for some dimension. The card itself measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

Hope you enjoyed today's creation!

Shaker Card with Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!

Here is my attempt at my very first shaker card. Lots of fun and I ordered more sequins to make more! 



I was missing some supplies but made due with what I had until they arrive. I used the video from Jennifer McGuire - I love watching her videos! I just did a quick color of the image because not everything has to be super detailed and blended perfectly. Sometimes... it's just fun to color!  My bear is actually adhered down in the middle because I didn't want him flipping upside down. I just wanted the sequins to move.

I also did some random blending of winter-ish colors for the background which I did on a separate piece of X-press It cardstock and attached to my frame.

Supplies
Image/Sentiment- Beary Big Hugs - Kraftin Kimmie Stamps
Square - Stitched Squares - C.C.Designs
Copics
Bear - E35, E33, E31, E21
Scarf - B14, B24
Cup - G24
Background - BG57, BG53, BG34, V22, BV02
Foam Tape
Sequins

Think Happy Thoughts Card

I hope everyone a wonderful Christmas! On Christmas Eve, we visited my family, played in the snow and then hunkered down and watched movies with the kids on Christmas Day! It was fantastic! I absolutely loved watching the kids open their presents and play with everything throughout the day.

While they were occupied, mommy snuck away to play too!

Here is a card I'm sharing using stamps and dies from C.C. Designs and Jaded Blossom.


I am loving the simplicity of this card! I added some dimension by attaching some pop dots to my cut out image. I also layered my card and attached a rectangle foam piece behind my first layer.

Thank You Script Card

Tonight's the night! My kids are so excited for tonight! As tradition, we open one present on Christmas Eve and the rest tomorrow morning. I love watching their reactions! 

Now that I'll  be moving past Christmas cards, I thought about what I could have on hand. Thank you cards! I always need a nice thank you card. I'll admit -- I saw something similar to this on pinterest but instead I used a file from SVG Cutting Files.


I just thought this was nice, clean and simple yet super cute ! 

I used the Scripty Words file from SVG Cutting Files.

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and hope you don't get coal in your stocking tomorrow !

Kit and Clowder November Class

I've been taking online classes through Kit and Clowder. Alyce is an absolutely amazing instructor! She has such detailed videos, files and step by step directions. This is the November class that I finally finished. I restarted it about 4 times and finally on the 4th one I was determined to just push through and get it done. I'm honestly still not happy with my final result haha. I know where all my errors are and it really bothers me. I also discovered numerous markers that need to be refilled so that was hanging me up as well.... 
Onto the picture! 


I think one of my biggest issues to work through is I'm not used to blending such large spaces.... and I'm really particular lol ... 

But ... like I tell my daughter - practice makes perfect. We learn from our mistakes. Our finished product will never look like the original because the person that taught this class has waaaaay more experience than I do obviously. So.... I pushed through .. finished it and now onto my next class! 

You can check out Kit and Clowder HERE if you would like to learn more about coloring with markers or pencils.

Thanks!

Matchbook Treats

Hello and welcome to my blog! If you are just happening to my page or just this particular post, please be sure to go to the Home button on the top and see everything I've created. I've been super super busy making cards, tags, and treats and I provide all the links on where to purchase the items so you can too! Or save it for next year! 

I finally finished up the school treats. I have two kids in school so that came to about 50 treats. I needed something  fun, quick and yummy! I will admit - I had my daughter help out with cutting the candycanes....



That... is a lot of candycanes haha...... 

These are matchbook treats. I don't have exact measurements as I just went off of the candy that I was going to use inside which is mini bags of M&M's.  I tucked a piece of the M&M bag down at the bottom - folded over my cardstock and stapled it shut.

Sentiment - Jaded Blossom - Christmas Signs

Mice Holiday Wishes Card

Happy Wednesday! Half way through the week. Today I'm sharing a card using supplies from Jaded Blossom and my new (early) Christmas present, the Scan N Cut. I wanted this machine for one reason .... to cut around my stamped images haha... and it cuts beautifully! This mouse was cut out with the Scan N Cut. For the hat and scarf, I stamped them on patterned paper and then cut them out and paper pieced them to the mouse image. 
How adorable is this mouse?!?! I really love how I colored it up too but unfortunately, I cannot find my slip of the colors I used. I think I need to find a better system as I seem to lose my slips alot haha. 

Mouse and Sentiment - Jaded Blossom - Mouse Bites Stamp Set

The background is just patterned paper the worked perfectly with this cutie! 

Hope you enjoyed today's card and be sure to stop back for more inspiration this week!

Meowy Card

I fell in love with this stamp set the second I saw it! I tend to overthink cards when really, simple is just as cute. The same goes for coloring. I just started by adding a few dark lines and layered from there - just enough to give this kitty some depth.

Hand Santa-tizer Gifts

Here are some more gifts I put together. I used supplies from Jaded Blossom and SVG Cutting Files. 

I had purchased a bunch of small hand sanitizer bottles back in August while school shopping. At the time, Ghostbusters was popular and so Slimer was on the label. I decided to wrap the bottle in patterned paper to cover up Slimer haha...

Sock Snowmen are Back!!

It's always such a busy time of year for me. I love to make gifts for the teachers and I know my daughter loves when I do this too. It's my way of showing them I appreciate everything they do for my kids.






I started doing these a few years ago when a friend posted her adorable snowmen! She also has the best tutorial for them which you can find HERE. Thank you Ms. Kimm!! She adds a few more embellishments than I do but when I have to make 10+ .... I like to stay simple lol .. 
For the eyes on my snowmen, I had some brads that looked like buttons which I was able to just stick in. Although I do like to add a dab of hot glue to them to make sure they stay put. I also add a dab of hot glue to the hats to keep them in place.

This year I added a tag to my little snowmen. For my tag I used supplies from Jaded Blossom

Thanks for stopping by !

Jaded Blossom December Guest Designer!

I'm so excited to be a part of this unique opportunity from Jaded Blossom! I have absolutely fallen in love with their stamps and dies! You can visit their website HERE to check them out! 

For my project  today I'm sharing a decor item. I needed a little something festive for my wall and this was the perfect time to do it! I used a box frame from Michael's so the finished piece is "set back" in the frame. The letters for JOY I created in my Silhouette Designer Studio using Doodlebug paper. All the die pieces (tree, snowflake and bell) I cut out in glitter paper.
