Just seeing how to post!


Are you an extreme couponer?

Ok, I’m not a couponer, but those that do find amazing deals!! I am playing along with the Paper Smooches Sparks designer drafts challenge with this sketch:

I used one of the newest Paper Smooches stamp release called Market Fresh. This set has the cutest grocery images, and I love how my little coupon turned out!! And how about that sentiment?! Too fun! I also used one of the newest Paper Smooches dies called Borders 1 dies. It goes perfectly with the love sentiment!! So many ideas for this stamp set I have, but so little time! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Happiness Tag

Hello, just a quick post to share a tag I made today. I think I will use this on one of my husband’s scrapbook pages since it has a manly feel to it. I got my color inspiration from The Play Date Cafe to use Cappuccino, Slate, and Burlap.

I am also linking this up to the Unity Friend’s With Flair Day, I used two Unity stamp sets on this, You’re The Ticket, and So This is Love. Thanks so much for stopping by!

You Are Awesome!

I always say ‘awesome’! So this sentiment from the Lawn Fawn set So Much To Say, is just the perfect greeting for my cards and tags! I paired it up with the flowers in the Lawn Fawn set Mother’s Day, and stamped the flowers in different colors to match my patterned paper. I am playing along with the Lawnscaping Challenge, to use embossing on your project.

I accented my card with a strip of cardstock embossed with a Stampin’ Up! hexagon embossing folder, love it! All other supplies are from Stampin’ Up! as well. Thanks for dropping in, and have a great weekend!

Rock and Roll Butterfly

When I was hopping along the Paper Smooches blog last week, I saw the cutest interactive card I have ever seen by Laura Bassen!! It seemed easy enough to do, so I went for it!! I was inspired by this week’s Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge to use butterflies.

I don’t have any PS butterfly stamps, so I used two hearts from the Needle Little Love stamp set to make mine. I stamped them onto some Jillibean Soup papers, and cut them out. To add a body, I attached some rhinestones. For the sentiment I used two sentiments from the PS Happy Camper stamp set. Here is a quick video of how Laura put her’s together.
And here is my card in action:
Isn’t this just the funnest?!! Thanks so much for stopping by and having a look!!

Emboss Resist with Mama Elephant Stamps

I haven’t done the emboss resist technique for awhile now, and thought these flower stamps from Mama Elephant would look so pretty done that way! They are from the Lovely Mums stamp set. I embossed the flower with clear powder, then used Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, and Festive Berries Distress ink to cover my embossed panel. The thin strip of paper was stamped with the same inks, and the sentiment is from the same set. I used some of my much neglected buttons, and I got my layout from the Mama Elephant Sketch Challenge:

Thank you for looking!!
