I Scream For Ice Cream!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog. This is such a cute House Mouse stamp with the bunnies eating ice cream. I see that one has already had his fill! Ice cream is my all time favorite dessert! I eat it even during the cold winter. Strawberry season is just about here in my area so wouldn't strawberry homemade ice cream be a wonderful treat?


I used two different patterned papers for my background and added ribbons and a punched butterfly. The image was colored using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I cut the image out using the Spellbinders Labels 4 die. I also added parts of Heartfelt Creations Raindrops On Roses die at the corners of the image.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

A Rose is a Rose ........

Hello! Welcome to my blog. I want to show you a card featuring this beautiful rose stamp by Just For Fun Stamps. My dad had a beautiful rose garden for many years. He really babied them and we had such gorgeous roses from his labor. However, I am not one that is good with plants, so I am glad there are now Knock Out roses that I don't have to care for as much! LOL!


The background on this card is rose patterned paper that I layered onto a dotted patterned paper. I also used the dotted paper to punch the border. I stamped and fussy cut the Notebook Scrap and then I stamped the Long Script stamp on it. The rose was colored with colored pencils and Gamsol and also fussy cut. Everything was put together on a white card base and then the edges were sponged with brown Distress ink.

We would love for you to join in this month's challenge. The theme for this challenge is flowers. We would love to see what you make!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Shabby Chic #7

Hi and welcome to my blog. I am back with another shabby chic card today. I went into my button bin and used several on this card. The rose is also a button! The embossed background was already in my stash and white perfect pearls was brushed over it after applying versa mark ink. I used the same ribbon on the hat as I did to make the bow. Lacy stickers were adhered on the back of the first layer. The girl stamp is from Inkadinkado and the definition stamp is from Sparkle N Sprinkle. The Paris stamp is unknown.

He Has Risen!

Hi Everyone! Happy Easter! Well, this is also April Fool's Day and my birthday all rolled into one! I want to show you an Easter card I made using Just For Fun stamps. Just For Fun also has a new challenge for this month with the theme - flowers. We hope that you will join us this month to have a chance to win a gift certificate to the store. Just For Fun has many lovely flower stamps to choose from. You can see them all here.




On my card I used the Just For Fun Easter Cross stamp. I stamped the image and cut out more of the flowers to add on top and the side of the cross. They were colored using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. Everything was fussy cut and adhered to the Spellbinders Vintage Flourish Pattern die. Gold Liquid Pearls was used for the center of the flowers. I used lavender ribbon to wrap around the cross. I stamped the saying and cut it out with decorative scissors.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a blessed Easter!

Shabby Chic #6

Hi and welcome to my blog! The Easter season is upon us! I want to show you a shabby chic Easter card I made with a beautiful stamp from Paper Inspirations. I bought this stamp a few years ago from a store that sold all kinds of things. She had a small display with wooden stamps. When I saw this stamp I just had to have it! The frame around the stamp is Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangle. I added the die at the top from Yvonne Creations called Flower Swing. The butterfly is by Cheery Lynn Designs. I found some small felt doilies in my stash, cut one in half and added them behind the first layer.



Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a blessed Easter!

Sweet Easter Bunnies

Hi Everyone! Easter is right around the corner. I want to show you an Easter card I made using these sweet Love U Bunnies by Just For Fun Stamps. Aren't they the cutest?


I used several dies on this card. The pink background die is called Vintage Flourish by Spellbinders. I used the Filagree Egg die from Memory Box and cut from various patterned papers to look like dyed Easter eggs. The bunnies were stamped and colored using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The saying is from the Sentiments 1 unmounted sheet.

I would love for you join the Just For Fun challenge. The theme is to use dies. You will be eligible to win a gift certificate to the store!


Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a Happy Easter!

Shabby Chic #5

Hi! I hope you are having a good day. It feels like Winter here today. I am looking forward to warmer Spring weather this weekend, so I made a Spring card in anticipation of it! I am back with another shabby chic card and once again I used a shaped card created by an svg cut. When looking through my stash I also found some tags from K&CO. that were the exact shape as my card, so I used the tag for the center of the card. I framed the saying from Sparkle N Sprinkle with a small die cut from my stash. The butterflies ( Sparkle N Sprinkle) were stamped on acetate, colored with alcohol inks, fussy cut and heated with a heat tool to bend the wings. The topper die is from the Spellbinders Butterfly die set. I stamped a Hero Arts script stamp, using light blue ink, across the base of the card and sponged the card with Distress ink.



Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
