Flowers for You!

Recently, Laurie Willison posted some photos of these mason jars from The Greetery; I have the same set and told her I had not inked it up yet; she told me I needed to get to it. :D So get to it, I did!

I stamped a total of 8 jars, 2 of each color. There 'might' have been a little ink transfer on one, but hey - we're just rolling with it, because if at all possible, we DO NOT start over.

I stamped a bunch of flowers and greenery, hopefully enough for 4 tags and 4 cards. I cut 4 blank mason jars and adhered to the back of the tags sandwiching the flowers/greenery in between. The overall inspiration for the tags came from Dawn McVey. And I took lots of liberties in my colors; I wanted lots of variety and colors!

I tied on the circle tags with some super soft yarn from Hobby Lobby. The circle tags can also include a note on the back. I wish I would have added some flowers to the circle tag like Dawn did; but I thought these were still cute.

TFL; hope you have a great week. Stay safe & healthy!!



Colour Crazy Challenge - Polkadoodles

I am BEYOND thrilled to be joining the Colour Crazy Challenge; this is a gorup of super fun (and talented) individuals with LOTS of inspiration! Hope you will check out our challenges!

Our weekly challenge is always "Anything Goes" as long as you include some coloring on your project; hope you'll play along!

This week we are featuring digital images from Polkadoodles; I used the Winnie Celebrations Big Bunch; isn't this little girl the sweetest? I colored the image with Copics and colored pencils and kept the card very Clean and Simple (CAS). I die cut the image and mounted with fun foam, added some Pretty Pink Posh marshmallow confetti mix sequins and this beautiful sentiment from the Gina K / Hero Arts Friendship Blooms stamp set. If you look closely, you can see a sponged a design around the outer edge using TE Strawberry Milkshake ink and Ripples stencil.

Thanks for popping in; hope you'll check out all the other creations at the Colour Crazy Challenge, then join the fun! See you again soon!!

Hop To It

I have lots of Easter / bunny themed cards to share; this first one takes lots of inspiration from Taylor of Taylored Expressions. I had a lot of fun creating all the cards while Facetiming with our youngest daughter.

This card is very simple using MFT's Circle Burst stencil and TE's sea salt ink for the background pattern and then the cute little Hop to It bunnies cut from the background stamp which includes a stamp for various ears and their cheeks. So cute!

I decided to make the inside a little extra special by cutting out 3 more bunnies and adhering them behind the pink panel. Simple yet fun!

Thanks for stopping by; stay safe and healthy my friends!



MIUCB #35 - Anything Goes + Smooshing

Hi friends - welcome back for the monthly Mix It Up Challenge where this month focuses on Anything Goes + Smooshing. Hands down, smooshing is my favorite technique - is it really a technique? Doesn't matter, I love, love, love it!

I actually have two cards to share with you; both very similar, ink smooshing, embossing and these gorgeous Sketchbook Roses from The Greetery.

I used Worn Lipstick and Barn Door for my smooshed colors; the focal sentiments are all from Taylored Expressions, cut with their Mini Strips Die. On the top card, I added Taylored Expressions Bits and Pieces Full of Heart sequins, the bottom card as Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow Confetti Mix.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great day!
