hello Sunshine

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! Hope you had a good weekend – it sure seemed to go by fast. It’s time for another fun challenge over at Stinkin’ Inkers and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for the Some Like It Hot challenge! We’d love to see you create a project related to Summer. I created a cute little beach scene which will probably end up in my ‘beach fiend’ friend Cindy’s hands, lol!


I stamped a sun in the sky, then added water with blue crinkle paper – and it looks like real water with ripples! Score! I created sand mounds with torn tan cardstock and then added stamped seashells, a bird and a crab. Super cute Paper Smooches stamp sets!


I stamped the sentiment on the inside panel and then embellished it with a leftover strip of the blue crinkle paper and layered the panel on tan cardstock.


And one more look… SO stinkin’ cute! Love, love, love!

Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you’re having a good week so far! This month’s Anything Goes With Dies Challenge! I’m happy to share another cat card in my ‘awesome’ series! These are right up my alley – hubby and I have eight feline fur babies and we couldn’t love them more!

This CAS design is so playful and fun, and super easy to mass produce to create a set of six or eight to give as a gift. So stay tuned… you’ll be seeing a few more in different colors AND a gift box!


I cut a strip of striped paper and adhered it to the card base, rounded both lower corners and then ran it through the Big Shot with a criss-cross border die. I used my new favorite set of cat dies to cut some kitties from different colors of cardstock and placed them on the front of the card, and then stamped the sentiment.


I decorated the inside with a strip of the striped paper and another kitty die cut, and then stamped the sentiment.


One more look… super happy with this design. Sure do love the kitties!
