Hi friends! Happy Tuesday to you! Since it’s the first day of November, it’s busy here on my blog this morning, lol! Another one of my projects was in the Top 3 at Scrapping4fun Challenges several weeks ago and I was invited to guest for Challenge #218 – Summer/Winter, so here I am! I featured both Summer AND Winter in my DT inspiration project and just love how it turned out! You know I’m a huge fan of box cards, so I used the Surfing Santa Card cut file from Simply Crafty SVGs!
I cut the card base from Cardstock Warehouse Brown Box 100# Kraft cardstock, and the rest of the pieces from CutCardStock Pop Tone Black Licorice, Pop Tone Hot Fudge, Pop Tone Jellybean Green, Pop Tone Sweet Tooth, Pop Tone Wild Cherry, and Sandcastle cardstock, along with Hot Off The Press Seascapes & Sand 6×6 double-sided cardstock and Brutus Monroe blue glitter cardstock. I always say the most fun part is the assembly, and this one was no different! I love watching them come to life!
Here is a shot of the back showing the panel to write a custom message and signature and an angled side shot showing the construction. Box cards are so much fun!

Hey everybody! Hope you had a good weekend and your week is off to a nice start! I tell you what… March 1st sure got here fast, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Another one of my projects was a Featured Creation over at Scrapping4fun Challenges so I’ve once again been invited to guest design, this time for Challenge 210 – Something with Watercolors! I created a watercolored panel for the front of this clean and simple get well card, and I actually attempted my first process video while creating the watercolored panel… and my dang brush kept losing bristles on the wet panel! So the camera got turned off and the brush went into the garbage! Bahahaha! I’ll try again soon, so stay tuned! :D
Hey everybody! A very Happy Tuesday to you! Hope you had a great weekend and did something fun! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Today would have been my parents’ 74th wedding anniversary and my oldest sister was born nine months and four days later, lol! Happy anniversary in Heaven, Mom and Dad! I’m sure you are celebrating! Now on to my card… one of my projects was dubbed a Featured Creation over at Scrapping4fun Challenges a couple months ago and I was invited to guest design in an upcoming challenge, so here I am sharing my GD inspiration project for Challenge 209 – Anything Goes! We have a hardware store here in our little town that sells everything but the kitchen sink (lol), and the owner commissions me to make Mother’s Day cards every year and they sell like hotcakes! I created this card with a precolored image from Jan’s Digi Stamps Lily of the Valley set.
Using the Crafter’s Companion Ruth Create-A-Card die set, I cut the card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a slightly smaller layering panel from Stampin’ Up Crushed Curry cardstock. I printed the image on Neenah Classic Linen 80# Solar White cardstock and cut it with a smaller die in the set, adhered them together and then to the card base. Using the Stampin’ Up And Many More stamp set, I stamped the sentiment horizontally in black ink, and then added a few dots of English Mustard Crystal Drops to finish the card front.
Using the same Crafter’s Companion Ruth Create-A-Card die set, I die cut the inside panels from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and Stampin’ Up Crushed Curry, and adhered them together. I stamped the inside sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Grateful Bunch stamp set in black ink and adhered the piece to the inside of the card base.
And one more look… I just love Jan’s Digi Stamps images, and the precolored ones are gorgeous and make perfect cards!
Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a fabulous week – the weekend is almost here! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to share that I’m guest designing for Scrapping4fun Challenges again! One of my projects was a Featured Creation a few weeks back and I was invited by the lovely Rachelle to be a guest designer for Challenge #188 – Easter/Spring, so here I am! Our sponsor this time is Fabrika Fantasy so come on over and play! I created a fun Easter card featuring Fabrika Fantasy’s Easter Bunny digital image – isn’t he the cutest?! He reminds me of that obnoxious friend in junior high school who wouldn’t take no for an answer, lol! Bahahaha!
I absolutely love this image and have had it in my stash for a couple years. I’ve only used it once before so I thought it only fitting to use it for this Easter challenge, and I paired it with some fun Doodlebug Design patterned papers. I printed the image on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers and cut it with a stitched circle die. I layered it offset slightly to the left onto a stitched oval die cut with a banner sandwiched between, to which I added a tiny heart die cut. I adhered a jelly bean patterned paper panel to the card base and then adhered the focal image. I adhered three Hello die cuts and a heart die cut to the focal image, and then made some fluff on his tail with my Marvy Snow Marker. The finishing touch was the addition of several purple enamel dots.

Hi everyone! I hope your first week of the New Year has been a good one! I’m absolutely thrilled to share that I’m once again guesting for Scrapping4fun Challenges! One of my projects was a Featured Creation last month and I was offered a guest design spot in Challenge #183 – Anything Goes, so here I am! Polkadoodles is our sponsor for this challenge and I have lots of their digital products in my stash, so I dug into the Winnie White Christmas Big Kahuna Download Kit for the image and papers I wanted to use for this front step card which is one of my favorite fun folds!
I created the card base from Papertrey Ink Simply Chartreuse cardstock. I printed three coordinating Polkadoodles digital papers, a round element, two merged pre-colored images and two sentiments on HP 32# copy paper and trimmed them. I layered the focal image on gold foil cardstock and set it aside. I adhered panels cut from the three digital papers to the card base and then adhered the focal image and a layered sentiment to the front along with three 8mm green cut jewels across the bottom.
I embellished the back panel with a leftover strip of the plaid paper and the round element that I punched with a 1-1/4″ circle punch, and layered the panel on the plain green paper.
And one more look… totally loving this fold! It’s easy to adjust the measurements if necessary (I made this one a little taller to accommodate the focal image) and it folds flat for mailing!
Products used: Cardstock/Paper: Papertrey Ink Simply Chartreuse cardstock, Hygloss Gold Foil cardstock, three digital papers from Polkadoodles Winnie White Christmas Big Kahuna Download Kit, HP 32# copy paper Stamps: Focal image and sentiments from Polkadoodles Winnie White Christmas Big Kahuna Download Kit Dies/Punches: Stampin’ Up 1-1/4″ Circle Punch Accessories: Bearly Art precision craft glue, Tombow Mono permanent adhesive, Eyelet Outlet 8mm green Cut Jewels

I’d love to have one of everything, lol! Thanks so much for stopping by today – we’ll see you next time! ;)
Hi everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful week and you are continuing to remain safe and well! Several weeks ago one of my projects was featured on Scrapping4fun Challenges and I was asked to guest design in an upcoming challenge. Fast forward a bit… that challenge is now live and I’m delighted to share my GD inspiration project for #172 – Ocean! We’d love to see your project featuring anything in and around the ocean. Our sponsor is Polkadoodles so come on over and play with us for the chance to win a prize!
For this hybrid mermaid card, I started with a sea waves stencil and distress ink to create the background panel and adhered it to the card base. I purchased the Winnie Mermaid Kisses pre-colored digital image for my stash which I printed on Neenah Solar white cardstock and cut with a stitched oval die. I cut another stitched oval from light blue craft foam – one of my favorite tricks is to layer colored foam beneath an image so that the color peeks out from around the edge. I adhered the focal image to a slightly larger mini scallop die cut, then stamped a mermaid sentiment in black ink toward the bottom of the front panel. I added one tiny pearl to the clam shell she’s holding, some dimensional magic to the underwater bubbles, and a few flat-back pearls to the corners of the stenciled background.
I embellished the inside panel with a couple strips of blue cardstock and stamped another mermaid sentiment in black ink.
And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! What a sweet image!

Hello, crafty peeps! I have a special kind of project to share with you today, a card I created for the Scrapping4fun Challenges Guest Designer Challenge! Anyone who was a guest designer for Scrapping4fun Challenges this year has been invited to participate. We were allowed to choose our own theme as long as we follow this sketch:
I love sketches and pretty much followed this one to a ‘T’ (as I usually do) and created a pretty birthday card using five coordinating papers from the BasicGrey Marjolaine paper pad. I also used some silver foil and glitter Washi.
I used a variety of dies to achieve the elements in the sketch, along with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and leaf charm, and a little bit of bling.
I embellished the inside with leftover strips of paper used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in black ink. The front and inside sentiments are from Inspired by Stamping.
And here’s one more peek… I really love how this turned out! And that sketch is pure awesomeness! ;)

One of my projects was featured several weeks ago so I was asked to be a guest designer for Challenge #153 – Thanks / Thanksgiving / Gratitude. Bugaboo is sponsoring so come on over and play for a chance to win a prize!
I created a Thanksgiving card using Bugaboo’s Autumn Jar digital image which I colored with my Studio 71 alcohol markers. I just love this image, and as all Bugaboo images are, it was a pleasure to color!
I cut the image with a stitched mini scallop rectangle die, stamped a sentiment at the top, and layered it on foam and then the background created from three colors and patterns of paper from one of my favorite paper pads. Then I added several dark brown sequins.
I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the papers used on the front and then stamped a sentiment.
Here’s one more look… loving how this turned out! This month starts my absolute favorite time of year! ;)

Hi everyone! I’m happy to share that I’m once again guesting for Scrapping4fun Challenges! One of my art journal spreads was a Featured Creation a few weeks back, so here I am, lol! I’m thrilled to share my GD inspiration project for Challenge #110 – Masculine/Boys. Come play with us! I created a super cute masculine card that could easily be used for a birthday or for Father’s Day, using the Side Step Tool Box Card cut file from the Silhouette store. How flippin’ cute is this?!
The base was cut from red, the drawers from red and silver, the peg board from dark brown and the tools from yellow and silver cardstock. And I added a couple flat head screw brads. Oh, what fun!
One final shot showing the step card construction. I’m so smitten with this cut file!

Hello, my crafty friends! I’m very happy to share that I’m guest designing over at Scrapping4fun Challenges again! One of my cards was featured a few weeks back and the lovely Rachelle asked me to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge, so here I am! And I’m stoked to share my GD project for Challenge #103 – Winter Wonderland!
My inspiration came from the the gorgeous shades of blue in the inspiration photo. I immediately thought of “Winter Blues” and created a glittery blue thank you card. One can never have too many thank you cards in their stash, especially around the holidays. The shoe image I used is called Christmas Heels from Bugaboo Digi Stamps and I’ve had it in my stash for several years. I have a (slightly huge) shoe fetish and I have just about every one of Jodie’s shoe images, lol! I love them!
I colored the shoe with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut it. I cut a piece of blue glitter paper the size of the card base and cut the bottom off with a stitched scallop edge die to expose the white card base beneath. I used some Inspired by Stamping stamp sets for the front and inside. I stamped the front sentiment in the lower right corner of the card base and added some very light blue Crystal Drops. Super easy and super fun! :D
I kept the inside fairly simple with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel. I’m really diggin’ how this turned out, lol!
Products used: Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White and Night of Navy cardstock, DCWV Glitzy Glitter cardstock Stamps: Inspired by Stamping Teeny Tiny Greetings and You Are stamp sets Ink: Spectrum Noir- JG1, JG5, DR5, TB2, TB3, TB4, TB5; Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Sparkle Overlay Marker, Memento Tuxedo Black ink Dies/Punches: My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die Accessories: Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, Nuvo Duck Egg Blue Crystal Drops, Glossy Accents
