Happy Birthday to You

Hello, here is a card I made for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week.  The challenge is called "B is for?"  Using the prompt of B, this card is blue, and its a birthday card. I used the SSS Kaleidoscope background stamp and colored it with Copics.  I used the MFT Mod Stitched rectangles to cut this panel as the background for my card.  It is placed on a MFT Blue Raspberry card base.  I white heat embossed the sentiment, from MFT Handwritten Happiness and then placed some pearls and gems as accents.  Thanks for stopping by!!

Here's a real simple card I put together for this week's MFT Sketch Challenge.  This sketch is perfect for those clean and simple cards.  Love it!!  I used the MFT Celebrate word die and More Essential Sentiments for the sentiment underneath.  The background is Nuvo shimmer powders watercolored and then I placed some gems for accents.  
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

So, it's December 1st, and I swear my kids screamed Hooray this morning.  They love the Christmas season, from decorating and baking, to helping others and volunteering, its probably their most favorite time of year.  I just love watching their excitement and I am thankful for these special times with them.  I made this card with spring green Nuvo embellishment mousse and a stencil. I cut the hooray from black cardstock and added a few clear gems for accents.  Really easy and simple card.
Thanks for stopping by.

Another Hooray for today, I was chosen as the Featured Stamper over on SplitocastStampers!  I am over the moon excited and honored.

Thanks, You're All Kinds of Amazing

Hello!  Here's another "Thanks" card for a thankful month of crafting.  The butterfly on this card is from Birch Press designs (Paradiso Butterfly).  I love how these dies layer together to create one awesome butterfly.  The Thanks word is an Altenew die.  The sentiment comes from the MFT Anything But Basic Friendship set.  The white panel is cut with MFT Wonky Stitched rectangles.  It is layered on an MFT bubblegum card base.
Thanks for stopping by!!

Thanks (Alcohol Ink)

Hello there, here is another "thanks" card since we are in the midst of celebrating Thanksgiving.  I die cut several of the Lawn Fawn thanks from an alcohol inked panel I made with rainbow colors.  The stitched hearts are also from an alcohol inked panel scrap piece (see, never throw those scraps away!!) The panels are cut from the MFT mod stitched rectangles.  The colored panel is the SSS kaleidoscope background stamp colored with copics. The card base is MFT sour apple cardstock.  Thanks so much for checking it out!

Thanks, You're the Best of the Best

Here's a card for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, the theme this week is Thanks/Thanksgiving.  I made this card for one of my kids' excellent teachers.  I love the Floral Bliss stamp set from SSS.  For this card, I used Zig watercolor markers to color the image.  I used the scalloped rectangle die for the panel and MFT grapesicle cardstock as the base.  I cut the word thanks from a SSS die.
