Hi all!  Here's a little card I wanted to share because well, it's perfect for today!  ;)  These Bubbly Bears from Your Next Stamp are just so sweet!  I colored them with copics using a sort of swirly motion to give their fur a curly textured look.  "Celebrate" is from an MFT set (forgetting the name at the moment) and was embossed with gold ep on vellum.  I cut out some stars out of vellum and dp using the stacking stars die-namics. 

Thank you all SO much for stopping by!  Happy New Year's and Be Safe!  See you all TOMORROW for the Your Next Stamp New Digi Release Blog Hop!

MFTWSC154 - Love u

Hi all!  Here's my card for the MFTWSC154 sketch, a tad late...  ;)  This is the newly released Wish You Were Here PI.  She's so super cute and fun to color!  Another goodie I love from the new release is their Insulation Pink cardstock!  Such a soft color and a great neutral, in my opinion.  "LOVE" was cut out using the LLD Accent It - Celebrate.  I also used the following die-namics:  mix & match banners, hearts a plenty, by the letters and the scallop ribbon border.  I'm liking this insulation pink, grape jelly and black combo!

Pink and Kraft Joy - CC456 & FLLCDEC13B

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the Flourishes December release challenge, FLLCDEC13B and for today's color challenge on SplitCoastStampers, CC456.  I used Flourishes Handmade Snowflakes stamp set for this untraditional Christmas card.  I used MFT's bubblegum, kraft and factory green inks.  The stripes on the bubblegum cardstock are from the Striped Backgrounds, also stamped in bubblegum.  This is my first card using the sequins I bought probably 4 months ago - fun little detail!  I cut out the sentiment with one of my Pierced Circle STAX and added a little tag from Blueprints 1.  Did you see MFT is coming out with STITCHED Circle STAX tonight?!?  Gotta have those!  ;)

Thankful for you - MFTWSC153

Hi all!  Here's my card for the MFTWSC153.  I used my DC Thankful Leaves set for the first time, along with the matching die-namics.  I used the woodgrain BG stamp to add to the "woodsy" feel.  I inked the leaves in safety orange, olive, chocolate brown, orange fizz and a bit of wild cherry.  The veins of the leaves were stamped in chocolate brown, as well.  The pretty scallop is from Blueprints 6 and the sentiment strip is from Blueprints 1.  I added a fuse green button, some hemp thread and a couple of corrugated leaves from the branch with leave die-namics for the finishing touches.  The card base is safety orange and (in case you can't tell) this is a 5x5 card.

Happy plaid birthday

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for fun using the FMS117 sketch.  I created the plaid pattern using MFT's plaid background builder set.  I had hubby in mind for this card which is 1. why it's Clean and Simple and masculine and 2. I used nightshift blue and wild cherry to represent his favorite football team (NY Giants), even though their's is a more royal blue, but that's ok.  ;)  The sentiment is from the LLD Document It - Bingo set, which I also stamped in nightshift blue.  I added some nightshift blue stars using the Stacking Stars die-namics and popped up the smallest one and adding one silver brad.  I added a postage stamp border for a little extra detail.

Your Next Stamp Fun Friday and SACC - Season's Greetings

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  Here's my card for the latest Your Next Stamp Fun Friday challenge and the Sister Act Card Challenge!  I went with a fairly clean and simple look using this newly released image, Teddie's Stocking.  TOO cute!!!  I colored it with copics, adding a dotted background.  The sentiment is from MFT.  I stamped it on a pierced circle stax after stamping it with one of the washi patterns stamps in safety orange.  The faux brads in the lower right corner are from one of the dies in the Blueprints 9.
