Hi there Crafty Friends!

A blog post on a Friday?

Well I just found out today is National Find a Rainbow Day. So I decided to move this up a day and post it today.

Anyway if you haven’t looked outside lately the world is kind of a mess. So I thought I would bring out some bright colors and make some rainbow cards.

I actually have 2 cards to share with you today!

I really don’t take advantage of my Tiny Textures Stamp Set enough! It’s such an awesome stamp set and so amazing for fun backgrounds and accents on a card.

I love how these rainbow backgrounds came out and they are both one layer cards!

I hope the bright colors help make your day a little brighter

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. Have a crafty day!

Hi there Crafty Friends!

I feel like this is the most boring post title ever… But I had absolutely no idea what to name this post so I just named it after the stamp set I used 🤷‍♀️

Anyway moving on from my boringness I have a fairly simple card to share today but I absolutely love how it came out.

I didn’t do a very good job of keeping up with the 30 day coloring challenge this last go round but if we’re being totally honest I never really do… I actually managed to participate 2 days this time! Pretty sure my record is 5… but 2 days is better then no days! And the challenge isn’t quite over yet!

I colored this awesome stamp from Hero Arts and Gina K Designs illustrated by my lovely friend Hannah and seriously if you haven’t checked out her work yet you need to! Click on her name above and check our her blog!

I went with this cool blue and purple thing even though when I started I wanted the flowers to be pink and I’m not really sure how pink turned into blue and purple… this card went on an interesting journey.

After I colored the flowers I did the scariest thing I could do and cut it into 6 pieces but then I ended up with a cool effect on the card so I got lucky.

Behind the new little 6 tile mosaic thing I just made is a Tim Holtz Stencil I just used my life changing brushes to stencil in some really light ink blending to add a little something to the background

Hi there Crafty Friends!

I’ve been still working on getting all my stuff organized. But does that project ever really end…

A few months ago Waffle Flower came out with a color combo/swatch bundle. I bought the bundle and I have to say I absolutely love it!

Today’s video shows a few way I’ve used this super awesome product collection!

Hi there crafty friends!

I’ve been super excited by all my new superhero stamp sets that I can’t stop making cards with them!

This one is super cute and easy and I think it would make an awesome party invitation.

The circles were so easy to stamp and cut out on my scan n cut! Then I just put them together how i wanted and boom done!

It doesn’t show up well in the pictures but there’s also a star embossing folder underneath to add just a little something.

Hi there Crafty Friends!

I’m back with another Christmas/winter card. I had one left but I sent it late and was waiting to hear that it had been received before I shared. 🙂

This card is also pretty simple but I was having the worst heat embossing day ever! I could just not get it right! But I did finally get to a point where it was OK at least…

I love snowflakes anyway but I just love the style of these. They almost look more like ice crystals than snowflakes. Reminds me a lot of Queen Elsa.

Hello Crafty Friends!

It’s the first video of 2020!

If you’ve followed this blog for awhile you’ll know not long after starting this blog I discovered the wonderful world of card sketches.

I’ve always struggled with coming up with layouts for my cards and this took so much stress away from my crafting! I don’t have to come up with the layout on my own. Someone else did the hard part for me.

This weeks video goes through the basics of card sketches. Scroll down below the video for links to my favorite sources for sketches as well as links to some of the stamps used in the video.

Encouraging Valentine

Hi there crafty friends!

So I decided to take a different take on Valentine’s day this year.

Normally I just do a valentines for friends type card but this year I was digging through my box of unused stamps and found this great set from Honeybee Stamps and thought it would make a great encouraging valentines card.

I was also in the mood for some foiling so did some of that too. 🙂

This card was super simple to put together. I’m always a fan of quick and easy cards!

Hi there Crafty Friends!

I’m here today with 2 birthday cards!

I’ve been doing a lot of coloring with my copics and prismacolors working on my classes at Kit and Clowder and I was in the mood to mix it up a little bit with some watercolors!

Now I am still learning with watercolors but I’m pretty happy with how these came out.

I used to think water coloring was super intimidating. But really it’s not that much different then what you would do with your markers and pencils!

My Favorite Things From Creativation 2020

It’s that time of year again! Creativation was a few weeks ago and I’m here with my list of favorites and new products I’m most excited for in 2020!

Nothing gets me as excited as new craft products… Well expect maybe Disney Trips…..

I don’t have links for the products below as many of them won’t be released for awhile yet but keep your eyes peeled!

Now on to my favorites! In no particular order:

  1. Thermoweb/Rina K Designs: Last Year Rina launched a line of bright neon inks as part of the Gina K link line. This year she’s brought the line to Thermoweb! I absolutely love the bright neon colors of her Electropop line! And they look amazing with what Thermoweb has done too! I absolutely can’t wait for the Glitz Gels! But the Enamel is awesome too! This will definitely find it’s way into my craft room .
  2. Thermoweb Transfer Gel Duo: I have the old version of the Decofoil transfer gel so I’m not sure how quickly this will find it’s way into my craft room. But if you’re someone who has wanted to get into foiling without investing in a laminator this is the perfect product for you! You can have all the fun of foiling and flock just using your die cut machine!
  3. Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Die: This is Lawn Fawns new interactive die and I just love it! I think it adds a really fun little interactive element to a card! And imagine all the little things you can hide behind the window!
  4. Lawn Fawn Stencils: Lawn Fawn is also adding new stencils to their line! These scene building stencils look so fun and I’m so excited to see what everyone makes with them.
  5. Heidi Swap/ MINC: Taking it back to the foiling. This may be the thing that I’m most excited for! A TONER INK PAD! THIS IS A MAJOR GAME CHANGER FOR YOU FOILING PEOPLE OUT THERE! Finally we can foil our stamps! I’ll admit the ink pad looks a little like a bit of a pain to use. But still we can foil stamp now!!
  6. Altenew Craft Mat: I didn’t see much about this specifically but it’s definitely caught my eye. I really want to change up the background where I film my videos and this looks like it might be just perfect. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for this one.

So now it’s your turn! What new products have you seen that your excited for? What did I maybe miss? Let me know in the comments below!
