I miss you….

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Less Is More!!


Their theme is week is CASE A DT CARD!

Yes, you read the right!!  We get to case one of the DT cards this week.

I choose Anne card!!  The reason I did that is because I just received my new Mama Elephant Three Amigos Stamp Set and I wanted so much to use it.  Anne card is perfect for it!!

Take a look at Anne’s card:

Card33I love how she kept her card with one stamped image and some doodling along the edge of the card.  Easy Peasy!

Take a look at my card:

I miss you

Did I hit it on the nail or what!!  I love how my card turned out.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my cardstock to an A2 size card, 4.5 x 5.5.

2. I stamped my image from Mama Elephants Three Amigos.  I love this stamp set.  These little guys are so cute.

3. I used Copic Markers to color this little guy in.

Body: E31 and E35

Paper: B000 and BG02

Shadow: W1

4. I used my Copic multiliner 0.3 to draw the squally line around my card.

5. I tied Stampin’ Up! Basic Black Baker’s Twine around the top of my card.

I thought about adding some embellishments but decided against it.  The card looks great with out them.

I miss you 2

So what do you think?  Do I have a chance to win?  We will see.  Either way, I love how this card turned out.

This is also for Kathy’s #thedailymarker30day coloring challenge.  She has really allowed me to practice my coloring and I believe I’m getting better because of it. I can’t believe we only have 4 more days before it ends.  It feel like yesterday it started.

I’m also entering AAA Cards bare naked CAS design challenge this week.

Crazy Birds…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Less is More challenge.  Its One Layer Week and the subject should include an Animal.

Less-Is-More-HeaderI’ve been playing along with Kathy’s 30 days of coloring challenge and I finally got my hands on Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamp set and had to color them in.

Take a look at my card:

Happy Your My Friend

Don’t you just love these birds??  When I first saw these birds, I wasn’t a fan but then I saw all the amazing things everyone was creating with them.  So I decided that I need to get this set and I made the best choice ever.

I used my new Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set.  Can I just say these are so yummy!!  Totally cream.

The stamped sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Flowers On My Mind stamp set.

All I did was take my time and watercolor each image and letting it dry.

So what do you think?  Let me know. I think they are so cute, LOL!!!

Same but Different Challenge #6

Second Post

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with a new challenge that I’m participating in and its called the Same but Different Challenge #6!!

logo_same+but+differentFrancine from 1001 CARTES and Anja from Little Butterfly Creations are the co-owners of this challenge and I have to tell you they are super fabulous at card making.  Their use of color is totally amazing.  I love seeing their cards.  Such inspiration!!

I first discovered this challenge a couple of months back when they first started, but I couldn’t participate, because I didn’t have the stamp set that Francine and Anja used.  I have it now, LOL!!

So, I’ve been dying to give this challenge a try so I put forth the effort to get the butterfly die that they used.

Lets take a look at the die we are using for this challenge.  They are using the “Chrissy Butterfly” from Simon Says Stamp:


When I looked on Simon Says Stamp website, I couldn’t find that die.  I reached out to Francine to let her know that I can’t find that die but that I did find a die that was very similar but it had a different name. I found the Paulina Butterfly Die.  Francine said that was fine, its the same die just a bit bigger.  Yayyy!!

Paulina butterly

Now take a look at my card:

Take your time to be happy

I love how my butterfly turned out.  I had a couple of watercolor pieces that I wasn’t sure what to do with and now look.  I found a use for it!!

So, let me make you laugh.  I thought this die partial die cut but it cut straight through.  So I had to improvise.  I just glued the center of the butterfly back in place so that it could appear as if it was partial die cut.  Nice right!!

My sentiment is from Create a Smile Botanical Love stamp set.

Lets take a closer look at my card:

Take your time to be happy 2

I love how clean cut the butterfly looks.

Take your time to be happy 3

This sentiment is so fitting for this card.  It matches the butterfly and the watercolor colors!

Take your time to be happy 4I love how this turned out!  What do you think? Let me know below. I would love to hear from you.

I’m also entering this card into the Less is More Challenge: Week 213 – This makes me happy!


Creating pretty cards and hanging out with my children makes me happy!

Hello everyone!!  I’m back with another challenge that I haven’t played with in a very long time.

The Less is More Challenge is celebrating their 4th Year!  How exciting is this!!  I’m so glad I get to play along with them this week.

This week is a color challenge and the color are Pink and Grey!

I love these colors.  My high school uniform was pink and grey and I loved wearing it!!  The colors just matched perfectly. LOL!!!

Take a look at my card:


OMG!!  Isn’t that little baby elephant the cutest animal you’ve seen!!!  I love it!!

Here’s how I created this card:

1. I cut Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to an A2 size(4.25 x 5.50) top folding card.

2. I cut a flower using Waffle Flower Craft Flower Circles Die Set out of Simon Says Stamp Cotton Candy cardstock and some scrap white card stock for depth.

3. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Wafer Die to cut a circle out of Authentique Classique: Pretty Pattern paper.

4. I cut my baby elephant from Top Dog Dies Elephants Die Set out of fog cardstock and the little heart out of the cotton candy cardstock.

5.  Now its time to put the card together. I adhered the stitched circle to the card base first. Then I attached the flower die.  Then I adhered the elephant and heart inside the flower circle. I used foam adhesive.

6. I added the love sentiment from Crate Paper Kiss Kiss Rub Ons.

7. I adhered Stampin’ Up! rhinestone to both sides of the sentiment.

That’s it!!  I think this card is so cute!!  What do you think?  Let me know.

I’m also linking up to AAA Card Challenge.  The theme is Love.  I’m super happy that I get to play along with them this time.

Giving Thanks

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with the Less is More Week 179 Challenge.  I haven’t played with them in awhile so I decided to join them with their Earth Tone Color Challenge.

So, you guessed it, it’s the tenth hour and I have to hurry to submit my card.  So, no long talking today.

Take a look at my card:

Giving Thanks for you

Giving Thanks for you close up

I just received my new order from Simon Says Stamp Kelly Purkey’s sale.  I ordered the feathers die and thought it would work well with this challenge.

I die cut the four feathers from Lawn Fawn’s Into the Woods pattern paper.

Then I attached them to each other using a Stampin’ Up! glue dots.

Then I added Stampin’ Up! linen thread to a retired Stampin’ Up! naturals button, tied a bow and adhered it to the top of my feathers.

I stamped my sentiment giving thanks from Simon Says Stamp Giving Thanks Stamp Set with Colorbox Chestnut Roan chalk inkpad.

Nice, clean and simple card with a lot of white space.

What do you think?

Beauty Defined By You!

Hello everyone! I’m so excited!!!!  Do you want to know why?  Well, I’m about to tell you.

I was up all night last night working on……Yes, you guessed it..WATER-COLORING!!!  Yes, I have so much fun when I’m working with watercolors.

I was so excited to see that Less Is More Theme Challenge this week is WATER-COLORING.  How could I not join in on the fun.  I might have to create more than one card for this.  I have so much fun with this technique.

Well enough talking take a look at my card:

Thinking of you front

For this card I used my Koi Watercolors and a 1/2″ flat paintbrush. The colors that I used were #7, #4, #20 and #19.  To see what those colors are you can click here to see my swatch.

I also used my new Simon Says Stamp Set that came in the mail today.  I couldn’t wait to try it out.  It’s from their July Card Kit.

I added some sequins, rhinestones and rounded the corners.

I added my watercolor panel to my watercolor card base using Copic Marker -X-Press It High Tack Double Sided Tape.  I received this tape in my Copic Certification class and wanted to try it out.  It is super easy to tear and it holds the watercolor panel down, no lifting.  I will keep trying it out and let you know if it’s a good buy.

Easy Breezy 1-2-3!!!
