Happy New Year for the third time today!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today for the first time with the Sparkle and Shine Challenge as a Design Team member!!!  How exciting is this!!! Pretty exciting for me!!  The women on this team is amazing!!

Since its the first of the month, its time for our new challenge for the year!!!

Here is the inspiration photo that guided us this time around:

S&S Jan

Now take a look at my take on this photo:

Happy Birthday (S&S)

Take a closer look at that bling (wink of stella):

wink of stella

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I used Papertrey Ink Shaker Shapes Balloon Die to create a mask for my balloons.
  2. Then I used Distress Ink Seedless Preserves and Peacock Feathers to the masked area to create the balloons.
  3. Then I stamped the sentiment from WPlus9 Unforgettable stamp set in Ranger Archival Black Ink.
  4. I die cut the balloon ends out of silver paper (I don’t know who made the paper).  I used Stick It to adhered them to my card front.
  5. After that I added the finishing touches, the “bling”!! I added Clear Wink of Stella to the balloons and Rhinestones to the card front.

That easy!! It sure was.  After creating my card, I felt like I’ve seen it before.  Then I remembered Laura Basson’s card using the balloon die.  That card was the reason I bought that die back in June!!  This was the first time using it so it worked out perfectly!!

What do you think?

Now its your turn to give this challenge a try!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Create a Smile Stamps!!

If your looking for So Suzy Stamps January Challenge, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m here with a2z Scrapbooking today with our January Challenge!!!

Happy New Year to all of you!!!!  Our new challenge is all about Fireworks (add some glitter and bling)!!!!!

Check out the card I created for this challenge:

Thanks a bunch (a2z)

I used Wink of Stella and Hero Arts Pearls and Gems for my Fireworks!!  I went with a thank you card instead of a New Years card because thank you cards are in order for all of the gifts my children received from their relatives.

Creating this card was easy!!

Here’s how:

  1. My card base is from Michael’s Recollections Heavyweight cardstock.
  2. Then I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles Die to cut my card panel from Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock.
  3. Then I used Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Thanks and stamped the sentiment and stars.
  4. Then I die cut the Hero Arts Swallowtail Butterfly Fancy Die out and adhered the butterfly to the card panel using glue dots.
  5. For the bling, I added Clear Wink of Stella to the butterfly and the Hero Arts Pearls and Gems Natural Mixed Accents to the card front.

Lets take a closer look:

Thanks closeup (a2z)

Muse Challenge #124

Second Post for today
If your looking for The Alley Way Stamps post, click here


Hello everyone!!  I’m so happy to be here today.  I’m playing with the Muse Challenge today.  I haven’t played in a long time. I just haven’t had the time.

So it feels good to be able to play now.

The Muse this week is Ardyth and here is her card:


Take a look at my card:

Our Friendship Grows (MUSE)

I totally love this stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  Its called Our Friendship Grows.

To create this card, all I did was distress the background with Distress Ink Broken China and Mowed Lawn.

Then I stamped and die cut three of the flowers.  I used Copic Marker E33, E35, E37 to the center of the flower.

I attached the flower with foam adhesive and used my ruler and Copic Multiliner to draw in the stem.

I added Clear Wink of Stella to the center of the flower.

I stamped the sentiment using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

I trimmed my card panel down and adhered it to the card base.

Super easy and Fun!!

You will see more of theses flowers this week.  Such a pretty set of flowers.

Top Dog Dies – Butterfly

Hello everyone!!! It’s Top Dog Die Wednesday!!  I’m here today showcasing Top Dog Dies Butterfly Die Set!!

TDD Butterfly


When I first saw this butterfly die set I knew I had to have it.  Its super intricate.  I love the detail!

A couple of days ago I was on Instagram, my favorite social media site, and came across Bianca better known as@thecoloursofmagic.  She posted a finish piece of different distress inks blended together.  I fell in love. I knew I had to give this a try.


Take a look at her color combo:

FullSizeRender (1)


Totally awesome right!! Thanks Bianca for sharing!! Check her out, she has some great coloring photos in her feed.

Now take a look at my card:

Butterfly 4 (TDD)

I love how you can see the multicolors behind the butterfly.  I added some Clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer.

Butterfly 3 (TDD)

Such a great card to give to a friend.  I stamped Mama Elephant Sunday Sentiments on the inside of the card.

Butterflyinside (TDD)


Look at how beautiful those colors look behind that butterfly!  Love it.

Butterfly (TDD)

Butterfly 2 (TDD)

This card was easy to create:

1. I partial die cut my butterfly out of the card panel.

2. I used an ink blending tool to blend Distress Ink Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Seedless Preserve on my card base.

3. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the blended colors.

Tip: be careful when using the wink of stella on distress ink.  Since the distress ink activates with water, the liquid will move the colors around.  So good across the colors not up and down.

4. I added the card panel to the card base using Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.

5. I stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephants Sunday Sentiments on the inside of my card using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

6. I used my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to round the bottom corners.

7. I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins.

So what do you think?  I hope you like this card as much as I enjoy making it!

CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of May.

This month’s theme is Take a Stamp!!  That means take any stamp and create something, anything goes!! Now if that isn’t easy, I’m not sure what is!!

Take a look at my card:

There is Beauty in Simplicity (CS)

OMG!!  That butterfly is super amazing.  That butterfly comes from the new Tim Holtz’s Perspective stamp set.  I’m so glad I ordered it.  I will get a lot of mileage with that stamp.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my card base to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50 scored at 4.25).

2. I stamped the butterfly and the sentiment from Tim Holtz’s Perspective stamp set using My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink.

3. I colored the butterfly using Copic Markers: BV02, BV04, BV08 and R81.

4. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the butterfly for extra shimmer.

5. I cut a mask out of the butterfly to cover my pretty butterfly up.

6. I used WPlus9 Bloomsberry Spray Mist and the Shimmer Spray Mist to add splatters to my card front.

Those sprays are awesome.  Such a great added touch to my card.

7. I rounded the corners with the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.

Pretty neat right!!  Now its your turn to play along with us.

We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for May is: WOW! Embossing Powders.

Hello everyone!!  I’m here to share one of the cards I created for Kathy’s 30 day coloring challenge.

I used the new Lawn Fawn Gleeful Gardens stamp set to create my card.

Check out my card:

I love you so mush

I’m so excited about this card.  I really love how my coloring turned out.  I’ve been really trying to master my Copics and I finally feel like I got it.

Thanks to all of my Instagram friends for the encouragement and guidance.

I used Copic R24, R27, R29 and R89.  I’m loving that R89!!

I used Copic E47 and E49 for the stem.

I used W1 for the shadowing.

I added Your Next Stamp Clear Gumdrops. I’m obsessed with these.

I added Clear Wink of Stella to the top of the mushrooms.  So pretty in person.

Take a look at some of the photos I shared on Instagram to get me to my finished card.

It’s Christmas In October…

Hello everyone!!  I’m back again with another card for the Lawnscaping Challenge No. 91: Patterned Paper. This challenge was fun to play with.


I received my new Clearly Besotted Stamp Set made exclusively for Simon Says Stamp Winter Friends and Die set that I had to use.

This set is so cute I can’t believe it.  4 animal images and Santa Claus are the cutest things I’ve seen in awhile.

Take a look at my card:

My Deer Christmas Card

Tell me that reindeer isn’t the cutest little thing you’ve seen in a long time.  Look at that nose, so nice a red.

Look at how he matches the pattern patter behind him.  Those little tiny reindeer’s are adorable.

This card was very easy to make. Here is how I did that.

1. I cut my card base the A2 card size (4.24 x 5.50).

2. I cut my Doodlebug Home For the Holiday paper to fit on the front of my card front.

3. I cut my Neenah Solar White cardstock with my Lawn Fawn Stitched Banner Die, the smaller one.

4. I stamped my Reindeer from Winter Friends using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then I use the Die to cut him out.

5. I Copic markers to color my reindeer: Body: E40, E41, E43, E44, E49, Nose & Ears: R24, R27

6. I added Clear Wink of Stella to his nose so that it could be a shiny nose.

7. I adhered my Reindeer to my cardstock with foam adhesive. I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

8. I added Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine to the stitched banner.

9. I adhered the banner to the patten paper with foam adhesive.

10. I added Rudolph Red Skittles (how perfect are those and the name) to my banner.

Nice and Simple!!

What do you think?  Don’t you just love that little Reindeer!!
