little cloud raining hearts! There's also some fun fun sentiments 
and one snarky hashtag!
Here's a look at Sassy the unicorn in all her glory!



Sassy



Today I have 2 cute cards to share with you using Sassy the Unicorn!

For my first card I used some pretty patterned paper for my background and I colored
and glittered up my pretty little unicorn.  I just love the sweet cloud that comes
in this stamp set! I gave my cloud the proverbial "silver lining" with some glitter!
I separated my patterned paper with a decorative scalloped edge using the 
For some sparkly finishing touches I used some clear sequins as accents.


On my second card I used the brand new Rabbit Hole Circles and Stars stencil to create a fun
background for my card in rainbow colors. Next I used the Stitched Scalloped Border die 
again on some purple glittered card stock to set off the background of the card.
I stamped the sentiment from the Sassy stamp set and finished it off with
the word "Awesome" as a die cut.
Of course I couldn't leave well enough alone, I just had to add some glitter
to my sweet unicorn and her cloud!
I discovered that I am physically unable to make a unicorn card
without using copious amounts of glitter............ sorry, not sorry🤩🤩

Pear Blossom Power Pack Hop




Welcome to my blog if this is your first time stopping by and if you've
been here before than welcome back!
Today I have a really exciting project to share with you!
My friend Amanda from Pear Blossom Press has asked me to join in on her
The Power Pack is an incredible device that allows you to make easy 
light up cards! Trust me when I tell you how easy it is!
I was intimidated at first but I'm so glad I gave it a try because it turned out
to be SOOOOOO much fun! I even made a video to show you my entire
process for making my card. I had never made a light up card until now but I 
know I will be making more thanks to Amanda's awesome Power Packs!

Here are 2 pictures of the card I created for the Blog Hop,
the second shows the card lit up in the dark.
I'll give a quick description with links to products used but 
for the full instructions please see the video below.




Card Recipe:

Step 1 - I used the Kat Scrappiness Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Dies to cut a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock.



Step 2 - Next I taped the Brutus Monroe Tangled Waves Stencil to my card stock and used the Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes to blend Twisted CitronPeacock Feathers and Salty Ocean 
Distress Inks over the stencil.



Step 3 - I stamped the Angler Fish and Starfish from The Rabbit Hole Designs  SoFishticated Stamp Set in Gina K Amalgam Ink and colored with Copic markers.



Step 4 - I used my Scan n Cut to cut out the images and painted Inkon 3 Liquid Pixie Dust to them. This will give your images beautiful sparkle and shine. I used the Stitched Flag Dies  to stamp my sentiment on to and colored with Twisted Citron Distress Ink.



Step 5 - Place your stenciled panel over your card base and mark where you want your Power Pack 
battery and LED light to go. Build your circuit with the copper tape included in the Power Pack by connecting positive to positive and negative to negative. Use a double layer of foam tape to build up your card around your circuit.  Make sure not to cover the copper tape with the foam tape.

 

Step 6 - Press the button and watch your LED lightbulb light up!
Step 7 - Repeat step 6 over and over and over because it's just SO MUCH FUN!!!!



You can see the video on YouTube or you can watch it here:

Doggone Birthday


Good morning and welcome to my blog!
It's my turn over on the Rabbit Hole blog today and I have a fun shaker 
card to share with you using the Doggone stamp set.


I just love the looks on the dogs faces in this stamp set!
I also love making shaker cards and I never have enough birthday cards on hand. 

Card Recipe

1)  I layered some cute dog themed patterned paper on a kraft card base.

2) Next I covered the patterned paper with another smaller kraft panel and stamped
my sentiment directly in the center.

3) Then it was time to create a shaker frame from more kraft paper and acetate.

4) I poured some red and gold sequins over the sentiment to match the patterned paper
and then laid the shaker frame over the sequins.

5) The last step was to color my cute doggies with some Copic markers 
in some light grays and adhere to the shaker frame.

Easy peasy and a cute card to give for some belated birthday wishes!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and make sure to check back
on the 29th for the exciting August release!

I Like Big Cups

Welcome back to my blog and thanks for stopping by!
I'm up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today with 
your daily dose of caffeine in the Intensive Coffee Unit!

Today I have a fun card to share with you using the Kat Scrappiness
Layered Coffee Cup Die and a funny sentiment stamp from the
Sassy Coffee  stamp set by Technique Tuesday.


I started off with a cream colored A2 sized coffee base and layered a kraft colored panel
cut out with the Kat Scrappiness Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle dies.
Then I embossed it with the Tim Holtz On The Go embossing folder.
I used the Kat Scrappiness Layered Coffee Cup Die because I wanted a large
coffee cup die to take up most of the room on the front of the card.
I just think it paired so well with that hilarious sentiment!
A while back I saw a card on Instagram using that Starbucks logo stamp and 
I loved it!  After a little research I found out that it was sold
at Viva Las Vegas Stamps and I had to order it.
The truth is I'm not really a fan of Starbucks coffee (too strong)
but I think their logo is super cool! 
What self respecting Coffee Loving Cardmaker could 
resist a Starbuck's logo stamp.😂🤣
I used Lucky Clover Distress Ink for the Starbuck's stamp.
To get the coffee koozie to match, I also blended the same ink on some paper
to cut the koozie out of and ran it through the EK Succkess paper crimper.
I finished my card off with some cute little coffee beans from the 
Kat Scrappiness Let's Get Caffeinated stamp set and of course 
I used Ground Espresso Distress Ink to stamp them with!

Thanks so much for joining me today in my ICU,
I'll be back in a couple of weeks with some more caffeinated inspiration for you!

Have a great day, I already am!

Congratulations Peonies



Hello crafty peeps!
It's my day on The Rabbit Hole Designs Blog and I have a Congratulations
card to share with you today. I used the masking technique to make my card and the 
Pretty in Peony stamp set with some quick watercoloring.
Here's how this card came together:

  1. The first step was to cut a scalloped rectangle frame from watercolor paper.
  2. Next I stamped "Congratulations" from the Happily Ever After stamp set across the middle of the paper.
  3. I wanted to do some masking over the sentiment so I used purple tape to cover it up.
  4. Now it was time to stamp the peonies over the tape.  I stamped the flowers repeatedly over to cover the width of the card.
  5. Next I used my Zig watercolor markers and water to paint the flowers.
  6. The next step was to remove the purple tape and reveal the stamping.
  7. I used a ruler to draw a black line above and below the flowers to really make the sentiment stand out between the flowers.
  8. The last step was to do some ink splattering and apply the watercolored panel to a golden yellow card base and apply some sequins.


Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to stop by The Rabbit Hole Design's blog

great on the swirly embossed background.  I also made a cute border at the bottom of the

Paper Sweeties July 2019 New Release Party




Welcome back to my blog crafty friends!
Today is the New Release Party at Paper Sweeties and the 2 new stamp sets
with matching dies we sneak peeked yesterday are available in the shop now!
The first one is called Ahoy Matey and the second one is called 
Beach Therapy with matching dies called Beach Therapy Sweet Cuts.


Ahoy Matey

Beach Therapy
Beach Therapy Sweet Cuts

I decided to use that awesome ship stamp from Beach Therapy with
the cute little heart on the sail.  I just love how the sails look all colored up with my
Copic markers. I popped the ship up on the largest die from the
Sweet Cuts Circle Scallop Frames. I picked out some cute stripey patterened
paper for my background and I added the note in the bottle stamp from Ahoy Matey
to the sentiment. The sentiment is from the stamp set released last month
called Mermaid Wishes.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, don't forget to 
check back tomorrow for Release Rewind Day!
