SSS Wednesday Challenge : Spring Color Inspiration

Good morning everyone. I love this week's SSS Wednesday challenge. Pastel colors are my favorite and Lawn Fawn has so many cute stamp sets, you can literally create any project your heart desires. I broke out 2 Lawn Fawn stamp sets, 1 die set, 1 lawn trimming, and 4 ink pads for this adorable Easter tag. I used the ink pads to create a watercolor background that I could stamp on and then I added that cute little bunny to the bottom with foam tape. I am enjoying blogging again and entering challenges. I forgot how much I used to enjoy it. Here is my entry for this week's challenge:
Have a great day everyone!

Lawn Fawn products used:
Stamps : Hello Baby, Happy Everything
Dies : Stitched Party Banners
Inks : Wild Rose, Mermaid, Freshly Cut Grass, Sunflower
Trimmings : Pink Lemonade

SSS Monday Challenge

Hi everyone, back with another SSS Monday challenge.  This week is dedicated to all things that hop, which makes sense with Easter coming in less than a week.  I recently got some really cute bunny dies from My Creative Time and I thought they would go well with a nice watercolored border with some springtime colors. Here is this weeks card:
Thanks for visiting!
Have a great day,

SSS Wednesday Challenge

I work night shift at the hospital and sometimes when I get home in the morning I feel like playing more than I do sleeping, this was one of those mornings.  I finished a card today that I started making over the weekend.  It's a birthday card for one of my daughter's friends.  She requested a cupcake shaker favorite kind!!!!  I figured since it was a birthday card I would enter it in the SSS Wednesday challenge.  Here is the cute card filled with 3 separate shaker windows and 3 adorable cupcakes.  I used the Hog Heaven stamp set from MFT for the cupcake and the happy birthday sentiment is from a SSS set called handwritten borders.  The inside sentiment is from a Mama Elephant set called Carnival Toppers.  I even decorated  and personalized the envelope with the cute little piggy.  Ok I should probably get some sleep now so I'm not a zombie at Passover Seder tonight.

Ok have a great day everyone!
I already am!

Happy Friday everyone!  Just dropping by again to post a card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.  The theme this week is birthday cards.  I made a cute slider birthday card recently using the SSS birthday farm animals stamp set.  I just love the shading and coloring on the card.  This type of card is a little more involved to make but totally worth it!!  There are so many awesome tutorials on You Tube.  Here is the front of the card:
And here is the card when it is opened:
I just love how this card turned out!
Have a great day everyone!

SSS Monday Challenge

Happy Friday everyone!  I thought I'd post a few cards today for the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge.  This week the theme is one of my favorites.....RAINBOWS!!  I have always loved rainbows ever since I was a kid.  I have 2 cards I want to enter today, one is a thank you card and one is a love themed card.
The thank you card is made with watercolor pencils and a Lawn Fawn die.  I just love how the rainbow colors pop against the black background.  I am also a big fan of the hand stitching around the border of the card.  Here is the first card:
For the second love card I used a cute rainbow die that I have had a long time.  I just love the color combination of the pink and yellow patterned paper ending in the cute teal polka dot hearts. In my opinion you can't go wrong with anything rainbow.
Here is the second card:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
I hope you have a wonderful Friday,
I already am!

Papertrey Ink Make it Monday

Wow, it's been a while.  I've missed blogging and I used to really enjoy it.  I never used to miss a Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge so I thought it would be fun to revive the old blog with this week's challenge.  The "out of the box" theme seemed like fun but in actuality there were so many possibilities it was hard to pick a design.  I have always loved the Rosie Posie stamp set and I stamped the flowers with an ombre ink pad by Recollections.  I just love the varied colors on the flowers.  The "thanks" die is from Lawn Fawn and the brown frame is actually a die I purchased from China via an app called Wish.  They have super cheap dies that work just as well as the expensive dies we all love.  Hopefully I can get back into the swing of blogging and sharing my cards.  It's such good therapy! Thanks for visiting my blog and have a great day!  I already am!
