Matey Birthday

Yarr! Today's card features a fun pirate stamp set from Neat & Tangled, and I've paired it with Echo Park's pirate paper. I used bright colors, along with a few matching enamel dots.

I really love how this card turned out!

Birthday Pony

I wasn't really sure about sharing this card. There's nothing about it that I dislike, per-say, but it somehow still makes me feel underwhelmed. It could be the simplicity of the design, or maybe it's just that I've used this layout/supply combination a lot lately.

Still, it's not a failed card, so I might as well share.

Thanks for reading!

Mountain of Thanks

I'm not really a camping person. For one, I'm terrified of the legions of bugs and spiders that abound in nature. And then there's the mountain lions, the bears and the angry badgers that make me even more nervous. That said, I do love the natural beauty of mountains and forests, and I'm perpetually drawn to all the camping paper, stickers and stamps. I've got quite a collection going and I still find the different bits and pieces very inspiring.

I thought I would make good use of one of my favorite papers and I paired it with an adorable raccoon and a thank you sticker. I think it turned out really great.

Summer Melon

Today's card is a summery little card featuring a watermelon and a punny sentiment. I paired the stamps with a striped patterned paper and a stitched circle. I added a die-cut sun behind the watermelon to help it stand out a little better. A few summery enamel dots helped tie it all together.

Clever

I'm still playing with my dies and some of my beloved and favorite patterned paper from Lawn Fawn. I paired the paper with the Mom + Me stamp set and added some fun enamel dots.

Thanks a Latte

Today's card features a lovely punny sentiment that I've embossed in gold on some black cardstock. I love the embossed sentiment look, but I don't seem to create them often. Since my recent motivation is to make better use of my supplies, I pulled out some dies and my heat tool to make today's card.

Thanks for taking a look!

Peekaboo Bears

I mentioned wanting to use my dies more, so I pulled out a peek-a-boo circles panel to use on a card. I used a couple of stamp sets from MFT that feature a sweet teddy bear and added one to each circle. A very subtle sentiment on the bottom and a craft card base tied everything together.

Dreaming of you

I really liked this cute sleeping bunny from MFT, and I wanted to make a very simple card that features him. I had a pretty elaborate idea of making a scene card set in a bedroom with lots of layers and textures. But in the end, I just made it very simple and added a starry patterned paper under a frame and a sentiment banner.

Octopi Couple

Today's card is a cute little love card featuring the adorable octopus from Lawn Fawn. I stamped and colored a whole bunch of them, and as I was putting them away, a couple got tangled up together - and it looked just like they're holding hands. So, I added the adorable couple to a simple card and embellished with some hearts and enamel dots.

Thanks for taking a look!

Shark Bubbles






This is probably one of the simplest cards I've made in ages, but I do like how it turned out. I paired an awesome gradient pattern paper I found in my stash with the cute fish and shark from Lawn Fawn.

I stamped out a bunch of bubbles from the set and added a few clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh to add a bit of dimension and texture.
