TWO for Mojo Monday

Hello! Just a quick post from me as I want to make the deadline for the Mojo Monday challenge tonight! I pulled out some patterned papers and the Glorious Globes set from Papertrey Ink and came up with two cards. 

I'd never used this set before and it was on my must-do list for January. I'm glad I inked it up, I see so many possibilities with the globe images and cute sayings. 

My first card uses the sketch as shown. I love that Julee gives us the measurements as it really helps, especially with a sketch with many layers like this one. 

Here's the card. 

Here's the sketch. 

Since I had all the stuff out, I put together a second card using the same stamps and different papers. This time I turned the sketch on its side. 

So glad you have come by today. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

My Monthly Hero January Card Kit 2019

Hello! Happy Friday. I can't believe one more week has gone by! 
I created three cards over this past week using the monthly kit from Hero Arts, and I have to tell you how much I love this kit! The stamps and dies are super fun but you get many other supplies as well that make it a terrific value. I began by stamping the images, coloring them with Copics, and then die cutting them. 

The stamps involve a fabulous floral shop display that I featured in the first card. I just love that bicycle image, I know it will be handy for many types of occasions. 

The second card was inspired by the patterned paper in my stash. Framing the three images with die cuts, I added only small hearts and some ribbon from the kit as embellishments. This one is so simple but you know what? It's my favorite. 

For the last project I created a shaker card using the heart-shaped balloons for a Valentine's greeting. 

As always, I thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you have a really wonderful day.

Love the MUGS

Hello crafty friends! 
I've been away from my stamp room this month but I have squeezed in just a teeny bit of time to stamp. Using the limited supplies that I have with me has been refreshing! 

I'm popping in today with a re-make just in time for the Transformation Tuesday Challenge at Papertrey Ink. It's one of my favorite challenges because it encourages us to tweak a card that we've already made. 

I loved this card I made for my Christmas stash this year. 

Today's card shows a remake using the same stamps and a Valentine's theme instead. I changed the style from elegant to clean and layered. I kept it simple using die cut images, a few fishtail tags, and embossed and die cut details on the mugs. Crystal effects on the rose and striped heart add glossy interest too.

PTI supplies used: Merry Mugs stamp sets and dies, card stock and Penned Elegance sentiment stamps. If you get a chance, check out the challenge HERE to see the beautiful cards Laurie made!
I enjoyed sharing this with you. Hope your day is wonderful!

Just Give Me Stamps

Hello everyone, I am glad to welcome you to my blog this January 2019! I hope the new year is off to a good start for you. 
I intended to tell you that I'm taking a break from my blog for this month, but as it turns out, I have some cards to share.
I should have titled this "Just Give Me Stamps - with flowers on them" because that is what I love! 
You can take me out of the craft room but the stamps must come along, HA!

Both cards were stamped with the SSS Mandy's Flowers set and colored with Copic markers. Papers and that gorgeous scalloped die are from PTI. 
That's it for me. Wishing you a wonderfully fresh day, filled with love.
