Birthday Card using CTMH Products

Hi friends so happy that you have stopped by!

Today I am sharing a fun and simple birthday card. I used the CTMH Artistry Cartridge and CTMH Birthday Sparkles stamp set!!

Here is my card...


I took some white embossing paste and some Cashmere CTMH ink to add some color to my paste. Using a dotted stencil I applied the paste to the base of my card to add a little texture.

I cut the ice cream cone image on pg.17 in the Artistry handbook out of some watercolor paper and used some watercolors to paint my cone and ice cream.  Once that dried, I used foam adhesive to add my cone to the card to help add more dimension.


I finished it off by stamping my sentiment using the CTMH Birthday Sparkles stamp set onto some vellum with some black embossing powder and that's it, nothing else to it!! I really had lots of fun creating this card, great for anyone celebrating a birthday!!


I appreciate you stopping by, thanks so much! Have a fabulous day!!

Honey Bee Stamps Design Team 2016 Entry

Happy Saturday friends! I hope your Memorial Weekend is off to a great start!

Today I am stopping by to share a few cards that I made for Honey Bee Stamps Design Team 2016 Entry! I used the "Thanks Simple Sentiments" stamp set for my cards.


I took the beautiful butterfly from the stamp set and stamped it a few times with 3 different ink colors to create my background. I then took some vellum and heat embossed my sentiment.  I kept this card very simple but love how it turned out.

I finished it off by adding some foam adhesive to my card base and my sentiment and scattered a few sequins on my card.

Before I let you go, I want to share a couple of cards that I made using this stamp set. You can find the original post HERE.


Well that is all that I have for you today! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

"You're In My Prayers" Card

Hi friends, hope that your week is going well! I wanted to stop by and share a card with you that I made for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge! You can read more about it HERE!

Here's my card!

I started off by taking the Small Stitched Rectangle Die from Lawn Fawn to cut out a rectangle from some Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock and added some Fossilized Amber Distress Ink. To add a bit of a distressing look, I took the Distress Sprayer and lightly sprayed water to pick up some color.

I then took the MFT Stitched Oval Scallop Frames and cut them out of some white cardstock and added the smallest oval straight to my card with glue and added some fun foam to my larger oval to add some nice dimension.


I carefully stamped part of my sentiment to my card using the SSS Prayers stamp set and used the coordinating die (in which I cut 5 times to glue one on top of the other) to complete it.

Scattered a few clear sequins and called it quits! 

Well I hope you liked it, thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!

Hello, Friend

Hi crafty friends!

 I wanted to stop by today and share a quick card that I made using Pretty Cute Stamps Rainbow stamp set!


I cut my frame out of some Canson Watercolor Paper using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Die set and took the 2 largest die to cut my inside panel and stamped my adorable rainbow image using some Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color in my image and some Tim Holtz Tumble Glass Distress Ink for my background. 


I added some water using the Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer ( I love this thing) to add a little of a distress look to my background and rainbow. Finished off my card my cutting a few clouds, adding the phrase Hello, Friend from the same stamp set, some foam adhesive to my frame and a cloud and finally couldn't go without adding a few sequins from The Crafty Pickle!

Well I hope you enjoyed today's card as much as I enjoyed making it, and as always thank you so much for stopping by!

Pretty Cute Stamps "Anything but a Card" Challenge

Happy Saturday friends! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Click HERE for more details and to link up your project!


Here is my take on the challenge...


I purchased this fun clear plastic tin from Hobby Lobby and stuffed a few chocolate goodies in there! I used the adorable Easter Cuties stamp set for my bunny and sentiment! 

I kept it super simple but I totally love the way it came out!


I took a scallop and circle die for the top part of the tin and stamped another sentiment using the same stamp set to add a little something to the lid!


Well that is all I have for you today! Thank you so much for stopping by and please don't be shy, stop by Pretty Cute Stamps blog to join in on the challenge!
