100% Fabulous!

Hello and welcome!!

I've made a clean & simple card featuring an adorable unicorn.

I stamped all the elements to create a little scene and colored them with colored pencils. I applied Wink of Stella to add a bit of sparkle to my unicorn's wing and wand.

Finally I die cut the frame (twice) using turquoise cardstock and glue it to my card front to frame my cute little scene.

Here's my card...

Tremendous Triangles

Hello and welcome!!

For today's post I'm sharing a clean & simple holiday card, featuring geometrics shapes and non- traditional holiday colors.

I've used a stamp set from Whimsy Stamps called Tremendous Triangles, it has three different sizes of triangles and I've used the smallest ones to create my holiday trees. I stamped them using dye inks and then I used Distress inks for the splatters. The sentiment was stamped using gray ink.

I just love these colors and how this card turned out. Hope you like it too!

Here's my card...

Have a Screaming Good Time!


Hello and welcome!!

This time I'm sharing a fun and colorful birthday card with cute monsters from Your Next Stamp.

First, I stamped all the images and colored them using my colored pencils.

Then, I die cut the circles and ink sponged them using Distress Inks and glued them to the card base and trimmed off the excess.

After that, I heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder and then attached it with foam adhesive. Finally, I glued the monsters and added googly eyes to the bottom rigth monster.

I LOVE this card so much, it makes me smile!!

Here's my card...

Party Til The Cows Come Home

Hello and welcome!

Today I'm sharing a one-layer birthday card. I made this card for my sister in-law. She loves cows, so every year I make her a cow themed card.

First, I stamped the cow in the middle and masked it. Then, I stamped the other two cows and masked them. After that, I ink sponged the background using distress inks. Finally, I colored the cute cows and stamped the sentiment with red ink.

Here's my card...

Happy Easter!

Hello and welcome!!

I'm back with another Easter card. This time I've used a stamp set from Papertrey Ink called So Sweet. It really is a sweet set and the bunny is the cutest. So, I had to use it on my card.

First, I stamped the bunny with white pigment ink. The nose, cheeks, whiskers, and sentiment were stamped using Archival inks. To finish off my card, I've added a twine bow and glued wiggle eyes.

Here's my card...
