Ribbon & Enamel Dot Technique Cuteness

Hey lovlies!!
Today I am sharing two cute techniques for using ribbon and enamel dots. I love how this card turned out, it makes me think of swimming and the beach. For this card I used Lawnfawn stamps. The sets that I used to make this card are: Fintastic Friends, Critters In The Sea, Love N'Breakfast (for the cute bow), Our Friendship Grows, and Critters Ever After. The dies that I used for this card are the Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave Borders, and the Large Stitched Rectangles Stackables.
For the fun enamel dot technique I scattered sparkly enamel dots along the bottom of the card to look like sand at the bottom of the ocean. The enamel dots that I used were from various Doodlebug packs. The new Doodlebug enamel dots have glitter in them, and they are so cute. For the ribbon technqiue I used some blue polka dot American Crafts ribbon and I just twisted and adhered it on the card. I think it looks so cute and whimsical. It really gives the card some cute dimension and makes the little sea critters look like they are swimming through the water. I copic coloured these cute stamped images. For the copics I used, B00, B0000, BV02, BV00, R20, RV02, RV04, RV06, Y21, Y32, G40, YG06, G05, E13, E15, and E18. I hope you enjoyed these fun little techniques. Thanks for stopping by my blog! xo

Coffee Lovers MyStyleStamps Design Team Post

Goodmorning lovlies!
Just wanted to share my design team project for this week with you. This week I used my favourite MyStyleStamps stamp set 'Coffee Lovers'. I cannot get enough of this cute coffee cup. I collect the Christmas Starbucks travel mugs and I just had to paper piece this adorable cup to look like their latest gold polka dot mug. Here is a picture of their polka dot Christmas mug from this past Christmas! The gold and polka dots.. swoon!
And what is coffee without some adorable donuts. The donuts used in this shaker card are from Taylored Expressions 'Donut' die. It is really really tiny, which is perfect to put in your critters hands or for SHAKER CARDS! :) I also used the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables die from Lawn Fawn as well as the Ocean Wave Borders die to make the cute scallop. I used Doodlebug twine and a cute button. The sentiment "Coffee Create Sleep Repeat" is from the 'Coffee Lovers' MyStyleStamps set. The pretty sequins are also from My Style Stamps, they are the Bahama Blue sequins.
Here is where you can find this cute stamp set: Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and I have you have a lovely day! xo

More Waffle Flower Cuteness with Willy & Friends Stamp Set

Goodmorning lovlies!
So as promised I am back with more Waffle Flower cuteness from their stamp set "Willy & Friends" today. I had so much fun with this stamp set already and it just has so much potential. I love the versitilty and huge array of cuteness it offers. It is a must buy! Definitely one of my top 5 stamp sets in my collection! Here is another cute card that I made with it! I am loving this cute pineapple in the set, it has hearts on it! So my inspiration for this set was that I wanted to make a pineapple shaker card. I have been having a ton of fun with my new dies so I wanted to try using one of the Lawn Fawn large stitched rectangles to make a shaker. The paper that I used was from the Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine collection.
Copics were a must for this cutness! I had a ton of fun colouring up these cute images. The colours that I used are shown above. For the pineapple stems I used G05 and YG06. For the base of the pineapple I used Y38 and Y35. The monkey was so fun to colour. For face and tummy I used E55 and E53. For his body I used W3 and W1. His little bow tie was coloured using BG11. I left alittle bit of white on the bow, which is a technique I saw on the Waffleflower Youtube channel. They show super cute copic colouring techniques on their stamps. The pink bows on the pineapples I used Rv02 and Rv04.
Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving comments! I love reading them! I will include the link below for where you can pick up this cute stamp set. I hope you all have an awesome day! xo http//

My First Waffle Flower Stamp Set & Card Share

Goodmorning lovlies!!
EKK I got happy mail yesterday from SimonSaysStamp. I ordered this super cute Waffle Flower "Willy & Friends" stamp set. And oh my goshhh, it is soooo stinking cute!! I had so much fun all evening creating cards with this set. It is definitely one of my favourite stamp sets that I own. I have already made two cards with it and I will definitely be making alot more soon. So here is my first card that I created using this adorable set. I will feature the other card shown in this picture tomorrow with all of the products used.
So here is my card that I created. I don't think that I mentioned it before, but I used to take dance for many years. So when I saw the sentiment "Dance like no one is watching" I was thrilled!!! EKKK I love this quote, it is one of my favourites. I had to make my first card centered around a dance theme!! This card would be super cute as a birthday, or thinking of you card! I just love it! Naturally I had to use a ton of pink on this card. I also thought it would be cute to use my Recollections pink fabric ribbon that I have been hording... I thought it looked like a little ballet tutu. This card would also be super cute with some tulle sticking out under the polaroid frame. And YES my Lawn Fawn dies make another apperance. I used the Say Cheese cordinating polorid die and also the stitched rectangle die. The paper that I used is from the Recollections Hot Buy paper pad Peppy Preppy. I filled the shaker with a TON of sequins. Some of them are from Pretty Pink Posh ( the pink and white flowers) and the rest are just sequins from the Dollar Tree. The pink pearl embellishments are from Doodlebug Baby Girl Collection.
I of course had to use my copics to colour up this cutie (I believe this monkeys name is Clair). The copics I used are pictuted above. I used RV02 to colour in the hearts, bows, and Clairs skirt. To colour in Clairs face and belly I used E53 and E55. To colour in Clairs body I used E55 and E57. I just love how she turned out. I cannot wait to paper piece this little cute monkey and the other in this set in some upcoming cards.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! Don't foget to check back tomorrow for another cute card using this Waffle Flower "Willy & Friends" stamp set. Here is the direct link where you can find this set. xo

MyStyleStamps Design Team Post ~Anniversary Card (Coffee Lovers)

Goodmorning lovlies!
I just wanted to share my design team post with you. This past week was my fifth wedding anniversary and I wanted to make my husband a cute card. So I used the MyStyleStamps Coffee Lovers stamp set to make this card. I paper pieced the iced coffee cups. The paper that I used is from the Doodlebug 'The Graduates' collection. It's a really nice masculine set. I also used paper from the new Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine collection. The rhinestones are from the Michaels Recollection collection. The super cute glitter bows are made using the Paper Smooches 'Baby Bow' die. To make the whip cream I used Rangers liquid pearl and it looks so cute with the puffiness. On top of the whipped cream I used MyStyleStamps Raspberry sequins. These sequins are an amazing deal, the packs sell for $1 and you get a ton in the pack. Definitely go check out the nice selection of sequins that they offer.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and I hope you have an amazing day. Xo

You + Me = Love

Goodmorning Lovlies! So as promised I am back today with another adorable card!! EKK these dies are just so fun to create cards with. I have to admit I HAVE been missing out. What was I waiting for??.. I'm not sure! lol But better late then never!! I had so much fun making Sundays card that I actually made two similar cards, so I am back today to share my other nerdy birds ice cream cuteness!! I used the same stamps as Sunday but used two of my other new dies. The stamp sets that I used were Lawn Fawn Here's The Scoop, Treat Yourself ( from their newest release), and Science of Love. The dies that I used for this card are the grassy border dies and the puffy cloud border dies (which is from their new release). I had so much fun layering these cute stamps and borders. That is why I had to make TWO cards. I literally could not decide which one I liked better. I love them both!! :)
For the copic colours I used the same copic colour selection as my other card. The little blue bird is coloured up using BG10 and BG45. The cute pink bird I coloured using RV02 and RV04. For both birds I used the darkest colour to add some dots on their bellies, as well as adding some R20 on their cheeks. I used my white gel pen on their cheeks and tummies as well. The milkshake is coloured up the same as Sundays card as well, using BG10, BG45, RV02, and RV04. The yellow ice cream tub I coloured up in Y11, Y13, RV02 and RV04. The mint tub I coloured up in G12, G02, E57, and E59. The hearts I just used RV02 andY11. Of course I had to use some wink of stella to give my card a little sparkle. The cardstock I used is by American Crafts and the sentiment You+Me=Love is from the Science of Love stamp set. EKK I just love how this card came out. Makes me think of summer and sweet treats!! SO which card was your favourite? The You Melt My Heart or You+Me=Love? I hope you enjoyed this post, please follow for more inspiration and leave comments (I LOVE hearing from you!) and thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a lovely day! xo

Sparkle & Shine Lawnscaping Challenge Entry

Goodmorning lovelies!
I just wanted to share with you my entry for the current Lawnfawn Lawnscaping Challenge. The challenge right now is to create a card using sparkle and shine. You guys know that is right up my alley. I was so excited to participate. So here is my entry:
For my card I used the Lawnfawn stamp sets 'Happy Wedding' and Scripty Sayings'. I thought it would be fun to try using the happy wedding set for a birthday card. This past week my husband and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary, so I was totally inspired by our wedding colours (hot pink and black) and of course sparkle. I masked the hearts out of the wedding cake and used the super cute bouquet pattern to fill in the cake. I tried to make the cake have a fondant look. The bow came from the same wedding set and is the bow on top of the wedding bells. I just cut out the bow and it is the topper on my cake. the sentiment 'happy birthday' is from the Scripty sayings set. I also used my new dies for this card. I used the Lawnfawn large stitched rectangles die and the coordinating die for the say cheese stamp set for my shaker portion. I filled the polaroid with tons of sequins and added some Recollections bling to the card as well. Of course I had to use diamond stickles on the bow and lots of wink of Stella on the cake. The paper that I used is from the Pebbles collection Birthday Wishes.
I also used my copics to colour up the birthday cake. The pink colours that I used were some of my favourites, Rv02, RV55, RV04, FRV1, RV06 and Rv17. I just love how my card came out. I hope that some of you will head over and check out the challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day. Xo

EKK Exciting News *My First Design Team Post*

Goodmorning Lovlies!!
EKKK Sooo I have some super exciting news to share!!! I have been chosen for the My Style Stamps Design Team!! EEEE I am so incredibly honoured and excited to be working along side the other talented ladies on this design team. Thank you so much Nicole!! I am so excited to share lots of inspiration and ideas using these stamps.
So here is my very first design team project for My Style Stamps!! Who doesn't love coffee?! I am so excited with how this turned out. I wasn't sure if the coffee beans would work in the shaker card, but they did and my card even smells like coffee! :)
To make my card I used the My Style Stamps Coffee Lovers set. This is by far my favourite MyStyleStamps set. It is so cute and there is so much you can do with it. I paper pieced the coffee cup and stamped the sentiment using this set. I also used my new stitched rectangle and polaroid dies, which I have been having so much fun using. And of course I added real coffee beans inside the poloroid. The papers that I used are from the Simple Stories Snap Color Vibe collection and also the Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather collection.
The colour combo that I used was totally inspired by this weeks MyStyleStamps Color Challenge. I have been loving these color challenges. These really help me to get inspired when working on my projects and help me use colours I wouldn't normally pick or mix together. LOVE the inspiration! I hope some of you will play along with the challenge!! You can find the stamp set I used at Hope you enjoyed the card and have a lovely day! xo

My Very First Shaker Cards Share (Featuring YourNextStamp)

Goodmorning lovlies!
I have been busy crafting lots of cutness and I wanted to share two cards that I made! I created my very first shaker cards and I'm in love with them. I can totally see myself becoming shaker card addicted! I created both of these cards using stamps from another one of my favourite stamp companies Your Next Stamp. As many of you know, this company is a Canadian based company, which makes me love them even more. They have the cutest stamps and I have been loving all of their releases! I will include the link below for their site, definitely sign up for their emails because they often share coupon codes. I have had a wonderful experience with their company and will definitely be buying lots of stamps from them in the future.
So here is my first card that I created! I made this card using the stamp set Bunny In The River. I just love the sweet little critters on this set. I copic coloured this image and paper pieced the sweet umbrella and little ribbon. I used wink of stella on the ribbon, which just added a sweet little shimmer of glitter. I used Doodlebug twine in the swimming pool (blue) colour. I created the circle using my 21/2" circle punch and filled it with tons of sequins. I will share how I created this shaker in an upcoming post. But for now I just wanted to share my card.
Here is a picture of the Copic colours that I used!! To colour up the sweet little bunny I used C2 and C4. This is my favourite grey colour combo, these colours blend so nicely. The little chick was coloured using Y21 and Y35 for his body and YR02 and YR04 for his little beak. The water was coloured using B00 and B12. I also used R20 to colour in the little critters cheeks and gave them little dots with my white gel pen.
Here is my second shaker card that I created! I just love how this one looks so cute and colourful. I made this card using the stamp set Plant Some Kindness and Oh Deer. I have to say of all of my stamp sets that have deers on them, this one is my absolute favourite. That deer was sooo fun to colour and he is a perfect size. I just love the sweet little hearts on his bum and the little flower behind his ear. Such a sweet image, a keeper for sure! I copic coloured the flowers and deers and I used Pretty Pink Posh sequins for the shaker pocket. The twine that I used is the bubblegum (pink) by Doodlebug. The paper that I used for this card was from the Doodlebug Hello Spring paper pad. This card is the perfect thinking of you card! :)
Here is a picture of the Copic colours that I used! To colour up the sweet deer I used E53 and E55 for the light coloured portion. For the darker part of the deer I used E57 and E59. These colours are another favourite of mine. I used R20 for the deers cheeks as well as adding alittle white dot with my gel pen. Those sweet little flowers were so fun to colour up. I actually cut off the stem portion of the stamp and just wanted the little flower. I used FY1 to colour the inside of the flowers and RV02 and V06 for the petals. The little butterfly was coloured using FV2 and V06. I hope you enjoyed this little share of my latest card creations. Please leave me comments, I love hearing from you. And follow for lots more fun inspiration. You can find these cute stamps at I hope you all have an amazing day! xo
