*WINNER HAS BEEN CHOSEN, NOTIFIED, AND HAS CLAIMED PRIZE*

Thank you to all that entered!

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I have the pleasure of participating in Spellbinders March Clubs Blog Hop.  I created a card using the March Card Kit of the Month, Feeling Hoppy.  Spellbinders kits are jammed packed with adorable goodies, and this month was no exception.  It is full of sweet Easter and spring themed items for your card making needs.  You can find their kits here.

Now, if you watch my 5 or 10 card videos each month showcasing the current Spellbinders card kit, you know that I have an obsession with ephemera.  The Spellbinders kits are full of glorious ephemera and I just can’t help myself, and typically make all my cards with the ephemera.  For today’s card I thought I would incorporate more of the stamp set (and a couple ephemera pieces – I just couldn’t help myself!).  To see how I created this card, you can check out the video below, but don’t forget to hop along to win!

Blog Hops, Christmas, scrapping for less

Scrapping for Less | November 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit | A Vintage Christmas

75642444_10157947659178615_7319330562575958016_o

Hello!  I am guest designing this month for Scrapping for Less and I am happy to show you the November Flavor of the Month card kit, A Vintage Christmas.

Below are two pictures of two varieties of the kit you can choose from.  There is the Banana Split and Double Dip Sundae.

76936395_10157952746633615_4425657082028490752_o

Today I am showcasing the Banana Split kit.  I made 5 cards using many elements that came in the kit.  Although I just made 5 cards, the kit has plenty to make many more.

20191125_230725

The first card I made using these adorable bell stamps from Scrapping for Less.  So easy to color and they make a nice focal point on your card.

20191125_230822

I’m all about ephemera, so for my second card I had to use the ephemera pieces that came in the kit.  I used the largest button and accented it with some red twine from the kit.

20191126_144407

For my third card I used the stamp set from Sunny Studio.  I colored the house to coordinate with the colors on the pattern paper.

20191125_230815

On my fourth card I used the Noel die.  To get this die in your kit, you will need to order the banana split option.  I cut it out from gold mirror card stock from my stash to make it pop and paired it with the lovely pattern paper in the kit!  It is a really pretty die!

20191125_230828

Finally, my favorite card was made using this sweet little Santa stamp from Your Next Stamp.  This Santa was an awesome image to color.

Blog Hops, Not 2 Shabby

Not 2 Shabby & Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop | Digital Stamp | Not2Shabby Better with a Friend

Collab Graphic N2S & CLP (3)

20191118_202555

Hello!  Welcome to my blog where I have the privilege of participating in a collaboration blog hop between Not2Shabby and Coffee Loving Cardmakers.

Today I am featuring a digital stamp from the Not2Shabby Shop called, Better with a Friend.  I printed the image out on my laser printer onto some Bristol Vellum card stock.  I printed the image at 26% scale and I think it came out the perfect size.

I then colored the image using my PrismaColors and added a little highlight with a white jelly roll pen.  I don’t usually gravitate towards digital stamps, but I have to say this one was a breeze to print and color.  I love how Jamie drew this image and I’m safe to bet most people would think this is a stamped image.

So now to the fun part!  The giveaway!!  I have included links and details of the giveaway below.  There is also a process video on my YouTube channel of how I put this card together.  Enjoy and good luck!

Let’s get on to some crafty goodness with these wonderful creatures: Our Myths and Legends blog hop begins at the Scrapping for Less blog. There, you will find the complete lineup. AND…make sure you enter the Rafflecopter. You can find the new kit for May on the Subscription page as well as great photographs of the contents of the kit.

Happy Crafting! P.S. for some fun facts on the elements and origins of the myths and legends of this month’s kit head to the Scrapping for Less blog for some little tidbits about our legendary elements.

***********************************************

Hello! Today I am featuring 5 cards from the Scrapping for Less May card kit.  Now if you follow me on YouTube and/or Instagram, you know I just had carpal tunnel release surgery on my right hand.  When I agreed to work with the Scrapping for Less kit at the beginning of this year, I didn’t know it would be at the same time of my surgery.  That being said instead of making my usual 10 cards, I had to settle for 5, and I made the 5 cards with one hand!  This was challenging and interesting to say the least, especially since I am right handed.  So, please forgive any crooked cut lines as that is what I had the most trouble with.  Otherwise I kept my cards fairly simple and really enjoyed working with the kit.

I do have an unboxing video posted HERE (will open in new window) if you want to check out what comes in the kit.  I will have my 5 cards 1 kit video posted soon (if not already by the time you read this) to my YouTube channel, so make sure you head on over there and subscribe so you don’t miss that video and future videos.

Below you will find pictures of the cards I created. Thank you to Scrapping for Less for letting me work with your kit this month.  It was a lot of fun and I just love the theme!  Hope you all enjoy my cards!

Don’t forget to participate in the blog hop.

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2018| Fall/Winter

Coffee-Lovers-Blog-Hop-10

One of my favorite times of year as a card maker is being able to participate in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  It’s the same routine each time where I go through my stamp inventory and pull all my coffee stamps I have yet to use.  The chosen one this time around was Penny Black’s Saying a Latte.  I so love this girl and knew right away what I wanted to do.

Paper piecing was on the brain and I immediately decided that her shirt should be paper pieced with some holiday patterned paper.  Once I got started, I thought, hmm well tank tops really don’t go with winter, but maybe she is in her house by the fireplace?? Maybe??  We are going with that!

DSCN1324

I colored her with Copic markers after paper piecing her tank top, then used a Lawn Fawn stamp set for the sentiment.  The patterned paper I used for the circle and the background paper all come from the same pack.  Added some gold enamel dots and called her done!
