Simple Stories Bunnies & Blooms Collection

Are you anxious for spring to arrive? I know I am! The snow is beautiful, but I’ve about had my fill of shoveling and the freezing temps these past few weeks. The Simple Stories Bunnies & Blooms Collection is a sweet escape to warmer days and time spent in the garden.
My cards start with pattern paper layers using the 6x8” pad available in this collection. The pad size and smaller prints are ideal for card making. One 6x8” sheet cut in half will cover two A2 (4.25 x 5.5”) card fronts. The pad even includes cut apart sheets of 3x4” journaling cards for quick cards and tags.
The collection includes printed die cut Bits & Pieces as well as Journaling Bits and Pieces with sentiments and spaces for adding your own personal handwritten note. This time I used the Chipboard images with the Journaling Bits and Pieces to create my cards. The Chipboard has adhesive backing and adds dimension to your projects.
The images are all Springtime! You’ll find garden sheers, trowels, seed packs and watering cans. Of course birds, blooms and bunnies are included for your garden scenes.
It’s all sunshine and rainbows after the spring showers make flowers. I’m smitten with the sweet butterflies and pastel colors in this beautiful collection.
How fun is this checklist? Got Spring? Butterflies? Check! Flowers? Check! Rain Boots and Easter Baskets? This collection has you covered!
Take a sweet spring escape with the Simple Stories Bunnies & Blooms Collection! You’ll be glad you did!

Waffle Flower Rose Bouquet

Thanks for stopping by! Today I'm sending you a heart bouquet of ROSES using a fun stamp and stencil combo set from Waffle Flower.
First you stencil the background heart, and then you stamp the detailed roses. A coordinating die set makes it easy to cut your stencil/stamp image. The stamp set also includes a bow, and a pot with some foliage you can color and add to your design if you like.
The stamp set also includes the sentiment "You are Loved" that I stamped on a Scalloped Circle die cut. If you look close you'll see the pretty pierced design that reminds me of a pretty doily. The Scalloped Circle die cut set includes 5 nested circles perfect for layering.
The pattern papers I used are also from Waffle Flower. These are from the Christmas Dots and Lines Pads but they look great all year round. I love that the sheets are thick enough to be folded in half to create an A2 size card base. If you cut one sheet in half it will cover two card fronts and the colors are coordinated to work together.
I'm entering my card at Double D Challenges where they're looking for cards that include a heart in their design. Better hurry if you want to play.. there's only a few days left!
February is for hearts and Valentines but I think we all need a little love each and every day!

Hello Darling!


Hello Darlings! I hope you're having a fabulous day! Today I'm sharing a card made with the Pretty Little Studio Miss Sadie Rose Collection. This collection is a nostalgic look at classic 60's style when fashion icons and trendsetters appreciated the minimal, modern, and ladylike look with matching accessories like pillbox hats and handbags.
The colors are soft and feminine with a touch of black thrown in for lots of drama. I'm smitten with the beautiful roses in the collection that are total eye candy.
My card starts with a background of pattern paper topped with a Patchwork Journaling Card. I embellished the card with die cut Rose Garden blooms adhered with adhesive foam tape for dimension.
The "hello darling" sentiment and stitches are actually clear stickers available in this collection. I love that they allow the patterns underneath them to show through.
Everything I make has to have just a little bit of bling. I added some blue sequins for jus tthe right amount of sparkle and shine.
Have a great day!

It's a Good Day!

Hi Friends! I hope you're having a great day! I'm in need of a little pick me up so I made a happy card with bright citrus colors to share today.  I'm joining along at Hand Stamped Sentiments because they have this amazing inspiration photo this time!
So grab your favorite cacti set and lets get stamping!
I started by stamping the Multi Step Cacti. The layers are easy to stamp and line up. The pots were colored with Copic markers, and all of the images were cut with the coordinating Multi Step Cacti Confetti Cuts.
I used the Elemental Stripes stamp set to create a "Southwest" style background for the beautiful cacti. A stamping tool makes the borders easy to space and to achieve clean inky coverage on the solid stamped images.
The sweet message is from the Sentimental Sayings stamp set. It includes lots of sentiments sure to make you smile. I love the mixed fonts that give them a fun look perfect for any occasion.
I hope this sunny card finds you smiling! Keep looking up and always happy thoughts!
