I have always known it was you

I can never get enough of my all time favorite stamp set and coordinating dies by WPus9 called Wishing You. I'm in love with these adorable bunnies! Such a crisp and clean image to stamp and cut out. So many possibilities with this set.
The sentiment was taken from the set Sending My Love by PTI.
 I sponged the background with Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar and Milled Lavender distress inks by Tim Holtz.
Thanks for taking the time to visit!

Here is my card using a digi from Power Poppy called Glittering Glass Santa. Image was colored with Copics  and Wink Of Stella was added to the berries and Santa's coat.

My Beaker Bubbles For You.

Hello friends! Well I finally got around to inking up a set I purchased from MFTs last release called Undeniable Chemistry. It also has a coordinating die that you can find here. I love the sentiments that come with this set. The background was smooshed using various inks. Also used was one of MFT's Wonky Stitched Rectangular dies.
I've entered my card into the MFT Color Challenge #38 .

Let It Snow

 I have a quick card to share with you all today. This one features an older stamp by Memory Box called Sleek Penguins. This stamp was produced way before they started making their own dies and clear stamps. The sentiment and large die cut snowflake is from the mini set by PTI called Snowflake Sparkle. Background was sponged with Tumbled Glass distress ink. Water splatters were added. It's a bit hard to see but they are there. Also used was one of the Wonky Rectangular Dies by MFT.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today!

PTI January Blog Hop ~ Happy Birthday

Good afternoon! My card today features the new Butterfly Coverplate by Papertrey Ink. The frame of the plate was cut away leaving just the butterflies. I loved the look of Nichole's card and thought I would give it a try. Other supplies used were the Double Ended Banner Die and a stamped sentiment from Confetti Toss.
Enjoy the hop!

There's some purple hues in this pic if you look closely.
I was out of teal!

Good morning! I'm back today as a guest designer with another card for the second half of Time Out Challenges with the theme 
 Birthdays with the optional Technique Twist of adding sponging.
My card today features images from the set Birthday Celebration by Simon Says Stamp. If you try to look for it I don't think they carry it anymore. The background was sponged with distress inks. After coloring the balloon and elephant with Prisma Colored Pencils, I carefully fussy cut them out. Thank god for dies! I added Wink of Stella to the balloon to give it a little shimmer. I should of added some to the party hat as well but didn't think of it at the time.
Thanks for looking!

You Are The Beat Of My Heart


For this week's Papertrey MIM we get to pick one of the weekly videos this past year that we missed or did not get a chance to play along with. I believe I participated in just about all of them so I chose

I got to use the Stitched Primitive hearts for the first time. The large heart was cut from the Nostalgic Notions paper collection and the smaller one was cut from PTI's 100% Sweet Blush felt. I stitched around both hearts and added a sentiment from Love Birds. The adorable die cut bunnies are from Wishing You by WPlus9. The heart was adhered to white cardstock that was embossed with the Center Stage Cover Plate. I trimmed the sides a bit to expose the base of the card.
Thanks for visiting!
