Easter Gift Tags

Hi, and Happy Thursday!

Today is my day to post over at Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon. I hope everyone is doing well. 

For my project today I made two Easter Gift Tags using PPPR Bunny Conversation Cutting Files along with PPPR New Year Tag Cutting Files. After cutting out the tags I embossed them with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and went over them with some Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I did the print and cut for the bunny sentiments and added some glossy accents to the eyes. The heart buttons are super old and I added some embroidery floss to them. 
 I will also be entering this project into the Die Cuttin Divas Button Challenge going on now HERE.


Also we have a Spring Break Challenge going on now till Saturday, April 2nd, 2016.  For more info and to link up click HERE.

Happy Birthday love

Hi crafty friend!

If you're looking for the Pretty Cute Stamps post please click HERE.

Just wanted to stop by to share a card I made to play along with a sketch challenge over at Paper Play Sketches HERE (but I was late to the link up). I will be adding it the card challenge over at Paper Issues on Facebook and PDE Linky Party: Always Anything Goes


The banner is from MCT 4X4 Journal die + more set and I also used MCT Fun Stitched Edges die set. For the sentiment I used Snarky Stamps Freaking sentiments set and the heart is from Snarky Stamps Dude sentiments set. The Mickey and Minnie sticker is so old that it was hard to stick it down. I used a EK Mickey punch for the little Mikey heads.

Thank you for stopping by today.










Hoppy Easter


Hi crafty friend! 
 I hope everyone is doing well.

I would like to share an Easter card I made for my post over at Pretty Cute Stamps blog. I will also be entering this card in the mood board challenge over at Paper Issues on Facebook and at PDE Linky Party: Always Anything Goes
For this card I used the Pretty Cute Stamps Hoppy Easter stamp set and colored it in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Color Markers. For the sky and grass background I used Tim Holtz distress inks.
After stamping the image I covered it with molotow masking liquid and than added the blue ink for the sky followed with green for the grass. Once I had the background they way I wanted it I rubbed off the masking liquid.

Hey Girl

Hi, and Happy Thursday!

Today is my day to post over at Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon. I hope everyone is doing well. 

For my project today I made a coffee theme card using the PPPR Java Great Day Cutting Files. Love that face on the coffee cup and I'm sure it's going to put a smile on the face of the person receiving this card. The embossing folder is a Sizzix Tim Holtz folder and after embossing it I went over it with Tim Holtz sanding block tool. The hey GIRL I punched out from a sheet of printed paper and the post card paper is also from a printed paper. The perfect sentiment is from Pretty Cute Stamps Coffee Sentiments as well as the coffee beans.
