A Snail's Happy Place Card

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a fun card I made for this month's Waffle Flower Challenge.  I loved the colors and the flowers shown in the inspirational photo- so pretty!  They inspired me to create this:

These little snails from the Snail Mail Stamp Set are so cute!  I imagined them in a little oasis of flowers in a garden somewhere in the shade- doesn't that sound like a happy place? :)  I stamped these pretty flowers from the A Bunch Stamp Set to go along with the adorable snails.  Everything has been painted with water and residual ink from my ink pads.  When everything was dry,  I used the matching A Bunch Die and Snail Mail Die to cut everything out.  The sentiment came from the fun, new Balloon Messages Stamp Set.

After everything was cut out, I layered it on to the pink card base.  I used some foam adhesive dots to add dimension here and there.  I love how it turned out!

Pop over to the Waffle Flower Blog to check out June's challenge and a few great cards from our design team!

Well, I hope your week is off to a great start!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Neon Hi Card


Today I'm sharing a card I made for Watch It Wednesday at Waffle Flower Crafts.  I used the Jumbo Letter A-Z  Die Set to create a neon light look:

I used neon cardstock so in real life it's really bright and fun against the black background.  To a video of how it was created, pop over to the Waffle Flower Crafts Blog :)  While you're there, check out the catalog contest that is going on featuring these dies as well!

As I was editing the video I had this card sitting next to me at the desk and my daughter asked me why I made a card that said ih!  lol!  It was upside down... Goofy girl :)

Hope you have a great day!

A Blue Bird Card

Hello!  Hope your day is going well!  I just finished up my homework and have a few extra minutes until I head off to school!  I'm enjoying the sunshine on my back porch :)  Today is pretty great!

I wanted to share a card I created a little while ago.  It features the adorable bird stamps by W Plus 9.  I just love these stamps!  They remind me of one of my favorite artists, Charley Harper :)  I love his work and had to have these stamps as soon as they came out!  Here is what I made with them:

I stamped and watercolored this little scene on Stampin' Up!'s shimmer paper.  It is a nice thick cardstock and watercolor works well on it.  I love that the whole thing shimmers- it's subtle but so pretty!

This stamp set is sure to get some more use soon!  I think it is the cutest :)

Hope you have a great day!

You are my Anchor Card


How is everything with you?  Is your month as crazy as mine has been? :)  I am trying to keep up with it all but sadly my poor blog has been last in line for attention... sorry!

I had a tiny bit of time this morning and have been wanting to share the cards I made for the Waffle Flower Crafts Summer Release.  This one is simple but turned out to be one of my favorites:

Anchors are perfect for this time of year and I pulled out the new Life Anchor Stamp Set to play with first.  I made this one with my hubby in mind- it was our 15th anniversary last week :)  I stamped out the anchors with Stampin' Up! Basic Black ink onto the smooth side of some watercolor paper.  I used watercolors to paint them in and let them dry.  After they were dry, I ran them through the diecut machine with the matching Life Anchor Die to cut them out.  I added some gray twine to each of them, finishing with a knot near the anchor.  My white cardbase has been embossed using a wide stripe embossing folder.  I adhered my anchors using foam adhesive and then stamped my sentiments.  I cut a small slit in the top of the card to slide the twine through.  I adhered it inside the card.

I have been creating a bunch of fun things!  Hopefully I will find time in the next few days to share everything :)

Hope you have a great day!
