Do you have the Bootastic stamp set? Coordinating dies are here! No more fussy cutting and these dies will let you build an army of cute kids! I’m over at Mama Elephant blog with a card using the Bootastic Creative Cuts.
I used the cute witch from the stamp set and I die cut a window from a piece of orange cardstock. I then stamped the witch onto a piece of cardstock and coloured it with my copic markers.
I then heat embossed the sentiment in white directly onto the orange cardstock. Using some foam adhesive, I adhered the orange to my card base.
Some wood veneer stars here and there and the card is finished. I love that bold white against the orange cardstock!
Be sure to come back later this week for more inspiration!

Good morning everyone! I’m here with another Designer Series over at Mama Elephant blog. This month, ME is releasing a few coordinating Creative Cuts as well as a standalone die set.
I worked with the Index Card creative cuts today. These are dies that everyone should have in their stash and I’m sure I’ll be using them very often. For my card, I’m using the large stitched rectangle as well as the brackets to frame my focal point.
I used ink and blended the colours of her skirt. This is a good way to get a perfect gradient especially since I don’t have enough copic markers to make a seamless blend.
Ta da! Perfect gradient… all the time!
I used the sentiment from My Sunshine and stamped it right beside the little girl. To tie the “sunshine” theme with the card, I blended some orange and yellow onto the card base so they will peak through the brackets’ negatives.
I’ll be back next week for another Designer Series! Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning everyone! It’s the third day of Neat & Tangled‘s July release. We have a perfect stamp set for all those Star Wars fans out there: Time Warp and A Long Time Ago.
I heat embossed the Time Warp stamp in white onto a piece of cardstock and blended some distress ink all over the card front. I then flicked some water onto the card to create some splatters so that they would look like stars.
I stamped the simple sentiment onto a strip of white cardstock and adhered it on top of the card base with foam tape. I just can’t stop blending these distress inks :)

I’m back for Neat & Tangled second day of their July release as a guest designer this month! Danielle has an adorable set for us this month and it’s perfect for paper piecing or colouring.
You might have gotten a little sneak peak at this card a few days ago. I stamped the waves and masked a partial part of it. Then I stamped the boat on top.
I finished the panel with some machine stitching. Yup – no more hand stitching for now. I tried my hand at the sewing machine and I definitely need more practice.

Good morning! Today is an exciting day for me as Neat and Tangled reveals their first stamp set for the July release. This stamp set was drawn by me based on some of the stamp carving designs I did earlier in the year. The concept of this stamp set was to be able to decorate gifts, from gift packaging, to gift cards and gift tags.
I stamped my own pattern paper with the heart and stitched a piece of vellum die cut using A Lot to Say die. I then stamped one of the girls and the sentiment directly onto the vellum.
Thank you Danielle for making my dream come true with my own designed stamp set! I’m so excited to be able to stamp my own handwriting too :)

I’m so excited to be able to play with Simon Says Stamp‘s new release “This is the Life”! When I saw this adorable stamp set “Best Fishes”, I knew what card I wanted to make.
Yup, a shaker card. But not any normal shaker – this one is sealed with a piece of acetate on both inside and out.
That way when you open up the card, you will see the full fish tank and all the little details.
And then when you close it, the glitter shakes around :)
Ahhh… I can’t stop shaking this card!
