Winnie Sunshine Delight Bouquet

Welcome back!!  Today I'm going to show a behind the scenes look at my card.

I feel like I'm pulling back the curtain in the Wizard of Oz!  🤣🤣 I started by printing out my papers from the Winnie Sunshine Delights Paper Pack 1 download using the Ultimate Smooth paper.  I know I rant and rave about this paper every time but honestly it's amazing!  I love it!!  I cut my layers using a round die for the very bottom of the card and then I added 3 layers of ribbon from my stash.  

Next I created a shaker element using the Timeless Rose Sweethearts stencil, covered with some bubble gum glitter gel and then added all my shaker contents. 

I've used the black and white digi Winnie Sunshine Delight Bouquet and coloured her using my copics.  This image is also available as a pre-coloured if you'd like to save some time and make a quick card!  I cut the image into an oval shape so it would fit perfectly in the Elegant Nest set of 3.

After all was layered up I added all my extra's and TA-DA!  Done!  I wish it was as quick and easy as TA-DA sounds like.  🤣🤣 It does take me awhile to create these cards but I love the process as I don't think about anything else but what I'm creating.  Great escape!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sunshine Delights Cheeky

Hi there!!  Today I'm sharing a cutie patootie Winnie image that I popped on a nice circular shaped card.  

I've used this super sweet black and white digi image Sunshine Delights Cheeky which is also available as a pre-coloured image and used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut her out.  No way could I actually fussy cut anything this well.  LOL!  I added some details to her dress by using the darkest copic color in my combo and although it's not much, it does make difference.  My combo's are listed below.  😀

I used the Sentimentals 6" x 6" paper pack before and I LOVE it!  There are so many useable sentiments that you can share on your cards and suitable for lots of occasions.

Here I've added some Wild Orchid Flowers and some extra embellishments I found on Ebay awhile ago.  Don't you just love the little blue mushroom?  I've been wanting to use that forever!  Sometimes I but something and then later almost have to build my card around the silly little thing.  LOL!  Have you ever done that?

The Ultimate Graphic paper is the absolute BEST for printing PD papers and allows you to skip any edits you might think you need.  The papers I've used are Winnie Sunshine Delights Paper Pack 2 digi and an absolute great selection!!  Another favorite of mine!!   

Love these Winnie images!  Do you manage to snag some Digi ChoosedayENABLER ALERT!   Check out the link as there is always a challenge going and on Tuesday a fabulous discount!!  🤣🤣🤣🤣

I hope you're keeping well in these unknown times.  I thank goodness I have my crafting.  Keeps me sane ... kinda.  ha ha ha ha!! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Heart Slimline Cutting File Giveaway

Hi everyone!   Today I have a FREE cutting file give away for all you Silhouette users!

I'm just loving these slimline cards and dies but I have to admit they can be a little pricey so I thought how easy would it be to create one on my Silhouette?  
So today I'm sharing an svg file for this design free for you to download for Silhouette Studio.  You can either use all the pieces in the file or you can cut the following layers and then cut just the 3-heart layer only.  


Cut your base piece to 8 1/2" x 7" and then scored it at 3 1/2".Your 2nd layer will measure 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" and for my design I used a piece from the "Winnie Sunshine Delights" 6" x 6" Paper digi pack.  If you go this route, you only have the heart layer left to cut using your Silhouette.

You can also add your favourite digi stamps to your mat at this point and cut out the digi to save hand cutting later! Bonus! 

I created mine into a shaker card and covered my middle heart with my digi image. 

The image is a digi called "Snowman Frosty Hugs Too Cute".  

It comes pre-coloured and both come with svg files in case you'd like to print and cut using your Silhouette.  
You can check here for the video tutorial on how to do that.  

This whole line are images that can be used not only for Christmas cards but once again I've used one to create a Valentine's card.  😀💖

I've coloured my image using copics and listed them below.  I added some stitches to her scarf and some dots to his using a .25mm fine tip pen.  I would suggest adding these AFTER you colour your image or letting it completely dry once you've done your additions.

I coloured the extra chipboard hearts using distress inks and then covered them off with Stickles.  There's just something about adding glitter to winter cards.  For my final addition I've adhered some roses to each of the hearts.

I hope you get some use out of the cutting file!  

Thanks for stopping by!
Sending warm hugs,

MFT - Polar Bear Pals

Helllloooooo out there!!  I made this card awhile ago but never did give it away yet so YAY for me!!  Stash for next xmas!  LOL!!  I used the super cute set from MFT called "Polar Bear Pals" and coloured them using my copics.

I've created the scene by adding Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Mountain" border die and the slimline die from Honey Bee stamps called "Honey Cuts".  The chipped sapphire and dusty concord distress inks were the only colours I've used for my water scene and then did some "splats".  OH and the cute ice they are floating on are dies from MFT's "Grounding Elements".

I'm entering my card into MFT's "Slimline" challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Hello Frosty Snowman

Today I have a shaker to share using Hello Frosty Snowman digi from the new Too Cute Frosty Smiles collection.  

Since this is a digi you could also grab the pre-coloured image and BONUS, they come with an SVG file!  What I love about this collection is that some of them can serve double duty purposes as to me, this one looks like a Valentine's card cuz if you're like us, we still have snow in February!   I cut the circles for the shaker using the Posydoodles - Circles die set and filled it with some fun hearts, stars and sprinkles.

I have cut a total of 6 tags with most being papers from the Timeless Rose paper pad.  I also added a sentiment from the Sentimentals 6 x 6 paper pad, which is filled with multiple various sayings and handy for lots of different themes.  I even used a tag from the Posydoodles Basics Tags set.  My fav!!!!  😀 You can see in this photo where each layer is and I've even popped up a few of them using foam dots.

And a pic of my usual bouquets filled with a shabby chic ribbon, a twine box, and amazing gem and  some Wild Orchid flowers.

What kind of cards are you working on now?  Valentine's or are you starting with Christmas cards again?  I'm doing both!  I love this hobby!!  😀💕

Hello Bluebird - Feed the Birds

I needed a few thank you cards so figured I would start by playing with some new stamps I got from Hello Bluebird.  Well ... new to me because they are from the late November release but I just received them about a week ago.'s so hard to have patience when you're waiting for something so super cute!!  LOL!!

I started out with the "Big Mountain" scene die, laid down some distress inks, spritzed some water and then added some white paint splats to make the background. 

The set I've used is "Feed the Birds" and I'm looking forward to trying the girl image in another scene like maybe fall because even in fall, we can get some pretty frigid weather here.  

I've listed the copic combo's I've used below and even tho this looks like a simple card, it always amazes me how much time I spend on them.  I think it's the decision making process that slows me down but it's the process that I love so much.  

I know it's definitely a different kind of style for me but I'm really enjoying it.  I hope you have too!
