Polkadoodles Horace & Boo - Surprise

Today I'm sharing this adorable outdoor birthday scene starring Horace & Boo!

This Horace & Boo - Surprise polymer stamp is also available in digi form.  As you can tell by the image, I've added a whole outdoors landscape using my Prismacolor pencil crayons.  I think I'm living vicariously through my scenes.  🤣🤣

I popped up the image on the Squarey Swirly Hearts die and used papers from the the Hearts & Happiness 6" x 6" paper pack.  This pack contains such pretty subtle peaches and blues and just perfect for those spring and summer projects.

I created the the saying using the Super Sentiments collection that comes with 49 clear polymer stamps.  So easy to make up any saying for every day and occasion cards!  I added a few wooden stars that I painted with some gesso to create more of a shabby look.

Thought I would add a layer of lace topped by some peach rhinestone lace to just finish off the card.

Are you starting to creating those spring/summer/easter cards now too?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Maggie Gnome Ladybug Walk - Twistoon

When I saw this digi image created by Lisa at Twistoon I knew I had to colour her up!!

The image itself is called Maggie Gnome Ladybug Walk and I've coloured her with copics.  

Here is the original image so you can see how much of a scene I've created.  It was fun and such a super cute gnome!!!  😀 Also she's having a huge 50-70% off sale this weekend!!  😳

Hope you are all having a wonderful Easter weekend and just maybe getting in some crafty time!

MFT Hug It Out

I did share this on Facebook and Instagram but then I realized I had added my colours here so if nothing more, at least I have them documented.  LOL!

This is MFT's "Hug it Out" and OOOOOOOOOOOO this set is so stinkin' adorable I just couldn't refuse it!!  And I'm pretty sure we could all use a ton of hugs!!  I am so lucky that I actually have a hubby who gives the best hugs ever!  He's more than a head taller than me but he bends down to my height and softens right up and squeezes tight!  I never thought the day would come when I described the way my husband hugs me!!  LOL!!! 

I hope you all have a good and creative weekend!!
Sending you big, warm, squishy hugs!!

Polkadoodles Hyacinth

Hello and welcome back!!  Today I'm sharing a quick tip on how to shabby up those card edges!!  😀

I went with super bold colours on this card, more for a challenge because I wanted to see how the colours would turn out once completed.  Well, it's BOLD I'll say that.  LOL!  I printed out some papers from the Winnie Celebrations Kit 3 digi papers on PD's Ultimate Graphic 160gsm paper pack.

Not sure if you can see it but I snuck in the Delicate Daisy Corner craft cutting die into the left corner of the card and added flowers...albeit over top but you can still see it sticking out.  

I've used my copics to colour up this beauty digi called Hyacinth Darling Bud, which is also available in a clear polymer stamp.  

Aren't these Love Hearts just adorable?!!  I stamped them out onto copic paper, cut them using my Brother scan and cut then coloured them with the same combo that I used on the image.    

So my tip to create fast shabby edges is simply to use a Zutter!!  Check it out right here!  Just don't shove your paper into it because I know it's meant for heavier papers including chipboard and I've made that mistake myself.  🤣🤣🤣 

Thanks for stopping by!!  🥰

Polkadoodles Honeypie Spring Lambs

 Today I'm sharing my latest card using a new digi image from the cute Honeypie line!

This image is called Honeypie Spring Lambs (svg file included) and I coloured the image using my Prismacolor pencil crayons (listed below).  I added some extra details such as the dots on her flowers and the crosshatch design on her hat.  AND THOSE LAMBS?!!  Soooo sooo adorable!  The matching papers that I've layered are from the Vintage Candy 6" x 6" paper pad.

I thought I would add a cute little sentiment using my labeler and also cut the sentiment out using PD's Posydoodle tags.  I added some pink distress oxide ink to the chipboard hearts and topped them off with some icicle Stickles for an extra sparkle.

Hope you enjoyed my card today and if you get a moment check out the new Honeypie collection!  They are super cute!

Stamping Bella - Curvy Girl Baker

I have to say I think this is one of my personal favourites lately. 🥰  I’ve created a shaker card and added some super cute clay lady bugs with some sequins and micro silver balls for the contents.  The image is Curvy Girl Baker from Stamping Bella and I think the sentiment is just so perfect.  I can eat cake anytime…even for breakfast.  LOL!  What about you?  

The papers are Frozen Roses from Ciao Bella and such pretty papers they are!  

I decided to dress up my card photo's with just a couple of extra's from my scrapbook program.  I used an online program to take away my original background and then added the background paper, sequins and ric rac ribbon embellishments.  I just wanted to try and up the ante so to say but I hope you like it!!  Figured it would be easier than actually finding all those pieces to match each card.  LOL!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great week!

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!

Stamping Bella "Beatrice & Barbara are Besties"

When it comes to cards for my sister I really go to town.  The only problem that comes up the following year is ... "ok crap, how am I gonna top this?"  LOL!  I'm sure we've all gone through that.  Yet, every year so far I've manage to do it but I will say it is getting harder!

The stamp I used is from Stamping Bella called "Uptown Girls Beatrice and Barbara are Besties" and I used my Prismacolour pencil crayons to colour and create the rest of the scene.  This is what the image originally looked like.  

Don't they look like they're just enjoying each other but also seriously up to something?!  Such a great depiction of us!!  🤣🤣

I had this gorgeous heart in my stash so I added some berries and Wild Orchid flowers.

I've used some Laswerowe Love chipboard hearts, painted them with Tim Holtz distress paint and then covered them icicle Stickles.  

Hope you've enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Thanks for stopping by!
