Messy Monkey Sketch

A fun sketch by Jacquie at Freshly Made Sketches that has endless possibilities!


I used Reverse Confetti’s adorable new “Crafty Critters” stamps and Confetti Cuts for my card...


I colored this funny monkey and his crafty supplies with Zig Clean Color and Tombow markers and a wet paintbrush. The splatters were made with stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps and WPlus9 Studio that I had in my stash.


Added some white Nuvo Drop “glue” and some Sakura Stardust pen accents, and  Stickles here and there, because really...what monkey would leave out glitter when crafting?! Such a fun card to make this snowy Monday. Thanks for stopping by!

Special Delivery Throwdown

A card for this week’s The Color Throwdown Challenge of navy, mustard, and teal!

https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1BSDK33GR_uI3J_fWKo2cFOZwUWNlPEQd

I used Waffle Flowers’ sweet new “Special Delivery” stamp set, which I sponged then stamped with Distress Oxide Inks in Mustard Seed, Pine Needles, Peacock Feathers, Fossilized Amber, and Fresh Ink in Navy.



I added a bit of water to blend some mistakes but liked the final result 😁. Added some flowers to my window card which I cut using a Nestabilities and Stitched Rectangle die.
Thanks for stopping by!

Flurries of Fun

Another entry for The Library Challenge #49. I am always inspired by book covers, so this is the perfect challenge for me. This time, I chose the cover of “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse” by Susanna Davidson.

I changed my scene to a winter one, and used Hello Bluebird’s “Treehouse Scene” die and the “Frosty Littles” stamps and dies.

How cute is that little door that opens?! I figured if little mice can live in a treehouse, why not a snowman? He just keeps the air conditioning set to super frosty all year! 🤣

The Library Challenge! #49

Playing along with my first challenge at The Library Challenge, where each week you get to be inspired by a book cover,  title, or story. How cool! This week, the challenge was entitled Anthology, and you got to choose any of this year’s covers (or last year’s, too). I was inspired by the cover of “The Note” by Zoë Folbigg.

I used The Greetery”s “Christmas Care-A-Van” set, the “Hand-Drawn Heart” die from The Stamp Market, “Happy Pretty Panels” from Reverse Confetti, and “Headline Numbers” die from Papertrey Ink for my scene.

Please excuse my post as I broke my tablet screen and am trying from my new phone for the first time and I’m trying to figure out how to add an edited photo 🤣!

25 Days of Christmas Tags- Day 16...my 26th and final TAG!!

My 26th and FINAL TAG for Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags! On Day 21, Tracey featured inspiration from Lawn Fawn! I am a big fan of Francesca Vignoli's sweet style and was inspired by her sparkling pastel unicorn tag!


I used the robot from Lawn Fawn's set with Chibitronics called "Charge Me Up" and paired him with mini lights and a sentiment from Hello Bluebird. The top of the tag was made with a snow stencil and white texture paste. The robot was stamped with clear ink and embossed in silver.


The robot was colored with Zig Clear Color markers and a waterbrush, then covered with Wink of Stella pen glitter. The lights were cut from colored card stock then coated with Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter. The light string was cut from silver card stock. The snowflakes came from Lawn Fawn's limited edition " Snow Bunnies" set created for Simon Says Stamps' Stamptember.

Thanks SO much to Tracey, her designers and ALL of the companies and Design Team members for putting on a fabulous tag show for us! It's been so inspirational  and fun! Also, a thank you to all who visited my blog and left such sweet comments ❤!

25 Days of Christmas Tags- Day 24

Day 24 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags featured design by Heffy Doodle! I was inspired by Cassie Tezak's sweet pastel scene featuring Santa's Workshop with a pink and white awning!

I made another North Pole village stop...Mrs. Claus' Sweet Shoppe, with Papertrey Ink's Petite Places: Sweet Shoppe...


I used a snow stencil from KaiserCraft with white texture paste over a background sponged with Distress Oxide Inks. Stamped a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps.


Used Petite Places: Sweet Shoppe stamps and dies and PTI's Tinsel & Tags kit stamps and dies for my little shoppe tucked in the snowy hills of the North Pole!

25 Days of Christmas Tags- Day 16


On Day 16 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, there were sweet designs from Waffle Flower! I
was inspired by Carol Mayne's sweet bear tag with the navy plaid background...



I colored Waffle Flower's adorable "Bear Hugs" image with Zig Clear Color and Tombow markers and placed it over a background made with Hero Art's "Star Light Star Bright" background. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.


I cut the whole scene out with a scalloped square die from Nestabilities, then added Stardust Stickles on each and every little star! 😊🎇
