May 2020 12 Kits of Occasions

This month at the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog, Marcia Hill was our hostess and she sent the most adorable kit entitled “April Showers Bring May Flowers!” She challenged us to make our blogs bloom with life and flowers and COLOR!

First, my eyes went right to this adorable Stampingbella “Bundle Girl with a Snowdrop” and the amazing gingham paper!

I colored her with Zig Clean Color and Tombow markers and added a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Hello Friend” set.

I added lots of Stickles and Wink of Stella Stardust pen details, because she reminded me of a sweet little garden fairy! Oh, and some Glossy Accents to her blue galoshes!

Next up is this gorgeous patterned paper with the beautiful tulip bouquet in a Mason jar! It is from a set called “Mandy’s Flowers” by Simon Says Stamp. Again I colored with Zig and Tombow markers. I added a mini paper bow from Mama Elephant, one of the “Simple Little Tags” from Memory Box and a sentiment from WPlus9 Studio.

Last up is this gorgeous silver embossed floral image that Marcia sent. It is called “First Blush” by Penny Black...

I colored the image with Copic markers then cut it out with this “HBD” birthday die from The Stamp Market. I added a Memory Box Branch die cut and a little birdie from a past kit that I colored with Copics, too.

I added lots of Nuvo Glitter Paste in “Moonstone” on the flowers and the bird, and embossed PTI’s Hawaiian Shores” cardstock with Stampin Up’s “Subtle” 3D embossing folder.

Thank you SO much to Marcia for sharing these gorgeous papers, die cuts, and florals with us this month! Made my heart so happy sitting in my crafting room in the sunshine! Thanks to all for stopping by today! ❤️

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

It’s time for the Spring/Summer 2020 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  It’s such a fun hop to play along with, and there are prizes from SO many generous sponsors! I made a card featuring The Greetery’s “Cozy Cup” stamp set and coordinating dies, and the “Cozy Cup Coaster” die.

I masked the plaid on the coaster and inked it up in the gorgeous new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink color “Speckled Egg,” which I quickly received from Simon Says Stamp! Added some blooms from The Greetery’s “Oopsy Daisy” set, and a “farmhouse table” background with Stampin Up’s “Pinewood Plank” 3D Stamp and Cut Embossing Folder.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

April Snow Showers...

Bring blue May flowers?! That is how the saying seems to be going this week in Western New York! A card for the Color Throwdown this week...aqua, turquoise, gray, and gold!

I chose The Stamp Market’s “May Flowers” for my card...

I stamped and die cut the multi-step images and added a gold embossed sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s “Pen & Ink.”

Thanks for stopping by!

Polka Dot Charm

This week at the Inspired By Challenge is this charming little room entitled “ Night Night”...

I chose The Stamp Market’s “Floral Fun Card Cover” die paired with some old favorite supplies for my card...

I hate jigsaw puzzles, but adding die cut pieces back into a cover plate is more my kind of crafty thing! I stamped a piece of cardstock with patterns from Waltzingmouse Stamps “Gingham & Company” then cut the flowers from those. Used the Swiss Dot embossing folder from ProvoCraft for the inlaid pieces, then placed those in last. The sentiment is from The Stamp Market’s “You” set. I love this color combination, so charming and country chic! Thanks so much for stopping by!
