True Confessions

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  TGIF is all I have to say after two weeks of on and off sickness around here!  Are you ready for a true stamping confession?  I won Breathtaking Bouquet for my prize patrol in Vegas and I didn't really like it!

Not that I wasn't grateful for a free stamp set, but it just wasn't my favorite set.  But, as things tend to do around here, it grew on me and now I think it's pretty gorgeous.  I also overlooked the sample at the bottom in the catalog which I think is fantastic!

Anyway, I kept my first go with it kind of simple and just used it for a monochromatic background.  I used a blender pen to fill in a few of the flower centers for a pretty accent.

I've got more fun things with this one so stay tuned!

Happy stamping!

Taco Thursday

Hi stampers!  Quick post!  Here's a cute card with Witty-Cisms which is just so cute!  And I love me some tacos!

The pigment sprinkles were perfect for a background!

Do you love tacos?  Do you love this guy?

Happy stamping!

Paper Pumpkin Is The Bee's Knees

Hi stampers!  Quick little post today!  Are you signed up for Paper Pumpkin with me?  If not, you should be!  It's great for beginners or seasoned crafters and everyone in between!  It comes with everything you need to make a cute and relatively quick project!  It's also great if you want to be creative but don't want to invest the time, money, or space that the crazies like me have ;-)

Right now is a great time because of Sale A Bration, if you purchase a prepaid option (you can also sign up on a month to month basis if that's your jam), you can earn FREE SAB items!  You can order three, six, or twelve month subscriptions!

Let me know if you have questions or need more help!  If you do want to sign up, here's the link!  If I get some local-to-Tulsa subscribers I'll start a Paper Pumpkin night and invite you to my house to make the kits!

And if you're looking to do fun alternative projects, I'll try to post inspiration as well.  Like this little treat box I whipped up with one of our little clear treat boxes and a few elements from the kit and little bit of card stock of my own!

Could it BEE any cuter?

Let me know if I can help you in any way, ok?

Happy stamping!

Let's Celebrate

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  I hope your week is starting better than ours.  On top of the flu we have around here, Ian has an ear infection now.  I'm ready for everyone to be healthy!  So, it's a quick post today!

Birthday Bonanza and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies pair so well together!  My little lion is perfect in Mango and Curry and I snipped his little mane all the way around and used my bone folder to curl it up for a bit of dimension.  I also love this DSP pattern, so festive!

Back to taking care of my boys!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 181

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  This week has NOT gone as planned!  Poor Ian came down with a fever on Saturday night.  Thankfully it was low grade but it lasted over four days and you could tell the poor guy just didn't feel good.  I didn't get much stamping or much of anything done, he needed a lot of cuddles.  He's out of school two days next week for the holiday and conferences so they are letting me send him today when he doesn't normally go on Fridays!  We are both pretty excited about it :-)

I'm also excited I actually have something to share today!  It's time for Fab Friday!  We have a sketch this round.

I had to bust out the Bonanza Buddies for this one, it's just so fun!

This one is for all of my friends down under!  I hope you're all doing ok with all the fires!  I just wanted to say HI and I've been thinking about you!  I love how the washi tape coordinates with this suite so well!  And this little guy just looks like he's waving hi, doesn't he?

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team made and play along with us, this is such a fun sketch!

Happy stamping!

Looking Sharp and Simple

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  I'm sharing another very simple card today using just our notecards, stamps, and ink!  The stamp set is a super cute one from the new 2020 January-June Mini Catalog!

I LOVE puny sets and this one is so cute!  I'm such a sucker for them!  One of my very first purchases was a similar set!

I mean!  How cute are those?????  Since it's been pretty cold out the last few days, I thought I'd use the cactus and pretend it's warmer here!  You may be asking who you'd send this kind of card to and I think you could send it to anyone and that it would just make a fun any time, any occasion card to a friend!

I did pull a Blender Pen in to add some color to the cactus.  That's a great tip if you don't have a big collection or markers.  You can basically make a marker out of any ink pad you have!  I added my "sand" from the Label Me Bold Stamp Set, it's a cute little accent set!

Ian is home recovering after being sick over the weekend so hopefully I can get some stamp time in, we'll see!

Happy stamping!

Starting Simply

Hi stampers!  Edited to add:  I've been trying to post this for two days!  For some reason this picture would act like it imported on my Mac but I couldn't find the image anywhere!  OY!  Finally, here we go!

My first official post of 2020!  I'm going to start off simply this week (after being in Illinois for over two you can imagine what my house looks like after unpacking a car full of Christmas haha)!  The January-June Mini Catalog went live this week and I'm so excited about it!

I whipped up this cute but super simple card before I left home for the holidays!  I had to use the Bonanza Birthday Stamp Set first!

I'll admit, they look a little freaky without their faces on but they ares to stinkin' cute!  Just add some ink and a notecard and you have a cute little birthday card.  What kid wouldn't love this cute guy?

Off to organize and unpack some more.  I'm so far behind!

Happy stamping!
