Happy! Happy! Happy!


Happy Easter!   Happy Spring!   Happy Passover!

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday with family and friends and enjoying this beautiful weather while it is here.    Here are some tags I made with The Project Bin Spring Zen sentiments and Easter designer series paper I have.    Tags are so quick and easy to make and add a special extra touch to a gift or even a plate of goodies to bring to a hostess.    

The designer series paper I fussy cut was from KaiserCraft Fine & Sunny Collection as well as bunnies from The Paper Studio.    Odds and ends of scraps were used from my retired designer series paper Welcome Home and Echo Park Multi Colored Plaid.    The finishing touches were Craft Companion grass die cut, EK Success and Stampin' Up! daisy punches and some enamel dots.

Travel at Your Own Pace

How friggin' cute is this new stamp set from The Project Bin called Love Your Shellfie.    I colored in my new little friend with my Stampin' Blends.     There is so many great sentiments that come with this set.    I paired it up with two of them on this card.     The grass is an Impression Obssession die.    I ended up putting all these fun sentiments on a Stitched Rectangle die cut.    The plaid paper comes from Lawn Fawn.   Candy Dots and a heart complete the card. 

Today's Good Mood


Sometimes a card stays with you.   Shelly Kurth created this beauty many years ago.  When I say this Mug Life sentiment Today's good mood sponsored by coffee I thought it would be perfect with a mug and a little sunshine.       The sunshine was diecut from the Sizzex You & Me.    The little smile comes from the Lawn Fawn Love you a Latte stamp set.    The mug was die cut from the Cups & Kettles framelits.     The designer series paper is retired Tasty Treats.     The coffee beans come from the Coffee Cafe.

I Know Things


So my school theme cards continues.     This card is perfect for graduates as well as for teacher apprection.      I just love this sentiment from The Ink Road Stamps Mug Life.    That's what I do I drink coffee & I know things.   I stamped it on a My Favorite Things Coffee Cup die cut.   I sponged on Distress Oxide Walnut Stain for textured.     I paired it up the Unity A to Z Coordinates stamp set.     The background was done with Dylusions Old School Number Large stencil and Distress Oxide Walnut Stain ink sponged on.    I used the retired Urban background designer series paper on the card.    The finishing touch was a button with linen thread. 

Congrats Graduate

I was completely and totally inspired by all the beautiful creations in this week's Freshly Made Sketch of the week.     There were so many beautiful florals but I decided to sponge Distress Oxide Festive Berries with my Letter It stencil instead of stamping florals.    The Stitched Rectangle framelits were die cut and layered on top with Stampin' Dimensionals.    The sentiments were stamped with the Ranger Letter It Celebration and the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.     The graduation hat comes from the Unity A to Z Coordiantes stamp set.     Enamel dots complete the card. 

Oh, The Places You Will Go

I just realized it is that before you know it will be time for graduations!   I just got an invitation for a college graduation party in May.    So I pulled out my graduation stamp sets and thought how I can mix some of my old favorites with some new things in my collection.   

So the old was the retired Sent with Love stamp set and coordinating designer series paper.     The sentiment Oh, the places you will go comes from the Places You'll Go.    The clouds are from the Rainbow & Unicorn stamp set from Jillibean Soup.    The banner comes from the Reverse Confetti Bitty Banners.     The word graduate comes from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.    The circle background was sponged on with Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass.      Candy Dots were the finishing touch on the card. 

Today Blooms For You

So it's that wonderful time of the year, warm spring weather and flowers.     Here are my niece and nephew planting flowers last year.   The florals from the Perennial Birthday were a perfect fit for my page.   The title was stamped in the retired Layered Letters Alphabet.     The flowers were colored in with my Stampin' Blends.   You are my Sunshine comes from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.   The butterflies and gingham paper comes from the Botanical Butterly designer series paper.    A button with baker's twine completes the page.

What the French Toast?

So I saw this triangle sketch a few days ago and it stayed with me and I just knew I wanted to create a card with it.    I decided to work with the Avery Elle No Way! stamp set.       The hardest part of the card was finding the right shades of markers to make the french toast and I think I did it.    I used my Stampin' Blends they were all the dark shades of Crumb Cake, Pineapple Punch and Daffodil Delight.    The designer series paper comes from the Echo Park Splash.    Enamel dots complete the card. 

Can Not Talk to Any More of Them

Where the last card was all Loralei Gilmore this card is a Rory card.    I can so hear her saying this and then running off to her bedroom or the book store and reading one of her many novels.  

The sentiment and books come from the Stars Hollow stamp set.    The mug comes from Mug Life.    The images were colored in with my Copic markers.     The designer series paper is from an old Richard Garay Noteworthy set. 

Coffee Please in a Vat

So I can so hear Lorlaei Gilmore saying this.   I love how Ink Road stamps has all these amazing quotes from so many of my favorite shows.    Stars Hollow has all these great quotes from the Gilmore Girls.    

I started with taking my Crumb Cake ink refill and my aqua painter and making my background.     Next I took my Stamparatus which helped in keeping the sentiment in a line and in order.    I added the coffee beans from Coffee Cafe and the coffee cup.    The last step was layering it on top of black card stock.

Love Autism

April is the beginning of Autism Awareness Month.    For the month of April, The Project Bin will be selling the beautiful stamp set Spencer's Set for only 5$ or free with a 60$ purchase.    This set should be on your wish list just for the beautiful and versatile sentiments in it.     The sentiment on this card is Love needs no words.     It comes with the beautiful autism heart.    I colored it in with my Copics.    The love was die cut from the Little Yellow Bicycle framelits.    A strip of designer series paper from The Paper Studio completes the card. 

Princess Castle

I am one of the biggest Disney fans so if I see a stamp set with a Disney theme or quotes it is a must have for my collection.    Here are two stamp sets I have that I paired up to make this card.    The first one is has the castle and it is from Color Play.     The second one with the fabulous princess names is from The Ink Road Earresistible set.   I love our Stamparatus.   It maded lining up the names so easy.   Then I moved the board two notces and it was perfect placement for the names to stamp again in alignment.     The little stars come from the Sweet Stamp Shop Happy Hour set.    A strip of The Paper Studio designer series paper completes the card. 

We're Adults

This is by far one of my favorite stamp sets, it is called Dark & Twisty from The Ink Road.    It is quotes from my favorite tv show, Grey's Anatomy.    There are so many that can be put on cards and sent to just about anyone.     How great is We're adults wen did that happen? and how do we make it stop? 

I paired it up with the Half Full stamp set colored in with my Stampin' Blends.    Strips of Fun Stampers Journey designer series paper complete the cards. 

Successful Woman

So I have had the Taylored Expressions Wash. Dry. Repeat. stamp set for some time for a while now.    I decided to pull it out and play with it.    I have to say I love the way the way this card came out.   It is a mix of my favorite scrapbook kit, Echo Park Happy Days and this great stamp set for a great retro feel.   Copics and Stampin' Blends color in the images.  

The background I used the Letter It Stencil and some Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass ink.    The large diamond behind the sentiment comes from EK Success. 

Lifetime Wishes

I couldn't wait to get the Country Floral Emossing Folder.    I saw someone who embossed on Basic Gray card stock and it was just gorgeous.   It made me think of etched stone work.    It was just gorgeous.    So I paired it up with fussy cut roses from the Petal Garden designer series paper.   The sentiment comes from the Dandelion Wishes.   It was placed in a die cut Stitched Shapes.   Enamel dots complete the card.
