MFT Slimline Challenge--Tweet Birthday

Hello again! Today I have a card to share for the MFT Slimline Challenge-- Spring has Sprung. I love the slimline card, but when I go to make one, I'm not sure what to do.  Also, they are very hard to photograph and the whole card will not fit on an Instagram post LOL!


This is what I came up with.  I'm happy the way it turned out.  

The MFT products used are:
Spring Songbirds Stamps & Die-namics
Slimline Slide-In Die-namics
MFT card stock but I'm not sure of the color as it came from a card kit I broke down.

I hope you have a great day!

Growing in Unity Blog Hop


Hello everyone! Today is a Growing in Unity Blog Hop with the GIU Gals from the last few months.  As you can see from above, be sure to comment on all the posts for your chance to win one of two Unity filled prizes!


Today, I used the Sweet Easter Gnome stamp set. There are 9 stamps in this set and I used one of the gnomes and one sentiment.  I had planned to make a second card with the other gnome but we got a puppy a week ago and she is full of energy and needs lots of attention LOL! (see pic below).

I stamped my gnome image onto a mat die cut.  He's colored in with Copic markers and I love how bright he turned out! Next I stamped the sentiment near the top.  Then I added some enamel dots (of course) But there was a lot of white space. I decided I wanted to add a bit of color with some watercolor.  So I took the backing from the stamps to be my mask and flicked on some watercolor to match the gmoe colors.

Lastly, I found this fun green patterned paper, pop dotted the top layer to the green with a bit of Trendy Twine curled up in the corner.

If you are following in order, your next stop is Shannon.  And here's the hop line up if you just stopped by my blog today:
Amy 

And here's our new puppy Maisy! She will make crafting difficult for a bit but she is so cute and fun that it's ok.

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Thanks Card

 Hello everyone.  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I'm sharing a quick card with you using Chocolate Cupcake Trendy TwineRaspberry Cupcake Sequins and Chocolate Truffle Sequins.


I say it's a quick card, but really when you are trying to decide what to do and what paper to use, it's probably not that quick.  But, once you decided that, it's not long LOL!  I wanted to use these fun banner dies and the fun thanks die as well.

I adhered my banners and added my Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine across the top of them and added the bow.  Next I die cut the thanks and layered 3 together.  To finish it off, I added some Raspberry Cupcake and Chocolate Truffle Sequins.

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sweetest Wishes

 Hello! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I'm sharing a project using Chocolate Cupcake Trendy TwineKraft Scalloped Note CardsKraft Small Envelopes and the You & Me Planner Stamp Set.


I used a small die for the pink layer to put on my Kraft Scallop Note Cards and added some cute die cut and colored llamas to that with pop dots. Additionally, I die cut a strip to add my sentiment.


Next I wrapped my Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine around the top twice and tied it off with a bow.  Then I grabbed the Kraft Small Envelopes and added a stamp in a light brown from the You & Me Planner Stamp set to the bottom in a row.


These make such cute little note cards!

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Banner Love

 Hello everyone!  I'm posting at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a cute banner card to share with you using Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine


I got this cute banner die set and I just knew it would be perfect to use my Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine with.  The banner die cuts the circle holes at the top and I was able to thread my Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine through all the pieces very easily.  I did add foam tape to the banner pieces to pop it up and I tucked my Trendy Twine around the back of the red paper before I taped it down to hold it in place.  Then I just added some twine bows to the edges.

This is will be so fun for cakes and treats and I can use my wide variety off Trendy Twine colors to match the occasion!

Growing in Unity Day 5 -- No Probllama

Hello everyone!  Today is Day 5 and my last day in my Growing in Unity Week with Unity Stamp Co.  It's been so much fun being able to create cards with my Unity Stamps this week and share them with you.  Thank you so much for all your comments this week!

Today I used Llama Tell Ya Something Set.  I have used Owls, Gnomes and now Llamas this week.  I collect all of those LOL. This was a fun card to make


I actually already mailed this card off to someone who's birthday is today.  The sentiment was pretty perfect for her. I used some fun paper from Pink Paislee Birthday Bash 6x6 paper. The llama is stamped onto the base but the bow I stamped and cut out and added with foam pop dots.

Be sure to leave a comment for you chance to win 1 of 2 Unity Stamp Grab bags.  I'll be drawing winners on Sunday or Monday.


Have a wonderful weekend!!

Growing in Unity Day 4 -- Big Happy Wishes

Hi there!  It's Day 4 of my Growing in Unity Week for Unity Stamp Co.  The week is almost up!  Being a Growing in Unity Gal helps me play with my stamps and practice coloring.  I hope to continue with that better this year since it started out this way.

Today I used the ....It's a Mug Hug, the November 2020 Sentiment Kit. I love getting the sentiment kits for all the saying in them that I can use on any card.


I made a slimline card with this set.  They are not easy to photograph :)  On the 'foam' I added a snow maker.  If you don't know about those, you heat it up and it puffs up.  I'm not a coffee drinker so I like to think this is hot chocolate and colored the stick to look a bit like a candy cane.

The red hearts are stamped with the heart from ...Say it Big, the May 2019 Sentiment Kit.  Then I added some enamel dots.

Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win 1 of 2 Unity Stamp grab bags and come back for one more chance tomorrow.

....It's a Mug Hug

Have a great day!


 



Trendy Bakers Twine -- Hug & Kisses

Hello! I'm posting over at Twine It Up with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a candy treat using the Pink Mini Popcorn BoxesCherry Cupcake Trendy Twine, the You & Me Planner Stamp Set and the Printable Print and Punch Hugs & Kisses Tags.


The mini popcorn boxes are so cute and fun!  I stamped my sentiments from the You & Me Planner Stamp Set on all the sides while it was flat.  Next I added my Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine by gluing it around the bottom.


I found the cute little XO sequins and added them along with some heart enamels since I love them so much.  The box is filled with heart shaped swedish fish and I added the cute Hugs & Kisses Printables glued together with a toothpick in between and tied a bow of Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine to it.

Have a great day!

Growing In Unity Day 3 -- Have a Sweet Birthday

Hello!  It's Day 3 of my Growing in Unity week for Unity Stamp Co.  This is just so fun!  I love to be able to play with my stamps and just have fun. I also am building my birthday card stash as I've decided I'm going to try to actually mail out birthday cards this year!

Today, I used Sweet Sprinkled Donut and I actually stamped the image out a few times and made 3 cards to share today.  I used different papers from the same Pink Paislee Birthday Bash 6x6 pad for the cards.  I want to make more!


One of the donuts I used glossy accents on the icing to make it look shiny.  But that made the cardstock wavy so I don't think I'll do that much again. I added some different enamel dots and hearts to the cards. These were fun to make and I hope to make more. 

Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win 1 of 2 Unity Stamps Grab bags!


Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow!!

Growing in Unity Day 1 -- Warm Winter Wishes

Hello everyone!  I am the Growing in Unity Girl this week for Unity Stamp Company.  This is such a fun week where I will post a project each day this week using my Unity Stamps.  If you leave comments, you will be entered be 1 of 2 people chosen for a grab bag of 25 Unity Stamps!

For today's card, I used Shakin' Things Up.  I am pretty sure I own all the Lisa Arana owls stamp sets she has made for Unity.  They are just so cute and I love owls.


I decided to use a circle die from MFT Stamps since the owl is in a snow globe. this is colored with Copic Markers and there's some Clear Wink of Stella throughout the globe.  Additionally, I added glossy accents to the owl's eyes.

I used foam tape to adhere the circle and some silver cording underneath.  Lastly, I used some Stampin' Up! Clear Epoxy Dots for some accents.  

I do hope you come back everyday this week as I have some more fun projects lined up and if you comment every day, that's five chances to win!



Have a wonderful day!
