More Sprinkles of Life

Happy Friday! I'm excited to share another card with you today. I am really having fun with this new set. I can't wait to show you a card that doesn't use the cupcake or ice cream that's in the set. Hopefully this weekend, I will have time to play a little more. I love how this card came out. It's so cute. I decided to make it a square card (4 1/4 x 4 1/4). I was inspired by the card seen {HERE}. I used lots of new goodies on this card. The green cardstock is the new Cucumber Crush. This is a nice bright green color. I imagine this will look great with Christmas cards. I also used some of the DSP from the Cherry on Top paper stack. Aren't those dots super cute! The yellow DSP behind it is also from the paper stack. I stamped the cupcake in Pool Party and Tip Top Taupe. I think this color will be my new go to neutral color. I also stamped the candle and colored it in with the Watermelon Wonder and Delightful Dijon markers. I added some sparkle to the candle flame and the cupcake. It's a little hard to see that in the photo. For the circle behind the cupcake, I added some doodles with the Project life pen. I felt like it needed a little something and the doodles definitely helped. The sentiment was stamped on vellum paper. Two little sequins on the end help to hide the dimensionals adhering it to the card. :)

I hope everyone has a great weekend. We will be working on the living room again. We are getting down to the end of finishing up the work in there. We need to decide if we want to get the floors refinished (they need it bad) but that's obviously more money and more work involved. It would however really finish it off. Then we will need a new couch and rug. I cannot wait to get those! I will share some before and after pics on here once it's near completion. But it's already looking so much better than where we started.

Please let me know what you think of this new set so far! I would love to hear your thoughts! Enjoy!

Sneak Peek - Sprinkles of Life

Hello there! I have a sneak peek of new goodies to share today. I was actually able to get a card made yesterday. It took me a little while since I only had time to do bits and pieces here and there but I'll take it! I have a complete card to share so that's all that matters, haha! I used the new Sprinkles of Life set which is the Ronald McDonald House Charity set. Three dollars of each set go to the charity. There is one of these in every catalog and this year it is super cute! There is also a matching punch for the ice cream scoops! Wait until you see the whole set, there is so much more than just the ice cream! But for today's card I went with a birthday theme. I stamped the ice cream in Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and the new Watermelon Wonder. The ice cream cone was stamped with the new Tip Top Taupe (this is a great color). The DSP is also new. It's from a 6 x 6 pack called Cherry on Top. The papers in here are adorable. They are great for birthday cards or really any card where you want to add some fun bright colors. The hello is from the Four You stamp set and the Happy Birthday underneath is from Sprinkles of Life. I stamped these in versamark first, then Watermelon Wonder and heat embossed it. I also added Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper and a button with twine.

I have ideas spinning in my head for a few more cards with this set, so stay tuned. I am also offering a card class during the month of July with this set. I will share more details once I complete the projects for it.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day!

Mother's Day cards

Happy Monday! Long time no see. I was on such a roll for a while there and then I just lost my motivation. I have new goodies tomorrow so hopefully that will inspire me! Also, we've been working on redoing our living room, painting, etc. so that has cut into a lot of our time. If I'm not working on that, then I'm doing our household stuff that has taken a back seat during this time. And after all that I'm too tired to craft. So we're in the home stretch of the living room project and now I have new goodies coming so I HAVE to make some play time!
Today's cards are cards that I made for my mom and mother-in-law for mother's day. I was inspired by this week's TGIF Challenge. {HERE} I did tweak the sketch a little bit, but that's the fun in these challenges. You can put your own twist on it.

I used the Indescribable Gift set for these cards. I wanted to do some watercoloring so I stamped the flower image on watercolor paper and went to town. I used Blackberry Bliss ink as well as Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede. Then for the background I just messily (is that a word?) added Coastal Cabana ink. I will miss this color so much when it's gone! You guys better stock up now on this color while you can. Also, this stamp set will be retiring too by the beginning of June. It's so good for coloring or just stamping it for the background which I did on the Soft Sky piece. The sentiment is from And Many More. The finishing touches were some baker's twine with a button and some gold glitter in the middle of the flowers. I love the watercolor look and how something can still look so pretty when it's not perfectly colored in the lines. Watercolor gives you that ability to be more free with your coloring and I think that is so fun.

So since I've been enjoying watercoloring lately, I am going to be offering a Watercolor class over the summer. I am having an Open House for the new catalog on June 11th where I will have the catalog, samples, new product and my class list. Now that the baby is getting bigger and I'm getting a little more of my time back, I'm getting back into offering more classes. Once I have more details on the classes I will post information here on the blog. Feel free to contact me to join my class (if you are in the NJ area) or I can come to you to have a class.

And speaking of my baby getting bigger :( Here is her 9 month photo from this weekend. I can't believe she's 9 months. Time is really just flying by this second time around!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
