Make a Wish

Make A Wish

I decided to make a shooting star card and I love how it turned out!

I cut two of my top panels out of basic white card stock, I cut two so that when I create my sliding track you will be able to see the second panel through the cut. I stamped them with Lawn Fawn Starry Backdrops and white heat embossed. I then used Distress ink to give me a night time sky color.

I took the birthday sentiment from LF Year Six and the Make a Wish from Craftin' Desert Divas Magical Wishes and stamped them in LF new Blue Jay ink. I just got a mini Misti, it is so great! I used it to stamp this sentiment and was able to double stamp it to get a great solid image.

I added the moon from the Starry Backdrops and a few die cut stars, both covered in Mercury glass stickles. I absolutely love this color!!!!

I used a LF Lawn lawn ornament wood veneer star and some strips of vellum to create my shooting star. I covered both with clear Winks of Stella pen for that shimmer. I used LF Slide Over die set to create my sliding track for my star. I placed everything on a base panel of LF Blue Jay paper. 

See it in action:

Craftin Desert Divas - Linky Party - Create a Scene

Craftin Desert Divas

Ahh! I love this card! I created my first slider card! 

I used the pirate images from the recent new release from Craftin Desert Divas, Adventure Awaits and Adventure Land. I used the SVG outlines on my Cricut Explore to cut the images. I just got a mini Misti tool (like on Monday!) and used it to make sure that my stamps were centered properly, It is great and it worked perfectly! I colored them with Zig Clean Color Markers.

My base panel is where my slide is so I cut two card sized panels of the same color and used the Lawn Fawn slider dies. Then I just took a penny and used foam to attach the ship to the front of the  penny with the penny in the back. I think I may have used a piece that was a little to thick as it skips in its motion a little bit, next time I will make it thinner. I used two layers of foam tape to give the penny enough sliding room. I just love it!

I used a Lawn Fawn border die for my waves cut from some pattern paper and put a little salty ocean distress ink on the edge to help them stand out. I also did some glitter embossing on the waves. I added a few little beach items from Lawn Fawn that I already had colored and laying around. 

I attached the Pirate with sword and map with foam tape and placed the treasure chest flat on the panel. I couldn't call it complete without adding some sequins! 

Thank you and See You Next Time!

HELLO - Craftin' Desert Diva May Digi Challenge - Cute Critters


I got this cute bear holding an apple from Craftin' Desert Divas Digi files, lots of cute choices.

I printed the bear from Word onto watercolor paper. I colored the image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I loved coloring this image, it was so much fun!!! This smile on the bear is not part of the digi. Normally I cover mouths on animals but I thought this bear would look really cute with a cute little smile! I die cut the white panel, that the image is printed on, and the blue base panel with Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies.

I added the patterned paper strip at the top and used Simon Says Stamp Painted Hello die as my sentiment. I added a few dot stickers for some glitz.

That's it! Super Cute, Super Easy!

Thank You and See You Next Time!

You're Out of This World!

So I had to use the Comet sequins and with a name like comet you think outer space!

I used the Craftin Desert Divas new release stamp sets Adventure awaits and Adventure Land. I also used the SVG outlines, I love those! It's great to be able to cut the images without a die set. The fact that you cut first just makes stamping them a little more precise.

So I used the SVG outlines and cut them out with my Cricut Explore and stamped them with Simon Says Black ink. I colored them with two methods, Tombow brush tip marker and some water coloring with Distress Ink, Peacock Feathers and Ripe Persimmon match the Comet sequins perfectly!

I created a universe panel with the Distress Ink and used an oval die to create my shaker window, I used the cut out as the background to the shaker. I put the UFO in the shaker but adhered it to the shaker area so it wouldn't move around. The rocket, planet and space dude were put on the front panel. I stamped the sentiment in Dew Drop Starlite Silver Brilliance ink and clear heat embossed it.

This card went through a lot of changes so I am glad that it turned out as good as it did.

I am so excited to use the rest of the new release, it is so cute! Find it here!

Thank you and See you next time!

Lawnscaping Challenge #130 - Sparkle It Up!

Best Fishes!

For the background I cut a base panel from Lawn Fawn blue jay card stock using the largest Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die. I cut three panels from watercolor paper using the 2nd largest Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die and used the Ocean Wave border die to cut two layers of waves from two of the panels. I used Distress Inks to get the gradient ocean coloring. I cut the ocean floor from kraft paper with a Stitched Hillside die.

I cut all my images from watercolor paper and colored them with my Zig clean color markers, I love those things! I added stickles to each image, either totally covering it or just in certain places. I had a ton of pieces colored and cut and had to down-size, cuz my card is only so big! 

I admit, Lawn Fawn is my favorite! 

I got all the Lawn Fawn stamp sets that had to do with underwater creatures so that I could make a massive card with tons of stuff on. Hadn't done it yet, but that's why I got them. . . 

The new release!!!! Is amazing!!! Totally inspired!!!!! The Mermaid for You set is at the top of my list as it fits into my plans! Not to mention Kelly Marie totally did a card that is like what I planned on making, So I decided to go ahead and make my card! I will have to make another one once I get that set!

Thank you and see you next time!


little red wagon - Happy Birthday To A Fungi

little red wagon - Let's Hear It For the Boys 

The challenge is to make a masculine card so I made a birthday card for my brother with this cute mushroom that I gave a mustache!

I got this cute little Lawn Fawn stamp set as a freebie for scrapbook day this year with my order from

I stamped the mushroom on watercolor paper with Simon Says Black ink and colored with my Zig Clean Color markers and stamped the sentiment in lawn Fawn Jalapeno ink. 

I used a Simon Says Stamp die for the Happy Birthday and used the same paper as my base. I covered it in wink of Stella because even though its a manly card, its not from me if it's not covered in sparkles!

I die cut my base panel from Lawn Fawn Nobel Fir card stock, my second panel from a light wood grain paper and my top panel from watercolor paper as that is what I was going to stamp onto. I added a few Virginia Turtle glitter enamel dots to finish the card.

I can't wait to give this card to my brother, he's gonna love it!

Thank you and See you next time!

Craftin Desert Divas:FOODIE

Craftin Desert Divas

We go together like Milk and Cookies!

I used a digital stamp I won from playing bingo during the new release for Craftin' Desert Divas! Ya Hoo! I picked out this adorable Milk and Cookie because I already had the Perfect Pair sentiment stamp set and it would go perfect with it!

I used Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies for my panels, a dark brown for my bottom and I used water color paper for my top. I honestly don't really know how digi stamps work but I upload them into design space and then cut them out of vinyl with my Cricut Explore and basically end up with outline stickers. I put those on my watercolor paper and then color them in with Distress Inks.

I stamped my sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Black Ink and added some brown doodlebug glitter enamel dots.

I think it is adorable!

Be Amazing

Craftin Desert Divas

Be Amazing

I got a new stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs, I just love this pineapple! I stamped it with Lawn Fawn Sunflower and Jalapeno inks and used the matching die to cut it out. I ran a little wink of stella over the yellow in the pineapple for some glitz.

I was following the Sugar Pea Designs Sketch Challenge Sugar Sketch 52 for my card layout.

My base panel I cut to card size, this super cute pineapple pattern, I also used it for my little flag in the top corner. Then I used a pale green polka dot paper for my next panel, die cutting the bottom edging with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders die. I also die cut a circle from the green panel and put a striped yellow background under it, I wanted something that make my pineapple pop out. I just used white watercolor paper for my stripe across the middle, I flicked it with some Distress Ink (a mixture of crushed olive and mowed lawn) and Perfect Pearls. I added my pineapple with some foam squares and threw on some sequins!

I love how bright and cheery this card is!

Two challenges this week were for a non card item. I made this for my sister-in-law who loves sunflowers.


I picked up the board from Target, put a dark walnut stain on it and brushed a light yellow paint on top. I did sand the edges a little bit for a more distressed look. 

I glittered the inside of the jar and attached it to the board by screwing a hose clamp to the board. I hot glued the flowers into the jar to keep them in place.

I used my explore to cut out the word home and applied it to the board.

This project went as expected, I had a little trouble attached the hose clamp and next time I would use a smaller jar.

I'm entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge and the little red wagon challenge.

Lawnscaping Challenge #129 : Calling All Critters

Hello Baby Boys!

I started with a base panel or white pearl paper die cut with the largest Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle  die. My next panel I stepped down a size and used a blue polka dot paper, I wanted my shaker background to have some color. I stepped down one more size for my top panel. I die cut a circle out of the panel and just left it white.

 Using LF Fish Tank ink I stamped BABY BOY from the LF Little Bundle set and added an S from one of the other sentiments.

The HELLO is a Simon Says Stamp die, I used the same blue polka dot paper and added a little Chipped Sapphire Distress ink to the edges. 

I used the flying stork from the LF Plus One set, I wanted this for twins so I added a bundle from the LF Hello Baby set. These were all colored using Zig Clean Color Markers.So its a shaker card, I added acetate to the back of my panel and lots of foam dots. I used a mix of any blue sequins that I had and threw in a little of the Nautical sparkle mix by Little Things (Just got those sand they are so adorable!) and some off white seed beads.

So one of my little sisters is preggo with TWINS! I'm so excited about this, I am going to go visit her after the babies are born and just cannot wait! 

I am not able to attend her baby shower but I made her this adorable shaker card! It turned out way better than I had hoped! I love it and hope she will love it too!

Thank you and See you next time!

Craftin' Desert Divas - In the Garden

Craftin Desert Divas

Craftin' Desert Divas - In the Garden

I used the rose with leaves from the Flowers in Bloom stamp set in the Craftin' Desert Divas new release, those flowers were just so pretty! I also got the SVG outlines, I hate to fussy cut and have an Explore so thought that I would give them a try. I did two trial cuts to get the amount of outline I wanted on the stamp, I also had to stamp it after I cut it out, not as bad as I thought it was going to be. (If anybody else has an Explore and they are able to stamp then cut please let me know! I think I see a Scan and Cut in my future! ) I used Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die for my base panel.

I stamped them with Versa Mark and heat embossed with white. Then I used Peerless Water Colors to color the flower and attached with foam dots. I picked matching colors from Distress Ink to flick color for the background. I used Samantha font for my words and cut them from adhesive vinyl to easily transfer to my card. I cut a piece of vellum to go behind the flowers and added a little yellow twine to the side and finished with doodle bug glitter enamel dots.

For this one I added ribbon and used some stickles on the middle rose.

I think these turned out great! I was really happy with how the SVGs cut, will definitely get those with my stamps from now on if offered. 

Thank you and see you next time!
