I started with a neutral backdrop because I am adding a bright stenciled heart for my gator from Later Gator.  A white note card along with gray die cut Postage Stamp SugarCut was used for my neutral backdrop.  Candied Apple Distress Ink was ink blended over the Leaf Canopy Stencil and die cut with the stitched heart from the Postage Stamp SugarCut.  My gator was Copic colored, die cut and added with foam adhesive over the heart along with the "latte" image.  The sentiment was stamped at the bottom in black ink.

Reverse Confetti / January Blog Hop


Hello and Welcome to the Reverse Confetti January Blog Hop!  The new release is now available but today we have LOTS more inspiration using these new products.  

I have a pair of cards to share using the OMG stamps and OMG Confetti Cuts.  I have a feminine and masculine version!  This is a great set for this!

I started by cutting complimentary strips of Reverse Confetti cardstock in 1/4" widths.  I adhered them at the bottom of a white note card leaving just a tiny space in between colors.  I added the die cut OMG that was stamped in Avocado and Flamingo inks.  To finish, the additional sentiment was stamped in bold black ink at the bottom.  Perfect cards for my kids!



Now it's time to check out the entire blog hop list for even more inspiration from this release!

Avery Elle / Cupids

  I am here today and excited to share this "Cupid"ly adorable card.  With Valentine's coming next month, this will be perfect!  

I like to create clean and simple cards so keeping this along those lines, I created this background.  I wanted to use something other than "clouds" for my Cupids.  Seriously, this card was so easy to create!  


Thinking outside the box, I looked for dies that would make perfect clouds.  Boom.  Heart Frame Elle-ments!  They were all done in white over a Worn Lipstick inked background done very lightly.  


My Copic colored Cupids were adhered with foam adhesive in the clouds along with the smaller die cut hearts and tiny speech bubbles that were stamped with Raspberry Ink.  Because with any Valentine, you have to have blind and glitter!  A glitter pen was used on the Cupid wings and a few white gems were sprinkled over the card.


Tip---Remember to think outside the box and use the supplies you have!!

MFT and Friends / New Release!

I mean it.

 Have you been following along with the My Favorite Things release this month?  It's a GOOD one!  I am so excited to be sharing some new release inspiration today and later this week along with the rest of the MFT team!

Want a more simple card?  I've used the Free with $60 gift for this month.  Done in white with a silver glitter heart, it was layered over a Stitched Rectangle with a Fishtail Flag Trio for the sentiment from Essential Sentiments.  The rectangle was layered over a piece of Black and White pattern paper.  This is a perfect card for my husband!

I mean it.2


Pups and Kisses 

One more card to share using the Lots of Love Die-namics

 I have die cut the Lots of Love out of Electric Red cardstock several times and adhered together.  It was added onto a white note card that was die cut using the Stitched Strip Die-namics (sadly discontinued!).  I thought that little bit of texture was just perfect!  I kept this simple and added one of the adorable dogs from Pups & Kisses.  The tiny heart stamp on the envelope is one from an "old" MFT set.

I have a couple of cards to share using the add-ons from this month's My Monthly Hero Release!

My first card uses the Cup of Love stamp set and coordinating dies.  I started my card with clear heat embossing (with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder) the hearts from Loving Messages.  After masking off the bottom portion, Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink was blended over the embossed hearts for an emboss resist.  The cup of hearts was colored with Copic markers, die cut, and added with foam adhesive over a thin strip of black cardstock.

My second card uses the Loving Messages stamps for a very CAS one-layer card!  

With Love

I added some scoring and piercing details with my scoreboard to the top and bottom of a white top folding note card.  The sentiment was stamped in Copic friendly ink and colored with some shades of pink, red, and yellow Copics for the flowers.  I love how this turned out!
