Happy Bee-Day

Happy last Friday of August everyone!  I’m here along with the Bloom Brigade from Power Poppy to share some fun inky inspiration!

I needed to add some birthday cards to my stash so I decided to pull out the “Bee Kind Toile” stamp set to create with today.

I kept my card very simple and just coloured up the beehive cake and sentiment for the focal image…


And I proceeded to decorate the inside of my card too!

Thanks for joining me today!  I hope you get some time to create too!

Frightfully Sweet

Happy Tuesday!  I have been on a crafty vacation for the last month that’s why I haven’t posted in such a long time.  But I’m back and feeling mighty crafty again!

Today I’m sharing a fun card I made for a friend.  I couldn’t resist using the new MFT “Frightfully Sweet” stamp set.  It’s the cutest Halloween themed stamp I’ve seen in a long time!

I used Distress Oxide inks to create a smooth foreground of lawn and also to create the fun sky.  I used a fun stencil to create the spooky clouds over the moon.  Isn’t that “Scary Scape Die” this cutest?

And here’s the inside of the card…

On another note, if you’re like me, you tend to take your crafty stash to crops to create with friends.  If you own as much stuff as I do, you always make sure your own supplies come home with you.  My Copic Markers are one of my biggest investments so I found the BEST way to label them with my name.  Check out this quick video…
