Rainbows & Unicorns

Hi there!  It is birthday time around here.  Today is my awesome daughter in law's birthday.  The 17th is my youngest daughter's birthday then on the 22nd is my brothers.  I know I have a niece and a nephew thrown in there somewhere too! 

I am in the process of making my daughter in law's card but here is the card I made for my daughter.

This was my first time using any of the Distress Oxide inks and I have to say " I LOVE THEM!!!" They are so smooth when blending!
I used the Unicorn Inspiration Box from Brutus Monroe.  Many cool things in that kit.  Every month they have some awesome stuff that come in the kits.

SCC Week 2 Day 1

Ok ok so I skipped ahead a whole week haha.  I haven't finished all of my cards for week one and really wanted to start on the sketches that were posted for week two.

For this card I chose the circle card sketch.  I love the paper.  It is from Stampin Up.  I am in love with hexagons right now!


Summer Card Camp 2

I love the classes over at Very informative and great teachers.

Week 1 Day 1
For the first day they posted colors and sketches to use.

For my first card I had a robot that I purchased from Mo's Digital Pencil, that I wanted to use on my grandson's birthday card.  I used the colors posted above but had to switch the hot pink to red to make it more for a boy.  I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers.  The card stock is from one of my Simon Says Stamp monthly card kits so it is most likely Bazzil.

Birthdays, Birthdays, and still more Birthdays!

I have had a LOT of birthdays to make cards for in May and June!  I don't have too many the rest of the year and have forgotten how much I love making birthday cards.  I decided I might as well enter a couple contests with the ones I have made too. 

This card is one I made for my niece. I decided this one would be perfect to enter in the Spectrum Noir Challenge.  This month's challenge is summer and what is more summer than bright cheery colors!

The stamp is from Penny Black and colored in with Spectrum Noir markers.  The washi tape and letter stickers are from Doodlebug. 

Thanks for looking!

Craft Fair

I have a craft fair tomorrow that I have been preparing for and have made the cutest magnets. It has been busy and fun making stuff but I forget how boring it is to make 10 of one thing haha.

I cut these little guys out with my silhouette. I love how it will cut even the intricate little whiskers.

I have also been making these beautiful hot air balloon that I downloaded from

You've Got Mail!

So I have been taking a class from Studio Calico called You've Got Mail with Lisa Spangler.  We are in the second week and it is so fun to come up with new cards.  Each week there is a challenge and new tips and tricks.  One of the tips this week is using mists so I have been playing with my Heidi Swapp Color Shine mists.  Love them!

I have just made little 3x3 cards but they are sooooo cute!
I used Studio Calico's Huey's Mask, Heidi Swapp color shine primrose and mustard on Stampin Up white card stock.  The stamp set is one of the little dollar ones from JoAnn's but I am not sure who made it because I don't have the packaging for it anymore.  I am sure it is about 5 yrs old haha. For the tree branch I used Nena craft card stock and stamped the woodgrain pattern with tea dye distress ink and then also used that color to add some darker color to it.  I then just cut it to look like a tree branch.  The twine is limeade Sew Easy fancy floss from We R Memory Keepers.  The card base is Stampin Up So Saffron.

My next card is also a 3x3.  The card base is whisper white card stock from Stampin Up.  I used my little bubble mask from Studio Calico and mustard Heidi Swapp Color Shine.  The washi tape is from Simon Says Stamp's March card kit and is from My Mind's Eye. Enamel dot is from the He said She said collection by Teresa Collins.  Banner is from the Itty Bitty Banners by Stampin Up.  The die is also the same collection.

Sorry that posts have been kind of sparse lately.  Winters and me don't do so well.  Now that it has warmed up I can get back to some card making.  I did get some ribbon holders and some shelves made for my ink pads.

Here is a video of what they look like.  I should have some instructions put up in the next few days on how to make them.  Enjoy!
