What’s Mew?

I’m down to the wire here on the Sugar Pea Designs Embellish It challenge! I got my order yesterday and I knew I had to ink up the adorable What’s Mew stamp set to enter a card.


Card 16 - April2014 Sugar Pea Designs Whats Mew-001


To embellish the card, I pulled out my ancient set of ribbon tags from Spellbinders. I ran some grosgrain ribbon through it and then added pearls to the top of the window and near the top of the card.  I added some glossy accents to the window.


That’s all I’ve got for tonight!

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

For the Birthday Girl

Time for MFT Monday!


I turned this week’s sketch on it’s side so I could use the adorable MFT PI Birthday Girl stamp to make a birthday card for my soon to be 4 year old niece.


Card 15 - April2014 MFT PI Birthday Girl


The fun paper is the new Jillibean Birthday Bisque 6×6 paper. I really like it the colors & patterns in this pad. I paper pieced her dress and colored the rest of her with copics.


Here is the sketch~

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!


I made my last card for this Easter earlier today for my nephew.  The bunny is cut with felt, hopefully he will like that :-) He’s not feeling well so instead of him coming here, we may go see him later today to give him his Easter goodies.


Card 14 - April2014 MFT LJD Easter Bunny


Funny story…the little green “grass”  is actually the top for the carrot.  I had no idea until today!  I used it on the calendars I made earlier in the month and it just dawned on me when I cut the carrot die cut that I hadn’t see the top for it…duh, it’s there just not what I thought it was.  I had a much easier time this time lining up the stamps on the die cuts. I think having the natural light in my room helped a lot.


Here is the inside~

Easter Greetings

Or we can call this post ” Late for Dinner” lol

I am famous for making cards at the last minute but usually it doesn’t make us late…tonight we were 15 minutes late to Easter dinner at my Mom’s. Good thing we only had to walk up the street!

I used this pretty calla lily stamp for the first time. I bought it from Taylored Expressions a year or two ago. Since it’s a bit large, I went with a square card and the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 was perfect for it. I really wanted to add Diamond Glaze to the vase but I didn’t want to carry a wet card to my Mom lol


Here is the sketch~


I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Going Grey with Scrap Creations – Easter
Papertake Weekly – Easter
Sister Act Card Challenge – Anything Goes

It’s time for dessert so I have to go! I’ll be back tomorrow with my nephew’s Easter card (which I still need to make lol!!)
