Friday Faves 1/5/18

Years ago I used to do Friday Faves, not sure I will make it a regular feature again but do it when I have things to share



New Crafty Products ~ 

C.C. Designs has released the cutest doggy stamp set! Lots of cute samples in this post.

Reverse Confetti has a new release coming out on Monday and I spotted (haha) this adorable little leopard today!


Cards that caught my eye ~

This pretty monochromatic blue winter card

JanTink posted the most amazing card today. Seriously jaw dropping!

Love the silhouette stamping on this card and the rainbow background!

Such a pretty floral CAS card!


Thanks for stopping by!

Zoo Babies Congratulations



In my neverending quest to use my stash, I still have a lot of matchup lists and personal challenges to work through. I used the random number generator to put together a monthly list of different challenges to work on.


Today’s card is a Stampin’ Up card using Zoo Babies and SCS Card Sketch 675. I am linking this card to the New Beginnings challenge at Animal Friends. Perfect challenge for this stamp set.



Here is the sketch I used ~

Happy New Year!

Well hello and Happy 2018!!


In 2017, crafting was low on the priority list for me. Hoping to change that in 2018 and make lots of cards and layouts. Wish me luck! One of my craft groups proposed doing 365 cards this year and since I scrapbook as well, my goal is 365 projects.


Kicking off the new year with a card using PTI’s Happy New Year stamp set, inked up for the first time today. I thought I would try my hand at a collage type card. After stamping all the images, I ran my panel through the Big Shot using Laserbeams embossing folder from Spellbinders.

I am linking this card to the Anything Goes challenge at Use Your Stuff.


I hope everyone has had a great first day of the new year. I’ll be back with another card soon.

Stamps: PTI Happy New Year

Ink: Ranger Archival Jet Black, SU Crushed Curry

Good morning!


Here is the other card I made yesterday using Foxy Friends. I really like how this one came out!


I used a couple papers from the Wood Textures DSP pack and embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.



The images were stamped and then cut out with my Scan N Cut. Instead of adding a sentiment, I decided to add some linen thread.


Have a great day!
