Hello and Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was relaxing, and if you have been affected by the Winter's Storms, I do hope you are safe, warm and well.
Today's post features a cute St. Patrick's Day Gnome, die cutting, heat embossing, stenciling, ink blending and hand coloring.
This A2 sized card was inspired by a Gina K. Designs You Tube video. The background panel was stamped with the Gina K. Music Medley background stamp and heat embossed with white powder. Using a stencil, I blended Gina K. inks over the panel to reveal areas of embossing. The focal image and scalloped border were die cut and mounted on foam pads. A ribbon, bow and gems added to complete the look.
He's a cutie patootie whose handong out shamrocks. This was fun to create and I do like how it came together. Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Hello and Happy Monday! Here we are, the start of a new week and the start of a new challenge at Pammie's Inky Pinkies. The theme this week is Anything Goes with the fun sponsor Bugaboo Stamps offering up a generous prize.
For my design team project, I couldn't resist using Snarky Stella to create a Spring Time Card. Here she is with another jewel of a snarky sentiment:
The image is the Stella Summer Blocks - I Told You So, which reminds me of myself...I'm total rubbish at gardening and living in Florida makes it even harder because everything dries and wilts very quickly in the Hot Sun.
The card measures 5.5" square and I've kept the design simple, adding Nuvo Crystal Drops in the color Carnation Pink and Glossy Accents on her glass lenses. Coloring was done with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, the designer papers are from the Crate Paper "Cute Girl" 6x6 paper pad.
Please join us at Pammie's this week for fun and inspiration. Hope to see you there. Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you had a wonderful day with your loved ones, enjoyed a nice meal and had a piece of Chocolate! Today is the final day of my Sweet & Simple Stash Busting series. I had a great time creating Valentine's cards for my family and friends using only items from my stash. My stash is a bit lighter but I still have quite a lot to use up so I may have another week of stash busting and sharing next month.
My card today started out with a white embossed background panel to which I added distress ink splatters, die cuts, scrap pieces of designer papers, a one word stamped sentiment, ribbon and card candy.

Hello and Happy Saturday! I'm back again with another stash busting project. I created this card for a swap partner and at the time of this post, I'm hoping she has received as Valentine's Day is tomorrow.

Hello and Happy Fri-YAY! It's late evening at the time of this post as the day got away from me. Had a much needed pedicure and a fab lunch with the Hubby. I did want to pop on and share the stash busting day #6 project which is another Valentine's Day card or any occasion card created with items from entirely my stash. I created the background using the smooshing technique with Distress Inks and water.

Hello and Happy Super Bowl Sunday! The Game really doesn't mean a whole lot to me other than it's being played in Tampa Bay Florida this year and I'm a Floridian. While the Hubs is watching the game, I will retreat to my crafty space and have some uninterrupted time at the crafting table.
Today is the second day of my Sweet and Simple Stash Busting makes. Today features an A2 card with an embossed backround that I splattered with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink mixed with water. I used Dollar Tree embellies, a die cut heart, Baker's Twine and sequins..all from my stash.
Another Valentine's Card for 2021 however this card could be used for any theme or occasion. Feels good to use stash items. Do you have plans to dip into your stash soon? I hope I've inspired you to so so.

Hello and Happy Saturday! I hope you and yours are well and staying healthy. Today will begin a series of Sweet and Simple Stash Busting projects I've created using..yes..you guessed it..only items from my stash. I have created the backgrounds and used embellishments to create 8 different cards. I've created them specifically for St. Valentine's Day however they could be used for any occasion.
Today's project is Day #1, featuring an A2 sized card using Dollar Tree embellies, an ink smooshed background created with Picked Raspberry, Aged Maghony and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks along with a ribbon I've had in my stash for ages...and ages being over 2 years...untouched (can you believe that?). .
