Congratulations - SAT dt post

Hi there!!  Popping in to share a card I created and am sharing over on the Stamp Anniething blog today.  I made this card specifically for a bridal shower I was attending using the Eloise Congratulations stamp.


I used the flower image from the stamp set and embossed it with clear embossing powder to create my background paper for the top portion of my card.  I addded some sparkle to the flowers using my Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen.


The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.  I used a border die from MFT stamps and added a couple of flowers from my stash to finish off my card.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Stamp Anniething's July Release!
Get your summer party hats on, this release is all about "chillin' and relaxing"



Violet will be available in the store today along with the other 2 stamps we showed you  this week!!
`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I was inspired by the lollipop in Violet's hand to create what is referred to as a "lollipop card".  I used the "Rosettes Zig Zag Edge" file from My Scrap Chick to create my lollipop card.  I created this card with my niece in mind.  Her birthday was July 5th and she turned 16 this year ;)


I colored my image with my copic markers.  
I hope you enjoyed our July release!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

 Have a great day!

I had some fun with the background on this card and used some stencils to cut out masks for the beach and waves.  I used various distress inks for my background and then overlayed a sunburst stencil to finish it off.  The sequins are just a mix I have in my stash.

Christmas in July - My Scrap Chick DT

***For Day 1 of Stamp Anniething Release please head over HERE***


Happy 5th of July!!  I hope you had an enjoyable holiday weekend/celebration my USA friends!!  I am sharing a Christmas in July project I created for My Scrap Chick.  The design team will be showcasing projects centered around Christmas all this week.  I am so glad to be working on some Christmas projects this far in advance as I always have such great intentions in the fall/winter to do so many and then the busyness of the season makes it hard to keep up with my goals!  Anyone else feel that way??  So for my project I created some gift bags -


well 3 of them to be exact ;) 




I had purchased a set of plain, colored gift bags some time ago from a local craft store with the intentions of creating decorated bags.  I used a few different files from My Scrap Chick for the images on the front of my bags.  

I took the images from the front of the "treat boxes" and enlarged them to fit propotionately on the front of the gift bags.  I hope I have inspired you with some holiday projects!  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Stamp Anniething's July Release!
Get your summer party hats on, this release is all about "chillin' and relaxing"




Tony will be available in the store Friday along with the other 2 stamps we show you  this week!!
`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


I decided my "Tony" should be a bit tan from hanging outside on his tree branch ;) so I chose to work with some darker skin tones.  Since he's been hanging out in the sun I decided to give him some bleached hair too!!  I created my sky background with an older cloud stencil I have and some distress inks.  




I hope you enjoyed our July release!

 Have a great day!

Coffee or Tea part 2 - MSC dt

Part 2 to my coffee and tea projects.  You can see part 1 HERE.  This time I am sharing my coffee inspired project that I am linking up to the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop  -



I used My Scrap Chick "Latte Easel Card" for my coffee themed card.  I pulled out some flower designer paper since the theme for the blog hop is summer inspired coffee/tea projects.  Here is the card from a different angle -



Thanks for stopping by today!  If you are wanting to participate in the blog hop, today is the last day to get your entries in.

Coffee or Tea?? - MSC dt

I just love coffee!!  How about you?  The smell of it makes me feel all warm and cozy and the thought of having a cup of coffee is actually relaxing to me.  I think it is because it feels luxurious to sip on a mug of coffee - as though you have all the time in the world to enjoy and savor this liquid awesome!! Now don't get me wrong, I do like tea too especially warm tea on a cold and rainy afternoon - nothing warms me up better than that!  I also love to collect tea cups and all sorts of tea service.  Which is your favorite - coffee or tea?  Since I love them both I decided to create a project that reflected each and enter them into the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

Here is my tea inspired card -


I used My Scrap Chick "Teapot Card and Envelope" set to create my card and the coordinating envelope for it.  




This will be my first entry into the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - come back later to see my coffee project :-)  Thanks for stopping by today!!
