Magical Unicorn Birthday Card!

Hello! I hope you are all having a wonderful summer! We're back from a little camping trip this week (check out a few pics on my IG HERE) and enjoying gorgeous weather, so that means being busy with the kids. This afternoon they had some backyard kiddie pool time and I had some crafting time sitting on the deck = win-win ;) I decided to join the Your Next Stamp Color Challenge #93 with the YNS Unicorns Rock stamp set using the colour palette you can check out at the bottom of the post. There is also a sketch you can use instead of, or in combination with, the fun colours this week! The colours in this BoBunny paper are so summery and pretty and they matched perfectly, so I started off by using a Waffle Flower Patched Layers rectangle die to cut my background.

I started off by stamping this cutie with Archival black ink on Bristol cardstock - which I just love for watercolouring! I coloured her in with Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers and cut a circle out with a Kaisercraft Stitched Circle Die. I had some extra embroidery floss around so I decided to crochet a tiny flower and add it to a strand of braided floss along with a cute tassel.

I stamped this awesome sentiment, included in the set, with black ink and then stamped the magical stars with Distress Oxides. A few fancy SpiegelMom Scraps Sequins add just a bit more bling along with some yellow Stickles. Don't forget to use the code KARLA15 to save 15% off at the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop!!

Inside, I stamped the scripty Celebrate sentiment from the Whatnot Sentiments 5 set and added a few more coordinating details.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have an awesome, sunshiny and crafty week!

Kitty Bee Designs - #122 Christmas In July!

Hi Friends! I hope you've been having a lovely week so far! I've had lots of fun creating projects lately and here's one more for you!  It's time for the midweek inspiration for Challenge #122 - Christmas In July, over at the Kitty Bee Designs Challenge Blog - Aloha Friday!

Challenge #122
Christmas In July

Super big thanks to our sponsor for this challenge
A Day for Daisies -

 The Paper Nest Dolls -

For this challenge I'm using the adorable Christmas Lights Panda digital stamp from Kitty Bee Designs, which I coloured in with coloured pencils and cut out with a stitched circle die. This little guy is so adorable, and so quick and easy to colour up! I think it's never too early to get started on Christmas cards - you all know how quick the time flies once the fall hits. I love the process of making holiday cards, so why not enjoy it while you have a little down time?!

I used clear Stickles on top of the string of lights to give a little bling and used some pretty SpiegelMom Scraps sequins.

An older Christmas sentiment stamp from my stash was perfect to stamp on another diecut circle cut from seasonal patterned paper that coordinated with the layers of papers underneath.

Inside I used an American Crafts stamp with red Archival Ink and added a snowflake diecut from my Cricut.

Emerald Creek Craft Supplies - Hit The Beach Layout!

Hi there! I am so super happy it is summer - and feeling like summer!! I'm posting over on the Emerald Creek Craft Supplies blog today with a beachy layout for our theme this month - Beach! Think sea shells, water, sand.... These photos are from a camping trip where we spent some time at the beach and it was fun to reminisce while I created! I always try to get a Selfie in while Mike and I have a minute to ourselves. Of course, there are always lots of kiddo pics, but I think it's important to get those shots of us too!

Here's a look at the process video where you can see all the gorgeous powders I used to create this fun layout!

Canvas Corp Brands - Diecut Cards with Canvas Corp Papers and Cricut!

Hello peeps! Hope all is well with you and your weekend is starting off awesome. I wanted to pop in today to share a video I have on the Canvas Corp Brands YouTube Channel - 6 Cute Card Ideas Using Cricut & Canvas Corp Papers.  Canvas Corp has tons of amazing papers, but for this project I used two paper packs - Canvas Corp Solid Printed Cardstock Rainbow Paper Collection and Canvas Corp Lots of Color Paper Collection to create 6 quick, easy and fun cards with my Cricut that I gave to my daughter's teacher as an end of the year gift. Now she'll have some handmade cards she can give out to her friends!

Here's a look at the video where you can see how I created these cute and fun cards!

I had a lot of fun creating these bright cards and I hope they'll make someone else's day special!

Kitty Bee Designs - Coffee Gift Card Holder!

Hello! I hope you’ve been having a wonderful week friends! We are finishing off the last week of school here and getting our teacher gifts together. I thought this adorable Kitty Bee Designs - Venti Coffee Panda Girl was just perfect for the front of this sweet coffee gift card holder greeting card!  

I used Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers to colour in the cute image and then I cut it out with a Waffle Flower stitched die before layering on the Tim Holtz Gift Card Holder Bag from Sizzix. The pretty, bright papers from Your Next Stamp matched the colours I used on the image and I got inspiration for the design from the June Scrap Shotz  card sketch. (You have until the end of the month to enter!) 

I cut a piece of patterned paper to create a tag and stamped on a sentiment from a Pretty Cute Stamps set with Pink Distress Oxide Ink. I’ll attach a coffee gift card to the tag with glue dots so it can easily be removed. Some pretty SpiegelMom Scraps sequins and a Little Birdie Crafts Burlap flower, altered with some shiny yellow Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, finish off the card. 

We are so thankful for the amazing teachers the girls have been blessed to have this year, and this card is just a small token of our appreciation for them!
