Tickled Pink

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I have some super cute cards and a simple tag to show you today using the Tickled Pink stamp set and thin cut dies from CTMH.


These came together in a snap with this fun and trendy stamp set. Aren't those flamingos just the cutest! I also have a card class using the same stamp set that is so fun and the cards will make any recipient smile.



Hope you are having a great weekend!

Until next time......Happy Stamping!!!

Congrats Lexi!

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Popping in today to share a card I made for my co-workers daughter who just passed her speech pathology college exam. Congrats Lexi! You are going to make a great Speech Pathologist. :)




I used one of my favorite CTMH Collections called Charlotte. This collection has beautiful soft spring colors, sorbet and pear and is so so pretty.  I watercolored the floral focal image from the Springtime Wishes stamp set and cut it out with the Springtime Wishes Thin Cuts. I popped it with 3-D tape to give it a bit more dimension. I love watercoloring. It makes me feel like a kid again.



Hope you are enjoying your Saturday and making some time this weekend to do something crafty. It's so good for the soul.  Take care!

Until next time.......

Tag You're It! Challenge #38




Tag You're It! is hosting their first challenge of the year on their blog today. Our challenge is to create a tag inspired by Tracey McNeely's adorable birthday tag below.


Anyone who reads my blog knows that I am a lover of tags and gift giving. Todays tag will go on some homemade goodies that I'm giving to a dear friend.



I took Tracey 's lead by incorporating a heart and some cute little flowers into my tag. Who doesn't like flowers and a little love to go along with them, right? 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Tag You're It! Challenge #31



Have you visited the Tag You're It Challenge Blog? If not, you're in for a real treat. My tag was inspired by a pretty Fall tag made by TYIC Designer Jeanne Jachna. I love the bright orange and gold accents. Beautiful! I love giving goodies to family and friends and am always looking for clean and simple tag ideas. The Tag You're It Challenge Blog doesn't disappoint as there are so many talented stampers with great ideas for that extra special tag.



I am not sure about your neck of the woods but Fall is definitely in the air here. At this time of the year I think of Candy Corn, M and M's and Peanuts, one of my favorite snack mixes. This sweet and salty treat is for a dear sweet friend and I thought my tag finished it off perfectly. Hope you like it!




Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Thanks Kindly PPA 256





My card today was inspired by this weeks Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA 256). This Thanks Kindly sentiment comes from one of my favorite new stamp sets called "One Big Meaning".




I love the bold colors found in the new Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack (138443) They match perfectly with the new Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape (138384). See my tip below.



Stampin Ink Tip: Add a strip of Washi Tape to the outside flap of your envelope for a real "WOW" factor!


It's all in the details

  • Start with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Whisper White card base
  • Cut Watermelon Wonder CS to 4 x 5 1/4 and Whisper White CS to 3 3/4 x 5
  • Stamp "Thanks Kindly" sentiment onto 3 3/4 x 5 Whisper White CS in Cucumber Crush Ink
  • Cut 2- 3/4 x 2 1/2 and 1 - 1 x 2 3/4 of Cherry on Top DSP. Create banners using the Triple Banner Punch
  • Cut 1/2 x 3 1/2 strip of Watermelon Wonder CS and add Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Cut flower out of Crushed Curry CS using 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch and then adhere Cucumber Crush Blossom Accent onto the center of the Crushed Curry Flower
Assemble this quick and easy card and give it to someone you LOVE!

Until next time......
