Mermazing Kitties


I've got another card for the Beach/Summer Theme card challenge for Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenges today!
I made a shaker card using the new Newton kitty mermaids and I kind of love it ♥
No underwater shaker card is ever complete (in my mind) without sand and tiny seashells! (also, I have a bit of a habit of sneaking Nemo and Dory into every ocean scene I make with fish!)

There's still a week left to play along with this challenge for the chance to win $20 in store credit to the Newton's Nook online store (which would be really handy to win since it's a release week!)

Have a fantastic day!

Inky Paws Challenge #78

Hello and happy Monday!

Today's the start of a super fun new summer or beach themed challenge for the Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge Blog!
I'm really happy with how this card turned out ♥

I used Ranger Texture Paste and the Newton's Nook Designs Seashells Stencil on a clear cardbase and then inked up all of my seashells with Distress Oxide inks and a bunch of masking.

I used the Newton's Nook frames and flag die set to make the scalloped card inside and I ink blended an ombre background with the Newton's Nook Waves stencil. After I inked up all of my seashells and bubbles I added some fun accents with Nuvo Crystal Drops, Wink of Stella shimmer pen, and Glossy Accents. I finished off the card by stamping my sentiment from the Newton's Nook Tranquil Tides Stamp set on a die cut flag and wrapping some twine around it ♥

I've been working so hard on catching up on picture printing for my project life albums lately. I was super behind and I decided to print them all before I get back to decorating any, I'm so close to being caught up now! I started in April (i think?) and I've printed 5 full albums, I'm mostly done with 6 (just two months to print) and then I have only one album left!!! (and two December Daily albums, but those can wait a little bit longer...) The album I'm currently printing is last year's (2017) and it's insane to see how much the girls have grown in the last year, especially Emma!

Anyways, please come check out all of the fun inspiration for this challenge at the Inky Paws Challenge Blog and play along with us!
have a lovely week!

Inky Paws Challenge #77 reminder

hi there! I'm popping in with a reminder to go and make a card for the Inky Paws Challenge #77! It's a super fun sketch and you have a week left to enter!

Here's my second card for the sketch:

I masked off the rectangle for my lacy floral stenciling and then i tucked that fun strip of die cut grass border under my butterfly panel, simple but pretty!

I stayed up super late all weekend, printing project life pictures (i've made so much progress this year!) and labeling new stamps and dies ♥ but now I feel like i need a weekend to recover from my weekend. *yawn*

Have a great day!

Inky Paws Challenge #77 aloha!

Good morning and happy Monday!

I've got a tropical card this morning to kick off a new Inky Paws Challenge! We've got a sketch challenge full of fun layers (although my background took so much work that I cheated a bit with my layers and just framed them off with twine so I wouldn't have to cover up my yummy leaves!)

I stenciled the Tropical Leaves stencil with Texture Paste on a kraft card base and then after it dried I put the stencil back and masked off each little leaf one at a time to blend the pink, blue and purple distress oxide inks but i love love love how it turned out! Stencils are my new BFF ♥
also, how adorable is that Newton stamp!?

Anyways, come play along with us for the sketch challenge and I'll be back tomorrow with something fun to share!

Have a lovely day!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 33 Card


I've got a really fun card today to share for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. The challenge was to use "fun folds" so i made a ... I guess you'd call it a Z - fold card? ... with a bit of a stair step to it and filled it with some fairy fun!

 Whenever I have an image where the back is going to be visible, (on a pop up card like this or on a clear card...) I always try to make sure the back is tidy too, so I stamped all of my images with a mirror image stamp so i could color both of them and then glue them back to back wherever they stuck up on my card.

I'm off to DC this weekend to see Hamilton at the Kennedy Center!!!! 😍😍😍😍

I'll be back on Monday with a card to kick off the next Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge! Have a fantastic weekend!

running shoe!


I've got a card I made for my dad to share today!

We're both runners and we ran a full marathon (26.2 miles!) together this January so I thought this stamp set was perfect to use for him!

I really wanted a subtle monochromatic splatter on my gray cardstock so I inked it up with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink and then splattered it with water and it turned out perfectly!

I have a bunch of Christmas cards I never shared last Christmas, should I blog them now for some Christmas in July posts or should I save them for later this year?

also, I tried out a photo with "props" with my running shoes and medals, I like it sometimes when other bloggers use props but i feel kind of ridiculous with them, thoughts?
