Wplus9~Unforgettable!


Hey everyone!  Just popping in to share a card I made from Wplus9.  I used the stamp set Unforgettable, that is just so adorable!  I have seen everyone else make a card with one elephant holding a balloon, so I tried to do something I hadn't seen.  I die cut the balloons out of some paper I have been hoarding saving, and tied them with some silver thread.  Then I colored all the elephants with Copics, and cut part of each of their trunks so they could hold on to each other.  I tied the balloons the the last elephants tale. Then I added some confetti to add to the celebration. I had so much fun making this card!  I think it turned out super cute~I hope you guys do too!  The supplies and Youtube video are listed below!





Here is my Youtube Card Tutorial!

Avery Elle~Dog-Gone Awesome and Thank you card for Teachers

Hey everyone!  Today I have two cards to share using stamp sets from Avery Elle.  My first card is using the super cute stamp set, Furry Friends.  I kept it simple and colored the image with Copics, and just colored a bit of a shadow and some grass.  My second card I used the stamp set This Book and Tea Time.  I kept this card simple also, as it was a thank you card for one of my son's teacher's.  I used the Avery Elle Dotted die on both cards, lol~somehow...even though I didn't make the cards on the same day.

Simon Says Stamp~Slumber Party!

Hey everyone!  I've been loving the sunshine, and playing with my new stamp/crafty goodies.  Today I have a card to share using a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  This stamp set is adorable, and I couldn't wait to play with it!  I used distress inks to blend a night-time background, then popped up the frame with fun foam.  I colored all of the images with Copic markers.  Then paper pieced the popcorn bowl using a piece of paper from CTMH.  This is such a fun set, I'm sure my daughter will be grabbing it soon too!
