I do love these funny Riley & Company sentiments so much! This one is so fitting for my best guy friend, lol! I paired it with my MFT Beer die set which is so fun!

I die cut my components and ink blended my "beer", I then stamped my sentiment on the "glass". I added some COPIC colouring for dimension. I chose one of my favourite Simon Says Stamp 3D Embossing for my background panel.


I decided to use a snow pen on the froth of the beer both in the sentiment and the topper. I glued all of my elements to the panel and finished off with some red candy hearts!

Simon Says: Clean and Simple

Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!


This week Simon Says: Clean and Simple! We are featuring always amazing Hero Arts products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!                  


I love making a CAS card, it was the style that I struggled with the most when I started crafting and the style I admired the most.  This was so much fun to make, my starting point is one of my favourite Hero Arts sentiment sets the Happy Thanks Stamp and Cut XL.

I decided to pair it with one of my favourite Altenew leaf die sets, these staples in a craft stash can be used frequently and always give a different but fun result. I used Peony and Raspberry coloured card stock with some super fun Tonic Gold Glitter. The colour of this gold is so classy to me.


Once my die cuts were all cut and glued together, I decided to use my favourite Simon Says Stamp Crystal Distortion 3D embossing folder for texture. I then added all of my elements with a mix of glue, foam tape and fun foam for added dimension. To finish off, some pretty gold foil pearls!

Simon Says: Add a Sentiment

Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!


This week Simon Says: Add a Sentimentl! We are featuring super fun Newton's Nook products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!                  


Christmas in June! I was inspired by Jenn Shurkus and her monthly Christmas cards, it is such a good idea to start ahead of time and I never had a chance to use this super cute Newton's Nook Snow Angel Puppy that I attempted to color like my Liver Roan English Springer Spaniel, Mozzie :)


I started by colouring and die cutting my image. I set it aside and dry embossed my mint panel using a Simon Says Stamp 3D embossing folder (ADORE THESE FOLDERS). I die cut a few Simon Says Stamp snowflakes and glued them to the panel. I then cut my panel down to leave a nice white border.

I die cut my Simon Says Stamp Joy die and glued it directly to my image because I added an action wobbler to the back for added fun.


To finish off, I added some sequins from my stash and a pom pom to his hat :) and, of course, some white gel pen detail to my puppy!

Simon Says: Bright and Cheerful!

 Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!


This week Simon Says: Bright and Cheerful! We are featuring always amazing Simon Says Stamp Brand Exclusive products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!                 


June is all about PRIDE and rainbows so when I saw the Bright and Cheerful theme it, of course, had to be a rainbow!

I decided to use these amazing foil and die cut Dancing Butterflies from Simon Says Stamp. The best part is that it is a four butterfly foil plate therefore, giving extra butterflies for more cards!


I did all of my foiling first and used the accompanying die and set them aside. I used my Simon Says Stamp large small dot stencil and did some rainbow ink blending on my Slimline panel. I then placed my Dancing Butterflies with the matching ink blend and decided to use this reverse sentiment strip and foil it using my Mini Mink machine.


I glued all on my Butterflies, added the sentiment strip with foam tape and to finish off these Studio Katia rainbow sequins.

I love playing with little critters and these elephants by Mama Elephant are among my favourite! I started by stamping and colouring my elephants with my Copic Markers and used the accompanying die cuts.

I added some black and white gel pen detail to my images and set them aside to work on my background panel.


I used one of my most loved cloud stencils by MFT Stamps with a rainbow selection of Distress Inks. I always love rainbow clouds! I then die cut my Mama Elephant cover plate using Tonic Black Sapphire glitter card stock and glued it to my background panel.

I then used my stamp platform to stamp my Scripty Sentiment also by Mama Elephant. I then added my critters using foam tape for dimension.


To finish off, some of my most used Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins!

Simon Says: Anything Goes featuring Clearly Besotted!

 Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!


This week Simon Says: Anything Goes! We are featuring super sweet Clearly Besotted products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!                


I love working with Critters and Clearly Besotted has some of the cutest critter stamps on the market. I choose the Sugar Rush Plushies for my card today and paired my stamps with some of this amazing HoneyBee Patterned paper from the Love Letters 6x6 paper pack.


I started by picking my paper and then colouring my critter with COPIC markers. The paper decided the color of my lollipop, which I coloured in a mix of pink and coral and added some glossy accents and some chunky glitter and unicorn dust for added effect. 

While that dried I die cut my elements for the card.  I added some Darice Foam Tape to my frame (by Whimsy Stamps) I then added my sequin mix directly on the panel then glued my frame on top.


I took my favorite friend die by Simon Says Stamp and die cut that from Glitter and coral colored card stock. I ink blended some pink ink to the top of the friends die and glued them together. I then added all of my elements to the panel!
