Miss Ink Stamps Release Day - Wildflower

Hello!  It's Release Day over at Miss Ink Stamps and all of the new sets are available in the shop!

I added some Oopsy Daisies over a watercolor panel for the background and a frame from Oh Happy Day!

National Coffee Day With A Jillian Vance Design!

A Jillian Vance Design is sponsoring the National Coffee Day Hop!

We've got three cards over there including this one!  I started this one with a butterfly gel print that I added some Glitz Glitter Gel and Paste to with the Ornamental Octagon Stencil.

I cut the cup from some gold cardstock and then added the stitched hearts to it with a die from the same set.  And finally that steam... my very favorite steam... from some sparkly white cardstock.

Finally a sentiment from Brewed to Perfection stamped on one of the strips from the Sentiment Strips set.

That's the details for my card!  Be sure to hop on over to A Jillian Vance Design for your chance to win a caffeinated stamp set!

Crafty Elves Countdown to Christmas - September 2023 Edition

Welcome back!  It's a new month and we're back with the Christmas cards we made this month!

I actually made three cards using an adorable set from My Favorite Things Dino-Mite Christmas stamp set!  It's retired, but I did find one in stock over at the Frantic Stamper if you find you must have it!

I also used my current favorite sheet of design paper from Vicki Boutin.  I picked up a couple of the sheets at my local scrapbook store, Scraps of Love and if they still have some when I go back I'm gonna get more for sure!  One side is this lovely pink snowflake and the other...

... is this gorgeous stripe.. just yum!  I used a favorite frame from Avery Elle ... also retired... and also available over at Frantic Stamper.  Along with some dies from the shop over at A Jillian Vance Design.

I'm just in love with these dinos and that paper!

That's me for today!  I have a winner from last month's giveaway!

Denise Bryant from right here on the blog is the winner... Denise email me your address so I am sure I have it right!

Thanks to everyone!  Come again soon!

Now be sure to head on over to my fellow Crafty Elves places, Debra and Michael AND Pam Kline Stang is joining us too!

You're Simply Fabulous! - Your Paper Insider

Hi!  I had a play with some of the gorgeous papers from the most recent Your Paper Insider quarterly subscription box.

That beautiful shimmery Beauty Pink Silk... and gorgeous Black Diamond Glitter...chef's kiss!  The Hi is from Erin Lee Creative and the tulips are from Waffle Flower Crafts.  I added some Transfer Gel Duo to the pink with the Tiki Tiles Stencil from Miss Ink Stamps and then used hand pressure to apply Magical Shattered Glass Deco Foil while it was tacky.

I added a sentiment from my stash to finish it off.

Thank you so much for stopping!  Hope you'll come again soon!
