Your Heart Belongs to Me

Hello everyone!  I have been super busy this weekend but managed to get away and make a cute card for a couple of challenges.  The card and little raccoon are SVG's from Kadoodle Bug Designs.  I cut them out with my Silhouette.  The hearts are dies from My Creative Time that were cut out with my Sizzix Big Kick.  I added some buttons, chalk, twine and glossy accents.

PKS 3-D Bears

Hello everyone!  I have a little home decor project to share with you today.  It was super easy to throw together.  I found that cute little bucket at Michaels and knew I wanted to do something with it.  The adorable bear is from Peachy Keen's add on sets for January's SOTM.  I colored him with Copics and added some glossy accents to his eyes.  The hearts and flowers are dies from MCT.  I sprayed the flowers with perfect pearls but it is hard to tell in the picture.  I think this will make a perfect addition to my holiday decorations!

PKS Sketch

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!  I got my new SOTM from Peachy Keen in the mail the other day and couldn't resist playing with my new stamps!  I cut the candies with my Silhouette from the SVG's I get with the stamp set.  Although it is hard to see in the picture, I added glossy accents and glitter to the candy.  The cute little bear was colored with Copics.  I added some twine and glossy accents to the eyes and was done!  This is the sketch we had to work with:

Here is my card:

Quick & Easy Tutorial

Hello everyone!  I have two very simple cards and a tutorial to share with you today.  While browsing Pintrest, I came across a tutorial from Bugjuiced.  The instructions are on her blog but essentially all you do is cut the layers, stamp, and then pop them up!  So simple, but it makes such a cute card!  The kraft card stock layers were cut at the following sizes; 5.5 x 4", 4.5 x 3.25", and 3.5 x 2.25".  The white card stock layers were cut at the following sizes; 5.25 x 3.75", 4.25 x 3", and 3.25 x 2".  Once the layers are cut, stack the white layers together.  I used a tiny bit of adhesive to hold them in place while I stamped.  Once that's done, take apart the white layers and adhere them to the colored card stock.  Then use pop dots to adhere the layers together.  These cards I made to send overseas to my husband.  I have sent a lot of care packages but have been slacking when it comes to sending cards.  The stamp sets I used are from My Creative Time, 100% Sweetness and Lots of Love.

Lots of Peachy Keen Goodness

Hello everyone!  I have had lots of craft time this weekend!  It was fabulous!  Plus, I got happy mail from My Creative Time on Saturday and couldn't resist to play with her latest release, so cute!  The two cards I have to share with you are for Peachy Keen's Anything Goes challenge and the "use anything new" challenge at the Peachy Keen Connection. The cute little bear is an SVG from Scrapping Bug Designs.  I added some stickles, chalk and an adorable Peachy Keen face.  I made my own background paper by randomly stamping stamps from Emma's new release and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  The squares are Spellbinders which I bought black Friday and had not used yet.  It has taken me a long time to buy any but I love them!  

Pin It

For my next card, we had to use something new.  Almost everything in this card was new to me.  The circles are Spellbinders that I had not used yet, the background stamp and image stamp I bought the last time Peachy Keen had a sale.  I love that cute little cupid!  The cupid was colored with Copics and stickles were added to the cloud, wings, and halo.  The flag die came from My Creative Time.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Happy New Year

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!  I am so excited to welcome 2013, 2012 has had more than it's fair share of challenges.  I do have a card to share with you today.  I know that the holidays are officially over but it's never too soon to start for next year. :)  Plus, I could not resist playing with the files I just bought from Stinking Cute Paper Piecings.  Adorable!  I ran the scarf, snow and ski's through my Big Kick to add some texture.  I also added some stickles to the snow but it's a little hard to see in the picture.  To finish it up, I added some brads to the side, chalk, glossy accents, and doodling!
