Country Gable Box

Hello stamping friends! Today I have a fun little country inspired gable box to share with you. I pulled out the wonderful Inspired By Stamping set, French Country to build my focal images. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut my box and did lots of stamping on it before assembling.

 For my script background I used Background Basics III and for the red border used the border strip in French Country. I die cut a Fancy Labels 1 die and stamped it in kraft ink. I then stamped the grapes in green and purple ink. The rooster was stamped and trimmed out.

I tied some twine around the top and added a tag from Creative Tags and trimmed it out. I think some little treat will be perfect housed in this box for a gift for someone, what do you think? I hope you have a wonderful day!

Country Scene

Hello there! Today I have a fun little scene card to share with you using a fabulous image from the Great Impressions store called Country Setting (G344). I just love this sweet scene and colored it using Copic markers.


For my background panel I covered the whole thing using the fun Chicken Wire (E96) image. My sentiment is called Roots of Hope (C298). Some twine, stitching and a bit of punched border finish off this peaceful card. I hope you like it!

Autumnal Flowers

Hello stamping friends! I don't know about you but I can hardly believe we are into the month of September. I have to admit fall is not my favorite season but I can deal with it a lot better when flowers are involved :) So I pulled out a pretty floral stamp and chose some autumn colors to ring in the season.

My flower image is called Watercolor Flowers (H255) and to color them that's just what I did using my Tombow markers. After they were colored and dry I fussy cut them and layered them together. For my sentiment I used the Tags (G483) set and to add a bit of interest and not totally let go of summer added some Flitting Butterflies (A32).

GI Monthly Challenge- Get Your Spook On


Hello! It's a new month (can you believe it?!) and that means a new challenge over at Great Impressions blog! This month is called "Get Your Spook On." Any Halloween themed card will do :)

My card is definitely more sweet than spooky but I pulled in a lot of traditional Halloween colors and sweets are a big part of the day :)  For my festive cupcake I stamped and colored the Elegant Cupcake (D413) with Copics and added the fun Flag Banner (E846) as well. My sentiment uses die cut letters and I added lots of tiny rhinestones to fancy things up.

Basket of Love

Hello stamping friends! I was in the mood to make a soft pretty card and to do a bit of watercoloring. I pulled out the beautiful Basket of Flowers set from Inspired By Stamping and got to work watercoloring my image using a no line technique.

 I stamped the basket image onto watercolor paper using a very light color ink and watercolored using my Tombow markers by laying down color on my craft mat and picking it up with a damp brush. Once my image was finished I fussy cut it and layered it on top of two die cut Fancy Labels 2 that I stamped with the coordinating Fancy Labels 2 stamp set.
  I layered some pretty paper from the Vintage Floral paper pad and added a bit of Fabric Tape along with some stitching, a wreath cut with my Silhouette Cameo and pearls. I hope you have a lovely day!

Watercolored Giraffe

Hello! I hope you are having a great day so far. Today I have a sweet baby card to share with you that I watercolored. I think this Rocking Giraffe (G396) image from Great Impressions Stamps is just the cutest! What do you think?


I stamped the Twirly Background Sm.(E845) on the base panel of my card and then added some layers and the die cut word, "baby".  A few buttons and twine finish it.

Princess Tissue Box

Hello stamping friends! My daughter is a total girly girl which I am so thankful and happy for as I am too! She loves pink, polka dots and all things princess so I thought I'd add a fun new decoration for her room by fancying up her box of tissues for her room. I pulled out the fabulous Princess set from Inspired By Stamping to get started with.

 I chose some pretty floral paper to stamp the princess dress on and trimmed it out.  I did the same thing for the wand and tiny crown. I then die cut a Fancy Labels 1 and stamped the coordinating frame in pink. I punched a tiny flower and added a rhinestone to the middle and layered them all together onto my aqua background that I had stamped the little sparkles onto in white ink.

For my polka dot top I pulled out Background Basics III and stamped the entire thing before assembling it. For my chevron borders I used the sweet Chevrons set. The template for the tissue box cover was cut using my Silhouette Cameo. A few sequins and a border with some tiny rhinestones finish my tissue box fit for a princess. :)  I hope you have a wonderful day!
