Clean and Simple Gift Bag Tag

 Hello There!  Today's project is my goddess project for the Stampin' Royalty challenge blog.  This week's challenge is anything Clean and Simple (CAS).  So grab your provisions and create something CAS.  I try really hard at CAS, which is silly since it should be simple, but it always takes me way out of my comfort zone.

I needed a gift bag for one of Tate's friends birthday gift.  When looking at the gift bags at Target, I really didn't see anything that I liked, so I decided to get a plain green bag and dress it up myself.

I went straight to My Digital Studio since I needed some words and numbers.  I found my star and tag punches and made them the size I wanted, added some quick arrow cutouts and sent everything to my Cameo to cut.  Simple as that.

I embossed my star with the hexagon embossing folder, my banner was die cut using the new banner framelits, then embossed with the arrow embossing folder.  A bit of I Am Me DSP finished off the tag.  I used real red, gumball green, tangerine tango, bermuda bay, smoky slate, and night of navy.

So what do you think about this CAS gift tag?  I love the mix of MDS and an e-cutter.  Have you tried MDS yet?  I really do love it.  Remember, Sale-a-Bration is still going on, so shop now at my ONLINE STORE to get your free item.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Watercolor Birthday

Hello there!  Are you ready for a fun sketch?  The Pals Paper Arts team has a great new sketch for you this week, so take a look, grab your provisions and head on over to the PALS to link it up.

This fab new Watercolor Wonder DSP is all the rage now, with the soft colors already colored for you.  I decided that I wanted to try my own "water coloring" with my Chalk Talk stamp.  I just simply colored my stamp in a random pattern with my gumball green stamp-n-write marker and die cut it with the matching chalk talk framelit die. Easy peasy!

Love these soft colors, and when embossed with the new arrows textured embossing folder, it adds some quiet fun.  Gumball green ribbon and burlap ribbon help to add to the sketch elements.

This is the first time I have made the DSP my card base, and the colors on the inside are as pretty as the outside, just some minimal dressing up and a happy birthday stamp is all that is needed.

Simply lovely.  I think this card would work for anyone, young to old, boy to girl.  Just a reminder that the clearance rack has been updated, so shop now at my ONLINE STORE for the best selection.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Paper:  Watercolor wonder DSP, calypso coral and whisper white card stock

Sweet Baby Evan

Hello there!  Today we have a very fun challenge for you over at the Stampin' Royalty challenge blog.  It is a super cute color challenge.  Take a look at the colors, grab your provisions, then head on over to link it up.

My sister's baby shower is this weekend, and I wanted to make a few items for it.  The shower will be in sunny Florida, so I will not be able to attend, so I am sending love from a far.

Sheri loves monkeys and after I saw this monkey SVG I knew that I had to make a card with it.  My cameo really got a work out this week, but it was all worth it.

I used my wonderful SU papers; fresh prints DSP stack, Eastern Elegance DSP, and real red, island indigo, and crushed curry card stock which all cut beautifully.

Some quick words programmed in MDS, and cut so easily.  Tate wanted a "tie-bow" added to the monkey. He really loves them.  Here are a few more items that I made for the shower:

When I first saw this specific stamp in the Starburst sayings stamp set, I wondered if I would ever use it. But after looking about what else to make, this stamp just shouted to be used.  I made two badges for the first time parents to wear, how cute!

I have imported my punches from MDS into my silhouette software, so it is super easy to size them any size you need and still have our favorite items readily available.  This cute little passie dresses up the inside of the card.

There is a whole theme that the shower is based on, so I just added a bit of items to help the hostess out and to show some love.  We all can't wait to meet baby Evan.  Tate will tell anyone who will listen that he has a new baby cousin, Eben, but he's not born yet.  He points out pregnant ladies all the time now, it's so funny.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Hello there!  Today we have a fun picture challenge for you over at Stampin' Royalty.  The picture is perfect for your last minute Valentine's Day cards.  Take a look, grab your provisions, then head on over to link it up!

I pretty much pulled the colors out of the photo and went to work.  The Fresh Prints DSP stack made quick work for the background paper.  Out came my Gorgeous Grunge, Perfect Pennants, Hearts a Flutter and January Paper Pumpkin stamps to help me complete this card.

Who doesn't need a bit of silver sparkle for a 'tines day card?  Silver glimmer paper hearts and silver ribbon add a nice shine.

Here is a close up of my tag, I embossed it the beautifully baroque embossing folder, then added my layers.

Double, no triple hearts for this tag!

This card will be given to my husband Chris, I tried not to make it too girly, but heck, it's a Valentine's Day card, it is supposed to be pink and filled with hearts!  I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch to help me out.

Mackie had her 16th Birthday on Saturday, so we have been super busy, here are a few pictures of her big day:

We had a sign made from a invite that I saw on Pinterest, and decorated the yard with deco mesh bows, and tissue pom poms on the front door.  We were trying to be stealthy the night before, but she heard us, though didn't peek!

We had a family birthday dinner at the Melting Pot with my cousin Catherine.  They have always had a special bond since Mackie was a wee little one.  Tate was not impressed with the whole cook your own dinner thing and played with his kindle most of the time.

The sad news is that Mackie's Dinner Party for her friends was supposed to be tonight, but since we are supposed to be slammed with snow, we had to reschedule it, I will post those pictures after her rescheduled time.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Stamps:  Gorgeous Grunge, Perfect Pennants, Hearts a Flutter and January Paper Pumpkin stamps

Happy Love You Day!

Hello there!  Thanks for joining me for our Pals Paper Arts challenge today.  We have a fun and colorful color challenge this week, so grab your provisions and create something colorful and link it up!

Do you love this new banner punch?  Well you can get it FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration.  It makes cute quick and easy banners just perfect for any occasion.

The framed tulips embossing folder makes the perfect background.  I used a bunch of different stamps and the polka dot embossing folder to dress up my banners.

I saw this cute idea to add a word to the Starburst Saying stamp set/framelits bundle on Carrie Rhodes blog, Carrie added "valentine's" to her card, I changed it up with my bitty banners stamp set and matching framelits die.  I originally wanted to do a few layers of banners, but just ended up doing one.

The new banners framelits dies make perfect tails for my badge, and some added stitched basic gray ribbon and it is done.

I did use a bunch of different stamp sets and embossing folders on this card, so please email if you have any questions at all.  We are heading in to Mackie's 16th Birthday this weekend, so things are hopping here, but I am always happy to answer questions!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Paper Pumpkin Love

Since we are on the subject of LOVE, I wanted to share with you one of my new favorites, the Paper Pumpkin.  I love getting a kit each month in the mail.  The kit for January was one that focuses on LOVE. The colors are a bit different from traditional valentines day colors, but still fun.

I pretty much followed the instructions and the model, sometimes I love to be able to sit down and have everything done for you, it takes pressure off and is great for a quick project.  I did add some gold sequins, since I felt a few would be great.
