A friend asked if I could mail her a couple of these happy dies (One Liners Happy Die Set from Papertrey Ink). While I had it out I die cut several more for myself and created 6 of these cards for my birthday stash. When you cut out the die the negatives are the HAPPY letters and the tiny fill in pieces on the A and P's. What are those called anyway? I colored the letters with a variety of Copic markers and then put them back in the die. I used 3D foam adhesive on the back to keep them in place and then attached the die to the front of my card. I added sparkle with the Spectrum Noir Clear glitter pen over top each of the letters. You could also use small pieces of colored card stock on the back side of the die. Either way works just fine!
Super simple but I think quite cute for a Birthday card. The birthday wishes words are from Altenew Floral Frame stamp set. I added a small twinkle star.
I needed to make a couple of cards for a friend that is having surgery this week. He's a Hawkeye so had to do an appropriate color scheme for him! I pulled out some wood mount stamps that I have had in my collection forever. They are oldies but goodies and ones that I still like to use to create get well cards.

A fun card that I made a while ago. I stamped the larger polka dots with Papaya ink over top of the reverse polka dot patterned paper. I used the stamp positioner to get the lanterns lined up just right on the string.
These baby projects I did a while ago & I realized that I had never shared them on my blog. The baby stamp set is from Amuse Studio called Bundle of Joy. It looks like it is still available on the Amuse Studio website. There are matching dies available but I did not use them in my projects.
On the card, I used a background stamp for two of the banners and then die cut them using the Mini Banner die set. The other two banners are die cut from Sky and Pebble Petite Hexagon card stock. For the crepe paper, I cut slits with a scissors to make a fringe border.
I received an extra fun gift from my Sis in Law, Laura this Christmas. Check out this seasonal washi tape set. I believe there is something for every season and also birthday! You could use it for your cards/envelopes as well as your planner!
A new way to store ALL of my sequins. I had a system before but it didn't hold all the sequins that I had in my collection. Here is the other container that I used for sequins. This new little beauty has room for every one of my sequins. This is an organization idea compliments of Jennifer McGuire. I ordered the storage container on Amazon and I LOVE it!
I used my PTouch label maker for each container of sequins so that if I need to buy them again I know where they came from. Some of the packets of sequins from Amuse Studio required more than one container as there were too many to fit. There are 78 containers so I had plenty of room. I guess I better get to making shaker cards to use some of these pretty sequins!
SLEIGH! Look at this beautiful sleigh that Shari gave me for Christmas. The inside was full of delightful little gifts - each one so fun! She used the Amuse Studio Poinsettia stamp set to decorate the sleigh. Isn't it stunning? Thank you Shari for another year of enjoying your talents & creativity!
Look at the beautiful details! (Hey, Laura I stole this picture from you!)
