Prison Orange is not my Color | Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Design Team

Happy Saturday friends!! 

This the last day you can enter the giveaway on my YouTube channel.  Click HERE to enter! 

Today's card was sharing on the PPRS blog last week as part of my Team Post, but in case you missed it there, I'm sharing it here!  


I really was just messing around when this card came about and I LOVE it.  I was making some random backgrounds with my water colors.  To play with and to have on hand.  I was also digging around looking for my embossing stuff, I think, and I saw the felt.  And that is how the coffee mug was die cut.  It is from the PPRS Coffee Cup Die set, and the sentiment is from Riley & Co.  I also added a couple wood veneer hearts and fortunately was able to match the cardstock base perfectly!  

It turned out so well.  I'm excited!!  

Thanks for the visit today!  I am looking forward to some time in the craft cave on this cold Saturday.  We may venture out for some sledding, but I am excited to be home all day in my PJs.

Valentine Riley + Mojo Monday

Hey again friends!! My card today features Riley Moose (Couch Riley) and I am playing along with the sketch at Mojo Monday.

I just got some new papers (part of my January Clique Kit) and I thought they were fun to use for Valentine Cards.  I set up a little Valentine Card station in my craft room to have things handy for making more Valentine's this year.  I didn't send out Christmas Cards, so I am going to try to get Valentine's out instead. 

  Mojo Monday Riley & Co


I stamped Riley and colored with Copics to match the paper colors.  I used an old heart doily and some of my favorite corrugated cardstock.  I matted the image panel with frosted acetate and popped it up.  I finished it off with some embellishments and it was pretty darn cute! 

For the sketch, I actually flipped it so the doily would work better. 



This is How We Roll | Stampin Up! + Global Design Project

Hello there!!  I have a little free time this week to share some cards I made for fun.  I love playing with challenges online and I wanted to fit a couple in this week. 

I got some new Stampin Up! goodies from club this last week.  I was able to get the Glamper Greetings set this last month and I wanted to get it inky right away.  I love vintage campers and dream of being able to fix an old one up some day.  So until then, I will just use this cute lil stamp!


I stamped the camper and the background images on white with some black Archival Ink.  (Not Copic friendly I see.)  Then I stamped it again on the silver cardstock to paper piece that onto the camper.  I colored with Copics and created a scene. 

I wanted to play with the color challenge at Global Design Project this week.  Color challenges are not my fave, but I was excited this was simple.  The silver part was awesome, but I didn't have any Delightfully Dijon, so I winged it with what I did have.  (Hope that works peeps!!)

  Global Design Project

I added in a bit of gray with some leftover papers from the A Little Foxy paper pack.  I created a tab and added the sentiment on the bottom.  And finally some bling in the form of enamel dots.  Super cute card IMO. 


I hope you enjoyed!! 

I also hope you are all staying warm where you are.  We just got more snow and while it's warming up, it's still winter.  Not my favorite season.  Thanks for the visit today!! 


Do You Hear the Music? | Riley & Co Stamps

Hi all!!  Welcome back!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  The first one after a full week of the New Year! 


Today I am sharing on the Riley & Co blog along with my fellow Moosemates Heidi, Joy and Lisa!  Check out all of their great projects today!!

This is one of mine that I'm sharing on the blog today.  I loved this sentiment Shark Music, from the last release.  It just cracked me up.  I do love Jaws, and enjoy Shark Week on TV.  And I always love to hum the Jaws theme music.   


1-10 Riley

This was a super simple card to make. I used the template I created from a border die and inked up the background.  Then I heat embossed the sentiment to make it stand out.  I created a fun shark fin just by drawing it and coloring it. 

You can see the whole video here.  Enjoy!



Thanks again for visiting today!!  Make sure you visit the Riley & Co blog today for more ideas!!

And don't forget my Giveaway is still good until Saturday night!!

Faith Friday | Habakkuk 3:19

 I am so happy to be here with you guys today for my first Faith Friday of the year!!  I have set a goal to make sure that I get to these at least more than 1 time a month!!  I am still sharing on heART of Worship Sundays, but I really want to get my Faith Friday's back. 

So my plan is to either share with you what I am doing in my Bible, what is happening in my spiritual journey or some thing fun related to Bible Journaling!! 


I got the I am Strong Kit from IF for my birthday and I wanted to give into over the break.  I was so shocked as it took me to places that I didn't realize I was in!!  That would be the Lord for ya, right!!  lol.... 

So this is what I came up with for my process video, and I do share a little bit about what the Lord was doing with me through this devo. 

1-6 FF

Here is the video: 



I will be working through more of this Devo to come in the future!  I will be back Sunday for heART of Worship Sunday and then I hope to be back again next Friday for more Faith Friday goodness!!

PPRS Clear Coffee Stamp & Coffee Die Set

Creating Backgrounds with Distress Markers | Scrapbook Blessings Club

Hi all!!  This is my first official post for the new year.  I shared a Giveaway on Sunday, so if you missed it,  click HERE. 

I am on the Scrapbook Blessings Blog today sharing with you some fun goodies I got for Christmas!  Distress Crayons!  And I wanted to share with you the projects I ended up creating with the background techniques I share with you in the video.  Supplies are linked at the bottom.


1-4 A  SBC

This was the smudging technique and I love how fun it was!!  Messy but fun!  I then stamped the envelopes from the Caring Hearts stamp set and heat embossed them along with the sentiment. 

1-4 B SBC

This has to be my favorite of the techniques and really, I need more stencils so I can cerate even more!!  I added the sentiment on vellum and heat embossed it as well.  I die cut the heart beat from white paper and layered it a couple times to make it thicker. 

1-4 C SBC

And finally, I think I have finally been able to make a nice outer space background!  HA.  I could never get them before.  This is a very fun idea as well.


Here is today's video:
