It's Your Day - Enjoy

Hi everyone!  Quick card to share with you today.  :)

I cut all of the above shapes (except the large brown circle) from the Tiny Doilies Metal Dies.  Love this set!  The circle sentiment and the ice cream cone are all from the Stampin' Around Spring stamp set

 The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Birthday Wishes stamp set.

 I inked the edges with Walnut ink and did a little pen stitching.

 I added lots of dimensionals - so fun with these dies!!

The jute twine is threaded through a small eyelet and wrapped around  the striped piece twice.

There are a lot of everyday sentiments on this set that can be used all year round!

Happy crafting!

Blog hop Time!!

Today is the last day of our week long party and the 
Blog Hop!!

This has been such a fun week and I am so excited to show you all of the new stamp sets and metal dies today!  Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments.  :)

Here is my project for today:

I cut the lion at 4" and the clouds at 4" - both from the Animal Antics Cricut cartridge.

The fun stamped sentiment is from the new Cute Critters stamp set.

 I tied Natural Jute Twine around the propeller and added lots of pen 'stitching'.  I also chalked the lion's cheek.

Everything was inked with Walnut Distress ink before assembling.

I went Pop-Dot Crazy on this card!  LOL! 

But I do love adding dimension to my cards! 

And now, what you have been waiting (patiently) for . . .

Sneak Peek Day #5 - Feel Better Soon

Welcome to Day #5 of our stamp release party.  Today is our last 'sneak peek' day, so that means the blog hop is tomorrow! Yay!  My design team has created even more awesome projects for you today.  Haven't they done a great job this week?!

I love the fun sayings on today's stamp set - perfect for anyone who is sick or just having a bad day.  Some of the ideas for these sentiments came from my awesome design team.  I hope you enjoy this set!  :)

Today's stamp set is Feel Better Soon
(All of the new stamps and metal dies will be available to order on Saturday!!)

Here is my project:

This shape card opens at the side.  I cut two of the base and then scored a fold line on the back layer.

As I was putting this post together, I couldn't find the paper where I had written the size and cartridge I cut this fun band aid from.  Sorry!! 

The peachy face makes this card so fun!  I inked everything with Walnut Distress ink. (I think I use this ink on everything!)  I also tied some Ivory jute twine around the side of the top layer.

 Now it's time for some fun projects from my fabulous design team!


Ally's card is soooo cute!  I love the papers she used and her grass is awesome!  Love the way she used this fun sentiment!

Robin's little bear is simply adorable!  I love the cute thermometer and those sweet eyes!

  She added ribbon (Milk Chocolate & Vanilla Bean) to the side.  I love her inking!


I love the sweet nurse on Gwen's gift bag!  Fantastic inking!

This is one of my favorite sentiments on this set.  Chocolate seems like a good cure to me!

Gwen attached her sentiment with Sunshine Yellow Ribbon and Twisted Teal Twine


GiGi's cute bag would make anyone feel better!  Love the cute Kitty and heat embossed sentiment!

Perfect get well gift!

GiGi used  Black and Cherries Jubilee Trendy Twine.


I love Sherrie's pretty bow combination!  She used Acorn Crinkle Ribbon and Vintage Chocolate bakers twine.


Sherrie's card is so cute!  I love the X-ray!


 The images Sherrie used with these sentiments are so fun!  Love the colors and background she used!


 Heather's card is beautiful!  I love the sewing machine image on top of the doily!

I love the tape measure ribbon paired with the crochet ribbon and blossom bakers twine!  So pretty!

Kate's sick puppy is precious!  Love the eyes and her awesome thermometer!  Such a fun card!

She used Blueberry Trendy Twine.  Love this sentiment!  :)
