Serenity Now!

Happy Thursday!  Well I’m not sure if my mojo has fully returned but I was able to put a card that I am happy with together last night.  Maybe taking a few days off was not as bad as I thought.  A little rest is always good.  🙂 

I have had the image coloured for a little while not sure what I wanted to do with it, until I saw this weeks Sparkle Creations challenge #4, use your favorite embellishment!  I have a bunch of my faves on this card twine, Prima flower, button, glitter and bling! 

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamps: Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, MFT sentiment  Ink: Amuse, Copic markers  Accessories: Prima flower, Button, Rhinestones, Spica glitter pen, Twine, Cuttlebug, nesties.

I have a little shopping to get done for the weekend and then I plan on relaxing!  Maybe if I am lucky I will get a little stamping in before Big Brother tonite. 

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Be Inspired ~ Cuttlebug Challenge 19

Happy Wednesday!  Today’s Challenge over on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog  is to make an embossed acetate card.


I embossed the acetate with the D’vine Swirl folder and the large dots from the Just My Type border set.  I then traced the swirl design with my Sakura quickie glue pen, let it dry and then applied yellow Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter. 

I stamped the cupcake base and then ran it through the Cuttlebug with the spots and dots folder, cut it out and pieced it back onto the image.  I coloured the cupcake with Copic markers, used Liquid Applique for the icing and red Liquid Pearls for the cherry on top.  I then cut 3 scalloped circles with Nestabilities and matted the image.  To finish the card I tied on the ribbon.

Paper:Bazzill, Acetate  Stamp: My Favorite Things (It’s a cupcake kind of day!)  Ink: Versafine  Accessories:Cuttlebug (D’vine Swirls, Just My Type, Spots and Dots), Nestabilities (Small Scalloped Circles), Sakura Quickie Glue pen, Glitter Ritz (Yellow micro fine glitter), Copic markers, Liquid Applique, Liquid Pearls (Red), Yellow ribbon.

I can’t wait to see what  everyone does  for this weeks challenge!  Take a minute and head on over to the Cuttlebug Challenge  and see what all of the other amazing DT members have done!

Have a great day, and as always thanks for stopping by!


Sweet Treat

Happy Thursday!  I am sorry for being a bad blogger the last little while, life just gets crazy sometimes!  I just hope that things get back to normal around here soon.  I made this card a few days ago for the Taylored Expressions cupcake challenge, and just got a chance today to share it with you.


I stamped the image with Memento ink and coloured it with Copic markers I then added a bit of liquid glass to the cherry and liquid applique for the icing.  It seemed to be missing something so I finished it off with a few mini rhinestones for the sprinkles on top!  The rest of the card was very easy and used my fave colours right now.

Paper: Basic Grey (Bittersweet), Bazzill  Stamp: My Favorite Things (It’s a Cupcake kind of day! )  Ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black)  Accessories: Copic Markers, Liquid Applique, Liquid glass, Kaiser pearls (Chocolate), Mini rhinestones, Organdy ribbon (pink), pop dots.

I have another busy day, but I hope to get a little bit of play time in.  I hope that you all have a great day!  Thanks for stopping by.  😀
