Bee Happy

Hi guys! I am back with a new card, and I’m pretty excited about this one! I doodled! Now, my doodling is not all that but all in all the card came together the way I envisioned it in my mind.

I’m submitting this card in the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge: Anything Goes.


I fell in love with the Paper Smooches bee when I first saw it, and I knew it would be perfect for this card. I wanted something with a pop of color since the card was going to be black and white. I really want the “Bee Mine” stamp set but because I’m so impatient I decided to go ahead and use the free digital stamp of the bee and use the “bee happy” sentiment. I cut my bees with my Cricut Explore and I printed the sentiment with my printer.Bee Happy 3

As you can see in the picture below, my bee didn’t have a perfect black outline because of the way the Cricut cut it. I used my Copic pen to go over the edges to make the outline better. Then, I added the bees to my card with foam adhesive.

I finished off the card with a couple of sequins and voila!

You’re Awesome!

Hey guys! I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day! I got exactly what I wanted, a nice, relaxed, warm day! My husband, son, and I had a great lunch and then my son and I enjoyed a movie. I came home and made a card! Plus I bought a couple more Copic Markers, what more could I ask for?! (Oh, the married life…)

So I finally made my first shaker card and I also “wrote” on my card. I don’t know if this is considered “doodling”, but I was very nervous bringing a pen anywhere near my card, I think I was more nervous with the pen than I ever was with a Copic.

I used the Paper Smooches Spectrum stamp and die set and some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

I’m entering my card in the Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes and Simon Says All Creatures Great and Small challenges.

Happy Little Hello

Hi guys! I’m so excited to show you this card I made this last weekend. This is definitely one of my favorites! I finally decided to use felt and my new pear dies! I wanted to create a small, simple card, made for no specific reason but just to say hello.

Happy Little Hello 1

I sprinkled some dots of Simply Chartreuse and Ocean Tides ink with my Ranger Water Brush. I then cut the pears out of felt and glued them with Tombow liquid glue and added some gold sequins with glossy accents.

I’m so happy with how this card turned out! I’m on the lookout for more pear shaped stamps and dies so this is not my last pear card!

Cotton Candy Birthday Card

Today I decided to play with a Paper Smooches stamp set, Spectrum, which I think is such a cute stamp set. I’ve been waiting for a good reason to use it and then I realized my niece has a birthday this month!


I have a couple of Copic markers and even though I’m not that good at coloring, I want to try to use them more often. If I’m going to color in a stamp, I’ll stamp it more than once in case I mess up on the coloring.



I also stamped and die cut a couple of clouds and stamped a star burst. I also used my new Tim Holtz stencil for the background and I finished off the card with clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and a Lawn Fawn sentiment.


Hopefully the birthday girl will love it!
