Ocean Themed Pop Up Box Card

Ocean Pop Up CardHello! Today I’m featuring an ocean-themed pop up box card that I made for my son’s birthday.  He will be 11 on June 11. I used the brand new stamp set from The Stamps of Life which just came out this month called Dolphins2Stamp. It was perfect for my ocean-themed card! My son is taking scuba diving lessons with his dad so I thought that an ocean-themed birthday card would be a perfect fit!

BananaSplit2Stamp – Stamps of Life March 2019 Kit



Today on my blog I’m sharing a card I made using products from The Stamps of Life March 2019 Card Kit and Stamp Club/Die Hard Club Kits.

First, I stamped the banana split image using the bananasplit2stamp and colored it using Copic markers. Next, I die cut it with the matching die set – bananasplit2stamp dies.

The card base I used is the Sizzix Card, Rounded Corners w/Circle Drop-ins #662742. I cut the card base from the Mint Chip card stock which came in TSOL March 2019 card kit. Using the rounded corner layering piece from the Sizzix Card, Rounded Corners w/Circle Drop-ins die, I die cut the pink and white striped patterned paper to layer on top of the card base. Next, using a stitched rectangle die, I cut another laying piece using the mint chip and white polka dot patterned paper. The paper pad in this collection is the Happy Birthday Collection.

The Happy Birthday word die was from the March 2018 Card Kit as well as the balloon die. I adhered both of them and then used the twine to tie a ribbon around the balloons. Last, I adhered the silver gems to the front of the card.


Inside the card, I used a piece of patterned paper from the Make a Wish Collection patterned paper pad. The sentiment is stamped from a stamp set that was included in the March 2019 card kit.

Sweet Friends Double Slider Surprise Birthday Card

Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends1aLawn Fawn Sweet Friends1


I really love the Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends stamp set. All of the little desserts are so cute! I made this card for my son’s birthday.

First, I stamped the images using the Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink pad and colored them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating Sweet Friends Lawn Cuts to die cut them.

Next, using the Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise die set, I die cut and put together the slider card. For video instructions on how to put together this die set, watch the Lawn Fawn tutorial here: Double Slider Surprise Instructions

The blue plaid paper is from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper collection. The red patterned paper is from the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Petite Paper Pack.

I stamped the sentiments onto the red patterned paper and cut them to size as shown. All images were adhered using double sided tape.

The balloon images were stamped from the Lawn Fawn Coaster Critters stamp set and die cut from the Coaster Critters Lawn Cuts and then colored with Spectrum Sparkle markers. The balloons on the center panel were adhered with foam tape.

A Spectrum Sparkle clear marker was used to add glitter to the three images in the center panel.

The card base is A2 size. A piece of red patterned paper was cut to size and adhered to the top of the card base. The double slider surprise piece was then adhered to the top of the A2 card base.

Below is a link to the video of my card.

Copic, Paper Nest Dolls, Stamps of Life, Valentine's Day

You’re Sweet Card using Avery with Lollipop from Paper Nest Dolls

Hello! This card can be used as a Valentine’s Day card, a birthday card, or even an everyday card. I decided to use it as a Valentine’s Day card for my daughter.

I have to begin by saying that I absolutely LOVE the stamps by the Paper Nest Dolls. They remind me of Holly Hobbie Dolls that I had as a child.

To make this card, first I cut out the card base using the Sizzix Card Scallop Drop-ins from The Stamps of Life. The red card stock was some Recollections card stock that I had in my stash that I purchased at Michaels.

The heart paper is from the Recollections “Be Mine” collection which I also purchased from Michaels.

The stamped image is the Avery with Lollipo stamp from the Paper Nest Dolls. I stamped the image using Lawn Fawn’s Premium Jet Black Ink Pad and then colored it with alcohol markers. I fuzzy cut the image and then adhered it to the card front.

The “You’re Sweet” sentiment is from a stamp set that I purchased at Michaels several years ago and unfortunately I don’t have the name of it. I stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s Premium Jet Black Ink Pad and cut it out and adhered to the card. The gems and ribbon are from my stash.

Fall Cards

Hello all!

I had a lot of fun making these fall-themed cards. For all cards below, I used Krazy Kreations outline stickers. The first two cards were made with the “Vintage Truck” outline stickers. The last two cards were made with the “Fall Pumpkins” outline stickers. I used Copic markers and Spectrum Noir markers to color the images onto glitter paper and cut them out. The printed papers used were from the Echo Park Paper Co 6×6 paper pad “Fall is in the Air.” The solid card stock that I used for the layering pieces is from the Michaels Recollections. The “Happy Fall” letters in the first two cards were cut with the Cricut. The “Happy Thanksgiving” die cut in the third card is from the Stamps of Life and the “Happy Thanksgiving” letters in the last card was cut from the Cricut.
