Anything But A Card…

Hi there and welcome to this weeks Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 88

This weeks challenge was a bit difficult as I only really know how to make cards.  I had to reply on some special dies I have from Lawn Fawn.  I used the gift card die they offered in their winter release.  It is pretty handy and has a variety of great sentiments as you can see below.  I also used some MFT dies for the flowers and MFT paper for the card holders!  Enjoy this weeks challenge and I look forward to see yours!

What is your favorite stamp company?

Hi everyone! I thought I would stop by and ask a simple question.

What is your favorite stamp company?

I have to say there are two stamp companies that I have really love.  Those companies are Lawn Fawn and MFT Stamps.  Both companies have some of the most clever stamps and both companies offer great dies.  Even more so they both have quality paper and ink.

Share your thoughts.  I would love to hear more about your favorite stamp company!



Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #87

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great week! It got up to 72 degree today in Chicago!  It was amazing! I definitely had to take advantage of the shorts weather while it is here!

This weeks project is all bout kindness.  As fellow card makers I think we know a thing or two about kindness because it is one of the many reasons we do what we do! Just remember that kindness is what makes us great people, and being kind to some of the most unpleasant people does make a difference in this world.

And this is my weeks card:

This week I used The Ton’s Orchid stamp set to make this card.  I layered it with several different purples.  The frame is made with the small Lawn Fawn stitched frame set.  Both of the frames and the flowers are all proper up on 3M foam tape to add some dimension to the card.  Now that I look at this photo, I notice there is no dirt in the flower pot! Whoopsies! The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I added a few crystal sequins to add a bit of sparkle.

This card is a appropriate today as I should be sending it to myself because I myself had surgery! But this beauty will go to someone who needs it more!

I hope you all have a great week and remember to spread kindness!


Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #86

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend! Welcome to this weeks Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge.

Here is this weeks challenge!


And here is my card.  While I know the challenge states peach, all I really had to use was orange.

Here is the card:

It is a CASE card that I took from the My Favorite Things monthly kit from two months ago.  I did a few different things such as using the wonky rectangle die cute and I also ran that panel through an embossing folder to add a little texture.  I then placed it on top of some polka dot paper.  Relatively simple card, but will definitely make someone smile!

Hope you have a great week and I look forward to seeing your creations this week!


Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #85

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a great week.  I am currently writing up this blog entry in the Seattle airport.  Can we just say how much we love rain?  Wow, it rained the WHOLE TIME I WAS HERE.  I am not sure I could ever live here really.  I will take Chicago’s 9 month winters any day!  At least we get some sun every now and then.

This weeks challenge is Love.
