Fable Friends - Sweet Baby

When I saw the Fable Friends stamp set in the new 2019 Occasions catalog, I knew it would be on my "A" list. This stamp set has so many cute animal stamps, as well as sentiments. This set can be used for Easter, Baby, Children's, Spring and All Occasion cards.

Look at this sweet, sweet Rabbit, is he not the cutest?!! I thought this would make a perfect baby enclosure card. I stamped the Rabbit with Staz On ink on Whisper White cardstock. My favorite way to color an image is with a Blender Pen and our Classic Stampin' ink pads. It is so relaxing, great therapy. That's how this little cutie was colored. 
The sentiment, Sweet Baby, is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. Talk about getting a lot of sentiment stamps!
I teamed the small card with the Balmy Blue Gingham Gala DSP. On the inside is a piece of Whisper White cardstock with three rows of the Gingham Gala at the bottom. I continued with the Gingham on the Whisper White 3" x 3" envelope flap.
I hope you liked today's card. Thanks so much for stopping by, be sure to leave me a comment!

Valentine's Mini Mailbox Treat Holder

Hi Stampers! Today, I wanted to share with you these super cute Valentine's Mini Mailboxes that I made for our grandchildren. We have three grands under the age of 2 1/2 but wanted to make them something special from Mimi and Pops!!! I have three Dove milk chocolate treats inside (yummy).

I stamped "love you" on the inside of the flap for an added surprise, when the mailbox is opened. 

This stamp is from the Forever Lovely stamp set. A gorgeous stamp set with the matching Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies! This bundle is a keeper!

The mailbox flag was made from the Classic Label Punch. I stamped "My Love" from the Forever Lovely stamp set and die cut it from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies. The box inside is made with Thick Whisper White cardstock, for added stability. 

I used the Hardwood background stamp on Whisper White cardstock and stamped with different colors. Sponged a little ink over the stamping. I tried using some Designer Series Paper but depending on the patterns, it would be upside down on one side if it wasn't an overall pattern. My inspiration came from Amanda Frankel's YouTube video. Thanks Amanda for the inspiration!

These are so fun to make, I plan on making a bunch in different colors! I hope you are inspired to make a few yourself. These would be really sweet RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) treats for folks to brighten their day. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Valentine's Day Hershey's Nugget Cake

It has been a while since I have posted anything and wanted to get back in the swing of things! For today's post, I made a sweet, three-tiered Hershey's Nugget Cake. Over the Christmas holiday, I did a Craft Fair and sold several of these little beauties and then had orders to make more!!!

To wrap the Hershey's Nuggets on the top and bottom layers, I used the beautiful, All My Love Designer Series Paper. For the middle layer, I stamped the Hearts from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink on Whisper White cardstock. The Ribbon on the middle layer is the Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack. Isn't it gorgeous?!!

The sentiment was stamped from the Meant to Be stamp set. I used a few dies from the coordinating, Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies. All of these products are from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. Hope you like my Happy Valentine's Nugget Cake. Thanks so much for stopping by, would love for you to leave me a comment! Happy Stamping!

Tranquil Tulips #FF0004

This card screams Spring to me. I love flowers and thought I would enter a new challenge that a few stamping friends have put together, Festive Friday Challenge, a Papercrafting Challenge. The challenges are twice a month and you can earn points for entering a challenge that then can be redeemed for Stampin' Up! product. How great is that?!!
I am fortunate to be a part of a group of ladies that crochet and knit items for charity, as well as members of our church that are going through a difficult time. I made this card to go along with a crocheted Lapghan, someone special will be receiving soon.
I hope you are having a lovely spring. Here, in Tennessee, we had a few warm days and then we were back to the cooler temperatures. The Forsythia is blooming, a sure harbinger of spring!

Here, with a matching envelope.

For this challenge, #FF0004, I used Stampin' Up! Watercolor Paper for my background, then stamped these cute Tulips. The stamp set, Tranquil Tulips, is a Hostess set from the Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. I can see myself getting a lot of mileage from this stamp set, it is a keeper. The sentiment is from Beautiful Day stamp set.
