The Pink Envelope

Who knew?

When I got my Silhouette Cameo in September of last year, I got it so I could create and cut more intricate designs for my sewing projects. Sewing is my first love. I had no idea the door of creativity that would open up with this machine! Since I got it, I've used it once to cut the Rainbow Dash Cutie Mark for my daughter's Halloween costume. After that I picked out some paper to make my niece a birthday card and then somewhere along the way I discovered the SVG Cuts website and it was all over from there! Who knew you could make such amazing things out of paper! Paper people!

Two of my favorite things about sewing is the fabric and how tangible the whole thing (whatever it is I happen to be making) is when it's done. There are soo many fabrics out there. So many different colors and textures. The sky is the limit! When you've finished with your creative process and you've completed your project, you then have something tangible. You can see it, touch it, smell it (?), use it, admire it, and be proud of it. I had no idea that it would be the same way in the paper world. I've never been a scrapbooker. I'm horrible (usually) about organizing pictures. But this...I can make pumpkin carriages (more on this later), and trains, and boxes, the list goes on.

I've started this "blog", not so much to share what I make with everyone, but more as a way to document what I've done for my own happiness. Even if I'm not entirely happy with something, I always have a sense of pride and I wanted some place to put it all together. If you should happen to stop by and browse (and I hope you do) that's great! Even if you don't like what I've done I hope that I can at least inspire you to be creative in your own right.

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a …

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
