Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hey there!

I know that St. Patty's Day was yesterday, but I wanted to share what I made with you all anyway.

It's a pretty straightforward project and I didn't do anything spectacular with it, but honestly it's so awesome all by itself, who cares!

The latest kit (see pic below) from SVG Cuts is the Feeling Lucky SVG Kit. There are so many great things about this kit and I know a lot of people are all over that Beer Stein. I've been eyeballing that Shamrock Box though. I didn't know if I was going to have the time to make it, but decided at the last minute (as in yesterday) that it must be done! Don't forget even though the holiday is past, it 's always worth adding this kit to your stash. Also, it's still free with a minimum purchase of $9.98!

So here it is...
SVG Cuts Feeling Lucky SVG Kit
I can see where a person could do a lot with this, but what I like most about this file is, you don't have to and it's still fabulous!
Ok, so here is the list of supplies and SVG Cuts elements for this project...

Happy St. Patrick's Day 
*For the life of me I can't find a link to this anywhere, but I got it at my local Joann's.
* I also go this at Joann's, but this time I could find a specific link for you. :)

Hero Arts Ink - 

Recollections Tinsel Embossing Powder - Gold
*Not my first choice, but the Ranger Gold Embossing Powder I was going to use met an untimely death 20 minutes after I got it. Bummer. This worked fine though!

Digital Die Cutting Machine:

A note about the little shamrock on top of the twine: One of the great things about Hero Arts is you can find a lot of their cut files in the Silhouette Online Store. I have been making quite a few of my own stencils lately using some clear acetate and my Silhouette Cameo 2. I had made a shamrock stencil using this Hero Arts file. Obviously when using a stencil, you use the negative space, but I couldn't bring myself to throw away the "positive" shapes. So I took one and colored it using one of my only 2 green Copic markers and then covered it in Glossy Accents. I thought it was kinda groovy and it was a little thing, but a lot of fun to do. 

I'm hoping to get another post done today. This one will feature a couple of cards I made featuring primarily Hero Arts products, because I'm entering them in the Hero Arts Nature Challenge

Oh! I haven't had a chance to use much of it yet, but if your interested, the March 2015 Noel Mignon kit is called Shine Bright and it is FABULOUS! Be sure to take a look at what's in it! The April kit will be called "Hello Darling" and from what I can see in the sneak peaks on Facebook, it will be just as groovy as the rest. Those will be available March 25th at

Until next time!

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 …

Concord & 9th - Hello Lovely

Hey folks!

It's been soo long since I've been able to share a card with you all and I'm so happy to be back! Now I know folks are busy sharing their Christmas creations and I may have one or two before Christmas, but I gotta be honest peeps, I'm just happy to be coloring again.

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 …
