Inspired By - H is for Hoppy!

Hello stamping friends! Welcome back - and happy Thursday!! 
It is time for another Inspired By challenge - this week, we are hopping right along with an awesome cue card to inspire you!

How does this cue card inspire you? It just shouts SPRING to me - and the sweet little bunny caught my eye! Here is what I designed for you!

I used a fun little stamp set from Simon Says Stamp - called "Some Bunny"  and all of the paper pieces I used in my design were paper scraps from my desk - every thing from Stampin Up to Echo Park. :) I used and unbranded oval die to create that "egg" layer. I think my little grandson, Knox will be getting this card as part of his Easter surprise. He deserves a sweet little treat!
It's time for YOU to play along with us! Link up your paper craft creation over on our challenge - you can find the link HERE!!
I would LoVe if you let me know you stopped by ~ leave me some love below!

Paper Craft Crew #284

Welcome back to another Paper Craft Crew challenge!
We have a fun sketch for you this week! Check out what I created!

This design has so many layers! I dug into my Stampin Up stash and used the stamp set Falling Flower and May Flowers framelits to create some fun blooms and greenery! A quick bit of colouring with my Zigs worked wonders ! 
The tag was created using a My Favourite Things tag die - the shimmery paper has been stamped using SU's Beautiful You stamp set! I also used the Woodgrain Texture paper with a piece of fun red checked paper from SEI and a piece of Chevron woodman paper from CTMH's Fundamentals kit.  That burlap trim was in my stash and sadly... it was the last of it. I really wish I could find more!

Verve Diva Inspirations March Challenge

Sunday Funday - today was a day to play! Heavenly!  I didn't even get dressed today! It was glorious! To be able to stay in my comfy p.j's all day was a total treat - and while I would love to say I got to craft the day away in my studio, I found some balance with a bit of chores like laundry, mopping floors, and dusting. 
I had some crafty free-time and decided to play with some of my spring goodies in my stash! 
I designed this super-sweet tag today for the Verve March challenge!

 ( I am SO SO happy they are bringing back their monthly inspiration challenges - because they were one of my FAVES!) 
I decided for this project I wanted to make a fun spring tag! I found a sweet little stamp from Unity called Little Bunny For You - and inked him up, using minimal colouring with my Zigs! I added a wee bit of Fun Stampers Journey silks for that vibrant touch of yellow! I really wanted to  play with some stencilling,  so I chose a Tim Holtz stencil from the #26 collection. I used di…

Inspired By - Get Lucky!

Hello lovely people!
This week has been a DOOZY! We have had storms brewing - wind and snow - just a typical day here on the Prairies! It has got to end soon, I just know it!
This week the Inspired By Design Team is feeling LUCKY 🍀
Here's our cue card.... and my fun little project!

I used a fun little sticker that Laurel Seabrook sent me - I literally attached it to a piece of luscious green scrap paper on my desk from an earlier project (see?! Never throw ANYTHING away! haha)  I also had a scrap of some fun Little Yellow Bicycle paper in the bottom of my scrap bin! My little pot of gold was created using Stampin Up!'s Curvy Keepsake die - punched a circle out and adhered some clear acetate to create the window  and show-off those yummy treats! I used a heart punch for the sweet little shamrock! Easy-peasy! 
Now it's your turn - I hope our cue card inspires you to make some crafty goodness! Be  sure to link it up to our challenge!

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #283

We have made it to Wednesday! Welcome to another Paper Craft Crew challenge!
This week we are featuring a sketch for you for inspiration, and I cannot wait to show you what I have designed! 

I had SO MUCH fun making this card! Why?! - because LOOK. AT. IT! That paper from Stampin Up! is called Pick A Pattern - and all of those little critters are adorable! I paired this up with the Pieces and Patterns stamp set - and a little help with my old reliable SU set called Gorgeous Grunge. 
I dug in to my stash for some coordinating washi tape and papers in Crushed Curry, Tip Top Taupe, and Emerald Envy and I used a card base of Delightful Dijon (it's sooooooo close - honestly) 
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I can't wait to see what you create with this sketch! Click on the image to go to the PCC challenge!

Four-Legged Friends

Hello again, friends! It is Tuesday - and this week - over at Stamp Ink Paper we are dedicating this to our four-legged friends!

This was alot of fun - because I love my doggies - and I have a new puppy in the house! Meet little Miss Ruckus!

She looks sweet and innocent - but, she is living up to her name! 😉
This sweet little rescue is slowly working her way into our older dog's heart.  Chaos (who also lives up to his name) is beginning to warm up to this  little gem. In time I am sure they will  become BEST PALS.

Here is my design!

I think this almost could pass for my fur babies! Haha I dug into my Paper Smooches supplies - the stamp set is called Woofers and Tweeters and the little heart tag was created using the Dog Icons dies for the paw print.  (The heart shape was created using a punch) 
Stamp Ink Paper has some awesome weekly challenges! Go to their page HERE! Thanks for stopping by!
