you're the greatest...

Hi again!  I'm back with another guest post for The Ton Stamps.   I am a CAS stamper and usually go for the quick stamping stamps.  When I see black and white pandas....aside from the fact that they are super cute....they don't need any coloring and that is right up my alley!  So today, I have created a quick and easy card, highlighting these adorable pandas from the set called Panda Can't Even....


I used a light gray cardstock for the base and then layered a heart die with foam tape.  I stamped and fussy cut the bears and added them to the card with more foam tape for dimension.  Next, I added in the sentiment on a banner die.  The last detail I added was the red heart image from the set.  Easy peasy!


This set, Panda Can't Even, includes 7 of the most adorable panda images,  along with sentiments in a gorgeous font, so the possibilities are endless.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today.  I will stop back in soon.  Have a great day!


Creative Construction with Blueprints...

Every month over at MFT, we get together and have a challenge using the Blueprints dies called Creative Construction with Blueprints.  This is one of my favorite posts each month because I am a huge fan of the Blueprints.  I love an easy card.  When I can use just a few elements and put them together to create a clean and simple card....I'm in.  The Blueprint dies help do just that.  One of my favorite sets is Blueprints 18.  There are 2 panels in this set with a diagonal card front cut and with those 2 panels, the possibilities are endless.  Using the bottom panel, I created this super easy card...


First, I cut the background panel in white.  Next, I took the grass die and cut it out and then used that same diagonal panel to cut the bottom edge of the grass, so it fits along the bottom edge of the white panel perfectly.  I added the sentiment along the bottom and the popped up the panda on foam tape.  The panda, sentient and bambo trees are all from the set Happy Panda and their coordinating dies.  And really?  Thats it!  So quick and simple!


There will lots more Blueprints creations over at the MFT blog.  Stop over there and check it out!  So glad you stopped in today!


Pretty Presents...

Hey there!  I have 2 cards here today, with one design....and of course, clean and simple all using elements from Queen and Company!

Both cards use all the elements from the June Kit...Pretty Presents.  This first card, I created a shaker box, using a white gift on a white background, so those toppings inside the box would pop!  I layered them onto the card base with a piece of green pattered paper from the pack included in the kit.


This next card also uses the patterned paper from the kit with the white on white theme, but this time, I used the shaker box foam and dies, just to create a 3D gift.  I love how easy it is to create a shaker box with this kit, but it also works for different looks.  I added the black cut outs down inside the box for a fun little detail.  


Hope you are enjoying your Pretty Presents kit.  If you don't have one, now is a great time to shop!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

June 2017 MFT Card Kit

I took the scalloped card front die from Blueprints 27 and the created a scalloped envelope for the card front.  I attached that to a ombre, ink blended card base.  Next, I took candles from the Make a Wish set and cut them out using patterned paper.  I popped one of them up on foam tape for a dimensional look.  I finished this card off with a pink sentiment and some glossy accents/glitter on the hearts.

Welcome to the MFT Card Kit Countdown!  The June Kit is called Birthday Wishes card kit...and I love it!!

I have grabbed some of my favorite colors along with a bunch of white space and created this fun little CAS card....

June 2017 MFT Card Kit

I used the scalloped frame to create the card front.  I did a little watercoloring and then die cut the "hello" (not included in the kit).  At this point, I pulled out the dies from the kit and created the little heart confetti filled, vellum envelope.  I sealed it up and then added the heart die cut, also from the kit dies, and covered it with glossy cents and glitter for some sparkle. 

June 2017 MFT Card Kit

Definitely a quick and simple card!  And that envelope die from the kit?  SO much fun!!  Head on over to the MFT blog to see some more samples with this months kit.  I will be back tomorrow with another card.  Have a great day!
