Hi everyone!
We have set aside a day to share some fun themed projects! This month’s theme is hearts!
Have fun checking out what our Designers have made today. Today's participants can be found on the Impression Obsession Blog.
For my card today I decided to use the new Floral Hearts stamp along with Choose Love sentiment stamp.
To make the card stamp the image on watercolor paper few times with black ink to achieve good coverage. Emboss with Clear embossing powder and watercolor. Cut it down to 4" x 5 1/4". Set aside. Stamp sentiment on black card stock and emboss in white, fussy cut it and adhere to the image panel using foam tape. Adhere the panel using craft foam to a top folding black note card! Simple and Easy!

Scrappy Tails: Have a Blessed Easter

Hi everyone!
Today I am sharing super fun and brigs card using the new set Timeless Tulips and the
coordinating dies. I decided to combine the image from this set with a sentiment from the Easter Lilies
To make the card start by stamping the image with tulips in a vase on watercolor paper using black ink. I use my stamping positioning tool especially when stamping on watercolor paper, so that way I can
stamp multiple times to get a nice coverage on the watercolor paper. Once stamped emboss using clear
embossing powder. Watercolor the image and add details with white gel pen.
Die cut it using the coordinating die and set aside.


For the background I decided to use black plaid dry embossed card stock. Cut your background down to
4” x 5 1/4”. Stamp the sentiment using embossing ink onto vellum and emboss it in white. Trim the strip to size. However make sure it’s longer than 4” that way you can wrap it around your panel and avoid adhesive showing on the front. Tape the vellum on the back of the panel. Adhere the image using foam tape. Make top folding note card from hot pink card stock and adhere the assembled panel using craft foam.

 Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you have an amazing day!

Spellbinders: Expressions of Love

Hi everyone!
Today I am sharing a fun card using the Spellbinders Expressions of Love collection. I was playing around on my desk and decided to foil on acetate and I was surprised by the greatness of the results. I used heat resistant acetate and the Scattered Hearts background to make the shaker window! 
For the backing of the shaker card I used Peony card stock and ink blended some Ultra Pink ink on the top to create ombre effect.
I used the Essentials Rectangles to create the frame for the shaker card. All the foil and sparkle makes is hard to photograph. 
For the car I used Sunday Sunset Drive die set along with Sunday drive (which is the set for the base of the car).
All the supplies are listed on the bottom of this post

  Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing ideas using the January  Spellbinders Card kit of the month. I love this kit and the die that comes in the kit is so cute. There are dies to make the kitty I used on two of my cards below. I used only items from the kit with addition of piece of vellum and ink and embossing powder for the sentiments and the cheeks of the white kitty! The cards just make themselves. Also the die set has dies that coordinate with the stamp set, including outline for the So Lucky stamp!

So without further delay, here are my samples!

Happy Birthday to The Rabbit Hole Designs + Giveaway

Hi everyone! 
Today the MISTI design team is helping The Rabbit Hole Designs celebrate their 2nd Birthday. If you are a coffee lover, or love snarky sentiments , or even cure images you should definitely check them out!!! 
And we are celebrating with a giveaway! Both My Sweet Petunia and The Rabbit Hole Designs are giving away $50 gift certificates!
So...let's the party started with a rabbit or two. This adorable image  is part of their new release today along with another set ( can you guess what's the theme is....it has a cake image!!!) and 3 new stencils. I used the Open Heart stencil for my card.

To make my card I started by stamping the image using Versamark CLair ink onto watercolor paper. Using my MISTI I stamped several time to get nice ink coverage. Once stamped embossed with Ultra Fine Clear embossing powder. Watercolored the image using my Karin markers and set aside. 
In the next step I used the Open Heart stencil, Cotton Tail Blending Brushes and Oxide ink pads (Picked Raspberry, Fosilized Amber and Abandoned Coral) to create the background. I used Pixie Spray to secure the stencil to my card stock. Once the background was done I trimmed the panel down to 4" x 5 1/4", trimmed the image to size and adhered to the background. 
Stamped sentiment on black card stock, embossed in white, fuzzy cut it and adhered to the panel.
To finish off the card I used craft foam to adhere the panel to top folding white note card. 
Make sure you visit My Sweet Petunia and The Rabbit Hole Designs for list of designers for this celebration!!!

Scrappy Tails: Happy Spring - Sneak Peek

 Hi everyone! 

Happy Tuesday! I am super thrilled to be joining the Scrappy Tails Design team (I will however go silent in February, as I have surgery at the end of this month). You should go check it out. It's a new(ish) stamp company and the owner (and designer) Sabrina is super sweet. 

Today I am excited to share a peek of the new release coming out at the end of this week and it's a super fun one.

I am featuring two new products that are coming out: “Pop-up Basket die” and “Easter Lilies” stamp set and the coordinating dies. However you will notice that I didn’t make a basket but instead I used one of the decorative panels for the background of my card.


To make the card start by stamping the bouquet image onto hot press watercolor paper with black ink and emboss with clear embossing powder. Next use watercolor markers to color it. You can use any coloring medium of your choice. I used watercolors to give a softer look to the image. Once the image is dried, die cut it using the coordinating dies. Set aside.


Cut a piece of white card stock measuring 4” x 5 ¼” and set it aside. Die cut three of the diamond panels from the Pop-up Basket die from white card stock. Adhere one of them in the middle of the white piece of cardstock that you previously set aside. Then align the other two on the left and right of it. Trim off the excess card stock.

Stamp the sentiment using black ink. Using foam tape or foam squares adhere the image.

Create a note card from white card stock ( I used 4 ¼” x 11” piece of white card stock and scored it at the 5 ½” mark then folded in half). Adhere the panel to the note card using foam tape of craft foam for a more dimensional look. You are done! 


Thank you so much for stopping by and check the Scrappy Tails blog for more sneak peeks!!!

Hero Arts: January My Monthly Hero Release, Blog Hop, Giveaway + Videos

 Hi everyone!

Happy Monday and Happy New Year (again!). Today is the first Monday of the Month which means it's time for new My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts. 

And again, Hero Arts never ceases to amaze me with their kits and products. This month's kit is another that you don't want to miss. It has this amazingly pretty large floral image and adorable chubby bees!!! It's perfect for coloring or just embossing on colored card stock. I am showing you both options below!

If you are following the hop you have probably arrived from Emily Midgett's blog and your next stop is Jessica Frost-Ballas.

For my projects today I decided to show you non coloring option (scroll down) and coloring option to use the kit. The cards are not in order of how I created them ;) I will have video for all of them shortly (2 separate videos).
For my first set of 3 cards  I stamped all the images from the set of watercolor paper and embossed in clear embossing powder. Next I colored them with Karin markers and die cut them. I had some images left so I created 2 additional cards (how I ended up with 3)

Next are bunch of cards where I wanted to show you that you can also use this kit to make quick and easy cards with no coloring involved. I stamped couple of the images and a sentiment on different colors of card stock and them embossed using Detail White embossing powder (or gold sparkle). Added some ink in the center of the flowers using sponge dauber, added enamel dots or gems and shimmer pen to the flowers and bees' wings and added to note cards. Super quick and easy, within an hour I had like 15 cards done!
