WoodBlock Wednesday Love is Sweet

Hampton Art Stamps 711-Going Out, Studio G Hampton Art Alison Wong sentiment Love is Sweet, Papertrey Ink Geode Layers/Brushed Off Rectangles

Amy is hosting another Woodblock Wednesday!

I've loved playing with the woodblocks again~


I got the wood stamp image at a thrift store and my girlies gifted me the sentiment YEARS ago. ;)

I'm a huge fan of abstract shaped dies; I feel they add interest and something different (no matter the parameters of a stamp).

They are also very forgiving in regards to whether they are angled or not.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Rainbow Cook

I wanted to try this rainbow Octopus idea again, but this time with cooking utensils.

Hero Arts Paper Layering Octopus die/Fancy dies Cooking Tools/Deco-rations, Crimper tool


I dusted off my crimper tool (I remember thinking it was the coolest tool ever when I first started making cards!).

The sentiment is from a lovely surprise that was thrown in my Hero Arts order months?? years??? ago. It's a set called Deco-rations.

Thanks for your sweet visit!

Lend a Hand Octopus


I love this Hero Arts Paper Layering Octopus die, and this idea sprung in my mind:

Hero Arts Paper Layering Octopus die, Studio Light Baby Bottle Essentials Pacifiers, Honey Bee Stamps Rock-A-Bye Baby Honey Cuts, Winnie & Walter(no longer in business) Cuddles die

I remember thinking how handy it would be to have more arms (when my girlies were little little). ;)

Rainbow colored items for the following challenges: 

I appreciate your visit today!

Hot Foil Elegance Duo

Today I've got two elegant cards to share, thanks to Hot Foiling products from Erin Lee Creative and Spellbinders.

Erin Lee Creative Glossy papers/Sketched Floral Hot Foil Cover Plate and Solid Hot Foil Plate, Spellbinders Hot Foil Mini Everyday Sentiments , Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die (to cut center panels)

If you use a hot foil cover plate, by all means get a solid plate too; you'll get two cards in one craft window!

I splurged on Spellbinder's Hot Foil Mini Everyday Sentiments, and it's really a great deal.

You have so many sentiments to keep on hand and it's nice to do a bunch at one time.

When I saw Time Out Challenge's prompt Elegant, I knew I had to finish these cards with the foiling I'd played with.

The card on the left is from Erin Lee Creative's Sketched Floral plate on the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System.

I used Erin Lee Creative's glossy white paper and die cut it with Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches.

The one on the right is a solid plate, heating the remnant, on glossy black paper.

There was a little bit left around both Wonky Stitched panels, so I trimmed them to frame the opposite cards. 

Thank you for your sweet visit!


Snow White Tag Card

I came upon this sweetheart mini in a Disney mystery ball and I created a tag to give to my oldest (she's her twin).

Erin Lee Creative Script Sentiments 2 Foil die/Wonder Woman sentiment, Poppy Stamps Main Street Tags, My Favorite Things Gift Card Grooves, Pink& Main Slimline die (behind the slot),Hero Arts Rounded Rectangle Infinity dies, Winnie and Walter (out of business) Happy die

Simon Says (Wednesday): Tag It


It look me awhile to figure out how to present her and then I came across one of my creations here .

I decided this way she can tuck that tag anywhere, but won't lose it.

She loved it and I'm glad it came to fruition the way I pictured it!

I always appreciate your sweet visit~
