A Million Little Things

Today I have another fun card that I made with Graphic45 papers.

This cute House Mouse Design image was release by Stampendous in July and is perfect for lots of occasions.  I made it pumpkin pie but it could be banana creme or chocolate or any flavor you like!

The image is called Pumpkin Pie.


I colored the image with Towbow Recycled pencils and blended with gamsol and blending stumps.



The sentiment is from the Life Words perfectly clear stamps.

The ribbon is Creative Impressions.

Grid 2 Die Set

Earlier this week Stephanie released a new die set at The Stamps of Life!

It's called Grid2 Die.


It is super versatile.
I used it to create the fabulouse 4pc background on this card.

Some of my fellow teamies used it as a window and created some super cute creations that you can find in the gallery!


I used Guava and Grape cardstock and the Congratulations paper pad from The Stamps of Life. 

The Happy Birthday die is from the Scallop Edge Drop in card die set.

The presents are Triplit Gifts.


Thanks for stopping by!

Pink Friday



Today is the final day of the week long Pink Your Life hop!

I decided to use the new Mama Christmas image but I didn't make a Christmas card!

And....surprise...I made a fun fold card!
I cheated a little but because I used a Spellbinders die to cut the card base.


I colored the image with colored pencils and blended with Gamsol and blending stumps.


I can't wait to get this in the mail because I know the recipient will love it!

More Pink!



The stampendous design team are hoping with the whimsical new Pink You Life images this week.

Today I combined this adorable Whisper house image with the Dreamweaver Cheveron Background Stencil.

I stenciled the Dreamweaver Cheveron Background Stencil with regular embossing paste and when it dried I sponged Splendor ink on the image to color it.

I colored the image with colored pencils.


Here is another view of this happy card.
