Hello Spring… April 26, 2017

Spring is my second favorite time of year. Sometimes it passes by too quickly though! For this card, I am using Hero Arts Color Layering Birds and Blossoms.

I picked up this cute little set of dies and stamps at our Stamp & Scrapbook Expo in Anaheim, CA. If you have never been to an SSBExpo you have got to go!  If you love to shop and crop this is the place to be! My friend and I are now impatient for the next expo in Califonia which comes in October. That will be in Ontario and since we normally attend 2 Expos each year here in California we look forward to each one!

Find an expo in your area by checking out their site here.

This set that I picked up came with the cutting dies and a set of 4 Hero Arts stamp cubes. It was a nice little bundle! Thanks, Bee Creative for stocking these and selling them at the SSBExpo! I gave this little card to a co-worker today in celebration of Administrative Professionals Day.

I gave this little card to a co-worker today in celebration of Administrative Professionals Day. She loves birds and I thought it would be a hit!

I am entering this in the April “Anything Goes” challenge at A Blog Named Hero with Hero Arts.

Sending Prayers March 30, 2017

Hero Arts recently came out with the cute Cut & Stamp sets that included the die of the largest sentiment in the set. The hardest part when I was shopping was figuring out which one to purchase first.

Sending Prayers Card by Holly Jackson

I know that I have been needing to have a set for sympathy purposes since I know many of my friends have gone through some rough times lately.

It’s so easy to just say I am praying for you on a facebook post but I thought I would take it a step further and send a card.

Who doesn’t love snail mail right?

I used a base card in blue from Die Cuts with a View Jewel cards. I then layered with blue gingham from Creative Imaginations Signature Collection “Gingham” 6×6 collection and a blue floral print from Simple Stories  “Summer Fresh” 6×6 collection.

The Tiddly Ink’s Digital image was printed on Xpress It blending card using a laser printer then colored with various Copic Markers.

Krafting Kimmie Friend's to the Finish

Krafting Kimmie Friend’s to the Finish

Top photo was taken in the sun & bottom photo in the shade. I was at the my favorite neighborhood coffee shop Coffee Connection when these were taken so I used the backdrops that were available.  I just love this coffee shop. The staff are so friendly and the owners are awesome!

I am entering this card into this: Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge: Fussy Cutting

I cut the runners arm up to about the elbow so that I could put it on top of the  ribbon to look like she was crossing the finish line at the end of her race! The sign post was glittered up using my favorite glitter from Sparkle and Sprinkle.

Have a great day!

Yumi and Fumi Challenge # 10

Yumi and Fumi Card

The stamp I used for this challenge is the Yumi & Fumi stamp.  I first found their stamps at the Carson, CA stamp show and immediately fell in love with their stamps.

I used Copic markers to color the stamp in and fussy cut round the outside of the image. The background papers are from Simple Stories 6×6 pad “Summer Fresh”
