You're The Man

I had a few minutes tonight and used it to put together this quick card. The stamps used for this card are from MFT set   BB Old Friends . 

Panda and Fox

 A very talented young lady is approaching her first double digit birthday!  Undecided on what to do for a card I started digging though my stamp collection I came across Unity's Sweet Panda Friend . This young lady has requested stuffed animals for her big day, so I felt it would work perfectly.   I stamped and heat embossed the panda in the middle of card and then stamped out a second image on a sticky note. The image on the sticky note was fussy cut and used to mask the panda on the card front.   In addition to masking the panda I also took a piece of washi tape and ran it down both sides of the card, to mask that area.  Once I completed masking I used Taylored Expressions Gifted Background stamp to build out the background image of gifts.  The last stamp used on the card front is from Jaded Blossoms Hello Hello stamp set.  I purchased this stamp set a couple years back and just noticed today as I went to get the link for you that it is on sale at 70% off so it may be on it'

Introducing Holiday Dangles!

Wear a pop of color and flare to your next holiday event and let your ears do the talking! These gorgeous dangles will bring fun to any outfit. Do you have that favorite ugly sweater or maybe you are crafty and make your own each year for those special gatherings, the tinsel dangles would be a perfect accessory.   It's been fun making these dangles and I intend to make and sell more. They are simple to make once you have the right tools on hand. Some makers cut out their designs by hand, while others use electric cutting machines such as a Cameo or Cricket or cutting dies.  These particular earrings were made with cutting dies and leathers purchased through . I have the ability to create using a Cameo or Scan N Cut, but I prefer the cleaner cuts I get using dies such as those found at TE.

The Start of The Holiday Season

#TayloredExpressions #FluffyFriendsHoliday #MFTStamps #MistiStamping      I went to a couple of business for the first time in a long while recently and noticed that Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas items were all out on the floor at the same time. Aa a side note if you are  an investor I think you could really win with a year around "Holiday Store" where you could shop any holiday at any time of year.  Personally, I like to go the common retail stores for every day items and not have to be reminded of what big money sucking holiday is lurking around the corner   The holiday decor did inspire me to start making holiday cards. Every year I say I am going to get enough put together to be able to send them to friends and family and every year I fail. Today, I made my first holiday card for the Fall/Winter season.   I am really enjoying the bird on the sentiment.       The stamp set that I used is Taylored Expressions Fluffy Friends - Holiday . There are several other

Just "Chicken" In

How are you? Any summer plans?  I am so happy that I splurged and purchased the limited time Farm Fresh Kit from Taylored Expressions .   This chicken is my favorite in the kit with the piggy coming into a close second. I gave the chick a "wobble" head thanks to the mini wobbles that were included in the kit. I already had a ton of wobbles in my stash but they are just to big most projects so they just don't get used. I don't know that these are are still available, but it's worth checking out.  For this card the grass is the included Gingham Checker background stamp. I stamped it using MFT's Extreme Black and then used my TE Blender Brushes to apply Distress Oxide Bundled Sage  over the stamped image. I then used Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside dies to cut the image.   The clouds were done using MFT's Cloud Stencil and once again my TE Blender Brushes to apply Distress Oxide Broken China and Tumbled Glas s.  I stamped the barn from the kit and color

Grandma's Birthday Card and a Video

This card was put together for Grandma Parks for her special day. In the making of it I sent an image to my sister who also enjoys making cards and I wasn't sure how to complete it.  The image she seen was of the gifts and tag. When she seen the completed cards she had some questions, like how did you do that floor and are the gifts die cuts?  To address her questions I made a second card and recorded it. You can catch the un edited video here: . 

Bright Colors, Trolls and Cake!!

It's always fun when I get to use bright colors. This card was made with a specific child in mind. This soon to be 9 year old seems to have taken a special liking to me, so I am hoping this will help brighten her day.  This card was made with stamps sets from Kindred Stamps, The Alley Way and Taylored Expressions.
