Year of the Rooster!

Happy Chinese New Year!  2017 is the Year of the Rooster- my year!

It wouldn't be new years without some handmade lucky envelopes for my kids, niece's & nephew!

I pulled out my favorite animal set to make these, Lunar Animals & Lunar Extras from Mama Elephant!

Year of the Rooster

I originally intended for them to be much simplier, but it just wouldn't come together for me- so I created this sweet scene!

I used a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tag die and stamped the flower branch & rooster, colored with copics. I made the mini envelope using my envelope punch board and layered red glitter paper under the tag. It was still missing *something*... I die cut the flag (basic stitched flag) and stamped & gold embossed the, "Gong Hay Fat Choy" sentiment too look like a traditional New Years banner hanging from the tree branch! I finished them off with another rooster on the back mounted with foam tape so the flap of the envelope tucks under it.

Rooster: E23, E25, E27, B37, Y35, R37, R46
branches: E53, E55, E57, RV00, RV02, RV06, YG61, YG63, YG67

Wishing you all a Prosperous & Happy New Year!

Everything Stops for Walkies!


I would have posted this sooner, but having some computer issues at the moment and attempting to blog from my phone...

This weekend kicked off the CHA2017 trade show, here in my hometown of Phoenix, AZ- I so wish I was there! Anyway, I'm popping in today to share one of the cards I made with one of the new releases from LDRS Creative... Everything Stops for Walkies!

It is absolutely the cutest and I had so much fun making this card.


Sorry to cut out the details, hope to update as soon my computer is back up and running!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Sweet Day

Happy New Year!

I'm finally jumping back onto the card making train, and kicking off the new year (2 weeks later...)  with a new card over on the LDRS Creative blog today!

Sweet Strawberry Fields

Now that Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought this adorable Strawberry Fields stamp would be a sweet start!

After coloring with copics, I fussy cut the image. Layered it on top of Fancy Squares & Little Things and Basic Stitched Flag dies, added a red heart doily, and adhered it all on a kraft cardstock piece trimmed slightly smaller than my cardbase and embossed with the Picnic Quilt embossing folder. Finished it off by stamping part of one sentiment from the Friendly Greetings set.

mice: C1, C3, C5, R20
strawberries: R32, R35, R46, R89, Y02, Y06, YG03, YG17, YG67, YR04
