Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop- Hot Air Balloons

This week we are taking you up up & away with the new Lift Me Up product bundle!
Take a look at my card...

I always adore all those watercolor wash cards so I decided to go that route by using a piece of Shimmer white cardstock & 3 ink pads. Then I played with the idea of adding some balloons directly on top of the water coloring. It looked cute but a bit flat so the Big Shot & framelits came to the rescue & I think it came out pretty good!

~Alrighty well lets hop on over to see what Mindy has created for us~

Valentine Owl

I saw a super cute punch art owl on Pinterest made by Dawn Olchefske & I wanted to create a similar one using this months Paper Pumpkin kit.

Aren't these tiny bags adorable & this little owl fits perfectly!
Here's a quick peek at how it went down...

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop- Sale-a-Bration 2017

Welcome! I have a question for you...
What do Cupcakes, Carousels, Chickens, & Tacos have in common?! Well this card of course, Lol!

I hope you have seen all the totally adorable things you can get for free with this years Sale-a-Bration promotion, if not take a look-

So now I'm sure you recognize which stamp sets I used. Yep, Hey Chick & Tasty Trucks. They may have been drawn by the same artist because they go together so perfectly! Of course I had to pair all that with my new favorite DSP, Cupcakes & Carousels!
I was hoping to do another card with  the chickens having ice cream but I ran out of time. Boo.

But lucky for you there are plenty more ideas to come so let's hop on over to see
what fun Mindy is having!

The Stash

Hello Friends!
Today I wanted to share a birthday card I created for a sweet friend.
I have a small stash of these beautiful flowers that I cut out from this gorgeous Stampin' Up DSP.
It has since retired so of course I wanna go in to hoarder mode but
I have been trying to get better about that. #workinprogress 
Gotta remember that it is way better for someone to enjoy a project I have made with this beloved paper than to just have it sitting on a shelf in my craftroom, right?!

Here's a quick look at how it came together...
