More Mermaid Fun

Happy Monday evening my lovelies. Here’s hoping that you had a wonderful start to the week. This is our last full week of Summer break before school starts up and we are trying to make the most of it :)

I have another Summer card to share with you featuring mermaids (again. In case you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for mermaid stamps)

I created the background myself using some plain white Neenah cardstock. I embossed a Hero Art background stamp with some white embossing powder and then just sponged on various colors of  Distress Ink. Using Distress inks ensures that the colors blend together seamlessly. So pretty. I added some gems and of course, the mermaid images which are from the Sweet November Mermaid set.

Maritime Tags #2

Happy Sunday my lovelies! Hope you had a fabulous week-end so far! I am back to show another one of my Maritime tags that I made for my boys :)

This is another fun and playful image and because I made 3 of these tags at a time, it was pretty quick and easy. I just changed up the dies that I used for each tag, keeping the basic heart shape the same. That is why I love using all the various die-lights. You can change up a die or two and get something different and customized!

Here are the product links for you:

Stamp and Create with Magnolia

Happy Friday my lovelies! I am popping in today to share my latest Magnolia creation with you for the Stamp and Create with Magnolia challenge. The theme this week is “ For a Teacher”.

I thought of this cutie immediately :)

The stamp is called Autumn Tilda with Pencils and I colored it with copics and then masked the image so that I could add in some air-brushing. The banner shapes are from Stampin’ Up and I stamped them with various inks to match the coloring of my image. The card base is from Pebbles. I am loving these ready made bases…makes things so quick and easy!

You are Fabulous

Happy Wednesday everyone! What is that expression? It is raining cats and dogs this morning. It has been a while since we had rain so I won’t complain. It was nice to wake up cozy in bed and hear the rain hitting the roof and KNOWING that I didn’t have to get up and go anywhere :) Not so nice for hubby who DID have to get up and drive our hockey player to camp :(

Today I want to share another PL insert that I made using one of the newer Whimys's Wee Stamps. This image is called Maya.

DSC_7766 copy 

I cut a piece of Neenah White Solar Crest paper to size at 4x6” and stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo black ink. After coloring the image with copic markers, I sponged Tumbled Glass Distress ink along the sides and stamped the sentiment (from Stampin’ Up) using Versamark Black Onyx ink. Then I added some bling and my insert was done :)

That is it for me this fine, rainy morning. I am still waiting for hubby to get back. He promised to pick up Timmies :)

Maritime Tags

Happy Sunday everyone! We are having a gorgeous week-end weather wise. Sunny, warm, no humidity and a wonderful breeze. When it is like this, I love going on long bike rides by the river with the boys. Which is what I plan to do after getting this post done and lunch made :) Hope you have some fun plans of your own!

I wanted to share one of the 3 tags that I made for my boys using the new Maritime digital images from Whiff of Joy.

I just adore this sweet image of Henry staring off into ocean blue. There is a lot going on with this tag but I like how it all looks together :0

Here are the supplies that I used:



I made a tag for each of my boys, so I have two more that I will share with you later on this week. Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!

A Birthday Card

Happy Thursday everyone! We have been busy with trips up to the cottage and having friends from Toronto over for a visit. Also, I was under the weather for a couple of days :( Not fun in the Summer, that is for sure.

I wanted to quickly pop in with a birthday card I made for a special little man in our lives. Can’t believe that he is nine now. Where does the time go to?

DSC_7600 copy

All my boys love the water and Henry mouse, so the newest Maritime digi images to hit Whiff of Joy are a big hit in our house! I have made more projects using the images and only need some time to get the photos watermarked and resized before I can share them :)

Here are some product links:


Also, Whiff of Joy is having a blow out sale at the moment. Unbelievable prices!


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Stamp and Create with Magnolia: Challenge #41

Happy, happy Friday my lovelies. Can you believe that it is August already? The Summer is flying by and pretty soon we will have to just get down to the business of buying school supplies and uniforms :( Things that my kids love (not) to do!

The new challenge over at Stamp and Create with Magnolia is:
Challenge #41:
Anything Goes

Stamp and Create carries a wide range of Magnolia stamps at some of the lowest prices!

Since there is an on-going Christmas sale, I decided to create a Christmas insert for my PL album. I couldn’t however use traditional colors….I went with a soft pink, blue and green scheme instead. The image is Peaceful Tilda from Magnolia’s 2013 Winter Wonderland Collection. I also die-cut some cute Magnolia Christmas trees to complete the scene :)
