I can't believe a week has already gone by since my last post! Today I have a fun card to show you using the Lawn Fawn stamp and die set "Critters From The Past". I colored my pre-historic scene using Spectrum Noir markers. The clouds were stamped and heat embossed with white powder using the Lawn Fawn set "Into The Woods".

I am happy you stopped by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

A Little Kindness

Hello and welcome to Friday! This has been a long week, and I am happy, and excited the weekend is here. I am also excited to share this card with you today! My card features the new Stampin' Up stamp set "Kinda Eclectic". I stamped the butterflies using Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, and Elegant Eggplant. The woodgrain background was also stamped using Perfect Plum on Perfect Plum card stock. That's a lot of plum! You cannot tell from the picture, but the star burst was stamped in versamark and heat embossed with  SU gold powder.
I am happy you stopped by, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
This set is right up my alley, butterflies, beautiful sentiment, polka dots! What's not to love?

News Flash!

Haha! Got your attention did I? Well, the brand new set "Calling All Heroes" from Stampin' Up! captured mine too. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be mine.

                      This set retails for $25.95. Each plastic sheet is 4x6. That's a lot of stamps! I had so much fun creating my card and tag. If you would like to order this limited edition (It isn't a catalog stamp set and is only available for a limited time.) Please visit my store here and order it today!


                                       Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

June Is A Great Month For Birthday's

    June is a fun month in the Zalis family, Joe and I share the same birthday, June 29th! I also have 3 friends that share this day as well. Fun! Anyways, today I am sharing a card I created using more stamps from my Stamping Royalty prize package. This card was created using the Neat and Tangled stamp set "Just For You". This one is so cute! I used Stampin' Up ink to stamp my balloons, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding and Early Espresso. (My new go-to dark ink for sentiments and outlines.) I stamped the balloons in a pattern, and to add a little extra definition I only gave the Strawberry Slush balloons an outline. I stamped the sentiment directly on the card, and then stamped the banner by itself, cut it out, and attached it to my card using foam adhesive. I hope you like my card! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Manly Man Cards

     In honor of Father's Day I am sharing two masculine cards I created using Papertrey Inks "Just Zoomin' By" and MFT "Hit the Road" Die-namics dies and stamp set that were a part of my Stamping Royalty package. Both cards pretty much speak for themselves, so I will keep this post short.
This is a fun card featuring MFT stamps and dies, but the bicycle die is by Your Next Stamp.
I'm glad you stopped by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Be You..

Be You
     I'm sorry my blog has been quiet, it was just one of those weeks. Yesterday I sat down in my craft room, with no real idea's in mind, so I grabbed one of my favorite stamp sets, some of my favorite inks, and I just started stamping. After playing with a few designs I settled on this one. I used the Altenew stamp set "Painted Flowers". The ink colors I used are all from Stampin' Up! Island Indigo, Soft Sky, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Cool Cabana. I know I constantly rave about them, but I love, love my SU ink! I added a different stitching design then my normal, and to give my card a little bit more POP I adhered my card base to Stampin' Up! Basic Black card stock.
   That's all I have for today. I'm happy you stopped by and I hope you are having a lovely day!
