Reverse Confetti & Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Birthday - You're Fintastic


Hello stampin' friends! I am SO happy that I was able to get crafty again! I made this FUN birthday card with the NEW Reverse Confetti, Oceans of Love Stamp set and Oceans of Love Confetti Cuts. I ordered this sweet stamp set from, Simon Says Stamp, along with some other Reverse Confetti Stamps from the new release. I am entering my card, You're Fintastic, in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Birthday Celebration! 




I used my "Reverse" water-colouring technique on this card....I just love doing this and find it much less time consuming than water-colouring each image. I used the "smooshing" technique with my Distress inks to create sheets of water-coloured paper and then strategically stamped the images on the paper to get the desired watercolour effect. I did go in with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Watercolour pens and add some extra definition/contrast to the adorable little sea-turtle...I've been calling him Squirt, lol and some of his friends!  I also stamped some images from the Reverse Confetti Mermaid Kisses Stamp set from my stash.

I embellished with some hemp twine tied to the sentiment strip where I stamped the sentiment from the Oceans of Love Stamp set and I added a sprinkling of sparkly blue YNS Gumdrops


I created the water-coloured background for the scene again using the "Smooshing" technique with my Tim Holtz Distress inks and then strategically cut out several different colours with the NEW Circle of Waves Confetti Cuts. I also created a frame using my MFT Circle STAX Die-namics cut from MFT Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock and popped it up with foam adhesive. 

It doesn't show in the photos but I added some sparkle with my ZIG Wink of Stella Clear glitter pen.  


I finished the inside of the card too. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from an old Reverse Confetti Stamp set - Monkey Business. I don't know if you are like this but I really like all the fonts on a card, inside and out, to match.  I also used a sentiment from the NEW Oceans of Love Stamp set that is super cute.  

Thank you SO much for stopping by and having a little look at my card for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Birthday Celebration using the NEW Reverse Confetti Oceans of Love Stamp set and Confetti Cuts

Funko Pop! Quidditch Harry & Spider-Man


Hello Stampin' friends! It has been a very long time since I've made a card and posted it here on my blog but I thought I would share two cards that I made recently for a friend at work. She recently shared with me her obsession with collecting Funko Pop! figurines (I can see why...they are SO cute) and her LOVE of Harry Potter Funko Pop!

This got my crafty senses working and and I wondered if I could find a Funko Pop! digital stamp or image so I could make my friend a Funko Pop! Harry Potter card. I did a quick google search and discovered these super cute Funko Pop! colouring pages HERE. Quidditch Harry and Spider-Man were exactly what I was looking for!  


I resized the image to fit my card, printed Quidditch Harry on Neenah Solar White Cardstock and coloured him up with my Copics. I cut him out with MFT Stamps Rectangle STAX and left the image in the die and inked with Mustard Seed Distress ink. I also did the "Ink Smooshing" technique with various Tim Holtz Distress inks to create the background paper. I used my Reverse Confetti All Framed Up Confetti Cuts cut from RC Salsa Cardstock. I embellished with some grey Hemp cord and Your Next Stamp gold sparkly Gumdrops!  I printed the sentiment with the free Harry P font from DaFont.com and cut it out with the the Reverse Confetti Bitty Banners Confetti Cuts and inked with Mustard Seed Distress ink


I finished the inside of the card too. I resized Quidditch Harry and printed him out on Neenah Solar White Cardstock to create a shadow image and then cut the card panel from MFT Blueprints #11. I used the Harry P font to create the sentiment with a Harry Potter movie quote that I found on Pinterest. I cut out the printed sentiment with MFT Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and inked it with Mustard Seed Distress ink and layered it with the MFT Layered Treat Bag Die-namics


I had so much fun making the Funko Pop! Quidditch Harry card that I made another card with Funko Pop! Spider-Man. This card is for her great-grandson's upcoming 2nd birthday! 


Again, I resized Spider-man, printed him on Neenah Solar White Cardstock and coloured him with my Copics. I fussy cut around the image and popped it up on the Reverse Confetti Web Tag Layer Confetti Cuts cut from silver glitter cardstock. I created some background paper using the "Ink Smooshing" technique with Tim Holtz Distress inks and used the Reverse Confetti All Framed up Confetti Cuts for the stitched border cut from RC Brick Cardstock


I tied the tag with grey Hemp Twine and embellished with some YNS Red Gumdrops. I stamped a sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Tie-rific Stamp set with Stephanie Barnard ColorBox Premium Dye ink in Blueberry and cut the sentiment out with the MFT Stitched Sentiment Strips

I tried to recreate the texture/dimension on the eyes of the actual Funko Pop! Spider-man figurine and used my Gelly Roll Glitter Pen in Clear Star to get the desired effect. 


I finished the inside of this card with another printed shadow image. I was able to personalize it using an old QuicKutz 2X2 Olivia Unicase Alphabet Die Set and stamped a sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Whole Lotta Happy Sentiment Stamp Set

Thanks SO much for stopping by and having a little look at the cards I made with the Funko Pop! Colouring page images.

My Favourite Things....MFTWSC483 and CTD587...Heartfelt Thanks!


Hello stampin' friends! I spent the weekend #stayinghome and getting crafty! I made these sweet cards with the MFT Birdie Brown Free Digital Download that they have available on the MFT blog. Theses Birdie Brown stamp sets and sentiments are SOOO sweet!!! I used the fabulous colour combo over at the Color Throwdown # 587 and used the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge # 483

Love this great sketch and used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Kraft, Bubblegum, Spearmint and Steel Grey 




I recently got a new printer and I wasn't sure if the ink would be compatible with my Copic markers so when I downloaded the free Birdie Brown digital images it was a chance to test it out. I had my fingers crossed!

I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have any problems with the printer ink smudging or bleeding with my new HP Officejet 3830 printer. I printed this image on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cover stock and coloured this sweet nurse from the the MFT Birdie Brown Call the Shots digital download and cut out a sentiment too. I stamped the tiny open heart from the Reverse Confetti Unicorn Wishes on the nurses' chart and coloured in the image with my Copics.


For this card I used the Rounded Banner STAX Die-namics for the arched panel that the sketch calls for and I created a window. I also used the two different nesting sizes in the STAX set to make a frame from Kraft Heavyweight Card stock. I stamped a background with the Make Your Mark Background Stamp with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink on Smooth White Cardstock.  I embellished with some twine and sparkly YNS gumdrops.  


I finished the inside of the card too. I simply used the positive die from the Rounded Banner STAX Die-namics and made a tag. I layered another sentiment too. 


I made a second card with the same layout with the Birdie Brown Super Hero in Scrubs Digital Download. I fussy cut the images out and popped him up on the Rounded Banner STAX Die-namics window. I used the Make Your Mark Background stamp again (love it) with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink.


I embellished with some hemp cord and a sprinkling of YNS pink gumdrops. I stamped a heart on his chart too.


And I finished the inside of the card too. I simply used the positive die from the Rounded Banner STAX Die-namics and made a tag. I layered another sentiment too. 
Thanks SO much for stopping by and having a little look at my cards for the MFTWSC438 and the Color Throwdown # 587 with the MFT Free Birdie Brown Digital Downloads that are on the MFT Blog.

My Favorite Things...MFT Color Challenge 138 & Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge...You're a Good Egg!


Hello Stampin' friends!!! It has been a very long time since I have made a card and posted here on my blog but I have been staying home and self-isolating/social distancing, like everyone one else, during the COVID19 pandemic. We finally got around to giving my craftroom a refresh with a coat of paint. We had this mini-reno in the works for a while but hadn't got around to it. So, we finally did it! Chris painted and hung up the pegboard that my Dad made for me and my Mum painted it. I love it!!! Everyone did a great job! Scroll down to see some craftroom pics. 

So, I made this card with this adorable MFT Somebunny Sweet Pure Innocence stamp. I think she is retired now but this is my first time inking her up. I made this card with the pretty color pallet for the MFT Color Challenge 138.  I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. They have a beautiful spring mood board for inspiration. 





I made my card with MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Primitive White, Razzle Berry, Blu Raspberry and Reverse Confetti Sunshine Cardstock



I coloured the Somebunny Sweet Pure Innocence with my Copic markers and I created a little scene with the flower accessories stamp from the Mud Buddies Pure Innocence Stamp set. I cut the image with my MFT Rectangle STAX Die-namics and did some inking with Distress ink in Tumbled Glass  and Mowed Lawn.

I made the scalloped frames cut from Primitive White Heavyweight Cardstock with the Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frames Die-namics. I stamped the background with Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink on Primitive White Cardstock with Crosshatch Background Stamp.


I stamped a sentiment from the Somebunny Sweet Pure Innocence Stamp set and embellished with some stamped and copic-colored eggs from the same set, cut with the coordinating Somebunny Sweet Die-namics. I wrapped the stitched sentiment strip with some hemp twine and added a sprinkling of Your Next Stamp sparkly Gumdrops.   


I finished the inside of my Somebunny Sweet Pure Innocence card too. I stamped a shadow image of the PI girl and her little friend with Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink and stamped another sweet sentiment from the set with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I created a layered sentiment with my favorite Layered Treat  Tag Die-namics.  

And as promised here are some pics of my craftroom...paint colour is Benjamin Moore Coventry Grey.

My room is very small but it works for me and I love having a dedicated space and everything close by and I love being able to close the door on a crafty mess!


The baskets are from Michaels and I just punched a hole with my Crop-A-Dile and hung them on the pegboard hooks. I plan on hanging stamps and dies that I want to use on a specific project or that are NEW so that I remember what I have and use them.


My Dad made these shelves a long time ago but they weren't painted...so when Chris took them down to paint the walls and painted them white. They look great white!


Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my my spring/easter card with the adorable Pure Innocence Somebunny Sweet Stamp set for the MFT Color Challenge # 138

Reverse Confetti - Heart Pals - Be A Donor Campaign - A Show of Hearts


Hello stampin' friends! It has been a long time since I made a card but I was inspired to get crafty and make this card for "A show of Hearts Campaign" - Be a Donor Campaign. The challenge is to use your creativity with photos to show support for, Donna McAllister, she is from the Durham region and she needs a heart transplant. This campaign has been organized by my friend, Cheryl Bailey, to encourage everyone to do their part and spread awareness of organ/heart donation. 


For my card I used my Reverse Confetti Stamp set Heart Pals. I coloured them with my Copics and cut them out with the coordinating Heart Pals Confetti Cuts. I used the Tag Me Confetti Cuts and stamped a white heat embossed sentiment on velum. The Sentiment is from the My Tribe Sentiment Set.  


I also used the RC All Framed Up Confetti Cuts and the RC Hang Ups Confetti Cuts. I tied the Tag with some American Crafts Twine and added some sparkle with Stickles to my Heart Pals. I also, embellished with some YNS Gumdrops. 


 I finished the inside of my card too and stamped a sentiment from the Heart Pals Stamp set and coloured up another adorable Heart Pals.

Thanks for stopping by and having a little look at my Reverse Confetti Heart Pals Stamp set.  Now, I double checked on the beadonor.ca  website and I am a registered organ and tissue donor...are you?

Reverse Confetti - Snowflake Magic


 Hello Stampin' friends! I am back with another card that I made with the NEW Snowflake Magic stamp set and coordinating Snowflake Magic Confetti Cuts from the NEW Reverse Confetti release.

I picked up some YUPO paper a couple of months ago with every intention of pulling out the many Ranger Alcohol Inks that I have kickin' around in my craftroom. I really wanted to make some beautiful marbled backgrounds that I have been seeing others make. So, I played around with the Alcohol inks and YUPO paper using various techniques...it is very fun, relaxing and addictive and definitely helped to got the crafty mojo flowing again.

This background was actually made by "smooshing" the YUPO paper in the residual alcohol ink that was left on my Ranger non-stick craft sheet. I added some extra little drops of Alcohol Blending Fluid to the left over Mountain Rose, Pool and Denim Alchol ink and Silver Mixative that was on the craft sheet to loosen it up and get some more movement of the ink. I loved how this soft marbled background turned out. It was perfect for a Snowflake Magic card. 


I stamped and heat embossed the Snowflake Magic stamps on MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Berrylicious and Pink Lemonade with American Crafts ZING! White embossing powder.  I also cut some other snowflakes with the RC Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts from Sno Cone and Pink Lemonade Heavyweight Cardstock.  I embellished with some hemp twine and YNS sparkly Gumdrops.


I finished up the inside of my card too...I simple added a scrap of the Alcohol inked marbled background cut with an MFT Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-namics (one of my all time favourtie dies along with the Vertical Stitched Strips....SOOOO versatile). I added a white embossed sentiment from the RC Sentimental Christmas Stamp Set and added another stacked Snowflake from the Snowflake Magic Stamp set and Confetti Cuts

Thanks SO much for stopping by and having a little look at my Reverse Confetti Snowflake Magic card!

Reverse Confetti - Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Party Time...Snow Bunnies


Merry Christmas stampin' friends! I made some time to make a card with some new Reverse Confetti Stamps and Confetti Cuts. I am SO glad that I did! I realized how much I miss getting crafty and really enjoyed the creative process. I hope to get back at it on a more regular basis in 2019.  So for my card today I used the super cute NEW Snow BunniesStamp set, coordinating Snow Bunnies Confetti Cuts and the Snow Balls Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.   
For my card I used Reverse Confetti Card Stock in Cloud White, Aqua, Lime Green  and MFT Kraft and Sno Cone Cardstock

I am entering my card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Party Time! So for my card I envisioned the Snow Bunnies are having a FUN skate party ;)


So, I'm a slow poke when I am making a card so it really speeds up my creative process when I already have inked background paper on hand...just love when a card comes together (relatively) quickly. I found this inked background paper in my stash that I had made for another project and didn't use. The Bristol card stock was ink blended with Distress Oxide Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers Inks. I cut it with the NEW Reverse Confetti Snowballs Cover Panel and layered it over a panel of Reverse Confetti Cloud White Card stock.

I coloured the skating snow bunnies with my copics, cut them out with the coordinating Snow Bunnies Confetti Cuts and created a little winter scene with the MFT Tree Lines Die-namics that I cut from a scrap of the same Distress Inked card stock. I also cut the stitched scalloped border from the MFT Blueprints 23. The larger cloud is from the Snow Bunnies Stamp set and the smaller matching cloud is from the RC/Simon Says Stamp Forest Friends Stamp set.



I framed the scene with the wonky stitched frame from the All Framed Up Confetti Cuts. I stamped a sentiment from the Snow Bunnies Stamp set on a stitched fishtail banner. I added some American Crafts twine and Your Next Stamps Gumdrops.


I finished up the inside of my cards...I stamped a shadow image from the Snow Bunnies Stamp set in Reverse Confetti Lime Green Ink and stamped a sentiment from the Sentimental Christmas Stamp set on Cloud card stock cut with the Tag Duo Confetti Cuts. 

Thanks SO much for stopping by and having a little look at my Snow Bunnies Christmas Skate Party card with the adorable skating snow bunnies.  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas day with family and friends!
