Valentine’s Cards with So Punny

Valentine’s Day is coming up quickly, and while not everyone is a fan, Doodlebug’s So Punny collection will make you a convert!  In fact, this collection is so cute and so versatile that you will be using it for everything from Valentine’s Day to Father’s Day to birthdays to Pizza Day (actually, I’m not sure if there is a pizza day, but if not, let’s invent one just so we have an excuse to craft with this collection some more)!

It’s a great collection because there really is something for everyone!  Whether your loved ones love BBQ…

…a gummi bears…

…or pizza, this collection has got you covered!

 

So come on by the Doodlebug blog for more details on this cute collection and this trio of cards!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cream and Sugar 2

Hi everyone! Guess what?  I am so excited to announce that I get to join Doodlebug for another year!  Joining this team was a thrill last year, and I had a great time creating with some of the most beautiful product around from an incredibly generous and fun company. So, when they asked if I would like to continue, it took less than a second to reply “YES!”.

Last year, when I started on the team, Cream & Sugar was the first collection that I was introduced too.  It has remained one of my favourites, not just for sentimental reasons, but also because as a coffee lover with a serious sweet tooth, I feel like this collection was made for me.  And given all the comments and cute project we have seen from all of you, we know it is a favourite of yours as well!

So for my first project this term, I thought I would go back to my card making roots!  You know I love my interactive and fun fold cards, so it was fun to pull out some of my old stand-bys…like side step cards!

And if a side step card is not your jam, a traditional A2 might work for you!

I have more pictures and plenty of details up over at the Doodlebug blog if you want to stop by!  In the meantime, I hope you can find some time to do a little crafting on what is left of this weekend!  I know I have a couple of projects up my sleeve!

Thanks for stopping by!

 

 

In terms of sentiments, that part was easy too!  I simply grabbed some stickers from the This & That sticker sheet , backed them with some paper from the 12×12 pack (although the 6×6 would be perfect too), and stick them on!

 

Add some Sprinkles (like these cute Cupcake coloured ones) and maybe a mini paper clip or two and you are all set!

So there you have it – a cute set of three cards ready for Valentine’s day next month, or any time that you want to send a little message that will make someone smile.  For now, these little cuties are going to find a place in my crafty space because quite frankly, they make me smile!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs,
Karen

 

 

Owl always love you!

oct-14-front

I am not sure what it is about being a mom, but I have to admit that it has brought out the “sappy” in me.  While I have always been a sucker for “cute”, what used to be simple smiles have turned into full out “ahhhhhhhh”s with copious amounts of sharing of these cute things on Facebook.  I am going to chalk it up to better appreciating the finer things in life in my old age!

oct-14-cuThis stamp was one of those things that elicited a full out “ahhhhhh” the first time I saw it.  Drawn by my friend Christy at Tiddly Inks, Owl Always Love You is a favourite of mine.  One of the things that I love about this card is the simplicity!  While it is true that my card making is not heavy on product at the best of time (I tend to go for a few layers of paper, and bow and some bling), this card is even simpler!  One layer of Doodlebug paper on a card base and I was done.  I think it works because of the amazing detail in the stamp – all attention is on those cute characters.  Although, how cute would this one be fussy cute and placed in from of a shaker!  Hmmm…I better go get some homework/housework done so I have some crafty time!

That’s it for me today – thanks for stopping by!

Go girl!

Good morning crafty friends! It’s Friiiiiday!  As many of you know, I happen to be a teacher in the hours that I am not crafting, and although I love that job immensely, I have to admit that the Friday countdowns do start in June.  So here’s to 4 more Fridays!
June-3-full

Over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog, it happens to be Fab Friday which means that I get to have fun with any Tiddly Ink stamp that I want, and any theme too!  Given that my students are right in the middle of rollerblading, I thought this great Wryn image called Wryn – Skater Girl would be perfect. I know, I know – rollerblades are not the same as roller skates, but work with me here, okay?!  I coloured her up with my Copics, experimenting a bit with some purples. I love my Copics a lot, but I seem to have a hard time with purples!  This time, I played a bit with the BV00, BV02, BV04 on Wryn’s pants and I was pretty happy!  Still looking for that true purple though – the one right in between red and blue!  Any suggestions from you Copic fans?

One Wryn was finished, I did team her up with some fun Doodlebug paper – a few pieces from this collection and a few from that!  That is one of the things that I love about A2 sized cards – you can use up a lot of odds and ends without it looking like you are piecing together odds and ends!  June-3-angled

Well, I am off to get this day going – the weather here is going to be great so maybe I’ll do a bit of outside crafting this weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
