Hello friends and happy Saturday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. I am at a monthly shoebox swap this morning with some regular crafting friends. That always leave me inspired to come home and continue crafting, but I know that I still have a little more organizing to do in my craft room before I sit down to create later this afternoon. Today I am sharing two sweet cards featuring the "Love Sent" digital stamp set from RG Avenue. As we will soon welcome in March tomorrow, I'm beginning to feel ready for all things spring!
Here is the "Love Sent" digital stamp set from RG Avenue that I used to create these cards. I wrote a lengthy blogpost answering many common questions about using digital stamps that you can also read here.
*A full supply list (with shopping links) is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Passion Pink cardstock for the first matted layer. Using the Lawn Fawn Reversed Scalloped Rectangle dies, I cut another piece of Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock for the frame. I placed a piece of Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes paper behind the frame (I did not watercolor this myself). I cut a couple piece of grass from the same Watercolor Wishes paper pack and used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside (grass) die. Because this is a digital stamp set, I printed out the images froma PDF file, colored them with Copic markers and ran the entire sheet through my Scan and Cut machine to electronically cut the images out, in lieu of fussy cutting. Lastly, I adhered the images to the card using foam adhesive for added dimension.
I hope you have enjoyed these sweet animal cards. Even if you don't have this exact stamp set, you could probably substitute one you already own and achieve a similar spring look. Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

Hello! Thank you for stopping by and visiting my website! If you are a first time reader, welcome! I hope you will find creativity and inspiration as you look around. If you are a regular follower, thank you for your continued support and returning day after day to see what's new! Today I am sharing four Valentine's Day themed cards using the fun "Beep Bots" and "Beep Notes" stamp sets from RG Avenue. I am loving the robot trend right now and these robots are extra large which makes them the focal point on each card. I'm actually on the ball this year and have completed ALL of my Valentine's Day cards. Now, to get them addressed and mailed out (which seems to be where it all goes south for me!)
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!

Hello readers and happy Friday! I hope you have fun things planned for the weekend ahead. Today I am sharing four cards that I created using the Heartfelt Blooms digital stamp set from RG Avenue. I loved creating multiple cards using each of the large flowers from this stamp set because I never get to use ALL the stamps in one set! We all tend to pick and choose our favorites, right?! But, also by making four different cards, I have many more cards to add to my ever decreasing supply. I also stayed with the same color palette (White, Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green) for all of these cards in order to to give them a more cohesive look. You could even package them up in a little cellophane and give them away as a gift!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing a variety of different way to use this stamp set!

Hello and happy Tuesday, friends. Today I am honored and excited to be part of the RG Avenue fundraising mission to help aid Australia from the terrible fires they have been experiencing. Honestly, I can't even turn on the evening news or read a newspaper article because I see these animals that are suffering and my heart breaks.
RG's team has created the "Sending Love" digital stamp featuring native animals of Australia, the koala and the kangaroo, as well as a map of Australia with it's most notable landmark, the Sydney Opera House.
All proceeds from the sale of this digital stamp set will be donated to the Ellen Degeneres Go Fund Me account benefiting Australia Bushfire Relief.
Here is the Sending Love Australia digital stamp set from RG Avenue:

If I had to pick my absolute favorite color, this card is it! Call it what you want - fuschia, raspberry, magenta, or simply berry, this reddish pinky-purple color is gorgeous and rich. I have it in cardstock, ink, ribbon and even cardigans, lipstick and velvet wedge heels! P.S. - those heels are to die for! Literally. I tripped one day into the street on my way to work and it was not pretty. . . Anywho, today's card features the "Sending Bunches" digital stamp set from RG Avenue. If you would like to learn more about digital stamps, please read this post where I talk in detail about what they are and how to use them.

This A2 sized card is made from Raspberry cardstock. Using the Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle dies, I cut the first layer from Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I stamped some splotches of raspberry ink directly onto the scalloped white cardstock. Because the "Sending Bunches" stamp set is a digital stamp set, I printed the file from my computer onto Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I colored in the images with Copic markers and then used my Scan & Cut 2 electronic cutting machine to cut the images out for me. I added the sentiment in the lower right corner using Tombow adhesive. I added the large balloon and two sets of flowers to the left center size of the card using foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of Dazzling Pat to the flowers and balloon for added sparkle.
Look at that sparkle!
I hope you are loving this color as much as I do! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!

As per my usual, I am late to creating this New Year's celebration card, but honestly this time it's not my fault! I never received this fun 2020 Uni stamp set from RG Avenue until last weekend. But, it is so darn adorable that I couldn't wait to create with it regardless if it's January 9th or not. Technically, it is still the New Year! But, this stamp set could also work for birthdays, if you just didn't use the little unicorns with the "2020" or "Happy New Year" banners.

This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". The base is cut from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Slimline Windows die from Whimsy Stamps, I cut the frame from purple cardstock. I lined the back of the frame with a piece of purple lined paper from the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper pack. Because this is a digital stamp, I printed the sheet image on Neenah White Solar Smooth cardstock and colored the images with Copic markers. I then ran the image sheet through my Scan and Cut 2 which cut the images out for me. I adhered the images to the card using foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of Dazzling Pat for added sparkle.

On Wednesday's we wear pink! Well today, this lumberjack got the "Mean Girls" message and has donned the appropriate ensemble with his pink ax and all! He's even going to be chopping down a pink tree! : ) This fun stamp set called "Love Jack" is from RG Avenue and I think it is an excellent set to be used for Valentine's Day, perhaps for the lumberjack in your life! Sure, I've made this into pretty pink cards for today, but I also can't wait to add some dark colors and plaid patterns to make Jack a little more burly and masculine.

The base of this A2 sized card is made from Sweet Pink sugar stock. Using the Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Rectangle dies, I cut the first layer from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I die cut a small heart from Sweet Cane cardstock and adhered it in the upper right forner. I stamped the sentiment "You're Awesome" in Sweet Pink Ink and fussy cut it into a banner that I adhered over the heart. I stamped all of the images from the "Lumberjack Love" stamp set in Black Taffy ink and colored them using Copic markers. I added some highlights to the images using a Uniball white gel pen. I stamped the tree over a piece of patterned pink paper (only so I wouldn't have to color it!) I used my Scan and Cut 2 to cut all o of the images out and adhered them to the card. Lastly, I added a coat of Dazzling Pat to the Lumberjack and woodpile for added sparkle.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" by 4" piece of Sweet Cane Sugar Stock and adhered it directly to the card base. Using the Gina Marie Stitched Rectangle dies, I cut a rectangle from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and stamped "Wood you" down the left side in Sweet Cane ink. I also stamped a few hearts in Sweet Pink ink. I adhered this rectangle directly to the card base. I stamped all of the images in the "Lumberjack Love" stamp set in Black Taffy ink and colored them with Copic markers. I used the Scan & Cut 2 to cut all of my images.

Hello readers! Welcome back to a more regular posting schedule here now that the holidays are over and things are slowly returning to normal again as we usher in the start of new year. I always look forward to a fresh start each January and I hope you are too! Today I am sharing a llama themed box card made from the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up. This is my go-to die for creating box cards. You can see this Halloween card in a box I made with it here, or my Grandpa's special 90th birthday pop-up card. This die really allows for lots of elements to be added in order to achieve the ultimate WOW factor.
The base of this box card was made using Sweet Cane sugar stock. I lined the backside of the card with white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Black Taffy sugar cube on the backside of the box card. The side layers were cut from Rich Cactus sugar stock which was mounted behind a yellow polka dot cardstock. Because this is a digital stamp set, I printed all of the images from my computer onto Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. *To learn more about digital stamping, please read here. I colored in all of the printed images using Copic markers and added highlights to some of the images using a white Uniball gel pen. I added some grass to the card using the Whimsy Stamps Grass and Cloud Edger dies. I cut the grass from Rich Cactus sugar stock. Then I began to adhere the images to the card using foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of Dazzling Pat to some of the images for added sparkle.

Hello friends and happy Sunday! Christmas is now officially over and we're not going to talk about the Christmas cards that I failed to send out this year! It's true. . . Things got terribly busy at work for me this month and I knew that I needed to send them, but on December 19th (the day I dedicated to actually addressing the envelopes) I decided, "ah, what the heck, it's too late now anyway!" And there you have it! I did not send Christmas cards this year. Not a one.
But, here's looking up to a brighter future for my Valentine's Day cards. . .
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Rich Cherry cardstock. Using the Stitched Nesting Rectangle Dies from Gina Marie Designs, I die cut the second largest rectangle from Neenah White Solar Smooth cardstock. I also used this same rectangle to cut a piece of love themed designer series paper (source unknown). I used about 2/3 of the white cardstock on the top and 1/3 of the red love themed paper on the bottom. I splattered Black Taffy sugar cubes on the top half of the white cardstock. I printed the digital copy of the Barely Awake stamp set on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and then I colored in the images with Copic markers. *Note - you will see the bear on the left was actually holding a mug in the original digital image, but I simply colored in another heart and added it over the mug. I used my Scan and Cut to cut out the images. I adhered both bears to the card with foam adhesive. I die cut a small red heart for the upper right corner and added the sentiment to the middle of the heart. Lastly, I added a coat of Dazzling Pat (which is like Wink of Stella) to both bears for added sparkle.

Hello friends and happy Monday! Can you believe that we are only TWO days away from Christmas!? Today I am taking a break from Christmas themed cards to share with you this fun stamp set from RG Avenue called "Sweet Celebration." This digital stamp is part of the December Designer Release. After seeing all of the sweets included in this stamp set there was no way I was going to pick between them! So, I decided to make a slimline card fitting as many yummy treats on this one card as I possibly could!
Yes, this is what I call a happy balance. And by balance, I mean ALL the treats! : )
The base of this slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". The base cardstock is made from Berry Burst cardstock. I cut a 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Bristol Smooth cardtock and ink blended two colors of Distress Oxide inks in Antique Linen and Pickled Raspberry. I then ink splattered Berry Burst all over the card before adhering it to the base. Because the Sweet Celebrations stamp set was a digital stamp set, I printed out the entire sheet of stamps and colored in all the images with Copic markers. I then fed the colored sheet through my Scan and Cut to cut all the images for me. Yay for no fussy cutting! I then began to adhered the images to the card in a layout that was pleasing to the eye using foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly I added a coat of Dazzling Pat to all of the sweets for added sparkle!
I hope you have enjoyed today's super sweet card! As always, thank you for taking the time to visit.
