Hi Stampers and crafty friends!
You might know I love all things magical, but I have always been drawn to fairies. Who is more fun and sassy than sweet Tinkerbell - my favorite bad girl? Long story short - I am absolutely in love with the Lavinia stamp line. If you're not familiar, you should absolutely visit their YouTube channel and see the amazing things their Design Team Creates!
I have been working on a few projects lately, but recently I ordered a whole slew of their product from Del Bello's Designs. "Finn by Moonlight" was my first creation.
Dinkles: Lime, Pink, Deep Yellow, Blueberry
Stamps: Finn, Field Grass, Fairy Path
Ink: Lisa Horton Interference Ink, VersaFine Clair
Other: Pink Posca Pen, White Gel Pen
I'm also going to give a huge shout out to Patty Del Bello for her excellent customer service - free shipping on orders over $75 and the Del Bello's Designs team who keep it real with their fabulous tutorials and commitment to social media accounts!

Snow days in New England are one of my favorite things in life. They usually include a crockpot of hot homemade soup and getting a few new cards made. In celebration of the first snow storm of the season I'm sharing a couple of snow themed cards I made during our Christmas break, using items from My Monthly Hero Premium Kit (October 2023)
These kits are so much fun to work with and always include multiple coordinating stamp sets, matching dies, fun embellishments like these vellum snowflakes, inks, sprays, cardstock and much more.
What's your favorite way to spend a snow day?

I'm not even sure who to give credit to for this super cute birthday card, it came with a set I picked up second hand but I think this card is too cute to not share.
Color combination is Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral from SU and my favorite black in from Hero Arts.
Thanks for popping by!

I recently found Kendra's Card Challenge and decided to play along. The challenge is to make 15 cards using 6 sheets of 6x6 paper. Kendra's sponsors are giving away lots of fabulous prizes if you play along. It was a fun way to use up lots of great things from my stash. Would you believe I have had an entire jar of gold leaf just sitting in my craft room waiting to be used since I was teaching remotely from home!? Let's not even talk about the silver and bronze that are still sitting there! Anyway, here's what I came up for the challenge:
There's still time to play along by clicking the link at the top!

Here's a fun alternative card I made with the May 2023 Paper Pumpkin - Adventures in Color.
This card is a 5x7 trifold here's the first flap inside:
In the middle I off stamped some images from the setti really make the inside as great as the outside.

I really like giving cards that are unexpected and different and I don't think most people expect a fun card like this when they open the envelope. Here's a view of the inside:
Stampin' Up!: Real Red, Basic White, Orchid Oasis
Hero Arts: Kiwi
Hero Arts Crimson, Butter Bar
Stampin' Up!: Orchid Oasis
Other: Fancy Flowers and Vases Stamps and Dies, Enamel Stickers, Doodles Stencil all from Hero Arts
I am really having the best experience with My Monthly Hero Premium Kits. There is so much included in each box and this is a great way to build a collection of supplies if you're new to stamping. I would highly recommend them!

I was so excited to get a few new items for my collection these past few months. But at one point I had ordered a Hello Dear Friend card kit, and this beautiful paper but forgot to add the Art Gallery stamps and dies to my order. I couldn't wait to start designing cards with this sweet paper so I used some elements from the kit to play around with some Z fold cards while I waited for those matching stamps to arrive...and these have been sitting in my stash of cards ever since, just waiting for me to grab some images and share them with you here. Do you love flowers and beautiful blooms? You're probably going to be seeing them here for a few weeks because I haven't had a chance to even use the other supplies in my new card kit, and this might be a shocker to some but I have even more flowery goodness in my Stampin' Up! shopping cart. Well if you're here you've probably stopped by to see my cards so here they are:
