Time for Tea......Sledging!!!

Hello everyone!! Hope you are staying warm. Today I want to share a card I made for Quick Creations online store. It is a Time for Tea Designs image called 'Sledging'

I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils. I used the Lawn Fawn 'Let's Bokeh in the snow' for the background. I also used a snowflake embossing folder. The "Hi" is cut using the Lawn Fawn 'Quinn's Capital ABC's'.  

This was super fun to make!! 

Check out Noelle's shop she has great prices, fast shipping and great customer service!! I know the Time for Tea rubber stamp line is being retired at Whimsy stamps so hop over to Quick Creations and see what she has. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Stay warm!!

Hello......Valentine's Day card

Hello everyone!! Hope you had a fabulous Christmas! I know I did but it went by so fast!! The end of the year is almost here, I can't believe!!! 

Today I want to share a card with you I made for Whimsy Stamps. I used a Jo Davies image called 'Heart Balloon' these images will be discontinued so get them while you can. I love these images especially this one. 

I colored her with Prisma colored pencils and added glossy accents to the balloon.  I also used the 'Hello word die' and the 'Bow die' which is on clearance.  I used one of my embossing folders which says 'Love u much' on the bottom half of her, you can barely see it. On the 'Hello', I die cut it 5 times and glued them together then heat embossed with some purple. 

I am so excited to be staying on with Whimsy Stamps for their next term....whoohoo!! Thank you Whimsy!!! They produce such high quality products and feel so honored to be able to continue on with them!!!! 

Please check out their store they have a lot on sale/clearence too!!

Whimsy Stamps "12 Days of Christmas" event....salt dough ornaments or tags!!

Hello everyone!! I have a super fun post to share today! It is for the.....

For all the details and how to win prizes please visit the Whimsy Blog

I have seen this on Pinterest for many years and finally have decided to make some.....Salt dough ornaments!! They are so pretty and so easy to make. Warning I have a lot of pictures.....:)

My daughters birthday is the 17th so I had to make a few for her. I will list all the products I used at the end of my post.


After you bake them I painted some with Distress inks. I also stamped the image before baking with Vintage Photo. 

These I embellished with some flowers.

Now these I used some Whimsy dies. I treated it like a stamp and used some Distress ink and lightly pressed it into the dough. The one on the upper left I painted with Distress inks after I baked them.

After you are done baking, stamping and painting I sprayed them with a sealer. You don't have to but I wanted the painted ink to stay in place. 

Here is a list of all the products I used. There is a lot.....:) 

Whimsy products:

Holiday Circle Postmarks....oops...they don't have this set anymore but this one would look wonderful too.....Snowflake mini letter seals
Winter's Jewel 1 die....GORGEOUS die

A lot I know!! 
Here is the recipe I used to make the dough.

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water

Bake at 200 degrees for awhile. Some of mine took hours. You can also let them air dry overnight or for a few days.

I hope you will give these a try they are so versatile and fun to make!!

I also made these super cute teacher gifts in my previous post. If you would like to learn more about them click here!!

Christmas gifts!!

Hello everyone!! Hope you are well with Christmas fast approching!! 

I want to share some Christmas gifts I have made this year for the teachers and some friends. I wanted something easy and fast!!

I made some pepperment bark(super easy) and filled these jars I bought at the Dollar General. Then I colored some great images from Krista Heij-Barber and put them on the top. Super simple and cute!!

I didn't come up with this idea. I got it from NurseTara04 on YouTube. I did change it by adding the colored images. 

Products used from Whimsy Stamps

I colored these cuties with colored pencils.
Hope you like them! 

Whimsy Stamps will be having a 12 days of Christmas event starting on Sunday, hope you will check it out and play along. There will be prizes to win. I will be starting it off with some great alternative ways to use your stamps and dies!!
