YOU Make Me Happy Card

Helloooooo again! It’s been a rough month and I’m happy to slowly be getting back to crafting!!

This card was inspired by several things…


The current Virginia’s View Challenge is for any type of friendship card.

The April 2016 Color Challenge over at Clearsnap has this inspiration photo:


And Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge is: Make It Girlie


I recently received Catherine Pooler’s latest Stamp of Approval set and have been wanting to ink it up, so I pulled out my ColorBox inks, MISTI and was able to easily make this CAS (Clean And Simple) card:


(Sigh, I still have trouble getting white pictures to come out even at full resolution. Sorry)

I love that the ColorBox Petal Point inks are shaped perfect for detail coloring on stamps like that top stamp… it’s one continuous stamp, but I was easily able to ink it in 3 colors!

Materials used:

  • Stamp of Approval – Beautiful World Collection
    • Catherine Pooler Designs GeoBuilders stamp set
    • Cas-ual Fridays stamp set: All About YOU
  • ColorBox Petal Point Classic Pigment Inkpads by Clearsnap
    • Pinwheel & Enchantment: Green, Pink, and Royal Blue
  • Core’dinations cardstock – white
  • MISTI stamping tool

Grab & Craft Quick CAS Card

Hello, again! I’m glad you could stop by for a quick look at a quick CAS (clean and simple) card I put together today.

Papertrey Ink challenged us to put together a project with things that we could grab and gather together in five minutes with the proviso that we use everything we grab.

I grabbed my new-to-me On My Couch & Additions stamp sets, some ribbon and sequins, adhesive, inks and cardstock:


That took just under 4 minutes. Of course I’m terribly slow at making things, so the rest took me about 25 minutes (and who knows how much longer to post!). The MISTI stamping tool was a great help! I love that you can keep stamping solid stamps until you get a nice impression. I was also able to stamp on top of the ribbon after I laid it over the stamped image to make it look like the tables are in front of the ‘baseboard.


Color in a few spots with my Tombow markers, add a few sequins and it was done! I can’t remember the last time I did a simple little card like this. It was fun!

Materials used:

  • Papertrey Ink stamp sets: On My Couch and On My Couch additions
  • Papertrey Ink dye inks: Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Hibiscus Burst & Raspberry Fizz
  • Tombow Dual Brush Pens: #N15, 296, 373, 703, 725
  • Aleene’s Super Tacky Glue
  • Advantus Sequins Holographic pink/purple
  • Misc. Ribbon & Cardstock

I’m playing along with the following challenges:

I’m glad you could stop in for a quick visit! Do come back when you can!!
