I Chews You

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I posted a desk full of gumball machines.  
I made this one into a card, but the rest will be tags for upcoming projects.  
This is such a fun set to play with and perfect for boy and girl Valentines!


The gumballs have a window sheet over them so it looks like glass.  The 5 cent lifts up to reveal a gumball.
The background is the new  Scattered Hearts Turnabout Stamp

Sweet Treats Embroidery Hoop Cards


I use the heck out of  this Sweet Treats Stamps and Dies
 I love these chocolates and the mix of fonts in the sentiments.  
I broke them out again this week to make a couple of cards combined with the Altenew Embroidery Hoops Dies.


I cut one inch strips of cardstock and adhered them to lightweight cardstock. Then ran them through the die cutter.  The oval and circle are slightly beveled on the edge as they meet the hoop, so it was easier to cut them like that rather than hand trim around the shapes.

The chocolates are colored with Copic markers, the sentiment is embossed in white embossing powder.

The background is embossed with the  Big Dot Embossing Folder.

Weekender Handbag Meets Garden Picks Flowers

I sent off a little happy mail this week to a friend in sunny southern California!  
I rarely reach for yellow, it's just not one of my go-to colors, but it is her favorite color, and now...why am I not using yellow more often??  Look how bright and cheery this is!!


The stripe on the bag is from Concord & 9th's Pinstripe Background Stamp.  
I put the darker yellow pieces on the front of the bag and then stamped it all at once so I didn't have to match anything up later.  It took a little bit of pressure by the seam, but stamped beautifully.




These are currently sold out but more are on the way.  Put your e-mail address in the 'notify me' section and you will get an e-mail as soon as they are in stock.  Should be any day!


I forget how beautiful these flowers are until I use them again - man, I love them!  They look complicated, but the easy to use diagram makes assembling so easy!

Valentine Tier Tray Kit

Hey Friends!  I have something fun to share with you today.

My friend is launching a new monthly subscription kit for Tier Tray Decor and I just got my kit, so I wanted to show you. 
As you know, I love my tier tray and have so much fun changing it up, so when she started this, I was on board immediately.  
The main think I really love about it is that it is truly a COMPLETE kit.  From the brown paper to paint on to the paint, sponges, embellishments, I did not need to add one thing of my own to complete it.  As you can see by the photos, I did change the colors from what comes in the kit, to match my decor, but had I not used my own paint, I would not have needed one single thing to complete it.
Now that's a GOOD kit!


You can find all the details at Idaho Custom Creations.  
To get this Valentine Kit, you must order by the 20th of January.  After January 20th you will get the next months kit.


These are the colors that come in the kit. Super cute, but won't match my stuff. *Ü*


The tier tray itself is HERE

Below is a little video for you on the kit, how it comes and how I styled mine.
If the video is not displaying properly in the e-mail newsletter, you will have to click over to my blog to view it.

Sunday Drive and the NEW Sunday Sunset Drive People

New people alert! *Ü*
Sunday Drive, the car die set I've been having so much fun with now has new characters.  A man and woman called Sunday Sunset Drive .  Spellbinders just keeps adding new and fun accessories for the car!
These guys different clothing options and hair styles and even arms. I love die cutting, I could cut and glue for hours, and these were fun to put together!


The man has a long sleeve and a short sleeve option and the long sleeve has a collar and cuffs if you want to make it a suit.  He has two hair styles and two arms, a straight arm and a bent arm.

The lady has two sleeveless blouse/dress options, two hairstyle (check out that cute up-do!) a dimensional scarf that can be one or two colors and an arm.

Also included are leaves and flowers for decorating the car or for making a bouquet as I did for the car on the right and four new sentiments.


Expressions of Love Sunday Sunset Drive 




The background on this one is ink blended with Distress Oxide inks (and not nearly as bright as they photographed) and lightly stenciled with the
Sweet Honeycomb Stencil .  The Silver Mirror cardstock is so hard to photograph, but makes the card pop with lots of shine.
The words forever and love you are from the new small die set called
Expressions of Love Sentiments.  I love that these words are modern script style but easy to read.

This one has a background embossed with the  Big Dot Embossing Folder.  I added a few hearts at the top and love you from the Expressions of Love Sentiments

If you have already picked up the Sunday Drive die set for you collection, you will for sure want to add these people as well.  Makes the dies set even usable!
