Hippo Happiness Thank You Card

Hello my friends! What a beautiful, FABULOUS, autumn day it is out here today!  GORGEOUS weather! PERFECT even.  

I have a perfectly adorable Thank You card to share with you today.  I'm using the Hippo Happiness Stamp & Die Bundle.  This is seriously one of my absolute FAVORITES! 

Each of the little critters in this stamp set are just as cute as they can possibly be!  Each of them utilize a TWO STEP STAMPIN' technique so it's easy to get a multicolored image that fits together perfectly!

I used Coastal Cabana Cardstock for the base, Bermuda Bay for the big label, Whisper White for the smaller front label, and Melon Mambo for the accent strip. 

Versamark Ink is terrific for creating a subtle background on a piece.  That's another thing I love about this stamp set.  There are a few fantastic images that are perfect for backgrounds!

Remember, "No naked insides, and no naked envelopes"!  An easy way to do both is to do the same ON both.  Here, I just added that adorable little Ewe to help them coordinate with the front of the card. 

See the video tutorial for this card (and SUBSCRIBE to my channel) here: 

I always have fun playing with this set!  It's just so stinkin' cute! I hope you liked this project!

Until Next Time,
Happy Crafting!

What's Your Favorite Season?

Hello there friends! How are you today? 

What is your favorite season, and why? 

I can tell you beyond all doubt that my absolute FAVORITE season is autumn/fall.  I love the cooler crisp air, bonfires, corn mazes, hoodies, hot apple cider, pumpkin EVERYTHING, and the most gorgeous color palete ever created. 

When I was a little girl, I saw a photo of the Tennessee Smoky Mountains in a National Geographic magazine.  I immediately fell in love!  I carried that photo in my mind all my years growing up. It looked something like this one here (taken in the Great Smoky Mountains, East Tennessee, Mid October).

I brought my husband out here for vacation one year, and he fell in love with it too! So we sold our house, packed up and moved to the most beautiful place God ever laid a hand on.  We absolutely LOVE it here. And fall is the most magical time of the year. 

So, with that idea in mind, I chose to use the Forever Fern collection to create a beautiful encouragement card.  It reminds me of those beautiful fall days when all is peaceful and happy. 

I paired the Forever Fern Stamp & Die bundle with the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper.  They go together like chocolate and marshmallows!

Cajun Craze and Mint Macaron are perfect autumn colors, along with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.  The Basket weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo pack finish the card off nicely. 

I'd love to hear what your favorite season is, and why.  Comment below and let me know. :-) 

I hope you enjoyed today's card!

Until Next Time, 
Happy Crafting!

Dollar Tree Shadowbox Makeover

Hello there friends! I've got a fun Makeover project to share with you today. 

It started out as a cute little shadowbox from the Dollar Tree.  

But removing the backing, and replacing the insert, changed the look of the whole thing.  Then, adding just a couple sweet little stamped images from the "Ghoulish Goodies" Stamp Set and we have a fantastic Halloween decor item!

This was a super quick project, but a lot of fun too! I'm already on the hunt for my next Dollar Tree Makeover project! Stay tuned!!

Until Next Time,
Happy Crafting!

Kit Kat Treat Holder

Hello my friends! How goes?  Today's Make-It Monday is going to feature the NEW Beautiful Autumn Stamp & Punch Bundle and some super yummy little treats!

This little treat holder is super simple and easy peezy to make, which makes em a perfect gift for anyone you come in contact with! It'll put a smile on someone's face, for sure!

Since this is a Make-It Monday project, I have a youtube video showing how to create the box.  But you may want to print out this template too.  It gives you all the measurements of the paper & score lines, as well as the sizes of the DSP that I used to cover the box. :-)

In the video, I assembled the box and then added the DSP, but if you wanted to add the DSP first, it would go on like this:
