Finally getting a chance to try out my Field Notes kit from @tayloredexpressions so get ready for some inspiration! The floral images from this kit fit perfectly in the Mini Slim Stacklets (I used the stitched version here and layered on top of my card).

I'm back with another card that tells a story for you today (Lawn Fawn products just seem to inspire that in me!). Today these little mice are having a picnic in the woods but they are soooo in love, making googly eyes at each other, they didn't even notice that the ants are stealing all of their food!

It's time for another installment of Get Cracking on Christmas! I am a huge fan of vintage Christmas ornaments so I couldn't wait to try these layering dies from @birchpressdesign for this months card. I combined it with a @concordand9th turnabout background I had created when I was playing around with their new inks - totally lucked out that they were a perfect match for each other!

Life sure is messy lately, isn’t it? And friends absolutely do help! This poor little kitty is crying over his spilled milk but he has a friend that is trying to help him out with a torn up box of tissues and a gentle pat on the shoulder – something we could all use when things are rough.

Just because you're starting to make Christmas and winter themed cards, it doesn't mean you have to abandon your beach-y themed stamps! This Build A Background Waves set from @tayloredexpressions works just as well for this penguin as it does in a summer scene!

It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of Cling and Clear backgrounds and this is one of my favorites! Since these shapes are so simple, I fussy cut a few of the flowers and popped them up along the edges of the sentiment section for a little interest.

And one more image from the Taylored Expressions Gus & Gertie stamp set - this time they are celebrating a birthday!

I love finding fun and unexpected ways to combine stamp sets I already own! Be sure to look for additional "grumpy" sentiments in your other @tayloredexpressions sets. And do you recognize those bushes? It's actually the treetop from the Treetop Background set flipped upside down!⁠ ⁠ ⁠ Cloud Stencil, Speckled Eggs, Van Design, Distress Oxide Ink, Grumpy Cat, Good People, Stencils, Card Making, Things To Come

I still haven't been able to step away from the new @tayloredexpressions Frosty Kit!  I’m pretty sure the little guy in the upper corner is supposed to be singing but he also looks a little surprised about being upside down, don’t you think?

Aloha friends! I'm a sucker for anything beach related so this background stamp from @simonsaysstamp was a must buy! I started easy and embossed over an ink blended panel.⁠ ⁠ Van Design, Simon Says Stamp, Projects To Try, Ink, Friends, Beach, Instagram, Amigos, The Beach
