You Are So Sweet


Happy Monday! I was aiming to make an Easter card but when it came to the sentiment and trying to figure out how to create an Easter sentiment with non-Easter words, I scrapped that idea in favour of all-things-bunny.


I used the bundled up bunny from Warm Winter Wishes (also available at EH | SSS), the bookworm bunny from Reading Buddies (also available at EH | SSS), and both the coffee-loving and snacking bunnies from Coffee Loving Critters (also available at EH | SSS).


I coloured all of the bunnies with Copic markers, fussy cut them and set them aside to create the background. I used masking paper, life changing blending brushes, and abandoned coral and tumbled glass distress inks to create the ground and sky.


Then I stamped the sentiment from Coffee Loving Critters (also available at EH | SSS) with three shades of ink, adding a second heart to balance out the colours. To finish, I adhered the bunnies to the card base with three sizes of glue dots.

Coffee Love...


Happy Hello Evelin T. Design friends... Annette Allen here with you today and I am getting crafty with Evelin T. Designs: Coffee Art, Coffee Loving Critters and Warm Winter Wishes stamp set. Mixing it all up today. 

I am sharing two cards today, so lets get started.


This first card was created using the Coffee Art stamp set.

I created a colorful background using Altenew: Classy Stripes stencil and Amy Tangerine Actetate. I used Ranger Oxide inks: Spun Sugar, Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac. This fun image is colored with Copic sketch markers. I used some silver glitter paper to give it a little shine.

I used Scotch foam tape to give the image some dimension. I always like my cards to have a little pop. Foam tape is just fun.... don't you think?


This next card was created using the Coffee Loving Critters and Warm Winter Wishes stamp sets

The background was created using the same stencil and Ranger Oxide inks: Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio Picked Raspberry and Tumbled Glass. I went with a simple background but really oh so fun. I love stripes and well with all this color it is right up my alley.

The images are all colored with Copic Sketch markers and added to the card using Scotch foam adhesives.  More dimension....


You can get all these fun stamp sets on the Evelin T. Designs website HERE, plus much much more. AND more to come. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a fantastic week!

Love This | Traveler's Notebook with Patricia


Hi Everyone!!  I'm excited to be back again this month to share my first memory keeping project using Evelin T Design stamps!  This is a spread in my Traveler's Notebook using the Good Tidings to You stamp set.

I knew I wanted to include hearts, and I thought the adorable bear and bunny would be a perfect accent to my spread.  I first stamped and colored them with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.


Then I stamped 'peace love joy' from the same stamp set onto white cardstock using black ink and die cut hearts from the cardstock.  Next, I cut a circle heart from my Silhouette and backed some of the hearts with leftover pieces from the stamped cardstock, and then adhered my stamped die cut hearts to fill in.  I balanced the colors by using softer colors with the bold red from the circle heart and the bold black and white from the stamped die cut hearts.


I absolutely love the look of stamping and die cutting these hearts as well as backing the hearts from the Silhouette cut file.  Gives such an amazing look to your project!  I placed my photo first, and then finished by adding more hearts and embellishments.  To not take away from the design, I added my journaling to vellum and stapled near the top.


Thank you so much for letting me share this memory keeping project with you from my traveler's notebook using the Good Tidings to You stamp set!  Happy creating!!

Thank you for being you



Hey Hello!  It's Amy here sharing a quick card set that I whipped up especially for today.  It features the beautiful Evergreen Foliage set:


I knew I wanted to color up the Evergreen Foliage set and decided to show a super simple design with minimal coloring.


I love coloring but sometimes you just want to design a quick card.  The fastest way for me to do multiple designs is to keep the overall look the same but change the color.  Since the design is so clean + crisp, I decided to add a dry embossed background.


I was going to change out the Foliage image but decided since the one was already set up in my Mini MISTI I kept all the stamps the same.


It was super stress free putting this set together.  These are some of my holiday thank you's.  I'm super tardy sending them out but I love the design :)


I hope you have an amazing week!

Rustic Coffee, You, and Happiness

Hello! Heather Hoffman here this morning with a card a fun card to share with you using the adorable Coffee Loving Critters stamp set. Do you ever just have some pattern paper you want to create something with, and base a card around that? That is pretty much what happened for this card!


I had this adorable Echo Park Little Lumber Jack 6x6 paper pad, so I pulled out a few of the coordinating papers to layer up. I die cut a rectangle, and then a heart window in the center of it using a couple of Simon Says Stamp dies, then layered it over some of the woodgrain paper


Next, I stamped those adorable mugs from the Coffee Loving Critters stamp set, colored in the "coffee" on the inside, and paper pieced the cups with some of the pattern paper in the pad, adding a bit of shading and depth with a Copic marker. I also added a layer of Glossy Accents to the coffee in the cups to add some shine.


I layered those with foam adhesive over the heart, and then stamped a sentiment on a strip of white cardstock from the same stamp set, and colored in the little heart with a Copic marker as well, then mounted that with foam adhesive under the coffee mugs.


Finished off by trimming some of the paper into strips, adding a torn edge, and attaching with small staples in a criss cross pattern.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!

VIDEO TUTORIAL | Chinese New Year Card


Today, I'm sharing a Chinese New Year card with a video tutorial. I love making Chinese New Year cards every year, especially if I have the appropriate animal stamps for that zodiac year. As it turns out, this Saturday, January 25, 2020 is the start of the Rat Year and I'm a rat! My husband and son are also rats so this is a big year for us.



I used three stamp sets, including Good Tidings To You (also available at EH | SSS), All Hallow's Cuteness (also available at EH | SSS) and All Is Calm (also available at EH | SSS). The two mice are from Good Tidings To You, the mushrooms are from All Hallow's Cuteness and the sentiment is from All Is Calm.


I stamped the images on to a watercolour panel. I also created masks for them so I could sponge the background before watercoloring the images with distress inks. After all the colouring was done and the panel dried, I heat embossed the sentiment with gold tinsel embossing powder.


To finish, I embellished the card with a strip of patterned paper, a strip of gold glitter cardstock and gold star sequins. I hope you enjoyed this out-of-the-box project using Christmas and Halloween stamps to create a Chinese New Year card!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
