You're My Universe

Hiya! Today I made a card to play along in the Paper Smooches Challenge. It's anything goes this time, and here's my card...
I started my creating my Valentiney galaxy background. I used the following Distress Inks... worn lipstick, picked raspberry, barn door, and festive berries. After I got it how I liked it, I splattered white acrylic paint on to make "stars". I used the adorable Space Cadet stamp set by Paper Smooches. I colored in the planets and the alien dude with Prismacolor colored pencils.
The greeting is also from the Space Cadet stamp set. To finish it off, I added clear wink of stella glitter marker, sequins, and glossy accents. 

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Heartfelt Thanks

Hello! I'm playing along in the My Favorite Things Color Challenge. I still don't have any MFT stuff, but it's still fun to play along. :) Here is my card...
I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More dies from MyCreativeTime for my card base and layer. I used the Stitched Sweethearts And XOXO Dies for my heart. I die cut it, and then did some masking to make it lined. I used Hero Arts Shadow Inks in Stone Wash, Lime Green, and Passion Flower. Pretty darn close to the challenge colors. :)
I used the Happy Thoughts set for my "thanks" die cut word, and for the "heartfelt" stamped greeting. I resisted the overwhelming urge to add sequins...this is for a guy. HA! 

I hope you're having a happy Friday! :)

♥ Nikki ♥

MCT Trending Now Thursday

Hello! It's Trending Now Thursday at MyCreativeTime. Today we are exploring the Wood and Lace trend. For my card, I stuck to just wood. :) I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies for my card base and layer. I stamped the Grainy Wood Background on the smaller layer. I used the Alpha Pack to stamp "wood", and the rest of the greeting is from the 100% Sweetness set. I masked off the first word so I could customize it. 
My little beaver was cut from the Oh Canada Cricut Cartridge. :) I gave him a heart from the Stitched Sweethearts and XOXO dies. Oh, and Mr. Beaver is on a circle from the Bunch Of Fun Circles dies.

The hippo is from the Year Four set. I colored him with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I used the Claire's ABC's set to create my greeting. 

I hope you're having a nice day! :)

I can't conseal how I feel ;)

Hiya bloggy friends! :) For my punny Valentine today, I cut the seal from the Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge. I made his face with 2 sets from PeachyKeenStamps, The Happy Penguin Couples Assortment for his eye, and The Moodies 1 1/8 set for the mouth. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies from MyCreativeTime for the panel and patterned paper layer on it. I also used the Fun Stitches Edges Dies from MyCreativeTime for the scalloped border. 
I used the Alpha Pack from MyCreativeTime to stamp my punny greeting. :) I stamped SEAL in darker gray to make it stand out more. I also went over the letters with a sakura glitter pen for sparkle. I added wink of stella clear glitter marker to the ball and his hat. 

I hope you're having a great week thus far! Just a heads up...tonight at midnight Eastern starts 24 hour craft day on HSN. :)

♥ Nikki ♥

MCT Made in Minutes Love Card

Hiya! It's Made In Minutes Monday at MyCreativeTime. For my super quick card today I used the Uppercase Fun Dies from MyCreativeTime. I also used the Stitched Sweethearts And XOXO dies for the heart to replace the "O" in love. I used glitter paper behind the letters. And to spice it up just a bit, I strung some beads and sequins to hang in the ♥. :)

You put the Hot in Hot Stuff

Hiya! Happy Saturday to you! I decided to play along in the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge. I don't have any MFT goodies yet, but I'm playing along anyway. :) Here is my card...
I made my hot sauce bottle with the We Go Together set from PeachyKeenStamps. The greeting is also from that set. The face on the bottle is from the Kawaii Face Assortment from PeachyKeenStamps
I used the 3x4 Journal Die and the Stitched Sweethearts And XOXO dies from MyCreativeTime to make my shaker. I made the card base with the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More dies. I used the Vintage Labels dies from MyCreativeTime for the greeting banner.

p.s. In case you haven't heard, you'd better get the PeachyKeenStamps you've been wanting! They're ceasing manufacturing stamps. :(
