Hello, Darling

Hi, guys! I have a really cool card to share with y’all today! I tried some no line coloring using a beautiful rose stamp from Altenew. The color inspiration came from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge. Check it out-


I really liked the coral color and had the perfect Copics to recreate the right shades on my floral image.


I simply stamped the image in a light gray ink and colored it in! I freehanded a stem and some leaves, which could be better, but I think it turned out well. The sentiment comes from Occassional Labels by Mama Elephant. I added the panel to a light kraft colored base and some sequins finished it off.

I’m thinking this will be one that goes to Cher. 🙂


Hey, Honey!

Hi guys! If anyone remembers, I was head over heals for the Bitty Bears that Birdie Brown gave us a little while back. But I’ve actually only made a couple cards with them. So I was on a mission to use one of my favorite bears in the set for this weeks sketch at the MFT blog.


Within the the smaller framed in portion of the sketch, I thought that the tiny bear would feel at home. Check it out-


I started by creating a couple frames with the  double stitched rectangle dies. Then I did some stenciling with distress inks to create some yellow clouds. Next, I used a “hey” die with yellow and black card stock for my sentiment. Then I popped up the little bear with a foam square. And you can’t really see his face in the photo, but I used a black glaze pen on his eyes and nose. Finally, a sprinkling of clear Nuevo drops added a finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by!

Call Me Debby

Hey, everyone. If you’ve been around the card making industry for a minute, you know who Debby Hughes is. And I think she is incredible. So I wanted to channel my inner Debby and create a soft, floral, masterpiece. I got some more inspiration from the Color Throwdown challenge-


So when I saw these colors I knew I wanted to try coloring with Copics in gray card stock. Here’s how it turned out-


I first stamped the image using my stamping platform with Versamark, I heard you’re not supposed to use Copics on embossing powder, so I didn’t, but who knows if that’s a real thing or not. Anyways, I colored with a pair of pink Copics. Then I put the panel back in my stamping platform and inked it up again with Versamark so I could white heat emboss the rose- which is from Altenew. I foam mounted the gray panel onto a kraft card base and added a sentiment label from Mama Elephant’s Occasional Labels set. A few splatters of white ink and a trio of Pretty Ponk Posch sparkling clear sequins finished this card.


Thanks for for stopping by and go show Debby some love over at limedoodledesigns.com!


I Miss You for Crafty Doodle Chick

Hi, crafty friends! Kevin here sharing a sweet CAS card today. If you remember my post from last week, you know I am totally obsessed over the cutest little beavers ever from Neat and Tangled. So I just had to use them again this week. Check it out-


I started by stamping and coloring the beaver on the log from Beavers, Eh with Copics. Then I did a little die cutting with the new Linked Chain Oval dies from MFT. These ovals are so cool! I love the chain you get when you cut it out but the inside piece is just as cool! Then I grabbed a couple Distress Inks and the Rice Paddies stencil to create a little river that the beaver could be floating along. A simple “I Miss You” sentiment white heat embossed on some kraft paper was perfect for this little guy. I used the Speech Bubbles die from MFT to cut out the sentiment. And that finished off the card.

I hope you found some inspiration today! Make sure to head over to the Crafty Doodle Chick shop to get these goodies and alllllll the new stuff the shop just got! Have a great weekend!


Beavers, Eh?

Hey guys! If you follow me on Instagram you know I am a part of the Crafty Doodle Chick design team. My posting days are on Saturday, so make sure to head over to the blog to see the cards I create each week!




Hi, everyone! I’m not sure if you all follow the CASology challenge blog, but if you don’t, you should!!! Because I just joined as  design team member!!! I am SO SO SO SO SO excited. I have participated in a few different challenges over my card mkaing years, but CASology has always been my favorite. I love seeing how everybody interprets the cue cards each week. But, I don’t always have time to enter the challenges- so now I have an excuse- I NEED to get my card done!

Here’s the cue card for my this week.

I actually had to Google what this actually meant, I’ve heard it before and had a pretty good idea. People are always leaving comments on Instagram posts about a card being “swoon worthy” so I figured it meant something along the lines of “love it” or “jaw dropping.” So for my card I went with the love theme. Check it out-


Thanks for stopping by today to see my first CASology DT card, I really am looking forward to all the rest!! Have a great day!


AI Hugs

Hi everyone! I’m here today to share this sweet card with you guys. Valentine’s Day is coming up but I think this could be used anytime of the year, really. Check it out-


I used an awesome stamp from Art Impressions as my focal point. I colored that adorable couple up with Copics and fussy cut it out. A fun plaid paper and die cut window sentiment finished this card off.

I love adding adding patterned paper to cards that are still CAS. Keeping the paper use in small amounts and using interesting angles really makes an impact in my opinion.

I also used the current cue card over at CASology as inspiration.


Thanks for for stopping by and have a great rest of your weekend!
