I believe in you...


Every month Sweet November design team member, Allison Cope hosts a fun card swap in the Friends of Sweet November Stamps Facebook group. June's swap theme was fairies and I knew I had this cute digi scene already printed and sitting in the stack of images on my desk, just waiting to be colored. These tiny fairies and the jar are from the Little Bit of Magic vault release that came out a few years back. I put Fairy Brie and Fairy Beebe inside the jar that is lying on it's side and added Sonata from the Briar and Sonata digi set looking in at them from the outside. The sentiment is from the I Believe in You clear set, which I thought was a pretty fitting message to go with these magical cuties. Now that I know my swap partner has received this card in the mail, I felt it was time to share it here on the ol' blog.  :)

Enjoy the rest of your wekend!

So flippin' cute...

Hello again!

Today the team and I are reviewing the Summertime Fun clear release at Sweet November and this time around I've inked up one of the cute seals from the Tide Pool Pals set. He looks so happy to be lounging on the beach, simply living his best life, LOL! To help create that perfect beach home, I grabbed the older Seaside Cliffs Background Builder set and with a bit of masking made it appear to be of in the distance behind this sweet seal. It was nice that it was the perfect size to fill this mini slimline card too. With a fairly limited color palette this whole scene was pretty darn quick to color up and it really makes me smile.  :)

I will be coloring another stamp from the new release during my Live at 11am PDT over on my Adventures in Coloring with Amy Facebook page. Hopefully you can join me!

A super chill day...


Hey there!

I just can't resist playing with more of the super cute critters that make up the new Chilliezgraphy by Pei Summer Fun collection at Purple Onion Designs. With 12 new stamps to choose from I'm finding it difficult to pick a favorite but this chill kitty is definitely right up there. She is called, Tofu Time to Relax, and she has certainly found the best spot on the beach for a sunset cat nap. To help set this ocean side scene I paired Tofu with the Sunrise Sunset background that released last year, stamping it with the light Desert Sand ink for a more subtle no-line effect. The sentiment is another from the new Friendly Warm Wishes Sentiment set, made to compliment these new stamps perfectly. 

You still have through tomorrow to grab the whole bundle deal for 30% OFF, which is a really fantastic deal.  :)


Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Catherine Pooler

A berry sweet day...


Hello, hello!

The new Bountiful Blessings: Berry Sweet Day set at Sweet November Stamps includes two adorable berry picking cuties, one harvesting tart raspberries and the other filling her basket with sweet strawberries. They are both a bit smaller than the other Bountiful Blessings girls because I like to think of them as the little sisters of the bunch. This set is also still the current shopping incentive in the store, you can get it free in any order of $130 or more, but only while supplies last. 

This darling raspberry girl, with her fence full of delicious berries was paired with the older Horizon Lines: Spring stamp set to add a bit of detail back in the distance. I colored her up during one of the release weekend Lives and I got so many great suggestions from my fellow crafters, resulting in this sweet and sunny summer scene.

This little strawberry shortcake is enjoying a bumper crop of delicious berries and she even has enough to share with the cute quail who are always looking for an easy meal. I paired her with the Autumn Cottages Background Builder set to show how great they work for any season.  

Well, that's it for me today... thanks for stopping by!

You are tee-rific...



Hey there!

I'm back with another card using the new
Amongst the Pines collection by Stacey Yacula at Purple Onion Designs. This time around I went for a fun golfing theme using Bogey, Mulligan and the 18th Hole stamps. These cute critters look so happy to be spending some time out on the greens together. I paired them with the older large Mountains Background stamp to create a sense of distance beyond the perfectly manicured golf course. The sentiment is part of the new Great Outdoors Sentiment set and it really was made for these two.  :)

There are still a few days to take advantage of the limited time discount of 30% OFF when you purchase the entire bundle deal. But it is only good through June 15th, so don't wait too long!

Later gators!

Two more flower fairies...


Good morning!

We added two new 2x3 Monthly Flower Fairies with the Summertime Fun clear release at Sweet November Stamps, July's Larkspur Fairy and August's Poppy Fairy. These colorful cuties are the perfect addition to this ongoing series.

Larkspur Fairy is such a doll, with her short bobbed hair and her jaunty blossom cap. Her easy breasy attitude defines these long days of summer. Here I've paired her with the Wildflower Meadow Background Builder set to help give Larkspur a bright and sunny meadow to call home.  

Poppy Fairy is all curls and frills as she shows off her pretty, flouncy petal dress. Her floral seamstress skills also crafted a poppy pod cap to complete the ensemble. Once again, I inked up stamps from the Wildflower Meadow Background Builder to create a whole field of happy California Poppies extending back behind this adorable fairy.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you've enjoyed this new release!
