[Blog hop] Inky Stamper Orb die!

Hello …..

Welcome to the Inkystamper blog hop! Wasn’t Chelsea’s project stinking adorable!!!

I’m here to show you the new orb die!!!

This die makes it so fun, fast, and easy to make ornaments.

Supplies: Inkystamper orb die, card stock, and red line tape. Optional: fishing line, stamps, marker, and stickers.

I thought it would be fun to make personalize ones for each member of my family.

I used the swirl stamp from dragonfly set one the first one for my husband.

This next one, I used the new Chicken set to make it look like a soccer ball for my son Ben.

I used the dragonfly set again on the orb ornament for my son Sam.

Seriously, these orbs are super easy and addicting to make.

Look, how adorable they look on a tree!

[FUN ALERT] As you probably read on Chelsea’s blog…I get to give away 2 limited edition InkyGreeting sets!!! So, leave me a comment and I’ll pick a winners on Sunday.

Thought, I would show you one last orb ornament. This time using the InkyGreeting set you could win.

Small Fry – Inkystamper

Love this new small fry box die by Inkystamper. So many different treats you can put in this small fry box. Here, I put lifesavers in it. I paired it with the cicada set also by inkystamper. Isn’t it the cutest little cicada you’ve ever seen?

What would you use this small fry box die for? Birthday treats in? To put candies in?Love to hear your ideas?

Hugs, K-


Inkystamper launch

I’m here to share a brand new stamp set from InkyStamper. The set has 11 stamps in it.

I watercolored the dragonfly image with peerless watercolors and the grad cap with copics and white pen!

Closeup of the details. Paper shaped wings and glittered them. Such a fun image to work with.

Head over to InkyStamper and pick up this set! So much you can do with it!

This card was made for a very special graduate- Lexi! She is my bonus daughter! Calls me Mama 2.

Congratulations sweetie! I’m so proud of you. Can’t wait to see all the amazing things you do.

Regal secrets- BJP February

Hi! Here, I am with my February Bead Journal Project.

febbjp1 febbjp2 febbjp3

February is the month my youngest son was born. The birth stone for February is Amethyst. Which is the color purple. So that is why I used purple. The color purple has a variety of effects on the mind and body, including uplifting spirits, calming the mind and nerves, enhancing the sacred, creating feelings of spirituality, increasing nurturing tendencies and sensitivity, and encouraging imagination and creativity. The white beads represent  pure, clean, and innocent. Then the locket is to hold the deepest secrets of your heart. Most wears of lockets put a picture or a lock of hair in it. A locket is entirely personal and sentimental to the wearer.

I am almost back on track with my Bead Journal Project. I am currently about half done with March.

Thanks for stopping in to visit today.

Blooming Love- BJP

Good Saturday Morning everyone-

I know I have got away from blogging but I am back. I will be posting every Saturday morning. Today, I am here to show you my Bead Journal Project for this year. Of course, I am all ready behind. But, I am hoping to catch up with week.  Tracey and I spent a lot of time talking about going outside our comfort levels and trying something new. So, I decide I would do circles with needle felting and embellished with beads.



Here is the piece as I got started.


Putting all the elements together.


Close up of it all done.



The finished piece.

Now let me tell you a little about the piece.  The birthday stone for January is Garnet and is normal red. Red garnets have long been associated with blood purification.  To me meaning a clean fresh start.  Blue is the color of loyalty and faith so I out lined some of the felting in blue.  I used red seed beads too to show power that you need to have a clean start. Yellow suggest freshness. the color gold is associated with wealth and prosperity which I believe comes with a new beginning. The key is to help you unlock all the doors you thought were closed or to hard to open. The wooden bead that says LOVE is to remind you to keep love in our heart.  Then you truly can have a blooming love all year long.

Thanks so much for stopping in.  Hope you enjoyed seeing my Bead Journal Project.
