Psalm 96:12

Hello there!

My card for you today was inspired by two challenges, Splitcoast Stampers SC1005 and Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, Spring Flowers.

For this card I’ve used stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink, Vase Collection 15 and Psalm Reflections 96:12.

Inks are from Concord & 9th and patterned papers from Authentique.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

Knit with Care


Hi Friends!

I’m back with another fun card using dies and paper from Concord & 9th.
I’m about a week behind in the sketches on Splitcoast Stampers, but this card was inspired by SC1004. Pop on over to SCS and check out all the great inspiration!

My Favorite Princess

Hi There!

I’m here with a card I’ve been thinking up for awhile now, as a fun way to use my favorite princess stamp from The Sassy Club! 

I wanted to use these hot foil stars from Spellbinders to create a cascading night look for the fairies to be floating down toward their princess. I think it works! It makes for a very tall card though, so it’s hard to fit it all in. 

I’ve also ran some gold thread lines up the sides to frame the scene and backed the frame with sparkly gold paper from Simon Says Stamp. It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the color inside the clouds is gold sparkle pen (it appears yellow in the photo). Sentiment is from another set at The Sassy Club as well.

Thanks for popping in for a look! Have a great day!

Big Thanks

Hello and happy Tuesday to you!

I’m back with a card I’ve made for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, “Anything Goes.” 

I’ve had this digital stamp from Sweet November Stamps colored up (using Copics) for a while now and just waiting for the right card inspiration. He is called, Thankful Cutie Boy (and he certainly is!). I love all of Amy’s cuties, but this one reminded me especially of my sweet son, so it warms my heart extra!

I’ve also paired him with die cuts from MFT stamps and patterned paper from Doodlebug Design.

Out of this World


Happy Tuesday, Friends!

I recently got a bundle of fun new stamps from Scrappy Boy Stamps that are in the likeness of some of my fave things in pop culture. So I had some time to get inky last night and started with Future Family.

I’ve also paired this stamp set with the classic tv die cut from MFT Stamps. I spied that Scrappy Boy Stamps also has an awesome tv die in their shop, but since I already had this one I spent my coins on another Scrappy Boy stamp set instead (more cuteness coming soon).

Future brother and sister are colored up with Copics and the papers are some “retro” aka retired patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket.

Care Bear Stare



I’m back with a card that makes me so happy - - thinking about growing up when Care Bears first came into the world! I looooved Care Bears (and still do) so I was thrilled to find these cuties over at The Sassy Club that are reminiscent of the iconic friends in Care-a-lot; a stamp set called Eighties Bears. I could have colored them up in many different combinations, but for this first time getting inky with them, I chose my 4 childhood favorites.

I’ve also used this really cool rainbow die cut from Picket Fence Studios.

Thanks for stopping by to take look!

Spring Thanks


Hi All,

I’ve been itching all week to get into my crafty space and work with sketch 1002 over at Splitcoast Stampers, as well as create a submission for the Wednesday Spring challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

I’ve been anxiously waiting for the right inspiration to hit to work with these new dies, stamps and colors recently released from Concord & 9th.

My card is not an exact match to the sketch but I hope you can see it was inspired.

Please check all the amazing submissions on SCS using this sketch and also check out my Instagram page @kensley.mymindseyecreations

Let’s Party


Hi All!

I hope you’ve had a great week! I’ve been working on this fun birthday card for the Lawn Fawn All Things Birthday challenge. I really wanted to try my hand at the “Give it a Whirl” die set again. I think these interactive cards are so much fun!

Here is my finished card using ‘Hang in There’ sloth set and sentiment, plus party hats and streamers from ‘Party Animal.’

Here is the spin halfway

Here is the inside with embossed sentiment

Bethany’s Card


Howdy Friends! 

I can finally share with you the card I made for my niece’s birthday, now that it has been gifted to her! I could not believe how much this stamp Dale by artist Mo Manning for Mo’s Digital Pencil looks like my sweet niece! And then even more, I found this rustic farmlike patterned paper which said ‘60% sweet 40% sassy’ and that is also spot on! heehee

I’ve colored this cutie up with Copic markers and added a little bit of sparkle in a few subtle places.

Thanks for taking a look! Be sure to follow me over on Instagram @ kensley.mymindseyecreations

See ya soon!
