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

Lucky to have You

Hello and Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you!

My card today features stamps from Purple Onion Designs and papers from Doodlebug. Colored up with Copics.

It also looks like there’s a 2nd ‘Bit of Green’ challenge going on over at Simon Says Stamp (this time for the Wednesday challenge). So I will submit this and play over there :)

Thanks for taking a look. This card is also posted on Instagram if you prefer to view cards on that platform. @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.

See ya soon!

Beautiful Friend

Hello Beautiful Friends!

I’m back with another new card and this one just happens to have a bit of green, making it perfect to meet the criteria for this Monday’s Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

For my card I’ve used stamps and stencil from Concord & 9th. The flower is shaded using Tim Holtz Ranger distress ink. The sentiment is from Spellbinders and is heat embossed in gold.

Big Hugs

Hello there! I feel like I’ve been doing a lot of green cards lately, so I apologize if this month seems monochromatic, but I have also loved where all the inspiration has come from!

My card for today uses sketch challenge number 1000 (!) over at Splitcoast Stampers. WOW they have been inspiring us with sketches for a looooong time over there! Please check out all the lovely creations made with Jeanette’s sketch.

For my card I’ve used all Concord & 9th from their February release.

Lucky to have You


Hello! Hope you’re having a great week and that March is treating you well. I actually can’t believe it’s March already! But here we are 😊

For today’s card I was dying to try out this brand new ‘Give it a Whirl’ die set from Lawn Fawn to create an active card. Who doesn’t love a good REVEAL. So I decided to inaugurate this die set by making a card for the Wednesday Simon Says Stamp Challenge, ‘add a sentiment.’  (oh and please avoid the zoom in — the glue it’s still drying! haha)

I’ve also used clover dies and sentiment stamp from Lawn Fawn as well. Shading is with Ranger distress inks and sentiment heat embossed. 

I was so close to making a birthday card instead, and that would have been perfect for the current Lawnfanatics challenge…but that just means I need to make another card with this extra fun Give it a Whirl die set!

Have a great rest of your week!

Those Who Inspire Us

Hello and Happy Sunday!

I was able to spend some much needed time in my crafty space last night and worked on a few cards for some very special people in my life, who are in need of some uplifting happy mail.

Here is one of them and it works perfectly for this week’s Wednesday Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp, “Anything Goes.” There’s nearly 200 entries so far, but it never hurts to throw my hat in the ring when a randomizer is selecting the winner 😊

The motorcycle stamp is one of my fave (retired) stamps from Unity Stamp Co. and the sentiments are from Stampin’ Up (outer) and MFT stamps (inner).

Wish Big

Hi Friends! 

This week was a blur. So many things keeping me from my creative space. I did find some time though to work with this week’s Wednesday sketch challenge 999 over at Splitcoast Stampers.

Here is my card using Kim’s sketch and stamp from Purple Onion Designs, Mr. Corgi and Balloons

I’ve had this image colored up for a few weeks now, but was just waiting for the right layout to inspire me. I hope you like it!

Be sure to give me a follow on instagram @kensley.mymindseyecreations and I will follow you back!
