You are You


Hello and happy Saturday!

I finally had a few moments to myself to sit in my craft space and work on a Mother’s Day card. I’ve used this week’s SC1007 sketch over at Splitcoast Stampers as my inspiration. And it just so happens this is an Anything Goes challenge week over Simon Says Stamp, so I’ll submit for that too 😊

For this card I’ve used retired designer paper from SU, stamps from Simon Says Stamp, Mamacita and Tim Holtz Stamper’s Anonymous, Love Notes. I also got out my old faithful heat emboss tool to give the hearts and script some texture.

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.

Thanks for popping in for a look. You can also find me on Instagram @kensley.mymindseyecreations if you prefer that platform
