Gardening: Get Kids Crafty May Blog Hop

Greetings! Welcome to the May Get Kids Crafty Blog Hop! This month, we had our kiddos create projects in the theme of "Gardening." You're in for a real treat. My family loves to garden, and I have a ton of gardening/floral stamps, so my daughter was really excited to pick through what I have and create a card that she gave to my mom for Mother's Day.

Miss R decided to work with the Garden Boots stamp set from Stampendous. She stamped a ton of images on to white paper first with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink from Imagine, then she colored them all with Memento Markers, also from Imagine. They are her absolute favorite markers, and she uses them a lot.

Next, Miss R painstakingly fussy cut all of her colored images and played around with the placement of them. She chose some colored paper, knowing that she wanted to use several layers. She chose to ink her card base up, since she couldn't find the exact shade of green she wanted in paper. She took her time and made sure things were to her liking before gluing it all down.

I really appreciate all of her time and effort that Miss R puts into her cards. She really knows what she wants to do when she's got an idea, and she works really hard at getting it "right." Needless to say, my mom LOVED her Mother's Day card, and Miss R was pretty proud of what she created. She truly loves to be crafty and work with all sorts of supplies. I'm proud of her. Now, if you haven't visited all of the stops on the hop, the full list is below. Please be sure to leave some love for all of the children that played along. Your encouragement means so much to them! I'm looking forward to next month's Get Kids Crafty hop, and I hope you will join us again. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
