One more card from last weekend’s crafty session. This card is for a young girl who loves anything bright pink! 

This uses A Pocket Full of Happiness Dragonfly dies. I love how she designs her dies to allow for easy die cut piecing if you want but also has a solid piece. The sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!


Rainbow of Happiness

This has been such a popular stamp and die set as it has so many possibilities. This card is for one of the young girls at camp. She is a little older and has started to grow out of the “everything pink” stage. The sentiments in the stamp set didn’t really work for my card so I used a Honey Bee stamp set called Pickup Lines.

The color palette used is Island Indigo (Retired), Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Pool Party. 

I hope your week is going well. Thanks for stopping by!



Adventure Awaits

A Pocket Full of Happiness Leopard Pattern Builder Stamp Adventure Awaits Travel Card Ideas Michelle Gleeson Stampinmojo

Yesterday, as a tropical storm worked its way across Florida, I spent time in my craft room creating cards for two young girls attending “away” camp for the first time. I chose mini slimline cards for their first round of cards. I thought the fun Leopard Pattern Builder Stamp set from @A_Pocket_Full_of_Happiness was perfect to use for these chic young girls.

The stamp set is super easy to line up and the color possibilities are endless. I chose a traditional color palette for the first card with a fun splash of Poppy Parade card stock for the heart. The sentiment is from the same Leopard Pattern Builder stamp set.

The second card again used Soft Suede for the outer layer of the spots and for the inside I chose Poppy Parade. I love the bold result. I kept the rest if the card clean and simple with a bit of linen thread and the sentiment strip.

That is it for today. These are super simple cards that pack a punch with the chose of colors and the fun pattern. I hope you have time to get inky this weekend.



GDP#345 Color Challenge

GDP#345 Color Challenge StampinUp To A Wild Rose Bundle Anytime card ideas Michelle Gleeson SU Stampinmojo

My creative juices are flowing in the morning so when I saw this week’s GDP Color Challenge I was excited to get into my craft room and get inky. The colors are a combination of bold and soft. I would never have put these colors together on my own.


Starry Sky is quite overpowering to the pinks so I used it as an accent. The flowers were created with a combination of Sweet Sorbet and Petal Pink.

The retired stamp set used is called To a Wild Rose. It is a three step stamp set. I envisioned using the pink layers of create depth to the roses. Similar to these real roses currently in my home.

Using Sweet Sorbet full strength for the outline of the flowers I then stamped off the Sweet Sorbet once for the full color stamp. The third stamp was stamped full strength in Petal Pink. One of the flowers was outlined in Sweet Sorbet and the other two layers stamped in full strength Petal Pink. It is amazing how light the Sweet Sorbet became after stamping off just once.

Then I added some (retired) gold “greenery” and die cut buds in Starry Sky card stock. A gold bee embellishment was the finishing touch. I didn’t add a sentiment as I am not sure who this is going to…thinking of you, happy birthday, or just because they will all work when the time comes.

As I work to regain my creative mojo challenges are great inspiration. Thanks for stopping by.
