SNSS Let’s Go to the Movies!

Did you know that Sweet N Sassy had digital stamps? They absolutely do and there are some very fun ones to choose from! And today I had so much fun playing with the Poppin’ By Digital Stamp Set. Complete with cute image and 2 fun sentiments!!

First I created a CAS card and because I couldn’t help myself, I took a little tutorial and learned to make a kernel of popcorn with polymer clay to embellish it with.

I also created a gift card holder for a movie gift card (you know…to round out the gift :)). 

I love it! However, it is now too thick for an envelope hmmm… maybe I will put the card and the gift card holder in a small box (haha – is that to counter-intuitive for a GC holder??)

I hope you like it!! Hop over to the Digital department of the store and have fun!!!

Bugaboo Stamps Saturday Challenge – Color

This week’s Saturday Challenge at Bugaboo Stamps is a “Color” inspired challenge...

When coloring, I generally fall back on bright colors so these calm colors were a little outside of my comfort zone but I had fun challenging myself to match them up in my image. My image (Flower teapot) is sweet and simple so I thought it would work with these colors. I also decided on a 4 bar sized card for this one – a little smaller seemed to fit.

I hope this inspires you! Hop over to Catch the Bug and join the challenge!

Tiddly Inks – Beach Party!

Hi All – Today is Fab Friday at Tiddly Inks and I have another sweet card for you using a Tiddly Inks image. This one is called Wryn Beach Party. Is she not A-D-0-R-A-B-L-E!!

She looked like she was walking out of the ocean on a grand sea adventure. So I decided to create a beach scene around her (the cute puppy and sand castle were included in the set). This one is going to be for my sister – she loves the beach and she will love this cutie!

I colored the whole scene up with Copics and because the scene was the main focal point, I made the layout kind of simple. For fun, I did glue on some glitter around the sand castle and then colored it to match the sand (I did this with my Copics), then I added a natural shell to the sentiment piece.

I hope you are inspired! There is still time to join in the current challenge so hop on over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

SNSS Thankful for you!

Oh my goodness! Today I used designer paper for my card. I have so much DP and yet now a days I almost always create my own backgrounds or go with clean and simple so it was pretty fun to match up my papers for this one 🙂

I created a focal image with SNSS set Girl Power which I masked and stamped over with just the flower from the Pretty Potted Florals set. Since it was already on my desk, I chose my sentiment from Keep in Touch Too (told you it was diverse!)

I hope you are inspired to pull something out of your stash and just have fun!

Get ready…Today at Little Miss Muffet is challenge #191 🙂  We have a NEW awesome set at Little Miss Muffet Stamps called Pick Me Up Truck and it has lots of images to merge with it. As mentioned previously, summer equals watermelon to me so today I have another watermelon card, I chose…Watermelons. Is it summer YES? 

As a P-E-R-F-E-C-T compliment, I used Polka Dot Pals Neomie. It makes me smile out loud!! What do you think??

I used my Copics to color up my images and then fussy cut them and mounted on a Distress Inked background.

SNSS Big Bold Sentiments!

For today’s cards, I used  the Script Outline Alpha Clear Stamp Set (new this month at Sweet N Sassy) to create bold sentiments on my cards. In order to let the sentiments speak  for the cards, I went pretty CAS on the cards.

For the first one, I inked up and colored a potted flower from Pretty Potted Florals, doodled a border around it (from my technique lover’s challenge at Splitcoast Stampers TLC690) and inked “hi” right on top of it. I added Glossy accents on top to make it pop!

For my second card, I used a stencil from Simon Says Stamps and some Distress Oxides to create a colorful background then stamped out “hello” on top. I went over the word with clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle then sealed in the sparkle with Glossy accents. (It looks cool up close:)

I hope these inspire you to use your alpha stamps in new ways!

Thanks for stopping by!

Bugaboo Stamps Saturday Challenge – Make a Splash!

Today I have another project for Bugaboo Stamp’s Saturday Challenge… The theme  this week is “Make a Splash” so I decided to create a Distress Ink “splashy – watery” background. With my Copics, I colored up the fish from the Under The Sea Birthday Set which I fussy cut and popped up on the card with fun foam. I cut out the sentiment from the set and doodled around it so it would pop. And that is all there is to this one – simple but awesome! I love it!

I hope this one inspires you to get inky! Hop over to Catch the Bug and join the challenge!
