Sending Smiles

Good Morning!  I'm sending smiles to you in the form of a new creation….

Your Next Stamp had a sale last week that I was able to take advantage of - whoop whoop!  so I inked  up my new stamps for this week's YNS sketch challenge!

I used Woodland Cuties stamp set and dies along with We R Memories Happy Camper patterned paper.

I stamped and coloured the sweet little fox with my copic markers, die cut it and popped it up onto my patterned paper.  The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

I added a few little YNS gumdrops and tied some twine (so addicted).

Thanks for coming around today for a smile!

It's your baa-thday!

Sometimes you make a card that just doesn't cut it - you know what I mean?  So much of your creation just is not working, however in the interest of fair play - I figure I would post it anyway.

When I turned around to file it - my daughter had snatched it up for her friend - "Perfect!" she said - so who knows?!! lol

Paper Smooches SPARKS have a challenge up and running - due tomorrow by the way.....

Take a look at this inspirational beauty!

I used several Paper Smooches sets on my card - Eco Friendly for the sun, Party Posse for the sweet little lamb and sentiment,  Sunny Side Up for the clouds and sunglasses and Word Salad for the "hello".

I paper pieced the sun and put some cool shades on the little lamb because he's just too awesome!

A few little baubles and some twine and it was good to go- so my daughter says!

Thanks….Southwestern Style

Hello hello!  Just popping in with another pretty colour combo from The Color Throwdown!

This week's colours are pink, green, kraft and gray- a little different but I always think to myself -  if there is green involved - then I can stamp flowers!

I began by stamping an arrangement of borders from the Southwestern Style stamp set from Papertrey Ink onto Vintage Cream card stock in Classic Kraft ink on an angle for a bit of interest.

 I die cut a Kraft card stock panel using the Stitched Rectangle Dies - (I was inspired by Amy Scheffer's use of these dies!)- and layered my stamped panel on top -so perfect!

I adhered those two panels to another Vintage Cream die cut panel and then popped up the whole thing onto a Vintage Cream card base.

Using the newest Make It Market Kit - Nostalgic Notions - I die cut and stamped the flowers and leaves and then popped them up onto my border stamped layer.  The inks I used were Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst and Lavender Moon for the flowers and Simply Chartreuse for the leaves.

I finished my creation by stamped the sentiment in Smokey Shadow ink and adding a little puffy heart :)

Why don't you join in? You have until 6:00 pm on Monday!

The Color Throwdown #345

Good morning - just popping in with this week's Color Throwdown - another week of strikingly beautiful colours woohoo!

My Reverse Confetti Party Hats stamp set came to mind so I lovingly inked them up!  and that MISTI!!! ackkkk!!  It was just the thing to use to get those cute little party hats so beautifully Pure Poppy RED…... I just inked and stamped over and over - gorgeously easy!

I was a little worried that they looked like Santa hats lol, so after I ran the hat trim through my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, I used my marker and tapped each little dot with black.  - Perfect solution.

The Wonky Double Edged Confetti Cuts border and the Circle Garland Confetti Cuts each leant a perfect design to my party creation - and I could NOT help it - I had to add a bit of gold thread and ribbon- not part of the colour palette - but it sort of worked itself out in the end!

You have until 6:00 pm tonight to enter this delicious Color Throwdown challenge - give it a go!

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  If you love anything "Coffee" or for that matter "Tea"  or "Hot Chocolate" - then you are welcome to join in and show us your summer lovin'  Coffee Lovers creation!

I use my Simon Says Stamps "What's Brewing?"  mug, sentiment and steam for my card today - I stamped, copic coloured and fussy cut the mug.

The colorful "tablecloth" and flags (Stitched Flags Trio Confetti Cuts)  are from my stashed patterned paper and I love it - I searched for the cover of the paper pack, but you know how that goes---no cover anywhere.

Take a look over at this fun hop and join in - won't you?!
