Its Friday Yay.... and there' still time to join in the fun at Your Next Stamp with Challenge #32. 


We have a Color Combo or Sketch you can use.. if you are feeling really crafty use them together! 


I'm using the cute set Waddles Rainbow fun and the coordinating die set and some fun Sparkly Gumdrops from the Give Thanks, Ice Ice Baby and Holly Jolly collections. 


I created a card base using the Sketch and then I stamped the penguin and Cloud images onto a scrap piece of paper and colored them in with Copics and cut them out. For the focal area I die cut a piece of card stock using a Stitched Square die and I added some blue to the background with some Tumbled Glass Distress ink. Then I stamped the rainbow image and colored it in with Copics. I added the Penguin and clouds to the rainbow and adhered that piece to the card front using some Foam adhesive. 


I die cut the Fancy Thanks Die from some Black foam and then I adhered it over the clouds. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of White card stock and adhered it just under the Thanks. I wanted a bit of Sparkle so I added some Sparkly Gumdrops in Rainbow colors.

Paint the Town Red!!

Wednesday, February 10, 2016


It's time for our Monthly Design Team dare at Your Next Stamp and this month we're painting the town Red!!! Valentine's is right around the corner so we are created projects using the color Red. 


I'm using the fun new set Celebrate Sweetness along with the new Cupid Gumdrops . I stamped several of the images from the set onto a piece of Bristol card stock and I colored them in with 3 shades of Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then I added some shadow along one side of each image with a Light Grey marker as well. I trimmed the panel down to size and added it to a Black Card Base with some dimensional adhesive. 


I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of the card stock in Black ink and trimmed it in to a Banner and then I added a banner created with some Red Polka Dot paper. For a bit more of the Red and Black I added some Gumdrops from the Cupid collection.

Spring has Sprung!!

Tuesday, February 9, 2016


Hi everyone... It's time for the Right at Home new Release Blog Hop!! 


This month Nicole has added 2 fun new Spring themed sets and a Fun Background Stamp


My first card uses the new set Hoppy Easter and some of the new Flowered sequins she's added to the Shop. I created a bright fun shaker card using some dies from Mama Elephant and papers from Doodlebug Designs. I stamped the images from the set and fussy cut them out and I heat embossed the sentiment in White. This is such a cute set and perfect for all those Easter Projects!


For my second card I used the new set Let Love Grow.. I went for more of a Neutral card and I used some Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers for a watercolor look. 


These set is perfect for all those Gardeners out there... And it has some great images to build with. I created a Sky background wash and then I added some ground with some Brown shades of the markers. Once that was dry I stamped the leaves using the marker directly onto the stamp as my ink. 


I stamped the sentiment in the upper corner. I stamped a few dots in the same color of maker I used for the sky around the image as well. I die cut the panel with a Large Stitched Rectangle die and added some twine along the lower edge. I adhered the panel to a Kraft colored card base. 

Be sure to hop along to the other Design Team members to see more fun projects with this Release.. Stephanie's Blog is up next!!

When I first saw this new set Celebrate Sweetness I had this card idea right away... I turned the Cotton Candy into Rock Candy. I colored each image in with Copics and then I added some Distress Stickles in Clear Rock Candy to give them a Sugared look. 


I die cut the images with the coordinating dies and adhered them to a fun background I created with a Stencil and some Distress Ink. I cut the background panel out with the Large Stitched Rectangle die and added it to a Blue Card base. For an extra bit of sparkle I added some Clear Gumdrops. 


For my second card I used the fun new set Happy Heart and I colored the image in with some Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers for a watercolored look. I die cut the panel and a piece of pattern paper with the Stitched Rectangle dies and added them to a Grey card base. 


I wanted to bring in a bit more of the pink from the heart so I added some of the Strawberry Gumdrops! This image is so cute colored all soft like this.
