Saucy Bird - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi and I hope you are well.
I am using one of my favourite sentiment stamps again and pairing it with this silly bird who looks like maybe he's being just a little sarcastic!  The sentiment just cracks me up and is so versatile that you are able to use it on so many different cards.
We've had some changes to our challenges at Rubbernecker and it now runs for one month, and the theme is more general and very easy to follow.
The challenge can be found in our Facebook Fan Group, if you haven't already joined...what are you waiting for?  You have a chance to win a $10 certificate to the Rubbernecker Stamp Store and I don't know a single person who couldn't spend that in a stamp shop
Be sure to check out the Rubbernecker Stamps blog for tons of inspiration and also the  Rubbernecker Facebook Page.  There is also a Facebook Fan Page with lots of inspiration, updates on sales & product and a great place to post your Rubbernecker Stamps creations.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Mistletoe & Kisses - All Dressed Up Release


Hi there,
We have a new release at All Dressed Up and I was given Mistletoe & Kisses to use.  Here's a snap of the four new digi stamps which are available at the All Dressed Up Etsy shop for purchase now and great timing for the last minute Christmas cards we all need to get finished.
I'm not entirely happy with how this card turned out... once it's been photographed. the deer seem a little wishy-washy and faded so I wish I would have done them darker but it's done now so we'll go with it.  Another learning experience!
Be sure to visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog  to see what else was created by the team for this release.  While you are there, take a peek at the current challenge where the theme at the is always Anything Goes with the only rule to enter being you use an All Dressed Up image.  If you don't have any, they can be can either be purchased at the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop or downloading one of several cute freebies offered on the blog.
Join us for some fun and wonderful creations at the Facebook Fan PageFacebook Challenge (there is a theme for this one) and there's also a Pinterest page to view some more gorgeousness.
Thanks for stopping by and have a good week!

Dream Charlie - Little Blue Button Stamps

Hi there and I hope all is well with you.
I was pleased to be asked by Little Blue Button Stamps to guest design for the month of November and use some of the cute images so thank you for having me.
The image I chose for my first post is Dream Charlie and can't you envision the pictures of rainbows, unicorns, friends, fun activities, etc floating through her head as she dreamily has her hot chocolate?  
I admit, I did stamp the sentiment more than twice, thinking I must have got it crooked so for someone who is a bit obsessive compulsive about everything being straight, it took a bit to realize it's supposed to be that way and now it does give the impression of floating and dreaming so it is quite perfect for this image.
Be sure to drop into the Little Blue Button Stamp store to see all the lovely images and then pop by the Little Blue Button Stamps Blog for more inspiration.

Best Wishes - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi and welcome!  Here we are, my first November post and how did it get to be November already?  I'll probably wonder how that happened in every post... but really, where did the rest of the year go?
Today's card is CAS with some sparkle using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies!  I cut the butterfly and sentiment and added the Silk Microfine Pebble Blue glitter from the Beach Palette set.  The square mats are from the brilliant Frame It Stitched Squares and I quite like these, especially because they are large.  I make most of my cards 5.75" x 5.75" and there aren't too many large dies like this out there so they work perfectly for me.

Good Luck - Elizabeth Craft Designs

I made this card for Elizabeth Craft Designs awhile back and now when I look at it, it reminds me so much of a St. Patrick's Day card although that was not the intent at all.  I added glitter to the sentiment and used the Fitted Hexagon die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and filled it with those pretty sequins and bits from Little Things from Lucy's Cards.  I love those mixes because there's all kinds of little doo-dads and colours to brighten it up.

Giraffe Baby Card - Rubbernecker Stamps


Hi and I hope you are well.
I received some new Rubbernecker stamps and thought this little giraffe would make a great baby card.  What a haul that was... I received nearly everything on this card in my package from the giraffe stamp, the star die, the background stamp and the letters.  I love getting new stuff, it really kicks the mojo into gear!

Color My Flowers - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there and wow, where is the time going, here we are in October already!  
Today's project is a card I did awhile back and am just getting it blogged now, using the a few different dies and a stamp from Elizabeth Craft Designs. 
I spattered Tumbled Glass Distress ink onto the card base and before gluing the circle down, I sponged in more Tumbled glass so the circle area would be highlighted.  When finished colouring the flowers, I added some dots with a white gel pen.

Poinsettias - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there and I hope all is well with you.  
Today's project is versatile and you can use these glittery poinsettas for so many things such as a gift tag, a placard for a holiday dinner table and when those are done, you can remove the tag portion, wrap a gold string around the leaves and use the flower as a tree ornament.   It's easy to create and there is a tutorial here over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog on how I made it.  Admittedly for this project, I had glitter everywhere... in my hair, on the table, on my clothes but  I love the Elizabeth Craft Designs glitter and using it with the double sided transparent tape makes any project do-able and so pretty.  I used clear acetate for the flowers & leaves and after the glitter was added, heated each piece slightly with my heat gun and bent it a little to give some shape.
