I do want to add the stamp is done in a navy ink although it certainly does look black in the pic.

Foxy! - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi there and I hope all is well with you.  Seems to be a busy time for everyone and gotta love that sunshine!
Today's post is my DT card for Rubbernecker Stamps and I've used the cute Fox Stamp and Fox Die set.  The stamp is a clear set with several little foxes, those cute little birds and some sentiments.

Sightseeing in Paris - All Dressed Up New Release


Today is release day for four brand new digi stamps from All Dressed Up and each is cuter than the last.  For my card, I was given the Sightseeing in Paris image to use - I'm not so sure I coloured this correctly because I didn't think the brown arches were part of the tower but since I've never been there, I'm only guessing.  At any rate, I think this is a super cute image and the other three are equally as adorable. 
The card worked up quite quickly which is good because I was late getting it done. I coloured it with Copic markers and added the clouds with distress ink and a sponge.
Be sure to head on over to the challenge blog to see all the images (you won't be disappointed) and check out what the rest of the team did because there's lots of inspiration there.
While you are there, take a peek at the current challenge where the theme at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog  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.

Flip Card - Elizabeth Craft Designs

 
Hi there and I hope all is well with you.  Good here but so busy and I cannot believe it's June already... where is the time going?
Today's card is a simple little flip card and oh  my word... I just looked at this and see the patterned paper is sideways.  Brother... oh well, too late to do anything about it now but why is it that we don't always see those things until we get the photo up in front of us?

It's a fairly quick and simple card to create and there is a tutorial over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog on how I made it.
Be sure to pop the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog,to see lovely inspiration and tutorials by the rest of the team  and then on over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Facebook fan page to see plenty more creations.

Murray with Catch - Rubbernecker Challenge #35

Hi and I hope all is well with you.  Good here... the weather is great and I seem to keep busy.
Today is the beginning of a new challenge at the Rubbernecker challenge blog and the theme for Challenge #35 is Happy Birthday!  Murray went fishing again and it looks like it means hamburger for supper!  Today's card share is for a guy I need a birthday card and the person it's for loves to fish so this image is perfect!  This card worked up fairly quickly and for a change, it was a card that just kind of fell into place... everything went quickly and easily and I suppose the most difficult thing was getting the jute bow tied to look decent.

Baby Card - LaLa Land

Hi!  Hope all is well with you and you are enjoying the warm summer weather.  Today's card is one I made awhile back and I'm quite proud of it.  Not that the card is super wonderful but I'm so proud of the fact that I won a small battle with my Silhouette!  hahahhahah.... that thing is going to be the end of me!  I'm putting in a Christmas request early because I'd like to try one of those new Scan n' Cut machines but who knows, maybe I'll have the same woes.
This image is called Sending Smiles and is a digi stamp from La-La Land Crafts.  I thought it would make a perfect baby card and since I needed one, this seemed like a good time.  A little paper piecing for the balloon and some quick colouring and it's done.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Epstein the Owl - Rubbernecker Stamps

Isn't this one of the cutest little owls ever?  This is Epstein which is one of the new owl images over at Rubbernecker Stamps.  I just love those big orange eyes.  The pupil is already coloured on the stamp so I just added some dark grey and then whitened the highlights.  I am also using the new Nested Oval Scallop with Pierce die - those little pierces are so pretty and really add to the scallop, or at least I think so.
