Be Beautiful - AALL Create

 

Something a little different from me today.  I really like the neat and quirky images from AALL Create and this little girl is the Be Beautiful set.  Because the look is so different for me, I'm not really brave so am gingerly stepping my toes in this water.  I sponged yellow distress ink onto the paper , stamped and coloured the image and then used the Overlapping Texture stamp with Hickory Smoke distress ink.  It's not overly creative but for my first attempt, I am pleased with the look.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good week!

Oddball Queen of Hearts - Stampingbella

 

These Oddball images always crack me up and I love every one of them!  This is Queen of Hearts and she's a fabulous diva.  There's a lot of colouring on this one which surprised me but worth every minute of time.  I couldn't decide on how to place the sentiment, whether it should be in a flag, a tag or nothing and I decided that with the detail on the image, I would not add anything else.

Thanks for stopping by!

Koalas, Clouds and Rainbows!

 

Today's card uses a combination of stamps and dies from my stash.  Rainbows were really trending for awhile so of course I had to jump on the bandwagon.  

I quite like  the My Favorite Things Happy Rainbows die which I coloured with copics and then added some Frantage.  The cute little Koala is Reverse Confetti's Bear Hugs.  This is a stamp set which every one of my grandkids like and they've all done some artwork with it at one time or another.  The clouds are also My Favorite Things and from the Stitched Clouds set.  The sun is Lil Inkers Designs Small Sun die - such a shame they closed shop because she had some of the cutest stamps and dies.  The heart is from the Verve Hearts die and the rectangle is Gina Marie's Stitched Rectangle.  There you have it, a total of 7 stamps and dies on a small A2 card!

Thanks for stopping by!

4 Leaf Clover - Colorado Craft


I'm a bit obsessed at the moment with these lovely Colorado Craft Anita Jeram line of stamps.  The whimsical nature of them really appeals to me and I've bought quite a few of them.

This one is from the 4 Leaf Clover set.  This is a cute set with a St. Patrick's Day theme of guinea pigs and clovers... a match made in heaven, right?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Thank You - Three Room Studio Stamps

 

Hi there!

Today's post is for Three Room Studio's Saturday Challenge and the theme is Anything Goes which has to be the easiest theme ever. 

We have two new stamps sets plus two new sets of coordinating dies and I've used the Thank You sentiment from the Aww Thanks set.  This has to be the quickest card I've ever made but I needed a few thank you cards for my stash and this is a perfect set for it.  I also used the pretty flower from the Mom's Hibiscus set and added some enamel dots.  Easy Peasy!
Including myself, the following team members are also participating in the challenge.

Everest Next - Penny Black

 


I have had this Penny Black Everest Next stamp for ages (like years!) and never got around to inking it up.  It was on a wood block and that was partly why it wasn't used because I store my wooden stamps in a drawer and sometimes they don't see sunlight for a very long time.  This image won't fit on an A2 card but it's perfect for a slimline so I've finally used it.  Those little mice are so cute!

Embossing the My Favorite Things Snuggle Bunnies sentiment (I think this set is discontinued) onto black cardstock was just right for this image and I also used Mama Elephant's Slimline Card Basics die.

Bucket and Spade - All Dressed Up Challenge

 

Hi there!  Today's card is for the April challenge at All Dressed Up stamps and I've used Bucket & Spade as my choice of digi images this month.  This cute little gal is ready to go to the beach regardless of the dump of snow so we've received over the last couple of days so this card seems very timely to me.  The snow  is actually a good thing, it's heavy and full of moisture so it will help out the new planting of grass we did this week.

I am such a fan of the Impression Obsession sentiment stamps, it seems like there's one which fits every occasion perfectly.  This is The Beach is Calling which I've had for ages and this seemed like a good time to use it.

Be sure to head on over to the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog where you can see all kinds of inspiration from the rest of the girls on the team. Join us for some fun and wonderful creations at the Facebook Fan Page, Facebook Challenge (there is a theme for this one) and there's also a Pinterest page to view some more gorgeousness.

Oh Happy Day!

 


Hello and I hope all is well with you and yours.
Today's card was a bit of an experiment and took a lot of help from my sister who is brilliant with the Silhouette Cameo.  I am not.  I asked her to make me a Big Hugs file and it must have taken her all of 10 minutes so she sent it back to me and I cut it with the Scan n Cut.  The little mouse is called Oh Happy Days by Stampabilities.  I'm not fond of mice at all but this little one does make a person smile.
The Your Next Stamp Stitched Scallop Rectangles was used as a base over the pretty aqua So Punny paper from Doodlebug designs.  Thanks for stopping by!
