Pet Shop Planner

Today's project is my weekly planner spread with Craftin' Desert Divas.

To complete this adorable layout, I used two digital stamp sets...the Planner Basic Bundle and Pet Shop.

I used patterned paper from my stash and colored all the images with colored pencils.

I printed my digis on sticker paper, colored the "To Do" and "Weekend" stickers using markers and then cut them out using my Scan N Cut.

That's it for me today...until next time~

I Love You S'more!

Today's design project with Atlantic Hearts uses their newest sketch and stamps from 3 different sources.

The background was repeatedly stamped using the Love script stamp from a past Paper Pumpkin kit in brown Memento ink. The pink swirl was repeatedly stamped on kraft cardstock using Distress Oxide ink.

I didn't use any diecuts on this card -some fancy scissors, a notched corner punch and a paper piercer were used instead. 

The S'mores image and sentiment are a digital stamp and I colored it up using Chameleon colored pencils.

That's it for me today...until next time~

Floral Fairy

Today's design team project with Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamps uses this super cute Floral Fairy stamp. (click on the link to find her in the Etsy Shop) I will also be entering it @ a2zScrapbooking for "Flower Power", @ Make My Monday for "Things with Wings", @ The Cutie Pic Challenge for "Delightful Digis", @ My Creative Scoop for "Color Inspiration Link-up" and @ Creatalicious for "Anything Goes/Friend/Friendship".

I colored her up using my Chameleon colored pencils and then cut her out using my Scan N Cut machine.

The inside was done using stamps from Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kits and Bermuda Bay ink.

I used pattern paper from my stash to cover the A2 white card front and die cut the frame from Bermuda Bay cardstock. The clouds were dry embossed using an embossing folder that I had first inked up with light blue ink before sending it through to be embossed.

Quick and easy, yet this card has a nice visual impact -I just love the way it turned out! 
Until next time ~

Spring Chick

Today's card is my first design team project using the April Moodboard over at the Craftin' Desert Divas FB Gallery

I used the Cute Chick digital stamp and colored her in with colored pencils. I die cut the patterned paper using the Crazy Stitched Frames -using all 3 sizes and adhered the middle one using foam dots.

Inside sentiment comes from the Simply Said stamp set.

 The sentiment on the hand trimmed banner is from the Birthday Sentiments digital stamp set. The sequins came from the Shimmer sequins pack and I sprayed the patterned paper with a Shimmer Spray. It's really very pretty in person!

This card went out in the mail to one of my nieces this week -hope she likes it! 
Until next time~

Holly Jolly Christmas

Today's design team project for the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge follows along with the "Jolly" theme this month. 

Using patterned paper and watercolor paper, I pieced the front of the 6 x 6 card quilt style.

The main stamp set was one I got from The Angel Company many years ago. but the sentiment on the front came from an Amuse Studio set.

I diecut the water color panel, used my stamp positioning tool to get a good, dark, crisply stamped image then colored using watercolor pencils and a waterbrush.

Until next time~

CAS Petite Floral Hello

Today's card is my design team project for this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

I will also be entering it @ Stamps & Fun = Creativity for "Clean and Simple", @ Get Creative for "No Pattern Paper", @ Simon Says Stamp for" Trio of Something" and @ Just Us Girls for " Wild Card Week: Clean and Simple".

I love the look of colored pencil on Kraft cardstock, so that is what I did here.

The sentiments, butterfly and flower are from various SU! Paper Pumpkin subscription stamp sets and the banner is from a weekend banner/planner stamp set.

The scallop die cut is from Fun Stamper's Journey and the stitched square is from Itsy Bitsy.
This card is a cute and petite 4" x 4" square and I did use a corner rounder too.

Until next time~

Donut Worry!

Today's design team project is for the April Mix It Up Challenge where it's "Anything Goes" and the optional technique this month is bleaching. Here's where I have to admit that I do NOT have a single drop of bleach in my house, my card doesn't fit the technique category this time... sorry!

Instead, I stamped the donuts with Versamark ink on glossy card stock and then ran my brayer over top using a rainbow ink pad to get a look that is similar to a bleaching technique.

I colored the kitty and donut using alcohol markers like Bic and Sharpie...not too shabby for office supplies! My daughter and her husband moved into their first home this weekend and I made this card for her - to help her smile through all the stress of the move...'cuz donuts and kitties are two of her favorite things! Needless to say, she LOVED it!

Until next time~

Welcome Little Lamb

Today's design team project for Crafting' Desert Divas is my second card for the March MoodBoard Challenge but I will also be entering it @ Pile It On for "Circles &/or Squares", @ The Cutie Pie Challenge for "Spring Cuties" and @ Addicted to Stamps for their photo color challenge.

I used baby boy themed linen patterned paper from Itsy Bitsy, a circle punch, a corner rounder and the Lamb With Baby Digital Stamp from the CDD store.

The inside sentiments are from an older set from Stampin' Up!

I colored the lamb image using Spectrum Noir markers and cut it out using my Scan 'N Cut machine.

Wishing you all a blessed Easter holiday weekend...until next time~
