Sketch Saturday

I am in a group on Splitcoast Stampers and each month there is a challenge.  This month's challenge was ice cream and toppings. 
These adorable images are from Amuse studio called "We All Scream".  For the challenge on topping, I used Stickles on the first image, a little Wink a Stella on the ice cream with a sequin for a cherry on top, and the last cone I used some clear glaze for the topping.

What a fun challenge this was.  I decided to use the sketch from Sketch Saturday this week because it fit right in to the theme.  Be sure and check out some of their other entries.

Two Paper Divas

Well it is almost the end of the month and time for another card using my Two Paper Diva Stamp sets from May.

Continuing on with the sewing theme from last week, I decided to make another fun sewing card.  For this card I used the following stamps for this card:
Jar Topper stamp for the top of the jar,
Sew Much Fun Stamp for the sentiment, scissors and needles
Back to School Set for the ribbon (I stamped the ruler on ribbon)

Hope you enjoyed this card.  Now I am off to work on June cards.  Be sure and check back because I am thinking Halloween.

Two Paper Divas

Today's card for Two Paper Divas is one of my favorites with the new releases this month. 
I used a paper background from the Home Sweet Home collection from Graphic 45.  I colored the image with my copics and then fussy cut it out.  The pincushion, thimble, needle and sentiment are all from the "Sew Much Fun" stamp set. I can't believe how many different stamps are on this set.  What a bargain. 

Have you noticed that when you go to a particular stamp set on Two Paper Divas that they have lots of ideas for that stamp set.  I love that idea because sometimes I need just a little extra inspiration when making a card.

Two Paper Divas

I can't believe that May is almost half over.  I am enjoying the wonderful spring that we are having.  Time again for another card for Two Paper Divas.  I hope you are follower of their blog because they have some fantastic ideas there.

Going with the "Loving Spring" theme, I decided to use the new Garden Joy stamp from Two Paper Divas.  I colored the image with my copic markers and then put it on to a card base.  I love my little butterfly wooden embellishment. 

I decided to enter this card in "Crafting By Designs" challenge since the challenge is all about flowers.  Be sure and check out some of their other entries.  I truly love all flowers so this is such a fun challenge.

Art Impressions

Today's card is going to make you smile.  The stamp I used is from Art Impressions called Bertha Big Mouth.  I decided to make this card for the Art Impressions challenge #159 called Lovely Ladies.  When you purchase this stamp, you get wonderful instructions on how to put it all together.  I don't follow directions well and did it my own way.  I first colored with image with my copic markers.  I then put the pull tab together and it is done.


I just love this card .  Come on - it makes you smile just a bit.
Be sure and check out some of the others creations on the Art Impressions blog.  I just love their stamps.

Two Paper Divas

I hope you have been watching the new release this month at Two Paper Divas.  You will see another great bunch on stamps this month. For my card today I used the stamp "Sweet Blossom" and fussy cut it.  I then stamped the ruled paper out of the Paper Elements #1 Stamp Set.  I think it made a great background.



I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Be sure and check back because this month is tons of fun and I am playing with alot of their new stamps.

Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday

I recently purchased some fun items from Simon Says Stamps.  I have always wanted one of the Fiskars compact stamping press stamp and I must say I love it.  It worked perfectly in stamping this large image. The image is from Stampin Up called Corner Garden.  I stamped the image with my Versa Mark and then heat embossed with my new Ranger Ink Super Fine Embossing Powder.  Boy do you get a nice crisp line with this powder.  And on to my favorite from this purchase.  It was the Peerless Watercolor Papers.  I have always wanted to try watercolor and this has intrigued me for a while.  I just love how this goes on the paper.  I did use watercolor paper to make this card.



So I decided to enter this card in the Work it Wednesday on the Simon Says Blog.   The theme this month is yellow and I think I have it covered with this card. 

Everything goes great with wine

I needed to make a birthday card for a friend and I found this wonderful challenge over at Dragonfly Journeys that fit my card perfectly.

This is a AI image called Celeste Set.  I thought it was so cute.  I fussy cut the image and the couch out after coloring the image of Celeste with my copic markers.

I hope you enjoy this card and it makes you smile.

Two Paper Divas

I just love Fridays for several reasons.  #1 is because I don't have to go to work which is always nice and #2 is that I get to post a fun project that I made using some of my Two Paper Divas stamps. 

I just love this card that I made for a good friend of mine's birthday.  I used the stamp set called "You Make Life Sweet".  This describes my friend to a tee.  I just love the way this card turned out.

Hope you enjoy it.  Makes me want to go out and eat ice cream.
