Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge

Hey all,
  Im back again to share a quick card I made for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge. The Challenge was to use patterns..well Ive been dying to use this paper from Basic Grey Konnichiwa and thought this was the perfect time. I used the Paper Smooches "My Peeps" and "Hang Ups" sets to create this little scene. I also used my PTI cloud dies. It is a very CAS card and I think it came out pretty cute. The challenge only runs til tonight but there will be a new challenge posted soon so go check em out HERE Thanks for stoppin by!

Gorjuss Time

Hey guys,
  Im a little late getting this post up today..I ended up falling asleep on the couch last night and forgot all about posting it lol.
   So..I needed a card for my hubby's Grandma for her 82nd Birthday this month..I thought this Gorjuss The White Rabbit stamp fit nicely with her cute little pocket watch. The numbers and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink. I also used my cuttlebug watch gears embossing folder for the background and some stormy sky distress ink to help it stand out a bit more.
  Well, that's all Ive got for ya today..Im hoping to get some crafting done today so I may have more to share a bit later=) See ya!

The Last Rose

Good Morning Guys! I've been on a real card-making kick since making all those fun cards for SN this last week. I got some of the new Gorjuss stamps yesterday and couldn't wait to start creating with them, so I inked up this one called "The Last Rose" first. I colored it very similar to the picture on the package cuz I love it so much, I masked her off and used my Pumice Stone/Stormy Sky distress inks for the background. I used some older MME papers from my stash but I cant remember the name of the collection sorry =(. I also used the CC Designs Fairwee Tiny Scallop and  MFT Rolled Flower Dies and a little stickles here and there. Thats all Ive got for ya today..another Gorjuss card coming tomorrow =) Catch ya later!

Sweet November Stamps- Preview Day 5

Hey Guys,
  Today is my last day as a Guest Gal for Sweet November's definitely a bitter sweet feeling. I am so honored to have been a part of SN for the last few days..and wanna say a HUGE Thank You to Amy for having me!
  On a happier is the day I get to show you some of the images Amy created with some suggestions from me..awhile back I had not- so - subtly mentioned in a video that she should make some 4th of July images..since there doesn't seem to be very many out on the market.When I said it I had no idea she would actually do needless to say when I seen them I was pretty stoked! I plan to use these girls in a 4th of July printers tray for my home but I haven't gotten around to that just yet. I did make some cards for your viewing pleasure though =)
Meet Patriotic Pixies, Patti and Betsy.  For the first card I used the October Afternoon Rocket Age papers and my Martha Stewart loopy punch..a little bit of twine and lots of glitter for the sparklers. The sentiment was created using the Lawn Fawn Sally's ABCs.
  The Second One is much more simple..I used my Papertrey Ink block Alphabet Dies to cut out the "HELLO" and back it with more of that OA star paper. I tried to make it look like she was whizzing by on her super fast firework by adding some blue  coloring/sparkle behind her..I think it worked pretty well. Ok guys Don't forget to go check out what Nancy, Marion and Amy created with these girls and go get your hands on these images at All That Scraps! Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet November Stamps-Preview Day 4

Good Morning all..Today Ive got the last (but certainly not least) Tadpole from Sweet November Stamps to share with you..This is Tadpole Sunny..Im totally loving her shades! For this card I decided to pair her with her friend Tadpole Phoebe that I showed you on Preview Day 1.  This design is a bit different than my usual..but Im really loving how it turned out!  I used my Spellbinders Wonky Squares die and die cut several papers from the Echo park Splash line and some plain white sheets for spacing and just fanned them out and placed my image on top. The sentiment is from Amy R's Beach Sentiments and I used a few mini seashells and my Viva Decor pearl pen in Cream for embellishment. I don't know about you..but this card definitely has me itching for a day at the beach! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget..Nancy, Marion and Amy have more of Sunny to share with you! I hope to see you back here tomorrow for another sneak of some Sweet November girlies!

Sweet November- Preview Day 2

Hello all Im back again today with yet another adorable Tadpole from Sweet November Stamps. Meet Tadpole Polly. This little cutie was just begging to be put on a surf board...since I don't have any surf board stamps I decided to draw my own..Im not totally happy with it but its ok I guess. I used the Basic Grey What's Up 6x6 pad again (Im totally addicted to these colors right now!) and I created the waves with a scallop punch and layered it up a few times,curled the edges a bit and viola =) I let the paper do a lot of the work for me here with the sky/hot air balloons. The sentiment is from Amy R's Beach Sentiments once again..they just seem made for these cute little Tadpoles ;) Ok..that's all Ive got for ya today..stop by Nancy,Marion and Amy's blogs for more sneaks of Polly and a chance to win her on Amy's blog! TTYL
