Hello!!

It's time for another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More!! The challenge this week is CAS (clean and simple)! I have an easy valentine card to share with you!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Simon Says Stamp
I started by die cutting and stamping the cute little monster from the Simon Says Stamp Monster Hugs. I colored him up with copic markers.

Next i went through my pattern paper scraps, found one i liked and cut a wave along one edge. I added the pattern paper to a white card base with foam dots, trimming off any over hang. I added the little monster to my 'ground.'

I stamped the UB Mine? sentiment with black ink above the ground. Last i stamped a few hearts above the monster, then colored them with red copic markers.

Hello!!

Today i'm sharing a The Alley Way Stamps card today! I need some birthday cards and i wanted to make one that was more for a older teen or young adult.

I started with a bright pink and kraft pattern paper and adding it to a kraft card base. From the same pad i picked out a black and kraft flower pattern. I stamped a cupcake top on the pattern paper and cut it out. With a white opaque pen i colored in parts of the flowers. I stamped a cupcake bottom on kraft card stock and cut it out.

Next i stamped a candle and strawberry on kraft card stock, then cut them out. I added a little yellow glitter glue to the candle. I colored the strawberry with a sparkly red pen. I added the cupcake, candle and strawberry to my card base.

Love You (again!)

Hello!!

Yep! I have another card for you!! All these wonderful challenges have really gotten my mojo going!! I made today's card for Winnie & Walter's 1st Birthday Challenge, the Color Combo Challenge this is my 4th and last card for the W&W challenges! I've had fun playing along, i just wish i had more time to play with the remaining challenges! The color combo is white, silver/grey, mint/aqua, and blue.



This card was inspired by Taheerah Atchia's Hello My Friend card (third card). I loved how she used a sequin stamp and stencil to create the Hello. For my card i stamped and embossed the LOVE from The Big, the Bold and the Happy W&W stamp set. I embossed it with a silvery/pearl embossing powder.

Then i used Copic marker G40 to stipple around the sentiment. I left the space inside the L, O and E white, along with not stippling below the sentiment. G40 is a nice light mint color, i swear, it really looks awesome in person, but no matter the background or lighting i could not get my photos to look any better!

I stamped the you just above the swoosh from the E. Then i added a strip of grey and blue card stock below the sentiment. I though about adding sequins or enamel dots, but i finally figured the stippling was enough!

I hope you have a great week! Thanks for stopping by!

Love You

Hello!

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is having a great day!! Today i am sharing a card i made for the Sparkle and Shine Challenge Design Team Call. I've had the idea for this card kickin' around my head for awhile and i figure now was a good time to make it happen! I work retail and kids cloths that i am around a lot have had these shirts with different icons, hearts, stars, peace sign etc. Each one was covered in sequins and i thought it turn into a great card!

I am also entering this into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, the challenge being hearts!!
I started by die cutting a big heart. I added liquid glue a little bit at a time and added the sequins, kind of overlapping them a little. The heart used a lot of sequins, so its a great way to use up some if you like or as i was doing it, though smaller images with smaller sequins would work great too!!

Once i had everything adhered i set it aside to dry real good! Later i came back and manipulated the sequins to make sure they were all attached good! The glue made the heart warp a little, so i die cut another heart and added it to the back of the sequin heart with double sided tape.

Next i stamped the cute elephant image from Penny Black and colored him and his heart balloon with copics, then i cut him out (isn't he so cute?!?!). I cut a circle from black card stock and then embossed in white the sentiment love you.
Last it was just a matter of adhering the heart, the circle and the elephant to a white card base. Oh i also rounded the corners of the card base.

Make It Stop!

Hello!!

I'm popping in to share a card i made a couple moths ago, its been kickin' around my desk for awhile just waiting for its time on the blog. This Newton's Nook set Winter Tails is so cute!! I love winter and the snow so its the perfect set for me! I really needed this set last winter, it was just under the record for snowfall!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Newton's Nook

Anyway, i started by stamping the bunny holding the snow shovel and the sign. I used versamark and embossed the images with clear embossing powder. I also stamped the Make it Stop! sentiment in the sign and embossed it.

Next used Copic markers to color the bunny and sign. I colored the shovel with pink and red distress markers as i didn;t have red copic markers yet. I also stamped some of the snow banks around the bunny and sign, then cut around everything. I added a little shadow with a grey copic marker, then added some glitter glue.

On a white card base i stamped and embossed in clear, several snowflakes. Then with an ink applicator and light blue distress ink i colored the card base. I added the cut out panel with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! You still have time to enter my giveaway here!

Hello

Hiya!!

Today i'm sharing a card i made for Neat & Tangled Little Tangled Challenge Blog. The challenge is Saying Hello!
Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Neat & Tangled
I started with a white card base and then pulled out Neat & Tangled's Party Dots stamp set. There is a strip of dots in the stamp set and i inked that strip up with navy pigment ink. I stamped it on my card base with the close dots at the top. I continued the dots across the card.

Next i used one of the small dots in the set and with bright pink ink added pink dots randomly around my card. I found some navy ribbon to add to the top of my card. I wrapped some around my card base and adhered it to the card. With another piece of ribbon i made a bow which i adhered to the card.
