I wanted to use up this sheet of stickers that have been hanging out on my desk for like forever!!! So i started adding the label stickers to a white card base.

Next i stamped the little chicks from The Alley Way Stamps Hard Boiled stamp set in a brown ink. Then i stamped the Hello from the same set.

I thought it still needed something, so i went through my embellishments and found some brads. BUT i didn't want to have to punch holes and have the brad backs on the inside of the card. So instead i cut them off with a wire cutter thingy (a very technical name!!). I add a tiny dot of foam tape and a little bit of liquid glue to adhere it to the brad, then a little more glue to add the brad to the card and wa-la a brad without the whole punch!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

I made a spring theme card using some new goodies i purchase a bit ago. I started by using a Avery Elle die to cut rectangle. Then i stamped the girl, flowers and puddling, doing a little masking here and there. I colored her up with Copic Markers.

Next i stamped the sentiment, first masking the spring and stamping the happy. Then masking the happy to stamp the spring. I used a pigment ink for the puddle and rather then just having plain old solid flowers i used a colorless blender to light up the flower petals.

Then i added a few enamel dots in a couple shades of mint and a clear glitter. Last i adhered the panel to a light mint colored card base.

I made a simple background with the dream catcher image by stamping it multiple times with a brown ink. Then with a red copic marker i colored the beads in each dream catcher. And that's the background!! Super duper simple!!

Next i found some red card stock and trimmed it down. I stamped the Never Stop Dreaming sentiment, also from the Wigwam set. Then i added the strip to my card base with foam dots.

Eggstra Special

Hello!!

I'm popping in with a card today featuring one of The Alley Way Stamps new March stamps, Hard Boiled! Such an adorable set, for my card i went a little vintage with the help of pattern paper.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps
I started by using a dotted rectangle die to cut some pattern paper, then i inked the edges with distress ink. I adhered it to a peice of card stock that matches my pattern paper. Next i cut a strip of kraft card stock and adhered it across my card. From another peice of kraft i cut a heart and lines die, then inked it up to make it a little bit darker then the kraft, then added it to the kraft strip.

Next i stamped a few of the chickens and chicks from the Hard Boiled set in brown ink, then colored them up with Copic markers. Next i i cut them out and inked there edges with a distress marker.

I have a few matching buttons and brads that are apart of the same collection as the pattern paper. I added one of each to my card, then added the chicks with foam dots. Last i stamped the 'You're Eggstra Special sentiment in brown ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Happy Birthday

Hello!!

A little quite round here i know, its going to be for the next couple weeks! I have a research paper to get done and well i'm a procrastinator when it comes to writing! But today i'm popping in quick to share a masculine birthday card!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps
I started by pulling out a Basic Grey collection pack called Carte Postale. I found a cool journaling card and a few stickers that i liked. Then i stamped the skull from The Alley Way Stamps Wigwam set on some pattern paper in the collection. I cut out the horns from a brown pattern and added them to my skull. With a brown marker i colored in the eyes and nose of the skull.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps

Then i played with the arrangement of the skull and stickers, when i was happy i adhered some to the journal card and some with foam dots. Then I added the journaling card with foam dots to a kraft card base.

With brown ink i stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the TAWS Yappy set. I thought it still needed something so i stamped a row of tiny arrows along the left side.

What's Up?

Hiya!!

I hope everyone has been having a good week! The snow is slowly melting here and the warmer weather feels great i'm starting to sort through my winter cloths to make room for lighter clothes! But anyway, today i'm sharing a card i made for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, this is for the color inspiration:

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps
I started by finding ink colors that are similar to the blue and green in the photo. I went with Hero Arts Green Hills and Soft Pool. I pressed the ink pads into some white card stock, then i did the same thing with two different shades of brown ink. Next i used The Alley Way Stamps Hey Cupcake stamp set and stamped the two cupcake wrappers on the brown ink spots and the two cupcake tops on the green and blue spots. Then i cut them out and adhered the bottoms to the cupcake tops.

Then i stamped the three small circles from he Hey Cupcake set in white ink on the green cupcake. After the pigment ink was dry i colored in the circles with a white opaque pen.

Next i found some green and white polka dot pattern paper that matched my green cupcake and i adhered it to a white card base. I wanted to use the dotted notched dies, so to make sure they matched i colored up some white card base with the ink again, then used the dies.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps

I arranged the dies cuts together and used staples to adhere them together. At this point i needed a sentiment i thought that the Sweet Cakes in the Hey Cupcakes set would go great with the What's Up? Sentiment in the new Yappy set. I inked them up and stamped them in black ink on dotted die cuts.

Last i added the cupcakes and found some white enamel dots to add to my card.
