Happy Birthday!

I found this adorable little girl with all the gifts on the table in my stamp room. I think it is a Digi Stamp Boutique image, but I am not certain.
I colored the image with copics and then cut it out. I layered the image onto some Simple Stories Summer Fresh patterned paper--I love the bright chevrons. I added some buttons and some red jewels from my stash and finished it off with a Happy Birthday sentiment cut out with a SU punch.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend and try to stay cool!

What's The Matter

This adorable little scientist is from There She Goes Cutie Pi set. My youngest daughter is very into science, and this set reminds me of her. I colored the image with copics and then added some sparkle to her googles and test tube with a spica glitter pen. I used some of my new My Mind's Eye Nostalgia patterned paper pad and then added the sentiment. The ribbons and buttons are from my stash. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Bee Happy

This beautiful little bee is from There She Goes Clear Stamps. The challenge this week is wings. Easy peasy lemon squeezy right? I colored the bee with copics and then added some spica glitter to his wings. The flower shaped card base was cut with my Nestabilities Blossom Tags and Accents. See the dots--the holes are in the die, simply hold it in place after cutting the shape. I used a Sizzix embossing folder on the gray card stock and then used some My Minds Eye Nostalgia paper. I am loving the gray and yellow together with all the layers.

S'Up Grill-Friend

This has got to be one of my favorite stamp sets this year! They are from the Alfresco set from Paper Smooches.  You'll be seeing more of this set soon. I had never heard of Paper Smooches until I saw some of the Alfresco stamps on a blog. Instantly I knew they had to be mine. I have made two different cards with the S'Up Grill-Friend sentiment. The first one using patterned paper from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh pad. I inked the edges and then added the flag of patterned paper and the sentiment. I finished it with the gorgeous hamburger.

The second card was made with the same stamps, but instead of the picnicky red and white checks I used black, white and red. I added some spica glitter to the smoke and grill. The ribbon and black brad are from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by!

Just Married

One of my youngest daughter's favorite teachers is getting married over the summer. So I was tasked with making a wedding card for her. The stamp is from a wedding set from Digi Stamp Boutique. I printed it out and colored it with copics. I used a Sizzix embossing folder and some twine and ribbon from my stash to keep it clean and simple.

Little Girls

As soon as I saw this Stamping Bella Anastasia stamp I immediately thought of my girls. Not sure if it is the curls plopped on top of her little head or the glasses or maybe both. I colored her with copies and gave her a nice bunch of red curls. I added grey and green to her dress. I cut the patterned paper strips with a MFT Fish Tail Flags Die-namic.  The flower was cut with a die and finished with a black rhinestone center.
