New Favorites!!!

I was doing a little blog hopping yesterday and came across some new digi images I just LOVE!!!
The are called The Besties! You can find them at several places here .
 They have these huge eyes and I just love them!
I bought two of them and then realized I had one already that I hadnt used.

So I decided to color one up this morning. I am entering it in The Besties Challenge . Their challenge this week is bow crazy.  I love the big bow in her hair and I also added a bow to the card. To make this card I used the sketch from the sketchy challenge .
I really like how this turned out. She was so much fun to color. I have quite a few birthdays I need cards for in august but I will have to make another one of these to keep for myself before giving it away!
Happy Stamping!

Hello Baby!

My hubby's boss just had their 1st grandbaby so I decided to make a card for them.
I went over to my sis's house to stamp and borrowed her Taylored Expressions onesie day.
I found this adorable little train paper (I just realized this one is upside down). I had just purchased the flowered paper also. The two polka dot papers are really old papertrey ink papers I bought way back when they first started selling ds papers.
I also used my brand new spellbinders die called Stately Circles.
I think they turned out pretty cute. For the greeting I used my Teeny Tiny Wishes set from SU.
Also when I was visting my sis we went to the new stamp/art store in Salem, Craft Warehouse and also Tuesday Morning.
The Tuesday Morning in Salem has LOTS of spellbinder dies for a really good price. It would be perfect for someone just starting out. Unfortunately, I had most of the ones they had.
But we had a really good day!

Stamp and Create Magnolia Blog Challenge Friday!

This month for Team B at Stamp and Create Magnolia Blog Challenge is Christmas in July!
I have used my Tilda w/Snowflake Magnolia stamp. I went with snowflake papers. I paired it with the new SU color Smoky Slate cardstock. I also used the tree die from Magnolia. I love this die. I added glitter on the trees to make them sparkly. I also used a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch.
Since the card was all grey and white I went with hot pink for the accent colors on Tildas snow outfit.
For other great card ideas you can hop on over and see what the other members of team B have come up with.
Also for some great shopping visit the stamp and create store and check out all the fun treasures you can find there. Lots of magnolias, dies, other great stamps, charms and lots of other fun stuff!!
Happy Stamping and Happy Friday!

Collage Style!

I needed to make some birthday cards for august. I have a friend that is really into the collagey type of thing so I made this for her. Not my normal type of card at all but I have been seeing some different things out there so I thought I would give it a try.
I just used a quarter sheet of scrapbooking paper. It has 4 large designs on it that were each 6 x 6 so I cut this one out in two places and then put it back together and layered it. Added some glitter and a bow. For the sentiment I did just stamp it right on the paper but then realized I stamped it upside down. So I restamped it on matching card stock. Inked the edges to match and layered it on top.
I hope she likes it!
Happy Stamping!

Another WhipperSnapper!

This is the third little mouse I got when I was in CoosBay a few months ago at Memories of Time.
He is called Spring Mouse and he is another WhipperSnapper Rubber Stamp. Much easier to stamp then the watermelon one.
I used a sketch from friday sketch challenge . Except the image was supposed to be a circle and mine is a rectangle. I probably could have fit it into a circle but I guess I didnt think about it.
I colored the image with copics. I found some papers that I thought made me think of mushrooms.
The ds papers matched perfect with SU Pool Party CS. I could have used a lot of su colors with these papers.
I added some ribbon and rhinestones. Also I used the bitty banners su set and matching dies.
Happy Stamping!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge!

I made this card using the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday . I used this cute little tilda. I think It might be Swedish Tilda but not really sure. I was trying to decide what papers to use and my eyes landed on these new SU ribbons. Then I remember I had just looked at these ds papers with the exact same colors. I colored her with copic markers and then layered her. Added some flowers.
Happy Stamping!

Whipper Snapper Sumertime!

This card was made with a WhipperSnapper Stamp called Summertime Friends. I saw this card at
memories of time . They were having a class but I didnt want to go back down there and take it so I did it on my own.
I was really intimidated by doing the watermelon because reds are hard. So I colored it last. But I really had fun doing it. I stamped the image and then colored it with copic. The flowers are handmade.
It was a really fun card to make. Although I will have to admit the stamp was hard to stamp. It is a big block to hold the picture and so it rocks. But also the watermelon center kept getting inked. Finally I had to stamp on a pad to get a good image. So I may have to invest in the new stamping pad that SU carries and see how it works. But the SU catty worked good as a pad also.
Happy Stamping!

December LOTV Calender!

I know Christmas in July is a big deal but I have a really hard time with it. But it was the last calender I had to do so I am excited about that. They are all done.
I think this LOTV image is really cute. My denami Merry Christmas went really well down the side of it.
I colored the image with copic markers and then glittered her fur accessories. Her gift bag is colored with gel glitter pens. I added a sleigh charm to the image also.
Happy Stamping!

Cased TE Card!

I love this card. I was going to order everything to make it and realized it was a Monthly set from Taylored Expressions and couldnt order it. Then I remembered my big sis belonged to the monthly kit club and she had it. So she supplied the stamps and dies and I supplied the papers and we made them together.
You can find the original card here . It was made by Shannon White from Enchanted LadyBug Creations.
She does some really fun stuff!
Happy Stamping!
