Young Love

Good friday morning to you. How has your week went? Mine was hectic.

Anyways I am here to share with you a anniversary card I made my parents. I used the ever so cute young love file. I just love the file.

You can check it out here with all of its deets. 

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow the 28th is our hop for February Stamp Release. The stamps are so so so cute. There will be a free SVG for hopping along with us.

Until then....


Boys and their Toys

Friday is here again, and its Tammy  here posting today with my inspiration piece. Today I am using the image from the Scrapping with Lisa designs called Jimmy.  I thought he was a fun masculine image to play with.  
Rather than coloring with my copics like I normally do, I decided to go with some watercoloring today, just because I've not done it in awhile.  So as you can see, like a watercolor painting, some of the areas are darker and some have varying degrees of lighter color.  It was fun to get back into it. I went with lots of layers and just a few embellishments with this one today.  I hope you like it and don't forget to stop by the store and shop around!  Remember, tomorrow is our blog hop so pop by and see what fun we have for you then!

Today I am using a stamp called Becky, but I call her Patty.  My husband is a Peanuts fan, and wanted to know why I was making a card with Peppermint Patty.   

This stamps can be found in the girls section of the web site here.  After I colored the stamp, I scanned in the image and made it smaller to better fit the card I was making.  I also used a Nestie from the Silhouette Store to make the cut around her and the shadow as well.   I found paper in my scrap bin that looked springy to me and got lucky to have found this fun double sided paper.   I finished off the card by adding a couple of spring flowers and a cute little chick.   I think it is a cute spring card, don't you?

2 cards 1 post.

Good morning Everyone! Sher here today with my post for the week.  It's a brisk cold morning here in Kalamazoo Michigan and I plan on staying in my jammies all day long.  Seriously, it is take your breath away cold!  

Today's project is clean and simple.  I love a CAS card, and the cute stamps from Sunsational Stamps are great to use for them.   My image is from the Artic Critters stamp set that will be available soon at the store.  Be sure to stop by this weekend for the hop with the new release of critter stamp sets.

Shop here:

Oh my goodness,before I go, I just had to share my card that I forgot to post last week with you.  I love this little kitty from the City Critters set.

Thanks for taking a peak at my cards.  I would love to see your projects.  Feel free to share

Dragon Birthday Card

Today I used the adorable Dragon Stamp to make a birthday card for my stash. You can find the Dragon Stamp HERE.

You can find the Sunsation Stamp shop and all the awesome stamps HERE!!!

Now for my Project today.....

I use a 7.25 x 4.5" white card base, sorry I forgot to take a picture of it.

 I layered some lime green card stock with some purple DCWV pattern paper from my scrap bin, I'm not sure which stack it comes from.

I adhered my front layers to the card base with ATG Adhesive.

I used some Paper Trey Ink Stamps and Memento Grape Jelly Ink for the inside of my card 

I layered it with some lime green card stock too and added it to the inside of my card.

I colored my dragon with Spectrum Noir Markers and used tombow foam squares to adhere it to the front of my card stock. 

I used another paper trey ink die and stamp set to make the sentiment with Memento Grape Jelly Ink.

And I adhered the sentiment on my card with ATG. 

Thanks for stopping bye please come back tomorrow to see what the other amazing Design team makes ~ Carla

The above card is 4.25x5.50 in size.  Card stock from my stash.  The scalloped ovals cut file from the SilhouetteAmerica Online Store; small silver brads from Stampin! Up.  I used my Silhouette Cameo for printing; and for cutting.

Get Well Soon

Another Friday is here and Tammy here with another card design for you.  I am using the Hopping you Get Better Soon Frog. He is just adorable!

I used some Origami paper that a friend sent to me from Japan. I loved the flowers!  I colored him with my copics and then went over the lily pad with some glossy accents (to make it look wet  :)  ).  I added a bit of ribbon and some sequins for a bit of dimension.  I used my Sizzix to cut him out.

I hope that you enjoy  him and don't forget to stop by the store and check out all the great images that we have for you!

Ella the Elephant.

Good morning friends, as you know it is Friday and that means, It is my day to share with you a project I did using sunsational stamps items.

For this project I chose to use Ella the Elephant. I sent her to my auntie whom loves elephants.

Why don't you come to my crafting place and check out all of the deets on Ella.

Here is a sneak peak.

Can't wait to see what stamps you decide to use to make something spectacular.

Sweet kitten

 For the kitty I only colored her slightly in my sil program. 

 For this one, I just added some fun butterfly pattern to her.
 For their collars I used a heart gem I had for one and for the other 2 I used crystal effects and some tiny beads.
