A quirky little PB and J

I saw the PB and J digital stamp set over at Craftin Desert Divas and instantly thought of a pregnancy announcement.  I know, a little quirky, but I was not able to get it out of my mind, so I ran with it.


I printed out the image on Neenah Solar white and colored them with copic markers.  I cut them out with my detail scissors.  I used the Stitched Number and Stitched Alphabet dies on some purple card stock and I used the Crazy Stitched Frame die to cut out the white card stock.  I adhered the larger images flat to the card and popped up the small image and the number 3 with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by and most all the supplies are listed below.



Mouse House Digital Stamp Set

The February release over at Craftin Desert Divas is now live.  One of my favorite sets is the Mouse House Digital Stamp Set.  Digital stamps are so versatile and the best part is...you don't have to wait for them to ship to you.  One you purchase, they are usually an instant download.  Better yet, they also come in the .png format, which means the background of each image is transparent, to you can layer them together without using masking techniques!

For the card below, I duplicated the clothes line and lined them up to kind of create a continuous line.  I added the washer, then brought in the bottle of detergent and sat it on top of the washer, added the cute little mouse, then just simply colored with my copic markers.  I did draw in the floor and baseboard with a pencil, then colored the floor, baseboard, and wall with copics.



A Happy Hello Friday!

A Happy Hello on this Friday morning!  It is the end of the work week and almost time for the new release from Craftin Desert Divas!  Though the digi image on this card is from a previous release, the whimsical Stitched Alpha Dies at the bottom will be available for purchase this afternoon.


I printed the digital image on Neenah Solar White and colored with my copic markers.  Don't forget that balloons are transparent as are the copic markers, so be sure to overlap the colors.  I used the Stitched Scallop Dies to cut out a template for creating the light clouds in the background by sponging on Broken China Distress Ink very lightly.  I cut out the image and popped up on foam tape.  I used the new Stitched Alpha Dies with my big shot to cut out the letters to spell the word Hello and colored them with the same markers I used for the balloons.  I adhered the letters flat to the card and here you have it....A fun CAS card just to say Hello!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!


Garden Background Die Two Ways

Hi everyone, I'm here again with a card share using the Garden Background die.  I'll also be using the Nesting Stitched Scalloped Oval Dies, Word Set - Happy, and Word Set - Birthday
.


I'll be using both the negative and positive of the Garden Background to show you how to create two cards.



Card #1

Card #2

Below is a video of how I made both cards.  Enjoy!



Thanks so much for stopping by and as always, all of the supplies I've used are listed below.

Sending Sunshine with A Happy Hello

Today I thought I would create something a little more spring like since I'm so over this cold winter weather.  I used the CDD Sending Sunshine digital stamp, along with A Happy Hello digital stamp, combining the sentiment from one with the image from the other.  I just love these bright colors and the card turned out so cheery.


I colored the bird and flower with Copic Markers as follows:
Bird - B00, B01, B02, Y11, Y23, R20
Flower - Y21, Y23, YR14, YR15, E09, E35, E37, YG01, YG03

I found some matching blue patterned paper in my stash and cut to 3.75" x 5.25", then grabbed some scrap pieces of bright green cards stock to tie in with the green leaves of the image.  I used the Fancy Frames dies to cut out the Bird and Sentiment, then trimmed off two edges of the scallops, reversing them for each.  I used foam tape to pop up the Bird and Sentiment, then added a few Pastel Paradise Sequins to finish it off.


My Squeak Heart

Is this not just the cutest image ever?  Who wouldn't love to get a box of candy hearts from this sweet little mouse?  You can pick him up over at CDD right here.


I printed the image on Neenah Solar White card stock, then used Copic Markers to do the coloring.  I cut the images apart then trimmed them up.  I adhered the mouse with candy flat to the card front, then popped up the sentiment on foam tape.  The background paper is some specialty paper that I previously got in a Simon Says Stamp card kit.  The black mat is from Lawn Fawn's Polka in the Meadow 6x6 paper pack.



Tutti Designs Swirly Love

Hi everyone, I'm here again with a new card and video for you using the Tutti Designs Swirly Love die.  This is such a lovely die and Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

One Image, Two Cards

Today I'm sharing two cards that I made using the Craftin Desert Divas, "You Melt My Heart Snowman" digital image.  For the card on the left, I also used the CDD "Fancy Frame" dies and I used Bubblegum and Shimmer sequins to embellish both cards.



I used Lawn Fawn "Let's Polka in the Meadow" 6 x 6 paper pack to mat both cards.  The image was printed twice onto Neenah Solar White card stock.  I drew in the puddle of water for the card on the left, but left the right one as is.  I colored both with comic markers, then cut them out.  The background for the card on the right was done by sponging on distress ink and I darkened up the bottom by using a few cool gray Copic markers.  I added a little white gel pen detail to both, then popped them up on foam tape.



Hi everyone, Sherry back again today with a simple 4.25 x 4.25 square card using the Flower Wish die and the Dotted Nesting Squares from Tutti Designs.


A few pieces of paper, a couple of die cuts, a scattering of sequins and a little sparkle on the Flower Wish.

Baby It's Cold Outside.....

How about this cute little penguin from Craftin Desert Divas?  He is such a cutie and this is my first post for the January Mood Board over in the gallery.  Come join in on the fun and be sure to use #cddmonthly on your social media.



I printed out the digital image of the penguin, then I sketched in the ice with a copic multi liner.  I did some simple coloring with copic markers, then cut out the entire image.  I then took a piece of 4 x 5.25 bristol smooth and used Distress Inks in Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch.  Sprinkled on some water with the distress sprayer and wiped up with a paper towel.  I then used my Versamark pen and sketched around the ice and dotted around the background.  I poured on some Wow White Puff embossing powder and heat set to create the snow.  I printed out the sentiment from the computer and cut it into a banner shape.



30 Day Coloring Challenge

Once again, I've started the 30 Day Coloring Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin.  Not sure I can keep up, but sure going to give it another try.  I'll share Day 1 and Day 2 with you now.


For both cards, I used the PS, I Love You stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas.  Day 1 is colored with colored pencils as I traveled on Monday.  Day 2 is very simple coloring with copic markers.
