Game On

4.29.2016


Hello everyone! Today it's my turn to post over at the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog. Today I have a fun little mini card and matching gift bag to share. My card & gift bag features a bunch of different stamps from the Game On stamp set picture below. You can find the stamp set I'm using today in the shop HERE.


I used the fun little PlayStation controller and the "Game On" sentiment from the set for the front of my mini card.


I stamped the controller in black onto some teal cardstock and added my sentiment right below it in the same black ink. I distressed the edges of my teal cardstock before matting it with some textured black cardstock. After I had my stamped panel matted I adhered it to a 3 x 3 white card base.


For the inside of my card I stamped the "I love you more than you love video games" sentiment in black and added a few of the little mini stars that are included in the Game On set. 


I thought it would be fun to create a little matching git bag so I stamped one to match. I started with a plain white mini gift bag from Canvas Corp and randomly stamped the front of it with some controllers and stars. After I had the front of my gift bag all stamped I added the fun little sentiment that reads "To my control freak" to the upper left side of my bag. I attached my sentiment with a staple and then added a mini black clothepin and some twine. I hope you enjoyed my project today. Thanks for visiting!

Pretty Cute Stamps Challenge: Just For Her

4.15.2016


Hello everyone! It's time for another fun challenge over at the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog. This months challenge theme is "Just For Her". This challenge will run for three weeks and one random winner will be chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Pretty Cute Stamps Shop. You can link up your creation and find all the challenge details HERE.


I created this card using the two different stamp sets pictured below. The large wine glass image and googly face are from the Happy Hour Faces stamp set. This stamp set has a bunch of different larger images that can be mixed and matched with the smaller little silly faces. The "You + Me + Wine = Girl's Night " sentiment I stamped below the wine glass is from the coordinating stamp set called Happy Hour Sentiments


I started my card by stamping the wine glass, googly face, and sentiment onto a rectangle piece of white cardstock. After I had all my images stamped I masked off the wine glass and the edges of my cardstock and misted the entire panel with some vintage pink mist. After the mist had time to completely dry I removed the masks, colored the wine glass, added some fun googly eyes to the silly face, and added some stitching around the outside edges. I adhered my stamped panel to some scalloped bordered patterned paper and added the whole thing to my folded card front. 


I hope you enjoyed my card today! Don't forget to check out the amazing projects the rest of the Design Team has created over at the blog HERE. Thanks for visiting!

Wildflowers

4.08.2016


Hello everyone! Today it's my turn to post over at the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog. Today I'm sharing a fun little card featuring stamps from the Spring Flowers stamp set pictured below. I created a fun little garden scene with the grass, one of the flowers, a flower stem, the flower pot, and the little butterfly. I started by stamping the flower pot onto a white piece of cardstock and continued to stamp the rest of my images masking certain ones along the way to create my scene. After all my images were stamped I colored them and masked them off to mist the background blue. I added my stamped panel behind a die cut window I die cut into some patterned paper and stamped my sentiment to the left of it. Before adding the entire panel to my white card base I misted the left side of my card base with the same mist I misted my background with. I stamped two of the little bees onto some white cardstock, colored them, fussy cut them, and adhered them to the left side of my card base. I also re-stamped the flower top and butterfly that I used in my scene, colored them, fussy cut them and popped them up with some foam tape to give my card some dimension. 


The Spring Flowers stamp set is a lot of fun to play with, there are so many different ways you can mix and match the images. You can find the Pretty Cute Stamps stamp set I'm using today in the Shop HERE. Thanks for visiting!

Remember Why You Started

4.05.2016


Hello everyone! Today it's my turn to post over at the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog. My card features stamps from The New You stamp set against a brightly distressed background. 


I added some polka dotted patterned paper from Pink Paislee's Memorandum Collection to my card base along with some tan seam binding ribbon. I attached the tan seam binding ribbon toward the upper half  of my card base with some mini gold staples. After my card base was finished I stamped the "When you feel like quitting, remember why you started" sentiment onto a panel of white cardstock. I blended two different yellow inks in a circle right above my sentiment and misted/splattered on some tan mist. I also added some tan ink around the outside edges of my panel to give it more of a distressed look. I stamped the little scale onto some white cardstock, fussy cut it, and adhered it to the center of my card panel. 


I hope you enjoyed my card today! Thanks for visiting!

#itsyourbirthday

4.02.2016

Hello everyone! Today I have a colorful Birthday card to share featuring three different stamps from The Rubber Cafe's Little Cupcake stamp set, this stamp set is also the add on stamp set for this months Special Celebration creative cafe card kit. I thought it would be fun to play along with a challenge or two today so I'm entering this card into this weeks "Anything Goes" challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog and this months Work It Wednesday Challenge.  


I kept my card pretty clean and simple by stamping my two sentiments right onto the front of my card base. I stamped the larger Happy Birthday sentiment in black right in the center of my card and the smaller #itsyourbirthday sentiment in a bright blue ink towards the bottom right of my first sentiment. I stamped the fun flowered cupcake onto some white cardstock, colored it with a variety of markers, added some fine glitter over the entire top part of the cupcake, and fussy cut it out. I adhered the colorful glittered cupcake to the center of my card base with some 3-D pop dots right above my Happy Birthday sentiment. I just love the all the fun colors and the way the glitter shines in the sunlight.  You can check out a close up below. 


I hope you enjoyed my Birthday themed card today! Thanks for visiting!
