Happy Easter from the Fur Babies

Just hopping in to share two Easter cards and my fur baby Easter photo! I hope you are having a beautiful day :)

I created a one layer card for easy mailing. This uses Papertrey Ink "Mini Blooms" stamp set and the sentiment is a mix of Avery Elle "Oh Happy Day" and PTI "Polka Dot Parade #1". I used Hero Arts shadow inks.

I'm also entering this card in the current Curtain Call challenge "confetti crush".

Happy Easter to you!

Sending Happy

Friday seems to be a good day to spread a little extra HAPPY to the people around you. I was up late last night playing with the new Unity Stamp of the Week "Sending Happy Your Way" and couldn't wait to share it. I'm linking up with Unity FWF party!

Everything about this little card makes me happy. I colored the stamp with Copics and die cut using Lawn Fawn "Stitched Journal Die". The pattern papers are from DCWV "Honey Chic" stack. I also splattered some fun Color Shine mists in "Pink" and "Teal" and tied it all off with a bright magenta bow.

This is my favorite Stamp of the Week I've worked with yet. It will be great for so many different occasions, and yes it is SO much fun to color!

I'm getting this posted just in time for the Paper Issues link up "Pocketful of Sunshine". My card doesn't exactly have a sun on it, but it seems very bright-sunshiny-day so I'm linking it anyways :)

Have a beautiful weekend.

Public Art Layout

I have a textured filled scrapbook page to share today. I'm using some photos from my recent trip to South Carolina to visit my friend Donna (more pictures on this post). I am also excited to link up this layout in Virginia's View Challenge to use stencils!

On our 'history lesson' day, we visited some cool public art pieces mostly situated in an old parking lot around downtown Columbia. I will never forget that giant metal fire hydrant!

Here are some close up shots of all the texture included in this page. I used DCWV stencils with modeling paste to give the diamond pattern around the base layer. I also added layers of teal patterned corrugate paper and teal cork (both from DCWV). I added a nice helping of staples around the page, both for texture and function to hold all those layers on tight.
