Welcome Little One - 2 baby cards

  Spring and Summer are the perfect seasons to create baby cards. I'm sharing two sweet baby cards here and at the Topflight Stamps blog featuring stamps and stencils from Craft Emotions.

I created these cards uses the adorable stamp set "Baby Girl" by Craft Emotions. I started by stamping every image on Neenah cardstock and coloring with my Polychromos pencils. I fussy cut the images with my Cutter Bees.

To create the starry background I used a Craft Emotions Starry Sky stencil with Cosmic Shimmer Paste and Wow! Embossing Glitter in Coconut Ice. 

I also created a second card using all blue and the tiny star and heart stamps available in the set.

The background was stamped with the tiny images using a variety of ink colors from Prism Ink.

Have a very creative week ahead. Thanks for stopping in!

Ocean of Love card

  Welcome back and happy Monday! Today I'm sharing a sweet ocean themed card using products available at the Topflight Stamps site.

I really enjoyed coloring all the sweet images in the Heffy Doodle "Oceans of Love" stamp set. They're all so cute that I colored every single image! All images are colored with Copic markers and fussy cut with my Cutter Bee scissors.

I die cut the ocean with Lawn Fawn Stitched Wave Border Die and ink blended the water using Prism inks. I started from lightest at the top to darkest at the bottom. The inks used are Arctic MistPeriwinkle, and Nautical Blue

I then die cut the sand bar from Lawn Fawn Hillside Border dies and heat embossed using Hero Arts Sand embossing powder. 

I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink and the word 'oceans' was stamped with the Nautical Blue Prism Ink.

Thanks for joining me today! Have a creative week ahead!

Meerkat Party with Hobby Art

  Hello everyone, I'm soooo excited to share this card today! This week the Topflight Stamps team is showcasing Hobby Art Ltd products, and I fell in love with their Meerkat Madness stamp set.

Don't you just wanna hang out with this partying meerkat? She's definitely having the time of her life!

To create the card, I first stamped and colored the images with Copic markers. I cut the images using detail scissors.

I then stamped the grassy hills and the tree directly to the cardstock panel. I used Copics to quickly color the ground and trees.

Next I used post-it tape to create a rough border along the ground and also to mask the tree. I'll be ink blending the sky and the masking will protect what's already been colored.

Here's what the panel looks like after ink blending and removing the masking paper.

I stamped "Let's Party!" in the top corner and adhered the meerkat with foam adhesive.

I hope you love her as much as I do! Thanks for stopping in.

Uplifting Succulent card tutorial

 The world needs more of YOU! Hello everyone and happy Monday. I'm over at the Topflight Stamps blog sharing this uplifting card with you all.

 I started by stamping and coloring with Copics this gorgeous succulent image from Paper Rose called Flower Pot Border. I also fussy cut the image with Cutter Bee detail scissors.

Next, I used the stencil Jofy PS310 from Paper Artsy to ink up the background of my card panel. The colors used are Prism Ink Canary Yellow and Prism Ink Camillia Pink.

Then I pulled out my Versamark ink pad and the beautiful Magic Metallics Wow! Embossing Powder trio. I inked the edge of the sentiment strip with Versamark ink and used Brassy Twinkle powder. The sentiment is from the Stampers Anonymous Tiny Text stamp set.

I decided the card needed even more of this gorgeous powder, so I inked up the edges of a second layering panel to heat up with the Brassy Twinkle powder.

Put it all together and here is the finished look...

Crazy Bunnies Mini Book + Video

  Happy Monday everyone! I'm over at the Topflight Stamps blog and I'm really excited to share this little flip book I created using the cutest stamps from Carabelle called Crazy Bunnies. I have a jam-packed video showing the process which includes coloring, gel press, paint, stencils, and stamps.

Aren't they so confusingly cute?! I started by coloring the bunnies with Faber Castell Aquarelle Watercolor pencils and then fussy cut the images. I used Strathmore Mixed Media paper because it is thinner than watercolor paper but easier to cut and still holds the water from watercoloring. I then created several gel-prints for backgrounds, which you'll see in my video. I used my Gelli Arts gel plate with a speedball brayer. I used those backgrounds to put together a little book.

I kept the cover of the book simple, with an uncolored bunny on top of a gel print. The print uses Hung Up on Hearts stencil and Zesty Zing paint from Paper Artsy.

The first page uses the blue and yellow bunny. I also used the Hung up on Hearts stencil with Cosmic Shimmer paste and Wow! Magic Metallics embossing powder on every page. The background of each page is stamped with AALL & Create Reckoner Digits.

The middle page uses the red and teal bunny on top of a plaid gel print. I love the print because it reminds me of Clueless! The plaid stencil is called Highlander from Heffy Doodle.

This little bunny in his tattered sweater is my favorite of the group. He is placed on top of a gel print that uses Paper Artsy stencil PS310.

Please enjoy the process video that will walk you through how I created the entire mini book. Thank you for watching!

Hoppy Easter

 Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating today. I have a hoppy little bunny card to share for the occasion. I've already shared this card on my instagram, make sure to follow me there as well!

I combined three Lawn Fawn sets to create this card. The sets are Butterfly Kisses, Better Days, and Hoppy Easter. I colored each image with the Copic markers you see below. I fussy cut the images with my Cutter Bees.

I started by masking off a portion of the card with post-it tape. I then created the sky by ink blending Distress Ink Spun Sugar and Squeezed Lemonade.

I added some Distress Rock Candy glitter to the little heart the bunny is holding. Finally, everything is better with splatters so I splatted Dina Wakley Apricot spray to the panel. I framed it off with paper from Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham Rainbow pack.

Have a lovely Sunday!

Mother's Day Watercolor Card

Mother's Day will be here before you know it! I'm over at the Topflight Stamps blog today sharing a floral watercolor card perfect for mom 💗

I started by die cutting Strathmore Watercolor Paper with my Wonky Stitched Rectangles die. I then used Wow! Golden Glow embossing powder, which is my newest obsession, to stamp the floral image from AALL & Create Filaments and Feathers set. The glitter effects in the powder are stunning! I then dusted off my Peerless Watercolors to paint the image. I'm so glad I rekindled my love for those gorgeous watercolor paints! I will be using them much more frequently.

I stamped the sentiment and the hearts using Concord and 9th Petite Posie stamp set and fussy cut with my Cutter Bee detail scissors.

I'm adding a video to try to capture the gorgeous embossing powder glitter. I highly recommend this heat gun for your embossing needs!

Thanks for stopping in and happy watercoloring!

When it Rains...

 ...Look for Rainbows!

I'm so happy it's finally spring! It's such a fun time for card makers to pull out all of the rainbow and floral themed stamp sets. This little get well soon card features two stamps from Lawn Fawn: Here for you Bear (free with purchase at the time) and Beary Rainy Day.

I created the scene starting with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Die and blended Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass on the bottom and Squeezed Lemonade on the top. I put glue on the bottom to add Rock Candy Glitter to help it look like a sunny day with glistening rainy puddles on the ground.

I colored all of the images with these Copic colors and cut them out easily with my Brother Scan n Cut. I layered the scene on top of some cute Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham paper.

I created this card for the current Lawnfawnatics inspiration board challenge.

Spring has Sprung!

  It is finally spring! The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the cute little bugs are coming out to play! I'm also sharing this card over at the Topflight Stamps blog.

The day I created this card I actually had a ladybug fly in through my office window. It was meant to be! I used the adorable Bugs 1 set by Craft Emotions and colored the images with Copic markers. There are so many sweet insect-themed stamp sets by Craft Emotions, it was hard for me to pick just one!

I die cut the sentiment Spring has Sprung from Lawn Fawn's Henry's ABCS and I just love the little worm crawling through the letters. I also popped the ladybug on foam adhesive to make him stand out more. The background dies are Waffle Flower A2 Lacy Layers dies that I cut from the new Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham paper pad.

Thanks for joining me and I hope you're enjoying some warm sunshine where you live!

Topflight Stamps 5th Birthday Blog Hop!

*** Leave a comment for a chance to win $25 gift certificate! ***

Giveaway closed

It's Topflight Stamps 5th birthday and to celebrate, I’ve teamed up with some great designers to showcase celebratory projects using the unique products available at Topflight Stamps. Please hop along with us and see all the beautiful talent from this group of amazing designers! You should have arrived here from Jennie's blog. If not, no worries, catch the details below.

I've created 4 different birthday cards to help celebrate Topflight Stamp's 5th birthday! I even have a card video to share to show how I create my bee card.

All of my cards today use the adorable stamp set "Party 2" by Craft Emotions. I couldn't decide which image to use so I created cards with all of them. I colored all of my images with Copic markers and cut them out using my Brother Scan n Cut.

Here's a quick video of the Hap-Bee Birthday card:

I fell in love with the sweet puffer fish stamp. I layered two of them in front of some floating bubbles as they celebrate.

Next I have the darling elephant and turtle. I love how the turtle looks up in awe at the glittery balloon :)

Lastly, every stash needs a belated birthday card. I image the poor turtle is getting slowed down even more by carrying so many balloons with him...

Follow along here and if you get lost you can always start at the Topflight Stamps Blog. Your next stop is Connie. Happy Hopping!
