Happy Birthday-Outta This World

Hi everyone we are up with a  new challenge over at A Random Fan and the theme is Anything Goes, I used ASTRO BOY to create this birthday card for a young boy, the moon was a digi image from Dustin Pike, then I just matted it all on black cardstock, spattered some white paint and yellow stars and placed a happy birthday flag on the moon.  I hope you like it and will come join our new challenge! We'd love to see what you create! :)

Your Next Stamp After Party

Hi everyone, I hope you have enjoyed the new release from Your Next Stamp! There are so many fun, new stamps and dies to play with, how cool is that Hippie Owl?  I think super cool!! I definitely have my eye on a few things that will go on my want/wishlist! :)

 For my after party project I used the cricket and sentiment from Bitty Bugs along with one of the jars from Jam Jars to make this cute little tag.  I wrapped the bread with tulle and attached the tag, I also had a jar of jam but forgot to put it in the picture.  I thought this was just the perfect set for a little tag!

Please head over to Your Next Stamp and check out what the design team have created, they are so talented and creative, you'll find more inspiration and new projects using the new release stamps and dies.

For You-Your Next Stamp

Happy Friday!!  It's another Fun Friday over at Your Next Stamp!  Do you need some mojo help?  Come check out the inspiration provided by the amazing DT and the awesome sketch and inspiration picture, the sketch is so fun and versatile.  

This is my take on the sketch and I used the lovely and sweet Tobi with Rose image, the banner and letters are also from YNS called Skinny Font Alpha Set, that banner and font work perfectly for a quick personalized sentiment!  
I colored her with copics, her dress I actually used my blue Spectrum Noir markers that are fairly new to me.  I'm pretty obsessed with my copics, but the SN's are really nice too and much less expensive.   I added some gems and some adhesive flowers from Martha Stewart.  

I  hope you like! Come and join the fun over at YNS!!


Owl-Always Love You

I'm so excited to be sharing my first card as a guest designer over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps!  I got to play with this little cutie Celeste Amberglow Owl Always Love You and she was so much fun to color!

I colored her to match a sticker set I've had for a couple years from ADORNit- the Owl Coral collection.  I love the little heart and brackets and just added some twine and pattern paper, other than that, I really like to showcase the image and have that be the focal point of my card.  I tend to keep things clean and layered, with just a few embellishments, and with a larger image.  I love the little owl she is holding, it reminds me of these super, super cute owls that someone had handmade for a girls birthday party.  I can't remember the blog or the site, but they were so cute! Anyway, I hope you like my card and you can check out more inspiration over at the Little Miss Muffets FB page.

A Random Fan challenge!

Ok, isn't this image just the cutest?  This image is called I Miss You and you can grab it HERE.  I used this cute image for my first DT card over at A RANDOM FAN and 
the challenge is to use pattern you can see, I used A LOT of pattern paper!  
It just kind of worked out that way, but I love the colors and think it all worked well together. 

I colored her with copics and then just started layering paper of different sized and shapes, the banner was made with a banner stamp from Some Odd Girl, I'm not sure if it's still available, I couldn't find the set in the shop. I added twine and gems and the rest is just paper.  

I hope you like it and will come join the fun over at A RANDOM FAN!
