So happy for you!

Good morning!

Today, I'm happy to be sharing a fun card that I made using the new Love Birds stamp set and coordinating die set. I embossed the images with detail white embossing powder and colored with Copic markers, using a blender pen to clean up the coloring on the white embossed lines a bit.

We hope you'll join us tomorrow for a special feature blog hop!
Have a great day!

Wishing you

Hello friends! Giovana here today with a very clean and simple card for you. For this project I used Sunshine & Flower Clear Set, just released. I used the little flower from this set and stamped it all over the bottom edge, then cut around the edges and added a piece of Strawberry Blush cardstock to create a fun border. I die-cut a stitched label from Bookmark & More Dies set and stamped the sentiment in Coffee Archival Ink.
The flowers were colored with Spectrum Noir Markers, also added Crystal Lacquer and clear glitter to all the flower centers, added red ribbon and the card was done :)

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

Birthday Dots

Hello, it's Bridget here to share with you a birthday card 
made using the newly released Lots of Spots!
I've come to love the color combo of teal and blush pink and I used a 
Ranger Distress Ink Blending tool to sponge the card base 
with Stampin Up's Pool Party and Blushing Bride ink.  
The dots are stamped with white embossing ink in a random 
pattern across the bottom right corner.  
I then cut some circles from vellum and sponged a few
 with the same ink colours, layering them in a random 
way to create some dimension.  The sentiment is also 
from Lots of Spots, I like how the various words can be
 be mixed and matched.  I've become a fan of embossing 
with white on vellum recently, I think Monika's 
beautiful creations have influenced me!
I added some sequins to finish because they seemed to play 
along with the circles/dots theme.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

May Flowers

Hi folks and welcome to Monday!!!  I'm sharing a quick and easy one layer card today, showcasing a darling new set, Sunshine and Flowers.  This sweet set features this large floral stamp along with a whole bunch of individual flower stamps (think endless laying possibilities!) and three sentiments...all for only $15!

My Copic Markers have been feeling lonely so I decided to simply stamp on a cardstock base and spend some time coloring.  Once my image was stamped and colored, I added a sentiment and a big 'ol bow (my ribbon is lonely too!  It's been too long since I've played with ribbon...)

A super clean and simple card to start the week!  I hope you enjoy and be sure to check out all of this month's new sets...just click here

Happy Crafting!

Wishing You Sunshine & Flowers

Hello everyone…Happy Saturday!  Have you had a chance to check out Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April Release?  WOW…eight new stamp sets and five die sets!  To see all the sweet details of this fabulous release, click HERE 

Don't you just love Spring?  Our landscape starts turning green again and flowers begin to show off their splendor, adding glorious color to our world.  Today I'd like to share a card made with one of the new stamp sets that just shouts SPRING…Sunshine & Flowers, designed by Diane Zechman.

The adorable doodled flowers were stamped in Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic Markers.  One of the flowers was colored twice and popped up for dimension.  A Wink of Stella marker was used to add shimmer to the flowers making them sparkle.  Glossy Accents and micro beads were added to the centers of the flowers, and stitching, Baker's Twine, and Enamel Dots finish off the card.  Happy, happy!

Speaking of happy…there's still time to participate in our Release Day Challenge, found at the bottom of THIS post.  Just create something "Happy" and add it to the linky tool for a chance to win a PRIZE…a $20 Store Gift Code

Thanks so much for stopping by…enjoy the beautiful spring day!
