Hello! Today I am playing along with a new challenge I found. Happy Little Stampers! Their current challenge is Clean and Simple “Smile”
As you know, I’m crazy about challenges! So when I find a new one that fits my style, I love to jump on board!
Here is my card
I used the Mama Elephant set “Mermaid Kisses” and put all these cute tiny and smiling ocean creatures around the “Smile” die, which is from Simon Says Stamp
On the inside of the card is this cute smiling mermaid
This will make for a simple little cheer-up card to send out to a friend 🙂
Thanks for stopping by to see it! Hope you have lots of reasons to smile today !
There’s a new challenge over at Double Trouble Challenge Blog!
Thing 1 says to use kraft and Thing 3 says to make it a “kids” theme with the color red. With those fun challenges, here is my card!
Aren’t these antique toys so cute?! They are from a very very old stamp set by Stampin’ Up! Like 18 years old! This set came out in 2002. I have always loved it.
I used alcohol markers to color these sweet little toys and kept the layout clean and simple to highlight them
Thanks for stopping by to visit! Be sure to visit Double Trouble to play along!
Hello! I was so excited to win a gift card to Greeting Farm through Catherine Pooler’s hop a couple weeks ago! I’ve never had any of their products and when I looked through them, I fell quickly in love with the cute little “Potted Plants” set!
Aren’t those little potted cacti so cute?!!
My inspiration came from the sketch over at CAS Colours and sketches challenge
The cute die cut circles are from Reverse confetti and add some fun interest behind the images
And I used Zig Clean Color markers to do the coloring. Those who follow me know how much I love those! 🙂
That’s my card for today! If you go visit me on Instagram, I have a video up of this card coming together in less than a minute!
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
Happy Monday everyone! Not only is is a new week – but it is also a new challenge over at Double Trouble Challenge Blog!
And since Thing 2 is challenging us to pair with Joy of sets – here is their TicTacToe board
I went with the diagonal from top left down to bottom right. It matches perfectly with Double Trouble. So here’s my card!
I used the adorable Birds and the Bees set by Honey Bee stamps
Birthday card, check – Things that fly, check – Sponging? Check! But it might be different than what you are used too with sponging! I don’t even own sponges anymore because it’s been so many years since I used a standard sponging technique. So I took a microbrush (used for eyelash extensions and has a tiny little sponge-type tip on it) and carefully added shading to the centers of the blossoms and throughout the beehive. A sponging type of shading! It’s all about getting creative with our stuff right?! I have those on hand for glue application of tiny die cuts and I’m glad I tried them for something else
I added some sequins all around this branch and hive scene for some sparkle and shine
And my fun birthday card is finished 🙂
So glad you’d stop by to see it! Have a wonderful week and be sure to go play along with these challenges!
Hello! I’m sliding in to play along with the April Sugarpea Designs challenge! I can’t believe it’s the end of April.
I flipped the sketch on its side and colored some of these pretty flowers from the Meadow Motifs stamp set
There’s lots of need for “praying for you” cards right now! I’ll be using this one right away
I used Zig clean color markers to color the images, added some sequins, and with the splattered background this card was finished!
So glad you’d stop by to see it!
Hello! I love the challenge at Simon Says Stamp this week! My favorite stamps are floral images and I love the ones by Altenew. So put those 2 together like Simon did – and I just had to play along!!
Here’s my card. I did a large square format for something different.
This “Flower Arrangement” set by Altenew is so pretty!
And the beautiful colors are from Catherine Pooler. I love her ink pads!
An embossed sentiment and some dew drop embellishments for a nice finish –
And my card is complete
Thank you for stopping by to see it!
Happy new week! Double Trouble has a new challenge today!
Time to grab your Spring stamps and some images that remind you of rain and you’ll be ready to play along!
Here’s my card
My inspiration for the layout comes from the current My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge
I used 2 sets from My Favorite Things to bring this fun little scene together. Magical Friends and Bitty Bears
This cute little bear holding his umbrella on a Spring day is just so cute! I’m excited to be surrounded by flowers like this soon too 🙂
So glad you’d stop by to check it out!
Be sure to visit the Double Trouble Challenge Blog for the details of how to play along with the new challenge!
Have a happy Monday!
