Lifesavers

I'm having fun today with my stamps.


I almost always use some sort of designer paper on my cards but this scalloped cardstock from DCWV just begged to be used and I wanted to keep the scallops the focal point with the round lives avers. They are colored with copics and have diamond glaze added. The blue specks around the live savers have stardust stickles. I added all the dots around the scallops to add a bit more interest. Maybe it's time to buy some Life Savers. 

Sheltering Flower

I have been creating but I don't seem to get the cards posted on my blog. But here is one for today.


This house mouse is sheltering in his happy place - a flower. It is colored with copics and some diamond glaze on the rain drops. The dp is from basic grey. There are glittery candy dots in the four corners. It was a fun card to make. I found a sketch on pinterest and changed it a bit to fit the image. Sometimes you just need a bit of help to get the mojo moving in a different direction.
The first time I colored this I colored the tail as if it was part of the flower. lol

Bathing Hippo

This stamp is just too cute. I love elephants but hippos are a close second and this one just tickles me.

The image is colored with prisma colored pencils.  The bubbles have crystal stickles on them. The red die cut is from memory box and is a fence that I cut in half and framed the image with. The brads were from Target's Bulleye's playground years ago.
Hope you are having some clean fun.

Cheering

I so badly wanted to be a cheerleader when I was in high school. I loved my school but I have to say I don't have much in the way of athletic ability. I did try out every year but I never made the cheer squad. Probably for the best I would have hurt myself or someone else.So here is a card in memory of those days. I used my high school colors - red and gold. I still love that color combination.


The images are from Stubby Stampers and colored with prisma colored pencils. The megaphone has diamond glaze on it. The pompom has crystal stickles on it. 
May your life lived out loud - have fun.

Dashing through the snow

We had a Kids Fest at my church on Friday and I volunteered to make cards with the kids. They were mostly boys so they didn't want to do it but at least I got another card done.
I have had this stamp forever. It really must be forever as I couldn't even find a picture of it on my computer. It is colored with prisma color pencils. I had a lot of fun getting the teddy bear to look like he has fur. The snow is made from liquid pearls. The snowflakes are from Target's Bullseye's Playground and then have crystal stickles added. The designer paper is from basic grey which is no longer making paper. :(
Have fun on snowy days.

Bathing Hippo

Boy has it been a long time since I posted anything. Live has just been so busy. I have created some just haven't posted anything. This card just tickled me pink so I had to share it.


The stamp is from Stubby Stampers and colored with get this - prisma color pencils.  I usually use copic markers but the pencils have been calling my name lately. The bubbles are done with liquid pears. The water has frosted lace stickles on it. The papers are from lots of different companies - basic grey, bo bunny, target. The tabs are from a die cut.
Check out the inside.
I love those words with this image. I just thought it was too funny. I know I have a weird sense of humor.
Hope you day is big and fun!

Give Thanks

My church has an English as a Second Language Class and we decided to have a Thanksgiving dinner for the class and their families. I made these cards for the invitations.


The stamps are for The Angel Company and colored with prisma color pencils. The words are stamped with a brown memento ink. The dp is from bobunny. The scalloped die cut is from spellbinders. The tag one is from lawn fawn. The little red dots are nail head stickers. The cards worked up pretty quickly which was good as I made 15 of them.

Happy Birthday

Here is a quick happy birthday card using Stubby Stamps.


The confetti squares are stamped with a small confetti stamp in ocean depth versamagic chalk ink and then punched out with a square punch. The scalloped squares are die cuts from spellbinders. The happy birthday is stamped in black and then another die cut from spellbinders and edged in the ocean depth ink. There is another die cut in the blue just peaking out from the white. The plaid paper is from lawn fawn and the blue from bobunny. Great when you need a quick card. I made this on the same day I worked 12 hours.

Bridal Cupcakes

I saw a similar card when I was checking someone out at Target and knew I had to come home and recreate it. The original was by Papyrus. Mine is a bit different but I like it every bit as well.

 
The stamp is from Stubby Stampers. I think the cupcakes are really supposed to be birthday cupcakes but I think they work here just fine. The black cupcake liner is stamped on sparkly black cardstock and embossed with black diamond embossing powder. The mustache is a diecut from Memory Box. The white cupcake liner is stamped on a glittery off-white cardstock and embossed with white diamond embossing powder. The hardest part was finding the string of pearls. I knew I had some but couldn't remember where I put it. lol. The pearls are attached with scor-tape. The flower at the top is done with three flowers layered on top of each other with one pearl from the string on top. A little bit of stickles star dust was applied to the stars on the frosting. The scalloped paper is 8 x 8 by DCWV and folded in half. The dp is from Lawn Fawn. A length of organza ribbon runs under the cupcake layer. Such a fun bridal card.
