Hooray! You rock!

Hello friends!
Happy Thursday!

Hoping you are enjoying your day!

I just love this cute little football buddy when I received this critter sheets in my DT Kit and such fun putting this card together. My DT post for DCAM store!
Check out the concentration on his little face, so cute!



I've always found boys cards such a tough challenge but these images are just stinkin' cute and made my work easy. And boys cards forced me out of my color comfort zone, it's rare that I use cherry red now, isn't it!


Firstly, I created my own background for this cute guy using Hexagon stencil in bright colors to match my playing fun scene.



Then I hand cut all those images from the critter sheet. Created a fun playground, added some movement to the football and placed my images with some shadow touch on an Inverted stitched scalloped white panel along with stitched circle scalloped frame.


Stamped the cool sentiment in jet black ink, fussy cut it. Die cut a fence and created this whole fun scene with bold hooray chiplet sentiment and some buttons with coloured twine!

Have fun!

Hello sunshine

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Spring Fling Hop here at STAMPlorations, it's day 12!

I am always happy when I can find new ways to use these old friends! I hope this has given you a little inspiration to give new life to some of those less used sets sitting on your shelf!
In keeping with my resolve to use all stamp sets or stencils and not just those that are the latest and greatest, I reached for the Kathryn Thanks Teacher stamp set to combining Bold florals stencil.



My card is done in a fresh Spring green, yellow and oranges coloring combo. I think she is so adorable!


I used the Artplorations Bold Florals stencil to create my own background. I applied the crackle paste through the stencil and let it dry. Then added some gelatos to more interest and textures.
There is a tint of yellow, orange and lime green touch in the floral background and it helped to soften the overall look, however.



Then I stamped the girl image, fussy cut it.
I hand colored the foreground grassy landscape. And finished it off with the sentiment Hello Sunshine says it all with some tiny sequins for my flower centres!

Another year flew by

Hi everyone!
Welcome back to my blog! Hope you are having a wonderful and creative day!

For today's card. I paired the flew by mini stamp set with some spring blooms and the fun woodgrain dry embossed background.



I started my card by preparing a white panel and added embossed woodgrain panel for some textures. Creating an inverted scalloped frame that I mounted on it.
I used my Zig Clean Color pens and watercolored all of my stamped flowers and cute Toucan guy. Fussy cut them all and some with coordinating die. Foam mounted all inside the frame to create a fun and bright scene to brighten someone day by adding a sentiment with faux stitching.



I love the happy colors on this bird and had a lot of fun playing with all these sweet little touches to this ard! The flowers..... totally make me think of Bali, you see these flowers everywhere in Bali!

And I love the fact that well- colored card doesn't need any embellishments 😊

Pocket blooms

Hello!

STAMPlorations Spring Fling 12 Days of Giveaway Event

STAMPlorations is celebrating Spring Fling Hop! I am so thrilled to have been invited to be a part of Spring Hop as a Guest Designer! We are hoping to give you some inspirations for this special hop!

Over at STAMPlorations Blog, we've got a fun 12-day event and today is DAY 5!
We are giving away one prize every day to one lucky commentator who hops and leaves comments on The STAMPlorations blog and participating Designer's blog.


 I am sharing this cheerful card using a variety of stamps that are perfect for any special person!
Take a peek what I made!




First I created my own background pattern using my finger sponge dauber. I randomly added some polka dots using pigment ink and before drying I applied some Perfect pearl using my brush for glam. I gave a more definition to it by filling the gap by using my white gel pen.



Using Sweet Spring Wishes stamp set, I first masked up the floral image and stamped my image. Fussy cut them.
Do you see the shimmer on the flowers and leaves?? I added some sparkle with Wink of Stella Pens!
Die cut a pocket out of vellum sheets two times and convert it into a shaker.


Using Crazy Double running Stitch rectangle die cut a white panel, added the sentiment and applied Perfect Pearl on it. And created the whole design with a cute shaker pocket (a touch of Denim look) and cheerful blooms!

This sentiment is a perfect compliment to let your friends know how much they mean to you!


Isn't it cute!
