You can’t help but fall in love with adorable girl.  So of course I wanted to focus on her.

So I had an idea to sponge an apple behind this cute little girl.  I used the apple Cricut cut from Artbooking. I sliced the apple with a card base shape and then cut.  I then used the pieces to mask off the areas like this.

I used  my scissors to cut the stem and leaf so they were separate pieces.  I placed the apple and stem pieces to sponge the leaf with Fern.  I then placed the leaf piece and removed the stem to sponge in the stem area using Nutmeg and Espresso inks. Next I sponged the apple.

Placing the stem and leaf pieces I sponged the apple in Ruby.

I used my ShinHan markers to color the little girl and stamped the sentiment on Fern cardstock.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of June and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

I love this jar!! I knew that would be the center of my creation.  I decided to do a jar full of flowers.  I really am happy with how it turned out.  I crated more of a jar look by using white daisy cardstock as the base of the jar then stamped the jar image on velum to layer.

Here is a side view so you can see that layering.

For this card I got to play with a few of the new products from the Seasonal Expressions 2 that is now live!! I used Beautiful Friendship paper pack for the background. The flowers are Trillium Cluster – #MD6F60F which is from Flower Market.  I did slice some of the stems and leave off a few flowers but wanted to create a cluster.  I used Canary, Nutmeg, Linen and Fern as the colors for the flowers.  I used the Fresh Air Cardmaking and Die set for the sentiment.  I masked the stamp so I could get the Smile in canary ink.  I added a little of the Blue Burlap Ribbon and Clear Sparkles to finish off the card.  I did watercolor a bit of blue on the white stamped jar.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of May and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

March Stamp of the Month ~ Birthday Time

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring March’s stamp of the month ~Birthday Time (S1803) a set of 26.

If you are coming here from MICHELLE STEWART’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 25 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

So I am still in love and have not been able to break away from the Stargazer stamp sets so I decided to blend the Stargazer Scrapbooking set with Birthday Time.  

I used a background die that I had in my stash to cut the Pacifica cardstock.  I then chose Canary cardstock to back the Pacifica. I found a flame on my Cricut Subscription which I cut and then trimmed a little to get it to fit with the space ship. I used my silver embossing power on the ship and my markers to color.  For the planets I stamped the Saturn twice once in Ruby and once in Fern.  I cut the Ruby ring out and colored it in, then pieced with the Fern Saturn. I added yellow marker to the other Ruby planet.

I decided to try another background after watching this Video.  So I used watercolor paper and our inks.

I used some washi tape to hold the Water Color paper down. I then used Sapphire ink.  I squeezed the pad together while closed so ink is put onto the top. I then wet the watercolor paper and picked up ink with my brush and painted the paper.  I then did the same thing with Lemon ink but plastered the ink.  I then took my Shimmer Brush and did the same thing as the Lemon.

So for this one I also used the Stargazer Scrapbooking stamp set Fern and Ruby Inks and bitty sparkles.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of March and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

I got an idea to make a card to using all the months of the year.  I could not find a stamp set to match the sentiment I had in mind so I created one.

For this card I used the basic fundamentals for the base.  I then used Linen cardstock to stamp the months of the year with Pewter ink.  I then used velum to soften the stamped Linen.  I also used Heather cardstock for the banner which I cut with the cricut and used black pen to write the sentiment.  The Love you is our silver cardstock also cut on the cricut.

October Stamp of the Month ~ Christmas Tunes

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring October’s stamp of the month ~Christmas Tunes (S1710) a set of 7.

I was really drawn to the snow globe so I know that would be the stamp set I wanted to focus on.  I decided I used one of the Adventure fundamental paper for the background to emboss.

I also though I would grey to stamp on the silver foil paper with the Archival Black ink which work.  Just let it sit for a couple of minutes before you touch it. I did a bit of fussy cutting with the silver foil, Pewter cardstock and the White cardstock.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of October and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!
