Blah! & I Love Paper Smooches.

I have spent the last week or so organizing in my craft room so I haven't created anything new.  Now that I am done I am feeling a bit under the weather.  I have to thank my sister for the lovely bug she passed on to me.  Anyway, hopefully I will be feeling better soon.

I was looking over my favorite web sites and wanted to let everyone know that Paper Smooches one of my favorite stamp stores is having a blog hop you need to check out.  They are releasing several new stamps sets and dies.  Of course a must have for me.

I also wanted to shout out to Kim Hughes Paper Smooches owner.  Her customer service goes above and beyond.  She is so great and I know I will receive the best service and quality when ordering and using Paper Smooches products.   Also my orders arrive quickly and packaged up so adorable.  Thanks Kim for the emails, I really appreciated your help.   I need a badge that says I love Paper Smooches Everything.

Okay I know I posted my haul today but I was so excited to use some of my stamps and supplies I made a card.  I have been waiting to use my Copic spray gun for some time and this was the perfect opportunity.  I used my adorable Paper Smooches chick and the lovely Cuttle Bug embossing folder boarder.

I actually was making this card for a pre challenge summer class I am watching starting in a few weeks with some of the Simon Says Stamp designers, Kristina Werner & Jennifer McGuire.  I love these girls blogs and the first class I took was amazing so I am signed up for the next one.

Any Hoo,  Here is my card.  Hope you like it!

Happy Creating.

Simon Says Stamp Haul

Hey everyone hope your having a fabulous week.

I received another package I have been waiting for and I am in love with everything.  I confess I am a Paper Smooches addict.  I will not be happy until I have collected all of their stamps and dies.  So I got my three animal stamp sets, Chilly Chums, My Peeps & Woofers and Tweeters and of course a couple of dies to go with.  Then I have been eyeballing the pretty phrases set for awhile so had to have it.

I really wanted to try out some of the neon hero arts inks so I am excited to try those and some Doodlebug twine and washi tape, that of course we can not do without.  I also finally got my hands on the full card hexagons from Simon Says Stamp I am in love with it.  So that is pretty much my haul for today.

Can not wait to start creating.

Happy Crafting.

Tags & Paper Smooches Haul

Next I have these little tags I made for Kenzie for Girls camp.  I cut the little elephant out on my Cameo and mounted them on a little tag.  I think the google eyes just made them adorable.

Then I have my order I received from Paper Smooches.  I am so excited to dive into these stamps and make some fun cards.  I love the animals from Smooches and the sentiments.  They are so much fun.
Til next time.  Happy Crafting.

Hi All,
I wanted to show a couple of things that I have been working on.  I love blog hopping and have been to many, wonderful designers blogs.  I have a great time looking over their creations and getting new ideas.

My first little example is Princess Rose from Saturated Canary.  I have said before how much I love the digi stamps from this store.  They are so fun and girlie and just a blast to color.

I colored her with my copics and was practicing with hair and face colors.  I just loved how she turned out.  Of course at the end I added my favorite glitter spritz to just make her sparkle (As every princess should).   So after I colored it I mounted it on Soleil 6x6 paper and embossed the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp in silver, and Viola.

So there you go.  Hope you like it.

SpringTime Memories

I have another quick card for today. 

I was looking for inspiration and thought about the dandelions I have been battling in my backyard since spring.  I remember as a little girl I loved pulling out the dandelions and blowing all of the pretty fluffys into the wind.  It was so fun to watch them fly away.  So I thought this would be a fun stamp to use today.    I love this stamp from CTMH.  I got it years ago and have never used it,  but inspiration comes when it wants so I broke it out and this is the result.

I felt like it needed a bit of color so I added the bow and sprayed the whole card with my shimmer spray (I am in love with this stuff).

Productive day with my sister!!!

Hi all,
Had a very productive day today.  I was hanging out with my sister and made several cards to share with you.  So this first one is for my niece.  She is obsessed with Superman and with the movie coming out this week I wanted her birthday card to be none other than her fav hero.  I have this paper that is all super hero's so it worked out perfect.

Next is another birthday card, this one is for my brother.  He has two fabulous dogs so they were the inspiration for this card.   Loved how this one turned out.

Hey Chickie was inspired by Lori Turner a designer I like to follow.  The adorable birdie is from one of my favorite stamp sets from Paper Smooches call Chubby Chums.  I love this set!!!


This next card was just fun to make.  I got several Hero Arts daubers in the mail and I wanted to play with them and this is what happened.  I white embossed the circles and then put the colors on my craft sheet and smooshed the card around in the colors.  I love the way the colors blended together.  I am going to try this with some other colors.  I also shimmer spritz it after it was all done.  

So this last card for the day I put together for fun too.  I had colored the little clown from Saturated Canary early in the month and wanted to make her a card.  It is so fun and sparkly.  Once I finished putting it all together I spritz the whole card with my shimmer spritz from Imagine Crafts.  You can't see it in the picture but it is so fun.   I am in love with the shimmer spritz.

I hope you like the cards.  Let me know if you have used the shimmer spritz and how you used it.  I would love to hear other ways to use this cool product.  
Thanks for stopping by.  Till next time.  Happy Crafting.

Copics with Close to My Heart Paper

New Card today.  I loved this little stamp because it reminded me of a little hawaiian girl on my daughters Volleyball team in college that is just adorable.  I wanted to make a card for Allora to send to her and this is what I came up with.

The lighting wasn't great but I think it turned out cute.

Hi everyone.  I have been playing with my intense colored pencils and coloring some adorable digi stamps from Saturated Canary.  I haven't made any cards but I wanted to print all of my images and start coloring them so I could make them into cards later.

Okay so Elli the elephant was my first attempt and it turned out okay but I wasn't all that happy with the results.  I didn't give up though.

Cali Girl came out considerably better.  I love this image.  Although I wish the bathing suit was a bit more modest I love how the coloring came out.

The last one I did is Ava ( I believe that is her name).  She is so cute.  Now I am getting the hang of the water colors.  I think I should have printed them on the water color paper but I printed all of the images on Marshmallow Cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and then cut them all out.  I didn't want to waste paper.  I think in the end the water color paper may have been a better choice but I still like the way they turned out.  when I make them into cards I will post them.
