Here for You - On The Floor - With The Cat

Happy Friday!  I've got some fun Miss Ink Stamps today!  I've used the Under the Stairs dies and Letters stamps and dies to create this fun card.

I used the Everyday Sentiments stamp set for the "I'm Here For You" and when I thought of this sentiment I just couldn't let it go... so I printed the rest and added it to the card.

Fun right??  But seriously, if you bring me to a party and you can't find me... I'm probably on the floor with the dogs/cats/any other fluffy animal.

Thanks so much for stopping!  Hope you'll come again soon!

Crafty Elves Countodwn to Christmas - April 2024 Edition

Welcome back!  It's the 25th of the month and time for the Crafty Elves to share the Christmas Cards we made this month!

I had some adorable images from Art Impressions and MFT already colored and cut out from a previous project that just needed fun backgrounds so I decided I'd use them this month.  This pup and the ornaments are from Art Impressions Santa Paws stamp set.

This crafty dude seemed perfect with a fireplace background using the Miss Ink Stamps Letters stamp set.  I colored the floors with Copics and stenciled some wallpaper with the Miss Ink Springtime Lace stencil.  The tree is from a retired Gina K Designs set and I used it because it was the right size to add a Christmas tree to this scene.

The scene is framed with the Photo Frame from AJVD and I stamped a sentiment from a retired MFT stamp set, Deck The Howls.

Next, a background with the Newton's Nook Holiday Foliage stencil.  It's only one layer, but I used a detail brush to add some pink to the berries.  I didn't mask... I just tried to be light with the green where the berries were and then added the pink over it.

This pup is from the MFT Stamps Deck The Howls as well as the sentiment.  The frame is from Funky Fossil.  I decided to insert the inside circle for a less busy background behind that adorable pup.

The big bone is from the Art Impressions set... I just thought it was cute for this little dog to have a huge bone for Christmas.  And the tree was cut using an old Paper Smooches die.  I added ornaments with Nuvo drops and a gold star sequin.

For this one I used the Miss Ink Pawsome stencil for the background.  I masked the stencil to make the paws multi colored rows.  The frame is from Stamps of Life... it's one of my new faves.

I decorated one tree and decided this pup would rather have quantity over quality... so he's got a whole pile of bones for his gift.

The paw ornament is from the AI set and another sentiment from the MFT set.

That's me for today.  My pink and green cardstock on all of these cards is from the latest Your Paper Insider box... and the green glitter is scraps left from a previous box. 

Now be sure to head on over to Debra's place to see what she has for you today!

Happy Bird-day with Miss Ink Stamps

I'm back with some more embossing and watercolor with some beautiful images from Miss Ink Stamps.

I started by stamping and embossing the foliage and flowers onto some watercolor paper and smooshed on some Distress Oxides in blues and greens.  Then I colored the images further using my Zig markers and splattered over some turquoise and gold inks.

Next I stamped, cut and colored the birds and butterflies and colored them in with Copics and popped them up onto the background and added a sentiment and some sequins.

That's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed it and you'll come back again soon.

So Extra - Picket Fence Studios

Hello!  I was so excited to win some Picket Studios stuff after a recent release and was able to pick my winnings.  OF Course! I picked this You Are So Extra die because how fun is that and it's great fun to cut it from some of my favorite glitter papers.

I also picked out that gorgeous Brighter Days Gerbera Daisy stamp and die... I mean... 

You know I spent a little and got extra.... I used some of that gorgeous Luxe Paper Glaze for the first time and I LOVE it!

Check out this fabulous 1970's Coffee Cup! I'd buy that cup!  I was lucky to open up my quarterly Your Paper Insider box today and of course I was going to use the Rainbow Metallic Paper first!  and it was perfect along with the beautiful purple glitter.  I cut the cup once out of each, added foam tape to the back of the cup and then inserted the pieces from one into the other... with the tape already running across the back of the cup it was easy to just stick the pieces where they belonged.  Of course I lost ONE tiny piece... but I just took a scrap of the right color and taped it across the area of the cup it came from and cut a new one... easy peasy!

I mean... 😍... right??  I used the outline die and folded a white piece of cardstock in half and cut the cup outline with the handle hanging over the fold.  Also super easy!

I pulled these coffee sentiment stickers from my Stamplorations stash and added them to some lavender cardstock from a previous YPI box and added it to the front.

Huge thanks to Picket Fence for my awesome haul!  And OMG wait until you see the latest subscription box from Your Paper Insider... it is AWESOME!

Thanks for stopping... come again soon!

Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #28 - Reminder

Welcome back!  It's time for a reminder over at the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge!  I've got some more Sweet N Sassy stamps for you today!

I started by heat embossing that Candy Cane image from the Holiday Cheer stamp set in a random pattern onto a piece of watercolor paper.  Then I added some watercolor using Distress Oxide Inks in blue and I added a little gold shimmery ink.

I stamped one of the sentiments from the set onto a strip and added it across the front.

And finally, that adorable Winter Gnome having his cocoa... or coffee... either one!  Or both!

Now be sure to hop on over to the CCCC Blog for lots more inspiration and to play along for your chance to win a $25 store credit to the Sweet N Sassy shop!
