SC906 21st Birthday

Good morning! Using another one of the Stamping bella's that I got a few weeks ago called Beer Gnomes. So cute don't you think? They are colored with various Copic markers and layered onto blue base. Die cut the 21 and balloons for the birthday celebration they are having. Stamped the sentiment above the balloons and voila! Easy Peasy.

SC905 Blue Birthday Blooms

Happy Wednesday! Behind in my birthday cards again this year. Sometimes I wonder where the time goes anymore. This is a quick one with the designer floral paper doing all the work. No coloring makes for quick cards too. Die cut a few pennants for the layers behind the birthday sentiment. 

Voila! Easy Peasy and a birthday card done. Here is a glance at this week's SC905 sketch.

SC903 Gnomes under the keg

Happy Wednesday! I finally broke down and bought a few of the Gnome sets from Stamping Bella. They are so fun and I am enjoying coloring them up. The first one I bought is called Two Gnomes and a keg. The sentiment in the set is perfect for the inside of this birthday card too. hee hee  

I stamped the little growler along the bottom there from another one of the sets I bought that goes well with both. Colored with various copic markers and then popped those up on dimensionals. Pierced around the brown edge and also embossed the base layer. Voila! Super cute I think. 

Here is this weeks sketch SC903 at a glance. Hope you can play along.

SC902 Butterlfies

Morning. Butterflies once I start I end up cutting them out every time and popping out the wings from the card. I know after awhile you would think I would stop by I simply can't. ha ha Anyways this is Majestic Monarch from Sweet n Sassy and I am not sure its even available anymore? I have colored the two smaller ones in the set with Copic markers and then popped them up on the base white layer. 

Added some colored dots with the markers to match the colors on the butterflies. Some sparkle on wings and voila! I like the springy feel of this.  

This weeks Sketch SC902. Happy Stamping!

SC901 Birthday Blooms

Good morning! Today I am using another of the new embossing folders I got a few weeks back of these leaves and I just love the feel of them as the background with these blooms. I stamped and colored each of the blooms with Copic markers and then I cut around them to pop up on the base.

These blooms are from Abundant Petals stamp set that is not available anymore but still a favorite. I added a birthday sentiment to the vellum panel and two enamel dots to cover the glue dots used to hold it in place. Some sparkles to the petals and voila! Springy and fresh feeling I think.

Here is this weeks Sketch SC901 at a glance. Hope you get to play along with us this week.

SC900 Help comes from the Lord

Good morning. Missed the last few sketches so I am glad to be back in the stamp room. This was simple sketch, but I had a hard time coming up with an idea. I believe this stamp is no longer available and called Be encouraged. This is a new embossing folder to be that I just now am playing with. I added the same color to the center of the flowers. 

Die cut a few flowers to added to the sentiment panel. A jewel center and voila! 
Here is the SC900 sketch at a glance. Hope you can play along with us.

SC897 Butterfly thanks

Morning. This paper pack has all different hues of blue and I just love it. It is called Glamour from Authentique and I can't remember when I got it. Probably years ago but still have several sheets left. This was perfect for my card today to show a few of the designs in the pack. 

I stamped these butterflies out from Pure Prairie Spirit stamp set which is not available now but, we do have a digital version. Colored with Copic markers then I cut around them to pop up on dimensionals. Then added some shimmers to make them shine and it looks so much better in real life. I had trouble getting that to show in the photo but its there. Voila!

Here is the sketch at a glance. Hope you can play along with us this week.

SC896 Coffee and Friends

This pack of paper is so pretty and the coffee theme is perfect with the colors. The paper pack is called Coffee with Friends from Echo Park and I bought it months ago and just now am using it. No stamping on this card at all as I used the paper to my advantage. 

I added the layers for each piece and then added sparkle to the base swirls and the cups on the one panel and the words coffee on the sentiment panel. Three brads added to the green stripped panel and voila. This came together very quick and easy today. 

Here is the SC896 Sketch at a glance. Hope you can play along with us. 

Here is another one that uses only the designer paper from the same pack. Added a little bit of a die cut flourishes behind the sentiment panel. Added some sparkle and a few scatters sequins for accents. Voila

SC895 Bliss Tidings for March

Morning. The plan was to get more stamping time in and well that hasn't happened as much. Just be happy I get what time I do get I guess. Anyways this was using stamp set Amaryllis Bliss but only the digital version called Amaryllis is available. I do love coloring these petals. I sized the image panel up first knowing I was going to have to cut it. Then colored with various Copic markers. 

Found a tutorial to follow for the cutting of the shapes and did okay not as great as I wanted. Then added them to the base layer. A little bit of stickles and some jewels. Voila 

Here is the Sketch Challenge SC895 at a glance. Hope you can play along this month.

SC894 Fathers day float

Morning! Figure might as well start on the Father's day cards and get those done. Yes I know it is after Mother's day but I like to work on masculine cards first. ha!  This is using an old set that is no longer even in business. It was called Guiding Light one of my favorite guy go to sets. Stamped and colored with various Copic markers. Then cut out so I could pop up on dimensionals.

The fun edges on this were a little difficult but I think I got it correct and my Antique map fit pretty good for the background. Added suduko gel pen to the lines for shimmer looks really cool in real life. Textured the base and added some seaguls behind the boat and sequins to finish if off. Voila!

Here is sketch SC894 at a glance. Enjoy!

SC893 Pink and girlie

Happy Wednesday are you ready for another Sketch Challenge? Grabbed this fun gal for my card since I have not used her in awhile. She is from Stamping bella called Uptown girl Fiona loves flowers. I think I have only used her like once or twice before. Went with a lot of pink for this one because of who it is for. My designer paper is from a ODBD pack that was perfect with her flowers. 

Colored using Copic markers and die cut with a simple circle. The flowers were layered and the edges folded out for dimension and pearl centers with some sparkle added to the petals. Very girlie and very pink for my taste but I know they will love it. hee hee

SC892 Celebrate

Good morning! This weeks sketch challenge was rather straight forward and honestly I am not sure this turned out how I thought it would. The jury is still out but I did get in the stamp room so we are good. :-)  Only stamping I actually did was the sentiment on this with a sentiment from Bough Wow Wow.

 The designer papers were from the scrap box and a simple circle punch. Added some texture with the awesome never go out of style swiss dots for the background. A little bit of sparkle around the edges and  Voila! 

Here is a picture of the SC892 Sketch and hope you can play along this week!

SC891 8th Birthday

Happy Wednesday! This week is my first week joining the weekly sketch team over on SCS for a few months. Very excited and hoping to get a lot of time in stamping again. This week is perfect for the birthday card I needed for my nephew Colin. 

I used the little guy from a retired set from Whiff Of Joy that I just adore. The only second mouse stamps that I have ever liked. haha  Anyways... He is stamped on white cardstock and colored with various Copic markers. I then die cut a few balloon for the panel down the side in the sketch. Added a die cut 8 to the bottom balloon and some matching designer paper for the bottom panel. Voila! 

Here is a glance at the sketch SC891. Hope you can play along with us this month!

Rose one and two for today

My English Rose still has to be a favorite rose, which is retired. However Marcy has several other digital rose versions and a FREE one if you would like a rose to pick from. There is a reason I keep a lot of stamps and don't go for the digital version. I just like to stamp this out and color. Call me old fashion stamper. ha ha!  Anyways, this first one is using the designer paper for the color choice of purple. The base layer purple is a shimmery pack that I have hardly used so it was meant to be. 

A few Spellbinder decorative die cut edges for the main panel with some sparkles. Then wrapped lace trim and a tied ribbon bow. 


This might be my Valentine card this year we will see. I like the simplicity of this and the rose just shines stamped off the panel. A few layers of paper and designer paper. Then sequins scatter about with the sentiment stamp on the side. I did take a Suduko gel pen and trace all around the petals which you can kinda see at the top. Looks really cool in person. Voila!

Sweet Avery

Morning. I used the designer paper from the other day when I was colored flowers for this card. It seems to go very well with little Avery May Flowers digi that I haven't used forever. She is just darling don't you think? 

She is colored with various Copic markers and then added to a scallop edge panel. Embossed a stitched edge for the designer paper and added my image panel. A button and twine combo for the sentiment tag and then some sparkles to her socks and dress. Voila!

Lilac's and relax

Morning! Busy week however I am working in creations when I can. This is using Lilac Time which is retired but a digi version called Lilac and Lemons you can still purchase. Pulled colors from the designer paper with the hues of purple and yellow for my lilacs. Works well since there is lemons in the stamp too.  ;-)  

Wrapped lace trim and some ribbon around the base layers. My image panel onto a Spellbinders die cut bottom and popped up on dimensionals. Tied a bow and then some enamel dots and sparkles to finish it off. Voila!

Flowers for January

How about some flowers instead of winter or Christmas cards? This first one is using Simply Camellia's stamp but you can get a digital version also called Camellia's. They are stamped on white cardstock and colored with various Copic markers. Used some the woodgrain paper pack I got back in November for the base layer. Pierced around the edge to match the Spellbinders die cut edge I added to the base of the image panel. A few scraps of paper with fish tale ends for the sentiment circle. And then a flower button and twine to tie it all together. Oh and yes there is Suduko gel pen on the flowers but its hard to see in the photo. 

Sorry this is another retired stamp but the digi version is called Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher. The designer paper was the color choice on this one with the soft pink and hints of yellow. Scored around the edge of the image panel after I colored the flowers. Popped it up on dimensionals, scattered some pearls and hints of sparkle to finish it off. Voila!

Thanks for stopping by!
