Thank you Teacher......

Hi there.....

Since it is still summer here in Seattle, it's hard to imagine that back to school is only a little over a month away.

That's why I was so excited to use this new image from Little Blue Button Stamps, Teacher Charlie.

I am always in need of great thank you cards for our amazing teachers.

I colored the image using prismacolor pencils and gamsol to blend it out.  I inked around the edges of most all of the die cuts to give it a little more distressed look.

For the inside I just cut a strip of patterned chalkboard paper and stamped a thank you sentiment in white pigment ink.

Thanks for taking a look, hope you enjoyed.

Head on over to the Little Blue Button Stamps store to get this new digi stamp just released for August 2014.

Oh Happy Day........from Little Blue Button Stamps

Hi there.....

Here today with another amazing image from Little Blue Button Stamps, called Wishing Charlie.

I know I might have mentioned before, but I feel like I can never have enough birthday cards, so I decided to make another using this could also be used to adorn so many other great things for a birthday, invitations, a gift bag and so much more.

I watercolored this image using distress markers and added some stickles and wink of stella glitter brush pens to make her sparkle a little.

I also decided to use the falling hearts stencil from SSS, with some embossing paste and then dusted it with some pink glitter embossing powder.

This digi stamp set is so great because it comes with some great accessories, the candle, a Happy Birthday banner flag and also a set of numbers to add some great detail.

Thanks for reading through and looking at my creation, hope you enjoyed.

Thanks.......with flowers!

Hi there....

Wanted to share a card I made using Juice Bar by Moon Cookie Gallery over at Whimsy Stamps.

I always am in need of Thank You cards and thought this image would be amazing watercolored.

I had a lot of fun coloring this using Derwent inktense pencils.  I added a little sparkle with some Stickles and also a butterfly punch.

Also, the thanks die cut if from Lawn Fawn, that I added some foam adhesive to to make it stand up from the card so it didn't take away from these great flowers.

For the inside of the card I just added a few more butterflies and a paper smooches sentiment to finish it off.

Hope you endjoyed this card, head on over to the Whimsy Stamps for this and many other Moon Cookie Gallery images.

Have a great day. =)

Birthday wishes.......

Hi all.....

Here today to bring you some birthday wishes using the adorable Miss Lilly Happy B-day from Little Blue Button Stamps.

I can never have enough birthday cards and I decided to try to watercolor this image using distress markers.

I tried to go really simple to just let the image take center stage...isn't she adorable.

I used only distress markers and a watercolor brush on some 90lb watercolor paper.

To dress it up a bit I used some wink of stella clear glitter brush pen and some stickles to the cake and cherry on top.

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking this out, please head on over to the blog for this image and other released for July.

Hope you all have a great day.

A little......"Beachie"

Hi there.......

Here today to share a fun summery card showcasing the new Beachie digi stamp from the July 2014 release over at Whimsy Stamps.

Now that it's summer here in the Pacific Northwest (US).....this card was such a treat to make.

I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and blended it out using Gamsol and some blending tools.

I die cut the image out using an MFT circle stax die, that leaves this great stitched edge and then gave the image some definition by mounting it on some foam adhesive.

For the inside of the card I just matched the front by adding a few more fishtail flags and a sentiment.

Hope you enjoyed...thanks for stopping by.

Please head on over to Whimsy Stamps for this and so many more digi and regular stamps by some really amazing artists.

Have a great day.

Capture a Moment.....Little Blue Button Stamps

Hello there....

Here today to show off an outstanding new stamp set, Capture a Moment, from the amazing Olga of Little Blue Button Stamps.

She designed this awesome set that comes with the image and sentiments as well.

I made this shaped card and spotlighted the great image with some of the accessories that it comes with.

It's such a great stamp set, because it comes with everything you need to create an amazing card or project.

I paper pieced the dress on her and colored the rest of her in with prismacolor pencils and blended the colors with gamsol and a blending tool.

I used one of the accessories to this set, the film strip and then two of the sentiments.  

On the inside of the card to finish it off, I also used a few more of the sentiments and another accessory the polaroid.  

Thanks for stopping by and checking out this creation.

Please head on over to CC Designs to purchase this stamp set.
