This is a father's day or birthday card I made using this cute little man owl from The Angel Company. I just thought he would make a fun card for a guy. I computer generated the saying "Whoooo's your Daddy?!?". I added glossy accents to his eyes, beak, and feet for some dimension.

This card uses a bird stamp and saying from the $ section at Michaels. The bird is by inkadinkado and the saying is studio G. The background is a fabulous stamp from Unity Stamp Company called distressed dots. It's a must have stamp in my opinion! I wanted to make this card really spring like and fun, so I added glitter to the bird and the leaves, really bright and sparkly. Just a cheery, bright card.

Here's my first valentine card of the year. I thought this would be a fun kid's valentine for a boy or a girl. I love doing cards with non-traditional colors or styles, so they are more general. These are more stamps from the $ section at Michaels. The dog is by inkadinkado. I colored him using bic markits. I cut around the arms using a craft knife so he could hold the acrylic heart. Used nestabilities to cut the circle pieces. Those things are awesome! Thanks for checking out my new cards, and happy stamping!!! :)

New Stamps, New Cards......

I ordered some stamps through The Angel Company, and these are the first cards I made using them. Their style is great, lots of unique, awesome stamps! These owls and sayings were on my list of must haves, so of course I had to order them. I colored this card using Bic Markit's for a faux copic look. I added a little strip of Sassafrass Lass paper and a prima flower with gem brad. I love the funky vintage style.
This is one of my favorite flower stamps ever. It's just beautiful! I colored it using colored pencils and added the gems for a bit of sparkle.

This angel set is just the sweetest thing. I was drawn to it from the moment I saw it. I first saw The Angel Company at the Creating Keepsakes convention this fall and they had these angel cutouts standing up that were almost life size. They were just beautiful! Then I saw that they were a set of stamps in their catalog. I just love them. I colored this angel using watercolor pencils and a waterbrush. It gives such a soft, pretty look. Thanks for looking and happy stamping!!

Valentine Cards!

Here are some Valentine's I've been working on. I just had to have this owl and saying when I saw them. I'm kind of crazy about owls right now :). I'm also crazy about Imaginisce paper. I just love it! This one is from the fairy tale line, it's got just a little bit of sparkle, so cute. I used my new nesties for the circle and scalloped piece. They are FANTASTIC! So easy to use and they just look great!
I've had this set for a while and just used this stamp for the first time. I just think it is so cute. I love the look of houndstooth, so I thought this paper would be perfect for a funky, vintage feeling valentine card. I added glitter and glossy accents to the olive for some bling. I also added the little heart gems.

This one is just a simple love card. Could be used for valentines, wedding, anniversary. I loved the paper, and wanted to do something simple with it. I used the Love stamp from Unity Stamp Co., some gems, a paper flower, and a little heart acrylic accent. Thanks for looking :).

Hello again!

I'm finally getting around to putting more projects on here. With the Holidays and everything I've been so busy. I was getting sick of my blog, so I changed it all up! So much fun! Here are some of my new cards. This one is really fun. I got this cuttlebug folder and it inspired the whole card for me. This butterfly from Unity Stamp Co. is just so pretty. I colored it using Bic Mark it's for a faux copic look. I'm already sick of winter and snow, so I needed to work on something springy.
This is just a simple thank you card with a new House Mouse that I got. I had this idea right away when I saw the stamp. Just colored it with colored pencils. Really easy but such a cute little mouse.

This bird stamp is a new one I got, so I wanted to get something made with it. I added the cuttlebug border, I love the look of the borders. The colors are very different from those that I usually use, but I like them. They look kind of vintage. It was just a really quick and easy card.
