SSS226 Male Birthday Card

I used some manly papers with this sketch. The Sweet Stop this week inspired me to make a male card. I need more of them always. I used some new DCWV paper. The Guy Stack I believe its called. The brads are cool. They have philps and flat heads like screws. The sentiment is a dollar Studio G. I used my Spellbinder to cut the scallop and embossed it. Too bad I wasted my time cutting the blue paper into two piece only to have the circle cover it up! 
Now let the sketch inspire you and come play along with us at The Sweet Stop!

CiSC 6 /thank You Card

Time for another challenge at Clearly iStamp! These card came out so cute and oh the possibilities with this image. I used some DCWV papers that went perfectly with this image. I added a few metal rhinestone brads at the bottom and some ribbon strips at the top. This card I decided to use DP around the edge of the card and image instead of plain card stock and I am diggin it. All around I am happy with this card.
I love these sets. This one is Gigi Giraffe. The image and sentiment are included. They come with the black & white digi and the colored version. I can't help but use the colored version. It is so cute and all I have to so is print it out and my customers have no idea I didnt color it. Easy Peesy!

Inspired Stamps Birthday Card

Today on Inspired Stamps we are making birthday cards. I really liked this birthday paper and was excited to use it however I think it may be a little darker than I like. The sentiment and image are from a wonderful Inspired Stamps set.
This stamp is retiring so you better grab her while you can. Abigial's Gift is colored with Copics. I used my Spellbinders to cut her out and the scallop oval behind her.

SSS225 Turtle Birthday Card

When I first looked at this week The Sweet Stop sketch I was stumped. Then inspiration kicked in and I made this fun card.
I used a new stack of DCWV I got for my birthday. It is my favorite colors so I added my favorite animal to go with is. This is a Sweet N Sassy image. Tommy Turtle's Cupcake is colored with Copics and Glossy Accents was added to the frosting. I did add a flag at the bottom for a sentiment using a Stampin Up stamp.
He is a cutie! I used a Recollection border punch on the green paper side. I cut the turtle and scallop behind it with my Spellbinders.
Come play along with us! Head over to The Sweet Stop to link up your great creations.

Craft Room Sign

 I made this sign to hang on my craft room door. I used this beautiful DCWV paper. I made the words from Plantin SchoolBook and sprayed them with glitter. 
 I hung these to Rosettes from the bottom attached with brown twine. I made a quilling flower for the middle of one of them. The other I cut a circle and added a epoxy sticker from Paper Studio on top of it.
I took white flowers and added Distressed Antique White on the flower from the center out and sprayed with glitter.
I quilled a circle and added them into the center of the flowers.

I quilled a flower for the bottom corner of the plaque.

Here is the original item that I altered from the Dollar Tree. I love who this came out and enjoy having it on my door. I am thinking I will make similar ones for the other doors in the hallway. Thanks for stopping by!

Inspired Stamps Set of 3

Inspired Stamps DT project this week is to make a set of cards using the same scripture stamp.
I used Deuteronomy 31:8 scripture stamp. I had several squares that I had cut awhile back. I cut each one differently and used Distress Ink around the edges.
This paper I bought in single sheets. I believe it is The Paper Studio. I added some buttons for a pop of color. These cards aren't my normal bright style but I try to mix it up occasionally and really liked this paper. 
Head on over to Inspired Stamps and check out all the great sets.
