Gossmere

I made this card for Tiddly Inks Challenge blog's Bring On the Bling Challenge. And I just realized that the deadline is today. Yeah, I actually checked this time! So I decided I'll have do my Tuesday post on Monday evening... =)

I used Gossmere for my card. She is the gothic princess. I love the little skulls on her crown, hair pins and on her staff/wand. Cute! =)

For the bling, I made the background with Hero Arts' Starburst Lace stamp using the technique that Joy showed here. I spritzed the inks with water+ Perfect Pearls for a beautiful shine. It was made for another project, but I thought the shine from the Perfect Pearls fits this challenge. The background is really pretty in person, but I couldn't get the Perfect Pearls to show up better in the photo. Thanks for the wonderful technique, Joy! =) I also smeared some Star Dust Stickles on the ground just around Gossmere.

I am not so sure about the sentiment though. I might switch it when I need to send this card out. Any suggestions for a fitter sentiment?

You can find more cute and fun digital stamp designs at Tiddly Inks! They are going to have a 30% off sale tomorrow and I am so excited!! I'll be picking up some cute stamps for sure! =)

Hope you have a wonderful Monday evening and a beautiful Tuesday, my friends!

2 Sketches 4 You - Laura's Sketch 53

Happy Monday!! I am here to share another card for 2 Sketches 4 You. Here is Laura's Sketch #53:

Here is my card:

This week's sponsors are Lawn Fawn and Position-It from Score-it-All. Here is another simple tutorial on how I used the Position-It to help me stamp the three images on my card:

I first stamped the cute retro telephone image from Lawn Fawn's just my type set on the acrylic piece that came with the Position-It. I then placed it on my cardstock and made sure it's at the right place I wanted it to be.

By sliding the sub-posotioner, the cardstock and the acrylic piece on to the stationed main positioner, I could make sure that I would be stamping at the right place.

Here is the result:

I repeated the process for both sentiments from the just my type set to get to the final result.

The dot background was then stamped using PTI's Dot Spot set. I then colored an extra phone image and paper pieced it.

That's all I have for today. Hope your week is off to a great start! =)

Candy Apple & Cats Meow

Hi all! I have a little hybrid card to share today.

I used the pretty patterned papers from Kerry Stewart's lovely Candy Apple digital kit. Now that's a yummy name for a sweet digital kit!! All the papers are from Kerry's kit including the lovely polka dot heart shape that the kitty is sitting on. The kitty is from My Cute Stamp's adorable Cat's Meow stamp set. How cute is this little kitty? I adore her (she is a she in this card)! =)

I also colored and cut out the yarn ball and the fish (as a toy in this) that came with the stamp set. The pink and grey polka dot strips are from the Japanese masking tapes that I got from my local Kinokuniya Bookstore. I thought they were perfect for this card! =)

Kerry's kit is also available separately. You can find the papers here and the extras here. Don't forget to check out all the new digital releases at Two Peas here!

Hope you all have a happy Sunday! I'll be doing some coloring! =)

The Smile & Little Bots

Happy Saturday, my friends! =) I have a couple of hybrid cards using digital kits from Two Peas to share with you.

This first one is a simple girly card. The patterned papers are from Michelle Underwood's "The Smile" kit. The big polka dot background is my favorite! =) I stamped the two trims that came with the kit on the pink patterned paper before I printed them out. The flower is also from Michelle's kit, I just added the button for dimension. I used this yummy Thicker for the sentiment.

My second card is a quick boy card. I adore those cute little robots! They are from Brandy Buffington's "Little Bots" kit. The blue background paper actually has a very fun and detailed circuit board pattern on it. All elements are from the Little Bots kit except for the sentiment. The sentiment stamp is from this set by Hero Arts. Here is a yummy free kit created by Brandy, don't forget to check it out!

That's it for now. Hope your long weekend is off to a wonderful start! =)

Thursday

Happy Thursday!! =) I have a card made using The Greeting Farm's Thursday to share with you!

I love the contrast of her attitude and the adorable cat hat she is wearing! LOL! I bet she collects cute stuff in her private life. =)

I used sketch #19 from Farm Fresh Friday to make my card. And I just found out that I missed the deadline... Duh! I had fun making this card though, so that's ok! =)

The patterned papers are once again from October Afternoon's yummy Fly A Kite collection. The pretty teal ribbon is from May Arts available at Practicing Creativity. The sentiment is from this fun set by Hero Arts.

Sweet Wonderful You

Hi all! Here is a little project that I made for this month's challenge over at the Hero Arts blog.

This month's challenge theme is "Birthdays, Dads & Grads".

I modified the gift holder from this post and made it a smaller one. The adorable girl is from the Sweet Wonderful You set. The patterned papers are from American Crafts' Dear Lizzy collection.

I had serious "card maker's block" when I was trying to come up with a card to go with this treat holder... In the end, I decided to use the same design as the treat holder. I stamped the brown paper with birthday sentiments from this set using PTI's vintage cream ink. The happy birthday speech bubble is from this set. I stamped it on white cardstock and colored the inside of the bubble to match the colors on the card. It came out ok. I think it would be perfect for a little girl's birthday or even party favor. What do you think?

That's all I have for today. Hope your day is fabulous! =)
