Sweet and Simple Yippee Skippee

Yippee Skippee This was a card that we did for Stamp Camp a while back.  The washi tape is so great for quick and simple cards. All we did for this one was stamp the sentiment and add a strip of washi tape from the Ghingham Garden trio. The cupcakes were made using the Cupcake Builder punch. The cupcake tops are embossed and I trimmed a little piece from an Espresso cherry to create the chocolate dipped cherry. The Espresso cupcake bottom was crimped and the other was covered with the same washi tape. The Early Espresso bakers twine finishes it off nicely. Originally, I was going to put the cupcakes on another layer, but I liked the clean and simple look of just popping them up on the card base. An easy card and lots of fun to put together. Thanks for stopping by today!

Timeless Talk in Black and White

timeless talk Here is a card we did for workshops last fall. Timeless Talk is one of my very favorite, and one of the most popular sets from the current catalog. I love that the style is contemporary and vintage at the same time. I decided to use the Modern Medley DSP which is perfect for the Black and White color technique, even though the paper is black and vanilla. Close enough. The technique is simple enough. Design something using only the colors Black and White. It makes stunning cards. Stamp something happy today!!

Animal Talk Valentine

Animal Talk These aren't traditional colors, but this set makes the cutest valentines! Especially when paired with these sweet little hearts from the retired Sweet Shop DSP. I stocked up on this fave DSP while it was on the Clearance Rack, so it will show up for some time still in my creations. I used markers to color the stamp. I stamped an extra bird and popped it up over the first. The sentiments for this set are really cute (click the link in the table below to take a peek). It is very easy to change them up, making this set very versatile; by just stamping or printing something different on a separate strip of paper and then popping it up over the part you want to replace. Sweet stuff. Thanks for looking!

What Does the Fox Say?

life in the forest life in the forest I have to admit that I bought this set, just so I could make a "What does the fox say?" card for my grandbaby. The set isn't my style so much, but I NEEDED that fox! The rest of the critters are growing on me though, and I have thought of several other cute card ideas already. This had to be the valentine for Aubrey this year though, because she LOVES the song and plays it over and over. I downloaded it to her little tablet that she got for Christmas, so I wouldn't have to listen to it any more!! If you don't know what I am talking about, just google "What does the fox say?" and watch the video. A spoof gone viral. Way beyond viral, actually. Just basic stamping here, and I used blender pens and ink pads to color in the fox and trees. Aubrey, who is in pre-k this year, pointed out that I needed to color more carefully and try to stay inside the lines. I tried to explain that it was a watercolor method which gives the artist creative license to go outside the lines on occasion and that it actually lends itself to the fluid, unconfined nature of the technique. Or something like that. She interrupted me mid explanation with an impatient pat on the hand and said "It's OK Nana, just try to do better next time." Ah, Mrs. Roy..... grasshopper has learned well. I felt like giving myself a punch on my behavior ticket and putting myself down for a nap. I am pretty sure she's not going to buy my story of artistic intent on the over spray of smooch spritz inside the card either, but I have learned my lesson. That's my story and I am sticking to it. Aren't the Word Bubble framelits a HOOT though!??! I love them and I think they will be used A LOT. Scrapbook pages, cards, This and That. So many fun ideas. I hope you get to stamp today!!
