Good morning friends! I'm so excited to be guest designing for Sweet November Stamps today.
Sweet Novemer Stamps is owned by Amy Young, an extremely talented lady that I'm lucky enough to call a friend. If you aren't familiar with Amy's work, please check out her shop. She has both clear stamps and digital stamps available. Also stop by her blog - I promise you will be blown away by her coloring skills! Today, Amy is releasing her new Flutterbee Digital Collection. There are four sweet, beautiful images in this collection and I chose to color Flutterbee Pepe. I printed the image on Neenah cardstock and colored the images, grass, and sky with copics. I used a stitched rectangle die to diecut the image and adhered it to a top-folding card. It's such a clean and simple card but I love the way it turned out.

Good morning friends! Today I'm sharing a slimline card featuring a stamp set from Paperie Ink's latest release!
These sweet bunnies, eggs, and painting accessories are from the new Happy Easter stamp set. There are lots of different bunnies to choose from to create some really cute Easter or spring scenes.
I made a slimline card measuring 3.5" x 8.5". I sponged Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink on bristol card and spattered it with white paint. I sponged Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide ink on a strip of bristol, spattered it with white and green paint, and diecut it with a grass die. I stamped all the images on Neenah cardstock, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics. I used a black glaze pen on the bunny and bird eyes and used a white gel pen to add polka dots to one of the eggs. I applied Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the paint in the cans and on the paintbrushes so they would look as though they are wet. I stamped the sentiment on my card and then adhered all the images with foam tape for some dimension.

Good morning friends! Today I'm sharing a slimline card featuring a stamp set from Paperie Ink's newest release!
These sweet ladybugs are from the new Bug For A Hug stamp set. There are so many different ladybugs to choose from, along with a few leaves and sentiments.
I decided to make a slimline card measuring 3.5" x 8.5" so I would have plenty of room to use a lot of the ladybugs. I stenciled clouds onto white cardstock and then adhered a diecut grassy slope for the grass. I diecut the window frame from black cardstock and adhered it with foam tape to my card. I stamped the ladybugs and leaves on Neenah cardstock, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics. I adhered all the images with foam tape for dimension. I used a black glaze pen on their eyes and also their polka-dots on their shells.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Good morning friends. I've been guest designing for Hello Bluebird Stamps and today I'm sharing my last card as a guest designer. This release includes lots of beautiful 6"x 6" background stamps and it's been so much fun creating cards with these stamps.
This background stamp is Mushroom House and I paired it with the Nextdoor Gnomes stamp set. I stamped the image on Neenah cardstock and colored it with copics. I stamped the gnomes, ladybug, and dragonfly on Neenah, colored them with copics, and then diecut them using the Nextdoor Gnomes Dies. I adhered the images onto my card using foam tape. This Mushroom House pairs perfectly with these cute gnomes but would work so well with lots of other Hello Bluebird stamp sets. I think the adorable fairies from the Fairy Garden Stamp set would look especially cute with this Mushroom House. I think I will have to give that a try real soon!

Good morning friends. Today is the final day of Hello Bluebird Stamps previews for their background stamp release. This release will be available in the Hello Bluebird shop tonight at 7pm MST. Be sure to stop by the Hello Bluebird Stamps Blog and leave a comment for a chance to win one of two $50 gift certificates.
This fun background stamp is "Simple Stripe" and I paired it with the Garden Friends stamp set. I stamped the stripes onto my card base and then I ran the Gallery Frame #1 Die through my diecut machine with white cardstock. I adhered the outer frame on my card with foam tape. Next, I colored the images with copics and diecut them using the Garden Friends Dies. I used a black glaze pen on the birds' eyes and applied Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen on the dragonfly wings. I adhered the images with foam tape. I used the Hello Friend Words Die to cut the "friend" sentiment from black cardstock three times and then adhered the layers together before adhering them to my card.
Birds - B02, B01, B000; E51, E50; R20, R00; Y19, Y15
