Hello Spring

Good morning friends!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring a stamp set from Paperie Ink's latest release! 


These sweet bunnies are from the Hello Spring stamp set.  These bunnies seem to be having a bubble-blowing party!  There are lots of bunny stamps, along with bubbles, flowers and sentiments.


My card measures 3.5" x 8.5" so I cut a piece of bristol card that size and sponged it with Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks.  I spattered it with thinned white and blue acrylic paints and then adhered it to my card front.  I sponged Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks onto a strip of bristol card and diecut it using a grass die.  I spattered it with white and green acrylic paints and adhered it to my card using foam tape.  I sponged Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink on bristol board and diecut my letters with an alphabet die.


I stamped all the images, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics.  I applied Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the bubbles and bunny noses.  I adhered the bubbles and bumble bees to my card with liquid adhesive and adhered the bunnies and flowers with foam tape to add some dimension to my card.

Copics/Prismacolor Pencils:
Bunnies - W3, W1, W00;Prismacolor Warm Grey 70%; R20, R00

Sweet November Stamps - Flutterbee Digital Collection

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.

Eggciting Times

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.

I Just Wanted To Bug You

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!

Hello Bluebird Stamps - Mushroom House

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!

Copics Used:

Mushroom House - E43, E42, E41, E40; B32, R29, R27, R24
