Bear in a Box


I'm playing along with the Your Next Stamp challenge following their sketch:


I've used the YNS stamp set called Box Full of Cuteness, and it really is cute! I've used the bear in the box and colored it with my Tombow markers, and fussy cut him out, then popped him up into the box.

The papers are from the YNS For the Boys paper pad, and I added some of their enamel gumdrops as well. I have some other ideas for this set, without using the box. Now to just find some more time to play.

Thank you you for visiting!

Neutrals Journal Page


Today's journal page was inspired by the Double D challenge this time, which is Neutrals with Texture:


Lots of layers were added to this page, crumpled paper, embossed paper, punched flowers, die cut butterflies, ribbon, raffia, buttons, and a mini paper clip. The butterflies are a Stampin' Up! framelit die, and I used vanilla card stock on them, and chose to sponge just one.

The sentiment/quote is from the Unity August kit of the month, and was die cut with a retired C.C. Designs die. I like how this turned out, and another page done in my personal journal(which is an old microwave cookbook).

Thank you so much for having a look!

Snoopy Punch Art


I saw this cute snoopy punch art on Pinterest quite awhile ago, and am just now getting around to making one. I haven't made any punch art for a long time, so I browsed my Pinterest board for inspiration.

Snoopy is very easy to make, just two oval and two circle punches, a scrap of white for his legs and a scrap of black for his collar. I drew on the eye, mouth and claws. All punches I used are from Stampin' Up!, some have been retired.

I used a grass border die from Your Next Stamp for the background. The dog house was made by embossing two pieces of red card with two different folders. I hand cut the roof angles, and punched a black circle for the door. It was fairly quick to put together, and perfect for any Peanuts or Snoopy fan.

Thanks so much for your visit!

Ice Cream


Ice Cream in Summer is the perfect treat, no matter which flavor you choose! These cute images are one stamp from a Unity kit of the month. Instead of coloring them all in, I went with a soft background for each using Distress Oxide ink.(which is becoming a favorite of mine!)

After the piece was all dry, I die cut it and the background layer with my C.C. Designs dies. The sentiment was a free gift with purchase stamp from Unity. It goes perfectly with these ice cream images. I punched it out with a Stampin' Up! tag punch and added a few enamel dots.

I made this card for a friend because she really is much cooler than me! :) 

Thank you for having a look!

Tags for a Friend


I'm joining the monthly challenge at Joy Clair, where they always have and Anything Goes theme. Their DT is sharing 'some of my favorites', so I'm using some of my favorite stamp sets from Joy Clair.

The sweet girl is from the Let's Celebrate set. It's a birthday themed set, with cute balloons, sentiments, and fun accent images. I only used the Girl on this card. I colored her with my Tombow markers onto Bristol 300 series paper. I chose some girly papers from C.C. Designs along with their tags dies. I just layered them up and stamped the sentiment from the Joy Clair Bandana Bits onto another small tag and added some pretty ribbon to it.

I also added a few enamel dots for accents. A perfect card to send to just say Hi. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Patterns and Color


Sharing a card I made for the Paper Smooches July challenge, which is Anything Goes.

I stamped and colored the flowers from the PS Best Buds set with various alcohol markers. I fussy cut them all out, and used the PS Crystal Clear 1 jar die to put them in. I chose this swirly paper for the jar, and it wasn't until I had everything put together that I thought it's kind of funky looking. Bright colors, and bold patterns in the paper and washi tapes at the bottom, just doesn't appeal to my style. But it is what it is!

I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely Thoughts set with Oxide ink, matching the flowers as closely as I could to try and tie it together.

Thanks for visiting!

Pop of Color


The new challenge at Double D's is Black and White with a pop of color:

I decided to join in and use this retired paper from Stampin' Up! that I've been hoarding :) It's so pretty, and lends itself to be colored in or not. So, following the them, I colored the roses with my new Copic set. I also added just a few hints of green by just tracing the outline of the leaves and vines.

The sentiment is also retired from a Stampin' Up! stamp set, but goes perfectly with this card. No embellishments is needed, the roses are all the focus.

Thank you for having a look!
