Smiles All Around

I'm playing along with the Your Next Stamp challenge #87 following the sketch AND color theme this time:

The cute animal images are from the YNS Box Full of Cuteness set that I colored with Letraset markers and fussy cut out. The layout was easily made with YNS stitched circle dies and papers from Woodlands, Hugs & Kisses, and Just for Fun 6x6 paper pads. I stamped the card base with the YNS Mini Heart Ink Splatter before gluing anything down. It helped fill in some of the blank spaces. I glued the animals down at fun angles, then added a sentiment from the YNS Smiley Happy Critter Crew Set One. To finish it off, I added some YNS gumdrops in matching colors.

Very cute, and a perfect card to send for any reason. Thank you for visiting!

House Mouse

I recently bought my first House Mouse stamp, this one is called hopeful mouse. He's so very cute. I quickly colored him with Copic markers, and fussy cut him out. This image is very small, so I decided to pair him up with a large tulip from a piece of 12x12 paper from Echo Park Happy Summer collection. I fussy cut the flower out, added a small strip for grass, and the sun is a sticker from the same collection. I had a Stampendous 'hello' sentiment stamped out, but didn't like the look of it anywhere on the card front, so I just left it without one.

I am joining in the Anything Goes/optional let's eat theme at House-Mouse Challenge blog, that I found recently through Annie.

Thanks so much for visiting!

Coffee Rush

I have missed quite a few of the Your Next Stamp's challenges. But I am happy to have found some time to make a quick card. I'm following the sketch this time for challenge #86:

The sentiment just makes me laugh! It comes from the YNS set What Not Sentiments One. The little go cup is from the YNS Ellie Loves Lattes set that I quickly colored with Spectrum's and fussy cut out. All the patterned paper is from the YNS Crazy for Coffee pad. I also added some YNS gumdrops as accents.

A cute and fun card for any coffee drinker(like me!) Thanks so much for having a look!

Magical Birthday

I decided to color with my Copic markers to get me back in the mood for crafting. It has been a few months since I picked up a marker, and decided to use this cute image from C.C. Designs called Nymph Lucy. I bought her awhile back, and am just now inking her up.

She is stamped onto Bristol 300 Series paper and die cut with a C.C. Designs die. Everything on this card except the paper and ink are from there. I have lots of their stuff :) I kept a simple design and did add some Wink of Stella to her wings and flowers for a bit of sparkle.

I have found a new challenge blog through Aletha, called Papercraft Business. They are on their 5th challenge, which is an anything goes theme, with the option of Birthday. It is a month long challenge, but I happened to come across them yesterday :)

Thank you for visiting today!
