With Love

Hi everyone-
Sorry for the late posting... I thought, that I had already pre-scheduled my card to go live..ooops!!
That just goes to show you what kind of week it's been!!
This week at SweetStamps challenge is: HEARTS
So my card today, I am really played with my stamps.  I am using the two biggest birds in the "Tweethearts" stamp set.  I extended the legs on the one bird, so that his rump wouldn't be sitting on the grass.  I created my subtle cloud background using Broken China distress ink.  Then I stamped "Grassy Hill" and colored using Copics (YG97, 17, G14, 43).  Using a post it note, I covered the top part of the bird, and stamped just the legs.  I cleaned off the stamp really good, reinked just the body of the bird.  Then using a ruler and Memento Tuxedo marker, I connected the body to the feet!!
I fussy cut the next bird out and positioned it so it looks like it's giving a kiss, or rather a peck!! 
Really like the way it all came together and I hope that you do too. 
Thanks for stopping by today!!  See you soon.

I Love...

this new stamp! Hi!  Lisa here today and Happy Friday!  I'm playing along with the newest challenge here on the blog: Hearts...


This beautiful and intricate heart stamp is from one of the SweetStamps.com Clear Stamp Sets: Spring Time Doodles.  I started by die cutting my decorative circle and "smooshing" it in distress ink that I had watered down on my craft mat.  Next I stamped and heat embossed the heart image.  I tied some ribbon behind it and adhered it to some patterned paper.  I then added a large doily behind it for a little more texture and romantic feel.  Finally I stamped the sentiment in the right hand lower corner and added some pearls/rhinestones.

Supplies Used:



Thank you so much for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you make for our challenge!!!
Happy Crafting!

In the Pink

For the Sweet Stamps Hearts challenge, I made a Medallion card using an image with hearts in it- can you see the hearts- they are on 2 of the levels.
 There are hearts on the top layer, and little pink hearts peek out on the pink layer just between the white hearts on the top layer.
 I stamped the image 3 times- twice on the Silver Lustre cardstock and once on the pink shimmery cardstock. The cardstock is from Paper Temptress.  I fussy cut the three layers out, and stacked them using dimensionals.
 I used In the Pink ink to dab on color using the Victorian Romance stencil. I added a little more shimmer using the Stardust Gelly Roll pen. Pink Pearls finish off the medallion.

 Products I used from the SweetStamps store:


We hope you will join us for the challenge, and if you use a Sweet Stamps image, your card/project will count as two entries.

White on Gold


Here is a very easy card to create and would work perfect for wedding, Valentine's Day, anniversary or just a general card.

I embossed lines/frame with the Martha Stewart scorboard and a metal ball stylus, this also created a guide for the mask.
Paper was torn using the Perfect Tears from Perfect Paper Crafting and placed inside the embossed lines and secured.  I covered the open space with VersaMark, removed the mask and poured on the gold and heat embossed.
Using the same ink I stamped the flourish image and poured on the white powder and heated.  Did the same for the sentiment using the gold powder
Next I scattered the card with loose Aged White which is chunky pieces and applied heat from the bottom of the panel so it doesn't blow away and it's ready to mount to the base with foam tape.

I darkened this photo so you can better see the out of the box white embossing.

Images: SweetStamps - Decorative Elements, Live Laugh Love Roses (love)

Paper: Recollections heavy weight, DMD Inc. white mini groove
