Sunshine and Rainbows

It's CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit)the Designer week over at Global Design Project and these two cards are filled with so much beautiful inspiration! These cards were created by the creators of the Global Design Project much talent between these two artists!

I had some fun mixing patterns for my CASE. Take a look!

I pulled a couple of fun patterns from the Delightfully Eclectic DSP and paired it up with the adorable Just My Type Stamp set.  I had to add in the Rays of Light background stamp to go along with the sunshine and rainbows sentiment!

It's always so much fun mixing and matching patterns of DSP.  The Delightfully Eclectic DSP is FULL of so many fun patterns...the creative possibilities are endless! You can snag this mega pack of DSP for 15% through June 30th...don't miss out!

Happy Stamping!

Just Swinging By

There isn't anything much cuter than these cheeky little monkey's in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog.  And the fact that there is a coordinating punch for one of the monkey's and a banana makes it even cuter!
This month's Creative Challenge at Stampin' Up! is to find fun ways to use the Light, Medium and Deep Natural Tones Stampin' Blends.  What better way to use them than on these adorable little jungle critters!

In addition to all of the fun coloring, some Lemon Lolly bananas were stamped on the card base and a couple Zoo Crew DSP bits of paper tied the whole zoo theme together.  (You can snag the Zoo Crew for 15% off until June 30th...don't miss it!)  No embellishments needed when you have all this cuteness to steal the show!

Happy Stamping!

Seaside Birthday Wishes


This weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge certainly has a summer feel to it! Sandy starfish, cool ice cream treats, a beautiful pitcher of a refreshing drink or grapes that are perfect for many fun and inspiring options!

I opted for the cute seashells from Circle Sayings and paired them up with {Sun}Rays of Light for a cheerful, summer-at-the-beach birthday card!  I colored the seashells in a variety of beach inspired colors that left me longing for some time at my favorite ocean town.

A distressed layer of Boho Blue embossed with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder gave the card a little ocean waves feel went under the Lemon Lolly sun rays. A Crumb Cake Card base ties the whole beach theme together...sun, water and sand!

A bit of Boho Blue Texture Ribbon and a few Boho Blue In Color dots finished the card off.  It's such a happy card!

Happy Stamping!

Share a Cupcake

Woohoo, we made it to Friday and you know what that means! A new TGIF Challenges Inspiration Challenge!

This WAS a challenge for me because I own ZERO stamps with cupcakes! But that's  the beauty of a challenge yourself!  

How about turning a milkshake into a cupcake?!?  That's what I did!  Cutting the bottom off of the milkshake glass and adding some fluffy frosting, I turned a milkshake into a cupcake!

I went with the same colors in the photo and ended up with a color combo that reminds me of Neapolitan ice cream.  I used the waffle cone die to create some sprinkles and added some fun texture with the 3D Basics embossing folder.

Biggest Wish came out for a sweet sentiment to finish things off.  I love layering the fonts with this stamp set!

What will you be inspired to create today?

Happy Stamping!

Fresh (as a) Daisy Friendship


The Monday Montage crew is back with an all new hop for all of you to enjoy!  No matter where you start, be sure to hop on all the way through so you don't miss a single amazing creation by this talented group of stampers!

I'll be honest, I was not drawn to the Fresh as a Daisy Suite at first.  But over time it has grown on me and now that I've had the opportunity to create a few projects with it, I love it!

I selected this beautiful pattern of Fresh As a Daisy DSP and fussy cut around the tops of the beautiful white daisies.  I added some texture with one of the awesome Basics 3D embossing folders to go behind the fussy cut DSP.
Next came some cheerful die-cut Daisies, layered to add a little more fluff to the flowers!  I pulled out the Copper Clay ink pad for the first time for the sentiment...the only stamping required for this card!  A few Boho Blue In Color Dots and a Boho Blue Textured Ribbon finished the card off.

Now it's on to the next stop of the hop!
Happy Stamping!

Great Guy Gone Fishing

Welcome to the latest Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge!  This is such a fun and versatile sketch...I can't wait to see what everyone is inspired to create!

Father's Day is coming up this weekend and this sketch was perfect to showcase some of the amazing Let's Go Fishing DSP!
Three of the layers were cut from various patterns of DSP...which one is your favorite?!?  A little texture was added by embossing a piece of Wild Wheat with the Twisted Rope 3D embossing folder.

More DSP was brought in with the fussy cult salmon and fishing pole. I love all of the different fish that are included in this pack of designer paper!

When you have such amazing DSP, you don't always need a lot stamped images.  All this card needed was a fly and a sentiment.  I opted for To a Great Guy from Wildlife Wonder, leaving the inside for a Father's Day sentiment.

Thanks for dropping by today!  

Happy Stamping!

Just My Type

Hi, hello and happy Friday!  Welcome to this week's TGIF Challenges Sketch Challenge!  There is nothing better than a good sketch to help get the creativity flowing!

Just My Type stamp set recently joined my collection and it is certainly one that will be well loved!  There is something about an old typewriter that I just love!

I went with bright and cheerful colors to play along with the sketch.  A Coastal Cabana typewriter with a Lemon Lime Twist Plant and Melon Mambo much fun!  And when you add in some Crushed Curry polka dot Delightfully Eclectic DSP, it's even better!

Just a touch of texture was added with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder...goes along with the typewriter perfectly!

How cute is the little Hello?  I pulled an old retired itty bitty circle punch from my stash to punch all of the letters out. I love the little extra pop of black.

I hope you'll join along in the fun this week and share your project with us!

Happy Stamping!

Congrats, You Did It!


Graduation season is in full swing and our calendar is full of grad parties! I have a fun grad card to share for this weeks Monday Montage Blog Hop!

If you've followed along with me for a bit, you'll know that the little graduation caps are my favorite embellishment to add to any grad card.  Adding one to a Beautiful Balloons ballon is so much fun!
A few silver foil stars and tassel, along with some Blueberry Bushel confetti went hand in hand with the Congrats sentiment from Phrases for All.  You Did It was the perfect final touch!

Be sure to keep on hopping to see what the rest of our design team has in store!

Happy Stamping!
