With A Cherry On Top

Happy Tuesday! Today I used Cupcake Kitty from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps to make this cute birthday card. I used card stock I had. I don't know if you can see in my scan, but the pattern paper has lots of glitter. I punched a boarder with red card stock and the pink card stock is shimmery. The image is colored with Copic Markers and the saying is a stamp I had.

Hope you all have a cherry day!

November 1st!!!

Hope you all had a safe and fun Halloween! On to November! I made this little card using 2 Cute Rubber Stamp's Image, Bear Cub Friends. I thought is was a great image to make a little note card to send to my friends who loving camping and the outdoors.

I printed the image, colored with Copic Markers and then tore the edges towards me to get the ripped edge. I then inked the edge with a sponge and ink to match the background color. I think it makes an interesting effect.

Have a wonderful rest of your week and keep on creating!

Tuesday Inspiration 10/4/11

Hello and happy Tuesday! October is my all time favorite month of the year. The colors of the leaves are changing and it is so beautiful what nature can do! The colors I used on my card are inspired by some of the colors I have been seeing.

This image, Penguin Doodle, from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps was so fun to play with! You could stamp any sentiment and it looks like
the penguin is writing it. A great image for anybody! I have embossed the background of the card with dots for texture. I also used my C1 Copic marker to outline the image. This helps make it pop.

Don't forget 2 Cute has extended their stamp sale until Friday the 8th. Be sure to stop by here and get yours now!

Have a wonderful day and Happy Stamping!

Tuesday Inspiration 9/20/11

Hello Tuesday. This image is called Cat-Knit from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. You can purchase it here. I don't knit, but I crochet and I LOVE cats so this image is perfect for me.

I made this card using pale yellows and grays. Shhh, don't tell, but I designed this card and will make some more, for my friends who are crocheting or knitting a blanket for a local charity "Wings". Wings is going to use our crafts as holiday gifts for some of the women and children they help. So far I have made one blanket and hope to make some scarves/hats as well. I want to thank my friends "for making a difference" by taking the time to such a worthwhile charity.

Why don't you make a card or have a kind word for someone who can use it today. It's fun, easy and could mean so much to someone who needs a lift. Happy Stamping.

School Challenge from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps 9/6/11

I made this easel note pad holder for 2 Cute Rubber Stamp's Back To School Challenge. Kindergarden Turtle is one of the new image releases from 2 Cute. He is so cute! I got the sticky note holder idea from Rita Kegg's blog. What a fun way to make a decoration for a note holder. Would be so cute for a teacher's desk. I colored him with Copic Markers and popped him out with pop dots.

Hop on over to 2 Cute's School Challenge, join in and you could win some free images!

Tuesday Inspiration 9/6/11

Hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day weekend.

For my Tuesday Inspiration card today, I used 2 Cute Rubber Stamp image, Turtle Sundae.
I added some punched flowers with green brads to girly it up. You can easily make this image masculine too just by changing your color choices and not adding flowers. I colored it with Copic Markers and texturized the green card stock
piece behind her. I wish that sundae was real! Yummy. A pretty simple card, yet with added layers of color.

You can go here to purchase your Turtle Sunday image. If you would like to purchase this or any other card of mine, email or leave me a message. Happy Tuesday!

It's always nice to say "way to go" to your kids or someone in your life who has done something special. I made this card for just that occasion. Image from 2 Cute Stamps. This image would work fantastically for the 4th of July Celebrations also!

I put red rhinestones in the center of the sparklers for a little bling.

Arctic Polar Bear & Penguin

Isn't this image too cute? I love it from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. I destressed the card by using a very fine sanding block on the white core navy blue card stock. Used my Copics to color. The "waves" card stock actually comes from a Scouting paper pack. I thought it went well with the image. Thanks for looking at my first posting on my second blog! Check out my other blog at -
