Wee Stamps "Sweetie" with Quick Creations :)

Have I ever told you how much I love Wee Stamps?  I probably have but just in case I haven' you go...I LOVE Wee Stamps!  Sylvia Zet just pulls at my heart strings when she comes out with these sweet sweet images.

For Quick Creations this week, I have some inspiration using the newer image "Sweetie" from Whimsy Stamps/Wee Stamps.

Isn't she just the sweetest "Sweetie" ever?????

I created this card using paper from the Simple Stories "Enchanted" collection, some bling and flowers from my stash, and a sentiment from the CC Designs/Amy R "Winged Greetings" sentiment stamp set.  This stamp set is unfortunately discontinued...the sentiments are really nice, but, but, but...Noelle has ONE left!.

You can find the linked products in Noelle Martin's online shop at Quick Creations.  You'll really like dealing with Noelle, great customer service!

See you soon, and just a heads up...I'll have some more Wee Stamps inspiration coming this summer ;)

Two-Sheet Wonder with Crafty Ribbons

What do you do when your mojo has taken a hike?  When he has suddenly gone on a vacation without you?  I'm pretty sure mine has been sunning himself on a nice warm beach somewhere while I am here at home trying to create without him...the nerve.

Well, when I am mojo-less, I do one of three things.  I learn something new, I CASE someone's creation (giving them credit of course!), or I create a batch of cards using the one-sheet wonder technique...or in this case, a two-sheet wonder!

WARNING...this post is very picture heavy, sorry :)  With just two sheet of gorgeous patterned paper, I created 16 cards lol.  And then I adorned them with some luscious Crafty Ribbons to make them just perfect :)  I  am showing you half of the cards here, and for the other 8 you'll have to visit the Crafty Ribbons inspiration blog here :)  Sneaky right? Lol.

I had a TON of fun creating all 16 of these cards.  So much fun, in fact, that I have another 14 in the works lol, this time with only one sheet of patterned paper, lol.

To embellish these cards, I used many different ribbons and some lace from Crafty Ribbons which I will list below.

Vintage Butterflies-English CremeVintage Butterflies-Bikes CremeVintage Butterflies-French Creme,

Vintage Butterflies-English LatteVintage Butterflies-Bikes LatteVintage Butterflies-Keys Latte,

Vintage Butterflies-French Latte, Vintage Butterflies-Bikes Cream, Vintage Butterflies-Birds Creme,

Volcan Viscose Lace Creme and Chantilly Cotton Lace in, that was a mouth full!

So now that you have seen these eight cards, don't forget to go over to the Crafty Ribbons blog and see the other eight!

Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Buttons!

Hello everyone, I have some fun inspiration for you today, for the Crafty Ribbons Challenge this week.  The theme is buttons, and I have created two cute tea bag holder thank yous for you.

I created these after watching video on Youtube by My Sister's Scrapper and they are so much fun to make and also make a great gift :)

To create these Teabag holders I used some awesome ribbon from Crafty Ribbons:

Swiss Dots, Animal Cuties-Ladybirds, and Vintage Butterflies.

Some lovely ribbon to add to a lovely thank you gift.

You can find these ribbons and more in the Crafty Ribbons online shop.  Stop by and join in for the challenge this month, and don't forget to add a button!

Elegant Roses with Sweet Stamps

I have a great card for you today featuring the Elegant Roses stamp from Sweet stamps :)

I create this card by coloring the roses with my Copics and Prismacolor Pencils.  Then I clear embossed the Sketched Floral Borders stamps in clear embossing powder, and finally, I stamped the sentiment using the Framed Handwritten Words stamp set.

I really like how this card turned out, and it showcases the roses so well I think.  Flowers are fast becoming my favorite images to color...I love how real you can make them look!

You can find all of the linked products in the Sweet Stamps online shop :)  See you soon!

I'm a little about you?

Haha, do you like the title?  I'm feeling a little odd today, since I have created a card using the super sweet "Renew" clear stamp from Some Odd Girl :)  Noelle Martin over at Quick Creations asked me to create with this stamp, and she is so cute!

It's a great spring image to play with, don't you think?

I colored her with my Copics and Prismacolor Pencils, and completed the card using paper from the Doodlebug Designs "Spring Garden" collection, and some flowers and bling from my stash :)  The sentiment is from Avery Elle, and the circle border stamp is from Catherine Poolers SOA collection :)  I used a sketch for this card too, which you can find here :)

You can find the linked products in Noelle's online store at Quick Creations, but you should definitely hurry, cuz I have a sneaking suspicion that this stamp won't be in the shop for long...she's just too sweet!

Many Thanks with Sweet Stamps

Hello everyone, I am here with some Sweet Stamps inspiration for you this week.  I have created two variations of the same card, using some molding paste, Gelatos, ribbon and some fun Sweet Stamp products which I have linked below :)

I made the one on the right first, using the Splish Splash stencil, the French Script Artsy Fartsy stamp, and a sentiment from the Framed Handwritten Words stamp set.  These were fun cards to make, and I had a great time playing with the molding paste and Gelatos!  The only difference between the two cards, aside from the ribbon, is that I colored the white cardstock with gelato before I stamped on with the card on the left.  Otherwise, these cards were made the exact same way.

I have decided that my theme for this month will be mixed media, so stay tuned for some more messy colorful fun using Sweet Stamps products!

Come back soon, for more fun and inspiration with Sweet Stamps!
