I started this card by using Eat Cake Graphics rubber stamp called “Penelope and kitty Percy”. After stamping, I colored and cut out the image and added a banner flying behind the fish. The rubber stamp used for the banner is made by Hero Arts. I had some 6×6 paper with little fluffy clouds and sunshine that I used for the background. I attached the stamped images with foam dots for dimension. To finish it off, I added some Star Dust Stickles to the fish fins, put some liquid glass on Penelope’s eye glasses, and added a couple of blings on the banner. Hope you have a Happy New Year!
Here is my latest design team project for Eat Cake Graphics. When I first saw this haunted house stamp, I wanted to color the “stripes” on the house the colors of a candy corn…but I decided to go with a violet color instead. It was a simple card, I just stamped, embossed, colored, matted, and attached with pop dots to a card base. I added an orange moon above the roof by punching out a 1″ circle and using the negative paper as a moon “template”. A sponge was used to swirl in the ink color inside the circle. I have a sentiment stamp “Jeepers Creepers” that I think fits the card perfectly. I stamped the sentiment, cut it to size and stapled it on. Stardust Stickles was added for a little bling on the rooftop. And there you have it!
This project was pretty simple to make. I found the clipboard frame on clearance at Michael’s (for less than a buck!) and thought it was really cute, so it became my inspiration. I love this cute little kitty stamp, since I am a cat lover. The background colors on the board of red and dark mint really drew me in, so I used complementary Copic marker colors on the kitty. After stamping and embossing the kitty, I cropped the paper to a square and corner rounded the top corners. I popped dotted it to the colored paper background. I stamped and hand cut the sentiment, attached it with glue, tied some twine on it and just clipped it on the board. A little bling was added to the collar for some sparkle, and that was it!

Someday I will learn how to wrap presents with pretty wrapping paper, but in the meantime, I’m sticking to putting goodies in gift bags. I stamped the bag with a stamp from Eat Cake Graphics called “Shoreline”. I used My Favorite Things hybrid ink pad in black licorice and colored in with Copic Markers. I love layering colors with Copics, as you can see in the greens in the trees. Star Dust Stickles were used to make the snow cap on the top of the mountain sparkly. A punched out tag with “Happy Trails” stamped on it was pop-dotted and added on for dimension. Happy trails to you this Labor Day weekend!
This little ladybug stamp measures only 0.4 x 0.5 inches. I made the postcard below stamping the bug once, while the other picture is a card made stamping the bug multiple times. The postcard features a little branch with some tiny paper flowers and the cute little ladybug. The card with the red flowery print reminds me of an easy, breezy summer. l randomly stamped the ladybug on Stampin Up Whisper White cardstock, colored her in, then used a circle punch. I layered the circle with foam dots to a larger punched circle for some added dimension. To sum it all up, I used the sentiment “Happy Everything”! Have a great day.

When I saw it online at eatcakegraphics.com I knew I had to have it. This rubber stamp has to be one of the smallest stamps I own. With that being said, its size presents a design challenge for me. Should I figure out a design using it in combination with other stamps – perhaps next to a flower or a tree branch? Or, do I stamp it multiple times so that there are lots of ladybugs in the project? Stay tuned to see what I come up with!
“Mr. Who” is the name of this cute little owl stamp and I just love him. I have quite a few cute (and cheesy) sentiments that I could have used with this image on a card, like “Owl always love you” or “Whoo-la-la” but I decided to make something other than a card. I stamped Mr. Who with brown ink and colored in using layers of a pink Copic marker so the image would coordinate with the small pink bag. The same brown ink was used to stamp the branch. To decorate the paper bag, I started by attaching a piece of triangle-shaped burlap, using lagoon colored bakers twine to attach. Using large and small scalloped circle punches, I punched out background paper to layer with. I used foam tape to attach the scalloped circles and tree branch with, just to add dimension. For embellishments, I used burlap flowers from Hobby Lobby and Prima paper flowers from my stash. Of course I added a little bit of bling to the flowers, since it’s a challenge for me to just leave things like that as they are. Hope you have a hoot of a day!
