Girly cards

Some of my favorite rubber stamps are made by Penny Black, Stamping Bella, Saturated Canary and Totally Stampalicious – which unfortunately is no longer in business.  I thought I’d share some cards and tags I’ve made using the cute girly designs from those companies I love. These girls always seem to fit the sentiment that I’m looking to create. Some of these cards are old, some are new, some are one-of-a-kind, and some I mass-produced! Thanks for looking and make it a great day.

Happy gram!

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! happy gram

Jeepers Creepers

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!

More Catnip!

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!

Happy Trails

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!

Always Wear Your Invisible Crown!

We probably all have our own way of interpreting what “always wear your invisible crown” means. To me, it means that we can’t all wear sashes & crowns and be queens or princesses, but we can act like them and wear invisible crowns!  We can show it by maintaining self-confidence, by being aware of our own self-worth without flaunting it, and by being humble. Maybe it means that we should imagine our worth through different eyes so we can have a confidence that we have never experienced before. Whatever this quote means, I love the way it sounds and the way it makes me feel!  Hold your head high and have a glorious day!
