Hip Hip Hooray

Hi Everyone! 
As I promissed I am back with another eye candy for you. This is a pretty simple card, but I just LOVE how it turned out. The image is from Mama Elephant and the sentiment from Avery Elle. 
I stamped the image using desert sand mememnto ink and did some no line coloring with copics, then I die cut the image. Added some doily and patterned paper strips on my card base, and then adhered the image and added some sequins. And Voila :)

Cozy Christmas

Hi Stampers! 
Happy Monday! Today I have a very simple card to share with you. We made the card candy during Convention, so when I got home I just adhered it to Very Vanilla card base.
The stamp set used is Cozy Christmas and the dsp is Home for Christmas, along with a button and ribbon from the same collection "Home for Christmas"
 hint: the Santa image is cut out from one of the sheets from the dsp

Hi stampers! 
I am back today with another creation for you. I know two days in a row. I am trying to do better with editing my pictures and scheduling my posts ahead of time :).
For this card I used the Hydrangeas stamp from Lili of the Valley and colored my image with my Chameleon Deluxe set pens.I used only 5 pens to color the whole image! 
I used some of the Dress shoppe paper from Lili of the Valley for my background. 

Note: The registration for my Home for Christmas stamp-a-stack by mail is closing soon.

Skipping Stones Designs Stamp and Share challenge

Hi Stampers! 
This my 2nd post for today, so for the coffee lovers blog hop project scroll down. 
But today is the last Friday of the month, and that means it's time for the Stamp and Share challenge by Skipping stones design. 
For the challenge we have the picture below. 
I took the colors off the picture to create my card using the Victorian Summer stamp set, which is one of my favorite stamp sets

For my card I stamped the flower image and the sentiment and then die cut the panel. I stamped the butterfly on another piece of card stock and cut it out. I adhered it then to my image panel and added come sequins. Then I adhered it to the scalloped panel and adhered to my card base. I added some Wink of Stella onto the butterfly to jazz it up a little.
Now scroll down to see the list of all the participants of the blog hop and hop on over there and leave them some love, because they have some wonderful creations for you.

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi stampers! 
Happy Friday! 
I am so sorry I was so quiet this past week. Work has been so busy that I didn't have time to post anything, though I was creating. After hours and hours in front of the computer during the day, I couldn't sit more to write up posts or edit pictures. And today I have not one, but two blog posts for you. 
Today marks the start of the Coffee Lovers Fall blog hop and Skipping Stones Designs is one of the sponsors. 
So, for my card I used the Funny Coffee stamp set from Skipping stones design. Stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo black and colored with my copics, then I cut it out. I used some Lawn Fawn dsp for the strip on the side.

Scroll down  to see all the SSD  design team members participating in this hop and to hop on over to their blogs :)

Skipping Stones Design blog hop

Hi stampers! 
Welcome to the first Skipping Stones Design Tip/Technique blog hop! I am so excited to be hopping over the other team member's blogs and seeing all the wonderful creations and tips and techniques. 
If you started the blog hop from the Skipping Stones Design blog, then you probably ended up here from Anja's blog and her wonderful project. 
I have another project to share with you, for my card I used the Heartfelt stamp set and did watercolor wash background. This technique is pretty easy, all you need it watercolor brush, watercolor paper, heat gun and some watercolors. For mine I used Kuretake watercolors.
I taped my watercolor paper with Frog tape to my working surface and applied generous amount of water using 1 1/2" watercolor wash paint brush. Then using smaller round brush I applied the colors and let them run into each other, then using my heat gun I dried the background. Then using small brush and some more watercolors I did some splatters and let it dry. When it was completely dry I stamped my image and sentiment and embossed it with white embossing powder and then added the sequins and the ribbon. Lastly I adhered my panel onto my card base ;)

Versatile Christmas

Hi stampers!
Happy Friday! 
I have pretty simple card for you today with minimal stamping. I used one of the new pretty designer papers from the Stampin' Up! new Holiday catalog called Cozy Christmas. There are two sheets filled with these cute little deer. I cut out two of them! 
I cut my card base from Very Vanilla card stock and then I die cut the bottom of the front side using an non-SU! die. On the back I adhered some dsp and then a little thin strip on the front. After that I stamped the sentiment from Versatile Christmas set in Real red, adhered the deer with dimensionals and added the snowflake. 
I really like how it turned out!
