Kitty with Latte' ...

Good morning! Today I have another adorable Thank You card inspired by the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #318 ~ A Sketch to share with you featuring stamps from Great Impressions Stamps.


I love coffee images even though I'm not a coffee drinker. That being said, I really had to create a card featuring the adorable Kitty with Latte'. Copic Markers were used to color this adorable Kitty. I embossed some cream cardstock for the background, and since school is in session I used apple design paper for my design.

I added the Latte' Sentiment to the inside of my card, and included the apple design paper.

Greetings from ...

Good afternoon! I'm back again today with another Halloween card featuring an adorable stamp set from Rubbernecker Stamps!


This adorable pumpkin is one of four images available in the Halloween Set 3 (475). The set also comes with a total of 10 different sentiments that coordinate with the adorable images.

I colored the adorable pumpkin with Copic Markers, cut out the image with a pierced rectangle die, and applied Tim Holtz Distress Inks with a double to add the grass and sky. I created the background using Whimsy Stamps Fright Night DP that I picked up last year. Using 3D Foam Tape I added my pumpkin, and one of the sentiments available in the set. Final step was to add the orange rhinestones to his jester shoes.

Happy Halloween ...

Good afternoon! I'm back again today with another Halloween card featuring stamps from Rubbernecker Stamps!


I pulled out the Sleepy Hollow Tree (590) and Pirate Scarecrow (932), stamped them on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and colored part of the scarecrow. To create the moon I cut out a 1" circle mask and applied a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Ink over the entire design to create the night background. After removing the circle mask, I colored in the moon. I stamped an extra Pirate Scarecrow (932) and colored it with my Copic Markers, fussy cut it out, and layered it onto my background using thin & thick 3D Foam Squares.

Too add extra dimension to my design, I add a MFT Stitched Rectangular Scallop Frame over my design with 3D Foam Tape. Once done, I put the panel on my card. I then noticed that the pumpkin was hidden under the Scalloped Frame so I stamped the pumpkin part of the Pirate Scarecrow (932) again, colored and cut it out to add to my design.

The final step was to add a sentiment. I stamped the Happy Halloween Sentiment (931) on Vellum with Staz-On Jet Black Ink, cut it down, and tucked it under the side of my frame.

Here's a closer look at the cool Pirate Scarecrow (932) ...

May the joy of the very first Christmas ...

Good afternoon! Today I'm sharing a Christmas card featuring stamps from the NEW Release of Holiday Stamps over at Rubbernecker Stamps!


This is one of many adorable snowman in the New Release called Snowman with Present (963-03). I love snowman,  and I couldn't resist creating a card this with guy. He was colored with Copic Markers, and I used a white Gelly Roll Pen to add dots to the present.

My design was inspired by the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #311 (Sketch). I took creative license and changed it up a bit (sketch is shown at the bottom of my post).

Once all of the pieces were layered on my card I added Crystal Stickles to the image, and added some Queen & Co. Bling for the buttons on his belly. I also added some at the top and bottom of my card. The final step was to add the Very First Christmas sentiment (983-01).

Here's a closer look at the adorable Snowman with Present ...

Everything was fine til ...

Good afternoon! Halloween is fast approaching. All you have to do is walk in a store around my neighborhood to see that they all have their Halloween stuff out already, so I created a Halloween card featuring stamps from Rubbernecker Stamps!


I pulled out this cool Sleepy Hollow Tree (590) and Witch Silhouette (938), inked them up with Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink on RN Watercolor Paper. I cut out a circle and masked off the moon, pulled out the Ken Oliver Color Burst Brights, and added some of the Violet Color Burst into a Ranger Mini Mister filled with water.  I sprayed over the whole panel with the the violet color burst. Once the panel is dry, I pulled off the circle and used more of the Ken Oliver Color Burst Brights to color in the moon I created. I cut down the panel and layered it on black cardstock.

I pulled this cool sentiment from the Halloween Set 3 (475), stamped it on RN Watercolor Paper, with Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink, added some Ken Oliver Color Burst Brights color under the sentiment, and cut it out with my MFT Hz Stitched Strip Die. I score the strip on the right side of the sentiment, and layered it over my panel. Once done, I used 3D Tape to add it to my card.
