Happy Birthday Card

This card features some of my favorite Bo-Bunny papers.  The small floral design on the pink background is actually the card.  You can flip it up to write your message inside.  The white border was made using the shell design punch by Martha Stewart.    The greeting is one from Hero Arts.  Add some bling and you're ready to spread some birthday cheer! :)

Vintage Hero Arts

This sweet stamp is one of the newer vintage style stamps from Hero Arts.  As I said before, I have LOTS of favorite companies.  It's hard to choosse just one favorite!  I stamped this girl twice, once for the body (on white paper) and the 2nd (on patterned paper) for her outfit.  Then I cut out her dress.  I added some rickrack, ribbon, twine and buttons to complete the vintage feel of the card.  I just love all these old time images!

Bo-Bunny Stair Step Card!

Here's a stair step card I made for the MPTS card design team using some of the new Bo-Bunny papers and stickers.  I just love the black/pink/turqouise combination.  I think bright and cheerful! :)

Christmas in July!

Happy Tuesday!
I just posted this album over on the blog More Paper Than Shoes for a holiday challenge.  I'm on their Creative Card Team  and they have tons of creativity going on over there so please check them out!

Since  I love Christmas and love any excuse to create for the holidays I thought I would share this acrylic album with you too!  I made it a few years ago for a class.  These types of albums can be tricky because you can see through to both sides.  You just need to do a little planning first.  I used several stamps with Staz-On to get an image that would work on the acrylic. Then I colored in the images with a little stickles, added some patterned papers, and embellished with tons of ribbon!

Fun New Stamp!

Okay, I admit that I love stamps and I'm a sucker for cute little characters like this sweet girl!  I stamped her, then colored with Copics and added some Spica for shine.  I pop dotted some of her polka dots for dimension.  She is just precious!

New Ippity Stamps!

I created this card with one of the new Ippity Stamps from Unity Stamps.  I love all of the great details of the beautiful flower stamp and the little butterfly is the perfect detail.  I also used the great papers from October Afternoon.

This lovely card reminds me of a summer time swim!  I colored the stamped image with Copics and added Stickles for some shine.  Here's hoping we all get to enjoy the water this summer! :)

Flower Power

This lovely flower stamp is one of my favorites by Unity Stamps.  It is so versatile and fun to color in using Copics or colored pencils.  Here I used Copics and added some Stickles for shine.  The cute papers are from October Afternoon.  I finished with layered flowers and a "hello" pebble.   Perfect for any occasion!

Greeting Farm Stamps ROCK!

Greeting Farms Stamps have some of the cutest little people around!  This little girl is one of my favorites!  I started with some of the new papers by October Afternoon (love 'em) and then stamped and colored the image with Copics. Then I added some cute flowers with bling, rick rack paper border and a little twine.
How cute is she????  Perfect for a special friend.  :)

Alice in Wonderland

Thought I would share a card I created a few weeks ago inspired by the new Alice in Wonderland movie.
I used a vintage stamp set by Tweety Jill and some beautiful floral paper.  Then colored Alice with Copics, added a matching flower/leaves, a few gemstones for sparkle, stamped a cute message on a tag and done!  
Easy and quick! :)

Strawberry Heaven

I love glad they're in season! :)  Of course I had to create a card using the new strawberry stamp from Unity!  Love the October Afternoon paper too...perfect for this stamp.  Color with Copics, add some Stickles and voila... a perfect strawberry!  What more could you ask for???  Enjoy!

I was in the mood to create something with a red and black theme so of course
ladybugs came to mind!  I searched in my stash and came of with this sweet stamp!
 The cute little ladybug stamp is from the KOM (Kit of the Month)-March10- {Rockin' It Unity Style!} from Unity Stamps.  I used one of the new red card colors from a Hero Hues set, some red/cream gingham paper from Memory Box, red dotted paper from Bo-Bunny and black glittered cardstock from Making Memories. I stamped the ladybug and colored in with Copics, added a few gemstones to her spots and pop-dotted her onto the scalloped circle. The saying "cute as a bug" is a clear acrylic stamp from Daisy Bucket.  Yea, I many different manufacturers but what can I say!  I like so many different companies! :)   However, Unity Stamps is definitely one of my favorite stamping companies!  :)  They have wonderful  images and their quality is awesome.  You can find them here:
