Bee Happy and more...



Bee Happy

Welcome!

I'm thinking if we all wish reaalllly hard we just might actually see some spring weather soon.  I was totally thinking about spring as I made my card for today, so I've done my part :)





I started my card by stamping our Daisy Bloom and Bitsy Bee on separate pieces of white card stock using black ink, coloring and fussy cutting them.   Once my grey layer was cut to size, I added a strip of black card stock and stamped our Spring Bee Happy Greeting above and below.  Before mounting the daisy I added a yellow flower brad to the center and added a little curve to the petals using an embossing stylus.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Piggy Grad


Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! It's getting to be that time of year..time for the Pomp & Circumstance march across the stage. I remember it well...mainly because I was in the band & played it for a lot of graduating classes! In the graduation spirit, I have a fun grad card today.

Normally, this pig image has a party hat along w/ a balloon but since I fussy cut him, I cut off the party hat. The small balloon was stamped again w/ lt blue ink, colored & fussy cut. All the other balloons were made by die cutting 2 sizes of balloons in a piece of copy paper & using the negative as a stencil. After I sponged the Distress inks thru the stencil I added some Wink of Stella to some of them. 
The greeting was stamped at the bottom & I used Copics to make the shadow underneath. A few grad caps & some drawn balloon strings & I was done!

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Fishing Rules!

Good morning!
Well summer and Father's Day is also in our near future so I'm trying 
to think ahead... This first card could be for any occasion but it 
is most likely going to be for the guy in your life!!
DRS stamps used: Fishing Rules 315K and Jumping Fish 325L

This card uses lots of corrugated card stock both torn and painted 
and as a base layer.  I used white paint and green paint and also 
some copper Nuvo Mousse.
I also used some gauze (or cheesecloth) and rubbed it with
Tea Stain Distress Ink.  I applied matte paper adhesive
to the blue panel with a brush and pressed the gauze into it.  
After the adhesive dried I inked it and because some of the paper had 
adhesive on it, I got some really different results, happy accident
you might say.  It just goes with all the other guy elements.
My fish is fussy cut from the jumping fish scene.

This next card is a cute birthday card, with birds and that darling
sentiment.
The bird dies are from Elizabeth Craft.  I colored them to look like the DRS
stamp bird on the feeder,  I believe they are Nuthatch.
Everything else is pretty simple.

Hey, thanks for visiting today!

Piggies and Chocolate

My card today designed itself.  I started with the Wood Grain Background stamp and added some sponging and a little water distressing. 
Then I thought I would add Leonard Pig's Dance of Joy which lead to the Hogs and Kisses Greeting, which led to the Giant Chocolate Chip (a Hersey's Kiss), and then it needed more fun so I added Birthday Party Pig.  Super fun to make since it kind of made itself.

Hugz,

Spring Time Cards

Hi Everyone,

Splish, splash!  The real life bird baths around these parts are absolutely overflowing....We've certainly had our share of April showers this weekend, and that's what inspired my two cards :)

I colored up the Bird Bath image and paired it up with the Spring is Creeping Greeting that I cut in half.  I matted each in black to make them stand out, and used the Interlocking Circles and the
Three Butterflies to create the background papers.   


After all the showers, I sure hope I see some flowers by the time May comes around. I colored up the Flower Border and fussy cut it out. They weren't long enough to go vertically down the card, so I cut them in half, before attaching them to the black strip of paper.  I wanted the card to be inspirational, so I stamped and layered up the Faith Greeting, knowing that it would cover up the middle portion of missing flowers. 


I attached these elements onto a background made using the Splatter Background stamp and the

Thanks for stopping by!
