Some Bunny

Hello Stamping Friends!!

I'm on the Dare 2B Artzy Blog today!!

With Easter being this weekend, I thought it would be fun to use the super adorable Raggity Rabbit stamp set!!

I absolutely love the adorable rabbit stamp in this set, so I decided that the rabbit was going to be my main focus!  No sentiments or other images on the front, just this cute image!
I added a few layers of pattern paper and ribbon to add some interest!

I saved the sentiment for the inside... 
As well as the carrot image, both from the Raggity Rabbit stamp set!!

This card would be fun to give a child, even when it's not Easter!

You Rule!


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a fun card to share with you using new dies from Frantic Stamper!!

When I got the Ruler die, I instantly thought it would be fun to die cut it a few times with different colored paper, to create my own background!
Isn't the background fun?!  I just love how it turned out!!

I used the Stitched Double Fishtail Labels to create the layered die cut black and white banners.  I then added the You Rule! sentiment to the white one!!

So fun!

Birthday Stars


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a fun birthday card to share with you today using dies from Frantic Stamper!!


I normally always have a ton of feminine birthday cards on head, it's the masculine pile that always seems to be a little slim.

So for my card today I decided to focus on creating a masculine card!

I used the awesome Nested Stitched Stars, I die cut the largest one from the left side of my white cardstock, so that I could have a piece of pattern paper showing below!  I also then die cut one from blue cardstock to go along with the blue I was using on the card, as well as one from a piece of striped pattern paper!

For my sentiment I used awesome Script Happy die! I just LOVE the font used for this die cut sentiment!
I then stamped the "Birthday" sentiment from the All in the Family stamp set!

Hug Time Bookmark

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's DT Dare day at Your Next Stamp!!

DT Dare is....
Book Inspiration


With this month's release of the Insanely Happy stamp set, I instantly thought about Trolls!!  My daughter has been asking for me to get her a Troll book sometime, so I thought I would take the time to surprise!  I went shopping to pick up a book!  And use this dare to create a bookmark for her!
I just love how the cute little bookmark turned out!!  She was so excited when I gave this little gift to her just because!!

I used the Cool Tag Four Die Set to create my tag shape!  I actually die cut it three times, to make the bookmark thick and sturdy!  I die cut it once with heavy white cardstock and then found two pieces of fun pattern paper to adhere to each side!

On the front, I added one of the sweet trolls from the Insanely Happy stamp set!
I stamped the Flower Ink Splatter to the top of the bookmark using Totally Teal Ink!! 

I added the "Hug Time' sentiment from the Insanely Happy stamp set, as my kids are totally into yelling "HUG TIME" occasionally, so we huddle up for a hug, thought my daughter would love that!

I also added 3 sparkly gumdrops from the Candy Land Glittered Gumdrops pack!

As I mentioned earlier, I also added a piece of pattern paper to the back side!  Again I stamped the Flower Ink Splatter, but this time I used Pink Flamingo Ink!
I  stamped the 'love you' sentiment from the new Whatnot Sentiments Nine stamp set in Black Olive Ink!!  I perfect for my daughter, that I love her!! 

So sweet!

I really like how this bookmark turned out!!

Are you ready?!

WARNING: This release is going to be a MAJOR cuteness overload!!!


So MANY great new stamp sets and dies being released today!!!


--------------------

First up, I am featuring the new Sweet Humming Bird stamp set!
 I absolutely LOVE the beautiful floral image!!

I also really like the super sweet little humming bird!!
Along with the flower and humming bird, there are two sentiments.  A birthday sentiment and the sweet one I used 'Hope your day is as sweet as you."!!  I really like this sweet sentiment, so perfect for those just because cards!!!

-----

Don't quote me, as my mind does sometimes change easily, especially with such an amazing release...but I would have to say this next stamp set I am featuring is my favorite!! (But I sure love the flowery sets released as well!!)

Growing up I can remember collecting and playing with trolls!!  Then the Troll movie came out recently and both my kids (and myself!!!) fell in love with it!  I think it is so cute that Poppy loves to create cards and scrapbook!

So I am so SUPER exited to see the new Insanely Happy stamp set from YNS!  I actually did a happy dance!!

So here is the first card I created with it:
Isn't it fun?!

I colored her in with my Copics!! 

There is a coordinating Insanely Happy Die Set to match the stamp set!  Always nice to have!!
I stamped the Star Ink Splatter behind the troll in Sunflower Yellow Ink!

Such a fun and happy stamp set!!

YNS April Preview Day

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's that time of the month at Your Next Stamp!!

It's Preview Day today!
Tomorrow is Release Day!!!!

I honestly have NO clue where to begin this month!  So many of the sets being leased this month....I AM IN LOVE WITH!!

---------------------


Since spring is almost here and I can not wait to see my daffodils and tulips blooming, as well as all my other flowers, I decided to showcase the Bunches of Happiness stamp set!!
There are 4 gorgeous flower bouquets in this set, a vase, a bow and 3 sentiments!!

As you can tell by my card, I used the tulip bouquet!  I absolutely love tulips!!  Just wish they would bloom longer!!

With Mother's day coming in May, I thought it would be very fitting to use this sentiment from the set, in which I stamped with Black Olive Ink on the die cut banner from the Cool Tag Two Patterns Die Set!! (I LOVE this banner, it is used a lot by me!!)

I also used the Stitched Ovals Die Set for my card!

Thanks so much with IBS


Hello Stamping Friends!

Today I am on the Inspired By Stamping Blog!!


Spring is right around the corner!!  Which means....FLOWERS!  I absolutely love flowers!  They are my other addiction!  

So with flowers on my mind, I decided to grab a few IBS stamp sets and create a pretty card!!

I started my cutting my main card layer at 3 3/4" x 5", I then measured down from the top of the piece of paper at 1 3/4" and made a little pencil mark on each side.  I then ran a piece of washi tape past each pencil mark to help hold the paper to my scrap piece of paper!


I then began having some fun stamping some foliage from the Big Thanks and Words ofInspiration II stamp sets using two different colors of green ink!  
Once I was pleased with how it looked, I started to stamp some of the cute tiny flowers from them sets as well!

Thinking about fields of flowers, I decided to added two little butterflies from the Butterflies stamp set as well!  I just love walks on our land through an area where I planted a bunch of wildflowers and seeing the butterflies! (This card is really making me wish for summer!!)
I love this cute little scene I've created with these tiny stamps!  I originally was going to use one of IBS's gorgeous floral stamps for my card today, but thought it would be fun to focus on the smaller images, as I tend to forget about them once in awhile!  So I thought it would be fun to share how fun they are to use!


My finished card:
I just love how it turned out!

I ended up using the Big Thanks stamp set to add the "thanks", which I stamped just a little into my field of flowers!  And then stamped the tiny "so much" just below it!
Such an elegant thank you card!

Have a lovely day!

Bubble Bath Layout


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a fun layout to share with you using the adorable Mom and Baby Ducks die set from Frantic Stamper!!

When I seen the die set, I instantly thought they would be perfect for a bubble bath layout!

So I created this layout for my son's album:
 I die cut the 'bubble bath' title from my Cameo!  All the fun bubbles are stickers!!

And I added the adorable duckies to the bottom of my layout:
So fun and cute!!!

YNS Challenge #61

Hello Stamping Friends!

Time for a new challenge at Your Next Stamp!!
Click here to find the current challenge!

I always really enjoy these challenges!!

There is always a fun card sketch to find inspiration from, which I usually always do!!  There is also a fun photo/colors to find inspiration from as well!!

-----------------

This challenge, I found inspiration from the card sketch and used a few of the colors!!

I used the fun Cute Gnomies stamp set to stamp the gnome with the wheelbarrow with Black Olive Ink!  I used my Copics to color it in!  I then used the coordinating Cute Gnomies Dies to cut it out!  I just love that almost all of YNS's stamps have coordinating dies!  As I am getting older my eyes aren't what they use to be!! LOL!!  Fussy cutting sure isn't as easy as it use to be!!
I also used the "You're awesome and you 'gnome' it" sentiment!" from the Cute Gnomies stamp set, in which I inked up with the Mocha Ink!

I just love this fun scene!!

I used the Little Barn die, along with the Barnyard Fence, Stitched Grassy Hill Edgers, Farm Accessories and Tractor!!  So much fun!!

I finished off the card by adding the die cut "Hey" sentiment, which is part of the Hey Ya'll die set!

You Warm My Heart

Hello Stamping Friends!!

Dare 2B Artzy is a Super Sponsor for the Coffee Lover's Spring Blog Hop!
I've never joined in this hop before, but thought I finally would!!

I decided to feature the Perfect Blend stamp set from Dare 2B Artzy!!


I really like the mug stamp in the set and when I seen it, I thought it would be fun to "spice" it up a little, by adding some flowers!!  As most of my cappuccino/cocoa mugs have flowers on them!!  

So I stamped the mug on a piece of white cardstock and used some post-it notes to mask up around the mug where I didn't want the flowers to stamp!  I used the Happiness Blooms stamp set for the cute cluster of flowers!
Now don't get me wrong this mug is awesome just the way it is!  
But just think all the endless possibilities there are in customizing this mug!!  So fun!!

I did the same for the top part of the mug as well!!

I then used the coordinating Mug Die to die cut it out so I could use pop-dots to adhere it to my card base!
I stamped the mug on a piece of kraft cardstock as well and fussy cut the middle part, so I could then run it through my die cutting machine with a striped embossing folder!  Makes it look just like those coffee wraps!!

I really like how the mug turned out!! 
I stamped the steam above the mug and added two enamel hearts!  I also added the 'You warm my heart' sentiment, which are both from the Perfect Blend stamp set as well!

I just love those pretty hearts on the mug!!

Check out all D2BA's products here!  And join in the hop!!  There are a lot of fabulous prizes being given away!!!

Thanks for stopping by! 

Have an ARTZY day!
