Hello and thanks for stopping by! :) Today I wanted to share this adorable stamp with you!


 am in love with the this stamp designers Gorjuss line.  This little girl is so fun to color and I love the endless options of coloring!  Today I just wanted to color and create a few stamped images that I could use later on cards.

I stamped these with Momento tuxedo black ink and colored the images using Copic markers. 

I used E51, E02 and E00 for the flesh colors. 

I colored one girl with a pink and purple dress.

The other little girl I colored in yellow and green. 

Here are the finished products.  I used a black marker to go around the edges of the girls after I fussy cut them out. I am looking forward to creating cards with these! 

I hope you have a wonderful day!  Go out there and create!!! Thanks for stopping by! 

Quick and Easy Thank You Card

Today my husband asked me to make a thank you card.  He needed it for tomorrow and it was already 8pm. Normally I like to plan out my cards and give myself plenty of time, but tonight I was a little more rushed. I have to say though that I was happy with this card. So here it is. 

I started with Canson water color paper. Using the anti-static power I then stamped my humming bird image using Versa Mark ink. I also stamped the flower that came in the same Inkadinkadoo stamp set, then covered it with detail gold embossing powder. After heat setting the images I decided to work on the background. I used pink, blue, and purple distressed ink with my sponge blending tools to create a background. Then I spritzed the background with water and once again heat set the background. I added a rhinestone to the flower and the humming bird eye as well as a few sequins. For my background card I once again used the Versa Mark ink to stamp the flower and then used clear embossing powder on top.  I heat set the background and adheres the card from on top. 

This card only took about 30 minutes to make. It was fun and easy as well as cute. I hope the thank you shows how appreciative we are for our friends help. 

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful productive day!

Unicorn Shakers

Unicorn Shakers!

Welcome back!  I wasn't kidding when I said I love unicorn stamps!  I couldn't wait to make things with this new stamp! Today I made these three unicorn cards. Of course I had to make some shaker cards because everything needs glitter and sparkle, especially unicorn cards!!!

I started by stamping the image a few times on Neenah Solar White 85lb card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This time I used my acrylic block! yay!

Using my Copic Sketch markers I colored each unicorn, one purple, one pink and one blue. I created a shadow on the body of the unicorn using my Cool Gray Copic markers.  I went a little overboard with the gray on the blue unicorn and ended up coloring her in gray. She was still beautiful though. I added a few details to the unicorns like details on their hind legs, and  some eyeshadow. 

Next I fussy cut the images out using my Cutter Bee scissors. Then, I cut my 81/2 x 11 card stock in half and scored to create a card base.  I cut a scalloped frame on the Silhouette Cameo measuring 4.2" x 5.45".  I wanted it slightly smaller than the card base.  I chose some background paper from my stack of patterned paper (sorry, it's been so long I'm not sure what pad of paper this came from but I think it was from the target dollar section!)

I adhered the patterned paper to the card stock base (I cut them slightly smaller than the A2 base so that the edges would be hidden under the scalloped frame.) Then it was time to make my shakers.  Using the Fuse tool from We Are Memory Keepers I created three shaker pouches with basic page protectors.  I filled the pouches with sequins and shaker glitter from Recollections.
Make sure to shake the shaker pouch before you attach it to the card to ensure all sides are completely sealed. If any shaker material comes out, go over that side again with the fuse tool. You also want to make sure your fuse tool has enough time to get good and hot!  If it's not hot enough, the plastic will not weld together and your shaker goodies will fall out.  
Using the groove in the Fuse ruler seems to work best.  Sometimes the Fuse tool will stop rotating on me but when I use the grove, it seems to work just fine. It also helps me to create a straight line.  Be sure to go slowly over the plastic to let it heat up and weld together completely.
Flowers and sparkle were a must.  I layered some Recollections flowers along with sequins and a few rhinestones to the front of the cards. Here are the final products...

(it has to be shown first since it's my favorite color!)


(The clear sequins didn't sow enough so I added a rhinestone to each one.)

These were the three cards I made today using the unicorn stamp.  I hope you have a wonderful day today and create something magical.  Thanks for stopping by!
