Exciting things happening in July

July is gonna be full of some surpises and excitement! One that I can share with you now, is from Power Poppy!

Did you see the latest newsletter? If not, keep reading and be sure to sign up so you get all the newsletters. 

You asked for it, and sweet stamping friends, YOU GOT IT! When Power Poppy first began unveiling the florals that make up the Instant Garden, some of you audibly squealed (we could hear you through the internet, yes!) But you needed more for your flower-coloring fix. You shouted in emails (as in ALL CAPS) that you wanted, you needed, you HAD TO HAVE MORE! Okay! Okay! We hear you! We love each and every one of those sweet blossoms and questioning whether we should add more was kind of like asking, “Do you really love chocolate?” Um, yes. So, without further ado, we’ll be serving up a fun, fresh remix of Marcella Hawley’s illustrations and sentiments on the 5’s of every month – the 5th, the 15th and the 25th! All you need to do is sit back and watch these lovelies sprout! (And then download, print and create with them yourself of course!) Our first release will be THIS SUNDAY, JULY 5TH! So, get ready for the digital buzz!

Oh Snap...

Happy Monday! A quick and fun House Mouse card for you today using Muscle Mouse. I think this one is retired now?? He is a favorite of mine, he makes me giggle.  ;-)  He is stamped on white card stock and colored with Copics. A simple gingham backing with a snipped end. Button in the corner and voila!  See... easy today.

Going to enjoy this 110 degree heat we have with the kids. Have a wonderful day!

Pencil me in Jeremiah

Happy Friday! Over at Power Poppy we are still playing with our Pencils in the Pencil Me In Challenge. All the details can be found HERE on the PP Blog. 

Now I have to admit that colored pencils and me are not a usual medium as they are typically a softer shade and I like the bold and bright. However today the new Garden Fireworks was perfect for some softer colors or at least as soft as I can get. hee hee  

My Garden Fireworks are colored with non other than the Crayola Pencils that I have on the desk. yep... good ole Crayola never lets me down. That and the fact I can't seem to find the few Prisma Color Pencils I have. They are lost in this room, which means I probably need to clean it up a bit. EEK.. Anyways, that is another story. The inside of my card is using the Scripture that comes with the digi and a family favorite Jeremiah 29:11. Below is the inside of my card. Voila!

Fathers day tool time

Here is one of the Father's Day cards I made this weekend. My new ODBD Dies came called Workshop Tools with  are a perfect match to the Happy Father's Day stamp set I have already. After my image was stamped and colored with Copics, a simple faux stitching around the border. My sentiment is on some vellum paper with my tools to the left. The background paper is from the new Vintage Ephemera collection with more faux stitching. Voila! 

Thanks for stopping in with me today. ;-)

Sage bookmark card

Good morning! Hope your Monday has started off fresh and new this week. Very easy peasy weekend around our house which was really nice. managed to get some stamping time in Saturday and thankfully as I had 3 Father's Day cards to get done. EEK!!! Of course this one was not one of those.  Still had not inked up Sage Advice yet from the June Release and figured it was calling out to me. I wanted to create a card with attached bookmark as a gift and it turned out just as I wanted. 

My bowl of spices is stamped on white card stock and colored with Copics. The image was cut around and dimensionals added to the back. Some designer paper is layered under the beautiful Vintage Flourishes die and some added sequins and sparkles to finish it off. Voila! 

This is the card closed with the bookmark inside. You can tuck the ribbons inside or behind when you slide it into the envelope. I really like the feel of this and know exactly who this is going to.  ;-)  

Thanks for stopping by to see me today. Hope you have a wonderful day!

FS437 Good Luck

This weeks Featured Stamper 437 is Lisa aka Lisa Ku. Cute gallery and I almost choose one for the kids, but I needed a guy card. As soon as I saw this Aged to Perfection card I knew that was the one to case. Kept with the masculine theme, colors and stamp. Changed the layout, papers and added candi dots and vellum. Enjoy your week Lisa. 

It has been forever since I used Lovely as A Tree from SU. This set is always a great set for the guy cards. This happens to be for one of my husband employees that moved recently. The tree has some sudoko gel pen on it to make is sparkle, but hard to see in the photo. Some faux stitching and voila!

Garden Fireworks Belly band

Happy Friday and new digi day! Well technically it was on the 15th Monday, but new to someone right?  ;-)  This is the new Garden Firework digi! The color variation can be just about anything it is wonderful. 

My creation took the approach of "fireworks" with red, white and blue color combo.  ;-)  It has been forever since I created a Belly Band card and thought it would be fun especially with the colors. This designer paper has been in my stash for over a year and needed to be used. It matched pretty stinking good too so why not. After the Garden Fireworks were printed they were colored with Copics. Die cut with some Spellbinders Decorative squares. Added a few butterflies and jewel centers and finished off with some sparkle. Voila!
