Penny Black - I Heart You

Happy Saturday my friends!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. It's just the girl and myself today, so we're going to spend some time outside enjoying springiness and then do some crafty things later inside too.

I have a fun card to share with you today using some cute Penny Black stamps!

I used the super cool Hynotic stencil  for the design at the top. I covered half of the card with paper and used distress ink and sponge daubers to stencil in the colors. I then cut the Dancing leaves die out of light green paper and adhered it below the stenciled area. I colored the two cute little owls with Copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I adhered them with foam tape. I cut a banner out of black card stock and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and adhere that with foam tape underneath the owls.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy your weekend and upcoming week!

So today I am sharing a card created with the stamp set Surf and Turf using the matching dies that will be released on April 30th!

I first sponged a background with Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick, and Mustard Seed. I let that dry,  rounded the corners and adhered it to my card base with foam tape. I colored the cute little characters from the Surf & Turf Stamp set with Copic markers and cut them out with the new matching dies.  I cut the waves with the new Waves dies and added some white dots with my white gel pen. I layered the waves on my sponged background and glued a tan circle just underneath the top wave for a little beach. I adhered all of the cute little animals with foam tape and stamped the sentiment at the top.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy the hop!

Paper Smooches You're Cute-icle!

Hello Friends!

I wanted to share a card I made with a stamp set from the Paper Smooches April Release. I had so much fun with this set!!  I paired it with the flowers from the Reflections stamp set to make it even more girly :)

I first, using a paintbrush, tapped a little bit of ink on the corners of my white card stock for the little speckles, and then randomly stamped the flowers and leaves. Next I cut the hand and pink fingernails out. I glued the nails on the hand and then I painted them with fingernail polish!! Yes! Real fingernail polish! So fun! :) They look so shiny and pretty in real life! Then I added the big diamond from the Ahoy Ye Matey set, because every lovely hand needs a big diamond on it :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
