Hey Sweetie

Looking for a cute little stamp perfect for a baby card, a sweet friend card or a little love for the Hub?  How about this adorable bear from LDRS Creative Candibean collection.  I have had this stamp sitting in my "to do" pile and finally decided to DO it!  It was fun and the colors combined with the paper just fit.
I wanted to make it a generic card  for any occasion, but I think next time I will make a baby card in pastel colors.  This stamp is just so fun.

You can get it at this link or have your local store get it on order.

I am Die-ing Over Here

Some times you just need a moment to do what you want to do!  My list of things to do will always be a mile long, so no sense in waiting to get my list done first.
I have been wanting to play with Karen Burniston's die - Dutch the Fox.  I wanted to see if I could add Copics to the cut-out pieces and make a cute card with the coloring twist.  If you enjoy to color I would love to see what you do with a die.  I used all the cut out pieces for this card...plus added Karens amazing Pop It Up - Chicken Wire die for the background.  I am not being paid to say this by the way...but OMG these are awesome dies!!!  LOVE this chicken wire...found a keeper!  And who can resist this cute fox?!  I tried to find a chicken image for the background (behind the fence but, believe it or not, I didn't have a single one)

Blossoming Woman

Some of the new release from Stampendous have complimenting dies.  For this card I used both the cling stamps as well as the dies to create this card.  After playing with my airbrush on glossy card to make the background I colored up the images.  I used the girl and the flowers that come with the set and added the butterflies that come from the set Indigo Cats.  I thought it was the perfect combination.

Carlottas Garden

I got to attend this years Creativation (formally known as CHA) in Phoenix Arizona this year.  I was super blessed to be able to work at the Stampendous booth coloring some of the new Laurel Burch line of stamps with my Copics.  Here I am being serious (as usual).  It was so wonderful to be asked to work for Stampendous as they are such a great company and the employees are so sweet, not to mention their stamps are made quality with so many different types and options to fit everyones style. 
This was just the funnest thing to color.  It was adult coloring for card makers and was so relaxing!  This is a new Laurel Burch stamp by Stampendous.  Laurel Burch rarely used this color combo but it is a fun combo and the colors really got me hooked.  You can find this stamp now available both online as well as through your local retailer, all you have do is ask and they will get it in.

Nuvo Crystal Drops - Must Haves!

I love playing with Nuvo Crystal Drops from Tonic Studios...actual they are my latest MUST HAVES!!  I have almost stopped using brads as Nuvo are so quick and easy and the color options are endless.  Unlike other products similar to these...Nuvo dries quicker and does not take days.  I like to use them in my classes as the students can use it in class and its safe to travel home in the car without having it smear.  All you do is squeeze the size drop out of the bottle and it settles in to form a little dome of color.  Nuvo drops come in so many options, from Crystal metallic, Jewel transparent, Glitter to solid Crystal colors.  Yes, I need all the colors!!    

For this card I used the new Hummingbird Blossom stamp from Stampendous.  I kept the concept simple so the image would pop.  I did a splatter background with Copics to bring out the orange in the flower.  The final touch after cutting and popping it up on the card was the Nuvo flower center.  So super fun!  Did you notice the three brad like dots up in the right hand corner of the card?  YUP...matching Nuvo Drops embellishments!
