I really think Spunky is a cute stamp set!  He really made a cute addition to my page!

I used copic markers to color him and then using Dimensional Glue on the tail, legs and hands I glittered using Night Sky.  I used Brushable Glue and Sparkling Snow on the white areas of his head and tail!  The cute little heart was glittered using Bubblegum and brushable glue.

To create the background paper I stamped with Flourishes 2 stamp set 1st with versamark and embossed with Tinsel EP, I then can back and stamped over with red ink.  I added some pearls to the swirls.

I used Flourishes 1 stamp set and White Spark EP on the red heart.  The cute little hearts were stamped with versamark and embossed with White Spark EP and fussy cut for a cute little embellishment for my sweet little picture.  I glittered the heart on my sweet grandson's shirt using a Glue Pen and Fire Engine glitter, this really adds to your picture!

The date was stamped with versamark and embossed with White Spark EP.  I punch it out using a circle punch and glued it to my dolly.

You can find all the instructions on how to create this page HERE!

I would like to share a sneak peek at a LO using Cinderella Slipper stamp set! 

Good luck to everyone!!  I hope you all have a wonderful New Year!!!  Be safe and remember....Keep Stamping

Christmas Reindeer

Hi everyone, hope you all are ready for Christmas and have a wonderful time with family and friends!! I would love to share a Christmas layout of my cute little reindeers with you today.

I inked my chipboard antlers with brown ink and then embossed with Clear embossing powder.  The jingle bells were inked with versamark ink and embossed with Golden Sparkle embossing powder.  The sparkle on the bells is so pretty.  I cut Christmas from the Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge and glittered using brushable glue and Fire Engine Red glitter.
The harlequin design on the white card stock was created using Mini Harlequin template and Gesso.  While the gesso is still wet I dusted lightly with Champagne glitter.  The look is really beautiful and so sparkly!

Here is a closer look at Rudolph, he is die cut from chipboard, and inked with brown ink.  The pretty golden leaves are die cut using sticker paper, remove the backing and glitter with Champagne glitter.
A cute little red bow and fire engine red glitter for his nose!  Fire Engine Red glitter and Dimensional Glitter, were used around the photo.   There is a great video by Jazzy Jill Here for adding glitter to the photo.

Thank you for stopping by, hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone.....Belinda

Flowers Feed The Soul

Hi everyone, it has been awhile since I have posted!!  Things have been really busy here.  I would like to share a card that I made for my daughter's mother in law for her birthday.  I used the Geraniums stamp set from SNS.  This is a really pretty stamp with many ways to use it.

To create the background paper I stamped the silhouette stamp with versamark randomly and embossed with White Spark.  It really made for a pretty background. 

I stamped the image with black ink onto watercolor paper.  I then took the silhouette stamp and colored with  copic marker RV06 on the flowers and G14 on the stems directly onto the rubber stamp.  I then spritz the stamp with alcohol and stamped on top of the first image.  This give a look of watercolors using copic markers.  The alcohol works like water on watercolors.  It really turned out pretty.  Using a glue pen I glittered the flowers with Bubblegum glitter and the centers with Daisy glitter.  I cut the image using Spellbinder's Floral Ovals.

I stamped white card stock with the small flourish from Flourish Two with pink ink.  The sentiment was stamped and punched out with an oval punch. 
The card turned out so pretty, and she loved it!!
If you like what you have seen, you can find all the supplies at SNS online  store.

Good morning everyone it's Belinda with another fun layout!!  It is almost Thanksgiving, can't believe the year is almost gone!  I don't make pages by the time of the year, so this might seem a little off for this time of the year.  Here in Texas you can go to the beach anytime of the year.  However this picture was taken in Oceanside, CA during summer vacation.  We really had a great time there and spent almost everyday at the beach.  I would like to share my beach layout with you!!

You will be able to find all the instructions and products used on this layout HERE!

I made the sand by tearing 2 strips of 12 inch white cardstock.  Once I liked how it looked I inked the cardstock with versamark and embossed using Hit The Beach embossing powder.  This really made a nice look, just the right amount of sparkle!

I them stamped the cars, surf boards, palm trees, fences and flip flops from the Surfin' Woody stamp set.  All of these images were colored using copic markers, cut out and stamped with versamark and embossed using Sparkle embossing powder.  The flip flops were embossed using Dark Night.

To create the water I repeat the tearing of cardstock using blue cardstock, on the top and bottom edges I used Dimensional Glue and Waterfall glitter.

I used a 4" dolly to create the sun and tucked it under the blue cardstock. The sparkle you see is Evening Glow.

To add those soft clouds to the white cardstock, I used half of a medium scallop punch, punched twice onto cardstock to create a mask and soft pastel chalks.

To finish off the page a cute banner and letters for a really fun page!!

Looking forward to next year's fun on the beach!  I always have a wonderful time on the beach with my 2 favorite boys!!

Hope you all have a for wonderful Thanksgiving.  I know in my family we have many blessing to be thankful for!!!

Thanks for stopping by and remember.....Keep Stamping!!

I just love how pretty these cards turn out!!!  You can find all the instructions and tutorials about these cards on Karen Burniston's  Blog.  She has amazing ideas and wonderful tutorials, be sure to visit her blog.

A Wintery Christmas Card

Hi there, it's Belinda here!!  Hope you all are having a wonderful day!  I have been busy working on this year's Christmas Cards and just love the Winter Wonderland set.  I thought how pretty it would be in a window card, so I went to work!

I first cut my window froma window die, and stamped and colored my image with copic markers.  You will need to cut the image to fit inside the window die.  I used Twinkling Clouds and Sparkling Snow on the window scene.

Next die cut the window box and attached it to the window.  I thought I need something to embellish the box and it came to me, the poinsettia from the Snow One Like You stamp set.  Just stamp the image 3 times and cut out.  Color with copic markers and glittered the center with Golden Silver

You will only need the poinsettia portion of the stamp!

You will adhere the window to the card front.  I used a pine branch punch for the pine.  Arrange it on the top and on each side of the window box.  Using brushable glue add Green Iris on the tips of the pine branch.

I hope you have enjoyed this card, I really love this set!!  You can find complete instructions on how to make this card HERE!
Thanks for stopping by!!  I hope your day is as "special" as you are,  see you again soon!!
