(Tip: if you have a problem with a particular link, try clicking on the person's blog title to send you to their Home page.)

I just love all of the beautiful stamp sets this month, and have had so much fun designing with them.  The Old Well was my choice for the reveal, but if you read to the end there will be a sneak peek of the Friendship Flowers and Spring Window!!

I stamped the image using black ink and colored with copic markers.  It was then fussy cut out and glittered using a glue pen,  Orchid and Bronze Splendor glitter.  I also stamped the bucket twice fussy cut and placed on top of the 1st image using pop dots.  That sweet little butterfly is a SU die.

The sentiment was stamped with brown ink and fussy cut around.  Pop dots were used to adhere to the card.

For the bottom brushes and grass I applied green Liquid Applique heat set and was so surprise how it turned out!!  I had never used Liquid Applique before, but I like how it puffs up while heating.  

 To create the background I first laid my brick wall stencil on top of the cardstock and cover it with embossing paste.  Removed the stencil and while the paste was still wet I lightly dusted with Sparkling Snow glitter.  The sparkle is just so pretty!!

Next it was time to create that pretty braided side!  You can find a tutorial as well as the template Here.

I just love how pretty this braid looks on the side of my card.  I finished it off with ribbon.  This is a must try, you will love the look!!

I finished off the inside of the card with those cute little bunnies and a scalloped punch from Fiskers.

A little sneak peek at projects to come using the new stamps!!  Hope you will check back to see the reveals!!

Happy Easter

Good morning everyone, hope you are having a great day!!  Today I would like to share this year's Easter cards.  This year's cards feature pop up cards along with stamp images.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them!!

This cards were all cut using my Silhouette.  I finished each one of them off using glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle, ribbon and embossing folders on the eggs and bunny.

Using the new Anna Griffin embossing folders I created this card.  The beautiful Easter Lilies are from My Rose Garden stamp set.  Using 1/4" Tear-ific Tape around the edges I created a beautiful sparkly border from my card.  The pretty sparkle is Purple Rain and Waterfall glitter.

The background for these cards was created using Tim Holtz's Spritzer, copic markers and a stencil.  The borders are punched from sticker paper using a scalloped punch from Fiskers. I covered them with Daisy and Bubblegum glitter to create that beautiful sparkle.  To finished off the card I stamped the tulips with black ink and colored with copic markers.  A little glitter was added with a glue pen.

And my finally card for the ladies in my Sunday School class.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look.  Enjoy your day and remember.....Keep Stamping!!

Spring is in the Air

Happy Saturday everyone, we are having a beautiful day here in Houston, TX!!!  It has been so dreary for the last couple of weeks, but today it's all sunshine and blue skies!!  I have been working on Easter cards and would like to share one I just finished.

The beautiful cross was cut from a svg file on the Silhouette Store, and glittered using Purple Rain glitter.  For the borders they were made using Anna Griffin border dies and embossing folders.  I cut them using sticker paper and glittered using Rapture Blue glitter.   The sparkly circle behind the cross was cut using Spellbinder's Circle die from sticker paper and glittered using Aqua Marine glitter.  To create the background paper I used Tim Holtz's Spritzer along with a stencil and blue and green markers.

The beautiful lilies are from the My Rose Garden stamp set.  They were colored using copic markers fussy cut out and glittered using a glue pen and Green Iris glitter on the leaves and Sparkling Snow glitter on the lilies.  The butterfly was die cut using SU butterfly die.

Easter Card

Good morning everyone hope you are having a wonderful day!!  Today I would like to share the start of my Easter cards with you.  

I cut the cross and background template using a files from the Silhouette Store.  I placed the template on top of a piece of cardstock covered with a Super Adhesive Sheet removed the backing and glittered using Purple Dust glitter.  An oval was cut into the center.

The cloth was glittered using Purple Rain glitter and placed inside the oval.  I attached the background to the card front using pop dots.

Using Sparkle N Sprinkle's Tulip stamp set, I stamped the image with black ink colored using copic markers and fussy cut them out.  They were arranged on the outside of the oval .

I hope you have enjoyed my card!

Happy Mother's Day Card

Good morning everyone, hope you are all staying warm!!!  It was 80 degrees here in Houston yesterday, and today it is 39 today!!  Gotta love Texas weather.  Today I will be sharing with you a card I finished for Sparkle N Sprinkle using the Tulip stamp set.  This stamp is so pretty and I think I will be using this design for my Easter cards.  I just love the way it turned out!!

I first cut the background template using my Silhouette. I placed a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of 5 x 5 white cardstock and removed the backing and placed the background piece on top. Sugar Plum glitter was then sprinkled on top of the adhesive sheet and burnished well with my finger.  I brushed away the loose glitter and was so happy with this beautiful background for my tulips.  

A circle was cut in the middle using Spellbinder's Circle Die.  Using the same die and one size smaller I cut a frame for my circle.  The tulips were then stamped and color using copic markers.  I stamped and colored the middle tulip twice and fussy cut it out and placed on top with a pop dot.  The little butterfly was die cut using SU butterfly die, and glittered using Bubblegum glitter.

The sentiment is from My Rose Garden it was stamped with versamark and embossed using Black Detail EP

I really love how pretty this turned out with all the beautiful sparkle!!

Thanks so much for stopping by have a great day, and remember.....Keep Stamping!!
