First Brew

Good morning, How are you? I am on a mini vacation while you read this.

I am here with my Wednesday Creation for you using Sunsational Stamps.

I love using these stamps. There so cute and fun to play with.

Today I chose a latch card. First time doing it and I enjoyed it. You can get the directions HERE. It's so easy I made a few.

I used purple card stock for my background. Some green and purple washi i got in a swap. Added a circle for the latch. The image is

Hello, welcome to my Wednesday post for Sunsational Stamps.

Today I created a card using a Stamp that's not yet in the store. She is oh so adorable. 

I printed her on white card stock. Inked it with purple ink. I used pink glittery card stock as my base. She's so cute with the glitter. 

I made this a latch card. I used a paper flower I bought from a lady and I used a black sharpie around it. I then wrote Hello with the same marker. 

The inside is just a blank white card stock inked in the same purple as the front. 

Simple but still cute.

Hope you enjoyed my creation today. 

Have you used any of sunsational stamps stamps? I'd love to see if you have.

Special Friend

Hello, welcome to my Wednesday post for Sunsational Stamps.

Today I created a card using a Stamp called Tiffany with Max. She  is super cute with her puppy.

I chose to print her this time. I found the sentiment online. Pulled out 4 different samples of pink washi that I got in swaps, and some ink.

My background I chose purple, to match her hair. I used  pink for the back drop of the photo. Inked the photo piece with purple ink. Found a purple circle in a container. Printed and cut the sentiment and inked it in pink. Glued it to the purple circle.

Simple but still cute.

Here is the sketch I chose to use.

Here is my creation.

I hope you like it.

I did a few projects for you today. First I used the Butterfly-n-Flowers-Layout-CF-Set. from our sponsor . I chose this because I LOVE TO GROW SUNFLOWERS IN THE SUMMER. Seems its the only time they will grow for me. So I spend my summer with my sunflowers. Everything you see in my project except the background ,gems and the photo come in the file.   I LoVe It.

I chose orange, yellow and brown as my focal colors because that is the colors of my Sunflower.
I put some gems in the insides of the flowers. I don't know if you can notice but the butterfly paper, the green paper and the orange paper has sparkles made in it. I don't know where I got that paper but I love it. 

For my second project I created a BBQ Grill using a grill file from Cre8ive Cutz ..It's not perfect as I printed it from my printer and hand cut it all out. I used gems for the buttons. I wanted to make this because in the summer time is when the most BBQ happens. 

 Up next is Amanda.

Cool Cari

Hello, how was your July 4th holiday weekend? Mine was good.

Today I am here to share with you a few cards I made using stamps from Sunsational Stamps.

First I chose Cool Cari and her so cute tube. She is out to have a wonderful time this summer. I just recently bought a pack of Recollections variety pack of 25 cards and envelopes. They are all the same except the color of the dots. I used one with red dots for Cari. I printed the sentiment off of google.

Here is my Cool Cari card for you today.

I used a red and blue glitter ink pen to trace and color the heading. I also put a gold sequin in the middle of the ball and on the sentiment.

I then used a digi that we got for Lisa's Birthday Blog Hop. I really love this stamp and so glad I was there hopping. My friend Melissa had a birthday a few days ago and I  made this for her.

I used the purple dotted card for this one. I cut apart a butterfly and used it to make it look like the digi was flying away.The wings have a solid purple embossed cardstock behind them and glitter on top of them.  I inked around it with purple ink. I placed thin but fat pop tape behind the title and image.

There is my 2 creations for you today, using 2 very cute stamps from Sunsational Stamps.

I hope you enjoyed my post. Have you used any of Lisa's stamps? Which ones did you use?

Today makes 4 days until July 4th . The day we celebrate our independence. I love that that. I will be at a baseball game with my bestie and his wife, with his grandson that day. Fireworks will follow the game and it will be awesome. LOVE IT.

Today I am here with another creation using the stamps from Sunsational Stamps, I chose Liberty for today's card. I just love her. I chose a white card base, red bazzil scrap that was sitting on my desk. I was trying to find something else and I looked on the other side of my desk and saw a paper pad I just received in a swap. it was red and blue diamond with the red, white, blue scroll in middle. I cut the scroll out and used it behind my image. The title I cut from a cupcake stamp set. I thought it went perfect with this Liberty Stamp. I inked the edges in cardinal red and made a banner from title. Pop dotted title up. I am so happy with this card.

This is how I roll.

Oh my what a rough day it has been. To much going on in one day. No time for me because it is now bed time. Need that rest for another big day tomorrow.

I just wanted to share with you a card I put together from a kit I got in a kit in May from a swap on swap-bot. It came with everything in it. I just had to put it together and color it.

I think I could of colored the tree a little better. But I like it none the less.

I am entering it into Connie Can Crop Montly Challenge #35, Thats' How I Roll.

Here is my project for today's hop:

 I decided to create this lovely wind chime. I love it because it has a cute dog and also my favorite, BUTTERFLY. I then decided to also finish the 2nd wind chime, although it has no bugs.

 I love them. MY mom collects wind chimes so these are now her's. 

I also pulled a pack of shrink a doodles out. They was flowers, butterflies and dragonflies. I colored them in with the pink, purple, green colored pencil that came with them. I DISLIKE I can't really see the color in them. They was necklaces but I just used the same twine I used for the wind chimes and made them as hang ups.

I then wanted to see what it would be like if I used sharpies. I actually love them better.

I also took a short video of  the process. I love watching them shrink.

Forget Your Birthday?

Hello, it is Wednesday and that means I am here to share with you a creation using Sunsational Stamps. I love these fun stamps.

I chose a birthday one. My aunt loves elephants and I forgot her birthday, with all that had been going on, so I made it for her.

I actually made 4 almost identical but not really. I printed the digi and cut them out. I found purple paper and made me 4 card bases. I edged them all with Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry distress ink. I found 2 bows and I glued them on the balloon. I then needed 2 more so I cut a piece of ribbon in half and made the remaining bows. Using little gems I glued them on the hats.

Took me roughly 10 minutes to fully complete all 4 cards. Now I am ready for when I forget.

Here are my simple but fun cards.

I hope you enjoy my cards and will head over to Sunsational Stamps to pick you up some fun stamps to play with.

Swinging by to say HI

 Good morning. How are you doing? I am ok. Just trying to heal from a surgery I just had.

It's Wednesday and that means it is my day to share with you a creation using Sunsational Stamps. I chose the oh so adorable Swinging by to say hi stamp.

I haven't been able to clear my table in a month so I used all scraps off my table for this card. The background is the  remainder of a file folder. I love it. The 6 flowers are just randoms and I put a bling in the middle . The butterfly was one I just received in the mail.

I am very happy with my creation and it is still flat enough to mail with a stamp.

Here is my creation. Enjoy

So, How did you like my creation? Please feel free to comment and let me know. If you would like this little cute stamp you can get it here.

I currently have tons of Jamberry samples sitting here waiting to be used. If you would like one just message me your address and number of sample. I'll get it right out to you.

My mom has been in the hospital since Wednesday so I am up there everyday for hours with her. I grabbed a few scrap things as I ran out the door. Don't you love it when things hit you as your leaving?

I made this with a stamp from Sunsational Stamps . I colored it in with water color markers. Title was done with a bright pink ink pen. I made this card using a hospital chair as a table. Sorry if it looks bad. My mom loved it so I left it with her. I used white card stock as a base and a piece of green scrap paper. Took a purple ink pen and went around the edges of the white .

my work table, the hospital chair.
