Jack-O-Lantern Faces


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have another card to share with you using the fun new Jack-O-Lantern Faces from  Frantic Stamper!!

There are three Jack-O-Lantern faces in this die set, but I only used two of them for my card!

I die cut them from the black paper to reveal the paper behind, was going for a kind of spooky scene on this card!
I just LOVE these die cuts!!

The sentiment is from SweetStamps.com, part of their Halloween Kids stamp set!

Have a lovely day!

We often forget to step back and relax!  So I was super excited to create a project with relaxation in mind!!

I decided to use the awesome new Flip Flops stamp set!!

I occasionally like to put on a pair of flip flops, grab a glass of wine and walk down to our pond/beach and sit down and enjoy the beautiful view!

So I was inspired to create a wine tag with a relaxation theme:

I stamped the flip flop image multiple times on a piece of Sunset Yellow pattern paper with Wild Orchid ink!!
 I just love the bright fun papers from D2BA!  You can find them all here!

My current favorite colors are Yellow, Purple, Pink and Turquoise!!

The fun "Relax...unwind get in a flip flop state of mind." is from the Flip Flops stamp set as well!
What a fun wine tag!

My plan for this coming weekend is....RELAX!
Here's a view of my "relaxing place":
My happy place!

Flopping Fabulous

Happy Friday Stamping Friends!

It's my day to post on the Great Impression Stamps Blog once again!

For my card today, I thought I would use the Hanging Flip Flops (E797)!  I just love summer, its so nice and relaxing to throw on a pair of flip flops!
I stamped the fun flip flop image twice, to make it look like they are hanging on a wash line across my card!

 I colored them in fun bright colors!  And finished off my card by adding the super fun Flopping (D520) sentiment!!

YNS Challenge #44

Hello Stamping Friends!

Join in the new challenge at Your Next Stamp!!
Click here to find the current challenge!

Here's some inspiration for you:

Here is a card sketch....


and photo/colors to find inspiration from....


-----------------
When I seen the card sketch I knew right away I was going to use the Scribble Fun Two stamp set!!
Such a perfect stamp set for the fun circles!!  I also used the set for the Happy Birthday sentiment!  

Instead of creating all stamped circles, I thought it would be fun to stamp some stars as well since it was a birthday card.  So I used the stars from the fun Blast Off stamp set!

I finished off my card by adding some white gumdrops from the Candy Corn Gumdrops set!

See all the other inspiration from the DT on the YNS Blog!

Halloween Fun with FS


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a HALLOWEEN card to share with you using dies from Frantic Stamper!!

Just yesterday Frantic Stamper released a new line of Halloween Dies!!
Be sure to check them all out here!

I had such a fun time getting a head start on my Halloween cards!!

I have two cards to quickly share with you!

Both use the fun new Stitched Corner-Cut Tags Die set to create the card bases!!
 I also used the fun Spooky Happy Halloween Die on both for the sentiment!!  Such a fun die cut sentiment, I love it!
This first one I thought it would be fun to create as a shaker card!!

On the next one, I only used the Halloween portion of the die cut sentiment, and stamped the Happy.
I also used the cute Spiderweb Corner and Spider Die set!  I die cut the spiderweb three times and adhered it to the top left corner of my card.  And finished it off by adding the cute spider!!

This die release really has me looking forward to Halloween!!

Have a lovely day!
