---------------------

I had so much fun creating this project!!!

For my main image, I used the adorable Snowman Fun (H188) stamp!
I just love snowman images!!
I thought it was the perfect image to use to add some of the die cut Wee Petites - Snow Flurries snowflakes too! 

What a fun pacakge!

Behind the image, I have some layers, which I stamped the Snowflake Swirl Background (J105) on the top and bottom of the patterned paper, I also then added a strip from the die cut Whispers - Bubbles Background!  

You can see the Whispers - Bubbles Background even more as you open the package:

A look at it completely opened up:
Perfect to add a little gift in!!

I love the Have Yourself (E512) sentiment, which is what I used for the inside of this gift box, along with using the Snowflake Cluster (A71) stamp to add snowflakes around the sentiment!

Fun part is I masked the Have Yourself (E512) sentiment, so that the "Merry" and "Christmas" didn't stamp! Gave me the chance to use the awesome Sweet Wordlets - Merry Christmas die!

 The die works perfectly with the sentiment!!  Love it!!

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Your next stop in the hop is Emilia van den Heuvel's blog
We hope you're inspired all along the way!

IBSIC #86

Happy Friday Sweet Stamping Friends!!

I am on the Inspired By Stamping Blog today sharing a fun Birthday card based on this month's new Color Inspirational photo and sketch!

Here are the colors to find inspiration from:
IBSIC-#86-Color

And the sketch:
IBSIC-#86

This is the card I created:
 I started off by using a few of the dies from the Fancy Labels 3 Die set to create my main focal point of this card.


For the circle die cut, I then added the fun polka dot circle frame from the Cute Circles set, along with the "Happy Birthday" from the All Year Wishes II set.

The blue stamped die cut was stamped with the awesome design from the Fancy Labels III set.

Close-up:
The little "to you" banner was created once again with one of the dies from the Fancy Labels 3 Die and then I used the "to" from the Little Phrases II and the "you" from the Little Phrases set!

How fun!!

I just LOVE the Fancy Labels 3 Die along with the stamps that match!!

So many fun dies and stamps used in this Birthday card!!

Join in, we would love to see what you create!!

Best part?...You have a chance at winning some amazing goodies of your own!!

Cute Spider with GI

Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

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

Up again this week, I have another Halloween card!

This week I used the the Spider Web (G379) and Itsy Bitsy Spider (AA23) as my main image!
 I combined the two images, by drawing a line from the spider to the web!

For my sentiment on top, I used the Halloween Greetings (A134) stamp!

I also used a gelly roll pen, in black, to add shimmer to the web!
As you can see a little better in this close up!
A nice added touch to the web!

Thank you for stopping by to see my project today!

Chalkboard Technique

My card:
I thought the Floral Corner Wrap stamp would be fun to use for this technique!

I love the Wonderful Day sentiment!

I die cut a few flowers and flourishes in white cardstock and then used colored chalk to add a little color to them.
I really like how this card turned out!

SS carries so many lovely frames that would work so well with this technique!

Just Text Me - Text Only with Red Rubber Designs

Hello Stamping Friends!

This week's Inspirational on the Red Rubber Designs Blog is hosted by Lynda!

Inspirational #137 Just Text Me - Text Only


What a fun inspirational! 

Here's my inspiration for you:
I just love how this card turned out!
I decided to go with a shaped card, which I created in Make the Cut!

 I used some of the Jewel Tone inks to stamp various "Birthday" stamps on the "1"! 
I decided to stamp various birthday's on the one since this inspiration was "text only"! 

This main "happy, happy Birthday" sentiment is part of the Savvy Sayings set!

Fun!

---------------------

Be sure to join in, we'd love to see what you create!!

Be sure to check out the Red Rubber Designs store for all their lovely stamps!
And other fun products as well!
