Sketch and Color Challenge #12 with YNS

Hello Stamping Friends!!

I have one last card to share with you as part of my GDT spot this month with Your Next Stamp!!!

I have really enjoyed designing with them this month!  Such fun stamps and dies!

Here is some inspiration to used for their current challenge:


I got inspiration from them both!

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

Here is my finished card:
I used the fun Spring Birds stamp set!

On the top of the stamped image piece I used some Sparkly Pink Gumdrops!  They are amazing!!
I broke up one of the sentiment's in the set!

I also used the fun Chevrons die!
Thgought it was fun to use it to look as though I was pointing to the "celebration" sentiment!

Super fun!  I really like this card design!
Especially the combination of colors used!!

Happy Mother's Day Tag with GI

Happy Thursday Stamping Friends!

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

This week we are featuring Mother's Day tags!!

Here is one I created with my special mom in mind:
I used the B150 Happy Mother's Day sentiment as my main focus on my tag!

I also added the K87 Flower Flourish on both the top and bottom of the turquoise cardstock!

Thought it was a nice added touch, with the pattern paper!

Some Buggie Loves You with YNS

Hello Stamping Friends!!

I have another card to share with you using some fun stamps from Your Next Stamp!!!

It's Feature Day on the YNS Blog!

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

I was asked to create a shaped card!
I love making fun cards like this!

I decided to create a circle shaped card!
I used the fun Bitty Bugs set!

Aren't the bugs adorable?!
I sure think so!
There are a total of 6 adorable bugs in the Bitty Bugs set!

I added some glitter to the hearts, butterfly and bow on the ladybug!
The heart stamped on each side of the sentiment is part of the Jessica with Happy Mail set!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Stitching Holes Die Set!!

Happy 50th with IBS

Happy Sunday Stamping Friends!!

I have SUPER fun masculine card to share with you today using some fun Inspired By Stamping products!!

I just LOVE how this card turned out, will be making more of these in the future!!
I cut out the 50 from my card base on my Cameo, I then stamped the paper in the background with the chevron pattern from the Backgrounds Basics II set!!

I stamped the large "Happy" from the Happy Sentiments set just perfectly, so that I could add the "TH" from the Pretty Planners set!  I love how it looks!!
This card was one of those "HAPPY DANCE" in the scrap room when finished moments!!

Super FUN!

Pretty Tulips with GI

Happy Thursday Stamping Friends!

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

I love my tulips in spring!!
The H253 Parrot Tulips reminds me of all my lovely tulips!

Such a super fun image to color!
I really like the font used for the pretty E367 Swirly Happy Birthday sentiment.

A close-up of the beautiful H253 Parrot Tulips:
Aren't they beautiful?!
I sure think so!!

Masculine Sympathy with IBS

Good Morning Stamping Friends!!

I am on the Inspired By Stamping Blog today, we are featuring Masculine Sympathy cards!

Like many, my least favorite type of card to create is Sympathy cards.
For me masculine ones are even harder, as it is so easy to just pick up a beautiful flower stamp set for a lady's sympathy card.

I didn't want to use flowers for a masculine one, so I decided to take out the fun Masculine Tags II set and use the fishing stamp!
I think it is a beautiful, peaceful image to use for a man's sympathy card.

The sentiment is part of the Flowers Bloom set.
Simple, yet a lot of love and meaning put into it!
