I am so super excited to share my project with you today!  I just LOVE creating 3D paper art!

I decided to create a fun gift box for my mom, for Mother's Day!

Here is a look at the box:
Isn't it fun?!
I cut the box from my Cameo using absolutely gorgeous papers from the Fields of Joy Collection!!

A look from the top:
I used the Tag Builder Set #3 from Frantic Stamper to create my tag and the 'To:" sentiment!

I stamped the fun flower from the Flowers for Mom stamp set three times in Totally Black Ink!  I colored it with my Copics and then die cut one using the coordinating Joyful Flower Die set!  The other two layers I fussy cut!

I LOVE the layering of the flower!!

Front view:
On the front I stamped the "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment, which is part of the Flowers for Mom stamp set as well!!

On the left side I stamped the "You are simply wonderful" sentiment from the Blissful Blooms stamp set!!

And on the right side I stamped the "Thinking of you makes me smile" sentiment from the Butterfly Tangle stamp set!
I used a piece of Bright Pumpkin pattern paper to stamp my sentiments on!

Such a fun gift box!!  I can't wait to fill it for my mom!

Thanks for stopping by! 

Your next stop in the hop is the talented Vicki's blog! 

We hope you are inspired all along the way!

Some Bunny

Hello Stamping Friends!!

I'm on the Dare 2B Artzy Blog today!!

With Easter being this weekend, I thought it would be fun to use the super adorable Raggity Rabbit stamp set!!

I absolutely love the adorable rabbit stamp in this set, so I decided that the rabbit was going to be my main focus!  No sentiments or other images on the front, just this cute image!
I added a few layers of pattern paper and ribbon to add some interest!

I saved the sentiment for the inside... 
As well as the carrot image, both from the Raggity Rabbit stamp set!!

This card would be fun to give a child, even when it's not Easter! 

Check out all D2BA's products here!

You Rule!


Hello Stamping Friends!


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

When I got the Ruler die, I instantly thought it would be fun to die cut it a few times with different colored paper, to create my own background!
Isn't the background fun?!  I just love how it turned out!!

I used the Stitched Double Fishtail Labels to create the layered die cut black and white banners.  I then added the You Rule! sentiment to the white one!!

Birthday Stars


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a fun birthday card to share with you today using dies from Frantic Stamper!!


I normally always have a ton of feminine birthday cards on head, it's the masculine pile that always seems to be a little slim.

So for my card today I decided to focus on creating a masculine card!

I used the awesome Nested Stitched Stars, I die cut the largest one from the left side of my white cardstock, so that I could have a piece of pattern paper showing below!  I also then die cut one from blue cardstock to go along with the blue I was using on the card, as well as one from a piece of striped pattern paper!

For my sentiment I used awesome Script Happy die! I just LOVE the font used for this die cut sentiment!
I then stamped the "Birthday" sentiment from the All in the Family stamp set!

Have a lovely day!

Hug Time Bookmark

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's DT Dare day at Your Next Stamp!!

DT Dare is....
Book Inspiration


With this month's release of the Insanely Happy stamp set, I instantly thought about Trolls!!  My daughter has been asking for me to get her a Troll book sometime, so I thought I would take the time to surprise!  I went shopping to pick up a book!  And use this dare to create a bookmark for her!
I just love how the cute little bookmark turned out!!  She was so excited when I gave this little gift to her just because!!

I used the Cool Tag Four Die Set to create my tag shape!  I actually die cut it three times, to make the bookmark thick and sturdy!  I die cut it once with heavy white cardstock and then found two pieces of fun pattern paper to adhere to each side!

On the front, I added one of the sweet trolls from the Insanely Happy stamp set!
I stamped the Flower Ink Splatter to the top of the bookmark using Totally Teal Ink!! 

I added the "Hug Time' sentiment from the Insanely Happy stamp set, as my kids are totally into yelling "HUG TIME" occasionally, so we huddle up for a hug, thought my daughter would love that!

I also added 3 sparkly gumdrops from the Candy Land Glittered Gumdrops pack!

As I mentioned earlier, I also added a piece of pattern paper to the back side!  Again I stamped the Flower Ink Splatter, but this time I used Pink Flamingo Ink!
I  stamped the 'love you' sentiment from the new Whatnot Sentiments Nine stamp set in Black Olive Ink!!  I perfect for my daughter, that I love her!! 

So sweet!

I really like how this bookmark turned out!!

 It's release day at Your Next Stamp!!!
Are you ready?!

WARNING: This release is going to be a MAJOR cuteness overload!!!


So MANY great new stamp sets and dies being released today!!!


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

First up, I am featuring the new Sweet Humming Bird stamp set!
 I absolutely LOVE the beautiful floral image!!

I also really like the super sweet little humming bird!!
Along with the flower and humming bird, there are two sentiments.  A birthday sentiment and the sweet one I used 'Hope your day is as sweet as you."!!  I really like this sweet sentiment, so perfect for those just because cards!!!

-----

Don't quote me, as my mind does sometimes change easily, especially with such an amazing release...but I would have to say this next stamp set I am featuring is my favorite!! (But I sure love the flowery sets released as well!!)

Growing up I can remember collecting and playing with trolls!!  Then the Troll movie came out recently and both my kids (and myself!!!) fell in love with it!  I think it is so cute that Poppy loves to create cards and scrapbook!

So I am so SUPER exited to see the new Insanely Happy stamp set from YNS!  I actually did a happy dance!!

So here is the first card I created with it:
Isn't it fun?!

I colored her in with my Copics!! 

There is a coordinating Insanely Happy Die Set to match the stamp set!  Always nice to have!!
I stamped the Star Ink Splatter behind the troll in Sunflower Yellow Ink!

Such a fun and happy stamp set!!
