More BoBunny...

Hi there! Well I decided to try to create a card with absolutely no stamping at all. That was pretty hard for me. :)  Anyway, I used more BoBunny products - stickers, chipboard and paper and this is what I came up with. 

I can't believe the weekend is over already. I hope you have a great week! Thanks for all of your nice comments. They make my day!

supplies: BoBunny paper, chipboard, stickers, Hobby Lobby kraft paper.

Hello! and a Back to School Layout

Hello! I had a little time for stamping this weekend so I decided to create a layout and a card for the Hero Arts challenge this month. I created this layout of my niece and nephew. They just started school last week. I used the Simply the Best stamp set to stamp the apples, colored them with copics, added Glossy Accents and cut them out for embellishments. I also used the "Rember this" circle stamp from the Travel set (blog candy from my sweet friend Virginia) and added a title. I used the Hero Hues paper (orange) for the first time. I ran it through my CB with a die cut and it cuts like butter. :)  The row of apples is actually ribbon from TPC Studio to match the paper. Cute! Sorry about the wonky pic. I didn't have much light to work with so I had to place the layout on the seat of a folding chair. :)  My niece, Hannah, loves to hold up the peace sign in all her photos now. Cracks me up.

On to the card now. I love the Silly scape stamp, but boy is it a lot of work to color like this! :)  I used the Hero Hues paper to make this notecard. I used TH distress inks to make the sky look more sunny at the top. I also used tumbled glass to ink around the clouds and I added some Glossy Accents on the balloon. The clouds are die cuts and the balloon is a stamp I colored with Copics - they're both from PaperTrey Ink. I used the Hello! greeting from one of my older HA stamp sets - the 2x3 Home set.

Thanks for reading this long post and for all your sweet comments. I really appreciate them!

BoBunny leftovers...

Hello! I had some left over paper from a scrapbook layout that I made, so I decided to make this card. Most of the products are from BoBunny, except the stamp is Hero Arts. I love the BoBunny chipboard flowers and butterfly. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great week!

Girly, You Rock!

Happy Thursday!  I picked up some BoBunny papers along with some of their stickers and chipboard at my local Archivers a few weeks ago and decided to create a layout of my niece, Grace.  I love this pic of Grace! I used the PaperTrey Ink Signature Greetings stamp set by Dawn McVey to add a small title to the page. It says, "Girly, You Rock!" and I thought that was fitting for this photo.  :)  It's hard to see in the picture, but I used the Tim Holtz distress tool for the edges of the orangish/yellow paper and I even did some faux stitching on this layout.

Thanks for stopping by. It's almost the weekend!  Is anyone getting the feeling that I live for the weekends?  :)

Circles and more circles

I created this card for the Hero Arts contest this month. I decided to try something different. I was trying to use up some of the scraps on my craft desk.  This is what I came up with.  It's a little wacky, but I think I like it. :)  What do you think?

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

Do you love Vellum?

I finally tried stamping and embossing on vellum. I've been wanting to try this for awhile, but haven't had the time. I love the Hero Arts big flower stamp. It looks great on vellum. I added pink for the background to make the flower pop!  Sorry for the bad photo. I didn't have much natural light when I took the pic.

It's Thursday already. Hope you're all having a great week! I'm ready for the weekend, but then again, I always am. :)

More purple

Hello. Another weekend, come and gone. Sigh....  Here's a card I created for my niece's birthday coming up in September. Apparently I'm stuck on purple.  I used 3 different Hero Arts stamps, Copic markers and Basic Grey paper. All of my favorite things. :)  Hope you have a great week!

Well Hello Hydrangea...

Hello! Just another quick post. I created this card using the Hero Arts hydrangea stamp. I love this stamp. I used Copic markers to color it and then cut it out. I also used TH distress inks for the edges of the Basic Grey paper. I finished it off with some ribbon, pearls and a fiskars border punch. The hydrangea is pop-dotted on the card to give it some dimension. Lots of purple, but I still think I like it. :)

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the sweet comments!  I really appreciate them.
