RAM Release- Puppy Love

Happy Friday!  Today is a new release for RAM stamps and I wanted to share a fun new card featuring this release.  This set has 4 new cute kiddos with darling pets!  I am featuring the one called Puppy Love



Both girl and puppy are delightful aren't they?!  So stinking cute!

I made this by printing the digital image and then coloring with my Copics.  I used YR02, YR16, Y05, G14, BG32, BG34, Y35, Y17, RV06, RV04, RV02, E21, E11, E13, E02, E00.  I cut it out and set it aside.  Then I used a white base and with a SugarPea Design Torn Strips Stencil with my Blending Brush using Peacock Feathers and Salvaged Patina. Then I stamped my sentiment from MFT Stamps Mini Messages and More.  Then, I splattered some pink ink on the front and used a few of the spots from the MFT stamps sets as well.  Finally, I placed the image using foam tape. 



I think it is so delightful and sweet.  I hope you do too!

Whale of a Time

Hey there!  I am here with a another fun card featuring Rachel Anne Miller Stamps.  Being someone who loves the ocean, this is one of my very favorite images called Whale



I had so much fun making this.  I printed out the image on white Hammermill Paper. Then I used Copics to color it.  I used the following colors:

Whale: B99, B97, B32, B12, C1
Water: BG18, BG72, BG93
Boy & Clothes: E00, E02, E11, E13, YG41, YG13, Y17, Y38, B01, B02
Stars: V05, V15, Y11, Y13, YG41, YG13, FYR1, B01, B02, RV04, RV02

Once I finished coloring the images, I added some white gel highlights.  Then I used a CDD die to cut the image out.  Then I cut the top half with scissors and set aside.  Next, I used some distress inks (Monsoon, Pistachio, and Chipped Sapphire) and Yupo paper to create a background.  then I added some white ink spritzer.  After that dried, I used some distress oxide to add color where I wanted my stars and adhered them to the backdrop.  Next, I placed my image in front of the backdrop using foam tape. This entire layer was mounted on blue cardstock followed by black, which was also cut with the CDD die. 




I think this turned out very sweet and would be perfect for a child's room. 

I hope that you like it!  In case you want to pick up some images, here is a coupon for 10% off.

Welcome Baby

Hello there!  Today is my first post as part of the RAM Stamps Design Team.  They have the cutest stamps, and you might recognize them! 


Here is my first project for the DT.  Isn't it cute!  I love the sweet critters and the I chose bright colors that might work for a gender neutral baby card. 

I used the Hanging Stars digital stamp set.  I colored it using my Copics (YG05, YG11, R22, R24, RV42, Y11, Y13, Y17, 35, Y38, BG10).  Once I colored it, I cut the white base to 4.25 X 4.  Next, I used some light green striped cardstock, cut slightly larger, than the white layer and put it behind the white.  I used a Craftin Desert Divas die for the tab along the side and then stamped the "Congratulations" sentiment from the Pink & Main Floral Wings Stamp set on that.  I adhered that and then added a layer of Cantalope cardstock behind that, cut to to 4.5 X 4.25.  I adhered all of these layers to one another using EZ Tear Tape.  Then, I mounted all that on a white base 4.75 X 4.75.  Lastly, I added a few white gel highlights. 

Here are two more looks at this card: 






What do you think?  I think they are about as adorable as can be! I hope you like them too.

Frosty Cafe

Hey there!  I am late to the game for the Coffee Hop this year over on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog.  I am recovering from a yucky round of Covid-19- 3rd time is the charm I guess.  The second bout wasn't too bad, but the odd numbers sure have been. 

Anyhoo, here is my card today. 



This card features the Frosty Cafe Stamp set from Trinity Stamps most recent release.  I used light colored copics and cut it out with the coordinating Frosty Cafe Die set.  I used some Simple Stories DP and some Pink and Main glitter for accents.  It turned out pretty cute. 

Well that's all today, a brief post.  Thanks for visiting.

A Little Joy

Hey, a quick post today using my new Create a Smile.  

My husband bought me this set in German... I don't speak German so I used sentiments from other sets.  I stamped the images and colored with Copics.  I used sentiment and paper (the red) from Lawn Fawn and the Joy sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.  




Like I said, a quick post, that's all friends, thank you for visiting.

Clean and Simple- Don't Drink and Fly

Hello!  I have one quick and easy card for you today and a safety reminder- Don't drink and Fly (or Drive)!



This card was simple to make.  I colored the images from Whimsy Stamps Going Batty set using Copics.  I put this on a sightly distressed purple background.  Then I added these embellishments and sentiment from Trinity Stamps Trick or Drink Stamp Set

Be safe and Happy Fall!
