Snowmies Watercolor Card!

Hi there crafty friends! I hope you've all had a wonderful winter break. Karla here today to share a cute snowman card with you. It has finally warmed up here a bit, but we still have snow on the ground and there are a few snowman to be seen around the neighborhood. I must say that my favourite snowman are these cute watercoloured ones that I can create in my jammies! 

I stamped the snowman and snowgirl from the Snowmies stamp set on watercolour paper and used Distress and Tombow Markers to watercolour in my images. I've been loving purple lately and decided to pull some pinks and purples from the Pink Paislee background paper for a pretty winter feeling. I used the snowy background stamp included in the set to add white heat embossed snow as a resist in the background before adding some blue watercolour.

I used some snowflake and heart stamps from the Little Llama set - there are two sizes of snowflakes in this set and I used Distress Inks to add them to my wintery scene. I added a sentiment stamp from the Snowmies set right below my snowmen and used my Cricut Explore to diecut some cool snowflakes to add to the front.

Inside, I added the outside cut to the negative snowflake I put on the front, some matching paper and a couple more snowflake stamps.

I love the fun, wintery look of this card. A few pretty sequins add some shiny glimmer as a finishing touch!

Here's a peek at the cute stamp sets I used above:

With Sugar On Top Scrapbook Layout!

Karla here today to share an 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbook layout showing our gingerbread house the girls and I created last year. The funny thing about gingerbread houses - in my experience anyways - is they never quite turn out to look like they do on the box, lol! But we sure do have lots of fun making them!

Of course, I had to use the Gingerbread House stamp set on my layout! I stamped the fun gumdrops from the set onto some white carstock that I had misted with Glimmer Mist sprays and fussy cut them out before adding some sugary Stickles. I even stamped directly onto my photo (seen above) with the awesome sentiment "Goody Goody Gumdrops". On the bottom right corner I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment above the handwritten date.

I had almost as much fun creating this layout as I did making the gingerbread house ;) You can see all the details on the products used in this layout on my blog post.

Here's a look at this cute stamp set -

Mouse Happy Birthday Card!

Hi there crafty friends! Karla popping by today to share this cute mouse birthday card from a party that my 4 year old went to last month! This adorable little mouse holding a cupcake is the Mouse Birthday digital stamp. I printed her out on white cardstock and coloured her in with Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers.

I used my Cricut to cut out the scalloped circle and cut around the digi image with a circle cutter before layering the image on my background BoBunny papers. I use the PCS Birthday Elephant digital stamp for the presents, printing them in two different sizes and using two circle punches to cut them out. A little foam tape on some of the layers gives a bit of dimension.

Some pretty sequins and some ribbon trim added the perfect birthday touches!

Inside, I used a sentiment from Mouse Birthday, printed directly onto my pink carstock.

Here's a look at these cute stamp sets:

It's Your Birthday!

Hi crafty friends Gloria here from Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot.

Today I would like to share a Birthday Gift Tag I made. The birthday cake image is from the Pretty Cute Stamps Wish Big Stamp set and the birthday sentiment is from Pretty Cute Stamps Nuts About You stamp set. I colored the birthday cake image with  Zig Clean Color markers and added some black lines to the candles. I added some glossy accents to the yellow frosting on the cake and wink of stella to the red frosting parts. For the flame of the candles I added yellow stickles.
  I colored the tag with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink and than added some water drops to it.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a great week.

Happy Halloween Treats!

Hey there crafty friends! Karla here today with some cute treat bags to share with you. My girls are so excited about Halloween, and one of the things they love to do is give out treats to their friends at this time of the year!

I wanted to make up some cute tags for the bags, so I started by making a grid in a word processing program on my computer and inserting the Halloween digital stamps and sentiments from Werewolf, Candy Faces, Bride of Frankenstein, Frankenstein's Monster, Mummy, Vampire , Zombie and My Boo. I originally made these as Lunch Box Notes, but figured they'd also work great to add to a tag. I left them uncoloured and added crayons to the treat bags so the kids could colour them after eating their candy. 'Cause you know a 4 year old is eating the candy first, lol!

I used the label feature on my computer to quickly create this sheet of labels - adding a sentiment from the Werewolf digital stamp set from Pretty Cute Stamps and typing in Erica's name below. After I stuck the stickers to the back of the tags, these cute bags were ready to tie up and head to the class party!

I thought these cute tags finished off the treat bags so nicely! 

Here's Erica all ready to celebrate. She's actually planning on being a witch for the big day but wanted to change it up for today. And, hey, when you're 4 that's just how you roll!

Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to check out the Pretty Cute Stamps Store, and if you're celebrating Halloween, I hope you have lots of spooky fun!

A Little Announcement

TGIF, everyone! I have some news to share with you. I have made the tough decision to take a break from designing new stamps for a little least through the holidays and the New Year. I just need to step back for a bit to regroup and spend time with family. This means that I will not be creating new digis for a while, and our challenges and blog hops will be suspended (after the current challenge expires). I know this is an unusual step for a business owner to take, but I really feel it's something I need to do this year. I hope you understand.

The store will stay open, of course, so you'll still be able to purchase those sets you've had on your wishlist, if you want. Be sure to stay subscribed to our newsletter, this blog, and our Facebook never know when a surprise sale may show up.

I also want you remind you that our current challenge is still going on through November 5. You can find out all of the details here...and you could win a $15 Gift Certificate to the PCS store if you participate.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and I want to wish everyone a very merry holiday season. :)
