It's Your Birthday!


Gloria here from Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot. I hope everyone is doing well.
 
Today I would like to share a Birthday card I made in honor of our Pretty Cute Stamps "Let's Celebrate" challenge going on now till September 10th. To create my card I used the beer mug from Pretty Cute Stamps "Happy Hour Faces" and one of the faces as well (love that face).  I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Color Markers to color the beer mug, used a snow marker pen for the foam and cut it out by hand. The green water color circle I had in my scraps. For the arrows I used Pretty Cute Stamps "Awesome Arrows". The orange arrows I colored in with Time Holtz Distress ink and the sentiment is from Pretty Cute Stamps "Happy Hour Sentiments".
 
 


I cut the foam out a 2nd time and layered it on top so that it would pop more.
 
What I used:
 

 
Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink
Tim Holtz Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink
Spectrum Noir Markers CT3-CT2-CT1
 
Hope you can join us for the Pretty Cute Stamp "Let's Celebrate" challenge HERE.

You are my lobster!

Hello Friends!!  kel from Scraps and photoGRAFFS here sharing a fun project with you today from the Sea Ya Soon digital stamp set.


I colored this little dude up with my Copics and then added him to a super simple and super fun pattern... the checkered paper made me think of a shrimp boil or something and made me really hungry lol!


And I absolutely love the sentiment... Hubby and I are huge fans of Friends and share quotes with each other all the time, so this is gonna get snuck into his locker at work one day for him to find!!  haha!!

Happy Purrrthday!


Hello everyone! It's Amber here, today I'm sharing this fun Birthday themed card featuring Pretty Cute Stamps Cattitude Stamp Set, Fur Baby Stamp Set, & Avery Elle's Double Pierced Rectangles Elle-Ments Die. You can check out the two little 4' x 6'  sets I used below. I used one of the adorable cats and the cutest little sentiment from the Cattitude stamp set to create a little scene for my card front. I started by die cutting a pierced rectangle out of some white cardstock before stamping my images. I stamped the adorable little cat in the middle of my die cut piece and then added my "Happy Purrrthday!" sentiment right below. I colored in my little cat and created a dotted background with some Spectrum Noir Markers. Once colored I set it aside to work on the rest of my card base. 


I took the largest die from Avery Elle's Double Pierced Rectangles Elle-Ments Die and die cut a large rectangle out of some colorful patterned paper from Close To My Heart. I adhered it to my white card base and started working on the teal frame that would surround my stamped panel. To create my teal frame I die cut two different sized pierced rectangles out of some teal cardstock, laying the smaller die inside the larger die to create the frame. Once die cut I removed the smaller inside piece of teal cardstock and adhered my stamped panel piece in its place. 


For the inside of my I used I die cut another pierced rectangle out of teal cardstock and stamped it with the "You PAWSitively wonderful!" sentiment from the 4' x 6' Fur Baby set. I also stamped four little paw prints around my sentiment to dress it up a little more.


I hope you enjoyed my card today! Thanks for visiting!
Supplies: Carstock- White & Teal / Patterned Paper- Close To My Heart / Pretty Cute Stamps Clear Stamp Sets- Cattitude & Fur Baby / Memento Ink Pad - Tuxedo Black / Spectrum Noir Markers / Double Pierced Rectangles Elle-Ments Die- Avery Elle

Bushels of Fun Card


Hi everyone, Tasha here to share with you this fun Fall themed card created with the "Bushels of Fun" stamp set.



This set has an awesome selection of images and sentiments that can be used year-round and are just perfect for the upcoming fall season.


For my project, I used the bushel basket filled with apples, some individual small apples and two of the small facial expressions stamps.


The "Hope you have Bushels of Fun!" sentiment is embossed in gold and looks great layered on matching apple print paper.



I hope you enjoy this project and are inspired to create a fun fall card with the "Bushels of Fun" stamp set.

Have a wonderful day,

A Little LOVE Inspiration


Greeting Pretty Cute fans! It's my turn to give you a little clean and simple inspiration!

I am still loving the Shine Bright and Beavers in Love digis! I LOVE animal stamps and am always a sucker for a witty sentiment. I decided to go clean and simple because sometimes you don't want your images competing with the background. Stop by the store and join in on our current challenge! Also, you should join our Facebook Group Pretty Cute Projects to share your projects and hang out with other Pretty Cuties.

Happy Crafting!

Using Digital Stamps on a Digital Project Life Page!

Karla here today! I love using my Project Life app on my iPad, and it was so easy to incorporate the cute digital stamp files from Pretty Cute Stamps onto my page, that I just had to share!

I first opened my saved digital page in the PicMonkey program and then choose to embellish with the PNG versions of the digital stamps I wanted to use by choosing to add an overlay by clicking on the butterfly icon. This allowed me to layer on the PCS Digital Stamps to create a scene. I adjusted the opacity of some of the stamps so they were lighter, like the sand dollars on the card background on the top left and the seashell which looks like it's inside the jar on the bottom right!


I love the way I can change the colour of the stamps and even turn them to fit just the way I want on my page. The Splish Splash card reminds me of hand stitching. You could easily embellish single cards this way and print them with your photos to put in a physical album as well!

Here's a look at the page when I first created it in the PL app, with the journaling cards I chose. I typed my journaling on one of the cards and left the others blank so I could embellish with PCS digital stamps.

Here's a look at the stamp sets I used. The sentiments are so awesome!
