Fireworks Rock

Hello, friends. Larissa here with you today with a 4th of July card. Today I am using two different sets. 
I stamped the little boy on a piece of 110 lb white cardstock and colored him with my Copic markers. I then used Red and Blue ink and stamped the fireworks all over the card front.
I added stickles to the fireworks to finish them off.
As you can see I also made the glasses on the little boy into sunglasses.
I used glossy accents over the top of them to make them shine.

 Super simple card. 
Perfect for July 4th.

Don't forget we have a challenge going on. Come join us and you could win a GC. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

The Whole Box of Crayons!

Hi there, Karla here today! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! I wanted to share this watercolour background card with you today using the Pretty Cute Stamps set Color My World.

I used Distress Stains in the new Mermaid Lagoon and Citrus Twist along with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink on a craft sheet to watercolour a background before layering my stamped images and sentiment on top. I really love this sentiment! After I stamped it I cut banner ends and popped it up in the center with foam dots.

I paper pieced the crayon box and crayon with various papers from 6x6 paper pads and then used Distress Markers to create shadows around the edges. How adorable are these faces?!!

 Inside, I added another sentiment and two more cute crayons! 

Here's a look at everything that's in the stamp set:
Color My World

Pretty Cute Stamps Anything Goes Challenge

Happy Saturday, everyone! Welcome to the very first Pretty Cute Stamps Monthly Challenge. YAY! The theme this first month is Anything Goes. So, we want to see any project you create using Pretty Cute Stamps. My wonderful Design Team and I have created some fun inspiration projects for you. First, I'll show you those, and then I'll tell you more about the challenge.

For my project I created a SWEET little card that is perfect for summer:

I got the sweet ice cream cones and the sentiment from the Just Chill stamp set. I paper pieced the treats with some pretty patterned paper I had in my stash. The faces and hears are from the Let's Spoon stamp set. Those faces fit perfectly on the ice cream cones. I added some jute twine and a button, and my little card was all done. :)

Tag, You're It!

Hi Stampers, Janna here and I have some super cute gift tags to show you 
today using the Pen Pals set.
I just thought the adorable snail in this set would be so fun to make up some cute and quick tags.

I colored the snail's bodies with Spectrum Noir markers and paper-pieced their shells.

I glued the bottom of the snail to the tag, but popped up the upper portion of the snail for some dimension.  I applied some liquid glass under the snail for the "snail trail" :)
These were a lot of fun to make, if you haven't tried paper piecing yet, I encourage you to
give it a try!

Thank you for popping in, and Happy Stamping!

Pen Paling Along

Hey beautiful crafters. I'm back with a stationery set to share with you. I am having so much fun making these goodies for my fun pen gals. 

Basically I just stamped the desired images from The Write Stuff Stamp set and colored them in with Prismacolor Colored Pencils. These will be going out this week to a special someone. 

Hope you beautiful crafters are having a great week!!!

Special Delivery

Good morning, friends. Larissa here with you today using this adorable

I am in love with this little mailbox. Reminds me of a show my daughter use to watch when she was little Blues Clues. :) 
I stamped the image onto a piece of white cardstock and colored it using my Copic Markers. I then stamped a few of the envelope stamp a few times and cut them out. I adhered them to the different areas of the card front. I also stamped a few of the hearts and postage stamp.
The sentiments are from the same set.
To finish the card front I added a few red and blue sequin and a bow made of twine.
I matted the white card front to a piece of navy blue cardstock then adhered it to a white cardbase. 

Hope you enjoyed my post today.
Have a wonderful Wednesday friends. Until next time...

Superhero Lunchbox Notes!

Karla here today bringing you some lunchbox notes I made for my 8 year old daughter using the Superheroes and Super Sentiments stamp sets from Pretty Cute Stamps!

I used Prismacolor Markers to colour in these 'Super' adorable superheroes and then I cut them out and put them on paper from a 6x6 Little Yellow Bicycle paper pack- perfect for this scene! I added some of the stars included in the set - I love how beautifully these stamp! and a sentiment on the front and then another on the back (see below).

Here's a look at the fronts and backs of each card!

My daughter was super pleased to get these in her lunch! Here's a look at the sets I used:

Super Sentiments

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you have a super-duper week and enjoy some crafty fun! Don't forget to pop by the Pretty Cute Stamps store to check out all the sets that were included in last week's new release!
