You Make Me Giggle!!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!!  
Amy here today sharing a super cute card I made using Hamster Cutie from Pretty Cute Stamps!!!

I just love this fun stamp set.  I colored up this very cute hamster using my Copic Markers, I used a few dies to make my fun outside background with the grass, sky, and the balloons he is holding.  I have him holding balloons but on this stamp set you can have him hold a cupcake, a heart or even a present, which make this set fun to use making all different types of cards from a Christmas card to a Valentines card.

Treats from a pal

 A swap pal of mine gifted me with these marvelous airmail post it notes. 
They fold up and create a darling paper to write a note.

To show her gratitude, 
I made this postcard that utilizes one of the post it notes!
It is secured with a Removable Glue Dot ® and tucked in behind
this Pretty Cute Fellow from the Pen Pals 2 set by Pretty Cute Stamps.
I propped up the image using foam tape at the top of the pen and near the feet.
Then the air mail note slides into this space behind his body.

Behind the note is a secret message!
So, even without the note,
my swap pal has something to look at that is pretty.

Don't you just LOVE washi tape? 
I do!!  Adding a big of pearl bling makes it even more special!

Thanks for checking out the blog today! 
Come see what is in the air over at my blog,

"The Holidays Really Bite, Sometimes"

Hi friends, Happy Saturday! Joann here today sharing a fun Christmas card with you using the Pretty Cute Stamps "Gingerbread Kisses" stamp set!

Here is my card...

This stamp set comes with 3 adorable images and some fun sentiments. Now before I start I am not the greatest with water coloring, this was my first! I took some Versafine Onyx Black ink and stamped my image using the third generation, that way the lines weren't so dark. I used a water brush and some distress ink to color my sweet images.

I finished my card by stamping a few ginger crumbs, layered my sentiment onto some black and white card stock and scattered some TCP Relish mix to add something fun. Well that is all for today thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous Saturday friends!

Here is the stamp set I used

Hi Stamping Friends!
I haven't seen too many Halloween cards, so
that is what I am bringing you today.
The little witches in the Bewitched set are so cute!
This little witch is cooking up a special brew full
of creepy crawlies and toads for you :)

The witch and cauldron have been stamped up using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored
with Spectrum Noir markers.  The sparkle was added using Stickles.  I am giving credit to my friend, Jo Rauch, for the fence idea.  She had a class that I went to and we made a card using a fence like this.  I just cut strips using an oak brown card stock, embossed them in a wood grain embossing folder and then inked over them using a chocolate ink and a finger dauber.  I snipped the ends off with decorative scissors.  The sentiment is just one of the great sayings from this cute set!
The black and gold design paper pulled the background together for this bewitching scene.
Happy Stamping!

Happy Fall! Go nuts!

Hello friends. Larissa back here with you. Today is the first day or fall. Of course our Texas weather is still hot and we won't actually see fall for awhile but it is nice to know it is coming. 
I pulled out this adorable little squirrel today to make a fall theme card. 

This is the set Nuts About You

I stamped the little squirrel on a piece of 110 lb white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. 
I then did the same with a few of the acorns. I cut each image out using my detail scissors. 

I used some different die cuts and pattern paper for the card front.
I then popped up the squirrel on a some foam tape and adhered it to the card. 

To finish the card front I added a few enamel dots. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today.
Have a wonderful day friends.

Last Day to Save!!!

Don't miss out on the savings on the September 2015 New Releases!

Paper-piecing with Thanksgiving Eats

Hello, Pretty Cute Stamps friends! Who else is ready for fall? I know that it is around the corner. I cannot wait for the weather. And most of all the food!
For today's card, I am using the new Thanksgiving Eats stamp set.
Thanksgiving Eats
I love the cute food images in this set. Perfect for coloring and even more perfect for paper-piecing!

Sometimes I have a hard time determining if certain prints go together with each other. So to make that task easier, I love using 6x6 paper pads.  To paper-piece the images, I started off stamping the images on several different prints. Once all the images are cut out, it is time to assemble the images together using the different prints. 

Did you see the new Pretty Cute Stamps Challenge? This month's challenge is to 'Include a Button'. Check out the details, HERE!
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

Superhero Birthday Pocket Pages!

Karla here today, and I'm catching up on my Project Life pages - I wanted to share these cute photos from my niece's Superhero Birthday Party! Of course, I had to dress up these pages using the Superheroes and Super Sentiments stamp sets!!

I first used my Explore to cut out the coordinating SVG outlines and then stamped the images. I used Prismacolor Markers to colour them in. I love all the different sizes of stars that come in the set! Perfect for stamping all over my journaling cards! I used the sentiments to stamp over different areas of my pages, even masking off some of the stamps to get parts of the words.

I used some of the Cricut decorations I cut for the party and added them into my pockets as well as diecutting the little stars, stamping and then colouring them.

I sure love this little superhero stamp I used below! He looks like he's having so much fun! I think it's so cool to be able to personalize the journaling cards with these stamps.

Here's a look at what's in these awesome stamp sets:

You're So Corny

Hi, and Happy Sunday!

Gloria here from Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot. I hope everyone is doing well. 

Today I would like to share a card I made using a few different PCS sets for my sentiment. When I saw the You're So Corny sentiment in the PCS "Thanksgiving Eats" stamp set I knew I wanted to make this card. The cute little candy corn is from PPPR "Candy Corn Guy Cutting Files"  and the added mustache is PPPR "Old Chap Cutting Files". I did some masking off on a few of the PCS to get the sentiment to say what I needed it to say. For the hearts I used PCS "Celebrate Today" along with PCS "Dino-Mite" and stamped them with Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.
What I used:

Thank you for stopping by today, and hope you can play along in our Include a button challenge going on now. For more info and to link up your project click HERE
