Always & Forever Valentine Card!

Happy Monday friends! Karla here to share a Valentine card I created using the Be Mine stamp set and my Cricut Explore. I wanted to create an ombré effect on my heart banner and borders, so I layered on two pink Prismacolor Markers and the Colorless Blender pen. I love the extra depth this gives the diecuts! Since these are clear stamps I was able to easy bend the Always and Forever to fit my diecut banner. I simply placed it on my clear acrylic block in a semi circle and it stayed in place perfectly! The two tiny hearts are from the set as well.

I created a subtle background on my white cardstock using stamps from the same set in a light pink ink. This set has so many awesome sentiments and images that are not just for Valentines! I absolutely love the lips!! 

Inside, I stamped a sentiment along with another kiss.

Here's a look at this lovely stamp set:
Be Mine 
Thanks so much can for joining me today! I'd love to know if you're working on Valentines right now!

You color my world with COLOR.

Hi, and Happy Sunday!

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

I would like to share a card I made using combining two stamp sentiments from PCS Color My World stamp set. The original sentiment says " You fill my day with color". I used the misti stamping tool to stamp the sentiment as well as the crayon box image. I stamped the image with Ranger archival ink first, than stamped right onto of it with VersaMark ink and than added some clear embossing powder. To color in the image I used Zig clean color real brush markers.
 What I used:
 Zig clean color real brush markers
Recollections Enamel Dots
Ranger archival ink
 VersaMark ink 

  Thank you for stopping by and hope you can play along with us in the Love challenge.

Slothsome Day

Hello everyone! It's Amber here! Today I'm sharing a cute little blue, pink, and gray card that would be perfect for a friends Birthday or even Valentines Day. I used this adorable sloth clinging to the tree as my main focal image and the sweet "Have a SLOTHSOME Day" sentiment from the set below. You can also find it in the Pretty Cute Stamps Shop HERE

I wanted my background to be to be fun and colorful so once I had my image stamped I masked it off and misted the entire background with two different mists. I started off by misting my background from far away and then moved a little closer to the cardstock and splattered a few different spots with the same two mists. 

To add a little more dimension to my card I layered the cute little sloth two times. First I layered his entire body and then went back and layered just his head. You can see a close up above. Thanks for visiting! 

Supplies: Cardstock- White & Speckled Gray / Patterned Paper- Basic Grays Fresh Cuts Collection / Pretty Cute Stamps Clear Stamp Set- Slothsome / Ranger Archival Ink Pad- Jet Black / CTMH Markers / Tattered Angles Baseboard Mist- Gerber & Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist- Navy Blue / Stapler / Pop Dots

I Woof You!

Hello, Debbie here...I think the last time I posted we were having freezing weather and snow. Today it is supposed to get up in the low 50's and then snow all weekend...crazy!

Today I am sharing a Valentine card I made for the Pretty Cute Stamps blog using their Doggone It! stamp set.

The cute puppy is colored with Tombow's Irojiten Colored Pencils and blending with Gamsol.

Have a great day and I hope you enjoy this Valentine card.

Super Awesome!!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!!  
Amy here today sharing a super cute card I made using Superheroes!!!

Superheroes is one of my favorite stamp sets, I just had to make another card using it.  For this card I used my copic markers to color up this little superhero boy, I thought the perfect superhero colors are blue, red and yellow.  I used some of my die cuts to make the stitching on the card stock and to cut out the center hole for the red. I stamped one of the sentiments from the set on the white circle.

I hope you have enjoyed some inspiration today and to find this set and other fun stamp sets please visit us at Pretty Cute Stamps and don't forget to join us for our monthly challenges!!!

You are my SUNSHINE!

For some of us with the winter 'blahs' a little sunshiny day would do wonders!  I love this stamp set which is called Sunshiny Day.  It's full of fabulous sentiments that you will use over and over, and four super cute sun stamps.

I thought it would be fun to incorporate the stamp set into something for Valentine's Day.  Although it doesn't scream pinks and reds, hearts and love, it could still be used for your sweetheart.

Be sure to visit the store and check out what's new this month!

Happy Crafting,

I woof you!

In July, I rescued a dog, which we renamed to her birth name, Pepper.
She is perfect!
And, I can finally admit that I am in LOVE with her!  
(Insert big, cheesy smiles here.)

Pretty Cute Stamps has several Petastic Stamp sets
to honor the canine or feline in your life!

Here, I used Fur Baby and 
to create two fun pet cards.

This one showcases the punny sentiments.
I can just hear you barking for joy!

This one is rather sweet...and girlie.

So, are you a dog lover? or cat lover?
We want to hear!

Oh, a cat card you want? you go!
I guess I'm a dog lover!!

Come visit me (Dawn) at my blog,
Sunnyside Up sometime soon!

Doggone It! I Woof You!

I had some fun playing around this afternoon using the Doggone It! stamp set today. This little guy turned out pretty cute! I kept it pretty simple and just colored him in with my copics and stamped the sentiment right underneath his belly. Matting, a button, some heart stickers and some ribbon and I was done!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are able to find some time to be creative this weekend!

"You are so full of AWESOMENESS"

Hi crafty friends, Joann here today on this lovely Saturday sharing a thank you card using of my favorite stamp sets from Pretty Cute Stamps! The Many Thanks stamp set is full of so many wonderful thank you sentiments!  

Here is today's card...

I used a stencil with some Spun Sugar Distress Ink to add a little detail behind my butterfly. I then used a butterfly die to cut out 2 butterflies out of some pattern paper and vellum and hand stitched it to my card with some black thread.

Taking my Pretty Cute Stamps Many Thanks stamp set, I white heat embossed it onto some black cardstock and added it to my card and finished it off by adding a few die cut hearts and sequins.

Well that's it, I hope you enjoyed today's card. As always don't forget to stop by Pretty Cute Stamps shop to pick up this fabulous stamp set!

Have a fabulous day!

Hi Valentine!

Hi Everyone!
Are you in the Valentine making mood yet?  I think Valentine cards are
so fun to make and this one was no exception!  I used the fun Doggone It! set and accessorized using the Be Mine set.  You can find both of these cute sets in the Pretty Cute Stamps store.
I decided to go unconventional and color this cute little fella up in Valentine red using Spectrum Noir markers.  Just for fun I added on glasses :)  The greeting is stamped and heat embossed onto a die-cut slide and attached with sparkly ribbon.  Puffy hearts were just the right touch to finish it off.

Inside I used the same die-cut slide for the sentiment and stamped a few hearts.

Thank you for visiting and Happy Stamping!

I only have EYES for you!

Hello friends. Larissa here today with a Valentine card for you.
I used two stamp sets for this card. I used Be Mine and Jawsome.

I started off stamping the shark image from Jawsome on a piece of white cardstock and colored it with my Copic markers.
I used: C1, C3, C5.
I then stamped the glasses from Be Mine over her eyes.

I stamped the envelope image and colored it using Copic markers R24, R35, R46. I used my Exacto knife and cut a slit in the shark to be able to slide the envelope right in.
I went around the glasses with my Spica glitter pen. It is hard to see of course in the picture. 

I used a few sheets of glitter paper and added a piece of glitter ribbon in a bow across the bottom of the card. To finish it off I added a few black sequins.

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

PAWSitively Wonderful

Hello, Pretty Cute Stamp fans! Hope you are having a fabulous week! I am excited to share my project with you today!

I am working with the adorable Doggone It and Fur Baby stamp sets!

These dogs are 'barking' to be a part of a scene card! I used a diecut rectangle to create the scene. Using distressed inks, I blended the ink to make the sky and grass. The dog and dog bowl images are stamped and colored onto cardstock. The images are cut out and attached to the scene. The scene card is attached using foam dots to the card base. A few cloud die cuts are added to the scene. A sentiment is stamped and embossed in white on a black banner. The banner is attached to the card.
Thank you for stopping by today!

Snowmies Scrapbook Layout!

Karla here today to bring you a scrapbook layout I created with my Cricut Explore and Pretty Cute Stamps! One of my favourite things about Lisa's stamps are the fabulous sentiments included with each set!

I was inspired to create this page from a Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine layout on Pinterest.  I decided to design the layout in Design Space, and then when I was ready to make it, it was really quick!  If you want to use this layout yourself, here's the link to my file in Design Space .

My background paper is from the Simple Stories Snow Fun paper pack, the woodgrain paper is from Carta Bella and the banners are cut from BoBunny Sleigh Ride paper. I used the adorable snowman from the Snowmies Stamp set by PCS and used the sentiments included in this set on my layout as well as directly on my photos!

The Snowman from the stamp set was stamped on watercolour paper and I used Distress and Tombow Markers to colour him in. I love the way adding a stamp lets you colour coordinate your image to match your photos!

Here's a look at the Snowmies Stamp set:
Thanks so much for joining me today! Don't forget there is a new challenge that just started this week where you can share your projects using Pretty Cute Stamps
