You're A Good Seed

Hi Stamp Pals!
I just had to get out the new stamp set, Grow and stamp up the cute
seed pack because it is coming up on that time of year for planting!
How cute would it be, to buy a few seed packets and maybe a cute new
pair of gardening gloves and wrap them up for a gift, along with this card
for your favorite friend who loves to garden?  What a fun little "just because" gift!

I popped up a few of the seed packets for dimension and added the gardening tools
as a cute embellishment.
All images were stamped with Lawn Fawn Black Licorice ink and colored with
Spectrum Noir markers.
The cute patterned paper is from Echo Park.

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy Stamping :)

Swimming by to say

Hello friends. Larissa here today with a fun birthday shaker card. I am using two different stamp sets. Sea Ya Soon and Sea Life Sentiments.

 To start I die cut a circle out of the card front. I sponged Distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire on the card front and circle. Blending the three colors together so there are no harsh lines in between colors. I stamped the whale and turtle on a piece of white cardstock and colored each with Copic markers.
I cut each image out with a pair of detailed scissors. I used my Memory Keepers Fuse Tool to make a shaker window to fit in the circle. I added the whale and different colors of sequins in the window before sealing it up.
I then adhered the card together with Scor-Tape.
I added the sentiment to the card front and then popped the little turtle up with some foam tape.

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

Hello, Spring!!!

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 Spring Flowers stamp set.
When I came up with the plan for this card, I envisioned a few flowers around the bottom corner. I stamped a few of the flowers with white ink and added white embossing powder. With the heat gun, I heated the powder until it melted. I used a variety of ZIG markers to color in the images. A simple sentiment is stamped. The panel is attached to a bright cardstock and attached to the card base.
As I am here typing this post, I look at the card and am thinking I might go back and add a few more images. Possibly covering the entire front.
Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Easter Cuties Cards!

I hope everyone enjoyed a very lovely Easter! Karla here today, and our family is having Easter dinner today, so I thought I'd share these cute cards I made for my daughter's preschool teachers using the adorable Easter Cuties stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps!

I used some pretty spring papers as my background and layers and then stamped my images on white cardstock circles before colouring with alcohol based markers. I masked some of my images and fussy cut around the parts that extended outside the circle. I just hand drew in a line for the grass and added a bit of marker shading. The little paintbrush is from the School Planner stamp set, which was just the perfect size for these cuties! I always love finding new ways to combine elements of the stamp sets that I have. There are a few more small icons in these planner sets that would also be perfect accents!

Here I used the mix and match sentiments in the Easter Cuties set to decorate the insides and envelopes of my cards. My daughter was very excited to give these to her teachers!

I hope you are enjoying your Easter Monday! Be sure to check out our current challenge, Anything But A Card! Have an awesome week :)

Good Things

Hello everyone! It's Amber here, today I'm sharing a fun little inspirational card featuring stamps from the Work It stamp set pictured below. You can also find it in the Pretty Cute Stamps Shop HERE.

I used the adorable little bear in his work out clothes lifting weights and the "Good things come to those who SWEAT" sentiment for my card today. I started my card by layering two different types of patterned paper.  I used the colorful raindrop patterned paper as my background layer and layered a piece of blue patterned paper right over it. I stamped my image onto some white cardstock, colored it, and matted it with some pink patterned paper. Once my stamped piece was matted I adhered it right over my first two layers right in the center. To finish my card I stamped my sentiment towards the bottom right of my card base.  

The colorful raindrop patterned paper from Basic Gray goes so well with this image and sentiment. Don't you think? The raindrops could be drops of sweat instead of rain. It was so weird typing that, never thought I'd be blogging about sweat. I hope you enjoyed my card today and Thanks for visiting!

Supplies: Cardstock- White / Patterned Paper- Basic Gray's Fresh Florals / Pretty Cute Stamps Clear Stamp Set- Work It / Ranger Archival Ink Pad- Jet Black / CTMH Ink Pad- Outdoor Denim / CTMH Markers

Hoppy Easter

Hi crafty friend! 

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

I would like to share an Easter card I made for my post over at Pretty Cute Stamps blog.  For this card I used the Pretty Cute Stamps Hoppy Easter stamp set and colored it in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Color Markers. For the sky and grass background I used Tim Holtz distress inks.
After stamping the image I covered it with molotow masking liquid and than added the blue ink for the sky followed with green for the grass. Once I had the background they way I wanted it I rubbed off the masking liquid.
PCS stamp I used:

Also don't forget that we have a Anything but a Card challenge going on now till April 9th. For more info and to link up click HERE.

Work It! Card

I had some fun using the Work It! stamp set this weekend creating this card for a friend that's been working hard losing some weight. I'm hoping this little greeting will add a little pep to her step so she keeps up with her progress!

Isn't this little work-out bunny so cute....she almost seems blissful which is what I would certainly love when working out, HA!

I used my copics to color her in and different patterned papers to mat. I found some pink gel star stickers in my stash which seemed the perfect add-on to make the card complete. 

Wishing you some creative time this weekend, thanks for stopping by!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

What a fun day!! 
 Did you remember to wear green?  Did you pinch anyone, or get pinched yourself for not wearing green??  Do you have something fun planned for a meal that's a green food??
Whatever you do today, may the luck of the Irish be with you!
Even though this card looks like a St. Patrick's Day card, I actually
made it into a birthday card.
You have to use this cute leprechaun from the Lucky set for more than just once a year!

I paired him up with the new Rainbow set for the perfect lucky combo!
I also used the grass from the new Spring Flowers set, it was just right and actually fit perfectly across the bottom of my card.

For the inside, I stamped the birthday greeting from the Leapin' Lizards set along with a lucky clover from the Lucky set.
You can find all of the sets I used to create this fun card in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store.
For more details about this card, please visit my blog,
Happy Stamping!
Janna :)
