Hey, Little Sailor

Hi, Henriette here sharing a clean and simple card I've made using the cute Little Sailor set and the flag on the Sailmate set from the July release.

I colored all the digital elements in photoshop. 
After coloring I rotated the flag and duplicate it and resized the boat so that it would look like a toy. 
That is the benefit of using digital images, you can resize, duplicate and rotate them so easily.

For the backpanel and stitching on the sentiment I used dies from My favorite things.
This would make a cute card for a little boy.

I hope you have enjoyed my post. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Henriette.

You´re a lifesaver!

Hi everyone!!

Noe here from SCN in a hot summer day... I hope everyone is doing well.

Would you like a bit of summer inspiration? July comes to an end, we will receive August with a big smile, there is still a time to enjoy the summer !! 

Here is my newest card:

Stamps designed by Lisa this month are so beautiful that allow us to make a lot of fun summer projects !!

For my card I used the followings Digi Stamps Sets from PCS Shop:

I made my background using Pan Pastels and I placed "Ligthhouse" Digi Stamp randomly over my card, then I painted them with my Kuretake Watercolors Markers to give a blurred effect.

On a piece of cardstock I printed my Lifesaver Digi Stamp and the sentiment, I´ve painted with my Spectrum Noir and finally placed it in the center of my card with foam tape... Easy to make, isn´t it??

Hope you like it!!

Remember that you can still participate in our "By the Sea" Challenge !!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Lizard Love

Hello friends. Larissa here today with a little Lizard Love.
I stamped the two images from the set Leapin Lizards onto a white card front. I then colored them using Copic markers. I stamped the two sentiments from the same set as well. I didn't add sequins or twine this time. I was going for a more masculine card as well as keeping it plain and simple. I matted the card front on a piece of Perfect Plum cardstock and then adhered it all to a white card base.

Products Used:
Pretty Cute Stamps Leapin Lizards Clear Stamp Set

Copic Markers
Simon Says Stamps Intense Black Ink
Stampin Up Perfect Plum Cardstock
White Cardstock

Don't forget the clear stamp sets are no longer in production. Which means once they are sold out they will no longer be making more. So if you are wanting this set act now and order it. You won't be sorry on this or any of the clear stamps for that matter.

Have a wonderful day friends.

You're Retro

I made a card with stamps from the PCS stamp set called "Game On" and masked the text. The starry background are made with stamps from the set as well, stamped with Distress inks. I really like this set with all the amazing stamps and sentiments for the gamer and I have plenty of those in my family.

And there is still time for our challenge:

Life's a Beach

Hi crafty friends.

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

  I would like to share a fun little beach card with you. The sandcastle and sentiment are both from PCS Digital Life's a Beach stamp set that was this month. The cute little crab is from PCS Digital Oh, Crab! stamp set that was released last month. I colored the sandcastle and crab with Spectrum Noir markers. I used Tim Holtz distress ink on the circle that the sentiment is on.

Deepest Thanks

Hello friends!  This is kel from Scraps and photoGRAFFS here today sharing a card that was super fun to make!!  Today's card is using the DS219- Sublime Digital Stamp set in the Pretty Cute Stamps Shop.  I used the png files to create a scene and then colored up the card!!


I FINALLY got my distress inks in and got to play with them on this card for the first time!  I'm pretty happy with how it came out!!  I had printed a couple of these scenes out just in case I messed up, so cut one of them out to make a mask so I could color up the background without coloring up the sub and the fishies!!  And it worked really well too!!  Love it!!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!

You Are Soda-Mazing

Hello everyone! It's Amber here, today I'm sharing this fun colorful card featuring Pretty Cute Stamps Snack Time Stamp Set. I just love all the fun images and sentiments included in this adorable set. The images in this set are perfect for creating friendship cards or fun cards for your loves ones.

I used the adorable cup with the happy face and the "You Are Soda-Mazing" sentiment to create a little scene for my card front. I started by cutting a white piece of cardstock slightly smaller then my coral card base. Once I had my white cardstock cut to the size I wanted I lightly drew a pencil line across the bottom so I could easily line up all three of my cup images and started stamping. I started from the middle and worked my way out, so I stamped the first cup in the middle of my cardstock and then stamped one cup to the right and one cup to the left. I started from the middle and worked my way out that way I could evenly space all three of the cups. To finish off my little scene I stamped the "You Are Soda-Mazing" sentiment below my images and colored the cups and background with some Spectrum Noir Markers. 

I hope you enjoyed my card today! Thanks for visiting!
Supplies: Cardstock- Light Coral & White / Pretty Cute Stamps Stamps Set- Snack Time / Tsukineko Memento Dye Ink Pad- Tuxedo Black / Spectrum Noir Markers- CR1, CR2, CR11, GG2, BT2

Sea Critter Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Tasha here to share with you this sea critter birthday card created with the Sea Ya Soon, Sea Life Sentiments, and Sublime stamp sets. I’m totally in love with these cute sea critter images; it was hard to decide on which one to use for this card.

I selected the fun jellyfish and colored it in with PhotoShop. This critter looks awesome with the light purple gradient colors. The images were printed on bright white 80lb cardstock and framed with a rounded stitched die. I also used Wink of Stella to make it shimmer and glossy accents on the starfish and bubbles.

For the sentiment, I used the scripted “Happy Birthday” and embellished it with the super cute little starfish. I also used an aqua font color to stick with the summer/sea theme and added bubbles from the Sublime digital stamp set. 

Lastly, I chose a multi-colored pattern paper for the base. I love the way the gold foil shines in the light!

I hope you enjoyed my summer sea critter birthday card!

Also, remember there's still time to participate in the "By the Sea" challenge!

Have a wonderful day,

Sunshine and Raindrops Card!

Karla here today to share a rainy day card - since we've had soooo much rain over the past week that I feel like we are swimming! I'm crossing my fingers the sun will come out this week ;)

I stamped and paper pieced the cute rubber boots, puddle and sunshine from the Pretty Cute Stamps Rain or Shine  stamp set, layering them on top of my diecut raindrop background. I stamped the sentiment, from the same stamp set, directly onto my background.

I stamped the Rainbow stamp on white cardstock and coloured it in with coloured pencils before layering this adorable little Froggy Umbrella diecut from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons and a cute little diecut rain cloud. I used some Cosmo Cricket paper that I had in my stash for all the paper piecing and diecuts so everything would be coordinated - and I could feel like I was using up some older papers!

Inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Rainbow stamp set, using a Hero Arts Ombre Ink pad, and paper pieced an umbrella from the Rain or Shine stamp set.

Here's a look at the super cute stamp sets I used:
Rain or Shine 


I had so much fun creating this bright card!
