Wine Time!

I have had such fun with this stamp set Happy Hour Faces, from Pretty Cute Stamps.  As you can see I created a wine clock to coordinate with the sentiment, Oh, look it's wine o'clock.

I needed mini glasses of wine so I used clear shrink paper to achieve that.  It was super easy, I stamped with Versa Mark on the clear shrink paper, colored with permanent markers, cut them out, and then used my heat gun to shrink them.

Bottoms UP!

Magician Toby!

This is a new digi stamp, released yesterday from Some Odd Girl.  I had so much fun coloring him and then creating this clear shaker tag.

You will notice that there are a few SOG Sorbet Sequins in there, plus I used stamp set Big Wishes for the sentiment and the cupcakes and slices of cake, that I made into miniatures with shrinky paper. I am loving this entire shaker tag - I'm thinking more will be coming!

You are my Sunshine!

Let the SUNSHINE in!  The winters 'blahs' have me so I decided to create my own sunshine.  I had fun incorporating the stamp set Sunshiny Day from Pretty Cute Stamps into a Valentine card.  It may not scream love, but then sometimes we need something a little more low key.

Love Challenge at Pretty Cute Stamps!

Come join the stamping challenge at Pretty Cute Stamps and get a head start on your Valentine's day cards.  The challenge runs from January 16 - February 6 and the theme is love.  

I used the stamp set Eskimo Kisses which is a great set for love or winter cards.  I wanted the fur to look dimensional so I used Stickles on each of the kids, sparkly Icicle on the girl and Picket Fence (off white) on the boy.  Sweet and simple card perfect for some kids I know!

Frenchie Kody!

Frenchie Kody is such a great stamp set from Some Odd Girl.  This is my very first time trying the 'no line' stamping/coloring method.  I think practice is in order for me to feel comfortable doing this, but I am pleased with this card.

REMEMBER there is still time to join in on the challenge at our FB community!  Challenge runs until January 19, 2016, theme ANYTHING ODD GOES!

Whoop Whoop!

A perfect birthday celebration includes combining Pretty Cute Stamps sets Happy Hour Faces, and Taco Time! You will be inking up these two sets often if you have friends and family who enjoy birthdays with a bit of a 'party' atmosphere.

I used some glossy accents on my drink for a true glass appearance, and some sequins for the added party feel.  Also, I just love this card base, from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.
