Hi everyone. Today starts Previews of the August Release for C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps. Here I'm using Monster Eli. He's so scary! Hahaha in a very cute and adorable way. I colored him with Copics and the Wink of Stella Clear Pen. I used some new dies, stay tuned on Release Day for details. The eyes in the background were created using one of the new dies and also By DIEzyne Dies - Stitched Circles. Oh and those enamel dots are new as well.

 To make this card even more special, I put Monster Eli on an Action Wobble! It's a spring-like adhesive pop dot....watch the video clip:

Hawt Dog

Hi everyone, here are my cards using the new "Hawt Dog" stamp set from Avocado Arts. So many options, let's begin!

Card 1: Lovin' you s'more every day.

This image is soo yummy. I colored with Copics and I used liquid applique to form the raised puffy goodness. I added a cute little heart die cut on the image, accented with Wink of Stella - Clear Pen for an added shimmer.

Card 2: You're HOT

I made a cute little tag to place on the card front. I stamped the bon fire image several times on the bottom of the tag, using a mask of the image to layer. I colored with Copics and I added some Yellow Stickles in the center of the main image. It's also popped up with dimensional pop dots. I threw in some red rhinestones for more sparkle.

Card 3: Franks alot...

Lastly, I used the hot dog image, colored with Copics. I also drew on the "ketchup" with Xmas Red Stickles. I fussy cut several of the hotdogs and layered them on top of each other. The white base is cut from a super hero die cut set. I think this kinda looks like a comic book card or something lol.

So those are my cards. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have fun with this "Hawt Dog" stamp set!

She's a very whimsical image, I mean come on, Unicorn theme! She is colored with Copic Markers and accented with the Wink of Stella Clear Pen. I kept this card pretty simple. The image is framed out with By DIEzyne Dies - Pierced Ovals. I splattered some mist on the base of the card and popped up the image with dimensionals.

DoveArt Studios - Winter Chickadee

Hello everyone. I wanted to share this image from DoveArt Studios - Winter Chickadee. It is from one of their new Christmas releases this month. I had so much fun coloring the bird. Secret - I had to google images of a snow bird to get inspired on what colors to choose. He is colored with Copics. 

I used several By DIEzyne Dies to make this card. To make the easel card possible, I used the Half Circle Die. For the circle inserts, I used the Stitched Circles Dies, they nestle perfectly in the other dies. For the base, Stitched Stips were used on the dp. I also insterted a little flag banner on the side using Stitched Flags Two.

Hi it's me again! Today is a busy day. There is a new challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog, "Anything Goes".  BUT make sure you use a STAMP/IMAGE carried in the 7 Kids College Fund Store in order to qualify.

Today's card is made with two stamp sets from Your Next Stamp - Maki A Wish & Soy Awesome. I love anything Japanese/Sushi theme and these images are the cutest! From the set Maki A Wish, I used the following items: wasabi/plate, girl face, soy sauce bowl with chopsticks, heart. From the Soy Awesome set, I used: "soy-mates" sentiment, soy sauce bottle. All the images are colored with Copic markers. There are coordinating dies as well, instead I fussy cut the images and layered them. 

I used By DIEzyne Dies - Pierced Ovals as the base for the images. Underneath, I used the Big Stitched/Pierced Rectangles and added a 1/16" border with red cs. There was a little too much white space, so I used Stitched Circles and a flower from Stitch This, which looks to me like a cherry blossom. Lastly I added some white dots with a gel pen and highlighted with the Wink of Stella - Clear pen.

Come play with us over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! Thanks for stopping by!

Bam Pow Pop!

 Hi guys. How many of you picked up any of the stamps from the July Release? Well, I created a card using Roberto Rascals - Super Hero Henry.


 I colored him with Copics and highlighted his cape and mask with Wink of Stella in Clear.
The background has a gradient effect using three Distress Ink colors: Stormy Sky, Weathered Wood and Black Soot.

I used the word elements from Make A Card #7 Superhero Die and the mini stars. The cute little cloud is from the Little Cloudy Outline Die. I stamped the building from the BamPowPop Sentiment set on white cs, then I used the By DIEzyne Dies - Stitched Strips to cut it out in thirds. Several of the elements on my card were popped out on dimensional foam adhesive.

That's my card and I hope you've enjoyed it. Have a beautiful day!
