Addicted to Stamps #256 - My Favorite Things Beary Big Adventure

Happy Monday to you!    I am trying a new challenge blog - Addicted to Stamps and More!     I made a card with my My Favorite Things Beary Big Adventure.   I have had this stamp set awhile and just love the images.    I stamped and colored the image with Copic markers.

I stamped the background with Berrylicious ink onto Sno Cone cardstock with a Linen Background stamp from My Favorite Things.   (Which looks like it is retired now.)   I also die cut MFT Smooth White card stock with the Stitched Rectangle Scalloped Frames and my Sno Cone cardstock panel and then inlaid the panel into the frame and popped it up on a Smooth White cardstock base.    

I aso die cut several of the images with the same Stitched Rectangle Scalloped frame to tuck them into the scene.   The Bear was then popped up on some foam tape.   I stamped the sentiment in versamark ink and white heat embossed onto black cardstock.   I trimmed it down and popped it up on the card panel as well.   

Thanks for stopping by!

Case this Sketch 236 - Get Well Soon Card!

Hello!   I am sharing a Get Well card that I made for my dad.  He has had a rough few weeks and has several more in front of him, so I wanted to cheer him up and created this card and gave him some words of encouragement.  


I die cut Rust cardstock using the Lacy Scalloped Frames and popped them up on kraft cardstock.    I stamped and die cut the images from Miso Happy stamp set with watercolor paper and added some light shading with my Zig and Copic markers.   I stamped the Get Well Soon greeting from Sentiment Essentials in Lime Green Ink and die cut with the coordinating Confetti Cut.   I cut it out three times and glued on top of one another to create dimension.     

I cut a banner from Iced Aqua cardstock and placed my sentiment on top of the banner.   I added my stamped and colored images.   Thanks for stopping to see me today! 

I used the sketch below from the Case this Sketch Challenge.  Here is the link to the challenge.

Color Throwdown Challenge - Magical Day Reverse Confetti

Hope you are having a fantastic weekend!     I played along with the Color Throwdown challenge this week with the pink, yellow and green.    This stamp set was perfect for the challenge.    I used Magical Day by Reverse Confetti.   I colored the images with my Copic markers and cut them out with the matching Magical Day Confetti cuts.  

For the background, I used the Large Eyelet cover panel and kept my card with a lot of white space.   I stamped my sentiment on a Pierced Rounded Top Layers Confetti Cuts.   I used a sentiment from Simply Sentiments and stamped in black ink.   I love this cute stamp set with the princess and dragon!   

Take a look at the Color Throwdown challenge; you have till Monday to play along!  Thanks for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti - Sketch For You To Try!

I am up today on the Reverse Confetti Blog sharing my card for this month's Sketch For You To Try.   This month's sketch was so much fun because I did two things that I love to do!   I love to color critters and love to make my own background paper with stamps!  

I stamped and colored the images from the Paw Prints stamp set and then set them aside while I went to work making my own stamped backgrounds.    I first took the hydrant from the Paw Prints stamp set and stamped it all over a 2 1/2 inch x 4 inch panel of Stone cardstock with Stone ink and added a narrow strip of Salsa card stock.   The background was made from Mist cardstock and stamped with Iced Aqua ink using the Elemental Stripes stamp set.    Even though the pattern was mostly covered up, I still had fun stamping the entire piece.   

I used the Lacy Scallop Circle Confetti cut and die cut it with the Premier Polar White cardstock and used some of the patterned paper from Under the Umbrella to break up the white and give my dog and his dog house a little grounding.   I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Monkey Business Stamp set.   I added three small enamel dots in a matching color to complete the sketch!  

Be sure to check out the Reverse Confetti Blog today to see what the other Designers came up with for this month's sketch and to link your creation to the challenge!   Thanks for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti - Jen's Birthday weekend and SALE!

It's Jen's Birthday Weekend and to celebrate she has a birthday present for all her customers!    Jen is giving you 20% on your entire order at the Reverse Confetti Shop now thru Sunday, August 13th!   

To celebrate her birthday, I am sharing a birthday card with some new and older products!   I love to look at my stamps and dies in new ways and see ways that I can stretch myself and find a way to look at them in a new way.   For my project I used the recently released Miso Happy and Simply Sentiments along with an older but lovely stamp set, Candles 'n Confetti.   I decided to pair the two together with some stamp masking.    

I stamped and masked the party hat from Monkey Business and then stamped and masked the panda from Miso Happy.    I then stamped and masked my cake and built my cake with Candles 'n Confetti set.   I used several stamp colors to make my cake: Piggy Bank, Pistachio and Bumble Bee.   I colored my images simply with Copic Markers and then trimmed out my stamped panel with the Pierced Rounded Top Layers Confetti Cuts.     

I selected some patterned paper from the Pattern Play 6x6 paper pad and covered the entire front of an A2 sized card panel with the patterned paper.   Next I used the Stitched Flag Trio and cut out some Piggy Bank and Midnight cardstock and layered in the top right corner of my card.   

I struggled with how I was going to put my sentiment on the card.     I went back and forth on what to do because like most of my cards, I create on the fly and sometimes I forget about the sentiment.   I had no clue where to put it and then decided that it would look pretty cool stamped over the cake.      I must have stressed about it for several minutes before finally putting ink to my stamp and holding my breath as I stamped it on the panel!   The sentiment came from the Simply Sentiment stamp set. 

Hop over to the Reverse Confetti blog and take advantage of this Birthday Sale and pick up those items that have been on your wish list and save 20%!
