Foodie Friends are the Best (simon says stamp)

Hi everyone.  I had a bit of spare time last night and decided to play with Simon Says Stamp‘s SUPER cute Foodie Friends stamp set.

Bunny Love (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! TGIF! This week the Stamping Bella team is using any older image (not from the latest release). With Easter just around the corner, I pulled out a few of my favorite Easter/spring sets.  At the top of that list is Tiny Townie  Becky Loves Bunny Wobbles. ♥ 

Stamping Bella Becky Loves Bunny Wobbles

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers. I die-cut a gingham frame using two circle dies then adhered it over the outer edge of a die-cut window.

Copic markers – BV01, BV02, BV04, C00, C1, C2, E00, E01, E11, R000, R01, V0000, YR21, YR82

The window panel is popped up on foam tape with Becky and her wobbles framed inside.

Stamping Bella Squidgy Easter Trio

I posted this card (using Squidy Easter Trio) on Instagram the other day so I thought I’d add it here with the marker info (noted below the following photo).

a little spring and super sized hugs (paper smooches)

Hello, friends! I know many of you have been blasted with unrelenting winter storms so I thought I’d bring a bit of spring your way.

Paper Smooches Natural Beauties

I used the tiny and oh-so-cute wreath from Paper SmoochesNatural Beauties stamp set. I stamped in dark brown ink, colored the leaves and bird with Copic markers then added a few die-cut flowers and stamped hearts.  (The coordinating Natural Beauties Icons dies are currently 50% off!)

Paper Smooches Natural Beauties (close-up)

Copic markers – Y21, YG23

Along the stamped panel edges, I adhered Deco Edges, using Queen & Company‘s Simple Stripes patterned paper beneath each side.

Paper Smooches Think Fast

I have a second card today using Think Fast with Think Fast Icons dies. It’s a cute set for sending big hugs, big congrats or planning a big lunch.  😉

Paper Smooches Think Fast (close-up)

Copic markers – C7, E02, E30, E31, E33, E35, G28, R12, R24, R29, R32, R39, R89, Y17, YG03, YG06, YG09, YG17, YR04, YR12

After coloring with markers, I popped up the sandwich, top of the drink and top of the fries with foam tape.

Irish You a Magical Day (paper smooches)

Hi everyone.  Today I have a card to share using Paper SmoochesMagical Spring stamp set. While I am not a fan of beer, I’ve always been fascinated by GREEN beer.  Haha. It just seems fun (although I’ve never had it).

Paper Smooches Magical Spring stamp set

I randomly stamped the glass then colored with Copic markers. I used the clover from Spring dies, cutting from X-Press It Blending Card and also coloring with markers.

Copic markers – C00, C1, C2, Y32, YG03, YG06, YG09, YG17

Picture Perfect Shaker Kit by Queen & Co.

Hello everyone. Today I’ve used an older (but SO fun) shaker kit from Queen & Company — Picture Perfect.  The kit includes a paper pad, camera dies, pre-cut foam and acetate, sticker sentiments and pearl toppings in eight colors.  The paper pad includes a variety of patterns and colors, perfect for creating both masculine and feminine cards.  I created one of each.

Picture-Perfect-2-500

On my first card, I used the pink and floral patterns and placed pink pearl toppings inside the shaker. After removing the sentiment sticker from the release sheet, I adhered it to card stock for extra stability, trimmed and adhered over the shaker. I trimmed and adhered foam pieces beneath each end to stabilize and level the sentiment. (I use the leftover foam pieces from the shaker.)

Picture-Perfect-2-CU-500

Using Sheer Glue, I adhered a few hearts throughout then adhered three tiny peppermint Candy Toppings as extra embellishments.

Supplies:  Picture Perfect shaker kit, Sheer Glue, Candy Toppings

Picture-Perfect-1-500

My second card could be used for a girl or boy as I used gender neutral colors and patterns. Inside the shaker, I placed blue Candy Toppings as well as green and yellow pearls from the kit.

Picture-Perfect-1-CU-500

I created a bit of pattern on white card stock by die-cutting small patterned circles and adhering with Sheer Glue. I added three iridescent pearls, cut my sticker sentiment to a tag shape (after adhering to white card stock) then tied a bit of green string.

Supplies:  Picture Perfect shaker kit, Sheer Glue, Candy Toppings

Along with the Picture Perfect kit, foam and acetate refills are available, as is a separate Picture Perfect paper pad. And if you run out of pearl toppings, more of those are available here. I just love that Queen & Co. provides refills for kits. So very thoughtful.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
