Sweet Little Baby Card

 Good morning!  Well, it's Monday, and I hope it's shaping up to be a good one for ya.  Have you seen  this baby release from The Scrapping Cottage?  It just couldn't have come at a better time.  I spent the weekend celebrating two new babies that are to be born into our family within the next 4-6 weeks.  My niece will welcome her second little one at the end of next month, and on September 12th, my second grandson will make his debut.  It's so wonderful to have the opportunity to celebrate these special blessings and that made it easy to find inspiration for creating this sweet card.
In creating this, I used the following amazing Cottage Cutz dies:
The adorable little baby elephant was cut out using Express It Blending Card, and I colored it with Copic markers.  On the beautifully detailed large baby doily and frame, I used a very heavy weight card stock, so that it would be stronger in order to hold the flowers and baby elephant die cut.  The flowers, turquoise grosgrain ribbon and sentiment from Stampin' Up! finished this one up, and on, what fun it was!!
I hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to an amazing start.  Thanks for stopping by and  have a fabulous day!!!

Welcome To The Funny Farm!

YES, this IS a funny farm, and in more ways than the obvious.  LOL!!  This is an even funnier farm today, because I'm sharing this card made with one of my new favorite stamp sets, entitled exactly that...
Funny Farm
PK-122 Funny Farm to be exact!

 This is one of the new releases from Peachy Keen Stamps, and I completely LOVE IT!!!  Lots of inspiring cards and pages will be created using this stamp set.  The card stock, ribbon and patterned paper are all part of  the Peachy Picks Kit for the month of July.   Oh how I adore these kits, because they make creating so much easier.  Everything is coordinated to perfection!  I stamped this image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with my Copics, and the little farmer's head is popped up on dimensionals.  I thought it would be cute to put his head on an Action Wobble, but I couldn't get it to fit.  Would anyone else besides me like to see those in a smaller size?   I love me some Action Wobbles, but would really love to have a smaller size for such projects as this one.  Maybe someday... who knows!!
 Have you heard about the sale over at Peachy Keen Stamps?   Here's the details about a fabulous deal for this Friday the 13th.  Talk about GOOD LUCK!!!  ;-)

Peachy Keen "Chalk It Up" Challenge #25

Well, hello again!  Yep!  I'm back with not one, BUT two posts in one day!  Can you believe it?  It's sure been a busy week with a holiday and a new stamp release at Peachy Keen Stamps, AND a new challenge at the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog as of today!  Today's challenge is a "Chalk It Up Challenge".  Creating a card using chalk is something that I haven't done for a long, long, time, but I have to admit that I really enjoyed changing things up a bit.

 PK-124 Thank you Dolls
I actually colored this image with chalk using a Dove Blender Pen.  I love the soft muted look that this technique gives the image.  And speaking of image, this sweet little doll is from the PK-124 Thank You Dolls stamp set that was just released last night.  If you like the paper, then you will LOVE the new Peachy Picks Kit that was just released as well.  The weathered and worn comfort of Americana style comes through in a fresh, updated way in the Super Fresh paper collection by Simple Stories.  Included in this month's kit is the following:
Peachy Picks Subscription
  • 9 - 8.5" x 11" sheets of heavyweight Bazzill cardstock
  • Simple Stories "Summer Fresh" 6x6 paper pad
  • 25 Mini clothespins 
  • Prima pink flower pack (6 total flowers)  
  • Studio Calico paper trims
  • Matching burlap ribbon, green/cream twill tape, and red and white checked wide ribbon (1 yd of each)
That's enough crafty goodness to create at LEAST 18 A2 size cards, and from my experience, there's usually some left over.  All of this for only $24.95!!!  WOW!!!  What at deal!!!  This IS a recurring subscription, so every month you can look forward to a new Peachy Picks Kit, and it always coordinates so beautifully with the newly released stamps.   I ♥♥♥ my Peachy Picks Kits, and I know you will love them, too!

Our Peachy Keen Designers have created some wonderful cards to inspire you for this challenge, so please head over to the challenge blog to check out their work and leave them some love.   It's always so exciting to see what you're creating with your Peachy Keen Stamps, and when you play our challenge, you'll have the chance to be considered for the "Top Three, and The Top Peach"!  Bring it on and let's see what ya got up your crafty sleeves!!  ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a glorious day... Stay cool, and Happy Stamping!

Bright and Beautiful Flowers For You

Good morning!  Today I have a card to share with you that's  filled with bright and beautiful flowers all made with wonderful CottageCutz dies.  Making gorgeous cards and scrapbook pages is so easy with these beautiful dies and they turn out perfectly every time!!
 I thought this pretty paper from Bo Bunny was a good match to the leaves on this Tropical Trio Flower CottageCutz Die, and the Lace Flower Doily die made a great backdrop for the bright and beautiful cluster of flowers.  I simply chose colors from the polka dots in the paper to make everything coordinate

Here's a closer look at the gorgeous detail from the flowers.  I added some tiny pink rhinestones for just a touch of bling.  Below you'll find photos and links to the dies I used to create this card.

Wishing you a bright and beautiful day and a weekend filled with wonderful things!  Happy Friday and happy crafting!
