Here is my Project for the hop I was given the ONCE UPON A TIME CRITTER SET.  You can access them from the store here.


How cute are these?? :)  I decided to make 3 project with the images, to show the versatility.  I’ve got a Card, a Tag and an ATC to show you.  I chose to use the pre-colored images for these projects this time, because I thought that they were so great.


I created the sentiment just on my computer.  The DP is from the Lakeside paper set by Pebbles Inc.  Ive added some sequins, pearls and twine from my stash.


The tag was created just using some scraps from my box for the tag.  The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up.  I used some ribbon and twine from my stash as well as the flowers and bling.  I added a bit of stickles to the petals of the flowers as well as to the unicorn’s horn.


For this fun ATC I used a sentiment that I printed out on the computer.  I added just some DP and ribbon from my stash.  I popped up the crown with some pop-dots and added some stickles for a bit of wow.  I also gave him a popper of a kisser with some red stickles as well.

I hope you enjoy the projects I’ve created for you today and make sure you stop by everyone’s blog to see all the great ideas and inspiration that they have for you with these fun new critter stamp sets!

Boys and their Toys

Friday is here again, and I’m posting on the Sunsational Stamps blog today with my inspiration piece.

Today I am using the image from the Scrapping with Lisa designs called Jimmy.  I thought he was a fun masculine image to play with.



Rather than coloring with my copics like I normally do, I decided to go with some watercoloring today, just because I’ve not done it in awhile.  So as you can see, like a watercolor painting, some of the areas are darker and some have varying degrees of lighter color.  It was fun to get back into it.

I went with lots of layers and just a few embellishments with this one today.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the store and shop around!  Remember, tomorrow is our blog hop so pop by and see what I have for you then!

DP: Boy crazy (MME)

Punch : EK success

Sentiment:  Stampin Up

Cardstock: Michaels

Twine: unknown

Watercolor pencils: unknown

Just catching up

It’s been a bit busy for me this week with work and a sick household so I don’t have any projects for you, however there is still lots of fun to be had.

Use your Stuff has a fun new sketch challenge to play along with and Red Carpet Studio is celebrating the Oscars.

Come check them out and play along!  Get those creative juices flowing

Just a note as well….the new issue of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine comes out this week and if you are flipping through the pages, you will see that I was published not once, not twice but three times with some cute Riley layouts!  I’d love for you to leave me a comment and let me know what you think of them!

Get Well Soon

Another Friday is here and Tammy here with another card design for you.  If you hop over to the Sunsational Stamps blog, I have my post on.   I am using the Hopping you Get Better Soon Frog. He is just adorable!

I used some Origami paper that a friend sent to me from Japan. I loved the flowers!  I colored him with my copics and then went over the lily pad with some glossy accents (to make it look wet  :)  ).  I added a bit of ribbon and some sequins for a bit of dimension.  I used my Sizzix to cut him out.

I hope that you enjoy  him and don’t forget to stop by the store and check out all the great images that we have for you!

It’s a new challenge day at Red Carpet Studio and I am hosting this week~  My Challenge is based on a movie that I love


In this 1964 beloved musical, pompous phonetics professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) is so sure of his abilities that he takes it upon himself to transform a Cockney working-class girl into someone who can pass for a cultured member of high society. His subject turns out to be the lovely Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn), who agrees to speech lessons to improve her job prospects. Higgins and Eliza clash, then form an unlikely bond — one that is threatened by an aristocratic suitor (Jeremy Brett).

I still have a lot of product left from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan set that I won a long time ago.  I thought that it would be a great set to use for this challenge.  It has all kinds of fun embellishments and paper.  I also really love the colors.  I used a sketch that I found on Pinterest.  It’s from Scrap Paper Scissors!  A great little sketch!


Make sure you stop by the blog and check out the awesome project that the rest of DT has created for you, and to enter to win a great prize from Linnie Blooms

No Lion, I love you

Happy Friday…day before Valentine’s Day!  Tammy here with another fun image for you.  I picked this No Lion, I love you from the store because I thought it would make an adorable Valentine’s Day card!  I love the store example which is in pink and red (perfect for Valentine’s) but I needed mine to match my DP so I went with some yellow.

The flowers are from Walmart and the little pearl dots were in my stash.  I colored him with my Copics and the DP is from My Mind’s Eye. I just cut the hearts out using some of the left over paper.  I added just a bit of glossy accents on his heart as well.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to check out this adorable image in the store here.

Double Love

I am late with this post.  As you saw in my previous post, I did a double easel card that I learned while in my Stampin Up class. (I forgot to put up the little easel with the birds on it when I took the picture, but that is where your sentiment goes.)

I have another one to share with you.  This is the actual card that we did in class!

I’m showing you this for our challenge this week at Use Your Stuff….the theme…LOVE of course!  It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s day, but whatever love means to you!  The DT has some really awesome projects on the blog for you to check out.

The heart die is from stampin up and the rest of the product especially the DP came from Michaels.   I hope you like it and there are still a few days left to play along in our challenge.

The Happy Couple

Hi Everyone!  Tammy here and I am really excited to be a part of the Sunsational Stamps team and to bring you my first project as a DT member.  I saw the Bluebird of Happiness on the Scrapping with Lisa site and thought it would make such a cute wedding card.  Soon it will be the season for those pretty weddings, and it’s always great to have cards on hand.

The DP is from October Afternoon, and unfortunately I can’t remember the line it is.  I used my Spellbinders dies to cut out the scalloped and regular squares.  The image is colored with my copics and then I went over just a few areas with my Wink of Stella clear marker to give it a bit of sparkle.  (It doesn’t seem to show well in the photo though).  The sentiment is from Stampin Up (Labels of Love) and the little sparkly hearts are just from my stash.  I hope you enjoy this card and don’t forget to stop by the store and see what inspires your next project!
