Happy Easter!

Hello everyone!.  Can you believe it is Daylight Savings this weekend?  Then right around the corner is Spring! Weeeee!!  The DT at Sunsational Stamps is going to be highlighting some of our fun Easter and Spring Stamps for you over the next week or so, to get you into the mood for nicer weather and all the buds and flowers blooming…Saying goodbye to winter for yet another year.

Today I am using this cute little bunny and egg image.  He’s just so adorable!  He may not be in the store yet, but he’s definitely going to be made available asap for you to use!
 Lots of fun spring colors on this card and my favorite–layers 🙂  A little bit of stickles for the nose and the egg stripes 🙂 I colored him with my copics and then did some chalking in the background.   The DP is from Hot off the Press.  The flowers are $$ store and the sentiment is from Michaels.  My little bit of fringe is from CTMH.   Just because I’m really into them right now, a few little sequins to finish off the flowers. I hope you enjoy him and don’t forget to shop at the store to get started on your Easter and Spring cards!!

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

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!

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. 

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!

Snowflake

Welcome to February!  Already can you believe it?  Soon it will be my birthday 🙂

We begin a new challenge on the Red Carpet Studio blog this week.  Our theme comes from the movie A Winter’s Tale. I actually won an advanced screening to see this movie.  It was ok but not necessarily one of my favorites.  I did enjoy it though.

Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, “Winter’s Tale” is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. (Official Movie Site)

THE CHALLENGE: Use some snowflakes and white paint.  Gesso or molding/modeling paste will also work just as long as its white.

I have started creating Christmas cards again as I start getting ready for the new craft season towards the end of the year.

Here is the card that I created

Isn’t he cute?  He’s called snowflake and he is from Sunsational Stamps .  I had some white puffy paint which I used on my bigger snowflake and then some adirondak paint on the littler ones.  The DP is from my stash as is the Merry Christmas peel and stick.  The image is colored with my copics. I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with us at Red Carpet Studio this week.  We have a wonderful prize up for grabs!
