it's an incredible day...it's Sweet Stamp Shop's February release, and I am in LOVE with it!


eeeee!!
my favorite stamps sets are the Face of Love and Pour Decisions sets!! but they're seriously ALL amazing, and so versatile!
the illustrations on the Face of Love set are just INCREDIBLE!! 


I colored all of the images with Copic Markers! and then I made this card:



eeeek!! such an ADORABLE card for Valentine's Day, or an anniversary, or just because!
I did some Distress Ink blending with Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold to create the background and then popped up the two heads! so sweet!

here's my card with Pour Decisions...LOVE!


I started with a piece of white cardstock, ink blended around the edges with Distress Oxide Black Soot, and then used some white gesso, to add the bright whiteness to the middle of the card!
LOOOOOOOVE these fruity drinks!!!! I'll take one of each please! ha!

the last card I made with this release uses the Weather Plans set:


which is just ADORABLE!
I looooove those clouds!!


anyone else get down to some 80's music every once in a while?! this song was totally stuck in my head the whole time I was making this card! ha ha! LOOOOOOVE this!!!

Newton's Nook Designs February Release - Woof Pack Stamp Set

wow! and just like that, we're on the last day of Newton's Nook Designs February release!




and oh my gosh you guys...this release is so completely amazing! I can't wait for you to fall in love with these pups like me!
today we're focusing on the Woof Pack Stamp Set!

you can totally create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on February 16th, right here!

here's my first card:


eeeeee!
Ok, so I stamped the whole image in a light grey Ink, twice. I made the first stamped image my card base, and then used the second one to die cut out the heart using the Darling Hearts Die set, and selectively color in the three pups!!
(this card is for my mom to give to her besties, and TWO of these dogs I colored look JUST LIKE her friends' dogs! amazing!)


I popped up the heart and then framed the whole card with the edge of the Frames and Flags large die! I had added color to it by watercoloring with Distress Oxides in rainbow shades! then I heat embossed the sentiment in black on top of the image! so fun!

my second card uses a bunch of the images that are fussy cut out in a big cluster!


aw, I just love those pups!
everything was colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. once the image was fussy cut out, I popped it up with foam tape.


the background was created using the Pawprints stencil and white embossing paste. after I spread the paste and lifted the stencil, I shook embossing glitter on top and let it all dry. once it was dry, I used my heat gun to melt the powder. LOVE the texture and glitter it adds!

Newton's Nook Designs February Release - Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set + coordinating Die

good morning!
today we're continuing the fun with day 2 of Newton's Nook Designs February release!




and oh my gosh you guys...this release is so completely amazing! these bunnies are SO sweet and adorable, and I can't wait for you all to see it, too!
today we're focusing on Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set + coordinating Die 
you can totally create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on February 16th, right here!

here's my first card:


love.it!
ha!
I colored the same bunny image 2 times and then fussy cut them out. they were colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then i added some details with my white gel pen!


I used the Land Borders die set to create the grassy hills, and then the Starfield Stencil to add texture to the sky!
all of the backgrounds were created with a mix of watercolor using Distress Inks and Distress Oxides. for the grass I used Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover. for the sky, I used Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade.
then I used some white embossing paste on top of the sky for some starry texture!

my second card uses the sweetest little bunny image ever!


I started by using the **new** Cloud Sky Stencil and some Distress Inks to create the background! first, I did a little light ink blending in Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio, then went back over it with the same colors, darker. I also added some white details to the clouds!


those sweet butterflies were finished by adding some glitter to their wings! they're so cute!
