Elephant Zoo Baby Card

I'm sharing a baby card using the cute Zoo Baby stamp set. I added watercolor splatters using the splatters from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
I inked the elephant stamp up really good with Pacific Point ink. I used a stamping tip that someone passed onto me. They recommended stamping over a mouse pad or some other foamy pad when using the photopolymer stamps to get better ink coverage. It definitely helps to get that good solid ink image.

Lego Block Birthday

Today I'm sharing a boy's Lego-themed birthday card. What a fun card to make with all the bright colors and circles, and who doesn't love Lego's?

 I sponged the edges of all the circles with the same color as the cardstock to help them stand out.

CS: Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Stazon black
Punches: 1-1/4" Circle
SS: A Fitting Occasion

I appreciate you visiting!

Welcome Baby Hybrid

I used a stamp image from MDS for the focal point of my cut-out baby chick and for the sentiment. The background is lightly sponged with Crisp Cantaloupe and Daffodil Delight. A quick and cute card. Love how solid the digital images turn out!

Thanks for popping in!

Mixing Old With New

I've had these cute watercolor base cards for several years but just haven't ever used them...until now. I needed some quick and cute cards and voila, these bases came to rescue! I love the watercolor look and how great that they were already painted for me. I used the Garden Party stamp set and masking.

So glad that you stopped by!

Some fun news this month...I've joined the Paper Crafters Sampler's design team for 6 months. 

In each issue you’ll find:

·         Projects using Stampin’ Up! Only products
·         Full step by step instructions on recreating each project.
·         Additional images needed for recreating projects.
·         7 – 8 projects, two projects being 3D and one EXCLUSIVE template each month.

          The Paper Crafters Sampler is released the 10th of each month.

 Summer is in full swing, and the July 2015 issue of Paper Crafters Sampler is celebrating the season with the theme, "It's Summer", which explodes with summer-themed projects.  Included are energetic summer colors, to soft sea-mist blue and greens.  Let's not forget the butterflies that grace the summer sunflowers.  You can spend the day creating your very own butterfly mobile.
So, if you're looking to stay out of the mid-day heat, try creating some of these "thirst-quenching" projects.

The template of the month is a State Highway template, to incorporate your 'vacation travels' this summer.

Here is part of my summer themed project for this issue:
