Two Paper Divas

Today's card for Two Paper Divas is one of my favorites with the new releases this month. 
I used a paper background from the Home Sweet Home collection from Graphic 45.  I colored the image with my copics and then fussy cut it out.  The pincushion, thimble, needle and sentiment are all from the "Sew Much Fun" stamp set. I can't believe how many different stamps are on this set.  What a bargain. 

Have you noticed that when you go to a particular stamp set on Two Paper Divas that they have lots of ideas for that stamp set.  I love that idea because sometimes I need just a little extra inspiration when making a card.

Two Paper Divas

I can't believe that May is almost half over.  I am enjoying the wonderful spring that we are having.  Time again for another card for Two Paper Divas.  I hope you are follower of their blog because they have some fantastic ideas there.

Going with the "Loving Spring" theme, I decided to use the new Garden Joy stamp from Two Paper Divas.  I colored the image with my copic markers and then put it on to a card base.  I love my little butterfly wooden embellishment. 

I decided to enter this card in "Crafting By Designs" challenge since the challenge is all about flowers.  Be sure and check out some of their other entries.  I truly love all flowers so this is such a fun challenge.

Art Impressions

Today's card is going to make you smile.  The stamp I used is from Art Impressions called Bertha Big Mouth.  I decided to make this card for the Art Impressions challenge #159 called Lovely Ladies.  When you purchase this stamp, you get wonderful instructions on how to put it all together.  I don't follow directions well and did it my own way.  I first colored with image with my copic markers.  I then put the pull tab together and it is done.

I just love this card .  Come on - it makes you smile just a bit.
Be sure and check out some of the others creations on the Art Impressions blog.  I just love their stamps.

Two Paper Divas

I hope you have been watching the new release this month at Two Paper Divas.  You will see another great bunch on stamps this month. For my card today I used the stamp "Sweet Blossom" and fussy cut it.  I then stamped the ruled paper out of the Paper Elements #1 Stamp Set.  I think it made a great background.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Be sure and check back because this month is tons of fun and I am playing with alot of their new stamps.

Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday

I recently purchased some fun items from Simon Says Stamps.  I have always wanted one of the Fiskars compact stamping press stamp and I must say I love it.  It worked perfectly in stamping this large image. The image is from Stampin Up called Corner Garden.  I stamped the image with my Versa Mark and then heat embossed with my new Ranger Ink Super Fine Embossing Powder.  Boy do you get a nice crisp line with this powder.  And on to my favorite from this purchase.  It was the Peerless Watercolor Papers.  I have always wanted to try watercolor and this has intrigued me for a while.  I just love how this goes on the paper.  I did use watercolor paper to make this card.

So I decided to enter this card in the Work it Wednesday on the Simon Says Blog.   The theme this month is yellow and I think I have it covered with this card. 

Everything goes great with wine

I needed to make a birthday card for a friend and I found this wonderful challenge over at Dragonfly Journeys that fit my card perfectly.

This is a AI image called Celeste Set.  I thought it was so cute.  I fussy cut the image and the couch out after coloring the image of Celeste with my copic markers.

I hope you enjoy this card and it makes you smile.

Two Paper Divas

I just love Fridays for several reasons.  #1 is because I don't have to go to work which is always nice and #2 is that I get to post a fun project that I made using some of my Two Paper Divas stamps. 

I just love this card that I made for a good friend of mine's birthday.  I used the stamp set called "You Make Life Sweet".  This describes my friend to a tee.  I just love the way this card turned out.

Hope you enjoy it.  Makes me want to go out and eat ice cream.
