Two Paper Divas

Can you believe it is February already?  Time sure is flying by.  It is hard to believe that we are thinking Easter already.  This month I have focused on some adorable easter cards using the new stamp sets from Two Paper Divas.
My first card I used White embossing powder for the image.  I used the stamp set "Hoppy Day ".  I also added so sparkle fluff to the tail.   Just goes to show you can make it Clean and Simple and still have an adorable card.
I used the same stamp set but stamp out the bunny and then cut him out.  I love the cloud paper and the grass paper to hide this adorable little bunny.  The sun was cut out with my cricut.

Be sure ad come back next week because I have pulled out my zig markers again and made another adorable Easter Card.

Two Paper Divas

Today is the end of my cards from the January release from Two Paper Divas.  I hope you are enjoying the January release as much as I am.  They have added some very talented crafters to the design team and I love seeing what they are making.

All of my cards today are from the Watt's Up? stamp set.  I had so much fun with these that I made 3 cards.  This first card I used a navy cardstock and embossed it with a circle embossing folder.  I colored the light bulb with some different water color paints.  I think I need to get the hang of them a littler better.
 For the card below I used my zig watercolor markers.  You have to love the vibrant colors of these markers.  I then cut them out and pop dotted them on to the paper.
 And yet another example of what you can do with this stamp set.  I colored it with my zig watercolor markers again.  I think this just makes a fun card.
Be sure and check back to see what February is bringing for Two Paper Divas.

Two Paper Divas

Another fun card from the January Release stamps from Two Paper Divas
I just love this sentiment from a new stamp set called Home Family Blessings.  I stamped the house image from the stamp set "My Neighborhood" on to designer paper and fussy cut it out.  I colored in the windows, roof and door with my zig watercolor papers.  I took some white ribbon and just dabbed in my ink pad to give it some color.

Come back next week for some of my favorite cards from Two Paper Divas.

Two Paper Divas

Well I am in to 20 days of my New Years Resolution with eating right and trying to lose some weight.  I thought this card would bring me inspiration but it just makes me want Sugar.

This is another great release from Two Paper Divas this month.   I think the sentiment "Can't Buy Happiness" is perfect.  For the cupcakes I used one of their digital Stamps called Cupcake Celebration. I fussy cut the cupcakes out after coloring them with my copic markers.

Be sure and check out Two Paper Divas this month.  I know there is something there that just has to go home with you.

Mystery Swap Round 32

Today is our release day for Round 32 of a Mystery Swap that I am in with a great bunch of gals over at Splitcoast Stampers.  This month was Jeanette 's choice and she chose an adorable snowman theme.  The stamp is from a Darcie's set. 

I colored the cute image with my copic markers.  I think this is my favorite colors together with the aqua blue and red.  I sure seem to be using it alot.

Thanks for stopping by to see my creation for the day.

Dueling Darlings

It is time again for another Dueling Darlings with my friends on SCS.  This month was a challenge with myself and Barb.  We thought a theme for this time of year would be Soup and get well.

I am in the Dazzler group and I chose this fun image from C.C. Designs called Chick-N-Soup.  Isn't he adorable.  I also sent a few embellishments for their cards.  Be sure and click below to see what the Dazzler team came up with.  It is always fun to see what different ideas people have.

An added challenge was to add your favorite soup recipe or link to the soup.  My favorite soup is Potato Soup and a co-worker gave it to me years ago.  It is still my favorite.  Here is the recipe.

Potato Soup
1 pkg frozen cubed potatoes
12 oz chicken broth
8 oz cream cheese
1 pkg chicken gravy mix
1/4 cup diced carrots
1/4 cup diced onions
2 Tbsp butter
2 cups milk

Brown onions and carrots in butter.  Add chicken broth and bring to a boil.  Add potatoes and cubed cream cheese.  Cook until potatoes are done.  Stir chicken gravy mix into milk and then add to potato mixture.  Let set for 15 minutes for flavors to develop.  You can add crumbled bacon to the soup if you would like.

It is so much fun to see what everyone else does with the packages sent.  You can see some of the other creations at:

Two Paper Divas

Time again for a fun card from the January Release of stamp from Two Paper Divas.  For today's card I used a stamp set Flower Doodles #2.  I love the large petals on this set.
I just stamped the images on to designed paper and fussy cut them out.  The sentiment is from the Banners #1 Stamp Set which a great set to have because of all the sentiments.  It is fun to do a clean and simple card and like the results.
