Two Paper Divas

Have you visited Two Paper Divas lately?  They have a fantastic new look.  Easier to shop so that is always good.
Sorry for the quality of my picture but it is late in the evening and no good lighting in my house.  I just love the picnic table and the Life's A Picnic coordinating stamps.  I used a brayer for the sky part of the card.  The green grass was sponged on.  I colored all the images with my copic markers and decided to put a few ants climbing up to the basket.  Where there is food, there are critters.

Have a great day and be sure and visit Two Paper Divas.  You won't be sorry.

Two Paper Divas

I have a fun project today.  A friend of mine made some peach jelly and I told her I would make tags for the jelly jars. I used the Two Paper Diva Jelly Jar stamp set which is a current favorite of mine.
 This first jar I used a tag die and just printed Peach Jam in 6 pt font and then used the label stamp over it.  I then fussy cut out the tag jar, topper and border. 
For this tag, I stamped the image on adhesive backed paper and then glued on the different pieces. 

What a great way to label your jars.

Meljens Designs Challenge #224

Time again for another fun challenge over at Meljen's Designs. The challenge today is "Hanging Out".  Part of your image needs to hang off the card.  Since I love flowers, I decided to use Little Layered Flowers Stitched Lotus and Little Layered Flowers Stitched Leaf.  I colored both digital stamps with my copic markers and cut them out.  I let them hang off the card a bit for the challenge.
Be sure and check out what the rest of the Design Team has came up with.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

Today's challenge over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges is Chevron and the twist is to use ribbon.  I decided with the black chevron background and the ribbon is a bow I added.  The designer paper is called Park Bench by Fancy Pants.  I love the colors in this set.  The dies are poppies from Memory Box.

Two Paper Divas

They are at it again.  I am amazed at all the new clear stamp sets coming from Two Paper Divas.  One of my favorite stamp sets right now is the Jelly Jar Set.  I used it for today's card.
I stamped the image onto the designer paper (From Stampin Up) and then cut it out.  The pennant banner is by Memory Box and the border die is from MFT.

Design Team Day At Meljen's

Well I can't believe it is August already.  Summer has just flown buy.  Today I have decided to make a Christmas card using the Cozy Winter Raccoon image By Meljen's Designs .  I think he is just adorable all dressed up in his scarf and hat.

Christmas will be here before we know it and I want to have all my cards done before the holidays get here.

I colored the image with my copic markers and added a little Frosted Lace Stickles on the hat and pompom.  I then used a spellbinder die behind the image.  The Designer Papers are from Stampin Up.
Enjoy your day and don't forget that it is never too early to start your Christmas cards.

Meljen's Challenge #222

Today's challenge over at Meljen's Designs is Monochrome.  I decided to go with a simple Christmas card using Christmas Star Snowman and a little silver background to make it pop.  I also used some silver stickles around the snowman to give it a little dimension.  I used a silver embossing powder on the sentiment. 
Be sure and check out the rest of the great designs from the design team.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

It is hard to believe Summer is almost over and School starts next week.  The challenge today over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges is perfect for this time of year.   The challenge this week is to include a book, pencil, erase, notebook paper or something "School supply like" on your creation.  The twist is to leave lost of white space on your creation.

For my card I used the "Back to School" stamp set from Two Paper Divas.  This is such a great stamp set.  I stamped the books on a piece of white cardstock and then I cut them out.  I used the ruler stamp on the ribbon and the sentiment was perfect for this card.

Hope you enjoy the last bit of your summer.

Two Paper Divas

Sympathy cards are never very fun to make and I feel like the card just needs to be simple to convey your condolences.   Today made a sympathy card using Two Paper Divas Pretty Posies. I just love this set.  I stamped each of the flowers and the stem and cut them out. 
Pretty Posies
This is what my card turned out to be.
The embossed background is from Papertrey Ink as is the sentiment.

Check back because I have another darling stamp set from Two Paper Divas that I can't wait to use.  Perfect stamp set for the summer months.  Hope I have peaked your interest and you come back to check it out.
