Two Paper Divas

Today I am posting one of my favorite cards from Two Paper Divas May stamp release.
My husband is fisherman so I was really excited to get this stamp set from Two Paper Divas called "Fishing".   This is such a fun set.  I have other cards that I am making using this fun set.  I colored the images with my copic markers and then had my Brother Scan N Cut machine cut around the images.  

Check back next week because we will have new images for June.

Two Paper Divas

Today I am posting another Bird House card that I made using the "Bless Your Nest" stamp set that was released by Two Paper Divas in May.  This is one of the cutest Bird House stamps I have seen.  I just love it.
I love cloud background papers.  They always fit in perfectly for a summer day card.

See you next Friday when I will post a masculine card for a change.

Mystery Challenge

This card is for a Mystery Swap on SCS. A group of us are doing a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same mystery image, sent to us by the hostess. This swap was created by Forest Ranger—Jeanette and we are now in our third round!  The hostess this month is Kelly and she came up with this adorable image called "Hug-a-bull" by Sugar Pea Designs.  

I just love this adorable image.  I colored it with my copic markers.

You can see what some of my friends in SCS did with this challenge.
Thanks to Kelly for a great challenge.

Part of the challenge was to list what we would plant in our garden.  I don't have a garden but always did growing up as a kid.  I think my favorite was the strawberries and asparagus.  But nothing beats having anything fresh from the gardens.  The Farmers Markets are starting in our area and I can't wait to get some of the fresh produce.

Two Paper Divas

I hope you are playing along with the Two Paper Divas Sketch Challenge they posted on Monday.  I am impressed with what everyone came up with so far.

Today I am using the same stamp set I used on Monday called "I Love the USA".
I think the background paper ( We R Memory Keepers Red White & Blue) really made this image pop.  I found this burst design on my Brother Scan n cut and just added some rhinestones for effect.  The blue border on the circle is a die from Waffle Flower called Flower Circles Inverted.  I know I am going to have fun with it.

See you next week when I am back to the bird house stamp.

Two Paper Divas Sketch Challenge

Today over at Two Paper Divas they are having a sketch challenge.  I always love sketch challenges and seeing what everyone comes up with.  This is the sketch to work with.

This is my take on the sketch challenge.
I used one of the new stamps that was released in May called I Love the USA.  I think I will always love the colors Red White and Blue.  So bright and cheerful.

So be sure and head over the Two Paper Divas Blog and enter the challenge for a great prize.

Two Paper Divas

Here it is the beginning of the month which means time for a new release from Two Paper Divas.  For my card today I decided to use this fun stamp set called "Bless Your Nest".  I have always been a fan of bird houses so I was thrilled when Two Paper Divas sent me this set.
I started with a piece of cloud paper.  I'm not sure who makes that paper because I was recently at a retreat and I yelled does anyone have cloud paper and of course people started digging.  My sister found this in her stash.  I used the sun, cloud and fence die.  The bird house I colored with my zig watercolor markers and then cut them out.  What a fun card to create.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you stop by again on Monday because Two Paper Divas has a new challenge to enter.
