Two Paper Divas

I sure hate to see July end because I have had so much fun with July's release from Two Paper Divas.
For today's card I am going a bit vintage.  I had this cute paper from "Sweet Paris" made by Dovecraft and decided it would make a sweet card.  Of course I had to purchase the buttons and small bows that coordinated with the paper.  I used the stamp Set "Pocket full of..." which I love.  I even decided to add a little ribbon as a tab on the pocket.

I can't believe July is almost over.  Next week I will be previewing the August release from Two Paper Divas which we know will be as fun as July's release.

Two Paper Divas

As promised this week's post is all about vacations.  Summer time is all about vacations and when I saw this adorable camper, it reminded me of all the different campers my parents have had throughout the years.
I had a blast making this card.  I stamped this adorable camper from the set "On the road again" from Two Paper Divas.  I then pieced it together using different pieces of designer paper.  I decided it needed an outline so I scanned it on my brother scan n cut and told it to cut out 1/4" larger than the design on black card stock.  Isn't that fun?  For the background of the camper I used 2 borders (camper and banner at top) from the set "All About Borders 2".

I hope you are checking out all the new stamps released this month from Two Paper Divas.  I know I am loving them.

Mystery Swap #35

Time again for another Mystery Swap.  This time the image was selected by Barb.  The image is "Patriotic Owl" from Whipper Snapper.  I love anything from Whipper Snapper.  The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on Recollections White 110# Cardstock.

I had a blast with this card.  I colored the image with my copic markers and then cut out the image.  I had some star dies so I thought that would be perfect for the background of the image.  The sentiment God Bless America is from Two Paper Divas "Let Freedom Ring" set.

Thanks to Barb for a great challenge.

Two Paper Divas

Today for Two Paper Divas it is all about birthdays.
This month Two Paper Divas has this new sentiment stamp called "More Candles".  I found some candle paper to used for the background.  I colored the candles with my copic markers and then just added embellishments.  If you look behind the button I even found a small candle punch I had.

What a fun card this turned out to be.  Check back next week because it is all about vacations.

Two Paper Divas

I hope by now you have checked out the July release of fun stamps from Two Paper Divas
For this card I used an adorable little stamp set called "Friends and Flowers".  I colored the flowers with my zig watercolor markers which gave the flowers and pot such a vibrant color.

I started with a black piece of cardstock that is 4" x 5 1/4".  The long green floral stripe paper is cut 1" x 3 7/8".  The pink polka dot pieces are cut 1" x 2 5/8".    The center piece of paper is cut 1 1/2" x 2 3/4".  I popped up a few of the flowers.  I love the sentiments on this stamp set.  Perfect for a friends birthday.

Check back next week and see what I have in store.

June Challenge Card

I am in a fun group on Splitcoast stampers and every month someone gets to pick a Mystery Image Swap.  In June Sonja outdid herself on the challenge.  She selected this image "My English Rose" from Power Poppy.  Sonja selected a Rose Name from Edmunds Rose Company fro each of us to use for inspiration.  I was to make a card for Jeanette and the rose name was Firefighter which is a deep pink rose.

Thanks to Sonja for a great challenge.

July Release for Two Paper Divas

I hope everyone had a fun and festive 4th of July.  The weather was perfect here.  The rain was done just in time for fireworks displays. 

Today is the July release for Two Paper Divas.  I decided to do a card today in honor of their release.  I am just loving this stamp set called "Friends & Flowers".  It is so much fun and so versatile.  You can do many things with it.
For my card I sponged the background and then pop dotted the flowers and the vases on the white paper base.  I had meant to color in the leaves but I was anxious to get it completed.  Be sure and check out what else Two Paper Divas is releasing this month.

Mojo Monday

I am loving the new July release of stamps from Two Paper Divas.  I thought I would give you another sneak peek of a set called Friends & Flowers.  I know I will be using this set often.

When I am looking for a sketch idea, I also check out Mojo Monday because they always have such fun sketch challenges.
This is the card that I came up with after seeing this fun challenge.

I stamped the pot first and then added the stems and flowers.  I then colored them with my copic markers.  I then scanned the colored image in to my brother scan and cut.  I then told the machine to add 1/4" and then cut it out of the darker blue green designer paper. The designer paper I used was My Mind's Eye called Market Street.

So be sure and check out Two Paper Divas on July 5th to see the fun stamp sets they have designed this month.

Two Paper Divas

I am so excited about the July release from Two Paper Divas.  I am just amazed at their creativity and what new stamps they come out with each month.
This stamp set is called "Pocket full of..." and I am going to find so much potential in this stamp set.  You will see another card I made using it later on this month.  The bubbles I used for the layer above the orange is from "All About Borders".  The designer paper I used was darker on the bottom and lighter on the top so the pocket looks a bit faded.  I colored the flowers and bubbles with my copic markers.  I really like this stamp set because the pocket is so easy to cut out and with my mini mister I can position the flowers just perfectly.

Be sure and check back next week when I have another fun card from Two Paper Divas.
