Happy Birthday Denise

 We the Design Team of The Project Bin stamps are celebrating a truly wonderful person, Denise!  She is the owner and creative genius behind this amazing stamp line.  I hope you have checked out all the fantastic stamps that she carries in her store.  You will see stamps that are uplifting and just fun to use.    Denise has always been so kind to us on the design team for The Project Bin.  She is always positive and truly blesses us with her kindness.

Denise, thank you for all you do and for who you are.

For my birthday card to Denise I first decided to create a scene with flowers and trees using the stamp set "Merriest Christmas".  Can you tell I am ready for spring?  There is a matching die to cut out the trees so I stamped several and used the die to cut them out.
I then wanted to stamp a Happy Birthday sentiment to Denise and I love the stamp set "Birthday Girl" so I decided this would be perfect for my card.  Although it doesn't show up very well, I stamped with black ink and then versamark ink and used a holographic embossing powder to make the sentiment sparkle.  
You will notice that I used the heart from the stamp set on the back of the envelope and the small stamp that says Happy mail inside of it.  I colored the heart with my copic markers.

I have started stamping the back of my cards using this adorable  "Hand Made" stamp set.  It is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  


We are also having a challenge today with our Challenge Your Stash group on Splitcoaststampers which our challenge was to use trees.  So I covered this challenge with all my treees.

So happy birthday Denise.  Thanks for all the encouragement and friendliness throughout the years.  We from the Design Team appreciate everything you do.

The Project Bin

 I wanted to post one more card I made for The Project Bin.  I am having fun with these slimline cards.  At first I wasn't sure about them but now I enjoy making them.

For my card I used 2 different stamp sets from The Project Bin.  I started my card by using the Picket Fence Die Cutting Slimline system and cut out 3 circles.  I then stamped the snowflake image from the North Pole Stamp Set by The Project Bin with navy ink and then stamped again with Versamark ink and used a glitter embossing powder.



I then stamped the sentiment in the center of the card using the same stamp set as the snowflakes.  I then decided the card needed a little snowman so I stamped off the snowman from the stamp set Merriest Christmas and colored him with my copic markers.  I cut him out using the matching die provided in the stamp set.

This was such a fun card to make for my last card this year for The Project Bin.

PIP Challenge #2049

 Today I have a card I made for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #2049.  Our sponsor this week is Beccy's Place.  


I just love her images.  They are just so cute and fun to work with.  For my card today I am using the image Cinnamon Mittens from the Home for the Holiday digital set.  
I printed off this image and then colored with my copic markers.  I also cut the image out with my Brother Scan n cut.  The sentiment is also from the same set.

So be sure and check out Beccy's Place and I hope to see your creations over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  Beccy also has a blog that you need to check out because she has some great ideas on using the digital images.  You can see it HERE.

Beccy is also running a December Challenge on her blog so I decided to enter this card in that challenge.  The Challenge is to use a Christmas image along with some bling which you will see that I decided to use enamel dots.  

I also wanted to use this card as my December Crafters of Faith group from Splitcoaststampers.  Jeanette was our hostess this month and she chose the scripture:  Matthew 2:10 When they (The Wise Men) saw the star, they were overjoyed beyond measure.  Jeanette challenged us to use a star or stars on our creation.
