Be Mine

T.G.I.F  that is what I say, it has been a long dreary week here in GA!  I am missing my AZ sunshine!!  Here is a sweet little card I made this week using new stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Lots of Love.  I colored with copic markers and the paper is from MFTstamps.

H.E.L.L.O

Here is my second card using the current sketch at SCS.  I am using one of my all time favorite Penny Black Stamps.  I colored with my new set of Prismacolor pencils and the paper is from Crate.  I really need to find a good spot in our new house for taking pictures, this is not the best.

Wish Big

Happy Hump Day friends, hope your day is going well so far.  I played along with the sketch challenge over at SCS.  I just love this little mouse from Penny Black Stamps, I colored it up with my new Prismacolor pencils. The design paper is from The Paper Studios.   This sketch was so fun to play with that I made 2 cards, I will be back later with the second one.

Big Birthday Wishes


Hello friends from rainy and dreary Georgia!  I have been getting back into my crafty space a little bit-still working out of totes which makes the process longer but I have been trying.    I just love this new set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Lots of Love, so many cute critters to color up.    I colored up this sloth with copics and the paper is from my scrap box.  I have been waiting a couple days for some brighter light to take better pictures but I got tired of waiting, its not the best photo but for now it will do.

Thinking of you

Playing along with the SCS sketch today..  Love this new to me stamp from Penny Black stamps from the set Fancy Florals.  I made the background with some oxide inks and stamped with Versafine ink.  I was going to use a Sympathy sentiment but decided I could use a Thinking of You card for more occasions.

Birthday Bear

Hello friends, Happy 2020 to all.. Sorry I have been missing in action lately.  Between moving across country and The holidays and now some health issues I have not even organized my crafty space yet.  I am trying to get back into the groove.  I found time to play with this cute new image from Penny Black Stamps, I used Prismacolor pencils.  I need to work on my cloud making skills.  I hope you all have a Healthy and Blessed 2020.

Thinking of you

Hello friends,  taking a crack in the craft room again...  Using this weeks MFTstamps sketch challenge- I started with this in my mind, I didn't turn the sketch just did it the upright way instead of the long way.  I used some distress oxide ink for my main panel and one of these fun flowers from the Flower Silhouette stamp set from MFTstamps.  I really need to get my butt moving and get my craft room together, this digging through totes to find things just makes the process so much longer and frustrating. 
Hugs,

HB Beautiful

Hello friends, decided to play along with Tuesday Morning Sketches .. I am using this sweet set from Unity Stamps called Grow & Change, I colored with Copic Markers and the paper is from Pebbles. The sentiment is from another Unity set called Demand a recount. I had looked at the sketch early in the day yesterday and then tried to make card from memory-it's not exact but hopefully close enough! 😀

Can you BELIEVE IT?

Hello friends...  It's been a long couple of months since I posted.  Our move across country has been and continues to be a huge adjustment for ME!  We are in our home but not quite settled yet.  I went from a home with a custom built craft space to a home with nothing as far as craft storage, desk, etc.  I was not even sure I wanted to set up my craft room at all-kind of depressed I think.  Hubby built me a crafting counter he still has to do a few touch ups to it but I can use it.  I am slowly going through my stuff (so much) to decide what I am going to keep and what kind of storage I am going to need.  I needed to make a couple of Thank you cards for friends who helped us out in our move and this is the first one- It took a lot longer to make because I had to dig for supplies along the way!  I love this cute image by Penny Black Stamps, I colored with Copic markers and the paper is from DCWV.  I had to stand up using my sewing machine because I do not have a sewing table yet!  Anyway, this is a start.  I think I am going to go through and use some of my stamps that have not seen ink in a long time! I have missed all my sweet friends that stop by from time to time and leave comments!
Hugs,
~Stephanie

#1 Teacher

Hello friends, hope this finds everyone doing well.  I feel like I have been M.I.A.  Oh wait, I have been!  We are in the midst of getting ready to move in about 10 days, so I have been busy packing up my craft area/house- what a big job. I did find a little time to craft so today I have a cute little note card perfect for a child to give a teacher on the first day of school.  I love this new set Back To School by Jennifer Nilsson for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I colored with Copic markers and used a bunch of scraps for my background.
My second card features Singing Praises which is the Stamp of the Month by Nina Brackett.  Oh my goodness, just a precious stamp set so near and dear to my heart because I am a bird lover.  I colored with Copic Markers and again used up scraps.  I fussy cut the little flowers and added some pearls to the center.  You can get this set free for a few more days when you place a $75 order.  Hurry, you don't want to miss out!  I will be back with another post on Thursday but then that will be it for awhile as we transition into our new home and I get my craft room set up.

Hello

Hello friends, have you jumped on the mermaid bandwagon yet?  If not, check out this set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, so fun to play with!  Fin-tastic Friends by Jennifer Nilsson.  For my card I first made the sand with oxide ink and added a little texture with one of the stamps from Texture Tiles1. Next I masked off the sand and made the water again with oxide ink and spritz it with water to get the bubble look.  I colored all my characters with Copic Markers and fussy cut them to create my scene.
I decided to make a couple note cards using this month's STAMP OF THE MONTH, SENTIMENTAL WORDFETTI.  I love this set, you can use it alone or with other sentiment stamps for endless possibilities.  I paired it with Itty Bitty Blossoms, I colored with Copic markers and the design papers are both from The Paper Studios. SENTIMENTAL WORDFETTI IS FREE WITH YOUR $60 PURCHASE THIS MONTH!!!  As Always you get FREE SHIPPING WITH A $75 PURCHASE!
Happy Stamping,
