Hello friends....  I have 2 quick note cards for you today using Cheerful Hexies from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps,  I absolutely love this stamp set.  I stamped the different colors first and then added the black outline hexies and sentiment.  I added some half pearls for some bling.  This is it for me for now, I will be back in a month after we are settled in our new home.  
Don't forget about the stamp of the month.  You can still get Singing Praises for a couple more days when you place a $75 order as well as free shipping.
Happy Crafting!

#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 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!
