Magnolia Suitcase!! Fall Travels

It's my sisters birthday!! So what better way to send her my love (she lives 4hrs away) then in a traveling suitcase.. I made this little suitcase template.. and had a blast doing it.. I used 2 of the magnolia stamps... the eiffel tower stamp which I embossed with silver embossing powder, then used tim holtz distressed walnut ink to make it look "old" and the flight attendent stamp also..
Up close photo of the Eiffel Tower.. and the stitching!
Inside I created a "passport" this is folded into a little book, It has little stamps where she would have traveled etc.. so all of the family can write a little something to my sister there also..
The Flight Attendent is colored in pinks.. as well as the buckel of the bag.. I added the little white polka-dots with a white gel pen.. This was done for the Just Magnolia Challenge Think Pink

I also stitched everything down so it looked like a real suitcase.. I had a blast making this card!! I have entered it into the All That Scraps Fall/Fold Challenge.. since the handle folds up and down like a real suitcase, and I create the little folded up passport I thought it was perfect.. The Magnolia Downunder has an All Aboard Challenge.. which I thought this is perfect for too :)

2 new projects for you :)


This first project I used a Rachelle Anne Miller Stamp that I got from www.sugarnellie.com I just adore her images.. I used the sketch from "The Sugar Bowl Challenge"
The image is colored with copic markers, and the background I used a light gray chalk to shade it. On the bib, and shoes of the adorable duck is some diamond glaze. (you can see in the first picture above) I have also entered this card into the Wild Orchid Challenge-Pastel


For this card I used the adorable freebie from Bugaboo Stamps Jodie gave it to everyone this week. What's your cause challenge HERE
I wanted to create a card for a friend who just found out she has breast cancer.. I also wanted to give her a ribbon, so I made a ribbon that she could wear and take off the card! Diamond Glaze was used for the spots on the ribbon to make the card more interesting.. and I colored the image with Copic Markers..
Thanks for stopping by and looking! HUGS

flying by to say hi!!

I have had a crazy couple of weeks to say the least.. So today when Liberty went down for her nap, I decided to play for about 45 mins before doing chores..lol I wanted to create something Fall/Halloween-ish.. so this is what I came up with...
I used a cute Maggie stamp for this card.. I love the way it turned out. The moon, and my little maggie flying through it!! I used Shimmers Vibez Rolling in the Hay spray for the shimmer on the moon, I used fun flocks on the clouds, and googlie eyes on the bat. I colored the image with copic markers, and pop dotted her and the bat to make her "fly" off the page... I really hope you all are having a great Sunday.. and enjoy looking at my creation.. HUGS

Help if you can fundraiser !!



Help if you can FUNDRAISER!!

Hey everyone!! This is Alison from freedigitalstamps.blogspot.com and Stretch N' Bubbles.. I am contacting you because my father(mom & dad in photo) had a stroke on the 18th of Aug. he just got out of the ICU.. Both of my parents live with me, and my father has been a constant stone in the lives of our families..He has owned and worked at his own cabinet shop for over 40years, never advertised.. all his clients were by word of mouth.. but now he will not be able to return to work.. He has no feeling in his right side and his speech has been affected. I found out from my mother that they have very poor insurance, the hospital bills alone is going to be a great burden for her (and our family) to bear, let alone rehab etc. So I along with 4 other amazing digital stamp artists are putting together a fundraiser.

Christmas Block Blog Hop



Welcome to the StretchNBubbles Christmas Block Blog Hop. If you came here from D'Anne's blog you're in the right place. If you stumbled upon this hop by accident, go to the SNB blog and start there. Be sure to leave comments on all the DTs posts along the way to be eligible for some great prizes!

I am definitly in the Christmas spirit and have created a new line of Christmas block images. Be sure to visit each DT member's blog so you can see all of them. I used the Christmas Ornament #3

Be sure to leave a comment here on this post. I'll choose a winner from all the comments on Wednesday, September 1st and that person will win the image I used in my card. Leave comments on all the DT's posts along the hop and you can win the images they used too. Once you've made your way through the hop, you'll be in the running for the overall blog hop winner. The overall winner wins the entire block set!

I used the #3 Christmas Ornament. I colored my image with copics, I applied glitter to the circles in the middle. I distressed the image, and pop it up on some pop dots. I used some fun buttons at the bottom on a little strip of paper, and tied a bow to the edge of the card.

I am the last stop on the hop!! We hope you enjoy all this Christmas cuteness. Be sure to stop by the SNB Shop to see more of the newest stamps available. Pin It

I added some 3d puffy paint delicate rose, I made 3 lolly pop flowers and in the center of each flower I added a flower brad... I used 4 different patterned papers.. and for an added fun!! Creative Inspirations was having a challenge of using something recycled.. so you ask what is recycled on my card?? look at the top
right corner.. can you guess what it is?? If you guess Christmas light fuses then you are RIGHT!!

Tidly Inks Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone... I have a fun little card to share with you today.. I used a Tiddly Inks Stamp called Tree Hugger.. I just ADORE this stamp.. I added some fun little dots to her dress for added texture.. I also love this sentiment.. "We have been friends together in sunshine, and in shade.." I thought it fit perfectly with this card

I 3d pop dotted the scallop and the image so it would have more dimension..

I also paper pieced the top of the tree with some fun patterned paper I had so the tree would have a little more personality.. I colored the image with my copics, I then took my 3d red puffy paint and added sweet little red dots all around the circle to tie in the red I have my little girl wearing.. all and all I think the card turned out really cute..

Wish me LUCK!!!!
I have entered this card into Tiddly Inks Challenge.. since that is where I got the sketch from :)

Tidly Inks Halloween Blog Hop

Yep you read that right.. Tiddly Inks is having a Halloween Blog hop and YOU are invited.. all you have to do is go to their challenge blog HERE for the hop.. you get to be inspired by all the beautiful and wonderful creations..

I chose this image Dogs are fun which you can grab in her store HERE I thought it would be fun to make my little girl with a little bit of spunk.. I added some purple to her hair.. I wanted to stick to the colors that I colored my image with.. one of the fun elements of my card which I hope you all will try sometime.. I punched out a row of circles.. and turned it into my own scalloped edge.. So I used the negative of my circles as a scalloped border.. Copics were used to color this image.. I just love each and EVERY one of Tiddly Inks images.. I had a blast making this card.. I hope you are enjoying the hop.. and thanks for stopping by.. HUGS
