Hey Sugar

Hey everyone! This is just a CAS card.. :) It's my friend Kristi's Birthday today! Happy Birthday Kristi.. and I needed a card to go along with her present I got her.. :)
I just adore the Sugar Rush Set from Paper Smooches.. Especially for the birthday, and anytime you just need a cute little pick me up card.. This card I used copic marker to color my images.. The shake I put on pop dots to give it a little more dimension. I also added diamond glaze and glitter to the "foam" to make it sparkle. Drew some fast lines around the card and that's about it! :) Thanks for looking.. hope you all are having a wonderful weekend..
Thank you to everyone for your comments on my creations and for the PS GDT congrats.. They mean more to me than you know.. :) HUGS

Hey PS creation

Hey everyone!! Well this is another creation I made using the amazing Paper Smooches Stamps from Kim.. LOVE THEM.. :) Come follow along with me and create your own project.. I will give you step by step instructions on how you can create something just like this little scene.. :) Hope you will join me..
Surf & Turf stamp set I used the cut little fish and the waves for all the small waves on this creation.. I used the Boob Tube set for the sentiment HEY!

(Using the Hang Ups stamp set..)For the outhouse and Kraft cardstock, I took the top of the bird house and layered it 3 times for the top of the outhouse. For the base I used 2 different stamps, the rectangle stamp, and the long thin rectangle stamp. I double stamped the chunky rectangle stamp. Then used the long thin one to create the "wood." I used the moon and the stars from this set too.. Oh then I wanted BIG waves, so I used the swoosh on the word "Hi" for the big waves behind my little monster.
Okay for this little monster and the canoe.. I use 3 different stamp sets Sugar Rush, Falling for you, & Vegtastic. I took the caramel apple and made an ore for the little monsters canoe. I used the little monster from Falling for you set. and for the actual canoe, I used the pea pod. everything was colored using copic markers. This was such a fun card to make.. :)

The color combo lt blue, yellow, green, and dark blue was inspired by April Cool Shades:) this was so much fun! This is for the Paper Smooches Spark Challenge.. since I adore PS stamps you all know I have entered this challenge already with other creations.. I was so excited to be the Guest DT member for Paper Smooches the month of AUG so I went and played :) and this is what I came up with..Thanks for stopping bye.. HUGS

Peas On Earth

Peas on Earth.. :) hehe.. I just love the Vegtastic stamp set from Paper Smooches.. I have to be honest with you, when I first saw this set, I thought. Why would anyone want a vegetable stamp set? lol okay I can see why.. I think I have used this set more than any of my other stamps, and lets just say I have PLENTY of them to choose from.. :) I just think it is so versatile and fun.. Kim makes these guys super cute to play with..

Okay.. so for this creation I wanted to make an earth card.. but one problem.. no earth stamp.. so I used the outside edge of the Pea Pod (see pic below) and stamped 2 of them together to make a circle. I then just drew in "earth and water lines"... I then stamped a bunch of the peas from the set, large and small.. colored them all up using copic markers, and placed them around. I used pop dots for the back of the earth.. to give it more of a 3d feel.. :) I knew I wanted to make it say Peas on Earth.. so I used the Peas part of the sentiment from this set, then took letters from the others sets I have to finish the sentiment.. I think it turned out rather well.. :)
Thanks for stoppin by :) hugs

Hang In There

Hang in there.. this is just a simple card using of course Paper Smooches stamps.. I can't wait to see what Kim comes up with next. This card is 4x4, which I just discovered, I LOVE!!! They are big enough to write something sweet in, and small enough to not take forever to create.

I thought a fun card would be a little squirrel hanging on a hanger, sliding down the telephone pole. :) I hope you all are having a wonderful week.. HUGS..

life sweet..

Hey everyone! I am back with a very sweet but simple card.. :) Of course using Paper Smooches stamps.. I just can't seem to get enough of them.

For this Creation.. I used 2 stamp sets, (see below) I took the pea pod and created the "ice cream bowl".. then I used the cute ice cream cone, and cut off just the scoops of ice cream and added it to my sundae. I wanted to add some "whipped cream" so I used the top of the little eggplant, cut off the stem and connected it using a marker. Then placed a cherry on top, because everything is sweeter with a cherry. I used diamond glaze, and some glitter to give it a little more texture, and to had a fun feel to this simple card. Pop it up with some foam squares and there you have it. I used Copic markers to color all my elements..I hope I have inspired you to look at your stamps and create something that is all your own.. :) HUGS

Beep Beep using 4 diff. Paper smooches sets

Okay! Here we go again.. I can't stop looking at my Paper Smooches Stamps and see all sorts of things.. :)

For this creation we use 4 different stamp sets Vegtastic, Sugar Rush, Spiffy Scooters, & Hang Ups.

We will start with the Car on my creation. I used the Pea Pod from the Vegtastic set, I stamped only the outline of the image and the little peas without the face. I then took the little double circle from the Sugar Rush Collection and used the outside edge for the big wheel and the inner circle for the small wheel. Then I took the top of the Carmel apple and made a window, I also used the Carmel apple stick to make the bottom of the window to join it together. The 2 headlights are gumdrops from the Sugar Rush set also.

Okay moving on to the little clouds :) Now Kim has given us amazing clouds in sets, BUT there wasn't a cloud that was the right size for me. So I used the rootbeer float top from the Sugar Rush set. It was the perfect size. :) and the little bitty cloud, that is from the Spiffy Scooters set.

The rainbow is also the rootbeer float stamp, without the straw and I placed it on my block a little bendy so it would look more rainbowish..:)

The cute little tree is from the Hang Ups set. It's the small branch and the 2 leaves. I just placed them randomly to make a heart. The sentiment is part of the Spiffy Scooters collection also.. I only used the Beep Beep part.

The black is folded and tied with some bakers twine, to make it look like a road. The 2 sections of grass were cut with Martha Stewart's Shredding scissors. LOVE THEM use them anytime I have grass to cut :). I used copic markers to color all my images. Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
If you are still with me.. THANK YOU :) Thanks for looking..let me know what you think..HUGS

This is going to be entered into the Spark contest at Paper Smooches. I used the color combo they have going on there..

I used the Black, Green, Tan, Orange color theme.. if you want more information about this contest.. go check it out HERE

I have entered this card into these Challenges.. :)
