2nd play date cafe post

Hey everyone!! I wanted to post a second card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge since I like my 1st card.. but feel that this one is more "ME" :)
anyways.. I used Lindy's stamp gang starburst stains (Red Hot Poker Orange)on the flowers to give them a pretty shimmer.. I have found that this also goes on almost as a clear with very little color over a darker color, like the green I have here.. so all you get is your true color with some shine :)

I have used a simply Sassy stamp here.. :)
I colored her with copics and stitched the edges.. I hope you enjoy my creation..

Hippie Chick

Hey everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.. :) As soon as I got this image I had to create a card with her.. do you ever find yourself with images that you just can't wait to color up.. Well Simply Sassy line is that for me..

I love using pop dot's to make elements POP off the card.. here I have used these pop dot's behind the flowers to give it more dimension..

I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stain on the hearts and yellow flowers in the color of Red Hot Poker Orange, and on the cloud in Tibetan Poppy Teal.. I just love these 2 colors right now.. I love their products they really are shimmery....

I was so excited to get this stamp.. it is a design made by Krista Smith.. you can get her at Funky Kits this image is called Hippie Chick I adore the expression on her face.. when I saw this image I fell in love..

For my design, I used the sketch (the same one I used below for Simply Sassy's card) I used below.. I wanted to give it another shot.. as I really love these colors and thought it would be perfect for this project..I used Gina K paper for this project.. of course knowing me I stiched everything down and distessed the edges of all the flowers.. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and looking.. :) HUGS

Simply Sassy...

Okay.. can I just tell you I LOVE LOVE LOVE Simply Sassy Stamps.. I mean I LOVE them.. not just like.. I mean.. If I could buy every single stamp that Krista makes.. I WOULD.. hehe.. but we know that can't happen.. I am saving my pennies though.. :)

I used this sketch from Simply Sassy's blog.. For the Simply Sassy GDT Call...but instead of adding another piece of paper, I added ribbon, and instead of a circle I added a bow.. :) I might have to ink up and color another one of these cuties.. :) I am addicted.. hehe.. HUGS

I used the colors from The Play Date Cafe.. LOVE them.. so pretty.. Greens and Browns.. :)

Paper Smooches freebie

This is an adorable Paper Smooches stamp that was a freebie a little while back.. I resized it and placed them on top of each other. I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stain, Tibetan Poppy Teal, to color the teal birds.. I wish you all could see this IRL.. it's amazing.. I just love Lindy's products.. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.. HUGS

Paper Smooches Boob Tubes

It's all about the BOOB TUBE.. you can get this cute little stamp over at the Paper Smooches Store.. This boob tube I turned into a little boob monster.. :) smiling of course..After stamping the stamp on white cardstock, I outlined it with a sharpie black marker, and added some teeth to the tube.. I used a sharpie marker so I could color this little guy with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stains. I used the Tibetan Poppy Teal, and the Red Hot Poker Orange. I wish you could see this little guy in real life.. HE is SHINNING with SHIMMER.. You can see it a little here.. but not as much as it is IRL.. oh and I added some googlie eyes on top of the antenna to make this little monster come to life. I embossed the background paper, and added some ribbon..

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.. HUGS
