7 Kids Cas-ual Fridays stamp

Happy beautiful Monday everyone! I hope your weekend went very well. 😃
I live in the heart of Columbia, SC and eclipse fever is everywhere.
It's definitely exciting, you can really feel this historical buzz!

I spent some time in my craft room this weekend,
playing with the beautiful Cas-ual Fridays Pretty Posies set:

This stamp set is so sweet and versatile! It even has its own coordinating die (sold separately):

I used three of the images, and die cuts, along with two of the sentiments:

These Posies are such a nice size to fill up a card. 
I made mine a 5.5 x 5.5 and still needed to rearrange it for more room!

You can find all of the products here at 7Kids Craft Store,
Kelly also has an amazing clearance sale going on right here
Go ahead, you deserve it! ;)
Have a wonderful day everyone!

Swiss Pixie Unicorn Lucy

Happy happy Thursday everyone!
I am in C.C. Designs monthly newsletter today 
with this adorable cutie from the Halloween Release:

Swiss Pixie Unicorn Lucy is so much fun to create with.
I colored her up with Copics, and then stickled her with coordinating colors.
You can see more of it here in this picture:

I paired her with a sentiment from the Rockabilly Sentiment set,
because you really shouldn't let anyone dull your sparkle. ;)

Thank you for coming by to see me today,
I truly appreciate your friendship!

7 Kids Designer - Who Me?!?

Happy Wednesday everyone!
I am celebrating mid-week with a fun announcement -
I am on the 7 Kids Craft Store Design Team!
I've always loved the store and its fun variety of products,
now I have the opportunity to work with artists that I admire. 💝

Today we are starting our monthly blog challenge of Anything Goes,
one lucky winner will receive a $20 gc to the store!

For my card I used Vilda Stamps Christmas and a sentiment from Cas-ual Fridays Pretty Posies:

I found some wonderful scraps in my hoard drawer of the mushroom paper (Recollections)
and colored up the images with Copics. I popped everything up on dimensional dots and finished it with that sweet sentiment on a banner.

because C.C. Designs' August stamps are now available in the store!

Christine has also added a wonderful Mirror Block stamp that makes creating twice as fun!
I can't wait to play around with it and show you its true magic. :)

For my card today I used the adorable Super Girl image:

She's colored up with Copics and paired with a Rockabilly Sentiment stamp.
I created a layer with a cloud embossing folder,
then used 3D foam dots to bring all the panels together.
Of course you can color Super Girl up in any color you choose,
I stayed with the classic colors to coordinate with my papers. ;)

Be sure to stop by the blog to see more samples made by the fabulous designers,
they've worked hard all week to bring these images to life.

Rockabilly Girl

Happy Monday, friends!
I am on C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps' FB page with this new cutie from July's release:

Oh my goodness, how cute is this Rockabilly Girl?!?
I paired her with this adorable coordinating sentiment and
designed an easel card:

I found this 12x12 paper pack at Michaels called Candy Retro {Recollections}.
The papers are sooo much fun to use with these gals!
Rockabilly Girl was colored up with Copics,
the dots were created with a white Inkessential gel pen.

Be sure to swing by the CCD store to see all the other cuties in this set!
Christine also has an awesome clearance sale going on -
better hurry before the goodies disappear. ;)

Have a wonderful day everyone, thank you for coming by to see me!

Pop Up Box Card

I'm so excited to share my first ever Pop Up Box card
that I made last week for one of our Stamp Features over at TGF.
I've always admired these cards, they're so fascinating with their dimension.
You can find easy instructions through Google,
I used this step by step tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers.
When I received my July clear stamps, I knew that I had to give this fun technique a try with Up:

Here is the card folded flat, surprisingly it fits nicely into a large envelope!
I used a little paper clip to keep it together upright for photo purposes:

When you first open up the card,
my images still fit nicely into the 'frame' of the pop up box:

Here it is fully opened, a little bit of a bird's eye view:

And here it is at eye level:

I combined Up with a couple of images from the Main Street clear set,
along with a retired TGF cloud die, and a Martha Stewart fence punch.
My images were adhered to heavy acetate card stock, just a little bit goes a long way!
My head is spinning with all the other fun TGF images that can be used for Pop Up Box Cards. :)

Side note: when I showed this to my daughter, she said I was channeling Princess Poppy from Trolls. Haha!

Have a wonderful day, everyone, happy crafting to you!

C.C. Designs July Release

Happy Release Day, everyone!
All of these amazing stamps are now available in the store for purchase:

For today's release, I played with one of the handsome Roberto's Rascals Lumberjack Guys:

What a manly man indeed!
I love his suspenders and timberland shoes, very outdoors-y. 😍
He is a perfect match with American Crafts Hot Cocoa papers.
Even though it's geared more towards Winter time,
the patterns are definitely log cabin cozy. 💓

Head on over to the store right now and pick up these cuties,
we can't wait to see what you create with them!
