Computer Mice

I know it is hard to believe but it is time to think about going back to school!

Your kids may have a few more weeks before they report back but the time is ticking down!

So...this week the Stampendous Design Team are sharing their school inspired projects.

Here is my first card featuring computer mice from House Mouse Designs.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and colored with Prisma colored pencils.

These adorable mice are so fun!

C4C395: Hammock Day

July 22nd is a day to celebrate while relaxing in the shade of your backyard as it is National Hammock Day. A hammock, used for swinging, sleeping or resting, is a sling made of fabric, rope or netting, that is suspended between two points such as posts or trees.

So today's Crazy4challenges is to create a card for this holiday!

I found the sentiment in my stash and it's by Hampton Arts.
The patterned paper is Echo Park's, Party Time.

I colored the image with colored pencils.

I'm sure the rest of the Crazy4challenges team has made amazing cards so be sure and stop by and check them out and leave some love!

Love to Par-Tee

Happy Friday High Hopes Fans!

Have you checked out all the fun new stamps from the 
So Much Cuteness release?

Love them all!
Today i am sharing a few of the new images that I used to create this fun golfers birthday card!

I created the background panel by stamping the ball and tee from the Golf Accessories Set multiple times on the white panel.
I colored the ball with my B000 copic marker.
I colored the tees with Prisma pencils (Violet, indigo, canary yellow, Crimson Red, Grass Green, & Orange)

The grass die cut is from Sizzix.
I colored Golf Pro with pencils too. (Crimson Red, Indigo, Sunburst, Chestnut & Peach)
Then I cut her out and adhered her to the card with 3D foam.

The sentiment is Par-Tee.

I hope you enjoyed today's High Hopes inspiration!

Christmas Gift Tags

 The Stampendous team members are doing a little Christmas in July with Bo Bunny papers this week.

I decided to start working on my Christmas tags.
I will put these on my families packages under the tree but they all know that they are to take them off the package and return them to me for reuse!

I created tags out of my Bo Bunny paper.
This tag was made with Owl be Home Cling Stamps and dies.

This cutie was created with Seated Elf Cling Stamps and dies set.

And for my final tag I used Smiling Snowman Cling Stamps and dies set.

All the colored images were done with Prisma color pencils, and blended with gamsol and blending stumps. 

You can check out more inspiration on the Stampendous Blog!

Happy Tuesday!

I have another rainbow card to share with your today!

I made this using the Rainbow2stamp set from The Stamps of Life.

I used the Stand up circle card die for this card.
This is how it looks when it is closed up and ready to mail!

I colored the rainbow with the Solids4rainbows stamp set.

The paper is from the Happy Collection paper pad.

I die cut the clouds out of Powdered Sugar Felt.

Such a fun card that anyone would love to receive!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a great day!

Holiday Place Cards

I know i'ts only July and seems a little early to think about Christmas but I try to knock out the easy projects in the summer so that I am not doing them last minute during the hustle and bustle of the season.

I thought it would be fun to make crafty table decorations this year!

I'm not quite done but I'll share what I've completed so far.

First I am making these quick and easy place cards
with Stampendous stuff..

I started by cutting the base out of vanilla paper. 4 1/4" x 4 1/2" and folding in half

I stamped and die cut the gifts using stamps and dies from the new Seated Elf Cling Stamps and Dies. This fun Bo Bunny paper means no coloring on this project!

I added a layer of Bo Bunny paper to the tags and then a slightly smaller layer of vanilla paper.
I stamped the names with letters from the Vintage lowercase stamp set. 

I also made some napkin holders to match the placecards.

Both of these are projects the kids or grand kids could help you with!

I started by cutting a toilet paper roll into 3/4" pieces.

I cut a 1" by 6" strip of Bo Bunny paper out and ran it through my Xyron to add adhesive to the back.  Then I wrapped it around the ring.

The I glued the previously die cut gifts to the ring and wala!
A cute napkin holder is ready!

These projects are quick and easy to make and will make your table look great this season!

Hope you enjoyed them!
