V's Sweet Ideas Spots and Circles Challenge


Hello!!! This is my first post of the day so check back later to see the new Poppy Sketch Challenge... Now onto sharing the new challenge for V's Sweet Ideas!!! We are all about circles and spots this month, so start those creative muscles and get spotty/dotty with us!  Here is my take on the challenge:


Supplies Used:
Stamps: V's Sweet Ideas ( Life Recorded Set)
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Memento
Dies: Lawn Fawn
Sequins: V's Sweet Ideas

I started this card by die cutting the hearts onto separate cardstock and tracing the hearts onto the cardbase.  I then filled my traced hearts in with dot images from the Life Recorded Set in various colors.  I layered the negative die cut onto the card base, stamped the sentiment and adhered sequins! :)  Make sure you stop by Vanessa's Store to pick up the new Lawn Fawn products she just got in!!!

I am also adding this to the Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes Challenge and the Work It Wednesday Challenge!

Can't wait to see what you will be creating!
Happy Crafting/Labor Day!

I stamped the rock images on separate cardstock with the sentiments inside of them.  I then colored and fussy cut them.  I adhered them with foam adhesive and stamped smaller rock images on the sides.  Finally I stamped my sentiment and heart image in red and colored.  For a finishing touch I added one scoreline along the bottom of the card and two up top.

Thanks for visiting and happy Hopping!

Sneaky Peeky Day #3 at TAWS!!!

Hello, hello!  Happy Friday and sneaky peeky day for The Alley Way Stamps!!! Double woo hoo!!!  Today I have the privilege to show you a bit of Stomper Stamp Set, which has all kinds of cuteness and some pretty awesome sentiments too!  Make sure you stop by The Alley Way Stamps Blog to check out more sneaky peeks of this awesome set!



My background was actually created from left over ink on my craft mat from an earlier project, yay!  I simply pressed my watercolor paper into it and soaked it up in this tie dye effect.  My little dino was stamped and watercolored with distress markers and a waterbrush. I did the same thing with the speech bubble from the KA-POW stamp set.  I raised them with foam adhesive and then I added in some gold thread.

Bubble Fun Layout

Hello and Happy Wednesday!  I LOVE the layout I'm sharing with you today... it was so fun to create, and just came together on it's own... and I just love when that happens!  Most of the products I have used came from a kit I won through CliqueKits... so check them out!




See all of those fun circles?  I made those by removing the lids to my spray mists and drawing with the end of the nozzels!  So much fun!  The yellow was created with a paintbrush and yellow Mr. Huey!  This layout was based on two challenges as well...

Color Me Scrappy: #68 Summer Challenge


Creative Scrappers: #274





Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Heidi Swapp, Simple Stories, AC
Embellishments: Fancy Pants, CliqueKits Cutup, Sequins from CliqueKits, Pinkfresh, OA, American Crafts
Mists: Heidi Swapp, SC and Ranger


Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a fabulous week!
Happy Crafting!
