DT Day for LBBS

Hey everyone today is my design team day for the amazing Little Blue Button stamps (links below). I posted a detailed video on my YouTube channel and a description and list of products and copic colors used on the LBBS blog also linked down below. But in case you missed all those I will share photos n a quick note on them. Today was crazy and my next post is gonna be a catching up post as its been almost a month since my last post That is just awful.

OK my first card to be honest it took me forever to do its a big scene card 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 base using the rubber stamp by LBBS Tea Time Jessica
I took out so many stamps and embellishments trying to figure out exactly what I wanted and what would work and boy did I use a lot of stamps LOL. Besides Jessica (of course) my fave part of the card has to be the window which is a Stampin Up stamp I stamped it then stamped the holly leaves around it, copic colored the wood n added B000 copic to the "outside" space of it. Next I used Lawn Fawn "Into the woods and stamped the tiny clouds in white ink. The tree limbs and birds are from SSS set from last months card kit. Lastly I added a bit of glossy accents to the "glass" of the windows. I really did have fun making it and am almost ready to upload my video series on scene cards Yay I have been having loads of requests for this. I always love to hear your requests.
   Back to the card LOL I kept the inside simple but decorated as I like to make the inside of my cards pretty but want my sentiment and handwritten message to be the highlight of the inside

I just contd with my Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two paper added a sentiment in black and red from PTI "Latte Love" The cute coffee cup is a stamp & die set from PTI "Scentimentals" Lastly a fabric sticker from Am Crafts "Bleeker Street" that just seemed to tie in perfectly.

My second card is an A2 card on PTI Winter Wisteria cardstock using one of the awesome digi images from LBBS Eris with Hot Chocolate. Shes so cool I just love her I printed her out nice and big and made her hair bright n fun. I chose lots of fun color combos on this card

It may look like theres a lot going on but its a very simple card its just the fun pops of color and whimsy that make your eye think theres a party on the page LOL.  As i said I printed her large so she would really be the focus I put her on some layered patterned papers from Dear Lizzy "5th & Frolic" Then I took this super cute thin wooden tag from Am Crafts that had dots on it in perfectly matching colors and stamped directly on it using Versafine "Onyx Black" ink and a sentiment from Fresh Squeezed Stamps "Hot Hot Hot" I added some small flowers from Michaels in purple, teal and pink. Lastly I couldnt resist adding this adorable epoxy donut sticker from Recollections She looked like she needed a treat cus her dragon is about to steal her hot chocolate or at least thats the impression I got LOL.

Again for the inside just layered my patterned papers and used another sentiment from Fresh Squeezed Stamps "Hot Hot Hot" and voila thats it LOL

I will show you a quick close up of my colored girls with link to the LBBS blog for the full list of copic colors and materials I used.

The tree is SSS "Givng Thanks". For the fence I used Impression Obsession "Fence Trio" die with kraft cardstock. The pumpkins are from PTI"Polkadot Parade #8" stamp & die. For the tree and pumpkins I used a mix of Hero Arts Shadow Inks in Soft Cantaloupe, Orange Soda, Red Royal, & Forever Green. As well as Jenni Bowlin "Brown Sugar". The dog is from a Penny Black set that I had already colored but not used for a different card. Lastly the speech bubble is a SSS die and the sentiment is from SP&Co "Mix n Match Sentiments:Family"

Paper Smooches Mad Scientist

Hey everyone sorry i have been gone so long as most of you know my dad passed away from cancer September 21st and it has been hectic and surreal and bittersweet, but I couldnt have made it through without the love and support from my online crafty family I love you all. I am gonna jump right into todays card as I am a bit busy today I made a card for my aunt she is a scientist and one of the scientists she works with is going to a different company and so she wanted a card.

Its 51/2 x 5 1/2 card on PTI "Enchanted Eveneing" cardstock
I used patterned paper from DCWV "The Homeroom Stack" then created the rest of my scene with stamps. The "periodic table" type hexagons are from Paper Smooches (PS) "Vogue Abode" The computer, computer mouse, e-mail envelope &comp mouse arrow are from PS "Teen Routine" and the scientist, white mouse, beakers, smoke, & hazard symbol, are from PS "Great Chemistry. My sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp "Apothecary Labels" stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black ink and clear heat embossed.
I added glossy accents to his glasses, all the beakers and the computer screen and some clear Wink of Stella to the smoke. I didnt want lots of glitter on a masculine card so the Wink of Stella was the perfect amount.

I kept the inside fairly simple though

I just used more patterned paper, another beaker and smoke. My sentiment is from Mama Elephant "Up and Away" I masked off some of it. the atoms beneath the sentiment are also from Paper Smooches "Great Chemistry"

I get asked a lot what types of stamps I prefer for my scene cards and I have to say no matter what type of scene I am working on I always flip through my Paper Smooches stamps and find some to use they are definitly a great investment go check em out. Thanks for stopping by.XOXO

DT Cards For Hot Rods Boutique

Hey everyone today I have 2 cards I did for the Hot Rods Boutique a wonderful etsy shop owned by Brittany H.

For my first card I did a shopping scene. I think I had back to school shopping on the brain LOL. I used Whimsy Stamps Kenny K "Madison Attitude" on a 5 1/2x 5 1/2 base from PTI Black cardstock.
I used patterned paper from Crate Paper "The Pier" for the background, ground & paper piecing. Next I die cut the door from blue Bazzill cardstock with Cottagecutz "Classic Ornate Door". The shelves are from brown Bazzill cardstock. The purse & shoe stamps are from Paper smooches "Retail Therapy" & "Pretty Momma". I also added some Recollections Purse embellishment & charms from my stash. The boot & hat boxes stickers are Colorbok "Foil Paris Fashion". I stamped my sentiment in Colorbox "Chestnut Roan" from SSS "Like Your Style" stamp set. Lastly I used a Studio Calico "Speech Bubble Veneer" inked it first with Prima "black Coal Chalk" then dabbed Versamagic "Cloud White Chalk".

The inside is kept fairly simple

I layered my patterned papers then stamped another sentiment & the hanger from SSS set. The purse & shoes are extras I had from the front of the card by Paper Smooches. The copic colors for the image will be at the bottom of this post.

For my second card I kept it simple but pretty.I used Whimsy Stamps "Sailorbays Sandcastle" image colored with my Prismacolor Pencils on a 5x 5 1/2 cardbase from Stampin Up "Gumball Green" cardstock

My patterned papers are from Crate Paper "Party Day". I used a Martha Stewart border punch on 2 pieces and layered them. Next I diecut my image with Spellbinders "Labels 8" then traced the outside of the same die onto Gumball Green cardstock to make a mat as the next size up die was far too big. I stamped Amy R "Beach Sentiments" onto patterned paper and heat embossed it with Zing "Metallic Green" powder then punched it with McGill "Vintage Label" punch. Lastly I added flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts & Recollections.

For the inside again clean & simple

I just layered patterned papers then stamped another Amy R sentiment in SU "Gumball Green" ink. I stamped another Amy R sentiment on another pc of patt paper then punched it out with the McGill Vintage Label punch and adhered it at an angle. Easy Peasy

I cut a square of acetate from some stamp packaging then made a frame from patterned paper using Spellbinders A2 Matting basics die. Then just adhered entire thing to card base. The summer banner is from Pink Paislee "Hometown Summer" onto patt. paper. Lastly I added a few MME Enamel dots. Fun & cute!
