October YNS Sneak Peek Day 3!

Hey everyone!  It is day 3 of sneak peeks over at Your Next Stamp!  I love sneak peeks, they always seem to get my mojo going!  Today I get to show you Video Game Ethan, available in the store tomorrow!  I think he is adorable and perfect for all the boys, sometimes I think they have had the video game controllers growing out of their hands!

Paper: Basic Grey, Bazzill Card Shoppe, Copic X-Press It  Stamps: Your Next Stamp – Video Game Ethan  Ink: A Muse, Copic markers  Accessories: Your Next Stamp – Whimsy Star Layered Die

I gave this card to Darius, it was his birthday on Friday, and I think I finally got it right!  There wasn’t too much “stuff” on it! LOL  I hope you all have a great Monday and thanks for stopping by!


Farm Fresh Friday!

Hey everyone!  Time for this week’s Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm!  Naomi is our hostess this week and she has challenged us to make masculine cards.  I am always in need of boy birthday cards, actually Kieran asked me for one yesterday for one of his friends so I made this birthday card with CC Saturday.

Paper: Echo Park  Stamps: The Greeting Farm (CC Saturday), A Muse Sentiment  Ink: A Muse, Copic markers  Accessories: MFT Star Die-namics, Baker’s Twine, Brads.

I will be back in a little while with another card, until then have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm

Happy Friday everyone!  This week’s hostess for the Farm Fresh Friday Challenge is Naomi and she is challenging us to use classic patterns (Chevrons, stripes, houndstooth…) on our cards!

I stamped the always adorable Ian from the  Sitting Casual set onto X-Press It blending card with A Muse dye ink and colored him with Copic markers.  I then paper pieced the comfy chair and put it all together.

Paper: Echo Park  Stamps: The Greeting Farm (Sitting Casual)  Ink: A Muse, Copic markers  Accessories: Tim Holtz mini paper clip, twine, Pearls.

I have to get ready for Liam’s birthday party tomorrow, it is a little late this year but it was the weekend that worked best.  I will have 6 extra 12 year old boys here playing video games and air hockey and then a sleep over!  If I get any work done it will be a miracle!  I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Mister Old Fart!

Hey everyone, Happy Thursday!  Okay, this image of Gus and the matching sentiment from Bugaboo Stamps just cracks me up!  I love the bunny slippers!  I actually made this for my Step Dad’s birthday, I think he will get a laugh from it when it arrives.  I am also submitting this into this weeks Crazy 4 Challenges #68 Celebrate Something challenge.

Paper: Basic Grey (Max & Whiskers) Stamps: Bugaboo Stamps (Gus birthday)  Ink: Copic markers  Accessories: Brads, Twine, Nailheads.

It snowed here all day yesterday and we are supposed to get more again today!  I am so ready for spring to get here!  Oh well, I don’t have to go out so I should be able to get lots of stamping in.  I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #22

Happy Birthday!

Happy Thursday!  This week has been going by so quickly and very little has gotten done!  I have started the back to school shopping for clothes and shoes, not fun.  Next week I will do the fun part and hit Staples!  I love buying all the pens and pencils and markers.  🙂 

Today’s card was one I made up for the store by my Mom’s place.  I need to re-stock birthday cards, they seem to go the fastest out of all my cards.

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamps: The Greeting Farm Digi, The Cat’s Pajama’s sentiment  Ink: Amuse, Copic markers  Accessories: Fiskars punch, Pearls, Prima flower, Button, Twine.

I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Found Fisherman!

Happy Tuesday!   I am still slowly sorting and cleaning all of my stamping goodies and I am finding lots of things I just had to have at some point and have never used.  I am also getting side tracked as I find these treasures and decide that I have to use it now!  LOL   I’m sure I could go for a very long time without shopping and be just fine. I’m also very sure that Lee would be happy about that! 

Way way back when I saw this card that Sparkle made I knew that I could use this stamp!  So many of the men in my family and Lee’s love to fish so it would be perfect for them.  Of course I ran and bought it right away but the poor guy has not seen ink until now, I had actually forgotten all about him!

Paper: Bazzill, Basic Grey  Stamp: DogGone Stamps  Ink: Memento, Distress Ink, Copic markers  Accessories: Brads, Crate Words Rub ons.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
