SPD10: Undying gratitude

Hello crafty friends -

Time for another SugarPea Designs challenge and this week we are giving thanks. I used one of my favorite images from the Undying Love set to make this non-traditional colored zombie card. Who says zombies can’t be fashionable? ;)

C2C258 Aw nuts!

I’m back! How about a punny birthday card this time? I used the Party Grumplings stamp set and just a few embellishments to create this card. Super simple look to this one.


Love this squirrel – think I really nailed the grouchy/sneering look on this guy. To offset his grouchiness I added little butterflies. I picture him thinking “I’m so grouchy I’m sprouting butterflies”. Ha!


Here is a look at the sketch (I was very liberal with my take on it):

Merry and Bright Mailbox

Hello, Friday! Hello, weekend!

Had a busy week at work doing some intensive learning so I’m ready for a couple days off. And since I have a long list of crafty projects to work on I need to hunt down my inner crafter and put her to work with stamps and inks. Lol.

My first project for the weekend is this card I finally finished up tonight:


I used the new You’ve Got Mail – Christmas (TE) stamp to create a merry xmas card. Paper pieced the trees and the bow and colored the rest of the image with Copic markers. Added some White Liquid Applique to the white portions. For the little ornaments on the tree I used a white gel pen to color them and then applied Glossy Accents and a dusting of glitter.


Kept the rest of the card clean and simple. Just added a sentiment from Many Minis – Holidays (TE) and cut it out using a little frame from Shopping Bag and Labels die set (TE).

You are moovelous!

Hello, friends.

How about something simple, cute, and punny? I knew you would say yes. The Inspiration Emporium is now carry some of the Mama Elephant line of stamps and dies. I just had to give some lovin’ on the cute critters form the Cosmic Stars set.


In particular I thought the Taurus image was moovelous (marvelous with a bit of kick-butt cute moo-ness). I didn’t have the perfect sentiment so I built one using the Violet’s ABCs stamp set from Lawn Fawn and some Label Letters stickers. A little background for the cow, some enamel dots, and a bit of washi tape and I was done.


Hope you have a moovelous day! See you in a few with another project!
