Happiest of Days

I love the daintiness of this stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Happiest of Days.  I stamped the sentiment onto an oval die cut from Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I traced around the sentiment with Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker and sponged a bit of Tangerine Tango ink around the edges as well.
 The inside sentiment and the cake comes in the set as well.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Perfect Blend

It's Crazy 4 Challenges Perfect Blend challenge.  Create a card with coffee for inspiration in the form of colors, stamps or dies.  I thought I would use different shades of brown to make this masculine card.
I used the Tailored Tag to punch various piece of patterned paper to piece together on a Very Vanilla mat.  I distressed the edges just a little bit, stamped the sentiment from Vertical Greetings, add a bow tie using the Bow Builder punch and it's done!

I followed the punched pattern for the inside of the card and just a sentiment finishes off my masculine card.  


Happy Stampin', 
Raquel

Karen Burniston's Paper Pros - Spring Flowers

It's time for the Paper Pros Spring Flowers Challenge.  I used Katherine Label to stamp my sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s stamp set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  I added a strip of grass using Karen's Nature Edges die set.
And now it's Spring!  I used the Tree Pop Up along with Nature Edges and Katherine Label for the inside scene.  The die cut flowers were from a scrap piece of cardstock that I was practicing Brusho techniques.  I stamped a few flowers and a sentiment onto a Katherine Label.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Stencil and Dies

The Crazy 4 Challenges team are using dies to create a stencil to use on our cards this week.  I used Karen Burniston's Nature Edges to die cut a piece of scrap paper.  I used that wavy piece to sponge different colors all over the Whisper White panel.  I used punched a Starburst and put the raccoon in the opening.
For the inside, I used the Spinner Square Pop Up to animate another animal from the We Must Celebrate stamp set.  I used the punch from the front to adhere the little bear to it.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Thank You

It's a "Thank you for your help" theme with Crazy 4 Challenges today.  It's National Dr.'s Day and we all have a lot to be thankful for when it comes to Dr.'s and Nurses.  So we are making cards to show our appreciation.

I fussy cut out a flower from Springtime Foils DSP and colored it in with Stampin' Write Markers.  The paper is a little glossy and thicker than regular cardstock so it's so easy to move the color around to get shading.

Happy Stampin', 
Raquel

Crazy 4 Challenges - Cutie Patootie

Here's a cutie patootie challenge for you today!  The Crazy 4 Challenges Design Team are making cards or scrapbook pages with a child theme.  Blocks, playground - even a little red wagon if we so desire.
I couldn't help but use this cute Sale-a-bration set called Party Pandas.  I created masks for all 3 pandas, then stamped & masked away.  Aren't they cutie patootie?
For the inside I used Karen Burniston's Spinner Square Pop Up to add a peekaboo panda.

Happy Stampin',
