Sulky Rebel Polkadoodles Birthday Card

 Hello and happy Tuesday.  I'm here today to share a card for a special someone in my life.

The attitude on this girl is so perfect!  I created the background with ranger inks and attempted the acrylic splatter - again.  This time I think it worked out ok.  This cutie is Sulky Attitude Rebel from Polkadoodles.  They have great sales and I picked up a few of these a while back.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Whole Llama Love and the numbers are die cuts.

That's my share for today.  Thank you for taking a look!

This card meets the following challenges: Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, Polkadoodles: Anything Goes, Unicorn Challenge: No Designer Paper, and Die Cut Divas: Birthday (numbers and background).

Simon Says Daisies Birthday and Thanks Cards

Hello and happy Thursday!  Already nearing the end of June and wow, time flies.  I say that over and over because it's so true.

Today I would like to share a couple cards made using Simon Says Stamps Sunflowers and Daisies kit.  I got this quite a while back and again, determined to use my "new" stuff this year, I put these together:

I swiped the embossing folder with Ranger inks and I REALLY like the effect.

The bees are from Stampin Up Nature Walk and the sentiments are from past SU Paper Pumpkin kits.  The bees are heat embossed, so a bit of additional texture there as well.  Simple to make but I think they are appealing to the eye.

That's it from me for today.  I thank you very much for taking a look!

From the Heart Cupcake Flowers Catch a Bug cards

Hello.  Today I'm  back with more cards featuring From the Heart Stamps (also known as Designed 2 Delight).

On each of these, I was able to use up the extras from Stampin' Up paper pumpkin kits - again, using what I've got.  So on these cards, I have doilies, sequins, die cuts, and sentiment stamps from SU.

I'm also rediscovering all my designer papers.  I love handmade backgrounds, but there is so much gorgeous paper out there and I have a closet full!

I watched a tutorial on how to shade the jar using Copics - I think I did ok.

So that's it for today.  I've been enjoying looking through all my digi stamps and using my stash.  I feel like it's a challenge and an adventure!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

My cards meet the following challenges:  Crafting Happiness: Anything Goes with Optional Flowers, Cupcake Inspirations: Mother's Day, A Gem of a Challenge: Anything Goes, and Creative Inspiration: Anything Goes.

Bugaboo Pup and Elephant fun

 Hello and happy Tuesday.  It's warming up nicely where I'm at and everything is in bloom (read: I've got major allergies going on!).

Anyway, today I would like to share a couple of cards using Bugaboo images (no longer in business):

I have some older cards that I'm not overly fond of, but the backgrounds are good and I didn't want to just toss them.  So I'm making "new" cards using the backgrounds.

I really do wonder sometimes "what the heck was I thinking??" when looking at some of my creations.  But I do like these two better than the originals.  Again, both feature a Bugaboo image - I just love Bugaboo and miss them dearly.

Thank you for taking a look and have a great week!

These meet the following challenges:  Jan's Digi Stamps: Anything GoesUse Your Suff: Layers, We Love Stamping: Anything Goes w/option of Animal, and A Gem of a Challenges: Anything Goes.

Kiss Me Bullfrog and From the Heart Stamps

 Hello and happy Friday!  Another week down and hopefully a relaxing weekend to come.

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards featuring From the Heart Stamps (aka Designed 2 Delight).  The artist is no longer with us, but I always loved her talent and recently printed a few of her images that I haven't yet used.

This one features Bullfrogs and Butterflies.  I was unsure of the direction of this but in the end, I think it worked out ok.  Ever have an idea that just goes off the rails?  Well, this is that card.

I also made a card for my Mom - a just because I love her type of card.  She really is my biggest fan.  Anyway, the butterfly is from a FTH set, as an extra to the main image.  I used up a few extras from past Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kits - again, trying to use what I've got.  I'm also going through a few paper packs that have been stored for years in an effort to renew my creativity.

That's all from me for now.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

This meets the following challenges: Creative Fingers: Anything Goes, Alphabet Challenge: XOXO, Crafty Animals: Anything with a Critter, and Die Cut Divas: Anything with a Die Cut (both cards).
