Honey Bear and Flowers Designed 2 Delight cards

Hello and welcome.  I was a DT member for Designed 2 Delight way back in the day.  Unfortunately, the artist is no longer with us, but I still adore her creative stamps.  So I'm sharing a couple cards using D2D stamps as the focus:

I find this little honey bear to be just so delightful.  The background is made with a cloud stencil, fussy cut the image, and added the sentiment from from Cardz TV Sweet Sayings.

My second card features a mouse party.  Added a little ribbon and black string for interest.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

My cards meet the following challenges: Make My Monday: Birthday, A Perfect Time to Craft: Anything Goes, Crafts Galore Encore: Anything Goes, Crafty Animals: Anything with an Animal, and Critter Crazy: Anything goes with a Critter.

Spring Chickens Stencil Card Set

 Hello and happy January 2024!  It has been one heck of a busy life, but I guess that happens to all of us.

Today I would like to share a few cards made with Taylored Expressions Spring Chickens Stencil.

Now, I was not able to get the sentiment stamps that go along with this since it was sold out, so I had to make my own.

I used different colors of Ranger distress inks.

These multi step stencils are just the coolest.  I got a couple sets and once again, my new year goal is to use what I've got!

That's it for my first post of 2024.  Hopefully it won't be my last.  Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my latest creations!

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!

This meets the following challenges: Addicted to Stamps: BirthdayThe Crafty Addicts: Anything Goes, Digi Tuesday: Anything Goes, and Use Your Stuff: Flowers.

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.
