Birthday sMOOches

Good morning everyone!

Bugaboo Stamps is celebrating their 10th Annual Birthday Bash and the theme this year is Down on the Farm! I love working with these adorable images so I thought I would play along in a few of the challenges this week!
Today's card features the cute Bobblehead farm cow and it's colored with Copics. The die cut sentiment is from My Favorite Things and the stamped sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I used a Pink & Main die for the stitched rounded rectangle, a My Favorite Things die for the stitched scalloped border and the stitched clouds were cut with a Taylored Expressions die. For the background- I sponged a piece of mixed media paper with Mermaid Lagoon & Cracked Pistachio oxide inks, once dry I added Mermaid Lagoon ink to Kaisercraft's Waffle embossing folder, spritzed it with water and then ran it through my Cuttlebug... I really like how it turned out!  

Well, that's all for now- Thanks so much for stopping by... I'll see you tomorrow :)

For a Child...

Good morning everyone and Happy New Year!!

Today is the start of a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas and this month we would
like you to create a card for a child. My cards feature a fun image from Bugaboo Stamps and the sentiment is included :) I love the sentiment... perfect for a child! 

The images are colored with Copics and on this card I used My Favorite Things pierced rectangles, Carta Bella papers and white glitter enamel dots. 
And on the card below I used Avery Elle & My Favorite Things stitched dies and a Cuttlebug die for the snowflakes. The paper is from Bazzill and to finish it up I added sequins and some shimmer with a gold glitter pen.

Santa's Little Helper...

Good morning everyone!

Today I'm sharing a couple of Christmas cards that I created with Tim Holtz  products... I used 'Santa's Helper' dies, 8x8 Christmas paper pad and Walnut Stain Distress ink. 
I made several of these and I'm so proud of myself because they are flat and require no extra postage!! :) The base is a beautiful oatmeal color of kraft cardstock and on these two I used a glittery black cs for the elf and some silver mirror cs on the first one. I also used a black velvet cs on a few of the elves and they turned out so pretty IRL but were hard to photograph. 
These were so fun to make and I really like how they turned out and no stamping was involved!

I'm not sure if I will post again before Christmas... so I wanted to wish you all a very
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
And thanks so much for stopping by... I truly appreciate the comments you leave.
Hugs, Tammy
