{Stamp Simply} Sing!

Good morning, friends!  Are you as happy as the birdy on my card this morning?  She's from a sweet JustRite set that I just got from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  I stamped her on white cardstock and colored her, and after I cut her out I shaped her little body and attached her to my Baby Buntings card base with a square of 3D foam.  I love how she looks rounded!  I pulled out some On Trend paper from My Mind's Eye for my background and followed the sketch over at Your Next Stamp for my layout.  Here's my Stamp SImply shopping list...

Have a happy Thursday!

The Strength of My Heart

It was a "play along with some challenges" sort of afternoon and the challenge at Retro Rubber was May flowers.  When I started to look through my older flower stamps this verse from Our Daily Bread caught my eye, and since their challenge this week includes the word "beautiful" and the picture has flowers, I thought it would be perfect with an old Flourishes pansy - now retired.  "The Challenge" also had flowers in their photo - perfect!!
I stamped off the pansies and colored them lightly with copics.  Then I embossed the verse over the top.  Just a sweet and simple card with some classic stamps and a message that never will go out of style.


Thanks for stopping by!

{Deconstructed Sketch} Hugs from Watson

Stamps:  Watson (Taylored Expressions), TAC set (Retired); Paper: MME Notable; Ink:  GKD Wild Cherry, GKD Black Onyx, Memento Black; Dies:  Watson (TE); Fence and Grass (Sweet n Sassy), Stitched Flag (MFT); Other:  Buttons, Scrappers Floss, Acetate, Spectrum Noir Markers, 3D Foam, Heart Glitter

I have a card to share for this week's Deconstructed Sketch featuring Watson from Taylored Expressions and a sentiment from a retired Angel Company set.  We got to choose our own sketch this week, so I chose #157 because it looked perfect for a shaker card.  I just love coloring Watson.  He's so precious. : )  And I love having the matching dies for him.  It's Soooooo much easier than cutting him out!!

Thanks so much for dropping by!


{Stamp Simply} A Song in Your Heart

This card just makes me smile!  The Celebrations cardstock is such a pretty color and the wreath is so leafy and delicate.  It's like a little bit of spring!

I made a narrow card today - 3.5" x 5.5".  I used the JustRite Rose Garden stamp to make my subtle background, then stamped the wreath, flowers and bird and cut them out.  I colored the flowers and the bird with Spectrum Noir and copic markers and arranged them on my wreath, then I popped up parts of the wreath and added a sentiment stamped on a Spellbinders Petite Pennants die.

Here's my Stamp Simply shopping list!
