Super Boy

I don't know why but I struggle so much with masculine/boy cards. I was excited to see Super Boy in this month's release from Whimsy Stamps (there's a Super Girl too!! FUN!!)--it was fun to switch it up and make a boy card and it all came together easily with this awesome stamp. 

My only dilemma was what colors to use. LOL! I immediately thought of red/white/blue but decided to go for something a bit different. I like the end result!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges~

Be Yourself

Today I have a card for you using the stamp, Wild Sprout Elena from The Greeting Farm. I took a trip down memory lane while looking at my stamps today. It led me to look through the gallery for The Greeting Farm on SCS. Very cool to see the progression of stamps and card makers. I saw some names that I no longer see now which makes me sad but things happen and people move on. 

I just know that crafting is my passion and it makes me happy so I don't see me giving it up anytime soon!

This card started out being for a challenge to use orange and sort of took a totally different direction! LOL! Guess I'll try an orange and yellow one again later!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges~

Have a wonderful day full of happiness and I hope to see you again soon!!

**editing this to add that for her hair I used the following copics- YR21, E97, E99 and E39**

Baseball Love

My goodness, it has been forever since I've created. Okay, not forever but two weeks which equals forever in my world. Last week was the kids spring break so I spent time with them vs. crafting. I must say we had a great time and one of the highlights was feeding alligators at the zoo!

Does anyone else feel "rusty" at coloring/putting together a card after they've taken time off? I sure do but figured I'd just dive in!

Many of my friends are excited for baseball season so I chose to color up the fun Baseball Love from Whimsy Stamps!

I'm entering this into the following challenges~
Hope you have a wonderful day! I have a few errands to run but hoping to still find to craft a little before heading back to work on Thursday!

Stamps~ Whimsy Stamps-Baseball Love
Ink~ Memento Tuxedo Black,
Cardstock~ misc white, SU Real Red

You Rock!

Hello there!! Today I have a card to share that was so much fun to make!!

First I colored up the newly released, Number One from the Art by Mi Ran collection at Whimsy Stamps. I used my copics and really had fun giving her jeans texture. I had posted these photos on Instagram and Facebook and then realized several people didn't know how to do this technique so I thought I'd just explain as it's a really fun and easy technique to use!

Once you have the area colored that you want to add texture, in this case the jeans, you'll need some colorless blender and some fabric, in this case a swatch of denim. (I would do this technique before you color around the area you're adding texture to so that it doesn't accidentally get onto other colored areas)

I didn't get photos of the next step but it's super easy. Just put a little of the colorless blender onto the fabric/denim and then set it onto your colored area. I push it down for a few seconds and then remove. Let it dry and voila', instant texture.

You can experiment with different fabrics to achieve different results. I have used an old towel for a "fuzzy" texture on an animal before. The possibilities are endless!!

Here's the end result of the jeans~

To finish my card I had fun with the Whimsy stamp set, Distressed Backgrounds and Ink Splats. To finish it off I used my favorite Whimsy sentiment set, Everyday Moments.
