Buy Happiness

Hello Rubbernecker fans!  I have some exciting news!  Rubbernecker Stamps is a sponsor for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  You can pop over to the blog and check out the great prizes Rubbernecker Stamps will be offering.  I got this adorable owl just in time to make a card for the occasion.

This is Preston! Isn't he just the sweetest?!  He has a number of friends in the shop as well.  Check them out while you are there!  Preston was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  The sentiment is Buy Happiness and the images on the sentiment came from the Coffee Blanket stamp set.  I cut them out using the matching dies.  Preston and Buy Happiness are red rubber and the Coffee Blanket set is clear.  I love the clear sets from Rubbernecker Stamps.  They stamp crisply and clean up like a dream.  I used a couple of the new sets of nesting dies too.  These cross stitch dies come in all of the basic shapes!  I used the square and the rectangle set.  Love them!  The background paper is from Nitwit Collections and is part of the Coffee Talk bundle.

Have you heard that there is a new Rubbernecker Stamps Fans group on Facebook?!  If you use Facebook, come join us!  We would love to see your projects and show you ours!  We are going to have challenges as well.  Pop in and say hello.

Monster Birthday

Hello!  If you visit the Creative Knockouts challenge this week, you are bound to get a bit of fur on you.  Our challenge is furry friends, so I hope you are not allergic!  Grab your lint roller and head on over to the blog!

This is Valentine's Monster Love - 1 by Drawn by Krista.  I merged the three adorable monsters together to create this image.  I used the Silhouette software to detach them from the background and layered them together.  This is another birthday card that will get added to the stash.  Although, I am pretty sure I know which co-worker will be receiving this one. =P

Our sponsor this week is Di's Digi Stamps.  You have a chance to win a $12 gift certificate to be used in her shop.  Click the link below to have a look around.

Magical Birthday

This week at Crafty Sentiments, the theme is anything goes.  We know how much you love it!  Let's see your projects!

This is Wizard Charlie.  He was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  I cut the star using my Silhouette and doodled some stitches on it.  The star border is a die from Rubbernecker Stamps.  I just got it and it worked so well for this image! His wand has some clear Wink of Stella on the star and gold on the sparkles.  His robe clasp, has silver Wink of Stella.

You have a chance to win some great prizes for playing along.

Hope to see you there!

It is time for my Rubbernecker Stamps feature post over on the Rubbernecker blog.  I have created a card using one of the Ethel stamps.  She is so sassy!!

I thought Ethel in Leotard matched well with the Chocolate Tastes sentiment.  I went with a cool color combo and let her stand on her own.  She was colored with Copic markers and I used her matching die to cut her out.  The banner is just hand cut.

You really need to check out our challenge if you haven't done so already.  You have a chance to win a gift certificate for the store.  There are so many great new stamps that have just been released.  I will be showcasing some of them in the coming weeks.  Be sure to stop back and take a look.

This is Merry Cow from Fabrika Fantasy.  I used Copic markers to color her and used the Silhouette to cut her out.  The sentiment was computer generated.

Spring Flowers

For our new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner, we are asking to see some flowers.  It is the time of the year when it starts to get warm and all of the flowers are blooming.  We want to see all of your gorgeous flowers.

This is Spring Faery from MoonFlower Digistamps.  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.  I made the wire embellishment and added a clear bead as an accent.  The foliage die is from the Spellbinders kit of the month for August 2017.  Every month, there is a new card kit, small die kit, and large die kit.  It is so much wonderful happy mail!

Time for the new challenge at Crafty Sentiments Designs.  This challenge this week is to use ribbon on your project.  Ribbon is one of my favorite embellishments!  I am so excited for this challenge.

I wanted the ribbon to be a major part of the design.  I chose Just for Fun for this project since she has a ribbon in her hair and on her shoes.  Then I created a ribbon detail to accent the whole thing.  I kept the sentiment and the final embellishment simple so the ribbon can be the main decorative element.  The background paper is from Nitwit Collections.   It is from the Confection fat quarter bundle.  The whole bundle is candy themed!

You have a chance win some great Crafty Sentiments prizes by playing along.  You don't have to use a Crafty Sentiments image, but if you do, you have a chance to win even more! 

I hope you will come play along.
