Stop and Go Blog Hop


Today I'm hopping along with the fabulous Miriam Prantner and friends sharing cards made with her Neat and Tangled stamp set, Stop and Go.

Aren't these awesome?!?

I dusted off my Copics to color the traffic lights and used a sky and clouds patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Crate Paper collection for the background.

There are a few more stops on the hop:

Happy Easter!

This was up on the Glitz Blog earlier in the week, made with the Carpe Diem digital kit and a coat of crystal coarse glitter added to the bunny and a few sequins.  I can't wait to start eating chocolate bunnies!

Be sure to stop back tomorrow, I'm taking part in a blog hop featuring a super cool stamp set!

Today I've got a hybrid card made with the Real Life in Pockets Old School digital kit.  I was trying to come up with a sentiment to go with the Pac Man ghosts and I just kept thinking of how the game starts with Ready? in the middle of the screen.  I will use this as a birthday card.

Here is the kit

A whole lot of neon and 80's awesomeness!

Thanks for stopping by.

hop hop hop!


Can you believe that Easter is next weekend?  I can't wait!  Today I've got a quick post, a hybrid card made with the Creashens Hopalong kit.  Everything is a part of the kit except the sentiment which is computer generated using the Lunchbox font.

Thanks for stopping by.

Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday

Time for another Technique Tuesday Studio AE Blog Hop!

Today we're featuring the April 2014 stamp set, Good Times

I made a layout for today's hop

 I heat embossed the Today Rocks stamp from the Studio AE April set to give it a little extra pop!  I've also got stamps from Right Here Flair and the Straight Talk Hello die.  And, I used a sketch from April 2014 Pagemaps.

There are a few more stops on the hop:

April Storyteller

Happy Sunday!  Today I've got a few things made with the April Storyteller kit from Just Jaimee.  This first one, the card, you might notice has an ampersand and veneers.  This was a recent submission to Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking's October call that didn't get picked up.  The ampersand and "filling" are part of an alpha set included in the kit and so it the digital painted dots, then I just computer generated the rest of the sentiment and added the veneer potty people.

And here is a digi scrapped layout.  Jaimee didn't even know that we were learning to knit with orange yarn when she designed this kit!

And this is something new, a digital magazine!  Jaimee did a great job making this and it is pure eye candy.  If you have a few minutes to take a look you won't be sorry!

And just one more thing... if you have any interest in digital or hybrid I encourage you to sign up for Jaimee's Newsletter.  She offers deep discounts and freebies to newsletter subscribers that you won't want to miss!

Like a Boss


Today I've got a card up on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog.  True confession, this started out as my card for the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 130 which is to use ovals.  I'm not sure what happened when I was making it but it finished up not looking very CAS/clean and simple so I decided not to use it for the challenge.  But I still like it and it's always nice to have another masculine card in the stash.

I used stamps from Lotsa Links and Rad.  The labels are from Chic Tags and I think they're retired.  They came with all of the browning.  All I did was stamp the sentiments and rough up the edges.  The links are stamped with Fresh Ink Mojito and then I added a few Studio Calico veneers and some Tiny Attacher staples.

Thanks for stopping by.
