Super Hero in Scrubs

A friend asked me to create a card for her niece, who is a nurse. I was more than happy to help out and so I went in search of a nurse stamp. I came across this image from Some Odd Girl Stamps and knew it would be perfect for what I wanted to do!

I colored the scrubs with copics and then went through my paper stash to find something that would match and this DSP from SU was perfect. The sentiment on the outside of the card is from a MFT set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of You

It's time for a new Sunday Stamps challenge and this week we have a fun sketch from Annette to play along with!

With all the people that are stuck home due to quarantine or stay put orders I immediately thought of the cabin from the SU set Rustic Retreat. The set also comes with a sentiment stamp that says 'Thinking of You' so I started off by stamping the cabin and coloring it and then stamping the sentiment underneath it and die cutting it all out with a circle die. I then grabbed some Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso DSP for my background paper and layered it on an Early Espresso base. Quick and easy, just the way I like it!

Make sure you head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us, we'd love to see what you do with this sketch!

Heart Full of Daisies

Hello to Friday! I hope everyone that has to stay put at home is hanging in there and finding stuff to do. Both my husband and I have whats considered essential jobs so not much has changed around my house. I will be going to day shift next week though so that is going to screw with my body for a bit. I'm not as young as I used to be and going from nights to days doesn't come as easy as it used too!

It's time for some Friday Fun with Power Poppy! For my card I used a digital set called Follow Your Heart. It's such a wonderful set, you can get a heart of roses, hydrangea or the one I used, daisies! I wanted something easy to color but yet something I could still get a nice pop of color with. The daisies were perfect for bringing in some green and yellow yet still providing a lot of white space.

With all that's going on in the world I wanted a sentiment that would be perfect for sending to someone who may be a bit stressed out. This sentiment from the now retired set Good Thinking: Renewal was perfect for what I wanted.

I also made this card to play along with the current Creative Confetti Challenge. Julie wanted us to go digital and use a digital stamp on our project. Power Poppy has such amazing digital sets that this was an easy peasy challenge to play along with :)

Are you ready to see what the rest of the Power Poppy team came up with? It will definitely brighten your day to see what these lovely ladies created, trust me!

Got You Covered

I'm really late but I'm finally getting my post up for Sunday Stamps! My husband and I were knocked out with the norovirus last weekend and if you have ever had it before you know how absolutely miserable it is! We're still really tired but at least I'm finally feeling like myself again!

We have a fun color combo this week at Sunday Stamps, perfect for any type of card! I decided to use a free digital stamp being offered by Whimsy Stamps. It's called TP Dudley and is just perfect for the current going-on's in the world right now!

I decided to color him green with orange accents. The other day when I pulled this dragon out I asked my husband what colors I should use. My Dungeons and Dragon playing husband immediately said "red and black". I told him honey, this isn't a "I want to destroy your kingdom dragon" LOL After seeing me color Dudley with these colors and some other bright ones he agreed I had made the right choice :)

Make sure you head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us! If you are on a stay put or quarantine order now is the perfect time to join in some challenges :)

Reely Great Day

My friend Claire is the host this week over at The Paper Players and she has a fun sketch for everyone to play along with.

I've been playing along with The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge on Instagram and colored up this digital stamp from Power Poppy the other day. Since the oval in the sketch can be any shape I decided to use it for my card. I originally just had the white panel but I didn't like how it looked against the patterned paper so I added the chocolate backing, which made my shape go across the 2 strips a bit more than the sketch calls for.

Daffodil Hugs and a Big Sale!

It’s Friday and while I know a lot of people have had their lives turned upside down right now we’ve got some good news from Power Poppy! There is a HUGE sale starting today and trust me when I say that you won’t want to miss this. The sale applies to both clear sets and digital stamps so there is something for everybody! Head over at NOON CST to the Power Poppy shop and grab your favorite stamps!

My card today features one of clear stamps on sale, Daffodils. I love daffodils, they are such happy flowers!

I used one of the sketches from last weeks Creative Confetti challenge, although I had to alter it just a tad since I used a larger image.

Check out the wonderful creations the rest of the team came up with, and then go shop the awesome sale over at the Power Poppy shop!

Hoppy Easter

I haven't had time to play along with Freshly Made Sketches in a while but I really loved this weeks sketch so finally made some time to get a card done, even though it took me a few days to get it all together!

I used an older MFT stamp that I had in my stash and kept the coloring pretty simple. I embossed the top half of a white panel, layered the green plaid piece below the embossed section and then stamped the sentiment in orange on the bottom left. I then layered that panel on a green card base and popped up the image for the circle portion of the sketch. It's pretty sad that such a simple card took me about 3 days to get done, ugh!

There is still time to play along with this weeks sketch so head on over and check it out!
