SugarPea Designs #54


Hello my stampy friends!
Welcome to our 3rd weekly sketch challenge for May at SugarPea Designs

Here is this week's Sketch:


Here is my card :


I interpreted this sketch a little loosely!!!!

But aren't those little baby dinosaurs precious????? I colored my little dinosaurs and trees with watercolor pencils this time. I haven't used them in a long time!



I fussy cut one of the little dinosaurs and made him peek behind the tree! Unfortunately, I accidentally cut off his little horn on the top of his head. I figured I could pretend he was a preemie and it hadn't developed yet! ha!

Here are the stamps and Sugar Cuts that I used:

Paper Sweeties May 2016 Release Rewind!

Hello everybody!
It is REWIND Day here at Paper Sweeties




It's time to show you how easy it is to mix the newest Paper Sweeties Stamps and Sweet Cuts with older releases to make all kinds of cards and projects!


Today's card features several different stamp sets. The darling bees are from Bee Happy. The pretty posies are from Thinking of You. I stamped the bees and flowers with Black Memento ink and colored them with Copic Markers. The  images were then cut out with their matching Sweet Cuts!
The fun trail behind the bee is one of the new Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders
That border is what inspired my Bee themed card!!!!

The Card Concept Challenge # 55


Welcome to The Card Concept!





Hi!!! Hope everyone is doing well!!!!
I am still on a high from my son's graduation this past weekend! He graduated with his Master's in Fine Arts from UNC-Chapel Hill!  ! He is my sunshine!!!! 

Now onto my card!




I was inspired by the yellows when I created this card.
I pulled out another of my favorite Stampin Up stamps-Happy WatercolorsI started by stamping the flowers four times on Tim Holtz watercolor paper with Potting Soil Archival ink. I then water colored the blooms with Distress Markers. Next, I fussy cut the flowers.  I stamped the flower image onto scripted background paper and paper pieced the watercolored flowers on top.  I added some black Flower Soft to the centers of the flowers.The flowers have great dimension IRL! That fun sentiment is from Mama Elephant's -Labeled Messages.

I hope you have been inspired to play with us at 
We love seeing your wonderful creations!!
