Sliding by to say Hi!

Good morning friends!
Tasha here sharing a card created with the New Penguin Plunge stamp set from Dare 2B Artzy!

This new penguin themed stamp set is so cute and includes several sentiments for year-round cards and projects. The sentiment selected for this card is "Sliding by to say Hi!" and it was stamped with Totally Black Ink. I also used two banner dies from the Slim Mini Wavy Layers Die Set to frame the greeting.

The sweet penguin and floating ice were stamped with Totally Black Ink and colored with markers. I placed the image in the center of the card to have all the rays surrounding him. This stamp also has a coordinating die set that makes it super easy to cut all the stamped images out.

The background was created with my favorite Sunburst Stencil and two shades of Distress Oxide Ink. I wanted to have an Arctic look. To do this, I made the top half purple to represent the sky, and the bottom half has shades of blue for the water. I also added little white gel dots to look like falling snow; so pretty!

Lastly, I attached silver glitter paper for extra sparkle and a layer of the new snowflake paper from the Deck the Halls Paper Pack before adhering it to an A2 sized blue card base.

Thank you for checking out today's project and I hope you enjoyed a peek at the new D2BA Penguin Plunge Stamp Set!

Hey Ghoul Friend!

 Happy Friday Ai Fans!

Tasha here sharing a Halloween card created with the fun Ghoul Friend Set. This card was inspired by the Shaken, Not Stirred Challenge and is a great card to send to a friend this Fall!

The images were all stamped with black ink and colored with Copic Markers. For the background, I used Distress Oxide ink around the edges to give a glowing look and I love how the yellow adds a spotlight to the pair! These friends look like they are having a fun time at a Halloween party with their wine and cute costumes!

The greeting "Happy Halloween" is also included in this set. I used the same black ink for the stamping and the leftover orange ink to add some color to the sentiment. 

Lastly, I added layers of silver glitter paper and spiderweb pattern paper to continue with the not-so-spooky theme. 

Thank you for checking out today's project and I hope you are inspired to create a card for the Shaken, Not Stirred Challenge!

Let's Chill Card

Hello Friends!

Tasha here sharing a card created with the new Bear With Me Stamp Set from Maker Forte!

This set can be used year round and for all seasons. I thought this cute bear would be perfect as a polar bear and since he seems like he is looking up, I thought he could be checking out a full moon.

The bear was stamped with gray ink and I used masking paper to cover the image before ink blending.

The moon was created with the cool Mountain Full Moon Stencil Set. This moon has so much detail and the set includes the masking area and the moon pattern. I also used the same ink colors on the mountains. This stamp is from The Hedgehog Hollow April 2021 Subscription Box.

The greeting is from the All Seasons Sentiments Slimline paper collection. The Let's Chill fits perfectly above the mountains and looks great matted with silver glitter paper!

Lastly, I matted the card with silver glitter paper and added some white gel accents to the sky and water. I also attached a layer of pretty pattern paper from the Rosey Days Paper Pack before glueing it to a white card base.

Thank you for checking out my project and I hope you are inspired to create with the Bear With Me Stamp Set!

Art Impressions Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Exclusive!

Happy Labor Day!
I am so excited to share with you a card made with the Art Impressions exclusive "Hug in a Mug" Set created for Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember!

This set is too cute and is perfect as we head into Fall! 

I stamped the image with black hybrid ink and colored the friends with Copic Markers. I love sweater weather and these happy friends look like they are having a great time chatting with their hot cocoa!

The sentiments included in this set are really fun, but I love the "I Go Loco For Hot Cocoa!" greeting! I stamped it with brown ink and used Distress Ink to add some color to the edges.

The background was created with a brick stencil and two colors of Distress Oxide Ink. I thought mixing the colors gave a more realistic look to the brick wall. For the ground, I masked off the brick design and added two shades of gray Distress Oxide Ink to look like concrete.

Lastly, I layered a piece of gray plaid paper to mat the center card and sentiment. I also used a white gel pen to write "Hot Cocoa" on the mugs to complete the fun design.

Thank for for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed a peek at the exclusive Hug in a Mug STAMPtember set from Art Impressions. 
Remember, this set is only available from Simon Says Stamp and once it's gone, it's gone!

Pumpkin Spice Card!

 Happy Friday!

Tasha here sharing a new Fall-themed card created with the super cute Feast Mode Stamp Set from Art Impressions!

The sweet fox was stamped with black ink and colored with Copic Markers. I masked off the image and used two stencils to create the autumn background. I blended multiple shades of Distress Oxide Ink for the falling leaves and stones on top of cream paper. I love the warm golden shades!

After the ink blending was completed, I gently pulled off the masking paper and colored the Fox. This cute fox looks so happy enjoying the Fall day with his warm drink; I am so excited for sweater weather!

The sentiment, "Tis the season for Pumpkin Spice" was stamped directly on the stenciled stones. I'm a big fan of all things pumpkin and thought this was a great greeting for this card!

Lastly, I added coordinating layers of cardstock and a pretty orange plaid paper to complete the card. I also added some gold, white, and metallic bronze ink to the background for more detail. I love how this design turned out and can't wait to send it out this Fall!

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

You Brighten My Day!

 Happy Friday Ai Fans!

Tasha here sharing a happy new card featuring the sweet Ai Koalas Set!

The cute koala image was colored with Copic Markers and used foam tape to raise the image up. Koalas are my favorite animal and just looking at this adorable koala makes me smile!

For the background I used a stencil and a variety of Distress Oxide Inks to create the design. I love how this pattern frames the koala and gives him a rainbow spotlight. 

For the sentiment I used the "You brighten my day" stamp from the WC Sentiments Set. This greeting was perfect for this bright and colorful card and I enjoy mixing my stamp sets on cards. For a little more detail, I cut a simple banner and used orange ink around the edges. I also added a few pink glitter enamel dots for extra sparkle; I love the pink!

To complete the project, I added layers or orange card stock and gold glitter paper. These colors are so pretty and this card would be great to send to someone special any time of the year!
