Aren’t these little guys cute (Kitchen Sink Stamps)?  Love at first sight perhaps?  Either way, I love how you can create scenes with the chicks and egg.  Makes for cute cards and projects.  Thanks for looking!


I bought this Scallop Bag die last year and finally made something with it.  The chick and flower stamps are from Kitchen Sink.  I cut the grass by hand, stamped the heart, and added velcro to keep the bag closed.   The little chicks in this set are so sweet!

This card is a spin off of the Sketch Challenge 195 (SC195) over at SCS.  I used Holy Triptych for the image, Playful Christmas for the background stars, and Mona Lisa Moments for the sentiment.  I colored the three wise men with Copics and then cut them out.  I thought it matched well with the specialty paper, which is slightly embossed.  Thanks for looking!

In the 3 Step Teddy set from Kitchen Sink Stamps there are these really pretty flowers.  Even though this is a get well set I thought it would make a nice cheery card too!  This card is for a innovative and talented woman who is celebrating something special today!  TFL!

I just had to try a card with this sweet little bear.  It’s another one of the 3-Step stamps from Kitchen Sink and it’s the same ingenious method as the other 3-Step stamps.  I used Kraft card stock as my background paper and stamped a few flowers and stems, sewed the border, and distressed the edges.  The bear was stamped using Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa & Chocolate Chip (SU ink).  I colored the bandages in with a Copic marker, Cool Gray 1 (C1) to make them stand out a little.  I had no one in mind when I made this, so if some poor soul should come along and need it, I’m ready!

I needed a sympathy card for a friend of mine and wanted to try something different.  I decided to try stamping on mulberry paper.  I used really thick mulberry paper, the kind you’d use for tear bears.  I had stamped some really pretty peach roses on regular card stock, but found that on mulberry paper you need a bolder color for it to really stick.  I basically used the same colors but didn’t stamp off any excess ink.  I am happy with the simple look and wish my friend and her family well.  Thanks for looking!

I love these stamps by Kodomo!  I haven’t tried their stamps before and while I’m sure the rubber stamps are good, the clear ones are poor quality.  I knew I was taking a chance with these, but they were so pretty I just had to give them a try.  Also, not all clear stamps are the same…there are high quality clear stamps (quality photopolymer), like PaperTrey, Kitchen Sink Stamps, Verve, and the list goes on.  These, however, are cheap and don’t ink well. That being said, they do emboss okay and so that’s what I did with this card. If you click the second photo it shows the gold iridescent sparkle it has.  It’s really pretty in person.

I needed a get well card for my mother who just had minor surgery.  Problem is she healed so quickly that I didn’t even mail it to her!  How you like those beans?  I used some thick mulberry paper, the kind you use for tear bears and then paper pierced the outline of it.  The background lanterns are from Far East (Lizzie Anne Designs) and the sentiment is Get Well Teddy (Kitchen Sink Stamps).  I will probably give it to her anyway since I doubt I would need another Asian themed get well card!  LOL!
