What a Moose-ical Genius

If you are familiar with my blog you know of my weakness for anything "rockstar". I adored my younger brother and his band when I was younger. So much that I was usually thier chaufffeur to and from each others house and down to 7-11 for a snack. But I digress :) When I saw this stamp by Crissy Armstrong, I had to have it! I think he is super rockstar and love all the details in the stamp! It took a while to do him justice but finally I was pleased! I hope you like the card as much as I liked working on it!

Birthday Wishes

I tend to think my crafting style is very simple and basic. So when I found Digital Doodles by Kathy Martin I fell in love! I adore the simplicty and beauty of her stamps! They are so incredibly versatile too! My first card I made was a birthday one using the cake image. All of the paper is October Afternoon. Go check out some of her design teams work! It's beautiful!

This week we are gettin ready for Mother's Day, so pop on by to get some great ideas on how to tell Mom just how important she is! This week my shaped card was this super fabulous high heel!

Give peas a chance!

I didn't have lots of time to work on cards or anything this week but when I found this adorable image from Pixie Dust Studio I made time! Thier current challene is to use a tag in the card, so I made mine kinda like a banner of ribbon accross the middle of the card. The paper is from We R Memory Keppers - 72 & Sunny and the buttons are Sassafras. And the colors also work for the challenge at Digi Doodle Shop's Best.

And now a little fairy dust...

Prairie Fairy is having a design team call! I just found this company through a friend and LOVE them! I have a wishlist of stamps next to the computer! Thank heavens it's payday week! LOL But really if you haven't been by there go check it out! This was the card I made, I love this sweet little fairy! I decided to paper piece her dress and the flower first, and then colored the rest of her in with my Copics. Her wings are sticked. The flowers I used were paper roses, which are VERY easy to make but I had never made them so small before! I used my computer to generate the sentiment. All of the paper was from Vintage Morning line. And I used the sketch from Stamp with Fun by Emmi41. Prairie Fairy thank you for such a great freebie!

Time for some Dippin Dots Digitals!

It's Dippin Dots Digitals at Paper Popsicles today! Make sure you go see what great goodies the rest of the DT has made! I got to work with two adorable monsters (and no I don't mean my boys :)I decided to paper piece my little monster and and add him to some fun candy bar sliders! Candy bar sliders are some of my favorite party favorsor just great for a little treat for someone. And of course some stitching around the monster and across the letters at the bottom! Hope you enjoyed my little treat!

::Super sweets for birthday week at Paper Popsicles::

This week is birthday week at Paper Popsicles and we celebrating with some super yummy sweet treats! The shaped card I worked on this week was a strawberry! I instantly wanted to make my favorite kind - chocolate dipped! (everything is better dipped in chocolate) To make mine I used liquid applique waited the 24 hours then heated it so the choclate puffed up! Then added LOTS of brown glitter! Then I free handed the stem and leaves and rolled them through my paper crimper. And then printed out the sentiment and used my spellbinders to cut it out!

The digi I got to work with was a piece of cake, er... I mean pie! ::HAHA:: I LOVED coloring this image! I must have 6 or 7 colored just waiting to be made into cards! On thins one I colored it with my copic markers then added glossy accents to the filling and cherry. I decided to just make a very simple card so that the pie was the main focus! Hope you enjoy my work this week!

::My Drummer Boy::

I was BEYOND thrilled when The Greeting Farm posted this awesome drummer boy as a digi! As soon as I saw it, I thought of my brother, who happens to be a stinking AMAZING drummer! I colored the drum set like his first custom set. One I heard every detail of as he saved up the money to buy it. I loved how he was so passionate and knowledgeable. He is and will always be my "Rock Star"!
I thought it fitting to use the great sketch provided by Cindy Haffner at TGF! And Iwas also able to use the recipe at I Love Digi Challenge Blog! 3 papers (a dark green, the polka dots and puple are 1 paper double sided :) and a plain purple which I stamped the sentiment & printed sheet music for my own designer paper) 2 brads, and 1 embellishment my crazy netting ribbon! Hope you like it!
