YNS DT Day: Fun Friday: I Love Honey

Hello to all and TGIF!! I am here to share with you yet another adorable creation using a super sweet YNS  Digital Stamp. As always when we do the monthly "Fun Friday" challenge over at the YNS challenge blog, we can create a card using the provided sketch or inspirational photo, for this card I used the provided sketch.
Here is my take on this sketch......
The digi I used on my card is called, "I Love Honey". I colored my image up using my spectrum Noirs by Crafters Companion. I embossed my striped paper, using my honeycomb embossing folder and then traced the honeycombs using my clear Wink of Stella pen, that my bestie Debbie sent me. My sentiment is by, My Pink Stamper. I finished my card up by adding a couple sequences randomly on my card.
You still have plenty of time to join in on the fun, I have seen many fabulous creations already, I cant wait to see more.
Be sure to head on over to the YNS challenge blog, to check out all of the details.
Hope you all have a great day, also be sure to stop back by on Saturday Feb 1st for our new Digital stamp release Bloghop!

I Dig You!

Well hello again, this is my second post for the day. I am here to share a card with you all that I made tonight using some new stamps I got in the mail by SugarPea Designs. I will be entering this card into their first challenge they have going on, the challenge is "Anything goes", using their stamps. Here is the card I created.....
Isn't he just the cutest little thing!?!? This stamp set is called "Go-Pher It", I colored this little sweetie in using my Spectrum Noirs. My papers all come from various 6x6 paper pads by Jillibean and AC. I added some red ribbon I had lying around and spruced it up by adding some fun Aqua Blue & Red, by Timeless Twine and a white button. I also added a couple twinkle goose bump rhinestones by Queen & Co.
One more little thing I added to my card was some clear Wink of Stella, to the rubies and light on my little gophers hard-hat.
Thank you all for stopping by and taking a peek at my card.

TTDT Day: Perk Up

Hello everyone, happy Monday!! I had an awesome late Christmas with my parents this weekend, my parents bought me, the Ebosser :) This is one big bad machine, I cant wait until I can mess around with it more and share my creations with it, with you all. Although I did not use my new gift for todays card, I did use new products and a style of card that I have never done before.
 I decided to tackle a Waterfall card. Since this months theme over at Timeless Twine blog is "Something New" I figured now was the time, to create one of these. The paper and stamps I used are also new, here is how my card turned out. 

I used some very bright and pretty Raspberry Pink Timeless Twine
SALE - Raspberry Pink Bakers Twine by Timeless Twine
My stamps are from this month SOMK by Peachy Keen Stamps, this is such an adorable set, I am so happy to be a member of the PK somk. I colored these sweet little images in using my Spectrum Noirs. 
My card file came from the online Silhouette store and it's by Lori Whitlock(just search waterfall card). 
I used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette, so I could use this adorable digital paper pack that I purchased from, this paper is by American crafts and is called Soho Garden Paper Pack 1. 
I hope you have enjoyed my something new!? Be sure to head on over to the Timeless Twine Blog to see all the fabulous creations that my DT sisters have been making.

Anyways, on a happier note I am excited to share that, I get to be a Twine-ista for yet another term!! I  I just love working with Stacy and her fabulous products, thanks for the opportunity Stacy, you know I Luv ya!
This month on the Timeless Twine Blog all the Twine-istas will be sharing creations that follow the theme "Something New", these creations may include, a new technique, new color of twine or new product from the store that we have never used yet or using a new tool to do your project etc.
My card features many new things & Ideas, here is what I created...
The only thing that is not new on my card, is the twine, but the way I tied it is  new. I found a knot tutorial on Pinterest and liked how this one looked so I gave it a try.
Twine's Used include:
Image of Gray Bakers Twine by Timeless Twine - "Graphite Gray"Image of Lemonade Yellow Bakers Twine by Timeless Twine™Image of Aqua Blue TIMELESS TWINE™
New Items Used:
Peachy Keen December SOMK-2013
Water Color Paints
Gelatos- Silver (Thanks Piali <3) love this stuff, I feel another addiction coming on, this was the first time I ever used this stuff.
New Techniques:
To create all the circles on my card, I actually cut out two different stencils using my Silhouette cameo.
Stencils Used: Circles Stripe Template & Tea Stain Stencil
This is my first time using stencils on a card and I love the effect that the water colors and Gelatos gave me.
 To finish up my card, I added a couple of star sequins and popped up my image using 3d foam squares. I hope you all enjoy my card and I hope I have inspired you to try some new things and use some of those products you have hoarding in your craft stash.
Thanks for stopping by!
