Life Is Beautiful - Blog Hop

I have a new release that I hope you will enjoy.  I can't wait for you to visit the other gals blogs too to see all the wonderful creations. 

We have a wonderfulcolorful hop for you to enjoy today. The stamps are available for purchase now, you will want them all by the end of the hop. 

  I decided to make a card using "Bird on a Branch".  I colored and cut out 3 stamped images and layered them to give it dimension.  It was relaxing to sit around and just cut the image...over and over...and over.   Remember when your doing image piercings you do not have to color all the images, just the edges that you might see.   This stamps would be perfect for any occasion.

I used a Karen Burniston die to create the feel of the bird actually "hanging out" on a branch.  I love how these dies have a fun interaction.  the possibilities are endless.  You can find her dies through Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Comment on each blog, because 2 of them hold the prize. What is the prize???  Two lucky winners will win 2 stamps from the hop. The winner will be announced on Sunday February 1st at 8:00 pm est

If you have gotten lost along the hop, here is the order . . .

This card was quick!  Even though it is simple it has impact.  Yes, you can complete a whole card only using two Copics...who would have thunk it! (Yes, I know thunk isn't a word...but its fun to say)

Love You More

Here is a beautiful rose from Stampendous.  I am usually not a huge fan of roses...let me rephrase that...I don't enjoy coloring roses.  I LOVED coloring this rose!!!  I used a sentiment from the clear set called Life Words.    I am very pleased with the end result.  if you love flowers this is one to get your hands on.  I hope you enjoyed this little bit of inspiration...TONS more Stampendous stamps will be shown over the next month as I have been stock-piling some cards.

Some things are better left untouched...what i mean is that it is okay to leave white.  Leaving white can give your image a little POP.  Don't you think it worked well with this image?  I do!

Crazy4Challenges Opposite Day

Did you know that tomorrow is National Opposite Day and Crazy4Challenges Blog is celebrating? To celebrate this funky holiday make a card/project that has opposites on it. Think opposite colors on the color wheel, stripes and polka dots, black and white, mirror image, etc.
I decided to go with opposite colors...what is better then an orange and blue combo....NOTHING!  It actually happens to be my favorite for card making.  For this card I used a NEW release from Dustin Pike in rubber through CC Designs.  I joke that he is actually farting in the coffee...cause I think I am funny that way you know...like a cowboy bubble bath?  Okay, maybe i am not so funny but it sounded funny in my head.   You could come up with so many funny sentiments for this one!  Well ya'all have a good day...snicker.
