Flocking Fabulous

Do you want a little wit and sassy humor on your cards?  Then you MUST check out the new store Witt and Sass.  The artist, Amy, is a quirky, talented artist and just opened up her own line of stamps.  I got to play with Tropical Party clear stamp set and created this fun card for the release.

I did some random stamping of the little flip-flops on the background paper and then drew lines to connect them using a Multiliner.  I then colored them in, all bright and cheery.  BAM...custom background to compliment the main image!

Adios Hippos

When I saw this hippo from Hello Goodbye and all I could imagine was a hippo on a tightrope.  Here is my rendition of it using a banner die as a tightrope.  I added him to a cloud background to give the allusion of being up in the air.  I think this C.C. Designs set is just the cutest.  Dancing hippo, dancing cow...and an alligator...yes please!

Apple Branch

Here is a little inspiration for you using the Apple Branch from Whimsy stamps.  This delicious stamp is refreshing to color and can be colored so many different ways.  How about even adding a worm poking out to say hello?
For this card I used the NEW Notched Rectangle die for the apples mat.  I love this set of dies and it gets used a lot.  I added cork to some buttons and background using X-Press It Cork Deco Tape to give it a more country feel.  I love this cork tape.  Easy to use, cut and tear.  

Here is another variation of the stamp.  Given the details in the stamp it is actually quite easy to color up.

Ssssssssseee, I Do Care

How about the cutest slithering snakes around combined with your fabulous card making to create the perfect card?  This Nope Rope clear set is great for all occasions.  The title of this set cracks me up and is fun to say too.  That in itself is reason enough to buy it.
I used the Card Maker Window die set to make the inner mat and outer frame.  Love the stitching placement.  I added a fun element made from the Spring Tree (cut in half) from La-La Land.  I think it finishing it off perfectly.  You can find the items used at the link below.

Ciao, Ciao Cutie Cow

As soon as I saw this clear set, Hello Goodbye, from C.C. Designs I knew I had to get my hands on it!  Oh my gosh...snicker, snort!  Look at that face...and the utter...ok, utterly hilarious!  I love fun laughable stamps don't you?

You have to get your hands on this one before it sells out.  I added some great dies from La La Land.  You can find them in the La-La Land Crafts store.  I love the grass...quite different from other grass borders that I have seen.  Paired up with the great Country Fence rounds out this funny bovine perfectly.

Look at all the fun characters with major personality!

You're My Hero

You know how much I love these little penguins from Whimsy Stamps.  This one was super fun to color.  The set comes with sentiments too.  First I random stamped the background with the sentiment and then stamped one extra for the base of the image.  After stamping the Penguin Hero I colored him up in the "superman" color combos.  I fussy cut him out and popped him up.
I added the favorite Flag Banner die from Lala land to top off the card.  Its a perfect card for anybody you admire don't you think?
