Thinking of You

Hello everyone! This is the last weekend of June, where did this month go?? Jo here, sharing my card using Emma from Saturated Canary. I just love her curly hair. She is colored with Copics (Colors listed at my blog). I used Lawn Fawn stamps & coordinating dies, Chit Chat, for the sentiment.

The color combo (red/grey/turqouise) is from the paper We Are Family by Echo Park. I added the color purple for fun and I think it works together. I added a satin ribbon and some butterflies for embellishments. Lastly for a bit of shimmer, I used the Wink of Stella Clear pen all around the image for a sparkly halo.

Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget there is still time to submit your project to our current Challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog.

See you there!

Bees with Cupcake by Wild Rose Studio

Hello my stamping friends!!!! It is Tuesday and you know what that means!!!

Is this not the cutest stamp??? 

It is called Bees with Cupcake (WildRose Studio). I think these little bees are adorable!!!

I "sprinkled" the top of the cupcake icing with different colors of Pearl Pens (Viva). And the candle was colored with Bundled Sage (Ranger). I can't wait to give this cute birthday card to someone special!!!

DoCrafts Simply Gorjuss Ladybird

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you've been having a great week so far. Don't forget about our latest "ANYTHING GOES" Challenge going on right now at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog. 

Today, it's Rosie here to share the details on the card I made for the current challenge. I used this gorgeous stamp from DoCrafts called Simply Gorjuss Ladybird. I love this entire line of stamps!! The Gorjuss Girl line is seriously one of my top faves!! She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto X-Press It Blending Card, and colored with Copics. I then colored over her clothes with the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker. It's hard to tell in the photos, but her dress and tights are sparkly.

Hair: E44, E47, E49
Red: R24, R27, R29, R59
Blue: BG10, BG18, BG53, BG57

Wink of Stella Clear

My cute dps are from Echo Park We Are Family 6x6 Paper Pad. I cut my image out using the Spellbinders Floral Ovals Nestabilities Die. I heat-embossed some Stampendous Aged Marine Embossing Enamel around my image. Then I added glue around the oval edge and dipped the edge in Stampendous Oceanic Crushed Glass Glitter. My sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio Birthday Circles Stamps Set, and it's backed by a Wild Rose Studio Flower Circle Die. I handmade the gorgeous, red flower from Sizzix Dahlia Flower Thinlets Die.

Remember to be eligible for the gift certificate and the Top 3, you must use a stamp carried in the 7 Kids College Fund Store.

Have a great week!

I Love You

Happy Saturday! Jo here sharing my project for the new challenge that is up over at the 7Kids Challenge Blog.

It's "Anything Goes" and here is my card:

"SENIOR-ita" Wanda from Stamping Bella is the image I used. She is soo full of character, I love her! She is colored with Copics. I gave her really puffy cheeks and added some blush with a pink chalk. I pictured her having lilac colored hair or that lavendar silver that some women ROCK! Her outfit and hearts are accented with Christmas Red Stickles. For her juicy red lips, I added Glossy Accents.

I pulled the sentiment and hearts w/coordinating die from Lawn Fawn - Say CheeseLet's Roll and Let's Roll Die Cuts. I knew I had a heart somewhere with a matching die!

Lastly, she HAD to be on an Action Wobble!

I have her resting on a table with a doily. She looks like she's reaching across and blowing a kiss. I hope she gave you a smile =)

Come join us!
GOOD LUCK and Happy Weekend!!!

Stamping Bella: Sunny is Stylish!

Hello, everyone! It's Karen here with my card for the new challenge that begins today at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! The theme is Anything Goes, so link up whatever craftiness you're working on! Just be sure to use products carried by 7 Kids (primarily the stamped image) to be eligible to win a generous gift certificate to the store. :o)

This week I made an encouragement card with a stylish stamp from Stamping Bella: Uptown Girl Sunny is Stylish!
What a fantastic image to encourage someone to believe in their dreams! She is colored with Copics, except for her suitcase which I paper-pieced for a fun pattern. (I just started practicing with folds and pleats... I am a work in progress!) The panel is trimmed with one of the beautiful border dies from the Tattered Lace Beloved Borders set.

For fashionable French flair, I used my new La-La Land Crafts Eiffel Tower die! Isn't it a beauty? I couldn't resist adding an elegant flourish of flowers and pearls. The corner accent is the lovely La-La Land Crafts Filigree Corner die.

I hope you'll join in the fun and play along with us! We love visiting you! Have a blessed day, everyone! :o)

Float My Boat by Lawn Fawn

Hello everyone!!!
Hope you have been having a fabulous week!
I wanted to share a card I made featuring the fun stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn called Float My Boat Both are available at the 7Kids store.

The papers from CartaBella-Beach Boardwalk 6X6 paper pad were perfect for my card. If you look closely, you can see how I took a craft knife and cut out areas in the wavy paper to place the little sailboats in. Don't they look like they are floating in the ocean?  I stamped the sailboats with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them with Black embossing powder. I stamped them again on different scraps of designer paper. I fussy cut the sails and paper pieced them onto the embossed sailboats. I think they are so cute!

I hope you will join us with our current  Anything Goes Challenge!

All items used on my card are available at the 7Kids Store and are linked below!

Ink: Versamark
Embossing Powder: Black Super Fine (Ranger)

Party Paws Love from Bamboo

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! It's Rosie here to share my latest card for you using Crafter's Companion Party Paws LOVE FROM BAMBOO. Isn't he the cutest bear ever?!! I love all of the these Party Paws Bears!!

Bear: C3, C5, C7, Black, N0, N2, Colorless Blender
Heart: R81, R83, R85, R89

I used some gorgeous dps from Carta Bella Summer Lovin' 6x6 Paper Pad. The "love you" on top of the heart is a sticker from Authentique Smitten 6x6 Paper Pad. The doily is from Bo Bunny. The beautiful burlap flowers are from Petaloo. The white pearls are from Melissa Frances.

Guess what else I used on my card? It's a new addiction of mine, and it's called an Action Wobble. You cut out an extra part of your image, add the action wobble to the back and place it on your card. I stamped Bamboo twice, cut out the heart, and then placed an action wobble behind it. When you flick it with your finger the heart shakes!! I have to thank my teamie JO for all her action wobble inspiration! Now I've got to figure out what else I want to make wobble, haha!!

There are still a couple more days left to enter our current "Anything Goes" challenge HERE

Have a great week!
Rosie :)

Good Morning Saturday! Let's get your crafty weekend started with a card from me, Jo. All of the products shown can be found at the 7 Kids College Fund Store

I had in mind to create a sushi table scene when creating this card. I used three stamp sets and two coordinating die sets, all from Lawn Fawn. Pretty much everything is adhered with dimensional pop dots.
I added a few sparkles with Stickles - Fruit Punch & Star Dust.

For me, sometimes visuals are the best, so I made a two part video that you can watch me Start-to-Finish over at my YouTube Channel: 

There's still time to join our current challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog. 

Have a beautiful and crafty weekend!
