Stuffed Friends

Happy Sunday everyone!!  Rachel here with you today, and I wanted to share some details of my card that I made for the current challenge!

I used an adorable image from the Stamping Bella, Cute Critters line- The Stuffie Gang!

Supplies used-
Stamping Bella- Cute Critters- The Stuffie Gang

I first colored up the image, and then added a little bit of color to create an outdoor background.  I then cut out some squares and rectangles, and matted everything with some cardstock.  The sentiment comes with the image, so I turned it into a banner and placed it across the top of the image.  I had a few extra die cut balloons sitting around, tied some twine around them, and attached them to the left.  The final touch was a few sequins for some bling!!  Easy peasy!!

I hope this gives you a little crafty inspiration to finish off the weekend!!

Thanks for stopping by!

La-La Land Crafts - Paper Doll Marci Birthday

Hello Weekend! Here's my project for the 7 Kids Challenge Blog, "Anything Goes".  Make sure you use a STAMP/IMAGE carried in the 7 Kids College Fund Store in order to qualify.  

This sweet image is Paper Doll Marci Birthday from La-La Land Crafts. Her skin is colored with Copic Markers and the rest of her is paper pieced. I'm going to a crop next week and needed a birthday card, perfect! The "happy" die cut is from Mama Elephant - Happy Script Creative Cuts die. The "birthday" sentiment is from Mama Elephant - Happy Everything. I added a rhinestone bling for the pom pom. I recently got my hands on this eyelet scalloped trim and had to use it pronto! Love it! For the final detail, I added Christmas Red Stickles to the heart on her face.

Whimsy Stamp - Sylvia Zet - Polly


Hello! It's Colleen and it is my turn to host the store blog. I chose Polly by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps to create my card.  She is cute as a button and so fun to color with Copics! and I finally found a pink combo that I like without using  R81 - R89.

Did you see 7 Kids has MISTI stamping tool on pre orders. It is a stamping tool that allows you to stamp perfectly every single time - including restamping an image. Perfect for placing your sentiments onto your labels. Let me tell ya - I have saved so much money by not wasting paper for I am one lousy stamper and now I stamp one time and it's PERFECT!  Trust me after you watch the video you will want one!! See the video below!
