Stamping Bella Leo The Balancing Stuffie

Hello, Happy Crafters! It's Colleen today to tell you we have a brand new challenge posted at 7 Kids College Fund blog and it is 'anything goes' You have the opportunity to win a $20.00 gift certificate to store if you use 7 Kids College Store products.

If you haven't noticed by now - I LOVE Stamping Bella images and the cute sentiments that come with them. Everything is complete except the designing! This is Leo the balancing stuffie - and it's all about life - either hold on or let go!

I stamped my image on Neenah Solar White Paper with Tuxedo Black memento ink which is safe to use with your Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment with Versa Fine Ink which is the only Ink I stamp sentiments with because of the crisp sharpness it produces.

Bride and Groom

Happy Wedding Season!   Tammy Louise on the 7kids College Fund store blog today!   I'm coloring a whimsical little stamp illustrated by Crissy Armstrong in the Whimsy section of the 7kids College Fund store.  

I've fallen hard for the elegant and delightful card look of velum with silver Stazon ink.  The paper on the lower edge of the card gives it plenty of stability.  I cut three on an angle to go inside and outside of the front and back of the card.  The image was cut on an angle to give it some dimension and some sequins were added for the glitter effect.  Perfect for a summer wedding gift card!

Hope you Day is Purr-fect!

   Tammy Louise with you here today on the 7kidscollegefund store blog with Kitty Balloon from the amazing artist at Whimsy Stamps, Crissy Armstrong!  She does such cute illustrations of animals!!  

The Kitty is Copic colored and fussy cut out to be added to this small stock square card with half Gilded Doily cuts from each side of the card!  I figured the Brown ribbon would perfectly offset the kitty's color too!

My card features this stunning girl from LDRS Creative called A GIRL CAN'T HAVE TOO MANY. This set comes with extra accessories, but I just used the girl. She's stamped on some new paper I'm trying out thanks to my friend Colleen! She sent me a sample of this Cryogen White Cardstock and I LOVE it!!

The decorative paper, including the awesome sentiment is from Doodlebug Design SPRING GARDEN 6x6 Paper Pad. I didn't want to add to much to this since I wanted the focus to be on the sentiment. I think I'm going to frame this for my craft room.

Shakin it up Avery Elle Style!

Hey there friends!!!  It's me Kelli with today's store inspiration card!!!

I created a FUN little shaker card using the UBER awesome new goodies called NUVO!!!!!

What are Nuvo you ask?  Well, they are liquid drops that are domed like an enamel dot, you make your own any size or color that you want!!!!  YES!!!  Liquid Pearls are just that pearls and require a flick under neath to get rid of the Dairy Queen ice cream top and Viva Decor pens stay round like a pearl.  NUVO self level but stay a bit domed and dry REALLY fast!!!  Just blop some out on a craft mat and walk away.  That is exactly what I did and then came back when I thought HEY!  I'm going to make a shaker card!!!!!

SO, I grabbed my Avery Elle Margarita Shaker die and some fun papers.  I dropped my NUVO crystal drops  into the center and sealed it up!  BOOM!  CUTE SHAKER

Avery Elle Crazy die and some glitter for the salted rim and this card is DONE!!!!  <3


Thanks for popping in and hope to see you all playing with the Nuvo drops SOON!!!!  

PS The bottles have a BEAUTIFUL "Diamond" on top.... eye candy for the shelf while waiting to use them again! ;)

Many Happy Thoughts

Happy Staruday everyone! Here's my project for the current 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.  

The stamp set I used is Mama Elephant - Carried Away. There are character images in this set but I used the Balloon image. They are colored with Copic Markers. I made the middle balloon into a shaker. I just fussy cut the inside with scissors, really simple. Filled it with yummy sequins. I used scraps of pattern paper for the base and backing of the balloon. I used one of the sentiments in the stamp set. I doodled the balloon strings. Lastly, I added pink enamel dots to the bottom left corner.

ESTHER THE WONDER PIG book giveaway!

I have an extra copy of this amazing book just sitting around and I was thinking: how can I get it to someone who will enjoy it? And, not only get it to someone to read, but help out Esther and the animals in the process? Of course, 7 KIDS' customers came immediately to mind. So, I am going to send the book to one lucky customer AND donate 10% off all sales to Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary.

If you don't know who Esther is, you must visit her facebook page!

To see what is going on at the sanctuary, visit its facebook page!

Here is how the promo will work. Between now and June 19:

If you place an order for $50 or more and enter the code ESTHER you will be eligible to win the book. AND, 10% of your merchandise total will be donated to HEEFS!

If your order is for less than $50 and you enter the code ESTHER, 10% off your merchandise total will be donated to HEEFS!

$50 or more and you could win and the animals definitely win! Any amount under that and the animals still win!

It's a win-win!

Good through 6/19

This is a picture of my pig KIRBY! Here he is in the laundry basket. Fortunately for me, Kirby really is a mini pig, unlike Esther.

Welcome Little One

Hello crafty friends!  It's me Tammy Louise coloring a Whimsy image from the 7 kids college fund store.  I've also used loads of the dies available in the LDRS Creative section as well.  His name is "From Prince" and he was simply a must have!  He turned out perfect for another baby card for my consignment shop! 

The Store is currently shipping Next Day and shipping is free with a more than $75.00 purchase,(some restrictions apply)!!  So get over there and do a bit of shopping and you could be coloring this little darling VERY soon!
