{4.29.2013} anything goes today…


It is a fun day with the SPARKS challenge from Paper Smooches.

Anything Goes PSS

 week 5

This is a great week to JUST PLAY!!!  The Party Posse is a new stamp set for me, though it is “vintage” Paper Smooches.  I just adore that little hamster.  Who knew a hamster could be so cute???  He is colored with some Copics and then popped up on the card.  I cut the balloon out with my Cameo and then did a little surgery on the hamster to be able to thread the balloon string out his little hand.  So adorable.

Check out the other girls sharing their SPARKS cards this week.

The design team has a bunch of amazing samples on the UNITY BLOG today.

{4.25.2013} Unity Thursday + Cameo file FREEBIE

Whoop Whoop!

I just LOVE when I get to hop on Thursday’s with Unity.
It is my favorite day for sure.
All the action starts on the Unity blog.

I am using the current KIT OF THE MONTH today.

Eeek, fun right?  The stamps are some I designed as well.  I loved the idea of geocaching for a card theme.  Lots of friends I know have husbands or kids that like to go on these little adventures.  It is quite a trendy theme right now as well.  The Here and There paper pad had the PERFECT matching paper.

I have a little freebie for you as well.
I created that card base for the Cameo and I’m going to share it with you.
It is available in both .studio and svg files.
Just click on the picture and download the file you need.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog today.
We’ll be giving away 3 prizes from comments left on the participating blogs.

That is all from me, head on over to the amazing Renee next!!!!

Here are the list of blogs hopping today.

{4.23.2013} de-LIGHT-ful

Hello Tuesday.

I shared this card on the Unity blog yesterday.

These are some of my stamp designs.  I love a good pun, thus we have a bit of a punny stamp.  The other sentiment that goes with the light bulb is OH GOSH i just remembered.  Ha.  I’ve used that one too.

I ordered some Neenah paper in a linen texture.  I LOVE it.  The Deco Hound has a fun worn look when stamped on the texture.  It also has a very clean and classic feel that will be good for pretty clean and simple cards.  I’m excited about it can you tell?  Lol.  The circles were cut with my Cameo from various scraps of cardstock.

Thursday is my hop day with Unity.
I have a special card planned and will have a freebie to go with it.
I *might* have a free Cameo file involved.
Just saying.

Have a fabulous day my friends.



{4.22.2013} Monday SPARKS with Paper Smooches

Hey Sugah.

Here is the NEW SPARKS challenge
from Paper Smooches.

week 4

Doesn’t this photo make you crave a cupcake?
I sure did and almost ran out to get one.  I refrained… barely.

Instead, I stamped them!
The front of the card is trimmed short to show off the patterned paper from the inside.
Then the cupcakes hang over the bottom a little.
Kinda a little fun twist.

There is MORE inspiration over on the SPARKS blog and with these talented ladies.
