Stampendous Cat's Pajamas

I love when Joann's runs a free shipping promo.  They have a lot of online only product so there's a much bigger selection to shop.  Pair it up with a 30 or 40 percent discount and you get a great deal.  There are so many great stamping companies online that don't have physical store fronts that I would like to purchase from but I just can't justify spending 7-8 dollars for shipping for a 15-20 dollar stamp set or a really awesome die so I just have to skip them. 

So this stamp is by Stampendous entitled Cat's Pajamas.  This is what happens when you don't have a plan.  I started coloring the cake slices first.  As I evolve as a stamper I try not to have to much white in the background so I was looking for a way to fill it. The image itself is pretty big. So I decided to bring out the color of  the cake and extend it to the background.  I really like the stamp but would not make the same card again.  Till next time have a great day.

Hello Foxy. Imaginisce Twitterpated Dollar Stamp.

I can spend all day in my craft room.  My son could spend all day on his playstation and laptop.
Sometimes I miss him even though we are in the same house.  So occasionally I will break out a folding table and set up a temp craft station in the living room so I can still hang out with my kid.

Today I'm sharing a foxy hello.  It started by me playing with a new "hello" die.  I really love that it has an outline.  The stamp is so adorable and this was my first time stamping it even though it's been in the stash for a couple of years.  The Woodgrain piece started as white cardstock.  I blended some browns onto the cardstock and then stamped the woodgrain image.  Foxy is colored with copics.  I totally forgot I embossed the image first but luckily it was black pigment ink and clear embossing powder.  Normally a copic marker would disintegrate the embossing powder and it would smear it all over the paper.  I don't know if the clear doesn't have same effect or if I can't tell because its clear.  So there we have it a quick cute card.  Have a great day.

Stampin Bella's Flynn's Berry Happy Day

 Hello fellow stampers.  This is a quick post.  I love this stamp by Stampin Bella.   I was rummaging through my pattern paper for a different project when I thought this paper would be perfect to pair with  this really cute stamp.  Well I said it would be quick. Thanks for stopping and have a great day.
