Good Morning friends!  How goes it today?  I am stopping by with a QUICK creation for you!!  Quick AND simple!  What is NOT to like about that?  My SIMPLE creation though?  It’s a sneaky SNEAK!!  So......DOUBLE fun!!  Now, the stamp set I used WILL be available at OH SCRAP! on February 1st!  Know what else?? Iva is having a SALE!! Yay!! Go and get your stamp on!!! Woohoo!!  I hope you like my creation, as much as I liked making it!  Have an AWESOME day, thanks for stopping by, and I will see you tomorrow for ANOTHER peek!!!

Alley Way Simple Pleasures, Georgia Pacific Cardstock, Memento Tuxedo Ink, Copics, MME Patterned Paper, MFT Cloud Die, Action Wobbler.

I took a nice, crisp white piece of GP card stock and cut it down to A2 card size.  I then folded it and added my cute little pinwheel & sentiment, from the AW Simple Pleasures set, in memento Tuxedo.  After that I took my YR04 and YR68 Copic; added a little color and picked out my DSP for my clouds.  I used my Big Kick and cloud dies to cut out that DSP; I then ran my 110 Copic along the edges of the clouds, to add some depth.  I attached the small cloud with a glue dot or two and the large cloud I attached with an action wobbler!  Voila!  This clean and simple thing is growing on me!  Especially with this particular set!  SO many possibilities!

AW Sittin’ Pretty, AW Jibber Jabber, Memento Tuxedo Ink, Copics, Three Bugs in a Rug “Frisky” DSP,Charcoal Card Stock, Georgia Pacific White Card Stock,Grey & white Bakers Twine, Action Wobblers, Petite Ovals & Petite Scallop Ovals Spellbinders.

First, as always, I used my DSP to choose my Copics.  Then I chose my Charcoal cardstock, for my base, followed by stamping my kitty onto the Georgia Pacific White card stock and coloring it in with my copics.  After that was done, I cut down my DSP and layered it on my charcoal base.  Once that was ready, I used my spellbinders to cut out my image and the charcoal layering piece.  I put everything,  together with my ATG gun, leaving the main focal image for last!  I tied some twine around it all,stamped my sentiment and little mouse, then attached my kitty with an action wobbler!!  I LOVE kitty's, can you tell?!!  You need to head over to the OH SCRAP! store and get some super cute stamps, along with action wobblers ( of course) for your very own!!

Good morning friends!!  How are you?  I hope you all had wonderful holidays!!  SO excited you stopped by!  I actually have a creation to share with you!  Can you believe it??  Yes, yes......I was at the old craft table!!  Thanks to the AWESOME Iva Youngs at OH SCRAP!!  I got to PLAY with some NEW Paper Smooches stamps!!  The set I used today is called NINE LIVES!!

PS Nine Lives, Kraft Cardstock, October Afternoon DSP, Spellbinders Labels 2 Die,Brown Jute Twine, TH Distress Ink Walnut Stain & Peeled Paint,Believe Charm.

I used my paper cutter and Big Kick to cut out my DSP, so I could layer it.  The top DSP piece was done with my Spellbinders Label 2 Die.  I adhered the bottom layer with my ATG gun.  And.....after I brushed the edges of the top layer DSP, with walnut stain, I popped it up with some pop dots on top of the first layer!  I then stamped the super cute kitty in walnut stain as well, onto my kraft cardstock, and stamped the sentiment with the peeled paint.  I added some walnut stained paws and then used brown jute twine, along with a little "believe "charm to complete my creation.  Hope you like it as much as I do!!
