You are one in a Minion

Hi Everybody,

I am playing with my new release stamps from So Suzy Stamps and if you saw my release post, then you know that I love minions. Here is another one of those funny little creatures. His name is Kevin

The matching sentiment you can find HERE.

There was some masking involved....
I cut out a few post it notes - you can cut them all together, less work.

Stamped and masked until the card was full of minions.

Took a rectangular die and cut it to size. Colored with Prismacolor pencils.

Matted it onto black card stock and added the heat embossed sentiment.

You may know this already, but just in case you don't.... We have a new feature here at So Suzy's. 
Every month one of our DT members has a birthday you get on stamp with every order free.
This is Terri's birthday month and THIS is her stamp:

Pinsights Challenge

Hi Everyone,

just a very quick post. It's late already and I don't want to miss the deadline for the current Pinsights challenge over at Ellen Hutson.

Made this water color background and added the die cuts and the sentiment, which are all by Ellen Hutson. Added a green thread.

This is the inspiration picture:

Muse Christmas Visions #92

Hi Everyone,

I am back with a card for Muse Christmas Visions.

Our current muse is Chriss Blagrave from Botanical Cafe.

She made a delightful, almost one layer card. I could not resist taking the same stamp set - it's from Flora and Fauna to CASE her card, which you can see below:

You see I took all the elements from her card, but grouped them around one wreath - this one is from MFT. Could have stamped a wreath, but was too lazy. I colored the birds with Inktense pencils and fussy cut them.

Any regrets about starting too late last year with your Christmas card production? If so MCV is for you! Make a card every week and you'll be all set!
See you at MCV!

Happy Stamping!

Upcycling some Commercial Cards

Hi Everyone,

I upcycled some commercial cards. I always get a lot of cards from organizations I make donations to and I usually don't throw them out, but use them for various things - mostly to try out a card idea, use them as shims, or whatever. But this time I thought I re-purpose them into handmade cards.

My stamp supplies:

Stampotique January Challenge

Hi Everyone,

we at Stampotique are in the second week of our January challenge - the theme is "Spots and Dots". 

I used the Waving Spotted Monster and colored it with water brush pens. Fussy cut him. The background I made with an iStencil and glossy embossing paste. 

 After it dried, I sponged lime green ink over the center dots. The sentiment is from Hashtags. I added the balloon.

Stampotique Challenges run every TWO weeks......
Please remember you can use any stamps for our challenge and you are allowed to have 2 entries per challenge. From all the current months entries we will draw 2 random winners who will each win a 30.00 gift certificate on the first week of the following month.

Have fun with 
Hope to see you at the challenge!
