Hey a Stampers!
I’m right in the middle of a move, so all my crafty stuff is still on the truck on tie way to Montreal from Vancouver. While I am waiting for all my goodies to arrive, I had a chance to use my new catalog stamps from the just revealed Stampin Up catalog. My good friend Emily graciously shared her craft room with me so that I could get back to what I love: paper crafting 💕
For this card, I used the Over The Rainbow stamp set with Sprinkles of Life for the clouds.
Here is what I made:

This has been a great summer so far – not too hot and lots of sunny days. When Lawn Fawn revealed the Here’s The Scoop coordinating dies I just had to break out my stamp set!
I used the chocolate chip stamp from Milk & Cookies set for the chips in each of the top scoops – I just loved how it turned out too! I tried a few other methods to get sprinkles & this was the best & the easiest 😉

In the summer, going to the park, or outside anywhere in general to blow bubbles is my favorite thing to do. So when I saw this super cute Ella & Friends stamp set from Mama Elephant I knew I had to have it!
I created this card specifically for a good friend of mine who was going through a difficult time – and I included a coffee card inside as a little treat for her.
Here is my card:

To create the grass & sky scene, I first created masks for all of the images, including the bubbles! It was easy to do with plain post-it notes. I just stamped the images and cut them out and placed the post-it over top of the colored images. I used the foam blending tool to blend shabby shutters & mowed lawn for the grass, and broken china with tumbled glass for the sky. To make the clouds, I used a die cut of the balloons from the Up & Away creative cuts as a mask while I was blending in the two blue inks.
Ella was colored with Spectrum Noir markets IG1, IG2 & IG3. Her little bunny helper was colored with BG2. The bubbles turned out really well using TB1, TB2 & TB3 and topped off with a white gel pen to make the shiney pop out.
