Congrats on your new home.

{click photo to enlarge}

Hello! I hope your 4th weekend is off to a fabulous start! :) You could make it fabulous-er by picking up some NEW Peachy faces for yourself! HA! I used the brand new Black Eyed Peaches Face Assortment on my adorable fishies. The fishies and sandcastle are from a super cute Beach Babies Digi Stamp Set that will be coming very soon, and I'll come back and link when it's available! I colored the fish, sandcastle, and sand with Copics {I'll list colors below}. I made the water with broken china, cracked pistachio, salty ocean, and peacock feathers distress inks. I added blobs of glossy accents here and there to make "bubbles". I also added glossy accents to the flag poles, and I added wink of stella here and there as well. Forgot to say that the greeting is also in the Beach Babies Digi Set that is coming very soon. :)

You can check out all the NEW face stamps HERE. There are also some pretty cool bundles available...but most awesomely...they're on SALE! :)

MCT Designer Challenge



Hello! It's challenge time again at MyCreativeTime! This time we have the above photo/sketch to use as jumping off points. The inspiration photo sent me in a patriotic/nautical direction, and I loosely based my card on the sketch. Here's my take...


I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies to make the wavy panel. I used the 4x4 Journal And More Die to make the shaker. The greeting is from the Hey Sailor set. The anchor is from the Anchors And Heart Die set. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more creations and to play along in the challenge.

Have a flippin' amazing summer!


Hello! I hope you're having a flippin' awesome day! :) I had fun coloring this sweet Lulee's Swim Time stamp from PeachyKeenStamps. Isn't she adorable?! And guess what?! She is only $3.50!!! I colored her with Copics {I'll list colors below}. I made a beach for her using distress inks and water. I used antique linen for the sand, peacock feathers for the ocean, and tumbled glass for the sky. For a finishing touch on the Lulee's Swim Time girl, I added wink of stella and glossy accents to her swimmies. The greeting is from the Sit Back And Relax set by MyCreativeTime. It's just perfect because she has "flippers" on. :) I also used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies by MyCreativeTime

Celebrate you!


Hello! It's Die Of The Month day at MyCreativeTime. This month it's the Stitched Capture Frame die. I've used it on this card to make a shaker. I did some masking to add the hat from the Tweet Me set to the sweet giraffe from the new Hello Baby set. I colored the party giraffe with my Copics. I stamped and cut out the "celebrate" banner from the Chalkboard Birthday set. I shaded it with Copics. I used the 3 Stitched Star Dies and stamped "you" from the Tweet Me set on the little one. I also used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies for the pink layer. I used the Stitched Grass Die for the grass on the shaker. The papers are from the Sugar Chic and Dreamy collections by Heidi Swapp.

Seas the day


Hello! I love getting more out of my stamps, don't you???!!! For this adorable sea turtle, I used the Dragon Family Face Assortment by PeachyKeenStamps. Yep, dragon faces! I think it makes for a pretty darn cute sea turtle! :) I used this Sea Turtle SVG from MissKateCuttables and my Cricut Explore to cut it out. I cut it from white cardstock, and used my Copics to color it. I used broken china, peacock feathers, and salty ocean distress inks to make the background. The greeting is from the Hey Sailor set by MyCreativeTime. To finish this off, I added blobs of glossy accents...they
 look like bubbles. :) OH and she is on a WOBBLE so she swims! :)

Hiya! It's day 4 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking a new set called Hello Baby, and the "freebie" for this release...the Baby Word Die. I used the Baby Word Die to cut fun foam to make my own stamp. I used it to stamp the background. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies to cut the panels. I used the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies and the new Bunch Of Stitched Doily Dies. I stamped the cute little elephant from the Hello Baby set, and colored him with my Copics. I added little dots to the blue parts of his ears with a white gel pen. I stamped the greeting from the new Hello Baby set on the banner from the Vintage Labels Dies.
