It's Friday!!!

TGIF! I've had a really tough week and needed something that would make me smile today. I don't know about you, but rainbows always make me smile. Every time I see a rainbow I think of my daugher... she loves to color everything she can in rainbow colors. For this card I used the digital Dorothy Anya from The Greeting Farm. I don't know the manufacturer of the sentiment, I bought it a few years ago at a local stamping expo.Supplies used: Digi Dorothy from The Greeting Farm, SU CS, Prismacolor markers, foam dimensionals, glitter.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Imagine That!

Today I thought I would share a card that I made using one of my favorite Shimmerz techniques. Besides painting Primas with Shimmerz, my next favorite thing to do with it is make shimmery background paper. To make my background I stamped my image on light blue cardstock and then painted the whole thing with Angel Wings Shimmerz. Immediately after painting the cardstock (while the Shimmerz is still wet) I use a paper towel and rub over the entire piece in a circular motion. For this particular card I also rubbed some darker blue ink over the shimmerz to give a cloudy look. This technique lets you create shimmery background paper using any color of cardstock. I'm sure any color of Shimmerz would work but I find Angel Wings looks great on any color of cardstock.

Supplies used: Shimmerz Angel Wings (background), Shimmerz Green Olive (on the dragon), Stamps from Firecracker Designs by Pamela, SU CS, foam dimensionals, Dress It Up Glitter Dots.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Blog Hoppin PMS style!

It is finally time for the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Hop! I was recently introduced to Paper Makeup Stamps and I was hooked immediately. I seriously love everything they carry (I've ordered 3x in the last month and I am happy to say I am a satisfied customer!). Paper Makeup has a fantastic variety of quotes/sentiments, whimsical animals, adorable monsters and enchanting fairies stamps. I love them all!
For my card today I used the Smitten Snake set. This set comes with this adorable snake plus 2 corresponding sentiments and still only costs $7.00 (on cling cushion) or $5.50 (bare rubber). What a great deal! Isn't he just so cute!

Supplies used: Stamps from Paper Makeup Stamps, SU CS, Basic Grey DP, Nestibilities, Shimmerz Green Olive, Prismacolor markers, foam dimensionals, SU scalloped edge punch, self adhesive gem stones, sponge.
