Little Danni with Flutterby

Hello friends! Today I have another card that I made with one of the newly released Victoria Case stamps from SCACD. The new spring collection is just incredible. I have been loving all of these cute little ladies! Today I used the new stamp "Little Danni and Flutterby". I think she is just so sweet! I stamped my image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic markers. I also added some Doodlebug Designs sugar coating glitter to her shoes, the cherry and the butterfly. For a little more sparkle I added my favorite embellishment, Dress It Up glitter dots!

I hope you are all having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

TIOT #59 : Inspiration Challenge!

This is my 2nd post for today. Please scroll down to see my Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge card!

Welcome to this week's SCACD Try It Out Tuesday challenge! This week's challenge is an inspiration challenge. We were challenged to find inspiration from one of our favorite movies!
This was a tough challenge for me since I have so many favorite movies. I decided to limit my pick to movies that I've watched in the past couple months. Since I happen to be someone who loves food and I happen to be a blogger, the movie "Julie & Julia" seemed like the perfect pick as my inspiration.
The newly released Victoria Case image "Little Marti" fit my inspiration piece perfectly (ok, so I might have picked the movie for this reason, but I truly did like the movie!). "Little Marti" is just the cutest little chef I have ever seen! You can purchase the new Victoria Case images individually or you can buy the entire Spring collection at an incredible discount! My main image is stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. The sentiment I used comes from Pink Cat Studio. Susana carries several Pink Cat sets! I couldn't resist using some Basic Grey Nook and Pantry designer paper as well as my new favorite embellishment, American Crafts glitter buttons!

I used this week's Friday Sketchers sketch challenge as my layout inspiration.

Be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the incredibly talented SCACD design team members for more inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday! Be sure to check back tomorrow for another fun Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge.

Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge!

Welcome to another fun Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge! This week our challenge for you is to Show us your NEW STUFF!!! Use your favorite new products! We'd love for you to play along with us! If you do be sure to leave a link to your project in the comment section of the challenge post on the JB blog and/or use keyword JBE097 when up loading to PCP or SCS.

For my card I used the new Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety 6x6 paper pad along with the coordinating Garden Variety buttons. These new Cosmo 6x6 pads are filled with gorgeous coordinating patterns. I am addicted to 6x6 paper pads. They store so nicely and the price is definitely a plus! I also used one of my favorite Stampavie images. It isn't new, but the Jacksonbelle store does have the new Sarah Kay stamps in stock! I bought a couple of them and you will be seeing those on my cards in the upcoming weeks!

For more sketchy inspiration, be sure to check out the blogs of all of the Jacksonbelle Rockstars!

Little Paper Shop March Preview Blog Hop!

It's day 2 of the Little Paper Shop March releases! To celebrate this month's release the design team is having a blog hop! If you arrived here via Cindy's blog you are on the right path. If not, be sure to start back at the LPS blog to make sure you see all of the gorgeous preview cards! Make sure to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win today's preview set!

Both of the March release sets will be available to purchase in the LPS store tomorrow. Since it is Monday, we also have a challenge for you! The challenge this week was given to use by design team member Cindy. Cindy's challenge is for us is to "make something new again". Do you have a drawer full of things that you just had to have and you've never used...eyelets, ribbon, buttons, etc. Dig through those bins and use those neglected items! We would love for you to play along. Remember, if you do, be sure to leave a link to your project on the LPS challenge blog post for a chance to win!

Today's preview set is called {Everyday}. I LOVE this set!!! I think I say that every time a new set is released but I truly LOVE this one. I love sentiment stamps and this set is full of gorgeous sentiments! My "old" item comes in the form of some Prima lace ribbon. I have had this ribbon forever but just never quite had the right project to use it on.

Can you tell I'm addicted to the easel card, LOL. I just love these fun little cards! I can't get enough of them!

Thanks for stopping by today! The next stop in the hop is the blog of the incredibly talented Ann.

Where do your Belles 'n Whistles stamps live?

The Belles 'n Whistles blog has a fun contest going on right now. Check out their blog for all of the details.

So to answer the Belles 'n Whistles stamps live in a zoo! Ok, so maybe not a real zoo but our house sure seems like a zoo to me! We've got dogs, a caterpillar, a pig, a bunny, bears, fish, turtles, a killer whale and even a 2 headed snake...oh and did I mention 2 kids. That is the definition of a zoo if I ever heard one!

Be sure to check out the Belles 'n Whistles blog for all the exciting new release sneak peaks!
