GSF Blog Hop – Kids Cards

Hello friends!

I’m sorry I’ve been a little MIA recently – I have good reason with some exciting things coming down the pipe! Until I can release any more info, I am back to regular posting. And what a better way to be back than with a Blog Hop with my friends over at the Global Stamping Friends?!

gsf-blog-hop
Today’s hop is all about Kids Cards! Sometimes I struggle with kids cards even though the perception is that they’re easy to make. To be honest, I find them the most challenging! Kids likes and dislikes are constantly changing, so sometimes it’s hard to keep up!

Having said that, I think I’ve come up with a couple of kids cards that will impress even the toughest of our little critics!

Enter: the Magical Mermaid Stamp Set!

Mermaid Card

Isn’t this just gorgeous? I used Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, and Dapper Demin ink to create the beautiful watercolour background, and then used the Watercolour Pencils to colour in the mermaid. Unfortunately, there are no dies or framelits with this set, but it’s nothing a little fussy cutting can’t solve!

Oh, and just in case you’re wondering about the watermark on the photo, Sweet Paper Studios is my other small business. You can learn more and check out my page by clicking HERE.

My next card involves a little punch art! I don’t do very much punch art, but when I do, I can’t help but go all-out!

Leo Lion Card - Stamping Girl

This sweet little lion was created using the Fox Builder Punch, along with a 2″ scallop punch for his mane. You can find the leaves in the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.

Leo Lion 2 - Stampin' Girl

I just love how both of these cards turned out and I know that the recipients loved them too!

What about you, do you find kids’ cards hard to design?

GSF Blog Hop – My Favourite Bundle

Hi there! Welcome to another round of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! Thanks for following along.

gsf-blog-hop

The theme this month is My Favourite Bundle. Honestly though, how can I pick just one?! There are so many I love, but I guess if I had to pick the one I am using the most right now, it would be the Oh So Succulent Bundle.

I just love how versatile this set is! You can really do so much with it, including having the ability to make a beautiful succulent garden (like the one below!). Details on this project are coming soon, so stay tuned! But here are a few things I’ve created with this bundle.

GSF Blog Hop – Sketch Challenge

Hi Stampers! Welcome to my very first Blog Hop with the Global Stamping Friends!

gsf-blog-hop
I am so excited to participate in my first blog hop – so let’s hope I actually do this right 🙂 I am actually pretty honoured to participate in the hop alongside so many talented artists! I can’t wait to see what they come up.

Now, let’s get to it. This month’s hop is a sketch challenge based on the following sketch. We have to option to follow it to a ‘T’ or really have some fun and play around with it. I chose a bit of both!

gsf-march-hop

There are really so many places you can take a sketch like this, but for this challenge, I chose to keep it simple. Sometimes I think simple cards are the best cards; think of  understated beauty. And that’s exactly what I think this is.

For this card I used a scrap piece of paper from last year’s Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack. I alway keep my scraps. Always. That way when I need to make a quick card, I have some paper readily available. Beside, why waste good paper? 🙂

I also used the Avant Garden stamp set that is part of the current Sale-A-Bration promotion. I absolutely love this set. It’s so versatile and can really be used with any sentiment you may have on hand. The best part is, is that you can get this set for FREE! Click HERE to learn more.

The colours used for this card include Watermelon Wonder, a hint of Cherry Cobbler using the Stampin’ Write Marker, Cucumber Crush, and Basic Black for the sentiment.  Of course, I also added some rhinestones as well, for a nice added touch!

Pretty and simple.

And thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my card. Now it’s time to hop on over to the next person…Kimberley has something amazing waiting for you as well!
