See You Later

>> Sunday, May 28, 2017

Hi all, I hope your week has went well. Today I have a background stamp new stamp from DRS designs. It's the See You Later, Alligator

I stamp it with Versa Mark and used white embossing powder, then sponged on some of Distress Oxide ink. I cut a circle from the center on another paper I sponged more ink and sprayed it with water. The Frog on a Log I used Copic markers then fussy cut. The Spatter Background was embossed with white embossing powder. I stamped the Toad'ally Wonderful Day embossed with white embossing powder sponged it then cut it apart.

You still have a few day for the The Great Cling Stamp give away.

Have a wonderful day,


See Ya Later...

Good morning!

My husband and I are hikers (well how could we NOT be living in the backyard of Yosemite National Park?) so the first thing I thought of was hiking!

Other DRS stamps include: Broken Flower Fence 109K and Hiker Boot Prints 946D
I stamped and masked the sign and then stamped the Broken Flower Fence.  On a separate piece of card stock I stamped  The boot prints and cut it out with a Square die and layered with a pierced square die.  I ran twine around the image layer and foam taped the boot prints over the twine.

This next card uses the new Take a Hike, The new See Ya Later background square and the Silhouette Hiker 1026G.

I stamped the sentiment square all over the tan card stock with Peanut Brittle ink then stamped the Silhouette Hiker on top of the background.  I tore black/gray strips of card stock  to continue the mountain shape.  The Take a Hike sentiment is stamped with black on tan then matted with black then terracotta card stock.  I cut a frame with the double stitched frame die and popped it up.  Just for fun I added a metal button in the bottom left corner.
Thanks for visiting today!  
Have a great weekend!


Golf Swing

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well & you have wonderful plans for the Memorial Day weekend! Ol' Golfer Duff may have the right idea...unfortunately, the only golf I play is Miniature. I'm super on those windmill holes, lol.  Hubs is a golfer, but hasn't played in while. His clubs are feeling pretty neglected. I think this new greeting is perfect w/ the golf images. After I stamped & colored Duff, I figured out where the greeting looked best to me. Then I cut out a little golf ball & added it on top. 
The bg was stamped w/ the Lines image...I like how it adds just a little sumthin' extra. For another sumthin', I die cut the grid down the left side to let a little more of the rust color show through.

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
paper: Staples 110# white, rust, kraft
ink: Memento tuxedo black, Distress ink rusty hinge
accessories:  Copic markers, Misti, Spellbinders A2 matting basics A & B dies, IO grid die, Misti


See you Later, Alligator

I have a quick and easy retirement card for you today - with a sneak peek at one of our soon to be released stamps!

I started my card by stamping the See You Later, Alligator being released this coming Saturday using peach ink on white card stock.  I layered that on some stacked die cuts (Sizzix Framelits) both pink and orange and then stamped our Happy Retirement on 2 pieces of white card stock using pink ink.  All was layered on a folded white card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Rose Encrusted Follow Your Dreams Tag

>> Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Hello friends!

Here in Alabama, we have been having a lot of rain.  We needed it!

With rain comes pretty flowers and yummy corn and tomatoes.  To celebrate flowers today, my tag has some rolled roses made out old cookbook pages purchased at a thrift store and colored up with distress ink and spritzed with water (saturates the color).  

My tag is made out of recycled cardboard painted with some white chalk paint and then sponged a bit with distress ink and sprayed with some green Dylusions spray.

When doing the flower arranging, I tucked in some pieces of SU! Doily sprayed with the Dylusions and some Martha Stewart punched springs.  Took a bit of old cutdown ribbon and some gold twine for the tie.

This a sneak peak at a new DRS image coming out this week.  It is a very cool follow your dreams sign post.  I cut out the words, sponged them, and tucked them around the tag.

IRL this is sooo pretty and would totally dress up a present or gift bag. 



Follow Your Dreams

Hi Everyone,

It's that time of year again...Graduation time!  I've already received two announcements and party invitations, so I decided to get to work on a few cards.

DRS Designs has just released this new Follow Your Dreams Sign Post (137G) stamp which is perfect for the occasion of a graduation. I colored, die cut and matted it, adding it on top of an embossed background of grad caps.

I added a strip of green card stock to cover up the seam of the background and dove into my stash of brads for a few embellishments.  I stamped the Graduation Background, and fussy cut out a few and added those to my card as well.  The Congradulations stamp made for the perfect sentiment.

Don't forget!  This month is the Great Cling Stamp Give Away.... Every order of $20.00 or more, that is placed at the DRS Designs website, will be entered to win a prize package of 75 cling mounted stamps! What are you waiting for?

 Good luck :)


Picture Perfect Day!

Hi everyone. I'm super excited! Today I get to share one of the soon be released images here at DRS Designs. Isn't this little Sandy Mermaid adorable?! (182F)  I think she might just be my favorite of all the new releases.

I started by stamping her on white CS with Memento Black ink, colored her with Copics and then masked her off so I could sponge in the sea with some distress inks and then the sky with SU Bashful Blue. I used a die cut cloud as a mask too. Some sparkle was added to her tail with Wink of Stella and some waves were added with a white pen.

Nesties were used to die cut the frame and the greeting was stamped with Versafine Onyx ink. Some matching blue sequins were added. The blue panel was embossed with s SB waves folder and then everything was attached to the white card base.

Be sure to check back regularly to see all the new images coming soon. I know you're gonna love them. Don't forget the awesome giveaway. You can see details here.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!
