Friendship Toucan

Hello, Stampers!

I just got some new stamps/dies from Reverse Confetti that I wanted to share with you.  This set is called Friendship Toucan.  I adore this set & it is so much fun to play with.  Here’s the card I made…


You’re So Tweet

There are so many possibilities with this set…and there is another sweet image with the Toucan on a branch.  I just couldn’t resist getting it!

Hope you’re having a stamping wonderful day today.

Remember, keep smilin’,

Sunny Studio Birthday Blog Hop

Doublestick Heaven

Birthday Blog Hop-WEBHi there! Today I’m very excited to join Sunny Studio for a blog hop celebrating their 1st birthday…yay! Happy Birthday Sunny Studio!Sunny Studio-Autumn SplendorI’ve created two projects featuring the gorgeous Autumn Splendor stamp set.
Sunny Studio-Autumn SplendorThis first card shows how fun this set is for multi-step layering. I stamped each solid leaf image and then stamped the half-leaf image in a darker color. This really looks awesome and using a MISTI makes it effortless.
Sunny Studio-Autumn SplendorI die cut an oval window to add a sentiment also included in the Autumn Splendor set.

For this project I used the “highlight stamping technique” where you stamp the solid image in white first and then a second time in a darker color, a bit off set. This technique works perfectly with these solid images.

Penny Black Watercolour Garden!

Today I have a card sharing a fun image that I coloured when I was camping at the beach recently.  Somehow, when I started cutting it down it ended up smaller and on an angle…   so I added a bold design paper background to make it pop.
