Nana is Tea-Riffic!

Greetings fellow paper crafters!  Today I wanted to get a head start on my Mother's Day cards, so I started by making a card for my mom, from her grandchild.  I am in love with the You Take The Cake digi set from Sunsational Stamps.  You can find the set Here.
I started by printing the teapot and the teacup on patterned paper by Authentique, they have such pretty papers.  I also printed a series of the flower blossom on the papers as well.  I used my one inch Fiskars circle punch to pop out the flowers and fussy cut the teapot and cut.  I alternated the two patterns of the flowers along the left side, for a border.
Nana You Are Tea-Riffic Card
I cut out the cute double frame using the Fitted Frames 3 Curvy Rectangles by Elizabeth Craft Design.  I popped up the cup and pot overlapping the frame, added a heart from a  Raisin Boat set.  I made the 'Nana' banner with some alpha stickers in my stash, mounted the whole kit-n-kaboodle on a salmon pink cardstock base and called it done!

Best Mom

 Good Morning Peeps,

I am shylaa here today to show you my work on Hoppy Set - Digi Stamp.

I have made a card for my mom and these bunnies are so cute and its real fun working with it.

Steps involved in making this card.
1. Printed the digi on a 300 GSM Matrix paper and water coloured the digi's with distress inks.
2. Stenciled the heart image with modelling paste and Timholtz stencil. Added some 3D glitters to the blank space on the heart image and adhered the sentiment over it.
3. Used the Salty ocean distress inks for cloud effect  at background
4.Arranged the digis in a way to the card base to get a pleasant card

Hope you like it.

Thanks again for joining us.

Always Close To My Heart

Hi, there crafty friends, LeeAnn here today with a project not so easy for me to make. This is a Mother's Day card that I will be taking to the Cemetery on Mother's Day, to give to my mom. Mother's Day is 2 days after what would be my mom's 72nd birthday.

I used the Bear Love and Always Pick You sets for this project.
First I printed the two digital sets in the desired size, I then used my Scan N Cut to cut the Bear and a set of the flowers.
I then used some rectangle stitched dies to cut out the tombstone layers, and a hillside stitched to cut the lawn. I used a postage stamp die to cut out the background later. I used Summer Sky "fireworks" spray from Imagine Crafts to spritz the background.
The sentiment is from the Bear Love set and I used MS Paint to size it properly, color the background and then printed.
I used my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to color the bear and flowers/vase. At this point, I used Kaisercraft double stick tape to adhere the background, hillside, and bear. I used my Xyron X to adhere the smaller stone cut to the larger as well as the little sentiments and the flowers. I used dimensional foam to adhere the tombstone and the sentiment and my project was complete.

I hope you have enjoyed this project. Please come back tomorrow to see what Shylaa has made for you. Please be sure to follow our blog.

Items Used:
Bear Love
Always Pink You

Spectrum Noir:
Bear: GB8/GB9, True Black, TB4 and DP1
Vase: GB8

Spring is Ducky

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with another post for Sunsational Stamps.  Have you seen all the stamps and images in the store?  Today, I'm using Sping is Ducky.

Spring is Ducky

Aren't they cute?

I love these feet sticking out of the water, so I just had to use this image!  I used an oval die to cut the image, cutting around the pussy willows so they remained free.  Then I matted this on a larger oval.

I colored the image with Copic Markers.  To create the background I used a Sizzix embossing folder to emboss the front panel of the card.  Then to emphasize the pattern, I then inked it and wrapped it   with twine.

Don't you love it?

Be sure you visit in the store to see all the fun products available.

So happy you stopped by.

Hoppy Mother's day

Hi, Marji here,  I'm back this week with a fun Mother's day card using that adorable new bunny set I gave you a peak of last week.
You must go check out the set in the store,
I created this cute scene in my SIL program and cut 3 sets of balloons to make a fun card.

The little basket is a die cut I have, I thought it would be cute for him to be giving his mom some carrots as part of her gift.

 I used my gel pens to add some shine to his face, foot and the butterfly.

A Hoppy Mother's Day to you...

Hello friends, I am here today with another gorgeous digital stamp set from Sunsational Stamps. This 'Hoppy set' is available to purchase online at

As you can see above, it is a chock full set with three cute bunnies and a number of sentiments and embellishments for your card making or paper craft projects. A versatile set too - suitable for many occassions - Easter, Mothers Day, Fathers Day and birthdays just to name a few. The background of this card uses a gelli print that I did some time ago - I like to mono print a number of backgrounds and then use them as I see fit at the time - they could be used for a card, planner page or scrapbook layout. Whilst it's tricky to see in the photo, the shine of the metallic paints in this piece is just lovely. Let's take a closer look...

The bunny and flowers were coloured using Zig Clean Colour Real Brush pens. I am still learning to colour with these but like the watercoloured look they provide. The sentiment 'Hoppy Mothers Day' was coloured using these pens also. Let's take one last close up look at that cute bunny....

Thanks again for joining me and I hope you will pop on over to the Sunsational Stamps online shop at and blog at to see the amazing work by the Design Team - such a talented bunch! Until next time....

Just Hopping By ........

..... to share a card with you using the very cute 'Hoppy Set':

You can find it here in the shop area of the website.

I've used one of the bunnies and the 'Mother's Day' sentiment for my card.  I decided to make my bunny a different colour so I used my Promarkers to colour the image in and then I fussy cut the bunny and stuck him and the sentiment to a circle die cut.

I layered the card up with patterned papers and and my embellishments are punched paper dots - easy to match to your paper and great if you're posting your card because they're flat!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend

Just Hatched

Today I'm sharing another card I made with Sunsational Stamps digital images.  I used the Eggstra Special Easter and the Eggstra Adorable collections from their April release.

I used the duck and nest from the first collection and the shell from the second collection to make this sliding pop-up card.

I've made sliding pop-up cards before, but this is the first time I made it in the horizontal or landscape orientation.  Making it this way allows for a wider image, and that's what I wanted for this l'il duck.
But I want to tell you a bit more about how I combined the various digis to make this image.  First, I imported all the images into my Silhouette.  Working with the duck first, I placed his feet where I wanted them, knowing I wanted them to peek over the top of the nest.

With the nest, I made two copies.  On one, I erased the top pieces as I wanted to place it in front of the duck.  The second nest, I placed behind the duck.

The final touch was to erase the bunny from under the egg shell and then placed the shell on the little duck's head.  Here's a closer look:

For the card, itself, I started by printing and cutting mats of digital patterned paper from the Adorableness Kit by Traci Reed.  I matched it to Melon Mambo, Summer Sun and Garden Green card stocks for the mats and card base.

On the reverse, a simple congratulations on the birth of a daughter.

The beauty of this 3D card is that it closes flat for mailing.  And here's a look at that:

I'll see you in two weeks with another card.  In the meantime, if you want to take a look at all the photo-polymer and digital stamps Sunsational Stamps, just click here
