Today's preview uses the stamp set Elegant Sentiments, and I love the look of these images! The full set comes with three shapes and five sentiments, for my card I decided to create a classy birthday card using one of the sentiments and one of the two oval frames. I played along with this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge and used the colors Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist, and Bashful Blue. I stamped the sentiment in Bashful Blue and then again in Chocolate Chip, which creates a sort of shadow on the 'Happy Birthday' image. I also off stamped the frame so that it was a combination of the brown and blue I used. I finished off this card with some of the fun Linen May Arts ribbon and these self adhesive pearls.

Today I get to share with you this adorable little girl called Heartfelt! I love how warm and bundled up she looks, perfect for the cold that comes in February, and perfect for any Valentine's creation too. I wanted to make a card using colors that you don't see a lot in a Valentine's Day card, so I pulled different colors from this sheet of Basic Grey paper in the Sugar Rush pad.

Happy Birthday Jodie!

Do you know what today is? Well it's Monday, November 29th, which is Jodie's birthday! That's right the fabulous owner and illustrator for Bugaboo Stamps is celebrating her birthday today! In celebration of this special occasion, we are having a birthday blog hop! Today's Hop started at Tammy's Blog so if you are happening upon the hop here, please head back up to Tammy's Blog so you don't miss a step along the way!

I decided for Jodie's Birthday I needed to make her a sweet and fun card so I pulled out my Birthday Eggbert image and got to work. I just received all of the Fluorescent colors from Copic, so I wanted to play with them all in one image, and this image let me do just that! This image is just so much fun, if you don't have the whole Eggbert collection yet, what are you waiting for! I hope you have an amazing birthday Jodie, you deserve a day just for you!

Your next stop along the Blog Hop is Jeanie's Blog, so be sure to keep on hopping and make sure you hop all the way to Jodie's Blog and wish her a very happy birthday! Have a fabulous day all!

Today's card is entered into the current Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge - have a bow on your card.

Monday Whatnots!

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Today is another Monday Whatnots at Paper Pretties! That's right, today we are releasing two adorable digital images from ARTish! ARTish has joined our team as both an illustrator and as a design team member, and we are thrilled to have her!

With the addition of ARTish to our team, we are also adding a new weekly release! ARTish's images are going to be digital downloads and we will be releasing at least 2 new digi images every single Monday....They will be called "Paper Pretties Monday Whatnots...What's not to love!".

ARTish's illustration style is such a perfect fit with our Paper Pretties family! If you love to color you will LOVE her images! For my card today I decided to use this adorable lion image, his name is Leonardo Lion. This fabulous image would be great for a little boys card, and I love how he is wearing this crown on his head, he sort of reminds me of Aslan from the tale The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe....what do you think, do you see him? I hope you like what I created for you today, this image was a lot of fun to play with!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great day, be sure to stop by every Monday to see the next release from ARTish!

For today I decided to ink up A Box of Love, one of four new Pure Innocence images to be released this month. I don't know about you, but the Pure Innocence line from My Favorite Things has grabbed my attention since I first saw one image posted with these cuties! It was so hard to decide where to start with these images for me this month since they were all so darn cute, I finally went with this image for today's card and I love how it turned out! I also got the chance to use one of this month's new Die-namics, are you ready for this one? It's called the Flower Border Die and it is just precious, simply perfect for any Pure Innocence creation, especially the adorable love-y ones that are being released this month!
Isn't this Die-namic just too cute! I used it as part of my ribbon embellishment, I thought it would be a different way to show off the die. I also layered the darling candy box so that it popped up at you, they are screaming my name they look so yummy! Then to finish off the entire card I added a few Baby Bradies from the Adornments section of My Favorite Things, I have these in so many colors that these cute little pink ones are just perfect for and some straight pins I found too!

I hope you enjoyed my card for today, be sure to head on over to Kim's Blog after 11 am EST today to see who else is sharing teasers! Also, be sure to come back here tomorrow for more teasers! Have a fabulous day all!

Now onto my creations! I couldn't decide which of these two sets to play along with, so I inked them both up! First up today is the soon to be released Flopsey, Ice Skating Flopsey! I used this fun and wintery blue paper and a few different shades of blue. I also used the Die-namic Let It Snowflake dies to create this layered snowflake and finished off the embellishment by adding a white button with a bit of bakers twine tied in a bow. He is always such a cuddle and cuddly bunny!I also got a chance to play along with the new Flapper Doodles stamp set Cheers to a New Year! I pulled out this fun and bright dp that I found in my stash and paper pieced the Flapper Doodles Dresses. These girls know how to party and no party is complete without some shine, ribbon and bling. I also pulled out my Die-namics Decorative Doily Die, this die might be my current favorite, I love the elegant detail it adds to any card. I also used some of this fabulous May Arts Chevron Ribbon, it matches the party mood of the card.

MFT Teaser Time!

Today is the first Teaser Time at My Favorite Things! That's right, I was invited to be part of the December Temp Team at My Favorite Things! Today we are sharing with you creations using three fabulous stamp sets! I decided to play along with the soon to be released stamp set Tweeny Teen: You Give Me Wings!

Teaser prizes begin today, so be sure to leave comments at each stop! Just by commenting, you could win one of two $10 gift vouchers! (Two prizes will be awarded every day of previews.) You can check back with Kim each day for winners.

This stamp set is from the Tweeny Teen Line at My Favorite Things and she is simply fabulous! Not only do you get this adorable main image, but this set comes with four different sentiments. I picked out the sentiment 'Spread Your Wings and Fly' for my card and layered it on some oval punches and then popped it up on pop dots!

For the focus of my card I cut out this adorable fairy image and popped her up on a nestabilities large oval and sponged in a field of color. I also went through my Die-namic stash (yes, I have lots) and used my Scalloped Scallop Die as part of my card. I love this Die-namic, in fact this was the first one I owned and I got it as part of one of the VIP kits before Die-namics were released. Then of course, no card is complete without some ribbon and a giant bow for good measure.

I hope you enjoyed my card for today, be sure to head on over to Kim's Blog after 11 am EST to see who else is sharing a teaser with you today! Be sure to come back here tomorrow for more teasers! Have a fabulous day all!

Thank You At Paper Pretties

Today is Wednesday, so you know what that means, it's time for another Paper Pretties Challenge! So this week our challenge is to create a 'Thank You', super simple, right? In fact I never seem to have a 'Thank You' on hand when I need it!

I had a lot of fun with this new image, it's called Pink or Blue? and it's one of this weeks newly released digi images. If you didn't know, the Paper Pretties Store sells this fun baby image in digi format, in fact we releases at least two new digis illustrated by ARTish every week. I wanted to create a card that could be used as a thank you for a baby shower or baby gift, this image is just perfect for that! I wanted it to be sweet and girly, so I used this fun white satin ribbon, some scallops and bling! You can't go wrong with bling!

The Crafty Hos Challenge

So today is Sunday which means that it's time for another Crafty Ho's Challenge! That's right, a great group of friends of mine, the 'Ho's', created a challenge blog called Crafty Ho's Challenge Blog! Each week on Sunday we share with everyone more creations using the same challenge as inspiration! This week we are challenging you to create a card using Fall colors!

I decided that this is all about those bold and bright fall colors, but I wanted to use my Warm Drinks and Cold Days set from Artful INKables! I love the bright colors that you see in the leave when they change, the colors are almost unnatural. I also created this card as part of a swap I was a part of that used only Artful INKables stamps.

Be sure to check out the rest of our great group of Hos, I know their creations will be fabulous!

You are going to love these ladies and all of their creations and I can't wait to see what you create along with us! Hope to see you back here next Sunday for our next challenge! Have a wonderful day all!
