I hope you had a chance to visit the Stamp N Plus blog hop and see all the variations using The Dreamer stamp J 882. This pretty lady is the July stamp of the month and can be found HERE in the Fantasy Collection.
I had so much fun with this stamp that I chose a totally different color scheme and theme for this version. My previous card was blue and had a rainbow butterfly theme. In this card I used pink Prismacolor pencils and OMS to color The Dreamer. I gave her clothes some sparkle with a thin coat of Stickles. In this version she's blowing some magical pink bubbles (rhinestones). I've framed her with some glittery pink gift wrap paper and a white layer dry embossed with a Spellbinders embossing folder. The flourish across the bottom was a clearance item from Michaels.
Happy Monday...if you missed the blog hop you can still see all the Design Team creations using The Dreamer by clicking on the links in my previous post.
Here's today's card and it is a fruity treat! This pineapple image was fun to ink up and stamp. I cut it out with a Spellbinder's die. Then I ran it through an embpssisng folder to give it an almost "fabric" look. I used some yummy bright papers from October Afternoon to help highlight the image.
This stamp is found in the HOME EXPRESSIONS section of the Stamp'N Plus Scrap'N online store along with several other images that are great not only on cards, but to decorate items for the home.
There may be only a few species of flamingos in the world, but there are lots of interesting trivia and facts about them! One being that they are know for their plastic life as lawn ornaments.
I colored this sweet stamp with Copic R20, R11 and RV21, highlighting with BG10
Using a white base, I embossed the top with a large circle embossing folder, DCWV pink card stock, added three different May Arts ribbons, black webbing and finished with stitching and small black gems.

Today I am showing a get well card featuring stamps by Stamp N Plus. I used SNP powdered chalk mixed with paint to color in my image and make it match my patterned paper. I used Spellbinders Edgabilities to create the scallop border. The patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye and red cardstock by Stampin Up.
This gargoyle stamp from Stamp N Plus just cracks me up. I love gargoyles to begin with and Otto has the funniest expression on his face. He looks so casual and friendly, unlike many of his friends who look fierce. Maybe all gargoyles look this way when they are off duty. Anyway, that's how this card came to be created.
I had the perfect paper for Otto's background. It's a night skyline from DCWV's Downtown Loft stack. Otto was coloured with Prismacolor pencils, using OMS to blend. His glowy eyeballs are bling, coloured with an alcohol marker, and his sparkly white teeth are gel pen. Once he was perched on his building, he needed a starry sky and a sentiment generated on the computer, faux stitched and popped up on foam tape. Two tiny gold brads decorate each banner. A little Walnut Distress ink around the edges finished off this fun card. Easy-peasy!
Be sure to check out Otto and his buds at the Stamp N Plus store site. Also, you have a few days left to enter our Anything Goes Challenge by clicking the link at the top of this blog. Come join the fun!

Tim, Heidi and the gang are back with a new season of Project Runway. I thought I'd join the fun and play fashion designer with another beautiful Iris Folding stamp from Stamp N Plus. This one is new and not up on the website yet but you can order it by calling LuAnn directly715-271-1873. For my design I stamped the image on the back of the pattern paper (Basic Grey) and cut out the outline of the dress with a craft knife. The stamped image has all the guidelines and is numbered so it is just like paint by numbers to know how to place the folded strips. The bodice is done in glittery wrapping paper from Michaels. The skirt is folded strips of a glittered organdy ribbon from JoAnn's. I used a Spellbinders oval scallop die to cut the frame. The shoulder decoration is a piece of an earring. The flourishes were cut from the same paper as the bodice with a die from Marianne Createables. Silk flowers with rhinestone center complete my design. Happy Monday, Paulette
I continuously stamped the teapot image in rows to create a unique background. I layered that piece of paper onto purple cardstock and then added vellum on top of that to create another layer to my base. I attached the vellum using eyelets and my Crop-O-Dile. The next layer is the purple die cut,which I cut out with my Cricut using the Storybook cartridge. Next is another die cut from the same cartridge and the very last die cut is from a Creative Memories punch.
I combined the stardust chalk and paint together and painted it on this die cut. Once it was dry I stamped my sentiment over the chalked area.
This ostrich ride stamp from Stamp N Plus is such a fun image. It seemed a perfect stamp for the sentiment I wanted for a card. Sometimes when things are a little out of whack or out of our control, the best thing to do is to hold on tight and ride it out :)
I stamped the image on white cardstock and coloured it with Prismacolor pencils. A little white pen was added to the neck and tail feathers and a little glitter pen to the edges of her dress to add sparkle. The image was then cut out with an oval die, inked around the edge, and matted on black and then pink cardstock. Foam dots were used between layers for dimension. The sentiment was computer generated, cut out with a template, and matted with black cardstock. Four little brads and some doodling finished it off.
The background harlequin paper was matted with black and then pierced in the corners to add another detail. Flat back pearls were placed in the corners next to the piercing. Two more layers of pink and black cardstock were added to frame up the background paper. The white border of the actual card base was left showing to pick up on the white in the center of the card.
Thanks for dropping by today. Remember to check out our Anything Goes Challenge this month by using the link at the top of this blog. We always love to see what you've been creating.
It's been a hot, dry summer here in the MadCity so I decided to do a cool theme this week. This stamp is F-PP 111 from Stamp N Plus' Pepe & Fufu collection. I chose some cool citrus colors to complement Pepe as he floats down a lazy river.
For this week's card, I chose a sweet and simple floral image that gets inked up and stamped and is done--no coloring in the lines. I used some mini dye inks pads from Vivid that I have had forever. When I stamped, I found the stamp actually has a faint little "texture" to it that I loved! I stamped several times on the paper, letting the image go off the paper in spots. The I layered it to a piece of coral red card stock to help the images pop a bit. I used a Martha Stewart punch to cut a strip the length of my card and ran a ribbon through it. I adhered that to my card and added the matching bow. Then I stamped the image once and cut it into a rectangle. I punched a strip of the coral red card stock, using a Stampin' Up punch. Cut the strip in half and adhere it around the single image. Adhere with pop dots as shown. Then finish off using a Pearl Paint Pen to make dots in the centers of the flowers. The image is from STAMPIN' PLUS SCRAP'N of course!
I stamped the image using Memento Black Tuxedo ink onto white card stock, then colored using Copic Sketch Markers. Colors used are B06, B41, B31, E23,25, R20, RV21, YG 23, YG0, YG03 Bird was colored using E31, B41, BG11. I used small square Basic Grey jewels.
Sizzix heart die, sheer brown ribbon and small dot embossing folder. Designer papers are all from my stash (got to love those extra pieces we all save).
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting Stamp N Plus today!
Hello... Happy Friday... It's been super HOT here lately, and we have been swimming a lot. We don't have many beaches here, but it would be fun to go to one. So since I was thinking about beaches, I thought of making a card with a beach. I stamped with F-PP 109 Fufu Sun bathin stamp, and PP05 Hot Diggity Dog. I paper pieced the umbella and the beach towel. The sand is colored with a Copic marker and dotted with a Copic Colorless blender.
Stamps: F-PP 109 Fufu Sun bathin stamp, and PP05 Hot Diggity Dog
Paper: white, brown, K&Company Animal Tales DP
Ink: Memento Black
Accessories: The Twinery Baker's twine brown and white, foam tape, Copic Markers, colorless blender pen
This weeks Stamp N Plus blog card is featuring flower stamp X 311 that I painted in with powdered chalk and paint. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink as well as the sentiment. The sentiment stamp is also by Stamp N Plus and I stamped off one time (with the black ink) to get it the lighter shade.
Die cut by Spellbinders, patterned paper by MME and distressing ink by Ranger.
Happy Wednesday! This time I am featuring a card with multiple images of a smaller stamp. Creating a grid pattern is a great way to use a stamp which could look lost all by itself.
For this card, I used the Stamp N Plus Scrap N Triangle Kitty stamp. It looks like a child's drawing and is so fun and quirky. I stamped the image four times on white cardstock and cut it out as rectangles all the same size. The images were coloured with Prismacolor pencils. The white rectangles were matted on black cardstock to frame them and give them some weight.
Once they were adhered to the purple checked background paper in a grid, a computer generated sentiment was added, also matted in black. Four brads and a knotted ribbon were added to finish off this clean and simple card.
This card works because of the high contrast, crisp layout, and a cute simple image repeated multiple times. Try this with some of your smaller stamps or better yet, check out the stamps at the Stamp N Plus site. There are many there that work beautifully on this type of card.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you find time to get inky today.
Another iris fold dress stamp from Stamp N Plus. This stamp is so new it isn't on the website yet but you can order by calling LuAnn at 715-271-1873. I thought the blue & white polka dots would give this dress a Summery feel. The blue flower is felt and attached with a brad. The tiny flower on the dress was made with a Carl punch. The leaves are cut from a Cheery Lynn tropical leaf die. There are many iris fold dress stamps at Stamp N Plus. As I explained in a previous post---this technique is just as simple as paint-by-number. The stamp has lines to guide you where to place the folded paper strips and the lines are numbered. Stamp on the back, cut out the dress with a craft knife and then working from the backside, place the folded strips and secure them with tape. You too can play Project Runway.
Hello and Happy Sunday! I am assuming everyone survived all the July 4th festivities and are back to the regularly scheduled program! I am actually in Austin, TX today staying with my daughter who will be getting married next Saturday. We are taking this week to finish up some wedding projects, have our nails done, go out to lunch etc. She is the youngest of our four girls and it doesn't seem possible that she is grown up, teaching school, and now getting married. Next week I will post a picture of her on my blog so you can see how beautiful she looks in her wedding gown!
Here is my card for this week. It's all about bees! I have a new die from Sizzix that makes these flip cards, and I used it for this card. Of course all the images are from STAMP'N PLUS SCRAP'N. I actually got these stamps to make tags for honey jar favors for the wedding, but then she opted for Jelly Belly jellybeans instead! Anyway, I love how well they all worked with this card.
When you flip the card up, you find this adorable sentiment on the opposite side of the circle.
The card was super simple using the die to cut two colors of card stock and gluing them together. Add the lacy border and stamp your images then color. Add a little bow and you're done!
Hello.... TGIF.... So glad it's Friday since the weatherman said that today is suppose to be the last day of the scourching temperatures. So how about a get well card for someone that's under the weather? I stamped with a cute Patti's Kid cowgirl, Wishin Wendy J2536.
Stamps: Stamp n Plus Scrap n: Wishin Wendy J2536, Get Well Wishes
Paper: white, brown
Ink: Memento Black, Versafine Black
Accessories: Copic Markers, Cuttlebug Swirls Emboss Folder, ribbon, foam tape
In honour of America's b-day, I decided to feature a birthday card today. I used the large Patti's Kids birthday in envelope stamp (J2691) for the focal on this card. This is such a fun image to colour and works for all ages, male and female. I coloured it in with my Prismacolor pencils and paper pieced the balloons. The center balloon was popped up on foam tape for dimension. The image was cut out using a Spellbinders die and then matted on black for contrast. A doodled border was done with a Micron pen.
The background is paper from the old scrap pile matted on black. Black and white ribbon was adhered to the background and black glittery brads added to the bottom right corner so that the point of the focal piece fit inside the brad corner. The image was popped up on foam tape and a tiny ribbon pull was added to the top.

ANYTHING GOES- Challenge #2
Here is Some Inspiration from our Creative Design Team!
I chose a red, white & blue color palette to celebrate the 4th of July holiday. This Patti's kids stamp is Amy & Rascal J2529 and can be foundhere. I paper-pieced Amy's entire outfit & shoes. Rascal was also paper-pieced. The flower brads were added to the hat & pants leg. The die cuts are from a Marianne Creatables die. The flowers are punched with a Carl punch and embellished with rhinestone centers. Hope you are celebrating this week---it's America's Birthday.
I haven't used one of these Robar Designs images in a while. They are fun and there are tons of them at our Stamp'N Plus Scrap'N Online Store. This one is called "Sunday Best." I covered the front of a card with red card stock and layered that with green dotted designer paper. Using a border punch, I punched two zigzag strips in red and one in white and adhered them to my card. I adhered the white circular die cut and added the image in the center, using dimensional dots. The white embellishment is made from felt and I added the red button in the middle. This generic card is good for a birthday, get well, friendship or "hello" card.
