C4C: Rockin' Birthday

Today is my final post as the April guest designer for the Crazy4challenges blog.

Today's inspiration is music!

Great excuse to drag out this fun stamp set from The Stamps of Life.


The stamp set is called Guitars2play.

I used the Sizzix Square Stand Up card die for the card base.

This is how it looks when it is closed up ready to mail.



I colored the guitars with Prisma colored pencils.
The paper is Happy Birthday paper pad.


Not sure who is getting this but I know they will love it!

Check out more music inspiration on the  Crazy4challenges blog.

Cute Boots


Continuing on with the Stampendous Spring Showers theme this week with this brightly colored image and fun sentiment!

I was so excited when Stampendous sent me this cute Puddle Boots stamp.
Any one of these would make rain more enjoyable!


I created an easel card today and this is how it looks when it's closed up and ready to mail.

I colored the boots with my prisma colored pencils.

The Cute Boots sentiment stamp comes as one big stamp but I only inked up the top portion for the front of the card.


Then I inked up the lower portion of the stamp for the inside of the card.

The flowers are Prima Mktg and I used Recollection mini brads for the center of the flowers.


The Puddle Boots were stamped on a panel die cut out with the Fitted Frames B.

Lots more inspiration can be found on the

No One is as Sweet as you

So many great new products have been released in the past month from The Stamps of Life.

Stephanie sent me this new Sweet Statement set to play with and I love it!


This card was pretty quick to make since I mostly used dies.

The cupcake is the triplet cupcake.



Stephanie will be releasing a new Sentiment die/stamp set each month.  I have seen the next few months already and they are fabulous!
Save your pennies because you will want them all!

Droplets

This week the Stampendous team is celebrating April Showers...rain, wedding showers...baby showers...what ever inspires you.

I thought this House Mouse image would be perfect for the challenge!



I colored the image with Prisma pencils and blended with gamsol and blending stumps.


The background paper was created by pasting the rain stencil with regular embossing paste and then sponging blue ink over it after it dried.


Check out the Stampendous Blog for more inspiration.
