Blackberries Nestie Frame

PAD_NestieFrame_tbuOk, so check this out — are you ready?? Pez-aDoodle Designs has this frame for Nesties 2 available for $1.99 as a digital download!!!! How fabulous is that? I really am loving that more and more companies are offering digi stamps — they are so cool! You get the image in two different size, so it is like a two-for-one deal!

I cuttlebugged my two layers – the Memory Box dp and the Pink Pirouette cardstock. I added a bit of handstitching at the bottom, and a pretty gold edged organdy ribbon — I really wanted the frame to be the focus. My sentiment is from SU.

Sorry for the late post today – I’ve been in a whirlwind today trying to clean my craft room (I finally got enough off the floor to vacuum!!).  Have a wonderful day!!!!

Pez-A-Doodle Wednesday :)

PAD_StudioG_tbuThis Studio G card was made using the Sketch Tuesday card over at Christian Papercrafts Magazine. It was a challenging sketch for me, and I’m still not sure I love the card.

I used Studio G Stamps I purchased from Pez A Doodles Designs, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. The card itself is pretty simple. My base is Bordering Blue, then a layer of Lovely Lilac, then a layer of dp from a big stack of Me & My Big Ideas papers that I got for Christmas.

Cheers!

PAD_Cheers_tbuI totally adore this coffe cup ring image! It is from Queen Kat Designs. I paired it with a tiny circular Studio G stamp that says “Cheers”, which I got at Pez-a-Doodle Designs. I stamped both images using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain, and then used Tea Stain and Frayed Burlap to sponge around the edges.I used the Inkssentials Foam Ink Blending Tool to do my sponging – I love that thing! And just for fun I added some Pez-a-Doodle Pez-a-Blings embellies, just to finish it off. They sell in single color packs, as well as multi color packs. The color I used here is Brown Patina Sparkle 🙂

I went monochromatic on this card – it just seemed appropriate. It reminds me of being in a coffee shop!

Pez-a-Doodle Wednesday!

PAD_B&WStudioG_tbuSorry this is being posted so late y’all! I had an out of town doctor’s appointment to go to, that took up the better portion of my day. Do y’all ever feel like you’re never going to get caught up? That would be how I feel, lol!

My images are Studio G stamps, which I purchased at Pez-a-Doodle Designs. I also used Studio G ink to stamp them! The sentiment is in silver, and the stems in black. I was totally in the mood for a black and white card! It’s simpe, I know, but I’m just glad I had the time to stamp!

Gotta run and tuck the little one in!

Pezzy’s Garden

PAD_JustLove_tbu

I love love love this exclusive image from Pez-a-Doodle Designs! It is the most unique garden images I have ever come across, and I love everything about it 🙂 On this one I distressed my images using the Tim Tool for distressing. My lettering at the top is from the new series 32 from Studio G – fun font, huh?

I also used the Tim Holtz scrather tool for adding some texture to the top of the card, above the lettering. I love that tool!

Granola Cleo

pad_granolacleo_tbuThat’s right – Princess Cleo has gone granola on us! What do you think? LOL 🙂

I had more fun making this card – she is so fun to color! It’s a pretty simple layout  and I used Basic Grey Granola dp as my background. Once I tied the brown twill on, she was all done!

I really love the new images that Pez-a-Doodle has come out with – they are so cute! They totally feed my need for more Copics, though – I want to be able to color more! I hope everyone enjoys their Wednesdays – the work week is halfway over!

My sentiment is an adorable Studio G stamp that i got at Pez-a-Doodle Designs. I used Tim Holtz distress ink in Frayed Burlap to stamp it onto the cardstock, and it matched the brown in teh dp perfectly!!! If you are in search of a variety of Tim Holtz products, I cannot stress enough what an awesome selection Marti has!
