TAWS Be Inspired Challenge #55

Hi everyone! It's time for a new Be Inspired Challenge over at The Alley Way Stamps! The inspiration photo is perfect for hot Summer Days - cold and sweet pink lemonade. Who doesn't love an icy glass of pure summer sweetness?

I played on the lemonade inspiration and created some pink lemon wedges with the super cute mini set, Lemon Squeezy. That is where pink lemonade comes from, right? I colored the wedges with a few shades of pink Copic markers and added some Stickles glitter for more sweetness and shine. I love red and pink together and added in some striped ribbon to match the photo and a bright red sentiment too! The tiny starburst image stamped in a watery blue, is from the set Buggin' Out.

On the inside, just one lemon wedge image and another bright red sentiment! Did this post make you yearn for an icy glass of pink lemonade? Yum!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!

Supplies Used:
Copic and Bazzil Cardstock
Stampin' Up and Memento Ink
Copic Markers
Stickles Glitter
Red/White chevron ribbon from Caramelos Shop

Little Birdie Notecards!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday to you! Summer is in full swing here in Colorado and our backyard is full of birds chirping and flying and pooping…that is my least favorite part! However, they have inspired me to get crafty and create this sweet notecard set!

I started with a cute little house from the new Mrs. Rogers Neighborhood stamp set and then added in lots of green boughs and colored berries from the also new mini stamp set Wreathed in Love. The tiny birdie was cut from the Birds of a Feather SVG file and then stamped in a different color for each card. Don't you just love that little heart on its bottom!?!

A simple sentiment adorns each notecard and I used three different stamp sets for just the right word! The scalloped edges add a bit of interest and I used lots of bright colors!

Cute little notecards for just about any occasion! These would make an adorable gift for somebody sweet and special!

Supplies Used:
Papertrey Ink card stock
Stampin' Up and Memento inks
Stampin' Up scallop border punch
Copic Markers

Confetti Congrats!

Hi everyone! I am loving this new background stamp, Seeing Spots, from The Alley Way Stamps! It's large enough to cover an A2 card in one fell swoop and who doesn't love polka dots! They are always happy!

I used the stamp to create a fun congrats card complete with happy confetti! I removed the red ink from some of the larger dots in the image so I could add in accents of silver for a bit of elegance! I used the large dot image from another new set, Pick One, to add the confetti spots back in. The large Congrats is from Big Chatter and I added in a shadow image too!

More confetti in red and silver on the inside along with a happy sentiment from the Wish Big set! A fun card for a fun time!

Hi everyone! Hope you all are having a fab summer! I just recently returned from a trip to New York City and Switzerland where we had a wonderful time! Switzerland gets a lot more rain (usually!) than we do here in Colorado,  so there are bunches and bunches of gorgeous flowers everywhere! Those flowers were the inspiration for this card covered in the beautiful blooms from the new stamp set Pick One from The Alley Way Stamps!

These new images are now available at the TAWS store and if you love floral sets then you should definitely add this set to your stamp collection! Lots of different size flowers, leaves and accents that you can combine or use alone. There is also an SVG file too! I opted for a softer look and layered the blooms in pastel colors across the top and bottom of the front panel. I stamped in a few of the polka dot accents and topped it off with a tag accented with some of the images cut with the SVG file! A pretty purple bow is the finishing touch.

More beautiful flowers layered on the inside too! I left lots of white space to add in a sweet sentiment or a personal message. Go and check out this set and the other new releases available now at The Alley Way Stamps

Be Inspired Again #54

Hi everyone! I just can't help myself! I have another card to share created with the oh so adorable images in the Mrs. Rogers Neighborhood stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps! Plus, there are still two weeks left in the Be Inspired Challenge #54 so this was a great opportunity to combine the two!

I used the softness of the BIC photo as my inspiration. Love the pastel colors (which I don't normally do) mixed with those delicate florals and polka dots. I created a sweet scene using just a few of the stamps in this super cute set along with some patterned paper in soft colors that mimic the patterns found in the inspiration photo. I brought out the pink with a simple strand of pink ribbon.

More of the patterned paper on the inside along with a heartfelt sentiment and some of the cutest little flowers ever! Perfect for those important people in your life that are far away! Enjoy your 4th of July holiday!

Welcome Home!

Hi everyone! Have you seen the charming and adorable new stamp set, Mrs. Rogers Neighborhood, by The Alley Way Stamps? It is full of cute houses and tiny accessories to go along with them!

I decided to take some of that cuteness and put it into a welcome home card! I opted for one of my favorite color combos of red and black and made a sweet little grouping of trees and a happy home! A washi tape background gives it a bit of quirk and I added in a cute tag complete with a twine accent!

Another view of the happy home on the inside with one more lovely tree. The sweet sentiment is also from this adorable set too! Check out all of the new July release stamp sets over at The Alley Way Stamps!
