Love Bugs

Love is certainly in the air with these love bug bees!  The googly eyed insects with their hearts all a flutter make life wonderful!

The background is stamped and embossed.  The bees are set just on the edge of the cut circle.  Hearts in the background finish the card.

Go On An Adventure

Hi stamping friends!  Have you had a chance to play along with the challenge this month?  Time to get out those animal stamps because I am following the theme.  

Using some cardstock and printed paper, three circles were cut using different sizes.  The animals were stamped on scrap cardstock and cut out.  After coloring an placing the die cut behind the deer, all the critters were placed in the die cut circles.  The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed in white.  Then, black pearls were used for the animal eyes.

Thanks forstopping by and today, I hope you adventure a little.  Go somewhere new or try a new design, stamp or technique.

A project a day is the goal for me this year.  It can be making something or cleaning up a space.  Today is a double hit as I clean up these old calendars that were headed for the garbage and make envelopes I can mail cards in.

The calendar is made of thick paper and with a label, the calendar is recycled!

Thanks for stopping by and have fun recycling!

Full Steam Ahead

Full steam ahead making valentines!  This valentine is for my grandson who loves trains.  He loves to go and watch the trains come in and leave the train yard.  He can tell you all about the train company etc.  

These are two different stamps.  The heart stamp was stamped first and then masked.  The train, new stamp to me. was stamped over the mask so it looks like it is kicking up all the hearts!  A matching envelope was made too.

I have a lot of valentines, so full steam ahead to stamp some more!

It's A Girl Think: Kindness

Hi stamping friends!  STAMPlorations has released new stamp sets!  

These sets contain so many positive word stamps and fun images!  I love the script used for the words.  

Using lots of colors, the words were stamped for the background.  It is fun to use many of the stamps included in the set to make a card.  The images were stamped and white heat embossed on circles.   A few stickers were added to complete the card.

Favorites of 2018

Blogs have been posting their faves of 2018 and it is fun to see their favorites in one post.  It is fun to look at your faves all together and a great way to end the my case, start the year!!  So here we go!  If you click on the picture, it should take you to the blog post.

Love adding color!  These layouts are the same but look totally different.

I love making patriotic cards.  I love these  cards because I  like how the stamp is used in the design.  I also like how the paint in the background is so vibrant.  I mail most of my cards but these will stay in my favorites box.

This card was fun because the stamp helped create the camo background and I love this deer stencil.

I think Shery should rename this stencil.  I think a good name would be errie.'s stencil!  I love it and use it often.  The blue backgroun with the white circles makes me think of whimsical.

And last but not least, is a card from the punny side of myself!  I like humor and this represents my quirky side.

I hope you have enjoyed 2018 in review.  I have had fun putting it together.  Most of the products used on the cards are STAMPlorations.  If you are looking for stamps, dies, stencils or inspiration head over there.  If you are purchasing any products, use code STAMPGIRLJERRIE at checkout and save 20% off your order.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative 2019!

Adventure Lives Outside Your Tent

Hi stamping friends and welcome to the first STAMPlorations challenge for 2019!  This is a fun challenge as the theme is

I try not to think of the critters that lurk outside the tent when I go camping because I would be to scared to sleep outside!  These cute raccoons do not scare me though!

Using color bursts, the front panel was made.  It looked odd until it was splattered with white paint for the stars.  A circle was cut out and placement for the images was layed out.  The images were stamped and colored.  I love how the racoon eyes glow in the moonlight.  A stencil was used to add the moonlight and the cracks of light.  To finish the card the sentiment was whte heat embossed on the front panel and three stars were added.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you join us for this challenge.  Make 2019 a creative year!
