I'll Stop The World and Melt With You

I hope you are staying cool! Seriously is there anything better than a frozen treat on a hot summer day?
Today I'm playing with the Sugar Pea Designs Summer Scoops stamp set! This set includes LOTS of solid double stamp images so there's no coloring involved. Each treat is stamped first with a light shade of ink and the accents are added with a darker shade of the same color. I used a stamp tool so I could double stamp the images and get lots of color! 
The set even includes frozen pops, soft serve swirls, a cone, wood sticks, sundae toppings and a maraschino cherry! YUM! The sweet sentiment is stamped on a Stitched Flag Sugar Cut and tucked under one of the cones. 
I layered the Geo Floral Panel over an ombre pink distress ink panel. I left lots of the die cut pieces in the center in place to create a solid background for the colorful die cuts. I thought it would look too "busy" if I popped them all out. I think the edges look like lace! 
I had lots of fun stamping in so many different colors and have lots left over for other projects. I still can't resist a rainbow of color that are a feast for my eyes.

Momenta Cactus Mixed Media Stickers

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your summer is off to a good start. There's been lots of rain here in the Midwest but that's not stopping the carnivals, corn roasts and home town festivals. Rainy days mean crafty days for me! 
Today I'm playing with stickers from Momenta! When I started papercrafting I used to purchase alot of stickers. As my skills evolved I stopped buying stickers because I didn't like their flat appearance on my projects. These stickers from Momenta are out of this world!
The big sheet of multi media stickers is total eye candy worthy of all your papercrafting projects. The stickers are made of different materials like cork, wood veneer, and foam. They have lots of wonderful accents too like gold foil, gems, and glitter.
The stickers that are made of paper are layered and thick to add lots of texture to your projects.
My watercolor look background paper is from Momenta's Peony paper pad. The lacy die cut accent is from the Intricate Flower Border die cut set. 
If you haven't looked at stickers in a while you need to give these a second look. They're so beautiful!

You can find all your favorite Momenta products at your local craft store - like Hobby Lobby! or on line at Scrapbook.com.

Have a great day!

Tag You're It - Tropical Bird


A new challenge begins today at Tag You're It Challenge Blog
This time we're looking for interactive tags. That could be a spinner like the ones in the inspiration photo, or a slide, wobbler or even a shaker tag like mine.
I added stripes of colorful distress ink to a panel of white card stock using the Pretty Pink Posh Wide Stripes Stencil. Next I cut the Stitched Banner Duo 2 from the inked panel. I wanted to keep some similar elements to inspiration so I used the same shape tag - added a circle window element, and a cute tropical bird in lieu of the reindeer on the sample. 
I sure hope you'll join us! This is a great way to add some neat tags to your collection and challenge your designing skills by taking it up a notch! If you need more inspiration you can find samples from the team here at Tag You're It!
