Family plays such a huge part in my life so when I saw this sentiment I wanted to create a cad simple enough to showcase this beautiful sentiment. The stamp is a Creative Clear Stamps Sentiment Single "Family of Strength". Check out all the amazing and thoughtful Sentiment Singles on the Creative Clear Stamps website. Cardstock is SU! and DCWV. Layered using my Nestibilities and finished with a group of felt flowers. So if you enjoyed this card take a minute to tell your family how much you love and appreciate them! Happy Thursday!

It's Riley and Company challenge time again and it is my turn to issue the challenge! The challenge is to use Riley and Company stamps to create some type of packaging. You could decorate a bag, make a bag topper, create a gift set or what I did was decorate a DVD tin to be used as a gift card holder. I used Tent Riley. I paper pieced the tent and colored Riley using Copic colors E30, E31, E33 and E35. I air brushed the grass with YG63 and the sky with B41. Cardstock is DCWV and PTI. I used my Oval Nestibilities to cut and layer Riley. Finally I added some jumbo brads for the last touch. We want you all to play along so be sure to post your packaging in the SCS gallery using the keyword Riley1110. You don't want to miss any of the inspiration, so be sure to check out the rest of the Design Teams samples. Leave them some love!!

Well not in the "click" sort of way but when it comes to stamping you will want to be "In Style"! Ok enough already, as I posted a while ago I am on the newest Promotional team for "In Style Stamps". They have the best selection and varitey of styles. Oh and if you love to color you will be in HEAVEN!! I have quite a bit to post so if you have any questions about any of the Copic colors or papers I used drop me a line! Plus check out the IN STYLE STAMPS website...

Good morning! I will be your Thursday girl for Creative Clear Stamps. I decided a Fathers Day card would be appropriate this week. One thing you will probably notice is that a pretty large percentage of my cards can be used for multiple occasions. Like today's card could be a Fathers Day card or a masculine Birthday card for the man or boy in your life.
For today's card I used "Hooked On Fishing". Cardstock is by SU!, PTI and Bazzil. Patterned paper is DCWV. I used a felt saddle stitch ribbon and a buckle for a masculine touch. I stamped the images on Kraft CS to create a background paper. Then I stamped a few more images in coordinating colors, cut using various Nestibilities and popped them up on foam tape for dimension. Visit the CCS Store for their entire product line. Have an AMAZING day!

For todays Tuesday challenge was created by Cathy Edgar. The challenge is a 1 2 3 challenge so for my card I used Bikini Sophie with 1 patterned paper, 2 cardstock colors(Tempting Turquoise & Garden Green) and 3 embelishments (Primas, brads & ribbon). I colored Ms. Sophie with Copics and layered her with my Nestibilities. Take a minute to check out the entire DT and don't forget to visit the Riley and Company store for all the amazing Riley and Sophie Moose stamps. You can get them in unmounted naked rubber, wood mouted and cling mounted, something for every style!

I added some brads and Prima Flowers and there you have it!
