"Keep Calm and Read On" - Scrappy Moms Stamps Guest Designer Post

I am back today with another project using the newly released stamp sets from Scrappy Moms Stamps.  This time I used the "Catch the Reading Bug" stamp set.  This set was perfect for a project life scrapbook page I wanted to do of my daughter's 5th grade reading competition.  

Here are some closeups of the cards.  The stamps worked so perfectly for this layout!!

Isn't that flair button fabulous??  It is from 3 Girl JAM.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Here's a peek at the 2 newly released Scrappy Moms Stamps sets.

PPPR "Baby Shower" Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Baby Shower" blog hop.  The PPPR design team will be showcasing baby themed projects utilizing a variety of Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' products.  You should have arrived at my blog from Nanne's blog.  If you missed the beginning of the hop, you will want to head to Lisa's blog so you don't miss any of the fun (or the blog candy too!!)

For my project I decided to make a card, specifically a "tall or long" card.  My card fits a business envelope.

I used a new file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons  - the "Baby Shower" Cutting Files to create the banner for my card.  I did add an extra shadow layer to make it "pop" more.  I layered it on some foam tape for added dimension as well as glued some yellow twine bows to it and a couple of adhesive backed pearls.  I took the letter cut outs from the word baby adhered them to the front of my envelope.  
Lisa is giving away a $15 gift certificate to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' store.  For a chance to win, you must be a follower of each blog and leave a comment on each blog.

Scrappy Moms Stamps New Release - Guest Designer

Happy Friday my fellow crafters!!  I am so excited to be guest designer this month for Scrappy Moms Stamps.  I am sure you are going to love their newest release as much as I have enjoyed getting to work with it.  So, without further ado, here is my first project to share with you using one of the newest stamp sets -

I made an easel card and used a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Stamps' "Fan-tastic" set.  My spiderman is from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Superheroes Trio" cutting files.  The background paper is from a superhero digital paper pack.  I created the spider webs using the spiderweb on Spiderman and enlarging it and then cutting it to fit the corners of my card.  I chose to use vinyl for the webs since the cuts were so delicate - I find it works better than paper.  I finished off my card with some enamel dots and white gel pen doodles.  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Springtime Hugs - 3 Girl JAM dt

Today for my 3 Girl JAM design team project I have an Easter card to share using some fabulous 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon.  I used the "sunflower" ribbon from the 3 Girl JAM "Harvest Bundle".

I am not sure where my digi is from as I have had it for awhile now.  I used my copics, spectrum noirs and Bic Mark Its to color it.  I am just starting my collection of alchohol markers.  I used Doodlebug "Springtime" collection for my background paper.  My sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps "Think Spring" set.

 Thanks for stopping by today!!  Don't forget about the current challenge going on at the 3 Girl JAM challenge blog - "All Things Spring".  For more info on the challenge and to link up your project please go here.

Kite and Clouds Shaker Card - PPPR dt

Happy Monday, today I want to share a shaker card I made.  I have been so inspired by my PPPR dt sister Brianna's shaker cards and wanted to give the shaker card phenomenon a try so here is what I came up with -

I used the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Kite and Clouds" cutting files set for my kite and cloud cut outs.  I created a shadow for my kite to make it a bit sturdier so that I could pop it up on foam dots.  I used the negative cut for the clouds.  I backed the designer paper with acetate and then used foam tape to pop that layer off the card base so that I could insert the sequins.  I love the way it turned out!!
