Terrific Tuesday Chanllenge - Stand and Salute!

Good morning, all! Sorry this post is going up a little late today - we have had chaos going on in my house and I just didn't get to it last night! :)

This week's TTC cart is Stand and Salute - I don't use this cart nearly enough! It's got some really great cuts, hopefully this challenge will inspire you to take another look at Stand and Salute.

Here is my project....

I cut 2 of the top layers, one in red and one in blue. Then cut away everything but the "star field" on the blue. I use a small star punch and glued the stars going off the blue square, then cut off the overhanging parts. I used a stamp from SMS Yankee Doodle Dandy set and white embossing powder. It's a little off center on the blue card base but, darn, that ATG tape is unforgiving!! LOL

I hope that you will come and play along with us and link up your Stand and Salute project for a chance to win a BRAND NEW stamp set that won't be released until mid July! You'll be the 1st to own it! :)

Hope your day is SUB-LIME!

Just a quick post to share my newest card using SMS Good Eats set...

The base is from Sugar and Spice, I used the Fiskar's Upper Crest border punch for the waves and the sub is cut from Lettering Delights Seven Seas file. I embossed the top wave layer with Devine Swirls by Cuttlebug.

Off to see my niece's summer choir concert - sorry to post an run! LOL

Until next time!

Sneak Peek #4 - Thank a Soldier!

Another project using Scrappy Moms Stamps Yankee Doodle Dandy set today. I hope you like this simple card - with a big statement. :)

It was a VERY quick card to put together but I like how it turned out! The white base of the card is from Lacy Labels - can you tell I LOVE this cart? The tree is from Campin' Critters - the rabbit peeking out from behind the tree. I hid the contours of his hand on my Gypsy and then {heartlessly} cut him off the final cut. LOL I also cut 2 layers of the leaves, one a little smaller (which I popped up) to give a shadow effect. Of course, I HAD to add some red, white and blue bling for a little patriotic flair. LOL

I also stamped "Thank you for your Service and Sacrifice" inside and the kiddos and I are going to send the card to A Million Thanks for the troops. :)

I have one more card for you tomorrow to finish out the Sneak Peek Week (say that 5 times fast - LOL) - hope to see you then!

Sneak Peek #3 - Have You Hugged Your Hero Today?

Happy Monday!

I made this card for my Dad for Father's Day - which we celebrated today with a yummy lunch at Applebees! LOL :)

For this "simple" card I used a funky retro shape from Nifty Fifties, and Mickey/Minnie from Mickey and Friends. The heart and base are from Lacy Labels. The outside sentiment is from our new Scrappy Moms Stamps Yankee Doodle Dandy set and "Happy Fathers Day" is from SMS All in the Family.

I guess I have Mickey on the brain since coming back from Disneyland! I saw this cute cut and had to use it - LOL! :)

Thank you for stopping by today - I hope you had fun! {{{ HUGS }}}

Sneak Peek #2 - Little Sparkler


Yesterday was my little guy's 3rd birthday party (today is his actual birthday) so I didn't get a chance to get this project finished and posted - sorry for the delay.

Today I have a little something that I made for my kiddos to use on the 4th of July...

I bought a six-pack of sparklers and divided them so each kid will have two boxes. I used a solid strips of cardstock and a stip of patterned paper to create the wrappers. (I just eyeballed them so I don't have any measurments for you, sorry!) After I put them directly on the boxes the pattern on the box looked too busy so I slipped a matching piece of paper under the wrapper and added some stitching. :)

I used red/white gingham ribbon to tie a little bow and added 3 little stars I punched out on top of the knot. A little Stickles adds some bling! On the tag I used "Little Sparkler" from Scrappy Moms Stamps new Yankee Doodle Dandy set and "For my" from SMS All in the Family set.

Hope you enjoyed my little project for the day! Thank you for stopping by!

Two New Scrappy Moms Stamps Sets!

Happy Friday! Today we kick-off the release of 2 new Scrappy Moms Stamps sets. Yippee! :)

Here is my 1st project for the week....

The little avocados are cut from Preserves - I skipped the base layer on the little guy and cut off his leaf. The base is from Lacy Labels, I welded 2 together and cut a third one so that the top arch wasn't flat. The cream square is embossed 3/4 of the way up with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. Can you tell I'm addicted to this sheer, striped ribbon from Michaels? It's sparkly and I bought a roll in EVERY color - your sure to see it often. LOL I used PKS Everyday Character Faces and the sentiment is from our new SMS Good Eats set.

The second set we are releasing is Yankee Doodle Dandy...

Be sure to visit all of our FABULOUS DT - including our June Guest Designer, Sandra from 365 Days of Cricut - for more new projects ALL WEEK LONG! AND from today thru June 30th we are having FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS at Scrappy Moms Stamps! :)

Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend! {{{ HUGS }}}

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Sweet Treats!

Good day everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend - I did, I was in Disneyland!! :) Now I have "A Pirate's Life for Me" stuck in my head! LOL

This weeks TTC cart is Sweet Treats. I decided to us one of the more unusual cuts on this cart...

LOL - A Firecracker? On Sweet Treats? Yep! :)

The base of the card is the stamp cut from Sentimental - I welded 2 together. I used the Dots and Spots embossing folder by Cuttlebug, red Stickles, and some tiny gems to give it some pizzazz. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps Happily Ever After set. I hope you like my project for this week.

Please come by and play along with us!

Welcome to the Scrappy Moms Stamps 1st Birthday Blog Hop! Thank you so much for joining us! The SMS Design Team has new project that they have made using one of their favorite Scrappy Moms Stamps sets - AND we are joined by our June Guest Designer - Sandra from 365 Days of Cricut!! :)

Here is my project....

Isn't the little whale sooooo ADORABLE?! He is cut from the Pack Your Bags Cricut cartridge - I just love him! I cut a palm tree from Create A Critter and cut it down so it looks like it's peeking in from off the card - at least I hope that's what it looks like! LOL I free-handed the ocean floor and shore and embossed it with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. I used Japanese Scales embossing folder from the Asian bundle on the water. It doesn't show well in the photo but I think it's adorable! I was the 1st time I used this folder but I will DEFININTELY use it again soon. Of course, I had to add a little Stickles for sparkle on the water spout. The sentiment is from the SMS Sun Kissed stamp set - I really LOVE this set!! :)

Yay! It's Scrappy Moms Stamps 1st BIRTHDAY! :)

Thank you for joining me to help celebrate the 1st Birthday of Scrappy Moms Stamps! I can't believe it's been a year since Tammy and I started our little stamp company. Thank you to all our FABULOUS customers - without you it never would have happened!

We wanted to share some love with you all so week we are having giveaways on the Scrappy Moms Stamps blog and on Thursday, Jun 9th we will be having a blog hop! Our guest designer for the month of June will be joining us for the hop - Sandra from 365 Days of Cricut! :)

I made a brand new project for you today using one of my favorite SMS stamps set - The Charmed Life!

I used the Eskimo Kisses SVG file from Lettering Delights and for my igloo and thermometer. I use 2 shadow layers to create the shape-card base. I used lots of Stickles (Waterful and Icicle) to give it some frosty sparkle!

Still, I'm not crazy about how it turned out. Does this ever happen to you? Something seems soooo adorable in your head but just doesn't quite translate onto paper... LOL. :)

Anyhow, thank you again for stopping by! Be sure to visit the Scrappy Moms Stamps Blog and leave a comment for a chance to win a SMS Spring Fling stamp set!
