Busy weekend :)

Wooo! I finally got some crafty time in this weekend! It's been a while. I really enjoyed sitting down with my paper and stamps and stuff to make a few things I've been looking forward to. Going to try to cram them all into one post, so hang on to your shorts. :)

I've been meaning to catch up with my Deconstructed Sketches because I love them so much... here are a few... 156 and 147. I've got quite a few to do before I catch up! I used some Stampin' Up punches, some printed kraft cardstock I got at Joann's, and some paper from an Authentique 6x6 pad that I just love. 

I made use of my SU Petite Petals stamp and punch set for these ones. I had a package of "pockets" in my stash that I'be been hoarding for years and years. They were made by MakingMemories, and they are real fabric. Glad that I saved them for these cards. :)

I used an embossing folder and a digi stamp by Tidldy Inks. I colored her with my new Copics. I'm loving this color combo!

I HAVE been practicing with my copics. I colored these little guys in front of the TV the other night. The stamps are all from Lawn Fawn. Critters Ever After, and Love 'n Breakfast (The little cupcake is really a muffin, but don't tell! ) I also made use of some really tiny stars that I got in a beauty supply store. They're for manicures, but I thought that they would be fun for this too. 

Thanks for stopping by... hope that you have a safe and wonderful 4th of July!

Great Impressions Blog Hop

Well, Hello!

I'm welcoming visitors for the Operation Write Home / Great Impressions blog hop today! If you would like to start at the beginning of this little hop, you can do that over at Stars & Stamps! If you have come here from Mary Anne's Blog, you are right on track! Isn't it a beautiful day for a hop?

Today I am sharing a card made for OWH using one of our cute new Great Impressions fundraiser sets. I'll be following this OWH sketch #227:

In addition to the adorable Great Impressions - Home and Sentiments set, I used some cute paper by We R Memory Keepers, a Spellbinders die and some die cut / punched stars. I colored with Copic markers and used some Liquid Glass on the cute hearts and windows:

Here's a little close-up detail if you would like:

I really love this adorable little set and it is so nice for them to donate 20% back to OWH. Many thanks to Ms. Deone for letting me participate in this today and to Great Impressions for teaming up with us. These stamps have such wonderful detail and they stick so nicely to your acrylic blocks. The letters in the sentiment are a nice font that stamp out very crisply - and what great sentiments for OWH cards!  I really enjoyed working with them!

I love this little set so much that I used it this week for my card featuring "ribbon" for my local card-making group. So here is an example of the card using the other adorable sentiment:

 Now hop along over to Carolyn's place to see what she has in store for you!

Thanks for stopping by!
