Two Paper Divas

February flew by.  I hope you were able to see all the adorable stamps that  Two Paper Divas released this month.  There were sure some adorable sets.  My card today is a fun card using the "Cupcake Border" stamp set.  I stamped it around the page and then colored it with my copic markers. 
The sentiment was released last month from Two Paper Divas called "Can't Buy Happiness".  This card was fun to do.  It just makes me hungry for a cupcake.

See you next week for some new stamps for March.

Two Paper Divas

It's Friday and you know what that means.  Time for another fun card with the latest release from Two Paper Divas.  You have to smile when you see this adorable bird stamp called "A little birdie told me ".  I added some blue distress ink to the center of my white water color paper and then added a few water drops to it.  I then stamped the image on the paper so the legs and top fluff would show.  I colored the bird with my Zig Water Color Markers and cut it out and pop dotted it on over the stamped image.  I also added some clear 3D Crystal Lacquer over the eyes.
I just love this fun bird.  I know I will have lots of fun with this particular stamp.

Dueling Darlings - Dazzlers

Today's card was from a challenge in SCS with our Dueling Darlings.

The theme this month came from Paola and is "Being a Kid at heart".  The challenge was to create a kid card and somewhere on the card, we must display a heart.  I will be sending this to my niece. 

The image is "Kite Fhiona" by Fun and Whimsical Rubber Stamps. 

Lastly, we were asked to share what our favorite game was as a kid.  I really can't think of a game that was my favorite but one of my favorite things to do as a kid was to weave pot holders.  Boy did I love that kit.  Even as a kid I loved crafts.  Anything that I could make was fun for me.

You can see what my group came up with on this challenge.

Two Paper Divas

I pulled out my zig markers for my card for Two Paper Divas this month.  I found an older set of Two Paper Diva stamps that had this adorable basket and eggs on it.  I stamped it on water color paper and then colored it with my zig water color makers.  I just love the bright colors.  I am sad to say that the basket and eggs is an old Two Paper Diva set that has been retired.  The sentiment is new this month called "Wishing you a Happy Easter ".
I just love this bright and cheery card.  Another great month of releases for Two Paper Divas.

Unidentified Image #24

It is time for our unidentified image selected by Carol.  She chose this Old Couple Birthday from Art Impressions.  I guess the older I get, the more I identify with these images.  Always so much personality and fun.


I colored this card with my copic markers and then put it all together.   These are the other girls who are in this fun challenge.  Be sure and check out when they have done with their image.

Card Sketch Challenge

Today is a new idea for Two Paper Divas and I love it.  I love sketch challenges and seeing what everyone comes up with.  This is the sketch we were to use.


I decided to make a valentine card with mine using the stamp set "Sending Love".  It is an older set but I just love that mailbox.  The sentiment is from "Mason Jar Access #2".  The designer paper I used was from a 6 x 6 pad of EP  Blowing Kisses.  I have decided I love anything with black in it because it accents the other colors so well.
I hope you enjoyed my card.  Be sure and check out the other design team members to see what they have done with the sketch challenge.

Two Paper Divas

Can you believe it is February already?  Time sure is flying by.  It is hard to believe that we are thinking Easter already.  This month I have focused on some adorable easter cards using the new stamp sets from Two Paper Divas.
My first card I used White embossing powder for the image.  I used the stamp set "Hoppy Day ".  I also added so sparkle fluff to the tail.   Just goes to show you can make it Clean and Simple and still have an adorable card.
I used the same stamp set but stamp out the bunny and then cut him out.  I love the cloud paper and the grass paper to hide this adorable little bunny.  The sun was cut out with my cricut.

Be sure ad come back next week because I have pulled out my zig markers again and made another adorable Easter Card.
