3rd Project Introducing Scrappy Moms Stamps New January Release

Happy Hump Day/Wednesday Crafters,  

I can't believe it's almost the end of January.  Boy this month flew by and it's been an exciting one being my first month on the wonderful creative Scappy Moms Stamps Design Team.  

Today I'm pleased to share with you a third project I made for the Scrappy Mom's January fun release.   

Once again I used some stamps from the fun new "You are my Everything 2!" stamp set.    

Here is my card.

I've been having fun combining Scrappy Moms Stamps with KaDoodle Bug Designs Files.  So to showcase the "You're the...Bubbles to my Bath" sentiment I used the dog getting a bath from KaDoodle Bug Designs Pampered Pooch file.

Here is a picture of the "You're my Everything 2!" stamp set so you can see all the other fun sentiments included in this set.

Can't forget about the other fabulous stamp set Scrappy Moms Stamps released this month "For the Birds!".  Here is a picture of that set so you can see all the fun sentiments included in this set.

2nd Project introducing Scrappy Moms Stamps New January Stamp Release

Happy Monday Crafters,

Today, I'm sharing with you a second project I made for the Scrappy Mom's January fun release.   For this card I used the fun new "You are my Everything 2!" stamp set.

I love margaritas so when I saw the "Salt to my Margarita" I had to make a card with this sentiment.  

A few close up pictures.

For the image I used the Margarita Glass Chihuahua from KaDoodle Bug Designs Aye Chihuahua file.  I used the jpg and did a print and cut using my Silhouette Cameo.  I then accented it with some stickles and a gel pin for the limes, glossy accents on the margarita glass, and chunky glitter on the rim of the glass as salt.   For the card base I used an easel card I purchased from the Silhouette store.

I wanted to add a salt shaker along side my margarita glass but didn't have one in my SVG library so I created one by taking a salt shaker image and traced it in my Silhouette software and changed it a bit. I used chunky glitter for the salt on the inside.  Wish I would have put it on white paper then added it to the salt shaker because I think it would've looked more like salt but I think it turned out pretty good despite that little mix up.  I used the packaging that Scrappy Mom Stamps stamp sets come in to cut out the main part of the salt shaker to put over the chunky glitter to make it look like glass which is hard to see in the photos. 

Please check back later this week for another project I'll be sharing utilizing a stamp from one of these fun new stamp sets.   

In addition please check out my fellow Scrappy Moms Stamps design team sister's blogs as well as our guest designer Sarah from Sarah's Stamping and Stuff though out the week to see what they are creating.  Links to their blogs can be found on my left side bar.

Scrappy Moms Stamps New Stamp Release

Happy Friday Crafters,

This is my first release as Scrappy Moms Stamps Design Team member and I thrilled to help introduce the two new extraordinary stamp sets that are being released today.  

The two new sets are:

"For the Birds!" and "You are my Everything 2!".  

 For my first card in the release I chose to use a sentiment from 
"For the Birds!" stamp set. 

Here is my finished card:

When I saw the sentiment "Hope your day soars with Happiness" 
several images and ideas went through my mind.   
I settled on the hot air balloon idea because there are several mornings as I'm driving to work I enjoy seeing hot air balloons soaring in the sky.   
I decided to go out of my comfort zone and used multiple pattern papers instead of just one or none at all and was pleased how it turned out.  
I think I'll use it for a birthday card.  
I hope you enjoyed my first card utilizing one of the sentiments from one of the two stamps sets from the Scrappy Moms Stamps January Stamp Release. 

Please make sure to check out what fabulous projects
