Just Pea-cause card-CDD daily

Hi fellow stampers..
It's me again and I'm here today to share a fun shaker card I created as my design team project for Craftin Desert Divas, using some of the awesomely cute stamp sets and versatile dies..
Here is what I created

Oh gosh... I absolutely loved coloring that cute little pea buddy :) 

I cut the flower svg files with my cameo and then stamped my images onto the die cut.
colored everything with Copic markers

The pea buddy's and leaves copic colors I used are:  G40, G43, G82 and G64

For the centers of the flowers, I used my Silver Star roller pen.. Its so pretty with the little bit of sparkle.. 

The copic colors I used to color my flowers are: R20, Y21, RV95

Here are the stamp sets I used to create my card:


for the dies and sequins:

My Little Monsters layout-pppr daily

It's time for my Tuesday daily reveal for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.

I decided to scrap an old photo of my three little monsters, when they were little monsters.. Now they are all grown up and how fast the time flies..

here is the layout I created:
When I seen this cute monster svg file, I knew exactly what I wanted to create with them..

How about some close ups:

added some halo's to my monsters, cause my kids were still little angels..LOL

I used the eye from the pink monster to add a O in my Monsters title..

Here are the cutting files I used to create my layout:

Sending Hugs card-CDD daily

Hi fellow stampers..
I'm here today to share a card I created using the new Wishful Thoughts and Flowers in Bloom stamp sets from the Craftin Desert Divas online store

Here is what I created:

I absolutely love the flowers in the Flowers in Bloom stamp set..
I spent a nice Sunday afternoon stamping, coloring and fussy cutting my flowers and leaves.. :)

I cut a piece of white cardstock and punched the edges to make a tag, stamped the sentiment from the Wishful Thoughts stamp set and the butterflies from the Koala-fied stamp set,  using Sepia Archival Ink and then used my Glitter pen to add some touches of detail..

I layered my flowers by gluing them together and for final added detail, I dabbed some glossy accents in the middle and added some tan colored micro beads..

Here are the stamp sets I used to created my card:

You can buy them here:

April Inspiration blog hop-PPPR

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons April Inspiration blog hop..
You should of arrived here from Michelle's blog, but if you just stopped by and want to join the fun, just click HERE and you will be redirected to the beginning of the hop.

* We're going to try something a little different this month. Instead of having a blog hop and challenge theme, we are simply going to try to inspire you to get crafty with Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files.  All of us Design Team members have created some sweet projects to share with you, and there's a fun little freebie for you as well. Plus, there's a prize up for grabs, and who doesn't love prizes? So, grab your coffee, settle in, and hop along with us for some PPPR inspiration.

I decided to create a scrapbook layout of myself.. Which I haven't done in a very long time.. I wanted to add some of the things that are my favorite..   

Here is what I created:

This layout pretty much says who I am...LOL  When I am crafting, these are things I surround myself with and I always have a cup coffee close by :)

How about some close ups and some details:

I always ink the edges of my papers and die cuts, so I had to add an ink pad and the stamp could look like a ink dabber of sorts..

These books are some of my all time favorite cutting files from the PPPR store, I thought I could use them to represent photo albums..

I used one of the labels to create a fun saying for my layout.. I also rolled up some scrap pieces of paper to represent scrapbook paper and added a fun pair of scissors to look like its cutting into my photo :) 

Found this fun font in the Silhouette online store and decided it was perfect to use on my layout..

Now for blog hop information:

The blog candy for this hop is a $15 GC to the PPPR store. Anyone who comments will be entered to win the GC. A random winner will be chosen for the prize sometime during the week after the hop
and don't forget to pick up the Blog Hop freebie on Saturday and Sunday of the hop, only...then it will be available in the store.
