Let the good times roll

It's wednesday...... yup, mid week, we're half way there!  So pour some coffee and take a look at all of the awesome Wonderful Wednesday projects that the DT has created.  Today I'm using the super cute stamp set "Let the Good Times Roll."  It was retired for a while, but Kimmie was able to get a few sets remade in Red Rubber!!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!! So, if you don't already own this set, roll on over to the KKS site and scoop one up before they are gone again!!!!

I had such a blast coloring this image, it really was fun. I used some papers from Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) that I thought really went with the image, and I cut some clouds out of various colors of white yardstick on my Cricut machine to make the clouds.  FUN!

Hope you are inspired to participate in our Wonderful Wednesday challenge as well!  As always, it's "anything goes!" So grab the closest stamp, and get to creating! I can't wait to see what you make! Tootles!

Happy Fall Y'all

Ok, so it's hop day.  By now you are in awe of all the serious cuteness that has happened this week, and perhaps you have already scooped some of them up to be your very own.  I'm here to show you one last project for the week so make sure you don't miss out on anything! he he he

I decided to use Happy Fall Y'all again to make another super "fall" feeling card!  Here she is:
This paper is from Echo Park and I thought it would just be perfect for a fall themed card.  I used a couple of black and gray circles to accent the image and colored her in orange and yellow for the season.  I also used these felt pumpkins from Martha Stewart Crafts to add a little fun to the card as well. I used twine on the sentiment to make it look like she was holding a sign! Super fun.

I hope you all have had a fun week with us, don't forget to hop around the blogs today and check out all of the Fall goodness that the DT and GDT members have created for you! Tootles!

Here's my creation with these little cuties:
and a closeup:
I simply took a craft tag and tied some twine on it, then I stamped and colored my image and fussy cut it out...I adhered it to the tag and did the same with the sentiment, done and done! Super quick and super simple, and SUPER cute!

Ermergersh I love this set!  Ok, yeah seriously, I adore these sweet little trolls!  How stinking cute are they?!?!?!?!? This is day 2 of the Release at KKS and I think this is the cutest set of stamps ever!!!! Here's the set: (it's called Troll Trouble)

...and here's my card:
To make this card I cut a bunch of circles using a Gina Marie die called Stitched Circles and then I used some Doodlebug paper and satin ribbon.  I also used about 5000 pop dots to add a bunch of dimension to this card.  Super fun and so bright! EEEEKKKK! Love them!

Ok, so once you get over how cute they are, hop around to all of the DT's and GDT's blogs and leave some love! One lucky comment will win a big ol prize on release day! Woot Woot!  Tootles!

Who's ready for a release?

Oh yeah, it's release week baby!  Fall is in the air (well not really, not in Idaho at least, it's hotter than heck and totally still summer) and it's my favorite season.  I love fall because I get to enjoy the cool mornings and the warm afternoons, I get to drink coffee all day (yeah I know, I do that anyways, hush) and I have a birthday in the fall, and i get to start getting ready for Christmas!  All good things!

This release has all the good stuff about fall and you'll see over the next few days that it's all just too cute!  Here's the very first set... ready?????

Aptly named, this set is called "Happy Fall Y'all" and features a sweet little girl and all of her favorite fall things.

To make this card I started with some distress inks and a dampened sponge. I swirled the sponge on the paper after dabbing it in the ink to make that gradient background.  After letting it dry I used the pumpkin stamp from the set and stamped it all over to make the background.  I used the same sponge to add a little bit of ink to the wooden leaves as well. then I distressed the edges of the paper and glued them all in place. It was quite simple and lots of fun to make. 

Well, that's it for day one, I hope that you love this set, I'll catch ya back here tomorrow for some more release week goodness!! Don't forget to hop around to all the the DT and GDT blogs all week because one lucky commenter will receive a sweet prize at the release party on Facebook. Tootles!
