A quick post to share my Butterfly Beauty card I'm sending to someone special. I received a couple of Spellbinder dies for Christmas and have been dying to try them out. Here is the Butterfly Magic Expandable die as the background. I also received Twisted Metal Tags and Accents which coordinates with Unity's Twisted Metal Tags & Accents stamp set and used both items here. The word "beauty" is from Unity's Butterfly Beauty stamp set. I used Stickles on the outlining dots around "beauty" to separate the Lavender Lace layers and Crystle Gemstones from Hero Arts for the corners. A fairly easy card, but one that I hope is elegant in it's simplicity.
Stamps: Unity; Ink: Lavender Lace (sponging) & Elegant Eggplant (SU!); Paper: Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black (SU!); Accessories: Spellbinder Dies, Stickles, Crystle Gemstones, Cuttlebug, Xyron.

Just finished making a card for Troy to take to a friend's birthday party tomorrow, (well, actually later this morning!) She is a sweet neighbor and her dog is our dog's best friend! So a puppy card was a no-brainer!
I used the puppy from SNSS's Woof You, the Wood background is a free digi from GinaK, and the sentiment from SU! Colored the puppy with Copic markers and added some clear glitter pen on the bandana and eyes. Stamped sentiment on some adhesive backed ribbon in my stash and layered it on one of the SU pinks. Hopefully this will be a good card for a 10 y/o girl!
Have a great summer!

Yes, I realize Valentine's Day is past. I am slowly getting back into crafting so I thought I'd share my card for my DH.
I just adore butterflies, so when I came across God's Love stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) I just had to have it. :) It has a matching 2 step butterfly stamp set and a background stamp as well as a butterfly die. Yep, had to have it all! ;)
Here is his card.
The butterfly and "Love" are popped up. Used Olive Vine Glimmer Mist for some sparkle. Used Green Apple and Siren Smooch on the butterfly and "Love". Not sure if he loved it, but my DS told me he thought it was great.
I'm going to try to get back into the swing of things and post more. Thanks for following along!
Stamps: God's Love & 2-Step Butterflies (ODBD), Ink: Old Olive, Certainly Celery (SU); Paper: White, Old Olive, Ruby Red (SU); Accessories: Glimmer Mist, Smooch, Butterfly Die (ODBD), Cuttlebug.

Today we have having a MONSTER of a Hop!!! Who doesn't love an ugly cute little monster?!
The Paper Makeup Artists, some of the Digi Artists and some of PMS's bestest fans (that would be ME) are joining together to bring you fun monster cards using Paper Makeup Stamps!
And in honor of this hop, all monsters on the site will be on sale for 1 week using the voucher code MONSTERHOP, of 15% off!
So settle down, grab your beverage of choice and prepare to be scared, um, we mean, inspired!
It has been one of THOSE weeks for me and I am running a little behind. I finally finished my Me and Pops card amid the handyman's visit and getting my little guy off to school. You now have my full attention. :)
And speaking of my Little Guy, I love my PMS monsters! What a perfect way to make those difficult masculine cards!
My scanner washed out some of the color, especially around the sentiment, which reads "you mean the world to me". The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark and clear embossed. Then I simply sponged Summer Sky (Memento) to allow the sentiment to pop out and then sponged Bahama Blue around the edge. I popped the sentiment up on foam.
I stamped the image a second time and colored in Pop's head and the child monster, then cut out just the colored portion and popped that up as well, placing the horn slightly over the sentiment. The green corners are some photo corners from my stash.
I love this image, because it can be used for both of my monsters, (Hubby and son)! I'm going to give this card to my son to write something to his Daddy and give it to him.
Since we moved this summer, there hasn't been any crafting done so this feels so good to get back into the swing of things. Thanks Katie for allowing me to participate!
Stamps: Me and Pops, sentiment (PMS); Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Summer Sky & Bahama Blue; Stampin Up: Brocade Blue; VersaMark, various Copic markers; Paper: Brocade Blue (Stampin Up) and Solar White (Neenah); Accessories: Nestabilities: Labels 8, photo corners (Heidi Swapp).

It's been ages since I have posted anything. Sorry about that. I've created a bit, but always seemed to forget to take a picture. Hubby is now home from his deployment and we are getting ready to move in a little over a month. So I'm still not doing much creating, but I don't mind since I have him home again. :)
Tomorrow is our 12th wedding anniversary. Hard to believe, where has the time flown?? We are celebrating tonight. Hope the weather improves so I don't freeze in my new dress! :)
I just love PMS stamps! I took the Under the Mistletoe Fairies and masked the mistletoe and stamped just the fairies kissing. One of the things I love about rubber stamps is my ability to control the image. I stamped in Memento Black and colored with Copic markers. The sparkle is atyou Spica pens.
I used SU Wild Wasabi for the base and Lavender. The patterned paper is by DCWV Old World Stack. Used Nestabilities for the scallop die cuts as well as the fancy tag. Paper Studios gemstones to add some bling to the tag, which I popped up just a bit.
Hoping this is elegant enough, not to feminine for DH. He likes greens, I love purples so I thought this was a good combination.
Have a wonderful week-end!
