Tag It Tuesday- "Hello Sunshine"

Hello! It's Tag It Tuesday at MyCreativeTime. Today we make tags, or in my case, add tags to a card. ;) We also had the above photo and color palette to use as inspiration. I LOVE yellow and grays! Here is my card...
I started by stamping the Sripey Background with Lemon Chiffon ink from SimonSaysStamp. I'm so glad I found that color! Such a great soft yellow...AND it's the same formula ink as my beloved Hero Arts Shadow Inks. So, I highly recommend those inks too. :) I stamped the Cartoon Cloud Background with Soft Granite HA shadow ink on the Stitched Round Tab, Arrow, and Tag Dies. I also cut another one out of vellum. I cut the "hello" from the Speech Bubble Sentiments set 4 times and glued them together to give it a little umph. 
I made the sun with the Build A Banner set. I colored it with the Lemon Chiffon ink and added clear wink of stella glitter pen for sparkle. I stamped "sunshine" using the Alpha Pack with Soft Granite ink on the banner from the Vintage Labels Dies. I added glossy accents to the hello...a few sequins and it's done. :)

p.s. There are also sneaks here...will be available next Friday the 26th. :)

Birthday card and a FLASH SALE! :)

Hello! I made this card today with the new Smile Eagle set from PeachyKeenStamps. I paper pieced him and gave him a face from the new Variety Faces 1 1/8 set. The balloon is from the new September 2014 set from PeachyKeenStamps
I used the Fun Stitched Edge dies from MyCreativeTime for the hill, and the Cartoon Cloud Dies. I stamped and white heat embossed the greeting from the Smile Eagle set on the hill. Oh, and the eagle is on a wobble so he wiggles. :)

There really is no one quite like you!

Hiya! I hope you're having a happy Saturday. :) For my card today I used the new Smile Eagle set from PeachyKeenStamps. I paper pieced the sweet eagle and gave her a face from the Variety Faces 1 1/8 set
I tramped her up a bit with pink glittery eyeshadow and pink glitter talon polish. ;) The greeting is also from the new Smile Eagle set. BTW...both sets used on this card are on sale. :) 

I was thinking of this quote while I made this...

Hello! It's Made In Minutes Monday at MyCreativeTime. Today we make projects that are easy/quick. For my card, I used the solid image stamp from the Love To Learn set. I stamped it in pale tomato, orange soda, butter bar, green hills, tide pool, and passion flower Hero Arts shadow inks. 
I stamped the greeting from the You Are Fabulous set in Ranger archival jet black ink. To finish, I added a few gems. :)

It's Your Birthday!

Hello! Today I played with some of the new release from PeachyKeenStamps. I stamped and paper pieced the balloons from the new September 2014 set from PeachyKeenStamps. The greeting is also from the September 2014 set. 
I paper pieced the octopus from the June 2013 set by PeachyKeenStamps. I ♥ that octopus so much! Her cutie face is from the brand new Variety Faces 1 1/8 set from PeachyKeenStamps. So cute! :)
