Thank You For Owl You Do

This little card is designed using one of my favorite things to do, to use scraps out of my scrap bin.  The fun part for me is sitting in the floor with my giant sized bin and pick out papers that I think go together. Love that!
Another favorite of mine is using the clear stamps from The Cutting Cafe' Shop.  Regina has recently added stamps to her store that are just adorable, please go check them out for yourself HERE.
This little owl and the greeting is from a set called From Owl of Us and it is so versatile when it comes to card making.  I added google eyes to the owl for a little bit of extra fun. 
To create this 5 1/2" x 4 1/4 sized card, I used of course scrap papers, my Nesties, Regina's stamps and a few sequins.  I used my Copic markers to color the owl.
Since its a rainy day here today, I think I play in my craft room and see what else I can come up with.

Please visit my Etsy shop HERE if you need a one of a kind handmade card too.  FREE SHIPPING!

Thanks for looking!  Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Teacher Appreciation Thank You Card

Its almost time for teacher appreciation week. Do you have some fun goodies for your kiddo's teachers?  I have some sweet cards and bookmarks in my Etsy shop if you need them!
Who doesn't love an apple for a teacher card?  I found the idea for this little card while searching Pinterest.  I had to create my own.  See the original card HERE.  Thank you Debby!
I used my Cricut Expression machine to cut out the word teacher using Doodletype and Locker Talk for the apple.  The circle is cut using my Nesties and then I used my sweet friend Regina's stamp set called From Owl of Us to stamp the thank yous all the way around the circle.  The stamps are clear acrylic so I just bent the stamp to stamp in a circle.  Loves it! Go look at all the lovely stamps Regina has  HERE!
This cute little card is available in my Etsy store along with lots more if you're looking for handmade cards for family or friends.....or teachers!  This card is a standard sized card measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.


Thanks for looking!  Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Another Punny Birthday Card

This sweet little card is exactly why my blog is named Scrappin' with DeeDee.  I love to use paper scraps to create my cards, its my favorite!
I just sit in the floor, pull out my scrap bin (its huge) and I start laying papers out that go well together.  Most times I'll gather enough scraps for two or three cards and then I start creating my cards.  Sometimes I change my mind.....a lot! LOL!
I used a Paper Smooches stamp from Birthday Buddies to make this card.  I colored the images with my Copics and then added some glitter with my Wink of Stella brush. Love that brush!
This punny little card is available in my Etsy store along with lots more if you're looking for birthday cards for family or friends.

Sweet, Bright and Happy Birthday Cards

I was looking at the inventory in my Etsy shop the other day and noticed that I needed to stock up on my birthday card selection.  I went and grabbed several of my birthday stamp sets from my collection and just so happens, I started out with Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies stamp set.  Keep reading to find out why that is so AWESOME!
I love these punny little stamps.  They are all so adorable!
This cute little bird is my favorite out of all of them though!  I always use my Copic markers to color the stamps and of course that's always lots of fun too!  I used my Nesties to cut out the ovals.  There is a layer of foam tape between the white and pink oval for dimension.
This card is a standard sized card measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  I used a distressing method on the edges of this card that I havent used in ages.  I actually used a fingernail file to distress it all the way around. See how it gives a white border on the very outer edge?
Next up is this cute little pup.  I love how he had a patch around his eye.  He says, "Happy Bark Day!"  This card is also a standard sized card measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.
Again I colored him with my Copics and then used my Nesties to cut out the ovals.
This card is way simpler than the birdie card, but I think sometimes simple is better.  They look so crisp and clean when they are simplified.

Paper Smooches, Kim Hughes to be more specific, that's who designs these cute stamps I used to make these two cute cards.

Turns out after I had posted the puppy card to my IG feed I noticed that Paper Smooches was having a contest where you can win $50 credit to the PS store or be a featured designer! How cool is that?  It never hurts to try, so here I am, throwing my hat in the ring.  Wish me luck!
