I'm popping in with a quick update and a card today!

I used the Little Darling Archer set from Your Next Stamp on this card, Their Little Darling princesses are some of my favorite stamps ever, they make my disney loving heart go pitter-pat ♥

more happy fussy cutting!

On the home front, I'm all moved in and mostly unpacked! And I love love love my new house ♥

I'm waiting on two drawer units from the Container Store to be delivered and then I'll share some pictures of my new studio, other than that I don't have that much more to do to the house, I want to repaint my bedroom, the guest bathroom (it's bright yellow), and the playroom, but everything else in the house is already a nice light, neutral gray (yay!) We ordered a new dining room set - we had a little table that we bought when we moved in together almost 10 years ago and it was way too small for our new dining room. We also upgraded to a king size bed since we had the room for it, but the mattress won't be delivered for about two more weeks, so we're using a king size bed frame and box springs with our (16 year old!) queen size mattress on top, it's an interesting look :)
Anyways, hopefully I'll get back to stamping this week as we get a little more settled in, have a great day!

Your Next Stamp Challenge 69


I have my last guest project for Your Next Stamp today over at the Your Next Stamp Blog! I used the color challenge from Challenge 69 to make this sweet little princess card with the Little Darling Rapunzel stamp set. There's still a week to play along with the challenge!

I just finished three straight days of moving and i'm exhausted. *yawn* and also *ouch*
Now I get to start unpacking and figuring out where the heck everything will go! I can't wait to share pictures of the studio (i got new desks!!!!)
Have a great day!

Your Next Stamp Challenge 68


I'm popping in with my card for the Your Next Stamp Challenge 68, there's still a week left to play along! I went with the color challenge instead of the sketch and got out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color the Silly Monsters and Party Animals stamp sets. I might be physically incapable of using a monster stamp without adding googly eyes. #sorrynotsorry. monsters need googly eyes. ☺

I stamped everything on some Bristol watercolor paper and then colored it with my Zigs, I kept the colors to 5 different markers (I didn't have the perfect shade of pink so the lighter pink was done with two different shades) and lots of water. I fussy cut everything out and added some fun texture with a wink of stella shimmer pen, glossy accents, and of course, googly eyes. I also added some thread for the balloon strings. I used some distress ink to watercolor my background and added my my sentiment to the base before I glued everything down. It was time consuming with all of the painting and cutting but pretty simple overall.

Go check out some more inspiration at the Your Next Stamp Blog and play along in the challenge!
