The Alley Way Stamps August Release Blog Hop

Hi crafty friends! Can you believe it's already the last day of July? Crazy! I feel like this year has just flown by and I can't believe summer is almost over. But summer is not over yet and we're celebrating The Alley Way Stamps August release with a blog hop!

Today I made a card showcasing the fun new mini set "Unique Peek" which coordinates perfectly with "Penguins on Parade."

I created the canvas using a stitched square die and colored the flower image using Copic Markers. I cut two thin strips of white cardstock and colored them with brown Copic Markers to make the legs of the easel. I colored the cute puppy using Copic Markers and used a Copic multiliner pen to draw his mouth.

This was such a cute and simple card to make. I hope my card gave you some fun ideas. Thanks again for stopping by and don't forget to hop along with us for a chance to win all THREE new sets!

Creative Chick 10th Blogiversary Celebration

Hi again! This is my second post of the day. For The Alley Ways Stamps August Sneak Peek post, click here.

Hi crafty friends! Today I'm so excited to be celebrating Jenn Shurkus' 10th Blogiversary Celebration! Jenn is so incredibly talented and she has been such an inspiration in the card making community.

We are celebrating Jenn's amazing work by picking one of her previous cards to CASE. And what kind of celebration would it be without a ton of awesome sponsors and prizes! Celebrate with us by CASE'ing one of Jenn's cards and linking your project to her site here. You will have until August 4th to participate and all winners will be announced August 7th at 8 a.m. EST!
For today's card, I decided to CASE this adorable card Jenn made. This is such a sweet card and I was inspired by her CAS design and pink color scheme. I also used the Mama Elephant "Bear Hugs" set.

I colored the cute bears with Copic Markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I used the stitched cloud die from the "Landscape Trio" die set to cut two layers of clouds. I white heat embossed the sentiment and colored the background using Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves distress inks. As a finishing touch, I added 4mm and 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I hope you were inspired by today's card and be sure to visit Jenn's blog to celebrate with us!



The Alley Way Stamps August Sneak Peek #1: Penguins on Parade

Hi crafty friends! Today is the first sneak peak of The Alley Way Stamps August release. Today we're showcasing the super fun new set "Penguins on Parade." This is such a fun and unique set and there's so many different way to mix and match the stamps to create different critters.

For today's card, I used the new set to create a cute chick. I colored the chick with Copic Markers and fussy-cut it out leaving a white border. I created a happy little scene which coordinated perfectly with the sentiment.
