Two Paper Divas Thursday!

Hello! Welcome to another week with Two Paper Divas.

This week, I was getting creative with my stamps. Can you guess which sets created this beauty?


If you guessed right, then you’ll know that the hearts are created with Wanna Hang Out and the sentiment is from I Chews You.

One of the fun things about clear stamps is their bendability. I took the clothesline from Wanna Hang Out and stuck it to my clear block in the shape of half a heart…stamped it, then re-positioned it for the other half and stamped again. Aren’t they cute?

For the sentiment, I used both “May Your Day Burst with Love!” and “I Chews You!”. I used my marker to ink up only the words I wanted then then stamped them together.

Two Paper Divas releases new products on the 5th ond 6th of the month, so I’ll have some new products for you next week.


Crafty Time Challenges with Aurora Wings

We’re back with another great challenge at Crafty Time Challenges! I’m actually here a bit late, since I had a few other challenge posts to do the last couple of days. However, the Crafty Time challenge will always be posted on the site as scheduled (unless I somehow mess up the post).

This month our challenge theme is:

You don’t need to have all three, but we do want to see at least one! Have fun with your embellishments.

Our sponsor this month is Aurora Wings. They have a diverse selection of images, so stop by and check them out.

What do I have for you this month? I decided to use the fun and adorable image, Hula Kitty for my card. I colored her up and then attempted to find papers that worked with my colored image. Hmmm…but, I love how this green, pink and orange mix turned out. And, I left the brads out, but got both the bow and buttons into my creation.

Thanks for stopping by! Take a spin through the rest of the projects on the Crafty Time Challenges team and see what they’ve done with the Aurora Wings images.

The Ink Spot Challenge – Non Traditional Valentine

Welcome back everyone! It’s another week of our Design Team Challenges over at The Ink Spot. Check out The Ink Spot to explore six fabulous stamp collections that will meet all your stamping needs.

This week, our Design Team Challenge is hosted by Joy. Joy asked us to make an non-traditional Valentine.

I found this great image and sentiment over on the Cornish Heritage Farms site, in their digital stamps collection. The image is called Digging Dog and the sentiment is “I Dig You!”. I think I might use this sentiment with one of my Riley stamps next.

There are seven other great members of The Ink Spot’s Design Team, so stop on by and check out their projects for this Design Team challenge. I think a few of us used the same sentiment, so check out the versatility of this great digital stamp!


TCCCB – Monochromatic

As we usher in another month, it’s time for another challenge at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!

Twice a month we roll out fantastic challenges for your to play along with and we work with great sponsors so you get to see art from a wide variety of talented artists.

Our challenge this fortnight is Monochromatic! Pick a color, any color. Stick with it.

The sponsor I got to work with this month is My Stitch Back in Twine. I had trouble picking just one great image to work with, but found this Dress image that I liked. And, here is my pretty in pink creation.

Come on and play in this great challenge! You can link up your entry over at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog from now through the 14st of the month. Come and check us out!

FTHS Progressive Image Challenge – Jan

Hey everyone! It’s getting close to the close of the month, which means I have to get my January image from From the Heart Stamps posted. The adorable Cozy Kittens is the image for the month. Super cute!

The card was made with one of the January sketches from Viva la Verve. Unfortunately, I didn’t get it linked up in time, but I love to use their sketches so that’s okay.

Can’t wait to find out what next month’s image is!!

Two Paper Divas Thursday!

Hello! My post is finished just in time for this weeks’ Two Paper Divas post.

A couple weekends ago, my daughter and I started working on a Valentine’s banner. She didn’t finish hers (she’s four, she distracts easily), but I came up with this beauty.

On the left hand side of the banner I’ve used I Chews You, which is an absolutely adorable set. You’ll see this bubblegum machine in a few upcoming project because it’s just too cute!

And, on the right hand side of the banner I’ve used Summer Chillin’.

It was fun putting this together! I might take some time out to make a few more banners. Maybe Easter?? Stay tuned!

See you next week with something new from Two Paper Divas!


Mystery Image Swap – Jan 2016

You guessed it, I’ve signed up for another year of Mystery Image swapping. I love this group, we have so much fun! A few people from last year did choose to leave us (boo hoo) for various reasons, but we have two new faces in the mix, so that’s great too.

Imke usually kicks us off, so she has sent us this image from Crafter’s Companion called Butterfly Silk. I loved working with this image, but I had a bit of a challenge because I wanted to pair it with some great papers and then when I went to cut down the image, I found it was so big that it was hard to highlight the papers with it! In the end, I found this fabulous background paper and used some pop of color to achieve the effect I was after. Very happy with this.

Now, I’m off to check where I’m sending my card this month. See you next month for the next Mystery Image selection.
