Today I'm showing you some cards I made using new digi stamps from Inkegrity. This new stamp company was created by my very talented friend Joni Wilson over at "A Sticky Situation". She just opend a new Etsy store Inktegrity selling her uber sweet digital images. Joni's stamps capture the sweetest of life's moments. I love her perspective in life as it reflects in her images! Check it out for yourself.

I think this image is soooo sweet with the little one hanging onto dad while he holds the diaper bag! What more can I say, it's simply precious!

My list of things to do:

  • Well goodmorning everyone!! What a busy week I'll be having.
  • I have sneak peeks going on all week at

Accordian Baby Girl Album

Warning today's post contains a lot of photos. Today I want to show you a baby girl album I made for a Secret Sister swap I'm at at SCS. My SS has a baby girl and hasn't found the time to start an album so I thought I'd make her an accordian travel album. The whole 5 page album fits inside a DVD. And I decorated the cover. I hope she likes it.

Have you noticed some of the baby stamps and sentiments are from the new stamp set "Oh Baby" by The Greeting Farm!

ShortCuts Thursday and The Cutting Cafe

It's Thursday already and I get to break out the ShortCuts craft I've been hiding!! LOL.
It's another day of ShortCuts and The Cutting Cafe. Did you know The Cutting Cafe have to coolest template ever! It's for making a box to hold the beautiful cards you've been making. I LOVE these boxes!! They even come as a cutting file how cool is that?? And combined with ShortCuts clear sheet I've made a window box. I'll be posting a tutorial next thursday on how I made this box.
I almost forgot I made another item using ShortCuts Gift Card Holder Folder (black) and The Cutting Cafe's Melon Greetings Digital Stamps. I re-sized the melone to make it fit my oval nestie! Then I coloured it and blinged it up with some Shimmerz.

I cut all the Designer Paper smaller then the GCHF so that the black would act as a matt. I think the black makes this project really POP! I think this is my first project that I didn't use layers! (well except the oval).

Oh Baby vintage cards

Today's cards are made from the newly released stamp set "OH Baby" from The Greeting Farm. I had so much fun with this set I had to force myself to stop making things with it! The baby images are just adorable in this set.

Here are the cards for today (this was my attempt at "Vintage" baby cards).

Koi Valentine

So I have to be honest, the way the Koi turned out totally surprised me!! I was happy that the colours blended well and then thought I would try to use the blender pen to make scales. And what do you know they look cool! Hahaha I'm lov'n the blender pen.

All you do is colour and shade your image.
Allow it to dry.
Take your blender pen and dab it on the image.
The blender markers sort of suck the colour out as it dries.

Teapot Cutting File

OK so I couldn't wait to show you this card!! I really wanted to make it look vingtage. The Teapot is a new cutting file from Whimsie Doodles. It comes as an SVG and JPEG file. I had to hand cut it cause I don't have a fancy Cricut DS to cut it out with! LOL. Hubby mentioned something about it might be a good investment!! Wooo hoooo I'm keeping my fingers crossed just incase.

Bombshell Paradise

I haven't posted a Bombshell card in a while so I stayed up till mid night until I made one. This card is for the Bombshell challenge "Summer Theme" over at Paper Craft Planet. I thought this Bombshell girl from "Cherry Bomb" was perfect for a bikini clad girl on the beach. Bombshell Stamps also have new line featuring Hula girls, vintage cars, pinstripes and animal prints. Check them out!

ShortCuts and the Cutting Cafe

Well I almost forgot to post today!! Luckly I didn't because today is Thursday and that means it's ShortCuts day! ShortCuts has teamed up with the Cutting Cafe this week and next. Which means all the ShortCuts DT will have some amazing things to show you. Check them out!

This first card was made using ShortCuts Frosted sheets. They're perfect for adding a soft touch to your card and allowing for a semi-transparent look of the inside. And I used Fruit Greetings Digital stamps from the Cutting Cafe! These images are SWEET! and they even come with sentiments! I love that! I cut some pattern paper and covered my cherries just so they would match the inside of the card.

This next card is from the super fabulous totally SWEET rocking card shapes from The Cutting Cafe!
I couldn't resist putting the cupcake on a ShortCuts frosted card front. The reciever of this card will think they are getting a rectangle "typical" thank you card and out pops a cupcake! The frosted front keeps the card light and airy and doesn't distract from the cupcake. While the stitching helps frame everything.
I love shaped cards and this cupcake shape Rocks!! Check out the other shaped cards you can get at the Cutting Cafe.

Koi Morning

Well I've been making cards all weekend and I can only show you one! Sorry. The rest have to wait for Thursday for my ShortCuts cards and Mon the 15th for The Greeting Farm new releases. In the meantime I can show you a card I made using Whimsie Doodles "Fintastic Koi" digital stamp.

I think it fits for a Monday card. The colours are sort of muted blues and greens. Not a bright card for starting out a week but still a card. Just like monday, not an exciting day but still a day!
I'm just really tired this morning and want to complain about being up!! LOL.

a Cute Card for ShortCuts

Yeah it's Friday!!! And today I have a special card for you. ShortCuts was at it again and they teamed up with Cute Card Thursday. The challenge Cute Card Thursday was to make a card using punches and of course a ShortCuts product. I wanted to make a tall card for this so I used a ShortCuts full clear sheet to cut the card size I was looking for.
Here's my card for this challenge Wishing you Sunshine!

Tombstone Treat box

OK I know it's not Halloween, not even close!! But I love halloween and any excuse to make something for it is good for me. Although we are only about 4 months away!! LOL sorry.

I want to tell you a little about this treat box. First I have a stamp set from Bombshell Stamps called "Cherry Bomb" it has a cute stamp of a women sitting down and it also has this big devil face. He just screams halloween to me. He's so bad. Secondly I stamped him on grey cardstock with black ink then I dragged my Prisma colouring pencils out and coloured him in. I used red and white for his face, and green for his eyes. I like colouring this guy, he always looks cool!
The tombstone is a template I found It's 1 of 3 you'll find there and it's really fantastic!

Make a Wish

I wanted to make a birthday stamp with the turtle holding something other than a gift box so I came up with a giant candle. That way you can celebrate anything! The sentiment is also included with this digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles.

Can can also get a free Whimsie Doodles stamp by going here. It's basically the same image only without freckles and she's holding a rose.
