Sassy Goblin Queen

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Monday, March 30, 2015 5 stamps of approval
Hi Crafty Friends!

Here's a card that I made between crafts at a crafty retreat that I went to this weekend.  

This is Goblin Queen from Simply B Stamps.  She was so much fun to color!

I loved this sentiment and thought it would be great to go with my sassy queen!

Challenges for this card:

The Pink Elephant - Anything Goes √
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes √
Southern Girls Challenge - Punches (corner punch on image)

My Favorite Things Birthday

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Monday, March 30, 2015 2 stamps of approval

I've never entered a My Favorite Things color challenge before, but since I just ordered a bunch of new stamps and dies and stencils... I thought I should play along!  Not to mention, I've got an ever-growing wish list, so a prize from them would be amazing!  ;)

Here's a card that I made for their current color challenge:

I love the Ride The Wave stamp and dies that I ordered!  I'm hoping to come up with some great ideas on using them!

I always need birthday cards and I think this one will for a boy or a girl and even grown ups as well!

I'd also like to enter this card into the challenge over at Fresh Brewed Designs √- because I love her designs as well!!  The theme is The Sky's The Limit and I've used a balloon.  

Thanks for checking in!  Wish me luck on the challenges!


Fun Stampers Journey - Kit of the Month

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Monday, March 30, 2015 1 stamps of approval
Hi there!!

It's been a busy month, but I did find time to finish up my Kit of the Month from Fun Stampers Journey!

I really enjoyed this kit and I know that I'll be able to use these stamps in more cards in the future.  The sentiments are great for many occasions and the bottles could even be dressed up as potion bottles for Halloween!  Or filled with hearts for Valentine's Day!  Such versatility in this set!

Here are my cards, each of them made following the directions and using the supplies that came with the kit.  After each photo, I'll write what supplies I added.

This is all of the cards in the kit.  I just love the fun color combos!

For this card, I colored the sand, shell and bottle stopper with Primacolor markers and added a product similar to Journey Glaze (I can't remember what mine is called) to the whole bottle.

This one is also colored with Prismacolor markers.  I used the same glaze for the "missing you" tag.  I also used some gold spritz to splatter the card.  The spritzing wasn't quite dramatic enough for me, so I pulled the spritzer out and used the end of the tube to dab the gold splats.

This bottle isn't completely covered with glaze, but there is an outline to add some dimension.  Again, Prismacolor markers for the color and there is a touch of gold splatter here, as well.  Love the little metal clip that came in the kit!

This last card has a glazed bottle with Prismacolor markers for coloring.  The kit included the little sequins that look like bubbles.

Please take a moment to go check out Kristy's website:

I'm sure you'll find lots of wonderful products and great ideas from this fun company!
