Wishing you A Monster Birthday

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Saturday, January 31, 2015 2 stamps of approval
Hiya!  I made a card this morning for a little boy who's turning 7.  He's a friend of my son's from school and he was having a party today.

So, a quick card for him just before the party!

His name starts with "R", and I was lucky enough to have this big "R" stamp hiding out in my craft room!  I added a few Lawn Fawn Monster Mash cuties and a googley eye to my colorful papers and viola!  All done!

I hope the little guy liked his card!

Challenge Time!

With the Superbowl being this weekend, we thought it would be a great time to have a TEAM SPIRIT challenge at the Meljen's Designs blog!

Show us your colors!!

I chose to use Blue & Green - do you know who my team is?


I used Meljen's Designs "Sports Fan Teddy" for this one, I added the little 12 on his flag.

Even if you're not a sports fan, I'm sure you can find a team whose colors you can work with!  So, come join our challenge and have some fun!


How about a few more challenges?

All That Glitters ATC Swap

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Monday, January 12, 2015 3 stamps of approval
Hi there!

Here is an ATC (Artist Trading Card) that I made for my swap group on Facebook - Fun ATC Swappers.  The theme for December was "All That Glitters".

I used the "Stitched Stocking" stamp set from Stampin' Up! which I covered with Versamark ink and glitter embossing powder.  Add a bit of Holiday Cheer and some bling and baker's twine and it's good to go!

I'd like to enter this ATC into the current color scheme challenge at Wicked Wednesday

Also, the Winter Sparkle challenge at Sentimental Sundays

If you're interested in joining our swaps, check us out on Facebook

Thanks for stopping by!

New Year - New Projects!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Wednesday, January 07, 2015 0 stamps of approval
Happy New Year!!

I'm excited about new projects and lots of crafting fun this year!  

I'm still participating in ATC Swaps and that's been keeping me busy over the past few months, I've just been bad about sharing things here.

The latest swap that I've joined is "Winter" hosted by Kristy's Bloomin' Journey.

I've used a wonderfully fun stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey called "Enjoy Coffee".  If you know me, you know I love, love, LOVE coffee and all things coffee related!  I have a crazy huge collection of coffee stamps, dies, ribbons, stickers, paper, etc... and whenever I see something new, I have to have it!  That was the case with this great stamp set!  As soon as I saw it in the catalog, I just knew I had to have it!  I've been so impressed with the stamps from Fun Stampers Journey and if you're looking for something new, please go check them out!  
**If you are an ATC maker, you MUST go look at the catalog!  They have tons of stamps that are sized perfectly and specifically for ATC's!  They call them ATS (Artist Trading Stamps) and they are awesome!**

Here's the "Winter" ATC that I made for the swap using the Latte Cup from the stamp set.
I embossed the background paper to add a wintery feel, added the sparkly ribbon and row of fun snowmen which was cut from a stack of Christmas paper that I had.  I used a snowflake charm and a sentiment with one of my *many* favorite Christmas song titles.  Image is colored with Copics.

Thanks so much for stopping by! 

Happy Stamping!
