Crafters Of Faith June Blog Hop

Good Sunday morning and a big hello to all my readers!  I'am so glad to be able to share with you a card created with one of my favorite stamp sets. Today is the monthly Crafters of Faith Blog Hop!  Barb is hosting our challenge this month and her inspiration comes from Wisconsin's annual Dairy Month held in June.  She has asked us to create a card using a dairy or farm related theme. 

What's Moo

I chose this TAC (The Angel Company) stamp for the hop.  The Angel Company is now out of business, but they have left behind some fabulous stamps.  I used Copic markers for my coloring and design paper from my stash.  I think my paper is as old as this stamp!

Please take a moment and visit my blogging sister's blogs and see their creations.  They are listed on my sidebar.  Wishing everyone a blessed day!

Summertime Fun!

I hope everyone is having a fun summer!  Temperatures have settled into the 90's here and tourists are flocking to the nearby beaches in droves.  You won't catch me in that traffic, I live only 45 minutes away but the trip could take 2 - 3 hours on some days.  I'd rather stay in my nice cool craft room and color beach scenes than be in one, LOL!

I found this cute stamp set from The Craft's Meow.  The designs are by Mabelle R.O., owner and designer for The Whimsy and Stars Studio.   These are just purr-fect for summertime creations!  Here is my creation using this cute stamp:

Here's a closeup:

I colored with my Copics and used my Cricut and a Creative Memories border punch for my embellishments.  I found this totally cute design paper from Michael's.

Have a blessed day and thank you for visiting my blog!  Don't forget to visit Mabelle's Facebook Group here.

Whimsy and Stars DT Showcase Blog Hop

Welcome to the  Whimsy and Stars Studio design team showcase blog hop and new digi release!  The new summer design team is being introduced along with two new digis.  Mabelle has the new digi's available in her store here with an exciting new feature, instant download!  Two lucky random winners will be chosen and will receive one digi image of their choice.

Introducing Amelia and Little Princess:

They are just too cute!  I'm sure we all have our own "little princesses"!  I chose Amelia for my new creation, I think I was smitten with the huge flower and those adorable boots:

I'll just provide a brief description and then on to the blog hop!  I used Basic Grey "Lemonade" design paper and colored Amelia with my Copic markers.  I embellished my corner with a Cheery Lynn die and added a Creative Memories border.   

Thank you for hopping with us today! If you did not arrive here from Lesa's blog, you may want to start at the beginning.  Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop on the hop to increase your chances of winning a digi of your choice!

Whimsy Spring Boy and Girl

I have another great digi to share with you from Whimsy and Stars Studio, "Spring Boy and Girl".  I actually used a summer color palette instead of a spring one.  These creations from Maybelle R.O. are just so much fun to color!

My design paper is from My Mind's Eye, "Mabel" from the Stella Rose collection.  I used Copic markers to color my couple and sponged distress ink around the edges of my oval.  I couldn't resist adding some texture, so I embossed my panels.

There is a freebie challenge going on right now, just click here to get all the deets.  I can't wait to see what you create!

And... Whimsy and Stars is having a blog hop on June 18th to introduce a new digital stamp release, the DT showcase and the introduction of our Summer DT additions.  

Thanks for visiting my blog today,  I love sharing my creations and chatting with you!

Have a blessed day!
