It feels like summer!

Good morning and happy Memorial Day.  I hope all of you are remembering our soldiers and loved ones.    This is a great day to have a summertime challenge at Totally Stampalicious because this weekend is the official start of summer.

For my summer card I have used Gus Mantastic that you can find HERE in the Totally Stampalicious store. The boats are some rub-ons that were tucked away in a drawer for a couple of years!  After I put the rub-ons on the kraft paper I used some glitter spray to adhere it more permanently.  

I hope you have a great week and don't forget to play along at Totally Stampalicious!

Totally Stampalicious Thank You

This is a great challenge to start this week with! I would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who left such kind comments on my post for the new release blog hop! We had a great turnout for the hop and I hope you are all enjoying the new stamps! 

Our challenge for this week is to make a thank you card or project. Make sure you head over to the Totally Stampalicious blog to see all of the great samples the dt has prepared for you! 

I have used one of the new stamp sets called A+ Bears.  You can find it HERE in the store.  I made this card for one of my daughter's softball coaches. Between my son and daughter I figure I ought to get started on these!  The bear is colored with copics and copic glitter pens.  The ball and bats are from a Stampin' Up set.

 Have a great week!

CAS at Totally Stampalicious

Happy Monday!  Today at Totally Stampalicious we have a clean and simple challenge for you.....yes it's  Clean And Simple! hehe :)

I have used stamp set Moo-Velous that you can see HERE at the Totally Stampalicious Store.  I have stamped the sheep on white cardstock and colored it with copics.  I decided to cut it out and adhere it to kraft cardstock and stamp the sentiment below it.

EEEEKKKK!  I'm late!!!  Sorry fellow teamies!  I'm so late with this post this morning because I just realized it was Sunday.  How bad is that!?!  It has been a very busy couple of weeks since the last Dream Valley post.  We have been running from practice to practice to game for my son's baseball and my daughter's softball; and my son just tried out for all-stars as well!  It's fun, but I tend to lose track of time!

So today at Dream Valley we have set the challenge to CASE the design team.  CASE means to Copy And Selectively Edit.  So take one of our designs, and make it yours!  We have two sponsors for the challenge this fortnight:


Make sure you link up your card for a chance to win prizes from these awesome sponsors!

For my card I have made a clean and simple one layer card.  I have used a pale pink card stock and black ink with a stamp set from Close to My Heart called Love Life.

Make sure you check out all the rest of the Dream Valley design team's awesome creations!  Have a great week!

It is been a great and sunny couple of days here in New Hampshire!  In that spirit we'd like to see some sparkle at Totally Stampalicious!  Haha what a segue! :P

For my project I have used Stampalicious Scarlette that you can find HERE in the Totally Stampalicious store.

I have added some glitter along the edges of the layers and on Scarlette's shoes and bag.  Also some pearls along the side panels.  

Have a great day and don't forget to link up your card at Totally Stampalicious!

New Sketch Challenge!

Hello again!  I hope you are all having a great week!  Here in New Hampshire we are having some rainy and dreary weather, but with high hopes for some 70 degree weather for the weekend!!!  Woohoo!!!  

There is a new sketch challenge posted today at The House That Stamps Built!  Hop on over there to see it!  If you link up your card or layout you could possibly be the one to win a prize from Repeat Impressions!  Awesome!

So here is my take on the sketch:

I have used some paper from K&Company and paired it with 8719-G Flip Flops stamp from Repeat Impressions.  A wonderful summery card right!?

I hope you have a great rest of the week and don't forget to play in the challenge at The House That Stamps Built!
