Anything Goes at Totally Stampalicious!

Today is a bittersweet day for me.  My children go back to school, and I now have a fifth and a second grader!  I'm excited for them, but I don't believe that summer was long enough!  It seems like we were always on the go!

We have an easy challenge for you this week at Totally Stampalicious.  ANYTHING GOES!  Awesome!  

For my card I have kept it clean and simple...of course you say!  I have decided I really like crisp looking cards, and love the challenge of creating different looks with very little embellishment.  For today I have used Crabby Cathy Coffee that you can find HERE at the Totally Stampalicious store.  I stamped her at an angle in the corner of the white cardstock, and then drew a border around her.  

I have done the same with the sentiment on the inside to keep the style going throughout the card.

I really like this design and I think it will appear again in some of my creations!  

Have a great week!

CAS Stampalicious Monday

Thanks so much to all of those who participated in our new release blog hop last week!  Make sure you check out the Totally Stampalicious blog to see the winners!  

Today's challenge is to make a clean and simple card!  Woo hoo one of my favorites! LOL  Today I have used Cheerleader Brat that you can find HERE at the Totally Stampalicious store.

I colored it with my copics and put some glitter on the hair elastics and the pom poms.  My husband said I needed a little something extra for the pom poms, so my daughter supplied some blue fuzzy ones from her stash that completely matched the coloring!  Thanks J and M!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

My Sheri Crafts - Back to school
One Stitch at a Time - back to school

Have a great week!

Celebrate Summer with Totally Stampalicious!

That's right, there's still plenty of summer left despite all of the back-to-school letters and sale flyers! We at Totally Stampalicious would like to celebrate it with you!  Show us your summer based cards and crafts and maybe you can win a prize!

I have used Totally Stampalicious stamp set called Gus Fishing.  The die cut I used was cut out using the Big Shot.  I stamped the image and sentiment with black ink and then layered the brown colors from lightest to darkest using a sponging technique.  I didn't want to detract from the image so I popped up the panel on a white card.

Make sure you head on over to the blog and check out the rest of the design team's awesome inspiration!

Butterfly in the sky...

This card just reminded me of the Reading Rainbow song!  Ha!  Ok, down to business....This fortnight at Dream Valley Challenges we would like to see what you create using die cuts and punches.  We have two sponsors this time around.

The first one is One Stop Card Crafts that has donated this:

The second one is Inked Treasures!

For my card I have stuck with a clean and simple card.  

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up set Heard From the Heart in black on a light blue cardstock.  I used a butterfly punch from Marvy, and placed them around the image being careful to adhere only the bodies.  Once I had the butterflies where I wanted them I added some stickles and popped up the wings!  Simple yet very pretty and sparkly!

I would like to add this to the challenge at CAS-ual Friday's.  They would like a CAS card including something you would see in the sky!

I hope you play along in our challenge at Dream Valley!
