My Style Stamp Puppy and Wally Layouts

I am so excited to get started working on the baby album for my son and daugher in law.  They are having my first grandchild and this book is so special for me to make for them.  I want to make a book so all my dtr has to do is place the pictures.  I want this book to be fun and entertaininig for years to come.  These are the first 2 pages I have done and they are perfect for what I want.  When I bought these stamps I had no idea that I was going to be a grandma,  but when I found out I knew I was going to pull them out and use them in my book.  I do have the monkey stamp and have plans for him too,  just haven't got done with him yet.  My Style Stamps has such a variety of stamps and I just loved it when she came out with these fun loven animals.   Both my son and dtr in law are in the Navy so Walley was just perfect with his Nautical extras in the stamp set.   I used my copics to color but also used some paper pieceing and copics to add shading to Walley some character.  I just love how the images give the layouts extra love and fun.  The puppies are just to adorable and cheerful with there balloons,  they can celebrate any occasion, not only birthdays. 

Here is my video if you are interested in closer view,  I bought the stamps at also if you would like to take a peek,  she has a ton of embellishments also if interested.

Aloha Easel Card

I just love this little lady from My Style Stamps.  She was one of the first stamps I bought and still my favorite.  I knew when I let Tatiana pick the colors for the flowers she made me, she would do an ausume job.  These were perfect for this image.  I pulled out my Bohemian paper from Graphic 45 to make this 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 easel card.  I layered my Aloha Image girl colored with my copies,  on spellbinder dies.  My green layer is stamped with with Lots of Love Boarders from My Style Stamps.  I white embossed the arrows.  I used flowers, doiles, butterfly and bird from Tatiana, to accent my image.  The sentiment comes from from the Aloha stamp set.  Bling is from various Recollections from Micheals.

Sympathy Card using My Creative Time

I wanted to make a Sympathy card for a youtube friend who mother passed away.   I have a great set of Inspirational Words from My Creative Time.  I knew this set would be perfect but could not decide which word to use,  so I combined a bunch of the words to made a background paper.  I had some purple velum, so I clear embossed the words on the velum and layed the velum over some bazzel poka dot purple paper. I did take wome white pigment ink over the dots first, so they would stand out more.  I layed this on top of some light purple card stock with a slight edge showing.   I used the same light purple paper to make some tulips and a label for my sentiment.   I used the scallop edge die to make my own label.  I used the jar die and cut out some regular frosted velum, so that you can see the green stems of the tulips.   I used the scroll image from the new Paris stamp set for the imprint on my tulips, that I cut with last months tulip die cuts.  The Sympathy saying comes from a set also available at My Creative Time
