Old is new @ IO Stamps

Good Morning!!!

Today, we're featuring older stamps...oldies but goodies I say!!!

How about this totes adorbs little lady from the BUNNY GIRL Set.
The bonus? This girl is on sale right now in the shop!
That's a steal, when you purchase the sale items along with the 25% off site wide coupon that's available until March 29th.

In addition to the sweet little bun bun, I also used the pretty flowers from the Magnolia Wreath Set and coupled the rest with the Sweet Easter Wishes sentiment
I coloured the bunny with Copic Markers and stamped her wee dress onto patterned paper.

How about the Viney Background on the Kraft Tag?

Did you notice it matches the pattern on the Birdhouse?

Yep, that's a Chalk Couture Transfer and Paste!!

The Vine is from the House Patterns Transfer
I used Eucalyptus Paste, which is one of my FAVE CC colours!

Curious about the Birdhouse?

In addition to the Paste and the Transfer, I used the following items:

Tags Mini (for the sloped roof)
The Stand is the base for the Couture Board and Pillar Set.

Ribbon is from Michaels and the little egg embellie is from the Dollarama
The metal and glass knob is from my little stash of treasures!

Hope you enjoyed my project.

Be sure to hop on over to the IO Blog to see who is sharing samples today!

Don't forget to check out the sale!!!!

Have a WONDERFUL day and

Good Morning!

How is everyone holding up this weekend?

Truth be known, I can't say I am not enjoying this time of isolation
I truly appreciate the slower pace and the lack of pressure to be out in the world and busy.
I am taking the time to get things organized around the house, read, chat with friends online and explore my creativity. Yesterday I pulled out my Gelli Plate and made some pretty backgrounds to showcase future stamps!!!!

Today, i'm cleaning up my craft space so I can do a live chalk couture demo!

For this card, I used the following dies:


What a great day to shop!!!!

Most of all, Stay Safe!!!

IO Designer Challenge-Pour one on

Good Morning!!!

Anyone feeling in need of a good stiff drink??

With all that is going on in the world, it's ice {er nice!}  to step away for a bit and focus on one's creativity.  A much healthier coping strategy to deal with uncertainty and anxiety. 
My plan for the next couple of weeks while social distancing, is to do some spring cleaning, make some cards and do some live crafting vids!!!! 

This week's challenge over at IO Stamps is to create a project with a beverage theme. 
Like me, it could be a Margarita, A Banana Dacquari or a Mojito, but it might even be a nice cup of Tea or for you lovers of Beans, a Latte, Espresso or just a plain old cup of Joe!!!

For my card I use the Mixed Drink Set of dies and cut them out in a few patterns to create my drinks!
I then cut the glasses again into a plain piece of white card and mounted it onto dimensionals, so I could sink the colours down into the glasses. I added some Garnish and a little Glossy Accent to make it look drinkable!!!

I used the  Checkered Frames dies to highlight the main images and added a sentiment that I found in the Introverting stamp set. Of course I also used  the Impression Obsession Black Ink to ensure a crisp image!!!

Be sure to head over to the IO Stamps Blog to load up your creation and to see who is sharing today!!!!

Be safe, Breathe Deeply and Be Kind
