Sending Happy Thoughts...Smiley Faces

I used a new stencil and a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp's latest release,  to make a smiley face card today:)!!...
The sentiment I used from the new set, Circle Sayings, just yelled "Smiley Face" I used a smiley face stamp from the Simon Says Stamp Color and Sunshine stamp set to bring some "happy" to my card.  I used white embossing paste with the fun stencil and after it dried, die cut holes out, to put the stamped and punched out smiley faces into:)!!  Here's a close up of the sentiment... always...FUN, FUN, FUN!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

Blossom Bunch...Three Ways

Last time I made cards with this fun and pretty Stampendous Blossom Bunch stamp, I had just gotten my new Prismacolor pencils for Christmas...HERE.   For my birthday, my wonderful sister, Rebecca, bought me some Prismacolor MARKERS!!  SO...I got out that stamp again, and colored...wanted to show you what I made:)!!...
 I stamped, clear embossed and colored.  Then, I tore some copy paper (did this the other day), and stamped the background stamp through the paper onto the card.

 This second card, I stamped on patterned paper.  I stamped again, on white cardstock and cut (LOVE fussy relaxing!!) and colored the flowers, adhering them onto the stamped image on the patterned paper.

This third one is actually one that I made almost a couple months ago, when I first got the markers, took a pic, then gave the card away.  Simply stamped, framed and popped up on the same patterned paper as the second card (LOVE this striped paper...from Hobby Lobby...use it A LOT!!), then dotted the centers of the flowers with enamel accents.
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

Color Me Happy

The Color Me Happy stamp set by Reverse Confetti is a fun set of stamps!!  It is made with the latest and coolest trends in stamping in mind...paint stamps...strokes and splats!  I must admit, though, whether it's actual paint/ink strokes/ splatters or stamps...I am not an accomplished "stroker/splatterer"!  I have made a couple cards, trying my hand at it...I have to say, it was a LOT of, easy and simple ("Rainbows" is my favorite:)!!)...
I used three different strokes for this first one, along with the "hello" stamp from the set.

I used two different stroke stamps on this card(changing their direction to make the strips look different), using the "hello" the boldness of this sentiment!  I versamarked and clear embossed the black card on this one...
as well as the black frame on the first one...
I've realized the possibilities are pretty endless with these paint much fun!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

CAS(E) this Sketch 120...A Teacher Thank You

What a fun sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch!  HAD to give it a try!!  Here's my card and the sketch...

I substitute teach, and thought this would be something much nicer to leave for the teacher than my normal piece of lined paper with my class notes on it:)!  Tore a hole from a piece of copy paper, stamped the sentiment through to the card with a brand new stamp from Simon Says Stamp that I thought PERFECT for this!!  Stamped and layered the die cut apple...simple....and so much fun!!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

Thanks so much, ladies at CAS(E) this Sketch for the recognition in naming my card a FAVORITE this honored and thrilled:)!!...
You have definitely made my week...congrats to the winners this always, so much fun:)!!
