2/15/20 Featured Top Rocker at 613 Avenue Create!

Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you’re having a good weekend! This month’s Anything Goes with Dies Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you today!

I created the most adorable baby card featuring a pair of shoes that I colored with my Prismacolor pencils. First of all, I’ve had this C.C. Designs rubber stamp in my stash for several years and it’s never had ink on it until now. How in the world does this happen?! Secondly, I’m still somewhat of a novice coloring with pencils and I’m so proud of how this turned out!


Aside from the adorable image, this features an ivory and salmon-ish color combo along with several die cuts – large and small classic squares, layered postage stamps and stitched sentiment flag. I embellished the tips of the postage stamp notches with tiny and small iridescent gemstones.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the cardstock used on the front, and then stamped a simple sentiment.


One more look… oh.my.gosh. I’m so smitten!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
