You Rock My World


Hi everyone!!

Not sure if anyone remembers, but back in February I was invited to be a Guest Designer for the sweet A Random Fan company.. I feel in love with  all the sweet stamps you can find in the store.

Well today I am extremely excited to share that the lovely Sherry had asked me last month if I would be a designer for her digital team and of course I said yes!! Most Definitely!!

Today I am being introduced over on the A Random Fan blog and here is my first share as a A Random Fan designer 


I am couldn't resist this adorable  "Rock My World" image 



He is the sweetest lil guy to color up, I had a blast with him adding in some 
grass for him and his little friend, and of course a beautiful sky for him to enjoy
making his music on a beautiful day! 


This card was made a few weeks back, but when I heard about little Danny  from "Danny's Warrior"
I knew it was a perfect card to send his way to help brighten up his 6th birthday. I did add a birthday sentiment inside before sending it off to him.

ARF image - Rock My World 
Color Medium - Copic
Designer Papers - Studio G
embellishments - Navy Blue Gum drops 

                                                                       Check it Out!!
 for a chance to win some of these sweet images!  


Until Next Time, Thanks so much for visiting!!

Art By Miran New Rubber Stamps

Hi, hope your week has started off good, mine couldn't be better!! 

First day on the new job
and I absolutely excited to know this was definitely a good move for me, Fantastic first day and looking forwardto my 2nd one today!

Today I am sharing a couple of cards that I created using the fabulous new rubber stamps by Art by Mi Ran!
These are just two of the six new rubber stamps exclusively designed for Whimsy Stamps

My first card is showcasing Painter Pennie 


Isn't she too cute!! Love how she has the splatter of paint on her face
and her apron. As we crafters' all know when we use paint, markers or glitter
there is as much on us as there is on our canvas!


I paired her with these sweet papers by American Crafts Mayberry
My two little tags, I cut from one of the papers in the line and then stapled some ribbon
and created to adorable embellishments for my design! 

My second card is showcasing Little Witch 
I know I shared this one last week during our preview blog hop with Whimsy Stamps
but just wanted to share again as I {heart} this stamp of this adorable little witch!



I just adore her too sweet face expression. and her gracefulness with 
riding her broom!! Although there not one scary piece to this stamp
she is a fabulous stamp for a Halloween project.


I paired her up with some Echo Park Apothecary papers. Fussy cut her 
out with her sky background and then layered onto a circle die cut. Using 
some of the stickers for embellishments to add a bit of Haunting & Spooky 
touches!!

I hope you enjoy my share today and invite you to visit the Whimsy Stamp store
to see all of the fabulous stamps Art By Mi Ran has created exclusively for Whimsy Stamps

Have a fabulous day!
Hugs!

I'm Just a Phone Call Away

Hi everyone!! 

I have been playing with one of  artbymiran new released images
and have a super cute card I created to share!


I found this adorable template for this VW beetle card over on Pinterest
was perfect for creating my DT July theme card with!
You can find the template for the car here 

I printed off some fun papers that were perfect for our July theme 
of using your Country Flag colors.
I followed the easy template and instead of using card stock for 
my windshield I used clear piece of acetate, then cut my wipers from 
a piece of black card stock. Traveling Tracy is colored with Copic, fussy cut and then 
attached to the front of the car.

Be sure to swing over to artbymiran's blog, every day  we share  inspiration with all these beautiful images by artbymiran!!



Until next time, Thanks so much for visiting!!
