AWWWWEEE I love the poodle! I don't know what's up with the ooober dark picture though...sorry about that, but I definitely wanted to share this little sweetie with you all! I made it for my friends the Barkers, (super fitting last name they have) who have 3 girls just adopted their very FIRST dog a poodle terrier mix. They rescued her from their local ASPCA!

I am super pleased with the card and her as for her BIG eyelashes...see the Whooo has beautiful lashes for details about them! The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's NEW line it's the Fabulous Phrase set and is a really long sentiment which I stamped then cut and mounted separately I really like all the fun things you can do with this set! I hope you all like it..if you do let me know I LOVE your comments! Have a Fabulous day {hugs}~Raechel

Whooo has beautiful Lashes?

OMG I totally wish I had thick luscious eyelashes like my husband!?? Ohh yes he has thick NATURALLY curly beautiful lashes...
ok so I am a little off subject tonight! LOL!!! But my little cutie has the most adorable lashes! I actually got the idea from another blogger who I really wish I could remember...sorry I can not, it was one of those WOW moments that stuck in my head! I am using the My Pink Stamper Sport-Tastic set for this! LOL My family is sooo not into sports so I crack myself up finding non-sports ways to use this stamp set! Hope you enjoy this simple creation...OH AND PS I made that cute little rosebud myself! From miss Tarabeeink1 tutorial on youtube I only had to pause/rewind 3 times! give it a try! HUGS~RaechelI used my heat embossing tool and white embossing powder to get my "whoot whoot" sentiment to really POP!
I used a small Fiskars flower punch to get these adorable eyelashes!
I used ZIG two way glue over the top of the rose bud then sprinkled with glitter

Dont' Worry BE HAPPY!
Doesn’t this card have you singing the Bobby McFerrin song Don’t Worry Be Happy??? I totally thought of that song the moment I saw this image! I use My Pink Stampers NEW Music Speaks sentiment I thought it suited this cut perfectly!!! I also used the cuttlebug, and I went white gel pen crazy!!! The colors are actually 80s happy face yellow, bright bold purple and lime green which I'm sad to say didn't photograph as limey as it is...but I like it! It looks so retro 80s to me! I hope you enjoy!

PinkAlicious BLOG hop!!!

Welcome to the My Pink Stamper's PinkAlicious Blog Hop!

If you are here from Andrea Devine Domesticity then you are right on track! If you want to start at the beginning start at Robyn's Blog "MY PINK STAMPER"

For my project I chose to do a card {shocker...It’s what I do} The challenge is Black + Your Favorite Color. I used a smidgeon of black and the Tiffany & Co. color of “Tiffany blue & white” as my +1 color! I decided to keep the base of my card un-embossed to match the style of the Tiffany box.
The Sentiment I used is from Robyn’s NEW Stamp Set Music Speaks The Gift of Song! In a beautiful package!

My Tiffany Song Box which will house the gift of song {or iTunes! LOL} I thought it is PERFECT for an iTunes gift card!
I actually used a few different sentiments from this stamp set. The Gift of song is the main sentiment and then as a background to the title I used 3 others Melody, Harmony, and Rhythm. I used tape to cover the portion of the sentiment I was not stamping, for example Perfect Harmony I taped off Perfect inked up my image removed the tape and got a clean stamped Harmony! I used the "cheater method" in a NEW way
Cartridge: Sweethearts {gift box}, Sweet Treats {scallop},
Stamps: My Pink Stamper Music Speaks
Paper: Stampin Up, Scrap Pack from Target
Extras: Bling, EK Circle Top Note Punch, Ribbon, White Gel Pen

Valentine Treat Bags!

YAY My daughter is a junior in Highschool but she STILL loves giving her friends treat bags!!! I'm thinking I only have 1 more year of goodie bags then I'll have to resort to my nieces and nephews...I don't think college freshman give out goodie bags? LOL!
I tried to keep it SIMPLE because teenage boys only want the candy they don't really care about my cricut creativity (GASP) shocking I know! So I cut the topper at 3 by 4 scoring at 1.5 and cuddlebugged the whole thing after I folded it...easy peasy! The sentiment is My Pink Stamper's Happiest Moments PERFECT for holidays...the sentiment is mounted on an EK punch from Joanns super cute! All the hearts are from Stampin Up's heart punch...there is a cutsie little ticket inside each bag that says "good for one hug anytime" awwwee so cute my BESTIE Nicole gave that cute stamp to me and she didn't get one for they are all gone =( I told her we will share! LOL! I love the end result! Let me know what you think??

Thank You for all your support!

I am sooo thankful for all the wonderful comments and New Followers!!! WOW I am loving all the support and ideas! YAY!!
This card has a gorgeous prima flower which inspired the color scheme. I also used my new Cuttlebug Folder Forest Branches which was a RAK from my friend Kathleen! THANK YOU Kathleen I love it!
I cut out my "Thank You" sentiment from the Cindy Loo Cart thinking it had a shadow and I was going to shadow it in brown...guess what? Yep No shadow :( I just left time I'll just use a darker color so the sentiment is easier to read. I layered my ribbon I cheater method-ed my brown layer forgetting that..umm hello I was doing 2 happy mistake I cut the cream ribbon with a pointe tail and cute! I am happy with the overall look, hopefully you all like it too! {HUGS}~Raechel
