Tangerine Rockets

Hi everyone! I've switched to Thursdays, just to mix it up a little bit :) Today I'm sharing with you a card that is *totally* unlike things I usually make, which is so fun! I started with the Up, Up, and Away Rocket image, picked some dp, and went from there.

I've had this About A Boy DP by Fancy pants for awhile, and love it. When I got it out I was inspired to make something with super bold colors. So I ended up with this tangerine-colored rocket, orange and gold ribbons, and jumbo gold eyelets.

I had so much fun making this one. Now I'm hooked on the color orange, and want to use it more! Hope you are all having a great week -- see you next Thursday!


  • Cardstock/Paper: Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Prismatics White, Fancy Pants About a Boy dp
  • Stamps: Up Up and Away Rocket
  • Ink: Tangerine Tango
  • Tools & Accessories: Nesties, Copics, Ribbons, Jumbo Eyelets

Hello, it's Juanita again. I am here for my Wednesday post. I made this card using Polar Bear and Penguin Digi, this adorable image can only be purchased here. Aren't these 2 friends too cute. I used Crystal Effects on the piece of ice the polar bear is sitting on. I also used my Clear Spica to outline the water. I love the way this image turned out, but then again I seem to love the way all these fabulous images turn out.

Did you know there is a 2 Cute Rubber Stamps Facebook page ? Check it out because Heidi has a contest going on over there. You can find the details on either her blog or the Facebook page.

There is still plenty of time to get the free digi and enter our first challenge. We are looking forward to see what you come up with.

Tutorial-Digi Image on a T-Shirt

Happy Monday!

Jennifer here to show you a great tutorial on how to get your favorite digi images onto a T-Shirt. This Mermaid and Friends image is a new digital-only version that Heidi is making available only on her blog. Go and check out all of the wonderful Digi's she has there.

I start by opening the image up in Photoshop (I am using Photoshop CS4 for all of this work, use whatever editing software you have). Size it to the size you want printed.

I am using the paint bucket tool to color in my image.

Here she is all colored in! I added some shadows in where I thought it need it.
Also you can see (below) I added a blue background.

Next what you'll need to do is flip the image. You can do this in the editing software, or when you print it, choose t-shirt or reverse in the settings.

Here is the transfer paper I use. (you can get it at any Office Supply store)

Here she is all printed out and trimmed. You'll need trim the excess paper, because you will see it when it gets ironed on the shirt. So I trimmed it in a nice shape that works well with the image.

Here are the instructions for ironing it that are on the back of the transfer paper I use.

Back and fourth pressing down for 3 minutes.

After you iron the whole thing wait for it to be COMPLETELY COOLED before you take the backing paper off of the image.

Here she is all ironed on the shirt

Here is the final T-Shirt!
I made this for my niece Madeline, I hope she loves it as much as I do.

Computer, HP Iron on T-Shirt Transfers (or which ever brand you like)
Iron set on High-No Water, and Fun Fringe (I sewed this on by hand)

Now is a good time to remind you on the "rules" for digi images.

Enjoy the Moment!

Hey everyone! Back again today for another post!
If you missed the project by our February Guest Designer, Tracey Clark, then be sure to scroll down!

Here is my card today.
I used the Up, Up, and Away Rocket Cling Cushion Stamp on this card, cut it out and added it to my card (American Crafts PP, PTI Kraft Cardstock.) After coloring with my Copics, I used Glossy Accents to make the window of the ship, and the other parts shine! Add some cute Cosmo Cricket buttons and Pebbles Inc. Candy Dots. The sentiment is from PTI as well.

Hope you all have a fab week! See you back here tomorrow!

Sweet Birthday Treat

Happy Saturday everyone! This week I'm sharing a birthday card I made for a friend of mine and I think the ice cream looks delicious! That could have something to do with me being pregnant though - all sweets make me hungry :)

I used the Penguin Fun image on my card. This little cutie is available in digi format,
cling cushion, or as part of a whole cling cushion set of different images. How's that for variety?? On my card he's a digi image, sized just the way I wanted him.

I handstitched the little sentiment tag on there, and left the rest of the card embellishment free. I like how clean it ended up looking!

**DON'T FORGET: We are having a super fun contest right now! Grab this darling digi image from Heidi's blog, make a card, and upload it. You'll be entered to win a free stamp form 2 Cute Rubber Stamps! All of the deets are in this post :)

Furry Friends Like to Read!

Hi everyone! Happy almost-Valentine's Day :) It's Taylor here, and this week I'm sharing with you a super simple project that is part of my four-year-old daughter's Valentine's Day present. It's a cute, colorful bookmark I made using the Furry Friends stamp!

Since this stamp is available as a digi image as well as cling cushion and wood-mounted, I chose to print it out so it would make a larger focal point. I used Copic markers to color the cat, dog, and box they are sitting in. I added small flowers to the box using a Copic Spica glitter pen in green. For the sweet puppy's collar I used a pink one - every little girl loves some sparkle!

I know this is an easy-peasy sample today but I really like it. My munchkin loves to read and steals my bookmarks all the time so I know this will be a well received "extra" alongside her candy and art supplies Cupid is bringing her!

Don't forget: to buy stamps from the Etsy shop, go here. Exclusive digi stamps are available for purchase on Heidi's blog here. And don't forget to leave her comments about what sketches you love - she may just turn them into a stamp for you!


  • Cardstock/Paper: Green Galore, Naturals White, Pixie Pink
  • Stamps: Furry Friends
  • Ink: printer
  • Tools & Accessories: ribbon, jumbo eyelet, nesties, copics, martha stewart edge punch

Dreaming Ladybugs...

Happy Friday!
Valentine's Day is coming up on Sunday, so I wanted to do a sweet card to share for today! I chose the sleepy ladybug stamp and used the digital image twice, reversing one of the two so they were facing each other. I love the sentiment, "I sleep with a smile because I see you in my dreams..." A closer look...
The card base is actually a medium grey, but shows up quite dark on the picture. The heart and pink/red plaid paper are from Little Yellow Bicycle. I had some red and white polka dot paper in my stash that I cut and pleated and secured buttons on the ends. Top corners are rounded and edges are inked in charcoal. I used Copics to color and the sentiment is in Papyrus font.
Visit 2Cutes Etsy shop to get your rubber, cling, or digi images today! Start creating... you only have a couple days to make your sweetie a card! Happy crafting!

Totally Turtle Sundae's!!!!

Happy Thursday 2 Cute Fan's and Stampers!!!,

I am so sorry I am late in getting my post up late today yesterday was just a very rough day for me and I am behind on things but I am trying to catch up now!!!!

So I love this Two Cute Image with this Sweet Turtle who has an Ice Cream Sundae on his back!!! He is just super adorable and I love him he was also totally fun to print out and color up!!!!

So Here is my full Card below. The papers are Purely Pomigranate and patterned papers in Taken with Teal, Old Olive, and Rose Red. The Flowers are Prima's and there are copper brads and dew drops added too!!!

I used my Labels 4 Nesties to do the panels behind the image and I thought it would be fun to diagonally alter everything off of each other.

The Image is colored up in these Copics:
G20, G21, G24
BG10, BG15, BG18
R81, R83, R85, and R39

Happy Cat

Hello everyone, it's Juanita again with your Wednesday post. Did you know we have a giveaway going on right now? If not I suggest you check it out here.

I colored this adorable image to go with this DP. Isn't this cat so cute with the yarn in his mouth? I realizes after I colored in the image that I didn't have many orange embellishments so I kept this card simple. I did have some orange bling but this kitty wasn't feeling the bling so I opted for clear Dew Drops. I chose this sentiment because that what I feel when I see this image. Thanks for stopping by today!

Be sure to check out Heidi's Blog, she has exclusive digi's that will only be available there. She also post new sketches for you to rate whether they should be made into a stamp or not. Also be sure to come back tomorrow to see what Heather has created for us.
