HAPPY Monday

Good morning everyone, Jodie here and unfortunately I'm heading off to work. Luckily, however, I still find time to do what I enjoy, cardmaking, and the digi stamps from 2 CuteRubberStamps make it so easy. This little fella is Hula Hoop Hamster...

I colored in the little guy using my Copic markers, then added shading with colored pencils and a blender pencil. I next used a Martha Stewart corner punch for the photo corners and matching border punch for the layered border strip.
The purple paper in the background is suede and then finally I added Flower Soft for that extra added dimension!
I hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day and come back and see us soon, take care!

Manatee Friends

Hello there all of our 2 Cute crafty friends...
As I'm typing this post it is still Friday and I spent my morning at a local beach with my three daughters and the twins that I care for. We had a wonderful time building sandcastles and lunching at the Deer Creek State Park. The sun was hiding but managed to bake me and then I had tons of errands to run...what a day!

I knew I had a post for 2 Cute Rubber Stamps due for Saturday and I just couldn't feel anything jump out at me. You know how sometimes when you are super tired from a fantastic day and you really want to create something special but your mojo seems to be taking a nap? Well, that was the state I found myself in until I came across Manatee Friends. This little image just grabbed me! It is so cute and fun and reminded of me of the day I'd spent with my little ones playing, laughing and being silly.

I found inspiration in this wonderful image from Heidi at 2 Cute Rubber Stamps and I hope you will too.

Happy Monday everyone, Jodie here, so that means another fun creation using 2 CuteRubberStamps. As some of you may know, being from Canada, I do enjoy the cold weather, and I love stamps having to do with polar bears, penguins, etc. so this little guy really jumped out at me!

Stamps: Happy Birthday Penguin and the saying is from Hero Arts
Paper is from Coredinations
For the white embossed paper I used my Cuttlebug and Embossing Folders
Stickles Glitter Glue
The decorative edged paper is cut from one of the new Tim Holtz dies from Sizzix
Then of course I colored him in with Copic markers

Happy Saturday with Thank You Kitty...

Hello fans of 2 Cute Rubber Stamps! This is your newbie DT member, Gwen. I'm really excited to do my very first post here at 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. Let me tell you that being asked to serve on this team was a great honor for me. I just adore the super sweet and adorable images that Heidi creates. Choosing just one image to work with was sooooooooooo very difficult. After much deliberating I decided to use Thank You Kitty. It is a sweet little image that is sure to make any little girl smile.
 (No matter how little or big she is.)

My little project was made for a very special little girl in my life...my four year old daughter and fellow crafter, Bekah. She has been very, very ill the past few days and I felt she needed a little pick-me-up. So, I put together this little get well card for her.

I hope you enjoy it...I hope SHE enjoys it too. With a cute little image like this one...I don't know how she couldn't.

The image is colored with Copic Markers and has a few highlights with an opaque pen in white. I also added some glaze pen to the rose in center to bring it out a bit more.
It really looks much better in person. My poor lighting didn't do it justice.
For a full product recipe of this project you can visit my blog at Gwens Busy Little Hands.

Oh, don't forget to pick up your free digi and enter the challenge. Click HERE to see the challenge details...this is a win-win...a free digi to use and the chance to win another!
Woo-hoo! Heidi totally ROCKS!

Penguin Fun Take 2

Hello everyone! It's Juanita again, here to share another card featuring Penguin Fun. Last week I asked for suggestions on what cool kinds of ice cream I should try and create. Well Deb suggested I try mint chocolate chip. Look I made some cool ice cream colors, no chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Don't they look yummy??

Just a quick reminder that we have a challenge going on, you can find the details here. We would love to see what you create with Hula Hoop Hamster. He will only be a freebie while the contest is going on.

To The Moon!

Hope everyone is having a good week so far.  I know that I didn't want the weekend to end, I enjoyed spending time with my family relaxing out by our pool, getting a little sun and reading a good book!!  

I don't do boyish cards very often so I decided to let my 3 year old son choose an image to make a card for Daddy.  This digi stamp is To The Moon, isn't this little guy and his pup adorable?  My son calls him Astro Boy!! :)

I even finished the inside of the card.

I added lots of little details while still keeping it perfect to give to a guy!  I think this would make a PERFECT Father's Day card.  If you'd like more information about this card including the Copic Markers used, check out my blog HERE.

Don't forget that our 3rd challenge here at 2 Cute is still going on.  Click HERE for all the details on how you can win a FREE rubber stamp by creating a project using our new FREE digi image, Hula Hoop Hamster

We'd love to see what you can create!!

Make a Wish

Good morning everyone,
It's Monday morning so that means another creation from Jodie. Here is the latest card I made using the Mermaids & Friends digi stamp. Also don't forget to download your free Hamster and Hula Hoop stamp to join in the challenge.

I used my Copic makers to color in the image, also using Coredinations cardstock. Also, don't forget you can use your Copic markers on more than just paper. The ribbon on the card was originally white, but I colored it with the marker I used for the image so that everything would co-ordinate.
Take care - Jodie

Hello there, are you glad the week is almost over? I am, time is going fast but my list of things to do is growing, lol. Anyways that's enough about me. Today I bring you a card featuring Penguin Fun, another fun, summer is just about here stamp. I don't know why but I can only color my ice cream these 3 colors, lol. I'm going to try some fun ice cream colors next week. Hmm I guess I'm going to have to start planning now. Which image do you think I should use? What fun ice cream flavors should I attempt to make? I look forward to hearing your responses and I'll do my best to pick one of your ideas.

Are you ready for some summer fun? Was that a YES? Be sure to check back tomorrow to see the super cute image Heidi has whipped up for everyone to use for the next challenge.

Cloud 9!

Good Morning, Wendy here with a little sneak peek into our next challenge that starts this Thursday (May 13). Make sure to come back on Thursday so you can take part in our 3rd challenge and get your FREE new digi image.  The DT is sure to have some wonderful samples to show you too!!

I've used Pet Angels Digi Image, which is simply adorable. I've made a card for a friend with a computer generated font that says, "You put me on Cloud 9!" The DP and the blossom flower is Cappella by Basic Grey. The image was of course colored with my Copic markers and I used Stickles in their halos. I just love the way it turned out.  Take a good look at the image I've used, there's a hint here to our next challenge image to be seen this Thursday...can you guess what it will be??

I hope this was some inspiration for you, and if you're interested in more information about this card including the Copic markers I used, please check out my blog HERE.

A 2 Cute Mother's Day!!

Hi Everyone! I'm Wendy, one of the newest 2 Cute DT members.  Look for a new project from me every Thursday!  :)

I've used Owl Miss You for my Mother's Day card. I just love this image and I've noticed that most of our DT does too! (Crystal used it Tuesday) It's a favorite because it's just so perfect for any occasion. I've used the digi version of Owl Miss You and flipped the image so that the flower would be to left of the owl instead of the right. It suited my sketch better that way; which is one of the coolest things about using digi images. You can manipulate them to fit YOUR needs. Need it larger? smaller? No Problem!! Not a digi fan like me? That's okay because 2 Cute offers their images 3 ways...Cling Mount, Wood Mount, and Digital. How AWESOME is that!?!? Take a look at the 2 Cute Store where there is a sale going on right now...50% Off all Wood Mount Stamps !!

I also wanted to share a quick tip on using your Copic markers - I didn't have a flower in the color that I needed for my card, so I used my Copic marker.  It went from Ivory to Rose Pink in 2 seconds flat.

More details about his card along with the Copic colors I used can be found on my blog HERE.

Make sure you check back tomorrow to see a Fabulous creation by Emma!

Schools Out!

Well almost, lol. My kids have less than 3 weeks of school left and I'm so not ready, lol. Happy Crabby reminds me of summer vacation, so I decided to showcase him. Isn't he just too cute with his shovel and pail having a good time at the beach. Soon the kids will be wanting to do the same thing.

Be sure to come back tomorrow to see what Wendy has to share with us all. Till next time :).
