thank you + sneak peek

Hello!
Hope all is well! 

Check out Mariana's brilliant card....she is so awesome with colour and design!! I just love how she used our Pretty Peonies stamp set and circle dies....and the stitching is perfect! Stamp the flower on different coloured cardstock, cut them out in this case with circle dies and then match up the petals and you get a fun, bright and FAB card!



I'm busy drawing....so many ideas I'm having a bit of an anxiety attack!! Deep breaths!!
Here's a sneak peek of one of the many things I'm working on! 


Have a great weekend!

you are awesome and #tbt

Hello!
Hope all is well! :)

It's Ange's turn on the blog and she's created this simple and gorgeous card using our Butterflies  stamp set. 




On instagram I like to do #tbt (throw back Thursdays) and thought why not do it here on the blog too! :) So here's a card I created way back using my Noah's Ark stamps set which is an adorable set for a baby theme but it also makes a pretty cute bon voyage card too!




I paper pieced the ark and coloured and cut out the animals and distressed the images with ink.


I'm getting a little excited...if all goes well I should be getting brand new JD stamps in the next couple of days!!! Eeeee! :)

Christmas sneak peek!

Hello!

Many of you enjoy seeing my creative process so I thought I'd share this little sneak peek on some new JD stamps I'm working on. As a stamp designer you literally have to live in the future...what do I mean?? I have to think months down the road when doing my designs when it comes to the holiday like Christmas. In the past I started drawing in October for Christmas which didn't work out for several reasons....all the time need to manufacture the stamps and send them to the DT. Also people want to order their stamps a head of time so that they have enough time to create their cards so I was never on time. That's why I have Christmas on my brain! :)


Like every design of mine it all starts with a piece of paper and a pencil. I roughly sketch it out and if I'm happy with it I'll do another sketch (more polished) so that I can colour it to get the feel of how it would look on a card etc. Then if there's any minor adjustments I make them and draw the final draft which I scan.




I used my Graph'it makers to colour.





Just a little reminder...mChristmas stamps are on sale! :)



Well, that's it for this sneak peek!
Have a great day!

Hello!
Hope all is well!

It's Angeline's turn on the JD blog today and she created this beautiful tag using Pretty Peonies, Autumn Blessings and Blessings Sentiments.




Also I wanted to share this giveaway I'm doing on my blog...



I had to wrap up a little special birthday gift and as I do many many times I used a paper bag and stamped dots all over it with our Geometric Patterns stamp set. I then stamped and cut out a tag from our Life is Good stamp set and the sentiment is from our TEArrific (Croatian version) stamp set.



Have a great day!

it is what it is!!!

Hello!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend and that our American friends had a great time celebrating the 4th of July! I'm sure lots of you are having and/or going to barbecue's and I don't know about you but I tend to over do it...little too much ćevapi (Ćevapi (pronounced [tɕɛv̞ǎːpi]) or ćevapčići (formal diminutive[tɕɛv̞ǎptʃitɕi],ћевапчићи) is a grilled dish of minced meat, a type of kebab, found traditionally in the countries of southeastern Europe (the Balkans). They are considered a national dish in Bosnia and Herzegovina[1] and Serbia[2][3][4] and are also common in CroatiaMontenegroSlovenia, as well as in Republic of MacedoniaBulgariaRomaniaCzech RepublicSlovakiaAustria and theItalian province bordering Slovenia.)!! If you're visiting Croatia go have yourself a serving of ćevapi! 
And there's always some kind of desert following....it is what it is! :)

Mariana created this FANTASTIC card using our It's a Guy Thing and Food On The Go stamp sets.


Have a great day!

4th of July SALE!

Hello!

Hope all is well! :)

It's Friday....yay!....and it's the 4th of July which means the majority of my customers are celebrating independence...yay!





Now that I am managing the shop I have noticed that the majority of my customers are from the USA so I figured a sale on the 4th of July was in order. Now this sale is for everyone (not only the US) because I do appreciate ALL my customers.





So...you don't necessarily need a 4th of July stamp set to make a card. I used mJungle Baby Suzi and Read All About It stamp sets to create this card (the sentiment is a SRM sticker).




I stamped and coloured Suzi onto my white cardstock and I also stamped the strings from the balloons (I just put a post it on the balloons when I inked up the string). I stamped the balloons and cat on a scrap white cardstock, coloured and cut them out. I adhered them in place...I also drew with a black marker pen string around the balloon string around the cats tail and up to the balloon.

I then randomly stamped stars around Suzi and heat embossed with clear heat embossing powder.



So pop on over to the shop and take a look around...sale ends Sunday! :)
Have a great weekend!
