You Are Amazing! Sea Shell Susie by Sherri Baldy

You Are Amazing! - My Besties Design Team Post

Hi Everybody!

This is my first My Besties Design Team post in over a year!  The last 12 months have flown by for me.

I'm posting Sherri Baldy's digi stamp called, Sea Shell Susie (IMG 383). You can purchase it at Scrapbook Stamp Society 

 I apologize, I usually break out the supply list and provide links but I had company yesterday and didn't get to finish my card until late last night and I'm now doing my blog post at 4:30 am.  LOL!  Oops!  I'll get back in the swing of things.

I used copics to color the image with some Sukura Gelly Roll metallic pens, sponged Memento Inks in Desert Sand and Summer Sky, Stickles in Fruitpunch (one of my favorite colors) and Glossy Accents.  I used Gina K Designs card stock in which I am a huge fan.  I used Black Onyx, White Heavy Base Weight, which I love for my card bases and for the layer I emboss.  I am pretty sure that cool ribbon that looks like netting to me is May Arts because I got it when I was on the Ribbon Carousel Design Team but I'm not 100% sure.  Sequins from my stash.  The stamp set is from Technique Tuesday called Appreciated and I used Spellbinders Labels 8 for the image layer and background layer.

I'm a little behind in trying some products so I'm just now experimenting with Gelatos.  I used metallic gelatos on the background.  I really wish you could see more of it.  I should've taken a picture of the background before I adhered the image.  I stamped kind of a flourish image and embossed in white.  I then just took the metallic blue and green gelatos and rubbed them with my finger to blend a little and took a baby white to wipe off some places creating an emboss resist.  These are so fun to play with and not messy at all if you use baby whites to clean up.

I hope you liked my card!  Have a great Sunday and please stop by my blog at

Oldies but Goodies

Hi Friends,  Sandy here with my Scrapbook Stamp Society DT creation for you! 
Today we are coloring My Besties with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. 

I wanted to showcase My Bestie Digi favorites that I have and why. Hopefully this will inspire you to try your first Bestie or if you are a Bestie collector like I am, help you organize your collection.

First off, I have a favorite card fold and here it is. It is not the easiest but I think it is a show stopper. Sometimes it is hard to design how to decorate a card ie: placement of embellishments, card design, etc. With a card fold, half the work is done for you! Plus a side step card like the one below is an awesome way to showcase your Bestie.

 Next, there are hundreds of fabulous Besties that Sherri has created. I have never seen such a selection like it before!  I have a Besties folder on my desktop with my Bestie collection. But I also have a second folder that is my current favorites. In it is the Besties that I just HAVE to do, or are going to be used for my DT assignments. That way I don's have to play hide and seek Bestie. Lolita (below) is my first Bestie and will ALWAYS be in my favorite folder!

Third, step out of the box...sometimes literally, lol. Besties are so versitile! You never know where you can be creative with your Bestie. I have seen crafters from all over the world on the various Bestie designs teams that have created mugs, plate, sheets, pictures, EVEN A TATTOO! all using Bestie digi and stamps!

Finally when all else fails, keep a picture of a favorite Bestie card design. One that you can go to and pull inspiration from like the one I have below. This is as Bestie fancy as I get, lol. A Bestie image, border punch, a piece of pattern paper, some flowers and butterflies equals a Bestie-ified work of art!



 You can find these digital stamps and many, many more at the Scrapbook Stamp Society or ETSY stores.

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Valou - "Vintage card"

Hello everybody! 

It's Valou250809 here for a new card to share with you.

I used a paper " StudioLight ", a " very Smart " collection and some paper " white Bazzil Cardstock ". Edges are used with "Old Distresser" and inked to the ink "Distress Walnut Stain".

I used an image " Sherri Baldy ", whom you can find HERE.

I colorized it in the following way: 

- Ink "Distress Tattered Rose" and "Distress Vintage Photo" for the skin.
- Ink "Distress Antique Linen" for hair.
- Ink "Distress Aged Mahogany". 
- Ink "Distress Faded Jeans".
- Ink "Distress Worm Lipstick".
- Ink "Distress Pumice Stone".
- Ink "Distress Mowed Lawn".

I cut the image and I stuck it on a die-cut " Spellbinders-Nestabilities - Majestic Ovals ".

For the decoration, I stuck two die-cuts "Feathers" realized with dies " Joy! Craft ".

Then, I added a big rose " Mahogany ", a blue carnation, a white rose (15 mm) and a pink tulip.

In the corner right of my card, I added a small embellishment which I realized with a mold "Martha Stewart" and some clay white. I covered it with brilliant varnish.

Here is for all the explanations!

I thank you for your passage here and I hope you a lovely day!
