Under the Sea

Hello Sami Stamps fans!  Rae Ann here to bring you this week's Fun Friday post.  I am using one of the newest releases, Roses Under the Sea.  You can find her in the shop with her sister, Flowers Under the Sea.


She was colored with Copic markers and I used the Silhouette to cut her out.  I kept the background pretty tone on tone to make it look like she was under water.

You still have time to enter our challenge.  The theme this month is to use flowers and this image is perfect for the challenge!  You have to use a Sami Stamps image to enter, but you can usually find a freebie in the shop.

If you are on Facebook, pop in to the Sami Stamps group and share your creations with us.  We would love to see them!

Fun Friday with Grandma Bonnie! It's a Beauty!

My intention was to create a Mother's Day card today.
Well, once i colored up Sami Stamps image, Rose Beauty.
I found that my plan had to change.

This image called "Rose Beauty" reminds me of "Beauty" from the Beauty and the Beast.  
Simply because i decided to add yellow.  
What do you think, isn't she gorgeous?

She would still make a lovely Mother's Day card!

Don't forget we have our May challenge going on. 
All you have to do is use a Sami Stamps image and use "flowers"!
Click here to find the challenge. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

New Release: "Flowers Under The Sea" and Sami Stamps challenge #49





Joining us today as a guest designer we have our winner from Sami Stamps Challenge #48 
Diane Louise!





"Hello my name is Diane Louise and I am delighted to be invited to be a guest designer for May’s Showcase posting here at Sami Stamps. 

I would like to say thank you very much to Sami for giving me this beautiful mermaid digital stamp for me to use.  I really enjoyed making my card and joining Sami’s design team.

Here’s a little bit about me – I live in the North West of England with my lovely Hubby and 2 fabulous grown up children, along with our beautiful big bundle of gorgeousness, Mutley, our black Labrador dog, who brings so much fun to our household.  

I have been paper crafting since 1998 when a friend introduced me to the world of decoupage; I fell in love with card making and very quickly became addicted to my hobby... The best thing though was opening my Blog called ‘Diane Louise's Favourite Cards & Gifts’ and finding Blogland and challenge blogs, which inspired me to try new techniques and styles of cards. I have made so many lovely crafty friends along the way. "  



And as always, the design team has put together some beautiful inspiration for this month's release!

Fun Friday with Emily!!

Hello and welcome back to another Fun Friday!!
Today I am sharing a super simple and adorable card using an older Sami Stamps image, but one that I absolutely love because in it's simplicity, there is so much that can be done with it!
This is the bowtie from the Striped Tie Set and I just love it!  It's the perfect bowtie!

I decided to print it off several times and colored it up in some fun masculine colors before adding it to am embossed background.  I also wanted to add a bit more embossing since that is our current theme for April, which you still have a few days left to enter!  So I heat embossed my sentiment and flagged the ends.  Then arranged everything straight down the center of my card and added a few little black dots for extra detail. 

And that's it!  Really simple and still adorable!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a fabulous weekend!! <3

Fun Friday with Rae Ann

Hello!  It is my turn to provide you with a little inspiration today.  I have used Flying Girl from the new release.  She was colored with Copic markers and I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut her out.


In case you missed the post about the new release, all of the new stamps are below.  They are so much fun!


Our current challenge ends very soon, but you can still play along by using blue and a Sami Stamps image.  You have a chance to win some images, so why not create something?!

Fun Friday with Kathy!

Hi Friends! 

I've got a "fun fold" card to share today using one our latest releases, called Flying Boy. I've made an easel card, using an easel die. The cool thing is that it will lie flat and fit in a regular envelope. The first picture shows it standing like a normally folded card. 


 In the second picture, you can see it standing in the easel style. 




Here is a peek at the whole latest release! They are all so much fun.


And, don't forget there is still time to enter into our current challenge #47 "Use Blue".


Thanks for stopping by today. Hope  you have a fantastic weekend!

Fun Friday with Emily!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
I couldn't let today pass by without sharing a fun shamrock card with you!!
I really really really wanted to make that shamrock wobble...I tried so hard to get some wire attached to the back...guys...it just wasn't having it this time.  I'll have to try again later.

But I kept this card overall very simple.  I did some fun stripey stamping for the background with a few extra fun bits embossed in white and gold.  There is also some gorgeous gold splatters to check out on that background too.  It's so fun to splatter that stuff, though I forget about it sometimes.  But it really does make a huge impact on a fun card like this!

Nothing fancy with my Little Shamrock Dancer.  I colored her in with pencils and cut her out with a stitched frame so I could mount the whole panel up on some fun foam for great dimension.  A simple embossed sentiment finished off the card!!

Have a fabulous St. Patrick's Day!  Be safe!!
<3 Emily
