I have something a little different to share today.
I decided to use the super cute Roberto's Rascals Leprechaun stamp to create a tag for a sweet gift.

He's so adorable isn't he?!  
I also used the Lucky Rainbow Sentiments to emboss the word "lucky".
And I used the Layering Tags Die too.

I bought a bucket of M&M's and collected the colours and arranged them in the bottle to make a rainbow.

I thought it would make a great gift with a little note on the back saying how lucky we are to have such a great teacher.

Umbrella Cinnamon

I have another new stamp from CC Designs to share today.
This is Umbrella Cinnamon and she's having lots of fun splashing in puddles :)

My girls love these Cinnamon stamps!
My youngest said "She's so lovely but why do you always colour her in yellow?"
I hadn't realised I was! But I had a good excuse this time anyway.
"Because she's in a raincoat!"
Obviously raincoats can be any colour, but yes I coloured her with yellow.

So I took a look back through my cards to see if she was right.
The results were :
4 Cinnamon cards = 2 yellow, 2 other
So it depends how you look at it I guess, like a glass half full or half empty type thing :)

My colour and paper choices were also inspired by the mood board challenge at Scrapbook Boutique.
It's a board full of summery/beachy images.  So not like this stamp at all BUT it has lots of yellow beach umbrellas and yellow swimsuits against a cloudy blue sky. The quote on the board is perfect too!
So I made this image fit :)

Ingredients :
Stamps :Umbrella CinnamonLittle Pixie - Sunshine
Card : x-press it, suede, Homegrown (Pebbles), Oxford Lane (MME)
Ink : memento black, versamark
Other : white ep, Tilda lace die (Magnolia), copics

4 Leaf Puppy

It's new release time at CC Designs (well almost)!
I have a sneak peek for you today :)

This is 4 Leaf Puppy, and isn't he adorable?!

I've used a new stamp called Spotty Dotty too.  I just stamped it with white craft ink, so super easy and it made such a sweet background.

The sentiment is from a new set called Lucky Rainbow Sentiments.  It is actually one large sentiment but I decided to split it and put this part on the front of the card and the rest on the inside of the card with an uncoloured stamp of the puppy.
I must admit it's rare for me to stamp the inside of a card, I am a bit lazy in that department.  But I really like how this turned out.

Ingredients :

Stamps : 4 Leaf Puppy, Spotty Dotty, Lucky Rainbow sentiments
Card : x-press it, crumbcake, baked sugar
Ink : memento black, versafine, white craft
Other : MAC #14 die, Make a tag die, copics

Copics used :
W00, 1, 3, 5, 7
E 50
R 30
BG 10, 11, 72
YG 01, 08, 13, 17
G 21, 24

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges :

Simon Says Stamp : anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Monday : Pet's Corner
Word Art Wednesday : anything goes with sentiment
