Studio G Easter Challenge

Come join the fun and create an Easter treat holder using your Studio G stamps! All the details are here.

Studio G stamps are those cute little sets that you may have seen at Michael's or purchased from Pez-A-Doodle Designs for about $1 each. SOME people collect these little gems and then (gasp!) don't even use them much. Well, now it's time to get out those little darlings and use them to participate in a fun challenge! In fact, there's a whole series of challenges that inspire you to use your Studio G stamps (or discover them if you haven't purchased any yet).

So grab your ink, dust off those Studio G's, and let's get stamping!

Funky Farm


Ok, so I went a little crazy with this card! I love to paper piece MFT stamps and I hadn't used this set for a while so I was going to color the animals but paper piece the woman. WELL, I started looking at my DP and wondered what it would be like to paper piece the animals with DP.


The cow and the pig are popped out on dimensionals and I made the pig's tail with a piece of pink wire. The sky was made with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and I tore then distressed the edge of the green paper to look like grass. The clouds are Magnolia stamps. The paper on the woman and the horse are Basic Grey, the paper on the pig is Memorybox, and I'm not sure about the paper on the cow. The card stock is all Bazzill.

Do You Have PMS?

I couldn't resist that title! Today I used a faerie stamp and sentiment stamp from Paper Makeup Stamps (PMS).

After I finished it I wished I would have used a border punch or something on the top of the box to give it a little extra touch, but it was already taped together. I painted the image with watercolor paints and added Stickles to her wings, even though you can't really see it in the pictures. I just love this image and the sentiment!
Thanks for stopping by!

You Oughta Be In Pictures



Ugh, this card gave me FITS from the very beginning! I liked the idea I had to use the negative strip to make it look like the mice already took some pictures, but it just did not turn out the way I wanted it to. Oh well.


I used Diamond Glaze on the lens and flashbulb and pink Stickles on the ears, noses, and tongue of the mice.


I stamped the design three extra times and popped up the lens so it looks like a true telephoto lens.



I took a stamped image and reduced it in size on my copier, colored the mice, and then cut them out and put them in the film strip.

I used Prismacolor pencils to color the images and Glitter Dots from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design.

My Easter Basket



When I saw the name of this stamp set (Hangin' With My Peeps), all I could think about was the marshmallow Peeps. It was just calling out to be the image for an Easter basket!


I colored the image with Prisma pencils then added pink flocking to her sweater and yellow flocking to the chicks to make them fuzzy. I created this for a challenge that required the use of buttons, so I added miscellaneous buttons in creme, pink, and green to the handle of the basket.

Thanks for visiting!
