Hoppy Hello!

So, I am not sure if you have heard of "action wobble" before, but it is kind of the latest coolest thing I have seen in a bit! No link yet, but its "coming soon", so keep checking back with us!

I had so much fun using this bunny (D015, Chocolate Bunnies). I stamped this lil guy with pink ink, and then used LT Pink Fuzzy Stuff and cut him out. I affixed him to the card using the action wobble which means that he hops around and wobbles! Its so fun! The fuzzy stuff makes him feel like velvet! 
The card itself is made using the Pop-A-Top 17 (exclusive to The Stamp Doctor) die which is made to coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders, S5-025the Simple Sentiments 2 and Simple Sentiments stamps sets for the border and sentiment. The brads are ALSO available through The Stamp Doctor. 

Hoppy Spring, and Hoppy Easter to you all!!

Easter Flowers

Hello TSD Patients,

Melissa here, I have a pretty card to share with you today that may have an egg on it, but it doesn't necessarily have to be for Easter.  It doesn't have an Easter greeting.


My card features:

E012 Filigree Oval
TSD-CL007 Simple Sentiments 3
Center Step Card Die
Bottle Cap & Flower Die set
S4-319 Lattice Rectangles

I found that it's super easy to decorate this Center Step card with washi tape.  The ink I used is a Distress Ink by Ranger, Peeled Paint.

I hope enjoy my card and that it inspires you to pick up any one of the dies (or all of them) and come up with amazing cards.  Have a great day!

Flower Pop-a-Top

Good morning everyone,  Steph here again using some awesome products from  The Stamp Doctor.

Have you tried the Pop-a-Top dies yet?  These dies are exclusive to The Stamp Doctor and coordinate with Spellbinders dies.  Pop-a-Top 17 coordinates with Spellbinders Labels 17 and Pop-a-Top 18 coordinates with Spellbinders Labels 18.

The Pop-a-Top package has instructions for using these dies and they are quite easy to follow.  Why not pick up your Pop-a-Top today and give them a try. 

 I created this Z-fold card using Pop-a-Top 17 in conjunction with Labels 17.

I love layers so there are a number of different layers on this card.



The sentiment is from B101 Beautiful Flower w/birds, stamped and die cut to fit Labels 17 and then added with foam adhesives for dimension.


I used A148 SM Sunflower Bouquet to stamp a portion of the sunflowers along the bottom of the card. 



Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to pick up your Pop-a-Tops from the store.

Lovely Pop-A-Tops

I had a lot of fun making these cheerful Pop-A-Tops. The dies used to create these cards are called Pop-A-Top 18 and they are exclusive to The Stamp Doctor. They were created to coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders, S4-310, Labels 18. Its a beautiful match! 


I am sure you know by now that I really dig these butterflies. More specifically, C008, Butterflies, set of 3. This time, I also used a couple of sentiments. B043 MED, Butterfly Wishes. and C084, Just Living. 

To give the butterflies dimension, I stamped them on separate cardstock and used black and blue glitters (also available through The Stamp Doctor) and finally, cut the butterfly out. I stamped another butterfly onto the card itself to give it a shadowed effect and finally, adhered the body of the butterfly (only) with megatack onto the base butterfly. Let the megatack dry, and fold the wings up to create the dimensional effect. 

These sweet cards are quick, but really do "pop". Hope you are inspired to create! Happy "almost spring"!

Hippity Hoppity

Good morning everyone,  Steph here again using some awesome stamps from  The Stamp Doctor.

It's almost Easter, are you planning on creating Easter cards for friends and family? 

These stamps - F001 Peter Cottontail and A035 Hippity Hoppity -    are so much fun to use. 




I colored this rabbit with Zig markers in shades of pinks.

 
I left this rabbit white and just colored his tummy and ears with Zig Markers.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.

Lovely Butterflies

So, recently, I have been playing around with the Doctor and she has been teaching me new ways to use the dies from The Stamp Doctor.

One of the newest dies at the store are the Pop-A-Top dies. For this card I cut the card stock a bit differently and used the Pop-A-Top 17 on the side of the card vs the top, and created this double fold side pop card.

For the boarder on the front of the card I used Simple Sentiments 2, made to match with the Pop-A-Top 17 dies and Spellbinders Labels 17, S5-025. The butterflies are C008, "Butterfly Set Of 3), and the sentiment on the inside of the card is Simple Sentiments 3. The flowers were created using the Bottle Cap and Flower Die Set, available exclusively at The Stamp Doctor. The dots on the inside are A137, "Dippity Dots.

This card was so fun to make and it made me so happy! I hope it inspires you to create something amazing!

You Brighten my day

Good morning everyone,  Steph here today using some awesome stamps from  The Stamp Doctor.

I created a  quick and easy card that just looks more involved that it is.  And this month we are working with green since St. Pat's day is not too far off.

I created a 5" square card from green cardstock.  A sentiment from Simple Sentiments was stamped on pattern paper and cut into a square, then 3 additional squares were cut.  Each square was then matted with green and black cardstock and placed on the card.




I added some bling to finish.it off.

Thanks for stopping by today.

You're Amazing!

Good Morning and Happy Monday,

Today is my day to post on the The Stamp Doctor blog and it's a new month, so we have a new theme.  I chose the color theme - Green.

I am so excited about today's card, let me tell you!  Dr. Mechele surprised me with some dies and coordinating stamps this past week and I was doing the happy dance playing with them yesterday morning.  What fun!  And so easy!

My card features Pop-a-Top 17, Simple Sentiments 2, Simple Sentiments 3 and Bottle Cap/Flower die set.  All can be found on HERE.


Pop-a-Top 17 & Simple Sentiments 2 coordinates perfectly with Spellbinders Labels 17, which I don't have, but I was able to use the Pop-a-Top die, make my cut and the flip it matching it up as best as I can and running thru my machine again.  It worked!  So I was able to cut the mat out of olive green card stock to fit perfectly on the popped top.  Then I stamped the sentiment and hand cut it out.

And I am a genius.... OK so Mechele probably did this on purpose, but I discovered the spirograph flowers (both full and half) in the Simple Sentiments 3 set fit the larger zig-zag die in the Bottlecaps/Flowers die set.

Then I decorated the inside.....


Well, that's it.  I am so happy with my card share today.  I hope you lovey it, too!

Hi!

Good Morning TSD Patients,

I do hope you're all doing well.  I have a really fun card to share with you, but please don't laugh.  So I thought I knew how to color pansies, and well, it's not exactly my forte.


However, it does feature great colors and great supplies available from The Stamp Doctor.  My card features:  G026 Pansy Circle, S6-006 Branching Out dies and EL-035 M-Bossabilities.  The sentiment was created from some very old and very neglected dies.

I do hope you like the card.  Have a super day!

You ROCK!

Okay, so how many girlie, fluttery cards have you seen come across this blog? Like, a LOT? Guess what? Boys have events too! Its just a lot harder to find stamps for boys than it is for girlie. Thank GOODNESS for these awesome stamps from The Stamp Doctor!

I had to have these. Seriously. Check out the entire line of Rockin Stamps here.  I have a boy. A boy who loves instruments. These stamps are amazing!

I had a lot of fun using the center step die from the Stamp Doctor as well. They have an entire line of amazing card dies that are exclusive only to the the Stamp Doctor. The center step is one of those. Its SO easy to use. I used to cut out stuff like this with an exacto knife and a prayer. I LOVE these dies!


So I used 3 different music sets to make this amazing center step card. Well, I like it, anyway. I also used black micro-glitter as well as black sequins, also from the stamp doctor. The paper pack I used is called, "hey kid" and is from Echo Park. My goodness, I love that paper pack! 

Hope this inspires you to try something new with your card making! I used to be scared of these kinds of cards but now that I have the die? I see myself making a LOT more in the near future!
