Donut Face - The Alley Ways Stamps Sneak Peeks!

Hello!  It is Friday and sneak peek day, woot woot!!!!  I'm here to share a layout using the soon to be released Slurp Stamp Set... this set is perfect for the upcoming hot months of summer!  Take a peek at what I've done with the doughnut image and a sentiment found in the set...

Here is an upclose look at the donuts and the sentiment stamped onto an embellishment.

This layout came together so easily after I stamped lots of donuts and sprinkles all over my background paper.  I then stamped some donuts on separate cardstock, colored, sprinkled with stickles, and fussy cut.  I then randomly adhered them to my background with foam adhesive.  I loved the sentiment and wanted to add it as an embellishment so I stamped it with Staz-On Ink, and ta -da I have a premade embellishment with a personalized touch!

This layout was also inspired by the Scrappy Friends Sketch Challenge: 
and I'm linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes Challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have fun checking out all of the other peeks of this set on The Alley Way Stamps Blog... and don't forget you have a chance to win this set before it is released!!! Double yay!!!

Happy Crafting!

Many Thanks...

Hello!  Today I am sharing a card here and on the blog that was very much inspired by the amazing Jennifer McGuire... you can visit her blog to read and watch more on how the technique I use works.  After watching her video I immediately thought of the Daisy Center Medallion Die from, and knew it would be perfect for this technique...

The results are stunning in person! I loved how soft the inlaid image was, so I choose to keep it simple and stay all white, except for the sentiment which was stamped in the same color as the inlaid faux waterpressed image.

Supplies Used:
Daisy Center Medallion SweetCuts Die sc052
Shades™ Dye Ink Cube RASPBERRY
 Framed Handwritten Words Clear Stamp Set SS4406

Suit Up! V's Sweet Ideas Has A New Stamp Set!

That's right, there is a new stamp set now available at V's Sweet Ideas and it is perfect for any guy in your life!  Suit Up has a fun classy man's suit image, as well as some great sentiments that are interchangable... check it out...

So fun, right?  And here is what I've created with this set...

To create this card I started by stamping the suit image down the right edge of my cardbase and trimmed around them.  Next I stamped the image on several sheets of patterned paper, colored, fussy cut and adhered to the cardbase.  Finally, I added the sentiment and a trim of blue paper on the inside so the cut edge stood out more.

Make sure you stop her store as she also has some new ribbons and more things in, so make sure you check them out!

Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by!
