All Dressed Up Stamps' NEW RELEASE for June!!


Here in Illinois, the farmers all around us are working in the fields and the hobby farmers are working in their gardens....trying to keep ahead of the drought like weather!  I always love it when our resident artist at All Dressed Up, Wendy Burns, offers up some outdoor images to the DT!

This week I'm using the image "Wellie Boots" !  I'm often seen wearing rubber boots out into the gardens so it was perfect~ I picked colors my daughter likes (she lives on a farm also) as she will probably get this card to frame.  I use Copics in my work then stamping the sentiment on using my Mr. Misti.  The image was fancy cut so that I could take advantage of some landscape 6x6 paper pack image.  Great ones out there.

There are 2 other New Release images that were released today and then a month long Challenge that will start again on the 15th of each month.  Come join us for lot of creation!  Thanks for looking!  Carolyn

Down on the Farm with All Dressed Up New Release

Wow, It's already time to Welcome Spring into our lives and for this New Release over at All Dressed Up, I got to use "Spring Lamb" on my card!!  Since we live out in the country, I always get so excited to use an image I can relate to.  The original image includes the country girl perched on a wooden fence with a Lamb and Chicken in the pasture.

The rest of the "scene" was created using a combination of several stamps from my stash and lots of copic coloring. I also cut out some chickens from some Graphic 45 paper for dimension.

 On the inside (I always complete the inside with coordinating paper) I used the chicken paper along with a special sentiment block.

I hope you like it as well as I do!!!  Be sure to check out the ADU Shop with all the wonderful images and enter our Monthly Challenge coming up on the 15th--you might win some free images with your creation!  We'd love to get inspired by you!  Thanks for looking!
I'd like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

NEW RELEASE time at All Dressed Up Stamps!


Over at All Dressed Up Stamps, you can tell that Spring is right around the corner!  Our latest releases from our resident Artist, Wendy Burns, has drawn some seasonal images for all of us to use!!  This creation is called Spring Bike Ride and was such fun.
I colored him with multiple Copics, then fancy cut him out, added some clouds dies and a wooden sentiment.  The beauty of using a landscape 6x6 set/page from Paper Rose is that I was easily able to incorporate my ADU image.  I wish I could take credit for the gorgeous watercolor landscape print but I must be honest.

The inside of my card is just as beautiful, again using one of the other PR pieces of art.  I used one of those cardstock sentiments from a different series from my stash. 
We would love to see your creations in our monthly Challenge that starts on the 15th of each month and gives you a chance to wish some ADU Images as a prize so check us out!  Thanks for Looking!

Masculine Happy Birthday Card

  Happy Saturday everyone!  Wanted to share with you a Masculine Happy Birthday card that I made from some new papers and stamps from the 2023 SU catalog.  The series is called "Ready to Ride" and has some fantastic shiny embossed papers, Flames, road/tire marks, and much more.  

This is actually a "sort-of" cased card from their online shop, although there are several different ways that I chose to compose the card.  I used not only the papers but the stamp set also.


I hope you will be encouraged to check out the manly "goods" and start creating--I'm ALWAYS looking for some ideas for the men in the family!

Challenge at ALL DRESSED UP STAMPS--Think Love...

It won't be long before it's VALENTINE'S DAY so I'm using this perfect ADU stamp "Be My Valentine" for the ADU's January Challenge.

Using Copics to color and shade the flowers and bird, I also Blinged the card up with lots of iridescent sequins.  In order to accent the flower feature, I cut around the group, showing off the intense blue dotted paper inside. 

I crafted a pink heart to hide under the front cover and then used a stamp from my stash for the sentiment. 

This is a month long challenge and there are ADU images for the winners, so get creating and inspire us with your creations!  We can't wait to see them before February the 14th!

Cookie Girl digital image from All Dressed Up Stamps-NEW RELEASE

This is one of the 3 New Release images offered for December over at All Dressed Up Stamps!  She is called "Cookie Girl" and was a lot of fun to color and create with!  I really wish I could show you a better photo that shows the rich purple that is on both the design paper and cardstock but I can't seem to get my camera or editing program to cooperate!

I used a gingerbread cookie design paper for the top paper, cardstock for the bottom section, and used the backside of the DP to create a "ribbon" look across the middle.  I used 3D dimensional foam dots to highlight the image.  I always like to finish the inside of my cards, with lots of room for personal messages.  Sentiments are from clear stamps from my stash. 

Be sure and also check out the ADU Challenge that runs for a month, from the 14th to the 14th.  We'd love to see your creations and it's a great way to add to your digital library!  Can't wait to see you!
