Wild Daffodil

Pin It
Hi everyone,
 It was a very quiet day here so I rested and then colored this cute image and made it into an easel card, my first easl card. It was easier than I thought it would be.  I choose mostly pinks for this card so I could put it into the Link It Up For Pink Challenge. The image is from Lacy Sunshine Heather Valetin called Lizabeth Wild Daffodil. With the daffodil I thought this would be perfect for a cancer digi. I printed her onto neenah cs and colored her with copics. The papers are from CGD studio DSP stack. This stack is all patterns and shades of pink. I added some pink pearl brads and prima roses. The greenery is from the cricut cartridge floral shoppe. I added ribbon with another brad to finish the card. I will enter this card into these challenges.

Hi everyone,

We finally have sunshine today, it makes me feel wonderful. I am using a Lacy Sunshine image today from her new set of designs called moody girls. This one is a free image to join into the challenge. She so adorable and reminds me of spring and Easter.  I printed her onto neenah CS and the rest of the papers are DCWV. How can you tell they are my favorite. I used a spellbinder to cut the image out then doodled around the image and background. I added some flower centers, a stick pin, rhinestones and ribbon. I even added some dimples to her face. At least I hope they look like dimples, LOL! I will add this card onto these challenges.

Pickles Dinosaur Ride

Hi everyone,

I love this image but then I love all of Heather Valetins Lacy Sunshine stamps. I did have fun with this one trying to use different colors for the dinosaur. I printed it our on neenah card stock and colored the image with copics. The yellow is much brighter in person than it shows on the photo. All DSP is DCWV. I added natural twine and three yellow brads. I also added some stitching around the image. This will make a really cute boys birthday card. I am very pleased with how cute this card turned out. I will enter this card into these challenges.

Happy Birthday Mouse 2

Hi everyone,

I am posting another card for the fariess blog challenge. Our sponsor is Melnen's Design Stamps. I am using Meljen's Design Birthday Mouse. I used a two circle punches of different sizes and punched out the mouse. With the larger circle I cut little slits all around the circle to make it look more like a flower. The effect isn't quite as good as I was imagining but it will do. I colored the image with copics and all the papers are DCWV. I added a green twine and some brown stitch marks. I will add this card into these challenges.

Dream Angel

Pin It
Hi everyone,
I am busy trying to get my craft room organized so it will be easier to see what I have to use. I knew I had a lot of supplies but really I have enough for at least 3 people. I am really finding it hard to decide what to get rid of. Lots to do yet. Well on to this weeks card. At 613 Avenue Create our challenge this week Our sponsor is Bugaboo stamps and the sketch below is optional.

 I am using this cute image Sassy Gal Angel. She is printed on neenah white and colored with copics B00 E35,33,31,00,000,21. The base card is white and the DSP is from the DCWV Whimsy stack.
 There was jsut enough of the peach to brighten up the card. I cut the banner out with blue and notched the ends out. I doodled around the card base and the image then added some white ribbon. It needed just one more touch so I took our a bottle of white foam paint and added it to the clouds. It did take some time to dry but it looks really good. I will add this card into these challenges.

Papers - Recollections white, DCWV whimsy stack, neenah white,

Double Trouble

Hi everyone,

Today's card is one of my favorite images by Heather Valetin called Maddie and Clover Christmas shopping. She was printed onto neenah solor white CS and colored with copics. She was so much fun to color. I just love her little pet Clover. As an added touch I added clover image to the shopping bag. Isn't he cute! I am going to use this card for a friends Birthday.  I added some flowers from my stash and just realized it is one of a few that I have created and  I didn't add a ribbon. I guess I didn't think it need one. LOL! I cut the image with a spellbinders. The papers are all from DCWV. I will enter this card into these challenges.
