Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! :) I hope you are all having a wonderful day and a wonderful week. Things are crazy busy here as usual, but I can't complain :) For my card today, I just had to ink up another new image from Sweet Pea Stamps. This one is illustrated by the fabulous ching chou kuik and is called Moonlight Siren (I made mine a "daylight" siren) :) I colored the image with copics and then added lots of Star Dust Stickles to the butterflies, her shawl, and the waves of the water. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. The design paper is by Kaisercraft (Gypsy Sisters collection). The sentiment is also from Sweet Pea Stamps. For some finishing touches I added a bow, dew drops, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?
Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! :) Hubby got the Internet issues sorted out yesterday with Verizon so we're back up and running. I have a quick post for you today (have to head in to work a bit early)
For my card today, I just had to ink up this adorable new image from Elaine Cox for Sweet Pea Stamps. This particular image is called Playing with Stars and I think it's adorable! I am determined to send all my friends and family Halloween cards this year so I'm getting an early start :)
I colored my image with copics and then added Stardust Stickles to the stars and to the cat's wings. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Basic Black and Perfect Plum). The design paper is from Recollections (from Michael's). I used my SU ticket corner punch in all the corners and added light lavender pearls. For some finishing touches, I added a ribbon, bow, and cat charm. What do you think?
Sorry to be so short today but must get to work. Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous day!
I'm so sorry for my lack of posting lately. This past week I had a trial here at work so I was super busy with that. Then, this weekend, our Internet went out at home (I'm typing this from work). Hubby is working with Verizon to fix the Internet issues this morning so hopefully it will be back up tonight. I'll be back as soon as I can with some cards to share. Hope you are all having a fabulous day!
Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! I hope all had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a great start. I have a quick post for you today, I've got lots to get done at work so I better make this quick.
For my card today, I inked up this super cute image by Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. This image is called Little Aud and I think she's super cute. I colored the image with copics and then cut it out with my circle nestabilities. While the image was still in the nestability, I sponged around the image with SU's Bashful Blue ink. Next I added Glossy Accents to her eyes and Stardust Stickles to the flowers. I next created my card base out of SU cardstock (Bashful Blue and Perfect Plum). The design paper is from MME (Penny Lane collection). For some finishing touches, I added blue dew drops and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?
Well, that's it from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! :)
Hi everyone and Happy4thofJuly to all my American blogging friends. I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. I have a quick and simple 4th of July card to share with you all today.
For my card, I decided to ink up this adorable Pixie from CC Designs (All that Scraps). I colored her with copics (hair: Y21, E31, E33; skin: E00, E11, E13; red: R35, R37, R38; Blue: B32, B34, B37) and then cut her out with scissors and added Stardust Stickles to her wings. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Bordering Blue and Real Red). The design paper is also from Stampin Up. I cut the ovals out using my oval nesties and I ran the top oval through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder. I then attached the pixie with dimensionals. What do you think?
I'm so sorry I'm so far behind in commenting on all your beautiful creations. With work, the holiday weekend, and yes, my nose stuck in another great book (just finished The Forgotten Garden and The House at Riverton, both by Kate Morton . . . both are must reads!) I've managed to get very behind, but I promise to catch up tomorrow. I have tomorrow off and no plans so hopefully I'll get lots of crafting done too. Have a wonderful day everyone and thanks so much for stopping by. See you back here tomorrow.
