What's Up Buttercup?

Hi everyone and Happy Monday :)  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Spring seems to be here to stay . . . it's about time!!! :)  We had a nice laid back weekend, can't beat those :)  Isaac is teething big time so he's been a little fussy, but he is sleeping well so we can't complain too much.

I have a super fun card to share with you today so I'll get right to it.  I just love Facebook.  I have so many wonderful crafty friends that I have gotten to know through Facebook and I have discovered so many amazing stamp artists because of them :)  My card today showcases a gorgeous digi stamp from Time for Tea Designs.  I just LOVE her images.  She just had a huge release last weekend so make sure to check them out.  This particular image is called Chin Up Buttercup and I just LOVE her!  She reminds me when I was younger.  Did you ever pick Buttercups when you were little and place them under your friend's chin to see if they were "butter?"  This was really big when I was young :)  Basically, if you held the Buttercup flower under someone's chin and the skin under the chin glowed yellow, that person was "butter."  I don't remember exactly what being "butter" meant, but I remember it was a good thing :)  Like you were cool or something :)  I think everyone was "butter" because of the way the light reflected off the flower :)  Anyway, this image just brought back some fun childhood memories and I had so much fun with it.  I of course colored the image with my copics.  Here are the colors I used:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Dress and Shoes: R81, R83, R85, R89
Eyes (and dress sash): B91, B93, B95, B99
Buttercups: Y21, Y23, Y26
Shadow around image: W2, W4, W6, blender

I created my card base out of SU cardstock.  My DP is from an old Basic Grey pack I've been hoarding.  The accents in the corners are from a die from La La Land Crafts (love their dies).  The swirls are from Memory Box Dies (I get mine at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design - these dies are fabulous, they cut perfectly and are so intricate, love them!).  I added a bow and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches.  The sentiment was computer generated. 

Here are a couple more views:

Well, that's it from me today.  Thank you so much as always for stopping by.  Have a wonderful Monday and a wonderful week! :)

Gues Design for Sherri Baldy Stamps

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday! :)  I have a quick post to share with you today.  I was asked a while back to create some cards using the adorable images from Sherri Baldy Designs.  Of course I jumped at the chance, I think her designs are adorable.  Here's my card:

She was of course colored with copic markers.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Dress: R81, R83, R85
Shadow around image: W2, W4, Blender
My DP is from MME (Blush collection).  I added a ribbon from SU and some pearls.  The swirls in the corners are a Memory Box die.  A rose from Wild Orchid Crafts finishes it off.
