Vintage Lady

Hello there,

I'm participating in Melissa's Red Rubber Inspirational #217 Spring Birthday that starts today.  You can find it HERE.  I chose to make a Spring Birthday card for a female.  I used 1920's Collage and Savvy Sayings  to create my card.  It's long and skinny measuring 4X8 1/2.  Added some twine, swirls, wash tape and punched out a few leaves. Colored with Copics.

Picture Perfect Selfie

Hi there,

I finally finished up a card for our granddaughter's birthday over the weekend.  I love this stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs and die set Here .  I knew I wanted to make her a birthday card and with phones being the in thing and selfies I thought it would be perfect for her!  The DP is from American Crafts Serendipity, background circles are Spellbinders, twine Maya Road, bubbles, Queen and Co. bling is from Zva. I tried a couple of new things when coloring this image.  I attended Copic coloring classes a few weeks ago and the hair and skin class focused on using bolder colors for skin so thats what I did. And I made a flower pattern on her sweater. Was very fun!

Life Is Good

Hello there,

I have this cute card to share today since it is almost Easter.  Well I have a dog driving a carrot car instead of a rabbit.  I made this little scene from a stamp set I got from one of my favorite stamp Company's The Cat's Pajama's.  You can find the set HERE .  It was so fun to stamp now that I have my MISTI stamping tool!  Do you have one??  I colored the scene with Copis and added a couple of carrot images from the latest paper collection from Graphic45, some orange paper twine and a little bling.  Happy Easter! Enjoy.
