Enjoy the Little Things


Happy Thursday! Just wanted to pop in and share my favorite card thus far for 2015! This little gem is from The Greeting Farm. It was a freebie digi image sent in their newsletter, so if you are not signed up...what are you waiting for? I printed her out and colored her with Copic Markers. I made a shaker card, because that's what you do when you have a sh*tload of sequins LOL.


I added some Glossy Accents on the starfishes adorning her hair. Also I wanted to try this white dot technique that I've seen other artists' colored images. Love love love the look! You best believe that this will happen again. The leaves and background colors are created with Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays. I wanted lots of shimmer.


So there is my mermaid shaker card. My all time fave so far, if I didn't mention that already. I love the vibrant blues and purples. Confession, I always wanted to be a mermaid, hehehe.

Thanks for stopping by and I do have another card for you tomorrow! Have a fabulous day!

XOXO

Good Morning! Here is my card for the new challenge up over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog. I created the base of this card using dies from By DIEzynes - Half Oval/ Pierced Ovals/Side Step Card. The Half Oval Die was positioned a little bit more to the left, it leaves me space to the right for embellishments.

I'm using the image Savannah Has a Crush from Whimsy Stamps. She is colored with my Copics. The oval frame is the Pierced Ovals and the designer paper is Simple Stories - Vintage Bliss.


I used the Side Step Card rectangle insert dies to do the inside of the card. From the stamp set "XOXO" is one of the sentiments included in the set. I finished the card with some yellow twine and flowers to match the color scheme.



Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. Come join us over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog!

MCT 40th Edition Release Blog Hop


Hello and WELCOME to the MCT 40th Edition Release Blog Hop! If you are going in the hop order, you should be coming from Veronica's Blog. Since I missed out on Day 3 of the Sneak Peaks, my project is showcasing the "Hello Frame Dies".

"Hello Frame Dies"

Supplies:
MCT - Hello Frame Dies
Echo Park - We Are Family 6x6 Paper Pad
QuicKutz Metal Sheets
Doodlebug - Beetle Black Pearls

I created a masculine card. The designer paper had this bicycle image that went perfect with the MCT Way To Go Stamp Set die. The MCT Hello Frame Dies coordinates with the MCT Stitched 3x4 Journal Die. The bicycle is partially cut and I like how it just peeks out in the background. I first cut the frame in black cs, then again with some metal sheets that I had. I snipped off the "Hello" in the metal sheet and layered it over the original word. Just to throw it in, I added the "hashtag" from the MCT Social Media Dies, again cut from the metal sheet. Lastly, I added some black pearls on the bottom corner.

I hope you've enjoyed the Blog Hop so far, you have one more stop to make and that's Vicky's Blog.  I had so much fun creating with the New Release and hope that you all have been inspired with all the fabulous creations from the Design Team.

MCT Sneak Peeks Day 4


Hello Thursday! I missed out on yesterday's sneaks but i'm back with Sneak Peek Day 4 of the My Creative Time 40th Edition Release! Wasn't that "Hello Frame Die" fabulous?! Okay here's the last of the Sneak Peaks and we saved the best for last, well I think.

Today we are showcasing two sets: "Mini Chalkboard Tags" and "Milk Carton Die". 

Supplies:
MCT - Mini Chalkboard Tags
MCT - Milk Carton Die
MCT - To A Cute Little Chickie
DCWV Sunday Afternoon
White CS
Sequins
Copic Markers
Chickie: Y13/Y17/Y21

Ummm, hello? Isn't this freakin cute! I cut the "Milk Carton Die" using white cs and I layered designer paper all around. I used the "Fun Stitched Edges Dies" on the top of the paper and the "Stitched Grass Die" layered around the box. Not only is it a treat box, I did a little shaker in the front using the "To A Cute Little Chickie" stamp and coordinating die set. You'll notice that most of my projects all coordinate because I am using pretty much the same designer paper collection. 

Stayed with the Easter theme and used the sentiment "Happy Easter" from "Mini Chalkboard Tags" with coordinating die. For the closure at the top, I used the "Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow Die" and adhered it to a small clothespin.

So there is my last project for the Sneak Peeks but I still have one more to share tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!

MCT Sneak Peeks Day 2


Happy Tuesday! I'm back with Sneak Peek Day 2 of the My Creative Time 40th Edition Release! If you liked the Chickie set, then you'll love this, purr-fect for you cat lovers!

Today we are showcasing this set: "You Had Me At Meow!". 

Supplies:
MCT - You Had Me At Meow!
DCWV The Pets Stack
Black CS
Copic Markers
Kitten: B00/B0000/C1/R81
Bow: R27/R39

I've been meaning to use this Pet Stack from DCWV designer paper and it goes fabulous with this stamp set, also it has coordinating dies. The kitten is colored with my Copic Markers and highlighted with my Wink of Stella Clear Pen. The heart dies are from MCT - Stitched Scallop Heart Dies. For the middle inner heart, I stamped the little fish bone along the edge. The set also comes with a bow image and coordinating die, which I adhered to her cute little tail. There is a sentiment "You had me at Meow" in the set, but I masked off "meow" and stamped the other "MEOW" image in it's place. Hahaha does that make sense?

Hope you liked my card and that you are enjoying all the other Designers' creations. As always, thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday

 

Happy Sunday! Today a new challenge is up at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog. "Anything Goes" is the theme. Everybody needs a Birthday Card in their card stash right? I created this Shabby card using soft pink, cream and green colors. 

The layered designer papers are distressed around the edges. I love to add cheese cloth for a more delicate and whimsy feel. The "happy" and "birthday" is from Mama Elephant - Happy Everything and coordinating dies. The base of the card is kraft cs and I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen.

I used the newly released R43's (that gorgeous pink flower), R40's Paper Flower, G2's Curly Roses, R4's 1/2" flowers and R2's 1/4" roses. Lots of flower styles but they all coordinate well with one another.

Thanks for stopping by and come join our challenge over at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog!
