A sister’s love

Hi friends!

The bond between sisters is one that lasts a lifetime! But definitely not talking about the secrets we share…lol

This little cutie called Bailey with Flower is from The Paper Nest Dolls.

I printed two of the same image (flipping one to face the opposite direction) on plain white card stock and then colored them the same so they look like twin sisters.

HELLO THERE

Hello friends!

I am back today with another cutie from All Dressed Up Stamps. This little sweetheart is called Dog Walker. I absolutely love that sweet little braid she has in her hair…so utterly adorable!!

Walking with our dogs was my intention 5 years ago when we got two Mini Australian Shepherd puppies. They however do not like to walk on the country roads next to the cars…and they eat things faster than I can see what they put in their mouths. So needless to say I still walk by myself.

I printed this cutie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R00
Hair: E57, E55, E53
Dress & Boots: BG13, BG11, BG10, BV20, Y00, BV23, R43, RV42, R30, R00, C4, C2
Backpack: E44, E43, E42, E41, E40, BV23, R43, R30
Bunny: C4, C2, C0, R20
Dogs: E34, E31, E30
Grass: YG67, YG63, YG61, G43, G40

The dies are from Sunny Studio Stamps and Magnolia DooHickeys. I layered the flowers together and added a single stamen to make the flowers look a little more 3D.

Miss You

Hello crafty friends!

I don’t know about you, but I really miss my family and friends!

My project today features some beautiful dies from Crafty Meraki’s new release. The fabulous flower die is called Kelsey Meraki Flora Para-Dies. I paired the flowers with the Timeless Frames Mini Slimline Die and a sentiment from the To-tail-ly Awesome Stamp Set.

My card base is slightly bigger than the largest die from the Timeless Frames Mini Slimline Die to accomodate the layered look.

The flowers were die-cut from Watercolour paper and were colored with the following watercolour pencils.

~Derwent Watercolour Pencils~
Gunmetal 69
Olive Green 51
Grass Green 47
May Green 48
Golden Brown 59
Naples Yellow 7
Rose Madder Lake 21

Once my flowers were dry I added a small piece of cardstock behind the center of the flowers so the cutout portion could be glued down. I then punched an 1/8″ hole in the center of each flower so I could glue the stamens in place.

I curled some of the edges of the flowers before attaching them to my card with double sided foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment from the To-tail-ly Awesome Stamp Set, matted it with matching green card stock and attached that to my card with foam tape. The sequins were attached with Ranger Ink Glossy Accents.

You’re SPOOK-tacular

Hello everyone!

I am back today with a little cutie from Streamside Studios digital new release stamp set called My Little Pet Ghost.

When I saw this darling image I envisioned her in a fancy pink dress, so that is what she is dressed in today. I had SO much fun adding the flowers.

I printed this sweetheart on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00
Hair: 100, C8, C6, C4, C2
Dress: BV20, RV25, RV23, RV21, R00, R000 – 100. C4, C2, White Gel Pen
Grays: 100, C8, C6, C5, C4, C3, C2, C1, C00

I love the cute little animal ghosts from this set and wanted to be sure to use them in this project. I found a creative way to incorporate them into my design by creating an arrangement with them and printing them on pink paper. I LOVE how it turned out!!

The dies are from Spellbinders, My Favorite Things, Gina Marie Designs, Impression Obsession, and Cheery Lynn.

Hello and welcome!

Today I am sharing a beautiful card made with gorgeous products from the Crafty Meraki store. The beautiful flower dies are from Crafty Meraki and are called Chloe Meraki Flora Para-Dies. They were super easy to color and make such a statement on this card!

Sometimes it’s the totally unexpected creation that just grabs your attention. This card is one of them for me.

I die cut the Chloe Meraki flower dies on X-Press It Blending Card and colored them with the following markers.

~Copics~
Greens: G94, YG03, YG11, YG21
Pinks: R22, RV42, R11, R00, R000

I started with an A2 size top folding card base. The products I used on my project (listed below) are from the Crafty Meraki Store.

PinkFresh Studios – You Are my Favorite Stamp Set
Waffle Flower Stamps – A2 Lacy Layers Die
Honey Bee Stamps – Lovely Layers Heart Vine Die/Honey Cuts

You Make Me Feel Chirpy

Hello friends!

Do you have a certain someone that makes you feel chirpy? I have been with my husband for 41 years and I would still snuggle up on a perch with him…lol!

My card today was created with the most adorable Toucans from Crafty Meraki. These super sweet little sweethearts are from the Tou the Tropics Stamp Set.

I stamped this adorable image on Neenah Solar White paper with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with the following colored pencils.

~Prismacolor Pencils~
Black: 935, 1067, 1065, 1063, 1054
Blues: 208, 1040, 1022, 919, 1087
Browns: 948, 946, 941, 1082, 1080, 997
Oranges: 918, 1002, 917, 1003
Greens: 908, 912, 1096, 913, 989, 1004
Reds: 924, 923, 922
Yellows: 942, 916, 1011, 914
White: 938

I ink blended the background panel with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and then splattered it with diluted white and black craft paint. Once the panel was dry, I die cut it with the Crafty Meraki Mini Slimline Bar None die. The sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Tweet Friends Stamp Set.

I left every other space white to create a little visual contrast. The Toucans were attached to card with double sided foam tape. Just a few coordinating enamel dots finishes the card.

Pretty in Pink & Ready to Drink!

Hello my friends!

I am back today to share a fun Flamingo themed mini slimline card with you. These seriously adorable Flamingo’s are from Crafty Meraki and are part of the clear stamp set called Flocking Fabulous.

We are having an Instagram Hop today and would love for you to join us. Details below.

I started my card with a card base of 6-3/8″ x 3-5/8″. Next using the 3 Room Studio Mini Slimline die, I cut one from blue dotted paper and three from white card stock to give some depth for the shaker element. I used tulle for the shaker windows to give the card a softer feel, sandwiching it between the blue and one white die cut. The remaining two were glued together and attached to the card base. I then added the white stitched center pieces to the card, added bling confetti, and adhered the top section to the bottom piece with foam tape.

The fabulously adorable Flamingo’s were stamped on Neenah 80# Solar White paper with Inkon3 Fadeout No Line Ink, and then colored with Prismacolor pencils. I fussy cut the images out and attached them to the front of the card using liquid glue.

Hello friends!

Woot Woot!! I can finally share some exciting news…I have joined up with all the talented ladies at Crafty Meraki and will be designing beside them.

My first card as a design team member was created with the super adorable stamp set called Mertini on the Rocks, and the Bubble Mania Mini Slimline Die. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could transform ourselves into a mermaid for the day and zoom through the water to look at all the gorgeous coral and aquatic life. That’s not asking for too much is it?

These little cuties were stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with the following Markers.

Plant: YG17, YG03, YG01
Coral: R35, YR18, YR16, YR14, Y06

If you follow my blog, you know I love layers. To achieve a layered look, I started my card with a card base of 6-3/8″ x 3-5/8″. Next I die cut the Bubble Mania Mini Slimline Die out of white paper, and glued it down to the pre-printed water look paper. This piece was then glued to a 6-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ piece of white paper, and finally glued to the card base. All of the elements were also attached with liquid glue or double sided foam tape. The sentiment is included in the Mertini on the Rocks Clear Stamp Set.
