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.

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!

I am back today with a couple more of the adorable little cows from Digi Doodle Studios. These little cuties are from the Udderly Fabulous Pairables digi stamp set.

I created two super easy little note cards with these darling images. They can be sent just to let someone know you are thinking of them, or as a gift card. The cards are small at just 3.5″ square.

I printed these sweeties at a height of 1.8″ and colored them with the following markers.

~Copics~
Bodies (White): W5, W4, W3, W2, W1, W0, W00, C1, C0, Colorless Blender

Ears and cheeks: R20. R00
Bow: R89, R59, R32, R30
White Gel Pen

I cut out the images with my Scan’N Cut for a change instead of fussy cutting them. The dies are from My Favorite Things.

We all have those certain people in our lives that will be a forever friend no matter what. I hold those special loved ones dear to my heart.

I printed this little cutie on Neenah Solar White 80lb paper and colored her with the following colored pencils.

I altered the image a little bit so I had room to fit her in the die cut shape and had room to add the sentiment. I also changed the opacity of the image so the lines were lighter.

The dies are from La-La Land Crafts and Cheery Lynn.

You’re the best

Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing my DT project for All Dressed Up Stamps. This gorgeous image is called ‘Best Mummy‘.

As we don’t use ‘Mummy’ here in the United States, I removed that portion of the stamp in Photoshop which left me a blank slate to use the image for something different.

I printed the image on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and colored it with the following colored pencils.

~Prismacolor Pencils~

Pinks: PC1009, PC994, PC993, PC929, PC1014, PC938

Greens: PC935, PC908, PC109, PC912, PC913, PC989, PC120, PC1004, PC1089
Background Shading: PC936, PC1088, PC1020, PC1021, PC1008, PC956, PC934, PC1026, PC289

I created the sentiments myself, using Microsoft Word for the printed words, and my Cameo Silhouette for the die cut word. The remaining dies are from Pinkfresh Studios, Magnolia Doo-Hickeys, and La-La Land Crafts.
