For you

Hello!

I’m sending everyone flowers to brighten their day! I love purple flowers, but sadly they are hard to find in some varieties. The great thing about sending handmade cards is you can color the flowers any color you wish.

This gorgeous die from Crafty Meraki called Avery Mini Slimline Die is perfect to get creative with.

The flower portion of my card is from a die cut. The die was cut using X-Press It Blending Card and was colored with the following markers and colored pencils.

~Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils~

Flowers: BV02, BV000, BV0000, RV63, RV00, RV000, RV0000 then Prismacolor 996, 994, 956, 929, 938
Flower Centers: YR23, Y15, Y11, Y00
Greens: YG63, YG61, YG13, YG01, G21, G20
Border: C4, C2, C0

My card base is 1/8″ larger than the die cut to give it the look of being layered. I added a patterned paper behind the flowers to add a little bit of visual interest. The sentiment was stamped from the Thanks Bunches Clear Stamp Set.

Thank you

Hello and welcome!

What better way to say thank you than with flowers. I LOVE flowers, and do my best to grow them. Unfortunately the deer love them as well and seem to eat them just when the blooms are about to open.

This gorgeous die called Jewel Bloom Mini Slimline Die is from the October release at Crafty Meraki. The sentiment is from the beautiful Thanks Bunches stamp set. SO many fabulous products to create with again this month!

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

I cut the die on plain white card stock and colored it with the following colored pencils.

~Prismacolor Pencils~
Blues: 1027, 105, 905, 992, 289, 938
Yellows: 941, 1034, 942, 916, 915, 1011, 938
Pinks: 994, 993, 1014, 938
Greens: 911, 912, 913, 989, 938

My card base is 6-1/2″ x 3-3/4″. To that I added a layer of white measuring 6-3/8″ x 3-5/8″. The multi-colored notebook paper is from my stash. I carefully cut it out on the diagonal so the lines would be on a slant.

The sentiment was stamped, layered with bright blue cardstock and adhered to the card with liquid glue. I added a few rhinestones in matching colors to finish my card.

When witches go riding

Hello everyone!

All kinds of spooky things happen when witches go riding! These adorable little witches are included in the digital stamp set called ‘Bewitching Mice‘ from StreamSide Studios. They are so busy brewing up that bubbly goo just for you!

This post is part of are having a Spook-tacular Instagram Hop today. We would love to have you join us for some fun and a chance to win. Link to my Instagram page with the hop list and rules can be found below.

I created this adorable little Halloween scene with these super fun little mice in Photoshop. Once I had all those adorable little mice where I wanted them and sized correctly, I printed it out on Neenah Solar Crest White 80# paper. Then came the fun part of watching these cuties come to life by coloring them with the following markers and pencils.

~Copics and Prismacolor Pencils~
Greens: YG17, YG03, YG01, YG00, YG0000
Mice: W4, W3, W2, W1, W0, R20, R30, R00
Cauldron: 100, W5, W7, W6, W5
Floor: E49, E29, E27, E25, E55, E31, E30
Tans: E43, E42, E41, E40
Purples: (Pencils) 995, 1009, 934, 938
Yellow-Gold: (Pencils) 1082, 1034, 942, 940, 1012, 140

I used a ruler and very lightly penciled in the brick background and then used markers and pencils to shade the bricks. I drew the pattern in the floor as I colored, crossing my fingers the whole time that it would somehow resemble wood flooring.

My card base is mini-slimline size 6-1/4″ x 3-1/2″. I trimmed my card front to 6″ x 3-1/4″ and added a black mat of 6-/8″ x 3-3/8″ before attaching it to the white card base.

As always, you can find an abundance of gorgeous inspiration here.
