Happy Fall

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while since I have created anything…I’ve been quite busy outside playing gardener…lol!

For today’s card I’ve joined with a few other talented ladies for Pink Gems Designs first ever Instahop over on Instagram. This handsome little dude is called Autumn Gnome.

I printed this adorable little fella on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with the following markers.

~Copics~

Although I have loads of DSP, I couldn’t find what I was looking for so I created my own paper for the background. The orange ribbon is folded at the sides and taped down behind the main image to hide the seam. The postage stamp panel is popped up with double sided foam tape.

You make life a little sweeter

Hello crafty friends!

I don’t know about you, but my dogs are little beggars when it comes to ice cream. Good thing I’m not a fan of chocolate ice cream…then there would be no sharing…lol!

Today I am back to share another little sweetheart from the new release at All Dressed Up Stamps. This adorable image is called ‘Too Good to Share‘.

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

~Copics~

I added some detail to the patterened paper with a white gel pen to break up the solid pink squares just a little bit.

Welcome Little One

Hello friends!

Who doesn’t love holding a tiny baby, and the awesome smell of a new life?

The instant I saw this image I immediately thought of a baby card. This little cutie is part of the Paper Nest DollsArk Bundle‘.

I printed this sweet image on white cardstock and colored it with the following colored pencils:

~Prismacolor Pencils~
Body/Face: 1082, 1034, 942, 1012, 940, 140, 938

Nose: 935, 1058, 1056
Mane/Tail: 1082, 941, 1033, 1034, 942

I had so much fun trying to re-create the rainbow from the paper so I could use it on the front of my card. I added a few details with a black marker pen and added in other details with a white gel pen.

Hi

Hello and welcome!

I used to love pretty flowered dresses when I was little. The full skirts with ruffles on them were the most fun to twirl around in! This little cutie pie from All Dressed Up Stamps is called ‘Love Spring Time‘. I just couldn’t resist drawing in some pretty purple flowers on her cute little dress.

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

~Copics~
Skin: E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00

Purples: V09, V17, V12
White Gel Pen

I took a stroll through one of our local scrapbook stores last week and found some adorable dies. I mixed them with some that I already had to come up with this design. I love how it turned out!

Hello and welcome!

Oh my goodness…how stinkin’ cute is this little cutie pie? This sweet image from All Dressed Up Stamps is called ‘Daisy Fairy‘. I just love her adorable flower dress!!

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

~Copics~
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00

I couldn’t decide on a particular color for her flower dress, so I decided to try a multi-colored effect. It is a little more vibrant in person, but I love how it turned out. It was a happy experiment!

Love you to pieces

Hi friends!

Is there such a thing as loving someone too much?…nope…never!

This little sweetie is sharing all of her love in the form of a puzzle. This adorable image from The Paper Nest Dolls is called ‘Ava with Heart Puzzle‘. She was originally drawn for Autism Awareness, but she can also be used for lots of other occasions.

I printed this little cutie at a height of 3.4″ on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00
Hair: E55, E53, E51, YR21
Pinks: BV23, RV23, RV21, RV11, R00, R000
Blues: B95, B93, B91, BG000
Greens: YG17, YG03, YG01
Yellows: YR23, Y15, Y11, Y00
Purples: BV04, BV02, BV01, BV00, BV000
White Gel Pen

The shaker part is made with tulle netting as I find it easier to photograph, and it also gives the card a little bit softer feel. I have to say I had fun going through my stash of shaker bits choosing colors that are in the background paper. It’s good to go through those sometimes just to remember what you have…lol!!

As two hearts become one

Hi friends!

I printed these adorable newlyweds on X-Press It Blending Card and colored them with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00

Silver Gel Pen

For today’s card I decided to use die cut paper flowers, adding pearls and gemstones to the centers for a little sparkle. I used a silver gel pen on the pearls in her hair and to the top of her dress. My hope is that it would look like sparkly gemstones.
