This is the last rubber stamp from the Happy Camper set from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.  I colored the image with Copics and layered her on cardstock from Simon Says Stamps.  The sentiment is part of the rubber stamp set.  The flower is a wooden veneer from Freckled Fawn and the enamel dots are by Now and Then.

Love You S’More!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is another stamp from the “Happy Campers” rubber stamp set from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and I love them!!  I have avid campers in my family and these are perfect for them!  The layout for the card  is a sketch from Deconstructed Sketch and it’s perfect for this card.  The image is colored with Copics and layered on cardstock.  The button is from Doodlebug and the leaf branch behind it is a punch by Martha Steward.  The designer paper is from the ‘Be Different Collection’ by Fancy Pants.  The wood veneer shapes are from Freckled Fawn.  The sentiment is also part of the Happy Campers stamp set.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is one of a set of Happy Campers rubber stamps from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.  The artist is Cheryl Alger. I love the little tent with the window and flowers.  My idea of camping…lol!  The set comes with multiple sentiments.  The flowers are a die from Die-namics and the tree is a die by Memory Box.  The center of the flowers are enamel dots by Now and Then.  I believe the designer paper is from the Sugar Coated paper pad by Doodlebug.  Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Aurora Wings Mistletoe Fairy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you haven’t had the chance to create using Aurora Wings digital images may I suggest you check them out!  She does amazing stamps and it gives you a chance to color way out of your comfort zone….at least for me it did!  There is a Christmas In July challenge on Aurora Wings Facebook page and I chose to use “Mistletoe Fairy”.  I think she is lovely and I love her ‘hair’.  I colored this image with Copics and then used liquid pearls on the hair.  I also added a red pearl for her necklace.  I used Pink Paislee’s ‘City Sidewalks’ 8x8 Patterned Paper for the background.  Isn’t it gorgeous!  The border punch is by E.K. Success.  The sentiment is part of the Simon Says Stamp ‘Merry Everything’ clear stamps.  A little embossing with a Cuttlebug folder for the green panel, some pearls and punched ferns and then a nice bow to complete the card.  Thanks for dropping by!

The Gift!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There is a coloring competition on the Kit and Clowder Facebook group and it uses this gorgeous image from Aurora Wings.  This is my first image from Aurora Wings and I love them.  She is an amazing artist!  This image took me almost four hours to color and can I just say it was a labor of love!!  I kept the embellishments to a minimum, because I wanted the image to be the focal point.  I colored the image with Copics and then added glitter using Stickles stardust.  I also added little pearls to her hair using liquid pearls – White Opal.  I wanted to create the illusion of waves so I embossed clear acetate with the Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder and placed it behind the image.  Then a sentiment and a few gems to finish the card.

Birthday Card With Guilty Bert!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is “Guilty Bert’ from Mo’s Digital Pencil.  I think I love this image so much because it reminds me of my grandson Owen….lol.  I colored the image with Copics and layered it on navy blue and red card stock from Simon Says Stamps.  The sentiments are both from SSS.  The designer paper is from the Be Different Collection by Fancy Pants.  Then I added some red and blue embroidery floss to the button and did some faux stitching with a white gel pen.  Don’t you just love the definition of ‘boy’!

Beauregard Christmas Seahorse!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This cute Christmas Seahorse is a Lacy Sunshine stamp.  I chose to go with non-tradition colors and love the vibrant turquoise and mauves.  I used Copics to color the image and frame it with the Oval Spellbinder dies.  The embossing is a 5x7 folder and I cut it in half and taped it together to get the side panels.  I love that it looks like waves!

Thank You Card!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve made a thank you card today using one of Mo’s Digital Pencil images and it’s called “Thanks”.  She has such a sweet little face!  I’ve colored the image using Copics and one of my favourite color combos of purple and orange.  I cut out the image and layered it on round dies by Spellbinders.  The flowers are dies from Memory Box and I believe they are called Petal Party.  I also used a die from Simon Says Stamps for the word ‘you’.  The paper is from the Graph 45 Once Upon A Time paper pad.  Brads for the flower centers are by Doodlebug.
