The Colors Of Autumn!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Today I made a card using the beautiful colors of Autumn and a digital image from Art By Miran.  I won this image when I entered the Artbymiran Facebook challenge.  She’s called “Autumns Memoirs”.  The image was colored with Copics and layered on card stock.  I used the Martha Stewart branch punch to make the side leaf panel and the small flower punch for the blossoms and then added liquid pearls in the centers.  I didn’t want to add ‘summer’ flowers because this card is all about autumn and its beauty.  For the corners I used Cuttlebug dies.  When it was all done I thought it would make a great card for Thanksgiving.  Fall (Autumn) is my favourite season because of the colors and because it’s not super hot.  I hate the heat and humidity!   I hope my card inspires you to go out and enjoy the wonderful beauty of the fall!

Art By Miran Challenge – #14 Anything Goes.

Gorgeous Butterfly!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love this gorgeous image by PPINKYDOLL Digital Stamps and it’s called ‘Butterfly”.  She has a lot of amazing images and what I love the most are the facial expressions on the stamps!  I think this image could be used for Valentines day and even Christmas just by switching out the colors and the papers.  I used Copics to color the stamp and then used the Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval dies for layering.  I added some faux stitching around the image.  The flowers and the borders were made with a couple of Martha Stewart punches.  The designer paper is from “Summertime’ paper pad.  The sentiment is a stamp from Simon Says Stamps.

Birthday Fishes!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Just got this cute rubber stamp called “Marina” from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.  I love the play on words with the sentiment.  The sentiment is part of another stamp set from KKS.  The stamp comes with small starfish and bubbles.  I colored the image with Copics and used ‘stardust’ stickles on the tail.  I used dimensional glue to make the bubbles.  I also used chalk for the background.  The designer paper is from the ‘Summertime’ paper pad.  Other supplies used are a Martha Stewart border punch, Spellbinder round dies and Crafts gems and ribbon.

Guest Designing For Lexi’s Creations!

This week I am lucky to be the Guest Design Team member for Lexi's Creations and the challenge is “Sparkle and Shine”.  I was fortunate to be given  “Elaina” to use on my card.  The image is from Fairy Dust Crafts

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Wow, I can’t believe how well the glitter shows up in this picture!  That never happens for me….lol!  I colored the image with Copics and used a Gold metallic gel pen for the dust and then added lots of ‘stardust’ stickles to give the sparkle and shine.  Then I used pink and turquoise chalk blended to make a background.  I used a corner punch to round off the edges of the card and the layers under the card.  Lots of dies used on this card.  The heart die is by Simon Says Stamps, the doily is a Cheery Lynn die, the butterfly is my brand new die by Memory Box and the corner dies are by Cuttlebug.  They are one of the first dies I bought.  Had them for years!!  I also added pink gems on the doily, just for a bit more shine!  The designer papers are leftovers from previous cards.

Esmerelda!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When I saw this rubber stamp at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps I almost fell out of my chair from giggling!!  I love this stamp!  It came in the mail yesterday and it was stamped and colored before I did anything else….lol.  I used my trusted Copics to color this stamp and layered her on card stock using the round Spellbinder dies.  The designer paper (also brand new) is from Graphic 45 and its called ‘Botanical Tea’.  The hilarious sentiment comes with the stamp.  The butterfly is a combination of two dies from Memory Box.  Ones called Pippi and the other is Isabella. Now I just have to decide which friend is going to receive this as a birthday card!  Have a wonderful weekend!
