I’ve used one of the rock star kids from the “You’re A Rock Star” rubber stamp set from the Kraftin’ Kimmie store.  I love how she is singing into her hair brush.  I wonder how many people can relate to that!  My image is colored with Copics and then I used a Spellbinder die to layer the image.  The card design is a sketch from Sketch 'N' Stash.  Other supplies used are; Crafts ribbon and lace, MS Yellow designer paper, CN Crafts enamel dots ‘Date Night’, SSS mini tag die and the birthday designer paper is a leftover from another project

Halloween!

It’s time for another Lacy Sunshine Stamp challenge, and the theme is Halloween!  So let’s see something scary or cute!  You can use any stamp for this two week challenge but we would love to see your creations using Lacy Sunshine Stamps!  You can find all sorts of gorgeous and creepy Halloween images here at the Lacy Sunshine store.  Happy shopping!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For my card I’ve used the brand new image called Rory's Witchy Fun.  I’ve colored the image with Copics and fussy cut her out and layered the image on black card stock.  I made the flowers using black and orange card stock.  I punched out 4 of each color using the 3/4 inch punch.  Then I separated the layers on each circle so that I had 8 layers for each flower.  There is a brad in the center to hold the flowers together.  Then you scrunch each layer and then reopen the layers to the size of the flower you want.  A very simple flower to create and I love how they look!  Other supplies used were; Spellbinder round dies, MS border and corner punch, Crafts ribbon, McGill branch punch, Memory Box Spider Web die, Doodlebug Halloween brads, Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale paper pad and Stickles Black Diamond.

Have a wonderful week-end!  Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian neighbors!

For my card I used Vampire Queen from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.  My image is colored with Copics and then I layered her on black card stock using a Spellbinder die.  The sentiment comes with the rubber stamp.  The flowers were made using a 3/4 inch round paper punch.  I used 4 circles per flower.  I then pulled apart each layer of paper, so that I would end up with 8 layers per flower.  The layers were attached together with a brad, then each layer was scrunched up and then reopened.  I really love the look of these homemade flowers.  Other supplies used were; Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale paper pad, Memory box bat and spider web dies, MS Goo border punch, McGill branch punch, .Doodlebug brads and Stickles Stardust.

Weather/Change Of Season

Seems it that time already for another challenge with Lacy Sunshine Stamps.  The theme for this challenge is Weather/Change Of Season.  So you can use any image that depicts weather, and that could be falling leaves, blowing wind, umbrellas etc…  I chose to use the cute image “Snowflakes Quality Control”.  There are a lot of gorgeous images in the Lacy Sunshine shop that would be perfect for this challenge.  You can find them all here.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So here’s my card and I chose to use reds and blues and get a head start on Christmas cards.  I have a few now, but many more to go!  I used Copics to color the image and then I layered it on red card stock.  The designer paper is from the Winter Park paper pad by Echo Park.  Other supplies used are; Snowflake die by Magnolia, Flowers by Prima, branch punch by McGill, Spellbinder die, Die-namics Crochet border die and Crafts ribbon.  I used liquid applique on the dress to give it a puffy and dimensional look. 

I hope you’ll join our challenge this week and don’t forget to pop over the the challenge blog and see all the other gorgeous cards by the design team!  Have a wonderful day!

Nimbleknees Gherkin Creepmas Elf!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love love love this image by Rick St. Dennis!  If you know me then you know I love the quirky, out of the box images.  Don’t get me wrong I love the cute and sweet images too, but they don’t compare to this Creepmas Elf!  If I received a Christmas card with this type of image I would be over the top thrilled and excited….lol.  As usually this image was colored using Copics and then layered on red and green card stock.  The designer paper is from the Mint Twist paper pad by Kaiser Craft.  The border punch, by Martha Stewart,  is suppose to represent snowflakes, but to me they look like flowers.  Corner dies by Cuttlebug.  The sentiment was a freebie from Create With TLC.  Ribbon and gems by Crafts.  Thanks for stopping by and having a look!
