Guest Designer for Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge!

I am so pleased to be a Guest designer this week with Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge.  The theme is “Wings and Things”.  For my card I used a digital image by Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps.  This image is called “Green Moth Maiden.


I love her art and this one is gorgeous!  I colored the image using Copics.  Other supplies used are, Butterfly Glade paper by Wild Rose Studios, Spellbinder round dies and label die, Memory Box butterfly die, Prima flowers, Craft ribbon and pearls, SSS sentiment and Wink Of Stella clear glitter pen on the Butterflies and Moths.

Valentine’s Day!

This is a digital image from That Craft Place and it’s called “Sugar Love”.  I got it from the Passionate Paper Creations Facebook page.  She’s a real sweetie and looks gorgeous in pinks.  I used the tutorial for the hair and color by Erin Fairclough, which I found on the PPC Facebook page.   It’s a great group with lots of inspirations and free tutorials for coloring with different types of mediums.


The pink Copic colors I used for the hair are R85,RV69, R21, RV10.  I’m always on the look out for new Copic combinations! Other supplies used are Sizzlets Flourish die, SSS Heart Parade die, Darice Hearts embossing folder, Prima Flowers, SSS sentiment (Only Have Eyes For You) and Craft ribbon.  I can’t remember the name of the designer paper.

Be Mine!


This is one of the rubber stamps from the “Snips and Snails” stamp set from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.  A perfect little guy for a Valentine’s Day card.  I colored the stamp with Copics and then framed it with my brand new Spellbinders Decorative Labels #8.  The designer paper is ‘Welcome Spring’ by American Crafts.  I also used the hearts dies by Spellbinders.  The sentiment ‘be mine’ is part of the rubber stamp set.  I used the Cuttlebug hearts embossing folder for the blue panel behind the image.

Love You… the moon and back!

There is a progressive challenge on the Artbymiran Facebook page featuring this adorable image “Petal Blossoms”.  This is a reserved image just for the challenge and you can find out more about the challenge by visiting her Facebook page.


I decided to color her in blues and  yellows.  I hadn’t started out thinking this was going to be a Valentine’s card, but once I started adding the hearts and the sentiment I just ran with it!  It’s also nice to get out of the “red” only for Valentine’s Day.


American Crafts – Welcome Spring paper pad.  French Pastry Doily die by Cheery Lynn Designs.  The hearts and Love You dies are from Simon Says Stamp.  The sentiment is from the Love Languages clear stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.  The yellow ribbon is by Crafts.  The image is colored with Copics.
