Easter Tricks


Hi everyone, Happy Easter!!!  I've a crazy busy weekend planned, how about you?!?  I wish there were more days for crafting before easter so I could keep on making cute bunny cards but alas this is my last easter card for the season.  Looking at this photo I'm not sure why I colored the hedgehog grey so I went back and added some brown tones so the image would blend more with the patterned paper.  The image used on today's card is the Easter Tricks rubber stamp by Penny Black


My card base is Coral layered with White Cardstock then Garden Chic Stripe patterned paper.  The shadow layer is Garden Chic Worn Dots on Coral Cardstock.  The image was stamped on White Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in using copic markers then layered on Coral Cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped on White Cardstock and punched out using the Modern Label Punch.  To embellish the card I added lots of stitching, coral lace, a coral button threaded with DMC White and pearls in each corner of the card base.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

2014 Calendar - MARCH


Hi everyone!  I'm not Irish but since St. Patrick's Day falls in March I decided to go with a shamrock theme for this months calendar page.  The image is the Shamrock Plant coloring page.  The patterned paper used in the background is this printable Shamrock digital paper.


My calendar base is Kraft layered with White Cardstock then the printable Shamrock digital paper layered with a torn strip of Green Cardstock.  The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.  I cut it out with scissors and used a cutting blade to trim on the inside then mounted it over a small piece of torn Shamrock digital paper using mounting tape. To embellish the calendar I added two green rhinestones.

I'm entering this calendar page in the following challenges:

In The Doghouse


Hi everyone! Do you ever spend hours coloring an image?!? I'm really enjoying coloring my images lately and finding that the more detailed I color them the longer it takes. Sometimes I start coloring an image and before I know it hours have gone by! This image was like that and lots of fun to color. I also really like how the card turned out. The image used on this card is the In The Doghouse digital stamp by From The Heart Stamps.


My card base is Dark Brown layered with Brocade Blue then Cat Stripes Patterned Paper. The shadow layer is Green Patterned Paper layered on Dark Brown. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers then layered on Dark Brown. I distressed all the edges with a sponge and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. To embellish the card I added some Jute Twine threaded through an oraange button and a copper flower brad in each corner.
