Flower Pot Chick


Hi everyone! It feels like eons since I've played in my craft room so I took a short break from studying today to create this card. I'm playing along with the April Free Stamp of the Month Challenge at Delightful Inspiration. I also found inspiration for the layout using I {Heart} Sketch #14.  The image used on today's card is the Flower Pot Chick digital stamp by From The Heart Stamps. The printed papers are from the Fly A Kite patterned paper collection by October Afternoon.


My card base is Honeycomb layered with White Cardstock then Lemonade Patterned Paper. The strip is Dandelions Pattern Paper layered on White Cardstock. The shadow layer is Strawberry Jam Patterned Paper layered on White Cardstock. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I distressed the edges of the patterned paper and image with Tea Dye Distress Ink and a sponge. To embellish the card I added white lace, a bow made with White Grosgrain Ribbon and some dew drops.

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

Meet Anneke


Hi everyone, meet Anneke!  Isn't she gorgeous?!?  This is a new line of digital stamps by From The Heart Stamps!  As you know, I'm not big on using paper flowers but on this card I couldn't resist.  The image used on today's card is the Meet Anneke digital stamp by From The Heart Stamps.


The card base is Perfect Plum layered with White Cardstock and patterned paper.  The strip is Green Galore embossed using the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  I layered it on White Cardstock finished on one side using the Scallop Edge Punch.  The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.  I rounded two of the corders and paper pierced around the edges then layered the image on Perfect Plum.  To embellish the card I added lots of stitching, the flowers and clear dew drops in each corner of the card base.  The leaves were punched out of Green Galore using the Oak Leaf Punch.

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

Kitten Flowerpot


Hi everyone!  OMG, you know how much I LOVE cats so I'm sure it's not a surprise when I say how much I LOVE this image.  I could totally see my kittens in that flower pot.  They are always finding places to crawl into and spring out of to attack each other.  The image used on today's card is the Kitten Flowerpot digital stamp by From The Heart Stamps.


My card base is Dark Brown layered with White Cardstock then Small Polka Dots patterned paper.   The strip is Cat Flowers patterned paper layered on Dark Brown.  The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.  To embellish the card I added lots of stitching, orange lace, a couple small light orange flowers finished with a chocolate pearl and some brown satin ribbon.

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