Here I am again. You think stamping the afternoon away would be enough stamping time for me. But when you get new rubber they just have to see ink right away. This is a litte fairy from the UK. Can't you just hear her little British accent? No, well it just must be me. The stamp is from a company called Lili of the Valley Ltd. I got five of their stamps and one is just as cute as the other. I colored this with my copics. I punched around the page with a Martha Stewart punch called rain drops. I like how it leaves a border around the outside. The flowers I got in the bridal section of AC Moore. Then I added a little crystal stickles to the wand and her antenne.

Ok Ok, I have no life. I did three in one afternoon. I colored this image the other day and sense I was in my craft room playing I might as well finish this, right? It is another image from Mo's Digital Pencil. I did a little 3-D ing on this one. I colored two images and then cut out the clothes and head of one of them. Then I raised these cut pieces with foam tape over the main image. Its kind of plain but I kind of like it like that. Can't get too fancy with a boy's card.

Sense I was on a roll I figured out I should make my grandsons birthday card. Happy 10th birthday Dylan!! The image is from Mo's Digital pencil. I love her digi images. It was colored with Copics and cut using Nesties. The paper is some I had in my stash. I run the plaid through my Cuttlebug and embossed it. The little beep, beep, beep is an image that I cut out of a piece of designer paper pad called All About Boys.

Today I have been playing. I saw a card on Selma's Stamping Corner blog and I fell in love with it. So hey I have to try it. I used my cricut to cut out the ovals but I think the next time I will use my Spellbinders Nesties. I think it would be much easier. The flowers are from Heartfelt Creations along with the dies to cut them out. It took me a little while to figure out how to cut them so they would be exact. I had to cut them then stamp. Even then I didn't do so good. The verse is from Quietfire. I used Crystal stickles in the center of the flowers. The leaves are a die I got from Marianne designs. The paper is Almost Amethyst from Stampin Up and the ink is also. I used Basic Grey ink for the verse. Black was too dark. I used a couple Cuttlebug embossing folders to add a little demention.

After seeing the beautiful card that Mary,, recieved from her Secret Sister I was bound and determined to try to make one. The card is called a tri-fold shutter card, I believe. Mine is no where near the beauty that Mary's is but I had a good time trying to figure out how to do it. I also tried to made a watermark. All I can say is I got one on there. lol Now to figure out how to fancy it up. Eek, just remembered I forgot to add shadows to it. I guess it is back to the drawing board for me.

Well I am at it again. I was surfing the web and came across these digital stamps. They are so detailed and cute that I just had to try to color one. I really like the card. I could have done a little better coloring the image especially now that I see it photographed.

The embellishment under the image is two Spellbinders Heartfelt Creations die templates. The branch is a Creatable from Marianne design. The image is one I bought on a site called Funky Kits. The flower I air brushed with Copics and put together, then added a little pearl embellishment in the middle.

Today while I was surfing the web (like always) I came across a blog that has the most beautiful cards. So using her directions I made this card. The image I colored using a technique that I learned the other day on how to use the Copic blending pen to acheve the faded colors. Here is the blog where I found the measurements for the card. Check it out her cards are outstanding. I am not sure what happened to the colors on this but it probably was me trying to edit it.

Playing with Punches

Well I have been playing with my cricut and punches. I tried to make a card but not sure if it is gaudy or not. Theresa did the little ladies made out of a tag punch and others. On the Creative Memories they have a whole slew of these little characters. So cute. They even have one called Oprah. Gotta love it.
