Golf Anyone?

I thought this was a fun card that we will be doing at The Paper Collage next month at the TEE and CAKE card class.  The inside of the card says "Sorry I forgot your birthday".  Makes me giggle!  There are still a few seats left so make sure to go to the Class Schedule tab above and get the info and get signed up.

Have a Great Day

Little Darling Rubber Stamps has this adorable new release called Boho-Chic.  I decided to do her using Zoe's (with MakeItCrafty) "No Line Stamping" technique.  It took a little extra time but I think it make her POP.  I used bright colors to match the pattern paper I chose.

Simply Elegantly

Simply elegant but not elegantly simple!  I love the lilac and butterfly stamp in my latest release (maybe I am just partial to my stamps)  I cut a few corners by not coloring the complete image.  I didn't wasn't the flowers to be a smooth blend so I just flicked the color in.  Really quite a quick coloring job which left more time for the card making process.  I hope you enjoy and find inspiration!

I used one of Rhea's newer dies found HERE

Oh Such Fun!

Make It Crafty always has amazing challenges (as most of you know).  I love being able to challenge myself as this helps me grow in creativity.  This challenge is to create on kraft paper using pink.  Did you know you can use Copics on Kraft?  My favorite Kraft paper is by American Crafts "Kraft" Smooth because its so smooth.  Of course it you need white you will want to use colored pencil.  Be sure you finish your marker coloring first as you do not want to ruin your tips with waxy residue from the colored pencils.

Here is what I created for the challenge.  I used MakeItCrafty Magnolias and the NEW chippies Doodle Giggle of which you can find in the store.  You can enter the challenge HERE.

Little Treasures

I wanted to share with you one of the new release digi stamps from All Dressed Up.  I just love Wendy's bears so I chose this one to color.  I added a little creative color placement to add some facial features and buttons to the image.  You have to check out all the release images.

I chose my paper first because i wanted the bear and bunny to match as well as add some paper piecing to the bear.  I printed on the pattern paper and then cut out the particular parts I wanted for the clothes, feet and ears.  It was fun and relaxin to do.  If you saw the card in person you would see that the head and front leg is also popped up.

I have some amazing news to share.  No, I am not pregnant!  No, the sky isn't falling!  No, someone didn't buy me 20 pounds of dark chocolate (I wish)!
Today I am blessed to announce that in addition to what I currently do, I have been asked to join Copics Fine Arts Educational team.  In celebration of my joining the team, Copic wants to give YOU a chance to celebrate too.  The current Papercrafting Teacher Team has joined up for a welcome hop and they are EACH giving away a Copic T-Shirt to one lucky winner.

You Are My Happy

I love the feel of this card and it was quite fun doing all the shading too.  This is one of Stampendous's newer stamps and is available now in the store or at your local stores.  What a unique "celtic" looking heart.  It can be colored both feminine or masculine depending on the colors you choose.  I went a little girlie on this one.
