Love You Mudder

This adorable group of piggies just grabbed me.  This digital stamp also comes with a Mothers Day greeting but seeing as its past Mothers Day I thought I would give it a sentiment of my own.  I matched it up with some Make it Crafty Chipboard too.  To bring it all together I did some XO's on white cardstock.
I added the banner flags and the brown background using the In Line die set from Craftin' Desert Divas, one of my favorite sets.

Coffee Lovers

Here is the last of 3 cards created using Cactus Coffee.  For this card I used TONS of layering.  This was a fun challenge for me.  If was harder to come up with 3 totally different layouts using the same image in one sitting.  I might have gone slightly overboard on this...NAH!  I love how black cardstock frames out an image.  It pretty much goes with anything.

Oooh La La

Flapper Molli is smoking hot in this ensemble.   I thought I would create a sassy card using her.  

I have been saving this paper for a rainy day...guess it rained.  It is a yummy orangie/red color with a sea foam background.  Yes please!  Combining Molli with the Open Hearts Doily die gives her a sassy but elegant look.  These are both available in the La-La Land store now

Into the ocean

Wow was this fun designing.  I must admit it took a while to design.  Each piece came together one thought at a time  Sometimes when you have time, its the best way to go.  I am super thrilled about this dimensional card using all products from la-La Land Crafts. 

This piece was designed around this sweet sea turtle that was part of La-La Lands monthly club kit.  If you haven't gotten in on this action you must check it out.  This months theme is gnomes.  YES...gnomes and mushrooms and....well go check it out!

I used glossy cardstock from the background.  I created it using the Copics and an airbrush machine with some light misting of rubbing alcohol.  I did the same thing with the turtles body but in the greens.  I fussy cut out the underpart of the turtle with scissors.  I added the Lattice Border as frames and cut apart the Deco Border to create the sea-weed.  Using the Tabs Border I created the sand.  This card definitely will not fit in an envelope.  As I create this card I am thinking and sending love to all my Hawaiian friends dealing with the Volcano action.  Be safe!

Missing You

La-La Land's Thinking of You Marci is just as sweet as can be.  I think she is currently my favorite.  She looks so summery in her cute outfit don't you think?

I popped Marci up on the background and finished the card off with some clouds and grass from Whimsy Stamps.

Free Hugs

Another fun take on the Cactus Coffee that I created using a different paper combination with teal, green and browns.  I used the Fancy Frames die set to create the scalloped edge mat.  I do love the blue green color combination for this card and will use it again.

I think this one might be my favorite card out of the 3 cards I made with this stamp.  I had so much fun doing this!  I will definitely be asking my FB friends to help again!

You know you need this digital stamp and fun die in your life.  I have added the links below to make it easy :)

Chivalrous Pooch

Okay I went all in on this one.  All the way down to the tiniest cog.  This adorable pooch from La-La Land Crafts is such a charmer.  He even brought flowers!  

This was fun to color and assemble.  I colored the Dandy Frenchie dog stamp using my Copics.  I then fussy cut him out and set him aside.  Next I stamped the jar and flowers in a light color.  This stamp comes from the background set Just For You.  It includes a huge gingham background stamp with a sentiment, jar, basket and flowers.  After coloring it I cut it out and then got to assembling the card.  I love gears and cogs so this was super fun.

Prickly Situation

So I did a fun little thing on my facebook page.  If you aren't following feel free to request to add me HERE.  On Facebook I asked what paper they want me to create a card with for the Cactus Coffee image from Craftin Desert Divas.

The majority wanted #2, so I created this card layout below.  This week I will show a couple more cards I made with the other combinations and the Copic colors used for this adorable image.

For this card design I used Craftin' Desert Divas In Line die set for the sentiment.  It has so many dies in this set and is worth every penny!  I also used Fancy Frames die to create all the frames and flag.  This set is another favorite of mine and is very versatile.  A  must have for your die stash as I use it a lot!

True Hero

This set is amazing for creating that special card to show your respect for the hard work and dedication of some of our heroes.  True heroes don't look for praise but they sure do deserve it.   I combined this Heroes clear set with the Brick Background.  Creating a window and adding some shaker elements give it a fun little twist.

You can find this set and background available now through Whimsy Stamps.

I have been a bit behind in getting my coloring on.  This week I am catching up on some cute stuff from a few different companies.  Today I chose this elegant Daffodil Bouquet from Power Poppy this mornings coloring.  Power poppy has so many images that are very therapeutic.  I am a little behind on my coloring for Power Poppy so I hope to rectify that in the weeks to come.  Thank you Marc for your patience.

I chose the gray scale image to print for this one.  I loved the grape hyacinth flowers as they remind me about my childhood...I always thought these flowers smelled like beer flowers, so I have always called them the beer flower.  I really enjoyed coloring this up and basking in the spring feeling it has.
