The Fantasy Hat



Hey!

There is a new awesome release "The Hat Collection" from Stamps by Julia Spiri.

I got to play with "The Fantasy Hat" and colored it with Faber-Castell Polychromos. Still getting used to using pencils instead of alcohol markers. I made a card with a few folds. Was a lot of work but I like the end result. Also love to recycle corrugated paper from cookie packages.

Feel free to join the challenge at the Stamps by Julia Spiri blog.

Easter Bunny


Hey!

Here's an egg card I made using a discontinued SSD image called "Easter Bunny". Isn't she cute?

The image is colored with Promarkers and I made a card in an egg shape by using an oval die cut and cutting the bottom freehand till it formed an egg shape. I created a little scene with a couple of dies (fence, birdhouse, 2 kinds of grass, bird and a doily) I used walnut stain distress ink along the edges of the die cuts.

Feel free to join the Dare to be Sassy Thursday challenge over at the SSD Blog.
DTBS #322 is themed "Your Choice".

Love



Hey!

Here's a love card using one of the A Touch of Love Collection Magnolia stamps.

The image is called "Miracle Love Tilda" and I've colored her with Promarkers. The card base is red linen cardstock. I found some lovely roses dp in my stash. Items used to create the card: flourish die cuts, roses, pearls, glossy accents (on the little hearts of the image and drops on the roses), wink of Stella (on the wings), doily edge punch, scalloped oval die, walnut stain distress ink, hearts confetti. Love how the card turned out. Always great to use red and pink as a combo.

Spirit of Hibiscus


 Hey!

We are halfway the month so that means a new challenge at CCC Digi Creations. This fortnight the challenge is "Favorite Color Combo" and our sponsor is Aurora Wings.

I got to play with this gorgeous image called "Spirit of Hibiscus". I love Hibiscus flowers and got a few of these plants in my garden and enjoy them every year. Hope they'll bloom this year as good as they did last year. The image is colored with Pormarkers. One of my favorite color combo's is Pink & Green. In the eighties I was a big fan of a Dutch band called Doe Maar and this combo was their color combo too. The band stopped in 1984 and I was to young to go to their concert. Looking forward to go to a concert this year. Have to look for my fan buttons that I still got somewhere.

Well back to my card. I have cut out a circle and folded it in half. Added dp, lace, die cut, roses, pear string, butterflies and a sentiment. Made this card for my mom's birthday as she also loves Hibiscus.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Kitty

Little May


Hey!

Today I made this card using the cute Newsletter Freebie from Stamps by Julia Spiri. Isn't she cute?

The image is called "Little May" and I colored her with Promarkers. The card base is red cardstock, I reused some Kraft cardstock backing as a mat. The big red piece behind the image and the striped little strip are scraps. Always great to use the little left overs. I found a piece of ribbon with hearts in my stash and the Heart Border is designed by me with the Silhouette Studio Designer software. Love how that one turned out.

Space Princes Honey


Hey!

This week Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring The Space Race Challenge at Fab 'n Funky. Feel free to join for a chance to win 4 SSD images.

I made a tag (10x15cm) using "Space Princess Honey" and colored her with Promarkers. I found a background of a photo from a Star Wars scene with Princess Leia and have cut it to size to fit this image. Love the shapes in the background and I knew I had an embossing folder with similar shapes and used some white ink to accent the shapes. I cut the Happy Birthday (Joy Crafts) border die cut in half and adhered it along the sides of the image. The ribbon on the bottom is metallic like I had to use. On top I added stretchy lace.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Kitty

Maddie & Clover



Hey!

Here's my first individual coloring for Heather Valentin's Coloring without Boundaries group using a Lacy Sunshine stamp. I have been on the Lacy Sunshine DT for well over a year and now I am part of the coloring team. I must say I am very excited and it's pretty scary too. I haven't had any education in coloring. I just bought Promarkers and went for it.

I got to play with this cute Lacy Sunshine digi called Maddie and Clover. All info can be found on the Coloring Without Boundaries Blog.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Emma with Hair Dryer



Hey!

New month and that means a new challenge at CCC Digi Creations. This fortnight we have an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor is Pink Gem Designs.

I got to play with "Emma with Hair Dryer" and I made a card for my dear friend who is my hairdresser. The scissors background was found on the internet. I have cut the front of the square card in half, embossed a piece of black scrap paper and inked the raised part with white ink, matted the image on grey cardstock and adhered it with foam tape to the front.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
