Lacy Sunshine Stamps

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Isn’t this stamp simply adorable!  It’s “Eleanor Tubing” from Lacy Sunshine Stamps.  I just love her over-sized glasses!  I became a fan of these beautiful images by winning a blog challenge and they were the prize.  I had a ball coloring her up with my Copics.  I used the Spellbinder rectangle dies to make a frame for the stamp.  Then layered her on orange card stock.  I used a white gel pen to highlight the dots on the tube her jeans and her bow.  The twine is by Lawn Fawn, the sentiment and tag die are from Simon Says Stamp and the enamel hearts are by CN Crafts.  The flower button I’ve had for ages and I think they might be by Doodlebug.  I used the MS lace border punch on the bottom of the turquoise designer paper.  The turquoise strip was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swirls folder.

Die Cuts and Flowers!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Oh my, no coloring on this card!  It was fun to use just die cuts, a punch and a stamp.  I was also able to use up some scraps for the flowers and the leaves.  The dies for the flowers are by MFT Die-namics. One is the Upsey  Daisy die and the other is the Trio Flowers and Leaves.  The butterfly is an MS punch.  I used the Simon Says Stamp ‘happy’ die and the anniversary sentiment is part of a stamp set.  A little bit of liquid pearls for the butterflies and it’s finished.  This card didn’t take very long to make!  A wonderful change.

Baby Fairy Flora

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I made this birthday card celebrating a first birthday using the “Baby Fairy Flora” digital by Mo Manning.  I used one of my favorite color combo’s of orange and pink.  I colored the digital with Copics and added Stickles stardust on the wings.  I used the square and round Spellbind dies for the layering.  The pink panel was embossed with the ‘Baby’s Breathe’ Cuttlebug folder.  The butterfly punch and the tulip border punch are both by MS.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp ‘birthday messages’.  The little candle is so cute and I used it to represent the ‘1st birthday’.

A Card For Mum

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I made another Mother’s Day card using my new Gingerbread Tilda.  I think she is probably a Christmas image but I figured you could use it for any occasion.  I chose a pink and turquoise theme for this card.  As usual I colored Tilda with Copics and then layered her on cardstock.  The hearts, love you, mum and tag are all dies from Simon Says Stamp.  The border is a die from MFT called ‘crochet border’.  Then I added a cute little hat charm to hang below the bow. Here is a picture of the card with the tag partially removed to reveal the die Mum.

April Showers…..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The old saying “April showers bring May flowers” should be changed to “May flowers bring June flower” here in my neck of the woods.  It’s been raining for the last four days.  No sun shine just dull and miserable!  Of course, it’s a great time to hang out in my craft room!

I used the rubber stamp ‘Lulu and Friends’ created by Cheryl Alger of Sassy Cheryl digital images.  I got the rubbah from Kraftin’ Kimmie’s Stamps.  The image was colored with Copics and I paper pieced the umbrella with the same designer paper as the background.  The mini roses are by Prima and the fern is a Cheery Lynn Designs die.  I can’t remember where I got the cute flower button, it could be by Doodlebug.

Mother’s Day!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve made a Mother’s Day card using the “Forget Me Not” Tilda.  This is one of two stamps that I have won.  I decided to go with yellow and blue for this cute Tilda.  The image was colored using Copic markers.  The mom sentiment is a Simon Says Stamps die.  Flowers are by Prima.  A Fiskar punch for the branch and a MS punch for the butterfly.  I added stickles liquid pearls and stickles stardust on the flowers and hair.  The doily is a die cut by Cheery Lynn Designs called ‘French Pastry’.
