Oh Baby

Hola amigos!  I've got another card to share today.  I'm just in love with MFT's a la mode girls.  I colored this cutie a while back and she has been waiting for me to use her in a card.  I used Shabby Shutters distress ink to stamp the damask design onto Ripe Avocado paper.  The tiny paper clip is from Stampin Up and it's been waiting for me to use it in a card as well.

Have a great weekend!

A Fabulous Day

Happy Friday!!  I'm so happy to finally be able to post again!  Our internet has been down for weeks and it's been driving me crazy!  Anyways, here's a card that's been waiting a while to be seen by the world. :)

Not much to tell about this card.  The butterflies were die cut out of felt and book print using PTI's  Signature Series Butterfly die.  And, that's about it. Easy peasy, right.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pink Fairy

Howdy, peeps!  I'm back today with a card I made for iCopic's design team call.

Joline's wings were stamped onto vellum paper, colored with copics and lightly sprayed with glimmer mist before attaching them to the circle panel.  Joline was colored with copics, fussy cut, and attached onto the circle panel for added dimension.  The patterned papers are from SEI and MME.  I added a few crystal swirls and individual gems to add some shine.

Thanks for stopping by!

Flowers on Vellum

Hi guys, I'm back today with a Prickley Pear card for you.

To make this card, I stamped the image with Staz On ink on vellum and colored the image from behind with copics.  Be sure to use darker colors to get a more vibrant look.  This card came together very quickly since I used a premade card base and used some paper from my scrap pile.  A few rhinestones, some twine, and a button finish off this card.

Don't forget to sign up for Prickley Pear's Round up.  Every week we search your blogs and galleries and highlight a few cards.  Each month one random winner with get some Prickley Pear goodies.  So what are you waitin for...

Hello Friend

Howdy, I'm back again with a card for this week's MFT sketch challenge. 

This card was super easy to make,  I kept the same color scheme from the CASE Study card I and just pulled paper from my scrap pile.  I happened to have this cute a la mode girl colored and waiting for me so it was just a matter of cutting and embellishing.  Yay for simple cards!!  The sentiment is from PTI's Embellishments stamp set.

Two posts in one day, not bad, huh.

Case Study

Hi guys, long time no blog, huh.  I'm back today with a card for this week's Case Study challenge.  This week's inspiration card kept running through my mind when I sat down to craft yesterday and I happened to have some butterflies colored in the inspiration colors so I just went with it.

I tried to keep as true to the card as possible without directly copying the sketch.  The orange paper is from pink paislee.  For the bottom scalloped panel, cut a piece of Hawaiian Shores cardstock, stamped my sentiment in brown ink and added two score lines on either side of the sentiment before punching the border with a Martha Stewart punch.  Some felt ric rac, an orange button, and brown twine completed this panel.  The white panel is stamped in brown with PTI's Fancy Flourishes.  I stamped the largest butterfly from Blue Skies, colored them with copics, cut them out and attached them with glue dots.  Some brown bling on the butterflies and on the bottom scallop finished off the card.

Thanks for stopping by today!
