Sarah Kay


Hi All,
Here is a card that I made using a Sarah Kay image. I made this card for the Sarah Kay Challenge site. The theme this week is animals. Pretty easy one since most of the Sarah Kay images have animals in them. I just love these stamps. I wish I could locate some of the older images. They are so fun to color. I used my watercolor pencils from SU. Used some prima flowers for an added touch. Hope you like it. Till later.

Sugar Nellie


Hi All,
Here is a card I made that I got from Krystinah. She was willing to swap some images with me. I just love these Sugar Nellie images. I am going to have to purchase some of the stamps for myself. I took another stab at using my copics and this one turned out much better. I think it may have to do with the paper. Anyway hope you enjoy it.

Magnolia



Hi All,
Here is another Magnolia card. This is my first attempt with my new copic markers. I am not sure I liked how it turned out. I had alot of bleeding of the markers into areas I didn't want. Also, if anyone has an idea to the following I would greatly appreciate it. When using the copics it seemed the ink would all of a sudden just flow out of the tip. Is there something I am doing wrong? Thanks for any advice for coloring with these.

Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge

I colored the witch with my watercolors from SU and the pumpkin and cat were colored with my Copics. I am still getting use to those. Hope you enjoy.

Magnolia


Hi All,
I am finally getting to use some of my fall collection from Magnolia, so you will be getting to see all of these images. This is my first time inking them up. I know it took too long. This is another simple card, where I layered a few colors and then just placed the trees and Tilda sitting on it. Hope you enjoy.
Also check out Danni's blog for some great blog candy. She is getting close to her 1 year anniversary for her blog. She has some great cards and ideas.
Till later

Magnolia


Tilda giggling, I think this stamp is one of my new favorite ones. There are so many possibilities with it. I colored her with my water-color pencils, blended and then cut her out. I placed her on the bench. I layered a few different color cardstocks behind her and placed a ribbon on the card. I am stuck on the snowflakes, probably because we got close to 2 feet of snow over the weekend. Till later hope you enjoy.

H&S


Oh My Gosh, I just love these H&S images. I wish I was able to purchase the stamp itself. I actually found a blogging friend in the UK that was willing to swap some images with me. She is so cute. I layered her onto pink and then just put a few flowers down the side. Clean and simple. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Magnolia

Magnolia



Hi All,

I am having some problems with my blog tonight. Won't let me choose a color for the font, and I am having problems inserting a picture correctly. So all I can do is hope this looks ok. On this card I layered some designer paper over some pink cardstock and used toddler tilda. I put some flower on it in no randum order and also added the Magnolia teddy bear. Hope you like it.

Magnolia


Hi All,
I got this stamp from a friend the other day, so I thought I would give it a try. I used a green cardstock, then layered some designer paper on it that appears to look like wood. I added some prima flowers and a little wire to break it up a tad. I am not sure I like the way it turned out, have some mixed feelings on this one. Till later.

Here is a new card that I made. I just love this stamp of tilda. It has so many different styles you can give it. I used baby blue cardstock as my background and just did some layers of designer paper, then a pink cardstock. I added some flowers for extra color. Well hope you enjoy.

Hi All,

I know I have been gone for a while, but the flu has made its way through our house, and hit both girls hard this week. But I wanted to let you know of some sites giving some great blog candy.
http://creatiefonline.blogspot.com/2008/09/eindelijk-finaly.html Take a look at this one, its really hard to get these stamps unless you live in Norwary or Sweeden. Just love them.

I will try to post a card a little later.
