I got to play with the adorable Birds 2 Dies for my blog hop project! These guys are so cute! =)


I cut them out using PTI's Rustic White cardstock, colored them with Copic markers then added a few layers for dimension.


By gluing cutouts from the same Birds 2 Dies on the card front, I created a textured background for my colored ones. The speech bubble and sentiment are from the new Hello Sampler set.

That's all I have for now. Don't forget to leave comments along the way for a chance to win! Have fun hopping and good luck! =)

CAS(E) This Sketch #174

Hi ya, all! =) New sketch is also up over at CAS(E) This Sketch! First is this week's sketch.


Here is my take on it.


I knew I had to try no-line coloring this beauty the first time I saw it! =)

Winston & Milly

Happy Sunday, my friends! =) Here is another card that I made using some images from Purple Onion Designs' newly released Garden Blooms Collection.


After I started coloring the ground/grass, I realized that the logical solution is that the grass extend to the bottom of the card and so it went on and on and on... =)


The little Winston and Milly are stamped on Papertrey Ink's Rustic White cardstock, colored with Prismacolor colored pencils then fussy cut out.


I used the lovely Garden Bushes as their distant background. And the sentiment is called You Are So Wonderful and is also released with the Garden Blooms Collection.

That's all I have for now. Don't forget that you have until May 30th, 2016 to purchase the entire Garden Blooms Collection at a discounted price and you can also see all the individual images here! =)

Have a sweet day and thanks for stopping by!

Tiny Townie Bonnie Loves Bows

Happy Friday, my friends! =) Here is my card for this week's Bellarific Friday Challenge over at the Stamping Bella Blog!


It's an inspiration challenge week and here is the inspiration photo.


I took the black, white, red and pink colors from the photo and used them on my card.


I inked up the sweet Tiny Townie Bonnie Loves Bows with Antique Linen Distress Ink, colored her with Copic markers then die cut the image using the matching die.


The patterned paper is from the C'est La Vie 6x6 paper pad by Pink Paislee and the sentiment die is from Paper Smooches' Hugs & Kisses Wise Die set.

That's all for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's challenge and see all the challenge details over at the Stamping Bella Blog! =)

CAS(E) This Sketch #172

Hi ya, all! =) New sketch is up over at CAS(E) This Sketch! First is this week's sketch.


Here is my card.


I know this is a very liberal take on the sketch, but I tend to think that the whole grey area with pattern is the area that I can play with in the sketch. =)


The forest and Mr. Fox are from Papertrey Ink's Warmest Wishes set. They are stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink and colored with Copic markers. The forest is stamped on the card base and Mr. Fox is cut using the matching die.


The sentiment is from My Favorite Things' super versatile Label Maker Sentiments set and Label Tape die.

That's all I have for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over at CAS(E) This Sketch! =)
