Belles & Whistle Birthday Card

Here's the second post for today. My cousin's 30th birthday is tomorrow and I wanted to make her a special card. I attempted my first ever criss cross card. It was actually easier than I thought it would be. I kept it clean and simple (which is also this week's challenge over at BNW). I colored her with copics and used one of my new nestabilities for the circle. The paper is from MME.

Hope you like it.

Cute and Cuddly from Pollycraft

Almost Friday!!! (yeah!). I have two quick posts for your today. The first is a wedding card that I made using the cute bride and groom image from Pollycraft. I just love these bears. Their challenge this week is Cute and Cuddly. I kept it very simple. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The image is colored with copics and some stickles for a little bling.

Thanks for stopping by.

More Sneak Peeks for The Stamping Boutique

Hello again. I'm back with two more sneak peek cards for The Stamping Boutique's new releases on September 18th. The first one is the Ice Princess image. I colored her with copics and added some white and silver stickles for a little glam. The edges were distressed with weathered wood TH distress inks and the snowflake is a Quickutz die that I added some glitter to.

The second card is this darling gingerbread man image. For this image, I colored it with prisma pencils and OMS. Again, I added some stickles and foam dots to make the image stand out. The snowflake border punch is from Fiskars.

Don't forget to check out The Stamping Boutique at PCP for it's Digi Day on September 18th.

Sneak Peek from The Stamping Boutique

I have another post for you today. Tracey over at The Stamping Boutique has been working extra hard to bring us some fabulous new images. She will be releasing these images in the store on September 18th. There is also a Digi Day planned for the release at Paper Craft Planet, so be sure to head over there and join if you're not already a member. There will lots of fun and games.
Remember Candyland? Doesn't this image take you back to your childhood year's and the fun you had playing this game? I colored it with copics and added several different colors of stickles. This image just begs for sparkles. I have two more cards with sneak peeks to share with you later today, so be sure to check back.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sprinkled with Love

Happy Tuesday! Today I'd like to share a card with you that I made for my son to give to his girlfriend for her birthday. The image is from Belles-n-Whistles. I'm entering it this week's challenge, which is to use lace. It may be a bit of a stretch but I'm counting the Lacey Heart punch from Martha Stewart as my lace and the border punch. I colored the image with copics and distressed the edges of the paper and added some TH Distress Crackle Paint to all the edges. The circle sentiment is from Cat's Life Press and the sentiment inside is from Tiddly Inks Digital Stamps.

Best Wishes from The Stamping Boutique

Hello. I'm back from vacation but unfortunately my mind has stayed in Mrytle Beach. I haven't had time to unpack or anything else productive. Since I've been MIA for a while, I wanted to put together a card real quick this morning. The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring this week's challenge over at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog. The challenge over there is to use the sentiment Best Wishes on your card or project. I used the Audrey with Ladybugs image from TSB. If you haven't been over to the shop yet, please stop over at The Stamping Boutique and check out the new images.

Sorry this post is short. Gotta go to work. Thanks for stopping by.
