A card I made for my mom's birthday today!!!  I normally colour an image in copics and embellish it but for my mom but I'm really loving these beautiful stamp sets from Pink Fresh.  This set is call "Be Strong".  I first stamped off the flowers and added some gold embossing powder.  Then I coloured the flowers using the stencils and the TH distress inks - Wild Honey, Peacock Feathers, Salvaged Patina, Rustic Wilderness and Mowed Lawn.

I created this slimline shaker card using Creative Expressions "Decorative Squared Rectangles" and "Large Circles Background".  I love this 3 layered "Celebrate" die from Whimsy Stamps!

Here you can see a gold butterfly I've added but this is also a shaker card so you can see the contents better in this pic as well.

I gold embossed another set of flowers using vellum and layered them beneath the coloured ones.  I also did a bunch of splatters in white and Lawn Fawn's liquid glitter.  Looks so shimmery in real life.

Pinkfresh Cards - New Style for Me!

Well I have found a new style!!  I was always wondering when the flower cards would move me and they finally did!!!  Pinkfresh has all kinds of amazing products but in these cards I have used the layering stencils the most.  In some cases they have 4-6 layers and that's how I got the stunning variety of colours using my distress oxides.  

This set of stencils is called "Friendship Blooms".  You can buy a die for them for them but it wasn't available when I purchased the stencils so I used my Brother Scan N Cut.  I layered the slimline card using Craft Consortium's Candy line paper called "Ink Drops" and the "Slim Fancy Diagonal Stripes" die from Pinkfresh.

I'm entering this card in the July "Butterfly" challenge over at Pinkfresh.

I have some more cards using PF's "Be Strong" stamp set, stencils and die.

I created the sentiment using a set of dies from waaaaay back when!  LOL!  Was happy to use some stash!  I die cut another set of flowers from vellum to layer under the coloured ones for some added depth.
I used my Silhouette to create the sentiment and the background vellum piece.  I embossed the flowers in gold and then coloured them using distress oxides. 

I am certainly having fun with these new items and am looking forward to more!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Winnie - Let's Hang Out

The latest Polkadoodles Winnie release!!  WOOOOOOO!!

The first thing I did was pick out my papers, which I always do because then I know what colours I want to use to colour up my images.  I chose the background paper from the Peeling Paint 6" x 6" paper pad (ahem - which is on sale by the way 😀) and a few more from the Adalene Craft paper pad (ahem - also on sale 😀🤣).

Introducing "Summer Dreams" from the recent Winnie's "Let's Hang Out" collection, available in black and white digipre-coloured light and pre-coloured deep skintones which all include a dxf/svg file. 

After I coloured her up using copics, I added some Wink of Stella to her daisy's.  Super sweet!

AND OH MY GOSH THE SENTIMENTS!!  You absolutely MUST check out the "Let's Hang Out" sentiment pack consisting of 37 phrases!!  😳😲 It's UH-MAZING!!

As some of you know, I really like using layers and couldn't help but add a few to this card.  I added some pretty flowers and a row of lace to top it off.  Oh!  And aren't those little pink ladybugs just so cute?!  🐞😊 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
