Winnie Sunshine Delights

For the start of my card I decided to do a slimline card so I could make it look like a party was going on.  ðŸ•ºðŸ»  LOL!!  I printed one of stunning design papers from the Eden Collection on Ultimate Graphic 160gsm paper.  This paper is ASTOUNDING!!  I insert the pages into a Word doc and I don’t edit anything.  Just print it, as the color looks gorgeous on this paper.  I highly recommend it! 👍🏻

I love the new Winnie Sunshine Delights Top Banana Bundle ðŸŒž so much that I wasn’t satisfied with coloring up only one image from this amazing collection so create a scene I did!!  I’ve used Sunshine Delight BouquetSunshine Delight CheekySunshine Delight Cutest and Sunshine Delight Delicious.  If you’re interested in all the pretty gals you can find the whole set here - 10 printable black and white digi images (but honestly, grab the bundle it’s so awesome).  ðŸ˜œ

Of course I couldn’t just keep it with the girl images themselves so I added some flowers, bumble bees and butterflies from the Embellishment bundle but guess what?!!  You can buy the whole bundle OR you can buy the embellishment bundle separately which comes with the precolored AND black and white files.  Isn’t that great?!!  ðŸ˜®ðŸ¤“

I didn’t want to add too many embellishments as I wanted the images to be the main attraction. I added a few flowers and used the Super Sprigs die to add some green leaves. I think this is my new favorite die.  ðŸ¥°  I’ve used Prismacolor pencils to color on the kraft paper and have to admit I’m super happy with the way it turned out!  

Have you ever colored using pencils or Copics on kraft paper?  Did you like it?

I hope you are all keeping well!!! 
Thanks for coming by!  ðŸ’•

It's All About the Journey

Today I'm sharing a video on how to create some foam flowers using a Polkadoodle's Flower Flourish Die.

I've used this sweet polymer stamp called It's All About the Journey and paired her up with PD's Soft & Scrumptious 6 x 6 paper pack.  I layered the image atop the 

Aren't these white and peach colored foam flowers just so delicate and pretty?

I've added some extra pieces from my stash and popped in a white shabby seam binding bow.

I grabbed this sentiment from Sentimentals 6 x 6 pack and die cut using one of the Posydoodle Tags from that set.  I also add this LOVE bling from my stash. 

And here's my video!!  I hope you enjoy it!
*Well I've just realized the video volume sounds like it has static.  I am working on that to try to resolve the horrible noise.  Urgh!  Love/hate relationship with technology!

Winnie Big Bunch

Today's card showcases "Big Bunch" from the Winnie Celebrations 1 collection in a black and white image or pre-colored.  You should check out this collection.  WOWZA there are some amazing images, sentiments, awesome digital papers and more!  😮😍

Although this collection has some great papers in it, I chose to play with a newer paper pack called "Timeless Rose" and that pad comes in 6" x 6".  Soooo pretty!!   And Timeless Rose is just yet another amazing collection of crafty stuff including stencils, dies and clear stamps!!  Check it out!!  Eeeeeeeeeek!!  hee hee  When you see a whole collection of items, do you like to have everything or just bits and pieces?

And here are my Foamiran flowers using the Flower Flourish die - this die comes with 6 different layering dies but 2 styles.  I will share a video on this soon so stay tuned for that!  They are fun to use and easy to mix with other flowers you have in your stash.  I love the texture and height they add to a card but then again, that's what my cards are all about anyway.  LOL!!

And just another look at all my goodies:

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you and yours are keeping safe!
Sending warm germ free hugs,  🤣😍

Moooove It Mini Shaker

I made these cards quite some time ago but found this post in my drafts.  How could I not share this?!!  😮   They're great idea's for father's day and birthday cards.  I used my Silhouette to cut this card shape.  It took a bit of fiddling but worked out great after all!  😁

And colored the cows with my copics.

Using LED's for a Card

Today I'm sharing a video on how to enhance a card using LED light's!

This "Surprise!" image is available as a clear stamp (named "Boo"), black and white digi and even a pre-colored version!  I've colored it using my Prismacolor pencil crayons and added some fun patterns to the balloons and his party hat for some texture.

I've used the gorgeous and stunning Adalene French Vintage Shabby Chic 6 x 6 paper's.  They are soooooo pretttttttty....and I've added my usual array of flowers and embellishments including some burlap butterflies.

And here it is all lit up!!!  

Here is my video to see how I've done this.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're all staying safe!!

Stamping Bella

I love Stamping Bella images and have for sooo many years!!   When they first came out I just couldn't stop buying them. They were FUN and a lot more simpler than they are now but then same goes for my card and here's a few examples.  Don't you just giggle at yourself looking back and seeing years of growth?   It's fun!

HA HA HA look at that simple layering!   Hardly any embellishments, which to me now, is extremely hard to not add and almost foreign!  🤣🤣  I will say tho, there is a special skill to making CAS cards look good and many have the knack .... just not me.  LOL!

Well that was a fun blast from the past but fast forward to the new images and one the new lines from Stamping Bella called "Curvy Girls" and this particular one is "With a Jar of Hearts".  Isn't she just the sweetest?!!  💕

I'm sure you can tell that I've colored her using my copics and TRIED to make glass see through to the dress...tricky!!!!  I'm still practicing.  LOL!

Don't you just love my new little blue .... ummm I don't even know what this is.  LOL!!  Wheat?  I doubt it but some kind of weed anyway.  I just thought it would look cool on a card and I did like the way it turned out.  I added some gems from my stash and voila!!  Done!

Thanks for popping by!!!  I hope you're all keepin' safe.  💕
