Play Ball!

Audrey is ready to play some baseball ! :) I had to make this card for our friends who have a little girl who just started playing T-Ball! Hopefully she will love it. I colored Audrey (The Greeting Farm digital stamp) in her team colors - which are Red Sox colors! I hand wrote the B on her shirt which didn't come out so good lol!

Base is PTI Enchanted Evening, pink layer is Prism (not sure what color), and pattern paper is from Cosmo Cricket Delovely collection. The sentiment is created from Cosmo Cricket tiny letters - my fav! I used some red/white twine to try to tie the colors together. The brads are AC white, which I colored with Copic markers.

This was my first time trying out digital images. I must say it turned out well. There was some bleeding - you have to be careful and not color over the lines. And also, I wasn't sure about sizing of the image - she came out larger than I intended!

The sketch is another fun one from Club Anya blog from this Saturday. They have various challenges throughout the week -- sooo helpful when you need a little boost of creativity :).

Thanks for stopping by!

Alice in Wonderland

After seeing beautiful cards with Sweet Pea Stamps on Tammi's blog Tropical Dreams, I had to check them out. Then Michelle of Bella Kitty Creations sent me some stamped images and I was convinced. I placed an order!!

My card uses the stamp Alice Queen of Tarts by Elaine Cox. You can find it at the Sweet Pea Stamps store. I used October Afternoon Fly a Kite line. The base is Prism cardstock that is matched (from Die Cuts R Us). Teal cardstock from SU! matches pretty well. Ribbon is from A Muse. This was a lot of Copic coloring!

Hope you had a great weekend!

Little Sweetie

Here is a mini-card using a sketch from Hero Arts Blog. Shari (who is so talented) posted these sketches that you can find here. I can't keep up with Hero Arts. They have new Summer stamps that I'm seeing that are so beautiful. I still have so many uninked ones from their line. Maybe this weekend I'll devote some time to Hero Arts!

Again, this little girl is from a sparkle clear set called You're The Best. I used Cosmo Cricket Delovely pattern papers. PTI Raspberry Fizz base that I embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. The swirls are from Sizzix Die called Floral Bouquet (I think). It's from the Hello Kitty line.

Hope you have a nice weekend!!

Hi Cutie

I finally got to play with this little Hero Arts image (from Sparkle clear set called You're the Best) and some new Cosmo Cricket Delovely papers. What bright and fun colors for summer! I used the sketch from ABC Design Blog Sketch Challenge.

I used the coordinating Delovely stickers (falling in love with these things!), American Crafts thickers for the "hi", Sizzix dies for the flourishes and some gems. The base papers and ribbon are PTI Raspberry Fizz which matches well.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Sweet Bunny

This bunny is just the sweetest thing I've ever seen ! :) It's The Greeting Farm Maggie Bunny. I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers #104. What a fun one to use!

I used (again) Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety pattern papers layered on Bazzill Bling and SU! Vanilla base. I bought some Jenni Bowlin tickets which are so cute! The sentiment is from Hero Arts Sparkle Clear set. A quick card that I sent off to a fellow crafter ;) !

Thanks for stopping by!

Ring Ring Hello

Here are 2 cards I will add to the notecard set (see my previous post) and gift to my fiance's Mom. I think she'll like the cards! These use the phone image and "hello" sentiment from Lawn Fawn set called Just My Type.

This card uses American Crafts ribbon and Hero Arts Woodgrain stamp. I wanted to use the fun ribbon so the colors are all based on that.

This card uses October Afternoon Thrift Shop papers. I got some fun vintage ribbon from Limelight Papercrafts so I tried a shabby technique. I used Tattered Rose Distress Ink on the edges of the papers. The doily edge is from a Martha Stewart border punch.

Thanks for visiting today!
