Birthday Balloons

Good Morning! I have exciting news, I have rejoined the fantastic design team which showcases Scrapper's Delights digital stamps and today is a new release of some super cute Chibis. Just look at the super deals you can get if you purchase them from the store:

The image I am sharing with you is Chibis Balloons:

 I colored him with my alcohol markers before die cutting the image into a circle.
I matted an 8 x 8 inch card base with red card and some water color effect design paper. I then die cut a large circle from the same red card. This was adhered to my card along with my little Chibis. I then cut a "knot" to make my red circle into a balloon a glued some string around this and draped it off my card. I added some shine to my balloon with a white gel pen and finished off by curving Happy Birthday die cuts around my image

New Home

Good morning, we are expecting more winter storms today and we are heading out to a birthday party so I am hoping that they aren't that bad!

Today's card is a new home card using my favorite CAS style:

I started with a white piece of card and masked the top and bottom of it. I then used a blending brush to blend 2 shades of purple dye ink in the center of the card. I then used stamps from 4 Crafter's Companion sets. Using fine black ink I stamped the little toadstool village from Fairy Magic along the bottom edge of my blended section. The stamp was a little short so I lined it up again and stamped it again filling the lower edge of the purple section, I love stamps that you can do this with.
My little fairy is from Fairy Door stamp set and I gave her fairy dust from the Sparkle Garden set.
Once this was all dry I stamped Home Sweet Home sentiment from Love Blooms.
I made a 5x7 inch card base from white card and matted this with purple and black card. I then added my stamped card.
I few little purple glitter dots just balanced the card.

Hello! I'm slowly getting back to blogging and have decided it was time for a name change. I have had this name in my head for a while now so decided to let it free and use it!

Today's card is using some gorgeous stamps from SumMore Fun, unfortunately the company is for sale but this means they are having some fantastic sales so check out their Facebook page for super deals.

I have used 2 stamp sets on this card, the first Growing Love is has some pretty and quirky flowers as well as some accents that you can use on the flowers or along side of them. I chose one of the main flowers which looks like a dandelion, I stamped it in a light grey color. I think used a stippled effect stamp from same stamp to look like the floating seeds.
The sentiment I stamped in green is from Flourishing Thoughts stamp set. it has a large selection of sentiments that can be used for any type of card.
I matted a 4.25 x 5.5inch card base with green card in a shade similar to my sentiment ink and then added my stamped topper. 
I added some iridescent white gems among the 'seeds' for added interest.

Have a "woofly" Day

Good morning from a freezing Michigan. We have had some really cold weather with snow and ice storms and it's not over yet but that gives me more of an excuse to stay inside and craft. 

Today's make is a cute card as part of my application to Jo's Scrap Shack design team. I couldn't resist this Corgi from Some Odd Girl and thought him just right to show off my CAS style:

Isn't he the cutest? I printed him on to X-press It cardstock and colored him with alcohol markers. To keep this clean I just typed up a sentiment on my pc and printed this along side the little guy. I matted the topper onto 2 shades of brown card and added them to a 5x7in card base.
Simple but cute card!
