Oh S%!#!!!

Yeah, so at some point this whole Coronavirus thing is going to end.... so I decided to make a card that reflected THAT sentiment exactly..... here it is:

The image is a Digi from Moonlight Whispers by Annie Rodrigue which was printed on Xpress it Blending stock.... Wow I haven't used that paper for a long time, and let me tell you.... I used to be a snob and only use that paper! NOT ANYMORE!!!! I HATE it now.  I'm a Sweet Sentiment Paper Snob in every sense of the word!  

Anyways, I busted open a new doodlebug paper pack and went to town with it.... So happy I did, these super bright colors and geometric patterns are perfect for the layers of this card. 

I heat embossed the sentiments which are from Ink Road Stamps. Then I added Stickles to it, because it needed a little sparkle. 

I hope you love this card.  I thought it was kind of hilarious.  I tend to handle the most serious of situations with humor, so this was totally right up my alley.  

Ok, I need more coffee.... as usual... talk to you all later... toodles! 

PND Puppies out for a walk

I don't think our dogs have ever been for so many walks as they have been because of this crazy Covid-19 thing!  Wow!  It's kind of fun to see what kind of dogs everyone in the neighborhood has though.  I usually only just hear them barking from behind the fence. 

I colored this Paper Nest Dolls image, because, well, because I hadn't colored it since last summer.  I put it on a card using a bunch of Doodlebug papers!  I just love it, that's all I have to say! Lol. the class video is still available, and you can still purchase this stamp from Paper Nest Dolls. 

Ok I REALLY need a coffee, So off to the coffee pot I go.  Toodles! 

Polka Dot Orchard Project

Well, now that we all have a little time to stop and smell the roses, IF you can smell them through the face mask you're supposed to be wearing, I've branched out a bit and found a new company with awesome digit to play with!  That new company is named Polka Dot Orchard!!! Seriously though, you should totally check them out.

I found this amazing Rose Digi and I cannot stop coloring!  OMG I LOVE it so much!!!!! Check it out.

Copic Markers Used: R56, R85, R83, R81, YR21, Y21, Y000, BG96, G94, YG63, G24, G20

I added this amazing image to some incredible Authentique papers and added a few Nuvo drops in a soft translucent gray color.  The satin ribbon was from Hobby Lobby I believe. I just love how this card came out, it's not my usual style, but it was fun to push myself to do something soft and beautiful.  

Ok, I need more coffee, so here I go.  Don't forget to stop and smell the roses, visit Polka dot Orchard, and WASH YOUR HANDS!!!! Toodles! 

Springtime fun

Hi friends,  With all of the scare crud out in the world right now, I've been coloring a lot more.

Today I'm going to share with you a sweet little card I made using an Image from Paper Nest Dolls.  I think that I ALWAYS go back to PND when I need to get my mind off of things and just color.  I love the images for their perfect simplicity and yet, they have enough detail to keep me occupied.  They just make me smile.  This new image is no acceptation..... check it out.
As usual, I colored her up using my comic markers after printing her on Sweet Sentiment Coloring paper.  I also used the Sweet Sentiment Mandala Stencil to make the background.  I love using my paper with the Distress Oxide inks. They just blend like buttahhhhh on it.  Anyways.... I colored her up and cut her out and then used pop dots on the back to give the card some dimension.  The sentiment is from the Sweet Sentiment Stamps "April Showers" stamp set. Then I added a few clear Nuvo Drops, and there you have it!   I hope that you love it and it makes you smile.

I'm off to get another cup of coffee.... Toodles!!! 

Sadness...but not me!

Yeah, so I"m not sad, It's just the name of the character that this stamp was based from.  I just adore her too.... she makes me giggle.... I'm not sure why.  But, her innate ability to turn EVERYTHING into something glum is pretty epic. 

This adorable i'mage is from Kindred Stamps and is part of a set called "The Feels."  I colored her up with my Polychormo pencils from Faber Castell and then I popped her on this awesome background. The Background was ink blended with a secret stencil in a few colors of blue Distress Oxide Inks.... I just grabbed a bunch of blues and went to town, so, I can't really tell you which ones I used.  I finished her off with a sentiment from the set as well that I simply head embossed with white embossing powder on black card stock and a ribbon from the doable bin at Michaels. 

I'd live to tell you that this was a quick A2 card, but pencil coloring is NEVER quick.  So I'll tell you it was an easy A2 card, and it will be great to send to a friend when that person is feeling a bit down. 

Thanks for stopping by today! Big hugs! 

I'm off to get another cup of coffee, it's 7 am and I'm not nearly caffeinated enough! Toodles! 

Hope it doesn't suck

Ok, so you all know I like to use stamp sets in ways that are unique and maybe even not the intended purpose.  That's why I try to make all o fly stamp sets super versatile.  The Stamp set "I Hope it Doesn't Suck" is no acceptation to the rule..... Check out these cards that I made today...

This is the Image as I colored it in the class for January.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this came together.  She is so sassy and just looks like a person I would totally be friends with.  She has attitude, and it not into this workout at all! hahahahaha!

Today, I colored her in a TOTALLY different way, I made her a ginger! hahaha!  I really wanted to use some bright and fun spring time looking papers, and this card allowed me to do just that.  

This just goes to show you, you can color any stamp in any way, you just have to let your imagination go a little wild.  That's the fun in getting crafty!

Now, I'm off to make some more coffee! I'll see ya all soon!  Toodles!!!! 

I'm Owl right.

Hey there friends and Sweeties!  I'm here sharing the second day of the Rabbit Hole Designs release. This one is all about little owls.  The newest set is called "Owl Right" and I'm showing you just a tiny piece of the cuteness.

I used a piece of Sweet Sentiment coloring paper and ink blended with some Distress Oxide inks on the bottom half of it.  I stamped the Owl above that and colored him in with Copic markers.  Then I added some Nuvo Drops and a ribbon.  I also used an older TRHD set for the sentiment.  

If you noticed, there's a whole bunch of owls on the stamp, but I masked them off and used only the one on the bottom right hand corner.
