Teen Detectives...Zoinks!

Have you all seen the new "Teen Detectives" boxed set from Kindred Stamps??? OMG it's just so cute!  SO, I sat down today and got to work with this set!  The box comes with the full stamp set, A tie dye stencil, a paper pack, sequins, glow in the dark glitter, a button and a sheet of planner stickers! OMG I'm so in love with this set! Here's the first card I made.

Here's a view from the side so you can see that one teen is popped up more than the others so it looks like she's standing in front of them! So fun!
Missing the other two from this iconic group?  They are waiting inside the card for you!

I used a different sentiment from the set as well and a second set of the teen detectives for a second card. Yeah, I know, I may have gone a little crazy here.  hehehehe

The stencil for this background was one I purchased from The Rabbit Hole Designs, but I thought it went perfect with these teens! 
Here's the last card I made today. 
I used the tie dye stencil to make this background, then I added the Liquid Pixie Dust from Ink on Three to the entire background and then sprinkled white paint over the top of it.  So much fun!

The Mistress of the Dead

Quite the ominous title huh?  Well, that's the name of the newest digital image from Annie Rodrigue over at Moonlight Whispers.  Just check out this creepy lady.....
I'll admit that this image was a challenge to color.  But a lot of that had to do with the fact that I chose to color her using the "no lines" technique.  I'm a glutton for punishment like that. 

I used two Authentique paper pads to make this card.  Nightfall and Romance.  Yeah, they do not sound like they go together at all, but I think, given the subject matter of this card, they worked out just perfectly.  I also created a couple of flowers using the Sweet Peony stamp and die set from Heartfelt Creations, and paired them with some flowers I had from Wild Orchid Crafts. I accented with Distress oxide ink in Candied Apple, a black satin ribbon, and Nuvo drops. 

Copic Markers used: 
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, FYG1, YG0000
Hair: T9, T7, T5, T3, T1, Jelly Roll silver glitter pen

Hello Mummy!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm obsessed with Egyptian mythology and history.  I just love all the tales that they wove and the vibrant and mysterious culture that they thrived in.  So, when given the choice to pick any image int he shop to participate in the Scrapper's Delights Blog Challenge.... well.... naturally I chose this awesome Mummy!!!!!!

I colored her up using my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils on Sweet Sentiment Premium Coloring Paper.  I also made the flowers by hand using Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony and Sunflower stamps and dies.  The flowers are tinted with Distress Oxide inks, as well as the background for the Mummy. The papers are just random scraps I had in my HUGE scrap tub, and the ribbon was from he dollar store.  

I had so much fun coloring this awesome Mummy Digi..... I mean, how fun.  I will admit that the sentiment is from the "Egypt" set from Kindred Stamps. 

I do believe you all should join in the challenge and check out the Blog over at Scrapper's Delights! Here's the link: https://www.scrappersdelights.co.uk/challenge-blog?fbclid=IwAR217R-ILa_jFIMJpj92N6KvXyWXs_eUkQSolbcdvZWQb-jtfcgYHuOGYfE#/  (holy long link batman!)

Hope you all enjoyed this mummy card, I'll see you all soon!  Tootles! 

A whole bunch of cuteness from Scrappers Delights!

Today I have a little something for everyone from the newest release at Scrappers Delights.  I've been busy making some of the cutest cards ever!!!!!! 

First up to bat is.... well, this adorable little batter!!!
I colored her up using my copic markers.  And placed her on a very simply laid out card using Doodlebug papers, some Nuvo drops, and a length of sheer ribbon. 

Next up is a girl after my own heart..... she's STUCK in an airport waiting for her flight.  If any of you follow my group on Facebook you know exactly how close to home this image hits! 

Again, I used my copic markers to color this sweet girl up.  She's doing exactly what I did when I was stuck last time, drinking coffee and reading a book, trying to keep a smile on her face.  I used papers from the brand new Doodlebug I <3 travel paper pad, some Nuvo drops, and a length of satin ribbon to bring this card together.  I also used Distress Oxide Ink in Vintage Photo and a sponge to add some light tan around the edges of all the papers. 

Third, is the one I think is my most favorite of them all.... and the subject of my September Sweet Sentiment coloring class.  I present to you: Marigold!

This sweet little girl I think is super excited to go back to school!  Look at all of those amazing ringlets and that adorable little summer dress!  I colored her with my trusty copic markers and placed her on papers from the ned Doodlebug Back to School paper pad.  I also used flowers that I made bu hand using the sets from Heartfelt Creations.  I finished it off with a length of sheer black ribbon and a bunch of glitter all over those flowers! 

I really hope you loved everything you saw here today.  If you'd like to purchase any fo these Digis you can get them from https://www.scrappersdelights.co.uk/#/

I like flowers

I"m sure it's not any surprise to any of you all that I'm totally into flowers on my cards.  Like, I sorta LOVE them.  A LOT! hhahaahaha! So much so, that I decided to invest a lot of money to buy dies and stamps to make my own flowers!  I enjoy it so much that I now find myself creating cards around my flowers.

When I was blessed with this new image from Moonlight Whispers by Annie Rodrigue, I KNEW I was going to go heavy on the florals. It just HAD to be done!  So...... here we go!

I began the process by stamping the flowers onto Sweet Sentiment Coloring Paper along with printing the Digital Image on the coloring paper.  I then used the coordinating dies from Heartfelt creations to cut out the flowers.  I used Distress Oxide inks to match the Graphic 45 papers I planned on using. I hand formed the flowers and then dipped them in clear glitter (of course). I colored the image with my trusty Copic markers.

After coloring and fussy cutting the main image, I used the sketch from Sweet Sentiment July Sketch Challenge to create the layout for the card.  I matted everything with black card stock, and distressed all the edges of the papers with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and a sponge. I tied the organza black bow on before I glued everything down.  Then.... well you all know what happened then.... I added flowers!!!!1 Lots and lots of flowers! 

I hope that you check out all the new images from Moonlight Whispers by Annie Rodrigue. She is my absolute favorite artist ever and I know that one day I'm going to meet her..... it's on my bucket list! hahahaha!  I also hope you all join in the Sketch Challenge from Sweet Sentiment this month!  Have a wonderful week!  Tootles! 

A delight of a card!

Ok, so don't mind my pun in the title.... but I have a card for you all to see featuring a new image from Scrappers Delights!

I adore these anime style images, I'm not sure why, but they have always spoken to me!  I love the style and how fun they are, and plus, they lend themselves to bright colors and bold backgrounds.  You all know, that's my jam!  So, here's my card:

The background is simply made with a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks layered on top of one another and blended to make a soft transition.  After that I spritzed it with water and dabbed it with a paper towel.  Then I fussy cut the image out after printing and coloring it on Sweet Sentiment Coloring paper with Copic markers.  I added a sentiment and a few Nuvo drops for texture. 

I really had a lot of fun creating this card, and I can't wait to give it to a friend!  Hope you have an awesome week and I'll see ya all soon! Tootles!
