Me & My Bunny

This month my card group had a Mo Manning brand card swap. I have some really old digis of hers, but I chose to use this adorable little girl stamp I got last year. It’s one of her images from Penny Black.

 

I colored her with copics and paper pieced her dress. Paper piecing is still one of my favorite things to do!

 

Thanks for stopping by!

 

Supplies~

Stamps: Me & My Bunny (Penny Black), Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU)

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

CS: Copic Xpress It, MFT Lemon Drop, MFT Cotton Candy, MFT Grapesicle

PP: Echo Park Springtime

Other: copics, SU Enamel Accents (Pink Pirouette – Subtles collection)

 

Have a Sunny Day!

A very belated Happy New Year to you all!

If you are still here, thanks for sticking with me! I have been in a major crafty funk and decided to take an extended blogging break. I’m not sure how often I will post but since I did recently make a card, I thought I would share it.

One of my card groups does a brand swap each month. It’s one of my favorites to participate in! This month the chosen company is Taylored Expressions, a long time favorite.

 

Taylored Expressions Wildflower Bouquet

 

I used copics to color in this Wildflower Bouquet image and the paper is from Authentique. I kept the layout pretty simple to focus on the beautiful flower arrangement.

 

Have a great night!

Stampin’ Up Sunday – Falling Flowers

Good morning!!

 

Danni and I are bringing back her old Stampin’ Up Sunday series! Today we are using the pretty Falling Flowers stamp set!  You can check out her post HERE!

 

This is the pile of flowers that I stamped, colored and die cut using the stamp set and coordinating die set, May Flowers. It took me HOURS!  Some of the flowers were stamped on Whisper White cardstock and lightly watercolored using the same color that I stamped the flowers/leaves in.

I then built several card bases using the same colors – Old Olive, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant and the new In-Color Sweet Sugarplum.  From there I started building my cards, adding in die cuts from the Layering Squares and Circles framelits.  In total I made 4 cards and a bookmark. I’ll share the first two cards today!

Sentiments were added using the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I needed something really small to stamp in there. I tried going with no sentiments but I didn’t like the look.

 

I’ll share the other cards soon – hopefully in the next few days!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello and Happy November (several days late lol…)

 

Today I made a card for a black & white swap. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out!

 

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Falling Flowers stamp set, Butterfly Basics stamp set and Butterflies thinlits. The layout is from Sketch~N~Scrap’s card sketch posted yesterday.

I stamped the flourish and the sentiment and then cut them out with a Layering Oval framelit.  Some texture was added to the white panel with the Brick Wall embossing folder. I then added the butterfly and several sequins to finish off the card.

 

Here is the sketch~
