Bowl of Beauty

Happy Saturday! As you can tell I’ve been been super creative all week.  And today’s goodies have to be my favourite of all my projects this week.


These two card feature the brand new digi from Power Poppy called “Bowl of Beauty”… and boy… was this new stamp set rightly named!  It’s a stunner!


I spent many hours colouring these two images using Copic Markers and then adding more fine detail with my Polychromos Pencils.

Which one is your favourite?  The peach one…

A close up…

Both cards feature sentiments from the "Party Time" stamp set.

Or the blue-ish – purple one?

A close up of this one…

I say I love both but the peach one totally takes my heart!!

Now… check out what my fellow digi gals have to share today…

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you love my cards as much as I do!

Happy Crabapple!

Happy Friday all! Here in Southern Alberta we have had some above zero temperatures for a few days so our big mounds of snow are slowly melting.  We still have quite a large drift of snow in the front yard yet just because it was so massive plus the sun doesn’t shine all day on the front lawn like it does for the back yard.

Today I’m decided to work with the Power Poppy’s “Happy Crabapple” stamp set.  Isn’t it magnificent?

Here’s a little close up of the Copic Marker detail in behind the image…

I love how it turned out especially with that bold polka dot patterned paper called Black Tie Gala by CPD. (Psssttt… this whole patterned paper bundle can be FOILED!!!)

Now check out this Weekend Stamp steal...
 



Thanks for dropping by today!  I hope you have some time to get crafty this weekend!

Easter Bunny Artist

Happy Thursday everyone!  I'm over on the Gerda Steiner Designs blog today and I'm going to be watercoloring a digital image using some ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers.
With Easter only a few weeks away, I thought I would build a scene using some of the fun images from the "Easter Bunnies Digital Stamp Bundle".  This is digital bundle is a great investment!  It has 4 bunny images along with all kinds of Easter accessories.

So join me at my crafty desk and find out how I watercolored this adorable digital image...


Here's my card once again...

Blast Off!!

Hello krafty friends!  Today is INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY - the day we provide you with a bit of extra crafty inspiration to help you get creative with your krafty stamps!


Today I'm going to share my fun interactive card featuring the super cute stamp set, Blast Off!
I first stamped my cute spaceship and planet images using "Wicked Black" ink. This ink is Copic Marker safe so I pulled out my markers and coloured up all my images. 
So as an interactive card, all you do is pull those gold cardstock pieces out a bit and the spaceship will move a little amoung the stars.
You'll also notice to make the glass on the spaceship look real, I layered a piece of clear acetate over top of the window lines and then made a few slits on the body of the ship to tuck it in to adhere it more firmly to the whole piece on the back.
 
I also used the adorable "Starburst Stencil" for my back ground.  I used some Ranger "Perfect Medium" ink which is sticky through the stencil then I brushed on some Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls onto the sticky stars.  I just makes that sky super sparkly along with this little mini gold stars!   
And guess what??  This awesome stamp set is on SALE in the Krafty Shop all week long!  So hop on over and grab it!

Happy Kraftin'!

Rainbows & Bears!

Happy Wednesday!  Today is my day to share a new card sketch over at Splitcoaststampers!

I decided to go for some stripes in my design this week…  Check out the sketch HERE!

I decided to pull out some of my adorable Purple Onion Designs stamps and color them up so I grabbed the sweet little “Oakley” bear and added lots of color!

To build the striped back ground, I first stamped all of the candles and stars from the Catherine Pooler Designs “Birthday Icons” and “Milestone Birthday Sentiment Mix” stamp sets in KKS “Wicked Black” ink.  Then I cut apart the whole panel into 4 pieces and sprayed it using my Copic Airbrush system.

A super easy and quick card!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a creative rest of the week!

For my project I chose to pull out my Canvo (a fabulous bullet journal) and create my first page for April.  I grabbed my brand new “Fawn’d of You” stamp set because I wanted to use that sweet little girl in rubber boots.  I mean, what says “Spring” more than rubber boots right?!?!


I stamped our little girl and the little bunny in Marvellous Mocha ink. I also added some of the leaves from the “Dino-Mite Pals” stamp set to my scene as well.



I coloured my images using Polychromos Pencils and the used my Copic Airbrush system to add the sky colour in to the back ground.


For this month's challenge, just make sure to include a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and make sure it's a NEW creation! As soon as we have at least five people playing, we'll be giving away a PRIZE!!! yep! One lucky krafter will WIN a $20 gift voucher to the krafty shop!
