Marcella has just released a WHOLE bunch of brand new digital stamps for you!  She has a whole bunch of her star studded clear stamp images and has made them in a digi form.

Today I’m working with the new “Bring Home Some Sunflowers” originally from the “Sunny Harvest” clear stamp collection. 

I printed out 3 identical images of the wrapped sunflower bouquet and built a 3-D version of the bouquet.

Here’s the list of all the Copic Markers that I used to colour in my image…

Love is in the Air!

Happy Hump Day everyone!   I’ve been having fun with my “Love is in the Air” collection of Catherine Pooler Designs. The whole collection were originally released as a Stamp of Approval collection and are now available for individual purchase in the CP Shop!

I pulled out my collection containing…
Can you believe that all came together in one awesome package???  Another awesome reason to sign up for the Stamp of Approval email list!  You are not obligated to buy the collection but it just allows you to receive the buyers link when the next collection becomes available.  Click HERE for more info!

So I created two fun cards using all of the CP amazing inks!  This time I played with almost solely the Spa Collection of inks in the Zen Garden Collection.

For the first card I used one of my most favourite back ground stamps by Catherine, the Plaid Background Stamp.

And I had a ball creating a Zen Garden rainbow for my second card.

Don’t forget to check out all the other fun NEW stuff in the Catherine Pooler Designs Shop: including the Sunny with a Side of Sparkle Collection just released today too.

Sea You Soon!

Over at Splitcoaststampers for the Card Sketch challenge, we are celebrating our 700th sketchWOWSERS!

Cathy McCauley is up this week for the sketch and she chose to go right back to the challenge’s roots and relive the very first sketch again.  And here it is…

It’s a fairly simple one isn’t it?

I chose to use some of the newest goodies from my mailbox, some new Studio Katia stamps and stencils.  I used the new “Under the Sea” stamp set and the “Brush Stroke Waves Stencil” to create my card today.

And I even used the super fun “Pivot Pop-Up” die from Lawn Fawn to create a an interactive inside to my card…

Thanks for stopping by!
