Have a tail-waggin' terrific day!

Happy Friday to all of you.  There's a new release on the StampFairy Blog.


This cute little puppy is Hugo ... kinda reminds me of my little Yorkie Terrier.  He's colored with copics and colored pencils and I applied some Glossy Accents to his nose.  This card is going to my grandson and he always looks to see if I've used the "shiny stuff" on the animal noses lol!  I used my Sizzix paw print embossing folder on the white cardstock but it doesn't really show very much since I layered the image on top of it.  I added some brads and buttons to finish my card.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Hugs, Anita

A Sparkly Bubble Bath

Good morning sweet stamping friends.  Today I'm sharing a card with an adorable Lili of the Valley image.


Isn't this bunny couple just the cutest?  I won this stamp in a giveaway that sweet Elaine had.  I adore Lili of the Valley images and I know they just came out with a new release.  I haven't even been to their website to check it out because I know I'm going to want way too many of them :)  I'm trying to be good and use my stamps that have never seen ink.  OK, so on to my card.  I used copics and colored pencils.  I added Creative Inspirations Paints to the champagne and water to give them some sparkle.  And do you see that flower?  I made that with the My Favorite Things Loopy Bloom Die-namic.  I've had that die for the longest time but hadn't used it.  I have to say I love the big soft flowers that it makes ... kinda reminds me of a bunny tail too. 

Creative Inspirations Paints also has a challenge blog and you can get all the details here.  You have a chance to win some of their fabulous paints if you play along in the challenges. 

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a great day!

I'm a TGF Premiere Farmer!

Hello sweet friends!  Well, as you've probably guessed from my post title, I've been asked to be a Premiere Farmer for The Greeting Farm.  I have been so excited and it's been really hard to keep this little secret to myself :) 

So let me share one of the newest stamps being released ... Shiny Bean.  I have two cards to show you today.


Isn't she absolutely adorable?  I love those long braids and she's so easy to color!  I used copics and colored pencils and added some Glamour Dust on her wings, stars, and butterflies.  I made a rosette from some lace and added a flower, some butterflies and a few pearls.


For my next card, I decided to use some brighter colors.  Again she's colored with copics and colored pencils and I've used Glamour Dust for some sparkle.  I added a doily, a bow, and a few buttons.  I put a tiny little glittered star on the bow, along with a floss bow.

OK, now you need to head over to The Greeting Farm Blog to see who else is going to be a premiere farmer this term.  You'll also get to see their gorgeous projects :)  We're having previews all week so be sure to stop by to check out the rest of the new stamps.

Seashells at the Seashore

Hello crafting friends.  Today over on the All That Scraps Blog the design team is sharing some new cards we've made with the stamps and dies from the June release.

Happy hump day friends!  I want to apologize for not having been round to visit your blogs lately.  We took a little trip out of state and most days I didn't have any luck getting an internet connection.  Now that I'm home I will be catching up on your gorgeous makes soon :)  Anyway, I have a sweet Sugar Nellie card to share today.



This little cutie is Bloom & Grow from Sugar Nellie's Home Grown Manga collection.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils and used glitter paint on her dress button and the flower on her apron.  I added some twine, a button, and a little watering can diecut.  I love the sentiment and it's by Flourishes.  You can find this stamp and all the other fabulous Sugar Nellie stamps over at Funky Kits

Happy Belated Birthday

Today is a CC Designs review day over on the All That Scraps Blog and I'm sharing a fun new card I made with the June release.


I used the Sweet November Betsy to make my card.  I'm not sure who I'll send this card to but since I always seem to be late with birthday cards it will definitely come in handy :)  I used copics and colored pencils to color the image and then added Glamour Dust to her sparklers.  The sentiment is from the new AmyR Oh So Beachy stamp set.  I also used the Curly-Q border die on my card.

Be sure to stop by the All That Scraps Blog to check out the gorgeous work by the rest of the DT.

You're The Best!

Hello friends.  It's Friday so that means we have a fabulous new release to share with you over on the StampFairy Blog.  So, do you love dogs?  If you said yes, then I think you're gonna love these new images!


This is Charlie ... isn't he adorable?  He's colored with copics and colored pencils and of course I had to use Glossy Accents on his nose.  I used my pawprint border punch by EK Success - I love this punch but I seldom remember to use it when making animal cards :(  The "woof" bone?  Well, that's another freebie from Gerda!



Here's the entire Charlie Happy Life collection.  Please stop by the StampFairy Blog to see the fabulous work by the rest of the DT.  I know you're going to love their creations.

Make A Wish

Hello friends.  I don't have a card to share with you today.  I decided to try something a little different.


This is a plaque I made for my niece's room.  The beautiful fairy is Sugar Nellie's Make a Wish from Funky Kits.  I colored my image with copics and colored pencils and then added Glamour Dust to the star and her wings.  The wooden frame was very inexpensive and I picked it up at a local craft store.  I painted the frame first and then used Mod Podge to adhere some dp.  I added some sheer ribbon tied into a bow for a hanger.  I first glued my diecut flourishes and then some gorgeous WOC flowers.  Then I cut a few butterflies from my CC Designs butterfly border, added a pearl and then glued them to the frame. 


Here's a closeup of the image.  I think my niece will really like this as she loves fairies and sparkle!  This plaque was so much fun to make ... I think you may be seeing more of these kinds of projects on my blog :)


Thank you for stopping by.

Cuddle Time

Hello friends.  Today I've pulled out another stamp I've had for awhile but never got inky.  I've really been trying to use some of my stamps that have been collecting dust :)


I absolutely love this image called Milly Cuddle Time by Lili of the Valley.  I mean what's not to love - a cute girl, a puppy, and a kitty - so sweet!  I used my copics and colored pencils to color this adorable trio.  I added some Glossy Accents to their noses and the kitty's paws.  A bow, some pearls, and a little butterfly finish my card.  My sentiment is from the Precious Remembrance Shop

Birthday Wishes

Good morning friends.  I hope you're having a great weekend so far :)  I have a sweet little angel to share today.


This gorgeous little girl is Rosie by Sugar Nellie.  Isn't she a doll?  I've had her for quite awhile and finally found some time to color her.  She's colored with copics and colored pencils.  I added lots of Glamour Dust to her halo, wings, and the flowers on her dress.  I added a bow with a little WOC flower and a sentiment tag.  And of course since there's already some sparkle, I threw on a few pearls too.

You can find Rosie and lots of other beautiful stamps over at Funky Kits.  If you would like a chance to win some of these fabulous stamps, be sure to check out the Sugar Bowl Challenge.  There's still a few more days to join in their current challenge.

Congratulations

Good morning stamping friends.  It's finally Friday ... yeah!!!   I didn't think the weekend was ever gonna get here :)  I've got a new StampFairy release to share with you today.


This sweet thing is Molly Graduation.  I colored Molly with copics and colored pencils and used a border punch by EK Success on her backing paper.  I added a few stars and some twine with a button.  I have no idea who made the papers - they were pieces from my scrap pile. 


Here's the new collection, along with a freebie from Gerda :)  If you are working on graduation cards for your family or friends, visit the shop and pick up these cuties.  Don't forget to stop by the StampFairy Blog to see the fabulous makes by the rest of the dt.

This little fella is perfect for those graduation cards you may need to make.  He's from the Barry Graduation collection.  I colored him with copics and colored pencils and then added some glossy Accents to his nose.  A bow and a button finished my card.


Here's the entire new collection which you can find in the shop here.  Be sure to stop by the StampFairy Blog for some fabulous inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs, Anita
