Donut Mind If You Have A Great Birthday

Good morning friends!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using some sweet Neat & Tangled products.


This adorable image is from the Say Yes To Donuts stamp set.  I colored the sweet little girl and her donut with copics and then used the coordinating Nice & Neat Dies to diecut the image.  I used a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the donut frosting and used a black glaze pen on her eyes.  The papers are from the Doodlebug Cream & Sugar paper pad.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have A Novel Birthday

Good morning.  Today I'm sharing a birthday card using a fun Birdie Brown stamp and die set.



I love this BB Our Story stamp set ... such adorable images and sentiments.  I colored the images with copics and then diecut them using the Die-namics BB Our Story dies.  I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies from Your Next Stamp to diecut my backing paper.  I used the Die-namics Stitched Circle Stax to cut the white cardstock and then sponged yellow ink to reflect the light from the lamp.  I paper-pieced the chair and lamp shade, and then stamped the sentiment on a banner I cut using the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers Stax.  I used a black glaze pen on the little girl's eyes and the the dog's nose, and then added some enamel dots to finish my card. 

Copics Used:
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R30

Happy Birthday You Old Goat

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card I made awhile back using a fun SugarPea Designs stamp set.


This cute goat is from the Totes Ma Goats set and don't you just love that sentiment?  I colored the goat with copics and then added some twine and a button to finish the card.  I always have a hard time making male cards but I thought this would be perfect for a guy!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Seaside Wishes & Salty Kisses

Good morning!  I have a cute little mermaid swimming around on my blog today.



I made this card awhile back but forgot to share it here on my blog.  This sweet mermaid is Oona ... isn't she adorable?  I think this image has been retired but you can find lots of other beautiful mermaids in The Greeting Farm shop.  I colored this cutie with copics and used some Carta Bella papers from my stash. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have an amazing day!

Hoppy Easter

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Today I'm sharing a shaker card with some fun Lawn Fawn products.


I thought it would be fun to make a shaker card with this cute little bunny and the carrots from the Hoppy Easter stamp set.  I colored the images with copics and then diecut them using the coordinating lawn cuts.  I sponged some clouds behind the shaker and then diecut a small hill using the Stitched Hillside Borders lawn cuts.  Rather than filling the shaker with sequins I filled it with carrots!  I finished my card by adding a few sparkly sequins.

Copics used:
Bunny - E31, E30, E50
Carrots - YR18, YR14, YR12, YG17, YG03, YG01

Coffee Is Always A Good Idea

Hello blogging friends!  I thought I'd pop on quickly and share a card I made for the latest Inky Paws Challenge.


I used the fun coffee cups from the Newton Loves Coffee clear stamp set.  I stamped the cups onto Neenah cardstock and then used my copics to color them following the color theme for this challenge.  I stamped the sentiment onto a flag banner and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by.

Pack Light

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using a Saturated Canary digi. 



I colored this image ages ago but never got around to making a card with her.  Poor little cutie has been sitting in my UFO (unfinished objects) pile for a long time.  I colored the image with copics and colored pencils.  The image is quite large so I left it as the focal point and only added a few enamel dots.  I love plaid dp and the one I used here is from My Favorite Things.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Sending Warm Hugs

Good morning!  I'm sharing a card I made awhile back using some SugarPea Designs products.


This adorable duck is from the Quackers clear stamp set.  I used the SugarCuts - Chatterbox Journal Card die to cut a panel of watercolor paper and then I used distress inks to create a little puddle for the duck.  I colored the duck with copics and used the SugarCuts - Whatever The Weather to diecut the sun.  The little happy face on the sun is from the Whatever The Weather clear stamp set, as is the sentiment.  The dp is from the Whatever The Weather Patterned Paper Collection.  I added some Glossy Accents to the duck's beak and feet, and finished my card with a few sequins. 

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

That Bites!

Good morning everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using some fun stamps and dies from Avery Elle.


These fun images are from Avery Elle's That Bites clear stamp set.  I started my card by cutting a panel of watercolor paper and then I used distress ink to make a watercolored background.  I colored all the fish with distress inks and then used Glossy Accents on their eyes and teeth.  I diecut the fish using the That Bites Elle-ments.  Lastly, I added lots of sequins to imitate bubbles in the water.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
