Happy Birthday

Good morning!  I've got a sweet little birthday card using stamps and dies by Gerda Steiner Designs.


This birthday bunny is from the Happy Hoppy stamp set.  I colored the bunny, balloons, and bumble bee with copics and then diecut them with the coordinating dies. I used distress inks to sponge the grass and clouds onto my cardbase.  I used a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the balloons and used a black pen to add the balloon strings.  I added some Glamour Dust to the bee's wings and adhered the images with foam tape for some dimension. 

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

Hugs, Anita

Snow Much Love

Good morning everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card with an adorable winter image from Sassy Cheryl's.


It's no secret that I adore snowmen!  I love coloring them and I love making cards with them.  If you are also a lover of snowmen then be sure to check out Sassy Cheryl's Illustrations because she has lots of adorable snowmen!  This digi is called Snow Much Love.  I think the cute little kids hugging the snowman is just so sweet and this was so much fun to color.  I printed the image on Neenah and colored it with copics.  I used a stitched scalloped rectangle die to cut out the image and simply layered it onto some red cardstock.  I added some Glamour Dust to the ground to make it look snowy and frosty.  I also added a diecut snowflake that I covered with Glamour Dust, then added a glittery enamel dot to the center.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Anita

Space Explorer

Good morning everyone!  I've got a fun shaker card using some stamps and dies from My Favorite Things.


I used a cute little astronaut from the BB Space Explorer stamp set.  I colored him with copics and then fussy cut him.  I used the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die to cut my white cardstock and layered it over the green dp.  I cut the circle frame with the Stitched Circle Frames die.  I applied distress inks to some watercolor paper to create the galaxy and added some sequins to create the shaker card.  I used a black glaze pen on the astronaut's eyes. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita

Get Well Soon

Good morning everyone!  I've got a sweet card using some stamps and dies from The Greeting Farm.  


This cute little nurse is from the Get Well Soon set.  I colored the image with copics then diecut the nurse and her bottle of pills using the coordinating dies.  I applied distress inks to a strip of watercolor paper and splashed some water to create the lighter spots - love this technique!  I used foam tape to pop the nurse up on a circle of vellum.  I applied some sequins just to give the card a bit of sparkle.  I think this little cutie will bring a smile to the face of someone that's feeling a bit under the weather, don't you?

Thank you so much for stopping by!  

Hugs, Anita
