Enjoy

Hi All!  I'm back again to share another preview of the new Lil Easter Pinkette release over at Tickled Pink Stamps :)  Today we're showing off Lil Easter Pinkette Bunny Pippa.  Pippa has always been one of my favorite Pinkette's and I love her with those adorable bunny ears!  I paired her with paper from a new 6x6 paper pack by MME called Fiddlesticks that I just got yesterday in the mail- I thought the pretty pastels were perfect for a spring card and I just couldn't wait to break out the new stuff :)  I hope you like it....make sure to stop by and check out the other gorgeous cards by the rest of the team over on the blog and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win this adorable image!

Adore

Hi All!  Guess what?  It's time for a new Pinkette release over at Tickled Pink Stamps!  I just love these little cuties- they are so easy to work with and an absolute blast to color :)  We've got an awesome Easter release and one of the things I love most about Lil Easter Pinkette Daisy August is that she would be perfect for so many types of cards year round, not just springtime.  I did something a little different this time around- just got to switch things up every now and then right?- and took what was supposed to be a cardboard frame to use on a scrapbooking page with a picture and instead distressed it with a white ink pad and some white embossing powder, sanded the edges and then backed it with some design paper from Lilybee Designs.  Then I mounted that on an A7 white card base and cut the excess card off.  Its a much smaller workspace than I'm used to working on but that actually made it really easy to embellish because I filled it up quickly with some of my favorite things like bling, flowers, a charm and a metal ribbon slider that I've seriously had in my stash for an embarrassingly long time.  I can already tell the this little August is quickly going to become a favorite of mine so you'll probably see her in the near future :)  Please, please, please go and check out the Tickled Pink Stamps blog for more stunning projects from my fellow teamies- I'm always picking my jaw up off the floor when I see all the awesomeness that these ladies create- and leave a comment for a chance to win the adorable Daisy August!

Under the Sea

Hi All!  I'm trying to be better about carving out time to do blog posts amid my still crazy schedule :)  I swear when I started blogging I had no idea how much time can actually go into doing a post, lol...but, as with all things, practice has made me a little faster- now if I could just stop being such a blabber mouth when I type I think that would reduce the time I spend by a considerable amount!  But I wouldn't hold your breath on that one :)  Today I've got a simple but cute little card for one of my very good friends' daughters birthday.  When she emailed me to ask me to put one together she was thinking something along the lines of sea creatures and I instantly thought of Kenny K images and this totally gorgeous girly fish that I've looked at before- it seemed perfect- and to make it even better when I went through the store I also found a little friend for her with this adorable killer whale.  I colored them up with my Copics and paired them with some bright and cheerful birthday paper and a little bling- because what's a girly birthday card without bling?  When I delivered the card my friend said it was perfect- I hope her daughter feels the same...all in all I'd say a happy customer is a job well done :)


When I went to grab my little notebook where I write down the Copics I use when I color an image I realized that I hadn't written anything down for these!  My bad!  Hope you'll forgive me :)

Outta This World

Hi all!  I'm just popping in with a quick post to let you know it's time for a new challenge over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge :)  This week we'd like to see your Shaped Cards.  I decided to do a circle card which isn't going too far out of the box but its one of my favorite shapes to work on so I was excited to bust one out.  I used one of the new images from the release over at Tickled Pink Stamps called Lil Futuristic Willow- and let me tell you, she was an absolute blast to color up!  I paired her up with some gears and a sentiment that I did on the computer to complete the futuristic type look.  I hope you enjoy and that you'll join us over at the Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge this week and show off your shaped cards- just remember to use a Tickled Pink Stamp on your creation!

Hope You Have a 'Wicked' Birthday

Hi All!  Boy, it's been a little while huh?  My life's been kind of interesting of late...things are still crazy at work with my schedule being so all over the place sometimes I'm not sure if I'm coming or going!  And I think my body decided it needed to take matters into its own hands so then I got one of the worst colds I've had in a long time which actually forced me to slow down a bit.  But now I'm on the mend and trying to find some time for me in the midst of all my commitments :)

Enough life talk, what do you say we get to a card?!?  I'm dying to share this one with you as it incorporates some of my very favorite things!  First I used a Saturated Canary image called Elphie because the card was for my mom's birthday and since we both LOVE the broadway show Wicked I knew I wanted to do something along those lines for her :)  I paired my adorable image, that I colored up with my trusty Copics, with some Graphic 45 Wizard of Oz paper and an awesome Tim Holtz die cut that I got in a piece of 'happy mail' from one of my favorite blogging buddies Eulanda- thanks girlfriend!  After some finishing touches of bling (of course) and some twine I was dying to give this to my mom- and I'm happy to share that she loved it as much as I hoped she would :)
