Have a Bloomi-ful day

Good morning to all you crafters out there.  Today my post is for Tuesday Throwdown Challenge "Homemade flowers"  I colored these pretty flowers with my copics and the cut into each of the pedals about half way so I could shape then as I wanted then.   I colored the 3 sets of light colored leaves with copics and put them on the card then the two dark sets of leaves I cut with a stampin-up die cut.  The butterflies are also a stampin-up die cut that cuts and embosses at the same time.  I sprayed the butterflies with a glitter spray that was a gift from a friend.  The card was cut with from the spellbinders large labels die.  The sentiment is part of another set of digi's by doodle pantry.  I decided I didn't want to add an image to this just a lot of flowers.  I hope you will all come down to Tuesday Throwdown and play along with us here:  Just make some pretty homemade flowers and make a card.  Easy peasy right ?  It sure is fun and satisfying to see something you make come to life.  I love to make flowers of all kinds.  I hope you will come join the fun.  Happy Crafting all.

My Fuschia Flower

Good morning to you all.  Can't you just smell the fragrance of this flower?  It is a fuschia and very fragrant.  I love this image along with the humming birds.  Flowers are my favorite and humming birds were my sisters favorite.  So this image is special to me.  I colored it with Copics.  I added a second bird to the card and two butterflies from a die cut that is from Stampin- up.  It cuts and embosses them at the same time.  I love this die cut.  I used some gems to make a tail off the butterflies that I got at the expo this yr.  The sentiment comes with the set of images from Imagine that by Kris. You can go to her site and get this image and many many  more wonderful sets. Her site is here:, and I hope you will hop over and check out her site.  She is extremely talented and has wonderful images for sale.  Happy Crafting to you all.

Hot Apple Pie for my picnic!

Good Morning to you all.  Today is posting day for Tuesday Throwdown challenge "Lets have a picnic"  I chose the hot apple pie from Meljen's  You can get that stamp here:  They have lots and lots of wonderful digi stamps here.  I colored this stamp with my copics and love it.  I added some glossy accents to the bow to make it look a bit more satin looking.  I cut it out with a spellbinders die cut that I had.  The paper is from recollections pack that I got a long time ago.  The ants are from another digi set that I printed and colored for embellishments.  What kind of picnic can you have without ants?  LOL  The sentiment is also from the set of Ant stamps.  They just seem to go together.  I hope you like my little card I think it came out great.  Come on down and join the fun at Tuesday Throwdown challenge here:  Just make up a picnic card and join us for some fun.  I hope to see you all there.  Great prizes as well and who doesn't like prizes.  Happy Crafting all.

The Lighthouse

Hi All,  today I am posting my lighthouse card.  I love lighthouses and have photographed many of them around the eastern seaboard.  I love this image by Imagine that by Kris here:  She has so many great sets of stamps.  You get more then one digi and some greetings to go with it with each set.  She has a progressive challenge as well.  Hop over to her blog to find out more about it.  I colored my image with copics and mounted it on a pices of blue designer paper that was just a scrap I had left so have NO clue who it is by.  I liked the way it looked under the image so I chose that one.  I used black and white twine to go under the image to give it a more masculine feel.  The base card is dark blue and the sentiment is one that comes with the image.  I  hope you like my card and will leave me some love.  Lighthouses are my favorite to photograph they have such life to them.  Have a wonderful crafting day!!

Lady in Pink

Hi all today I am posting my Lady in Pink. She is an image that I got from Eastwind on Facebook.  I colored her with my copic's.  The framing around her is cut with my cameo and I love the fact that you can resize the images to fit your needs.  The back ground paper is from a recollections pack that I got over a year ago an still haven't used it all.  The ribbon was added for the challenge at Eastwind and I made the bow with a bow maker that my husband made for me.  I really love the way this one turned out.
I want to enter her into the challenge at Through the craft room door. here:
I hope you will come down to the challenge and join in it is as always anything goes.  They have some great prizes this week from ArtbyMiran and they are beautiful images as well. 
Happy Crafting all.

Flower Pot Pretty

Hi Everyone.  I wanted to post this beautiful image from Lacy Sunshine Stamps today.  I got her as a freebie on Lacy Sunshine Facebook page.  I love Heather's images they are all so adorable.  I colored her with my copics and cut out the image with a spellbinders die cut.  The swirl at the bottom was cut from my silhouette and the Thank you was cut on my Cricut.  Yes I have both and yes I use both a lot. The butterfly is a stampin-up punch.  I just added a couple of gems to add some bling.  I love bling but thought just a couple was enough.  I didn't want to take away from the image.  Check out Heathers store for some wonderful images here: I promise you won't be sorry you did.  Happy Crafting all.

Christmas in July

Hello to all you wonderful crafters.  Today I am posting for the first time for Imagine that by Kris. I am so excited to tell you that I was chosen to be a summer guest designer for her.  She has these wonderful images with lots of images in one set that you can buy here:  I strongly suggest you check her site out it is fantastic.  Now on to my card.  It was a fun card to do as it is really hot here right now.  Thinking of Christmas in this heat was sorta hard but I did it.  I had to go drag out my Christmas papers and embellishments as well.  I guess I will leave them out and start making my Christmas cards now, not to early so they say.  I always send out homemade cards so need a few and would be good to get started on them now that my stuff is out.  (Have you started on yours yet and if not here is a perfect set to get you started!!)  I colored my image with copics and used some sakura gel pens for bling.  My embellisments are from Martha Stewart collection.  I used a small tree and the snowflakes I took apart and used just the small portion of them.  I cut the image out with a spellbinders die.  I really like how this turned out.  I hope you will come over to ImaginThatbyKris and play along with our challenge this week.  Happy Crafting to you all.  I hope you will leave some love as I do read each and everyone of them.  Have a craft-tastic day!!!

Tiny Eveningpuff HobGobbi

Hi all,  today or I guess I should say good evening, it is after 11:00 here.  This is my HobGobbie by Heater Valentine at Lacy Sunshine Stamps.  She is just the cutest little creature I have seen in a long time.  There are 8 of them all together I think.  I colored her with my copics.  I used all scarps of paper that I found in my scrap box.  My butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the small flowers are punched from a small EK Success punch with a jewel in the center.  I hope you like my little HobGobbie and will go checkout Lacy Sunshine site to buy your own personal HobGobbie.  I hope you have a wonderful day or evening...  Happy Crafting.

My Dinosaur

Well good morning to you all.  It is bright and shiny here today.  Although it is suppose to rain later.  I just wanted to post my DT card for Tuesday Throwdown challenge for this week.  He is a darling Dinosaur that is worried about getting old.  LOL  The image came from My Graphico  Here:  
They have great digi's to play with so go on over and check them out.  I colored all of it with copics and just pop dotted the volcano to the card. Which is from DCWV all about boys pack.  I then pop dotted the dinosaur on as well.  I am using this for my grandson's birthday so didn't want to make it to frilly.  He actually loved it and he is into dinosaurs right now so this was perfect.  The feet came with the set so I make them look like embellishments and added them to the top.  I hope you like my card and will come play along with us this week at Tuesday Throwdown challenge.  Here is the link so you can fly on over and play.  Happy crafting to you all.  Have a wonderful day.

Lady in Blue

Good evening to you all.  Tonite I am posting a card that I did yesterday and fell in love with it.  I colored it with copics for my class in Kit and Clowder and thought it turned out really sweet.  I made a hinged card as well which is a first for me.  It was relatively easy as well.  It is a new die cut that i got at the expo this year in Orlando.  I really like it and the blue is a beautiful die as well from the  same set.  I will certainly be using them a lot more often.  I have decided that I am going to make a set of these as a gift.  The image is one from Jade Dragonne from Deviant Art she is an amazing artist and her faces are perfect for practicing my skin tones on.  I sure hope you like her, I know I do.  I am going to enter her into some of the contest or challenges that I can find.  Happy Crafting all. 

Snow Princess

Good morning to you all.  Today I am proudly posting my "Snow Princess"  But she doesn't look like anything that has been in the snow.  Our Challenge over at Creative Colors Challenge this week is Vanilla, mint green and white, with a twist to add butterflies.  So I thought hum now how am I going to do this.  Well I colored her with Copics  and cut her out.  Then I took the vanilla colored paper that I found and used a spellbinders die to cut that out and ran it through the cuddlebug dotted swiss embossing folder.  It kinda sorta looks like snow? I used a spellbinders die to cut the flowers out as well.  I made the flowers out of the mint green paper and the vanilla papers.    I inked the edges of the vanilla with a mint green chalk die.  Then I use glitter glue to make them sparkle.  The leaf cuts are stampin-up and also the small ones came with the flower die.  I got the rose buds from Crafty city and the small roses from a garage sale.  The back ground paper is from a small pack of paper that I won in a blog hop and there was no name on it.  I am down to the last 3 pieces and I use it sparingly.  I then added my "butterflies" to the card.  Just two small ones and they are not intrusive to the design but they are there.  The image is from Lacy Sunshine and so beautiful and so much fun to color.  You can checkout her site here. 
The owner Heather Valentine is so very talented and I love her images.  So go check her out and come back and play along with us this week at Creative Colors challenge.  Hope to see all my crafting friends there.  Happy Crafting all.

My Special Man

Hi all today I am posting for Tuesday Throwdown Challenge here:  Our theme is Special men.  Our sponsor is Fred She Said and you can find them here:  They have some great digi's to work with.  Mine is all about birthdays.  This will be for my hubby who is having a birthday in June.  We are getting older and I thought he might get a kick out of this.  This year I am giving him a different card each day of the week that his birthday fall in.  I have two made so far so have 4 more to go.  What fun.  I do something crazy each year.  I colored my little guy with copics.  I used a dark blue base card even tho it looks black.  I then printed some digi paper off the net and make a flag out of two different papers.  I mounted the sentiment on the same yellow paper as the background and the flag.  I added the button just for fun.  I hope you like my card and will leave me some love.  Happy Crafting all.

#1 DAD (GDT for Imagin That)

Oh my here I am again,  so sorry but being off line for days I have more of these to post.  I do believe this is the last one for now however.  Maybe tomorrow it will change as I go through my cards trying to get caught up.  This little cutie is from Kris at Imagin That digis by Kris here:  It is a progressive challenge where each month if you enter you get the following month free.  I decided to do this one for fathers day and let my grand daughter give it to her daddy.  I didn't want to make it to complicated as I wanted it to look somewhat like she did it herself.  LOL  I needed to do it quickly as I only get to see her once before Fathers day and wanted to make sure she got it.   I hope you will consider coming down and playing along with us at Imagin that by Kris.  Hope to see you there.
