You Warm My Heart

Happy New Year's Eve!  Today, I have a Greeting Farm card to share.  This is from the Together Anywhere set which you can find HERE in the store.  It's finally gotten cold here in Texas so I thought I would start using some of my winter images.  I'm a sucker for anything that involves scarves, mittens, hats, hot cocoa, etc.  Something about these things, just makes me smile. 

Here's a closer look at the card:
Tag and Circle Punches: Stampin Up
Swirl Die: My Favorite Things
Sentiment: My Favorite Things
Patterned Paper: Echo Park: Yours Truly
Heart Button: My Stash

Hello there!  Only one more day left of 2015!  For me, it was a pretty great year.  We build a new house, watched our little one have his first birthday, and I got to be a GDT member for Saturated Canary!  Today, I have a little card showcasing one of my all time favorite images from SC.  This is called Nesting and you can find her in the shop HERE.  I think she's so pretty and I LOVE her hat! 

Here's a closer look:
Paper- My Mind's Eye
Swirl Die: My Favorite Things
Branch Punch: Martha Stewart Crafts
Paper Flower: Prima
Brad: Hobby Lobby Spare Parts
Stitched Circle Die: Gina Marie Designs
Coloring: Copics

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas!  I meant to post this earlier today, but with all the holiday hustle, this was the earliest I could get it uploaded.  This is called The Ballet and you can find it here in the Saturated Canary shop, but only for a limited time so don't wait!  The minute I saw this image, I knew I had to make a card with it.  I've always loved The Nutcracker and one day I hope to start a family tradition with my son (when he's old enough to enjoy it).  I even love watching it on TV. 
For this card, I colored the image with Copics, added some paper from American Crafts, punched a white snowflake using a die from Gina Marie Designs, added the sentiment from Stampin Up, a couple of flags from my Stampin up punch and a button from my stash.  I really wanted to keep this card pretty simple so all the focus would be on the image. 
Here's a closer look.  Thanks so much for stopping by and Merry Christmas!

Pretty Christmas

Hello there!  I can't believe it's almost Christmas!  Where does the time go??  Just wanted to share this beautiful image with you today.  This is Avery Pretty Christmas from Saturated Canary.  You can find her here in the shop.  She's part of the Holiday Set of Three Digi's. 

For this card, I used some adorable paper from American Crafts called "Be Merry."  I colored the image with Copics, and added a little glitter to the yellow ornaments with my Copic Spica pen.  Then I added a couple of rhinestones and some ribbon from my stash.  Border dies are from My Favorite Things. 
Here's a close up of the colored image. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Merry Christmas!

Magical Mermaid

Hello!  With Christmas just around the corner, I should be making Christmas cards, but instead, I have something a little different to show you today.  This is Evie's Sister and is one of the newest digi stamps from Saturated Canary.  Isn't she gorgeous!!  I just love this image and I had so much fun coloring her up! 
Ok, so I have to tell you that this card almost ended up in the trash a couple times.  After I started coloring her, I realized I knew nothing about coloring mermaids.  So I watched a couple of Youtube videos, made a lot of mistakes, did some covering up, and this is the end result.  I couldn't be happier with it!  Just goes to show you that sometimes mistakes are the best things :)
So, let me give you the details.  For this card, I colored the image with Copics and then added some stickles glitter to her tail and face.  Then I used the Leafy Flourish die from My Favorite Things to make the sea weed.  Next, I added some coral with a  Martha Stewart branch punch.  Then, I added several 3D stickers from various companies that I had in my stash.  I popped on some "bubbles" dots with Liquid Pearls and added the sentiment from Stamping Bella.  Oh, and the background paper is by Doodlebug.  I really hope you like the end result.  I think I may try more mermaids in the future :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Santa in His PJ's

Ho Ho Ho!  Christmas is just around the corner!  I can't believe it's already December.  Where does the time go? Have you made a dent in your Christmas shopping?   Unfortunately, I have barely begun.  Guess I better get busy!  Today, I have an adorable little card to share with you using one of the new Whimsie Doodles stamps called Santa's Break.  Isn't he just the cutest!  I just love his little PJ's and cookie!  Oh so cute!  You can find him HERE in the store. He would be the perfect addition to your holiday cards! 
For this card, I colored him up with my Copics and used some adorable paper from American Crafts.  Then I stamped the little Christmas sentiment from one of my Stampin Up stamp sets and then added some sparkly holly.  (hint: holly is from Walmart and is actually considered table confetti, but it's made out of cardboard and is already all glittered up so I decided to use it on my card). 
Thank you so much for stopping by!  Happy crafting!
