Easter Murray

Hello!  I can't believe Easter is almost here!  Time goes by so fast!  Today I have a sweet little card to share with you using Murray from Saturated Canary.  You can find her HERE in the shop.  I just love her little tights and that little chick is to die for!  Adorbs! 
For this card, I wanted to use some bright Easter papers (you guys know how I love bright colors) so I decided to use my new paper pad by Doodlebug.  It's called Bunnyville and I just love it!  How fun are those little bunnies!  Every year, I find myself searching for cute Easter paper and coming up empty-handed, but now I finally found some! 
Here's a closer look at the card:
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy Easter!

Tropical Swim

Hello there! Just wanted to share my latest card using Beach Pretty from Saturated Canary.  You can find her HERE in the shop.  First of all, I LOVE this image.  That hair...amazing!  It was so much fun to color and I just love how it turned out!  Let me tell you, I'm so ready for summer so you will probably be seeing a lot of "beach" theme cards from me in the near future.  For this card, I decided to go with a tropical theme so I found some fun patterned paper and added some beautiful paper flowers.  And of course, I had to add some gold sequins.  (I'm kind of obsessed with gold right now).  But you already knew that! 

For the flower centers, I couldn't decide to what to use so I added a sequin and glued a peal in the center.  I really like to look of it and I'm thinking I may use it again. 
Thank you so much for stopping by!

St. Patrick's Day and Bellarific Friday Challenge

Hello there!  Today I have two cards to show you.  The first is for the Bellarific Friday Challenge over at Stamping Bella. The theme this week was paper piecing so I decided to play along and make an Easter card.  This is Bunny and you can find her HERE in the Stamping Bella store. 

For this card, I decided to paper piece her skirt and then added some pleats/folds with my C1 and C3 Copic markers.  I really like how it turned out!  Here's a side view:
Patterned Paper: Doodlebug Hello Spring
Sentiment Stamp: Studio G (Michaels)
Yellow Ribbon: Stampin Up Daffodil Delight
Ink: Stampin Up Lovely Lilac
Doily: My Stash
Button: My Stash
I also have another Stamping Bella card to show in honor of St. Patrick's Day.  This image has long been retired, but I still love my bellas and like to make cards with them when I can.  My ultimate goal is to collect all of the bellas that were released, but I'm still a few shy.  I've been hunting them down ever since they were retired. So, if you know anyone looking to get rid of their bellas, I'm your girl! 
For this card, I used some adorable paper from Doodlebug called Pot O'Gold and scattered some little shamrock rhinestones I got from Oriental Trading Co.  I actually found these by accident when I was ordering some supplies for my son's birthday, but they were so cute, I couldn't pass them up! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!  Stay safe!

Kraftin Kimmie Guest DT Contest Part 3

Ok, I was able to create one more card for the Kraftin Kimmie Guest DT Contest!  This is Leilani and you can find her HERE in the Kimmie shop!  Isn't she beautiful!  I just love her!  For this card, I decided to use some of the techniques in the January Create and Learn class from Kit and Clowder.  If you've never tried some of these classes, I highly recommend them.  They are amazing and very affordable!  This one in particular focused on a beachy background.  Clearly perfect for this image.  I did change things up a bit (clouds, tree trunk, and sand) but I keep a lot of it the same.  I really love how it turned out.  Because the image was so detailed, I decided to keep the actual card pretty simple.  Just some patterned paper and tropical flowers.  Hope you like it! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Rainbow Fairy

Hello!  Hope you are having a great week!  Today, I'm sharing a fun little St. Patrick's Day card.  This adorable image is called Little Fairy and you can find her HERE in the Saturated Canary Shop.  I have loved this little fairy since the day she was released.  Something about her sweet little face.  She's just adorable!! I knew I wanted to use her on a little St. Patrick's Day card so I decided to color her wings like rainbows and added some Stickles for give them a little magic.  Then I added some fun paper and a few die cuts and there you have it!  Hope you like it!
