Maddie the Red Nosed Reindeer

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




This  sweet little girl dressed up as a reindeer is called Maddie the Red Nosed Reindeer.  Isn't she adorable?  There's also a little boy version of this called Max the Red Nosed Reindeer.  I printed the image on Neenah and colored her with copics.  I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the Christmas dp and added some ribbon and a bow.   I also added a few sequins for a little sparkle ... you gotta have sparkle on a Christmas card, right?  You can find more adorable digis over at Sassy Cheryl's Stamps so be sure to check out her shop!

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!

You're Owlsome!

Good morning everyone!  I've got another fun card using some stamps and dies from Sunny Studio Stamps.     


I used the Happy Owl-o-ween and Halloween Cuties stamps and dies for this card.  The Happy Owl-o-ween set features an adorable owl and the cutest little Halloween costumes for the owl to wear!  You need to stop by the shop to check out all the images that are included in this set.  The pumpkin and bats are from the Halloween Cuties set that was released last year.  These two stamp sets work so well together.  I colored all the stamped images with copics and diecut them with the coordinating dies.  I diecut a stitched rectangle panel and used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers (two of my favorite colors).  I adhered the owl and pumpkin with foam tape for some dimension and added a few sequins for some sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita

Count Dracula

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  Today I'm sharing another sweet image from Sassy Cheryl's.


This not-so-scary Halloween stamp is Count Dracula.  I think he's so cute!  I printed him on Neenah, colored him with copics, and then fussy cut him.  I used distress inks to create the grass, night sky and moon.  I added a diecut tree, fence, and bats to complete my scene.  You can find more adorable digis over at Sassy Cheryl's Stamps.

Guest DT - Sunny Studio Stamps August Release

Good morning everyone!  I've got some fun cards featuring the Sunny Studio Autumn Release.  I was so excited when Mendi, the owner of Sunny Studio Stamps, asked me to be a guest designer using these adorable new stamp sets!

 
I used the Happy Owl-o-ween stamps and dies for this card.  This stamp set features an adorable owl and the cutest little Halloween costumes for the owl to wear!  Be sure to stop by the shop and check out all the images that are included in this set.  I know I'm going to have so much fun with this set - the possibilities are endless!  I colored all the stamped images with copics and diecut them with the coordinating dies.  The broom and bats are from the Halloween Cuties set that was released last year (another must-have Halloween set!).  I used distress inks on watercolor paper for the night sky and the moon, spattered some water, and then dried the drops with a towel.  I stamped the sentiment on the moon and then adhered the stamps with foam tape for some dimension.


I also used the Happy Owl-o-ween stamps and dies to make this card.  I have to say I think that little bumble bee costume may be my favorite!  And by simply changing the hats, the witch costume becomes a fairy costume!  I colored all the stamped images with copics and diecut them with the coordinating dies.  The spiderweb, spider, and bats are from the Halloween Cuties set.  I used distress inks to sponge the grassy area, and then used distress inks and a cloud stencil to create the sky.  I stamped the spider web directly onto my card and adhered all the other images with foam tape.  I applied Glamour Dust to the bee's wings and antennae, and the fairie's wand for a little bit of sparkle. 


For my last card I used the Missing Ewe stamp set.  Aren't these little sheep the cutest ever?  I colored them with copics and diecut them with the coordinating dies.  Once again I used distress inks and a cloud stencil to create the background.  I stamped the sentiment directly onto my card and also stamped a little heart in the area where the missing ewe would be standing.  These little sheep are very quick and easy to color so if you're short on time they're the perfect images for a fast card!

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita

Sending You Sunshine & Smiles

Good morning everyone!  Today I'm sharing a sweet image from Sassy Cheryl's.



This cute digi is called First Love.  I love this little guy and the sweet look on his face is just adorable!  I printed him on Neenah and diecut the panel with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  I colored him with copics and then masked him.  I used distress inks to create the grass and the clouds.  The sun was diecut and then I stamped a little smiley face on it.  I thought this sentiment would be perfect for this card.  You can find lots of awesome digis over at Sassy Cheryl's Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a day full of sunshine and smiles!

Hugs, Anita
