Dreaming of Love

Colored in this beautiful image from the Art of Ching-Chou Kuik in the Dreaming of Love set - she is so beautiful and I really enjoyed coloring her.  I am entering this card for the Color Crazy Challenge design team - go check them out!

Fifi's "pink" Cat

This is my pink card for the design team call at Creations in Pink, check them out there are so many pretty (in pink) designs.  I found a new to me artist who makes such adorable images - ppinkydollsart.  I fell in love with Fifi's Cat and decided to make my submission with this beautiful image.  The die is called Royal Flower Lace from Aliexpress.  The sentiment is from a set I received with my Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.  Hope you enjoy the card.

More 2018 Christmas Cards

When the Eastern Medallions die set from Stampin Up came out I knew I had to have it - they are beautiful and versatile.  One thing I saw in them was snowflakes and so decided to make them the focus of a batch of Christmas cards.  The background papers are from the free papers you receive with the Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine out of the UK. Hope you like.

Tiddly Inks Submission

Here are a couple of cards that I made as submissions to the Tiddly Inks Design Team.  Click the link below if you are interested:

My first card uses the adorable dog from the Tiddly Inks Flying High Anna Belle set colored in with Prismacolors.  The die set for the buildings and clouds is from Aliexpress highlighted with a little Hickory Smoke distress ink.

The second card uses Tiddly Inks' Annie's Art colored with Prismacolors.  I then took some watercolor paper and randomly scribbled color using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers then blended using a water brush and cut them out using a die from Aliexpress (actually one of the sample images inspired the card).

Christmas Cards 2018

 I got my Christmas cards finished really early this year and made this set using some great images from Tiddly Inks for myself.  I like to make sets of cards for family every year as well (will be in other posts).

The following Tiddly Inks digital images were used:

Thanksgiving Cards 2018

I tend to forget about Thanksgiving since I live in Germany but I was actually on time with getting my family their cards this year 😀  I colored both cards using my Prismacolors.

The tree is a stamp from Stamping Bella called Heritage Tree (retired).

The flowers are from a stamp set I received with my Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine called Fantastic Florals.  Love this magazine and look forward to my gift each month - highly recommend.

Halloween Cards 2018

Halloween is my all time favorite holiday - love everything about it not the least of which is making Halloween cards and projects (even working on some right now).  Below are the cards I made for family for Halloween 2019.

All of the images are from VectoriaDesigns' Halloween Bootiful Pack.
