Lady Bug Beauty

It’s another fun, sweet, beautiful new release from A Day For Daisies! The July Club Kit is here and it’s full of lovely ladybugs!
It’s also a challenge week so join us and use torn paper.  Easy peasy!
Today I am sharing Ladybug and Me and I just love it!
I printed out this adorable image on white card stock and colored it with Copic markers.  I went over the fairy’s wings with Glitter Paint from DecoArt to make them shimmer.  I also added a bit to the flowers in her hair and the big yellow flower. 
The paper is from Simple Stories and the paper rose from Michaels.  I tore strips and distressed the edges of all the panels.  It was fun and easy!
Check out these lovely creations from the design team!
Now join us over at the ADFD Blog and show us your torn paper creations! 
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

Peaceful Thoughts

Happy Friday!  I have another card to share from the July release from Power Poppy
I love coloring the beautiful Countryside Bouquet image. 
After printing the digital image I colored it with Copic markers.  I used Spellbinders dies, Classic Circle and Scalloped Circles to cut the image and mat.  I used a scrap of Bo Bunny striped paper for the background and added a paper flowers from Recollections to the sentiment from the Good Thinking: Renewal stamp set.
Check out all of the beautiful creations from all of the lovely Bloom Brigade ladies!

There’s No Place Like Gnome

This week is an adorable new release from A Day For Daisies.
Here is Mushroom Gnome from In My Garden.
What a fun cutie to color!  I used Copic markers on the entire image.  I used a white gel pen for the dots on the mushroom and on his hat.  I used a grass punch from Martha Stewart to make the grass layers and a fern punch under the sentiment.    I flocked his beard, mustache, and eyebrows…nice and fuzzy!   The paper is from the Basic Grey Boxer pad.
Check out the ladies cute samples this week!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fun weekend!

Okay, now it’s Round!

Whew, made it to another Friday!  This week there is a challenge over at A Day For Daisies, and it’s make your card round!
Here is my Flower Piglet!  We’ll just consider last week your sneak peek, lol!
I am loving these sweet animals in the July Club Kit!    I colored my piggies up with Copic Markers first, then shaded with Prismacolor pencils.  I used Spellbinders to cut the image, mat, and base cards.  The paper is from the MME In Bloom
The team has more beautiful animals to share today!
Hope everyone enjoyed their week! Have a great weekend!

Flower Monkeys

Good morning and happy 4th of July to all my American friends!  Today is the start of the new Club Kit from A Day For Daisies.  This one is all about Love’ in Animals!  
My card today features Flower Monkey.  But before I show you…let me just say that I had issues this week, oh boy!  This wasn’t supposed to be round, and it wasn’t supposed to be monkeys.  I am just overwhelmed with stuff right now and even when I have the instructions straight, they are not translating from my brain to my hands properly…or something like that.   I hope it all finds it’s way back once the boys go to sleep away camp!    Ok, back to monkeys.
So, I started by printing the monkeys on white cardstock and coloring them with Copic markers.  I used Spellbinders dies to cut out the image and card base.  The paper is from the Simple Stories Vintage paper pad.  I added a simple paper flower from Recollections and let it be done!
The other ladies have stunning creations for you today! Stop by each one to see!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!

Red, White. and Blue

Happy Independence Day America!  Today over at the Power Poppy Blog
is a challenge…to use your countries colors.  It’s the red, white, and blue for the USA.   So today, I pulled out the beautiful Geraniums for the challenge.
I printed the digital image twice.  One image I colored and cut out to pop up over the base image.  The base and mat were both cut out using Spellbinders dies, blossoms.  I used Copic markers to color the image and some Wheat ink from a Memento Dew Drop to sponge with the die still in place.
The paper is from the Authentique paper pad Pride.
Come join us for a fun patriotic challenge!  See what the Bloom Brigade has for your inspiration too!

It’s a Poppy Hop!

Hi everyone! Please join Power Poppy today for our monthly release hop!  I have one more sample from the new release to share.


I used the Countryside Bouquet digi image to create the background paper.  I chose a shade of blue that coordinated with some cardstock I had in my stash.  I used the same color to print the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment and the mat using Spellbinders dies.   I added some twine, that was surprisingly really close in color and a blue butterfly from Recollections.  Guess I was just feeling blue that day, lol!

What a hop it will be today…so get going!
