Easter Egg

Today I am sharing another super sweet image from the April Club Kit from A Day For Daisies called Easter Egg.

DPK_ADFD_EasterEgg

After printing the digital image I colored it up with Copic markers.  After coloring the egg I added polka dots with the Blender pen. I trimmed the image panel and then sponged it with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  All of the patterned paper is from the Die Cuts with A View the Spring Stack.    I added some colored twine with a bow and a pretty Prima flower.

There are so many super sweet samples to see from these wonderful ladies below!


Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

Peaceful Thoughts

Good morning!  I wanted to share another card I made with the new Springtime Love from Power Poppy.
DPK_PP_SpringtimeLoveThoughts_wm
I stamped the image on white card stock and colored it with Copic markers then die cut the image with Spellbinders Floral Ovals.   I sponged it with Antique Linen Distress Ink with the die still in place.  I stamped the sentiment from Good Thinking: Renewal on a die cut banner and also sponged the edges of that.  I added a tiny resin rose that I colored with a Copic Refill R85 to the banner. I layered it with an additional hand cut banner on patterned paper from the MME Vanity Fair Six by Six pad.  
This is such a sweet romantic set of flowers, combined with the Good Thinking: Renewal sentiment set and you have endless combinations for card creations!
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you back here tomorrow!

Hippity Hoppity

Easter mean spring and spring means Easter and I love sweet springy Eastery images!  This week kicks off the new April Club Kit from A Day For Daisies and I have a super cutie to share from it!
This is Easter Bunny Delivery.   I just love his sweet face and cute little romper!
DPK_ADFD_EasterBunnyDelivery
I printed this image three times, once on white cardstock for the main image, then again on patterned paper for the baskets and his outfit, which I paper pieced onto the white image which I also cut out.   I based the bunny with Copic markers but shaded him with Prismacolor pencils and oms.   I popped him up with dimensional adhesive over an egg that was die cut with Spellbinders.  The patterned papers are from the DCWV Spring paper pack.
There are so many adorable images in the April Club Kit that it was hard to choose which one to begin with!  Wait until you see the cuties the design team colored up to share with you today!
Hop on over to the ADFD Blog and get yours today!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

The card I am showing you today was created using the Good Thinking: Renewal.  I thought it was completely appropriate to have bunnies hopping all over it…it’s a hop for a Hop!

DPK_PP_GTRenewalSpring_wm


I used a Spellbinders die to cut  mat under the sentiment…cutting it twice, once in pink and once in green and layered them together.  The grass was created with a punch.  And finally, the adorable bunnies were die cut with Impression Obsession dies.  I finished them by adding a tiny white pompom to each tail.
   
Make sure you hop around to each of the Bloom Brigade ladies to see all of the wonderful creations they have to share today!  I’m so glad you hopped by!

DPK_PP_GTRenewalLeaf_wm
I love this sentiment and I loved this paper to pair it with from the Green Stack by DCWV.   I used dies cuts from Spellbinders for the sentiment and mat and also the leaf, which I sponged with the die in place to create the veins.   I also added this really pretty leaf shaped button from in my stash and tied that with some rustic twine.

Meet Azalea



This beautiful new set called Azalea is a collection of blooms just waiting for you to add the perfect color!  With so many shades this flower comes in the sky’s the limit!  This 4" by 6" set was illustrated by hand with a whole lotta love by Marcella Hawley.

DPK_PP_Azalea_wm


I stamped this image on cold press water color paper with VersaFine black ink and watercolored it with various brands of dye reinkers and a paint brush.  I have a beautiful variety of azalea that has the most gorgeous shade of peachy orange blooms, so I wanted to recreate that on my card.  This is such a beautiful image and so much fun to color!

I used a Spellbinders die Fleur de Lis Squares to mat my image that I trimmed into a square and nipped off the corners.  The patterned papers are from the MME Mabel pad.  I used some satin ribbon and rustic twine to add a bow.  I added the sentiment cut with a circle punch and layered onto a hand cut banner.  
You are going to love what the Bloom Brigade has in store for you today! Check them out!

Mixtape Madness


Introducing Marcella's Mixtape Vol. 1
This super fun set with have to humming these oldies but goodies all day long!  Great song related sentiments and images to pair up for a card that will bring back great memories and be sure to please!
DPK_PP_MixTapeSuperfly_wm
I started by stamping the lovely feathers on white card stock with pastel chalk inks from Memento Dew Drops.  I closely trimmed them and added lots of fun glitter.  I clustered them with a purple twine tied button.  I stamped the sentiment on a green strip and added some fun lime green trim.  I stamped a small feather to create a border and added that panel to the bottom.  The base panel is partially embossed with an embossing folder appropriate adorned with birds. 
You are going to have great fun seeing all of the creations from these Bloom Brigade ladies today!  Make sure you visit each one below!
