Shy in the Sky

Hi friends, I'm posting today with a card using Shy in the Sky from Sasayaki Glitter Designs, I chose this image because our grandson will be turning 1 in a couple weeks and his daddy is a pilot, thought this would be perfect!  Not that he will know, but I do and at this point.....that's good enough!

I paper pieced the airplane, used distress ink and a hand made cloud stencil for the sky, the cityscape is a stamp from Paperie Ink and I used a silver ink pen for the stripe on the plane.  I tend to wait until I know for sure what occasion I want to use a card for before adding a sentiment, but I think Celebrate or Happy Birthday is going to go on the top somewhere.

I hope you all have a great day, hop over to join a challenge or two at Sasayaki Challenge Blog or FB group!

I like your face

When I saw this darling little panda from Gerda Steiner Designs, I had to get it and play!

I love pandas and Gerda's designs, I love the cute and whimsy, love using fun colors, papers and patterns.  I colored this with distress inks and prisma pencils and then used my copic in BG10 and BG11 for some color and interest around the panda and to make him pop a little.  I think he's adorable and had fun coloring him up!

New Beginnings...

Happy New Year to everyone!!  I hope this year brings happiness, joy, adventure and comfort to us least that is what I am hoping for! :)    We have a couple grandbabies coming this year, so that's definitely going to bring some joy and adventure!

This is my first post of 2018 and I've got a card to share for a very special occasion.  I used the image Stella for my card today from Sasayaki Glitter Designs and wanted to make a pregnant/congrats card for my daughter who is due with her first baby April 18!

I colored with copics and used paper from the Garden Party paper pad from Pebbles, added some flowers and sequins.  I LOVE the colors and patterns in this paper pad, so feminine and pretty!

I hope you like my card and will also join us at Sasayaki Glitter Designs for challenges on the blog and FB group!!

A fairy Happy Birthday

I don't know what's more fun.....a cute fairy on a mushroom, a pink sky, blue mushrooms and fairies with purple hair!?!  That's what I love is just coloring up with whatever makes me happy and with this one....a pink sky/clouds made me happy! 

I used this darling image from Sasayaki Glitter Designs called Peggy on a Mushroom .  I used a basic A2 card base and the panel and banner are dies from My Favorite Things, the enamel dots are from Your Next Stamp and I colored with copics.

I hope you will stop by over at Sasayaki Glitter Designs as there are a couple challenges each month and a progressive challenge on their FB page and there are a lot of darling images to choose from as well!

Christmas Friends, Holiday Wishes

                     Hi Friends, I'm sharing a card today that I made with the image Christmas Friends from the Dec release over at Sasayaki Glitter Designs.  I love this image and thought it was too cute not to play with.  I colored with copics, papers are from my stash and different paper pads, Snowflakes, icicle border, rectangles and scallop border are all dies and the enamel dots are from Your Next Stamp.

I hope you like it and will check out the other amazing images HERE!

I'm sending this card to a little boy I heard about on KLOVE radio that was shot 5 times in the shooting in Texas while he was at church.  That situation just makes my heart hurt for him and those whose lives were lost and who lost loved ones.  This little boy just wants Christmas cards and that is one thing that I can do.  If anyone has extra Christmas cards and you have a minute to sit down and write a note, I'm sure this little boy or anyone else would appreciate your kindness.  You can find information on him HERE

It's Simple, I Love You!

Hi friends, I hope this day finds everyone doing well!

 I'm sharing a card today using Turtles in Love from Sasayaki Glitter Designs.  You can find the image HERE and the Challenge Blog for Sasayaki Glitter HERE.

The card measures just less than 6"x 6".  I used a paper pad from Crate Paper called Heart Day.  Super cute papers, lots of hearts, X's and O's and fun patterns.

I colored with copic markers and layered up all the pieces, added a little ink around the edges and a few Nuvo drops.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  I also added some decorating to the inside of the card with a white square panel, a couple strips of paper from the collection, a heart and then I cut some of the flowers out from the flower paper.  I hope you like my card and will join us at Sasayaki!

You Give me the Feels

I love mermaids and any chance I get to play with I do!  This cutie is The Mermaid #124  from Sasayaki Glitter Designs. I love how she is just squishing the stuffin out of the little octo! 

I created the background using the Waves Stencil from Simon Says Stamp and used four different distress inks to create an ombre ocean.  I used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Dusty Concord.  The enamel dots are Nuvo crystal drops in Violet Galaxy and Rhubarb Crumble.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things-Essential Sentiments. 

I colored the image with copics and added Wink of Stella to her tail and shell earring and added white get dots to the octo.  

I hope you enjoy my card and will come join us over at Sasayaki Glitter Stamps on our FB page or Challenge Blog

Goodnight Dino

Hi friends, I'm sharing my card today using this adorable image from Sasayaki Glitter Designs called Goodnight Dino, I think he is just the cutest!!  I created the background with distress inks and hand drew the cave, he looks all relaxed and comfy!

  I tend most of the time to leave my cards blank until I know what occassion and for whom they are for.  I thought for the inside of this it would be cute/funny to say something like "YOU'RE HOW OLD?"  ya know, cuz it's a dino, and they are ancient! ;)   Maybe I'll save it for my dad's birthday next year....heehee :D   

I colored the dino with copics and added some prismacolor pencils for deeper shading, I also added white dots with my white gel pen and green dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Green Apple from Tonic Studios.
