 Hello Friends! It's time for Thursday project with Inspired Stamps.  I broke out a new set Owls - this is such an Awesome set, with such cute owls and lovely sentiments which you can mix and match.  On my card I used one of the owls and coloured it with Copic Markers (E11, E13, E15, E02, E00, E70, E74)

The sentiment I used was from the Stamp set Thank You, stamped directly onto the pattern paper.  To add some interest to the card, I added some stitching around the patterned paper.

Be Happy

So glad it's the weekend!  How are you?  What are your plans this weekend... I hope it will be lovely.  I'm showcasing another Phyllis Harris stamp set "Beauty Around You" today.  It's not my best colouring effort but the card made me happy.

I didn't add the sentiment on the front of the card, because I think the image says it all.  The joy on the kids' faces and the cherry blossoms give the feel of a beautiful spring day.

The Copic Markers I used are - Girl's dress (R22, R24, R29, Colourless blender), Skin (E000, E01, E11, R21), Hair (E21, E25, E99), Flowers (RV11, Colourless blender), Boy's outfit (Y23, YR0000, B02, B05), BG0000 and C00 in the background.

I'm linking this to the Unity Friends with Flair blog hop and I hope you'll come along to see the beautiful creations from the Unity fans.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Inspired Stamps - Winter card

Hello, this week's Inspired Stamps project is a Winter themed card.  I have to admit it's a little hard to be thinking of Winter when the weather has been so hot and humid in Australia ;)

I used the new Snowmen set, which is such a cute set for my card.  I stamped the same snowman on my card three times with a bit of masking technique.  The Snowmen were coloured with Copic makers (R32, R35, B91, B93, YG03, YG17, BG0000).  I love the sentiment which is in an open font and I added some colour with Copic marker B91.

The bottom section of the card was embossed using a snowflake border die.  I added some colour to the embossed snowflake using BG000 and G00.  To finish up the card, I added some blings and twines and button at the top of the card.

Have a great day!

Love You Tons

Hi, I'm back joining the Unity fans today for Unity Friends with Flair.  Got home from work today and found a little Unity package waiting for me.  What a lovely surprise after a long week of work.

It was quick stamping and colouring for this card : I stamped the background stamp {crunch time} on white cardstock and coloured the leaves with Copic Markers (YG61, YG63, YG67, YG91, YG93, YG03).  The cute elephant is from the Itty Bitty set Love You Tons, and coloured with C00, C1, C3, and R37, R35, R32 for the hearts.

Please check the Unity Blog for all the fabulous inspiration from Unity friends, hop along with us and you could win some Unity stamps.

Have a great weekend!

For A Boy

I made it! my favourite Blog Party.  It's late at night and the lighting isn't the best, but here's my card.

It's the little boy stamp set Half Pint Heroes Additions, which I absolutely adore.  The boy image was coloured with Copic Markers (B91, B93, B95, B97, R32, R35, R37, E30, E31, E33, E35, E50, E01, E13, R21, BG0000).

I can't wait to see what everyone has created.  Come along for the "Love themed" hop which starts at the Waltzing Mouse Makes Blog.

Have fun!

Inspired Stamps - Love

Hello Friends! It's another Thursday project with Inspired Stamps.  This week, we are all making a set of cards with the theme "Love".  I made a set of 4 cards, using the 1" circle stamp from the Stamp Set Lovely Lace.

For the first focal image, I stamped directly onto white cardstock using a pink grapefruit ink, and for the second image, I stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. Then the image was punched out with a scalloped circle punch and sponged over with blue ink.

Here are the cards:

Sunflower Girl

Hello!  It feels so good to be back to stamping and colouring :) and to join my friends at Unity Friends with Flair.  Here's a little card to cheer your day:

I used the set Face the Sunshine by Phyllis Harris, and coloured her with Copic Markers.  Don't you just love the sunflowers?

I'm finally settling down in my own place, and using every bit of time I can find to set up the craft room.  So far it's only got a desk and a shelf, well, it's a start, isn't it?

Wishing you all a Happy Weekend, and I can't wait to see what I've been missing for so long - join me by clicking over to the Unity blog.

Take care!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!  Here's wishing 2013 will be a fabulous year for all of us, in every way.  Today, I have a card to share from Inspired Stamps.  I felt it was rather appropriate to start the year with Proverbs 3:5, a verse to remind us to trust God for everything.

The Scripture verse is from the $3.99 set Proverbs 3:5.  I stamped the verse on white cardstock and diecut it, and added some piercing all around the edges.  This piece was adhered with foam adhesive to two layers of diecuts.  The finished card measures 5" x 5".  

I hope you like the card.  Please hop over to Inspired Stamps blog to see more inspiration from the Design Team ladies.

Have a great day!
