A Warm Hello!

I love these little ladies from Stampavie! They remind me of Holly Hobbie, excepting I get to color them any way I wish!!!! This one is all dressed up in Copics and the flower centers and scissors are glitzed up a bit with At You Spica Glitter Pens.

I have her layered over some nestabilities ovals....the embossing is subtle and oh so nifty!
Ribbon is by May Arts, the Fiskars Threading Water punch is perfect for a touch of white *lace.*
Designer paper is by Cosmo Cricket. A Warm Hello is by Hero Arts.

The flower is from the Ruffled Bloom set by Stampendous! I used the vellum embossing technique and my copics to dress it up a bit. Hope she makes you smile! ~michelle~

Blimey...I missed it!

This little Leprechaun was going to wish you a Happy St. Patty's Day, but he's a little late! This guy comes from High Hopes rubber stamps. He's colored with Copic markers and Spica pens to add some glitz to his gold accents. A few gold gems...dropping a few lucky coins. The oval mat was cut with the nestablilites. The sentiment is from Peddler's Pack. Hope this fellow puts a smile on your face and a spring in your step!

Just for You!

Just had to love those temperatures yesterday....SPRING is coming, I'm sure of it!!

This little ladybug from Whippersnapper designs was just begging to hop on this card! I colored her with Copic Markers and highlighted her with Spica Glitter Pens.

She is layered on two panels that have been cut with the Nestablilities Labels Two dies. I loved the shape, it gave little Miss Lady a place to stand!

The designer paper is by Cosmo Cricket and makes for a cheery card. I used some Conchos from Scrapworks to surround my gems for a fun and different looking embellishment. They are easy to use...just place your gem and then pop a concho over the top and flatten the little legs on the back with your piercing tool or bone folder.

I framed my ribbon with Fiskars Threading Water edge punch...love the lacey look it gives the card and the interest it adds to the ribbon.

Just for you is by Printworks. The card is finished off with faux stitching and distressing done with Making Memories scuffer.

Stampavie Stamps are here!!

These little cuties are SO fun to color....this one is all decked out in her Copic duds with white gel pen accents! She is framed so cutely with a Nestabilities frame that has been enhanced with faux stitching! Cosmo Cricket designer paper gives a fun summery feel, as do the prima flowers and the glitter dots!

Happy Birthday!

This little cutie is by Whipper Snapper, and is colored with Copic Markers and cut out. I popped him up on foam tape, and he is *standing* on the Birthday block. The shadow is sorta funky in this picture....but he looks like he's balancing on it in real life.

The birthday background is done with the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I inked the background with a white ink pad to make it *pop* out. The card is finished with Prima flowers, adhesive gems, ribbon and a glitter dot.
