I Like You A Watt

I just totally love the stamp set Watts Up that came with the Simon Says Stamp April 2014 Card Kit, there is so much you can do with it, and that light bulb is so cool. This is the second card that I made from the card kit, hope you love it as much as I do.

You Make Me Smile

When I saw the Miss Lilly Snap stamp I knew I would be making something different with her. A couple of weeks ago I got the question of a good dark skin copic colour combo, and I realized that dark skin is something I rarely do, so I did some searching myself and found loads of different combinations(most of them on pintrest), and this was my favourite one.

I Miss You

With easter almost over I thought a miss you card would be nice, a card to send to those I didn't have the opportunity to meet during the holidays. And I thought Long Hair Jessica would be a great image to use on that card. I also got to play around with some new color combinations. One where I use E04 as the darkest shade on her skin and a completely new for her blondish/golden brown hair.

Thankful for your friendship

You know I love challenges, being a DT for Make It Crafty I need to do a project each month for the Make It Colourful Challenge and I just love it. Challenges helps me a lot when my mojo is on the fritz, and it has been for the past months or so. The idea of being on 100% sick leave can seem to be awesome, all that time to craft. But in reality all I do is lay on the sofa watching TV series. But once and again I get that need to craft and that's when challenges are awesome, I thrive when I get some rules to follow.
This months challenge over at Make It Colourful is Purple and Turquoise for easy and colour on something else than white paper for the hard version. Well I went for the easy one this time and coloured up this adorable Baby Unicorn, which is a fairly new release from Make It Crafty. Hope you like it!

Easter Bunny - Copic Coloring and Card Tutorial

Easter is creeping upon us, and I really wanted to use another one of the newly released easter stamps from Little Blue Button Stamps. This one is called Miss Lilly Easter Bunny, isn't she cute! This time I wanted to go with a little bit vintage feeling, and choose a more dusty color scheme and paired that with lace and pearls.

A Challenge To Boot

Over at the Make It Crafty facebook group, Zoe, the owner of Make It Crafty asked us how we found out about Make It Crafty. Janette started talking about her first stamp, Boot House, that she loved but still hadn't colored, and a challenge was born. I always loved that stamp but as Janette I never really gotten it out to color. The stamp is available both as rubber and digi and part of the challenge was to color it in the same size. So here is mine, I even made it into a card.

Fluttering hearts

After finishing the kitten yesterday I just had to do the free card kit that came with this months The World of Cross Stitch. This month it's actually two cards, two beautiful butterflies designed by Madeleine Floyd. They came with two card bases but I felt they where a little plain. So I stamped them with Tim Holtz Papillon Stamp with Stormy Sky Distress Ink, I really like how they turned out.

A Little Bird Told Me

When I saw this cutie I knew I just needed to stitch him, it took me a whole month before I actually sat down and started him. He was a free kit with The World of Cross Stitching magazine, issue 214. I really love the card base that came with it, so I only stitched him up and mounted him in it.
