Spring Wishes

Good morning!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Today I'm sharing a card using a sweet digi from Whimsie Doodles.
 
 
I made this card awhile back but forgot to share it on my blog.  I'm ready for this cold weather to disappear so I thought this would be the perfect time to share a spring-themed card!  This little cutie is Garden Lizzie.  I colored her with copics and used Your Next Stamp's Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut all my papers.  I used My Favorite Thing's Fishtail Flags Layers STAX die-namic to cut the sentiment banner.  The sentiment is from SugarPea Designs and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I used a black glaze pen on her eyes and finished my card with a few bright enamel dots. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a great week!

Hugs, Anita

A Birthday Brew Just For You

Good morning!  I've taken a break from making Easter cards and have a fun birthday card to share today.


This adorable image is Newton Loves Coffee from Newton's Nook Designs.  There are several cute kitties and lots of fun sentiments in this set so you may want to stop by their shop and check it out!  I colored Newton and his coffee with copics and diecut the paper with the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  I sponged some distress ink behind Newton and added a few sequins to give my card some sparkle.  I used Glossy Accents on his nose and used a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the heart on the coffee band. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! 

Hugs, Anita

Hey Chickie

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a sweet little Easter card featuring an adorable stamp from Neat & Tangled.


This cute image is Cottontail Cuties and I fell in love with this stamp set as soon as I saw it!  I colored the image with copics and used the coordinating dies to cut out the image.  I used distress ink to apply some color behind the little girl and added a strip of rainbow paper along the bottom of the card.  I used a black glaze pen on the girl's eye and the chick's eye and then I applied a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the eggs.  I added a few sequins for some sparkle.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I Come Bearing Gifts

Today I'm sharing a card using some fun products from My Favorite Things.


This cute polar bear is from My Favorite Things' BB Polar Bear Pals stamp set.  I colored the bear and his bucket of fish with copics and then diecut them using the coordinating Die-namics.  I used Your Next Stamp's Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut the pattern paper.  I used MFT's Die-namics Stitched Circle Frames to create a shaker card window and added sequins.  I stamped the sentiment onto a banner I cut using the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX and then heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.  I used a black glaze pen on the bear's eyes and nose.
