Love You

Good morning.  Today I'm sharing a sweet Valentine card using stamps and dies from Your Next Stamp.

This stamp set is Love and Smiles and it is one of my favorite YNS stamps.  The little animals and sweet sentiments are just irresistible and they make perfect Valentine cards!  I colored the bunny and balloons with copics and then diecut them using the coordinating die set.  I diecut the heart paper using the Stitched Rectangle Die and I used the Circles with Stitching and Piercing Marks Die to cut the white cardstock.  I added some ribbon, twine, and little tag.  I used Glossy Accents on the bunny's nose and Wink of Stella clear glitter pennon the balloons.

I'm entering my card in the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge #55.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Anita

Sending Hugs

Good morning!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  Today I'm sharing a card with a cute little panda bear by Gerda Steiner Designs.

This digital image is Peeking Panda and I colored it with copics.  I think this bear has the sweetest little face and I thought she'd go perfectly with the hugs sentiment.  I added some white highlights to her eyes with white acrylic paint and then applied some Glossy Accents to give her a shiny nose.  

I'm entering my card in the Gerda Steiner Designs 28th Share Your Design Challenge.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.

MarkerPOP Guest Designer

I'm so excited to be joining the MarkerPOP design team as a guest designer.  They have a new challenge starting today so be sure to stop by the MarkerPOP Blog for all the details.

Their challenge theme is Twinkle, Twinkle ... celestial, moon, stars, a night sky.  So I decided to use the adorable Somebunny I Love set by My Favorite Things.  I started my card by using the moon and star images from the set to stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper.   I used distress inks to create the night sky.  I cut the window frame from Neenah cardstock, using an older Memory Box die.  I colored the bunny with copics and used a black glaze pen on her nose.  I used the coordinating die-namics to diecut the bunny.  I stamped the sentiment on a banner I diecut using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you have an amazing week!

Hugs, Anita

You Mean The World To Me

Good morning.  I made this card while I was on the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen DT but never got around to sharing it on my blog until now.  It features a fun stamp set from Pink and Main.

This image is from the Owl Nerds clear stamp set.  This is one of my favorite Pink and Main sets and has several cute owl images along with lots of fun sentiments.  I colored the image with copics and then used the coordinating dies to cut the image.  I used the Stitched Rectangle Die to cut the star dp and the sentiment banner was cut with the Fishtail Flag Banner Die.  I applied Glossy Accents to the owl's beak and feet and added some enamel dots to finish my card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Anita

My Favorite Bookworm

Wow ... I really had to dust away the cobwebs to get to my blog!  I can't believe it's been almost a month since I've shared anything here on my blog.  My mojo took a lengthy vacation and this is the first time I have picked up my copics in forever!!! 

I fell in love with this BB Our Story stamp set as soon as I saw it.  Of course I always love Birdie Brown's designs and this little boy reminds me so much of my grandson, who loves to read.  I colored the image with copics and then diecut it using the Die-namics BB Our Story dies.  I stamped the sentiment onto  a banner that I diecut using the Fishtail Flags Layers Stax dies.  My papers are from Echo Park and I added some coordinating enamel dots to finish my card.

Copics used:

Season's Greetings

Good morning!  I hope you're having a fabulous week so far.  I'm sharing another Christmas card featuring a beautiful Christmas image from Power Poppy.

This image is from the Bottlebrush Holiday stamp set.  I colored the image with distress inks and used lots of Glamour Dust on the ornaments to add some pretty sparkle.  I used the MFT Stitched Circle Frames to cut out the image and then I stamped the sentiment on a banner I cut with the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX.  The pattern papers are from My Mind's Eye 6x6 Sugar Plum collection.  I added some MME Sugar Plum Enamel Shapes to finish my card.

Thank you for stopping by!

Guest Designer - Inspired By All The Little Things

Good morning everyone!

I was so excited when Karren asked me to be a guest designer at Inspired By All The Little Things.

Here is this weeks' inspiration photo ...

And here is the card I made ...

As soon as I saw the inspiration photo I knew I had to use Lawn Fawn's Home For The Holidays stamp and die set.  I started by sponging blue distress ink on a piece of watercolor paper.  I spattered some water to create what I hope looks like a snowy sky.  The snowbank was diecut using the Cat's Pajamas' Hill and Dale CutUps.  I colored the car with copics and stamped the tree with green ink. 

I hope you play along with the challenge this week!  Be sure to stop by the Inspired By All The Little Things blog to see what the design team created based on the inspiration photo.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita

Have A Beary Good Birthday

I have a fun birthday card to share today using some products from My Favorite Things.

This cute polar bear is from My Favorite Things' BB Polar Bear Pals stamp set.  I colored the bear with copics and then diecut him using the coordinating Die-namics.  I used Your Next Stamp's Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut the pattern paper.  I used My Favorite Things' Die-namics Let It Snow to cut a snowflake and then I added an enamel dot to the center.    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.  I used a white gel pen to make the polka-dots on the scarf and added some Glossy Accents to the skate blades.   

Thank you so much for stopping by!
