Happy Gnome Day

You gotta love Gnomes on bad days and good and as the sentiment says " Keep calm Gnome Matter what".  Love, love, love all of the new gnome images from Stamping Bella and this one is definitely a favorite!!!


The image was colored with Copic sketch markers, and then placed between two borders that feature a My Favorite Things scallop die edge.  A nice clean and simple card design.

Twinkle a Little Fairy Dust


It's a cool drizzly day here in the Kootenay's so to brighten up the day I have created an adorable card with the colors of spring!

This sweet image is "Twinkle Fairy" from High Hopes rubber stamps, and can be purchased here at One Crazy Stamper.  I stamped the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock with My Favorite Things Cement Grey hybrid ink, then colored it with Copic markers, adding just a touch of Prismacolor pencils to deepen shadows and add highlights.  After fussy cutting the image and placing it on the card front, I created dots of sparkle and covered the wings with Ranger Frosted Lace Stickles.  The sentiment is also available at One Crazy Stamper, and is also part of the new release "A Magical Day".

Butterfly Memories

When I first saw the Butterfly images from Stamping Bella I just knew that they would be jumping into my shopping card - and I finally got them to play with.  This first card features Tiny Townie Butterfly Girl Babette who is actually my favorite of them all!


My vision for this card from the moment I saw the image was to make a sympathy card with this gorgeous girl.  The sentiment I chose to use could be used for sympathy, or words of encouragement, and is part of a set of sentiment from Stamping Bella available here.  I stamped the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock and then colored it with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.  The wings were covered with a coat of Wink of Stella clear, and there are tiny dots of Nuvo Crystal drops and Ranger Frosted Lace on some of the dots on the wings and flower centers.  Once the image was fussy cut, I adhered it to the card front that features Graphic 45 paper.  A touch of black ribbon and a small twinkle goosebump finishes off the card.

April Perpetual Calendar

April arrived a few days ago so it's time to show you the page that I painted with Distress ink reinkers and a waterbrush.  This beautiful image is from Crafts and Me and is drawn by Sara Burrier.  There are touches of Wink of Stella clear glitter on the wings.  Only eight more months to show you all.

Dragon Imagination

Welcome to another Wednesday and my card for One Crazy Stamper.  The design team divas are showcasing the wonderful new release "A Magical Day" from High Hopes Stamps, and when I first saw these cute dragons I just couldn't wait to color them!!


This is "Dragon Pals" have I stamped with Cement Grey Memento Ink on to Copic Xpress it cardstock and then colored with Copics.  The dots on the large dragon were done with a green gel pen, and I used a clear Wink of Stella brush on the wings of all three characters.  The sentiment is also from High Hopes Stamps and is available here.  I inked the sky with Tumbled Glass distress ink, the hills were done with Bundled Sage, and the castle was inked with Hickory Smoke distress ink.  The stencils were from My Favorite Things and Tim Holtz ( the stone work on the castle ), and the castle is a die from My Favorite Things.

It's a Black and White Kind of Day

It's been one of those weeks and so for today's card I decided to challenge myself to an all black and white card - something I try to do at least once a year. I think this one turned out great!!


This sweet image is "Wizarding Gnome" from the A Magical Day release at High Hopes stamps.  I stamped the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and then colored it with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.  The stars and glitter were colored with a Sakura Clear glitter pen and then I added Wink of Stella silver to the larger stars.  The star flourish is an oldie from Memory Box and the frame is an unknown brand.  The sentiment is from the same release and is available here.
