Happy Easter with Shelly’s Images

I am excited to have the chance to be a guest designer for Shelly’s Images. I loved this little sweet duckling the minute I saw it. The shading lines Shelly included on the image made it so easy to color.
Here is a look at how the image comes. For today only, it is on sale for $0.50 off the regular price. Isn’t he (or is it a “she”) perfect for your Easter and spring projects?
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful week!
Supplies:

  • Stamps: Duckling from Shelly's Images
  • Inks: None
  • Papers & CS: Stampin' Up Bella Birds Dp & Bordering Blue CS, PaperTrey white CS, Neenah Crest solar white CS
  • Tools: Sewing machine, Martha Stewart edge punch, Copic markers, Stampin' Up word window & 1-14" circle punches
  • Embellishments: PaperTrey button twin, misc. buttons and ribbon

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
