Easter Chick Card

 
 
 
Hello everyone, today is my day to show you some great Pinque Peacock Products.  And this cute card is loaded with products you can get from the store.  Fun papers, and a great fabric covered button
 
I am in the process of making Easter cards and thought this cute little chick from my Cameo software would be the perfect fit for the spring colored papers.  Both the pink and the green papers come from Pinque Peacock

I used my Swiss dots CuddleBug embossing folder on the green piece of paper.  I topped that off with a nice yellow to coordinate with the chick, then added another shape from the pink paper.  I of  course popped the shapes off the green paper and the cute little chick off the pink.  I am the pop dot  queen.  I use them all of the time.  

I made a double looped bow from some satin yellow ribbon, and added a fun fabric button to top off the card. 
 
I hope you like it.

Sunsational Stamps ~ Mouse Under A Flower

Here is a quick fun spring card for you today. 



For this colorful card, I first colored the digi using Photoshop.  I played around with the filters and the gradients until I found what I like for the flower. 

I completed the card by using colorful sunny bright papers.  I don't normally make my cards square but this size of this image called for a square shaped card rather than my normal size. 

I finished off the card by adding yellow and orange trendy twine with a sunflower button. 

Quick and easy!!!  You can find this digi in the store here.

Thanks for stopping in!

Princess Jasmine ~ SherriBaldy My Besties

 
 
 
Good Morning,
 
Today is my day to share on the Scrapbbook Stamp Society Blog.  Today I am working with another on of Sherri Baldy's great besties.  I just love these digital images and how fast and easy they are to work into a card or other project.
 
Today, I am using Princess Jasmine for my card.  This is a fun image to color, and even easier for me to put into a nice simple card. 
 
I
 colored Princess Jasmine with my Prisma colored pencils and blended softly with my Gamsol.  This is the best technique that I have found works for me.  While it is hard to see the details in the picture, I used my Jelly Roll sparkle pens to color her crown jewels and her eyes.   I also highlighted her best with the sparkle pens.

I topped the card off with a rosette made from the Tim Holtz die, added a button, then a gold gem.  I finished the card off with a beautiful pearl stick pin from Pinque Peacock and three small sapphire gemstones.

I hope you like my soft simple card.  I know I sure do.  I very seldom put sentiments on my cards until I am ready to use them.  This could easily be a birthday card, or even a good luck  card.  When the time is right, I will add a  quick sentiment.

As always, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment.  Your comments help me continue to improve my designs.

All American Birthday Bestie

Check out this adorable All American Birthday Boy digital image by Sherri Baldy Stamps.  Is it not the cutest little baseball player you have ever seen?

If you know me, you know that I like clean and simple and when I create my cards, and with images as adorable as this, why add anything to take away from that cuteness. 

A simple bow, a couple of gems and this card is done. 

I hope you like it!!!

Rainning Hearts

Hello everyone!!!!!  Today I have for you a cute card I made combining two of my favorite business. Pinque Peacock and Sherri Baldy Stamps

I used a Sherri Baldy Stamps digital image and colored it with my brand new Prisma Colored Pencils.  After I colored her, I blended her with Gamsol to give her the fun look.  I love the pastel colors and always tend to gravitate in that direction when I color.

I love the raining hearts under the daisy, and decided I wanted them to stick out a little bit so I colored them using my glitter gel pens. 

I embellished my card using 3 Girls Jam Ribbon, a denim button and a beautiful pearl stick pin from Pinque Peacock.

And The Letter Is . . .

Good Afternoon,

Today I have a fun project to share with you that I am working on.  I say working on because I ran out of some of the supplies and I need to get some more so I can finish it up, but I wanted to share it with you anyways.



I am working on a door plaque for my craft room door using the Sherri Baldy Stamps letter K Bestie.  Isn't she simply adorable.

Most of you know that my favorite color is pink, so that was just the logical color choice for me, and of course, you have to mix that with one of my favorite flowers, roses.  The paper is My Minds Eye. Of course no project would be complete without some bling and flowers. 

I colored this adorable Bestie with my Prisma Color Pencils, but this time I chose not to blend them with my gamsol, I just simply used a blending stump to blend the strokes.

I say she is not yet completed because I want to add some pretty ribbon (which I did not have any I liked) to hang it on my wall or door, then add more floral around the ribbon.  The top spot about the little girls hair needs more floral, but I don't want to add it until I get my ribbon and add the flowers with the ribbon.  I am also trying to decide if I want to mount her on some green before I mount her on the chip board.  What are your thoughts?  Does it need a bit of green to pull out the green in the flowers?

I would love to know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
