The Bestest Birthday Ever


Woo Hoo, Thursday has rolled around again which means it's my turn to showcase a project for One Crazy Stamper, and I have another adorable Petunia image today!!

 
Say hello to Petunia Has a Party from Stamping Bella!  I have colored the image with my trusty Copic sketch markers, then added sparkle with a Sakura Clear Star pen, and white dots around the image with a Sakura white Glaze pen.  After cutting and matting the image with a Spellbinder die, and inking the edges with either Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet or Wild Honey distress inks, I then mounted it on the card front which features Authentique dp.  The sentiment is included with the image and finished off the card perfectly.

Cheer Somebody Else Up


I simply adore these new images from Stamping Bella featuring Petunia the pig - who doesn't love an adorable pig!!

 
This cutie is Petunia Thinks She's a Prezzie and is available here at One Crazy Stamper.  I colored the image with Copic sketch markers, then cut it with a Spellbinder oval die, and matched that to one of the newer oval dies from Spellbinders to create the decorative border.  The sentiment is included with the image.  My dp is an oldie from my stash (Authentique), as is the ribbon and Prima flower.

The More You....

Finally spent the day catching up on putting some recently colored images on to card fronts, and here is the first one - this stunning image is from Docraft's Simply Gorjuss Urban Rubber Stamps and is entitled "New Heights".

 
The image is colored with Copic markers, then fussy cut and adhered to the card front that features older Imaginisce paper and a Spellbinder diecut.  The wonderful sentiment is from Taylored Expressions "The Places You'll Go" stamp set, and the pearls in the corners were made with a Viva Décor Pearl pen.

Spring Chicks


Spring has arrived here in southern Alberta - beautiful weather, plants are peeking out of the soil and the garden is calling my name. 
 
 
For my post for One Crazy Stamper today I have colored up this adorable Stampendous image called Sharing which is available here.  Once the image was stamped on Copic Xpress It cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I used Copic markers to color it.  The image was matted and placed on a card front that features paper, ribbon and a sentiment all from my stash.

With a Little Help

Okay, where on earth do the days go?  It is hard to believe that another month is soon ending and the fourth month is just around the corner.  Between coloring, planning card making classes, studying medical terminology and now a new grand fur baby to babysit, my days are flying by.  

 
The weather here in southern Alberta has been exceptional, no snow to be seen and some people are saying that the plants are starting to peek out of the ground, so the days of warmer coats is coming to an end, but I fell in love with this gorgeous Art Impressions image and had to color it up.  This is Bench Set available here at One Crazy Stamper, that I have colored with Copic sketch markers and then cut and matted with a Spellbinder die.  The dp and ribbons are from my stash, and the sentiment is one of three that comes with the image.
You still have a few days left to enter the challenge to win a fabulous prize from One Crazy Stamper!

Thinking of You

The sun is shining, the small amount of snow we received on the weekend has long disappeared and spring is back, so thoughts turn to gardening.  The coming season is celebrated in today's card.

 
This beautiful image is Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl Winnie Peeking out the Window and is available at One Crazy Stamper here.  I have colored the image with Copics, added Flower Soft to some of the flowers, fussy cut it and then adhered it to a Couture Creations embossed card front.
