Here’s a sweet little card you could send anytime just to say “Hi”. Alex made this and once again raided her father’s train set box of goodies. Below you can see them actually standing on a bit of sand. She also finished the card using some glitter spray. I just think it’s so very sweet.

Post 5: I love the crispness of winter. For me it evokes the winding down of the year, being inside a little more, snuggling under blankets and fires in the fireplace. I know it’s a bit early to be thinking about, but it does make me happy.

A wonderful card for…well…really…anytime. Lynne created this lovely little card that could be used to brighten someone’s day. I love her use of white space, it really makes all her beautiful coloring stand out. For this card she used her watercolor pencils, added a bit of sparkle and a little clear gloss to Eloise’s handbag, hat ribbons and the bugs wings.

Speaking of happy…stay tuned for some upcoming posts featuring a little happy book. :)

For this adorable little Hoppy Easter card Lynne used two bunny stamps. She colored everything with watercolor pencils and added several layers of clear sparkle to the Easter egg. The faint little clouds were chalked in the background and the finishing touch – some pink splatters and a sweet little bow.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter.

stamping: here comes fall
Right now I’m loving watercolors. I stamped Crumbs and Baxter in black but weren’t sure what the scene was going to be in the beginning. I decided to stamp Bunch of grass twice in green. I knew I wanted the paper airplane to pull something…but what? Then it hit me! A leaf and “here comes fall”.

I watercolored everything, stamped the sentiment with an alphabet set and then added a little bit of Distress Ink around the edge. I tied a green ribbon bow and mounted the card on two pieces of paper – green with a linen print and then polka dots. Then I got out my sewing machine and added just a bit of stitching. I thought it came out pretty cute.

Here’s a close up.

Lynne Jardine - March calendar

Wouldn’t you just love to look at this cute little calendar page all month long! Lynne made this and it’s just so cheery and spring-y.  She said, “Ok, so in my head there’s a dancing competition going on in the woods, and the prize is a great big Easter egg!” I wonder who’s going to win!

Lynne said she colored everything in with watercolors and added clear gloss to the Easter egg. I just love the background sky with the little pops of color. I think watercolors are all the rage right now – I know I’ve pulled mine out and am having a little fun. I thought it was so clever to stamp the month in the cloud. Love it Lynne!!

Alex Menzlewski Happy Cup

Here’s an incredible project from Alex. Have you the travel mugs you can customize? I think people usually put pictures in them, but look what Alex made! She stamped and colored the sweetest little scene, taking extra precaution she laminated it and then slipped it in the travel mug AND she actually sent it to me! I’m doing a happy dance and enjoying a hot cocoa. Good thing it has a lid, otherwise beverages and dancing about don’t usually go together. :)

She also sent me some candy called “White Teds” that were white marshmallow gummy bears with different flavors inside. I believe I need a case of these because they were YUMMY!White Teds

Thank you Alex!!!

Oh, and here’s some pictures of the mug put together.

Diane Kaufman - sending love

Here’s a fun card for just about anytime from Diane Kaufman. She started with the perfect little fluffy cloud and sunshine paper for her background. Stamping little Penelope and kitty Percy she then cut them out – that’s a bit of cutting if I do say so myself. I love how she added a wee bit of sparkle to the flying fish. The little banner flying behind is just so sweet – topping it off with just a few clear drops was just perfect.

Holly - believe in the magic

I guess at the moment I’m into mostly white cards – well, not that I’ve created all that many, but sometimes white just looks so lovely. I wanted to create something using these bunnies and some dimensional plastic (Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi – Clearly for Art) that I had purchased awhile back and “oh my goodness” found while I was looking for something else. I think this must be my mantra. :)

I stamped the holiday flowers and watercolored them. I stamped them again and using the Clearly for Art plastic. This stuff you can heat and mold it – it keeps its shape and if you mess up, just heat it again and it’ll go flat. Anyway, I then die cut a large circle out of the front part of the card. I laid everything out – one bunny is stamped directly on the background, the other I cut out so it could peek over the circle. I embossed the sentiment and then cut it out. To put the card together I used foam tape. I glued the flowers on top of the ones I had stamped and added a little shimmer stitch with a pen.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

Donna West - not a creature stirring

Isn’t this a lovely Christmas card? It was made by Donna West and I just love the way she’s put everything together. She said she colored the images in with her Copic markers. I think the background stripe really brings out the red and white candy canes that Mouse and Kitty look so snuggly with. She added the perfect little poinsettia flower with a hint of green only from the leaves. Adding a wee bow and two red bits of bling finish it right off.
