Here’s a colorful birthday card sent in by Lynne. I think it’s so cheery and love that Arthur bear stands out. She said that in Northern Ireland, where she is, they don’t really have beach huts, but that she’s seen them when she went on holiday.

Here’s what Lynne wrote that she did…”I’ve had this old beach hut stamp in my stash for years now, so I’ve used it here as a background image and then coloured Arthur to match. Coloured with watercolour pencils. Chalked clouds. Arthur popped up on dimensional.”

Here’s a fun birthday card sent in by Alex. In this birthday “scene”, Norbert the dog is bringing balloons to the party and it looks like it must be time for dessert ’cause he’s running! After she colored everything in she used glitter spray on top of the card. I hope all the sparkles come through in the picture.

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.

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. :)

Lynne decided to do this really colorful background using a bit of Brushos. Have you heard of these? They are dry powered paints that you sprinkle on and then wet with a squirt of water. You never know exactly what it will look like which is part of the beauty. She stamped the Row of pine trees over the color background and used her watercolor pencils. She stamped Webster separately and used dimensional to pop him off the background. A few enamel dots and the card was complete.

I just love the little snippets of life Alex creates. Spring is in the air and Mrs. McTwitter is out for a walk with her little dog Tootsie. Alex always adds so many details making her scenes so complete. She’s added little bugs flying around and would you believe actual leafy material (she said she got it from her dad’s train layout). I hope he’s not missing it!

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.

Here’s a stackably fun card made by Alex. She used lots of different animals – cat, dog, bear, even a little ant and said that maybe they wouldn’t usually go together but here they are playing nicely together.

I always love seeing what Alex creates. I don’t think there is ever a dull moment in her imagination.

Here’s a fun way to personalize your morning cup of coffee. Alex sent this in and I just love it. There are lots of coffee tumblers out there and I know there are a few that can be personalized. The one that Alex made lets you unscrew part of the mug, create a picture, slip it in and screw everything back together.

She’s used just one stamp – actually a holiday stamp, but stamped it all around the insert and colored it in springy colors. Isn’t it just grand! For added strength she’s laminated the entire piece. So many possibilities!

Lynne Jardine - Barking on the front porch

Here’s an adorable card from Lynne. Usually when the Porch with light stamp gets used, the edges are off the card. But here she’s “floated” it which I think looks great. Lynne said she stamped the images and colored them in with her watercolor pencils. She then popped Webster and the bottom step/plant up on dimensional to add a little interest. The sky she chalked in background (a hint of clouds) and then added clear gloss to the light. I just love all the little embellishments – her sketchy lines, the little arrow that seems to hold it all in place and then bit of bling. Oh so cute.
