Stamping Bella Baby Shower Card

I started out my card making craze when I was 8. A really nice couple moved in next door and they loved having me over, I would spend almost every Saturday at their house doing whatever they were doing. Shortly after I started hanging out there, Rene got into selling Rubber Stamps. It was not uncommon for her to host a craft night every Friday with her sister and niece, me and my mom, and several other girls. We would stamp and just have a blast, it was there that I found out how much I LOVED making cards. Sadly, both my family and theirs ended up moving, but somehow I inherited a TON of Rene's stamps. Those stamps were one of the greatest gifts I've ever received, and I still use many of them to this day.
Flash forward to now, and I still love to stamp. I have gotten into my Cricut (R) Expression 2 a lot, but I still love the cards that I stamp and color. I am now working on developing my own style and flair and I love combining my stamped images and die cuts. This card was no exception to those rules.
I started with one of my favorite line of stamps from Stamping Bella (R) and then colored her with my favorite coloring tools, Prismacolor Pencils. I am by no means an expert at coloring, but I am learning. About a year ago I realized that I really needed to step up my game in coloring. After watching tutorial after tutorial I found a style that I liked and worked well for me so I just dived in and have been learning along the way.
After coloring the image, I found some paper that went well with my color theme, some of them were scraps some of them were new sheets and I layered up my pieces until I found a layout I liked. My finished project turned out like this:
It didn't turn out too bad if I do say so myself. If you want to purchase Stamping Bella Images you can check out all her designs here.
Once again, Thanks for Reading!

Sasayaki Glitter Christmas Shaker Card

Hi Friends! Today I am sharing a card using an image I had the privilege of coloring for the Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps Nov. 1st New Release.  I couldn't wait to color this image us as I had inspiration for what kind of card I would make before I had even printed the image to color. I love those AH HA moments.
This was my second attempt at a shaker card. I am still trying to get the technique down without getting sequins and glitter stuck on the foam that raises the shaker layers. But, I thought this turned out really well for a second attempt. Here is a close up of my colored image. I colored the image with my Prismacolors using the pencils themselves as the blending agent on Canson Mi Teintes white paper. The Merry Christmas Sentiment came from a friend of mine from a Kit and Clowder Facebook Card Swap. Let me Tell you, I am so thankful for Alyce and Kit and Clowder. I look forward to all the coloring classes and group support you get from being apart of her group!

Julia Spiri Scalloped Circle Easel Card

Hi All! Today I am sharing a project I made using this "Mask Girl" stamp from Julia Spiri's Digital Stamp Shop. I used to not be into the color purple, but over the last few years, it has really grown on me, and I thought purple would be just fantastic on this image. 
I colored this girl with my Spectrum Noir alcohol pens then I accented it with stickles glitter.  The card base is from another project I'm working on and will hopefully share with you all in the near future.  The lace and ribbons and green stick-on gems are all random finds from our local Walmart. and I accented with some Mulberry roses from Hobby Lobby as well as a couple handmade roses from your's truely.  Here's a little closer shot of the card and image.
I am entering my image in the following challenges: Julia Spiri Challenge Blog #25 Anything Goes with a Twist of Tic Tac Toe Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog #134 Lots of Layers + a Stamp Crafting when we can #130 - No Square Cards

Demera Bashful Fae Scalloped Easel Card

Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing yet another card I made with my Scalloped Easel SVG Template that I designed this week. Keep looking later this week for more info on how you can get that SVG for free.  For this card I used a freebie image from the Faery Inks Facebook group. I believe she is called Demera Bashful Fae. If you just LoVE this image check out more from the Faery Inks Shop. You can also join the Faery Ink Facebook Group as well.

One of my favorite parts about the Easel Cards is that they make the cards more like gifts than cards. I love to accent them with tons of embellishments as well. This one I acc noted the images with a variety of pink papers and fake daisies and a couple of my handmade roses, as well as some burlap and lace.
I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Pens. I am still very much getting the hang of coloring with alcohol pens, but I am pleased with the way she turned out.  I am super excited about sharing my SVG with everyone so keep checking…
