Is it getting chilly in here?

It's getting a little chilly around here now that Winter is on it's way! So I've created a card that's got some cool colours and shimmer fit for a snow princess.

The image I chose is from Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez and I coloured it with my Copics.  I then added some silver highlights to the ball in her hand, her headband, belt and shoes.  Lastly, I popped some tiny gems and dots of liquid pearls on.

This is such a sweet image to work with and could be coloured up for any princess or little girl.

I added a We Are Memory Keepers pinata trim to the patterned paper, and also added torn edges and doodling.

Happy Summer!

Is it summer yet in your part of the world? We're just starting (late) on Autumn, but I know a lot of my friends are finally seeing some sun and the snow has melted.

With the warm temperatures still lingering here in Central Queensland, we are still able to visit the beach, so I loved colouring this little guy and his sandcastle from Kinda Cute by Patricia Alverez.

I used my Copics to colour him in, a little white Signo Pen for zink on his beak and a few little gems for sparkle on the sand.

The borders are doodled with fine black pen.

For the ruffles around the bottom of the card, I used Fringe Tape from We R Memory Keepers (used for covering tiny pinatas).  The papers are from American Crafts and new to Spotlight.

Have a SPECtacular day!

This cute image is perfect for your favourite optometrist or bespeckled person.  It's from Kinda Cute and come with or without facial expression.

I coloured in the image with my copics and added doodling around the edge.

The card is made up of different scraps of patterned paper, and a journaling card.  This is the part that I love about cards, I get to use up all the paper that I have stashed from scrapbooking!

I also distressed some edges and added some gems.

Do you remember snail mail?

Do you remember the excitement of getting snail mail? I used to have Pen Pals as a girl and loved getting fancy stationery, photos and even coins in the mail from them.  Now it's all emails and text messages - it's fast, but it's not as fun.

I saw this cute little snail and instantly thought of good ol' snail mail.  So I made a tag to add to my next project.

This tag started as a piece of green cardstock.  I trimmed it to make a tag shape and then added the printed image.  If you want a cute little snail you can find it at Kinda Cute - I added the googly eyes and coloured him up in delicious greens and shiny browns.  Then I created some 3D slime using Glossy Accents.  I added some bubbles to the "slime" by heating it with my heating gun.

I haven't used fibers in a long time, and tags are the perfect excuse to use lots of them!  I went for lots of colours to accent the greens in the tag.

Ride your tricycle

Isn't he cute? I don't do enough little boy cards - having girls in my house, there's not a lot of little boys to buy for, or celebrate.  My "son" is a very large, boisterous and loud German Shepherd, and he enjoys all the attention he can get!

So today I'm enjoying a bit of colouring and thinking of all the wonderful things little boys get into.

This little fellow is from Kinda Cute and he's enjoying a ride on his little tricycle with his trusty bunny pal.

I coloured him using my Copics and then glossed the wheels and his visor.  I added the sentiment as a little flag on the back of the tricycle.

I created my card with some brightly coloured papers, some bold colours and some cute jelly beans stickers.  I created a band across the card using some rainbow washi tape and doodled some borders with a fine black pen.

Lots and lots of Easter Eggs

I have an invisible Easter Egg muncher in my house.  No one will own up to eating them so I can only assume it's the Easter Egg muncher! I put out the little eggs, I take some photos and BAM! as soon as I turn my back they're gone!  I actually had to brave the crazy crowds to buy a "top-up" bag!

So here is my card - with little eggs (for now) lol

I've used a Whimsie Doodles image for this card, and coloured it with my Copics.  I accented the eggs she's holding with Stickles for a little sparkle and some gloss for her eyes, bow and shoes.

I layered patterned paper in Easter colours, also using my edge punch and some Doodlebug Design stickers.

I added some little green bling dots and some doodling for the borders.  I love adding borders, it really finishes off the card.
