Hop Hop

Here is my 2nd favorite card from the group I made with the Doodlebug Designs papers.  The bunnies and the words HOP came from the This & That pieces kit.  I used the Certainly Celery for the card base again and the 2 buttons were from my stash.Hi  Everything else is from Doodlebug.

Easter Parade


Hey everyone!  Here is a sample of some Easter cards I made using only the papers from Doodlebug Designs Easter Express collection. I used 12x12 papers, the This & That paper cuts, and a sticker sheet. I got this idea from one of the crafters I follow on You Tube, crazypaperchick. This first card I am spotlighting is my favorite. I did a Z fold pop out. The card stock used for the base is a retired Stampin UP! color Certainly Celery. I miss this color for Spring and Easter cards.  Come back tomorrow for another card from this group. Thanks for stopping by.

Come and create with me

New card and an update

 :  Hey everybody I have a new project today and an update on why I have been absent again.  Shortly before Christmas I started to have some trouble with my left foot and leg.  I have been going to the doctor and having tests done.  I have been diagnosed with drop foot which means basically that sometimes my foot doesn't bend like it should when I walk.  So I will be having surgery Wednesday to release the pressure on the nerve that is causing the drop foot.  This means 10 days at home recovering and hopefully lots of card making time.

Today's projects is something that I got inspiration from on the Elizabeth's Crafts page.  At first I thought this was a stamp but it is actually a peel off sticker.  I adhered the sticker to a piece of Bristol smooth white water color paper.  I used my Kuretake Zig Real Color Markers to color.  Unfortunately I didn't write down the colors I used but  I can tell you about the technique I used.

I put the color down and then used my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen to blend the color like you would using water except you get so much more SPARKLE!  The card base is from a value package I bought at my local Michael's .  The sentiments are from Unity Stamp Co., the one on the front is from the January Kit of the Month and says "once you choose hope anything is possible'.  The inside was a free sentiment from Unity and it says "find joy in the journey", which I forgot to take a picture of.  The embellishments are sequins and a small heart from my stash of stuff.

Thank you for stopping by and creating with me
