Full Heart

Hello! Today I am sharing with you a card using Full Heart from Mo's Digital Pencil.  The sweet sentiment also comes with the image!
This is dedicated to my three year old daughter who is always telling me to color everything pink! So this time I followed her orders and I went all out pink!
I used My Mind's Eye Paper, Wild Orchid Craft flowers, somee random lace and ribbon and a wood heart that I dabbed with paint. I distressed all the edges of my paper and stitched several layers.

Pink: RV000, R81,83,85,59

Kenny K New Release: Halloween Witches!

Good morning! Today I am sharing with you one of three witch stamps that Kenny K Downloads is releasing just in time for Halloween! They are super fun as they are not your typical Halloween witches with pointy hats and crooked noses. Kenny K has also come out with some fun and funny Halloween sentiments. 

Today is also the start of a new challenge: Spooktacular!

We have three sponsors this fortnight:

Kenny K Downloads with 5 digis of the winner's choice

Flonz with a $20 Gift Certificate

and The Hobby House with a £10 Voucher

For my project, I have colored up La'Spyda and I have put her on a wine tag!

I have used Carta Bella papers, some gauze, and I have used my Silhouette for the spider web and spider. On the spider I put a rhinestone that I colored with my V04 Copic marker. The recipient for this wine tag is having a Halloween party as it is her favorite holiday and her fave color is purple. She is also very sassy, so the image and the sentiment are totally up her alley!

This was my first wine tag attempt and it is rather large, but I wanted it in the shape of a coffin and wide enough for some embellishment. It actually isn't as large as it looks, as I didn't have a wine bottle on hand but a smaller rum bottle for the photo!

Don't forget to stop by the DT blog because there are two more witches to see and the DT have done an awesome job with them!

Thanks for taking a peek and can't wait to see what you all come up with for this Spooktacular challenge!

Harvest Fairy Apple

Hello, crafters! Today I am sharing with you a new stamp available over at Mo's Digital Pencil, Harvest Fairy Apple. How perfect is she for Autumn!?!
I have 3D paper pieced the leaves and apple, as well as the arrangement in her hair, which I have also added glossy accents to. To her wings, I have added glitter. I used a Prima stamp around the edge of my image with Antique Linen and distressed with Vintage Photo. I made a tag with a Martha Stewart deep edge punch, Floral Vine.

Skin-E000, 00, 21, 11 R20,22
Hair: E00, 13, 18
Leaves: YG 03, 63, 67 W5
Apple: R32, 35, 37, Y11 & YR02 and Colorless Blender

I was intimidated with the idea of coloring such a big space as the apple, but it really came together with some patience!

I hope you all like my card and go buy this Fairy cutie- you'll have lots of fun coloring her up!

Thanks for looking and enjoy your weekend!

A Day at the Park

Good morning! Here is my card I made to share on Mo's Dream Team blog. It's the sweet Deanna, which you can find at Mo's Digital Pencil.
I again used digital papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs, Something Pretty by Zoe Pearn. A button, some twine and a doily were my only additions! It's so bright and cheerful, it doesn't need much else. Maybe, a sentiment when I am ready to part with it:)

Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop

Woohoo! It's time for a blog hop! This hop a fun way for the Dream Team to craft and, hopefully, inspire everyone while also giving all who comment a chance to win some prizes along the way!

For my card I have used Lemons from Mo's Digital Pencil.

I have used some digital papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs, it was one of their freebies. It was my first time working with digital papers and it came put pretty nice as it came with ephemera like the postcard and stamp I used. In the corner I used a Joy! corner die and applied some Viva Pearl pen to jazz it up. Wild Orchid flowers were used, of course! 

My natural instinct was to use yellow as a main color being that the image was called Lemons, but I thought I would steer away from that inclination and use green and pink, which I am really pleased with!

Hair: E00, 13, 15, 18, 59

Case the Krafty Krew

Good morning, Kenny K followers! Today is the start of the new Kenny K challenge for the next fortnight. I have switched to Team B and so I get to share my card with you today! The theme for this fortnight is to CASE one of the Design Team's cards.


We have all submitted a card we had shared for a past challenge and I have chosen to case the card of the very talented Cheryl. Here is her card:

 I absolutely love her bold coloring and, especially, her bold background shadowing using vibrant colors. I think she did a dynamite job with her monochromatic card with the image popping with color. I hope I did her card justice!
I have used Inspector Em from the brand new release of Steampunk images. I love. love them!

Abby Celebrating

I am sharing my card for the Mo's Dream Team blog. I have used Abby Celebrating, which you can find at Mo's Digital Pencil.
I am really disappointed in my photo job and I'm out of town and can't change it :( I used Wild Orchid Craft flowers, Pink Paislee paper pad and a wood heart that I painted, frantaged, and stamped with a sentiment.

I had a lot of fun coloring Abby and if you are interested in the colors I used, I will edit this post or maybe a whole new post for all the cards I have done this last week and a half.

Thanks as always,
