Hi there! I am sharing a card today using the image called, Splash, by Mo's Digital Pencil.

Scrapbook card using Splash by Mo Manning, Copic markers and My Minds Eye paper by Danielle Copley

I have had her for awhile and thought it fitting to get get her on a card while we are in the month of April- April showers. Although, here in Southern California were are going through a drought. Maybe this will be a good luck charm to bring on the rain!

I have used an old MME paper pad: Indie Chic 'Nutmeg'. The flowers are my go to Wild Orchid Craft flowers and the enamel dots are from the Prima Princess Brads package. Another go-to embellie is seam binding which I have dyed with Wild Honey Distress Ink.

Thankful Card

Good morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend! 

Today I am sharing a card for Whimsy Stamps using my favorite Mini Chalkboards stamp set by SC Designs. I warned you I would use every stamp in this set! You can click on the following links to see my previous cards: Birthday Wishes, Home Sweet Home, True Love Whimsy Card

Thankful card, Vintage perfect for Thanksgiving using Maja Design papers for Scrapbook Maven

I have used some Autumnal papers by Maja Designs. I thought they would be perfect for this Thanksgiving inspired card and sentiment stamp. I got out my Viva Decor Pearl Pen and went to town to add some interest to the borders. The sketch is from Viva La Verve. I loved Laurie's card, so I took a lot of element ideas from hers like the torn paper that is sewn and the addition of vellum, although mine is not stamped. 

I hope you like this series of cards. If you haven't checked it out, you should and while you're there put it in your shopping cart because it's a super sentiment set to have on hand!
Stay tuned for more cards using the set!

I have used a scallop 'border' around my image and I love how the leaves on the image crawl up the fence like a border.

Little Walker

Hello! I am back with my Mo's DT card to share! I am suffering from the flu, so it is a bit of a miracle I was able to get it done! I used the adorable Walker from Mo's Digital Pencil

Mos Digital Pencil Walker for Scrapbook Maven using Maja Designs paper

Luckily I had this cutie colored up a few days ago, so all I had to do was the card base. I used Maja Vintage Spring papers and various embellies from my stash.

Birthday Wishes

Good morning! I have a quick share today of a card using the fabulous Mini Chalkboards by SC Designs of Whimsy Stamps! Have I mentioned before how much I love this set?
Vintage Whimsy Mini Chalkboard for Scrapbook Maven using Maja Design papers paper flowers

It's such a fast card compared to one with a colored image, but still takes thought  design-wise because there is no image to take the load, lol! 

I used my Copic BV02, I believe, to color the background layers and the ribbon I threaded through the crochet lace. I haven't used rhinestone flourishes in a while and I really love them, so my mission with this card was to use one! I added some glitter glue around the sentiment for a little added detail.
The paper is Maja paper. I love how thick it is as it distresses so nicely with my scissors!

Let me know what you think!

Home Sweet Home

I'm back! Today I would like to share a card I made using the adorable Kansas by Mo's Digital Pencil, inspired by Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. I have also used one of the Mini Chalkboards 1 sentiment stamp set from Whimsy.

 I have used Maja papers of course and beautiful flowers from Live and Love Crafts that I won a while back. I love the pop of red in this blue card and I had to glitter up her shoes to make them pop even more!
