Images Looking for a Home

Hello and Welcome!!!

Do you have images that you've colored while watching tv, and you haven't made them into cards yet?
Well that's what I did this weekend.
I have had no krafty mojo this weekend,
so I thought I should at least make cards with images I had laying around that need a home.

This one I didn't finish totally, 
because I don't know what occasion to make this card yet.
But it's ready if needed!

This one I even used some watercolor paper scraps I had, thought they would go great together.

Used some paper scraps with this one as well.
Love going through all of my stashes and
using items I have been hoarding.

This little water-colored bear has been waiting
for a home for quite a while.
I painted this one and the next one a long time ago when I went through my watercolor phase.
Do you do that as well...go through various coloring phases?

Here's the other.
Just like the first, but switched the colors around.

This little doggie had been water-colored a while ago as well.

And last, but not least...
Miss You Pig Time! LOL!!!
Added some enamel hearts and we are good to go.

So I was wondering...and would love to hear your comments...
Do you color images in various mediums 
and put them away for a rainy day?
Also, do you go through coloring medium phases?
Watercoloring, markers, pencils...and so on?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Take care!

Jungle Love

Hello and Welcome!!!

This weeks post has some Jungle Fever to it.
I purchased a couple of jungle-themed stamp sets
and a tropical bird one as well.
I guess to get me in the summery spirit.
I also purchased some leaf dies.
I put them all together and look at the cards I made!

This first one has the monkey just hanging out in the leaves
with his buddies to say hello



This one is a floating card.
I saw the instructions on YouTube 
and thought I would give it a go.
It was rather fun to make.
Again, the monkey is just hanging out with the rest of his buddies.




These were fun to make and I hope you enjoyed seeing them.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Take care and see you soon!!!

Summer is Here

Hello and Welcome!!!
So the temperatures have hit 100 down here in Florida,
so I guess that means that Summer is Here!!!
To tell the truth, I actually love it.
When I lived up north, 
we would stay in when the winter months would come around because it would be so cold and dreary.
Now, I just stay in during the summer months 
because it can get so hot here.  
The difference, to me, between the two...
The sun is out more here.  
The sunshine just makes me smile.

Besides, staying in...means more crafting time!!!

I love these mermaids,
so I colored up a bunch and made a couple of cards.

This one actually has a background that I made a LONG time ago.  It's a brown paper bag that I crumpled up and painted with a shimmery turquoise acrylic paint.
Wow, has to be at least 5-10 years ago I made it.
May have to try that again real soon.


The background on the next one is distress oxide inks
and I splattered it with water.



I hope you enjoy your summer wherever you are.
Take care and thanks for stopping by!!!

I have a five-day weekend and I am loving it!
It is also the love of my life's birthday!
So I figured I would put up some birthday cards this week.

I think this bird stamp set is so cute.



This little boy fishing stamp set is too cute too...
Especially with the duck and cat to keep him company!


This one is just to say hello...


I love this girl...so me!!!

Come to my window

This week I played with a die that I have in my stash 
that has five windows.

I purchased a new stamp set of woodland characters,
stamped them all up and colored them all in.
I knew I had more than for one card...so I made two!

I also used a die cut of trees...
I knew it would come in handy.



On this one I also put some confetti sequins.



This next one I did with glitter, made all the windows shakers
and decided to use the viking stamp set 
I colored in a while back.



These were a lot of fun to create and I see me using this die more.
Thanks a lot for stopping by.

Happy Mother's Day

Hello Again...and Happy Mothers Day!!!

Here are some cards I have made in May.
I love keeping photos of my cards since most of them
are given to either Family or Friends.

This one was so much fun to make.
My die-cut collection is growing so I had the grass, trees and leaves from various ones I have purchased.
I thought this stamp set was adorable.
I love the little tourists with their camera and binoculars.

I even colored enough images to be able to put one inside!


This next card is using a stamp set I have used before,
but I just love the sentiment I used from another stamp set.


Yes, I had an image for the inside for this one too.


These little fairies are just too cute and with someone's
birthday coming up, I thought they would love it.


Yes, I used one of the flowers for the inside.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
These cards were so much fun to make and I love sharing them.

Down on the Farm

I am still creating and having a ball!!!

The following cards were created in April.
And actually, most of them were made with items that I had
stamped a while ago, and finally put together on a card.

This farm scene, I had the animals made already.
I purchased the background die-cuts and knew it would be perfect together.



I had already colored in the girl,
but the NYC skyline die cut was just purchased and again...
I knew they would be perfect together.



This one I purchased the tree die cut and put it together
with the cute monkeys.
I think I need to go a bit lighter on the monkeys faces.



I had the little fairies made,
but remembered I had this star galaxy background 
and thought it would go together.
And I think it does.


See...never throw out those extra stamped items,
you may be able to use them on a new card.

Some April Kard Kreations

Here are some cards I created in April.

This card I used a new cloud stencil with oxide ink for the background with blending brushes.  
A New York Skyline Die Cut is also silhouetted in the background in black.
The grandma superhero stamp is adorable and colored in alcohol markers.
I fussy-cut her and added foam tape to the back to lift her up.


The next birthday card was so much fun to make.
I die cut a lot of the parts and added brads to the record 
and the tonearm so that they can move 
as would a real record player.





The stamp set for this next card I think is just adorable.
These birds look like they are ready to party!
I colored them all in with alcohol markers
and the background was done in oxide inks.
I also die cut a border for around the scene 
and some grass for the background.


I had so many birds, I put one inside the card as well.


Until next time...
