Garden Gnome

Thought I would play with some card art this week so I've used a Dutch Doobadoo template, 306-Card Art A4 Swing Card 4, paired with Pion's "Where The Roses Grow" papers.  They are so pretty!!  The image is Whimsy's "Garden Gnome" and I colored her with my poorly neglected Copics.  😁  She is so versatile, you could color her for anything!

Isn't this little Scrapiniec bench cute?  Just seem to be perfect for that little spot on the card.

Here's a better view of that stunning Joy oval flower frame.  I have it coming on a few more projects too.  Pretty isn't it?  I'm always a sucker for a nice Joy die.  😀  I'm not too sure if you can see it very well, but I added some tiny pearls around the image using a pearl pen from Dutch Doobadoo.  It might look like maybe next time I should make bigger pearls.  LOL!

Ooooo I have quite a bit going on here!  I started with another rectangle frame Joy die, added a layer of Pion dp, then that gorgeous Scrapniec frame with clock and the "HAPPY" sentiment from the Pion borders paper.  At the end, I added some Wild Orchid roses to finish it off.

I am quite enjoying making these Foamiran flowers!  I used the Rosy Owl Flower Dies 2, then popped in a pearl center and added some Glossy Accents to the middle and sprinkled some glass glitter.

Ok well there you have it for me this week!  Hee hee  😁
I am having a friend over on Friday to craft all day so am looking forward to that.  I hope you have some crafty plans too!  Thanks for stopping by!

LDRS All Dressed Up "Gal Pals"

Today I am showing you the card that is on the front of the December 2016 issues of Papercraft Essentials.  I just wish I could have done a better photo layout like they did but I'm still practicing!  LOL!  I used one of my favorite Dutch Doobadoo shape art templates "A4 Flower with 4 Petals" and paired it up with the Craft & You "Lavender Garden" papers.  They are stunning!

Ok so THAT was sooooo exciting!!  WOW!  😁😁😁   I used the super cute image from LDRS All Dressed Up "Gal Pals" rubber image and colored with Copics. 

I popped up this gorgeous bronze butterfly on top of some Marianne tassels and WOC flowers.  

Here's another one of my little bouquets and in this one I used a Noor Tag. #2 and doubled them up.

I added these bark hearts and a pretty little WOC daisy for one more touch but you could use any flower there!

Thanks for stopping by today!!  I hope you have great and creative weekend.  I am heading into one soon myself.  hee hee

Tilda With Little Rudolph

I KNOW I KNOW!!  Yes, it's another Christmas card!!  I couldn't help myself!!  I have to tell you that this year's Maja Christmas papers "I Wish" were my all time favorite xmas collection EVAH!!!  I used almost all of it!!   I also used the Card Art A4 Triptych 2 template from Dutch Doobadoo, which I found to be fun to show a little scene.

I still hadn't used any of the new Noor items in the shop until now because when I received my last package it was close to xmas and time to pay attention to other things but before I put this batch of embellishments away for the season I had to add to my card, the snowman charm, cinnamon stick, shabby white Star of David, the tin bells and mini pine cones.

I had one more image colored up so I just HAD to use it!!  It's so rare for me to use an image twice, only because I usually have a stack waiting to be played with, but I loved this one so much I had to color up two of them.  Tilda with Little Rudolph was from the Magnolia Aspen Collection and there are still some of the images from the collection left so grab yours before they are gone!

Also in this package I FINALLY got a chance to play with Magnolia Doohickey volume 12, which in this case was the little house, tree stump and leaves.  That little house is so stinkin cute!!

And lastly, just a close up of the Holly Jolly Merry Christmas die from Find It Trading.

Well, welcome to year 2017!!  I hope this one is good to you and even better than last year.  
Thank you for stopping by again!!
