Beach Babe Hippo

Hey everyone, here is a summer themed card for you. The image is called Beach Babe Hippo, from Sandra Caldwell available today in  her Etsy shop. I have colored her with Copics, the background was done with distress inks,  I first sponged on the mustard seed, then used the morning marigold to add the rays like a sun. I stamped the greeting on top in Coastal Cabana ink, and then used some torn brown paper for sand, and added the flip flops. I love all of Sandra's animal images they are just so fun.
Thanks for stopping by.

Gypsy Flower

Hi Everyone I am here once again with a new challenge at Little Patch of Crafty Friends.
This time around we have two wonderful sponsors

I am using the image from Moon Flower stamps called Gypsy Rose, and the Treasure my Heart Digital Paper from Michelle R Designs on my card. I have sponged and distressed the edges of the paper with Soft Suede Ink, and used some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from a Stamp Set called Blooming with Kindness from Stampin Up, which was stamped with Rose Red Ink and then distressed as well. the only other element on the page is some lace which I added under the border of the one panel. Thanks for looking. Have a great day.

Party Monster- Sasayaki Glitter

Hi Everyone this is my latest card and inspiration for Sasayaki Glitter stamps. I am using the image called Party Monster, Isn't he just so cute. Love this image. you can find this image here
For this card I decided to try a little something different, I have a bunch of different glitters in some cool colors, that I don't use often, so decided to try them on a background I embossed the background first with a large dot folder from Stampin up, then I used my tombow glue and put glue on the dots I wanted in the purple and added the glitter, shook off the excess, then did the same for the yellow ones. I like the way it turned out, and it was fun.  I colored the image using copics, and then added some sequins o it, and then made a computer generated sentiment, and added a sequin to it as well.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

This first image is called Lady Belle Loves Coffee. 
i have colored her with copics. I then added a border of piercing, and matted her onto Wisteria Wonder card stock. the outer border of embossing is done with the Elegant Lines  embossing folder from Stampin Up. The sentiment is stamped with Wisteria Wonder ink, and is from the stamp set Morning Cup, also  from Stampin Up., and lastly I added a couple of color dots. 

My second card for the release is called Teacup Mouse, such a sweet image. i also colored it with copics. i then used Nestibilities from Spellbinders to cut out the image and mount it. i have used designer paper from the retired set Time for Tea, by Stampin Up. Again the teabag is from the Morning cup stamp set, and actually the sentiment is frim there as well, but it wasnt large enough so did my own computer generated one.
