Happy long weekend

Hi there, hope you are all enjoying this fabulous long weekend. Finally beautiful weather that we can enjoy without rain and humidity. I am sorry that I haven't posted in awhile but the summer has been so busy with family, friends and work. I am very busy designing for my upcoming classes and for the cruise that I am going to teach on Oct. 19. This cruise is being sponsored by Stamping Bella, Papertrey and Gina K and I am so excited to be a part of it .

I made these 3 cards awhile ago and thought that I would share them with you.

All Stamps and supplies are from Stamping Bella

The first card is Matilda Muffinbread and this is one of the first images I used my Copic Markers to colour with. For the background I stamped the " 3 separate dot backgrounds" in Mementos Pear Tart ink and used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots for the pink layer. The glitter and pink Bon Bonz add the finishing touch.

The second card I used Pots O Stuff from the Cilla Rose collection. I just love this stamp it is so cute and easy to colour. I used Copic Markers here as well. I stamped the pots twice and cut out the middle pot and used it as an embellishment to put the happy birthday coming out of it and of course once again the glitter and rhinestones finish the card.

The third card is the Balloon Circle . I used my Lyra coloured pencils and mineral spirits to colour and pulled the colours from the decorative paper. I added the glitter and ribbon for that last touch.

Hope you like these cards, I will try to post again in a few days. Thanks so much for stopping by. Please leave a comment or email me at I would love to hear from you

Happy Thursday

I finally have my camera figured out and working. Thought I would post these 2 cards, by now you must have figured out how much I like to use pink, kiwi green and black.

All stamps are from Stamping Bella
embellishments, patterned paper and ribbon also Stamping Bella

The you're tea-riffic card is coloured with mineral spirits and Lyra pencils and I put glitter around the hearts, lid and flower on the tea pot. Did you see the faux pink eyelets at the bottom of the card.

The true friend card , I used Copic markers to colour and shade the image. The pink BonBonz are so pretty in the center of the flowers and I framed the image with glitter. I don't know if the glitter shows but it really sparkles and finishes the card.

The Bella store just got in the new Cuttlebug embossing folders and I am really looking forward to using them , aren't they great ?
Are any of you going to Novi convention in Michigan next week ?
