Charmaine Flannery's Inspiration Card

Hi to all our Sweet Pea Fans. Thanks for stopping by as I say a Sunny Hello here with my latest card. Today I am showcasing my DT Inspirational Card for Sweet Pea Stamps.

This beautiful stamp image is by artist, Charmaine Flannery's Rainbow Dream.   I do so love these images and decided this bright and cherry card would be perfect to help brighten someone's day.

I colored the images with my Copics and went all bright and cherry on it. I just started using this beautiful paper for stamp on, Cryogen White, and it is so nice.  It is definitely worth a try.  The paper is from my huge stash pile. The flower I made myself via the Cricut Art Philosophy Cart.

Hope you all have a great day.

I chose to pull out one of my old Sugar Nellie stamps I have and ink her up for this project.
I did some paper piecing to her dress. I used some papers from Authentique Lovely stash and the sentiment is from another stamp in my stash that I am not sure what the name is that I added to a diecut from my Cricut that I added some sponging too. The butterflies are from my bling stash

Soccer Layout

I am back with something I have missed very much...a Scrapbook Layout page. My kids just love looking through the pages I make and I have fallen behind. Spring Soccer starts this week and figured it is about time I made an attempt to scrap last Spring Soccer picture season.  I have another page to do for my middle daughter but managed to finish this one of my youngest.

There is a variety of Cricut die-cuts here. The soccer ball/Kick this is from the Soccer Cart, the star border is from Storybook and the banner from First Few Years.  The Title is from a swap I received and think she has a Cameo so not sure where she got that one from.   The paper is a variety of stash papers I had in my possession (CTMH, DCWV and some stickers from Echo Park).

The layout is inspired by Grand Diva Creative Corner though I did alter some of it to fit the pictures I have but hopefully you can still get the original inspiration from the sketch. I will be entering this one into the following challenges:

Scrap Our Stash-Hats and or Triangles (triangle banner and the bottom are large triangles.
Cut it Up Challenge-Anything Goes
Loves Rubberstamps-Use your Ugly Paper (not really a blue and orange fan but it went well with the uniform) is a helpful tip if you use GIMP to edit your work. Since some of my shots may contain other people then my children I go to transform and select the area I want to blur via ellipse or rectangle. Then I go to the Filter tab and hit on the blur section and hit pixelize and it will blur your selected area. Hope that helps so you can show off all your pictures.

Have a great day.

Rose Fairy Card

Hello Everyone.  I am back with a recent card I made for a few challenges I have seen around.  This image is available as a one stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps called Rose Fairy 2 or can be purchased as a digi  directly from her Mitzi's Etsy shop, Aurora Wings, as well.

Been working on various darker shades of skin so this is not as nice as the others but I will keep working on it. This one was colored with my Copics

Skin: 34,25,23,21,R34
Leaves: YG11, G20,G21,G24,G28
Red: R39, R27,R24
Eyes: BV00, B00,B12

What amused me the most is how I used Christmas paper for this one..Authentique Festive papers...loving using seasonal paper out of season for non Holiday cards when I can.

Whimsy Card

I am back!! Got to finally make up another card with this adorable image from Whimsy stamps from the Cottage Cuties Series.  I have to admit I tend to just color and then my images just sit in a pile and it take me so much longer to actually get them into  a card.

I colored the image with my Copics and used paper from my stash. The sentiment is from a Make it Crafty Stamp set I have.
