Little Girl holding Cat Thank You Card

It's time for me to share my Sweet Pea Stamps DT project with you, and this one is a cutie.


My card this week features a super cute image by Molly Harrison called Little Girl Holding Cat 1.  Molly Harrison is one of the newer artists at Sweet Pea Stamps and if you've not seen her images yet, then you really must check them out.  Molly's images are simply beautiful, featuring pretty little girls, fantastic fairies and fairytale creatures, along with lots of beautiful mermaids. They really are magical.

I love the pretty heart dress this little girl is wearing, so used the hearts as a theme on my card, so used a few heart buttons to embellish my finished card, along with some funky striped paper, organza ribbon, and a diecut lacework background. I added a 'Thank you' sentiment sticker and my card was complete.

That's all from me for now.  Thank you so much for visiting with me today. Make sure you visit the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog to see the beautiful creations from the rest of our very talented design team.

Flashback Friday with Sassy Studio Designs - Beach Resort Sassy

It's Friday, So it's time for another Flashback Friday featured image over at Sassy Studio Designs.  

This week we're hitting the beach with Beach Resort Sassy;

Here's my project;
Isn't she one funky diva in that gorgeous swimsuit, and those sunglasses are awesome. She's coloured with Letraset Promarkers and a little white gel pen.
The papers were left over from another project, and were freebies with a craft mag.  I thought they made the perfect background for this summer beauty.  I love the sentiment, as here in Scotland is it very important to 'Make your own sunshine' cos it's not something we are blessed with often, lol!

Are you afraid of Big Bad?

Good Morning All, It's time for me to share another project with you featuring an image from Sweet Pea Stamps.  Today I'm showcasing one of my favourite images, I've been wanting to colour this image for months, and it has finally got to the top of my list.  It's called Big Bad by Charmaine Flannery;

I love this image, and I love the character in it, It is hard to figure out Who is Big Bad? Is it the Wolf or Red Riding Hood; personally I think Red Riding Hood looks the most menacing!  Here's a close up;
I used patterned papers from Volume 3 of Joanna Sheens Paper Collection Pads.  They are just perfect for this image. To embellish my card I added a couple of gem swirls and some love red organza ribbon.

If you like this image then you need to check out the rest of Charmaine's beautiful images, some of which are available in both Rubber and Digital Formats.

That's all from me for now, don't forget to visit the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog to see all the beautiful creations from the rest of the design team, there is lots to inspire you.

Fun in the Sun with Sassy Studio Designs and Passion for Promarkers

This week Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the latest challenge over at Passion for Promarkers, So as Guest DT for Sassy Studio Designs this month I got to play along with this fun challenge.

The challenge theme is 'Fun in the Sun'

Here's my card;
I used 'Pina Colada Pin Up' for this card, Isn't she fun, not only that but you can get her for free if your join in the Progressive Challenge over at the Sassy Studio Designs Facebook Group.

My background papers are from one of Joanna Sheen's new paper pads, which have some wonderful papers in and are great value. 


I coloured all of my image except the glass before fussy cutting the image and adhering to my background paper.  I then coloured the glass, so I could tie it in perfectly to the background image, and try and create the illusion of transparency in the drink.  I think it worked quite well.  My image is coloured with Letraset Tria and Promarkers with the addition of a little white pen for highlights.
I used Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers for my sentiment.

That's all from me for now, 
Hope your having some Fun in the Sun
Bye for now

You've got mail!

Good Morning All, Today I'd like to share with you a project using a beautiful image from Sweet Pea Stamps

 It's called Love Letter by Holly Durr, here's my card;
Isn't she beautiful!  I had so much fun colouring her with my Letraset Promarkers.  I teamed her up with some papers I had in my stash, they were from a magazine, but I have no idea which one unfortunately.

For my embellishments I used some Pearl swirls from That Craft Place Ltd, along with some Satin Ribbon and a few pretty flowers. I also added a couple of strips of washi tape for a little extra detail. As a finishing touch I added some sparkle to her wings with a silver glitter pen.

If you've not seen Holly Durr's images before then you really need to hop over to the Sweet Pea Stamps Store to check out all of her images, every one of them is a beauty.  I know I've fallen in love with lots of them.

That's all from me for today, Thank you so much for visiting with me. Have a wonderful day

Flashback Friday at Sassy Studio Designs

It's Friday, So time for Flashback Friday @  Sassy Studio Designs.  Every Friday the Design Team showcase an image from the vaults and you can grab it for a discounted price!

Here's this weeks image;
Isn't she beautiful!

Here's my card featuring this gorgeous mermaid;
I made and 8 x 8 card and used patterned papers from DCWV Stack 5.  I love these papers such bright fun colours with a funky retro design, and an abstract floral pattern in places. They made me think of a lovely hot day on some tropical beach somewhere, so I figured they would go perfectly with this beautiful mermaid.

My image is coloured with Letraset Promarkers.  I decided to try a different combination for her skintone, so used Peach, Soft Peach, Blush, Baby Pink and Ivory pens.  I love how this combination turned out.  I took inspiration from my patterned papers for the colouring the rest of the mermaid.  Giving her a blue and green tail and fins contrasted with bright pink/magenta hair.

I didn't add any embellishments to this card, as I felt the patterned papers were more than decorative enough.  So it's a very simple layout, with layers of white card stock to frame the papers.

That's all from me for now, don't forget to hop over to the Sassy Studio Designs Blog to see the gorgeous creations from their amazing talented designers.
