Crisalis Release

Hey there, everybody!
Today Crafter's Companion is releasing another new line
to their EZMount stamp set arsenal. 
This one is called Crisalis by artist Christine Haworth.
It includes six beautifully detailed images.

I chose to use this one called A Morning Stroll.

Since she is dressed in so many layers,
I tried to echo that with my papers and ribbon,
choosing patterns and textures that I thought 
would compliment each other.

I hope you like it!

Head over to Crafter's Companion to see the full line.

Have a great day!

Lawnscaping Challenge #52

Hello, hello!

We are being sponsored by the wonderfully amazing Lawn Fawn!

They've generously donated a free stamp set of the winner's choice!
And just in time for release week!
Have you seen all the amazing projects over at the Lawn Fawn blog?
Seriously mind blowing! So much talent! Such awesome product!

And speaking of their awesome product,
I recently got to work with one of the brand-new stamp sets,
Happy Easter! And I just had to use it on my card for this challenge.

I created a fun little garden scene for my bunnies,
and used a sentiment from Critters Down Under.
It's meant to go with the kangaroo stamp, 
but it works perfect for these bunnies as well.
I borrowed the carrot image from Hoppy Halloween.

See, this is what I love about Lawn Fawn.
Their images are so versatile and work so well together.

Please head over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog
and check out the rest of the amazing DT projects --
A few others are sneaking some of the new releases as well!
While you're there, check out the details on how to play along.
We'd love to see you there!

Have a great day!

Where Flowers Bloom

Hey, y'all! Happy weekend!
I'm in the midst of a four day weekend myself --
or should I say, my boys are. ;)
Their vacations don't exactly translate into a vacation for me,
but I was able to squeeze in a little crafty time yesterday.

I made a card for the current Crafter's Companion Challenge.
The theme is: Love Is In The Air. 
So I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try out my new
I colored this cutie in with my Spectrum Noirs

I hope you like it!

And while I assembled the card, I decided to film a video.
Watch here, or on YouTube in HD.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Because You're Special

Happy Valentine's Day, everybody!
Hope you're feelin' the love. :)

Today I thought I'd share this little cutie 
from the brand new Angelica & Friends 
EZ Mount stamp line at Crafter's Companion.
Her name is Eleanor and I had so much fun bringing her to life
with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

I also added some DCWV paper,
a paper heart doily, and a few floral embellishments,
along with some stickles on her tutu, 
because every ballerina needs some glitter!

I hope y'all like her and that you have an amazing day!

Thanks for poppin' in!

Want a peek of what you could win?

So sweet, right?
And here's my card:

The first thing I did was choose my background paper,
which was from the Making Memories Children At Play 6x6,
then I colored sweet Miss Angelica Fairy
with Spectrum Noir markers to match.
I die cut her with a Spellbinders circle die,
then left the paper in the die and sponged the edges
with Tumbled Glass Distress ink to give it a blue halo of sky.

I adhered my paper to the card, and added two thin strips of 
yellow patterned paper, which I also colored with Speccies
to tone down the brightness just a bit.
Added my image, a die cut flower, one of the sentiments from the set,
 and a few gems and pronounced her ready for the hop!

Here is the full list of participants -- 
please hop along and check out the rest of the amazing projects
