Birthday Bunny

Isn't this bunny the sweetest? It's from a long retired SU set called New Little Someone. I haven't stamped with it in quite some time, but a coworker asked me for a card for a 1 year old little girl and in looking over my stamps I was reminded of it. I decided to color the bunny with water color crayons and just blend a little with my finger with the exception of the yellow bow which I colored in with a blender pen. The bottoms of his feet are covered with flocking and the ribbon is covered with Crystal Effects for some fun dimension and texture. My colors are So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, and Crumb Cake. Lastly, the sentiment is from the Enjoy the Ride set by Papertrey Ink.

Happy Japanese Doll

This little Japanese Doll from Hero Arts is just too cute! and there's even two more in the set. I embossed her and then colored her with SU watercolor pencils. I pulled my colors from this piece of design paper from the Plumeria collection by Basic Grey and they are Always Artichoke, Orchid Opulence and some Only Orange and Pumpkin blended together. And last but not least, the sentiment is from Good Fortune by MFT.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the last few weeks of summer!

Burlap Wedding Quote

I created this card for a friend's recent wedding. I pulled out some design paper from my favorite shabby chic collection, Lilac House by Fancy Pants, to start with and layered it on a piece of River Rock for my base. Then I added a strip of burlap and then the sentiment that I stamped in Razzleberry and die cut. Lastly, I added a touch of elegance with the three pearls that underscore my focal point.
