 I got some acetate pictures and some glitter film.
I used my scallop ovals to cut them out and layer them.
I love the subtle sparkle and shine.

Dear to my heart

This was a card I found in the Cricut Craft room.
I just got the stylus and pen holder so I was excited to try this one.
It's not perfect but I love the colors.

 The little heart on the envelope holds it closed

Cute love bear

 This is a Valentine bag I made using a freebie from Craftin Desert Diva's from their most recent release. I used a digital paper to print the bag and let my Cameo cut it out.  
Very simple and really cute!

Classy gal

I finally got back into the progressive challenge with Simply Betty on her facebook fan page.
It's been ages, I missed it.

 I used my pencils and gamsol to color and blend, adding some crystal effects in places like the mirror, her eyes and brooch as well as the little circles beside the mirror.

Cute crab

Design Team

Today I'm using the little crab and taking a trip to the beach!

I created the background using digital papers then printed and cut out my pieces.
I love adding real shells to beach cards.

This card I think will be the Father's day card I give my dad.
I love when ideas come together just right.

Heart center piece

 This is a file from Dreaming Tree.
It's so cool!  And it's huge!  It takes a lot of paper but it's so worth it!
I want to try it on a smaller scale for a tea light size candle, I think that would be really cute.

Meowy Christmas

Today I am using the Christmas lights kitty stamp.
You can find the Cat's meow stamp here ,
and the Merry Christmas stamp here.

The challenge today is bling, my bling, is the lights and I added crystal effects for the shine.
 I also sprayed the image with shimmer mist so the whole kitty sparkles.

We have a new website, so be sure to click the links above and have a look!

I'm adding this to the scraps challenge at Hiding in my craft room because both of the decorative paper came from my stash pile.

I colored the kitty with pencils and blended with gamsol.
The layers are all one piece using digital paper and the drop shadow effect in my SIL program.

12 months of Christmas link up

It's that time again!!  How fun are the papers this month?

Our sponsor is Scribbles Designs! I was so tickled with images we got to choose from I had to make all of them!

Optional Theme: Holiday Humour

 First up is the cute elf.  I colored him with my pencils and blended out with gamsol
I kept it simple by just adding a few gems and some flocking on his hat.

 This is "Twinkle Brrr"  makes me laugh! I love it!
So I used my pencils to color around the lights...even though he's not plugged in, hey it's art, I can stretch reality. I colored the lights with my gel pens then added crystal effects on top and to his beak and feet.  His hat has some flocking on it too.

 Now, on to Snow kisses, sigh, so sweet.
I used my tiny buttons on the snowman for his face and well, his buttons.
He's got crystal effects on him with some crystal glitter.

My cards are pretty simple, I spent a lot of time coloring.  I've realized over the years that Christmas cards are best when kept simple, cheaper to mail and since I get less than a dozen cards in return I don't want to spend a lot on postage for elaborate cards.  Is that bad of  me?
Anyway, click the badge at the top and head over to see what the rest of the team has come up with for your inspiration!

Little valentines cards

These 2 cards were made with free images.
As you've seen I've been working on creating more cards with digital elements.

Sealed with a kiss. I created my background paper with the SWAK image then layered a rectangle in pale blue and added my image.
 With some cute clay hearts and some crystal effects and glitter and you've got a great card!

This next card was made using a free set from Little Scraps of Heavens designs.
These elements are so cute together. I just love that fox!!
