Little Blue Button June Release

Hello everyone! I am here with my latest project for Little Blue Button using an image from the June release! I hope it inspires you :)



For my project, I did a bit of mixed media for a change, using Gelatos with a C.C. Designs stencil and some seashells I had leftover from our wedding decor. I always love doing beach themed projects :)

Hello crafty friends! Today, I am sharing a creation that I made for the Art By MiRan DT Call & a couple of the challenges at Art By MiRan as well :) I hope you like it! I love coloring these images because they push me to challenge myself in my coloring/crafting journey!



I colored the image with my copics and cut it out with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Die. I used Bazzill cardstock in Kraft for my card base and then layered Prima and Wild Rose Studio paper on top. I accented the image with distressed butterflies from the Sizzix die.

Little Blue Button Crafty Monday: Miss Lilly Big Crown

May 11th, 2015


Little Blue Button Crafty Monday:
Miss Lilly Big Crown


Hello everyone! I am here to share my project using one of the new releases for May from Little Blue Button Stamps called "Miss Lilly Big Crown". I hope you like my project!


For today's project, I colored the image in my copics. I used some yellow wink of stella on her crown, but you can't really tell from the picture. I distressed around her with an ink blender in Distress Ink "Tattered Rose". I also distressed the edges of the papers I used. Then I added some trim and a WOC flower, along with a few sprays.

The Paper Nest Dolls Guest Designer: "Buckets of Love" !

May 4th, 2015


The Paper Nest Dolls Guest Designer:
"Buckets of Love"

Hello everyone! Today, I'm here with a Guest Designer post for The Paper Nest Dolls! I'm so honored to be selected as the Guest Designer for May :) Anyway, I hope you like the card!



I colored the image with my copics and use a Lawn Fawn die to cut out the frame around her. I will have my copic color combos listed below as I can actually remember what I used for once, haha! I also used some die cuts from a Prima die and tucked those behind her. I used some purple rosette trim from my stash as well as a purple paper flower. I also added some pink and cream colored pearls to accent her. The card base is Bazzill Kraft Cardstock and I added some Santoro Mirabelle paper on top of that. The Prima die cuts were cut from some of the Santoro/Docrafts Gorjuss paper from last year's line :)
