Happy Easter

God's Blessings to everyone.

     The following designs I made from: Imagine that digi's by Kris. They have the cutests digi stamps, there are so many that I like I want them all.

     I kept these fairly simple and colored with prisma color pencils. The back ground paper is also made by Imagine that digi's by Kris. I wanted the design and the paper to shine. There so cute on there own. I hope you enjoy these.

Happy February Everyone!!!

     I've been so busy this month and finally had the time to do some crafting. I decided I wanted to challenge myself with something new so I decided to make a mini album.

     This album was so much fun to do, as this was the first one I've done. I had a lot of new things to learn and some old ones that needed to be refreshed, like my math skills lol.

As this is a gift for someone who loves Mickey what better subject could one have. So Mickey it was!

I hope you enjoy what I have made!


    Over all I was pleased for a first time.  Do I think it's perfect probably not. lol  I'll just do that much better next time.  I love a challenge and a new adventure. Till next time -

January 28, 2016 

     I just love to recycle an today's card is made completely from scraps an a free rose stamp that  was from a magazine I got a year ago.

I made several layers for both the card and the rose.  The rose was stamped an embossed on plain cardstock an water colored with distress markers being careful to not over saturate the paper with water.  An then trying something new for me I put sentiment on black cardstock embossed in white which I think added to card. I hope you all like this.

January First Blog

     So excited to do my first blog and what better way then to start it with a card made from a digi stamp from "Imagine That Digi's by Kris"
This card was made for a Hummingbird challenge in a card group. I so enjoyed coloring the humming bird an fuchsia.

Materials used:
Digi stamp by Imagine That Digi's by Kris
Prisma color pencils
Blue distress ink pad
plain stamp block
water pen
Decorative Blossom Corners, By Heartfelt Creations

     First thing you need to do is get a design an print it out. I used cardstock for my design normally you would want to use watercolor paper but since I used little water cardstock was fine. When it was printed out I trimmed it to size I wanted, nothing like coloring a whole design to trim it to size only to cut wrong an mess it up. I learned the hard way lol.
     My next step I smooched the distress ink on a ink stamp block an watered it to make it not as intense. Going around outer edges leaving ink brighter an drawing out to be lighter an going around to help image stand out an not just hang in the air.
     Color is very simple, I used prisma color pencils I love how creamy they are an how well they blend.  I'm by no means a expert but starting with light layers of color an pressing harder on following layers helps you to blend your colors even better. I do most of my blending with the different shades I used and the white color pencils plus there is a blending pencil.
     When finished arrange on cardstock the way you choose.  I placed mine on pink cardstock with the Two Decorative Corners an added a ribbon.
     I so loved this design by "Imagine That Digi's by Kris" an plan to do many more!
