Stamping Fun ...

Hello Everyone!  The sun is shining again today in NE Ohio and it is certainly helping to lift my spirits.  So much so that I have FOUR (4) creations to share with you.  Please bear with me ... I'll try to be brief!!

First is my creation for today's Crafty Secrets SCS Forum Challenge hosted by Lori Lynn.  Today we are doing "crafty blocking" ... similar to color blocking but using Crafty Secrets images instead!  Fun idea, huh!!!

The Crafty Secrets used on this creation are the "Flowers" Cotton Scraps main image and the stamped images are from the "Garden Girls" set.  I've used Prismacolor markers to color in, Prima flowers, gold Pilot marker for edging and Creative Memories fine tip black marker for the faux stitching.

Still working on a few Easel Easter cards for my mother, I decided to use this beautiful "Lily Bouquet" from my friend Teri Sherman's, Delicious Doodles digi store.  
She is such a talented lady ... please pop over to her store and check out her digis ... I'm sure you'll find something you can't live without!!  Here are the items used on this creation:  Stamps:  Stampabilities, Impression Obsession ... Papers:  Whisper White, Lavendar Lace, Sandylion designer paper ... Ink:  Versafine Black ... Accessories:  Delicious Doodles image, Prismacolor markers, Offray satin ribbon, Basic Grey Opaline pearls, Making Memories floral eyelets, Nestabilities


The next two creations are images from "Creation by Penny".  The Happy Happy card utilizes Penny's  "Mouse" image and the Easter easel card utilizes Penny's "birdie" image.  Although, I turned the birdie into a chickie!  Hope she doesn't mind!! LOL!!

The designer paper on the Happy Happy card is by DCWV Nana's Baby Girl pack along with Whisper White & Basic Black.  I've used a light grey Prismacolor marker for my coloring and Nestabilities classic & scallop ovals to back this cute image!  The SU photo corner punch was used for my corner embellishments.  Pretty easy, peasy huh!!

Another easel card here and this chickie (birdie) is watching over these little bunnies to keep them safe!!  The background paper is Basic Grey Two Scoops dp.  The combination of Gelly Roll Glaze & Stardust pens were used for my coloring, as well as Prismacolor markers.  

Stamps used are from Paper Inspiration, The Stamp Pad Co., Stampendous & of course, Penny's digis.

If you are still with me, I appreciate you taking the time and indulging me with your attention!!  Hey, I tried to keep it "short" ... this is as short as I get!  LOL!!  Hope you are having a great day and I hope you stop back to see me again real soon!  

I see I have over "500" posts on my Google Reader I need to address!  Yikes ... I'm so behind!!  Enjoy your day!!!
