For my card today I used a Hero Arts set with the adorable cactus critters. I couldn't help myself I just had to make a card with this adorable kitty! I stamped and colored my image then added the sentiment below. Then just layered a few cardstock panels and called it done. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

SID Apr sketch - Pixie dust

Here is the April card sketch for Stick It Down! Don't forget to check out the blog to see the other creations, not to mention the sketches for scrapping!

I changed it up a little by keep the sentiment box a little smaller and using the background area for a bigger image. I was a little out of my comfort zone using so much pink and feel it may have thrown me off a bit. As an after thought I probably should have flipped the card around so that she was blowing the fairy dust off of the card... o'well. ;-)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

MLC- April card

It's time for the April Merry Little Christmas Challenge! This time I decided to use a Lawn Fawn set that my hubby got me for Christmas. Its so cute!!!

I used the greenry from the set to create a little decorative stip on the card base. Then I stamped the images and sentiment on a panel to color. I did add some sparkle to the wings... can't have a fairy Christmas card with out sparkle! ;-) 

Thanks for stopping by, can't wait to see what you share with us this month! Have a great week!

Fruitful journal page with Joy Clair

Today is a special post for Joy Clair as we are having a blog hop! We all are sharing projects using sets from Joy Clairs Color by Faith line. I chose to create another page for my faith art journal and I decided to use the set Fruit of the Spirit.

I started by stamping all the sentiment in the middle of my page before stamping the fruit. Once I was done I realized that I got a little to close with an orange to the sentiment, so I stamped it again on a separate piece of paper and rounded the corners.

Then I colored all of my fruit with Arteza watercolor markers. Once I was done coloring I added the sentiment panel to the page and lined with some gray and a thin line from a black pen. I then adhered my decorated panel to the page in the journal.
