Onto my project! Say hello to Umbrella Cinnamon – isn’t she just the best! I stamped her in Premium Dye Black Olive Ink on Xpress It Blending Cardstock. I inked up just the umbrella and stamped that on my Doodlebug red polka dot paper and fussy cut that out. For the sun I used some Doodlebug paper again and cut it out with the Spring Dies 2 from Jaded Blossom. I used the new Lucky Rainbow Sentiments and popped it with some foam to add a finishing touch to the card. I’m seriously in love with this release!

Treena Twinkles at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!

I just HAD to try out this new hair colour combo on a mermaid and the newest addition to stamp collection fit perfectly. Introducing Treena Twinkles! She has recently joined the stamp collection at Paper Creations by Mindy lol… and she’s fitting in very nicely! 
I started out stamping her on Xpress It Blending Cardstock and cutting her out with my brother Scan n Cut. I colored her and set her aside to work on my background. I learned this in one of my classes from Kit and Clowder. I coloured up my background with a couple markers. Then I swiped colorless blender over it using a cuetip. I also dipped my cuetip in the liquid and just added some spots which kind of look like bubbles. …. 
For a final touch because I love sparkles.. I spritzed it with some shimmer mist – its gorgeous in person but hard to capture on camera.

Make It Crafty Tress Joyful and Dancing

Hi everyone! I just sat down to experiment with colors and Sandy Allnock’s Hex chart and found some amazing color combos! I’ll also be providing links to the image below.
To put these cards together, I really didn’t want to go overboard with doo-dads and patterned paper as I wanted my image to stay the main focus.

Little Pixie Winged Hearts Washi Tape Card

Happy Saturday!!!! It’s time to relax from the long week, colour and create! Here is a card I created using the rubber stamp Little Pixie Winged Hearts from C.C. Designs. I could colour up these little cuties all day!!! This was super fun to create with washi tape and I certainly see more in my future! 
I took some Valentine themed washi tape and placed down at an angle. Then, I cut out the heart using the Heart Die from Jaded Blossom. I did this through the cardstock and a sheet of foam so it all lined up perfectly. I attached everything with double sided tape for a nice secure hold. My image I coloured with copics, cut out with my Scan N Cut and attached to the front.
