Bright bonjour

I love Newton's Nook stamps!  I used the Newton Dreams of Paris stamp set for this card.  I created this card with the idea that Newton was flying over a sunset lit landscape.  The paper comes from two old 6x6 packs, I cut the clouds out on my Cameo and the hills with my Lawn Fawn die set.  This card was coloured with Pro-markers.

P.S. The twine is from Newton's Nook: every time I made a order they wrapped my order in orange twine!  :)

Always got your back - Dreamerland Crafts Stamps

I love Dreamerland Crafts.  Their sweet images always come out looking great.  This stamp set is called Always Got Your Back.  I wanted an edgy look for this card so I used a Studio Calico chevron stencil with embossing paste, on watercolour paper and then painted between the paste when it was dry.  The doily is from MFT.  I watercoloured the sweet Dreamerland Crafts image with great care for bright youthful exuberance.  The sentiment is from an old stamp set, and the gems add a bit of sparkle!

Loose Moose

I made this card with three types of patterned paper (the burgundy is patterned too).  The moose, sentiment and hill die are from Lawn Fawn.  The other die cuts are from my Cameo.  I coloured it with Pro-markers and the hearts are from the dollar store (a gift from my Mom!).  The gems add a bit of sparkle!  

I am entering this in the SSS Monday Challenge: Home Sweet Home.  The reason?  I'm Canadian.  The moose is a real Canadian symbol and Canada is my home.  

P.S.  We are celebrating a big birthday this year (150!!).  We're still very young.  :)

Please Feed the Bears

Made with an old MFT Fred Bear set.  The blue die cut and clouds are from my Cameo and hills are Lawn Fawn. 

This card is very timely.  Two days ago I saw a mama bear and a little itty bitty baby bear in my neighbors yard (we get bears all the time)!  I've never seen a cub that small.  It was only a few weeks old.  So cute!

PS Don't worry.  I would NOT feed the bears.  (Then they have to be shot for getting to comfortable with humans.)

Lawn Fawn Mother's Day Card

Made with Lawn Fawn's Critters Under the Sea stamp set and many other Lawn Fawn sets.  The waves are from Lawn Fawn.  The rectangle and the anchor stamps are SSS.  I coloured this card with Promarkers.  

I also made my Mom a cute little purse bag with my Cameo only to discover it was way way too small to fit any of her gift (from the Body Shop)!  Now I know for next time!! :)

Black and White Christmas Card plus Dreamerland Crafts Card

Getting a jump on the holiday season.  Watercolour bkg with distress inks and water splashes.  (The water splashes work well to create the moon.)  I used Lawn Fawn's Winter Sparrows stamp set.  First, I created the background; then I stamped the sparrows and then coloured them in with a black pen.  The hills are from a Lawn Fawn die set. 

I used Dreamerland Crafts' Happiness Is stamp for this watercolour card.  I wanted it to be a bit eccentric so I used a bright purple for the dress and bright green for the background.  I love this stamp!  Its rubber so it will last a lifetime or more!  The sentiment is from a MFT stamp set.  Both the background and the stamped image are on watercolour paper.
