Waiting for Spring…An Easter Card

Happy Friday! It is still a frigidly cold little spot on Earth and I am waiting for a hint of Spring. In fact, more than a hint if I were to be honest :)

So, I pulled out one of my favorite older Magnolia stamps: Bunny Tilda, and made an Easter card.  I filmed a video but haven’t had the chance to edit it. Look for that to post next week.

This card is for Stamp & Create with Magnolia Challenge. The theme this time around is “Frame It”.  I created the frame using assorted dies and die plates. To decorate the front, I used some gemstones and lovely Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. These truly are my favorite flowers! I have a variety of sizes, shapes and flower varieties in my stash!

Spring Fairies

Happy Monday! After a lovely, warm week-end, we are back to frigid temperatures once again. The boys took the opportunity to ski and enjoy the outdoors. I am still not feeling great and so I stayed home and rested! I was able to create a new card using one of Whimsy’s Wee stamps: Dyanne. So, so pretty. I love any image that has sweet fairy wings :)

After coloring the image with copic markers, I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the wings and to the gems in her crown. I then masked the image and airbrushed in the background. I just used the same markers I had used to color her in. The sentiment is from a MFT set.

Here is what is happening at Stamp and Create this week!

Flower Fairies

Happy Wednesday morning! It has been way too long since I last posted. Like many of you, the flu hit our home and it hit hard. I was totally knocked off my feet for almost 2 weeks. I cannot remember the last time I was so incapacitated. I am started to get my energy back but I am not 100% yet. It has been such a long time since I did any crafting…….I am excited to get back into the swing of things.

Here is a little something that I made back in January but I didn’t post because the stamps were out of stock. Well, they are happily back in stock now so I can share it with you :)

DSC_8653 copy

I used one of the images from the Flower Fairies set from Wee Stamps. Such a sweet set and I know that I will be getting the second image in the set inked up soon. I created a mini-card. I really like this size. I stamped the image inside along with a sentiment from a SSS set. I even made a matching envelope :)

Stamp and Create February Challenge

Happy Tuesday my friends! Sorry that it has been uber quiet here. I spent a lot of January compelled to organize and purge. Thanks to a new blog I discovered: Clean and Scentsible.  I have been spending more time doing this than crafting in my studio. I also have two quilts in the works and I have been spending my very minimal quiet time on those. I have been posting some pictures on Instagram if you want to see what I have been up to. On top of that, I have a poor kiddo at home who has a terrible cold and cough. I know that you all know what I mean.

I do have a card for this month’s February Stamp and Create Challenge:

Using Beep, beep, I love you from Whiff of Joy
(Whiff of Joy stamps are 60% off)

The February Challenge is:

All You Need is Love
******

On random participant will win a $25 Gift Certificate to Stamp and Create

Thanks for swinging by!

Stamp and Create ~ Medieval Scene

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great week-end. It is mid-terms this week for my two eldest, so the family did not do very much as the boys were studying and finishing up essays. I took the opportunity to work on some sewing and quilting projects. I do love the whole process. From cutting to piecing to sewing and hoping that all those points come together perfectly :)

Here is my card for Stamp and Create this week. Can you tell that I have been binge watching “Reign”. The whole first season came available for us to watch on Crave TV (not sure if this is limited to Quebec or not). Anyway, I think that it influenced my stamp choice :)

DSC_8674 copy

I created this scene by masking together images from Whiff of Joy's Charlotte and Charlie Collection. I used Queen Charlotte, Knight Charlie, and Charlotte's throne. The coat of arms is also from the collection but is no longer in stock at Stamp and Create. The background was created using my Copic ABS system. Love, love the way it turned out.

Here is the latest news over at Stamp and Create this week:

The new Magnolia Lovely Duo Collection is now in stock...

Thanks for swinging by and have a great rest of the day :)
