Scrapper's Delight Inspirational Post

Good Morning Crafty peeps, hope your Thursday is off to a great start.  Mine started on the right track, I have my cup of Starbucks and I am rocking and rolling.  I have a inspirational post for you today using the cute Honey Sweet Heart from Scrapper's Delight which you can pick right now in the shop for $1.50.

This is a digi-image, so I printed her out on copic x-press it blend card stock.  I colored her with copics and cut her out using my brother scan and cut 2.   I created a A2 card and used the hearts conversation embossing folder by Taylored Expressions.  I die cut a circle in the middle and added the image.  I added the die cut word Loved which is also from Taylored Expressions to the bottom of the card.  I then added die cut conversation hearts around the image.  I decided at the last minute to add the pearls around her and love the way this card turned out.

Hello my friends, Happy Friday!!! The weekend is almost here and its time to get crafty.   Today I am over on the Papernest Dolls blog sharing a card using the new Love Struck Emma  from Papernest Dolls. I love creating projects for Valentines and  Love Struck Emma  was released in the shop at the perfect time.  

I have a lot of valentines paper that I accumulated over the years and decided to pull some of it out to create this card.  I colored love struck emma using copics with the colors listed below.  I die cut two stitched hearts and added them to the card.  I found a burlap heart in my stash and thought it would be perfect for this card.  I added some flowers from wild orchid crafts and the sentiment is from some die cuts I had in my stash.

Valentines Card

Hello crafty friends, I wanted to share a quick card with you today using The Greeting Farm Joy stamp set.  This stamp set was sent last month as apart of The Greeting Farm super secret stamp club.  I totally forgot about this stamp set as it was buried under other stamps on my desk.  I am pretty sure we have all been there where you place something on your desk and then it gets buried under other goodies.  Well I was excited to find her, it was like Christmas all over again. Since I am in the valentines making mood,  I decided to make a valentine's card using this cute stamp.

I stamped the image out on copic x-press it blend card stock using my favorite things hybrid black ink.  I used my copics to color her up and die cut her out using a lawn fawn stackable circle die.   I layered a fancy scalloped circle die cut from Lawn Fawn behind her to give her some additional detail.  I used designer papers that I bought  from my local craft store.

 Copic Colors Used:
Skin: E13, 11, 21, 000
Hair: E59, 37, 33, 31
Red: R59, 29, 24
White Gel pen 

Well that's all I have for now, I would appreciate it if you leave a comment.  Let me know what you think about the card.   Make sure you stop by tomorrow as I will have another card share for you.  Have a happy crafty day!

Scrapper's Delight Thrifty Thursday

I wanted to create a scene where she was floating on the water.  I decided to use watercolor pencils I had in my stash and created the water.  This was my first time doing this and I actually loved the way it turned out.  Sometimes you just have to step outside of your comfort zone and just do it.  I colored the fairy and lilly pad using my copics.  My favorite color is purple so I had to make this card using my favorite color.  I die-cut the image out using the wonky stitched squares from MFT.    The frame of the card is cut out using my spellbinders dies.  I die cut the happy word  from La La Land Crafts and added it to the side of the image.
