The froggy on the lilly pad is just .. cool...for summer. From Unity Leap for Life available:  I used Copics on the frog.. Martha Stewart ink pads on the butterflies, firefly & cloud & reeds I guess they are at the bottom...I don't know if it shows in the pic, but there's a cool pattern in all except the frog. Thanks. Hope this makes you think of lazy summer days which are coming really fast it seems.

Wet Suits

It's getting to be that time of year..Wet bathing suits, sand,shells & dripping ice cream cones. This is from the June 2011 KOM" ALL SMILES" available
I colored, cut & pieced the whole shebang, & used brown twine as a clothesline.I cut out some shells from American Crafts Heat Wave paper. It made me smile so I decided to share..  (There's also a whopping ice cream cone in this kit & some fireflies .) I hope you smile & think of all the wet things coming soon!

Flowers & Dreams

I used ippity  You Deserve stamps. You need a chick for this, Mine is Noelle.Here's link for Unity: IPK 136 is the stamp set. I stamped them with memento. I colored with my copics, Put the front  through the sticker maker, add glitter & we have bling! Before I added the bling I put the backs of most through the sticker maker (without taking the "sticky" off the front)  & glued it to the card. Popped one up.I love these flowers they're really pretty & the corners are cute also. One of my favorite Ippity sets.Thanks , Enjoy!

It's Spring!

These 2 started out pretty much the same cat Trouble..(yes, that's her name & what she does walked all over one of the papers with muddy paws. So the first picture I had to cut out the little girl & paper piece her & restamp the background on green paper.After all that blending I did with copics trying to make green grass too.
 I used Phyllis Harris Just Breathe available: cut & pieced the little girl,
I used memento ink, copics & gelly roll.The top one the background is green bazzill on top of purple bazzil paper & purple thread & a butterfly pin from Websters'. Popups & sigh.

The bottom one. I colored the background with copics trying to make it look like grass ( my first time trying to blend this much area.I also did the dress & flowers with copics. just a bit of gelly roll on the flowers.My daughter had bought some embroidery thread & it split on her so I used the threads on the side for a bit of sparkle.A few staples to hold it all down. Hope you enjoy it. I ad fun with this one. Thanks

Since I usually prestamp more than one image I figured I'd start making 2 cards with 1 stamp.. so here are 2 with the Unity SMAK kit March 2012 available here : The first image I used watercolr pencils memento ink &a flower from K& co.

The bottom I used copics & watercoler pencils on the butterflies,then i ran them through xyron sticker maker ink side down & added clear glitter.I used distress inks in, blue jean to stamp & spiced marmalade in the background . My daughter got me the ribbon tool from memory makers & I put some Michaels' navy blue ribbon , using the "shoelace tool". Enjoy..
