What's Cookin' Good Lookin?

I am so excited to share this week's card using The Rubber Cafe's Now We're Cookin' Creative Cafe Kit!

Did you see what I did?  I combined the skirt sticker included in the kit with the girl image from the stamp set!  How stinkin' cute is that?   I placed the sticker on a piece of acetate that I rescued from the trash and then applied Scrap Happy Sheer Glue to the back of the acetate with the Tiny Detailer Kit.  I used You're So Fine Glitters in Copper, Limeade Green and Canadian Blue.

I colored the rest of my image with Copic Markers and used various papers in the kit to finish my card.

My little lady and the circle element are popped up on Kool Tak foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my project!

A Little bit of Spring....before Winter Hits!

It is Prickley Pear Monday...and today I felt like basing my card around a Lilla Rose Flexi Clip!

This clip is called Princess Tiara.  The beads on this clip have a fun iridescent touch to them.

For this card used a background that I made with HoneyPop paper.  The butterfly is die cut from a piece of polished stone paper.  Yep, me not throwing away my scraps again!    I colored the images with Copic markers.  Put it all together and you have a fun feminine birthday card!

Now We're Cookin with The Rubber Cafe

It's time to share another card featuring The Rubber Cafe's Now We're Cooking Creative Cafe Kit!

I'm sort of the *glitter girl* at The Rubber Cafe', when I saw the fun stickers included in the kit I couldn't decide whether I should glitter them or paper piece them!  For this card you get both!  I placed the sticker on a piece of acetate from some packaging that always seems to be coming home from shopping expeditions.  I glittered the blue and then put paper under the acetate piece for a paper pieced effect.

I popped all of the elements up on foam tape and added a few pearls from the kit that also are the perfect embellishment. 

Thanks so much for taking a peek!

All Occasion Card Duo

Nobody wants to send out a Get Well card...but if you have a need, this is a cute image and sentiment from Inky Antics. The image is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. 
And what a fun little birthday card.  The designer paper is some from a JoAnn Fabrics stash I think, just love the playful dots/grid with this image.

Love Made Visible...

Yay!  It is time to share the new Creative Cafe Kit of the Month...Now We're Cookin!  For my card I used the Whipped Up stamp set that is included in the kit.  I used the utensil stamp to create a border along the bottom of my card.

The apron is a sticker that is included in the set and is perfect for paper piecing!  I attached the apron sticker to one paper and the pocket to another and then cut them out and assembled them as shown.

The sentiment is stamped on a piece of coordinating designer paper and cut to a banner shape.  It is attached to the card with foam tape.

The seam binding and spoon charm also are included in the kit and are a perfect embellishment for this card. 

I did use black cardstock for my card and it is not included in the kit.  You could easily use one of the beautiful cardstocks enclosed.  I was involved with a funeral this week and my mind was a little scattered when I was making this card. 

Thanks so much for taking a peek!  These images are super fun for the season when homemade goodies are passed around among friends!

Spica Meetz Zen

Today's card is a fun one that features Lasting Impressions stencils and some Zentangle patterns.  I decided to color the images this time with Spica Glitter pens!  I also traced the dotted lines on the designer paper from my scrap bin with the purple Spica pen.  Very fun and quirky!!  I'm pretending that it's not sleet hitting my window this afternoon!

Celebrate the Season Card Trio

I have some clean and simple cards to share with you today featuring Inky Antics images.   I paired them up with a wintery embossing folder that has been run on designer paper and then sanded in this instance.  The image itself has been colored and run through a Xyron sticker machine and then was colored in Crystal Glitter, so the whole scene just shines.  I added a touch of distressing on the sentiment piece.
This card is based on some fabulous coated paper that has been embossed.  The image again has been run through the Xyron and glittered.
And one more sweet image all done up fancy for winter.  Love the Candi Dot on the snowflake punch with just a touch of silver.
