Cute And Cuddly!

We are up to challenge #4 at Hooked On Craft Challenges and the theme of the challenge is "cute and cuddly". Now I just love all things cute and cuddly so this was a fun challenge for me! I thought I would have a go at making a 'stair' card. I have used a gorgeous set of bear stamps from Hooked On Craft and I have coloured them with copics and added a touch of glossy accents. My large butterfly and flowers are also from Hooked On Craft and I have spritzed them with glimmer mist (as always!!!) and added some stickles too.

Please join us at Hooked On Craft Challenges for the latest challenge. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

Ahoy Mateys!

When I saw this cute little pirate stamp I knew I just had to have him! He is "Brave Captain" by Nellie Snellen and I think he is just so sweet. I have coloured him with copics and chalk and added bling around him as his 'treasure'. I recently bought a gorgoeus paper stack full of awesome pirate themed papers so I have used them in this card too. Ahoy me hearty!

Fairys And Unicorns!

Here is another card I have made featuring a gorgeous stamp deisgned by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps called "Wee Snippet and Mystic". Isn't she just gorgeous? I have a number of Crissy's stamps now and I just love them. I have coloured her with copics and added glossy accents and glitter. On my flowers and rose buds I put some glossy accents on them and then dipped them in glitter so they are nice and sparkly. My cute little butterfly trinket pin is from Hooked On Craft. I have also used glitter paper, bling and pearls.

Let me know what you think, I love hearing from you guys!
