I used the sweet HG Classy today - isn't she adorable?  Love her frilly dress and gloves.  And then there's that cute little hat!  What's not to love about this little cutie?  I colored her with copics and simply added a bow for embellishment.

Love

Good evening friends.  I was looking through some of my cards and realized I had not posted this card ... so I thought I'd pop on here quickly and share it. 



I started with a piece of watercolor paper and diecut the heart shape.  Then I thought I'd try my hand at adding some color with water and distress inks.  I like the way it turned out.  The love diecut is from SugarPea Designs' Sugarcuts - Heart Journal Card.  I cut it out several times and glued the layers together.  I really like to layer my word diecuts like this as I think it really makes them "stand out" more than just using one layer, if that makes sense lol!  The sentiment is from the Happy Mail clear stamp set.  Then I just added some sequins and adhered it to a bright pink card base.  There you have it ... a fairy quick and easy card!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you're having a great weekend.

Hugs, Anita

Your Next Stamp - February Feature Day



Good morning everyone!  Today is Feature Day over on the Your Next Stamp Blog, which means that the team is sharing some new samples featuring the YNS stamps and dies. 




I used the Sprinkles - Happy Easter clear stamp set and the coordinating Sprinkles - Happy Easter Die Set to make my card today.  This is a new set that is available in the YNS Store now!  I absolutely adore this little bunny and his carrot car - it's sooo cute!!!  I also used the Spring/Summer Scene Die set to cut the hills, flower stems, tree and the cloud.  I used the Whatknot Seasons Die to cut the sun and then added a little button to it.  Be sure to check out the other stamps in this set in the photo below.  I love this stamp set and know I'll be reaching for this set often.

Be sure to stop by the Your Next Stamp Blog to see what the rest of the DT is sharing today.  If you leave a comment on the YNS Blog you may be the lucky winner of a stamp set of your choice!

Anyas, Oddies, and Others! Linky Party


 

Good morning everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful week.  Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Anyas, Oddies, and Others! Linky Party.



I used Snuggle from The Greeting Farm on my card today.  This image is retired but there are tons of other cuties available in their shop!  I colored her with copics and added a sentiment from Your Next Stamp.  The challenge for TGF stamps this month are the color purple, fussy cutting, plain colored paper and/or stickers.  You only need to include one of the options on your entry.  I hope you find some time to link up to the Anyas, Oddies, and Others!
