Cupcake Sweetness

Hi everyone,

It's good to be back - you may have noticed that I've been a bit quiet for the last month or so!  I've just returned from a month overlanding in Chile and Argentina in the beautiful Patagonia area, it was absolutely amazing.  It's back to reality now though and back to work tomorrow :( 

Anyway, I would like to share my DT  Whimsie Doodles make. It's a very, very girly card from me today!  This sweet image is called Treat Lizzie. Have you seen the size of the cupcake she is holding?!  I would love one of those, I love cupcakes!  I coloured Lizzie with copics and added some glitter and glossy accents to the cupcake.

These sweet papers are from Nitwits One Birdie Lane collection.  I'm loving this colours and will definitely be using them again.

The Cutest Dragon on the Block

Hi Crafting Friends,

I hope everyone is well. Can you believe we are nearly midway through February already! Where is the time going! Chinese New Year is on the 19th of February this year so I thought I should make a New Year card. When I think of Chinese Celebrations I think of dragons, red and gold/yellow and obviously lanterns, so that is what I have gone for with my card!  This adorable Whimsie Doodles  image is only available as part of an amazing collection which you can find here. 

Whimsie Doodles Digital Stamp - New Year Dragon
Lil' Inker Designs - Stitched Rectangle Die
Simon Says Stamp - Medium Dots Stencil
Papermania Adhesive Stones - Burnt Gold
Papermania Adhesive Stones - Gold

This card is very CAS but I love the strong colours.  I created the background spotted paper with a stencil and some copics to match the colour of the image.  The sentiment comes free with the image :)  A few adhesive gems and it was done.  Nice and easy.

Thanks for looking, enjoy the rest of the week,
Hugs Ax

What's Up Ladybug?

Happy Monday, I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Today is my DT day over at Whimsie Doodles and since I know everyone loves freebies so much I decided to showcase one of the many that are available in the Whimsie Doodles Shop.  This cute little ladybug is called Hang in there. She is actually supposed to be upside down but for my card today I decided to flip the image!

Simon Says Stamp - Woodgrain Cardstock White
 Lawn Fawn Into the Woods Paper Pad
Sweet Shoppe - 10 Little Monkeys Digital Paper by Digilicous Designs

Basic Grey Candy Buttons Black
Glossy Accents

I coloured the image in with my copics and added glossy accents to her nose and some candy buttons to her spots.  I think she looks so cute!  I generated the sentiment on the computer and printed it out.  Some designer paper and die-cuts and it was done.  Another CAS card from me today, I hope you like it.

Have a great week.
