It's Simple, I Love You!

Hi friends, I hope this day finds everyone doing well!

 I'm sharing a card today using Turtles in Love from Sasayaki Glitter Designs.  You can find the image HERE and the Challenge Blog for Sasayaki Glitter HERE.

The card measures just less than 6"x 6".  I used a paper pad from Crate Paper called Heart Day.  Super cute papers, lots of hearts, X's and O's and fun patterns.

I colored with copic markers and layered up all the pieces, added a little ink around the edges and a few Nuvo drops.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  I also added some decorating to the inside of the card with a white square panel, a couple strips of paper from the collection, a heart and then I cut some of the flowers out from the flower paper.  I hope you like my card and will join us at Sasayaki!

You Give me the Feels

I love mermaids and any chance I get to play with I do!  This cutie is The Mermaid #124  from Sasayaki Glitter Designs. I love how she is just squishing the stuffin out of the little octo! 

I created the background using the Waves Stencil from Simon Says Stamp and used four different distress inks to create an ombre ocean.  I used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Dusty Concord.  The enamel dots are Nuvo crystal drops in Violet Galaxy and Rhubarb Crumble.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things-Essential Sentiments. 

I colored the image with copics and added Wink of Stella to her tail and shell earring and added white get dots to the octo.  

I hope you enjoy my card and will come join us over at Sasayaki Glitter Stamps on our FB page or Challenge Blog

Goodnight Dino


Hi friends, I'm sharing my card today using this adorable image from Sasayaki Glitter Designs called Goodnight Dino, I think he is just the cutest!!  I created the background with distress inks and hand drew the cave, he looks all relaxed and comfy!

  I tend most of the time to leave my cards blank until I know what occassion and for whom they are for.  I thought for the inside of this it would be cute/funny to say something like "YOU'RE HOW OLD?"  ya know, cuz it's a dino, and they are ancient! ;)   Maybe I'll save it for my dad's birthday next year....heehee :D   

I colored the dino with copics and added some prismacolor pencils for deeper shading, I also added white dots with my white gel pen and green dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Green Apple from Tonic Studios.

Books=Happiness

When I saw this image AMY LOVES BOOKS from Sasayaki Glitter Stamps  I knew that I wanted to create a canvas, this is the biggest canvas I've worked on, it's 12" x 16" and was perfect for what I envisioned.  I enlarged the image and made two copies, cutting out the bottom three books to stack for more height.  I colored it all with copic markers and then started on the canvas.

I used Multi Medium Matte to adhere a Tim Holtz tissue wrap to the canvas, put another coat on top, and started adding paint and color.  I laid down a light grey thin coat of acyrlic paint and then added gelatos in different colors.  The alpha stencil was used with Delta Ceramcoat in Tahiti Blue randomly on the canvas.  I spattered, white, black, purple and blue paint and then got working on the quote.  I googled reading quotes and chose this one, as it really says how I feel about books and reading.....for me, reading is my bit of happiness, as is creating, so this was perfect!   I used C.C. Designs big letter dies for the word BOOKS and cut out HAPPINESS with my silhouette.  The rest of the title was used with black sticker letters from EK Success.


I love how it turned out, love the image, love that it's a little bit messy and wonky and had a ton of fun creating!!  

Check out the Sasayaki Glitter Etsy shop for lots of fun images to play with, I'm sure you'll find something to spark your creative imagination! :)

Love you.........


My card today features this darling image called A Flower for You from Sasayaki Glitter and you can find it HERE.  

I used a few different pattern papers from the Pebbles Spring Fling 6x6 paper pad, a few papers from my stash, My Favorite Things Blueprint 14 for the square dies, flower, button, leaf and border.  I also used the Out of the Box die technique on the image.  I played with frantage for the first time in....well several years.  I bought a package with different types and colors and didn't really know what to do with it or how to use it,  so, I finally got it out and figured it out!  I think I love it!! :D

Happy Fall


Hey everyone!  I'm super excited to be posting for the first time as a Design Team member for Sasayaki Glitter.

For my first inspiration card, I've used Pumpkin Elly and you can find her HERE.

I just LOVE her and the fun fall scene, this card will be going to my sister and her family as elephants are her favorite animal! 

I've used different pattern papers from my stash, some green and white twine that I've added to a couple pumpkins and the sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas called Thankful Squeaks.   I've colored the image with copics and used a black prisma pencil to deepen the shadows.

I hope you like my card, come join us on Facebook or our Challenge Blog!

Happy Birthday

hugged......

Here is my last card for the Taylored Expressions 9th birthday celebration.                                             

I played a little bit with the sketch this time, not following it exactly, I didn't realize though that I used the color combo from the sketch!!  The little owl is from the Taylored Expressions Quick Critters die and stamp set. Lots of fun and super quick and easy!
