Julie Nutting lovelies

I've started taking monthly classes from She Scrapbooks, a local store here in my area.
I am so in love with these dolls and I love the ideas I get from the classes

This is fabulous, giving her tights and long sleeves! ha, genius!

These are so pretty too, same doll but completely different look right?  SO amazing

The words are from the Tim Holtz stickers.

Wiggle snail card

 I think I might have ruined this dude, I thought the extra piece for his face would add to the dimension but I think it makes him look funny....what do you think?  
It's still a really cute image, I really like the little dots on the shell.
I used scraps I had laying on my desk to add to the card, love when that works out.  The embellishments are cute wooden buttons I've had for ages.
And I mounted the snail on an action wobble, so fun.

I'm adding this card to the spring action wobble challenge

Clean and simple challenge

 Clean and simple, is a hard card to make for me, I do like how it turned out though
I used my copics to color him then painted over his body with pearl paint so he's got a little shimmer.
He's mounted on an action wobble too.
 Inside is the simple cute phrase.
I hope you will join us in the challenge this week.

Happy Easter from Creative Kuts

How fabulous is this guy?  I am SO in love, he won my heart! lol
too, too cute, I tell ya
 Seriously, have you seen anything cuter? 
 Shaped cards are so fun, I love his twine whiskers.

This dude is awesome!! He's huge!  That's a good sized egg in his basket. I really love his big feet and happy face.
 I used white ink for his edges, I really think it makes him look softer and more fluffy.
 For the back, I cut an extra head (mirror imaging it) to cover his ear placement and the back of the handle.
 Look at that fluffy tail! lol

adding this post for the Glitter and Sparkle Easter challenge

Happy birthday stand up card

Image of *New* Distressed Lace
This is one of those projects that worked out perfectly from start to finish! 
No cutting issues and everything matches and I used papers from 2 different stacks.

 I added the beautiful lace to the top then added a hologram sequin.  I found them in the kid's craft section at Joann's, they are really neat.
 I used my black gel pen to write and doodle and to also color the butterfly's body.

FBD Floral beauty

Isn't Cierra beautiful?  I love her hair and her sweet necklace the most.
I colored her using colored pencils, she was cut out using the print and cut feature with my Cameo.  I'm so spoiled, I rarely fussy cut anything these days.
Since she's so beautiful she needed an equally gorgeous embellishment.  I picked one of my gorgeous beaded stick pins from Pinque Peacock and I love the paper roses from Adele Garcia 
Pretty right?  I'm still not great with coloring hair but I'm working on it.
Love the garden of roses.

Spring is here

I've melted the pony beads and now the Perler beads, what better way to use those crazy beads that seem to multiply in craft supplies.
I used  my toaster oven, 400 degrees for about 20 or 25 minutes.
Not all consistent but I kept them all, still cool
Spring Medley
So for Earth day, I'm sharing this beautiful spring card!
This is the From the Heart progressive challenge.
I used some of my new enamel dots on the corners
I used my colored pencils to color the images.

Easter card collage

I tried my hand at a bit of collage, I used my Cameo to add the patterns to the egg and planned to color the flower myself with my copic markers.  Well, I left it lay on my desk a little too long and my 4 year old decided she was going to color it in herself.
After I fussed at her for using things on my desk with out asking I realized she didn't do such a bad job after all for her age.  So I chose to use it and make this the Easter card for my parents.  I went ahead with my original plan of doing a collage type design.
I added the darker pink the the edges of the petals and added the glitter glue.  She colored so hard with the pencils it was impossible to add much shading.
The egg and flowers at the bottom are stickers I found in the Dollar Tree, I was shocked to find such nice stickers there.
I tied a bow with lace and added a heart gem.
I hope you like our creation, thanks for stopping by.

Washi challenge

I'm trying my hand at a new style for me.  I love that shaby chic collage look, I'm not great at it but I like how this card turned out.  I joined a group on face book and the challenge was to use washi tape.  Since I have a ton and rarely use it, I jumped in.   I like the bright pops against the muted colors.
what do you think?  How did I do?

I'm going to add this to the Craftin Desert Diva's challenge as well
