FFF/DTT with Sitting Lovely and Giveaway Reminder!

One more week left to win a $15 voucher to my store! Remember to check out my postย hereย if you haven’t already done so ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s been a week or two since I last submitted an entry over at Splendid Stamping. This week’s theme for FFF is Birthday and DTT is color theme of red, teal and green. Beautiful colors ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve used the stamp set Sitting Cute (available in my online store!) and the birthday sentiment is from Penny Blacks’ Birthday Critter set.

The sketch I used is from Sweet Sketch Wednesdays:

Digi’s and Vellum

I really need to start using digi’s that I’ve invested on. It’s hard since you don’t physically see it when you’re choosing your stamps. But I made sure the next card I made was a digi.

This one is from The Greeting Farm Jessica. It’s also the first time I incorporated vellum to a card. It looks pretty nice I think, I’m trying to stay away from always using a white back drop but thought the background (scalloped oval) was too strong. So I added the vellum to lighten up the brown. Worked out well ๐Ÿ™‚

Shaheen
Turning 37
Loves to shop
Loves purses
Loves shoes
Loves bling
Bright colors

With a twist with my creativity, I give you….

Latte Inspired

I’ve had this cutey colored for a year now and I finally get to use it! My fave about her is the skirt.ย  I used Stickles (Cotton Candy) then applied Glossy Accents to create that epoxy look to her skirt.ย  I added rhinestones to her hair like a hair tie.

I used The Greeting Farm Flutter Anya and Spellbinders Lacey Squares, Pico Circles, Classic Circles and Big Scalloped Circles. The sentiments were from Penny Black Critter Party and the second one I’ve actually lost the packaging and don’t know which stamp set it came from ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I Want Candy II

I told you the next few cards will be from the I Want Candy digi set. So here’s the second one. Super cute!

This is the first time where I made a pop up with a part of the actual image. I printed off a second copy of the lollipop, added stickes (Star Dust) then added Glossy Accents.

I used the sketch from Feeling Sketchy and the color challenge was from Your Next Stamp which was turquoise, lime, green and brown. My favorite colors ๐Ÿ™‚

Spoil Yourself Silly!

When I first saw this digi, which came in a set of 4 (so yes, expect more to come) I knew I had to get it right away! They’re so adorable, easy to color and fun to play around with!

For this image I just wanted to play around with her curly hair which is super cute! I added rhinestones for her toppings just to add some dimension to it.

The sketch was from Mojo Monday:

The candies are actually from another image that came with the same digi set. No worries, it’s coming ๐Ÿ˜‰ I added Stickles Star Dust just like in the hair and added Glossy Accents to make it look like an epoxy sticker. I kind of squished it thinking that it had fully dried. The sentiment was from Penny Blacks stamps set Bubbly. I also used Spellbinders Edgeabilities – Classic Scallops.

Geeky Bookmark

For my friend’s birthday this year I decided to make something different this year. I’ve never made anything other than a card so this is a first. The image is from The Greeting Farm – Geeky Cheeky which I colored for a while. I knew I was going to use it for Carol’s card, so finally today it’s in use!

I used the happy birthday stamp from Penny Black’s It’s Your Day stamp set. I also used Spellbinders Label Eighteen and stamped it with Hero Arts background stamp – Friends Definition. The text in the background is from the washi tape I used (for the first time in a year) I couldn’t add too much texture embellishments (buttons etc) otherwise its not really going to work between pages of a book. I used Rangers Gloss for the hair and and the sentiment was heat embossed with Stamendous Pearlustre Hematite.
