Bunny card


I was trying to keep this card in clean and simple style. I couldn't figure out what image I can use. I didn't want to add flowers. I looked around my craft supplies and I found "my little pet shop" coloring book.   I bought this coloring book years ago for when I was babysitting and I decided to use one of the characters. I want to make sure that I give the full credit to "my little pet shop" company for coming up with character concepts. Although they have borrowed it from Japanese style. If they have created stamps with the same characters I would buy them all. They are just are so stinking cute.

Here is card:

I've started with trying to figure out the background. I have used Just Rite border stamp and kaleidocolor ink by tsuneko. It is pretty cool ink pad because it has all the colors together but they can be separated if needed.
To create my little bunny I have re drawn image from the color book and colored it with Copics. I used primary C-0, C-3, C-5 and C-7. I know now that once I put copics over the pencil it's really hard to erase the pencil marks. I put my little bunny on the pop dots.
I used stoffee pen to create the fax stitching. It is pretty cool because when you put it on it goes on as
darker color then what it actually will be. I like it because it gives a little puff.
I used Just Rite Grand Sentiments for the sentiment inside and out.

What do you think?

CAS-- Here we go again


It seems that my work is taking a lot of my personal time. Don't have as much to create my cards.
This card was created for CAS- JustRite Challenge. I am not the best at CAS card because I always feel that I need to add more.

Here is the card:

I have used pattern paper from recollection. It has little embossing. I used JR medallion stamp and colored with copics put on the pop dot. Used JR thank you stamp for greeting. I did faux stitching to tie the colors together.
On the inside of the card I decided to add a little pocket for a gift card, since it is a "thank you" card.

P.S. I really like the new stamps JR came up with. I hope I win so I can get it to play with it. I am sure even if I don't I will be in my craft store buying in the moment they will come in :)

The first altered Canvas


This is my first altered art. It was interesting experience.

It took me a while to get this done. I've started with adding pattern paper and layering embossing paste with stencils. You can't really see the paper anymore. I am thinking I should have stopped with the embossing paste but it's all right. All the embellishments I have created using the molds and UTTE.
 For the flowers I have used Cherry Lynn dies and Spellbinders.
I used Tim Holtz dies for the gears and Effie tower.
The toughest part was to put them all together that they would work well.
After I glue everything down I used gesso to create unity.I have used mists to add color. I used the perfect pearl and pearl Ex mists that I have made.
I used the silver rub on the raised portions to bring more attention to those.
I used JR stamps to create the sentiment.

That's it. My first canvas alteration is done.

Spring is in the Air


When I think about spring I think birds and flowers.

I have used Cherry Lynn doily and JR Stamps.
I have started cutting out doily using wax paper. I really liked the wax paper cut out. I have used it to create a background. The sprayed it with perfect pearl mist that I made using perfect pearls. I felt that it needed something more and using Prima stencil and embossing paste added the stone texture.
I used copics to color the birds and the flowers from the JR background and cut them out. I really like working with copics. There is so much that can be done to play with color.
I distressed the edges of the panel.
Used JR circle of love for the frame, fussy cut it and inked the edges. Added Viva peals and the card is done.
It came out really pretty.
