Have a SUPER day!

Happy Easter my friends! It is Easter Saturday here and so far my weekend has been pretty relaxing. Apart from a few hours of work that I have to fit in sometime over the next day or two, I am hoping it will pretty much stay that way :)

I did manage to have a little play in my craft room yesterday and came up with this card using some of the new goodies from My Favorite Things. How adorable is this little Super Girl? I love that it has matching dies so you don't have to do all of that fussy cutting by hand. I also created the elements of the card using the latest Blueprints Die-namics. They make creating a card so quick and easy! And of course, I have coloured her with Copic Markers.

I cannot believe that we are about to start the Easter long weekend celebrations .. this year is just whizzing by. Or maybe it's just me! I always seem to be chasing my own tail at the moment :)

And here is my card.

Seize The Birthday Challenge - White on White

It is time for another great challenge over at Seize the Birthday!

Our "Toppings" option this time is....

"White on White"

Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If your not a toppings kinda person, well.....you can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!

The choice is yours!

For my card this week I have used one of the new floral stencils from My Favorite Things together with some white Jo Sonja paste to create the raised design. I also sprinkled it with glitter while it was still wet so that it would sparkle :)  I then embossed the greeting using platinum embossing powder.

Just Add Ink Challenge #210 - Just add an Easter basket for box!

With Easter just around the corner, there couldn't be a better time to share some Easter projects with you, and that is exactly what we are doing this week over at Just Add Ink.

To create my basket I used the envelope punch board and followed a tutorial which I found HERE. It was so quick and easy to make!  To finish it off I just added some pretty ribbon, a die cut flower and a quick and easy tag. I then sprayed it all with a light coat of glitter spray so that it really sparkles (although you can't see it in the photo).

Just Add Ink Challenge #209 - Just Add Layers

Hi folks!

It's challenge time again over at Just Add Ink, and this week it's such a fun one! We want you to add layers to your project.

I have created my card by layering die cuts and stamped images from My Favorite Things.

I started by stamping the woodgrain stamp in white ink onto kraft cardstock before die cutting it and mounting it on foam.  Then I coloured the stamped image in Copic markers before also die cutting it and layering it over the top.

The background is sponged using a cloud die and some blue chalk.

Just Add Ink #208 - Colour Challenge

Happy Friday friends!  I hope that you all have a fun weekend planned. I am personally hoping mine will be nice and quiet and uneventful. And that I may even find time to spend some of it in my craft room!

If you're hoping to craft this weekend too, maybe this gorgeous colour sketch over at Just Add Ink this week will give you some inspiration.

I didn't have any of the ink colours but did have some cardstock and used my Copic markers to create the blue flowers. So remember, even if you don't have these exact colours you can substitute with something similar.

Here is my card for the challenge. The more I look at it, the more I wish I had added more detail, like some stitching or paper piercing around the white card, but since I stuck those flowers on with glossy accents there was no way I could remove them so I guess it stays like it is :)

Please excuse the dark photo, I took this at night and the lighting wasn't the best!
