Quick Creation's Sunflower by Doveart Studios

Welcome back friends,

I am here with you today to share with you a beautiful stamp by Dove Art Studio. This stamp simply named "Sunflower" was such a fun stamp to color. Of course I have used my copic markers with lots of fall colors to create this beauty. 


Other items I have used to create this card are papers by Wild Rose Studio named "Harvest Meadow" as well as a few little dew drops created using Nuvo Crystal Drops in English Mustard

LDRS Creative CandiBean Handpicked for Hedgy

Happy Monday everyone. 

I just recently purchased two real Hedge Hogs so I just had to have my very first design team blog post for LDRS Creative to be using one of CandiBean's adorable hedge hog stamps. Here are my two REAL heggies. 




Now for my project inspired by my babies. This little fellow (Stamp) below is named "Handpicked for Hedgy" and has been colored with Copic Markers.



I have used numerous LDRS dies with this project including the brand new Peaceful Dove Edge die along with our Creative Basic Fancy Rectangles and Layers set. With the Peaceful Dove Edge Die I simply cut it numerous times with 3 different fall colored card stocks. Then fussy cut to create multi colored leaves. To finish out the card I used the "Wishing You" sentiment stamp set. 

Be sure to check out all the amazing stamps, dies, and embossing folders in the LDRS Store!! Have a Happy Week Everyone!

Stampin' Up! OnStage 2016 Convention ~ Atlanta Ga.

Hello Crafty Peeps!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of spending my time with an amazing group of Stampin' Up! Friends. Some I had met previously and some I just met, but feel instantly bonded with. I attended the 2016 Stampin' Up! Onstage Convention and let me just say this is a beautiful company to be working with.


I titled as "Silver Elite" right before the end of the SU! selling cycle so I was recognized on stage at the event. Thank you to Diane and Lynda for grabbing these awesome shots....You all made me feel so special.


Want to join us in 2017 for the next On Stage event? I would love to support YOU along the way. Let's GET CRAFTY TOGETHER! To get started you can click HERE to view my website and then click on the "Join the FUN" tab. :-)

Happy Stamping!

Quick Creations Shabby Chic Card Using Cottage Cutz "Fancy Victorian" Die

Hi friends,

As many of you know I love pretty much anything with wings so this die truly spoke to me when I saw it because the wings are so delicately detailed. I have a fascination with dies anyways, but dies with wings??? WIN WIN!!!! 

For my first card this month for the Quick Creations Design Team, I have made this Shabby Chic card using the Cottage Cutz Die called "Victorian Butterfly". It is just such a beautiful die that I decided to layer a couple of them on top of each other to add more dimension. I then added lace and pearls to finish off the card without distracting from the butterflies beauty. 

Quick Creations caries many butterfly dies. To see them all simply click HERE!


The color scheme of these papers by Kaiser Craft were just perfect as well. The paper's name is "Fairy Dust"... Quite suiting don't you think?



Here is a close up showing the flowing movement the layers gives it.  I hope you have enjoyed my project today. I will be back on Sunday with a coordinating project featuring a Saturated Canary Stamp. Make sure to join my mailing list so your are notified when that card is shared.

Happy Crafting!
