Fairy in Blossom by Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamps

 Hi friends!  Time for another challenge over at the Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog:  http://lemonshortbreadchallenge.blogspot.com/

It's no secret that I love fairies and so I chose the beautiful "Fairy in Blossom" image by Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamps, found here:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/786332904/digital-stamp-fairy-in-blossom-digi?ref=shop_home_active_9


I coloured this beauty with Copics and Polychromos.  I wanted a wide frame and so I cut the frame in half to accommodate the image.  The large blue flower is handmade, but the other lovely flowers are from I Am Roses. Finally, I applied Wing of Stella (clear) to her wings for a lovely glitter effect. 

Remember to join in the fun and enter the challenge.  We would love to see your creations.  Thank you for visiting today.  Have a lovely day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Materials and Tools Used 

Frame:        Marianne Design "Anja's Large Ovals" die LR0236
Flowers:      I Am Roses, EK Success "Retro" punch (large blue flower)
Sentiment:  Creative Expressions "Hello & Hi" mini dies CED ME004

I Heart Coffee by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hello friends!  I made this card quite a while ago and never posted it.  I am a coffee lover so I start every morning with a large mug of black coffee.  So enjoyable!  There is a blog hop starting today and until March 26 over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog and I decided to enter it:    http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2021/03/2021-spring-summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/


This adorable image is a clear stamp by Krafin' Kimmie Stamps but I am unable to find a link for it.  I coloured it with Copic markers. The flowers are handmade. That's all from me today.  Thank you for visiting and hope to see you again.  I wish you a happy weekend. Until next time, Lori xx


Materials and Tools Used 

Frame:     Spellbiners "Labels 11" die

Gnome Gift by Conie Fong

 
Hi friends!  Happy St. Patrick's Day to those of you who observe it.  I love all mythical creatures and so I decided to make a card using another one of Conie Fong's darling gnomes.  This sweet little guy is "Gnome Gift", and can be found here, along with some other little gnomes:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/880719854/sale-digital-stamp-digi-stamp-digistamp?ref=shop_home_active_36                                                               


This card is similar to my previous card which has another gnome by Conie, and I plan to send them to my sons whose birthdays are in April.

The balloons, sentiment and the cupcake are free clipart images from the Internet.  I used Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils to colour this super sweet image.  

Conie has her current Facebook challenge going on now.  Why not join in the fun?  https://www.facebook.com/groups/396730687168777
