Hi, crafty friends,

Welcome to my post for today.  I am showcasing the lovely "Alanna", one of Conie Fong's new releases.  I love Conie's images!  You can find her here in Conie's etsy shop:

This beauty has been coloured with Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils.

A close-up:

I used The Paper Studio's "Bricks" embossing folder
and CottageCutz "Springtime Window" die

I made all the flowers using assorted punches.  The vine at the top is from Heartfelt Creations' "Birds and Blooms" stamps and dies

Swarovski crystals are from my stash.  I wish you a lovely day.  Lori P xx

Hello, peeps!
I am showcasing my DT card which I created for Ching-Chou Kuik's current Facebook Challenge.  The theme this month is "Celebrate". Check it out: 
The gorgeous image is "Radiant Butterfly" by Ching-Chou Kuik, found here:
This beautiful image is part of a set of 4 beautiful mermaids.

As always, I've coloured her and the koi with my beloved Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils.

Hi, crafty friends!

I was looking for something in my craft room a few days ago and I discovered this card that I made a little while ago.   While on Facebook today, I saw a reminder on the Whimsy Stamps and Inspiration group regarding their current blog challenge, so I thought I'd enter my card showcasing Sylvia Zet's  adorable "Goldie" image, found on Whimsy Stamps here:

 I coloured her with Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils.  I used Martha Stewart's Deep Edge Punch called "Flourish Flower Trim" for the sides (which, when the card is open, you can see through the sides). 
My flowers are made with EK Success' medium and small "Retro Flower" punches. I also used Memory Box "Loopy Rings" die
 Swarovski crystals, seashell, starfish and gauze are from my stash.

And a side view:

That's all from me today.  Have a lovely day.  Lori P xx

Spring Flower

Hello, dear peeps! 
The Ching-Chou Kuik Monthly Facebook Challenge is in progress and I'm showcasing the stunning "Spring Flower" image which is in Ching-Chou's etsy shop here:
The theme this month is "Celebrate".  Here is my card:

I used Crafter's Companion's "Die'sire Edge'able Wishing You a Happy Birthday" die for the base of the card.
I coloured this beauty with Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils.  Her wings are glittered but it's hard to see here.

A close-up:

Here is a side view:

I love these word dies because you can place them at the top, sides, diagonally or on the middle of a card.  The flowers were made with various paper punches.  Pearls, Swarovski crystals and ribbon are from my stash.  Have a lovely day.  Lori P xx
