FUN......

I hope all is well with everyone.  I have been the worst blogger of late.  Just never seems to be time since I am working on getting a new job where I work so I am studying all the extra time I have.


When I first saw Jinx by Brigid Ashwood all I could think of was the word FUN!!!  I think she would be perfection for a teenagers card.  You can find this Phunky Fairy at Sweet Pea Stamps.

Colored with copics, cut out and popped up!!!  The big X behind her is glossed with glossy accents.  3 safety pins hold the framing behind her together.  The word fun was stamped with some giant alphabet stamps!!! She was so much FUN to work with.  What are you waiting for?  Grab her and a few others for yourself!

A Splash of Red.....


Well we have not had anymore snow since the storm last week. Cross my fingers it is done!!!!! 

I am sharing a monochromatic beauty with you today with a SPLASH of RED.  This is Telsa by Nikki Burnette.  You can purchase her and he other wonderful artwork at SWEET PEA STAMPS.


I colored her with all cool tone grays in Copics and then added just a splash of red.  Matted her with some swirls and added a feather in her hat and 3 more as accents. She was a pleasure to color and Kreate with.

Hello Spring…….


First off I would like to apologize for my pic of my card.  I forgot my camera at our cabin and had to scan instead!!!

Welcome Spring or so I thought until we got hit with snow again yesterday.  Every time it just about melts we get a snowstorm again.  Hopefully this will be our last and we will see tulips popping up through the ground soon.

My card today is another beauty Caron Vinsons Art Collection called the blue Fairy!!!  This beauty can be purchased alone or with 3 others at non other than SWEET PEA STAMPS!!!!!  I adore the sweet innocence this artist portrays in her work.  They are such a joy to work with.

Colored with copics and some stickles here and there she is framed and bowed along with a few pearls.  A simple way to say Hello Spring!!!!

I have soooooo many images colored I just have to get to my studio and get them on cards.  Never enough time!!!!!!

Congrats on my new Grandson!!!


Hello everyone.  I have been so busy since my vacation.  Work has been going crazy. Snow up to my chest to deal with and a sick hubby.

I am so very excited to show you this card I made for my Son and Daughter In Law.  On Saturday they graced me with my newest Grandchild Jaxson!  He was 6 weeks early and weighs 5 pounds but is healthy!!!

This wonderful image is from SWEET PEA STAMPS and is by Jennifer Nilssons Art Collection called My Sister and Me.  It can be purchased as a single stamp or with 3 others and a sentiment.  Of coarse I used it as Mommy and Me!!


Colored with copics and a dash of stickles.  I cut the seashells on my Cricut and popped them up for depth.  A computer generated sentiment and ready for the mail!

I apologize for not commenting lately but hope to start again real soon!

In The Pink......


This post was scheduled before I left on vacation!!!  I should be walking the beach as you read this!!!

Today I share with you this sweet kitty from Karen Middleton.  She or he is just darling and a dream to work with.  I decided to use her for a Birthday card for my 5 year old Granddaughter.  She comes with another image and a sentiment and is available at SWEET PEA Stamps.


Colored with copics and chalk on the background.  I used tons of stickles in the lace of the little blanket my kitty is hanging in.  I added the tiny clothespins over the ones the artist drew and slipped in a little paper with celebrate on it!!!  Lace and some pearls with a heart button and bow finish the look.

Masquerade Anyone????


I leave tomorrow for a 10 day vacation to Hilton Head Island.  I am totally counting the minutes maybe even seconds.  I can not wait to get into warmer weather!!

Today I show another Caron Vinson's stamps called Fall Masquerade Fairy.  I decided to do her in bright colors and was thinking of Mardi Gras in New Orleans!!! I adore the innocence of this artist.  You can purchase this beauty at Sweet Pea Stamps. She can be bought as a single stamp or on a sheet with 3 others and a sentiment.


She is colored with copics and a bit of chalking as a background.  A thick layer of glitter on her wings and some stickles on her dress.  I spritz some glimmer mist on the corners and on the bow and feathers.  Do not know how it shows in the picture.  Gem stones finish the glitz and glam!!!  I hope you enjoy!

Flower Fairy......


Hello everyone.  Has anyone noticed that my 
GREEN BAY PACKERS
won the Super Bowl.  Everyone here in Wisconsin is so very proud of them.

Today I want to share with you a new stamp from SWEET PEA STAMPS called Flower Fairy.  She is part of the magical collection by Meredith Dillman.  She is a part of a 4 stamp set.  They are available for pre-order shipping on Feb. 14th.


I tried with all my might to use and color with a soft touch on this one.  I tend to go heavier on my colors.  Of course she was done with copics and chalk in the background.  Her marvelous wings got a heavy dose of glitter and stickles were added to various parts to give her that glorious sparkle.  Double matted and popped up for depth.  The flowers are almost see through and an addition of some pearls and a sheer bow finished the look.  I hope you all enjoy!!!

Do not forget to enter your card In A Sweet Pea Dream challenge blog to win a gift card to purchase your choice of stamps.  The theme is anything at all!!!  No excuses not to enter.

Lady In Green....



I hope all is well wherever you are.  It took us 2 hours just to get rid of the snow behind our 4 wheel drive truck to move yesterday.  It was up to my waist and I am 5ft 9 inches tall.  What a trip.  The snow blower could not even get through it.  Anyway back to work today.  Hopefully all the roads I need to take have been cleared.

Today I show another Caron Vinson's stamps called Glam Goth Fairy.  Mine is not that Goth looking though!!! I adore the innocence of this artist.  You can purchase this beauty at Sweet Pea Stamps. She can be bought as a single stamp or on a sheet with 3 others and a sentiment.

She is colored with copics and a bit of chalking as a background.  A thick layer of glitter on her wings and some stickles on her dress.  Swirls, gems, a bow and flowers finish the look. 

Just a reminder I will be giving 3 grab bags of Sweet Pea stamps this week.  Just follow this LINK.

Wall Hangings....

Good Day to everyone.  I hope all is well.  I am dreading driving the next couple of days to work since we are going through a blizzard.  I hate snow.  I really need to be on a warm sunny beach somewhere.

Today I am going to show you a project I did for my Granddaughters bedroom.  I hope you like it!!!



I used the Portrait stamps from Elaine Cox that can be purchased at Sweet Pea Stamps.  These luscious beauties can be purchased as a single stamp or on a page of 4.

I colored both with my copics and then added tons of glitter to their wings.
I added a lace flower topped with a rosette button.  Added a bow and a few dew drops and placed them on a block frame for hanging.

I thought these were the most enchanting faces I have ever colored and will be perfect for her bedroom wall.
I hope you like them too.

Just a reminder I will be giving 3 grab bags of Sweet Pea stamps this week.  Just follow this LINK.

Moonlight Fairy....


I told you I would have a couple of cards up this week.  We are going up north for the weekend and I have no internet so I will color, color, color so I can continue to present the magnificent stamps from none other than SWEET PEA STAMPS.  I am so lucky to be part of the Sweet Pea family and be able to Kreate with such wonderful artists images. 

Today I show another Caron Vinson's stamps called Moonlight Fairy.  I adore the innocence of this artist.  You can purchase this beauty at Sweet Pea Stamps. She can be bought as a single stamp or on a sheet with 3 others and a sentiment.


She once again was colored with copics and given a dusting of some spica pen glitter on her clothes, hair and the mushroom.  Her wings were glittered with some Art Institute Glitter.  I love how very fine their glitter is.  Double matted and popped up I then added 3 lovely flowers and leaves with yellow centers.  3 dew drops finished her look.  I enjoyed so Kreating with this stamp.  I hope you like it also.

Hello everyone. I want to thank you all for hanging with me while I had my eye problems.  I have no idea where that came from but I am glad that it is clearing up and my work was sympathetic to it!!!  Let's just say I never want to have it again!!!!

Today I am getting in the mood for some sunny weather and showing you a new stamp from Caron Vinson called Summer Fun!!!  You can purchase this beauty at Sweet Pea Stamps. She can be bought as a single stamp or on a sheet with 3 others and a sentiment.


I colored her with copics and added a bit of gloss and stickles to her dress and the sand.  Her wings were given a good dose of glitter!!  She is double matted and popped up.  I added ribbon and a bow with a palm tree charm to continue the theme.  If you like me are shoveling snow or facing bitter cold I hope she brought a bit of sunshine into your life.

Blushing.....


I hope you are all staying warm wherever you are and 20011 is treating you well.  My card today is by Sweet Pea Stamps and is Elaine Cox's "Katie" from her portrait collection.  You can purchase her alone of with 3 other amazing stamps.  You will see the others in the upcoming future.  I just love the ethereal beauty these portraits have.  They are truly a joy to KREATE with.

I didn't want to take away from her radiance so I kept my layout and details to a minimum.  Colored with copics and a hint of glossy accents on her eyes and mouth.  Her lavish wings were covered with glitter and a touch on her bodice.  Double matting and a sheer organza bow finish everything off.  I hope you too appreciate her beauty!!!
