Sweet Fiona having fun with her clovers all around!

She’s perfect for a Good Luck, St. Patrick’s Day or March Birthday Card!

I’ve colored her with glitter for a sparkly touch adding a little magic to the card. The green colors are for this week’s blog challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio. Check it out and enter for a chance at some free digi stamps! Click on the picture for a bigger version to see the detail.

Even though I’m not Irish, I still enjoy the color green, shamrocks, leprechauns, pots of gold and rainbows!

Here’s another glittered acetate card using The Stamping Boutique’s Horseshoe digital stamp. The sketch that I used for this card came from TSB’s Digi Day at the Paper Craft Planet. Fun stuff!

I’ve been playing with digi stamps, acetate and glitter again! Here is the first in a series of glittered acetate projects using The Stamping Boutique and Michelle Perkett Studio digital stamps.

The technique is not hard, you just need some patience and attention to detail. Here’s how to do it…

Print a digital stamp on acetate. I use a laser printer and laser transparencies. Using a fine tip on a Crystal Lacquer bottle (the tips are sold separately), choose the first color and sections of the image that you want to be that color, and add Crystal Lacquer to that area on the dull side (back). If you have text, mirror the image before printing. Sprinkle on the glitter and shake off any excess. Repeat until the image has the amount of color and glitter for the design. Set aside and let it dry.

When it’s dry, cut to size. Brush the glittered side with a soft goat hair brush to remove excess glitter. Drop small amounts of lacquer on top of the glitter and adhere to backing paper. Usually white or cream works well to set off the glitter and detailed image. Embellish and you’re done!

Getting closer, but still over a month away! Yes, Easter is later this year than it normally is, so here is a layout to showcase a super cute digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique.

If you’ve noticed a couple extra blinkies showing up in the right side bar, it’s because I’m LUCKY to be a Guest Designer for The Stamping Boutique this month!!! Thank you to Tracey for having me and offering such great digital stamps to show off!

The Stamping Boutique is having a bi-weekly challenge with the first kicking off last week. You still have time to enter as the challenge closes on Sunday, so get to it!

The Texture on the page is the embossed paper, punched flowers and buttons. The Sparkle is also the paper as it’s coated all over with shimmer! The Buttons are the centers of the flowers. Thanks for stopping by today!

Isn’t she super cute? I’ve been wanting to color her for quite some time now and FINALLY found the right card for her!

It is challenge time again at the Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge Blog. A new challenge starts today, Tuesday and ends on the following Monday, March 14th.

This week’s challenge is to create a project using ribbon and lace and Michelle’s images. I know you can do it!

I used a beautiful lace and 2 different ribbons on this card, love those greens and browns!

I just LOVE Whimsie Doodles digital stamps! They are super cute and I love coloring them.

I watched some Copic coloring videos on YouTube recently and tried some of the new to me techniques on this little guy. Not too bad! I still need some practice time, but the results are better than before I think!

This is for this week’s Whimsie Doodle ‘Get Well’ challenge. Hope you like him!

Whimsie Doodles challenge #70


I purchased and won (yea!) some clear stamp sets from The Cat’s Pajamas. I used a set in one of the cards for the Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoaststampers recently and am using another one to meet a couple challenges this week.

I paper pieced the little girl in this set using BasicGrey’s Two Scoops Collection, an oldie but goodie. The colors are so yummy! I also used one of my new Spellbinders fancy label dies that I just love. So fun and a great result! I hope you’ll think so too.
