Sending you lots of Love and Blessings

Hi there!
I'm Anna (al_handmade) and this is my last (*sigh*) post as a guest designer for this fabulous team. This is why I want to greet you all with a funny autumnal project featuring a little friend from “Fall Mice” stamp set.



First I drew a tree with Copic Markers and filled the background with multicolor leaves. I wanted to create a colorful autumn scene full of leaves and pumpkins and, with such a background, the "Fall Mice" stamp set was the perfect choice for building a happy scene.

I stamped the barrow, the mouse and some pumpkins directly on my card panel and colored them with Copics. Since I needed to create some dimensions, I stamped a new barrow and several other pumpkins on copic friendly paper, colored them, cut them and created a multilayered composition to enrich my card.



I chose a warm wish for this joyful scene. I stamped half of the sentiment directly on my card and half on a piece of kraft paper - heatembossing it with some white powder.

As a final touch I added some sequins and grabbed my Wink of Stella Clear Brush to make some pumpkins shine.



Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this project!
Have a nice weekend!

Wishing You a Very Happy Easter

Happy Friday! It's finally Spring!! Easter will be here soon and I just love this bunny from the new Easter Bunnies stamp set.

First, I created a background for the bunny by die-cutting a large egg and inking a few clouds and grass with Distress Inks.

For a little extra interest, I adhered the egg to a piece of white cardstock slightly overlapping the edge and then die-cut using a stitched rectangle...

Hello and happy Thursday Crafty Friends!  Tina here from Cards and Coffee Time with a fun tutorial to share with you.  I am hopping down the bunny trail this month with the too cute Bunny Friends stamp set. I love scene building and today I kept the background pretty soft and spring time-ish:) I used a die for my fence background, but in the tutorial I show how you can re-create one using 1/4"...
