Books=Happiness

When I saw this image AMY LOVES BOOKS from Sasayaki Glitter Stamps  I knew that I wanted to create a canvas, this is the biggest canvas I've worked on, it's 12" x 16" and was perfect for what I envisioned.  I enlarged the image and made two copies, cutting out the bottom three books to stack for more height.  I colored it all with copic markers and then started on the canvas.

I used Multi Medium Matte to adhere a Tim Holtz tissue wrap to the canvas, put another coat on top, and started adding paint and color.  I laid down a light grey thin coat of acyrlic paint and then added gelatos in different colors.  The alpha stencil was used with Delta Ceramcoat in Tahiti Blue randomly on the canvas.  I spattered, white, black, purple and blue paint and then got working on the quote.  I googled reading quotes and chose this one, as it really says how I feel about books and reading.....for me, reading is my bit of happiness, as is creating, so this was perfect!   I used C.C. Designs big letter dies for the word BOOKS and cut out HAPPINESS with my silhouette.  The rest of the title was used with black sticker letters from EK Success.


I love how it turned out, love the image, love that it's a little bit messy and wonky and had a ton of fun creating!!  

Check out the Sasayaki Glitter Etsy shop for lots of fun images to play with, I'm sure you'll find something to spark your creative imagination! :)

Love you.........


My card today features this darling image called A Flower for You from Sasayaki Glitter and you can find it HERE.  

I used a few different pattern papers from the Pebbles Spring Fling 6x6 paper pad, a few papers from my stash, My Favorite Things Blueprint 14 for the square dies, flower, button, leaf and border.  I also used the Out of the Box die technique on the image.  I played with frantage for the first time in....well several years.  I bought a package with different types and colors and didn't really know what to do with it or how to use it,  so, I finally got it out and figured it out!  I think I love it!! :D

Happy Fall


Hey everyone!  I'm super excited to be posting for the first time as a Design Team member for Sasayaki Glitter.

For my first inspiration card, I've used Pumpkin Elly and you can find her HERE.

I just LOVE her and the fun fall scene, this card will be going to my sister and her family as elephants are her favorite animal! 

I've used different pattern papers from my stash, some green and white twine that I've added to a couple pumpkins and the sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas called Thankful Squeaks.   I've colored the image with copics and used a black prisma pencil to deepen the shadows.

I hope you like my card, come join us on Facebook or our Challenge Blog!

Happy Birthday

My card today is featuring this adorable elephant from Sasayaki Glitter that was a freebie at Kit and Clowders FB party a couple weeks ago, this is the perfect image for birthdays or celebrations!  

My sister LOVES elephants and I didn't have this one for her birthday in Aug, so looks like I'm WAY ahead of the game for her next birthday!! 😃

hugged......

Here is my last card for the Taylored Expressions 9th birthday celebration.                                             

I played a little bit with the sketch this time, not following it exactly, I didn't realize though that I used the color combo from the sketch!!  The little owl is from the Taylored Expressions Quick Critters die and stamp set. Lots of fun and super quick and easy!

Big Wishes


I made another card for the 9th birthday celebration over at Taylored Expressions using the fun sketch they provided.  The darling elephant is also from Taylor Expressions and is from the Hippo Birdy set.  There are a couple cute sentiments that could go with this, but I'm not sure if I will do a Welcome Baby  or Birthday card yet, so I will wait until I know before adding a sentiment. 

I used several papers from various paper pads and the rectangle and banner die are from My Favorite Things Blueprints 13.  It's hard to tell but I also cut out an extra ear and popped it up for some depth.  

Thanks for looking !! :)

Sending Birthday Wishes

I can't seem to get enough penguins and the ones from Sugar Pea Designs are just adorable.  These are perfect for masculine cards and since I never have enough on hand, decided to start building my stash.  I used the Happy Mail stamp set and the sketch/color challenge at Sugar Pea for the jumping point of my card.

All the stamps I used were from the stamp set and you can find it HERE.  For my background I took a couple different colors of copic refill inks and layed down big drops of color.  I really like how it turned out. :)
