Hedgehog in Field of Daisies

Daisies are my favorite flower.  Couple them with cute hedgehog images and I just have to have it.  This is another Penny Black image that I got from Addicted to Rubber Stamps.  This is a great website and has over 1,000 images.  Their customer service is great also and you get your stamps in 2 – 3 days on regular shipping. 

I used some white primas and attempted to add a little color using my pads.  I need help in this area.  Anybody out there ever done this and could give me some hints?  I also used another Verve sentiment.  I love these sayings and think it fits this image so good.  The patterned paper has glitter on it that barely shows in the picture.  I have almost used up this patterned paper as it is one of my favorites from the stack.

Stamps: Daisy Hedgehog (Penny Black), All About You (Verve) Paper: Gable Green, Perfect Plum, white, DCWV glitter stack Ink:  Basic Black, Perfect Plum Accessories: primas, Creay Caramel – Sage Shadow – Summer Sun markers, blender pen, Perfect Plum & Yoyo Yellow brads, dinemsionals

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Anni-Verve-sary 7

Wow three posts in one day!  I think that is a record for me.

I have been trying to use colors I haven’t used in a while to just give me something different to work with.  I am so anxious for the new catalog and stamps.  I have my wish list already created and can’t wait for some new stamps.  I am on the lookout for some cute stamps like Fluffles and the Hedgehogs by Penny Black.  A girl needs some other images besides flowers!

Here is the last card I was able to create using the sketches from Verve.  They had 5 more sketches but I was not home to be able to create a card using them.  I like how this one turned out.  It was simple and easy to create in a avery short time.  What do you think of it?

Stamps: Asian Flair, Floral Whimsy Paper: Almost Amethyst, Rose Red, Sage Shadow, Very Vanilla Ink: Almost Amethyst, Rose Red, Sage Shadow Accessories: ribbon (Jody’s online share), flower punch (Martha Stewart), Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder, dimensionals

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Anni-Verve-sary 6

I have one more sketch after this one and then I will be sharing some other cards I created.

I just love this little fluffles stamp.  He looks like he is perplexed by the ladybugs.  This was also a different color combination for me.  I like the Blush Blossom and Night of Navy together.  Needed anothe color so went with the Green Galore.  Not sure about the green.

Stamps: Lady Bug Fluffles (Stampendous) Paper: Blush Blossom, Green Galore, Night of Navy, white Ink: Basic Black Accessories: Blush Blossom – Creamy Caramel – Green Galore – Real Red – Summer Sun markers, Circle Nestabilities, zig zag punch (Martha Stewart), photo corner punch, blender pen, Night of Navy brads, dimensionals

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Anni-Verve-sary 5 a little late

I cannot believe how cold it is here. It got down to 50 degrees last night. We also had a visit from a black bear. It tore up the plastic lid on the dumpster and the campground owner was out there with a pop gun trying to scare it away. It finally left but not after it got into the dumpster. Such exciting times in Deep Creek Lake!

Well I have a few more sketches I created before I left. This one is for sketch challenge 5. I have been playing with using markers and a blender pen to create some shading. I played on this one. I really like the effect but need to practice more.


Stamps: Flower Pot & Mouse (Whipper Snapper) Paper: Real Red, Yoyo Yellow, white Ink: Basic Black Accessories: Bashful Blue – Ballet Blue – Creamy Caramel – Glorious Green – Going Gray – Green Galore – Pretty in Pink – Pumpkin Pie – More Mustard – Summer Sun markers, dew drops, ric rac, scallop border punch, blender pen, dimensionals

Hope you like this one. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Another Verve sketch

Julee’s sketches are so easy to use.  They just seem to come together quickly for me.  I also wanted to use some of my new Penny Black images so I went with both of those.  I just love Rose Red and Close to Cocoa together and I think this card turned out really cute.
