Chilly Bunny

Good morning everyone! 

I have a Christmas card to share with you today... it features the sweet 'Chilly Bunny' image that I won from Sami Stamps a couple of weeks ago! Isn't it adorable?! 
It's colored with Copics and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. I used a MFT die for the corner, a Echo Park die for the Heart Doily and Vintage Photo ink for the distressing. The papers are from the Authentique 'Tidings' collection that I purchased on line, it looked like it was a mix of kraft colored designer papers but when it arrived the papers were more peachy!! Oh well, I worked with them and I like how my card turned out... peach and all! :) 

 Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of your wonderful comments.
I'll see you soon... Tammy x

Smile and be happy...

Good afternoon everyone!

I wanted to pop in today and share a couple of quick cards that I made with the Simon Says Stamps May Card kit!  
What a super fun kit... for these two cards I used the 'Happy Days' stamp set, sequins and the word stickers by Pinkfresh Studio. I did a simple watercolor wash for the background and I used Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches dies to cut everything out. The images were stamped onto watercolor paper, heat embossed and then watercolored with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors, I also added a little more color to the sentiments.  

These cards were so easy to make and I love how bright they turned out... they are perfect for the local charity that I donate to!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of the wonderful comments you leave.
I'll see you tomorrow!
