Have I toad you...

 Happy Monday everyone. Trust you had a good weekend and found some time to get creative. I have a couple of fun cards to share with you today. The first one uses the new Have I Toad you greeting and I paired it with the toadstools and little frog. 




I started by stamping and masking the toad stools, colored them with Copics and die cut. This little frog was stamped, colored, fussy cut and glued on top of a toadstool. I used the splatter background on white CS, die cut the panel and attached it to a kraft card base. After attaching the main image I added the greeting with some foam adhesive for dimension. I think that tiny frog is so cute with his bow tie!

This next card uses the adorable chick on a nest image which I stamped, colored with Copics and die cut. The background on this card was created uses a TH stencil. I added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to some of the dots and then added the cute as a button greeting. 




Thanks for stopping by today.

May Your Faith

 Happy Monday Everyone. Hope you had a great weekend. It has been pleasantly warm here which meant I just wanted to be outdoors enjoying the warmth while it lasted!! I did take some time to create a couple of cards over the weekend. Making cards is so relaxing for me. Here's one I created using the new flowering branch image.





I stamped the image and colored it with Copics first, then I used a cloud stencil and created the background using a light blue ink. The His Blessings Faith greeting was stamped with Versafine black ink and I smudged it a little bit. So I stamped the trio of butterflies, colored the image and fussy cut this one since it is the right size and orientation.  I kind of like having the butterfly there, but it is a tad too big compared to the birds. But I didn't want to throw the panel away. Gotta love those quick fixes we come up with!

Thanks for stopping by today. You can find this image and greeting here at DRS Design's on line shop.

Happy Easter!

 Hello everyone. I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. Did Easter sneak up on you like it did me? I am can't believe yesterday was Easter! Even though Easter is past, I do have a couple of Easter cards to share with you today. 


This first one features the new Tails up Bunny, which is just too cute! I paired it with the Some bunny loves you greeting and the jelly bean background. I colored the jelly beans with various markers and layered everything on this bright pink CS.




This next card isn't quite so bright and features the new chick in a nest. I used a stencil for the background and the splatter background for the strips of white. I didn't add a greeting to this one. I decided to wait and add the greeting when I used the card. It could be an Easter or Happy Spring or thinking of you card. This image would make an adorable new baby card too!




Thank you for stopping by today. You can see these new images and all the other images at DRS Designs on line store here.

Happy Easter

 Happy Monday Everyone. Trust you had a great weekend and found some time to get creative. I have had fun playing around with the newest images DRS Designs has just released. They are beautiful and perfect for this Easter season.


My first card uses the new Holy Week image, which I stamped wither Versafine black ink onto water color paper. The image was water colored with various Distress Oxide inks. It was die cut with s SB square die. I die cut several squares and glued them all together to give some dimension to the image. For the background I sponged three different Distress Oxide inks, splattered some water onto it and then die cut it with a Fawn Lawn stitched rectangle die. The Easter Greetings image was stamped with Versafine Black ink and heat embossed with clear EP. I really like how this turned out.




This next card features the new Hope is the Greatest Gift greeting and the small single cross, which is one of my all time favorite images. This card was easy and quick to create and would be good for mass producing. 


The cross and greeting were stamped onto white CS, die cut and layered onto plum CS. The little cross was colored with Copics. The white panel was embossed with a SB EF. Everything was attached to a matching plum card base. A few rhinestones were added to complete the look.


I hope you have a blessed Passion Week as you look forward to Easter this Sunday. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Easter

 Happy Monday everyone. Hope you had a great weekend. I have a couple of Easter cards to share with you today. They were quick and easy to create.


I started with a white panel and sponged on some yellows and even an orange DO inks using a Gina K stencil. For this first card I stamped the Happy Easter and small cross onto white CS, colored the cross with some Copics, die cut and layered it onto a die cut circle that had the same yellow inks sponged around the edges. The stenciled panel was die cut with a Fawn Lawn stitched rectangle die and glued onto the white card base. Easy peasy!




This next card is very similar. I used the same stencil, stamps and inks. This time I stenciled in the center circle with the same inks as the rays, then stamped the greeting along the bottom. The small cross was stamped onto white CS, colored with Copics, fussy cut and attached to the center with foam adhesive strips. 




You can see these images as well as the newest Easter/Spring images here at DRS Designs on line store.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  Happy Monday. Hope you had a great weekend. Can you believe March is half over?!! Time seems to be flying by!  I have a couple of very similar cards to share with you today. They both feature the same sketch design. 




The silhouette cloverfour leaf clover, and tiny shamrocks images were randomly stamped onto the white card base with dark green ink. The Top Hat St. Patrick's Day greeting was stamped with Memento Black ink onto white CS, colored with Copics and die cut with a Concord and 9th edge die. I used the same die to cut the green panel underneath the greeting.

This next card uses the same greeting but the background was created using the easy Shamrock background image. I just Old Olive ink to stamp it. Everything else is the same on this card.





Thanks for stopping by. You can see these images as well as all the other fabulous images from DRS Designs here.

Get Your Irish On!

 Happy Monday everyone. Trust you had a great weekend and found some time to get creative. I've been enjoying playing with the newest St. Patrick's Day images from DRS Designs. My first card features the new Arched Window image and the little frog/toad from the Toad Made for you Recognition image.



To create my little scene I first stamped the silhouette shamrocks with Memento Bamboo ink, then I stamped the wood grain image with Distress Antique Linen ink. I sponged on some DO inks to color in the scene. The Arched window was stamped onto white CS with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics and fussy cut. I did the same thing with the little toad and the top hat from the Top Hat St. Patrick's Day Greeting. Once everything was attached to the panel the Get Your Irish On greeting was stamped with Versafine Black ink and then the panel was added to the white card base.


My next card is rather simple, but I really like the look. I did the same technique for the background that I did a couple of weeks ago. The silhouette clover image was stamped with some Altenew green ink. I stamped the image twice before reinking to give the two different shades of green. The Top Hat St. Patrick's Day greeting was stamped with Memento Black ink, colored with copics and die cut. I layered it on a couple more die cut rectangles to it some dimension,





I really like the simple look of this card. It would be easy to mass produce. I'm going to look through my stamps and see what other solid images I have that could be used to create a background like this. Easy peasy!
