What's Up Buttercup

Happy Saturday friends it's my turn to share some LDRS Creative Inspiration and with Fall here it's only logical that I use Autumn as my inspiration for today's card.

 CandiBean -What's up Buttercup is her name and well
you could see how versatile this stamp can be. You could do a fun Summer theme with it, Spring and certainly Fall. I mean if you wanna  push it you could add snow all over them for winter and there ya go :P

My image was watercolored with various mediums. From TimHoltz Distress pads, Reinkers, Tombow watercolor markers and pencils to touch up little areas.

My sentiment fit perfectly well with the LDRS Darling Square Die set. I used my Vintage Affections sentiment and then die cut it using the decorative circle you see below. This Die set is always my go to lately. I used the decorative square for my base for What's Up Buttercup too.

Darling Square Die Set

I'm so stuck on Fall and to get me out is gonna be haaaaard lol!

I used some Graphic 45 designer paper, very pretty paper I might add. 

The Cocoa ribbon, my friend Tammy and design team sistah from LDRS sent me for a card swap is insanely rich. I LOVE IT! Tammy thank you so very much love. I love my goodies and mainly a beautiful letter she sent with. I have it put away for safe keeping.

Ok that's it for today and I'll be back very soon. Been doing A LOT of coloring  and  I've shared on my FB page so make sure you follow me there too for more behind the scene pictures and work in progress!

Enjoy the weekend peeps

A Little Bit More Latte Please!

I'm back again today to share some MORE New Lisbeth Rubber stamps Inspiration.

It's a weekend of fun remember. 
Don't forget to join in the HOP for the chance to win sweet Prizes.
If you scroll down you could catch my hop creation I shared yesterday with all the Prize details.

Today we have Rhea from Passionate Paper Creation and Friends hosting a coloring contest and she will also be having a limited time Freebie so make sure to stop by their Facebook page.

Today I'm sharing Lisbeth Winter Cuppa and she is colored with copics and pencils on kraft paper. Coloring this big polar bear was very relaxing. Trying to concentrate on his fur was very therapeutic for me.

I was over excited to use my FAVORITE LDRS sentiments from the Coffee collection and that tiny cuppa is part of the set too! Tucking in those Dewdrop border die around the image for extra depth. You might not be able to see it but those Twigs around the flowers are so sparkly, I'm so addicted to them.

I hope you enjoyed the inspiration I have for you today. I promise I'll be back soon ...I promise!
Have a great weekend friends

Saturated Canary Pricilla

Hello I'm back with my second post today.
If you're swing by to visit me through Trudie's BDAY HOP just scroll down.

Today is my turn to share some LDRS Inspiration and I decided to watercolor a cute
Saturated Canary Rubber stamp named Pricilla. I colored with TimHoltz Distress Ink pads and detailed with pencils.

I kept a rose and brown tone going so photographing was a bit tricky cuz it kept picking it up like sepia lol!

I used one of the latest LDRS Dies Dewdrop die which I cut two times and touched it up with a pink soft lace on top of them both.

Now my sentiment is from the Vintage Affections Postage set. I can't stress enough the size of it....IT'S REALLY AWESOME! The stamp sentiment doesn't get lost and stands out just right.

That's all for me today and  I promise I'll be back soon 
Thanks all for the visit
and have a wonderful weekend! HAPPY EASTER!
