Grasshopper Leap – What’s Up?

Just a fun, cheeky little card featuring an image from House Mouse Designs called Grasshopper Leap. I just love the grasshopper ricocheting off of Mudpie’s head! I paired it with this sweet design paper from the Saucy Collection by Authentique and a sentiment from Paper Smooches to create a fun card to brighten someone’s day.

Chick and Bunny Wobble

I happened upon the Cool Chick stamps from Stampingbella and knew immediately that I needed to color them. I posted one card using Mail Chick last month. Now I’ve completed another featuring the stamp Chick and Bunny Wobble and using a slightly different color combination on the chick this time. I’ve added another color map so that you can follow along.

Spring Meadow Bouquet

I’m over on the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends blog today with my latest card featuring the Spring Meadow Bouquet digital stamp set from Power Poppy and a variety of dies and embossing folders from Creative Basics and LDRS Creative.

I’m slowly getting around to color Power Poppy images that were released before I became an Instant Gardener. Although it’s still January (barely), I’m looking forward to spring when I can start planning out my flower boxes. Yes – I’m a container gardener. We have a long narrow courtyard out back that we recently landscaped into an outdoor living space that we decorate with large containers of bright, beautiful flowers.

I’ve eyed this beautiful bouquet from Power Poppy for a long time. I love the delicate flowers and of course the bee! I decided to highlight a portion of it for my card.

This image is not as complicated as it looks – just do all of the same flower at the same time.

As always, ready made cards like this one are available in my Etsy shop. Stop by and take a look. You’ll make my husband happy – the shop helps to fund my craft habit!
