Happy Easter with Owen


This is going to be a bit of a shorter post than usual, as I'm in sunny Mexico this weekend with mom and dad and hubby!  Went to Cozumel yesterday and had simply the time of my life!  I will share some photos with you here in blogland very soon!
 

Happy Easter to you all!

The project I made was one that I chose the DP because it was bright and springy, the image is Easter Owen and he has his little bunny friend with him in his dapper Easter garb!  He was just a darling to color with my copics and I decided to surround him with some of his favorite little toys from his basket!  The Tractor is call Green Acres and the Chug A Chug A die is the second from The soon to be available Paper Nest Dolls Store.  The little viewfinder called "The Darling View" in the background as well as the "Love" sentiment  from the Warm Fuzzies section of the Little Darlings Rubber Stamps Store and together, they make the perfect little Easter fun card for your little guy!


Have fun, talk with you all very soon again!  Ola!!   Just a little Espanol!  lol

I Love Being A Girl!


Fluttering By


The very first NEW release of custom dies are now available in the Little Darlings Stamps Store and you can play with them too!  So order right NOW!  

Get your "Fluttered Tulip Bodice" Custom Die and others while supplies last!
 Elegant in it's own right!  All by itself, or with a bit of bling, this die stands alone as a beautiful centerpiece for your next sentimental card.


I cut the die 8 times with green bazzill paper and decoupaged them together to create a chip board like ornament.  Then one last die cut with the design paper connecting it only at the body portion, glittering up the wing sections, embossing on the body and the green chippy section of the wings, then on the stand itself I used a very metal like chunky decoration to bring out the beaded mesh used in the background.  I'm a very lucky girl as to be working on the Little Darlings team because in this months packet was this gorgeous little ditty of a flower that simply made the final touches exquisite!

INGREDIENTS:
Fluttered Tulip Bodice - Little Darlings custom dies
Bazzill stock
Kaiser craft True Romance Collection "Adore"
Piastino Bella Blvd
Glitter Mesh - Little Darlings DT
Sentiment is Warm and Fuzzies - Girls Rock 


MEDIUMS:
Momento Ink


EMBELLISHMENTS:
Ribbon and Bead Pin from Angelica's Etsy Store
The little clay rosettes and butterflies adorned with candy glitter from The Little Scrap Shop Etsy Store
Stampendous Silver Crushed Glass Micro Glitter
Stampendous Frantage Shabby Pink embossing powder
