Chester....tea cup

I colored up this cute little guy from Kraftin Kimmie.  His name is Chester and I colored him in prismacolor pencils on craft cardstock.  I cut him out and put him with my little vintage teacup I made.

Here is my little tea cup!  I saw quite a few of them on pintrest, but none were the size I wanted, so I made my own pattern up.
I cut a piece of decorative paper 5 3/4 by 3 inches.  I  scored it on the long side 7/8th inches all the way down .  On the short side I scored at 3/4th and 2 inches.  
Then I took my bag punch board and punched on the long side at every score line.
I notched out the bottom corner using my scissors.
I folded the paper all the way around and folded the top 3/4 th inch down, then I glued together the solid side pieces, making a 6 sided cup with a open bottom that has the punches.
I then glued each punched opening to the opposite side, making the rounded bottom of the cup.  I used 1/4 inch strip by 3 inches to make the handle.
I glued it on to a doily for the base.
You can go here, to see this ladies step by step procedure...I just used my own measurements.

Birthday Bianca

So, I found another little stamp to play with from Annie Rodrique.  She is called Birthday Bianca and I found her over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  I colored her up in Spectrum Noir Pencils.  I was away for a while and I take my Spectrum Noir's with me when I go places....
I had some fun papers in mind when I colored her....
And here she is on her own card!  I made a little bean baggie sort of thing for her to sit on as I find her at an odd angle.  (Least for me, I would fall over!) 

Hope you like!

Dancing in the Rain...

Coloring again.  I used the trusty Prismacolor pencils.  I then made this little card with the sweet little girl stomping in the rain puddle.
I once was traveling to my BF house, it was late at night, it was just starting to rain.  I looked on the side of the road and I saw this little girl who looked just like this stamp.  I stopped the car and went back to find her, but she was not there....  so when I saw this stamp, I had to get it and color it just like the little girl I saw on the side of the road.

Hope you  like!

Look for Rainbows...

Look for Rainbows....
Its been a rough week over here.  Then I saw a challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie's for glitter...well.  I am a crafter and glitter I have.  Not that I like to use it, it seem if you even get the container out, your house is glitterfied. :)  But I contained it this time with a little shaker.  I put red glitter and green and blue pebbles and some gold suns.  I tried to make it cheery!  Just a little something to brighten mine and your day.

I love it when it rains.  It has to be one of my favorite weather's!  (my number 1 favorite is when the wind blows)
Hope you like!

Izzy Icecream, prismacolor pencils

I got my trusty prismacolor pencils out again.  I tell you they are a lifesaver lately.  It is always good to sit down and do something for yourself.  Something that makes you feel worthwhile.  Being able to color these cute little stamps has been doing that for me.  This little one is from Kraftin Kimmie...Surprise, surprise.  She is also retired, but you can still find her out there in the internet world.
 I colored her with two flavors...chocolate and cherry.  I put her on this cute little pink jar I found.
I also found some cute little had ice-cream candies.

She even has her Baskin Robbins pink spoon!  
Hope you like!

Lola Lollipop

Here is a little cutie I colored up using my prismacolor pencils.  I have a thing for craft paper... it just makes the Prisma's pop!  This little girl is Lola Lollipop...she is a retired stamp over at Kraftin Kimmie.
I also have a thing for I did her all in blues.
I wanted her to be an Easter Card, so added the birds and sentiment.

Flower Fairy, Brusho

I got this cute little Flower Fairy over at one of my favorite shops... Kraftin Kimmie.  I colored her up with prismacolor pencils.  You can find her here.
Then, I used some Brusho, that I got over at Stampin Up!  You can find it here.   I used the Brilliant Red and Yellow.  I used the card pack from the occasions catalog.  It is only 10 bucks for 72 of these cards, all different sayings and flowers and birds and such.  I paired this one with the fairy.  I think it looks alright!

To use the bursho, I put water down on the card first, then sprinkled the brusho.  Then to make it run a little more, I spritzed water over the top of the brusho.  Then I let it dry overnight.

Hope you like!
