Jar with Heart Candy

Hi everyone!  Today I had fun playing with my stash, and have a card to share inspired by some fun challenges.  For this card, I combined images from two different digital set by Doodle Pantry--  Bottles & Jars and Heart Candy Ants.  

Before merging the candies in the jar, I colored each heart  with the help of Microsoft Word.  Then I merged the sentiments on top.  After coloring the jar's lid with Copics, I cut the image out and layered it on top of the heart die-cut with dimensionals.  Embellishments include a Prima flower, lace and a sentiment from MDS.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Bearly Mine Challenge #71 -- Hearts Galore
Shopping Our Stash Challenge 87 -- Valentines, Hearts, Red, Love, etc.  (I used lots of hearts.)
'ABC' Challenges ABC14 -- Valentine's Day

Enjoy the rest of your week.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

A New Baby!

New Beginning are always exciting especially when it's a new baby!  Tomorrow the family is gathering for a baby shower for my niece who is expecting her new little boy in February.  I thought this image by Deidre Mosher Designs would be perfect to make a card to go with my shower gift .  I colored the image with Copics and paper pieced the maternity top.  I incorporated some new dies -- Spellbinders Wonky Reckangles and a Die-Namics Fishtail Flag -- into my design; embellishments include pearls and daisy buttons.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Vintage Tub

Happy Friday!  I have a fun card to share today that showcases a new Doodle Pantry digi -- Vintage Tub.  I thought it would be fun to put something in the tub so I merged one of my favorite DP birdies -- Bird Bath Joy Color Plus  with the vintage tub.  Coloring of the tub was done with Copics and a silver Spica pen.  I also added some digital piecing to the towel.  Although it's not visible in the photo, I colored the bubbles with Copics; then went over the bubbles with clear dimensional glaze for some sparkle and shine.

The birdie is a pre-colored image -- to make it my own I shaded the wings and body with Copics and a silver Spica pen.  The background digi papers are from DP's Baby Basics Color Plus.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Digi Galore Challenge -- Something New (new digi and dies.)
Cute Card Thursday -- New (new image and dies)

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend.  Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
