I am blessed today to be sharing with you a card created from one of the newest Whimsy & Stars Studio images - Ribbon Girl.  I am sure that each of us have friends and/or family members who have been affected by breast cancer.  With Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) just around the corner, I am going to make several of these cards to share with my friends who have survived or are battling this awful disease. . .

And here is a close-up. . .

This image is also available in a sweet little Ribbon Boy.  Please keep in mind that these images can be used for many occasions - military, Alzheimer's awareness, autism, diabetes, cervical cancer and others.  Just think about those issues that are close to home for you and how a card made with either of these images could bless someone who is struggling. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I will be back next month with some more fun creations!

Best "Witches" {Halloween Card by Lesley Croghan}

Fall is close at hand and with it comes some lovely holidays! Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas! I love the Fall time of year for the rich, earthy colours and the festivity of HALLOWEEN!! Today I am sharing a card I made using one of Mabelle's sweet digis called Halloween Girl! I love this little witch!

Instant Download Digital Stamp: Halloween Girl

I used some sticker stitches and some other stickers for the sentiments. I coloured this sweet image with my Copic Markers. Then I added some designer papers and a couple of embellishments. Halloween is a fun time for cards!! Have you thought about making a couple of Halloween cards for your friends and family?

Thanks for stopping by!

Garden Joy

Happy Saturday everyone! Debra here. Mabelle asked me to be a guest designer this month and I was thrilled to create a few cards with her super sweet images.
The image I used today is Garden Joy - so love it.  When I colored this image, I was preparing to teach a beginners Copic coloring class, so I was going through all my books to refresh my memory of all the different techniques.  It has been a couple years.

Cross-hatching kind of jumped out at me, as a technique I haven't used in quite awhile and perfect for her hat to create some texture.   Little did I know at the time that I would end up using 5 patterned papers on this card.  LOL!  I think that is a record for me. 
Supplies --

Patterned Papers: Doodlebug Designs Flower Box
Copic Colors: E00, E09, E11, E13, E21, E33, E35, E37, R02, RV23, RV25, RV29, YR02, YR04, YR06, YG11, YG13, YG17, YG23, Y32, Y35, YR23.

It was wonderful being a guest designer this month.
Thanks so much for stopping by, 
Blessings to you...

Hi everyone!  It's Audrey from the DT here with you today.  I hope you are all having a fabulous week.  My kids went back to school this week, which I thought would give me more "free" time, but it has actually been a super busy week getting all their forms and beginning of the year stuff sorted!

Anyway, today I am sharing Flowery Gifty which you can find at WHIMSY AND STARS STUDIO SHOP and it's available for Instant Download - woo hoo!!  I adore this image and knew I just had to have it when I saw it in the shop.  Of course, that is true of all Mabelle's images:)

I have colored this sweetie with Copics and cut her out with scissors then attached to Nestie cut out.  DP has been in my stash forever, but I am not sure where it is from.  Ribbon is seam binding and I have tied bow using my Bow Easy.  Sentiment is from My Craft Spot, cut with Nestie and bling from Darice added.  Sure hope you like it!   Flowery Gifty and all the other of Mabelle's FABULOUS images are available at WHIMSY AND STARS STUDIO SHOP.
