Bless You

I am from Northern California originally and we had beautiful Hydrangeas blooming.  There is something special about them in my eyes.  I love the color variation and the large hardy leaves.  I have been unable to grow them in the heat of Arizona but still love to reminisce.  Here is my rendition of the Hydrangea stamp

Warm Wishes for that Winter Chill

What a fun stamp to color.  So easy.  The details make it work!  Some pine flicks and a little cone blending and your are done!  But wait...winter cones must have snow so I added a little Ice glitter to finish it off.

MMMMM Pumpkin Seeds!

Its about pumpkin time.  Here are a couple pumpkins sitting in a field waiting to get picked.  I look forward to pumpkin seeds every year.  I colored up "Pumpkin Patch" using Copic Markers.  Because the image has natural shading it is a quick and easy stamp to color up!

Country Harvest

This stamp reminds me of a crate label.  I have seen it colored up like a peach, or you can color it like an apple.  It really begs to be the center of attention on a card don't you think?

Little Nip - Hot Sip

This is a fun way to show a friend you love them.  I love coloring this image and know you will too.  It can be used as coffee, tea, cocoa with a little fluff on top.  If you aren't a huge coloring fan you can even paper piece it with any pattern paper.  I know you will love this stamp!

But now he's all done and peeking out to say, "Hello"

Some Halloween Fun

I wanted a fun way to use this sentiment and I think I figured it out!  Using the Hot Sip, Web Background and Haunting Fun Sentiment it turned out to be just the right fit!

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share a card I made with the Web Background - a must have in my opinion, perfect to be used on its own with just a little sentiment or behind a character of your choice! You can find it HERE for purchase!

I stamped my Web Background and decided to airbrush it using different shades of purple. I paired it with a little ghost (and a spider!), a CC Designs stamp called Ghost Boo :) I fussy cut the ghost and put it on foam squares for a bit of dimension.

Copics used:
Background: V09, 15, 17
Ghost: C0, 1, 3, Y000
Letters: C0, 1, V0000

Thank you for your visit! Happy stamping!

I think this is one of my favorite stamps.  It reminds me of fresh clean air.  Sun shining even when it rains.  It brings a sort of peace amongst the everyday chaos. It wasn't hard to color either because the stamp already has some creative shading in it.  You can find the links to purchase under the PURCHASE tab on the right of the blog.

All Pumped Up

Here is a Christmas card with sas!  Created using the High Heels.  I wanted to practice on making them shine so I left some white when coloring them.  I love the fact that you can color them ANY color.  Perfect for holidays, girlfriend cards...or even a little special card for the hubby...yes, you hear it right...what hubby doesn't want to see you wear heels.  It is at least good for a laugh.

Sitting Pretty

This sweet giraffe is so elegant.  The image was drawn from a photograph I took at the World Wildlife Zoo in Phoenix Arizona.  She was just recently born at the time of photo in 2013.  I love nature and this stamp fits nicely on any background or foreground you want to add it to.

Near the Sea

I got the once in a lifetime experience to travel to Mexico at the same time a group was doing the release of the baby sea turtles.  This was drawn from a photograph I took on that very special day.  I will cherish the moment forever.

Flames ~ Y15, YR23
Pine cones ~ E35, E57

Wonderful Winter

Happy Hello's
I've had this colored up waiting for me to put on a card for too long
I just didn't know how I wanted it to work.
Don't you just hate it when your mojo goes a missing?
Today, I was determined to do something creative and it was time to
Get er done!!!
Here is my
Colors used:
YG99, 97, 95, 93
C7, 5, 3, 1
E57, 13, 30
Background sprayed in BV0000
The fabulous Miss Dove teased me about not having glitter and to be honest,
when I went to card it, It needed glitter.
Always listen to the master.
So, I stole her idea and added Diamond Dust
I also sprinkled some silver and blue glitter embossing powder with a bit of white frantage.
Dies that I've used are BDZ stiched flags two

Sending Smiles

Hi Everyone,

Just popping in to share a card Zoe (with Make It Crafty) made with the gorgeous Lilac & Butterfly stamp

She carefully masked and stamped it around the edge of the card to create a corner of flowers. The hardest part was trying to make sure she didn't stamp the butterfly more than once so she did a few practice attempts on scrap paper first.

She coloured the image with copic markers and added some wink of stella to the butterfly at the end. Nice clean simple design. 

The end results are magnificent don't you think?!!

(Thank you Zoe for sharing your creations with us)

I needed to create a card which had to include an image of fruit or vegetables. DoveArt Studios sprang to mind immediately, as there are two Stamps which would be appropriate. Harvest Delight, or, Pumpkin Patch, which, as you've probably guessed, is the one I chose to use!
