Beautiful Lilly

Hello MoonFlower fans!  I have some inspiration for you today as well as some news so I hope you are ready!

This is Lilly the Dancing Princess and you can find her in the shop now.  I colored her with Copic markers and cut her out using the Silhouette Cameo.  She is such a gorgeous digi from her amazing eyes and flowing hair to her beautiful layered gown.  She was a challenge to color and I enjoyed every minute of it.  She has gold Wink of Stella on her crown for some gorgeous sparkle as well as a sparkly die cut behind her.

The great news about this image is it is being used in a class at Kit and Clowder that will be offered for just one more day!  Moonflower sponsored the monthly class and if you sign up, you get a coupon code for 50% off of this image.  There is another gorgeous image for the pencils class (this is the markers) so why not sign up for both!  You get a little bit of a discount if you do.  I purchased the class because the class image has a gorgeous sequins layer to the gown.  I NEED to know how to do that!  Alyce breaks down all the techniques step by step so you don't need to be a pro to color this image.

If you take the class, we would love to see how your image turned out.  Pop over to the MoonFlower group on Facebook and show it off!

I used Rose Unicorn for my project and colored it with Copic markers.  I added a little silver Wink of Stella to the horn and the hooves.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the image.  The sentiment is from Rubbernecker Stamps' Discovery Words stamp set.

What a Gem!

This week at the Crafty Gals Corner we want you to play Bingo with us.  Pick any horizontal, vertical or diagonal line below and use those elements on your project.

Image may contain: text

My line was Ribbon, the free space and pearls.  I used Jewel Baby Dragon from Wink Wink Ink for my project.

I colored this sweet little dragon with Copic markers and cut it out using the Silhouette.  I thought a good sentiment for this card could be "You are such a gem!".  It could make a super cute thank you card.

Beautiful Butterflies

This week at Crafty Sentiments our challenge is to add pearls or gems (strass).  Make it beautifully blingy or just a touch of sparkle and shine.  It is completely up to you.

For my project, I chose to use I Love Butterflies.  I colored this sweet girl with Copic markers and cut her out by hand.  I added a few dots of white gel pen to the butterflies to give them a little bit of pattern and to tie them in with the polka dots on her hat.

You have a chance to win Crafty Sentiments Designs prizes for playing along.  The awesome news is if you use a Crafty Sentiments image or stamp, you can win even more!

Come play with us!

Hang Ten

Welcome to the newest Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday post.  For my project, I decided to have a little summer fun.

I have admired Jeremiah Kentner digital stamps for a very long time.  However, I have never gotten around to actually adding any to my collection.  I see them and tell myself, "Self, you have got to get some of those!"  Then, I never seem to actually do it.  Lucky for me, Crafts and Me is our sponsor for this Li'l Patch of Crafty Friends challenge!  I finally got a chance to color this gorgeous digital stamp!

This is Spirals.  This was the first digital stamp of Jeremiah Kentner's that I ever saw.  He has so many gorgeous image.  Pop on over to Crafts and Me to check them all out.  I colored the image with Copic markers and used the Silhouette to cut it out.  I used a Spica pen on the spiral to give it some gorgeous sparkle.

For my featured post on the Rubbernecker Stamps blog, I chose to create a birthday card. I never have enough on-hand, so it is always nice to create one when I can.

I chose Daisies as the focal point of my card. I thought they would make a sweet and simple birthday card.  I colored the stamp with COPIC markers. I traced an oval die around the image and cut it out by hand leaving the flowers outside of the oval shape. I used the Best Friends Etc set for the sentiment and stamped it directly on the white ribbon with StāzOn ink.  A few simple embellishments and it was finished.

Be sure to join in on our current challenge. You can win cash for the store. While you are on the blog, check to see if Rubbernecker Stamps will be at a show near you!
