New image from Coloring book #2 from Lacy Sunshine Stamps-Working on Christmas cards!

It's been a great time at Lacy Sunshine Stamps because the owner, Heather Valentin, has been creating digital images up a storm for her teams and you her customers!  This cutie pie is called Emmi Loo Boo Snow Day fun and it's intricate but fun to color!  She's found individually as well in a coloring book set of 6 images in the store.  It could have just been a field of snow in the background but I chose to make it a frozen lake.  I used a lily white fine glitter called Sugar Coatings that I have had for ages.  BUT, the neat thing is that Lacy Sunshine also has multiple fine glitters in the store in several color choices.  Try them out when you can.  Using a satin ribbon, I wrapped a bank of it through the card and stuck a double looped bow on top of it.  *Notice that there are 2 icicles hanging from the bow? Some tiny white buttons and some liquid pearl for the trees accent the rest of the card.  On the inside I used my script die cut for Merry Christmas and then stamped a sentiment from Stampabilities.  Hope you like and get working on your cards.

Using Florina from Art by Miran for my DT Submission Post!

 I've been privledged to serve on several Design Teams during the years and every so often was thrilled that the sponsor would be Art by Miran!  Ohhh to get my hands on those wonderful images.  Always artistic and graceful, they just put a smile on my face and were a joy to place on my projects!
This is one that I've particularly enjoyed coloring called Florina.  While she is definitely the focal point of the card, I wanted to use colors that would compliment her. On the inside of the card, again a beautiful floral print-great for a Birthday card and Florina's gorgeous green eyes.
The reason that I'm posting this digital from the past is that this great site is announcing a DT call and I would like to be considered.  Their images are always beautiful and would be a joy to work with-I feel that it would be a privilege to showcase them on any of my projects.  Hopefully, they will think I'm worthy of joining their group!  Thanks for visiting my blogspot!

Always Anything Goes at Craft your Passion--Last one for the year-come join us!!

 I'm featuring a stamp set from DeeDee's Digis shop this post--called Gingerbread Holidays.  It's for Craft Your Passion where this post will be the last one for the year.  This challenge is Always Anything Goes and we'd like you to join us!!
With Gingerbread Holidays, You not only get your b&w images but pre-colored ones as well so that you can layer them as png's.  I used the backgrounds that I already had from a freebie to make the green bg and then slimmed down the red & white striped one to make it like a ribbon.  I fancy cut the 2 gingerbread figures and used dots to elevate them.  On the inside I did much the same method and used sentiments that come with the set on the inside and outside.

It's Christmas Time at Lacy Sunshine Stamps~Celebrating with "Sugi Toy Soldier"

 I'm so happy to showcase one of the great images in the Lacy Sunshine Stamps collections--Featuring "Sugi".  This one is called Sugi Toy Soldier and I colored her Rich in the glorious colors of Christmas.
Usually you would see the uniform done in the reds and greens of the Holidays but, when I saw this, I thought of black velvet and shimmering gold voile.  I put some Wink of Stella on the gown's petals and then used a gold metallic pen on the shoulder braids.
The background is done by coloring with a couple shades of blue copic and then, using a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol I dotted the wet tip all over the blue.  The more I let it rest in the spot, the larger circle it made.  A friend shared that technique with me and I really like the effect.  White chunky Frantage was used as the snowflake effect.
For the base of the card, I used a rich specialty "red velvet" paper
from Hot off the Press-SO scrumptious. For the mat behind Sugi, I used a great plaid on top of a deep green.  I placed red faceted buttons on the corners, wrapped the matted image with white sheer ribbon and tucked a border die cut of evergreen boughs under one edge after spraying it with an iridescent spray.  On the inside, I used the red velvet and plaid as the background for the Joy die cut.
I have so enjoyed this month of celebration of Christmas at Lacy Sunshine Stamps.  There are SO MANY Christmas digi images in their store to use on your projects.  They are bound to put a smile on your face and who doesn't want to start the day like that!  Hope to see your creations soon!

Christmastime at Lacy Sunshine Stamps! Bargains in the Store!

 I'm so in love with this wonderful image for Christmas from Lacy Sunshine Stamps!!  The image is called Eleanor and Pickles Decking the Halls.  I love using pinks and silver for the Holidays and this was my perfect chance.
I used some gorgeous pink and silver foil snowflake printed paper from Kaisercraft over top of a shimmery pink mat called Azalea from The Paper Cut.  BUT, it was all in an attempt to Showcase this adorable digital!  Eleanor and Pickles are surely in a Festive Mood!  Heather Valentin, the owner of Lacy Sunshine Stamps, designs images with deep folds and luscious hair so it gives you opportunities to do some realistic folds etc.  I accented each corner with a snowflake brad and used a snowflake die cut from a Memory Box die, angled it in the corners and topped it with a row of baby rhinestones.  On the inside, I used some sheet music paper and placed some silver foil die cuts saying Merry Christmas.
I urge all of you that aren't aware of the VAST image library you can find at Lacy Sunshine stamps that you hurry and visit!  There's a new launch of a coloring book with her images that's quite a bargain!
