Hello everyone! Today I have my inspiration creation for Dutch Dare Card Challenge. The sponsor is Karen's Doodles and I used her image called "Relax". The theme is "Pearls & Swirls". I created my background paper using Adobe Photoshop and used swirl brushes. I also used Photoshop to color my image and then cut it out. I really love how you can use layers to achieve a great looking colored image. I drew the shelf and bottles and also colored those   in Photoshop. I cut the pieces out and and added glossy accents to the tops of the bottle and jar. The swirl border was made with one of my Cuttlebug dies. I added some pearls, a sentiment and glitter to complete my inspiration.

Cuddles On Rocking Horse Gift Card & Envelope

Hello again... It is time for another DT Inspiration for The Dutch Dare Card Challenge. The theme this week is "Shaped Cards" and I chose one of my latest Digital Images from my store at Pattie's Creations Digital Stamps called "Cuddles On Rocking Horse". You can purchase my image by clicking on the name. 
I decided to make a shaped gift card for a little girl baby or toddler and a matching envelope. I colored my image using Adobe Fireworks and my copics. I cut out the shapes with my Nestabilities dies and a punch. I added a tiny pink gingham bow and some glitter to my card. I made the envelope using white paper and a contrasting designer paper that I have in my stash. I hope you like this one!

Welcome Little One

Hello everyone... I have a new card for the CDAC Progressive Challenge #17. If you are not a member of CDAC come on over and join in the fun! I created a card for a baby and used this cute little image by Odds and Soxlets. I colored the image using Adobe Photoshop and used one of my own images called "Quilt With Hearts". I used paper piecing on the diaper and rattle and then added some glossy accents for depth. To finish my creation I added my very own sentiment made in Photoshop, a bow and a heart. I hope you like it!

Spring Has Sprung!!!

Hello again. It is time for another of my DT Inspirations for The Dutch Dare Card Challenge. This weeks theme is "Spring Has Sprung" and our sponsor is Bugaboo Digi Stamps. I chose this cute little bird image from Bugaboo and I colored it using Adobe Fireworks. I used papers from my stash and added a piece of ribbon, corner embellishments, flowers, a sentiment and I drew dashes to look like water is coming out of the watering can. I hope you like it!
