I printed this little cutie out twice. The main image was cut out and colored with Copics. The other image I used just cut out the acorns and the squirrels paws and bundle of acorns. I, popped out the paws and attached them to the main image. I glue on extra acorn down and raised up the other two. I should have taken a pic showing the dimension, but, alas, I didn't. Use your imagination. lol. I found some great papers to create my layers. I attached my squirrel to my oval die cut and attached it to the card. I created the sentiment banner and popped it out. The sentiment is an old one from A*muse.

So glad to have Newton's Nook as our sponsor this week! I love their stamps and dies and I'm sure you will too!
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
I love this little Newton coffee stamp set. I stamped two images, one for my main white card front, and cut out the mug and paw from the other one of them. Using a circle die cut and some gingham cardstock, I created my "table cloth." I colored everything with Copics and glued the table cloth onto the card front. The mug and paw were attached using pop dots. The putting together of my layers and stamping my sentiment completed the card.

Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
Sparkle n Sprinkle have such adorable images, whether you like cutesie or lovely, they have you covered! I printed the jar and cut out the center. I then attached some acetate to create the finished jar. I colored everything with Copics and fussy cut the funny little bug. If only the bugs we really do catch were that cute. lol. I attached the bug, using mounting tape, to a piece of white cardstock. I added double layer mounting tape to the jar and attached it over the bug on the white paper. Then I cut it out and glued it to an embossed piece of white. Then I completed the rest of my layers. I made a little banner from the sentiment and glued it to the jar.

So glad to have Bugaboo as our sponsor this week!
They always have such fun images to play with!! 
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
The darling image was colored using Copic markers and the water was colored with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. Such a lovely shimmer those pens make. A white pen was used to add a little highlighting to the water.
 
Some coordinating background paper was picked and a bit of twine around the image then assembled. The tiny sentiment is from FSJ, as were the little dot embellishments!

Crafter's Companion Addiction

Ah, yes, I do LOVE Crafter's Companion products and I KNOW you will too. This is a card made using CC products. 
This was SO EASY to create and it looks like a million bucks!  The paper really took this card to the next level. I added a few, ink edged, die cut poinsettias and a die cut sentiment on a piece of embossed cardstock. I even used my Spectrum Noir markers to color my clear rhinestones to match. Such fun!
 
These are the products used. Look for them at Crafter's Companion or HSN.

So glad to have Newton's Nook as our sponsor this week!
We sure do love our amazing sponsors. 
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
Newton's Nook's stamps always make me happy! They have wonderful die cuts too, although I did fussy cut out these images for my card today. I used my Copics to color. Then, after deciding what background cardstock to use I sorted through my die cuts. I think they came from multiple suppliers. lol I paper pieced the little banner and decided on a layout for my card. I raised the bunny and bear for dimension. To complete the card I stamped the sentiment. 
Ta Daaaaaa!

So glad to have Polkadoodles as our sponsor this week!
We sure to love our amazing sponsors. 
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
This was such a cute image. So very different and certainly fun to get creative with. I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to color my image, except for the feather. I used Spectrum Noir markers for that. The background was created with glossy cardstock and alcohol inks, spritzed with blending solution and then I took a Gold Leafing pen to get the gold shimmers. I mounted it on Gold Luxury Mirrored cardstock from Crafter's Companion. The sentiment is also from Crafter's Companion. The sentiment was perfect for this sweet image from Polkadoodles! I added a couple of blings for some added dimension.
