TLC Design's ~ Outdoor Friends ~ A2 sized card

 Hi Friends,

Today I have fun whimsical project today showing off a new TLC Design's stamp set called Outdoor Friends. This adorable set has super cute characters which have just enough space to color them with depth using numerous mediums. I have chosen Spectrum Noir Markers for my coloring today.

As soon as I saw this adorable lady bug I was hooked. I knew I MUST color her. Her little upside down flower tent was too cute as well so I have paired them together for fun scene.

TLC Designs ~ Forrest Pals Slimline Card

 Hi Folks,

How are each of you doing? I have special card to share with you today. Let me introduce you to a BRAND NEW stamp set by TLC Design's named Forrest Pals. Aren't they adorable?????? I just love the sentiment and so very true.... "Happiness IS Real When Shared!!

I asked a friend what she thought of this card and she said "It feels luxurious" What a sweet compliment. Believe it or not this design began with a piece of scrap paper I had left over from a previous project. The brown background is from the Watercolor Naturals Digi Paper Pack in the TLC Designs' Online Store and it inspired the color theme here.

TLC Designs ~ Masking With Multiple Stamp Sets

Hi Friends,

Welcome back to my blog. I have a fun scene card for you today. I was challenged to mix different stamp sets to create a scene so this is what I came up with....


 TLC Design's Supply List:

Toga's and bubbles Stamp Set

Alicorn Happiness Stamp Set 

Simply Sweet Digital Paper Pack 


I got so excited mixing the different stamp sets and masking them all together to make a scene I didn't even think to use some of the TLC dies.... I can't remember the last time I did not use dies in a project. It did feel quite flat to me so I added some fun coordinating trim to the side to give it some texture. I hope you have enjoyed today's project as much as I enjoyed creating it for you. Make sure to check out the Thursday Night live every Thursday where Tammy, the owner of TLC, will be creating magic with some of the newest TLC Designs' products.  Join our Facebook group for all the details.

Crafter's Companion ~ Ornate Cross Featuring Conie Fong's Angel Prayers

 Hi Friends,

I have been having fun with a few of my newly purchased Crafter's Companion items. 

For this card I have used the Sara Signature Rose Gold Collection as inspiration. The stamp is from the Conie Fong Angel Inspiration stamp collection. Lastly I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Classique alcohol markers. Lastly the Ornate Cross Create-a-Card is cut from Rose Gold Foil Paper. Didn't she turn out beautiful???
