Hi everyone!! I'm sorry my post is late, but I hope you'll forgive me once you see this GORGEOUS stamp...hopefully worth the wait. I know I'm on the digi team but I've got some fabulous rubber from Crafts and Me as well that I just HAD to share with you today. I stamped this image off for my daughters and well, she was too tempting NOT to color up so I stamped one off for me as well! This is Adrianna:

I told you she was gorgeous!! I just love coloring all that hair! I used copics with a touch of prisma colored pencils to darken the shadows. On her tail, I used the coloreless blender to add scales and took my white gel pen to dab in the middle. I cannot wait to get my hands on some Copic Opaque white because I know that will be some fun stuff to play with!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be on time next week. :)

Fragile Heart

Morning Peeps,

Yayyyyyyy, it's Friday and my mojo is back. Good job really as I have so many DT cards to do and lot's of exciting stuff coming your way, including a blog hop, so watch this space as they say.... I've nearly finished my craft sort out in my room and I have to say I am loving my tidy craft room and I am doing very well at tidying up after me, well so far any way.

Right, as it's so late and I need my sleep this is a quick post. I have used the Crafts and Me "Fragile Heart" by Hannah Lynn. I just love these flowing hair stamps, really great for all levels of crafter but you can really get to grips with your colouring and I have given her some pink shades of hair. Isn't she beautiful.

I have used the "Cherish" Martha Stewart Punch around the page. This looks lovely in reality as you have all the sea through holes.

A close up of this beautiful stamp.

Fragile Heart available HERE at Crafts and Me

Pink Lighting, Not So Pink

Hi everyone. Angela here and today is my day to share my creation with you. I used one of my favorite stamps by one of my favorite Artist, "Pink Lighting" by Jasmine Beckett-Griffith. I wanted to make this card for my daughter and use her favorite colors Black and Teal, but I added a touch of cream.

Here is a close up of the colored image.

I love this image and those little rolls in of her hair and those beautiful butterfly wings.

Here are the Copic colors I used to color her.
Skin: YR000,YR0000,E50,E01,E11
Hair: E50,E53,YR30,E23,E33,E17,E25,E49 and E29
Teal/Aquas- BG0000,BG11,BG13,BG49

Well I hope you enjoyed my creation. I have the hardest time getting a good pic when it comes to black and reds. I think it makes the skin look washed out.
Well thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a great week and weekend.
Don't forget to enter our challenge this week anything goes

If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It!

Morning everyone,
I would like to welcome our fabulous new D.T Sylvia. I was so happy that Sylvia said yes to joining us merry bunch of D.Ts. With her variety of cardmaking skills Sylvia will fit in perfectly, and will be a lovely asset to Crafts and Me, the team and the blogs.

Here's a little Bio from Sylvia followed by her 1st post

Hi everyone! I'm Sylvia, 42 years old and I am living with my beloved DH and my four sons (aged 18, 17, 8 and 6 years) in the wonderful South of the Black Forest (Germany). There are also two dogs belonging to our family who are both Search and Rescue dogs in the German Red Cross with DH and me as their handlers. As you probably can figure, my life sometimes is a little bit busy and hectic ;-) My 'therapy' to relax is stamping, colouring and creating cards! I enjoy colouring with my Tombow markers and watercolor pencils.
I'm super excited to be on such a fabulous team and be able to work with all the wonderful Crafts and Me stamps!


Hi everyone, Sylvia here being totally thrilled to write my very first post as a new D.T of Crafts and Me!
Thanks Teresa for your sweet intro! I'm still soooo very excited to be part of this wonderful team, as from now!

As an 'intro' I would like to show you some cards I made with Crafts and Me stamps.
(please click on the image to view in full size!)

I used the adorable stamp 'Thumbelina Faith' designed by Sara Burrier for Crafts and Me Stamps to create this card. I just HAD TO use the sentiment 'if you can dream it, you can do it' because I thought this is just perfect in two ways: I thought it fit's this fantas(y)tic image so very well AND it's exactly what I felt when I got Teresa's message that she wants me to be on her D.T :)

So.. what are YOU waiting for.. dream it... and DO it :)

But wait.. I have two more cards that I want to share with you.
You might have seen them on my blog, because I did them some time ago with two of the wonderful digi stamps that Crafts and Me are offering!

I used 'Hidden Treasures' by artist Hannah Lynn to create this card:
(please click on the image to view in full size!)

Isn't the mermaid just adorable! I totally LOVE this wonderful and detailed stamp!!!
Here's an additional close up of the coloured image itself:

For the next card, I used 'The Infinite Star' by artist Sara Burrier:
(please click on the image to view in full size!)

More close up pictures can be found on my blog HERE

Wishing you all a fabulous Wednesday and have a wonderful, creative week!

Petal Melody

Hello all you lovely peeps how are you all today? Did you all have a nice weekend? Well my daughter is back at school today after being off for the last 2 weeks........hopefully she will cope well & they wont push her too hard especially physio.
Anyway how are you liking the digi team girls they are fantastic aren't they?
Well its the rubbah girls this week.....that does sound funny when you say it makes my hubby laugh every time lol.
Today I am showing you 'Petal Melody' by Lemon Shortbread which is exclusive to Crafts & Me only you can find her & her friends here.
Here is my version of her.....

As you can see the weather is beautiful up here along the coast so I took advantage & took the photo's outside. She is coloured with Copics.....unfortunately I dont have the colours used I kept them out so I would write the list down but then yesterday I sorted a new storage solution for my pens as I needed something to hold my Copics & my Promarkers & being mobile. I will put piccy's on my blog soon.
Speaking of Promarkers Teresa has them in the store now so pop on over here to take a peek.

The bottom edge of the card I did myself I was playing over the weekend to give my cards a fancy edge lol.

The inside is decorated to compliment the front. For the actual layout I followed a sketch.

Here she is in all her glory.........she is soooo pretty & an absolute dream to colour she will be used often because she is perfect for so many occasions I think.
I also want to show you the card I made for the challenge last week just incase you havnt seen them.
Here is 'Pink Lightning' by Jasmine Beckett-Griffith available here.

....Yes I know she is more like pink & blue lightning. Let me tell you she is a joy to colour, she has become my favourite stamp. As I'm on quite a few DT's I see quite a few of these stamps on my travels & its fabulous to see them done in all their different ways.....they really do suit any colour scheme & any type card from bright & colourful to soft & pastel..... These are so soooo easy to colour I didnt want to stop colouring this one it was like the pen just flowed.......if that makes sense.

She has stickles added to her wings.

I finally got around to make a twisted easel card I cant believe how easy these are.....they really are so simple to make.
Teresa has had new stock in so as well as some fabulous Promarkers she also has the new Kraftin Kimmie stamps as well. She will also be getting some new sweet pea stamps so you will want to keep your eyes open for them as well.
Remember the stamps I've shown here are exclusive to Crafts & Me only.
Pop over to the challenge blog & join in the fun there we are now a weekly challenge with prizes every week. Also for this week Teresa is celebrating so another person chosen by random will win 8 digi images.....yes 8 so why not pop along & join in after all you have to be in it to win it.
Well thats all from me I will leave you in peace now lol enjoy the rest of your day.
Thank you so much for stopping by us girls do love to see you here.
Take care
