Wishing you brighter days!

I promise i will get off of the rain theme for the next make but I couldn't resit colouring this cutie up and putting her on a card :D
And then I saw the gorgeous new Wow! glitters and I just had to team them up with her. So this is really just a 5x7 card and an extra little bit of white card for the frame around her. The borders and the stripe have all been done with the amazing glitters and double sided tape. The glitters I used were Santorini (the blue one) and Celebration (the silver one). For the great little pink blobs I used my other new favorite thing enamel accents. This one is called pink gumball. The rain drop stamps and the sentiment are from Stampin' Up's Weather together set and the main lady is from Kraftin' Kimmie's Look for rainbows set. I coloured her using the following spectrum noir illustrator pens:
Skin: FS6, FS7, FS5, FS8
Hair: Black, BG6, IG2
Jeans: BT9, BT7, TB3
Shoes: BGR1, IG6

I am entering this card for the following challenges:

Playing in the puddles

I had so much fun making this card. I loved playing with the enamel accents but think I could do with more practice :D 
For this card I used a 6x6 card and some green card that I then stamped using Stampin' Up Avant-garden stamp set that is one of the sale-a-bration free sets. The brilliant main girl and the sentiment are from the Kraftin' Kimmie make a splash.

Feeling the love

It is that time of year when all us crafters get all loved up and get asked to create valentines cards and creations. So this month at Crafty Purple Frog we would love to see what you are making. The theme is love. It can be valentines,wedding or any creation for someone you love. 
So here is what I have made. 
I used a 5x5 scalloped card for the base and the pretty roses paper is First editions black out paper. For a touch of texture I added gorgeous red pearls and the image is  the greeting farm Cutesy Anya, coloured with spectrum noir illustrator pens. I put it all together with collall glue and 3D gell to make her stand out from the rest of the card.
The little hearts around the edge and the main sentiment are from stampin' up sealed with love stamp set. If you like Stampin' Up or want to find out more about them I am also a Stampin' Up demo so feel free to get in touch :D
