Hello out there (waving)
Ericraft Stamps has a new release digital stamp called 'Hum'.
You can grab it on sale for a limited time via my etsy store >> Hum digital stamp www.etsy.com/au/shop/EricraftShop

I decided to colour the stamp with pencils and wanted the roses to match the paper i was going to use on my creation. You can see the polychromo pencils i selected to colour the first rose in the photo.

Here are the roses all coloured in. Nice huh?

I have finished the image by colouring in the Humming bird and the roses leaves.
I hand cut it out and...

attached it to the front of an easel card which i then attached to a small drawer box.

The cardstock i used was from Kaisercraft as well as the patterned paper. The paper pad is called "All that glitters" and has some gorgeous gold foil patterned papers and pink rose patterned papers. The little sentiment also came with the paper pad.
I finished off the drawer with a kaisercraft pearl brad and some gold and white twin from Whimsy Farm Twine which has some amazing colours of twine available in Australia ( i have quite a collection of their twine).

Now i have to find someone who would love this little drawer card :)

Thanks for dropping by.

It is coming up to mother's day here in Australia. May 14th to be exact, so I thought I would design a new image for those cards for our wonderful mums.
So here is 'Hugs'.
Hugs are so special especially from our mum in those tough times we all encounter. Nothing beats a loving hug from mum.
You can purchase this digital stamp here >>Hugs and for a limited time it is also half price :)

I have coloured 'Hugs' with copic markers and used a bit of coloured pencil in the hair to give a few more details.
The sentiment is computer generated and flowers are from I am roses.

BBQ Santa

Christmas is coming so I thought I better get some digital stamps made ready to use on some cards this year. It is so hard to find Christmas stamps to suit Aussie Christmas. It is usually hot, people celebrate at the beach and my family always have a BBQ with our family and friends so I figured yep a BBQ Santa image would be perfect. So here he is 'BBQ Santa' which you can purchase from my etsy store now
Got to have an esky to keep the drinks cool and blue is the usually colour of these

Santa has managed to get a little sunburnt while down under

A lovely green santa sack full of gifts

Not Christmas without our fellow companion, our dog. I have gone for a Kelpie breed here.

Here is the finished card. i mounted it on kaisercraft cardstock and the pattern paper is also from kaisercraft 'christmas basecoat' with lovely native foliage. I used my own initiative and cut out some gum leaf shapes and made teeny tiny gum blossoms. Stuck a couple of star buttons on and tada.
'Christmas is in the air when it is in our hearts'

Love in a mist

Tada! My latest digital stamp is now in my etsy store
This digital stamp is called 'Love in a mist'. It is Spring in Australia and we have these pretty flowers blooming all throughout our front garden.
I coloured the stamp with copics and finished off with some details using pencil. I popped it onto a butterfly fold card and added some little white flowers and leaves.
This card is heading off to my mother in law for her birthday. Fingers crossed she loves it ;)

You can see a tutorial video I posted about creating this card. it is on my Ericraft Stamps facebook page. This is the link >> https://www.facebook.com/groups/Ericraft/
