Inky Paws Challenge Card 2 - My First Floral Card

Hey there everyone! Heidi here with another entry for the Inky Paws Challenge No. 17
I got to tell you, that my thing are critters, I have never been into floral stamps, until now.
This is how it happened: I bought this cute stamp set called "Wild Child" by Newton's Nook, because it has all the baby animals with their mother or fathers, I thought I could paired with the sentiments from the  "Love grows" stamp set, but I totally overlook the flowers. Also recently I bought my water colors and I love the look of water colored flowers when people apply water colors in a very random way, it gives a natural, and delicate look.I just like the idea that there is not right or wrong with this type of watercoloring!
I watched quite a few videos of water coloring on YouTube, because I am an inexperience person when it comes to water-coloring. This is also the first time I typed and printed a sentiment, I got inspired by the stamp name "Love Grows" and I used the "Script MT Bold" font.
I really hope you'll like this card.

Love Grows stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs, Heart shape stackable die, scallop frame and stitched banner from the blue prints Dienamics No. 20, water colors, limeade cardstock by MFT, water color paper by Ranger. white embossing powder by Wow, white cardstock by Bazzil,

Inky Paws Challenge - Love U

Welcome back everybody, I've been gone for a little while, (about a week). My son's birthday was last week and we had a party for him last weekend, I was so busy making and arranging things for the party. He had a great time and that's what really matters. At the end of the day my husband and I were wore out.

Today I am sharing with you something that is new to me, you know I try hard to stay within a few brands to keep the cost of this lovely hobby to a minimum (yeah right!) but, you also know that if I see kittens, and puppies, I can't resist it, so it happened that I came across some adorable stamps: Newton's Nook designs, lots of cute kittens, puppies and other cute animals, which I couldn't resist! (of course)
Any how, I placed my first order, which it shipped lightning fast and I decided to enter in their Inky paws challenge No. 17 which it's about using a heart shape, or heart shapes on your project.
This card will be a great Valentine from a kid! Newton's Nook have adorable stamps, my wish list is basically as big as what they offer, but this is what I have for now. I believe this stamp set is so versatile, and cute, so that is why I decided to order it. They also have cute free digital images if you want to entered the challenge or just color them, or make a cute card.
Here is my take on this challenge I hope you'll enjoy it!

Lawnscaping Challenge No. 97 Love warms the heart

Hi! welcome back to another post for the great Lawnscaping Challenge, this is the first challenge of 2015. 
I was looking at the beautiful pictures on this badge I thought of so many winter cards that I made last year, I stared to look at them, and I saw one with the bunnies with the heart, I love those bunnies. Also, I had all the stamps from yesterday's card still on table and I thought how great those bunnies would look with yesterday's sentiment, then, I saw this new love die that I just got in the mail, and I thought: well let's try the three together, and I liked the result. I was aiming for as much CAS as I could, but you know how hard that is, right? So I did my best. I hope you'll like it.
all the supplies listed below.

Snow day stamp set and coordinated die, love script die, stitched hillside border dies, small stitched rectangle stackables, frosty friends stamps set (sentiment), snow day 12x12 paper collection, all by Lawn Fawn. Assorted Copic markers, falling snow stencil by SSS, white and aqua cardstock, Copic friendly cardstock.

Friends warm the heart card!

HI, everybody, Heidi here with a new winter card. I was looking at some winter images for inspiration for some challenges and I thought how much my fur babies like to go outside and play, except this time of the year, (kind like their mommy). This time of the year my fur babies like to curl by the fire place, they both had learned to share this warm spot as well as other things. My pets really warm my heart!
I choose all this colors of Copic markers, for the simple reason that they are similar to my pets, and my house colors, such as the carpet, etc. 
 I'm going to enter this card to one of my favorite online store's blog challenge: Marker POP Challenge No. 60 Anything goes, because there is a lot of Copic coloring in this card.
I hope you'll really enjoy it.
Supplies below.

Cozy Christmas stamp set (fire place), Critters at the dog park stamp set (dog mirrored & paw backgraund), Spooktacular stamp set (cat), Critters in the Arctic stamp set (scarf, hat), Love you s'more stamp set (bonfire), Making frosty friends stamp set (sentiment), small stitched rectangles stackables, all by Lawn Fawn.

Back to Bloggin: For the Love of pets!

Hey everybody, welcome back to my blog. I took a long brake because I had lots of things going on for the holidays! I hope you and your family had a terrific time! I also wish you a great year in all aspects especially crafting!
I don't have a card for you today, although I had some already made, that I need to share here on my blog. I just wanted to talk a little bit about pets. I have been paying attention to the new releases coming this year from some of my favorite brands, and I noted various stamp sets with pets, and other animals, I'm just thrilled, I love them!  Pets are our companions and some of us think of them as family. They have feelings and expressions that make us happy and sometimes brake our hearts. I really love my pets and all animals in general. I seen lots of crafters who keep a pet bed in their craft room for their pets, I do have one in my craft room, that my dog and cat share from time to time. I enjoy my pet's company while I craft.
I love the new stamp sets that are coming this season, they are a real tribute to our best friends.
Here are some pictures of my babies that I wanted to share with you, and also some of my favorite stamps featuring pets and other animals. I hope you'll enjoying them, please let me know which ones are your favorites.

This is Cristiano, (after the soccer player) he has some Siamese on him and part calico very gentle nature, I have never heard this cat hiss, I thought he would the day we brought the puppy, but he didn't. 
And this is Bialowsky (named by my son after a book's character) he is half Pug and half Chihuahua.
I always said he is a kid trapped in a dogs body!
