BC Dzyns Hey Chica!

A day late and a dollar short.

I was suppose to post this yesterday :C But my Internet was not working. Since I didn’t pre-post I am here today squeezing it in.

This Hey Chica is a new line illustrated by Chesney Young! You may remember that I made everyone go check out cards done by drawing from this woman, on my dear friend Holly’s blog! Well, Chesney is Holly’s daughter! She is so super talented. I am just thrilled that Kim from MFT scooped her up, and got her super hot girls put into stamps so we can all enjoy her drawings. Holly you must be so proud!!

Now with collaboration from Kim’s daughter Brianna, they together created a hot new line called BC Dzyns!! I am really excited by this. I love it.

I think this Chic is super hot, so I decided their brand logo would be a cute tattoo. I know there are a million ways she can be colored, but I just wanted the POP of her red lips. I then colored my flowers on my B&W patterned paper (by Imaginesce) red as well. Very modern Marilyn Monroe-ish.

I like the layout of this too. I need to make more card with this chic soon.

Now moving on……………Branch Out


Thoughts of you.

OK so we are moving into fall and I want to be in Spring!

This year tress are hot. There are so many cool varieties of images, I just love it. This set has images that allow you to build your tree for every season.

This was my take on it. I like the clean and simple design of this. 2-step images are the BEST for making a quick and simple, yet thoughtful card.

For those of you who LOVE fall………… now we have a Happy Fall card.


Not so Scary

Are you noticing a trend?

I didn’t realize I had been tearing so much cardstock lately! I thought “tearing” was so out! Well not to me, anymore. I realize I have been doing this on many recent creations (more to come). This one is more distressed, less “clean”. Again, I love that layout. This paper is an oldie but goodie from Stampin Up! Perfect fall paper.

I love the little owl perched on his arm. SO CUTE!
