hello there (waving).
It's that time of year again when we all hunt down new stamps for our Christmas cards and the Aussie store Ericraft Stamps has two new cute reindeer digital stamps available and they are currently on sale (until the next new stamp comes along).

This one is 'Reindeer' which you can find here 

this one is 'Reindeer laying down', which you can find here 

As you can see I have created a card using 'Reindeer'.
I colured the stamp with polychromos pencil on smooth watercolour paper.
The papers are from Kaisercraft as well as the die i used for the holly circle frame.

Be sure to drop by my facebook group today (18th November) as I am giving out a special freebie for all those that join my group. 
There is also a special discount code you can use to get 10% off digi stamps in my store from today, 18th November until the 25th of November.

Thanks for dropping by,
Toodles, Erica

Hi there (waving)

 I released a new digital stamp a couple of weeks ago and it is still currently on sale. The digi is of my awesome dog Toby whom we had to put to sleep a few months back. He was 18yrs old, super furry and cuddly. An all rounder great dog.

I printed my stamp on kraft paper and away i went using my pencils. here you can see the polychromos white and inktense white

Getting into his black collar and eye

Adding fur to his face

Two eyes looking at me :)

Bit of a tip to get really dark black is to go over with indigo and then black on top of that.
you can see here i have used some blending with odourless thinner. It helps get the colour on the card and then i can go over with the pencils.

Onto his front leg

Here he is all coloured. One gorgeous tri coloured border collie :)

I am going to now put this into a frame and hang it in my craft room :)

Thanks for dropping by.

Bunny and Daffodils

Easter is on its way so i had to draw up a sweet little bunny and some flowers to make some cards with. I made the daffodils seperate so customers could layer them with the bunny if they wanted a field of daffodils.
Bunny turned out rather sweet if i may say so myself :p
I coloured the digital stamp with copic markers. It took quite a while to get the fur looking furry.

I used kaisercraft cardstock and patterned paper to make the card and embellished with a couple of stick on pearls.
So here is my first Easter card of the season. Now to decide who i will post it to :)

Thanks for dropping by.

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

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 :)

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.

If you would like to join my stamping group you can here >> ERicraft Stamps facebook group and you can keep up to date with all my new stamps and even share your creations with them

Thanks for stopping by, Erica
