Winter theme Bestie

Here's a darling card today using a beautiful stamp from Sherri Baldy.  Her store is called My Besties and she makes the cutest little girl stamps and wonderful coloring books!  Check out her amazing site HERE: http://www.mybestiesshop.com/store/c1/Featured_Products.html

The contest over on the SSS Challenge blog this week is to create a winter theme card, drop by the SSS Challenge blog and share your best Sherri Baldy creations and you could win some wonderful stamps from her!

Questions of the day:  Do you like big eye stamps?  Little girl stamps?  what type do you prefer?

My husband tells me that some stamps look a little creepy to him including those that don't have noses or mouths (Like Magnolia or Gorjuss Girls).  I just LOVE those stamps!

What a cute card! It reminds me of my granddaughter walking around the house in winter. She loves her hat and boots! I haven’t used stamps like this before - am intimidated by the coloring.

Love the big eye little girl when you do it. I dont know that i have a favorite thing to stamp. It all depends on the day

Great job on your card.  Especially love the lace you used.  I don't use people on my cards.  Not a big fan of big eyes.

I love the big eye stamps, the little girl stamps no no nose or mouth stamps. My kids have said my Magnolia girls look creepy but it has never stopped me from using them. I just tell them thT they are angels and don’t need the nose or mouth. That’s the explanation I was given.

Great card Holley, I love gorguss girls and magnolia

I like seeing Big Eye creations that others make but not inspired to create with them myself! I prefer color layering Florals and other images most of all! Especially from Altenew and Hero Arts! TFS!

vinita jain said...

Aww, she is so pretty and you gave to her life with your beautiful coloring! Yes I am very fond of Big eyes character images. I have some Saturated Canary girly images!

Another beauty!
I am not really into using people on my cards, since I am not good at coloring them. So I don't like big eyes on people, but I think they can be cute on animals :)

You always color these girls perfectly but I'm just terrible at it! I actually like the Gorjus girls because they are fairly simple and a bit easier to color. However, I don't care for big-eyed girls or girls with long eye-lashes. I prefer either more realistic or plain looking images.

ionabunny said...

I have some sherri baldy real stamps. I quite like the wide eye look, although I love gorjuss as well. Beautiful card. HUgz

papersmiles said...

Yep, I like Big Eye people stamps and this a a great "girly girl" image. Hugs, Barbara

I absolutely adore what you do with all these super cute images you find, but I don't really do people much. When I do, I prefer them to be one of three things. Either very realistic, Zetti like Teesha Moore's creations or freaky like the ones from Daniel Torrente at Stampotique. Today's card is another hit btw! That lace is just too gorgeous for words!

Hi Holley - I love them all! I just wish I could color like you! I thought you had a link to coloring instructions. Can you post it? I love the big eye girls, cute stamps for kid birthday- dogs and cats, too.

Adorable! This card reminds me of my granddaughter- she loves her hats and boots. Both big eye and little girl stamps are cute. I haven’t used any - probably because I’m challenged in the painting department- haha.

Amy Martin said...

Adorable card!!!. I love Sherry Baldy stamps. They are so cute!! So I probably have to say I like the big eyes but I never have used her stamps because they were digi.

sherry Brown said...

She has clear stamps also Amy. :)

jackiep said...

a lovely wintery girl and for myself i dont like the big eyes for myself, but love what others do with them

Sindhu said...

Lovely card...I choose little girl stamps...

Christine Telega said...

Perfect card as always. I do not like the big eye stamps.

Jean said...

This is very fun. I like her eyes. The Sassy pants are so cute. I also prefer real stamps to digital.

DonnaMundinger said...

Adorable and what fab embellies! I do like big eyed little girls, but there are very few stamps I don't like. LOL xxD

Karenladd said...

Your coloring skills are fabulous Holley and you always color people so well. I don't usually work with these big-eyed girl stamps or anything by Sherri Baldi but you rock them! I prefer vintage people designs, or images like those by My Favorite Things.

Karenladd said...

You are a pro at coloring those big-eyed girls but don't go for them myself. In fact, I tend to like girl stamps with tiny eyes...haha! (like Gorjus, My Favorite Things, etc).

SHartl said...

This little girl reminds me of my two in the winter. They love boots and hats! I don't buy the big-eyed girl stamps and can barely color animals, much less girls! I either like super simple images or stamps with all the shading already done, lol.

Laine said...

Very cute Holley!

Cathy Clowes said...

What a lovely card Holley. I love these big eye girl stamps- I used to be on a Bestie DT- but rarely colour these days. I have to agree with your husband, I find Gorjuss girls a bit creepy too! Cathy x

Lorre-Anne Archibald said...

Very cute card Holley, love that image x

Lucie H said...

Love the card. I really prefer more realistic faces, but I have issues with getting skin tones correct. I have several of the girlfriend stamps that I love.

Darcy Schroeder said...

So cute, Holley! I love the Big Eye stamps so I love the Besties!!
Hugs!

Nikki C said...

Depends on the images forms if I like em or not some have the reflections wrong and that bothers me a lot sometines

Shelley said...

Nope, nope, nope. I agree with your husband. I do not like big eyes, so creepy to not have a nose, no little girl stamps here. I do like quirky people images, my favorite being a woman with a cabinet for your body, lol. Not sure where I found that one as it is years old but possibly Uptown or Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers

Cindy van Oorschot said...

Cute card, love the big eyed girl stamps and other girl stamps too, but Love Sherri's images they are so cute and fun to color.

Kathy said...

This is darling. I use lots of little girl stamps because I send cards to several little girls. The big eyes are not always my favorite, but it depends on the image. I prefer my people to have noses and mouths and normal eyes.

Fikreta said...

bissecat said...

Great card.I really like all of these and Magnolias and Gorjus ...

Pat said...

Cute card, Holley! Loving that white lace on white patterned paper look, too. I like realistic girls like those from Ike's Art, quirky ones like those from Sandra Caldwell, and dainty ones like those from A Day for Daisies.

Laurian said...

Cute image and great card Holley!
I can take or leave big eyed stamps - some are adorable and some are gross! xx

Jennifer Dillon said...
