You made the good list!

Hi all!  I’m here with a card using a Simply B Stamps image today.  I found Simply B a long time ago and actually bought/used a couple images and then for some reason, she totally fell off my radar.  Recently I became reacquainted with her and have since bought a bunch of new images and will be using them more often, so I hope you like them!

Here’s Check List Rio with matching sentiment:

CheckListRio1

I printed Rio out and colored her with Copics.  Next I cut out the Rio portion with a Papertrey wreath die.  I also cut the wreath out of white glitter cardstock and colored it green with Copics.  Then I inlaid the Rio into the wreath and taped it together on the back.  Finally I printed the sentiment on the card and attached the Rio wreath with foam tape.

The sketch is from CASE(E) this Sketch.  I hope you like it and TFL!

YNS Feature Day

Hi all!  It’s YNS Feature Day over on the YNS Blog and this month our theme is Christmas/Winter.  Here’s what I came up with:

UglySweater3

I used the Ugly Sweater stamp set and also the matching dies.  Isn’t that sentiment just too funny?!  I have 2 techniques to share here: stamping on felt and coloring on felt with Copics.  I used Brilliance Ink to stamp the sweater and let it dry.  Then I lightly dabbed on the color with the tips of the Copics.  Don’t press down too hard or the marker will soak into the felt and go outside the lines.

I also did a Start to Finish video on the making of it:

BTW - I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

Please check out the YNS Blog to see all the Feature Day creations from the DT and comment for your chance to win!  TFL!

Thanks for Everything

Hi all!  Today I have a card for several challenges:

IMG_2731

I used the Thanks word die and Many Thanks stamp set from Paper Smooches.  For the thanks, I cut it out of white cardstock 3 times and colored each with a rainbow of Copic markers (this was to make sure even the edges of the die cuts were colored).  Then I glued them together, coated them with Glossy Accents, and sprinkled a little ultra fine glitter over them.

This is for the following challenges:

I hope you like it and TFL!

Penguin Joy

HI all!  Today I have a shaped card for you – yay!  I love shaped cards and they’re so easy to make with Make-The-Cut software and my Zing electronic cutter!!

ArcticPenguins2

I created the card base in MTC and then cut the kraft cardstock and striped patterned paper with my Zing.  I stamped the penguins and hats from Arctic Penguins, colored them with Copics, and cut them with the matching Creative Cuts.  I adhered the penguins and hats to the base and stamped the little lines next to the top right penguin (love those!!).

This is for the ME November Challenge – Holiday cards and tags.  I hope you like it and TFL!

Big Eye Elf with Roses

Hi all!  I colored this image from Aurora Wings a long time ago, but I just made it into a card now.  I love to look at people’s super fancy embellished cards (you know, the kinds with roses, lace, frantage, ribbons, die cuts hanging off the edges, etc.), but I just can’t do it myself.  This is as fancy as I go! lol!

ElfWithRoses1

I printed Big Eye Elf with Roses and colored her with Prismacolor pencils and then dotted on Liquid Pearls to finish it off.  I added some tulle and a little ribbon bow and called it a day.  I haven’t added a sentiment so that I can figure out what to do with it later.

I’m SO happy with how the face and hair and especially the eyes came out, that I wanted to show you a close up:

ElfWithRoses1b

Oh yeah, the white highlights were done with a white Sharpie paint pen.

This is my second entry into the Aurora Wings FB November 2014 contest – My Favorite Aurora Wings Digi.  She really is one of my faves, not only because she’s just gorgeous, but because I’m so proud of how I colored her!

This is also for the Aurora Wings challenge blog – anything goes.  I hope you like it and TFL!
