Oh Willard...

I love Willard, he is so so cute! The Stamp is by Kraftin' Kimmie. Isn't he just adorable?

This week Kimmie had a sketch challenge on her blog.

Here is my card featuring, yep you guessed it....Willard!

The paper I used for this card is Close to my Heart Aspen. The accent colors are Creme Brulee, Outdoor Denim, and Twilight. I used spellbinders for the die cuts that Willard is on. I did the bottom one in Outdoor denim and the plain circle in creme brulee. I then added jewels to all the tabs coming from the spellbinder cutout.

For an added season touch, I added a bit of sparkly felt behind Willard so that he would like he is standing in snow.

The image is colored with Copic Markers.

November 8, 2011

It's like....

Christmas in a cup! I had my first Peppermint Mocha last night and it was so good!!! I love the snow and the cold weather of winter. I love the cool sensation you get after a sip of the hot drink!

Right now I am watching one of our MANY Christmas movies, The Christmas Cottage. This card reminds me so much of the movie. Just the idea of a house/cottage/home filled with friends, family and loved ones for the holidays is amazing.

Here is the closeup of the house. The image has been colored with copic markers. The snow is made with liquid applique with a bit of glitter added before it was heated.

Hope you enjoy!

What a day!

This day started out normal enough in my house. We moved out all my furniture so that my dad could paint my room. Afterwards my sister and I went to the movies to go see I am number four. It was really good, the type of movie I enjoy ;).

After the movies we stopped at our local Metro store to pick up some bean sprouts and bok choi for dinner when.....we saw one of the metro employees get his foot run over. It was shocking! It's like in the movies when everything slows down and as much as you want to stop what is happening you can't. I still can't even believe it! The boy ended up having to go to the hospital. I just hope that he is ok.

On a better note here is a card I made yesterday while my friend Krystal was over scrapbooking with me.

The cardstock and paper (notebook line) is by Close to my Heart. I used my plain ribbon I had in my stash. The image is Stamping Bella's babycarriageabella. I used copic markers to colour here, and shaded with blue pencil crayon. The accents on the side are also from Stamping Bella.

Here are the copic colours I used.

Bella: E00, E35, R85, R83, C00, C1
Baby Carriage: R81, R83, C1, C3, YG11, B0000, B00
Shading underneath: W00. W1, W2, W3

So of course here is the closeup of the image!

It's a hair kinda day....

I was feeling kinda down today, needed a change, so what did I do?

I got my hair cut! YAY, didn't like how my hairdresser did it so I might take some pictures tomorrow after I have tried styling it myself. Now on to the card!

This is my card for Faith's challenge. You can find her challenges and stamps at Designed2Delight Digital Stamps. The stamp I used is "big heart". It is so cute!

Here is my close up. I colour the image with copics and shaded with aquamarine.

Baby Card


Good Morning All!!

Today is a great day, getting everything done early so that I can do some card making with my friends this afternoon. Beds are made, laundry is almost done, I even got to watch the episode of Off the Map that I missed this week.

My mom had a baby shower to attend yesterday so I made her a special card to take with her. I had an old paper pack of muted papers with the old alice in wonderland characters on it that i decided to use. I tried one set of papers before I decided on these. I think they work so well together.

The stamp I used is from Stamping Bella. The stamps are the Ketto Line, specifically the baby lingerie and the clothesline. I think they worked out really well for this card.

Here is the close up of the image.

I used copic markers to colour the main image and shaded with chalks and blue pencil crayon with goo gone.

Here are the copics I used:

R32, RV34, YG93, YG95, W1, E31, E34.

Hope you enjoy!

Snow Day

Oh, what a day. It is snowing here like crazy in southern ontario.

Here is one of our friends out in the backyard that visited us for peanuts during this storm. He is so cute!

Here is my card for Faith's challenge. You can find all her digital stamps at Designed2Delight Digital Stamps. The image is called "for the birds snowman". I love the detail she puts into her images.

I only did some light colouring on this image because it worked well with the muted colours in the Close to My Heart paper.

Here is the close up of the image.

Happy Friday!!!

...well tomorrow that is.

Here is another card I made.

The image is created by Faith. She does terrific work. You can find her here, she also has a fanatic store were you can purchase her digital stamps!!!

Now, I am going to be totally honest here. I found this the most challenging image to create something with. Now that is only because I am in such a valentine's mood. I made it through though and made a really awesome card.

Hope you enjoy!

For this card I used Close to my Heart paper. I printed the image on Bella's bestest paper and coloured the image with copic markers, and shaded with pencil crayons. I used CTMH rubons for the love in the bottom right hand corner. I also added a bit of bling in the top right hand corner.

Hey ladies,

I am so toasty warm today inside watching the snow falling down. I worked on another card this afternoon using one of Faith's Digital Stamps. You can find them here: Designed2Delight Digital Stamps

Here stamp is called "Love you cupcake". SO cute!

I used copic markers to colour the image and used blue pencil crayon and goo gone to shade the back ground. The paper is Close to my Heart.

Here are the colours I used:

Cupcake bottom: E31
Cupcake top: R20, R21
Heart candies: YG03, R24

I used stickles to add the bling!

hello all!!

I was working late all week so I didn't get to post. But I will make up for it.

On Saturday my friend Carol hosted a crop. It was great!! It was supposed to run from 1pm-9pm....we were there until 12:30ish. Carol, Marg, and myself closed the joint down. LOL. I did get lots of Valentine's cards done. Here are a few:

For these cards I used older paper by Close to my Heart that I had in my stash.

The stamps are my Inkadinkado, Animal Hearts. I had fun adding bling and ribbon to these.

Well, I hope that you enjoy these cards as much as I did making them.

Now off to bed for me as I have to get up early tomorrow for work!

Saturday Night...Sunday Morning

Good Morning is now Sunday Morning. I am having a late night today because I am working away in my studio preparing for the 15th in which my friend carol and I are having a ten hour crop!! YAY very excited. I am also adding to my stash of cards, very low on thank you cards.

My family and I went to the movies last night (saturday) to see The Fighter with Mark Wahlberg. Yummy! I love him as an actor, Amy Adams and Christian Bale were amazing too.

I recommend this movie to anyone who loves an underdog or a very inspiring movie. It is based on the life of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg), his older half brother Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale). It takes place before he went pro in the mid 1980's. The coolest part was during the credits. They have both Micky and Dicky sitting down together talking to the audience. It was really neat!!

Ok so enough about the movie, on to my card for the day!!!

I am working on some valentines too to take to work here is one design I Scraplifted and changed up a bit that I saw in a magazine.

I used Bella Blvd. - December Details - Sugar Plums paper, so extra cardstock I had. The ink I used is Close to My Heart Cranberry. The stamps are Gelatins (Hearts a Flutter) and Inkadinkado (An affair of the heart).

Hope you enjoy!!
