Well, clearly I have neglected this blog for almost a year!

I am hoping to get my butt in gear and do at least a monthly or even bi-monthly posting.  I have really been enjoying all of the cards posted to the Bella and Bronte Club House on Facebook and was inspired by a color palette shared by Rhea Weigand.  Here is a link to her blog posting of the card.

For my card I used the Mo Manning image, “Shall I play for you”, which you can find here.  The base card stock is a dark eggplant which is hard to tell in this picture, and the printed card stock is from Bo Bunny and is called Altitude Rustic. I really like the way the colors all came together in this card.

I hope you enjoy this card, Merry Christmas!

Hey Crafters,

This is a card that I made for my daughter and her boyfriend for Christmas, and didn’t want to post it till I was sure that they had received it, but then after that I sort of forgot…so I figured, better late than never right? List of Supplies to follow.

Thanks for stopping by!

Saturated Canary Challenge Blog, #58 Untraditional Christmas Colours


Hi Everyone, today I am participating in Challenge #58 over at the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog.

The digital image I used is called Molly, isn’t she cute?

I printed her out on some Copic Xpress It Blending Card stock and colored her with Copic Markers.   The designer paper is from the My Mind’s Eye – “Merry Little Christmas” 6×6 paper pad that I purchased from Michael’s.  I love these 6×6 paper pads, they are perfect for card making as the patterns are scaled down from the 12×12 scrapbooking versions.  

The card base and layering paper is a piece of Black Card stock from my local copy shop. It’s a heavier weight maybe 110 lb card stock which makes for a nice sturdy card base.  I added some decorative elements by using the Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics from Simon Says Stamp and added some paper roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The Copic Maker colors I used are:
Skin & Parchment Roll – E50, 51 & 53, R20 on her lips and cheeks
Hair – E 42, 43 & 44
Clothes – R81, 83 & 85, YG61, 63 & 67
Background – BG10, 11 & 15, W00, 1, & 3

Tiddly Inks Fabulous Inky Friday Challenge #122 – Anything Goes


Happy Thanksgiving Crafters,  I hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday!

Today I am sharing a card that I’m entering into the Fabulous Inky Friday Challenge #122 over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  The theme for this challenge is “Anything Goes” and the only rule is that you have to use a Tiddly Inks Image.  The image I have used is a digital stamp call “Joy Bugg”, and you can find her in the Tiddly Inks Digital Stamp store, although she is now part of a set called “Buggs – Mega Pack”.

I printed the image out on a piece of Copic X-Press It Blending Card that I purchased from Simon Says Stamp.  I love this card stock for using my Copic Markers on, they blend together really well when you use this paper, although I didn’t use blending or shading in this card, I just when for basic solid coloring.  I also added some Stickles Star Dust glitter glue to make her wings sparkle and then added some White Enamel Accents on her hat and dress, these look like little raised up dots, but I don’t think this shows up very well in the picture.

The papers I used are from the 6 x 6 designer paper pad “Lime Twist” from My Minds Eye, which I also purchased from Simon Says Stamp.  I also used the largest die cut from my Lacy Squares Spellbinders set to layer in the back of my colored image and then used some foam squares to pop it up off the card  base.

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Holidays!


From All Of Us Birthday Card

Leave a comment

Hi Everyone!

Happy Weekend! Happy 1st Day of September!  Today I have a card made with one of the Lili Of The Valley Stamps that I received in the mail a few weeks ago. I just LOVE these stamps, they are so cute!

The image I used is called “From All Of Us” and you can get it here.  I stamped the image with a Memento Ink Pad (Tuxedo Black) on a piece of Copic X-press It Blending Card Stock that I purchased from Simon Says Stamp and then colored it with Copic Markers.  This is also the first time I have posted a card with an image colored on this paper, and I’m not sure if it shows in the pictures or not, but the colors really blend well.

I cut the easel card base and top out of some craft card stock using my Silhouette Cutting Machine.  The Decorative paper is from Simple Stories “Fabulous” 6 x6 paper pad.  This card measures about 5.25 x 5.25 finished so, the 6×6 paper pads work great for this type of card.

Lili Of The Valley Stamps

Hey Crafters!  At the end of July I ordered my first ever Lili Of The Valley stamps, and because they are located in the UK it could be up to 21 days before I received them.  Boy was I happy and excited when they arrived in just over a week!

I have been drooling over all of their cute stamps for at least a year now and once I saw their new Christmas Stamps, I took the plunge!  I can’t wait to start my Christmas Cards now!  I also purchased some general every day stamps as well.  Hopefully I will have some cute cards to post int he next few weeks!
