Saturated Canary – Mousey Mo

Leave a comment

imageThis is a cute little image from Saturated Canary called “Mousey Mo”. I used copics to color the image and background. The paper is from Simple Stories and I really like how well all of colors ended up going together. It was really fun to color too. On a sad note, the owner of Saturated Canary is closing her digital shop this August 31st. So if you like her images head over to her shop before it is too late! Thanks for stopping by.

Chili Cook Off Thank You Card

Leave a comment

Hello,

This is a “Thank You” card I made a couple of years ago but never posted.  I was looking through my old pictures recently and though I would share it now.

In our community, one of the things they do to kick off the United Way Giving Campaign is a Chili Cook Off.  The office where I work participated and and I made this card for the wife of one of my coworkers who works in the local catholic school kitchen, as she helped us make the chili.  (The rules for the cook off is that the chili has to be cooked in a commercial kitchen – and she pretty much did all the work as it was way faster – we just helped by handing her the ingredients.) We bought her a gift card to the salon she likes for helping us so much.  We didn’t win the cook off but it was really fun attending the event. I have also included a picture of our booth for fun.  The theme that year was “Las Vegas”, and as we are a construction company, we went with Casino’s that have all been demolished!

The image on the front of the card is a Mo’s Digital Pencil Stamp called “What’s Cooking“, I love this image as she reminds me of a friends daughter! I colored her with Copic Markers and the background paper is from my paper stash and it is pretty old, but I believe it was from “My Minds Eye“.  I also used the same paper to create the pocket on the inside of the card.

Thanks for looking!

 

Last of my Christmas Cards to share

Leave a comment

Hello, these are the last three Christmas Cards I have to share from 2015, now that it’s half way through January 2016!

This first one was for my daughters friend who loves the “Bumble” from Rudolph.  While he’s not an official “Bumble”, he comes pretty close.  The stamp set is from the Hero Arts line called Clearly Kelly, the set is call Kelly’s Yeti.  It is a stamp & cut set, which means it comes with die cuts included in the set.  I used a piece of a Masking Sheet to block off the bottom for the snowy ground and then used Distress Inks for coloring the background and some Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bleed Proof White Ink to make the snow flakes.  This one was fun to make and I will probably do this one again.

The final two card are a couple more Lili of the Valley stamps.  I believe the bear is called “James”, and I think you can still buy these stamps.  These two were done in the same manner as the previous two Lili of the Valley cards that I shared, so for details on supplies please see the previous post.

Best Wishes & Happy New Year!

Christmas 2015 Card Post #2

Leave a comment

Hello, today I am sharing another Christmas Card that I made.  It also uses a Lili of the Valley rubber stamp from the Jack, Patch & Puss line.

This one was a little bit different and special as it was to say Thank You to our Veterinarian. This past year had been a long and difficult year for our dog, Mandy, who was 15 years old.  She was slightly blind, deaf and possibly suffered a stroke, and on December 2nd, I knew it was finally time to say goodbye to her.  Our veterinary office was so helpful and kind during this time.  I had previously made two other appointments to say goodbye and then backed out as she seemed to be better on some days than others, but this last time I knew there was no going back, it was time to say goodbye.

I used most of the same supplies as the last card post, so I will not repost here.  Only the paper is different, which I am not sure, but think it was from Simple Stories.  Below I will add pictures of my dog Mandy.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a comment if you’d like.

Christmas 2015 Card Post #1

Hello, today I am sharing one of the Christmas Cards that I made for 2015 for family/friends.

This card was made with a Lili of the Valley rubber stamp, that unfortunately is no longer available. The stamp I believe was from the series called Jack, Patch & Puss.  They are so cute, I’m not sure why they stopped carrying them.  This one is just Jack (the bunny) and Puss (the kitty).  A list of craft items used to create this card are listed below.

All You Need Is Love

Leave a comment

Well, I finally completed a card using the image I water colored with Distress Inks a few weeks ago.  I made it for two co-workers who got married this month.  I ended up going really simple with this one, just one kind of patterned paper mounted first on black card stock and then on a heavy (110 lb) bright white card stock with the image its self being mounted on the black card stock as well.  It is not a folded card that opens, but rather just a flat (one side) image to frame or put in a scrapbook, however we did all sign the back of the piece to commemorate their big day!

The patterned paper is from Simple Stories and is from the HomeSpun Collection – Item #3806 – Homemade.

The “all you need is love” expression is a stamp from PrintWorksCollections.com and was really fitting as the bride loves the Beatles.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Today I have a simple card that I made for Mother’s Day, but it could be used for any occasion really.  This stamp is one from a set called Bentley Bear Thank You Collection that came with the January copy of Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine.  I love this little bear he is so cute.  I stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored it with Distress Inks.  I think this time the coloring process turned out a little better than my last attempt. Thanks for stopping by!
