Altered Composition Book

Hello again!  Today I'm sharing with you a mini composition book that I altered.  Here is the before picture.
And here is the after picture.
Cute, huh?  I just love how it turned out.  I think I'm gonna have to make some more of these.  

I colored her with Copics (R22, R00/E13, E11, E00, R21/E25, E31, E51/Y0000, E43, Y11, W00).  Also, since I didn't have the right color for the rhinestones I took some clear ones and colored them with my BG72 marker, so they are now a perfect match!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Magolia-licious  - Altered Item
Totally Stampalicious - It's Got Wings!
Truly Scrumptious  - Clean & Simple

Tilda in the Leaves

Happy Sunday everyone!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend.  We got a bit of rain this morning, but it looks like we'll have blue skies and sunshine the rest of the day.  I've been coloring a lot of images lately, but haven't been really motivated to put them on cards.  Well, that slump has ended.  Tadaaaa!

Calendar Page

Today I've got a calendar page to share with you.  I've had this little Tilda colored up for a while and wasn't sure what to do with her.  I think she works perfectly for the month of June.

I have colored her with Copics and added a bit of Stickles to the ruffles of her dress.  I stitched the bottom panel and added some flowers and brads, then added the calendar.

You're a Classic

Hello again!  I'm here with another challenge over at the Color Me Creative Copic Challenge Group.  The challenge is Sepia or Black n White with a pop of color.  I'll admit that I was a bit scared when I saw this challenge.  I have never tried this before, and to be honest, I probably wouldn't have tried it had it not been for this challenge.  But being that it is a "challenge", I foraged on.  I'll tell you, the thing I love about coloring in sepia tones...I only used 4 Copics.  I don't think I've ever made a card that only used 4 Copics.  Anyway, here are your inspiration photos.

Here's my card using a digi that I got a while ago from DZ Doodles.

I printed the digi out onto Cryogen White cardstock and colored it with E71, E43, E40, and W0 Copics. The DP is from K & Co., I stitched the bottom panel, ran a ribbon across the front, and added the button and twine.

Be sure to head over to the CMC Copic Challenge for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design.  Remember that each entry is entered into a monthly drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Oozak.com.  One play = two chances to win!  You have until Sept. 30th to enter, just be sure to use your Copics when coloring your image.  We hope to see you play along.

Guest Designer at Digital Delights!!!

I've got two projects to share with you today, but before I do...Check it out!!!  I am so excited to be able to tell you all that I was chosen to be a guest designer over at Digital Delights!

They were kind enough to let me use their Hugging Ghosts digi, and boy what fun did I have coloring up this image. It's a cute image and super quick to color.

I printed the digi out on Cryogen White Cardstock and colored it with my Copics (C9,C7,C5,C3,C3,C1/V17,V15,V12/YR68,YR65,YR61/RV34/R20/G18,G14/Y15,Y11/E33,E31), then added Stickles to the word Boo and the buckle on his hat.  I ran the bottom panel through the sewing machine, used an MS punch, added some ribbon, a charm, and some sticky buttons.  

If you would like the chance to win some great prizes be sure to head over to their Delightful Challenges blog to join in the fun each week.

My second project is this cute little notepad.  I used one of my Magnolia stamps, added some flowers, ribbon, little pearls, and poof...done!  I love these notepads because they are quick, easy, and make great gifts.

The papers are K & Company, I stamped her on Cryogen White Cardstock, and then colored her with Copics (E13,E11,E00/R20,R00,R0000/E27,E31,E40/W2).

Tri-fold Card - Fall with CMC

Well, hello there! It's time for another challenge over at the Color Me Creative Copic Challenge Group.  This time we want to see your Fall or Halloween themed projects you've created using your Copic markers.  Our sponsor this week is The Stamp Fairy, and we were lucky enough to get to use an image from The Stamp Fairy.

For my card I used Tommy Wizard.  I think he is so cute and he was so easy to color too.  I also took up my fellow DT member, Charlene, on her challenge to try a tri-fold card.  I followed this video and was able to whip out a card pretty quickly.  If you want to try something different, give this a try.  It's quick and easy, plus it's a great way to use up some of those scraps you may have lying around.

You have until Sept. 16th to enter and the winner gets a $15 Gift Certificate to spend at The Stamp Fairy plus 1 pack of Cryogen Cardstock.  Head on over to the CMC Copic Challenge and play along.  Plus every entry gets entered into a monthly drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Oozak.com.  1 entry gets you 2 chances to win, so head on over and play along.

Holiday Wishes

Happy Monday!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  Mine was a long one, so it was extra special.  Plus, we got a bit of rain, which was much needed.  Well, I have another card with my cute Jame Bear stamp.

For my card I stamped James on some Cryogen White cardstock and colored him using my Copics (I didn't write down which ones).  I stitched the front panels, added a ribbon, the flowers with some Stickles on them, and then added some Stickles to James' hat and the falling snow.  The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
