It's a tag today!

I just wanted to share something with you real quick.  Here's a tag I made using a Magnolia mini to match this card I made a few weeks ago.  I hadn't inked it up yet, but I'll tell you it is just a easy to color as the bigger stamp.  Plus, it makes a nice little gift set.  Love, love, love it!!! 

As always she's stamped onto Cryogen White Cardstock and colored with Copics.  I added some ribbon from my stash and of course, ran the Vintage Tag Doohickey through my Cuttlebug.

Bring in the Funk-y Hair!

It's challenge time again at the Color Me Creative Copic Challenge group.  This time we want you to use your Copics to color Multi-Colored hair/Non-Traditional hair colors.  I'll tell you that I wasn't completely comfortable with this at first, but it grew on me.  I love how this image turned out and I do believe I'll give this another try again.  Our wonderful sponsor, Simply Betty Stamps, let me have this cute digi.

I printed this digi onto Cryogen White Cardstock and colored her with my Copics (BV17, BV13, BV11/E11, E00, E000, R20/BG13, BG11, BG0000/Y23, Y02/E33, E31, E50/YR12, YR14, YR20, R24/YG67, YG63, YG03).  I added the fall leaves that I punched out with some Marvy punches then added a bit of Stickles to them.  The sentiment is computer generated. 

I hope you will join us over at the CMC Copic Challenge.  You could win a prize from Simply Betty Stamps plus 1 pack of Cryogen Cardstock.  Each entry is also entered into a monthly drawing for a $50 gift certificate from Oozak.com You have until Dec. 9th to play along, so be sure to head over here to join in the fun.

I would like to enter this card into the Do You Stack Up? challenge (Grass).

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.

Tilda's Warm Wishes

Quick post today with another Tilda stamp that I got last year.  I used my new pack of MME papers and just love how this card turned out.

It's hard to tell from my crummy picture, but I tried some new Copic colors that I hadn't used before.  I used V99, V95, and V93.  The work wonderfully with the papers, but you just can't tell with the rotten picture.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Me again!  Here's a card I made with a cute digi from Bugaboo Stamps.  I just love Jodie's stamps, they are so cute and whimsical.

Pretty simple card.  I stitched around the edges, used my MS holly border punch along the bottom, added the ribbon, and used another MS punch for the holly in the corner.  Piece of cake!

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday! I hope you all made it through the day ok. I've got another card with James Bear from Lili of the Valley. I believe I've mentioned before that I just love this stamp.

Isn't he just the sweetest?  I got these new papers from The Paper Studio this weekend and just love them with this image.  I ran some Coredinations cardstock through my Cuttlebug to emboss that swirly design on it.  The ribbon and brads are from my stash, and then of course the glitter I added to his hat and the ground.

Under the Sea

Hi again!I didn't realize it had been so long since my last post, but time does fly by.  It's challenge time again over at the Color Me Creative Copic Challenge group The challenge this time is Colors of the Sea.  Our wonderful sponsor Michelle Perkett Studio gave us each an image to use for this challenge and I chose Eva the Glam Mermaid.

I just love how this card turned out.  I printed this digi out onto Cryogen White Cardstock and colored her with Copics (BG13, BG11, BG10/E11, E00, E000/Y21, Y11, E97/YG06, YG0000/R85, R81/YR21).  My pretty blue sparkly cardstock is from Coredinations.  I used my Martha Stewart Deco Shells border punch along the edges of the one side and punched out the sand dollar with another MS punch.  I added some wrinkled ribbon and a brad, then hung a turtle charm from it.  I put the pearls in the corners and added some glitter to the mermaid.
