Saddle Easel

Hey, hey, hey!  Quick post today.  I wanted to share another notepad card that I made, this time using an image from The Digi Shack.

I used my Copics to color the image.  The papers are from Creative Imaginations and the flowers are Prima, Recollections, and WOC.  I used my MS punch for the leaves.  The lace is from my LCS and the pretty pink and brown ribbon is from Paper Temptress.  The pin is another from my stash that I made recently.

Hello again and I hope you all are enjoying your weekend.  We've got another challenge for you at the CMC Copic Challenge.  This challenge is all about Celebrations.  Color your images that celebrate something.  Our sponsor, The Pixie Cottage, gave us each an image and I chose Polkadotasaurus.

As soon as I saw this image I knew he needed to be blue and green.  Luckily I had these totally cute papers from MME that look great with it.  Of course, I colored him with Copics (BG13, BG11, BG10/G24, G21, G20/Y11, R20/W5, W2, W00).  I put some DCVW white core cardstock in one of my new embossing folders and ran it through my Cuttlebug, then sanded it down a bit.  The twine is from my LSS and the buttons were in my stash.

We would love for you to join us for the challenge.  One randomly chosen person will get a $10 gift voucher from Pixie Cottage Stamps, plus all entries go into a monthly drawing for a $50 gift certificate to  Go here to join the fun.  Anyone can play along.

Tilda with a Daisy

Hi again.  Today I'm sharing an easel card I made with a color combo that I'm drawn to lately.  I just love this turquoise and yellow combination.

She's colored with Copics and my papers are MME.  The flowers are Recollections and I got the wrinkled ribbon on Etsy.  The rhinestones, button, and twine are from my stash, and the pin is handmade by....ME!  They are my latest favorite thing.  I spent a couple of hours one night watching a movie and making pins.  Love, love, love 'em!

Happy Monday to you!  Today I'm sharing a card that I made for my hubby for our anniversary.  I like that it was quick and other than a bit of bling (I had to put SOMETHING in that corner), fairly manly.

Short and sweet, right?  The sentiment is from Rain Drop Echo and the wonderful papers are from Prima.  I ran each of the layers through my sewing machine.  I got the lace and rhinestones from my LCS.

He Comes "Bear"ing Flowers

Hi there everyone.  I hope this Wednesday is treating you well.  We got some storms and rain here, but we need it so I won't complain.  I've got a stamp that I'm embarrassed to say that I've had over a year and FINALLY got around to inking it up.  After coloring him (which took me no time at all) I don't know why I didn't use this stamp sooner.

This cute fella is from Motivet and I colored him with my Copics.  I just love how these papers from 7 Gypsies look with this guy; great colors, right?  The ribbon is from my LSS and the brads are from my stash.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley stamped with some Colorbox ink.  Alas, there are no Stickles on this card...shocker!  Don't worry I'm sure I'll make up for it soon.

Tilda Notepad

Welcome back everyone!  I hope you all had a nice weekend.  We had some wonderful weather here.  Today I've got another notepad that I made with one of my Tilda stamps.  This stamp is definitely my most used stamp as you will see later this week.  I had a request for a few of these notepads and wanted to share.

Isn't she cute?  How could you not love this stamp?  She is stamped onto Cryogen White Cardstock with Momento Tuxedo  Black ink and colored with Copics.  The papers are So Sophie from MME.  I used my MS punches for the butterflies, added some pearl adhesives I got from my LCS, and the ribbon from my stash.  Of course, I have added some Stickles to her dress and bow.

Another Tilda Calendar

Well, I'm back with another calendar I made with one of my Tilda stamps.  If you want to see the one I posted previously check it out here.

This Tilda is colored with Copics (Y08, Y04, Y00/BG13, BG11, BG10/E35, E31, Y23/C5, C3, C1, C00/YR68, YR61/YG67, YG03/E43/W5, W2, W00).  I didn't write down what DP I used.  The lace is from my LCS.  The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima, and Recollections.  I used my MS punches for the butterflies and added some pearl adhesives from my stash.  The brads are from my stash as well and the flowers that she is holding have been "Stickled".  The calendar is computer generated.

Also, don't forget that we have a challenge going on over at the CMC Copic Challenge group.  We want you to color with some pretty spring colors.  Be sure it check it out and join in the fun.  Anyone can play along.

Tilda Calendar

Hello again!  I hope you all are having a wonderful week.  Only a couple of days left until the weekend!  Today I'm sharing a calendar that someone asked me to make.  I've got another one to share that you will probably see in the next day or two as well.  Here's the first one.

This is one of the first Tilda stamps that I bought last year and I just LOVE how she turned out.  I believe I will be coloring her up again, so don't be shocked if you see her again in the near future.

I have stamped her onto Cryogen White Cardstock.  The DP is Daisy Bucket Designs and a piece of DCVW white-core cardstock, which I ran through in a Cuttlebug folder and sanded.  Sweet Tilda is colored with Copics (G24, G21, G20/E13, E11, E00, R21/B97, B95, B93, B91/E25, E31, E50/E43, E41, E40/YG67, R22/BG10).  I also used my white posterboard pen to add the little dots to her cheeks.  The lace is from my LCS.  The flowers are a combination of Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima, and Recollections.  I'm so happy that I finally used these cute dragonfly brads that have been in my stash for a while.  I finished it off by adding some Stickles to her flowers.  The calendar was computer generated.

I hope you enjoy my little project that I am sharing today.
