Big Hair at CMC!

Hello again.  We've got another challenge for you over at the CMC Copic Challenge.  We want to see you color your images that have BIG HAIR!  Color it any way you want, just be sure your image has big hair. 

Our sponsor, Crafts and Me, gave us some images to color.  I colored Moon Glow, and she has definitely got a lot of hair.  I printed this digi onto Cryogen White Cardstock and colored her with my Copics (BG13, BG11, BG10/E99, E97, Y21, Y11/E11, E00, E000, R20/E43, E40).  The flowers are some new ones I got from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Aren't they pretty?  The ribbon and lace are from my LCS, and the doily, button, twine, and rhinestones are from my stash.  I added a Tim Holtz tag and distressed it with some Vintage Photo ink, and then added a bit of Stickles to the image.

We would love for you to join us this time around.  You have a chance to win a prize from Crafts and Me, and every entry goes into a drawing for the monthly prize...a $50 gift certificate to  So be sure to head over to the CMC Copic Challenge for your chance to play along and win.

Also, Suzanne will be having classes at CHA, the Sunday before it starts in Chicago.  If you'd like to learn some Copic coloring techniques you can get more information here.

Happy Father's Day

Hi again.  I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and had a decent Monday.  Of course I'm a day late with this post, but here it is nonetheless.  I thought this Digi Shack image would be perfect for a Father's Day card. 

I printed it onto Cryogen White Cardstock and colored it with my Copics (Y28, Y23, Y21/G24, G21, G20/E11, E00, E0000/BG10/C1).  The DP is from Chatterbox and the ribbon from my stash.  I put some DCWV white core cardstock in one of my embossing folders, ran it through my Cuttlebug, and then sanded it a bit.  I also pulled out my Snow Marker and used that to create the foam on the beer.  Cute, huh?

Also, don't forget that the challenge over at the CMC Copic Challenge Group is BABIES!  There is still time to join, so we hope to have you play along.

All About Babies at CMC

It's me again, with another challenge over at the CMC Copic Challenge Group.  This time it's all about BABIES! 

Our sponsor, I Brake For Stamps, let us each use one of their digis.  I chose Starry Pajamas.  I thought this was just the sweetest image.  I printed him out onto Cryogen White Cardstock and colored him with Copics (BG78, BG75, BG72, BG0000/Y07, Y000/E11, E00, E0000, R20/E29, E25, E31/C1, C00/BG10).  The papers are an older DCWV pack I've had.  I added the ribbon, button, twine, and pearl adhesives from my stash.  I ran one of my Spellbinders banner dies through the Cuttlebug and added the sentiment from Hero Arts.

So break out your Copics, ProMarkers, other alcohol markers, or colored pencils and let's see your baby themed projects.  You have until June 22nd to enter and anyone can play along.  One lucky winner will get 5 digis of their choice from I Brake For Stamps.  Plus, every entry goes into a monthly drawing for a $50 gift certificate to  Remember, you can't win if you don't play along.  Head over here to join in the fun.  I hope to see you there.

For You

Hello again.  Today I'm sharing a card I made using a digi I got from Bugaboo Stamps.

I printed him onto Cryogen White Cardstock and colored him with my Copics (E37, E35, E33, E31/B14, B12, B00/C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00/E11, E00, E000, R20/Y08, Y02, YG63, YR12/W5, W2, W00).  The DP is from Dream Street Papers and the rhinestones are from my stash and colored with one of my Copic markers to match the card.  I used a couple of Spellbinders dies for the banner and around the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

Don't forget about the Summer Sale over at the Color Me Creative Classroom.  There are some great deals to be had, so be sure to check them out.

Big Girl Pants

Hi again! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Just a quick post today to share a card that I made.

I used this cute digi from Mo's Digital Pencil called Big Girl Pants.  I printed her onto Cryogen White Cardstock and colored her with my Copics (V99, V95, V93/Y21, Y11, Y00/E11, E00, E000, R20/E29, E25, E31/W5, W2, W00).  The papers are from MME and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Recollections.  I got the ribbon on Etsy, and the brad, charm, and pearl adhesives are from my stash.  The sentiment is computer generated.  On the inside I added "it's time to celebrate another birthday."  (wink, wink)

Sweet Milly

Happy Friday to everyone!  I hope you all made it through the week ok.  Today I've got a card with a cute stamp I got from Lili of the Valley.  This is Milly Just for You.

I just love this sweet girl.  If you look closely you can see that I made another easel card with a sticky notepad on it.  She was stamped onto Cryogen White Cardstock and colored using my Copics.  The DP is from Imaginisce and the flowers are a combination of Wild Orchid Crafts, Recollections, and Prima.  The pearls and ribbon are from my LCS, and I added a bit of Stickles to the flowers as well as her dress and the butterfly.

Also, don't forget about the Pinks & Greens challenge over at the CMC Copic Challenge.  You have until June 8th to enter and the chance to win 2 prizes.  We'd love to have you join in the fun.
