With Love

It's me again.  I've got another card to share, this time with a stamp from Lili of the Valley.


I just love this stamp.  I stamped her onto Cryogen White Cardstock using Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used my Copic markers to color her and added a bit of Stickles to the butterfly and her shirt.  The papers are MME, which I love as well.  I found the wrinkled ribbon in the bottom of a drawer (totally forgot I had it).  The button, twine, and charm are from my stash.  I also added just a dab of Liquid Pearls to the center of the flower.  I've got a bunch of that stuff and don't use it nearly enough, so you will probably see more of the Liquid Pearls on my projects.  The sweet sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

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

Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown - So Charming
A Gem of a Challenge - Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Thanks for taking a few minutes to stop by.  Have a great week!

Tugging on your Heartstrings

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  Mine went by fairly quickly, but I was able to get a couple of cards made, and that is always good.  Here is a card I made with another of my new Tilda stamps.


I just love how cute this stamp is.  I stamped her onto Cryogen White Cardstock using Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  My papers are BasicGrey and Karen Foster Designs and she is colored with Copics.  I just love the ribbon, which is from Paper Temptress; perfect for Valentine's Day.  I added a bunch of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and the spray of pearls.  The leaves were punched using my MS punch and then Stickles were added to the leaves and flowers, as well as her dress.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

Challenges:

Magnolia-licious - Pink, white, and red
Totally Stampalicious - Valentine's Day
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
BasicGrey Challenges - Favorite Things (Tilda stamp, ribbon, Stickles, BasicGrey DP)

Cold and Frosty

Well, it's time for another challenge over at the CMC Copic Challenge and we want to see your frosty, icy, and cold projects.  Here is a picture for inspiration.


And here is my card.



I used this cute stamp, Mr. Snowman, from Lili of the Valley who is our sponsor for this challenge.  I stamped this image onto Cryogen White Cardstock using Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used my Copics to color this image (C9, C7, C5, C3, C1/B97, B95, B93, B91, B00/G24, G21/R27, R24/E35/YR65/Y28/BG10).  I used my MS punch for the bigger snowflakes and my Marvy punch for the smaller snowflakes.  The ribbon is from my stash, added the rhinestones in the corner, and a bit of glitter to the ground.

Anyone can play along, just be sure to use your Copic markers.  One lucky winner will receive a fabulous prize from Lili of the Valley.  Plus, each entry will go into a monthly drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Oozak.com.  You have until Feb. 3rd to join in the fun.  We hope to see you there!

Tilda again?

Two days in a row with a post...wow!  I've got another Magnolia card to share with you today.  I was in the mood to make a girlie card (notice all of the flowers?).  You can probably tell that I just LOVE this stamp too b/c I posted a card with it last week. AND the one I did last week was purple as well.  Duh!  Anyway, here it is.


I just love these papers.  They are Disney papers by EK Success.  If you look closely you can see a couple of the mouse ears on the DP.  I colored her with Copics, added some rhinestone swirls, and some flowers from Prima, Recollections, and Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used MS punches for the butterfly and leaves and added some Stickles to the butterfly as well as Tilda blouse and bow.

Challenges:

Wild Orchid Challenge - Anything Goes
Just Magnolia - Sketch

Calendar

Happy Friday!  I've got a quick post today.  I've had this wonderful stamp from Sparkle Creations and I'm finally using it.  I bought one of those plastic picture frames and made a calendar page with it.
