HO HO HO Morgan

Look who got some new Digi's. Yes me, I did, lol. This is a limited addition digi from StampInsanity called Naughty or Nice (Morgan), she can only be purchased at Stamp Happens. Oh and the Sentiment is also a StampInsanity digi, isn't it too funny. I colored Morgan in using the colors from SPCC Challenge 26. I picked the sketch from ICSketches #44 because it was perfect for the sentiment and image. I also made this card for Penny's Challenge No DP Allowed.
I made this card to give to a friend that I know will not be offended by the sentiment. I think it is a cute sentiment but I can see some be offended by it, so sorry.

Supplies: SU card stock and marker, Image and sentiment form StampInsanity, Dollar bin bling (Michael's or Joann's), paper piercer, flower made by Jennifer's mom, and Copic Ciao Markers

Bella in Forks

Here is one of the cards I made for SPCC #26. I used It's a rainy day by Softpencil. I am also entering this card in Softpencil's Challenge 9. Jennifer gave me the idea of this image being Bella in Forks, lol. I love these colors together. This is a color combo you will see again again from me :).
Supplies SU Card stock, sentiment and border punch, Softpencil digi image, crochet flower from Jennifer's mom, Dollar bin bling ( Michael's or Joann's) and Copic Ciao Markers

Pixie Dust Studio 1st Challenge Project 2

Oh my I think this Santa is too cute. This is my second project using him. This ornament was made for Pixie Dust Studio Challenge #1, where you can get this cute digi as a freebie. This time I cut out Santa and I colored him a little bit different. I used white flocking on the trim of his hat and coat. On his beard I used liquid applique. I had this coaster already covered with DP from last years projects, I remembered when I was thinking of what to do with this image. I think this turned out cute. Now I need to decide if I will keep it or give it away as a gift. What do you think I should do?

Supplies: SU DP, card stock, sentiment, ribbon, and Punch, Alphabet Stickers for "HO HO HO", foam snowflake, round coaster, Image from Pixie Dust Studio, White flocking, Liquid Applique, and Copic Ciao Markers

Pixie Dust Studio first Challenge and Delightful Sketches #12

Another Christmas card. I think you will be seeing quite a few Christmas cards in the next couple of weeks. This cute little image is from Pixie Dust Studio. He is a freebie for their first challenge here. I used the sketch from Delightful Sketches #12. I colored the image with copics, on the white parts of Santa's hat and coat I added a mixture of white flocking and Dazzling Diamond. On Santa's beard I used Liquid Applique.

I am pretty happy with the way this card turned out even though I cut a slither of Santa's glove off :(. I also have an issue with my red copic, it seems to sit on top of the paper. Is it the copic or is it my paper ( I use SU whisper White)? Actually I also have this issue with my green copics. Any input would be much appreciated, thanks in advance :).

Supplies: SU Card stock, ink, sentiment, punch and ribbon, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses DP, white flocking with dazzling diamonds, Liquid Applique, and Copic Ciao Markers

Softpencil Challenge 8

I made this card for Softpencil's Challenge 8 Christmas theme. The image is a digi stamp called Our dear reindeer. I knew I wanted to use this Basic Grey DP with this image so I colored the image in with like colors. Not sure if you can tell by this pic but I combined flocking with Dazzling Diamonds and put it on the ground and snowflake.Supplies SU card stock and sentiment, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses DP, Softpencil image, foam snowflake, and copic ciao markers.

Fairy Birthday Card and a DT CALL

Happy Monday blog world. Here is a card I made this weekend for Carmen to give to her mother in law. Carmen picked out the stamps she wanted me to use and we went from there. Her mother in law is into angels (so am I) and her favorite color is purple (mine too). It wasn't that hard to get the creative juices flowing even though I was tired from New Moon on Thursday night and stamp class on Friday night. This cute image is called Dainty Fairy from Auntie Amy's. I've had this stamp since June but this is the first card I made using her. I'm pretty happy with the way she turned out. Carmen colored in the little dragonfly with copics, she also cut him out. I also used copics to color the fairy. I added the little pearls because I felt like the card needed something, that is also the reason I added the crochet flower. Thanks for looking :).

Twilight Tuesday New Moon Blog Hop

Wahoo, the day we have all been waiting for has arrived. New Moon is finally in theaters and to celebrate Twilight Tuesday is having a New Moon Blog Hop. If you didn't arrive here from Jeri Moody's blog please start here. If you are here for the Artful INKables Blog Hop please go to post below this one, I made a different card for that hop.

Most of you know I am Team Edward, but I'm thinking for the movie I may be Team Wolf Pack. Sorry but Rob does nothing for me, lol. Since I'm thinking I may be a Wolf Girl, I decided to make this card. I uses Artful INKables Into the Moonlight and Fictionally Inspired Stamp sets and the Vampire Romance Themed Charms that can be found here. I colored Jacob (the wolf) with my Copic markers and cut the image out with my deckled rectangle nesties. I inked up the edges with SU Close to Cocoa Ink using a sponge. To give the charm more movement I put dimensionals behind the ribbon (I believe the ribbon is Martha Stewart from Michael's), the image panel and the sentiment are also on dimensionals.

When the post goes live I hope to be in bed, lol. I will have already seen New Moon (going to Midnight showing). I can't wait for the chatter about the movie to start. I'm really hoping I loved it.

SPC7 Sarah's Birthday Card

I made this card yesterday for Sarah's birthday. I had to make a quick card since yesterday was her birthday, lol. I have other birthday cards already made but she has seen them all. I wanted her to get one that was made just for her. Well, I thought I was being a good mom by doing that. As Sarah is reading her card she tells me I signed it Love, Mom, Dad, Devin and Sarah. I can't believe I put Sarah instead of Isabella. She is never going to let me forget that one.
Anyways I printed this image called Taking care of Flowers to use in Softpencil's Challenge #7. The challenge asked that you use pink and butterflies. I used my copics to color the image in, I added some Dazzling Diamonds on her wings and the sprinkles she is adding to the flowers.

Exciting News

Samantha over at Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo aka SPCC has asked me to be a DIVA. I am super excited, this will be my very first Design Team. I am looking forward to working with Samantha and the other Divas.

So here is my first card as a Diva, hehehe. I made this card last night, and I have to say that the lighting in my craft space aka dining room is horrible. I colored this image from Softpencil called Michu and his Christmas tree. The image was a freebie here. Well I didn't even realize how bad the tree looked until after I uploaded the card, there's a reason I color in front of the TV. Better lighting in the living room, live and learn.

SPCC #24 is to use Bashful Blue, Real Red and Certainly Celery, luckily I had a few copics that worked with that color combo :). I used liquid applique on the white parts of the santa hat. The DP is from Basic Grey, sentiment is SU as well as the card stock and ribbon. Other supplies used were square, scallop square, rectangle, and scallop rectangle nesties. Thanks for looking.

Happiness Is Shopping

Here is a card I made using a Miss Anya image from The Greeting Farm. I made up the sketch all by myself, yeah me :). I claim the color combo as well, although I'm not sure if that Creamy Carmel really works with the red and grey, lol.
I seem to make my cards faster when I'm not trying to squeeze a challenge into them. I will still do challenges cause I really need the inspiration they give me. I think I will start coloring images for a specific project instead of just coloring a bunch of images at one time.

Supplies: SU Cardstock, ribbon and rub on,Copic Markers, oval and scallop oval nesties, and Colorbok metal heart accents

Sweet Hilda

Here is another Hilda card. I made this card for Motivet Week 46 Challenge. Love this sketch! This was one of my images that needed to be used, gosh it is taking me forever to get those images on cards. I may have to break my promise and color some new images. First I will try to get through the rest of my images today, but if I can't get through them I will need to start coloring some images soon. I miss using my copics, lol. OMG I just noticed I didn't color in her eyes, lol. Anyways, thanks for looking.

Supplies:SU Cardstock, DP and ribbon, copic markers, button, and flower Jennifer's mom made.

Yet another

... purple card, lol. What can I say I love purple. I'm trying to use up my colored images so I can color more. So many other things going on that I am only getting one card done a day :(. Anyways, this card is made with a Miss Anya from The Greeting Farm. I colored her in with copic markers. All other supplies are SU. I didn't use any challenges making this card. I just wanted to get it made so I didn't look for a challenge. I can't wait for January to come, cause that is when things will slow down and I can play more. Thanks for looking!

SC254 Oops Tilda

This is Oops Tilda by Magnolia Stamps, she is adorable. She is one of my images that was waiting to be made into a card. It has been hard not using my copics. I said I wouldn't color anymore images until I used the ones I have previously colored. It is so easy to sit in front of the TV and color but I can't drag my supplies over there to make a card, lol. Anyways I will stick to my promise and get all my images on cards before I color anymore. This sketch is SC254 from SCS. I knew it would work with a few of my images but I chose this cutie for the sketch. All supplies are SU except image and Copic Ciao Markers. Thanks for looking!
