Cuppa Joe

This is my card for the challenge Joanne posted on the Gina K forums on SCS. The challenge was to make a card with buttons and bows and to have at least one element at an angle. I really struggled with this one for some reason, but I had fun with it and that is all that matters really any way. I colored the images with my copic markers. Thank you for stopping by.

Will you be Mine??

I made this for the challenge that Gina posted on her blog this morning, to make something that is double mounted and to use Gina K Design images. This is a double challenge card also for the Stamp Simply challenge to make something with something new. My something new is my Label One nestablitites that I got from my sister for Christmas (Thank you Theresa) and my new copic markers. This is actually a pocket matchbook card. Theresa (my sister) wrote a tutorial on how to make one and you can find it here. The inside holds one Ghirardelli chocolate. Thank you for stopping by.

Wide Ride

I made this card for today's Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS. I am having a lot of fun playing with my new copics. Sorry for another bad photo there is still lousy weather here and I can't seem to get a good picture of anything. It is very hard to tell but the trees are stamped on very vanilla in chocolate chip and the ground is sponged with close to cocoa. For the sky I lightly sponged with so saffron. The truck is colored with copics and then heat embossed with clear three times. Thanks for stopping by.

I finally got some.....


Yes I got all of these
beauties for Christmas, thank you mom.

So I had to break them in right? I made this card for my sister's birthday which in a few days. This is one of the first times I have used copics and I have a lot to learn yet, but I am happy enough with the results.
I started by coloring the rose from A Year of Flowers by Melanie Muechinger.

After coloring I cut out the rose and leaves and then inked them with versamark and then heat embossed them three times. The back ground is whisper white card stock I sponged with so saffron and very lightly with certainly celery and finally I stamped the leave from Botanical Dreams. I added the pearls and then layered it on some basic gray paper and chocolate chip paper, the base of the card is so saffron. Sorry for the bad photo the weather here is very cloudy and rainy.

Thanks for looking.

Gift Card Holder

Yesterday on Carolina's blog she posted the cutest gift card holder with a great tutorial. I loved it and was in the need for a gift card holder so I made one. It is easy to do, I made my own designer paper. I stamped the snowflakes from Snow Swirled in certainly celery and real red then I lightly sponged certainly celery all over. I saw this done on one of the blogs I visit yesterday but I can't remember who, sorry if you know whose it is please let me know so I can give credit.
Thanks for looking.

Snowy Trees

This is a card I made using Stampin' Up's Lovey as a Tree, I love that set. To create the background I sponged starting with bashful blue, then ballet blue and last I sponged brilliant blue. I stamped the trees and heat embossed them. I used my white gel pen to make the snow. To create the the horizon I tore post-it notes through the sticky part and then used it as a mask. Last I layered it on basic gray and a card base of bashful blue. Thank you for stopping by.

Happy Holidays Dove

This card it made for two challenges, the first is for the 12 days of Christmas over on PaperCraft Planet. The challenge was to use 12 embellishments on a card. The other challenge was for Cat's sketch challenge. The background was done by stamping the snowflakes with versamark ink and embossing with clear embossing powder, next I sponged bashful blue over the whole thing. The dove and the sentiment are from The Magic of Christmas from Rupa Shevda by Gina K. Designs. Thank you for stopping by.

Amethyst Dress

I made this card a couple of months ago. I used Retro Boutique from Gina K. Designs and designs by Rupa Shevde. I used almost amethyst card stock and designer paper from SU. For the dress I paper pieced the skirt part and used almost amethyst ink and a aqua pen to color the top. then cut it out with a nestabilities oval die. The background was ran through my cuttlebug and then I sponged over the raised areas with almost amethyst ink. I made the beaded pin by using a pearl pin and adding the beads to it and then an earring back to the end. Thank you for stopping by.
