Aqua Snowman

I created this card using a digi stamp from Prairie Fairy Designs which can be found HERE. I'm entering it in their Fairy Fun Fridays challenge this week which calls for pearls and lace. Can you spot my pearls? I colored them with my Copic to match his hat and put them on him for buttons! You can find the challenge HERE. They're also having a blog hop this week and you can find the beginning of the hop HERE. Phew! That's a lot of links.

The DP is digi paper from Etsy and can be found HERE. The pearls are KaiserCraft and I used polar white Flower Soft for the pom pon on his hat. The snow under him received a coating of Sparkly Fluff. I colored everthing with my Copics, of course. The snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch and the lace is from my stash. It has flowers in the lace but I thought they looked like snowflakes, too.

Thanks for visiting!

Frosty the Snowman

Isn't this snowman just too cute?! He's a little retro and I think he looks like Frosty the Snowman. I found sheet music to Frosty the Snowman on the Internet, printed it out, crinkled it up, smudged some blue ink on the edges and glued it onto my card.

The image is from Stampin' Up! and I colored it with Copics, what there was to color. It's hard to see but there's some white glitter on the ground to look like snow. The DP is digital paper.

Santa!

I think this is just a beautiful Santa. I can't remember who makes the stamp but I use it every Christmas even though it's pretty big and it's difficult to fit any embellishments around it.

I colored the image with Copics, matted it with Bazzill CS, and used digital DP. The rhinestones are from KaiserCraft. I used a silver Spica pen on the bell and Sparkly Fluff on the white part of his hat. That's it; pretty simple.

Copic colors:
Beard - C2
Hat and berries - R27, R24, R22
Holly leaves - G99, G94, G82
Face - E11, E00, E000, R20

Whiff of Joy Christmas


I got this stamp last year from Whiff of Joy and although I love it, it is problematic because it's so big. I usually make cards that are 5.5 x 4.25 or 5.5 x 5.5. To accommodate the large image I had to make a card that measures 9 x 4 which will fit in a business size envelope. Please note that the actual image only has one reindeer pulling her sled but I like to stamp the image twice, cut out just the reindeer, and pop it up on 3D dots so there are two reindeer.

I colored the image with Copics. The DP is K&Co and the cardstock is Bazzill. The snowflakes are Martha Stewart punches and I covered them with pink flocking. The charm is a sled from my stash. I covered the top edge of the sled in white glitter.

Copic colors:
Hat, coat, sled, and boots - R85, R83, R81
Scarf, mittens, skirt, and seat - G99, G94, G82
Shadow - C2
Hair - E35
Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20
Sorry, I didn't write down the colors I used on the reindeer

Ice Skating


When I saw this image last spring I just had to have it. I've had to wait patiently until I could use it (I know it's still a little early for winter scenes but I couldn't wait anymore!).

The image is from Phindy's Place and I colored it with Copics. Both the border punch and the snowflakes are by Martha Stewart. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. They are origianlly white but I colored them with a Copic marker to match. The rhinestones are Kaiser Craft and I got them HERE. The ear muffs where done with liquid applique.

Copics used:
Skirt, leggings, mittens, and scarf - R85, R83, R81
Coat - B97, B95, B93, B91
Roses - R81
Skates - C2
Hair - Y23
Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20

Call Me


I thought the wall on this My Favorite Things image called out for some kind of pattern so I paper pieced it with Basic Grey paper and I think it looks like very chic wallpaper.

I colored the image with Copics and all the DP is Basic Grey. The "flower" was made with the blossom Nestibilities. I used the three smallest dies and then crumpled each layer and put a pearl brad in the center. The pearl brad is from The Hobby House.

Copics used:

Skin - E11, E00, E000
Pants and chair - B97, B95, B93, B91, C02
Shirt and carpet - G99, G94, G82
Phone - R85, R81

Holly Hedgie

I just love these hedgehog stamps and I especially love this one with the holly.

A real CAS card, the image was colored with Copics. The holly berries got a healthy amount of Crystal Effects. The holly leaves I got at Michael's but am not sure of the manufacturer. The DP is digital paper. The cardstock is Papertrey Ink.

Copics used:
Hedgie - C05, C03
Berries - R27, R24, R22
Leaves - G99, G94, G82

Merry Kissmas


When I saw this image I knew I had to have it! It's from my favorite digi artist, Prairie Fairy Designs and it's super fun to color.

I colored the image with Copics and added Crystal Effects to her glasses. The white trim on her coat and hat is polar white Flowersoft. I made the sentiment on my computer. The image and the red scallops around it were cut using Nestibilities.

LOTV


No Christmas card today! I just love this stamp from Lili of the Valley ... a little girl playing dress up and watering Momma's plant. I don't often do distressing but felt the paper and image called out for it.

I colored the stamp with Copics and used Liquid Pearls on the pearl necklace and bracelet. There are Stickles on the centers of the flowers and on the water. The flower is made with the three smallest Nestibilites in the blossom set. The pearls are Kaiser Craft and the pearl brad on the flower is from The Hobby House.

Blue Snowman


Yep, I'm on a snowman kick lately.

The stamp is from Whipper Snapper and I colored it with Copics. I did faux stitching around the image and the felt snowflakes are from SU!. The tiny buttons on the snowman are from some candy that I won so I don't know where they're from. I do know that they're a pain to work with because they're so tiny! The paper is digital paper and I'm not sure where I got it.

I'm entering this card in the Diecut Dreams Christmas Club challenge which you can find HERE.

Turquoise and Brown Snow People

Let it Snow


Another Christmas/winter card! I'm really getting in the swing of them now. I've unearthed all my Christmas stamps, the few embellishments I have, and all my Christmas paper. So watch out!

The stamp is by Whipper Snapper and I colored it with Copics. The sentiment is by a small company for which I've forgotten the name. Snowflake buttons are old from my stash and the DP is Papermania. I used black brads for the buttons on all the snowmen. The CS is Bazzill.

A Rose for Sympathy

This is a sympathy card for my best friend. She has lost three loved ones in the past 5 months. I can't even imagine what she's going through.

The stamp is from SU! and I colored it with Copics. I'm not sure who manufactured the other stamp. The DP is Papermania and the pearls are from Kaiser Craft.

I'm entering this card in the Fairy Fun Fridays challenge #31.

Christmas Every Day

I know, I know it seems a tad early for Christmas cards. But I love making Christmas cards and my Christmas stamps were calling out to me.

The mouse stamp and the sentiment are both Penny Black. I colored the image with Copics and added white glitter to the snow, although you can't really see it in the picture. The white panel is a Cuttlebug embossing folder and the snowflakes are a combination of Martha Stewart and another punch (not sure who makes it). The DP is Lasting Impressions and it's about 6 years old.

I'm entering this card in the Fairy Fun Fridays challenge #31. You should join us; up for grabs are images from the Prairie Fairy herself and you're going to love her artwork!

Little Kisses


What a cute little couple! This stamp is called "Young Love" and it's from Funky Kits. The DP is Basic Grey, the lace is from my stash, and the little squares are from Pezadoodle. I colored the image with Copics.

I'm entering this in Friday Fun Friday's challenge #30.

Box Full of Smiles


This week the challenge over at Fairy Fun Fridays is 3D. You can make a card with a 3D element but I decided to take the challenge literally and make a box full of smiles. What is a box full of smiles you ask? It's a box made out of paper with a mirror in the bottom so when someone removes the lid and looks inside, they see themselves and smile.


I made the box with Bazzill CS. The decorative paper on the box is from a packet I got on sale at Target ages ago. The flower on top is an image from Prairie Fairy Designs that I colored with Copics. I created the sentiment on my computer and the ribbon is from Michael's.

In this picture you can see the mirror in the bottom of the box.

Garden Fairy


Awww, isn't she precious? She's one of the Pure Innocence collection. I found the artist on Etsy selling digi images but lost the link. My Favorite Things also sells stamps by the artist.

I colored the image with Copics and the DP is from Papermania. The flowers are roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. They are originally white and I colored them with my Copics to match my colors.

In the Dog House


I have collected some dog stamps and this is one of them. The dog looks so patient waiting by his dog house. Maybe waiting for his boy to come home from school?

The stamp is by Penny Black and I colored it with Copics. I got the DP ages ago at Michael's and got the ribbon from a store on Etsy that I lost the link for. I cut out the image with Nestibilities.
