It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I apologize for being MIA this past week.  It's been crazy around here getting everyone ready for Halloween and booking events for the upcoming weeks.  I have a great opportunity with one of the newest communities in our area to participate in their Christmas event and I have something booked every weekend through Christmas!  The pressure's on! LOL

Today I have a great idea to share with you!  It's a hand made ornament!  I used one of the clear ornaments and embossed a backgound image on the transparency.  I then stamped my cute little elf on cardstock and attached him to the transparency and put it in the ornament!  Add a little festive ribbon and  and some snow and you have an adorable decoration for your tree!

You could personalize these with a photo and/or print out of the year or event!  The possibilities are endless!

Merry Little Snowman

I have the cutest snowman to share with you today!  I have wanted this stamp from Stampin Up since I first saw it in the catalog  I love his size!  It's hard to find  stamps that allow you to fill up space on your cards! This one is perfect!
I started by stamping the snoman on shimmery white cardstock (I just love that sparkle) and colored him with my Copic Markers.  You can see the detail here on this close up.  I used the Copic Opaque White Ink to make the dots on his scarf.  It creates nice texture and draws your eye in. 
Once I got him all colored I assembled the card and added the long ribbon and finished it off with a Tiny Tag attached with DMC floss.  The ribbon has wire in it and creates a nice "puffy" bow which reminds me of a beautiful Christmas package. 
Here it is all assembled and complete! There are a few more favorites in this set which I will be sharing with you in the next week.   Enjoy!

A Goal and the cutest little snowman!

It's Wednesday already and I haven't comleted half the stuff I wanted to do this week!  What I have accomplished is hitting my goal weight and I didn't think that last pound would ever go away!  Between alternating running and the Y every other day, I have made great accomplishments getting into shape!  Saturday I finally hit my goal weight!  If you are struggling with those pounds as I was, don't give up!  You will get there, just keep telling yourself I CAN do it and I WILL!  I would have never considered myself a runner but I am here today to tell you I AM a runner!  Every day I do a little better and accomplish a little  more.  It is a very satisfying feeling to say I can do this!  We are already signed up for our next 5K! 
On to today's card!  I made this with all intentions of using a cerain paper I had stashed away for the perfect card but got so excited coloring, it didn't even match when I was done! LOL  I pulled out my snowflake embossing folder and my Pear Pizazz ink and inked up the embossing folder and embossed white paper so the snoflakes stand out and the inking colored the background!  I love the bold white look!
The image is colored with my Copics and I have added some "shimmery snow" details with the clear Spica Glitter Pen!  If you haven't tried these they are a must! The glitter is actually tine particles of glass and they hav an awesome sparkle!  If  you only buy one get the clear, you can use it on anything!  It does't show up well in the photo but it adds a nice "wow" in person!

Halloween Treats Raisin Boat Challenge

This months challenge over at Raisin Boat was a treat for Halloween! Mine was simple but when you have to make for a large group I do simple. I make a "treat" for my co workers for all of the significant holidays. Some of them have a years worth in their desks!

I used a cellophane bag and added my candy and added the tie with a cute little tag! You could change the stamp and color to accommodate any holiday or occasion!

Hop on over to Raisinboat to see the other awesome projects have been created by the talented Raisin Boat Crew!

Bless Your Little Hearth

Happy Monday Peeps!  It was a fast weekend.  All day Saturday was spent shopping the thrift shops for Halloween attire!  WHERE in the world do they get all that "stuff" to sell?  It was hard to find something when you're not sure what you're going to be but I managed to find two things.  One I'll wear for another party coming up!

I was cleaning up the craftroom this week and looked through all of my shape dies and said to myself I really need to be using these so that was my challenge for this week....USE THEM!

I stamped the Chantango Hearth stamp on my paper and colored him with my copics and when I went to cut him out with the die I was a little short on the bottom so lesson #1 makes sure you have plenty of "space" for your dies to cut!  I managed to find a "fix" with my ribbon.  After all of that coloring I didn't want to trash it! lol

I found a sketch on pinterest and went to work assembling my card.  I did use quite a bit of patterned paper which I find is another thing I don't use very often but I LOVE to collect it! 

I challenge all of my readers to use something they have set aside.  It's quite refreshing and a great challenge!

Happy Holidays Fuzzy Copic Bears

I'm trying to get in the holiday groove early this year as I am in the process of planning my holiday classes.  I was going through my Christmas stamps and found these bears and they just seemed to be calling "color us".  I haven't done a project with my copics using the "fur" technique so off I went on this sidetracked adventure! I ended up using 22 markers to color these little "cuties" and a red spica pen!   They turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself!
Once I completed the coloring I automatically started cutting them out, nother chore in itself and I have looked at them for two days and finally decided on a design for them!  I layered the top note die onto a scalloped edged and dot embossed background and popdotted the bears!  There had to be a little ribbon as what's a Christmas card without a bow so I decided on the green!
Back to selecting stamps for my classes now!

Cocktail? and a Homecoming dance

The house is so quiet this morning!  I dropped off the high schooler, hit the gym and then took the dog for a long walk!  Packed up my card submissions that are being sent out for publication and almost ready to head to make a couple of returns. 

Its been a nice three day weekend although I feel like we spent the most of it getting ready for homecoming dance!  I can't believe she's in high school, much less heading out to these dances!  Anyhoo, here she is.  We had her hair done Saturday morning and I did  her makeup that afternoon.  She had a great time but I'm glad they don't come along often as it's a small forture! lol  And, of course, Sadie had to have a little "bling" bow too  :)


Now on to today's card!  It's a Krafty Kimmie's Stamp called Perfect Potion!  I thought it was adorable but didn't realize how much work it was to color!  I think it turned out fantastic though!  I love the deep colors.  Her dress is purple but I photographed it every which way I could think of and it still shows blue in the pic!  It's still cute as can be! 

I layered the cardstock and embossed the green and purple pieces with the chevron embossing folder by Stampin Up!  I cut her out and attached her to the die cut piece and distressed the edges.  I also added a little ink to the bow to distress it and knock off the bright white.

Happy Birthday Christa! Can you say FABULOUS!

Color Me Rad, it doesn't get more colorful than this!

What a wonderful weekend we had.  For some time now I have had the urge to RUN!  I never considered myself a runner but for some weird reason it just hit me so I talked to my daughter and we decided to sign up for a 5k RUN!  Now the big questions was what run should we do?  We had no idea there were so many choices.  Once we found the Color Me Rad run and knew it was the one to start with! 

This day started in a nice bright white shirt, RAD sunglasses (we girly girls had to have pink).  I have never seen so many people wearing white! 
After a few announcement, pep talks and random give aways, or should I say throw aways as they just threw stuff into the audience, we were ready to go!  Our run took us through the trails of the Jacksonville Equestrian Center, a nice wooded path with a few bomb squads to pass.  At each bomb squad station, we were met with bombers with LOTS of color and they didn't hold back.  We were doused with color, head to toe!  At the end of the race, there was a grand finale celebration of....you guess it, color bombing!  What started out good clean fun, ended up an awesome colorful day!

If you ever get the chance to participate in one of these event, don't miss your chance!  It's a great family outing, and if you're not a runner you can walk the course!  There were two 78 year old ladies that did just that and they were just as colorful as we were....and excited too!

We have already found our next race...the Color In Motion....same concept, lots of color, LOADS of fun! 

Speaking of color, here is a photo of the Copics I used to create ONE card tonight!  It took me all night to do one project!  I will share it with you once I get it all together!

Oops a Daisy, Thinking of You

We've made it through another week!  TGIF!  It's supposed to be a beautiful weeknd here in Sunny Florida and we will spend some time outside enjoying it!  I'll fill you in on Monday! :)

Todays card is made using the Raisin Boat Oops a Daisy set.   I love to color the daisies with my Copic markers.  They just seem to come to life once you add in the shading.  I kept it simple but I think it gives it a very elegant look.  What do you think?


I hope everyone has a safe and blessed weekend.  Enjoy!

Faux Washi Tape TUTORIAL

Here we are fast approaching another weekend.  It's been a busy week, cardmaking, paintng and homework! 

I have a huge room for my studio and it's always a work in progess trying to find the pefect solution to storing everything!  Well I have eliminated having a collection of one thing...washi tape!  I have nevre bought any and once I learned this technique I never will! 

We will start with the following Supplies...

Heavy Duty Double Sided Carpet Tape
Tissue Paper
Stamp of your choice (Wow the possibilities there!)
Momento Black Stamp Pad
Copic Marker of your choice (BIG WOW for possibilities)

Start by adhering your tisue paper to the Double sided tape.  Do not remove the backing (smooth side) until you are ready to adhere to your card.  Use your finger to rub the tissue to make sure it' all in place.

Trim to the side of the tape. Don't worry if it wrinkles, just use your finger to smooth it out!

Stamp your image onto the tissue papered side of the tape. I chose the Lollipop Stamp from Raisin Boat.   

Using ANY color Copic Marker (WOW WOW WOW) and color your image.  I suggest one color unless  you are very careful as it will run.

Cut it to size and remove the backing and apply to your project!  You can cut it to a small width or make it as long as you want as it is in a roll! 
If you have any questions, please leave a comment or email me directly!  I would love to see your projects using faux washi tape!  Link them in the comments to share!

Embossed Shimmer Hello!

Pin It

TGIF!!!  I cannot believe last week this time I was just getting ready to start my Copic Certification classes!  It  has been a fast and busy week.  I believe there are fourteen weeks until Christmas! 

I was cleaning in my room last night and my Copics were calling my name so I sat down and colored up this flower. I made lots of shimmer accents on the petals and leaves with my Spica pens and sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer to compliment them.. It creates an interesting but subtle finish to the cardstock

I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable weekend!

Trick or Treat with a Jack o Lantern

This week is just flying by!  Busy weekend ahead with football game, class and whatever else comes our way! 

Todays card is made using the Stampin Up Top Note Die to create the Jack o Lantern and the EK Success punch to do the face.  I cut the top of the top note die for the "lid" and used ink to shade around the face and edges.  For a finishing touch I used my white Signo pen to "stitch" around the pumpkin.

You could do many variations of this card by changing the colors to create different characters such as Frank, a witch, ghost or even a scarecrow and that's just for Halloween! :)

Happy Owloween with Copic Markers

Happy Hump Day! I am recovering from a major sinus headache and my head still hurts even though the pain is gone. Bring on the change of weather!

Todays card is made using the Outlines Stamps from Hampton Arts. I colored the cute little owl and pumpkins with my Copic Markers. I'm working on new techniques but it's going to take a while to incorporate them all into my creations!

I did a lot of shading and accented the owl hat and cape with the spica glitter pens. They add such a nice subtle shimmer to any project. I also outlined the spider web with the black spica. his eyes are highlighted in Opaque White.

The edges have been distressed and shaded and layered with dimensionals.

Totally Witchin! I'm Copic Certified!!!

Greetings from Not so Sunny Florida!  I've been busy the last week getting projects done and a quick trip to Orlando for Copic Certification!  I received my Standard AND Intermediate Certifications in one weekend!  It was a ton of great information to grasp but it was so much fun!  Glad to be back home to my girls.  The little four legged one missed me so much she made herself sick! :(  Not so much fun! LOL
 Taking the certification class brought on a whole new beginning of the way I look at things. They are not so simple anymore! It's a whole new ballgame! So be on the lookout for some "out of the box" creations!
 I actually made this card before I went to class It was made using a My Favorite Things stamp set and Stampin Up background stamp, background paper and cardstock. 
Don't forget to check out the Designed to Color magazine website for their latest issue.  I have two cards published in that issue and will have a couple more published later this year in other publications!  Thanks for stopping by!

Raisin Boat 3D Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone!  I hope it is as beautiful where you are as it is in sunny Florida!  It's been a busy week around here and I'm catching up on some deadlines and taking care of a few things around the house.

Today's card is a Challenge posted over at the Raisin Boat Blog.  You can hop over and give it a try and see what other fellow stampers are doing!  There are  some great ideas there!

I just love the cute little party car they have and used it for my Challenge.  I cut it out in pieces and layered each piece for my 3D look.  I used the Diva cystal clear to make my car and tail lights "shiny".  I used the Signo silver pen for the bumber and light over the license plate and colored the tail lights and tires with my copics!

Faux Washi Tape with Raisin Boat

TGIF everyone! First I want to thank all of my new followers for joining me. It's been a growing week! I'm excited to share my creations with everyone.

Today's card is made with Raisin Boat stamps and faux washi tape. I have so many cool stamps I figured I might as well make the washi tape in the colors and designs I wanted. I will be posting a tutorial next week on creating your own tape.

I cut my strips to the desired width and length added my image and done! I don't make my washi tape until I know what I'm going to do and the colors I need. I put the leftover scraps in a little box and can easily incorporate them into any card!

Trick or Treat Halloween Sampler

I have been on overload making these and giving classes in them. The classes are a three part series. We did Halloween and will follow with Thanksgiving and Christmas!

I have used punches, stamps and dies to creat each square. The coloring is done with Copics of course!

I plan on putting mine in the niche as you walk in the door and change out the insert for each holiday that way I'm not dragging down one decoration to out up another!

Kindness Matters Distressed Manila Tag

It's another rainy Monday in not so sunny Florida thanks to hurricane Isaac! Thankfully we are not expecting a lot of activity just some rain and a little wind from the bands.

I stayed in yesterday after a busy Friday and Saturday and decided to do a little "out of the box" designing. I used the Tim Holtz distressed inks to color my tag and stamped the images in the new "in colors" from Stampin Up.

I colored my butterfly with my Copics (yg04 and yg68) scored the middle and attached him with a dimensional so he looks like he is flying.

The background is stamped tone on tone using Primerose Petal. Finally three tiny buttons accent the edge.

Happy Monday everyone. Our prayers are with those in the path of Isaac! Stay safe!

I just received the North Pole Toymakers stamp set so I incorporated the stamps into the sketch!

I LOVE this image as it's great to color with my Copic markers. The ball at the end of his hat is done with liquid applique and the tools are highlighted with the Spica clear glitter pen.  I used the lollipop stamp to create the pattened paper on the side bar.

Get Well with Oops a Daisy

I have used this set in so many colors to create so many different flowers. Today I made it into a sunflower. It's the Raisin Boat Set Oops a Daisy!

I colored the flower with my Copics and used the dot to create the pattern on the left side. The edges of the white were distressed with a brown ink pad.

I added an extra photo of the flower so you could see the detail I added using the spica pens.

Miss you with For the Birds

Hello everyone! It's jump day and August 1st. I can't believe in just a few weeks school will start again. The summer has flown by once again.

Today's card is made using the Stampin Up set For the Birds. I just love this set and it has become a standard go to for coloring with my Copic Markers.

I started with a "portrait" card following a sketch and there was just too much white so I switched to landscape and really likes the look. I finished off with a coordinating bow.

Shake your Booty

I swore I wasn't going to get this set from Stampin Up but that witch boot won me over. There were just too many things to do with the dots on the boot. My first thought was googlie eyes and here it is!

I used my dimensionals and attaches it to the top note die and stamped the saying separate. I colored the boot with my Copics and accented with the lavender spica pen. The background was embossed with the snow burst embossing folder

A Sugar Hi

With as much as I like candy, although its off the list of what I can eat, I just had to have this set from Raisin Boat. The candy stamps included are so versatile.

I used the spiral round to make the lollipop which matches the lollipop background stamp. I stamped the candy sticks an added the candies on top. I added the ice ice stickles to the swirls to make them a little more delicious!

TGIF in 3D

Happy Friday everyone. We are settling back in from our trip and getting back in the groove of our daily routine.

Today's care was made in bits and pieces and then I decided to put it all together in this 3D card! I cut the base of the card and then the opening and started creating my layers. It's not as hard as it looks.

All of the images were colored with Copics then cut out and attached. So cute! I will provide a layout of the scores next week so you can make your own.

Celebrate with Raisin Boats Sweet Treats

Hello everyone. Today's card is for the monthly Raisin Boat Challenge. This months theme is Birthday!

My card was created from the sweet treats set. I used the gum all machine which is just so cute. I colored I with my Copics and cut it out. I added diamond glaze to the gum balls to make them shiny.

I also stamped the single gum all to make a cute little background.

I hope everyone is staying cool. It's no so humid thank goodness.

Today's card is made using the new stamp set from Stampin Up called for the birds. Lots of Copic opportunity here! I also used the spica pens for a little bling!

I layered the stamped image in black and then one of the framelits from the apothecary set for the red behind the black mat. I matted the base with the yellow polka dot paper. It's just do fun and cheery!

Happy Birthday with Pleasant Poppies

Another Monday! Here we roll again.

I just love the cheerfulness of today's card. It is made with the new Pleasant Poppies stamp from Stampin Up. The sentiment is from Terrific Tags.

I colored the poppies with my Copic markers and used the new polka dot paper for my background. I hope all of you are practicing your perfect bows. Practice really pays off.

Continuing on with my C25K program as well as the gym three times a week. Last week I added an awesome core work out that left me in pain. It will feel so good when it stops hurting!

Thanks for your Support

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful 4th! I have missed posting the last week as a lot has been going on. I have three cards sent off for upcoming publications in magazines and am working on a few more to be sent in for consideration.

I have also started the C25K program. It's not as easy as you think. I never really thought about running a 5K but as they say never say never!

Today's card was a quickie! I used the new Stampin Up set For the Birds. Nice practice for coloring with Copics in small spaces! :)

I matted the image on a scalloped edge piece of stampin up cardstock and just happened to have the perfect blue ribbon to match the card base!

Stay cool this weekend. Hopefully it will be a little cooler here. I've got some training to do!
