Thank You Kitten




Today's image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  What a sweet little kitten!  The image is colored with Copic markers.  I used a die set from Frantic Stampers.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.  I wanted to put some type of bling on the center of the ribbon.  This one had a yellow center.  I was able to color it red with my markers.  The papers are from My Mind's Eye.

Here Comes the Easter Bunny


I am not supposed to be working on cards right now.  I had the image of this bunny in my head and couldn't resist.  Seems like addict behavior, but I definitely could be addicted to something worse than card making!

This image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I colored it with Copics.  The flowers are all from my stash.  I finally figured out the bow!  I looked at previous cards from years ago and I loved how I did the bow.  Since I started making cards again I could not for the life of me make a decently shaped bow.  Well, going through my stash while organizing I found Bow Easy.  I had completely forgotten that I owned it.  There shall be no more problems with bows!  The tickets I had gotten as a freebie one time.  Here goes the Copics list.  It's a big one!

Life is Better with Friends

This image, Climbing Clemantis, is from Power Poppy.  It is colored with Copics.  The flourishes did not photograph well.  They are made of a plastic instead of crystal.  The look okay in real life, but not in photographs.  I would not buy them again.    The image is colored with Copics:

Caught One!



 This image is from Power Poppy.  I have been wanting to do a masculine card.  Now I'm ready for Father's Day.  The image is colored with Copic markers.  The paper is from Stampin' Up.  I added a little Wink of Stella to the brighter colors of the fish to give it the look of iridescence.

Little Miss Miracle



Today's card uses an image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Goodness.  She is obviously fashioned after Shirley Temple.  I'm planning on making this a belated birthday card when I finish the inside.  She is colored with Copic markers.  The paper is from my stash.  I noticed I have been printing my images a little larger lately.  I need to cut down the size so I can decorate the card more. 

 I had a Shirley Temple doll just like this one.  The dress was white with red polka dots.  She was one of my favorite dolls.  I moved from foster family to foster family growing up so I don't know where she ended up.  It would have been nice to still have her. 

Apparently Franklin Delanor Roosevelt nicknamed her "Little Miss Miracle" for raising the country's morale during the Great Depression.

Pretty Tulips




 This image is from Power Poppy.  I have had it for years and this is the first time I got around to coloring it.  My only dilemma was what color to make the tulips.  There are just so many choices.  I went with pink tipped in yellow.  I had tulips just like this in my garden when I lived in New Jersey.  Living in Arizona I don't bother to try to grow too much of anything outside.  If you don't water at least twice a day everything dies.  The only thing I can grow well here seems to be cherry tomatoes.  I can grow them like a weed.

I colored the image with Copic markers.  The paper is from KandK company.  It is actually a glitter paper, but that doesn't show in the photos.  I now have glitter all over my crafting room!  I also used black silk ribbon and pearls.

Copics:  C00, 0, 1, E40, 41, 42, 43, R11, 20, Y11, YG11, 61, 63, 67

Snow Leopard 2


I have been on a coloring binge lately.  I may need to hire someone to do my cleaning and laundry...haha!  I originally colored this image back in 2014.  I have always loved it so I thought I'd have a go at it again.  I need to get back into animals a little more.  This image is from Sparkle 'n Sprinkle.  I entered this card into their Facebook challenge.  I colored it with Copic markers.  The cardstock is actually a grayish brown.  It appears more green in the photograph.

Christmas Rocking Horse

This is my first entry to The Holly and the Ivy Christmas Challenge as a member of their Design Team. Challenge #45 starts today and it is an "Anything Christmas Goes" challenge.   Please come
and join us.

I used an image from Whimsy Stamps and paper from Carina Gardner.  The ribbon is from Stampin' Up.  The sentiment is from LOTV.  I have been using them a lot lately. The image was colored with Copics.  I recently started refilling my markers.  Boy, did they give me a time.  Even though I filled them with the correct weight of ink and left the caps off so the ink would stabilize within the marker barrel I had some still run.  I fixed it as best I could.

Copics:  B21, 23, 24, C00, 0, 01, 02, 03,

Sweet Little Blue-Eyed Girl



 Today's card uses an image from Simply Adorable by Sugar Nellie called Lizzie.  I actually colored it about three years ago, right before I stopped making cards.  I have kept her knowing I would finish it someday.  I colored it with Copic markers.  I didn't keep the list of colors.  The paper is from my stash.

You Brighten My Day



I got a couple new stamps yesterday and couldn't resist doing some coloring.  This one took quite a while and I think I used more colors than I have ever used on one image.  The stamp is Back Porch by Whimsy Stamps.  This is an actual rubber stamp.  I have always stayed away from them like the plague.  I could never get the images stamped fully and I would get ink all over the place.  Stamparatus from Stampin' Up fixed those problems.  It is the ultimate stamping tool!  

I colored the image with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from Lily of the Valley.  The paper is Circa 1934 by Cosmo Cricket.  I am discovering so many goodies that I had forgotten about!

Copics:  C1, 2, E31, 33, 34, 35, G 20, 21, 24, 94, R24, 35, 37, 39, 43, 46

This image is from QKR Stampede.  It is colored with Copic markers.  I had this in my stash already colored and I had forgotten about it.  It's nice to have pictures ready to go.

Lots of Cardmaking During the Blizzard!

This is the heaviest I have seen snow since moving to Arizona almost thirty years ago. Since we are in the midst of a blizzard, fourteen inches so far,  I decided to finish up some cards I had already colored the images for.  This is a very picture laden post.  

These cards were made for the Splitcoast Stamper's 2019 Christmas Challenge.  The goal is to get to next December without having to make a load of cards in December.  I have already finished enough cards for my mailing list.  I committed to four cards a month.  I still have fourteen to make.  I am avoiding the July challenge of fun folds or shaped cards and October which is white cards.  Those eight will probably be the last I get done.


Decorative Wreath

This image is from Isabella's Sketchbook.  I use it very often.  It is colored with Copics  This time I did the grapes green instead of purple and the holly leaves are lighter than usual.  I really dislike the color choices this time and will definitely revert back to the other colors next time.

Copics:  C00, 0, 01, E35, G12, 20, 21, 24, R22, 24, 27, 29,    35, 37
Y19, 38, YG91, 93, 95, YR16, 18, 21, 23, 24

Wreath with Oranges


 This image is from Flourishes.  Most of the time I have seen it colored, the balls are colored as if they are Christmas ornaments.  I assumed they must be fruit because they all have leaves attached so I decided to color them as oranges.  I colored it with Copic markers.

Copics:  C00, 0, 01, E31,34. G24, 94, R22, 24,   29, 35, 39
Y28, YG03, 13, 17, 67, 93


 Jingle All the Way


 This is a stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The die cut in the center is from Spellbinder's.  The image is colored with Copic markers.

Copics:  G94, R24, 27, Y23, 26, 28, YG61, 63


 Pink Poinsettia


This image is from Power Poppy.   It is colored with Copic markers.  I used a beautiful silk ribbon for embellishment and a bell charm from Stampin' Up.

Copics:  E40, 41. 42 G20, 21, 24, R00, 01, 11, Y26, YG 91

 


Cardinal Chateau


 This image is from C.C. Designs.  It is colored with Copic markers.  I used a Spellbinder's die to cut the edge of the card. I have had the dies for several years, but never used them.  
The ribbon is from Stampin' Up.






 Tired Santa
 
 This is an image from Whimsy stamps.  I colored it with Copic markers.  The paper is from  Stampin' Up.

Copics:  BG0000, 000, 01, C1, E00, 02, 11, R11, 12, 20, 21, 22, 27


Santa's Laundry


I believe this was a Whimsy stamp set.  It is a very large card.  It fits in a standard #10 envelope.  The images are colored with Copic markers.
