Sweet Angel

 

 chose another Mo's Digital Pencil image for this Christmas card.  I am on a Christmas card roll right now!  I colored the image with Copic markers.  This is one of my favorite images.  She is just so prescious.  I make a couple cards using her every Christmas.  The paper is from my stash.

Old Window


    

I merged two images from Mo's Digital image to make this card.  I also merged this little cutie with a picture of a door to be completed later.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I used a Snow Pen and a heat gun to add snow to the windows and ground.  The die cut pine branches were cut with Stampin' Up dies.   The paper is from my stash.  Unfortunately, it is my last piece of this paper.  I would have liked to use it with the door image, also.

Twinkle & Shine

I have quite a few Precious Moments images.  I used to collect Precious Moments figurines and plates for my two daughters when they were young.  They were left behind when they grew up so I still have a shelf full of them in the hallway.  

I used Copic markers to color the image.  I filled in the corner snowflakes with Stickles and added Wink of Stella to the light bulbs.  The sentiment was done with the Spellbinder's Glimmer System.I got the beautiful die from a friend.  It actually cut very well, but took me about twenty minutes to clean out the die afterwards.,  It was worth the time, though.

Smile for the Camera


This week's challenge at The Outlawz Monday Greetings is "For Him."  This image is from Twinkle Lane Designs.  It comes in a pre-colored version as well as the original digi that I used.  I colored the image with Copic markers.The background paper is also from Twinkle Lane Designs.  As much as I love those old fashioned photo corners they were a royal pain to attach.  They were made with a punch from Martha Stewart.  I don't remember who makes the film strip.  It was clear, but I colored it with my markers.

What a Sweet Witch

 
I had quite a bit of fun coloring this image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I just adore the look on her face.
  I colored the image with Copic markers.  The paper has been in my stash forever. 
 I almost never make Halloween cards so the paper never gets used.  
I'm sure I'll get another on or two Halloween cards in this year.

Barrel of Flowers

 
 
For this card I used an image that I got for free years ago.  I have a folder named  Flower Freebies.  It's anybody's guess who made it.  It just appealed to me while I was browing images for the stash of birthday cards I'm making.  I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and used mineral spirits to blend the pencils.  The paper is from my stash.  I actually still have the pack, but unfortunately am just too lazy right now to go dig it out.

Swinging with Bear


 

For this card I used an image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I have had this for a long while.  I end up buying so many images that I can't seem to find the time to use them all.  I picked this one tonight because the apples on our green apple tree are ready to pick.  My grandsons have been asking me since the apples were about an inch in diameter if they could pick them.  The answer was always the same "they are not ready yet."  Well now they are, so Grandpa and I are going to pull out the ladder tomorrow morning and let the boys pick apples.  Then we'll make some applesauce for them to take home.

I colored this image with Copic markers.   

The paper I have had in my stash forever, but I don't recall who makes it.  

The ribbon is from Stampin' Up.

Sunset Birthday and Bird in Nest



I actually made a card that was not for a design team.  I created this card with one of Divinity Design's Blessings Boxes.  It's a box received in the mail quarterly.  It contains all kinds of goodies.  This was my first try at blending a sky.  When I first tried it I hated it.  I left the panel on my craft desk where I could see it for about a month.  I planned on throwing it out.  I finally decided that I didn't absolutely hate it and put it on a card.  I  need lots of practice with blending so expect to see more of this type of card.  I used Distressed Inks for the blending.

Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes


Another card that has been sitting on my desk is this one.  It's another I didn't really like.  Actually I have not grown to like this one, but it was all done except the inside so I decided to complete it.


The images are from Beccy's Place.  I colored them with Copic Markers. They also come pre-colored.   I then fussy cut the images and attached them to a printed vellum.
