Pixie Magic





Hello everyone and happy Sunday :) I'm finally back :) I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are having a wonderful weekend. We had a lovely Thanksgiving and then hubby and I braved the crowds Friday and Saturday for some shopping. It really wasn't too bad at all, we went later in the day so I think we missed the worst of it.

I have two cards for ya today. They both use images from the Faerie Song Art Stamps collection at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. The first card uses Bryony. These stamps are awesome, they stamp beautifully and are a dream to color. I stamped Bryony with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Papertrey Ink white cardstock and colored her in with copics. I added Stickles to her wings and used my Sakura glitter pen to accent the flowers in her hair. I next created my card base out of SU's Sage Shadow. I layered Pretty in Pink on top of that followed by Perfect Plum, followed by my design paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I then mounted my image onto my SU cardstock and adhered the image panel onto the card base using dimensionals. I used my nesties tag trio to create the tag. The sentiment is from High Hopes. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and a glittery Making Memories brad.

The second card uses Lost in Thought Faerie. I colored her in with copics and added Stickles to her wings. I used Versamagic Perfect Plumeria ink for sponging around the image. I then created my card base out of SU's Handsome Hunter. I layered Always Artichoke on top of that followed by Elegant Eggplant followed by my design paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I then mounted my image onto my SU cardstock and used my SU ticket corner punch on all the corners. I placed pearls on all the corners and mounted my image panel onto my card base using dimensionals. The ribbon is from M's and the flowers are Primas.

I hope you like the cards. I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine :)

Snow Fun



Happy Tuesday everyone! :) I hope your week is off to a great start :) I'm so excited for the four-day weekend coming up. I just have to make it through the next two days, which are crazy! :)

I have a quick posting for ya today. I decided to use another Spiral Whisper stamp for my card today. This one is called Milly and Snowman. I first stamped the image with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and then colored it in with my copics. I added Stickles everywhere (I may have gone a little overboard with the stickles :):):):)) and I sponged around the image with SU's Bashful Blue ink. Next, I created my card base (which measures 5 1/2 by 4 1/4) out of SU's Night of Navy. I layered Bravo Burgundy on top of that followed by Handsome Hunter and then my design paper from K&Co. I tied a navy blue ribbon from Michael's dollar bin around the main panel. I tied the snowman charm (which I found at Wal-Mart) into the bow. I then used my nestabilities to cut out the scalloped rectangles and mounted the image panel to the card base using dimensionals.

It's a pretty simple layout, but I'm pleased with how it turned out. I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine :)

Blog Award and Some Exciting News!!! :)



Hi everyone :) I'm sorry I don't have a project to share with you today. I didn't get my card completely finished yesterday and by the time I got home from work today, it was dark and I couldn't photograph it. I'll have something up for ya tomorrow :)

I would like to thank Suzanne Dean over at Scrap Bitz for this award. It is such an honor Suzanne, thank you SO much! I am supposed to pass this on to 8 bloggers, but again, I could no sooner chose a favorite stamp or book, you are all so wonderful, so I give it to all of you :) Thank you all so much for visiting my blog, leaving me such wonderful comments, and for inspiring me so much. Lots of hugs to you! :)

Well, that's all for today. I'm off to craft and spend some time with hubby. Hope you are all having a wonderful day.

Hugs, Christine :)

Robin Hood and Maid Marian



Happy Sunday everyone! :) Phew! This card was certainly a labor of love. I have literally been working on this card all day long today, but I'm really pleased with the result, so it was worth it :)

I love, love, love these stamps by Spiral Whisper. The background is called Castle on the Hill. I love this background stamp, it is so detailed and is so much fun to color. I stamped it with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with copics. I stamped it two more times for the castle and popped the castle twice with dimensionals to give it some dimension. I then stamped Maid Milly and Robin Hood Max onto a separate sheet of GP cardstock, colored them with copics, and cut them out. I added stickles to their outfits (of course :) ).

Next, I created my card base (which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2) out of SU's Always Artichoke. I layered Elegant Eggplant on top of that followed by my design paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time collection. I added a purple ribbon from M's and then I mounted my main image (which I layered on top of Elegant Eggplant and Always Artichoke) onto the card base using dimensionals. I then mounted Millie and Max onto the image using dimensionals.

What do you think? Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I'll be back here tomorrow with another project.

Hugs, Christine :)

Dashing Through the Snow




Hi everyone,

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a while. I was fighting a sinus infection and I think I finally won :)

My card today uses one of my favorite stamps by Whiff of Joy. I stamped the image with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with copics. I then stamped the image again for the extra reindeer, colored him with copics, and cut him out. I added stickles everywhere (ya know I love my stickles :) ) and I also added pearls to Charlotte's jacket. I layered the image panel onto SU's Handsome Hunter followed by Bravo Burgundy followed by Night of Navy. I used SU's ticket corner punch on the corners and added pearls to each corner.

I next created my card base (which measures 5x7) out of SU's Handsome Hunter. I layered Bravo Burgundy on top of that followed by Night of Navy and then my design paper from K&Co. I used some red ribbon from Michael's across the card and tied a bow. I then mounted my image panel to the card base using dimensionals. I used my new tag trio nestabilities to cut out the tag and then I stamped my sentiment, which is a clear $1 Studio G stamp. I then placed pearls on each side of the tag.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and I'll be back tomorrow with another project.

Hugs, Christine :)

Christmas Tilda



Happy Wednesday everyone! :) I was so excited to ink up my new Christmas Tilda for my card today. I used this week's Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast for my layout.

First, I stamped the branch (from Magnolia stamps) with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with copics. I added Diamond Stickles to the ornaments. I then sponged around the image using SU's Always Artichoke ink. Next, I stamped Tilda on a separate sheet of GP cardstock, colored her with copics, cut her out, and added Gold Stickles to her wings.

Next, I created my card base (which measures 5 1/2 by 4 1/4) out of SU's Always Artichoke cardstock. I layered Bravo Burgandy on top of that followed by my design paper from the new Christmas stack from K & Co. I then layered my image onto Always Artichoke followed by Bravo Burgandy and then adhered the panel onto the card base using dimensioanls. I then cut out my squares and layered them onto the card with dimensionals for added pop. I adhered Tilda to the image panel with dimensioanls as well (you know I love my dimensionals! :):):)). For a finishing touch, I added Primas and a pearl.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

High Hopes Challenge #8



Happy Tuesday everyone :) I'm sorry I haven't posted in a couple of days, but I've been fighting a sinus infection. I'm feeling a bit better this evening and I hope to be back to normal soon :)

My card today is my submission for this week's challenge over at High Hopes. Our challenge this week was to use both buttons and brads on our cards.

For my card, I first stamped the reflecting pond (from High Hopes) onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with my copics. I then masked it and stamped the castle (also from High Hopes) behind it. I colored the castle and the surrounding landscape with my copics as well. Next, I stamped the princess and the frog (both from High Hopes) onto GP cardstock, colored them with copics, cut them out, and added stickles.

Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Sage Shadow. I layered Pretty in Pink on top of that followed by Perfect Plum. I then adhered my design paper, from DCWV's Once Upon a Time Stack, as well as a pink ribbon from Michael's dollar bin. Next, I layered my image panel onto Perfect Plum, followed by Pretty in Pink, followed by Sage Shadow. I used SU's ticket corner punch in the corners and added pink sparkly brads from Memory Makers to each corner. I then adhered the image panel to the card base using dimensionals. I adhered the princess and the frog to the image as well using dimensionals. Finally, I adhered my "buttons" (I actually don't have any buttons (I know, I know, I need to get some ASAP :) ) so I used brads in the shape of buttons but cut off the prongs) to the card base.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you are all having a wonderful week. More tomorrow :)
Hugs, Christine :)

May Your Wishes Come True



Happy Saturday everyone :) Hope your weekend is off to a great start :) I have a quick post for you today, I have to run several errands this morning and then this afternoon, I'm meeting some stamping buddies for some stamping fun :)

For my card today, I stamped the wishing well, from High Hopes, with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with copics. I added some glitter to the flowers with my Sakura glitter pen. I then used my rectangle nestabilities to cut it out. Next, I stamped the unicorn and princess (also from High Hopes) onto GP cardstock, colored them in with copics, and cut them out. I added Stickles to the princess's crown and dress and to the unicorn's horn. Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Elegant Eggplant. I layered Handome Hunter on top of that followed by my design paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I added a purple ribbon from M's dollar bin. I then used my rectangle nestabilities to cut out the scalloped rectangles and mounted my main image onto that. I then mounted that onto the card base with dimensionals. I also mounted the unicorn and the princess with dimensionals. I then stamped the sentiment, from Verve, and used my circle nestabilities and scalloped circle nesties to cut it out. I adhered it to the card base with dimensionals. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and a glittery Making Memories brad.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

A Circus Show



Happy Friday everyone :) I'm so glad the weekend is finally here. I hope to get a lot of stamping done! :)

My card today is my submission for three different challenges, all in one :) First, I again used this week's Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast. I really enjoy using this sketch. This card is also my submission for this week's challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar. Our challenge this week was to create a card for a child. Finally, this card is also my second submission to this week's challenge over at High Hopes. Our challenge this week was to use sparkle on our cards.

For my card, I first stamped Max the Magnificent (from High Hopes) onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored him in with copics. I added Stickles to his hat, coat, and bow tie, as well as to the stars on the stand. I also added Glossy Accents to his top hat to make it shiny. I then stamped Sammy the Seal (also from High Hopes) onto a separate sheet of GP cardstock, colored him in with copics, and cut him out. I added Stickles to his collar. I inked around the image panel with SU's Brilliant Blue ink.

Next, I created my card base, which measures 5x7, out of SU's Brilliant Blue. I layered Real Red on top of that followed by design paper from DCWV's summer stack. I then layered my image panel onto Brilliant Blue followed by Real Red and then adhered that to the card base using dimensionals. I used SU's corner punch for the red and blue accents in the corners of the image panel. I also adhered the seal to the image with dimensionals.

Next, I cut out my squares and adhered them to the card base using dimensionals. I stamped the popcorn bag (also from High Hopes) onto GP cardstock three times, colored them with copics, and cut them out. I adhered them to the squares using dimensionals.

Finally, for a finishing touch, I added Primas and a red rhinestone to the card.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'll be back tomorrow with another project :)

Hugs, Christine :)

Brrr



Happy Thursday everyone :) The weekend is almost here! :) Hope you all are having a wonderful week.

My card today is my submission to this week's Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast (SC202). I love this Tilda image from Magnolia stamps with Tilda all bundled up. I first stamped the winter tree, also from Magnolia stamps, onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored the tree with copics. I then cut the tree scene out using my rectangle nestabilities. I added lots of stickles to make the snow sparkle. I then stamped Tilda onto GP cardstock, colored her with copics, and cut her out. I added Stickles to her wings.

Next, I created my card base (which measures 4 1/4 by 5 1/2) out of SU's Ballet Blue. I layered Bravo Burgandy on top of that followed by my design paper from Me and My Big Ideas (I found an 8x8 paper pack at Michael's, the paper is really nice). I then used my rectangle nesties to cut the layers for the tree image and then adhered the tree image to the card base using dimensionals. I cut out my squares and adhered them to the card base as well with dimensionals. I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch for the snowflakes and then placed pearls in the centers. Finally, I adhered Tilda to the scene with dimensionals.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a great day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project :)

Good morning everyone :) I have a really quick post for you today, I have a super busy day ahead of me. My card today is a pretty simple one, but I wanted this cute image to stand out and take center stage :) I stamped the image, which is a new image from Sugar Nellie, available at Funky Kits, with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with my copics. I then used my circle nestabilities to cut it out, along with the scalloped circles. All of my cardstock is from SU (Chocoloate Chip and Ruby Red). The design paper is from DCWV's Cat stack. I added a Chocolate Chip ribbon (from SU), Primas, and brown rhinestones for finishing touches. The sentiment is from Studio G.

What do you think? Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful day and I'll be back with more tomorrow :)

Once Upon a Time



Happy Monday everyone! Whew, this card was certainly a labor of love! :) It took me forever to make this one, but I'm pleased with how it turned out. I just can't get enough of these images from High Hopes. I made this card for this week's High Hopes Challenge. Our challenge this week was to use sparkles on our card.

I first stamped the stone wall onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with copics. I then masked it and stamped the castle right above it, and then stamped the castle two additional times onto separate paper and colored it in with copics. I layered the castle three times with dimensionals so that it really pops. I then colored the sky and grass with my copics to finish the scene.

Next, I stamped the princess and unicorn, colored them with copics, and cut them out. I added stickles to the unicorn's horn and to the princess's dress, shoes, and crown. Next, I created my card base (which measures 5x7) out of SU's Rose Red. I layered Always Artichoke on top of that followed by my design paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I used SU's ticket corner punch on the corners and placed pearls (from Michael's) in each corner. Next, I mounted the scene onto Rose Red followed by Always Artichoke and then mounted the scene onto the card base with dimensioanals. Next, I layerd the princess and the unicorn onto the scene with dimensionals. There are so many dimensionals on this card! :)

For some finishing touches, I used a cuttlebug die cut for the two floral corners of the image (I cut them out of SU's So Saffron cardstock). I also added Primas.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope your week is off to a great start. More tomorrow :)

Bewareth Ye of Dragons . . .




Happy Sunday everyone :) I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. I am so excited to share my projects with you today. I just love this dragon stamp and the sentiment from High Hopes Rubber Stamps, so cute! :) To make the card, I stamped the dragon onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with copics. I used my nestabilities to cut it out as well as the scalloped circles. All cardstock is from SU (Perfect Plum and Always Artichoke). The design paper is from DCWV's Once Upon a Time Stack. It's a pretty simple layout, but I wanted the dragon and the cute sentiment to take center stage :)

A while back, I found a great tutorial here for making a bag in a box. This was so fun to make and super easy. I used the same designer paper from DCWV that I used on my card. I used Fiskar's Threading Water Punch, SU's Perfect Plum cardstock, SU's round tag punch, a small hole punch, and ribbon from Making Memories to create the boxy bag. This card and matching bag are for my father-in-law for his birthday. We stuck a gift card down in the box bag. I really hope he likes it :)

Well, that's it for me today, but I've been super busy in the craft room today and should have some more cute projects to share with you this week.

I'd love to hear what you think of today's projects. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow. :)

Season's Greetings



Happy Saturday everyone :) Hope you are all having a great weekend. My card today is my submission to this week's Magnolia vs. Stampavie blog Challenge . This week's challenge was a sketch challenge.

I first stamped this new Christmas image from Sara Kay (for Stampavie) onto Georgia Pacific cardstock using Memento black ink. I colored the image with my copics and added some glitter using Diamond Stickles and my Sakura glitter pen. All of my cardstock is SU (Bravo Burgandy and Always Artichoke). My design paper is from Basic Grey's Wassail collection. I used my nestabilities to cut out the rectangles and the tag. The greeting is a Studio G clear stamp from Michael's. The ribbon is also from M's. For a finishing touch, I added primas and pearls. I also used Martha Stewart's Branch punch.

I hope you like it. I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine :)

Magic Happens



Happy Friday everyone!!! :) I'm so glad the weekend is almost here. It's been another crazy week and I'm looking forward to a little down time this weekend. Hubby and I don't have any big plans, but sometimes those are the best weekends, just resting and hanging out :)

Well, onto my card for today. I had so much fun creating this card. All stamps are from High Hopes (from their newest release). I used this week's sketch challenge over on Splitcoast (SC201) for my layout.

Fist, I stamped the castle three times onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with copics. I cut out two of the three castles I stamped. I layered the entire castle onto the castle I did not cut out with dimensionals. I then layered just the front part of the third castle with dimensionals. It's hard to see from the picture, but the castle really pops.

Next, I stamped the princess, mushroom, and knight onto Georgia Pacific cardstock, colored them in with copics, and cut them out. I added lots of stickles to the princess. Next, I put my card together using the sketch on Splitcoast. All cardstock is from SU (Bravo Burgandy and Night of Navy). The Once Upon a Time design paper is from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. The blue design paper is from DCWV's Nana's Nursery stack (baby boy). I stamped my sentiment on the tag which I made using my new nestability tag and I ran navy blue ribbon from M's dollar bin through the tag. Finally, I adhered the princess, mushroom, and knight onto the card using dimensionals. I made this card for my hubby as he truly is my knight in shining armor. I hope he likes it :)

I'd love to hear what you think of my card. Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll see you back here tomorrow. :)

Hugs,

Christine :)

A Magnolia Christmas



Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm sorry for the late post today, it's just been one of those crazy busy days. For my card today, I inked up the Christmas scene from The Stampin Place (they have great scenes that go wonderfully with Magnolias) with Memento black ink, stamped it onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it with copics. I added liquid applique to the white around the stockings. I also added lots of stickles and glossy accents to the clock face and the milk glass. Next, I stamped Tilda with Memento ink onto GP cardstock, colored her with copics, and cut her out. I added stickles to her wings. I next created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Handsome Hunter. I layered SU's Bravo Burgandy on top of that followed by my design paper from Basic Grey's Wassail collection (it's so beautiful, I love this paper! :) ). I adhered my scene directly onto the card base and adhered Tilda with dimensionals. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and a Martha Stewart pearl.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you are all having a wonderful week. More tomorrow! :)

Happy Birthday to Ye



Happy Monday everyone! :) Hope your week is off to a great start. My card today uses another stamp High Hopes Rubber Stamps (have I told ya lately how in love with this stamp company I am? :):):)). I stamped the pirate onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored him in with copics. I then used my rectangle nestabilities to cut him out. Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Night of Navy. I layered SU's Bravo Burgandy on top of that followed by my design paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I used my nesties to cut out the scalloped rectangles and mounted the image with dimensionals onto the card base. I used my new tag nesties to cut out the tag and I then stamped my sentiment (also from High Hopes) onto the tag. I adhered it to the card base and then placed blue rhinestones on each side. Finally, I cut out the pirate ship using a cuttlebug die and adhered it to the card base using dimensionals.

What do you think? Thank you so much for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your day and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

Lots of Hugs,

Christine

Believe in Fairy Tales



Happy Sunday everyone! :) My card today features more stamps from High Hopes Rubber stamps. These are from their most recent release. I'm just in love with this stamp company. Their stamps are so cute and are a dream to color in.

I stamped the Reflecting Pool with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with copics. I stamped the princess and frogs as well onto GP cardstock, colored them with copics, and cut them out. I added lots of stickles to the princess. Next, I created my card base (which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2) out of SU's Night of Navy and layered Elegant Eggplant over that. I then mounted my designer paper, from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack, on top along with a navy blue ribbon from M's dollar bin. I mounted my image onto Night of Navy followed by Elegant Eggplant and mounted it onto the card base with dimensionals. I then mounted the princess to the image wiht dimensionals. I mounted the frogs with dimensionals as well.

The sentiment is from Verve, I thought it went perfectly with this image. I used my nesties to cut out the scalloped circles and then stamped the sentiment. For a final touch, I added Primas and a purple rhinestone to the card.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend. More tomorrow :)

Dream Come True





Happy Saturday everyone! :) I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I am embarrassed to say how long this card took me to do! :) I've been working on it for quite some time today and when I went to take the picture, it was already dark outside so I hope you can see the card okay. I stamped my new princess and frog stamp from High Hopes Rubber Stamps onto Georgia Pacific cardstock with Memento black ink and colored the image in with copics. I added Gold Stickles to the crowns they are both wearing. I used my rectangle nestabilities to cut out the image and the scalloped rectangles. All cardstock is from SU (Rose Red and Always Artichoke). My card base measures 5 1/4 by 5 1/4. The design paper is from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack (I LOVE this paper, I finally made myself use it today, I've been staring at it for months afraid to cut it LOL :) ).

I used my circle nesties to cut out the circle and then I stamped the sentiment (from Verve) onto the circle using Versamagic Perfect Plumeria ink. The sentiment is hard to see in the picture because of the bad lighting, but it says "You're a Dream Come True." I added Primas and a pearl for a finishing touch. On the inside of the card, I inked up the sentiment (also from High Hopes) with Versamagic Perfect Plumeria ink and stamped it onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I used a Fiskars corner punch for the corners. The frog is also from High Hopes. I colored him in with copics as well.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back tomorrow with more! :)

Hugs, Christine :)
