I Chews You

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday :)  I hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Today is the start of a new challenge over at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog.  Our challenge this go around is "anything goes" with a twist to use alcohol markers.  Here is my card:


For my card today, I decided to ink up this adorable from Kraftin Kimmie.  It's called Kraftin Kimmie Bambi Bubble Gum and I think she's adorable :)  I inked her up and stamped her onto Copic Xpress It Card.  I of course colored her with my Copic Markers.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Pinks: R81, R83, R85, R89
Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Grays: W2, W4, W6
Boots: C5, C7, C9

My DP is from Carta Bella, it's the Carta Bella Cool Summer Paper Pad.  I added some Glossy Accents to the Bubble and to the gumball machine and then I added some Martha Stewart glitter to the bubble.  The cute sentiment comes with the image.  The swirl in the corner is from a Memory Box die (Tab will be selling these in the store soon).  For a finishing touch, I added a bow and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Here are some more pictures:



What do you think?  Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by and make sure to stop by the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog and join us in the challenge.  Big Hugs!

For my card, I used the adorable Tiddly Inks image called Fairy Tenderhearted.  Isn't she gorgeous, she was so much fun to color.  I stamped her onto Copic XPress Blending Card.  Of course, I colored her with my copic markers.  For all your copic marker needs, go HERE.  Here are the markers I used:

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday! :)  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  If you haven't heard, one of my absolute favorite stamp companies, Tiddly Inks, is having a design team call (see all the information about the DT call Here on Christy's Blog.  I LOVE Christy's images, I always have, so I knew when I saw this design team call, I had to give it a go.  Wish me luck! :)  My fingers and toes are crossed. :)  Here's my card:


Our challenge for the DT Call was to use our favorite Tiddly Inks image.  Well, I love them all and I don't have a favorite.  I decided after coloring a couple images (I'll have another TI card tomorrow to share so make sure to pop back :)) to use this adorable image called Whatever Blooms.  She's a newer image and I LOVE her!  I especially loved coloring her hair, she was SO much fun to color :)  Here's a list of the copic markers I used:

Let Down Your Hair

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week.  I have a fun card to share with you today so I'll get right to it.


I just love this image from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  Unfortunately I believe she is retired, I'm so happy I scooped her up.  I made my Rapunzel brunette because I'm brunette.  I hope you don't mind :)  I stamped her onto Copic XPress paper and colored her with copics.  Here are the copics I used:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Dress and hair bow: V000, V01, V04, V06, V09
Crown: Y35, Y39, E18
Shadow around image: W2, W4, Blender

The DP is from an old Once Upon a Time mat stack from DCWV (I hoarded these when they came out :) ).  I distressed the papers with my scissors and lightly inked with SU Chocolate Chip ink.  The flourishes are from a Memory Box Die (it's called the Quinn Flourish) and I got it at Ellen Hutson).  I also added pearls, a bow, a lavender jewel (from Michael's) and a tag (also from Michael's, I found it in the dollar section, it's made by Studio G).  The sentiment came with the image.  Here are a few more pictures:



What do you think?  Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  See you back here soon with a new project.  Hugs!

I LOVE this image.  This is the Saturated Canary Charmings Rubber Stamp and oh she was a dream to color, so much fun.  I inked her up with Memento Tuexdo Black Ink and stamped her onto XPress It Blending Card.  I of course colored her with my Copic markers.  Here are the colors I used:

Flowers in hair: RV000, R81, R83, R85, R89, Y35, Y38, E18
 
I used MME Blush DP for my design paper.  I distressed it using my scissors and then used my Tim Holtz Blending Tool and SU Chocolate Chip ink to add some inking around my image and all my DPs.  I added some lace (which I also inked using my Tim Holtz Blending Tool ).  The embellishment in the middle of the bow is from Michael's.  The swirly embellishments were made using a Memory Box die.   The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.  Here are a few more views:

Have a Tail Wagging Day

Hi everyone and Happy Sunday! :)  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  We're having a nice one here.  I've made some yummy meals lately (which if you know me, you know I'm not much of a cook so this is surprising, but I'm getting much better :) ).  I even made strawberry shortcake for dessert the other night, yum! :)  Hubby usually works one weekend day at least so he'll probably be up in his office for most of today.  Isaac and I will do some hardcore playing (he's crawling all over the place now so it's so much fun to play with him :) ) and hopefully I'll get some time in the craft room this evening :) 

The new challenge is up over at Color Me Creative.  Our challenge this week is anything goes with an optional twist to use an animal in your art work.  Our fabulous sponsor this week is the wonderful Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  You must go check out these adorable images, they are so cute!


For my card today, I used the adorable image Sasha and Pup.  I had SO much fun coloring this image up.  I of course colored the image with copics.  Here's a list of all the copics I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Dress - Pinks: RV000, R81, R83, R85

Dog: E42, E43, E44, E47, E23, E25, E29
Shadow around image: W2, W4, Blender

My cardstock is from SU.  My DP is from Echo Park.  I added a bow, some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the swirls were made from a Memory Box die (I get mine from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design - make sure to check her store out, she has the new fall and winter dies out and they are fabby!).  The sentiment is from an old Hanna Stamps clear set.  Here are a few more pictures:

Sunny Wishes

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday and Happy 4th of July to all my friends in the US :)  Have a fun and safe holiday today!  We have a fun day planned if little Isaac cooperates :)  I have a super fun, summery card to share with you today to hopefully get you in the summer spirit :)  We've had lots of rain here lately, but I think today is going to be beautiful, just perfect for the 4th of July festivities :) 


Don't you just love this fun summery image?!?! :)  She's called Sunnie and she's available at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  I just love her and she's so fun to color.  I stamped her onto my Copic Xpress cardstock and colored her with my copics.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Bathing Suit and glasses: RV000, R81, R83, R85
Sarong: G21, G24, G28
Coconut: E42, E43, E45, E47, E49
Flower: R81, R83, R85, R89
Shadow around image: W2, W4, Blender

It's kind of hard to tell from the pictures, but I added Glossy Accents to her eyes and glasses for some extra shine.  It's a really great effect, I just wish you could see it in the pictures :)  My cardstock is from SU and my DP is from Echo Park (LOVE this paper!).  The ribbon is from Michael's (I found it in the dollar spot, I think it was $2 and it came in a set with other types of ribbon).  The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment is from Kraftin Kimmie as well.  The pearls are from the dollar spot at AC Moore.  The element in the corner is from a Memory Box die (I get mine at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design).  I'm also entering this card in the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge and DT Call.

Here are a few more pictures: 



What do you think?  Well, that's it from me today.  Thank you so much as always for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day and a wonderful 4th of July for those that celebrate.  See you back here soon!  Big hugs!
