North Pole Woods

Hello!

Hope all of you in the US had a wonderful holiday weekend, and everyone else- a fabulous regular weekend! LOL!

I'm sharing a card today over on the LDRS Creative blog that I made combining two of the newest clear stamp sets- North Pole & North Woods!

North Pole Woods

I stamped and masked the polar bear from the North Pole stamp set and then added the trees to the background. Colored in copics, I gave the trees a dusting of snow- it is the North Pole, right? I die cut the scene using a die from the Fancy Squares & Little Things die set, and finished of the image with a bit of sparkle using a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen. I found some coordinating pine tree patterned paper in my stash, along with the polka dots (I thought looked like snowballs!) using the Basic Stitched flag die also from Creative Basics, pulled everything together with a sprinkling of snowflake sequins and baker's twine and added the sentiment using a stamp from the *HSN exclusive* CandiBean Christmas stamp bundle... there's still some available AND they're on sale!!

Copics: 
polar bear: C00, C0, C1, C3
trees: E35, E37, YG03, YG17, YG67, YG97

Thanks for stopping by hope you have a fabulous day!!

Spreading Joy!

Hello! Happy Saturday!

I'm on the Passionate Paper Creations blog today sharing this adorable image from one of our sponsors, Conie Fong Art!  I am totally in love with all of her images and can't wait to get my hands on more!

For my card today, I colored up this sweet image, Holly Poinsettia...

Sending Joy

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen her a few days ago for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin.  I just love these coloring challenges since it builds up my collection of colored images & makes the card making process go much quicker!

I die cut the image and the aqua mat, using Fancy Rectangles & Layers by Creative Basics. Stamped the sentiment (The Greeting Farm) and adhered all my mats and layers on to my card base with some coordinating patterned paper, and finished it off with some sparkle using glitter washi tape and sequins!

Copics:
hair: 100, C3
skin: E000, E00, E21, R01
clothing: BG02, BG05, BG07, R17, R37, R89, R81, R83, R85, Y32, Y35, Y38;

Thermal Weather

Thermal Weather... but obviously not here, we're still pushing the *almost* 90 degree mark! (but still beautiful weather..I'll take it!)

I'm on the LDRS Creative blog today sharing a card I made using the new, Saturated Canary stamp- Thermal Weather!

Darlin'

I colored her with copics in some rich jewel tones and die cut it using the Fancy Squares and Little Things dies, including the purple mat. I used some coordinating patterned papers and washi tape in addition to a Basic Stitched flag- that is actually two flags adhered together behind the image to make it fit the length of my card. I finished my card by adding the sentiment from the Amazing Girls stamp set.

Copics:
skin: E000, E00, E21, R01;
eyes: G20, G21, G24;
hair: E23, E25, E27, E29;

"Deer" friend

Woohoo! Happy Friday!

Starting off this first weekend of November with Passionate Paper Creations & Friends Facebook group's last sponsored weekend of the year with Little Miss Muffet Stamps!

There are some ADORABLE new reindeer digis in the shop and they are the cutest- I want them all!

I colored up Reindeer Greetings first...

Deer Friend

After coloring with copics, I die cut the reindeer using a Fancy Rectangles and Layers die by Creative Basics, in addition to another of the same size in green card stock.  I love keeping my cards simple so I just layered them onto a piece of patterned paper and added some wood veneer and sequin embellishments.

Happy Halloween!!

I'm on the LDRS Creative blog today sharing my LAST Halloween card... this year! Ha!

It's funny because I didn't get into Halloween cards until recently, and now with all the images getting cuter and cuter every year- it's hard to resist!

I decided to play with one of the new Dollhouse images, Oh Deer and transform her into a Halloween-themed image! When looking for ideas for my own costume this year- I kept seeing a trend photos of deer face paint/make up ideas, and photos from all the new "selfie" photo apps that are out now and found my inspiration!

Oh Deer

I colored her with copics and added the bit of brown down the front of her forehead and nose to look like a deer as much as I could! I die cut the stamped image using the Fancy Squares & Little Things die, and also a larger mat from the same die set in purple card stock. Using some coordinating Halloween-themed patterned papers I matted the die cuts to my card base and added a few Basic Stitched Flag dies, the black glitter and spider print strips are washi tape, stamped my sentiment from the Friendly Greetings set, and finished it off with some large gems- what's Halloween without some sparkle, right?

Copics:
skin: E000, E00, E21, E31, E33, R20
hair: 100, C3
antlers: E31, E33
top/scarf: V04, V06, V09, YG03, YG17, YG67

Thanks for stopping by- have a fabulous and SAFE Halloween!
