Life Is Sweeter With You

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful day so far!
Today starts a new challenge over at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog.


The theme for #562 is Valentine's Day!

This challenge is being sponsored by 


For my card, I was given the image Life Is Sweeter to work with.
Here is a look at what I created:


This was so simple to make!
I started by creating a square shaped card and layering a piece of striped patterned paper on top. I printed out my Life Is Sweeter image and colored it in with my Copic markers before fussy cutting it out. I popped it up onto my card front with some foam tape and tucked the greeting (computer generated) slightly underneath. I die cut two frames, a pink one and a white scallop one, and added them to my card. I completed my card with a little die cut bow and some sequins. 

Copic Colors Used:
--Cupcake #1: E31, E34, Y21, Y00, Y000, R81, R83, RV52--
--Cupcake #2: E40, E41, E31, E34, RV66, RV63, B52, RV52--

Love You!

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Friday and have lots of fun crafty plans for this upcoming weekend :) 
I wanted to pop in and share my latest Valentine card that I made with you guys. 


I started by die cutting a scallop rectangle from some patterned paper and adding a sheer white ribbon bow. I popped it up onto a white card base with some foam tape and started creating my heart. I used a foil plate from Trinity stamps and foiled my heart with some bright pink foil. Once it was foiled, I popped it onto my card front with more foam tape. I really liked it but thought it was missing something so I used a little bitty bear to up the cuteness factor a bit lol! I colored him with some Copic markers and stamped YOU inside his little heart before adding him the the card with more foam tape. So cute!!
This picture does not do this card justice at all. It is so shimmery with the bright pink foil.


I wanted to try and capture some of the shimmer.


I would also like to play along with the following challenges:

You Gnome I Love You

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a wonderful day so far!
I'm so happy to announce that I have been asked to be a part of the 
Her images are so incredibly cute and I'm thrilled to get to work with them on a regular basis!!

Here is a look at what I created using the Heart Gnome digital stamp.



Cute right?
I created my card by first making an A2 cardbase from some white cardstock and layering a scallop rectangle on top. I printed out my Heart Gnome onto some white hammermill cardstock and colored him in with my Copic markers. Once I had him colored, I used my Scan N Cut to cut him out. I layered some white and pink patterned paper to my card front before adding him with foam tape. I added some thread to my sentiment and also popped that up with foam tape. I completed my card with some enamel hearts and some white Nuvo drops.

You Are My Heart

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful day so far!
Today starts a new challenge over at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog.


The theme for #561 is polka dots!
This challenge is being sponsored by Polka Doodles

I also had the pleasure of getting to work with one of their images.
The image I was given to use is called Too Cute Turtle Love and here is a look at the card that I created:

 

This was so super simple to make. I printed out that adorable Too Cute Turtle Love image onto some white Hammermill paper and colored her in with my Copic markers. Once I had her colored, I fussy cut her out and set her aside while I worked on my card. I used a heart border punch to add some hearts along the edge of a piece of white cardstock and added some kraft cardstock on top.  I cut a piece of pink & white polka dotted patterned paper, added that to my Kraft and then adhered it all to a Kraft A2 cardbase.  I added my sentiment and popped up my turtle with foam tape to my card front. I completed my card by adding some enamel hearts, a fun little bow for her head & rounding one of the bottom corners.

Copic Colors Used:
--Turtle: YG61, G43, R20, E40, E41, E42, E43, E44--

Friends Warm The Coldest of Days

Hi crafty friends and happy Wednesday!
Today I am popping in real quick to share a card that I made using some stamps that are a bit older but never out of the package. I'm trying to make it my goal to actually use more of what I have this year and to maybe buy less? hahaha! Hey, I said try!



To create my card, I started with a white A2 cardbase and added a white scallop frame with foam tape on top. I added some patterned paper and then started working on my scene. I created my little scene using some stamps from C.C. Designs and some dies from Lawn Fawn (hills) and MFT (tag). Once I had everything arranged like I wanted, I popped up my tag with more foam tape onto the front of my card. I added some sparkly twine, some snowflake sequins and some white Nuvo drops for my finishing touches. 
Aren't they so cute?? 

Copic Colors Used:
--Snowmen: B0000, B000, R00, YR12, E23, E21--
--Hat: R81, C00, C0, C1--

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
