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.

Copic Colors:
--Skin: E50, E51, E21--
--Beard: C0, C1, C3--
--Hat: C0, C1, C3, R81, R83, R85--

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:

Better Together

 Hi crafty friends!
I hope your day is going splendidly so far 💕

Today I popping in to share a card that I made for the new challenge that started over at the
They are always anything goes as long as you use a All Dressed Up image.

I wanted to create a little Valentine card so I picked the
Love Is image to color and create with this month.


Aren't they sweet?
I thought it would be fun to try and mimic a Polaroid style photo. I printed out my image and colored it in with my Copic markers. I also added some very light clouds in the background but they are so light that my camera isn't really picking them up :( Once I had my image colored, I cut it out to create a square. I took a dark gray marker to go along the perimeter so that I stood out a bit once it was added to the white "frame". I stamped my greeting, tied some twine and popped it up onto my card base with some foam tape. I finished my card by adding some little hearts that I punched out with some heart punches. 

Copic Markers Used:

--Girl--
*Skin: E50, E51, E21, R20
*Hair: E21, E25
*Outfit: R81, R83, R85, R20, C00, C000

--Boy--
*Skin: E51, E11, E33, R00
*Outfit: R37, R39, R89, E41, E43, C5, C3

Snow Much Fun with Cupcake Inspirations

 Hi crafty friends!!
Happy 2023!!
I honestly can't believe we are a week into a new year!
One great thing about the start of this new year is that I am happy to announce that I am a new design team member for Cupcake Inspirations Challenges!
I have loved the Cupcake Inspirations challenge blog for quite awhile now and am thrilled to be a Sweetie! 🧁 

Here is a look at the inspiration cupcake for the first challenge of 2023 (CIC #560)


and here is what I was inspired to make:


I had so much fun making this card!
I created an A2 card base from some white card stock and covered it with a piece of tiny polka dotted patterned paper. I stamped out my images from the Ready Set Snow stamp set from MFT using some Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with my Copic markers. Once I had them colored, I used my Scan N Cut to cut them out & set them aside. I used a scallop rectangle die to cut a piece of blue patterned paper & a piece of white cardstock. I cut some hills out of the white scallop rectangle that I cut out, stamped my greeting and layered my hills onto my blue background. I then added my images, tucking the houses and trees behind the hills and popping the snowboarders up with foam tape. I splattered some acrylic paint to create some snow and wrapped some sheer ribbon around the top before popping my image panel up with foam tape to my card front. I think this turned out so incredibly cute!!

Copic Colors Used:
--Polar Bear: C6, C1, C0, C00, R00, BG45, BG53, B00, B000--
--Penguin: N5, N3, N2, N0, R20, YR12, R85, R81, B000--
--Trees: YG17, YG03, E23--
--Houses: E49, E23, E21--
