BFFs Forever!

Hi everyone!
I hope you are having a fabulous day and getting some crafty time in!
I wanted to pop in real quick and share a card that I made for my husband.
We recently celebrated our wedding anniversary and this is the card that I made for him:

As soon as I saw this stamp, I knew I had to have it in my life to make my hubby a card. 
His preferred method of travel is a Harley Davidson so I thought he would get a kick out of this haha!

I always struggle with masculine cards so I kept it pretty simple and kept the focus on the image and sentiment. I stamped my image onto a piece of white hammermill cardstock and colored it with my Copic markers. Once I had it colored, I used a stitched rectangle die to cut it out. I adhered it to some blue houndstooth patterned paper and then added it to my white A2 card base. I added some doodles around the perimeter for a little visual interest. I stamped my sentiment and used a stitched die to cut it out. I popped it up onto my card with foam tape and added a little red enamel heart to complete my card. So simple but I adore how it turned out!

Copics Used:
--Trike: R24, R27, R39, C1, C4, C6, C8, Y26--
--Girl's Skin: E50, E51, E21, R20--

Be Bright!

Hi everyone and happy happy Monday!
I hope you had a fun weekend!

Today I am popping in to share a card that I made with a few challenges in mind.
The challenges that I am entering are:

--July Christmas Card Prep Challenge at, using the following sketch:

Here is the card that I made:

Following the above sketch, I built my card base using some red and white cardstock along with some patterned papers from Doodlebug. I stamped that adorable little Reindeer & Tree from Mama Elephant with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and did some simple Copic coloring. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and placed them onto the die cut circle. I added some doodle lines around the perimeter of some of the papers for a little visual interest. I completed my card with some glossy accents on his nose & lights and some enamel dots in the top corner of the pattered paper piece. 

I went and ahead and made 4 cards while everything was out. 
I'm really loving prepping this early for my Christmas card stash!

Bee Awesome!

Hi there and happy Thursday!
Almost the weekend!!
I hope you are doing well and able to stay cool. 
Seems like a lot of areas are getting some pretty hot temps. 

I wanted to pop in today and share a card that I made with a few challenges in mind. 
The challenges that I would like to enter are:

Here is a look at the card that I created:

I'm not quite sure what it is lately, but I seem to be drawn to all things bees.
However, I'm not a real big fan of the stinging ones, just the cute ones that I can color hahaha!

This stamp from Avery Elle is older but I thought he would be perfect for this card sketch.
I created my card by first building my card base. I started with some Kraft cardstock and layered some patterned paper from Echo Park on top. Next I stamped my images and gave them a simple coloring with my Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and added them to my circle focal point. I stamped my greeting, notched the end and tucked it behind my bear. I added a little enamel heart, some black Nuvo drops and some white enamel dots to complete my card.
 Super easy but oh so cute!

Copic Colors Used:
--Browns: E40, E41, E31, E33, E35, E49--

Ahoy There!

 Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your summer!
Summer is always so busy and it seems like I spend less time in my craft room. 
Anyone else like that?
Today I was determined to get into my room and create a card though and I'm happy to say that I did!! Yay!! lol!
I created my card using an adorable image from 

Isn't this little Sailor Bear the cutest?
I thought he was just perfect to create a summer themed Hello card.

To create my card, I started with a dark blue A2 cardbase and layered some patterned paper on top. I embossed some red cardstock with a polka dot embossing folder and added that to the bottom of my card base. I added a thin strip of white cardstock and wrapped some twine around, tying it off with a bow. I printed out that adorable teddy and colored him with my Copic markers. I used my Scan N Cut to cut him out and popped him up onto a die cut circle with foam tape. I printed out my sentiment and popped that up with more foam tape to complete my card. 

Copic Colors Used:
--Bear: E50, E31, E33, E59, R22, R20--
--Shirt/Hat: C00, C0, R27, R39, B37--
--Boat: B32, B34, B37, R39, C00--
