This was a fun Valentine to make, combining supplies from a several different companies. The squirrel is surrounded by candy conversation hearts, although his acorn seems to be his favored treat! I colored the squirrel with Copic markers to start things off. Then I die-cut the hearts, coloring and stamping the conversation hearts. I die cut the base shapes and arranged all of the pieces to make this Valentine for my son. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is a fun card I made with a Valentine set I’ve had in my stash for a while, but I’d never used this particular stamp before! I colored the image with Copics and layered it with some patterned papers I also pulled out. I heat-embossed the sentiment in white on black cardstock and layered it all up. Thanks for visiting today.

You rule!

  • Dies – Lawn Fawn “Elphie Selfie” set
  • Patterned papers – My Mind’s Eye “Happy Day”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill Bling

I created this card for a challenge a small group of cardmaking friends had recently to “put a bird on it.”  You know, when in doubt, put a bird on it. So it was fun to put this together and color the animals and their accessories with Copic markers and stack them. I’m trying to use up some of my patterned paper in my stash (not so successfully because there is a lot of it, but its all so pretty!). I liked this simple card sketch from Sketch Saturday challenge blog, and it was a perfect design for this card. Thanks for stopping by.

Missing You from the Tent

  • Stamps –
    • The Cat’s Pajamas “Under the Stars,” “Hare Today,” and “Happy Camper”
  • Copic markers
  • Cardstock – Bazzill and Paper Accents

I made a scene using stamps from several different sets from The Cat’s Pajamas, in response to their latest challenge to create a scene. I made a single layer card and colored the entire thing with Copic markers. Obviously, that’s a challenge for me! I enjoy combining stamps from a variety of sets–that makes it lots of fun. You can tell I live in Oregon. It looks like they are staying inside the tent because there is a rainstorm! Thanks for stopping by.

Sleepy Owl’s Birthday

 

  • Stamps –
    • Impression Obsession “Sleepy Owl”
    • The Cat’s Pajamas “Simply Said”
  • Patterned papers –
    • BoBunny “Enchanted Garden Romance” and “Dot to Dot – Violet Dot”
    • Bazzill – “Antique Script”
  • Copic Markers
  • Embossing Powder – Ranger Ink

I’ve had this owl stamp and the patterned paper on the card base for years, so it was fun to create this card for an owl enthusiast with it. I colored the image with Copic markers, fussy-cut it, and layered it onto a couple of layers of patterned paper. I heat embossed the sentiment onto the black paper so it would stand out. A very simple card. Thanks for stopping by.

Have a Cool Yule!

  • Stamps – The Cat’s Pajamas “Penguin Christmas” and “Polar Holiday” (sentiment)
  • Dies – Spellbinders Nestabilities “Labels Fifteen”
  • Patterned papers – Basic Grey “Jovial” collection and American Crafts “North Pole” collection
  • Embossing Powder – Ranger Ink Wendy Vecchi “Red Geranium”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Copic markers
  • Sakura Glaze pens

Some of my cardmaking friends alerted me to a request that had been made by a 9-year old boy from Maine with cancer who wants to celebrate Christmas early this year. What he really wants are Christmas cards from all over the United States. The detail that really caught my attention is that he loves penguins! I was anxious to grant him his wish and mail him a handmade card from the other side of the country. Hopefully all of the holiday mail he is receiving is bringing him many smiles.

I went back into my stash to create this card! I’ve had these stamp sets for years! The patterned papers are not new either. I stamped the penguins and colored the image with Copic markers. I added some sparkle and shine with a couple different Glaze pens, but that effect is hard to detect in my photo unfortunately. The sentiment is heat-embossed with the bright red powder and adds some more shine.

Thanks for stopping by.
