Black & White

I came across a card in Paper Creations, Fall 2010 magazine by Dorothy Ensz and fell for it instantly.  So I copied it, adding my own touches.  I used Glimmer Mist-graphite on all the paper but the white card.  It added a slight shimmer to it.

Thanks for looking!!


Oooooo, Sparkly

I have been busy, but I did find some minutes to compose some cards.  This one is for a wedding we are attending this weekend.  Lotsa pink and sparkles.

Hope you enjoy!

Blue Poppies

These poppies were fun to color - yes, copics again.  Love them.  They do something new every time I use them.  This means I'm hunkering to color alot of the time - yea, play time!!  The stems on these are done free hand, that's why they look crooked.  Can you tell I was low on birthday cards?


This is one of my recent favorites.   I love the colors and the simplicity of the layout.  I'm very happy with it.
Hope you enjoy it too!




Here's another that I did in Copic's class.  I really like this image - had to by the set - Oh Darn!!  I'm having a lot of fun coloring with my new markers.  They are amazing - I love coloring with them so much.  And I have found a store where I can get them for just about half what I've been paying.  Oh Goodie!!

Hope you enjoy.

The stamp is from a set by Penny Black.



I think my image is too dark for the color of cardstock I chose for the card base.  Butterfly is colored with Copics - love them!

Thanks for visiting.


Copics 101

I took a class on coloring with Copics.  I absolutely love coloring with Copics!!
I love this card....I especially like coloring flowers.  I've had to buy some new stamps - oh, darn!! Lol.  I smudged the sentiment, so I'll have to do that over.

Hope you enjoy!


Butterfly Thoughts

I picked out the same colored CS as  this butterfly has in it.  I didn't like it at all, so I narrowed down the colors to just these two.  Much better!!!

Hope you enjoy.


One Layer

This is my first attempt at a one layer card.  I wanted to keep it as simple as possible.   I absolutely love it.

I had to mask the branch because I stamped it first.  I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the shadow and the sentiment.  It looked sort of naked, so I added the button.

Thanks for visiting.


Valentine's Goodies

I realise that it's way past Valentines, but I forgot to post the goody boxes that DD2 and I made.  We started with white CS (brown for the boys) and stamped hearts and stuff on it. Then we cut them out, folded and taped together. 

We made the front part with red CS behind White CS that's stamped with a big red heart.  Then we cut out a big heart out of pink DP and put 3 strips of double sided tape and stuck 3 different colors of teeny tiny micro beads on them.  We then popped that out on top of the big red heart.  We put a little red heart on the lid, that has a pink bling on it.  My DD was thrilled.
