Silent Night

Another gorgeous Lili of the Valley image for my card today.  I have colored her with Copics and added some depth with Prismacolor pencils, then double matted the image before placing it on dp from Simple Stories Cozy Christmas collection.  A Lili of the Valley sentiment and a beautiful Memory Box die complete the card.

Under the Umbrella

Switching up today by not posting a Christmas themed card, instead I have this stunning card featuring the Stamping Bella image "Uptown Couple Emily and Ryan Under the Umbrella".  The image was colored with Copic sketch markers then matted and placed on a card from featuring paper from Prima.

Frosty Fun

Be prepared to see lots of penguins in my next few posts - this little cutie is another Lili of the Valley from last year's release that I just never had the chance to color, but here it is now!!

After coloring the image with Copics and putting Stickles on the snow drops, I cut the image out with a Spellbinder die and mounted in on paper from Carta Bella All Bundled Up collection.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, snowflake die is from Memory Box, and the ribbon is from my stash.

Snowman builders

  Anyone who knows me knows that I adore penguin images, so when Lili of the Valley recently came out with some new images featuring my favorite little birds I just had to order them.  This sweet image is entitled "Penguin Pals" and I have colored it with non traditional colors using my Copic markers.

The image was cut out with a Spellbinder die, then mounted on paper from Simple Stories Cozy Christmas collection.  Ribbon from my stash and Stickles covered snowflakes help finish off the card, while the sentiment is also from the Simple Stories collection.

Blue Christmas

Wow, it has been awhile since my last post - school is now finished and I finally have some time to get back to coloring and creating.  Truth be told though, the card today is one that I completed earlier this year just haven't posted it until now.  But I have finally returned to my craft room, so expect to see more creations from me in the future.

I love monochromatic color schemes and pair that with a gorgeous Sugar Nellie image, you get a wonderful Christmas card.  The image entitled "More Hands Make Light Work" has been colored with Copics, then cut out and matted with a Spellbinder die.  The dp is from Carta Bella, and the funky parenthesis are a Simon Says exclusive Memory Box die.  The sentiment and snowflake die around it are from Whimsy Stamps.

Congratulations You're a Star!!!

To brighten up this dreary, cool day I have a bright colorful card to show you.  This is an older Stampavie image that I colored with Copics and then added some sparkle with a Sakura starlight pen and clear Stickles.  

Wishing everyone a happy day!

Magical First Birthday

Today's card is another special order for a friend who's niece was turning one a couple of months ago, and I didn't get a chance to post it back then, so here it is!

This gorgeous image is from Sugar Nellie - I colored it up with my Copic markers, then mounted it on paper from my stash.  The green border is a Spellbinder die and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.  I fussy cut some of the flowers from the patterned paper and popped them up on the card front.
