Amber Butterflies

Wow, where oh where did the month of January go?  Time seems to have quickly passed and now  it's time for me to post my last card for One Crazy Stamper this month.  


This gorgeous image is from Saturated Canary and is entitled "Amber" and is available here.  After coloring the image with Copics, I cut the image and the surrounding mats with Spellbinder dies, then mounted in on a card front featuring an older My Sentiments Exactly sentiment, ribbon, a Memory Box butterfly die and a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.  Both of the butterflies were coated with two colors of Viva D├ęcor Inka Gold ( Turquoise and  Jade ) before they were adhered to the card front.

Hockey Time

It was a beautiful warm (+10C) day here in Alberta, with more double digit temperatures expected into the weekend, so I'm hoping my fellow Albertans are out enjoying this unexpected surprise.
 
It's not very often that you see an image with a hockey player, so when this one came up on Mo's Digital Pencil I had to rush right over and grab it.  Love Mo Manning images and this one is definitely one of my favorites.  I loved it so much that I colored up three different versions!!!



 
Head on over to the Mos' Digital Pencil website and check out all the wonderful images that Mo has created including Lil' Hockey Guy!!!

To Have & To Hold

Who loves weddings and who loves Lili of the Valley images!!!  I do, and so when I can combine the two into one card it's all about the love.  Lili of the Valley recently released new images and one was another gorgeous image of one of my favorite couples, so.....

 
.....here's the final result!!  This is Bride and Groom that I have colored with Copics, then framed with a Spellbinders die and mounted on dp from my stash.  The lace, ribbon, flower and sentiment are all from my stash.

Berry Special

It's a beautiful sunny day here in Alberta, and we are finally experiencing a warm up which is long overdue.  Blue sky finally!! 
 
For today's One Crazy Stamper post I have colored up the adorable image Berry Nice from High Hopes Stamps with my Copic Sketch markers, then added white highlights to the mouse nose with a Sakura white pen, and covered the strawberry with Judikins Diamond Glaze for shine.


To finish the card front I added a hand drawn border and sentiment.

Udderly Adorable


Today's the day - the latest releases from High Hopes Stamps are available today at One Crazy Stamper, and my card features one of the newest images entitled Takin' a Break.

 
I stamped the image directly on kraft cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with Copics ( T5, T7, T10, E35, R20) and a white Prismacolor pencil.  The sentiment was hand printed as well as the grass, flowers and stitched border.
