Who Let the Christmas Dogs Out?

I recently purchased this adorable set of dog images from Art Impressions stamps, and I just had to play with them immediately.  

Each image is colored with Copics, then fussy cut and placed on the backgrounds that I created with distress inks.  The addition of Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamel helps create the look of falling snow on several of the cards.

Popcorn fun

Here's an older card I colored up a couple of years ago.  These sweet images are from CC Designs, while the punch is from Martha Stewart, and the corner die is a Memory Box one.  The images were  colored with Copics.

Happy Holidays Penguin

Here's another card I colored up last year and just never had the time to post.  This is an adorable image from Whipper Snapper stamps called "Piccolo Penguin" that you can purchase here.  I colored the image with Copic markers and add A Spoonful of Snow from Stampendous for the glittery snow effect.  The sentiment die is from Impressions Obsessions and the candy cane border die is a Memory box item.

Wishing you a Penguin Birthday

I have an absolute love of penguins, and I adore all of Crissy Armstrong's images, so when the two are combined, you know I have to color it!  This adorable little penguin is from Whimsy Stamps and is called Penguin Birthday and can be purchased here.  I have colored the image with Copic markers which match the papers perfectly, and added some Viva Decor pearls as embellishments.

Traveling Divas

Another beautiful Stamping Bella image that I recently colored with Copic markers and then added detailed shading with Prismacolor pencils.  This image is "Uptown Girls Thelma and Louise" and can be purchased here.  I added a Find It Trading die that was embossed with Emerald Creek Allure Copper leaves powder.

Snow Flurries

Here's a card a did a year ago that I never got around to posting.  This is a cute image from Stamping Bella called "Merry Everything" and is available here.

The image was colored with Copic markers, and then I added Polar White flower soft to the pom poms, and some glitter to the globe ( which doesn't really show up on the photo).  The sentiment is included with the image.

Long time posting!

Time for me to get back to blogging my card creations.  I have been absent for a long time while I made some changes in my life.  Most importantly I decided to move to beautiful British Columbia over a year ago, and after selling my home in Alberta this past summer, I have finally settled into a temporary home in Beasley, while my new home is being built in Krestova valley.  

My craft stash is mostly packed away, but I did keep a few things so that I could still make cards to share, and it's now time to do that.  Some of the cards I will feature have been made in the last year, while others will be new creations.

This card features an adorable image from High Hopes stamps that is entitled "Canadian Christmas Greetings" and is available here.  I have colored the image with Copic markers and then added Prismacolor pencil to get more depth and highlights.  I choose to not put a sentiment on the card, as the ribbon has several greetings on it.

I am entering this card into the following challenge - 
One Crazy Stamper - November 2017
