Buttons and Broomsticks

Happy Halloween!
One last Halloween card... and then I'll be packing the witches and ghosties (but not the cats) up til next year. Sharon's challenge today was Stamp Simply #59 - Button up for Winter! -- to make a fall card and use buttons. I used buttons! In keeping with Sharon's stamp simply rules I kept the card pretty simple... when I got to the buttons I actually had the thought that I would thread them all... but realized quickly.... um.... not going to thread all of these. So I used crystals and pearls and sticky dots and covered up the button holes. The image is stamped on Curious Cryogen which shimmers and glimmers... quickly becoming a new fav for stamping, and colored with Copics. I highlighted with some Spica pens here and there. I love the little kitty with his squished up facial expression hanging on for the ride!

The cat's out of the bag...

The cat stamp is from Penny Black and the sentiment is from Repeat Impressions... somehow I found them and put them together for this little card. I had some brown bag paper (Thanks, Robin!) that I stamped and pieced the bag from... perfect! I popped the bag with some foam tape so it appears shadowed. I also used the brown bag paper on the background and ran it through the Cuttlebug to add some texture... but you can't really see the CB embossing in the picture. I added a few doodles around the edges with a tan and black micro pens. Finished it off with some black twill ribbon through some slot punch holes and a few of the infamous black sticky dots, will I ever run out of these? It seems as if they multiply, wish some of my other embellishments did the same!

Happy Turkey Day

It's TCP Tuesday and today's challenge was a sketch challenge over at Leigh O'Brien's blog Sunflower Studio. So I pulled out Sprinkles the Turkey to make a card with. The DP is Cosmo Cricket -- one side is the striped wood grain "Wanted" and the other side is the rusty red color "Doc Holiday". I used Copics and Spicas to color Sprinkles. The little star bursts I stamped everywhere in Caramel or Black. It ended up kind of busy, but I think it's OK. I used my Screw Punch to make the holes in the edge of the scallop frame and also to thread my black twine through. I used a tan fine tip pen to shadow the sentiment. I am also submitting this card as my second entry to the Cut Card Stock Contest "The Color of Fall".

Share a Hug

This is a quickie for sure.... and was inspired from the two color fade of the background paper. The red is like a Salmon Red and sure enough when I was looking for the Copic to match.... there it was "Salmon Red", just the one I needed. The snowman I masked then airbrushed the background. It is stamped on Curious Cryogen White and has that super shimmering tone to the paper. I put a layer of Glitter Glue- with very tiny glitter over the snowman. On the sentiment I just mimicked the little snowdrops from the snowman stamp around the edge of the ovaland outlined a few words to add some red. I dabbed a bit of Glitter on all the snow-dots too. I usually squeeze out my glitter glue on a scrap, then use a toothpick to apply. The little snowflakes are sparkly too and they were cheapy buttons I bought at Mike's and then just cut the button part off (What's the word for the button thingy on the back? Is it a shank?). Well, that really about sums up the entire card... EASY.

Witchy Wash-Line

How cute is are these little Witchy Clothes on the wash line? I know I've already shown off this stamp but had to share it again. I used my Copics and Airbrushed the background with a little grey. Still loving my Airbrush System, so glad I took the plunge. I'm still learning but think I'm getting better results from when I first started. I colored the clothes with Copics and then used my Spicas to sparkle them up. The little border I just drew little stars on and colored in the white. The sentiment is embossed on vellum and the window hole goes all the way thru the card base... so the light comes through the vellum window. It's so easy to cut out and line up windows with Nesties. I used my deckle edge scissors to edge everything. The two-tone ribbon was a perfect match for my DP. I love it when things just come together and work! The light green card stock is actually the backside of the DP, "Them Bones" by Cosmo Cricket --- see the little skeletons in the stripes. I don't think I even noticed them when I bought this paper! I just liked the colors!! I finished the card off with a few crystals. Finished card is an A2.

Kitty Country Style

Here's the behind the scenes on this country cat card--- My friend treated me to a Saturday night out to go see Josh Turner, a country singer for those of you that are saying--- whooo? Well just looking at Mr. Josh Turner was worth the price of admission as he is a hottie, never mind that he really does have an amazing voice to boot. So... to move along--- my friend shows all up all decked out in a RED western style shirt with rhinestones and a cool RED hat.... and she is as cat crazy as me. So how perfect is this little thank you card!?! The little black edgings are black strip stickers. And in the two corners I used a corner punch from EK Sucess and plopped some crystals in the open circle areas. I'm gonna have to hide my corner rounder as I just can't stop rounding the two corners on my images. I colored Country Cat Sprinkle with Copics and of course she sparkles of Spica... but you knew that already! I did only have the one ribbon strip and then felt the need to add the second.... cause it just needed MORE! The ribbon is puffed up in spots by just adding some glue dabs in places to secure it to the card. I like it. Done.

Fall Sunflowers

OK- This is my entry for "The Color of Fall" contest by . So wish me luck. The image is stamped on Curious Cryogen White-- which I've talked about before and is the source of said card stock. This paper has a beautiful shimmer to it which is seen even through the Copics! I love it. My blogger friend Sandy Hulsart introduced me to it, she uses it exclusively with Copic markers for amazing stamped scenes she creates.
The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and I airbrushed a little tan color around to take the whiteness away. Colored in with Copics. Of course I added Spicas to the sunflowers. I used a yellow marker to highlight the text as it looked to plain after I was done coloring the image. I used my Abstract Nesties to cut the frames out... Highlighting a little gold touch in two of the corners. I love these little gold half pearls I stuck on the corners.... I'm sure I'll be sticking them on everything to come for a while.

Golf Martini

This card came together nice and quickly and I like how it turned out.... other than the color scheme totally looks like Christmas. I colored with Copics, and coated the glass in Crystal Lacquer. For the little frame I drew the border using my Nestie frame before I popped my image out of it, then used a Micro pen to draw little circles. I colored in between the dots with a Red Copic and just put some little dots in the circles trying to mimic the golf ball dimples. I used a corner rounder for two corners -- I love doing this shape. I used to be addicted to my Ticket corner punch.... now it seems I can't stop doing the two rounded corners. The little silver and white dots are sticky on one side ... not sure who makes them as I threw away the packaging, but they were a good $1 find at JoAnn's.

Mad for Plaid - Witchy Wash Line

Are you running to get your sunglasses or are you calling the Glitter Police on me? I don't think I have ever used this much glitter on one card, ever. I was working on this card last night in the midnight hour--- so we'll go with that excuse. This is for the Ways to Use it Challenge, WT188, which was to use plaid on your card. OK here's how it came together... I airbrushed the background, then colored with Copics. I added glitter glue on the hat, dress and cape, then added some teensy crystals for even more bling - Fuji Crystals from TCP. The sentiment I embossed with a Brass Pearl EP on green paper, then I used a marker and colored it black, wiping away the marker from the embossed letters using a Kleenex. Then I coated that with glitter glue and a layer of crystal lacquer too. The stars and edge of the stamped panel I edged with the chisel end of my black Copic, then repeated --glitter glue and then crystal lacquer. I like the Crystal Lacquer over the glitter because it gives it a glassy look and also gives depth to the glitter and sparkles. Click on the close up to see all the glitter detail - and check out those itty bitty crystals. Somehow I had the perfect glitzy purple ribbon to add, purple is my least fav color and I have no idea why I would have bought this. I threw on some dew drops at the end, because well it just needed MORE! lol.

Potions and Spells

I'm gonna be sad when Halloween comes and goes, because I have had soooo much fun making Halloween cards. There were so many awesome images that came out this year, and they are just fun cards to make. I colored my image with Copics and used my Spica pens liberally over everything. On the crystal ball I used glitter glue -but it has very fine glitter, not the chunky stuff, same for the little dust coming out of the pouch. Then I used crystal lacquer over the glitter glue and it really looked like a crystal ball raised off the paper. The border I created by drawing the black lines and coloring with my Copics. I tried to mimic the color blocks on the pattern paper. The ribbon is two tone and I thought matched up pretty well with the colors on my card. I outlined the sentiment with an orange pen and added some little green crystals on either side. And my favorite touch.... the drippy punch. I thought you might could use this punch for icing on a cake slice or cupcake too. Click on the close up to see more detail. Finished card size is 5x5.

Fright Row

I love this Drippy Paint Punch -- it is Martha Stewart and it punches like a dream. I had to have ASAP when it came out--- I'm just now getting to using it. But I had to have it the next day after I saw it! My father always said I suffered from IGS - Instant Gratification Syndrome. No cure known. This is just a quickie card using little stamps cut out and arranging them. The center panel and the little elements are all popped up. And of course... even the tombstones sparkle of Spica, as well as the ghosties and pumpkin. Finished card is an A2.

Snow Birds

I think these little birdies are cute. I airbrushed the sky background and colored the rest of the image using Copics. The little hats are are Spica Sparkly. To create the snow dots I held my Copic Blender on the paper and let it bleed out removing the color easily since it was airbrushed- it almost seemed to work like bleach. The sentiment I inked in Kiwi Kiss, then added a little Pacific Point Blue to get the two toned ink. I used clear Spica over the letters and they shimmer IRL. I used Nesties to create the window and added the little white sticky dots on the inner frame. I like the color combo on this card as it is not traditional and does not look like my "usual".

Trick, Treat or Drink!

I love this little Hallo-tini. Isn't it cute!! The DP is Basic Grey from the Ambrosia Collection. I just cut strips to make the background. The orange and black strips are Rainbow Tape (pre-colored tape on small rolls in different widths). The little bats are puffy little satin ribbon... they come attached but I cut them apart so that I could move them closer together. The three little ribbon tags I attached with black brads using the black circles in the DP for placement. And trust me IRL this orange is BRIGHT. The martini glass and little bat I used Crystal Lacquer to give it a glassy look. I outlined the words with a small fine tip orange pen just to add a bit of orange and help them stand out.

Pumpkins and Black Cats

I wanted to use another color instead of the usual Halloween colors... so I pulled this strange yellow card stock and started with that. I stamped and masked my image and used my Copics and airbrushed the background using yellows, oranges and greys. I colored the image using Copics and of course used Spicas to glitz up eveything. The moon especially sparkles - matching the sparkly white dots on this funky ribbon. I added three orange crystals on the bottom just to bring a touch of orange in to the background. I used a Sharpie around the borders to make the dots -- and then wished I had not. But it was done.

another Coffee card

Sorry for my absence the past few days... but here I am, back again. I needed a break from the computer after work this week. This was not the card I planned on sharing today. The card I planned on sharing has a big ink blob in the center of it. It will probably show up this week with a big bow in the center of the card... and you never would have known. I was so ticked... My Copic marker just spit up a blob of ink as I was FINISHING my coloring. I could not go on after that. So here's coffee card #2. I do like this card and I finally made friends with this bumpy fuzzy weirdo ribbon and used it in a way I liked. It is glued so that it is puffed up a bit- not flat against the paper. If you cut this ribbon in the middle of a fuzzy bump - well all the fuzzy come flying off in a zillion little bits. This card is just layers, some DP and Cuttlebug action, really it was just putting it together, moving pieces around until I liked the layout. I stamped in Memento on River Rock card stock - Copics not near as blend-able on regular card stock. I put these teensy weensy crystals (Fuji crystals from The Cat's Pajamas) on the cup and then put a layer of crystal lacquer over the cup. The crystals look crooked, it's the picture.
Oh, for those of you that know me I have decided to give on giving up caffeine and I am enjoying a Dr. Pepper right now. There is a whole 12 pack in the fridge. Which just brings a smile right to my face.

Successful Woman

This is a quickie card. The stripes and dots I drew on the cups with a Micro Pen and then colored with my Copics. I used a glaze pen over the coffee cups to so they would have a little shine to them. I stamped on Neenah Classic Ivory with Memento Ink, my ink of choice still when using the Copics. I added the little frames around the edges using the chisel end of my Copic marker and the Micro Pen for dots. Threw some funky ribbon on and some little buttons at the bottom. Done. And for those of you that know me - I am failing terribly on my quest to kick caffeine.

So this card just kind of came together.... I had all these little ghosties cut out first from vellum and white card stock and was not sure what I was going to do with them. I had the idea originally of creating windows for them to peek out of--but then this card evolved... I used my Octagon shaped Nesties to create little layers stacked up for the ghosties to peek out from. IRL the ghosties really pop out at you! The "BOO" I white embossed on the DP then used a Micro pen to outline the letters to help it stand out from the paper. I used a Black Sharpie Marker to make the dots, as it dries quickly on vellum.

Holiday Moose

Blog Candy Update -- My husband the name picker, was out late and not here to draw the name. SO.... the drawing is postponed until Monday night at 8 PM. You can still leave a comment by clicking here to get to the post for your chance to win. Now on to Mr. Christmoose....

I like the way this card turned out. It was stamped again on the Curious Cryogen White Paper - which is the same as SU's Shimmer White. It has a glisten to it IRL, which shows through the markers and I'm loving using this paper with my Copics. Thanks to Sandy Hulsart for turning me on to it! The little moose I colored then used my blender pen to remove color on his feet and roughly went over his fur to kind of give him an animal fur look. The lights on his antlers are sparkled up with a red Spica and then I put crystal lacquer over them and on the holly. This is really just a few elements put together and some doodles around the sides of the white to help define the edges.

Cardinal and Crystals

Yesterday's OCC Challenge was to "Bring on the Bling" which could be paper, embellies, ribbon.... you get the picture. So here is my Christmas Cardinal with crystal holly berries. I used Curious Cryogen White to stamp on and airbrushed the blue background... the paper has a shimmer and twinkle IRL, that is perfect with the image on a Holiday card. I love this ribbon too... it was a dollar bin find at Michael's... and there is not an inch of it left, it matches perfect with Baja Breeze (even though it looks a bit mismatched in the pic, it goes!). Don't forget to sign up for blog candy (a few posts down) I'm drawing a name tonight!

Going Nuts.

What can I say. I got nothing. All I have made is trash! Colorful trash. I refuse to tell you how long I struggled to make this card. And now, as I am posting I realized the picture is crooked too, which makes it look like I could not even put the sentiment (totally appropriate sentiment) on straight. I wanted to use the owl with the fuzzy ribbon. I guess I did that, but don't really like this card. Also I wanted to use liquid applique on the Santa hat... but it has been MIA for about a week now. I'm sure it is staring me right in the face in my craft room--but I can't find it. I finally gave up looking so I didn't end up in the real Nut House. I used liquid pearls to add a little puff to the hat trim and the snowflakes. I printed out some sketches and challenges and am going back in, clearing off my desk and starting fresh. I am determined to crank some cards out this weekend! I have both days free to stamp. Wish me luck. Should I make something worthy, I'll come back and share.
