For my Snowman Family card, I colored the image with copics, used white gel pen for the balls on the ends of their hats and also on the tree as ‘snow’. Sprinkled some “snow” Flower Soft on and did a little faux stitching around the image.

Tommy Turkey is looking all proud colored with copics and cut out completely. White gel pen was used on his collar and a Spica pen on the buckle of his hat. He is also attached with dimensions.

Happy Anniversary

amberfallinspiredcopy

Time for another challenge over at the  CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostesses for the month Liz and Lynn has another fun challenge for us.

This time round the challenge is to Create a card using the rich, wonderful colors of autumn.

I used an image from Paper Pretties for my card. Now you may say well that doesn’t look like an autumn card. Well let me explain. Today, 21 yrs. ago I was waking up for one of the most important days of my life…. my wedding. So this card of course represents that crisp fall day using fall colors. The clothes are paper pieced.

Of course the above looks nothing like my husband and I so I thought I would share a picture from that happy day oh so many years ago. (and really we were happy, this was just one of those serious shots)

    Happy Halloween

    pumpkinscary

    Challenge time over at the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Our challenge hostesses of the month, Liz Williams & Lynn McAuley continue to bring us fun challenges.

    Create a card using your favorite ghoul, ghost, monster, or witch to scare up some Halloween fun.

    I don’t do Halloween so I have no ghoul, ghost or monster images so I went with a Jack ‘o Lantern cupcake using Paper Pretties Holiday Sweets I instead. Colored the image with copics. Added yellow stickles to the stars. Pulled out some “Halloween” design paper that I have and made my card. The sentiment also comes from the Holiday Sweets I set.

    Time for a Paper Pretties challenge! This week's challenge is:
    CLEAN AND SIMPLE!

    also This month take 50%  your entire order using promo code: HAPPYHALLOWEEN over at Paper Pretties!

    Clean and Simple, huh? Sometimes I can do them and other times they don’t stay to clean and simple. But I have to say I am in love with my card and am thinking Christmas cards for this year! The only time consuming part is the complete cutout.

    I used Tis the Season Sophia and colored her with copics. Used some sparkly pens for the ribbons and cut her out completely. Ran some vellum through the cuttlebug with a Christmas folder. Attached it with brads and attached Sophia with dimensionals.

    The plane

    storybookajh

    There is still plenty of time to play in the CHF challenge over on the Cornish Heritage Farms Blog.  This week the challenge is hosted by Kelly.

    This time round our challenge is to Create a card based on a favorite storybook character.

    I used Toy Airplane Digital Stamp for my card. Colored it with copics and popped it up. Don’t ask me what favorite storybook character as I have no clue but there has to be some storybook out there that has a plane in it… right?? Shoot, it could be Jay Jay the Jet Plane… that is in storybook form too, right? Anyways here is my card.
