Hi ya everyone!  It's been a long time since I've been on my blog and I hope to get back into crafting soon!  We've been a bit busy moving across the US and we are expecting another addition to our family.  However, when Stephanie asked me to be part of the celebration at Simon Says Stamp, I couldn't resist.  I also got to use one of my FAVORITE artist's stamps, Christy Croll from Tiddly Inks!

Smile

Hi ya everyone!  Today, I have something a little different to share.  I recently joined a group of friends that create ATC cards and swap to each other!  I have had so much fun creating little ATC's and seeing what others create too!  This was a one on one swap I did with a friend who is a dog lover!  So what better image to use than Tiddly Inks Dog Days.  I colored him in Copics and used Echo Parks Everyday Eclectic paper.

 Hi ya everyone! I wanted to share a Valentine's Day card I created using one of the new pre-made scenes at Make it Crafty called Tulip Window Digi Stamp. I also used the adorably sweet digital image called Geeky Love.

Walking on Sunshine

Hi ya everyone!  Today, I get to share my first creation as a design team member at Make it Crafty.  The Make it Colourful Challenge is really two parts.  You can choose to do one or both.  The easy challenge is use blue and yellow.  The difficult challenge is to make sun rays or color water.  I chose to make sun rays and use blue and yellow for my creation.  The images from Make it Crafty are called Annie and Shady Spot Background Digi.
You can easily layer digital images at Make It Crafty using the png files you get when purchasing an image.  I typically use PowerPoint to merge and size my digis.  Make sure to join our challenges and check out the store blog for lots of tips, techniques and tutorials from the Design Team!

A Wild Birthday

Hi ya everyone!  Today, I'm sharing a Tiddly Inks card with you using Hello My Pet Clear stamp set.  I love these stamp sets because the girls are a bit larger than most stamps.  This makes it easier to color and for those that like a clean and simple creation it's easier to fill most of the card with image.  The sentiment is also from the set.  I colored this cutie in Copics and used Echo Parks Eclectic Everyday.
We actually have two challenges currently happening at Tiddly Inks.  A Clean and Simple is the challenge on the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog and on our NEW Facebook group challenge a Make it Colorful!  If you aren't part of our Facebook group just ask for an invite.  Make sure to join us for the fun.

Floating by to say hi!

Hi ya everyone!  I'm back with a new creation using an adorable Tiddly Inks image called Floating By Clear Stamp set.  I did something a little different and used some cold press water color paper and painted some water colors from Koi to create a watery scene.  I then colored up this adorable image in Copics and popped her off the back of my card.  The sentiments are included in this set.  I added a touch of stardust stickles.

The challenge at Tiddly Inks this week is Clean and Simple!  So hard for me!!  Check out the other team members and enter for your chance to win a digital gift certificate or be featured on Fabulous Inky Friday!

24 Days of Christmas Event - Day 12

Hi ya everyone!  I'm so excited to celebrate the 24 days of Christmas with the Whimsy team and YOU.  We are on day 12 and if you've missed the other days and you need to know the details, just check out THIS POST.  There is a GRAND PRIZE and spot prizes, so make sure to join the fun!

Today, I'm using the adorable Lissy's Little Light from Elisabeth Bell.  I love this image, so much in fact, I made two tags to share.  Both use the same image but really have different looks once on a tag.  First up is Merry & Bright.
I used a number of red and green Copics for her outfit.  I used my Silhouette to cut the tag this time and paired with Echo Park papers.  The sparkly Thicker letters don't stand out that well but added such a pretty touch I couldn't help it!
For the second, Peace on Earth, I wanted to subdue my colors a bit and went for more of a shabby chic look.  The design is very similar but you can see with one image how you can get two very different projects. 

I think you might have my letter figured out by now, but just in case:


We will also be running some fun SPOT PRIZES throughout
the entire event.  The prizes could be hidden here on the Whimsy blog
or on our design team member's blogs, so be sure to 
leave a comment my blog post HERE and on the Whimsy blog  to be in with a chance to win!
Be sure to check back here tomorrow for more Christmas Inspiration and to collect your next letter!

Deck The Halls

Hi ya everyone!  I decided to create a beautiful little scene using two Make It Crafty images, Bethany Winter Jacket Digi and Front Door Wreath Digi.  I changed my card size to a 5x7 to accommodate the images into a proportional scene.  Make It Crafty provides png images that allow you to layer them simply.  If you don't know how to combine images, check out my tutorials page and click on the Working with Digital Images at the bottom for computer tutorials.  I colored the scene in my Copics of course and added a layer of Stardust Stickles around the windows edges for a frosty appearance.

Snow Place Like Home

Hi ya everyone!  I decided to put together a little scene with a few images from Make It Crafty.  I've so loved merging my digital images to create fun cards with more to look at then one image.  Today, I used the adorable Floppy and Gift Way.  I colored everything in Copics and went over the snow with a bit of Stardust Stickles.  I also wrote North Pole on the sign with my Copic multiliner.  This is a 5x5 card and the paper is from Echo Park Winter Wonderland.  The sentiment is from My Craft Spot.

Happy Fall Ya'll

Hi ya everyone!  I've been taking some time to work on my coloring a bit.  I am loving coloring whole scenes.  I paired three images from Tiddly Inks for this creation; Wryn in the Fall, Wryn's Tree and Home Sweet Home.  I wanted a warm fall feel so I made a sunset behind the image.  I do wish I hadn't colored the house the color I chose.  It's a bit too matchy with Wryn's outfit.  I love having some time to work on my coloring instead of rushing through creations.  As I learn I hope to create more Copic coloring videos!  If you haven't tried coloring scenes, I really recommend it!  Delphine and Alyce are too scene creators that have really inspired me!
