It Moose be Christmas - SugarPea Designs

Hi ya everyone!
What am I going to do?!  I am so addicted to these cute stamps from SugarPea Designs.  I combined two sets this time to create a wintery scene.  The first set is called Easily A'Moosed and includes the little moose.  The second set is called Merry Christmoose and includes the trees, snowflakes and sentiment.  I colored the scene in my Copics as follows:

Moose:  E70, E71, E74, E77 and E50, E51, E53, E55
Trees:  E70, E71, E74, E77, E50, E51, E53 E55 and G94, G99, G29
Snow/Sky:  BG0000, BG000, BG01, C00, C1, C3 and 0

I also stamped the snowflakes and embossed them with white embossing powder and stamped the sentiment in versafine black ink.  The last touch was to add a bit of Wink of Stella glitter pen and a bit of white gel to the cheeks and eye of the moose.
If you love these sets as much as I do, head over to SugarPea Designs!

A Sweet Life - SugarPea Designs

Hi ya everyone!
Today I'm sharing a little card I made using the sweetest stamp set from SugarPea Designs called Pucker Up!  There are so many cute stamps that come with this clear polymer stamp set that you can go the lemonade route or the tea route.

I used stamped the little lemons with embossing ink and added white embossing powder on top.  After that I used my heat gun to set the embossing powder.  After cooling the embossing I used my Tim Holtz ink Mustard seed and worked it all over the lemons.  I colored the little pitcher with my Copics:
Lemonade:  Y11, Y15, Y19
Glass Pitcher:  B000, B01
Ice:  B21, B01
Heart:  R22, R24
Hands: C1, C3

I used a number of little beads and nail art pieces for the shaker part of this card.  

If you haven't checked out the adorable stamps at SugarPea Designs you must!!!  So much cuteness and they have dies and papers too.  One of my new favorite companies.

Last, I wanted to add this adorable card my daughter, Auden, made.  She loves messing around with markers and has used the ShinHan touch to color her witch and kitty.  The stamp is from Whimsy Stamps and called Boo to You.  

She'd love to hear your thoughts on her adorable card!

Let it Snow!

Is it a little early for snow??  I'm ready for the change in season but maybe winter is a bit of a stretch! I've been inspired by the number of winter/Christmas cards that are popping up in my feed.  I love the rubber stamp set Miss Anya Scarves from The Greeting Farm and decided to use this cutie for a no lines coloring go!  I believe it's a discontinued stamps set though.  Man, it is a difficult technique and I probably wouldn't recommend it for beginner Copic users.  However, it does teach you how to make sure your shading is appropriate, otherwise you get a large blob of color!!!

I stamped in my angel pink memento ink and colored her in the following Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E04, E11
Hair and Boots:  100, C7, C5, C3
Jacket and Scarve:  B93, B95, B97, B99 and B32, B34, B37, B39 and BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29

After coloring I fussy cut Anya and then designed the card around the theme of snowflakes.  I used Make It Crafty snowflake chipboard and embossed with platinum and silver embossing powder.  I used my stitched hillside dies from Lawn Fawn.  This card is a 5x5.

Hello - Whimsy Stamps and Wee Ruby

Hi ya everyone!
I'm sharing an adorable card I made using a Wee Rubber stamp, Ruby, from Whimsy Stamps!  I love purchasing from Whimsy Stamps.  Items arrive quickly and they are high quality.

I always start by stamping my image in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on X-Press It paper.  I colored Ruby in my Copics as follows:
Skin:  E000, E00, E04, E11
Pants:  BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78
Shirt/Vest:  R43, R46, E09 and YR61, YR65, YR68
Flowers:  R43, R46, E09, YR61, YR65, YR68, YR20, YR21, YR24, YR27, YG91, YG93, YG95
Hair:  E41, E42, E44, E47, E49
Background:  BG0000, BG000

After my image is colored, I mount the image on red card stock and trim the edges to a 1/4" width.  I cut a card base in white Neenah card stock to 5x10 and fold at the 5" mark on the 10" side forming a 5x5 card.  I cut another piece of red card stock at 4 1/2" and added an adorable piece of paper from Echo Park I Love Family 6x6 pad on top.  This sheet was cut to 4 1/4" and then mounted on the red card stock.  

I used the Whimsy Stamp dies called Double Scallop Border and the Corner die (both are retired).  I adhered the Double Scallop Border die to a piece of Echo Park I Love Family paper and placed this on top of my base papers and then mounted all of it to the card base.  I finished my card by adding the sentiment, heart stickers, sheer ribbon and opal paper pen.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and make sure to head over to the wonderful Whimsy Store to find your own images today.  They also have a beautiful blog where you can find inspiration from all!  Don't forget they also have a DT call happening now!!!

Tiddly Inks Color Challenge for August - Autumn Glow

Hi ya everyone!
Tiddly Inks has a fun challenge open currently using a beautiful color theme, Autumn Glow.  I love the colors and couldn't wait to try the palette on this amazing wedding image from Tiddly Inks called, Garden Wedding.

I colored the image in my Copics.  Mostly using beautiful oranges, pinks and reds.  I used the Simple Stories paper Vintage Bliss as well as vellum.  I layered the vellum over the background paper to soften the appearance of the card.  The ribbon and flowers were a small touch to enhance the image.
 Make sure to head over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog and join the fun challenge.  You have to use a Tiddly Inks image but you could win a number of prizes.

A Wee Little Card

Hi ya blogging world.  I missed coloring my Wee Rubber Stamps.  I decided to pull out this cutie today, Sweet Sparkle.  She was colored in Copics and mounted on Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6x6 paper.  I used my Viva Opal Paper Pen, Glossy Accents and Stardust Stickles to enhance the image with sparkle and shine.
Here you can see the glossy accents on the lantern.  I love that shine and it makes the glass look real!
The flowers were from I Am Roses and adhered with hot glue.

Have a great day!
