Floral Thank You Card

Happy Sunday! I am back with a brand new card and a copic coloration video for you today!

I absolutely fell in love with the new  Floral Impressions 6x6 Paper Pack but it was hard to think about cutting into them. I know that you know what I mean!  So, I thought that I could use a digital image and size it so that it would fit into the paper as part of an overall scene.  I didn't take too long for me to decide to use this beauty: Crown of Daisies.  What a gorgeous, sweet image.  I think she looks so lovely nestled amongst all those beautiful flowers and greenery.  I chose all my copic markers based on the colors in the paper.

Copic Markers
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R30, R20
Lips: R20, R32, R24
Eyes: YG13, YG17
Hair: E50, E53, E55, E57
Dress: R01, R20, R32, R35, R37
Flowers: Y000, YR31, TR23, YG13, YG17

The sentiment was created using the Thanks Word and Shadow Die set. I cut the word out of some foiled paper.

I did record myself coloring the image. There is no voice-over because, to be perfectly honest, my house is sooo noisy all the time with all of us here. We are still under curfew and at home schooling.  So, I am sparing you the noise of my 3 boys and instead added some easy-listening music!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are inspired by this card. I am so happy with how it turned out.

Wishing You Sunny Days

  Happy Saturday! The sun is shining, the weather is unseasonably warm so that means.......I am going to start to wash my windows!! LOL!  It may be a little labour intensive but I love spending time outdoors and there is satisfaction in having clean, sparkling windows!!

It is also release day over at Whimsy Stamps and I am quite excited to be sharing this card with you today!

Whimsy Stamps now has two new slimline embossing folders and I used the Slimline Wave Lengths Embossing Folder for this card.  I thought it looked a little bit like rain falling down! I also used the Slimline Clouds Die as the frame for my card and the sun was diecut from the Up in the Clouds Die Set.  The image is from the brand new Gnome Get Well Clear Stamp Set and the images in the set are adorable and each one has matching sentiment stamps. So perfect! I used my Misti tool to stamp by sentiment onto the clouds.  It is my must have tool for stamping sentiments onto cards perfectly straight!

The image was colored with copic markers and then fussy cut. Here are the markers that I used:

0, C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, R20, R22, R24, R27, R29, B23, B26, B29, E41, E43, E44, E00, E11


Thanks so much for stopping by! I will see you tomorrow with a new card!

Springtime Paper Folder

 Happy Tuesday! Hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend.  I shared this over on the Whimsy Stamps Blog and I also wanted to share this Springtime creation here on my blog as well.  I made a coloration video that shares how I used Copic Markers to color up this very sweet digital image. You will find it lower down in this post. If you want a tutorial on how I made this wallet, let me know in the comment section below!

I was inspired by the length of the papers in the Slimline Buttercup Paper pack to create a paper folder/wallet.  I then decorated it with the very sweet Love Me Not Mae Digital image as my focal image and a die cut using the Slimline Woodland Cottage Die.  This layout would also make an awesome slimline card.

I printed the image using my Epson printer onto Copic X-Pressit paper.

Here is the coloration video. You can view it on YouTube in HD HERE

Light of the World

Hello Everyone! As it is Good Friday, I thought it would be a good time to post this card.  In fact, I have been saving it for today.

To create this card, I used one of the papers in the Glorious Sky Slimline Paper Pack.  I die cut one the dies in the Savior Die Set out of some shiny, gold foiled paper.  It catches the light in the most beautiful way.  I used a sentiment from the Savior Clear Stamp Set and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  Check below for the one that I used. I love the tone of gold from this one.

Have a good Easter weekend wherever you are.  I know that once again, it looks different from what we would want but focus on the good.  We will get there.

 Happy Thursday and Happy April Fool's Day! Did someone play a trick on you today?  Mother Nature pulled a wee prank...we woke up to SNOW!!! Which makes the fact that I am posting this very spring-themed card today very ironic!  It is all fine. I am sure that this snow will melt and we will get our Springtime very soon!

Today is release day over at Whimsy Stamps and as I like to do, I have mixed some new product with some previously released to create this happy, Spring card.

The new product is the gorgeous paper from the Slimline Buttercup Paperpack.  Each and every paper is gorgeous and I used 4 of the patterns for my card today.

I used the Slimline Scalloped Edge Pocket Die to create the pocket portion of the card.  I adhered it to my base using some strong ScorePal tape so that it would be really secure. The little butterflies are cut using the same die set.  For the sentiment I used the Friend Word and Shadow die set and cut it out of some white cardstock.

The wonderful image is a digital stamp illustrated by Crissy Armstrong.  I thought it was the perfect image for an Easter card.  It is aptly called Cuddle Bunny.  I colored the image using Copic Markers that were chosen to match the paper.  This in one of my favorite ways to choose a color palette for my image.

Copic Markers Used:
Face: E50, E51, E53, E93, E95, R30, R20, R24
Hair: E40, E41, E42, E44
Dress: Y0000, Y000, Y21, Y23M Y26
Ribbons: B00, B52, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Shoes: W1, W3, W5
Bunny: 0, W00, W1
Flowers: C00, Y21, YR12
Sky: BG000, BG01, BG02, BG10, BG11, BG23
Grass: YG21, YG23

After coloring the image, I die cut it using the Spring Ovals Die Set.  Then I finished up my coloring in the background, again with copic markers.  I used a very old punch to create the tab for the top of my colored insert.  The final touch was to add a couple of flower shaped buttons to the sides and then my card was done!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Blending In

Happy Thursday! We are having a lovely and warm Spring day here!  There is only a teeny, wee bit of snow left in a couple of spots of our yard.  They are always the last areas to completely melt away.  I have my windows pollen yet.....and it is just so wonderfully fresh!
I hope that wherever you are, the weather is beautiful too!

I have a new card to share with you. I used the Blending In Clear Stamp from Whimsy Stamps' latest release and the name of the stamp may clue you in to looking a little bit closer. See how long it takes you to spot it!  I fussy cut mine but there is a coordinating die: Blending In Outline Die.

I colored all the dogs and the interloper with a bunch of different copic marker combos. In the video below you can see how I used different combos.  Here the markers that I used:

To create my card, I used an A2 sized black cardstock base.  I cut one of the cute papers from the Slimline Black and White Dog Paper pack with one of the dies in the Extreme Postage Die Set.

The sentiment and pawprints were heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Here is the coloration process as well as the creation of the card. You can view it in HD on YouTube HERE:


Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your day and the coming weekend.

Zen Garden

Happy Saturday! The weekend has rolled around once again and this time it has brought some sunny weather and the promise of warm temperatures to come in the next days. Today is the official start of meteorological Spring but will snow still on the ground, it certainly seems like it is still winter!

All this talk of Spring has me dreaming of flowers and so this card seems very fitting to post today!

I used the new Zen Garden Rubber Cling stamp for my card.  It was embossed with white embossing powder onto some Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  I then use Zig Real Brush Clean Color markers for the coloration. I really like how the white lines pop against the colors and how bright and cheerful it all looks!

The sentiment is from the You're Too Kind Clear Stamp set and was white heat embossed onto some vellum and then die cut with the coordinating Thanks Word and Shadow Die Set. die.

I finished off the card by scattering a few colored adhesive dots along the top of the card!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Spring and Stay Safe!
