Angelica Angel from Kraftin Kimmie


I colored this image up a few weeks ago for the Kraftin Kimmie Kolour it up challenge but did not get onto a card until now.

I love Angelica Angel and really enjoyed making this card.  This stamp is no longer available however she does have some great angel stamps. 





ProMarkers: Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush and Baby Pink
Copics: C0, C1, C3, W1, E41, E43, YG67, YG17, G00, R37, R35, R32

I used the A2 Layers Combo dies from the Stamp Doctor to create my layers.

I used Nuvo Mica Mist in Antique Gold to add some color to the white doily. 


I used pattern paper, cardstock and ribbon from my stash.

I hope you enjoyed!   See you soon!

Furry Friends

Yep, I am back with anther card.......As a dog mom, I tend to gravitate to anything dog related so when I saw this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp I knew I had to have it.





I used the Stamp Doctor's A2 Layers combo dies to cut my layers.

I then stamped the image with Simon Says stamp Intense Black ink and stamped on Inkadinkado masking paper and masked the image.   

I then used Tim Holtz distress ink in:

Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass to create the background.   It got a bit darker on the edges however I am ok with that.   Normally I would have embossed some white snowflakes in the backgound however I was making this around 1 AM and did not want to wake my husband with my heat tool so I left the background alone.   

Once I had the inking done, I pulled the masking paper and colored the image.   

Copics:

W1, W3, W5,
E31, E33, E35
E41, E43, E44
R37, R35, R59
YG67, YG63, YG17
E18, E15

Nuvo Aqua Flow Glitter Gloss Pen for the sparkle on the hat, scarf and antlers.

I then free hand cut some white glitter paper to create snow and cut a strip of cardstock for the sentiment and then free handed the fish tail to create a banner.



I hope enjoyed!   

Festive Lantern from Sparkle N Sprinkle

I absolutely fell in love with the  Festive Lantern Digital image when I saw it on Sparkle and Sprinkle’s site.  It’s available in both a digital stamp format as well as Rubber Stamp.
I went with the digital version because I knew I wanted to enlarge it to sit on an A2 card base without much else.  I wanted simple and elegant and I feel like I achieved just that!



I colored the image with Copic Markers and prismacolor pencils:
Copics:  R59, R4, R37, R35, R32, Y35, Y38
Prismacolor Pencils: Raspberry  PC1030, Yellow Ochre PC942, Warm Grey 20% PC1051 and Warm Grey 70% PC1056
White Uniball Gel Pen
I cut my layers with the A2 Layers combo die set.  
I printed the sentiment on vellum and wrapped it around the image.   
I hope you enjoyed!    See you soon!

Santa's Clothes from the Stamp Doctor

Well, we are in the final countdown to Christmas and I am still trying to get out the last of my Christmas cards so I thought it would be fun to use Santa's Clothes Combo from the Stamp Doctor. 

'


I stamped the coat with Simon Says Stamp Intense black ink and colored with Copics:

R59, R37, R35, R32
N7, N5
Y38, E99
C1

Once this was colored I ran it with the coordinating die through my bigshot.   

I then used the Circle Frames set to cut the white circle and decorative mat with red glitter paper.




I then added some ribbon and enamel dots from my stash.

Lastly I added the sentiment which I just think is the cutest.


I hope you enjoyed!


See you soon!
