Monsters and Coffee

Today I am back with a fun monster from the Monster Fun set from Gerda Steiner, from the shop Crafty Doodle Chick!

I just love monster stamps!   I paired with a sentiment from Coffeesaurus (also Gerda Steiner) 

This is the look I give my husband before I drink coffee too!  hehe.

And my card:   

I did some simple coloring with Spectrum Noir Markers:

Used BT7, BAT5, BT1 and IB3
PL5, PL4, PL2

I die cut a couple of circles to mat him on and fussy cut him out.   I used pattern paper and card stock from my stash and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and then cut the banner flag.   

Grab Coffeesaurus here: and Monster Fun here:

Hope you enjoyed!

Cardinal Bird from Silly Shell's Digis

Today we got the first real measurable snow here in Colorado since October and it really helped to make it feel more like Christmas time.   I love winter weather, as long as I am cozy inside with a cup of coffee (or cocoa) and a good crafty project.

Today I share Cardinal Bird on a branch from Silly Shell's on Etsy.  I just love all of her digi's.  Grab here:

I colored the cardinal with my Spectrum Noir Markers: DR7, DR5, DR3, DR1
IG6, IG4 and CR10

I added some stickles to the bird for a snowy winter like feel.  I used pattern paper and cardstock from my stash and a sticker from Authentique- Petite Diction Christmas added a fun sentiment.

See you soon!

Dancing Reindeer

I'm back with another cute Christmas image from Sasayaki Glitter.   This Dancing Reindeer is just so cute.  Grab him here

I did a coloring video with him, he was so fun to color!   I colored one handed as we have a new puppy and at 12 weeks old is very cuddly at times and wanted to be held while I colored.     For colors used see my video.  

Hope you enjoyed!
