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
Prismacolor Warm Grey 70%

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.   


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

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!

Kolour it up Challenge from Kraftin Kimmie

Today I am back with a little coloring for the Kraftin Kimmie Kolour it up challenge.   

I picked this image because I need to do a birthday card for my boss who is an avid golfer.    

I got a start and then a playful pup pulled me away.   I will finish the coloring and get the card made up tomorrow.

Stay tuned for the finished product tomorrow!

Angelica Angel from Kraftin Kimmie- Kolour it Up Challenge

After being under the weather and taking several days off from my craft room I am back with a fun stamp from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.

My incredible friend Krafty Girl Keri Parish sent me this stamp as part of my Christmas gift.   Not only is it a great stamp set, but it also has a big sentimental significance.

This month (Dec 16th) marks the 15th anniversary since my little brother passed away after a car accident.  The day we took him off of life support I bought my first angel at the hospital gift shop.   Ever since I have been collecting angels.

ProMarkers: Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush and Baby Pink
Copics: C0, C1, C3, W1, E41, E43, YG67, YG17, G00, R37, R35, R32
Prismacolor Warm Grey 70%

Hope you enjoyed.  See you soon!

Color it up challenge from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps is having a color it up challenge.   Prizes can be won and a guest DT spot is up as well.
Although I got these into the folders in Kraftin Kimmies Group on Facebook, I was not able to get blogged until today so I figured I would combine Day 1-3.

Thus far I have colored up Krafty Life (need to get her onto a card) 

Day 1

And then I finished her yesterday for Day 2

Tonight I started this fun image for Day 3

I hoped to get more of him colored up tonight however a long day at work meant for a little coloring, but even a little coloring is good practice.

I will be back daily with more- whether it be little or a lot......  This is so much fun!

See you soon
