Trick or Treat Time!

Today I finished up this card featuring an Aurora Wings sprite. I went a little crazy with the embellishments but couldn't seem to stop. I love flowers so much! Hope you enjoy!

I made an easel card on a 6 x 6 inch card base. The Aurora Wings Pumpkin Sprite is a digital image and is colored with Copic markers. I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, my favorite supplier for flowers. The spider web die is from Whimsy Stamps and the bat fence is a Martha Stewart punch.

I colored up this little sweetie a few weeks ago and finally got her on a card today. Here are all the goodies I used to put this card together. Hope you enjoy and have a great day!

This is a digital stamp from Tiddly Inks. She can be found here:
I colored her with Copics. Hair: E49, E59, E99, E97 and Y21, Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00 and E000. Bird: B01, B00 and B000. Red on dress and cap: R59, R29 and R24.
The paper I used is from Jillybean Soup, Coconut Lime 6 x 6 paper pack:
The birds on wire, square and scallop frame dies are from Spellbinders. Label die from Whimsy Stamps. The baker's twine and buttons are from my stash.

Christmas in October?

After cleaning up my hobby room today, I felt like experimenting with a new stencil I got a couple weeks ago at the card makers showcase. Here's the result.

The stencil, from Penny Black, is the main image. I used the following Copic markers with my airbrush system. G21, G24 and G29. I sprayed the colors from light to dark. I then used R37 to finish the berries. I embellished the berries with pearls and Glossy Accents. The edges of the main image are distressed with Tim Holtz, "Old Paper". I also used Sheena Douglass' "Ageing Beautifully" stamp set to distress the image. I love the look of cracks and waterdrops to add interest.
The card is on a 6 x 6 inch base. Remaining supplies used: Bazzil cardstock, Making Memories "Mistletoe" printed paper, sentiment and label from Whimsy Stamps.
This is the inside sentiment. I bought this wood mounted stamp about 15 years ago. I haven't used this stamp for ages...good time to get it out again. The snow flakes are from a Stampin' Up set I've had for several years. Hope you enjoy! Have a blessed day!

Birth Announcements for My Granddaughter...Yippee!!

Addison Nicole has finally arrived and she's absolutely gorgeous (of course, I'm not all)! I started working on the birth announcements soon after the baby shower and couldn't wait to give them to the happy parents.
I used "All our Dreams" from Lili of the Valley. Here's the link:
I colored the image with Copics. Tree leaves: G99, G24, G21 and Y32. Blanket: R89, R85, R83 and R81. Sleeper: RV02 and RV00. Polka dots: Y02 and Y11. Baby's skin: E02, E01, E000 and R20.
I used Bazzil cardstock and embossed the background paper with a Sizzix embossing folder.
This is a standard A2 size card.

I designed the inside of the card on my Silhouette Cameo. The colors look a bit red, but it's actually a coral pink. Hope you enjoy!

First Post...Whoo hoo!!

So, after all the searching, reading and You Tube tutorials I think I finally have this "blog" thing figured out. I used to think I was pretty computer savvy...not anymore!
Since this is my first post I'm going to use an older card. Hopefully I'll remember the Copic colors and supplies I used.  Here we go!

Here is my Harry Potter inspired card.
This is Wizard, a Tiddly Inks digital image. He can be found here:
I used Copic markers to color him up. Hair: E49, E59, E35, E33 and E21, Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00 and E000. Pants and coat: W9, W7, W5 and W3. Scarf: R59, R46, R24, Y38, Y35 and Y32. I colored the glow from his wand with Y35 and used Glossy Accents inside his glasses. I also used a Copic Multi Liner to draw the lightening bolt on his forehead.
The sentiment "Protego Horribilis" is a spell which means "protect us from the dark arts".
The card is on a 6 x 6 inch card base and the paper is from my stash. I added some black pearls for embellishment. I wanted to keep it simple in case I decide to give this to a man. I inked the edges of the image with Tim Holtz distress ink, Old Paper.
Hope you enjoy!!
