Christmas Cards Made Last Year

Hi everyone.  I spent the past few nights cleaning up some of my files and organizing my ever growing inventory of digital stamps and images.  While moving, sorting and dragging deep in my computer I came across a couple of pictures of last years Christmas cards.  

It is always interesting to look back and see what was "in" last year on the craft table.  One tends to forget over the year ... well this one does!

These 3 cards all have images from Mo's Digital Pencil , were coloured with Copic's and sent out last year to family and friends.

Todays Colors

Today I am sharing Frozen Sweet Pea - Blooming Beauty and Iced Bleeding Heart from Lacy Sunshine Stamps.   

Both digital stamps were coloured with Copics.  I have a small set of water colour pencils that have been calling to me so today I experimented on the backgrounds with them.  They didn't come out exactly as I had envisioned but it was fun to try something different.

As you may notice I also came across my jar of Snow-tex and have added it to both images as well as glitter, Stickles crystal, Stickels lace and Folk Art acrylic paint. Thanks for stopping by.

Caroler's Three Christmas Card

Can you tell I have been looking through my past card files?  I came across this Christmas card made using two of Mo's Digital Pencil stamps.  Two images were merged to create the scene, Carolers Three and Christmas Lamp Post.  They were then coloured with Copic's.   The back ground was water coloured and snow-tex plus glitter completed the look.  Might have to colour this one up again this year.

Spirited Betty Coloured

Here is a Halloween stamp I coloured up last year.  She was coloured with Copics and is called Spirited Betty by Simply B Stamps.  One day she will make it on a card.

Halloween Blast from the Past

In the spirit of Halloween today I am sharing a card I made last year. The image is from Simply B Stamps called Demonic Babe. 

All embellishments and papers were from my stash. She is coloured with Copics but I don't remember the colours used.

Sauce Pans Cookie Crumbler - Recipe Card Challenge

Hi everyone. Here is a Recipe Card  for the Team A Challenge happening over on the Lacy Sunshine blog. Today I am showcasing one of  the scrumptious Cookie Crumblers from the Lacy Sunshine Bake Shoppe.  Her name is Sauce Pans Cookie Crumbler and she is the perfect fit for this cookie recipe card.

Coloured with Copics

The mixing spoon was cut out using my Cricut and coloured with Copics.

Out came my camera for pictures of the chocolate and butterscotch chips.  They were printed and fussy cut. A piece of velum with torn edges was added to look like wax paper.  The paper used is a happy find from my stash called Doilies from Crate Paper.  Other embellishments are from my stash.

Wispy Birthday Card

Autumn is such a beautiful time of year with all the golden yellows, greens and oranges out there.  How can one not be inspired to copy mother natures pallet .. after all, it works for her! 

I think Wispy looks right at home on this fall birthday card, don't you agree?

Coloured with Copics

 All embellishments and papers are from my stash.  
Most of my cards are sent off in the mail so embellishments are kept simple by choice.  
Less money spent on postal fees equals more crafting supplies for me!

Happy Fall Days

Today I have another fall card to share using Rory from Lacy Sunshine Stamps by the talented Heather Valentin.  The image is called Rory Collecting Autumn Leaves.  I merged Rory with a background  tree and fence than coloured the merged image with copic markers.

Rory Collecting Autumn Leaves Card - with back ground

Sorry I don't have the list of copic colours used.  This started out as a  "practice merging images and colouring backgrounds" that grew to the card you now see.

The papers, ribbon and embellishments are from my home stash.  The die is Acorn Swirl from Rococo Petites.

Easel Card with Rory Collecting Autumn Leaves

Today is my day to showcase the lovely Rory Collecting Autumn Leaves on the Lacy Sunshine Color Your World blog.  A perfect image for your fall cards and those leaf raking scrapbook pages.

I made an easel card and used papers from my stash, fall leaves & flower from Michael's mixed with an acorn swirl die cut.  Don't you think the combination makes a nice fall embellishment for this card?

Woodland Wisp "Wispy" Card

I just can't seem to get enough of Woodland Wisp "Wispy".  She is one of the fabulous digi stamps created by the talented Heather Valentin.  You can find Wispy and her friends over at Lacy Sunshine Stamps.

Wispy was coloured with Copics and all paper, embellishments came from my stash. Glitter on the wings is Stickles Crystal and Liquid Pearl Petal Pink was used for the bracelet.

And did I mention I just can't seem to get enough of this cute digi  ... here is another one coloured up with Copics. She is just too cute!

Stickles Crystal was used on the wings. Liquid Pearl accents were added to dress, bracelet and wings.
