Penny Black Stamp # 1361K


I colored this yesterday with every Copic I have (i think).... Then today I made this card .... The DP is a retired SU and used SU Old Olive CS and PTI Kraft to make this
4 1/4 X 5 1/2 card.... and SU Certainly Celery Ribbon

I really like how it turned out and have some other stamps laid out to start coloring.... can you tell I like coloring with all the mediums... but copics are very fast moving to the top of the list....

365 Days - Day 175 - Layering Stamps


Challenge today was to layer stamps... not by masking just stamping one on top of another.... so I chose this Penny Black Stamp "golden leaves 3982K" and stamped it with SU mellow moss....then i stamped the flower from SU "Organic Grace" with chocolate chip for the stem and the dusty durango for the flower and for the word "congratulations" - I cut them out and used dimensional under both added my buttons and there you have it.... the card is 5 1/2 X 3 and is made from PTI Kraft paper and imagine and sentiment are stamped on SU very vanilla CS....

365 Days - Day 174 - Just Peachy


This is the closest I can come to peachy... not a peach stamp anywhere and not any really peach colored card stock.... so I am pretending 2 things with this card .....
1). color of card stock is peach color 2). everything on this 5 1/2" X 3" card is straight.... somedays it just doesn't pay to try.... LOL

Stamps are Penny Black Polka Dot Pot 3382F
Polka Run 3639H
Stampin'Up Note of Thanks Stamp (not sure what set it is out of)

Stamped in Memento Black and used a SU Apricot Appeal Marker

Color Throw Down # 56 (CTD56) Challenge and 365 Days #172


I made this card for both challenges... The color throw down was to create a card using SU's new colors Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, and Bermuda Bay...and the other challenge was to make a card using alphas and numbers ...so I thought these colors and numbers just had to be a birthday card for my grandson... I used one of the boys from Penny Black Stamp #2453K Cool Friends ...the die cut letters and numbers are thickers from American Craft and series "remarks"....I just colored them with my SU markers..tore a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and colored picture with SU markers

365 Cards # 23 - Stamp Design



A lot of people have asked me about the stamp design on this box....It is from the company KLM Designs
The digital designs are easy to work with and they have a GREAT price and always have a freebie to try ....you won't be disappointed in their designs and their shop....

The sentiment is from this set as well and I just printed and cut apart...I colored the flowers with copic markers and this is was my second coloring with them....I am still learning and having so much fun....

Embossed Resist Technique


I have been looking for just the right giraffe stamp that I could afford and I found this beauty @ Whimsy Stamps. Another non active group I have been member of, is starting back up again and there is a challenge for emboss resist technique on a card...so that is why I made this card today... it is too dark and I did a poor job at distressing but love the giraffe... So here it is...and I think I am finished for the day....



Scrapbook Page


I DID IT !!!! I made my first scrapbook page in years..... I decided yesterday I was going to make a scrap page again and do it this week so I could get in on the challenge from Scrap and Stamp blog...the challenge was to create a scrap page and on it had to have a stamping and embossing... I used DP paper from my long unused papers and I used SU's stamp set "Love You Much" and stamped the hearts with VersaMark and embossed with clear embossing powder from SU. Then punched them out with the corresponding 3 heart punch from SU and adhered them with dimensionals.

I will have to continue to do a page often and get back in the habit.

Oh.... I made my page 6X6....
