Sailor Edwin

Thought I would use Edwin this time. He is just as cute as Tilda, even though there aren't near as many Edwin's as Tilda's.

Sailor Edwin is colored with copics. His flashlight has stardust stickles. The dp is all basic grey. They wouldn't be making anymore paper. :( Always loved their paper. The frame and label at the bottom are  diecuts from shapeabilities. Gros grain ribbon is down both sides. The one has a yellow circle clip and the other side is 3 yellow pez-a-bling squares. I left the label at the bottom blank so I could add whatever sentiment I needed when I send him off.

Christmas in February

I almost didn't make it but I did finish my Christmas card for February 25th. I hadn't used a Tilda stamp in a long time so I decided I should remedy that. I love Tilda.

What a comedy of errors this card was. I hadn't planned on using the burgundy ribbon but I put the tape too high for the lace so I either had to put the lace too high or add something. I elected to add the ribbon. I was going to put a little wooden tree where the poinsettia is. I was trying to make the tree green and it dropped and I couldn't find it so I put the hero arts poinsettia with a gold dew drop in the center instead. (then I found the tree, oh well.) Tilda is colored with prisma color and spectrum noir pencils. The tree is a die cut from memory box. The top has a dew drop and all the other flowers have gold stickles on them. The lace is from Target's One Spot. 
Merry February 25th!

Kite Girl

I made this card using scraps I had laying about. even the image was just laying around. Gotta use up some of those scraps. They are just having more and more babies.:)

The image is a digi from Saturated Canary. I colored her using my new Spetrum Noir pencils. I had heard a bunch of good things about them so I had to get them. I only bought the pink set as I wanted to check them out before I bought them all. Well.... here is my opinion - the jury is still out. I want to try them on some other paper before I make a final verdict. Not sure if this was the best paper for these pencils. The papers are all scraps and I'm not sure who makes all of them. The lace and flowers were from Target's one spot. a few sequins and a half pearl and a little bit of star dust stickles complete the card. The blue and green colors are done with prisma color pencils.

I don't know why but images of umbrellas intrigue me. So here is a card using a stamp from stubby stampers.

The image is colored with copics. The raindrops and puddles have blue wink of stella on them. The strips of blue and red are from bobunny. The yellow is a scrap of yellow cardstock. The die cut with the words is from shapeabilities. I wrote the words myself and put a gel pen in the holes to make them stand out more.
What other words would you use with this image? I'm sure there are some cute ideas you could use.

Sketch Cards

I saw this technique to make your image look like a sketch. So of course I had to try it. 

The image is from stubby stampers. It is stamped with black and colored with white, gray, and black prisma color pencils. I added a scrap of pink paper and some sequins. Pretty simple.

Here is another sketch card only I added a bit of color.

The corners are punched but there is no markings on the punch as to who makes is. The reds are die cuts from shapeablities. The coloring goes so fast because you don't need to be perfect.

Pink Penguin

Well the penguin isn't pink but it is a card with lots of pink and a penguin.

This little guy is from Great.... well I can't remember but he is cute. He is colored with copics. The snowflakes have start dust stickles. The hearts are from a border punch from fiscars. I have no recollection where the love stamp is from and I'm just too lazy to get up and look. It is probably retired from somewhere as it is pretty old. I tend to keep my stamps for a long time. The border of embossed snowflakes is from Darice. (that one I remembered. lol) There is pink twill tape and pink and cream twine wrapped over the twill tape. The scalloped circle is a die cut from nestabilities. 
Happy Valentine's Day.

Valentine Nellie

I made a few Valentine's Day cards. Here is my first one. I made it for my granddaughter who has an elephant theme for her room. Actually it is her mother who decided that for her as she is only 10 months old. But I like elephants so I'm thrilled.

The stamp is from Wild Rose Studio and colored with copics. The papers are all scraps that were sitting around. I have too many scraps so I thought I should use some. lol One little heart punch from a scrap punch out from a fiscars border punch. The rest of the dots are sequins. 
Hope you enjoy. I do enjoy reading your comments.
