Birthday Bear


I have a really simple card to share today.   I used a confetti embossing folder on the pink cardstock.    It doesn't photograph very well, but it adds the perfect amount of texture to the back of this card. 

Copics used:
Bear: E30, E31, E33, E35
Pink: RV04, RV02, RV00
Green: YG41
Ground: W3, W1,
Black glaze pen

Birthday Critters

Howdy friends,

I'm still on my rainbow kick.   I thought it would be fun to pair the letters stamped out in rainbow colors with the critters stamped in black ink.  I love the expressions on these little animals.  It makes me wonder what they are thinking about.   What do you think?  Should I be worried they are plotting something?

Giraffe Love

Hello friends, 

Giraffes are such funny lovable animals.  I love this image of these two hugging.  I left the front blank. I wasn't sure if I wanted to use this as a baby card or maybe a Mother's Day card.  What do you think? What sentiment would you put on it?

Red, White and Blue


Craft show season is coming and I'm starting to make some preparations.  I thought it would be a good idea to make some patriotic cards.  The birch press dies worked perfectly to incorporate red-white-blue themed backgrounds.  The remind me a little of fireworks. What do you think?

Dog-gone Hot

Hello Sunshine, 

This little doggie is from the SSS card kit.  I instantly fell in love these Frenchies.  This guy just looked like he was having a great day at the beach.   I used my copics to sketch in the water, sand and sky.   This is quickly becoming one of my favorite summer copic techniques.

Llama just say...

Hello all,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  We had a heat wave here in NY.  It was in the 90's for the last few days.  Thankfully, it was a little cooler next to the lake.    It didn't put a damper on stamping and coloring.  It was just too hot.   Here is a card I made last week.  I couldn't resist jumping on the llama bandwagon.  They are pretty cute.

Copics used:

Grey: W9, W7, W5, W3, W1

Yellow: Y15, Y13, Y11

What's Moo with you?

Cow's it going?

I made a few of these cards playing around with the placement of colors and ribbon.  One cow has a little more "white" in his muzzle.  The other one is more gray.  I couldn't decide which ribbon I liked better, so I did one with each.  What do you like best?
