Gorilla!

Hello helloand happy Monday!  

I hope you had a great weekend and ready for another fabulous week!
I'm sharing a card using the Gorilla (SKU# M1182), isn't he adorable?  
I just love him and I decided to color him with some watercolor pencils.  


First, I stamped him with archival black ink on watercolor paper and color away!  
Simple and very relaxing, I finished the card with a few add-ons, Viola!

Have a great day and happy coloring!

Holiday tags...

Hello hello!  
Since the holidays are coming up really soon, I'm sharing a couple of fun simple tags using some of my favorite Eyelet Outlet goodies!

First tag!  I'm a big fan of the sock monkey!  Have you seen the Sock Monkey with Santa hats yet?!  Aren't they just super cute?!  Possibly singing a few holiday songs under the tree?  I also decorate the tree with some jewel strips, and finish the tag with some white pearl strips.


Supplies:


Second tag!  It's a winter wonderland in New England.  Brr... 
I had so much fun creating this winter scene with some snowflakes, snowman, trees, and a perfect saying bubble!



Supplies:

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great crafty day!

Fun, fun, FUN!!!

Hello hello and happy Monday!
Hope all of you had a fabulous weekend and ready for another exciting week!
I'm here to share a couple of cards today. 

First up, I can't get enough of the Incredibowl set, she is just totally awesome!  She is just totally styling with her bowling shirt and her bowling shoes...  FABULOUS!


To match her amazing outfit, I figured it would be fun creating a fun background with some pearlescent Pan Pastel.  First, I placed the stencil on a mixed media cardstock, I pressed the versamark ink pad directly on the stencil, lift the stencil, then apply pan pastel with the sponge tool.  I also sprayed the background with a fixative when done. 


And here is the whole card.


Since I have so much fun.  I made another card using the Reindeer Games set


Copic used:
Incredibowl set:  BG10. C0, C1, C3, C5, E000. E00. E11. RV0000, RV55, RV66

Brrr... Feeling Frosty!!!

Hello hello and happy Thursday!

Winter is here in New England...  Just last week, we got our very first Nor'easter of the year.  
We got over 9 inches of snow....  Brrr!!!

So, I stayed behind and make a day of relaxing and crafting!
It's the perfect excuse to create a card for the Feeling Frosty challenge over at Art Impressions
I use one of the new adorable snowman, Seasons Greetings set.


To create the 'snow effect'...  Thanks to my dear friend Karen, she introduced these awesome frantáge   from Stampendous which is perfect for the snowman.  


And finish the card up with a sentiment, VIOLA!


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
Don't forget to check out the Frosty challenge at the Ai blog!

Hope the Angel!

Hello hello and happy Monday!
It's a super exciting week over at Art Impressions!
They are having a product swap with Scrapbook Adhesive!!!

Today, I'm sharing a card using the adorable Hope Angel (SKU# T4179).



And here are the adhesive that I used on the card.  


Since, it's the holiday... why not, add a bit of glitter?  I used the 4"x6" adhesive sheet.  
First, I sticked the adhesive sheets on a plain card stock, then run it through with a die cut machine with a circle die, I finished it up with pouring glitter on the sticky surface.   Viola!  


As for me... I love to fussy out many of my images, these 3D Foam Squares are totally perfect!!!


And here is the side view!


To finish the card, I added the Christmas Scripts (SKU# G1466).
I also used the E-Z Squares dispenser to put the card together and the 3D Dodz for the button.


Thanks so much for stopping by today and stay tune for tomorrow!!!
Have a super crafting day!

Copics:  E00, E11. G000, G0000, N0, N2, R22, R24, R27, R29, Y11, Y15, Y38

Getting ready for Christmas?!

Hello hello!  I know, I know... it's that time of the year!

I'm sharing a couple of quick Christmas cards using some Eyelet Outlet goodies!

First up, off to deck the halls with these adorable ornament brads!  Since, it's the holidays...  we need some sparkle or blings, right?!  So, I also added some grey jewel bling strips.


For my second card, I used some Holly brads to decorate my sentiment.  And I created a border with  some silver pearls from the Big Bling sheets.


Have you started on your holiday/Christmas cards yet?  
Can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Happy EARLY Thanksgiving!

Hello hello!

I can't believe Thanksgiving (for our American friends) is just a week away.  I want to create a sweet little card for you using the adorable Little Pilgrims (SKU# J1107).  Aren't they just so cute?


I also added a sentiment called Happy Thanksgiving (SKU# F1655) which is totally perfect!
I absolutely adore the font!

It's Monday... Stressed?

Hello hello and hope you are ready for another great week?
It's Monday... Are you Stressed (SKU# F1432)?  When I first saw this awesome stamp called 
Lion up a Tree (SKU# U1187), it totally caught my eye!  It's the perfect MONDAY card, hehe!


For this week, instead of using my favorite Copics markers...  I decided to color the image with distress markers instead.  I absolutely adore his expression!   It's just priceless!


And love this sentiment called Stressed?!  Totally perfect!


Distress markers:  Wild honey, rusty hinge, gathered twigs, mowed lawn, and black soot

Thanks so much for stopping by today and CHEERS!
