HOLLY JOLLY

Hey there, it seems like forever since I've hosted a Splitcoaststampers VSN challenge.  The overall theme is "Frozen" and my challenge is "Deer" Winter, Let's Break Up!  It's a photo inspiration challenge and wowsers...what a beautiful picture it is!  You can check out the challenge details here.


This adorable reindeer is called Vixon's Holiday by Whipper Snapper Designs.  He was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White then colored with Copic markers.  I kept the layout simple to fit into the VSN time limit.  So cute!  The berries and the reindeer's nose all have clear glaze on them for a nice, subtle shine and the snow has Wink of Stella glitter pen on it.

EAT MY DUST!

Hey there, happy Bellarific Friday to ya!  This week we had an amazing photo to use as inspiration and since fall is my all time favorite season, I loved it!  As I looked at the photo trying to decide what I wanted to make, I started thinking about the drives hubby and I take just to look at the fall foliage.  Then I focused on the tire swing.  Tire...drive...see where I'm going here?  Meet "Senior"-ita Dolores!  Isn't she a hoot!?!  Dolores jumped on the ol' scooter and away she went for a drive just to admire all the fall colors!



Dolores was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut then popped up on foam.  The oranges weren't quite dark enough, so I added some additional shading with a couple T markers...did you know you could deepen your shadows that way?  Love my Ts, even though I don't break them out very much.  The headlight and goggles both have Sakura Clear Glaze on them for a nice, subtle shine.  Oh, and that cool CAS layout is Sweet Sunday Sketch #240.

CAS CHRISTMAS MAKE 'N TAKES


Hey there, guess what...I've combed blogland and Pinterest and found TONS of inspiration for CAS (Clean and Simple) Christmas cards!  For those that like to make your cards in advance or for all the procrastinators out there (yep, that's me...*guilty*), I've decided to put together some Make 'N Take kits to sell at Memories of Time...you can make them in the store any time during business hours or make them from the comfort of your own home!  Watch for Cami to post details on the blog soon!


This first card was CASED from yours truly.  My friend, Cathy, loved this card that I made while on Splitcoaststamper's Dirty Dozen (you have to be an SCS Fan Club member to see it).  Don't you just love a white on white Christmas card?  It doesn't get much easier than this!  I made stickers out of the letters using Scor-Tape...my new fav thing!  The snowflake was layered then popped up on foam and topped off with a Crystal Sparklet.


SUPPLIES: 
STAMPS:  None
PAPER:  Neenah Solar White; Best Creation Inc White Glitter card stock
INK:  None
ACCESSORIES:  Sizzix Big Shot; MFT Die-namics (By the Letters, Let it Snowflake, Horizontal Stitched Strips); Darice embossing folder; Scor-Tape; Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Thin 3D Foam Squares; KaiserCraft Silver Sparklet; adhesive
SIZE OF FINISHED PROJECT:  A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")

MFT dies make this next CAS layout a snap!  Doodlebug paper was used for the snow-filled sky while MFT dies create the winter scene.  The sentiment stamp is from Our Craft Lounge and is no longer available.  The snowdrifts were layered with foam, Stickles were applied to the edges of the snow/trees and silver rhinestones complete the card.


SUPPLIES: 
STAMPS:  OCL White Christmas
PAPER:  Neenah Solar White; Doodlebug Designs Inc Santa Express
INK:  Memento Lady Bug
ACCESSORIES:  Sizzix Big Shot; MFT Die-namics (Tree Lines, Snow Drifts); Stamp-a-ma-jig; Star Dust Stickles; Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Thin 3D Foam Squares; KaiserCraft Silver rhinestones; adhesive

HAT-BEE BIRTHDAY!

Hey there, this is one of the cards I colored a while ago.  I hadn't done any paper crafting for months, and when I finally sat down and colored, I didn't hardly put my markers down for a week!  




This card was so fun to make!  The image is Hat-Bee Birthday from Whipper Snapper Designs.  It was stamped several times with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White then colored with Copic markers.  The layers were fussy cut then popped up on foam.  The wings have Clear Wink of Stella and the nose has Sakura Clear Glaze for a nice, subtle shine.

Here's a side view so you can see the layers.  One wing, the body, the head and hat is the second layer; the head and hat are the third layer and the nose is the last.  That's four layers in all!

The pretty flower is a MFT die that was shaped with Susan's Garden Tool kit.  The kit has EVERYTHING you can possibly need to shape realistic looking flowers.  LOVE!

BEE:  Y17, Y15, Y11, Y00, C6, C4, C2, C0  WINGS:  BG70, BV20, 0  HAT:  YG03, YG01, YG0000, BG72, BG02, BG70  FLOWERS:  R30, R0000, BG72, BG02, BG70  SKY:  BG72, BG70

BOO

Hey there, I had some time to color yesterday and I couldn't wait to ink up Whipper Snapper Designs Pumpkin Snowman.  I had a blast coloring this adorable image!  See that orange panel at the top?  It was inspired by this amazing card by Sandy Allnock.  I've used my Copics to color large spaces in the past, so why not color a "faux paper panel" to make everything matchy matchy?  I'll definitely be doing this technique again!



The stitched panel was cut using My Favorite Things Blueprints 15...I'm hooked on that die right now!  The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto  Neenah Solar White then colored with Copic markers.  Sakura Clear Glaze gives the kitty's nose a nice, subtle shine.  Black twine was wrapped around the panel and a Tim Holtz stencil was used to sponge the sentiment on a die cut from the Blueprints 15 set.  LOVE!  The panel was popped up on foam to finish it off.  Easy peasy!


COPIC COLORING: 
STACKED PUMPKINS:  YR18, YR04, YR02, Y35, Y11, YR30, T3, T1, E57, E55, E53  BAT:  C4, C2, C0, Y11  CAT:  C4, C2, C0, R000, R30, YG03, YG21, YG00, Y11  MOON:  Y34, Y11, YR30  LEAVES:  YG03, YG21, YG00, YR04, YR02  GROUND:  YG03, YG21, YG00  FAUX PAPER PANEL:  YR18, YR04, YR02, T3, T1
