NIGHT OWL

Hey there, I'm back again with a super cute Paper Smooches image.  Love this guy colored up!  I had something totally different in mind for the layout, but it just wasn't working.  That is until I saw this layout on the Sweet Sunday Sketch FB page yesterday...it pulls all of the elements in and really makes it work!  Love a good sketch!


The owl was stamped with Tuxedo Black on to Neenah Solar White, colored with Copic markers then fussy cut.  The branch is a Magnolia Doohickeys tree die that is absolutely perfect for a perch and also colored with Copics!  The background layer is My Favorite Things Woodgrain Background stamped on Kraft card stock, and the night sky paper is my all time favorite Graphic 45 that is actually a Halloween line.  Love it!  A quick punch for the moon and a MFT rose die completes the card.

ENJOY YOUR DAY & YOU GNOME ME SO WELL

Hey there, I know, I know...I barely spend any time on my blog any more.  Although I haven't been coloring much, I have at least been getting my craft on with some die cut projects.  They are quick and easy and offer instant gratification.  Here's an easy peasy one that I made with My Favorite Things dies and stamps.  So simple, yet kind of elegant...don't you think?



SUPPLIES: 
STAMPS:  MFT More Essential Sentiments
PAPER:  Neenah Solar White; Bella Blvd Sand & Surf; Bazzill
INK:  Memento Tuxedo Black 
ACCESSORIES:  Sizzix Big Shot; MFT Die-namics (Blueprints 15, Wild Greenery); MISTI; Zig 2-Way Glue pen; KaiserCraft Black Pearls; adhesive
SIZE OF FINISHED PROJECT:   A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")

So...let's talk about gnomes...you either like them or you don't.  Am I right?!?  I have some gnomes in my garden, so I guess I would be in the "not a hater" category.  My preference is the cute, little guys...not the creepy, sneaky ones that like to play tricks when you aren't looking!  *snort*  Anyway, have you seen MFT "You Gnome Me" illustrated by Birdie Brown?  Amazingly adorable, I tell ya!  I couldn't wait to break out my markers for this one!  Yep, that's right...I colored!  Ha!



Blueprints 16 was used to cut the background panel.  A Stitched Circle Frame was cut from Kraft and white card stock.  The Kraft pieces were stamped with the Woodgrain Background.  Acetate encloses the "window" while the white frame finishes the inside.  The new Simple Leaf Flourishes is the perfect touch to lay down the base for the greenery.  The red rose is the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose and I absolutely love how it can be shaped to look so realistic!  QC Fringed Mum and Magnolia leaves were used as filler too complete the card front.

Here's the inside...the stitched panel was cut with Blueprints 21, stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah then colored with Copic markers.  I really had a blast coloring this!

A LITTLE BIRDIE TOLD ME...

Hey there, goodness, it's been FOREVER since I've crafted!  Ugh!  It was a rough 2014...and 2015 didn't start out that great either!  Things are finally starting to settle back down, but I definitely have a busy year coming up!  I've missed hanging out with my crafty peeps at Memories of Time, so I decided to break out my Copics and teach a coloring class!  *gasp*  Is everyone else going through Whipper Snapper withdrawals or is it just me?  LOL!  Here's a little something to fix us right up!


The image is Home "Tweet" Home, and it's just too cute for words!  That dopey little frog just kills me!  OK, confession time...I did say I've been busy and haven't had any crafty time...I actually colored this in the fall and just haven't had time to share.  I went on a week long coloring spree and this is just one of the cards that I made.  Yep, I've been holding out on you!  There is more Whipper Snapper yummy-ness I still need to share, but I'll save that for another day!
