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!

SNOWPILE!

Hey there, it's finally time for the main Virtual Stamp Night (VSN) challenges through Splitcoaststampers (SCS)!  This is for my challenge, Gotcha!  We're about to have the biggest snowball fight that SCS has ever seen!  An SCS Fan Club membership is up for grabs to one lucky participant...you can find the challenge details here.  




These cute little snowballs are from Whipper Snapper Designs.  Stinkin' cute, huh?  They were stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White then colored with Copic markers.  If you look closely, you can see the shimmer from a Wink of Stella pen on the snowballs and snowflake and the noses and shoes have a nice, subtle shine thanks to a Sakura Clear Glaze pen.

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.


COPIC COLORING: 
SKIN:  E11, E000, E0000, R30  HAIR, TIRES:  C6, C4, C2, C0  SCOOTER:  YR18, YR04, YR02, T3, T1, YG03, YG21, YG00  HEADLIGHT:  BG72, BG70  HELMET:  YR18, YR04, YR02, T3, T1  GOGGLES:  YG03, YG21, YG00, BG72, BG70  PANTS:  YG67, YG63, YG61  SHIRT:  YG03, YG21, YG00  SWEATER:  YG67, YG63, YG61, YG03, YG21, YG00

Thanks for stopping by! 


Hope you can join in for next week's Bellariffic Fridays Sketch challenge!  Email your card to Em by Thursday, October 23, to be included on Bloggabella...you could win some Bella Bucks, but you have to use a current stamp!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

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
