Christmas is just around the corner... I've been working on some cards so I haven't had much time to post but here is a sneak peak at a couple of cards I've made.

Surprise design...

Well, I am working on this little girl and will be finishing the card soon! What will it be?  Stay tuned..

Image is Gorjuss stamp freebie from scrapdelizblogspot.com. I wanted to try my Warm Grey copics.  I need to get some of the darker ones but liked the way she turned out!  I thought, why in the world do I need Warm Greys?  If I want to color something gray, I just get the Neutral Greys.  But then I realized that the Warm Grays are for colors of hair that are more like an Ash Brown.  So there, that answers my question of why do I need Warm Greys!!

I used the wonderful Dienamic Ovals to cut out the oval shape!  And of course, Copic markers R24, R22, and R20.  I get them at Hobby Lobby or Michael's.

The finished card will be coming up soon!!

This is one of my favorite seasons of the year and I couldn't wait to make a card!

I loved coloring this image and was not sure if the pumpkins would look good with it! But I think they do and loved the way they came out.  I masked the image so that I could stamp the pumpkins over it and give it a behind look like it shows on the card.  Cardstock, ribbon, stamp, tag die cut and button and designer paper is from Michael's and JoAnnes.


Stampin' Up Idea Card


I loved making this card! Can you tell? :) Its very cheerful and I got all the ideas from a company I am getting very fond of: Stampin' Up! None of the supplies used from them but I would to get some in the near future! I love the ideas of stamping the flowers the way you see them shown on this card.

How I did it?:

I used clear stamps of flowers, leaves and butterfly and stamped them randomly on the card.  Then I stamped another flower and a butterfly and placed them over the already stamped image I had done originally to give it a 3-D effect.  I used dimensionals to raise them up and glued them to the cardstock. Absolutely love it!! I don't have the puncher to cut them out, so I had to that manually.  That's what I may be buying next!  

The picture below is sideways to show the 3-D effect of the flower and top and middle butterfly!  I really love it!!

Supplies are again from Michael's, JoAnne's and the Oval is from My Favorite Things Dienamics.
