Simon Says Stamp 2012 July Card Kit

Better late than never, right?
I finally got to working on the amazing card kit from Simon Says Stamp.  Some of the designs are inspired by Kristina Warner.  Thanks to Heidi, for telling me to get scrappin'!!!  (I did do 15 LOs last weekend at a crop - so I'm not totally slacking!!)

Day 7 Online Holiday Card class

This card was based on a card from Kristina Werner - May be you Blessed Card.  I had all of the items - except the specific snowflakes, but I really like how it turned out.

Day 6 - Online Holiday card class

I got to use the Memory Box country landscape die, again.  What a cool die.  I didn't have the die for the stars, so I stamped my own.  This Peace Card, is based on one from Jennifer McGuire.

Bonus Day 2 - Online Holiday Class

The idea of this set of cards was to use a stamp that would necessarily be deemed as Christmasy.  So, I chose a Kraftin' Kimmie (coloured with copics) and used Basic Grey Aspen pp.  The sentiment and stars are from Hero Arts.

Bonus Day 1 - Online Holiday Class

I love this memory box die!  So pretty with the distress inks behind it.  My card is based on Debby Hughes card.

Day 5 Online Holiday Class

This card is based on a card made by Shari Carroll.  I used a cuttlebug embossing folder and cut out the tree after it was embossed.  I added bling, instead of the die cut circles.  I used an older line of Basic Grey for the pp.  For the background embossing folder, I used last year's Tim Holtz folder.

Day 4 Online Holiday Card Class

This card is based on the card done by Jennifer McGuire.  I used Tim Holtz's bird, copic masking and the copic airbrush to complete the colouring of the bird.

This card is based on Sandy Allnock's card.  Again, I used Tim's Santa stamp and coloured with copics.  It was a much smaller Santa, so I thought it needed more - I added the red strip of paper.  All coloured with copics.

Day 3 of the Holiday Online Class - 2 cards!!

The first card is based on Christina Kowalczyk's card.  I didn't have the die cut for the snowflake, so I used one of Tim Holtz's grunge snowflake stamps and cut it out.
The second cards are based on Julie Ebersole's card.  I used one of Tim Holtz's embossing folders and some other Basic Grey Christmas paper - last year, I think.  The photo isn't very clear.  The snowflakes are from Martha Stewart's punch.

Another card from the Online Holiday Card Class Day 2

This card is based on Kristina Werner's sample.

thanks for stopping by!

Online Holiday Card Class Day 2

I am working hard to catch up on the amazing cards that are being created for our online class.  Here are 3 cards from day 2 - three different designers made cards and I will eventually get them done.  Here is the 'neon' version from Lisa Spangler.  It was fun using such bright colours for a Christmas card!

20 La La Land Angels as ornaments

My husband's work is having a fundraiser for a local food bank and asked if I would make the angels for the Christmas tree.  I chose the Angel from La La Land - loved Marci and it would be great to colour her many times over.

Online Holiday Card Class - day 1

Good Morning! I know it is Halloween, but I was able to complete the first part of day one's class.  The cards are based on the design by Kristina Warner - I used a Sunshine Designs stamp and coloured the image with copics.  I'll make the envelopes tonight.  Thanks for the great project - perfect for small gifts that a 3x3 card is better than a regular card!

Our cousins' just had a baby - here is their card!

Two new cards from La La Land's Halloween Release!

I had a great time creating these - the La La Land images are coloured with copics and I used glossy accents to highlight certain areas.  On the first card, I used Tim Holtz's seasonal paper, the spider die, and the clock.  The spider is painted with distress ink and then glossy accents.  The clock is also painted with distress ink and then sprayed with pearl accents.  Both are grungeboard.
 In this image, I used my airbrush with copics to create the background, the Tim Holtz die for the tree - Dyan's Dylusion spray (chocolate) and then stickles on top.  The witch is coloured with copics and, again, I highlighted areas with glossy accents.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!

World Card Making Day

I do have a card to share, that I finished before leaving for the weekend.  I used some techniques learned in the kick start class - using white dots to make the image pop and the use of glossy accents.

Happy World Card Making Day!

Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians, too.  I am away but celebrated WCM Day with at trip to another one of my favourite stamp stores 'One Crazy Stamper', in Bolton, Ontario.  Lora has an online store, too - it's awesome! It was so great to see Lora - next time we will spend more time together, for sure!
I will celebrate the day by organizing my new stash and of course, having turkey dinner with family!

Kick Start Class - Day 11

Well, I didn't have time to finish all of the cards given in the 2 weeks so now I am completing them when I have time.  They are in no particular order - but there are some truly excellent ideas.  Here is the AI Owl stamp with the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp - the card is coloured with copics and glassy accents on his eyes.
