SCS Color Challenge Tuesday - Tangerine Pixie Kisses

This was a fun challenge from SCS - Tuesday Color Challenge CC190. I used some scrap cardstock along with my Penny Black Beautiful Day stamp. I colored her with Copics and colored pencils. The sentiment is a dollar stamp from Archiver's.

SCS SC200 - B&W Happy Birthday

I made this for my little sister's 20th birthday next week. I followed the Tuesday Challenge over at SCS. I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder for the top of the card and then used my Doodlebug Floral Fancy DP for the bottom. The squares are also made with my CB and the flower are from the Stampendousset called Flower Tops. I dusted them with glitter and added gemstone and then popped them on top of the squares.

Triangle Box - Butterfly

I'm trying to catch up on all the challenges over at SCS. This is the Triangle Box that was a challenge for Wednesday. Directions for it are at this link. I used some scrap cardstock and use my Basic Grey Medallion Stamps with my Versamark ink pad for the background. The Butterfly is Basic Grey's Bohemia stamp inked with Color Box Chalk ink in Wisteria. I added gemstones and Liquid Pearls for the tail.

Joy Fold - Beauty of Dreams

This was a fun card to make. I love this saying and I thought the colors were great for the season we are in!

This technique is called the Joy Fold. Beate gives a great tutorial on this at Splitcoasters.
I used Timber Brown Stazons ink and added clear embossing powder over the sentiment.
Although you can't see, I outlined the butterfly in Martha Stewart's copper glitter. I also used Martha's border punch. Paper is KC and Company.

Happy Birthday Card and My First Entry

Hello Everyone!

I'm so excited to have my very own blog now! It's has been great looking at everyone else's so I have decided to play the sharing game and start my own.

My first card I would like to share with you has been created with my new Penny Black stamp. I still need to get better at taking pictures but that will be changing soon when I get my new camera!! WHOOOO!!
This stamp was colored with a mixture of Prisma colored pencils and Copic markers. I only have about 7 Copics. They are really expensive and I'm still saving for them. Maybe that will be a good Christmas gift from my hunnie this year! I added Stickles and bling for the final touch.
Well thanks for looking and I hope to have more on here soon.
