Here is my latest in Bella creations. This is one of the newer released Bellas. I love this one, it's so much fun! Again, I colored her with copic markers. I can't remember the name of the company that the paper came from but I love it too. I added a few gemstones for some sparkle and viola, a cute card for submission of the Friday Bellarific Sketch Challenge. Enjoy!!

For You card using a stamp by Sarah Kay

OMG! I absolutely LOVE these stamps by Sarah Kay...I want more...LOL!!! No, seriously, these have to be one of the cutest stamps on the market and I only have 2 of them, can you believe it!?!?! I had so much fun coloring her in with my Copic markers. I wish the pink on her hat was a little more subtle but hey...I've only got 62 Copics and only 2 of them are light enough, almost too light...I mosaiced (is that even a word??) this card, I really like the mosaic look, it draws the eye to the image more, well I think it does. I inked up the edges of each 1" square with a distressing ink by Ranger Industries, it's the rose one, it gives it a more vintage look and I like that. I then mounted each square onto a piece of coordinating CS about 1/16 of an inch bigger than the original image so that nothing was showing on the outside, just the inside...I inked up the whole thing with ink from CTMH.

Anyway, I hope you like my newest creation! Leave a comment, it makes me smile!

Thinking of You card

Here is my latest creation. Stamp set used was from Whiff Of Joy stamps. I love this stamp. Also used was Swirly Clouds, also from WOJ, and the dirt is a stamp set from Close To My Heart. I used my copics to color the image. I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the CS background. I love how this card turned out. Another sentiment that could be used is "I miss you" but I chose "Thinking of you" for this one. I'm not sure what I will do with this card but I really wanted to try out my new stamps. I couldn't just stamp the image and color it, I had to turn it into something right?!?! I hope you like it!

Here is my latest (hm...and only) Bella card. I submitted this one for the Bellarific Monday Sketch! Cross your fingers that it gets selected to be displayed on her blog :)
I used Bubblebella, colored her in with Copic markers and blinged her up some with the Spica Glitter Markers. I really love how she turned out. Paper and CS are from Close to my Heart, colors are Tulip and Creme Brulee! The ribbon is just something I found that matched the Tulip CS closely. The sentiment is also from Stamping Bella and it's on pop dots. This is a mosaic style card. Basically I stamped the image first, colored it in, then cut it into 4 even squares, then I mounted it on CS and cut it to the same size then double matted it onto a coordinating CS. I roughed up the edges a little and VIOLA! A really cute card!!
The camera washed it out a little, it's much prettier in person!

Hope you like it!

Fathers Day Card using 2 different Riley stamps

Whew! It's been a LONG time since I've posted anything...Better get back on track. I recently obtained a new little pup. He's a black lab and his name is Samson. He's 7 weeks old today. I'll post some pics of him later..for now here is the card I made for my dad from my kids for Fathers Day. I used 2 different Riley Moose stamps from Hanna Stamps. I combined the two stamps to make one scene. I got the idea from another blog but I can't remember the name. I loved it so much that I re-created it myself. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I used my Copic markers to color the images. I created the lake and the little ledge that the Tent Riley is on using just a plain fine point marker then colored the image in with my copics. The size of the card is an unfamiliar size, it's like 3X7 or something along those lines :)

Thanks for looking!

The "REEL" Deal

This is a card I made for Father's Day using Hanna Stamps Riley Moose. I just love this little moose. Anyway, the point of this post is to show off my use of the Copic markers. This was my first attempt at using them and blending them. I think I did good! What do you all think?? Feel free to leave me a comment!
The card base and papers, and the Happy Fathers Day stamp are from Close to my Heart.

Some more of my art work.

Pluto page

Here is a page I did for a swap using my Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge. Enjoy!

PIG PEN post

OK, so below are FINALLY some pics of my scrap loft. I LOVE my loft. I try to spend as much time as I can in there. The first pics are of my workstation. I will soon be getting some table tops from IKEA and mounting them to the wall, it will be an L shaped workspace and the bakers rack will move to another wall or be removed all together. The other pics are of my cutting station, my built in (but not yet built) bookcases, and my other storage. I hope you enjoy looking at the pics and getting inspired as much as I like working in there. Unfortunately it looks nothing like this now since it's a MESS!!!
