Happy Birthday

I made this a modification of the MOJO 136 challenge for this week. I wanted to try and make my flower in layers and stamped and cut till I had layered the petals. The picture may not show it, but I used a variety of shades of orange in my Copic markers. I cut the Happy Birthday with my spellbinders and then used Wild Honey Distress Ink on the edge. The paper is Wild Asparagus by My Mind's Eye. I put is on blue as there is a hint of blue in the paper.

Hat's Off

MOJO Monday Sketch 136

It is that time of the year when I need to think of cards for graduation. I made this one using the Mojo sketch for this week. The paper is called Hat's Off from Reminisce. The paper has stars on one side and hats on the other. A fun paper to use. Spellbinder circles were used for the image. A Fiskars punch was used for the scallop border

MOJO 135

Fueled by Caffeine from Our Craft Lounge is the stamp used for this card. It seemed perfect for the Mojo sketch this week. The paper is from Paper Loft. Copic markers B02, E25 and YR65 were used along with the Spellbinder ovals. I used Tea Dye distress to finish off the card.

Made for a Friend

This cute little Scottie dog is by Whipper Snapper. I made this card for a good friend of mine that lives in Oklahoma. We like to give each other a challenge design and see what we can exchange. We did this a few months ago and I thought I would share with you. Copic Cool and Warm Gray tones were used to color with. A small Hero Arts heart gem was added. The paper is IDO from American Crafts. It is a two sided paper and both were used for this card. Of course I used my Spellbinder Ovals and a Martha Stewart punch to finish the card.

Nature Trail Ted

This little bear from Penny Black has so many possibilities. I used We R Memory Keepers paper to select my colors and provide the base for the card. For his bibs I used my Copic blender marker (0) to lift the color off my Copic orange marker and then applied to my paper to obtain the washed out effect. (I forgot to write down the name and number of the marker used). I cut the image with Spellbinders large labels and then finished the card with a simple greeting cut with Spellbinder ovals. So simple and so much fun to make. Hope you enjoy.

Weighty Matters Card Two

I took time to make another card from the Cornish Heritage Farms set Weighty Matters. The paper I used was Herb Garden from the Paper Loft. I colored the image with a variety of Copic markers and again distressed with tea dye. Again I used Spellbinders to cut my image and sentiment. This set is going to be so much fun to use.

Weighty Matters

When I saw this stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms I just had to buy it. I used copic BG10 for the color on the scale, Memento Rich Cocoa to stamp with and Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Tea dye. The Paper is American Crafts Letterbox for the print and cream, while the brown is Bazzill. I used my spellbinders to cut both the dog and the sentiment. A very simple little card, but fun to make. Hope you enjoy.

I decided to really try something different. The layout is from Mojo Monday week 134. The sentiment on this card is Thankful Flourishes from Our Craft Lounge. The paper is from October Afternoon and Bazzill. Of course I used my favorite tools, Copic YR02 and Y08 for the flower and Spellbinders for the sentiment. A Martha Stewart punch was the final tool used.

EiEi Hello

This is such a cute stamp. The stamp is from Our Craft Lounge called Eiei Hello. It is actually 3 stamps put together using the masking technique. I will not take credit for the image setup. I borrowed the idea from someone when searching the internet for ideas. The paper is from American Crafts Letterbox. Spellbinder circle and ovals and Copic markers were used. A little added touch was when I enhanced the black on the cow using Sparkly fluff: Eyeliner Black by Our Craft Lounge. It just made her sparkle a little more.

This cute little girl is Daydream from Penny Black. She was colored using Copic Markers. The paper is from Three Bugs in a Rug. The sentiment is from Stampavie. I used Spellbinders for the circles. Two of my favorite tools are my Copic Markers and my Spellbinders. I made her for my friends at Fond Memories.
Pay a visit to Walnut Grove MN and check out some of the best little stores around. Of course one of those is my favorite LSS. Fond Memories at the Creamery keeps up on the latest items any paper crafter needs.
