National Popcorn Day

Hi there,

I heard today is National Popcorn Day!! Yay! So I made a card in honor of it.Who doesn't love popcorn!  I used this adorable image from The Cat's Pajamas. It's a Valentine/Love set but I wanted to use the popcorn image for today. I didn't add the love sentiment in case I want to use it a different way.

Die cuts used:
Paper Smooches Polka Dot Border Die

Happy Stamping and coloring!

Happy New Year!

Hi there,

I'm just now getting around to making a few New Years cards.  I managed to work on one today and do a little coloring too!  This cute little snow peep is from Unity. It's not a new image, I got it last year.   Do you struggle for layouts?  I know I do.  Thats always my starting point and I usually get my color palette from the Designers papers.  The DP is from My Minds Eye Christmas On Market Street, The image is From Unity Let's Get Slushed. The sentiment was heat embossed with Stampendous Pirate Gold embossing powder (one of my favs).

I've taken classes from Copic each time they have come to teach in my area of Phoenix AZ And those classes have been very helpful to me.  I always go back to the booklets I've gotten for reference on how to color things.  You can check out the classes HERE . I'll be taking a couple later this month as well.  Ive also taken lots of card classes in the past from Jennifer Dove she has a beginners coloring class through Annie's Crafts to check out. Her blog is Just4FunCrafts and she also does Copic Boot Camps for beginners and advanced coloring which I have done as well!

Christmas Pup

Hi there,

It's finally Christmas Eve. Hope you all have your shopping finished.  I just wanted to share one last Christmas card I made for my friends daughter.  It's this cute little dog from Avery Elle called Happy Howl-days. Also included is the sentiment and snowflakes.  I stamped the dog onto a Cas-ual Fridays Tag and colored with Copics. DP is from Authentique Retro Christmas and some enamel dots from Carta Bella Christmas Delivery. Inks are from Hero Arts Red Royal and Green Hills, Memento Olive Green.

Here's to a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
