Sweet Valentine's Day Card

My last post for today...Now I am all caught up! As you can see I alway make extra images to turn into cards, this time everything is the same as my bingo card...except for the inside. I made this into a Sweet Valentine's Day Card. The sentiment and baby rose stamp is by Stampin' Up. Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Copic Crafter's Bingo Card

We over at the Copic Crafter's Online Group ( http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CopicCrafters/) are having a game of Copic Bingo. You maybe asking yourself "What is Copic Bingo?" ... Well it is a game that one of the members came up with for fun and for us to show off some of our hard work. How the game is played is each person whom signed up to be apart of it, makes a bingo card and submits a few words related to Copic's the game creator. She then sent out a master list of all the words, we each chose 15 to make up the the playing cards. These were the words that I chose. She then used random.org to mix up the names and paired us up with someone to exchange with (done via mail). Once everyone receives there cards, she will then throw out 3 or 4 words per day. The first person to fill their card completely has "BINGO". The prize, you might be wondering is a Copic Marker, of course! I am very excited to be a part of this game, since it is something so different from just another swap. Don't get me wrong I love swaps, but this is a bit more exciting since it is new to me! Anyways, On my card I used a House Mouse Stamp for my image. My ink of choice is Momento black. The cardstock is by Stampin' Up and the desinger paper is by Karen Foster. I used some new toys such as the Label 8 Nestabilities by Spellbinders and the Little Hearts Embossing Cuttlebug Folder by Provocraft. The ribbon is by Celebrate it Holiday Collection that I picked up at Michael's on clearance after Christmas. The embellishment's are from my stash! I am always on the look-out for cool little things...so I never know where they are from or by whom! I used my Copic Markers, Spica Glitter Pens, Black Micron Pen, and old faithful... my White Gel Pen. The copic markers that I used are ... Mice - E31, E33, E35, E42, & R20 ~ Roses - R29, R35, R43, YG93, YG95, & YG97. The Spica Glitter Pens that I used are 14, 17, 19, & 21.For the inside I built my playing card part on the computer using a table in Microsoft Word. I hope you have enjoyed our little twist on BINGO! Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Valentine's Day Cards

As you can see I had made extra images when I created my Candy Box; so I immediately made them into Valentine's Day Cards. All the coloring and mulberry paper are the same. The cardstock is by Stampin' Up and the designer paper is by It Takes Two and The Paper Studio. The sentiment stamps are by Stampin' Up. The accessories and ribbon are from my stash! I have a couple more things to post and then back to creating again, since I have a few projects due for my online group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CopicCrafters/) and local club (http://www.thestampshoppe.com/)! Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions feel free to contact me!

Valentine's Day Candy Box

This is my project that I did for my local stamp club at The Stamp Shoppe in Schofield WI(http://www.thestampshoppe.com/) for January. This is the post that I was keeping quiet until I got to show everyone at the club. Heidi (one of the owners) gave us this photo box in December which was all black to decorate how ever we wanted. I put a piece of acetate transparency where the cutout was and covered it in two different designer papers by The Paper Studio. Then I stamped my images with Momento black ink and colored them with Copic Markers, Spica Glitter Pens, and did some extra detail lines around images with my black Micron Pen. The stamp of the mouse with heart balloons is by Great Impressions, the bunny stamp is by House Mouse, their Happy Hoppers Line, and the sentiment at the top is by Stampin' Up. The mulberry paper that is under the colored images is by Stampin' Up. I actually raised the stamped images on the front and the back with dimensionals. As for the eyelets, they came from my stash, so I have no idea where I got them at! LOL, gotta love the stash! The copic markers that I used are...Mouse - C1, C3, & RV00 ~ Balloons - C0, RV14, Y08, V04, YG05, & R29 ~ Bunny - C0, C1, C3, & RV00 ~ Stuffed Bunny Toy - E35, E53, E55, & RV00 - Hearts - R29 ~ Shadow Area on both images - C1 & C5. The only Spica Glitter Pen I used in the different area's is Clear 00. My plan for this box is for Michael to have on his desk at work; first I have to fill it with Hershey's Chocolate Kisses! I really enjoyed decorating this box, hope that it gives you some idea's! Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Sending You Sunshine... RAK Card

Wow, another group of cards made! This card in particular is for my online Copic Crafter Group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CopicCrafters/). I have signed up to be a part of a year long card exchange, we have 24 people in total. What we do is ... two names are drawn each month and the others make cards and send to those lucky people. Once your name is drawn, it can not be drawn again. So this way each person makes two cards a month, sends them out and when it's their turn they only make one; but receive 23 in the mail! It's a nice surprise; something wonderful instead of bills or junk mail! Anyways, on this card I used a new Cuttlebug Folder to make the tiny raised dots on the turquoise cardstock. The stamp of the bunny in the flowers, I have no idea who designed this stamp, the sentiment stamps are by Inky Antics, Great Impressions, and Amuse. All the cardstock is by Stampin' Up and the designer paper is by Karen Foster. I used my Copic Markers, Spica Glitter Pens, and Micron Black Pen. The copic numbers are ... Bunny - N1, N2, & RV23 ~ Flowers & Butterflies - Y23, BG000, BV20, RV00, YG05, & YG11. The spica numbers are 13, 14, 16, & 18. The ribbon is a left over scrap from my stash. Oh almost forgot to mention...the sketch I used is from Mojo Monday (http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/). Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions or idea's feel free to contact me!

Hey Cupcake...Birthday Card

I designed this card from an old Mojo Monday Sketch (http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/). It is serving double duty, since Stampin' Royalty (http://stampinroyalty.blogspot.com/) is a new blog and this is there first challenge.The only rule they had is simple, create a card, scrapbook layout or 3D project using a birthday theme as your inspiration. This adorable stamp is by Whipper Snapper Designs. The cardstock is by Stampin' Up and the designer paper is by Imaginisce. I used Copic Markers, Spica Glitter Pens, Micron Purple and Black Pens, and my trusty old while gel pen. The copic numbers as follows...Mouse - N1,N2,N3, & R20 ~ Presents and Confetti - RV00, RV17, BG000, BG05, BV02, YG25, & YR65. The spica numbers are 02, 06, 10, 13, 14, 15, & 18.

Sunshine RAK Card

This card was made for my online group, Copic Crafters (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CopicCrafters/). We have a section dedicated to our members, where they can ask for Sunshine RAK Cards (Random Acts of Kindness) to be sent to loved ones whom are ill, been in an accident, or just need some cheering up. This particular card I created for a member's father whom is ill. He enjoys hunting and is an avid gun collector, which is why I choose this image by Endless Designs. The sentiment inside, I have no idea whom designed it. It is another item that has been in my stash for awhile. LOL! The sentiment on the envelope is by Inky Antics. The cardstock used is Stampin' Up and designer paper is Sugartree. The Copic Markers that I used are as follows... Antlers - E40 & E53. Elk Body - E31, E35, E55, E74 & R12. The Spica Glitter Pens that I used are 00 (Clear) & 19 (Sand). For the extra details I used the Black Micron Pen and White Gel Pen. I sponged the image and sentiment inside card with Stampin' Up Ink. If anyone has any questions about this group or things I may have forgotten to mention in my post, feel free to contact me! Thanks for your time in checking my new card!

Don't Ask! Christmas Card

This is my very first post, a new year, a new idea! My local stamp shoppe group meets once a month. Each month we have a challenge sketch to follow and goodies that the owner gives us to use as another challenge. Since the holidays are so busy, she left it up to us to find our own sketch challenge. Well this is mine. I am also a part of an online group that has challenges once a month. This is the card that I made from their sketch! As far as the goodies that were given to me, that project is completed also, but I am waiting a little longer to post it. Lets see what all I used....Stampin' Up Cardstock, Copic Markers, and Designer paper from my stash. I have a bit of a paper addiction, so I don't always know where it is from! Wow...That wasn't that hard to do! I think this blog is going to turn out to be my second addiction...papercrafting will always be my first!
