Happy birthday card!

OMG it's been FOREVER since I have posted here.  I had such great intention at the beginning of the year and then well that never happened.  It's been quite a year as you would know if you follow me on Youtube.

But it's not the same to actually post a story here.

Anyway I needed to make a b-day card and the image from the East Wind was just PERFECT for this!  You can find her here.  I don't color much with my copics anymore.  Some of my markers are clogging up.... sad really.  I have been doing so much more mix media.

The paper that I used is probably discontinued before  but it was Kaiser Craft Lush.  You might still be able to find some on E-bay.  That's the best to find the stuff that you can't get your hands upon.  That or maybe some destashing.  I think this was the 1st time that I used that paper pack!  How bad is that?!?  I know I used to do so many more cards than I do now.  Now I mostly do videos about using your scraps!  Something that we have loads right?!?  When I started that series I had 3 bins filled to the brink.

So yeah before you go off somewhere else lol here's the card:
I didn't do a lot of embellishments because I really wanted the image to be front and center!  I only added one little lace heart that I purchased at the dollarstore!  I thought that was the perfect embellishment.  The sentiment was from create with TLC but I don't think she still has it in her store.  But you can find her blog here.

So that is is for me.  I wonder if there will be any comments at all this time, it's been so very long.  Not entering this in any challenges.  All the visits will be from you guys that are still following.  Hope that there as still some!

Big hugs and have a great week!

Goodluck card

Hello!  Hope you are staying warm and safe.  We have been battling crazy cold weather here.  Well in keeping with my resolution here is another post just for the blog that won't be shown on my channel.

One of my colleagues gave her resignation before the holidays and her last working day was the 2nd of January.  I figured it would be nice to give her a card signed by the entire department.  So I prepared one.  I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do.  I knew that she loves biking and I had a perfect stamp that had not yet been used.  I believe I had gotten this when it was on special with the thought of making her a b-day card.  Since that is not happening now it was the time to use it because who knows when I next will feel inspired with this stamp.

Don't know about you but there are many stamps in my collection that are not being used and that should be used... all because I don't see the perfect opportunity and since I don't make card as often well this doesn't help.

Anyway here is the card that I made.
The bicycle was stamped over book text.  I used some gel pens to color in the flowers.  The sentiment was also stamped on a book page (I used the 1st page where there's the title and there is lots of empty space that can be used for this).  I couldn't find a good sentiment and I have lots of letter stamps, this was the perfect opportunity to use them.  I have used my spellbinder circle and scallop circle.  And lots of layering.

I really liked how the card came out.  I figured it was elegant and just sweet in general.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Catch the bug blog - Anything goes challenge
  2. Crafters castle - Anything goes
  3. Qkr stampede - anything goes
  4. Moving along with the times - Flowers
  5. Crafty hazelnuts patterned paper - using patterned paper
That's it for me for today!  Have a great Sunday and see you all soon!

Fluff the dragon

Hello!  The crickets have been having a field day on my blog... yes I know it's been so long since I have shared something just here just for you all that still follow my blog! 

I wanted to 1st of all wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!  May 2018 bring you health and be filled with joy as well as crafty fun!

When I saw the dragon image that Unky created for the East Wind, I just knew this would make a perfect card for my daughter that just ADORES dragon.  You can find the sweet image here.

The background that I have used for this was made with a recycled envelope that I covered with paint and left over paper pieces!  You can find that on my youtube channel here if you are interested in making that:

It's a great way to recycle and to make very cheap paper that is totally UNIQUE.

Here is the card that I have made.

The image was colored with some coloring pencils as well as gel pens.  I glued this on black cardstock to make it pop.  The sentiment was made by my friend Lisa Decosse.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. C.R.A.F.T challenge - anything goes
  2. Creative knockouts - Anything goes
  3. Hiding in my craftroom - Freestyle
So I will try in 2018 to be here more often and just post that are done here!!!  Because let's be honest this was my very 1st platform and I should continue it!  I have just been SOOOO busy making a video a day in 2017!  yeah that's a whole lot of videos lol

Snow toasty again

Hello!  It's Friday!!!  Wooop woop the only bad part about it being Friday is that boy oh boy does time fly by!!!!  Can't believe we are at the end of October already!

This means that soon there will be snow around here... And I'm never quite ready for it!  I don't like the cold and wet lol

Talking of cold... I have a project to share that fits this today!  I'm using a brand new release image from Sandra Caldwell called Snow toasty again and you can find this image in her store here.

I have made a video of my process if you are interested:

The tag is made out of 5 recycled security envelopes that I have glued together!  I used FINALLY my Jane Davenport water color... well 2 of them! 
I have colored the snowman with my copics.  I added a foam snowflake and a gem as well as very soft fibers.  Finally the sentiment is from a happy planner set of stickers for holidays!

I hope that will have inspired you to go and check out the Etsy store for great images and to recycle your envelopes into other things!

Have a great day and weekend everyone!

Snow Tasty

Hello!  It's Friday!  I'm so happy.  It's been a hard week!  I haven't been feeling well... and yeah really need a weekend. 

But to start it off I have the best thing EVER a new release image from Sandra Caldwell that you can find here.

I also did something that I don't usually do... which is to tape the video of my making one of my typical Christmas cards :)  Hope you enjoy that video:

and here is my card.  The paper is from American Craft and I think it was from the target dollar spot.

I added some ribbon and just had fun coloring this guy with my copics.

I'm not sure if I will be entering challenges or not...

So that's it for me!  Have a fabulous day and weekend!!!!
