Valentine's Mixed Media Rose Card.


Hello there friends out in blogging land. Today I have a quick little mixed media card to show you. I had a lot of fun making this card. I love the bold colors and splatters and then all the surrounding white. I've really been obsessed with these clean and simple cards lately. Too bad I have bins and bins of flowers. Our styles changes so much over time, isn't that funny? 

I have used my Fun Stampers Journey ATC Rose stamp. You can watch me create and assemble this card over on my YouTube Channel or scroll down to watch it here on my blog.

Clean and Simple Cards -- Fun Stampers Journey!

I have made a few quick Fun Stampers Journey cards here and there over the last few months. I thought I'd just share a few of them in one post. I have really enjoyed coloring other things besides people when creating these cards. It really reminds me I don't have to spend hours and hours on a card. Even though I really love doing that, too. Sometimes, I just don't have that kind of time, you know? Plus, I've really been drawn to Clean and Simple Cards lately. 


This first one I made using the Gifted Wings Set, Item# SS-0040. I colored the image with my Copic Markers and then took my Journey Glaze item AD-0003 and covered the entire glass area of the jar with the glaze giving the jar a glossy "glass" look.

Here's another project I made I used my ATC Stamp Rose Garden AT-0025. I used the banner from my Pennant Banner Die Set DI-0004 for the scalloped border along the top of me mini bag. 
Again, I used my Copics to color the image. R32, R35, R37, R39 and N5. The backckground is BG10, BG0000, N0, N1, N3. The Grass and leaves are my favorite YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97 and some N5 for shadows. The ground is E30, E31, E33 and E0000.

Here's a fun little card I created using my Daisy Blooms DI-0010. I love the 3d look of this card. I also used my  Journey Glaze item AD-0003, Journey Sparkle Dust AC-0013 and the fabulous Bloom Tool AC- 0073.

There's a video below on this card, too.

Prima Coffee Break Card Set!

Hi there!
Today I have a few Prima Cards to share with you all. I have used one of my favorite collections from Prima. This paper collection is called Coffee Break. I just love the way the Gold Mica flakes look against the black paper. These cards were really so much fun to make even though there's not as much coloring as I normally do. All the fun textures and dimension still gives these cards so much details. 

The sentiments are Lili of the Valley's, Everyday Grungy Sentiments.

Hello my fellow crafty peeps!


Hi Everyone!
 
It's been a hectic year already and it's just starting.
 
So many new possibilities for me this year that I'm so excited about. I'm sad to share that I'll be taking a break from teaching Copic Classes. As much as I'm sad this is such a great way for me to focus on my new Journey. Which involves Fun Stampers Journey! I'm thrilled about the opportunity that I have with this company. Taking a break from my classes will give me the chance to focus on this and still have time to be creative with my Design Teams! So YAY!
 One door closes and another is always waiting to be opened, right?!
 
So I went to CHA last Saturday and I loved seeing my pals. Jamie Dougherty and the Bloom Girls DT are ABSOLUTELY a blast! Jamie took us all out to dinner and then we went to the Prime Blogger Networking Party. It was a lot of fun and it was so great getting to meet the faces behind the blog! I also got to walk the floor with my dear friend and Upline Cindy. We walked that show for 3 hours and I cannot believe how time flew by. It was fun. Hopefully next year I'll be able to go for more than a day!
 
I haven't had much time over the last few weeks with the Holiday's, Work, CHA, Family.. but I did get a chance to sit and color a little last week. Here's a quick card I through together using 

 
Have you seen the new Bloom Girl Stamps! Oh my goodness!
You are going to LOVE these. Here's a card I created using the new 'Bloom Girl Stamp Emily' and the background was created using The Bloom Girl Stencil 'Spark'.  I colored then gorgeous image with my Copics of course.

I hope you enjoy my card. I have lots of posts coming soon. I'm in the process of scheduling them. :)

Merry Christmas Eve!

 
I can't believe it's Christmas Eve.
We are having Christmas at my house this year and I'm really excited about it.
 
Yesterday I cleaned.
Today I'm going to be setting up the tables.
 Right now Ralph's making me breakfast. :)
 Kids are barely getting up.. well the teenage boy isn't.
 

Today I'm off and I will have to get up and be at work in the morning at 5am. I hope this will be the last year I have to work on Christmas. That's what I want for Christmas!

Good things are happening in 2015! I can feel it.

Here's an ornament I made using the Julie Nutting wooden ornaments. I painted it with acrylic paints and embossed in gold and used crackle accents a the new Prima Finnabair glitter. I really LOVE the way it came out. The photos really doesn't do it justice.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
